Many entrepreneurs, small business owners and other professionals find themselves focused on earning an income, finding new clients and the day-to-day struggle to survive.   Having enough income and cashflow to grow your business rapidly is not an uncommon problem.   I often hear people talking about their expected income for the next day, weeks or months ahead.   They focus on knowing where the next paycheck is coming from because they don't have enough confidence in their existing client base or cashflow.     They fear their income will dry up.

Have you ever felt like that?   If that sounds like you, then it's time to STOP focusing on your income.   It's time to start focusing on a long-term plan for success and diversification.   But how?   How do you free yourself from the day-to-day financial worry and really start to thrive?

The answer simply lies in starting your own high-end coaching program.     A high-end coaching programme (when designed and delivered the right way) will provide enough guaranteed revenue to enable you to stop worrying about money and be free to focus on your long-term success!

This is how the strategy works …

Sell Once a Year to Generate Guaranteed Revenue

• With your high-end coaching programme, if you market and sell the right way, you will only need to focus on the selling once and then you're done for the year.

• Create a program with a limited number of spots,
and you'll only have to sell long enough to fill those spots and then you can focus on serving your clients and creating alternate revenue streams.

• Create a program with a fixed time limit, such as my annual programme, and you only have to sell those spots once per year. Then you've got the commitment for the income, and you're free to focus on other areas of your business. No more worrying month-to-month whether you'll have enough cash for next month; with a high-end coaching program, you can earn enough money to free yourself up for other pursuits.

Free Yourself Up to Look at the Big Picture

One of the biggest benefits for you and your business of creating a high-end coaching program is freeing yourself up to look at the big picture. If you're like most people, you spend countless hours per week working on finding enough business, and the rest of your time goes to satisfying your existing clients. You never have time to think about the long-term plans for your business, or how to diversify your revenue streams.

Once you have the committed income of a high-end coaching program, you can stop spending so much of your time selling yourself and your services because you have a guaranteed revenue stream. Instead, you can focus on creating the other steps to achieve success in your business, and put together a long-term plan for your business!

In order to truly become successful in your own business, you've got to stop focusing on immediate income so you can begin to build a road map for long-term success.     Worrying about your day-to-day income is short-term thinking and can seriously hamper your long-term business success. When you start a high-end coaching program, you get financial commitments for a large portion of your revenue and begin looking at other ways to improve your business success.

So if you want to see an end to your day-to-day financial struggles and the beginning of long-term success, it's time to start your high-end coaching programme!

Picture this image of two boys playing in a garden, trying to catch some birds.

One of the boys rushes around frantically with a net trying to catch the birds. Every time he gets close, the birds fly away. There's lots of squawking, and feathers flying. The other boy stands quietly, holding out some birdseed.

One boy is trying very hard, and is probably exhausted, while the other hardly seems to be working at all.

Which one will get the results he's looking for?

Instinctively you know it's the boy with the birdseed who will be more effective, and a lot less sweaty.

When it comes to marketing and trying to attract clients, you want to act more like that second boy. Unfortunately, though, most people tend to act more like the first.

A lot of the things you might be doing, that are considered to be traditional marketing techniques, might actually be counterproductive. You could well be chasing people away.

Effective marketing techniques used on the wrong market will only provoke resistance, and build defensiveness. You could be running after people, figuratively speaking, with barrages of email, rounds of cold calls and direct mailings, and quite possibly be achieving the exact opposite of what you want.

For example, no matter how effective cold-calling may be for me or someone else, if you detest doing it, your negativity will prevent it from being effective for you.

Even if you are using marketing techniques that are proven to attract clients, if you do them with the negative energy of chasing – if you give off the sense that you are giving simply in order to get - you will end up like the boy who is chasing the birds. Tired and without any bird in the hand.

You want to break down the barriers between you and your prospective clients, not create more of them.

Make sure that the things you are doing marketing-wise, both online and offline, will attract clients to your business. Doing what everyone says is the right thing, but doing it with the wrong energy, won't produce results.   Do the things that feel right to you. That will bring the positive energy into your marketing, and your clients will feel it.

You'll know when you're being a client magnet because it will feel easy. It should feel enjoyable, and you will have an abundance of clients.

Writing a sales letter is a practice in anticipating what your prospects will think, and overcoming their objections. When you're writing your sales copy, it's invaluable to be able to put yourself in your prospects' shoes and predict what they'll think when they read your copy. It may be difficult to predict all of the objections that your prospects will have to your sales letter, but one thing you can easily manage is this: catch the catch. Explain why you're offering such a great deal or such a great product to your prospects, or they won't believe your pitch.

Prospects Look Out for Deals that are Too Good
From an early age, most of us are told "if something sounds too good to be true, it probably is." By adulthood, most people feel that they can judge whether a deal is good or not, but that little doubt lurks in the back of most people's minds. If you do a great job of establishing the value of your product, and justifying your price, people might have trouble trusting you or your sales copy. If you make your product sound "too good to be true," you have to explain yourself to your prospects or risk loosing sales.

Reasons for Offering a Great Deal
A few key phrases can help diffuse worry over a deal being "too good" and convince your prospects that you're on the up-and-up. With one technique, you explain to your prospects why a product like yours normally costs more, and how you've managed to change the production method to realize a cost savings. Then, you can say something like "I can pass along my cost savings to you." This lets the prospect know that you know you're offering a really good deal, and gives them a reason for you offering a good deal. If you don't explain this to them, they'll think that you've misrepresented the value of what you're selling, and will turn away from your product.

Another technique involves presenting yourself as the "good guy" and responsible community member to your prospects. For example, you could tell your prospects that a colleague has recommended that you charge more for your product, but you're "not greedy," so you've chosen to offer it for less. One successful copywriter said "This is such a valuable skill set that I'm offering it at this price so as not to price it out of the hands of the people who need it most."

In most cases, it doesn't really matter how you overcome the "it's too good to be true" objection - just that you address it somehow. When you re-read your sales letter, look at it from the eyes of a potential prospect. If you find yourself thinking "What's the catch?" then you probably need to re-work your copy, or add in some language explaining why you're offering such a great deal. With this technique, you can overcome the mental objections of the prospects, and you're that much closer to making a sale!
