7 Reasons Why You Need A Coach

 

1. Having A Life Coach Makes You More Accountable.

This is one of the biggest things that can help you by having a coach.  You all of a sudden become more accountable to follow through on whatever you’re procrastinating on or stopping yourself from doing.  We all place limits on ourselves.  We all have limiting beliefs and patterns that are holding us back, preventing us from fulfilling our true potential.  When you have a life coach that is there to push you beyond your limits and what you thought was possible, a breakthrough happens.  Your entire belief system changes, and you take your life to another level.

Not only that, but most of us already KNOW WHAT TO DO… BUT DON’T DO WHAT WE KNOW. A life coach is someone that gets you to do it.  They’re all about taking massive action. No stories. Only action and results.  Without a coach, you’re only accountable to yourself – and that’s the problem for most people.  When you’re only accountable to yourself, you can come up with stories and excuses of why you didn’t do it.  With a coach, none of that stuff flies and suddenly you’re accountable to another human being, which forces you to show up at a higher level.

Why e-learning is not just an option, but a necessity.

There was a time when most experts – such as speakers, trainers, consultants and thought leaders – delivered one-off face-to-face programs, and nothing else. A few – the smart few – complemented their programs with electronic products, but they were in the minority. Now it’s the other way around. Clients and audiences expect more than just a keynote, just a training workshop or just a coaching session. It’s fast becoming the norm that you’ll send your audience a pre-event survey before your keynote, or offer a follow-up webinar to your training course, or provide password-protected resources for your coaching clients. If you don’t offer this form of “e-learning”, you’ll fall behind other competitors who do offer this and more.

Four Overlooked Benefits of Telemarketing

(and How to Make the Most of Them)

Whenever I can, I include telemarketing as part of a comprehensive lead-generation program. When it comes to setting sales appointments, populating a database with decision-maker names, or filling seats at an event, there’s no contact method that’s more direct or more effective. The results of telemarketing are usually measurable, too, which is also a rare benefit for any campaign tactic.Here are four primary benefits to telemarketing that are often overlooked, but can help you derive even more value from your calling programs.

1. Get in on the ground floor with a new customer
Ongoing telemarketing gives you the opportunity to be that incumbent. Cold-calling enables you open a dialogue with the new, undiscovered people, often before they’ve even begun the buying process. Telemarketing is a very direct method of identifying those people.When you’re in an account first, you can be the one to educate them, help them set benchmarks, and even help them format their RFP. It may be a long and nurturing process, but it can yield a lucrative relationship.

2. Generate key customer and marketplace data

If you have a strategic, targeted list of prospects, your telemarketing operation can help fill in some of the blanks in your database with key information. This information can then be used to focus your future sales and marketing communications. For example, you can generate data of a prospect’s usage of competitive products or services. Eventually, you can segment your database and target specific campaigns to specific situations for greater impact.You can also arm your callers with a few key questions that you would like to have answered. As they log the answers, you’re generating your own primary research.
