Coaching Business - How to Outsmart and Outplay Your Competitors Powered By Docstoc
					There are just so many things that you need to keep in mind when running just any type of business.
There's your customers, your marketing campaign, your products and services, your pricing, etc. But if
there's one thing that you cannot simply leave out of the equation, it would be your competitors. There
are people who are selling the same products and who are out there to win the business of your
prospects. It's important that you do something to ensure that they will not succeed otherwise, you'll
fail.



Here's how you can make that happen:



First step is to study the people that you're going up against closely. Google search your chosen niche
plus the word "coaching." Then, list down the top 10 sites that are appearing on the search page results.
These are your biggest competitors. These are the people who are getting more attention. Study their
website, know their marketing techniques, be familiar with their promotional gimmicks, and the things
that make them stand out from the crowd. Also, know why people love them. From here, you can easily
figure out how you can outplay them. Create plans of action that will help you make your programs
more effective, your internet marketing campaign more compelling, and your website more attractive
compare to theirs'.



Put your customers on top of your priority list. Nobody can beat you if you commit yourself to making
each of your customers extremely happy. Let me tell you now that this will not be easy and most of the
time, it will require you to take that extra mile but you can be assured that it will be worth it. Happy
customers are those who become loyal clients through the years. They're also the kind of customers
who'll promote your products and services through word-of-mouth advertising. That's one free
marketing technique that really works.



Always try something new. Being very creative would always work to your advantage. Don't be content
with your programs even if other people think that they're already great. Instead, continuously find new
ways on how you can improve them. It's important that you always offer something new especially for
your returning clients. Give them something to look forward to and they'll surely come back for more.



Listen to your clients. One of the biggest mistakes that other ebusiness owners commit is that they do
not pay attention to their client base. Well, listening to these people can actually help you. You'll be
surprised as to how much you can learn from them. For me, this has helped me make my programs
more compelling to their eyes and that's definitely something that made huge difference on my sign up
rate.
Supercharge your internet marketing campaign. Sometimes, outplaying your competitors would mean
being more visible in the online arena. If your potential clients see your name everywhere, they'll most
likely to think of you first when they're thinking about signing up to a coaching program. So, make sure
your internet marketing campaign is extremely effective, focused, and very aggressive.
