Modern Marketing Tip of The Day - Make sure the “voice” you speak to your customer community with is genuine. The old-school, generic, impersonal, stuffy, business voice will be tuned out and distrusted. Relax. Don’t take yourself too seriously. Let your personality, values, and humor shine through. Xxx s.

Social Media Marketing Tip Of The Week - Keep It Real.

Social markets are real relationships between real people who have figured out it is much better to get information from each other rather than a vendor. So be generous and true to who you are. Let your true colors out to play, advise, inform and comment. xxx s. (More free marketing tips at http://acoach4u.com/for-coaches/info-resources-marketing-help-for-coaches/

All You Need To Know About Niches (Part of The Marketing Minutes For Coaches Series) 
- In this video I explain what a niche is, why you might want to consider one, and how to go about narrowing down the possibilities. I put this video together a few years ago, but as this a topic of interest to so many coaches, I thought it was important to include it in this series. Enjoy. xxx S.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A06J0sMQYo8

MARKETING MINUTE TIP #6 - On The Mental Game Of Building A Coaching Practice. 
Hi Gang. Far too many coaches struggle on the journey to establish a viable coaching practice. Learning how to stay on track and overcome the many, many, disappointments is a critical success factor in what I call playing "The Mental Game" of building your practice. Here is a link to the ICF blog where you can see the video. Happy coaching. xxx s.http://coachfederation.org/blog/index.php/6022/
To succeed commercially as a professional coach, there is so much that needs to be taken care of. In addition to acquiring your coach training, you have to figure out how to set up and run a business that attracts enough of your ideal clients. Many coaches have never been in business for ...

About Elaborate Discovery Sessions For Coaching Clients.

Hi Gang. 

The topic of whether or not to do an elaborate Discover Session at the beginning of a coaching relationship came up again recently over on the "Kickass CTI Coaches" Facebook Group. As this is something quite a few newer coaches are interested in, I thought it was worth sharing here, so I have attached my perspective, below. Please feel free to add your thoughts. 

Cheers, 

Steve 

"This is a "different strokes for different folks" issue. Over the years I have experimented with many approaches including discovery sessions. 

I personally do not choose to do them with my clients for a number of reasons. One, I don't want to be seen to charge them extra for a special, longer session, just after they have agreed to work together. (For some clients this does not land well.) 

Secondly, some clients are not yet trusting the relationship and coaching sufficiently to go into many topics as deeply as they might several session down the road. 

Thirdly, when you work with exec or business clients, many of them have a desire to get busy on their specific agenda. 

Fourthly, if I do values, vision, saboteur, etc, all in the first session, many clients have a problem really digesting/integrating/taking in all that great learning into their lives, at one time. 

And finally, I love introducing and mining these very valuable tools/discussions by weaving them into the coaching when the client is really ready, and would most benefit from going deeply into them. It provides great content that will add value to the coaching conversation for months to come. xxx s."

Probably The #1 Rule For Social Media/Web Marketing.

Hi Gang.

When you are writing your web/blog/social media content, keep in mind that there is good research (Nielsen Norman, etc.) that points to the fact that our viewers typically only read about 20% of the words in our articles/site pages.

Thus the importance of keeping it sharp and getting to the point with; relevant titles, short benefit rich paragraphs, bullets and great images – if you want to keep our harried visitors engaged and get your message across. xxx Steve

Social Media Marketing Tip

Quote of the day (from a Northwestern Marketing Prof), "your content is the cheese, and your site is the mouse trap". Meaning your writing, sharing, commenting, blogging, article-writing, YouTubing, etc. serves the purpose of expanding your network, connecting with new people, and pointing them back at your site.

It is on your site/blog that you have the opportunity of engaging them in deeper conversations and offering them something they can say yes to, that begins the nurturing conversations/relationships that will translate in them hiring you. So, be sure to have fresh, relevant and visual "cheese" people. xxx Steve. http://acoach4u.com

These guys are a pleasant surprise for anyone in the GFDF world in South Surrey. Nice selection of treats, including cinnamon buns, many desserts and their bread is a big hit with my discriminating GFDF family. I wish the greatest of success. However, on a small point, I would encourage them to get a little more customer service training for their young staff. A couple of times their staff (not the owner) have not been consciously friendly and welcoming. For example, once we got there right at 10 AM, opening time. I tried the door, but it was still locked. Even though there were at least 3 girls inside, nobody made the effort to acknowledge us, or come to the door and unlock it on time. (Yes I am sure my watch was accurate.) Then, a few minutes later, when they did open up, the girl behind the counter did not welcome us, make eye contact, or smile at us, at all. This is a small issue that I suspect is simply related to young and inexperienced staff, but little things like that can make a big difference in customer loyalty. When they fix this, I would not hesitate to give them 5 stars.

We have 3 daughters who's first cars needed a lot of maintenance. Moe at C J Automotive has proven himself, over and over, as someone you can trust for good honest service at a fair price.

They have re-invented this place. New hands-on partner. New manager. New menu. New friendly, welcoming, can-do, cleaner, brighter attitude. Really enjoyed it and will be back.

I have been to Romer's Kits location many times, so was happy they opened this second one. Love the food. (It has been consistently good during our visits.) Service is great. (This new one has the air of a recently opened place, where everyone is trying hard to please you.) And the river view is nice.

We heard some scratching in our wall and called Ideal. They came promptly, investigated, determined a rat had climbed a trellis and gnawed a hole into our attic. Ideal blocked off the hole, got rid of the rat, and dealt with a wasp nest too. Good follow up. Polite and professional.

Superb coffee. Best mocha I have ever had. Friendly, efficient staff. Clean fresh location. My only complaint is that they have forever spoiled me from enjoying coffee at all the other coffee places around here. Love this place!

Wendy is fantastic at what she does. A consummate and experienced professional, she obviously has a passion for this work. And, I believe, her great gift is helping people step into their strengths, and create healthy and happy lives and relationships. I have no hesitation recommending her for anyone who’s life or relationship is not where they want it.
