6 Reasons Life Coaching Websites Fail

Life Coaching Websites FailWhy is it that most life coaching websites fail?

That question shouldn’t come as a shock. It may be that your own website isn’t getting you the results you want or expect.

Some people say that there’s too much competition out there. That life coaching websites fail because there’s too many people doing life coaching. Well, I certainly don’t believe that’s true. There’s far, far, far more website designers than life coaches. While there are certainly struggling website designers there’s many more who are squeaking out a living – or better. And there’s more potential life coaching clients out there than website clients.

So if it’s not competition, what is it? Let’s look at a few reasons life coaching websites fail.

Don’t Let a Little Fear Stop You From Doing What You Love

Don't Let a Little Fear Stop You From Doing What You LoveDo you remember the first time you rode a bike as a kid? I do. I remember being scared out of my shorts. I remember my dad saying, ‘son, don’t let a little fear stop you from doing what you love.’

That’s the same lesson I was trying to teach my my little girl the other day when I took her off her training wheels to go on a family bike ride around the neighborhood.

On one hand, she was excited. But at first the excitement was buried under immense fear that she couldn’t do it and was going to get really hurt. She drug her feet (literally!), wouldn’t cooperate and eventually cried as she told me she can’t do it. The whole time she just wanted me to protect her and help her know everything would be okay. Of course, we’d been practicing for a couple weeks – little-by-little – so I knew it would be. [Read more...]

The past few years has seen my life take many unexpected twists and turns. All right, let’s not sugar coat it. There were times where events in my personal life seemed flat out impossible to deal with. I won’t get into the gory details here but it was horrific at times.

How to Create Offers Your Audience Needs, Wants and Will Buy.

buffetThere are three ways to create offers your audience wants:

  1. Create what you want, regardless of what people in your audience wants.
  2. Create what you think the people in your target audience wants.
  3. Create what the people in your target audience tells you they want.

Well, the first option doesn’t work?

That should be clear. If you just create the offers you want and don’t really think about your audience wants, it’s pretty likely they’re not going to buy what you offer.

The second option can work.

And that’s because guessing does work from time to time. Some times you’ll guess right and people will buy your offers. But maybe just as often, or more, you’ll guess wrong and be disappointed in the results.

The third option works every time.

This only makes sense. Just stop and think for a second. If someone tells you what they want and you create what they want doesn’t it only make sense that they’ll buy what you create?
