The Profitable Associate
What are your strategies for building coaching businesses? What if you don’t like ‘traditional’ marketing? What if you just want to coach and not ‘sell’? Who does the £1.8bn corporate coaching revenue per annum go to?
If you’ve ever wondered about those questions for yourself, welcome to The Profitable Associate, a place to find the answers for yourself.
It’s the first programme and membership community to address this profitable and rewarding business model in the coaching industry.
Every year coaching businesses are being contracted to deliver coaching. They need coaches to be able to fulfill on the promises they make. This means using you, in the capacity as a coaching associate.
If you build an associate relationship that works for you and them, it’s can be the gift that keeps on giving for many years to come. And your marketing is about looking after these relationships, not spreading yourself thin out there in the general business world.
But how do you get started, what do you need to think about, how much money can you make and how do you find the people to work with?
My name is Ginny Baillie and I created The Profitable Associate to help you answer just these questions. The programme is to share ideas, experience, tools and resources so you can build your associate plan and the community is a place to test ideas, get reliable feedback from peers (possibly have a rant about your business!), buddy up, discussion threads, events you might want to attend and work through the programme modules – you need both.
