Are you considering hosting a 5-day challenge for your coaching business but don’t know where to start? Begin with the end in mind. What are your business goals? What do you hope to gain by hosting a challenge? That’s always the best way to start. Once you’re clear on your goals, you can figure out the best strategy to deliver a challenge that will be a win for your participants and a win for your business.
Here are five goals your 5-day challenge can help you achieve:
1. Grow Your Email List
Challenges can act as powerful lead magnets, helping you grow your email list. Participants need to opt-in to participate (in other words, they need to give you their name and email address). As they complete your challenge and see the immense value you offer, it's only logical for them to want to stay on your list and continue to get your great insights. Once you have them in your list, you can share product promotions, offer valuable content, and continue nurturing your relationship, far beyond a single product or service.
2. Boost Sales of Your Coaching Services
Design your challenge to smoothly navigate participants towards the coaching services, online course, or other product or service that you wish to promote. To accomplish this effectively, ensure the challenge's theme aligns with your offering. For example, you might want to create a 'productivity challenge' that empowers participants to carve out extra hours in their work week. Upon the challenge's completion, guide participants towards your personal or group coaching services that provide comprehensive strategies for enhanced time management.
3. Win New Coaching Clients
Leverage your challenge to attract new coaching clients. In an online challenge, participants work actively, fortified by your guidance and expertise - a process that mirrors coaching sessions. This experience showcases a taste of the invaluable support you provide, enticing people to seek further coaching with you.
4. Enhance Your Social Media Presence
Leverage your challenge to bolster your social media presence and spread the word about your coaching expertise. Guide your challenge participants to your social media profiles, where they can explore more valuable content, challenges, and offers.
5. Cultivate a Vibrant Community
Online challenges foster a sense of community as participants interact with one another, exchange ideas, and provide mutual support. Utilize the community you've nurtured through your challenge, by inviting them to join an exclusive group on platforms such as Facebook. Here, you can continue to act as a mentor and motivator, strengthening their connection with you and ultimately, increasing the likelihood of them enrolling in your coaching services.
Charting Your Course with a 5-Day Challenge
You could either choose one business goal from this list or combine two or three. Perhaps, you aim to cultivate a social media community while nurturing leads for future coaching clients. The key is to be specific. The first step in planning a successful challenge is crystal clear goal setting. Are you ready to take the plunge?
