What not to do on your website

Last week I talked about a serious mistake that coaches make when developing their websites...

Emulating someone else's website — either another coach or a "celebrity" site.

(check it out here if you missed it)

Today, I want to talk more about why it's a mistake.

See, in both cases, whether it's a coach or a celebrity, it's often all about them.

Big gigantic pictures of themselves.

THEIR story.

Why they're amazing — certifications, awards, where they've been featured, and so on.

The homepage is like a big billboard for that person.

Think about the last time you saw one of these websites.

Were you impressed?

Were you sucked in to continue exploring the site?

Did you think, "I'm convinced. I'm going to hire this person, buy their program, read their book."

My guess is probably not.

You probably did one of two things.

Left because there wasn't anything related to what you were looking for.

Or you skimmed and scanned trying to find something that did interest you.

If you didn't find it, then you left.

You don't want your homepage to be a big billboard for YOU.

Your potential clients don't care about you yet.

They care about themselves.

Their problems.

Their hopes and dreams.

They are there to see if you can help them.

So your #1 goal with your website is to convey HOW you can help them with the specific transformation you provide.

And, of course, using your unique genius to do so.

Let that percolate and we'll talk about it more next week.

With love & joy,

Sometimes when I talk to coaches, they tell me they’re trying to grow their coaching business.But then when we dig into what they’re doing on a weekly basis…It becomes clear that what they’re really doing is creating an expensive hobby for themselves.It usually looks something like this… (based on my first few years in “business”

Do you want a hobby or a business?

Several years ago, I signed up for a course on selling from a coach who promised we could increase our conversion rates by 50%. That would be amazing if it were true. But it wasn’t.At least for me. About every 10 minutes in the course, I thought, “There’s NO WAY I’m doing that.”Her approach was hard selling at

How do you want to sell?

Recently I set the record straight that growing a business can be simple, but not always easy. And like many things that are difficult, it’s worth it. Because on the other side of this challenge is a more confident and more capable you. And a life where you make good money doing meaningful work that you love. Now to get there,

Tired of selling yourself as a coach?

Yesterday a gal on Instagram sent me a DM after she’d read one of my posts… “What the heck is a coaching framework?” Great question! If you’ve been around for awhile, you’ve probably heard me mention how important it is to have your own proprietary, unique to you coaching framework. But… what exactly is it? Simply put, a Coaching Framework

What the heck is a coaching framework?

A few days ago, I was talking with a friend who’s been struggling to find new clients. She’s a very smart and accomplished woman.
