Frequently Asked Questions ...
What areas will you coach me in?
Our “5 Ways” and “6 Steps” programs are two of the most powerful formulas in the world of business. We will put them to work with you in all areas of your business to help you multiply your revenues and profit. However, that is just one area of our focus. When you work with an ActionCOACH, the emphasis taken will depend on you, your business, and of course, your goals. These key areas are:
- Sales and Finance – You won’t know if you’re winning if you don’t have a full understanding of the scoreboard. This is the backbone for creating a profitable business, and one of the areas we’ll help you achieve spectacular results in.
- Marketing & Advertising – If you want to make a sale, you’ve got to find a prospect first. Over the next twelve months, Nick will teach you amazingly simple and powerful marketing techniques that will drive profits.
- Team Building & Recruitment – You’ll never struggle to find the right people again. You’ll have only the motivated, passionate, enthusiastic, and loyal team members in your business when Nick shows you how to put our de-selection process to use.
- Systems & Business Development – Learn how to structure your business so that you can work on it and not in it. We will show you the secrets of having your business work, even when you’re not there.
- Mastery and Customer Service – Discover how to deliver your products and services consistently, making it easy for your customers to purchase them and leaving them feeling delighted with their experience. Learn new ways to motivate your current customers to give you referrals and to ensure their continued business.
What is the ActionCOACH Program?
In all of our proven business coaching programs, we are focused on teaching you our exclusive business-building strategies that will help you achieve the ActionCOACH definition of a successful business: a commercial, profitable enterprise that works without you. ActionCOACH works with more than 18,000 clients every week in dozens of different industries. Utilising sales, marketing, and financial management systems, ActionCOACH not only shows you how to dramatically increase your business revenues and profits but also how to develop your business so that you, the owner, can work less and relax more.
Why would I need a Business Coach?
Every great entrepreneur is surrounded by coaches and advisors. As the world of business continuously changes and evolves, it can be difficult to keep up with all the changes in your industry while running your business every day. Just like great athletes who find success by following the lead of a coach with a winning game plan, more business owners than ever before are turning to business coaches to help develop a winning game plan for their businesses.
What is one-on-one coaching?
It is the only program in which Nick will work with you directly for at least twelve months to make all of your goals a reality. There isn’t a single area of your business that one-on-one coaching doesn’t touch. From weekly coaching calls and goal setting sessions to working with you on your new marketing pieces, you will develop new sales strategies and business systems that will enable you to work less make your dreams come true.
What’s an Alignment Consultation?
The Alignment Consultation is where an Nick starts with every business owner. Your initial investment includes a meeting with him; during this meeting, they will learn as much as possible about your business, your goals, your challenges, your sales, your marketing, your finances and so much more. An Alignment Consultation is performed with three goals in mind: first, to learn exactly where your business presently stands. Second, to clarify both your business goals and your personal goals. Third, to get the crucial pieces of information needed to create an ActionPLAN for your business that will guide you over the next twelve months.
How can I be sure that this will work in my industry and in my business?
Nick is an expert in nearly every aspect of building and developing a successful business. Sales, marketing, business development, business management, team building - we have literally hundreds of different strategies and systems at your disposal to tackle each one of these sectors. You’ll quickly understand just how powerful our systemised approaches are.
Why at least twelve months?
At ActionCOACH, we believe that long-term success means that we aren’t just offering suggestions or doing the work for you; it means doing the work alongside you, showing you how to do it, working alongside you, and creating success together. Over the course of twelve months, you’ll work on every single part of your business. Over the duration of the program, you’ll see your goals gradually become reality, and you’ll gain both the confidence and the knowledge to make it happen again and again.
Won’t this mean "more work"?
Our goal is to help you build a profitable, commercial enterprise that works without you. The last two words of that sentence are extremely important - our goal is to have you no longer working IN the business, but, instead, working ON it. That means that you’ll more time to spend doing what you want to do while the business serves you, instead of the other way around.
How will I find the time?
Remember - the first few months will be the hardest on you. Not because of an increased amount of work, but because of how differently you’ll work. During your time with him, Nick will show you how to get more work done with much less effort. After the first few months, you’ll find that you’re not actually working more, just working differently.
How much will this cost?
Your investment will depend on both the size of your business and the scope of your goals. Nick will work this out with you so that your expenses will be appropriate for the current state of your business and the goals you want to achieve. But no matter what the size of your investment is, rest assured that it is guaranteed to produce results. Our programmes start from £500 to £3,000 a month.
Will it cost me extra to implement the strategies?
No - implementation is part of the ActionCOACH experience. Give Nick just half an hour of your time, and you’ll be shown how to turn your marketing strategy into an investment that yields sales and profits rather than just running up your expenses. In most cases, Nick will actually save you money when he discovers areas that aren’t working for you or your business.
