I recently presented “How To Use Online Technology To Boost Your Business” at the Triathlon America conference. Feel free to check out the slides – which will help you turn from online dinosaur to internet ninja!
Be sure to especially pay attention to last slide, where I give you the website URL for a brand new mentorship program which I’m starting for triathlon coaches: http://www.SuperhumanCoach.com
I’ve got 3 new ways I’m getting more done in a shorter period of time. Here is what they are:
1) Evernote – I use an Evernote “note” to keep track of my daily to-do list. Since it syncs to my Kindle and iPhone, I can access my to-do list from anywhere. I used to use a plain text document for my to-do list, but it was only accessible on my computer, so Evernote is better for this.
2) SendToReader on Kindle – Rather than reading an article on my computer, I am now more typically using the “SendToReader” function on my browser and reading that article on my Kindle when I am standing in line, sitting in an airplane, using the restroom, etc.
Over at PTOnTheNet, I just released December’s “Social Media Tips For Fitness Professionals”, where I talk about a new service called Quipol, how to design your YouTube channel, Slideshare developments and more! You can read it by clicking here!
Over at the Rock Star Triathlete Academy, we have a “Business of Triathlon Coaching” member upgrade – and we teach coaching strategies and business tips there. Currently, we’re turning all previous calls into audios and transcriptions for members to access in a convenient package.
I want to share one of the transcriptions with you.
In this “Business Of Triathlon Coaching” seminar you’re going to learn:
The most important trait of a triathlon coach when attempting to map out the pathway to achieving a client’s goals and the tools to be used….
How to make your resume pop…
The most common mistakes people make in their first year of coaching….
#1: Power Hour. Every morning, I do 1) devotions; 2) a morning stretch routine; 3) review my day on ImOnTime; 4) snuggle with the kids. This is far superior to leaping out of bed and making phone calls or checking e-mail.
Whether you’re selling your personal training services, a fitness or nutrition e-book or program, or a series of training plans, it is crucial that you be sure to take into account the tiny little details that will improve sales conversion.
While these 15 killer tips for improving conversion on your online sales page may seem small and irrelevant, they can in fact lead to enormous percentages in sales increase for your programs and services.
Please remember that these tips are for an online sales letter page…not necessarily something like a video sales page, which has it’s own set of important criteria I may blog about later if you like this article.
No matter how much you know about anatomy, physiology, swimming, cycling and running, you simply won’t succeed unless you structure your triathlon business properly and set yourself up to be able to get new clients and keep your current clients happy.
In a new USA Triathlon webinarthat I taught, you’ll learn how to structure your business, set-up pricing and fees, collect payment from clients, advertise, design your web presence, and much more!
Every month, I write an article over at PTOnTheNet.com about how fitness professionals can utilize the latest and greatest social media techniques to enhance business productivity, client interaction, and success.
In a recent article on PTOnTheNet, titled “How To Profit From A New Year’s Weight Loss Challenge”, I explained how to design, organize and manage a profitable New Year’s campaign. The article included a general overview, prize and discount suggestions, participant instruction details…
Avoid these 8 Mistakes to Ensure Satisfied Customers and Maximum Profits…
Everyone wants their fitness boot camp to be successful and profitable. But there are some mistakes frequently made by trainers that sap the life and profit from an otherwise excellent program. Avoid these eight mistakes to make the most out of your boot camp:
As busy fitness professionals, and fitness professionals who occasionally interact with our clients online, sometimes scheduling and engaging in a phone call with our personal training clients or coached athletes can be very difficult to do.
At the same time, we’ll occasionally receive e-mails and inquires from personal training clients or coached athletes that are just too involved and would take too much time for us to respond to in writing.
So as fitness professionals, or nutrition consultations, or coaches, etc., we are faced with a paradox…do you spend a ton of time scheduling a call with your client, calling your client, getting the introductions and niceties out of the way, and then attempting to close the call and say good-bye…all of which can be incredibly time-consuming.
In this post and video, I’m going to teach you how to record calls with iPhone. If you search around the internet, it is very difficult to find an actual app that can record iPhone calls, so this is a very good alternative. I completely understand that it requires one external piece of equipment, but it’s well worth the convenience.
So for those of you who aren’t familiar with affiliate programs, they’re basically a mechanism via which you can make recommendations to your clients and receive a profit when your clients actually find enough value in your recomendation to make a purchase.
While fitness professionals can make fantastic added income by offering their clients, customers and lists recommendations on everything from gear and equipment to tanning salons and energy bars, there’s never really been a good nutrition affiliate program for fitness professionals (password is “wccgp” to actually see the protected post on that page).
