Growing Your Business Through Coaching

Every successful small business owner is continuously searching for ways to get more customers and expand their businesses. Business growth requires a structured system – otherwise, your business can become a rollercoaster of feast and famine…and growing your business through coaching is where Vector Business Coaching can help you succeed.

The Importance of a Steady Stream of Sales Leads

The most crucial element of growing a business is establishing a consistent stream of sales leads. These leads are the lifeblood of your business.

So, how do you create a system that ensures a steady flow of sales leads for your small business? More importantly, how do you convert these leads into loyal customers with the right focus and effort?

The answer lies in understanding the cornerstone of business growth using the triangle of Market-Message-Media. If any one of the sides is missing then the triangle, and your marketing will collapse.

The Triangle of Success: Markets, Message, Media

Let’s illustrate this concept with a simple example: wedding rings. With wedding rings you’ve got multiple Markets, because you can target both:

  1. Men who have just proposed.
  2. Women who have just been proposed to.

Crafting Persuasive Messages for Different Markets

Your Message is the persuasive narrative you craft to convince your market that your business offers the best wedding rings. When dealing with multiple markets, you’ll need different messages tailored to each area.

Selecting the Right Media Channels

Your Media refers to the channels and platforms you use to convey your message to your target audience.

For instance, you might advertise in bridal or wedding magazines read by 20 and 30-something women, in magazines catering to men in the 20 to 30 age bracket, or on Facebook, targeting women and men who’ve recently updated their relationship status to ‘engaged’. The key is to select the right Media to reach your specific audience effectively. You wouldn’t place an advert in an obscure trade magazine, would you?

The synergy between these three elements – Market, Message and Media is what drives success.

Get all three sides of the triangle right, and you’re well on your way to acquiring more customers and experiencing business growth.

Crafting Your Message in 3 Simple Steps

Now, let’s focus on creating a compelling Message that resonates with your target audience. Follow these three simple steps:

Let me use the wedding ring business as an example, selling to a couple who are getting married in August.

Step One – Identifying Your Market’s Specific Needs:

My prospective buyers need wedding rings, before August and they are worried about all sorts of things, will they still fit on the big day? What happens if they lose one? What if one of them calls the wedding off and they don’t need the rings at all?

Step Two – Presenting Your Solution and Benefits:

I can put at rest all of my prospects fears by assuring them that I can definitely deliver the ring before the big day, that if the rings don’t fit they can have the rings swapped or altered at no fee, and I can bundle in insurance with the rings in case one or both is lost or damaged. And if they don’t need the rings after all, they can bring them back for a full refund. All of the risk and worry is taken away.

Step Three – Offering Proof and Guarantees:

I could share a case study of someone who was in my prospect’s shoes this time last year, and tell the story of how they had the same fears, overcame them and bought the rings, they were a perfect fit they both loved them and are writing this message from their honeymoon in the Seychelles.

Then I’d get busy with a few short testimonials, with each one covering off a specific issue or concern, like “I couldn’t sleep I was so worried about whether the ring would still fit on our wedding day, but I shouldn’t have worried, my wife lost weight before the wedding and the ring was a size too big, so we had it altered to the right size, easy as pie, and with no cost, all in time for the wedding.”

Then I’d hit my couple with my Guarantees (plural!). In this instance I’d have three; each in response to a specific issue:

  1. “On Time Delivery Guaranteed, or Double Your Money Back”
  2. “Perfect Ring Guarantee: your rings will fit on the day, or we’ll swap or alter them, no questions asked”
  3. “She Said WHAT!? Don’t need the rings? have all your money back, but don’t spend it ALL at once.”

I could also bundle in 3 or 6 months worth of jewellery insurance into the sale, to cover off any future worries.

By following these steps, you build a compelling Message that resonates with your target audience and addresses their specific needs and concerns.
