IF YOU ARE A COACH OR CONSULTANT LOOKING TO GENERATE MORE INCOME AND BREAK 6 FIGURES, THEN YOU PROBABLY ALREADY KNOW THAT YOU NEED TO POSITION YOURSELF AS THE GO-TO EXPERT IN YOUR FIELD AND CONSISTENTLY GROW YOUR NETWORK. BUT WHO’S GOT TIME FOR THAT?
How many one-on-one coffee meetings with unqualified prospects have you wasted your time on? You need to generate consistent leads for your business and be able to turn strangers into loyal followers without the hefty investment of online ads.
I’ve discovered a great method for becoming a go-to expert in your industry and get consistent leads and referrals. Creating a tribe and becoming an authority at the front of the room. The live event industry is hot! Just look at Tony Robbins and Brendon Burchard – they have made millions by holding events.
I have spent the last several years creating and mastering Meetup Groups. I’ve successfully used them to build my own business, sell my products and services, become an international speaker, and even secured major sponsorships to fund my events.
If you haven’t heard of Meetup.com, it’s a website where you can easily set up events and build communities to attract your dream customers. Here are the 6 steps I used to build my business to over 6 figures in less than 6 months:
1. Find Your Ideal Clients
It’s vitally important to identify your dream client, otherwise, you’ll spin your wheels getting in front of the right people. It will be a challenge because of the time and effort and complicated technology that it takes to get out there through different channels, like social media and going to networking events, etc. By creating your own Meetup Group, you’ll be able to attract the type of clients and referrals that work best for your business.
2. Attract Your Ideal Clients
Stop chasing and start attracting. Having your own Meetup group will raise your profile and expert status. Your dream customers will come to you instead of you chasing them. You will get lots of leads in one hour instead of going to one networking event after another. There’s power in being in front of the room and everybody knowing who you are, instead of one of the attendees and meeting only a few people.
3. Getting Paid
There are many ways to monetize your Meetup Group. The first one is of course selling your own services and products. Your group is an asset in your business and can bring in its own income. On top of that, other companies would be interested in being in front of your dream customers, creating endless partnership and sponsorship opportunities.
4. Selling The Easy Way
When you have a proven sales system in place, selling becomes easy. If you’ve ever struggled with closing sales, you’ll know that having the proper tools available is important. Building a Meetup group is a way to plug yourself into a system that will allow you to get in front of more of your dream customers while building the trust you need to make a sale.
5. Tracking Your Success
In order to grow your business, you need to measure and track your progress. I developed productivity tools for my Meetup Group and was able to see that this was one of the best ways to grow my business. I quickly figured out that quantity is not always the best measurement. Just having a lot of people didn’t translate into sales – you have to have the right people in your group.
6. Grow Your Business To The Next Level
Grow your business without sacrificing all your time and energy. Meetup Groups are a great way to attract higher quality prospects so you can grow your business. Meetup Group owners are seen as leaders in the community. You can become well-known, get more clients, impact more lives, earn more income while enjoying more freedom in your life and business.
