Topic: The True Purpose of Marketing (and it’s not attraction)
After working with hundreds, thousands of coaches, we see some patterns where coaches fall prey to the same misconceptions everyone does: that marketing is somehow supposed to attract, to pull people in.
This misconception leads to people feeling miserable about marketing if they do it, and for many people of heart, they just won’t follow through with marketing because of it. This means few or no clients, a struggling business, and many people who don’t get the help they need from you.
Mark invites you to take his free Readiness Assessment, which is a video training and assessment. It will help you learn what stage of business development you are in, which has nothing to do with how long you’ve been in business, and will help you know what to focus on, and, even better, what you can safely ignore until later. You also get a personal response.
