“I have a message for all experience tennis coaches reading this, you should be starting your own private tennis coaching business, because there is so much money that you are leaving on the table right now”.
So, if you are working at a tennis club and have been thinking about starting your own tennis program, this article is just for you guys.
Here is a step by step plan that any tennis coach can start using today and start making 6 figures from doing it in less than a year.
Your first step is this,
Work Those Numbers.
I would start cold-calling companies and schools and create a good sale pitch for my calls and practice it daily, by contacting at least 200 prospects a day, yes 200 I said.
See, your objective here is to fill-up your sales pipeline with as many new prospects as you can at first.
Then your next objective is to follow up as much as you can with those same prospects.
It’s important to develop a great attitude too while you are doing your sales activities.
Because if you don’t have one, the next step will not matter at all.
Which is this.
After you fill-up your sales pipeline, make sure you get them to sign up for a free trial lesson with you.
This will give you a chance to wow them with your coaching style and connect with them on a more personal level.
Look at every tennis prospect that you get as a, Long Term Relationship.
That’s 5 years or more and that means you giving value to them for 5 years, and this goes way beyond the court.
Help your students out anyway you can, this could be helping them find good teachers, schools and places to shop.
Become a great resource for them and they will give you tons of free word of mouth marketing.
And the last tip here.
Leverage Those Relationships.
Look at your students as part of your growing and extended family.
Don’t look at them as just another student in your program, because if you do, you will be not be able to connect with them way, in a way that will encourage them to give you tons of referrals.
The fact is, referrals are earned through giving great service.
If you are not getting a lot of referrals, then you are giving average or below average service to your students.
Which will actually put you into the same rankings as 90% of the other sports clubs out there.
I was reading somewhere that 85% of the people working in these clubs don’t like their jobs and to that I say, “Great, then find out what you do like to do and go do it for the rest of your life”.
Coaching tennis should be your passion and if it is not, please sit down today and figure out what it is and find a way to get paid from it.
Sorry guys, that’s the end of my rant!!
Those are 3 tips that can help you start your own private tennis coaching business and then, have you making 6 figures in 6 months or less.
Hope that information helps!!
