New Coach Training
“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” –Anais Nin
LESSON FOUR - INVITING FRIENDS AND FAMILY
To find people to include in your upcoming Challenge Group, start with the people closest to you! Initially, they are going to be the most willing to trust you and try what you have to offer, even if it's just because they love and want to support you. It is important to not prejudge anyone—meaning don't think you understand their circumstances so well that you decide for them if they'd be interested in being in your Group—give them the chance to make that decision for themselves.
You created your initial Contact List of friends and family before you started this training. Revisit it again and see if you can add any names to the list you may have prejudged (use the Memory Jogger).
With your list ready, now for the fun part—time to talk to people! You've shared your story on social media and connected with a few people by sharing your why with them, so your friends and family are aware that you are a new Team Beachbody Coach. Now, let's invite them to join you in your first Challenge Group! (If you are a coach in your first few months, you can talk to your sponsor about being an "apprentice" in their next challenge group. So you'll invite your challengers along beside you in your coach's group. That way you get used to the process and start earning commissions but you don't have all the pressure of leading a group solo!)
Don't overcomplicate this step, keep it simple and be yourself! Let your friends and family know that you are looking for some great Success Stories to help launch your coaching business and that you really want to help them. Share your story with them and then ASK THEM TO JOIN YOU in your Challenge Group
#1 - Sharing your own progress, then adding an invite to the end. Something like this...
"I can’t believe how much has changed since just 1 month ago when I made the decision to commit to a healthy change! Down ____lbs (or _____ pant sizes) in just a month! Feeling energized and amazing and so much better in my own skin. But I’m not done yet. I’m committing to another month long challenge this upcomign month and my coach is letting me bring 1-3 people along with me. If you wanna be my accountability partner for a month and get healthy along with me like, comment, or message me and I’ll send you the details! Let’s do this!!!
#2 - Inviting to JOIN YOU in the fitness journey. Something like this...
"AH! I’m soooo EXCITED! I get to be an apprentice coach in my coach, (insert coaches name next month long Challenge Group! The same challenge that has helped me (fill in the blank... )! I was also told that I can select up to 3 people to do the challenge along with me!!! If you think it might be something you are interested in... "LIKE" or comment below and I will shoot you over the deets! HURRY though, I only have a couple days to choose!
After they have liked/commented on your post... or contacted you for more information, this is personally the "MORE INFO" email/message I send them.
Feeling stuck? Beachbody put together a 5 Step Inviting Process you can use to help you find your own voice and style and get the ball rolling. Watch a video explaining the 5 Step Invitation Process here.
HOMEWORK: Your assignment today is to create your first post inviting your social network to your apprentice challenge group! I want you to set a goal of finding 1-3 challengers. (Remember, if you find 3 people to join you by purchasing Challenge Packs you'll hit Success Club for the month and you'll make more than enough in commissions to cover your own Shakeology order for the month!) You know how to make direct links now so many sure to send them the direct link so that YOU get credited with their challenge pack order. I know it can be scary at first, but remember… SHARE from your HEART. We aren’t salesmen peddling crap around. There’s a reason you are here and it is because you BELIEVE this can help other people and you are just giving them an opportunity to jump in with you! You’d be surprised how many people are just sitting around waiting for someone to guide them! Share from your heart about your own experience and extend a hand of invitation. Don’t get salesy in your post, keep it light and welcoming. And for the love of God share a photo of yourself! No one cares about hearing you TALK about your success, they want to SEE it!
Post your post and photo in your team Facebook group so that your sponsoring coach and the other coaches on our team can give you feedback before you make it public on your social networks! Be bold, be brave! I can't wait to see what you come up with!
