“I have a message for all experienced tennis coaches reading this, they should start their own private tennis coaching business, because there is a lot of money they 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.
Here’s a step-by-step plan that any tennis coach can start using today and start making 6 figures by doing it in less than a year.
Your first step is this
Work those numbers.
I would start cold calling businesses and schools and create a good sales pitch for my calls and practice it on a daily basis, contacting at least 200 prospects a day, yes 200 I said.
See, your goal here is to fill your sales channel with as many new prospects as you can in the beginning.
So your next goal is to follow up as much as possible with those same prospects.
It is also important to develop a great attitude while doing your sales activities.
Because if you don’t have one, the next step won’t matter at all.
Which one is this.
After completing their sales pipeline, make sure they sign up for a free trial lesson with you.
This will give you the opportunity to surprise them with your training style and connect with them on a more personal level.
Look at all the tennis prospects you get like, Long-term relationship.
That is 5 years or more and that means that you are giving them value for 5 years, and this goes way beyond the court.
Help your students in any way you can, this could help them find good teachers, schools, and places to shop.
Become a great resource for them and they’ll give you tons of word of mouth marketing for free.
And the last tip here.
Take advantage of those relationships.
See your students as part of your growing and extended family.
Don’t see them as just another student in your program, because if you do, you won’t be able to connect with them in a way that will encourage them to give you tons of referrals.
The fact is, referrals are obtained by giving great service.
If you don’t get many referrals, then you are providing average or below average service to your students.
Which will actually put you in the same ranking as 90% of the other sports clubs out there.
I was reading somewhere that 85% of the people who work in these clubs don’t like their job and that’s what I say, “Great, then find out what you like to do and do it for the rest of your life.”
Coaching tennis should be your passion and if it isn’t, sit down today and find out what it is and find a way to get paid for it.
Sorry guys, that’s the end of my spiel!
Those are 3 tips that can help you start your own private tennis coaching business and then make you 6 figures in 6 months or less.
Hope the information helps !!
