7-figure-coaching-urbanskiYou can still sign up now and receive instant access to a step-by-step business-building video training, by coaching and marketing legend, Adam Urbanski.

Adam’s “7 Figure Coaching Business Blueprint” and 17-minute training video was created just for this Megasummit. Learn how to grow a group-ready business and then skyrocket it! You won’t find this anywhere else, so SIGN UP NOW!

The Second Annual Group Coaching Megasummit is a unique virtual event — an information-packed opportunity to learn what you need to know to build your practice. As with last year’s Megasummit, top coaches will reveal their secrets for money-making coaching groups and teach YOU how to do the same. And don’t worry – even though the live event has ended, you can still get access to this wonderfully rich content!

  • Are you tired of working hour after hour with individual clients?
  • Would you like to increase your income without working more?
  • How about creating a community of like-minded clients who want to stay together?
  • Would you love to reach more people and help more people achieve the transformation they’ve been looking for?

Problem solved — run a group program!
You can do it; we’ll show you how

As a new coach, when you realize you are on your way to a full practice, you’re exhilarated.  Finally — success is on its way!

But eventually, you realize that if you have more and more one-on-one clients, you’ll burn out. You love serving people, but there is a limit as to how much you can do.

The more people you serve at once, the more you own your free time, and avoid driving yourself to exhaustion.  I know; I’ve been there.

That’s why I created my own group programs — because I was “lazy.”  I wanted to earn more, work less, but still help my clients get the transformation they wanted.

All of the experts that I’ve gathered for the Second Annual Group Coaching Megasummit have been there, also.  (All but two are different from last year’s Megasummit, and they ALL have new information to teach you!).  They’ve learned how to run powerful groups over many years, and can save you time and energy by sharing their secrets.

That’s why almost all coaches LOVE group coaching. Although the types of programs vary widely, the end result is the same:

  • Satisfied clients who reach their goals
  • More free time for you
  • Increased income
  • Increased reach and impact

“How do I get started running groups?”

First, you must start and grow your online service-based business

What do you need to know before running a coaching group?  The Second Annual Group Coaching Megasummit presents experts teaching you:

  • How to grow your list (ultra important for keeping your groups filled)
  • How to network so that it’s comfortable for you and also brings you more clients
  • Incredibly creative ideas for new types of groups to run
  • Tested, proven, simple yet powerful marketing strategies that bring in a flood of new clients, sales and profits in a way that’s completely congruent with your passion and mission
  • How to make use of social media to forge relationships that help you fill your groups
  • Leverage the material you’ve already created – a book, workshop, or signature system – by turning it into a group coaching program
  • How to write about your group program and let the world know what you have to offer
  • How to step into leadership in your group community

Group coaching create community

“But I don’t know anything about running groups.”

Learn how to Implement your Group Coaching Program

I’ve gathered a wide variety of experts who run all kinds of different groups, using different techniques, content and emphasis.  These groups vary in the kind of client they would attract, the unique transformation they offer, and the kinds of features that they contain.

Here is a taste of what you will learn from our experts:

  • The difference between a coaching group and a coaching class and how to enhance your teaching with coaching skills and activities

  • Exactly how to run a membership site that doesn’t depend on your providing content every week or month
  • How to run a group that “never ends”
  • How to upsell, side sell or even downsell your clients to other offerings so that they stay with you
  • How to run online coaching groups that are scaleable and provide predictable recurring income.

Love‐Based Copywriting: Writing Copy that Attracts, Inspires and Invites Your Ideal Prospects to Become Ideal Clients

You probably already know how important direct response copy is to your business. (Direct response copy are the words you find on long sales letters where you’re scrolling forever for the price, or those emails where you have to click a link — nothing to do with protecting your intellectual property.)

Not only can it help you fill your group coaching, mentoring and mastermind programs but you can also use it to upsell your current students to your other programs PLUS you can use it to keep your current students engaged in your current program.

Sounds fabulous, doesn’t it? So why does it make you feel so hype-y and sales-y and inauthentic?

That’s because traditional direct response copy typically taps into fear-based emotions, like fear, shame, guilt — which is why it feels so yucky. But you now have a choice. You can choose love instead of fear. And Michele PW, also known as Your $KaChing!$ Marketing Strategist and the author of the bestselling book “LoveBased Copywriting — How to Write Copy that Attracts, Inspires and Invites Your Ideal Prospects to Become Ideal Clients” is going to share how you can use love-based marketing and copy to both sell and manage your group program.

You’ll learn:

  • The difference between love-based and fear-based copy, so you can confidentially sell with love and never find yourself slipping into fear-based copy by mistake
  • The 3 key principles to crafting love-based copy
  • Ways you can use love-based copy to both sell your programs AND engage your current students so you keep them happy and coming back

How to Run Corporate Coaching Groups That Lead to More Lasting Change Than Corporate Training

Corporate training is dead. Well not so much dead as it is lifeless! And that is because the training doesn’t stick.

The Association for Talent Development reports that, in the US alone, over $60 BILLION is spent every year on corporate training using external service providers. What we also know, though, is that the ROI of corporate training is often reported at less than 30%. This means companies are essentially throwing away billions of dollars on training where inspiration leads to… no change at all.

That’s where corporate group coaching comes in. With its unique way of emphasizing accountability and self-responsibility, group coaching in business can leverage a company’s dollar in ways traditional training cannot – by not only helping participants to learn and develop skills but also with increased engagement and community.

In this expert interview Nancy Morris will show you how to:

  • Run international corporate coaching groups
  • Run a group that helps people reach their goals
  • Help the people that you are coaching map the information they’re getting into their own lives
  • Create a report with data that shows progress, so the company can’t wait to have you run more groups
  • Get a business coaching practice started in an amazingly innovative way (don’t miss this story!)

About Nancy Morris: Nancy is a Business Psychology Specialist who connects with her coaching clients and presentation audiences through her passion and knowledge. Having run a successful international coaching business for over 15 years with clients on 5 continents, she’s “been there done that” (lots of t‐shirts!) and knows how to share her wisdom with others. What makes Nancy successful is that she doesn’t do things the “traditional” way. Constantly thinking outside the box and challenging the status quo, her group work attracts energetic thought‐leaders who are going places. But be warned ‐ there are reasons Nancy is known as being “kickass”! She knows that the best way to help adults get to another level of thinking will probably make them a little uncomfortable for a while. Don’t be surprised if you want to hang up, but stick around and you won’t regret it!


The Safe Zone: How It Gets Coaching Clients To The Finish Line

Intimidation rears its head in many ways. It could be the teacher, the content being taught—even the software being used causes a factor of intense intimidation. Imagine going to a new country where you don’t know the language or the customs. They’re not going out of their way to intimidate you, yet you’re on guard. You’re unsure. And intimidation doesn’t let you have a great time. The opposite of intimidation is the safe zone. When you create a safe zone for your clients, you take not just the superstars, but everyone across to the finish line. Everyone gets the same—or better results.

So how do you create that safe zone?

About Sean D’Souza: When Sean started his first job as a copywriter, his boss called him an iconoclast. “A rebel conforms, eventually”, she said, “but an iconoclast forges his own path forever.” Sean is that kind of person: forging his own path. He’s not only been successful at work, but he also takes 3 months off and travels, every single year. You can find him at http://www.psychotactics.com.
