How to Segment Your List and Reduce Friction in Your Buyer's Journey

Your list and, more specifically, the relationship you have with the people on your list, is one of your most valuable business assets.

The only things more valuable are your health and your skills.

To build a successful coaching and consulting business as fast as possible, start building your list of potential clients immediately.

As you build your list, begin to segment your prospects by using a CRM system with a tagging feature (if yours doesn't have one, switch asap) and set up these tags: 

Timing tags:

These are tags that segment your list by their level of urgency and readiness to solve their problem. I use and recommend three tags for this:

Now buyers: These are folks with a known problem, and the pain is high, and they're seeking a solution immediately. They'll be purchasing within seven days.

How To Book Appointments With CEO's of 8-Figure Companies

If you're ideal client is the CEO or any member of the C-Suite of a company doing between $10 million and $100 million in revenue and you want them to cheerfully book an appointment with you, read on.

First, remember these things:

1. They're humans like you and me. They live in an emotional whirlwind, and they're constantly looking for someone or something that can help them solve their problems and elevate their emotional state.

2. They are very, very busy. There's little time for chit-chat. Although this is very personality dependent, even the most gracious and extroverted CEOs have serious time constraints and need you to get to the point.

Get More Networking Leads by Using The MOCAA Method™

The Method

"So, what do you do?"

When someone asks you this in a networking meeting, please remember...

They don't care.

They care about themselves and their problems.

As famous marketing copywriter Robert Collier once said, the key to influence is to "enter the conversation already going on in your prospect's mind."

That means we have to get out of our own head and our own problems and focus on theirs.

And since the subconscious mind is always in control, their subconscious is asking:

1. How can you help me?

2. How long will it take me to experience the result/relief/transformation?

3. What will I have to sacrifice (of my time and money)?

4. What do you want me to do right now to take the next step toward relief?

If you answer these four questions for them, they'll want to give you more time, and perhaps in your next meeting, even gladly give you some of their money.

Here's my talk track to make this happen for you.

I call it the The MOCAA Method™, which stands for:...
