Inviting is a VITAL behavior in your success as a Beachbody coach. I’ve seen many coaches do everything right EXCEPT INVITING. They will inevitably fail. I can’t stress how important this is. I hope you all had a chance to look at yesterday’s tips on how to invite. If you have trouble with the word “INVITING” I suggest replace it with “SHARING”. You already know how helpful our challenge groups are, why WOULDN’T you want to share them with others?
- Post in our team FB training group the invite you are sharing. I’ll give you feedback on what’s good about it and what you can improve.
- Next, post your invite publicly on your page, group, or social channels (I find that between 7-9 pm is the best).
When you share, keep all group requirements in mind. All my challengers MUST have three things to join a Beachbody program challenge group with me: (1) A Beachbody workout program such as 21 Day Fix, PiYo, T25, etc. (2) Shakeology (3) Me as their coach. You will need to require the same of any challengers you add to our team’s groups. Group requirements are always listed in the DOC section of our Team’s Facebook Group.
Here is one that I recently used in my Facebook Group (pictured right). A few tips when posting in your groups:
-> Don’t mention Beachbody (too salesy!)
–> Make it personal, either with your own stories or pictures (or both!)
–> Gives the how, when, why of the group
–> This time, I called it an accountability group, not a challenge group to give people a better sense of what it was really about
Personal FB wall idea
“One of the things I have found is that checking in with an online support group helps keep me on track with my running and workout goals. In my next accountability group, we will be talking about ways to increase our “happiness quotient” in our everyday lives. I’d love to have you join us! We start Monday. Message me if you’re interested.”
Also, sometimes people want to see someone they KNOW have success before they are ready to jump on board. You don’t have to have a huge weight loss success story (I didn’t). Just tell it like it is, be yourself. For me, NSVs have been my own success story. I feel more confident in my own skin and proved to myself that being 40+ years old doesn’t mean you can’t look great. Share your story with passion and integrity. People will respond to that.
If you can think of friends that would love our groups, send a personal invitations. Words of wisdom…NEVER MASS MESSAGE! It’s impersonal and annoying. To be a truly successful coach, you will put other people first and not sales. You want to get to know your customers.
