My passion (and biz) is fuelled by a belief that anything is possible if you want it badly enough. Glass half fully is my permanent state of mind!
When you’re looking to attract new clients to your coaching business, it is so important to have a powerfully compelling offer for them. This is especially true when it comes to coaching services. The coaching market is so saturated and competitive that you need to make sure your offer stands out from the rest.
So what makes a coaching business offer truly compelling?
In my opinion, there are three key elements:
Let’s start with the copy. This is such an important part of your coaching offer because it will be the first (and sometimes only) thing that potential clients see.
Your copy needs to be clear, concise, and really highlight the benefits of working with you. It should be easy for a five year old to understand because “confused clients never buy”!
If your copy is weak or confusing, you will lose clients before they even get to the meat of your offer. So take the time to really craft strong, persuasive copy that will make them want to work with you.
Here are some examples of badly written copy along with an example of how the copy really needs to be written:
“Are you looking for a coach who can help you achieve your goals? I am a certified life coach and I would love to help you achieve success.”
“Do you feel like you’re stuck in a rut and don’t know how to get out? I am a certified life coach and I have helped countless people just like you achieve their goals and live a happier, more fulfilling life.”
“I am a certified career coach and I offer my services to those who are looking for a new job or wanting to make a career change.”
“Are you unhappy with your current job but don’t know what else you could do? I am a certified career coach and I have helped people just like you figure out what they’re truly passionate about and build careers they love.”
“Having trouble in your relationship? I am a certified relationship coach and I would love to help you work through your issues.”
“It hurts to be stuck in a unhappy, unhealthy relationship. I am a certified relationship coach and I have helped people just like you figure out what they want and need from a relationship and how to get it.”
See the difference?
The first examples are vague, unspecific, and don’t really speak to the clients needs. The second examples are much better because they are specific and address some of the main concerns that potential clients might have.

The second element is speaking to your clients deepest problems. This is what will make your offer truly compelling and differentiated from all the other coaching services out there.
Your clients need to know that you understand their pain points and that you can help them solve their problems. They need to feel like you are the only one who can help them achieve their goals.
To do this, your coaching offer must be laser-focused on solving a specific problem that your target client is facing. It should be clear from the outset what problem you are solving and how you are going to solve it.
To help illustrate this here are ten examples of extremely well crafted and specific problems that a client would immediately relate and respond to:
See how each of these speaks to a very specific problem that the customer is facing? This is the level of specificity you need to aim for in your offer.
Not sure where to start with identifying your customers problems? No problem! Go to Google and use this search string: “most common problems facing (your coaching niche)” or “top ten problems facing (your coaching niche)”.
The third and final element is offering some sort of guarantee. Offering a guarantee shows that you are confident in your ability to deliver results and that you are committed to your clients success. It takes the risk out of working with you and makes your offer that much more compelling.
It is definitely worth thinking about what kind of guarantee would most appeal to your potential clients (it isn’t always a money guarantee either). Here are some examples:
Choosing the right guarantee for your offer will depend on what you are selling and who your target market is. The important thing is that you offer some kind of assurance that working with you will be worth their time and money.
There you have it, the three elements of a compelling coaching services offer: clear copy, speaking to client problems, and offering a guarantee. Keep these in mind as you craft your offer and you’ll be well on your way to designing something that will appeal to your ideal clients.
