A Business Lesson about Word of Mouth Marketing

Most coaching practices are working on a shoe-string in terms of having a marketing budget.

And the good news is this: The most effective means of marketing is FREE! Yes I’m talking WOM (word of mouth marketing). Generally speaking, utilizing WOM takes a tiny bit of effort to initially engage and even less effort to maintain.

Take a look at how much trust is accrued by the following types of advertising/promotion. Notice the WOM is at the top of the chart!


Now that you know this, what do you do about it? Great question and here are a few ideas:

1 – Get your business set up with Google Reviews. You can do YELP as well however, only experienced YELPERS will net your visible reviews.

3 – Sign up for the Church of the Customer Blog where this information came from and more like it will flow to you each month.

4 – Click here and download my interview with the authors of this Blog, Ben and Jackie as we outline the key three ways for you to engage Customer Evangelism into your marketing strategy.
