FAQ Coaches - V Coach Directory

How can we help?

 

The V Coach Directory is a free to use search platform, connecting you to a diverse network of independent coaches as well as their courses & events. Our coaches include business coaches, executive coaches, career coaches, life coaches, wellness coaches, spiritual coaches, health coaches, style coaches, relationship coaches, love coaches and more! We are essentially a one-stop-coach-shop! 
 
The V Coach Directory is also a marketing and support platform for coaches to help leverage their business and connect them to the right clientele!

 

 

 

Anyone looking to connect with the right coach, achieve a goal, receive personalised services, experience a transformation, live their dream life, and more! We work with both individuals and organisations to find aligned matches with the right specialists.
 
It’s our goal to help coaching businesses grow and to connect clients to the right coach. Our Directory is open to individual coaches, group organisations, coaching schools, master coaches, and new coaches growing their businesses.

The V Team are focused on modernising the way people locate the right coach. Our user-friendly interface and accessible search function promote people from all walks of life to explore the idea of working with and connecting to a coach. The V Team’s priority is to have motivated clients to connect with coaches through our value-driven marketing campaigns. We connect you to the right clientele through our personalised searches, including our core Coach Style filter and the FREE Coach Matcher services.

Simply put, having a directory profile is one of the most cost-effective ways to promote your coaching business and enhance your marketing mix. The V Coach Directory takes A LOT of the guesswork out for clients, simplifying the information in one curated space where they can itemise their specific needs and connect with the right coach. Furthermore, our integrated site and dedicated marketing strategies are designed to drive traffic back to your business profile(s) with each of your event listings, course listings, workshop listings, blog articles, newsletter posts, social support and select podcast interviews.

 

 

Our inclusive Directory covers several angles for clients to connect with you and your business.
 
1.     The first way is through our core search function. Clients can search by listing type (coach profiles, events, courses, and organisations), industry type, specialisation, location, and our personalised coach-style filter.
2.     The second way is through our Coach Matcher Service, where individuals and organisations can reach out directly to the V Team for a specific need or clients new to the coaching process. This program is free for both clients and coach members to apply; however, it is by application/approval for coaches.
3.     The third way is through our ongoing SEO, marketing, PR, and social efforts. The V Coach Directory is managed by expert marketing specialists who utilise all marketing streams to get more eyes on your profile.
4.     The final way is for you to set up an engaging business profile. People can authentically connect with you when you fill in all sections of your listings, have a professional photo of yourself, write monthly blogs, and upload a branded video of yourself.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Our goal is to direct people seeking coach support to the V Coach Directory so they can connect with coaches like you.  The V Teams marketing strategy ranges from dedicated promotional space on our owned media, engaging with the press, a roster of social media ads, and substantial SEO optimisation. We have it all covered to engage clients looking for a coach and potential clients who are not yet familiar with the process.

 
Essentially, more eyes on the V Coach Directory = more clients for coaches

Nope! All we charge is your monthly membership fee and the rest is in your pocket! 

 

To calculate your base level projected ROI from being on V Coach Directory, simply equate the income you would generate from booking a client through our Directory and compare that to the annual cost of your monthly subscription.
 
As a base example, for a FEATURED membership if you booked in just 4 clients for 3 sessions at $500 per person:
Membership Costs – $28 USD x 12 months = $336 USD
Client revenue – $500 USD x 4 = $2000
ROI: $1664
 
This is a base example, ultimately any other bookings or clients found through V Coach Directory will be more income for you and your business!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Not yet! However, if you would like to trial the V Coach Directory for a month, send our V Team an email, and we will set you up!
