1. Why would I need a Business Coach?
Every great performer, whether an elite athlete, entrepreneur or performing superstar, is surrounded by coaches and advisors.
As the pace in the world of business increases and becomes more and more competitive, it is becoming increasingly difficult to keep up with changes in your industry, let alone the latest innovations in sales, marketing, and management strategies. Having a Business Coach is no longer a luxury …it has become a necessity. On top of all this, it´s difficult to get a truly objective answer from yourself. Clearly you can survive in business without the help of a coach, but it´s almost impossible to reach your maximum potential!
2. How can I be sure this will work for my business and in my industry?
Marti has extensive experience in the areas of sales, marketing, business development, business management, and team building … and, with literally hundreds of different profit-building strategies, you´ll soon see how powerful his systematized approaches are. On the other hand, you are the expert in your business. Together you can apply the strategies together to make your business more effective.
Add to this the fact that Marti has coached over 227 businesses across 34 different industries in the last 5 years, and you'll find that Marti has encountered businesses in all different situations.

Not only will you begin to create great results in your business, but you´ll end up with both-an entrepreneurial education second to none, and the knowledge that you can repeat your business success over and over again in other ventures.
3. Will this mean more work for me?
Clearly, when your initial plan is set up, it might seem like a great deal of work … but then again, no truly successful business owner or entrepreneur ever achieved their success without hard work. In the first few months, it´ll take some work to adjust, some effort to get over the ´hump,´ so to speak … but the further you get into the program, the less effort you´ll have to make.
You will, however, be literally amazed at how focused you´ll become and how much you´ll accomplish. With your focus, Marti's coaching, you´ll be achieving a great deal more with the same, or even less work than before.
4. How much will coaching cost?
Your investment will depend on the size of your business and how quickly you want to grow it. Marti will work this out with you so it´s appropriate for your business and the goals and challenges you are committed to. You´ll find it´s just like having a marketing manager, sales team leader, trainer, recruitment specialist, and a corporate consultant, all for one nominal investment.
Everything you do with Marti, is a true investment in your future. Not only will you begin to create great results in your business, but you´ll end up with both-an entrepreneurial education second to none, and the knowledge that you can repeat your business success over and over again on other ventures.
5. Are there any guarantees?
In business, nothing can ever be guaranteed. Ultimately, only YOU can ever be truly accountable and responsible for your own success. However, we realise that there are a lot of cowboys out there in the business coaching and consulting world.
That's why we are prepared to take all the risk with our "Better Than 100% Money Back Guarantee". If you don't increase your profit by at least twice your investment with us within 12 months then we will refund your money in full.
There are two caveats to this guarantee and these help to make sure both parties are committed to making the relationship a success.
1. You must stay on the coaching program for at least 12 months. The reason for this is because building a business does take time. We've found from working with over 227 business owners over the last 5 years, that you'll be able to see significant measurable results after 12 months.
2. You must attend all the coaching sessions and complete all of the agreed upon strategies. The reason for this is because to get results from your business and the coaching process, you'll need to take significant action and start implementing multiple strategies on the go. If you don't work hard and aren't willing to implement the strategies, then obviously we can't guarantee the results in your business.
Our "Better Than 100% Money Back Guarantee" has been used over the last 5 years with over 227 business owners and we've never had the guarantee called upon. This is simply because we use proven, predictable and profitable strategies with our clients, and if they're willing to work hard enough and become massively Action-oriented then they'll see results.
6. Will it cost me more to implement the strategies?
Sit down with Marti for just and hour and you´ll see how to turn your marketing efforts into an investment that will yield sales and profits rather than just running up your expenses.
In most cases you'll actually save you money by exposing approaches that aren´t working for you. And yes, you´ll likely have to spend some money to make some. When you follow simple testing and measuring systems you´ll never again risk more than a relatively few dollars on any one campaign. When we establish ideas that work, we make sure you keep profiting from them, time and time again.
Remember, if you use the traditional ´accounting´ way of reducing costs, you´ll add just a few percentage points to your bottom line. Following Marti's formula, you´ll soon appreciate that by driving sales, marketing, and income growth, your possible returns become exponential … the sky´s the limit, as they say.
7. Why would you also recommend books, audio CDs etc?
When you work with Marti, you'll go through his 'guerilla training course' to save you both time and money. This means you'll be listening to audio CDs and reading books from the world's leading business minds each week, to develop your own personal skills. Because each business is a reflection of its owner. If Richard Branson was running your business, he'd do things differently to you, just like you would if you were running one of his hundred odd buisnesses. That's why we need to work on developing your own skill set, so you can transfer your skills to anything you do in life.
8. Can you write ads, letters, and other marketing pieces for me?
Yes and No. Marti will train you to do it for yourself. Learning the master skill of 'writing ads that sell' is one of the most powerful things you can learn as a business owner. Having the ability to put words on paper and get people to pay you for them is massive. Once you've learnt the skills of 'writing ads that sell' you never have to rely on anyone else to find you customers . Also, the marketing of any business should never be outsourced. That's because nobody know's a businesses customers better than the owner. That's why it's imperative to keep the marekting in-house.
Marti and his team will also help critique the marketing pieces you´re using right now, and plan to use in the future.. And you'll never have to create any ad from scratch. Marti has a swipeful with hundreds of successful ads his clients have been using over the past 5 years, in mediums like direct mail, newspaper, radio, editorials, flyers and many more. These examples will help shortcut the process of writing successful ads.
