Decide to begin learning… Decide to be an expert…
Once you choose your niche, if you are not already an expert, you need to begin learning. And like I said earlier, you don’t need to be an expert to teach people who know less than you (except of course in niches where the law or common sense requires you have a requisite level of knowledge, education, or a license, such as doctoring, lawyering, etc.)
So what is the best way to begin learning?
Obviously, this may vary from niche to niche, but likely if you are going into an information niche, and you have used the techniques above to determine if there are buyers in that niche, there is information you can buy to learn (just like the other buyers).
I can’t tell you exactly what to buy in your niche to learn.
But let me ask you this, if you were to, for example, purchase the top 30 best selling books in your niche and read all of them, once reading them all, would you have a basic knowledge of the niche? (And of course, if your niche requires experience in addition to just know, then you would, of course, need to add an element of doing what you are learning).
Would you not likely have more information and knowledge of that topic than some percentage of the general population in your niche? Possibly more knowledge than half the people looking for instruction in your niche?
What if you were to go online and purchase every major course that is offered in your niche from all of your competitors and study each course through and through? Depending on the niche, you might have more knowledge at the end of your education than anyone expert you are learning from! And please understand, I am talking about buying their major course, not their introductory book or recorded program!
How else could you learn in your niche? Perhaps you could subscribe to all the magazines in your niche. Perhaps you could subscribe to every online subscription or membership you can find in your niche.
Of course, you might be thinking this is overkill. But you are wanting to position yourself as an expert as fast as possible, right? And it would be far better to learn too much than not enough, right?
Think about this…the average university student studies for at least 4 years, and at 4 years probably doesn’t have a working education, meaning they can get a job in their field without more training. In fact, many masters and doctorate students graduate still needing additional training in their field.
The bottom line is, if you want to coach, you need to become an expert if you aren’t one already, and it might be hard work and require diligent study at first. However, if you follow through and apply the information you learn, create a coaching program like I’m teaching you on this website, and become good at selling and delivering it, then it will be well worth it, right?
Once you have more knowledge than some pool of prospects in your niche, you can begin teaching those who don’t know as much as you
You should make every effort to become a bona fide expert in your niche as fast as possible, and to position yourself as an expert in your niche.
By the way, I have created a program that does just that – teaches you how to position yourself as an expert in your niche, check in out here: https://basekix.com/expert-in-30-days/
If you don’t have a niche, choosing one has likely held you back from beginning your coaching business or information business.
The information I have taught you in the short guide is the exact information I have used to teach my highest level clients how to choose a niche.
