Here Is What Your Coach Does For You — And Why It’s Completely Different Than Typical Coaching

what-you-get icon

A typical marketing coach simply gets on the phone with you maybe once a month, answers questions, and offers thoughts on what you could do better. You then take that conversation and show up a month later, hat in hand, dejected that you didn’t get everything done.

And that is the problem with traditional coaching. After you’ve talked with your coach, you’re on your own (save for the occasional question via email). It’s 100% on you to do all the work, keep yourself accountable, and make adjustments on the fly.

That’s why we’ve completely reinvented our approach to coaching. Instead of jumping on random calls, cobbling together a plan for your next month, and then crossing our fingers that you won’t get distracted or overwhelmed, we take the opposite approach. Your coach walks alongside you every step of the way. In fact, you have access to your coach on-demand at any time!

Here are the 3 main roles your coach fulfills for you:

Role #1: Creating Your Marketing Plan

Right after you become a client, your coach will work in conjunction with the Growth Tools marketing team to look under the hood of your business, learn what makes it tick, and identify the highest impact projects, campaigns and optimizations that will make your business grow.

Your coach will then use those to create a custom marketing plan you’ll follow to double your monthly revenue in 12 months or less. The we check-in 1:1 every 90 days to review the plan so we can tweak and make adjustments based on the results you're getting and progress you’re making.

Forget about wading through the endless sea of blog posts, online courses, and swirl of digital marketing info-tainment so you can cobble together a strategy made of best guesses. You’ll have a plan that’s grounded in the process that’s been tested and proven by over 100 coaching clients for the past 6 years.

Role #2: Managing Your Progress & Holding You Accountable

Once you have your marketing plan, the last thing you need to do is spend valuable time drowning in the details of every task you need to complete over the next 12 months.

That’s why your coach is there take all of that tedious—but incredibly important—project management work off your plate. Everything you need to do gets broken down into bite-sized, manageable action items that fit your schedule. You can focus on executing instead of constantly stopping to think about what to do next.

Your coach also holds you accountable to hit your goals and complete action items on time. We’ve built a custom coaching tool that allows us to track your progress and keep your goals at the forefront, so your coach can keep everything on schedule no matter how crazy life and business might get for you.

The second it looks like you’re falling behind, your coach will reach out proactively and give you the gentle nudge (or swift kick) you need to stay focused and keep your momentum going.

No more missed deadlines. No more delayed launches. No more spinning your wheels. You will finally just get things done.

Role #3: Coaching You 1:1 Anytime You Need It

As you implement your marketing plan, your coach will be there every step of the way to help. If you have a question, need feedback or a second set of eyes, just let them know and they’ll respond usually within a few hours, but certainly within one day.

If it’s a simple question, you will get a written response. But often, you’ll get a video response with detailed advice and guidance. Your coach may even pull in other members of our coaching team with deeper knowledge of specific areas if needed.

For example, if you were to ask a detailed question about hiring or Facebook ads, your coach might put you in touch with our experts in those fields. A huge benefit of being a coaching client is that you have access to the expertise of our whole team, not just one coach.

In addition to all that, if your current issue needs to be workshopped together on a live call, your coach may suggest you schedule time during one of our twice-per-week office hour sessions where they can workshop the problem with you. Other clients are often present during these calls to offer advice and expertise as well.

Our goal isn’t to give you more work to do — it’s to put a system and structure in place that makes your revenue growth inevitable.

Here’s What Your 12 Months of Coaching Will Look Like

Step 1: We Match You With Your Coach

When you become a client, our first step is to match you with your coach. Depending on the unique needs of your business, we’ll match you with one of the following coaches:

Matt Zavadil

Matt brings 15 years of online marketing experience in numerous verticals to the table, with a focus on content marketing, SEO, lead generation, and sales conversion. If you run into any of the hundreds of entrepreneurs he’s coached over the last eight years, they’re likely to tell you about his unique ability to break down complex strategies and know-how into actionable info that’s easy to implement.

Bryan Harris

Bryan is the founder of Growth Tools (formerly known as Videofruit), which has helped thousands of entrepreneurs build thriving businesses through its unique combination of software tools, training, and coaching programs. Along the way, he’s advised industry leaders like Michael Hyatt, Infusionsoft, and Dr. Axe, while becoming a go-to expert in growth marketing.

Jeff Perlot

Jeff is a serial entrepreneur who has focused on building businesses and helping others do the same his entire career. From selling a dietary supplement company he built from scratch to co-creating an entrepreneurship bachelor’s degree program, Jeff has the combination of real-world experience and teaching chops that’s rare to find in a coach.

Your coach won’t be the only person putting in work behind the scenes on your business. They’ll also function as your go-between to the team of specialists who can lend expertise when you need it.

Chris Marshall

Specialty: Software and Product Development

Bethany Loginow

After we introduce you to your coach, the real work on your business begins:

Step 2: We Build the Custom Marketing Plan to 2x Your Monthly Revenue

Again and again, we see the biggest obstacle preventing most business owners from growing is simply being so close to their business that it’s hard to look at things objectively and notice the most obvious and biggest areas of opportunity.

That’s why our first order of business is creating a marketing plan that gives you 100% certainty your time will be focused on the strategies and optimizations most critical to growing your business.

And that starts with us deeply understanding you and your business.

When you become a coaching client, we’ll conduct an in-depth interview, which brings us up to speed on everything—from metrics, to products/services you offer, to your market, and more.

By the end, we’ll know exactly what makes your business tick. With all that information in mind, we’ll put on our “Director of Marketing” hat and create the marketing plan that we would implement if we were in charge of your business and our sole responsibility was to double revenue in 12 months or less.

roadmap screenshot
Your marketing plan is created to match YOUR skill set, resources, and available time.

It’s designed to get you both short- and long-term wins while also leaving room for us to make adjustments to your strategy along the way. It covers 3 things:

  1. 1. Your Monthly Revenue Goal:

    We start by pinpointing where you want your monthly revenue to be 12 months from now and we what we think is possible given your unique situation.

    Typically our initial goal is to double last year’s revenue. Based on our experience, we’ll identify what we think is a reasonable yet aggressive goal and present it to you to approve. Then we’ll work backwards from that goal to create your marketing plan.

  2. 2. The Marketing Campaigns You’ll Implement to Hit Your Goal:

    This is your custom marketing strategy for hitting your revenue goal. If we were running your marketing team, it is exactly what we would do. It includes key projects, campaigns, and optimizations that give you the best chance of reaching your revenue goal. It’s not a one size fits all plan, it’s custom tailored to your unique situation. It will give you a clear picture of what the next 12 months look like for your business.

  3. 3. Detailed Explanation Of Your Marketing Plan

    Once we’ve completed your marketing plan, you’ll receive a detailed video breakdown from your coach that talks you through every goal, step, and strategy, and the reasons why we think it’s the ideal path for your business.

    You’ll then review the plan and approve it.

    If you have questions or concerns about the plan, all you have to do is let your coach know and we’ll be there to make any necessary adjustments.

    Also, every 90-days, we’ll review this plan together and tweak it base on the results your getting and progress your making.

Step 3: We Give You the Playbooks to Execute Your Marketing Plan

As your coach, we give you our internal playbooks to run your marketing plan. No trial and error needed. Just run the exact systems that we’ve tested and continue to perfect.

Our playbooks are the exact same step-by-step manuals we use in our business to do everything from running Facebook ads, land new marketing partners, hire our next employee and run this coaching program.

Inside each playbook is everything you need to implement that strategy. From high-level training, documentation, video overviews, over the shoulder tutorials and every resources and template you can imagine.

For example, if one of the items on your marketing plan is to validate and pre-sell your product idea, you will get our Validation Playbook. If one of your items is to optimize your website, you’ll get our Optimization Playbook.

Playbook

And best of all, your coach will be standing by to answer any questions you have. They’ll also monitor your progress daily and proactively check-in with you if they notice you get stuck.

Step 4: We coach you through everything so you never get stuck

When you become a coaching client, you never have to guess about your marketing or go through business alone again.

If you’re struggling to get through a task, run into a roadblock, or just need a second set of eyes on an email before you hit “send,” just tell your coach and you’ll get a fast response in 1 of 3 ways:

  1. gauge meter

    1. If you have a simple problem that has a straightforward solution, your coach will send you a simple email response within a few hours.

    • Question: “Which email service provider should I use if I want lots of flexibility and automation?”

    • Response: “Based on your needs, I definitely recommend ConvertKit. You’ll love it and you won’t have to worry about switching to something else as your list grows.”

  2. gauge meter

    2. If your problem requires specific expertise, your coach will pull in one of our domain experts who has that expertise. That coach will send you a detailed email response within a day.

    • Question: “Struggling to write a good response to this email I just got from a super promising potential webinar partner. Can you take a look at the draft?”

    • Response: “Solid start! There are a couple of tweaks that would make it seem like even more of a no-brainer for the partner though—I recorded a quick video to talk you through the specifics: [LINK TO VIDEO]”

  3. gauge meter

    3. If your problem is complicated AND time-sensitive, your coach will schedule a time in our next live office hours call so we can workshop it together.

    • Question: “Our course launch is a week away and I still have no idea how to price the different tiers we’re offering. Help?”

    • Response: “We’re all over this! Recorded a video for you with a few quick thoughts, but I’m also going to schedule you for 10:30am on tomorrow’s office hours call so we can talk through everything together and go through all your questions. Sound good?”

dot separator

Again, your coach is there to help you through any challenge you encounter, whether you need to…

  • Get feedback on a webinar script, outreach email, product description, or any other key asset

  • Need help untangling a thorny tech issue (like setting up tracking parameters in Google Analytics, launching a landing page, or setting up an email sequence in your email service provider)

  • Write the perfect response to an email you just received from a huge potential partner

  • Make a key hire to expand your team but aren’t sure where to start

  • Figure out how to close more leads over the phone

  • Settle on the right pricing for your big upcoming product launch

  • Make sure you’ve landed on the perfect content plan to keep your email list warm and engaged

  • Feel stuck and just need to vent and get some encouragement

  • Determine if a potential partnership is worth your time or not

  • Tackle ANY other issue, question, or roadblock that’s standing in your way

Whatever your challenge, you’ll have the expertise of the entire Growth Tools team at your disposal.

Step 5: We Hold You Accountable and Keep You on Track

We’ve spent over $50,000 and 500 hours building a custom coaching tool that allows your coach to know what you should be doing, what you are actually doing, and if you are getting the results you should be or not.

Your marketing plan and all of your playbooks are delivered through this coaching tool.

It is custom built to help you stay on track in 3 ways...

  • If you’re falling behind on a key task or project, we’ll see it coming in advance and check in with you to make adjustments.

  • If we don't hear back from you, your coach will reach out via other channels until you respond.

  • If your revenue growth isn’t on pace to hit your goal, we’ll realize it while there’s still plenty of time to adjust and get you back on track.

And when something really needs to get done but your struggling with procrastination or distraction, we will issue you a challenge to complete it within a specific timeframe or pay an agreed-upon penalty. (These challenges are optional, but extremely effective.)

challenge screenshot

Accountability isn’t something that can be bolted on with an “online community” or a Facebook Group. Accountability has to be maintained and managed with consistent monitoring and accurate reporting.

That’s why, as your coach, we’re not just making sure you’re checking off boxes and telling us you finished a task.

We’re working closely with you to keep your KPIs up-to-date so we can be sure you’re on track to double your revenue in 12-months or less.

What kind of results can you expect? 3 case studies.

how-it-works icon

There’s a reason we stopped selling online courses and have moved all of our focus to this 1:1 coaching model.

Quite frankly, online courses just don’t get the job done. Less than 5% of online course students ever complete the course. And less than 1% find the success they were looking for.

That’s why this coaching program is built 100% with your success in mind.

You will never hear me say that hiring us makes your success easy. But I will say that it makes failure difficult.

What does success look like?

It looks like Lisa Cressman—an Episcopal Priest Who Generated $51,750 in Sales of Her Mentorship Program Within 6 Weeks of Becoming A Coaching Client.

successful client

When Lisa first became a coaching client, she was two weeks out from the first public launch of her mentorship program for preachers. She needed a plan for launching it to her small email list that would fill the program with 16 new students, and she needed it fast.

After learning all about Lisa’s program, her coach mapped out an exact 4-week promotion plan for her to follow. Here’s what it looked like at a high level:

  • Week 1: Case Study sent to list + 2 Live Q&A Information Calls

  • Week 2: Case Study sent to list + 1 Live Q&A Information Call

  • Week 3: 2 Case Studies sent to list + 1 Live Q&A Information Call

  • Week 4: 2 Live Q&A Information Calls + 3 encouragement emails on Final Day

But we didn’t just give Lisa the plan and then send her on her way. We also had weekly check-ins calls throughout her launch, provided swipe copy and feedback on each email, and guided her through the entire process, so she knew exactly what adjustments to make in real time

The results?

Lisa blew past her initial goal of 16 and filled a total of 23 seats in her mentorship program at $375 per month for 6 months, for a total of $51,750.

“This was the first real public launch of my mentorship program. I was scared to death. But my coach put together a custom plan for me that out performed my wildest expectations. With the week-by-week email and live workshop campaign outlined and a coach walking beside me, everything else became easier, and a bigger impact possible.”

It looks like Dominik Wever, a Freelancer and Online Course Creator Who Made Back His Investment Within a Month of Joining

successful client

Dominik sells consulting services and courses that help software companies get more customers with video marketing.

When he hired us as his coach, we analyzed his business and quickly realized he had an untapped source of high-quality leads and customers: his existing network.

His coach mapped out what we call an Ambassador Outreach campaign—a series of personal emails Dominik would send his contacts designed to get his business and email list in front of the people most likely to promote it.

At first, Dominik wasn’t confident the campaign would lead to actual growth.

“To be honest, I was skeptical at first if your systems—and especially the Ambassador Outreach—would work in my market,” he said.

“I'm German, and my existing network mainly consists of German and European contacts which are much more conservative compared to the U.S. And my Video Marketing Consulting for SaaS companies is not easy to sell either.”

But then he saw the results:

  • 30% of the contacts he emailed signed up for his email list, adding 250+ subscribers within 4 weeks.

  • 5% became what Dominik calls “VIP contacts”—people who expressed interest in his products or services.

  • After following up with those VIP contacts, Dominik ended up sending out 7 proposals totaling over $33,000. “By the end of the month,” he said, “at least 2 proposals will be approved, which means I'll already have my initial investment into Growth University returned, just after doing the Ambassador Outreach.”

That’s the difference the right plan—and the support system to help you implement it—can make.

“The results I got from following your step-by-step process speak for themselves. Thank you again for your great material and input. It was the best decision for me to join Growth University!”

It looks like Michael Saad—an Agency Owner Who Turned One Partnership into $75,200 in Revenue

successful client

Michael Saad runs Digital1010, a marketing agency that helps law firms generate leads and increase revenue.

When we first looked at Michael’s business, we saw a familiar problem: his agency was bringing in a steady stream of revenue, but he couldn’t find the time to actually grow that revenue. All his time was spent writing custom proposals that served each client differently.

The solution? We created a plan for productizing Michael’s service so selling and delivering it would be much easier to scale. We then built a partnership outreach strategy designed to get that service in front of the perfect type of customers.

Using this plan, Michael was able to co-host an online workshop with a partner who promoted it to a warm email list of 5,000+ law firms. The results?

  • 150 qualified law firms signed up for the event

  • 50 attended the workshop

  • 5 decided to attend a 1-on-1 session with Michael

  • Michael converted 1 of those leads into a multi-month contract worth $75,200.

The instant revenue boost was nice, but the best part was Michael finally had a system for attracting high-value clients that actually felt sustainable.

“As a business owner, it's hard to see the forest for the trees. The team at Growth University helped me identify where to focus my energy so I could implement strategies that resulted in increasing revenue without 25 moving parts that monopolized all my time.”

You’ll see the change in your business within weeks, not months.

You shouldn’t have to wait months before you start seeing measurable progress from a coaching program. Increasing your revenue is our top priority once you join—which is why it tends to happen fast.

Surround yourself with a seasoned coach and marketing team that’s built to 2x your monthly revenue.

I'M READY TO TALK ABOUT GROWTH UNIVERSITY

You Can Double Your Monthly Revenue In 12 months or Less

If we didn’t believe that statement, you wouldn’t have made it this far.

The question isn’t whether it’s possible. The only question is how long you want it to take.You can keep throwing things at the wall and hoping some of it sticks. You can go it alone through those months-long periods of feeling stuck, overwhelmed, and exhausted. You can keep trying to reverse-engineer every successful funnel you see until something finally works.

Or you can confidently wake up every day because you know an experienced team of marketers are meticulously monitoring every aspect of your business and coaching you on exactly what you need to do.

You can have an entire team in your corner with answers whenever you encounter a roadblock.

You can have the structure and accountability we’ve seen get breakthrough results for business owners just like you again and again.

You don’t have to take on the crazy challenge of growing your business all by yourself.

You don’t have to keep jumping from tactic to tactic or waiting for the right strategy to finally click into place.

In fact, once you’re a client, you’ll discover that tactics and strategies are almost never the reason growth takes off in the first place.

Growth takes off when the right system is in place to sustainably attract, teach, and monetize quality leads. And when you learn to put that system in place once, you can maintain and scale it for years to come as your business grows.

We created this coaching program not only to help you implement that system step-by-step, but to give you the kind of team and structure that make it really hard to fail.

My hope is that by this time next week, our team is already conducting your personal interview, learning the ins and outs of your business, and mapping out your custom growth plan so you can hit the ground running and experience the best 12 months of growth your business has ever seen.
