Are you someone that is thinking about becoming a Beachbody Coach but don’t consider yourself a salesperson and cringe at the thought of selling something to someone?
If your like most people, you probably answered “yes” to the question above. No one likes the thought of being considered a slimy fast talking salesperson.
I’ve got great news for you!
Beachbody Coaches Are Not Salespeople
Well, technically Beachbody Coaches ARE paid commissions on any retail sales they make…so let me explain what I mean.
From my experience, the most successful Coaches are those that using Beachbody products themselves, have gotten great results, and genuinely love the products. When this is the case, it’s not “selling”, but rather “recommending”.
As a Beachbody Coach you’re getting paid for sharing your results with others. You are sharing a product that you use yourself, and that you know works.
Beachbody Coaches are more like consultants than salespeople. They provide information to help the client make an informed decision.
If you’ve done a Beachbody workout program and didn’t get results or thought the it was a waste of money (which is very very rare), obviously becoming a Beachbody Coach wouldn’t make sense for you.
Beachbody Coaches Must Be A Product Of The Product
In order to be a successful Beachbody Coach, a person must be a “product of the product”. This doesn’t mean that you have to be in perfect shape with 6 pack abs in order to have a successful business. This just means that you are using the products yourself and working on improving your own health and fitness level.
To not be using the products would be hypocritical. For example, you can’t you give your opinion on Shakeology if you’re not drinking it yourself. If a potential customer were to ask you, “how does Chocolate Shakeology taste?”
And you replied with, “I don’t know, I never had it”….what kind of impression do you think that would leave on your customer?….Obviously not a very good one.
Being a “product of the product” also doesn’t mean that you have to have done EVERY Beachbody workout program or even like every program. There are a handful of workout program that I’ve never done. For example, I have never done Body Gospel, Slim In 6, Tai Cheng, or Brazil Butt Lift, and have no plans on doing them anytime soon.
But, the workout that I have done, P90x, P90x 2, Insanity, and Body Beast I have loved them all. Because of my experience with those 4 workouts programs, I feel confident in recommending any Beachbody workout program. I know they only put out high qualify stuff.
If you’re doing a Beachbody workout, and drinking Shakeology, I’m certain you are getting great results. I’m also certain that people are noticing and asking what you’ve been doing. If this is the case, you are already doing what Beachbody Coaches do, which is simply share with others what you’re doing to get results.
If you’re recommending a Beachbody product to someone, and they are buying because of your recommendation. it makes sense for you to become a Coach and to be rewarded for your referral.
Don’t you agree?
While being a salesperson isn’t required in order to be a successful Beachbody Coach, one trait that is required is being able to handle rejection. As a Beachbody Coach, people are going to tell you “no”. You will get a lot of no’s. It is important to not let a few no’s discourage you. All you are doing is providing information, if the potential customer wants to buy or sign up with to become a Coach, then great, if not, no big deal, it’s not for everyone.
Being a Beachbody Coach doesn’t mean you are out chasing and begging people. You are looking for people that are looking for what you have to offer. It is important to keep this mindset.
