Matt Currin and Jeff Bateson discuss how a coach with training content
can take advantage of the Convene Platform to make money.
Jeff Bateson, the Community Leader for Convene Coaching and Convene Soccer, discusses real world examples that outline why Convene Soccer is different than other platforms. Convene can build on what you are already doing. Jeff walks you through the process and shows you all you can do on the platform for FREE!!!
Jeff uses the example of a soccer coach that has a newsletter with a large following
For over 6 years John has been producing and sending out a weekly newsletter full of tips and training drills to his large email list of soccer coaches. He joins Convene Soccer and creates his own group. He starts writing up some training tips in experiences using the same content that he has already created for past newsletters.
John knows that his content is valuable because of the large number of email subscribers he has. John joins the affiliate program (FREE) so he can share his affiliate link to his group in his next newsletter. If any of them purchase content anywhere on Convene (any of the communities), he will receive a referral commission – BONUS having done nothing more than he would have anyway in promoting his group.
In his bi-weekly newsletter, he sends his followers to his group where he has written up an experience using that week’s information and asks a few questions they can answer at the end of the experience. This turns the one-way conversation of a newsletter into a 2-way conversation allowing him to engage with his subscribers. John finds he gains some valuable feedback that helps him plan future content.
Because his group is in a community all about soccer, it is full of people that are going to be interested in the knowledge he is sharing. Anyone in the community can join his group and engage with his content.
After joining a few other soccer groups, John meets other soccer coaches and trainers within Convene Soccer which makes this a great networking opportunity and a chance to learn from other coaches. John has several conversations with Dan who runs a weekly soccer podcast and is asked to be a guest on an upcoming episode.
Up to this point, all of this has been FREE exposure and with the possibility of potential affiliate referral income. John can later decide he has content he would like to offer for money and eventually upgrades to the Premier Membership in order to offer 2 different courses at a reasonable price.
This is just one example of the ways you can use the platform to accomplish multiple goals. It can be applied to businesses, YouTubers, bloggers, coaches, artists etc.
