How to Create A Six Figure Coaching Program

by D'Arcy Benincosa

In this episode, Rachel and I dive into how she went from full time photographer to six figure business coach. We tell you everything you need to know about getting started, figuring out your coaching niche, and designing your course for success. Hit play if you’re ready to level up your business!

Meet Rachel Traxler:

Rachel is a Wedding Photographer and Photography Business Coach empowering ambitious wedding photographers to become in demand by elevating client connection so they can work less and serve more. She has helped thousands of photographers + entrepreneurs over the past few years through coaching, courses, speaking events, and free resources bringing a warm and inviting approach to everything she does. She is also the host of the Gold Biz Podcast where you can find her “to the point” approach helpful for actionable tips for your business! Her goal is to help photographers be the go-to in their market so they can work less and make more!

Taking the leap from full-time photographer to business coach may feel scary, but it doesn’t have to be. Life coaches, business coaches, business consultants – whatever you choose to call them all start at the same place. 

3 steps to become a business coach:

  1. Do 1:1 mentorships with people who want to learn from you. Use this as an opportunity to be a business coach without actually being a business coach. 
  2. Create a small group coaching program. This can be a replica of your 1:1 mentorship program but with a larger group as you start to understand their business questions. 
  3. Keep track of the most commonly asked business questions. You will use this list of business questions to draft your first business course or business coaching curriculum. 

5 crucial steps for a successful business coaching program:

  1. Determine your course outcomes. What is the overall goal of your program? Do you want to help professional photographers make millions of dollars? Do you want to help generate business ideas? Get clear on the outcome and build from there. 
  2. Decide what type of business coaching is right for you. You can launch an evergreen course, mastermind, guides, workshops, 1:1 coaching, or something else we haven’t thought of yet!
  3. Create a timeline. Coaching programs range from a few weeks to even years. 
  4. Develop a curriculum that follows your coaching program.
  5. Create the overall structure. Will the coaching program be self-paced or will you have structured timelines? How often will you have live coaching sessions or will you have none at all?
