Working as a life coach is all about the connection you make with your clients, and that connection extends past just being face-to-face with them. Let’s talk about the best ways to keep in touch with your life coach clients.
We have dozens of ways to keep in touch with clients, but some methods work much better than others. A couple of the most common ways to keep in touch with people are through phone calls, text messages, emails, and social media. However, when it comes to current clients, there should be a level of professionalism that is maintained. When communicating with current clients, it is best to ask them how they prefer to be contacted, but generally, you should stick to text messaging and talking with them on the phone.
Sometimes clients can be weird about communicating over the phone, but communicating over the phone makes clients feel special and appreciated. Unlike social media and email, phone communication is much more intentional and personal.
For past clients or clients that are no longer working with you, you can contact them in a less invasive way. For past clients, it is best to consider emailing them to check in with them so they do not feel like you are pressuring them to answer. This also works for clients you haven’t heard from in a while.
Communication is a key part of being a successful life coach, and it is important to communicate regularly with your clients. Whether your client is a current client or one who has graduated from your services, keeping in touch is a great way to remind them that they are valued and appreciated. If you find that you struggle with keeping in touch with your clients, you may need more life coaching training. A certified life coaching course, such as Coach Training Alliance’s Certified Coach Program, can help you hone your coaching skills and become an expert in communication.
