The service sector makes up a large and valuable part of our local and national economy, and if you’re in the service industry there are several ways you can ensure your business succeeds. While the service industry can vary widely, there are a few practices which most successful service providers put in place.

I am a business coach based in the Louisville, Kentucky area and I have worked with local companies representing many industries in the past, including small mom and pop shops to large corporations. In my experience, I have learned how to help service companies reach their goals and I can do the same for your company.

In the sections to follow, I will discuss a few ways a professional business coach can help your company thrive if you’re in the service industry. This isn’t a comprehensive list of how I can help your company, but it will point out a few perks which are especially helpful for service providers. Read on to learn more about coaching and hopefully determine if it’s right for your business.

Marketing and Promotional Assistance

I work exclusively with companies in or near Louisville because I feel a big advantage of my service is my local knowledge and expertise in this area. As a service provider, you can have the best service in the local market and still struggle if people aren’t aware of what you do. I help my clients to optimize their marketing budgets and use my expertise to help them find the best ways to promote their service to potential clients. By understanding what they do well and what their goals are, I can create a marketing plan which targets their ideal customers and give them the chance to grow their business quickly.

Strategic Planning Assistance

If a business fails to plan properly they can find themselves treading water rather than moving forward. When I work with a company, I analyze their operation to determine concrete steps we can take to capitalize on their strengths, shore up any weaknesses and evaluate which opportunities would help reach the company’s goals in the future. By making a strategic plan which improves the business and outlines potential opportunities, we can seek them out and be ready when they arise.

Skill Building and Training

Many people in the service industry are great at what they do, but they don’t have much experience in the corporate world. Every client’s needs and experience is different, so I offer training in key areas of business to help them become more well-rounded and able to handle running their business. These skills include time management, leadership, strategic planning and more. In some instances, I also can train entire departments in areas such as leadership or sales to help the entire company perform at a higher level.

If you own a business in the service industry and you want to gain a competitive advantage in your market and gain an ally in achieving your goals, I am here to help. Give me a call today to learn more about my coaching services.
