Here's an overview of what is covered in each module, and the process you'll progress through to go from zero to starting a successful consulting or coaching business with paying clients.
Here's a brief weekly summary...
Week 1: Fundamentals and Foundations
Regardless of where you are with your consulting business right now - beginner or highly experienced - you should start here. This content is essential for newbies, and even successful business owners with years of experience under their belt should go through all of this content. Whatever stage you're at, you'll learn a lot here.
During this module Sam Ovens teaches some foundational principles of consulting which the rest of the course builds upon. After that though you'll dive right in to some real work. This includes focusing in on your niche and validating it, as well as crafting your offer which is the actual product or service you'll be delivering in your niche to solve their problems, which you'll learn to identify. That might sound like an in-depth process, and it is. However taking Week 1 seriously will make sure your consulting business is being built on a solid foundation with the best chance of succeeding.
Week 2: New Paradigm and World View
This week is best described as a complete mindset re-boot or re-programming. One thing that Sam has always taught, even in his earliest material, is that your mindset is ultimately responsible for a large portion of your business success, or your failure. This isn't a fluff module on "positive thinking" or anything of that nature, it is an incredibly in-depth process to changing how you look at the world and what is possible. You'll learn how to develop the mindset necessary to see success, and essentially turn yourself into the type of person who typically succeeds in life.
Sam claims inside the Consulting Accelerator course that week 2 alone will change your life. If you apply what is taught in this section then I wholeheartedly agree. It definitely changed mine.
Week 3: Alchemy of Client Conversion
In this module you're introduced to the famous Sam Ovens sales script. You'll be customizing the script to fit your market and offer, then getting some real-world practice both with other members of the Consulting Accelerator program and with real potential customers. After completing this week you'll be safe in the knowledge that your sales process is rock solid, and based on a script that has been proven in hundreds of different niches by Sam Ovens consulting students.
Week 3 also covers some of key psychology of sales points so you're able to stay on track during down periods as well as up periods. You'll learn the mathematics of sales and lead conversion, in order to generate consistent sales results over time even some sales days are always good and others will always be not so good.
Week 4: Alchemy of Client Attraction
After learning how to turn leads into sales in Week 3, you'll now focus on attracting and generating leads in Week 4. This includes finding prospects, starting conversations with them, and filtering them to leave yourself talking with just the most qualified potential customers for your business.
The lead generation strategies taught in this section are organic (meaning not using paid advertising). You'll also be building a simple website and funnel during this module that filters your leads and lets them automatically book sales calls with you, if they're qualified.
Week 5: Fractal Facebook Evolution
This section is all about Facebook ads, which is something Sam Ovens is known and highly respected for mastering. Sam's success with Consulting Accelerator and selling it to over 15,000 people is largely down to how he uses and scales Facebook ads. Week 5 teaches his process so you're able to implement it in your business and scale up your lead generation as needed.
Ideally you'll already have generated some sales already during the earlier weeks of the Consulting Accelerator course. The recommended strategy from Sam is to use that money to re-invest into your business from those first customers, you'll use it to pay for implementing the Sam Ovens Facebook ads strategy as taught in Week 5.
All I'll say about the actual Facebook ads training here is that it is incredibly in-depth. No matter how experienced you are in this area, you'll absolutely learn a lot in this module. It is designed for beginners and experts alike.
Week 6: Minimum Viable Service Delivery
Now during Week 6 the Sam Ovens Consulting Accelerator course shifts it's focus onto actually delivering the product or service you've been learning how to sell. As with everything in business, Sam wants you to do this in the most efficient way possible by determining the minimum input required to achieve the maximum output for your clients or customers. After you've done that, you'll learn how to hire experts in your niche who can deliver an effective and well priced service on your behalf if you are not going to be doing the service delivery yourself.f
Everything from setting expectations, product/service delivery models, hiring and vetting contractors, managing cashflow and expenses, through automating your delivery as much as possible is covered in this week. After going through this content you'll be confident in your ability to deliver whatever it is you've been learning to sell, and to a high standard.
Week 7: The Next Level
Here you'll get Sam's thoughts on scaling up a business, the best models for doing that, and changes to make to your products or services in order to let them scale easily and efficiently. This is a section you'll not really need until you've made well into six figures with Consulting Accelerator and are starting to hit your capacity for the number of clients and customers you can handle. When you get to that point, Sam Ovens shows you what to do next in this module.
Week 8: Bonus Week
There is a bonus Week 8 included which focuses on delivering digital marketing services in more detail. This section is only relevant, for the most part, for anyone selling things like SEO, PPC, email marketing, or any other digital marketing services. Great content though, but definitely not compulsory.
