Your program to far-reaching podcasting success and a lifetime of high value clients

Your career in fitness is so valuable to people…

You help people transform their lives and their lifestyles…

After working with you, your clients live longer, happier lives…

Enjoying more freedom, mobility and energy…

It’s an amazing career, isn’t it?

But there’s always a constant struggle for new clients, isn’t there?

If you’re anything like me, you’ve probably tried everything to have a strong, consistent flow of high quality, high paying clients…

I know it can be demoralising, upsetting, even soul-destroying at times…

But don’t worry, if you’re willing to put in the work for long-term success…

Podcasting is for you.

I know what you’re thinking…

“I don’t know anything about podcasting.”

“I don’t want people to hear my voice.”

“I don’t have enough content to entertain people.”

“I don’t have the right equipment.”

I could go on all day, after all, there’s a million reasons to not try podcasting isn’t there?

But we’re different, aren’t we?

We’re fitness trainers and coaches, people need us.

And they need to know that we can help them.

Podcasting is an incredible tool for getting yourself known and showing people how you can help them…

  • It helps you build and showcase your expertise
  • It entertains and informs people 
  • It builds trust in you that would normally take years to build
  • It forges strong connections between you and your audience

And it helps you become an in-demand trainer, with high quality, high paying clients queueing up to work with you.

The Little-Known Secret About Podcasting

There’s a big secret about podcasting that a lot of successful podcasters don’t want people to know…

ANYONE can succeed in podcasting.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s not a get rich quick scheme, you won’t succeed overnight. But if you’re willing to put in the work over the long-term, you will succeed. And it will pay dividends for years.

If this sounds like it’s for you, you’ve come to the right place. Because I’ve created a comprehensive podcast program designed to give you everything you need to succeed in podcasting.

It’s called the “Catalog Closer” and it will transform your career, your success and your income.

The Catalog Closer All-Inclusive Podcasting Program

is a done-for-you service designed to help you launch your first 10 podcast episodes over the next 3 months.

Your podcast will become a place where you can be your true self. Where you can showcase your personality, your knowledge and your skills. 

Catalog Closer comprises of three main phases, what we call Build, Launch and Rocket Phases…

BUILD

Build – Build yourself as a creator in a fun and sustainable format.

LAUNCH

Launch – Have everything you need to launch your first season everywhere there’s podcasts, Apple, Spotify etc.

ROCKET

Rocket – Rocket your podcast’s success with new listeners, shares and conversions into your ecosystem.

Each phase plays a vital part in your podcast’s journey to success. 

Who is Catalog Closer for?

If you’ve spent hours, days or even weeks trying to maximize your outreach but failing, this is for you. 

Your social medias are all valuable to your success. But as you know, finding the perfect hashtags and creating new content can take up valuable time. 

Catalog Closer is designed for coaches and trainers who want to build a knowledge base that is searchable by their ideal client. It helps you maximize your time when it comes to content creation.

Podcasting allows you to take advantage of video, audio and text formats. These can be consumed by your ideal client no matter what their taste. Whether they like to watch, listen or read, long form or short form, you’ll have content for them.

Podcasting allows you to bottle up all the energy in a room and play it on demand. Your energy and enthusiasm will come across in your podcasts and your audience will love it.

If, like most of us, you struggle to qualify and win over your coaching clients, Catalog Closer is for you. You see, your podcast will help you connect with your ideal clients, long before you ever meet them.

This ensures that before you’ve even spoken to them, they’ve decided that you’re the person that they want to work with. They don’t need long qualifying calls or shady sales techniques to convince them. Because you’ve already done all the hard work with your podcast.

This is great because it means you have a strong closing rate (about 20%, which is 1 in 7 appointments – including 2 no shows.) Not only that, but it also means you can charge more for your services, because your audience will be desperate to work with you.

Now, you may think building a system that helps create this level of trust and connection is complex and scary…

Let me tell you a secret…

It can be if you don’t do it right.

But here’s the great thing, with Catalog Closer, we do all the hard work for you…

From helping you plan your first 10 podcast episodes, to fully editing each 30-minute episode, and everything else involved. We either do it for you, or teach you how to do it for yourself.

Blake Scheidt – From Stressed Out to Stress Free

Blake had his doubts about Catalog Closer, but decided he needed to do something to secure his future, so he took the plunge and invested in himself.

When he started, Blake was stressed out with about 12 coaching clients. He really cares about his clients, taking the time to build strong relationships with them.

That’s why I loved working with him on Catalog Closer. I could see how desperate he was, not just for more clients, but also to be able to spend more time relaxing with his family.

He’d left his corporate job to pursue his passion and he needed to make it work. Before he started with me the only way he could keep going was by working long days personal training.

But, once he’d signed onto Catalog Closer and worked with me, he built his audience through his podcasts and now has a happy roster of 42 coaching clients. Not only that, but he can spend more quality time with his family because he doesn’t spend hours each day networking for new clients.

I Know the Struggle of Finding High Quality Clients Online

Believe me, I know. It took me years of trial and error to get my podcasts right and to build a production system that lets my content do the convincing for me.

But now it’s in place, it’s there forever. Constantly growing my audience and having ideal clients coming to me, already convinced that they want to work with me.

I created Catalog Closer to do the same for you…

So, you can say goodbye to trying to prove yourself to potential clients. Who, let’s face it, probably weren’t going to buy anyway.

And you can say hello to high quality, high paying clients calling you and begging to work with you.

Catalog Closer helps you reach the right listeners (without needing 25,000 downloads per episode).

Catalog Closer Success Stories

Dawid lives in Warsaw, Poland. He’d listened to my podcasts before our first call. Don’t underestimate the power of your voice. You see, Dawid reached out to me because he already trusted me. We’d built a connection through my podcasts and for him, it was a no brainer to have me as his coach.

I’ve got over 400 hours of content that works for me every day. When you record episodes that people enjoy listening to, everything becomes easy…

You get more listeners, more great reviews, more fans and more ideal clients wanting to work with you.

How Blake Personalizes Client Experience Using Podcasts

“I used to just send people like things I listened to that were impacting me because these people are like mentors or coaches to me. But they’re nobody to these other people. They’re just a topic or a resource of information. And so what people are really looking for I think is the connection to their coach. You don’t make podcasts and websites to get big and famous. You make them have tools to connect with your clients better.”

Scaling Your Best Conversations to Work For You

“I really wanted to understand how can I reduplicate what that client’s experience was when she did four hours of the podcast with me to make the experience better. And so the power of recording yourself I’ve found is so important. So I don’t have to continue to repeat myself. So it was really just the conversations that you’re having on a regular basis with clients, you’re turning into helpful content that can be recorded and used and sent to more people to help more people. 

So it’s creating more change. And it’s also allowing my business to grow with me. It’s scaling me to not have to say the same thing that I know and it’s good, but at the same time, it helped me understand the value of how many conversations I could be having that I can’t have all at once. And so the podcast really allows me to have that creative edge, but also, that scalability to help me grow my business in a way that can help more people, but also expand what I’m trying to give to the health and fitness community.”

How Tish Uses Podcasting to Create Deeper Relationships With Her Community

Tish is a great example of someone who uses podcasting to connect deeply with her community and clients. Since she has plans & programs that lead to a very high volume of clients, her episodes are a very personal touch from a client experience standpoint.

Her social media fans get to see a different side of Tish. There’s a lot of ground covered in 30min episodes. When people ask me “What kind of results can I expect from podcasting?” The truthful answer is that it depends on your existing systems. Tish has been doing this for years and has people interested in what she’s doing. It’s working. Podcasting just adds grease to the wheel. (Make sure the bolts are fastened).

If you are starting from scratch, you can’t expect this to be the magic pill. But I hope you see how investing in the skills & reps to create with this system is a chess move worth making.

“I started making pretty good money, and then the more business owners I spoke to, the more they kept saying, you need to continue to invest in your own business. [Podcasting] is an investment in my business. I see other trainers doing it and I really, really liked [Misbah]. I loved [his] energy. I’m always alone. I’m always doing things by myself, but it’s nice to have someone like [Misbah] helping me. That’s the only way you’re going to grow, is if you constantly are invested in it, financially and otherwise.”

Athan S. – Gym Owner, Austin, Texas

What excited about working with Athan was that he wanted to use podcasts as a way to connect with 250+ members at his gym. He’s in the military, owns a successful gym, and a local grocery store that fuels his community!

Kyle S. – The Comic Book Lair – Irvine, California

“Everything’s set up so seamlessly. I would have had no idea how to build a system like this and it all. it surprises me. Just how detailed and how much everything you need, is there. It’s been huge. I can’t even imagine trying to do it on my own.”

Josefine H. – Celebrity Trainer, 2021 NPC European Pro Champ – Sweden

“I really wanted to start a podcast, but I literally didn’t know where to start or how to do it. All these tech things were so intimidating for me. I was like “I have no idea if I can actually talk on a podcast and host my own show.” Then I was so lucky to meet Misbah and we talked about it. And I was like, ‘Omg, this is literally what I have been looking for!’ He taught me how to think when I record things. And helped me to overcome all the obstacles that I had in my head going into it. He helped me to overcome imposter syndrome. He helped me to brainstorm ideas for topics or who to have on my podcast, if I should do it on my own, or if I should have guests and, and everything helped me so much. It took the guesswork out of it. [Without Misbah], I would probably not even have started my own podcast still. I’m so thankful for everything he does for me every week. And I can’t wait to keep working with him.”

Beating Podcast Imposter Syndrome

Dan & Elise – Coach & Nutritionist, Los Angeles, CA

“Working with Misbah has catapulted our business forward in the best ways possible.

He has been with us each step of the way, supporting us, guiding us, and most importantly giving us systems and implantations to grow our company at a rate we never thought possible. His knowledge and expertise are unmatched.”

Hi, I’m Misbah Haque

A stand up comedian and podcast producer. I was unknown on the internet and started with zero people outside of my immediate circle.

Today, I produce and publish podcasts for fitness coaches—including all the tech & editing stuff—so that they can just show up and record.

Podcasts make for awesome social media content, but the real payoff is that potential clients are pretty much sold by the time they get on a call as they feel like they already know you.

Frequently Asked Questions

Everyone has a podcast.

There’s a good reason for this. More and more people are seeing the power and potential of podcasts. Pretty soon everyone will have one. Don’t be the one left behind, start now and get a head start.

I don’t want to put out garbage content.

Thank the Lord! We wouldn’t let you anyway! Our system for crafting content is designed to bring quality to the table. You have quality within you, we’ll help you find it and create it consistently.

Do I have to be on Instagram or social media?

No, but it definitely helps. Your speed of progress and ability to hit these ideal benchmarks will depend on your existing sphere of influence and what tools you’re willing to use. However, if you choose not to harness social media, we can still help you get high quality, high paying clients.

How often do I have to be posting in order to grow?

I would say 1-2 podcast episodes per week. But then 5-7 social media posts promoting those larger episodes would be ideal. The minimum amount you’d need to stay visible is about 3 posts per week.

How many downloads can I get?

Growth is very slow if you’re starting from scratch. The first 6 months can be brutal. Your listeners need time to build a relationship with you. Downloads are cool, but it’s important not to get too obsessed with them. there are other metrics that are more important to track, appointments booked per week, website traffic etc.

What am I gonna talk about?

We’ll help you find your true self and showcase your unique abilities. This will help you build a real connection with your audience. You’ll learn ways of creating unique, engaging content, even if you feel like you have nothing to say. Trust us, you do have something to say, and people want to hear it.

Can I use FB/IG ads?

For sure. I can help you strategize the best way to utilize your budget and drive down lead costs.

What kind of equipment do I need?

A mic, headphones, camera, and a recorder of some sort is really all you need. We’ll show you what cost-effective tools to use. Also where to go if you’re looking for a premium studio setup. Just email me at miz@podmahal.com.

How long will it take me to see clients?

Depending on the season of business you’re in AND your compliance with the course content, I’d say within 90 days of launching. If you already have a well-oiled machine, you could close a client within a few days of launching. You won’t be passively waiting for listeners to become clients. I’ll show you how to actively ensure this content makes its way into your sales process.

​I’m not ready now, but maybe a few months from now.

That’s totally fine! But you will still have to get your ‘bad reps’ out of the way at some point. Why not start chipping away at it now? A catalog takes time to build and you could have your first 10 episodes done in a couple months (or even weeks).

What kind of ROI do you normally see?

This will depend on the price point of your offers, existing database, speed of implementation, and so on. But for example, if you get 2-4 clients @ $300 / month = $600-1200 / month.

How long do you normally retain clients? If you said 6 months, then the lifetime value of that client is $3,600-7,200.

But if that’s your main concern, I would stop right now. Because you need to buckle in for a long game to really reap the benefits of podcasting.

Paying for media production is 100% worth it for me over paying for an ad or some new business cards. This content will work for you in the months and years to come if you play your cards right.
