About the author
Matt Reagan is a PGA Teaching Professional located in Buies Creek, NC. Growing up in upstate NY, Matt always had his sights set on owning his own business. He was a very active leader in academics and sports growing up, and always had a knack for solving problems and teaching. This ultimately led to his decision to pursue a career in the golf industry as a teaching professional. Matt is currently a Co-Founder and Director of iGrow Golf Programs, LLC and also is the owner of his personal coaching brand the C4 Golf Coaching System, LLC. The story of what Matt has done from the time he had left high school to where he is today is a unique one and really showcases his passion for teaching.
He attended Campbell University earning his Business Administration Degree, double majoring in PGA Golf Management & Marketing. While in school Matt took the opportunity to teach golf on each of his 3 internships and it became very apparent that the most successful coaches in the industry have had a variety of skill sets. The greats were great because they not only continuously were furthering their education on the latest findings of teaching golf, but on their businesses as well.
His interests in business, marketing, technology and design led to him down a unique path for a golf professional where he decided to begin his own web-marketing business while he was in school. He learned how to create websites, sell digital products online (e-books, videos, etc), started online blogs, create email marketing plans, setup customer relationship management systems and much more. It was during that time that Matt really learned a lot about using modern marketing tools to grow small businesses. He wrote and distributed his first e-book "The Groupon Marketing Plan" which was a free e-book on one of his blogs.
It wasn’t long after that Matt began to realize that he needed to focus his efforts on what his true passion was, coaching golf. He closed up his web marketing endeavors and embarked on his journey where he found his true passion, coaching junior golf. When teaching golf on his internships he saw the room for great improvements within the junior golf industry. Matt had always found teaching juniors more challenging and liked the idea of improving on kids are taught. This led to him applying the skill sets he learned from his experiences as a web marketer to focusing it on growing his coaching brands full time.
Matt first began to focus on his personal coaching brand The C4 Golf Coaching System (learn more at SwingBlueprint.com) before collaborating with fellow PGA Professional Ryan Dailey about developing long-term golf programs for juniors. Matt and Ryan started iGrow Golf Programs (formerly known as The Edge Golf Programs) in late 2009 at Keith Hills Golf Club in Buies Creek, NC. When Matt graduated from Campbell at the age of 23 he he was offered the Head Professional job at Keith Hills, which allowed him to teach and still work together with Ryan on developing their junior golf business. Since then Matt has created another free e-book for his personal coaching brand called “The 3 Barriers to Golf Improvement”, is ¾ way done with another called “The Swing Blueprint”, and has 2 other books on junior golf development that are in the queue.
Throughout his experiences Matt has learned and applied the knowledge of marketing and creating digital products to grow his brands. Matt designed the “The E-Book Blueprint” to be a foolproof, step-by-step guide, that will help you plan, write, design, edit, publish, and market your first e-book.
