Online Coaching: The Best Systems for Your Online Coaching Business

Podcast cover
Read more

In this episode we do an open Q&A in which we answer several listener questions including:


-"Can you share some of the software programs you have seen successfully used for the trainers and their clients? I am thinking exercise library with YouTube videos, the obvious like text and email, Marco Polo, FaceTime for workouts, that kind of thing. I want to have some basic systems in place before I start reaching out to potential clients." (23:31)

-"You guys have talked about (especially on the last episode) how much you charge & given a typical range, but can you talk about what's included monthly for each client? So, if you're charging $350/month, what exactly is the client getting for that? Would be very helpful to hear you guys discuss." (40:14)

We also discuss what changes we’ve both made that have allowed to work less than we used while still growing our businesses. (9:43)
