27 Best Life Coach Websites + Coaching Website Blueprint

I also list out the essential things you need to have on your website and the common mistakes coaches make while setting up their coaching website.

So let’s get into it.

Chapter 1:

Your Website Essentials

Before we get into the list of the best life coach websites, it’s important to briefly touch upon some fundamentals of coaching websites.

Why is having one important?

What are the general things that your website must have?

You will get much more value when you go through the list of websites by being aware of these fundamentals.

So let’s get into it.

The Importance Of A Website

A website is the business card of the internet age.

How many times have you used the phrase “Google it”?

Searching for things online has become such a common thing that “Google” was added to the official Oxford dictionary back in 2006!

And the case is no different for your business.

Having a website legitimizes your business. Your website will be the center of your company’s online presence. According to a survey, 81% of people research online before making a purchase. 

And that number is ever increasing. 

And even then, almost 45% of small businesses don’t have a website!

Importance of being online
IMPORTANCE OF BEING ONLINE

What does that mean for you?

If you don’t have a website, you are instantly losing out on credibillity and opportunities for your coaching business.

On the flip side, having a website, immediately gives you a leg up on almost half of your competition.

Your website must instill trust & confidence in your audience

Your website attracts people and encourages them to do business with you. It brands you and what you have to offer. 

When a potential client visits your website, it must leave them with a good impression and confidence in you and your ability. 

Captivate. Engage. Activate.

The Must-Haves

Before I share detailed reviews of some of the best coach websites and why they work, here are some ‘Must Haves’ straight off the bat. 

Pay attention, this can serve as your checklist.

In fact, I’ve created a checklist which you can download at the end of this section.

Non-Technical Aspects

  1. Overall look and feel

A feel-good factor that leaves them with hope for the better – they should feel absolutely convinced that they are bringing in a good change in their lives and setting course for a bright and happy future by signing up for your program. 

Keep in mind an effective website that converts is more important than a beautiful one.

  1. Smooth User Flow

They should feel like they are in an effortless flow while they navigate through your website and can easily find what they need to and take the actions they intend to via clear call to actions (CTAs).

Their flow should not be broken by any interruptions like broken pages and links, landing in unexpected parts of your website or getting distracted.

  1. Clear Call To Actions

The call to action, also known as a CTA is a prompt that tells the person looking at your content what is the next action they should take.

According to research, 90% of the people who read your headline will read your call to action

People visiting websites are generally impatient and have short attention spans. ess than 15 seconds of attention

Once they land on your website and find your message is relevant for them, you want to capitalize on that and give them a clear answer to what to do next.

It’s important that your call to action is clear, eye-catching and they know what to expect once they click on it.

It should be clear what the next step for someone looking at your website should be.

Giving a free ebook, a checklist or something else of value in exchange for their email is a tried and testing CTA

  1. Clear Messaging

A good website should represent your core business clearly to your clients and also show how your business can benefit them.

Research shows that on average, 55% of all pageviews get less than 15 seconds of attention

You have less than 15 seconds to convey the core benefit the person visiting your website will get and keep them hooked to stay on longer.

Create content that is appealing to the audience and is sectioned by clear headers. Review your content and make sure that it doesn’t contain ambiguous language or filler words.

Now even after you have done the first step, there is a second thing to keep in mind.

Research shows that on average, people read only about 20% of the text that is on a page. This percentage increases as the number of texts decreases

This means, you need to ensure you don’t add a lot of text on your website. You cannot have walls of text on your website. Most people are not going to read it and it’s going to be a terrible user experience for them.

Keep it short, succinct and relevant to the user so you convey what they need to know even if they skim through the page.

  1. Testimonials

Testimonials are important because nothing creates credibility and trust more than the words of your peers.

It is the ultimate social proof. I can tell you from personal experience that the moment I started getting good quality testimonials it was infinitely easier for me to get clients.

Good testimonials are very specific and very clearly convey how you helped them achieve their goals.

You can even go one step beyond and get video testimonials.

According to a study, 2 out of 3 people say they’d be more likely to make a purchase after watching a testimonial video demonstrating how a business, product, or service had helped another person like them

  1. Legal Aspects

Following the advent of GDPR (which stands for General Data Protection Regulation) and other laws related to privacy, it has become essential for any website owner to stay on the right side of the law.

Not doing so can result in heavy fines and penalties.

It’s reported that since its enforcement in 2018, European authorities have imposed EUR 114 million ($126 million) in fines in the first 2.5 years.

And it is predicted that the frequency and amount of fines is going to keep increasing.

Most countries already have strict rules in their information security and cyber law, which include guidelines around privacy. And those that currently don’t are gearing towards it.

Legally speaking, the following are the important:

  1. Privacy policy
  2. Cookie policy
  3. Cookie Consent
  4. Terms and Conditions
  5. Refund Policy
  6. Copyright Notice

You must ensure these are appropriately implemented and up to date.

Note: The opinions expressed here should not be taken as legal advice. The laws and policies for different places and companies are unique and often complex. Ensure you get qualified legal counsel to address all the above points for your jurisdiction.

  1. Reflect your Personality

When people connect with a business, especially for a business like coaching, they want to know who is the person behind it.

Clients will connect better when they see the face behind the business and this human connection helps you build trust with your clients. 

Your website should highlight you and get the visitor to feel like they know you and relate with you.

That doesn’t mean just go on about yourself. But give them an opportunity to find out more about you in your “About” section or page.

Effectively communicate your journey so that people who read it can connect with your story.

Technical Aspects

  1. SSL Certificate

HTTPs is that small lock sign you see on the left of your website address.


This basically is the technology which ensures no hackers or any third party can spy on your users’ interaction with your website.

In today’s age, it’s become a necessity to have this set up properly. It’s better for users, and better for you to show up on Google and get discovered.

On the contrary, if you don’t have it set up or set up correctly, visitors actually end up seeing a very scary warning which will make them want to leave your website immediately.


  1. Mobile Optimization

Having a mobile optimized website basically means that your website looks and functions well when people visit it from a mobile phone and provides an optimal user experience on small screens.

Desktop computers are no longer the primary way people use the internet.

More than 50% of the internet traffic comes from mobile phones and this trend is here to stay

If your website is not mobile optimized, you are immediately alienating over half of the people who are discovering you.

  1. Speed

According to studies, 40% of users abandon a website that takes more than 3 seconds to load

Beyond that, you lose 7% of users for every second your website takes to load.

Google has been using the speed at which a website loads as a ranking factor to determine where your website shows up in google search results since 2010.


So you need to ensure your website is blazing fast.

You never know when inspiration will strike!

I know that was a long read, so here’s a quick refresher summary on the dos and don’ts when it comes to creating your own coaching website. 

27 Best Life Coach Websites + Coaching Website Blueprint

DOs

  1. Do share photos and stories of yourself – this makes you come across as relatable, and inspires comfort & confidence
  1. Do include something for free – it can be a simple toolkit, guide, or planner, for example
  1. Do consider posting a short explainer video on your homepage – video content is automatically more engaging
  1. Do be clear & concise when you are explaining the benefits of your program – people like to see what they’re getting
  1. Do avoid clutter when you list out your programs – clear offerings reflect clarity of thought
  1. Do keep in mind that nobody likes a hard-sell – avoid too many CTAs across your website

For more tips on getting your marketing right, read this detailed guide.

DON’Ts

  1. Don’t get stuck on perfection.

“Perfectionism is a lost cause. Focus your energy on being the best you can be.”
– Domonique Bertolucci

I have seen a lot of coaches getting stuck on trying to get everything on their website perfect. 

The perfect design, the perfect colours, the perfect logo, text, marketing video, etc.

You don’t need a perfect website, you need an effective one

  1. Don’t forget to check all the linked pages. Do a customer journey run through. Make sure all the buttons are working
  1. Don’t leave faulty media on your website. Make sure the images load and the videos play
  1. Don’t mix up social media icons. I came across a very popular website that posted its Instagram handle under Twitter’s logo
  1. Don’t have inactive CTAs or lead forms, it’s what website nightmares are made of. Imagine running ads and spending a bunch of money but getting no leads.
  1. Don’t forget to proofread. Content riddled with grammar and spelling errors is a big NO-NO.
  1. Don’t forget to place your logo on the website’s favicon. Favicons are the tiny logos on a browser’s tab. If you’re using a platform like WordPress to develop your website, it will use the WordPress favicon by default.
  1. Don’t use too many different fonts. It’s distracting and does nothing for aesthetics.
