Being an online life coach is satisfying and fulfilling but at the same time, it can be as frustrating as trying to get your two-year old to eat that broccoli!!
… the life coaching part, you’ve got that nailed.
But what about everything else that comes along with it?
The everyday admin-y stuff that makes you want to curl into a ball in a corner and cry your eyes out.
The geeky, techy stuff that makes you regret your decision not to date the class nerd in college.
The complicated creative stuff that makes you want to poke yourself in the eye with toothpicks. Ouch!!
Yes, all of that.
I know that this is how you feel because I’ve worked with hundreds of coaches, just like you.
Sure, this article may have “life coach” in the title, but it really is for any sort of coach – health and wellness, productivity, mindset, really any coach.
Because with your work, come challenges that are unique to coaching.
How can you overcome those challenges?
No, you don’t have to pledge your firstborn to me. Or lose your mind in the process. Can I hear that sigh of relief? Yeah!!
On that note, let’s dive right into the 5 incredibly powerful, business-building systems that your coaching business needs right away!
5 Must-Have Business Building Systems for an Online Life Coach
1. Automate New Client Intake System
You don’t need to spend sleepless nights tossing and turning wondering how to capture the interest of people who visit your website. You no longer have to wonder what “magic wand” you need so you can have an endless stream of discovery calls all waiting for you.
All you need, mon cheri, is an automated client intake system. A system that you can pretty much set and forget, and it continues to do it’s magic.
An automated client intake system will vary from coach to coach but for the most part it would consist of an opt-in or lead magnet that a visitor to your site would sign up for, then, they’d be lovingly guided through an automated email sequence showcasing why they need YOU in their lives and next, they’d get the opportunity to sign up for a discovery call with you.
No more losing sleep over losing discovery calls.
No more stressing over how to stay connected with visitors to your site.
All you need is an email marketing system like, Ontraport, Infusionsoft, Aweber or ConvertKit.
2. Stress-free Appointment Scheduling System
The next powerful system that every business or online life coach needs is an automated appointment scheduling system.
It’s pretty simple, really.
A prospective client lands on your site and you throw the virtual door open, invite them in for coffee and a chat, all automatically.
An appointment scheduling system that’s integrated into your website is a must-have.
Why, you ask? Especially if you have the automated client intake system?
Because what if someone doesn’t want to sign up? What if they only want to chat with you to see if you’re a good fit? You don’t want to send them off, right? I thought so.
So, an automated appointment scheduler is a must if you want to double or even, triple the number of discovery calls you book in a month.
3. Keep in Touch Newsletter System
So, now that you have automated engaging with new visitors to your website and connecting with them via discovery calls, how do you continue staying in touch with them with ease?

You can share with them actionable advice, exclusive specials and other practical insights that would continue to nurture their connection with you!
All you need to do is write it up, plug it in and voila, it gets sent out automatically!

Struggling to keep on top of social media? Stressed out over all the networks you have to be on all the time?
You can kiss that stress goodbye with a social media scheduling tool, like Buffer or Hootsuite. Add your social media content to it, set it and it’ll post for you… you guessed it, automatically!
5. Get Paid Payment System
Finally, how does one get paid for one’s awesome coaching services?
