“As a life coach you are inevitably going to need a website to showcase who you are, how you coach and all those great client testimonials so you can build your business. This is especially so if you are planning to coach nationally or internationally online, rather than just locally.
I chose Solo Build It! to create Life Coaching Professionally and if you want everything you need in a “working” website in an "all in one package" and I strongly recommend it. You can trial it for free and it has a powerful Action Guide for building a business online.
I do realise you can get a basic website up and running for free with Wix, Weeby, Wordpress and so on. But with these platforms, you can end up paying a lot of money for all the plug-ins and additional help you may you need to make the site really work for you. There are many traps to truly getting your website found on the web to avoid, which is why I chose Solo Build It!
If you already own a Wordpress site, I recommend you invest in Solo Build It! for Wordpress. This provides some of the most important features of SBI! including the Action Guide business building education package; a unique keyword brainstorming tool and fabulous free support.
So before you choose a website provider, do take into consideration real cost and usability and include SBI! in your research.
