Whether you’re doing life coaching, career coaching or something in between, you’ve probably run into this problem as your business grows: Keeping track of your clients and providing a personalized experience for each one is becoming increasingly difficult.
Online coaching platforms are built to streamline your business processes and help you provide the best possible results for your clients. But not all coaching software is created equal. While some excel at helping you with the administrative side of your business, it’s tough to find a tool that helps you with the most important piece: providing effective coaching.
If you’re interested in finding out which online coaching platform can show measurable, evidence-based results, read on.
Online coaching platforms exist on a spectrum. They can do anything from client management to payment processing to digital coaching.
Many online coaching platforms focus mainly on the business side of things-invoicing, payment processing, scheduling and the like. Few online coaching platforms have truly mastered enhancing your digital coaching to help your clients get better results.
Phrased another way, you might ask what features you should look for in an online coaching platform. Here are some features or tools to look for:
Fingerprint for Success is an online coaching platform based on 20+ years of research that empowers human coaches to partner with an AI coach-delivering your clients better results.
F4S has developed an evidence-based assessment that is 90% accurate at predicting the 48 motivations that drive human behavior at work. So how can this help you in your coaching practice? The F4S assessment is a highly effective and accurate diagnostic tool that can help you pinpoint cognitive biases or blind spots that hold your client back from achieving their goals. Equipped with this knowledge, you can then go in and provide transformational coaching. Then, AI Coach Marlee can provide performance and developmental coaching. This is a perfect partnership to help you provide better results for your clients.
Beyond that, many coaches choose to embed the F4S technology into high-growth ventures, helping individuals become first-time leaders, onboarding teams and optimizing teams. They can then coach an entire organization, creating a passive income stream through F4S.
F4S is completely free for the assessment and access to certain Coach Marlee programs. With the free plan, you can also view and compare your results with up to five people in a team.
Upgrade to the Pro plan at $9.60/month to be able to have unlimited access to all Coach Marlee programs, view and compare unlimited team members and take the F4S assessment every year to compare your results over time. We also provide an Organization subscription tier at $9.60 per month per user. This grants the additional benefits of an aggregated data dashboard for the organization, Single Sign On (SSO), admin control over data and members and more.
Coaches who become accredited as licensed and certified coaches get permission to take the F4S technology into organizations and embed it as a licensed partner. We’d be happy to walk you through this process if it interests you. Just reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you’re willing to put forth a little upfront effort, Nudge Coach puts the power of personalization in your hands by giving you an easy way to build your own coaching app. This app would be a good fit for coaches who are looking for an alternative to email when it comes to building out their online course or program. While Nudge does not have a native booking feature, you can integrate the app with booking tools, such as Calendly.
Nudge Coach is free for up to five clients. Their Grow plan supports up to 50 clients at $60/month paid monthly. To access features like data exports and multiple accounts, upgrade to Scale, which supports up to 100 clients at $100/month paid monthly. Lastly, you can white label the app starting at $600/month.
Coaching Loft has a pretty robust set of features if you need help with the business side of online coaching, including booking, contracts and invoicing. It does have some features for the actual coaching piece, too, such as assessment templates and a library of more than 500 coaching questions. However, it doesn’t provide any premade coaching programs for your clients to participate in.
Coaching Loft has a free membership for up to two clients. To access premium features such as appointment scheduling pages, agreements, invoices and rating & feedback, upgrade to the Core membership for $20/month. There are three paid tiers available, and all come with a free 14-day trial.
Founded by two gym owners in 2015, Coach Catalyst was created out of their struggle to scale their business while maintaining a personal touch with each client. They created Coach Catalyst to help coaches everywhere improve client results by making it easier to scale.
Though its website says it’s for life and business coaches, too, Coach Catalyst’s main user base has been built upon gym owners and health and fitness coaches, so that seems to be where its strength lies. It also has a mobile app, MyCoach, that helps clients with accountability by checking in on whether they’ve completed healthy habits.
Coach Catalyst's pricing depends on how many clients you have on their platform. Pricing starts at $39/month for up to 12 clients. There is a free 14-day trial that gives you full access to all of the features without asking for your credit card info.
Where Paperbell shines is taking care of the business/admin parts of being a coach. It allows you to create coaching packages that your clients can purchase online, set your availability for easy booking and see all your client data in one place.
However, Paperbell doesn’t have assessments, metrics or a place to track client goals beyond private notes you can add to each client. This software has an excellent free trial deal: 100% of the features are totally free up until you get your second client.
Paperbell offers a free account that has 100% of the features without requiring you to enter credit card details. There is no time limit on the free account. It's free for your first client, and after that first client, you will be asked to upgrade. The plan is $50/month billed monthly, and it is for unlimited clients, packages and contracts.
Profi strives to be the all-in-one solution for running your coaching business and offering services. True to that goal, it’s the only online coaching platform on this list that has built-in video conferencing capabilities. It also has a convenient toggle that lets you easily switch between the admin view and the client view, so you know exactly what your coachees see in their Profi account.
Profi offers a 30-day free trial for solo businesses. Solo plans start at $59/month billed monthly for up to 25 active clients.
Simply.Coach combines business management tools such as contracts and invoicing with digital coaching tools that include premade templates like:
Beyond client management, Simply.Coach also has features to help you with marketing and sales for your online coaching business.
Simply.Coach offers a 14-day free trial. Paid plans for independent coaches start at $19/month billed monthly.
As a coach, you have developed a unique method of providing results for your clients. But by adding a layer of science-backed technology and assessments on top of your existing expertise, you can create a truly transformative experience for every coachee.
