Putting up a minimal website.It’s for people who DON’T know you can find you, book consults, and get on your email list.
DISCLAIMER: Grow Your Online Nutrition Coaching Business LEGALLY and ETHICALLY
I do want to make a disclaimer! You should make yourself aware of local regulations and laws in terms of what type of nutrition advice you can and can’t give depending on the license or certifications you currently hold.
Seriously, if you do not have a formal education in nutrition, or even a basic certification, that is your first step to creating an online nutrition coaching business.
Reading books, listening to podcasts, and following influencers is respectable. However, it does not make you a nutrition expert nor does not qualify you to coach other people. It only means that you can repeat information you’ve heard someone else say.
Make sure you develop at least a basic understanding of the science of nutrition, how the body works, and how food affects the way the body works before working with clients. Giving nutrition advice might seem harmless, but I have had loads of people who we’ve had to fix after an unqualified person gave them misguided nutrition advice.
3 Basic Foundations for Building Your Online Nutrition Coaching Business
Automating client billing
So, the first foundational piece of starting a nutrition business online is to set up a system for taking payments from your clients online.
Automating your billing will save you a lot of time and hassle by:
Not requiring you to invoice every client at every interval;
Makes it easier for you to track who has paid and who hasn’t, and
Assisting you in collections, if needed.
Currently, I now use Stripe, but do your research to figure out which payment processor works best for you. For you, it could be your local bank or credit union, an online bank big or small online payment processor. Check out their features for reporting, storing information and how they pay out the funds you’ve collected.
Organizing and Storing Client Data
Next, we will focus on when building an online nutrition coaching business is on your systems for collecting and storing client data. Your systems will help you:
Look professional, especially if you are charging a premium for your coaching;
Make it easy for your client to check in and input their check in data and
Reduce the amount of time it takes you to access and use your client’s check in data.
Putting Up a Minimal Website
Finally, the last thing you need to do to build the foundation for your online coaching business is to set up a basic website. This helps people who don’t know who you are validate you. They heard about you from a friend and now they want to know more and see that you are who their friend says you are. Be sure to include these key features on your website. Remember, people viewing your website want to know more about you, that you are qualified to help them and that you are reachable.
You’ve helped people like them make transformations;
That you have a philosophy for coaching that they resonate with and
There is a a place where they can book an appointment with you.
