Life coaching is becoming a more and more popular career path, especially for experienced professionals. While certifications certainly help new coaches stand out from some of the competition, a website is the most important aspect of your online presence. As a life coach, you now represent your own brand. And you need a website that doesn't simply display your information, but presents it in a way that distinguishes you as a true professional. A custom website enhances your online reputation and brings in new clients.
Life coaches can't be expected to build and host their own websites. There are 'user-friendly' websites that allow anyone to build a custom website. However, these sites offer themes that are commonly used, limited design and functionality options, and are time consuming. Many life coaches waste massive amounts of time trying to configure their own website. Not only can it be challenging, it can be discouraging.
This is one of the most common questions that life coaches ask when they are first getting started. The answer is that either way you are now a brand. Plenty of life coaches want their website to be located at FirstnameLastname.com while others prefer to create a specific company/brand name. The truth is that both options will result in a 'brand name.' Deciding can be complicated and we offer branding consultation to all our clients before proceeding. What are some of the factors that go into a decision? There are many factors, but here are a few. If your name is difficult to spell, or very long, its often better to go with a memorable brand name. This way word-of-mouth traffic will have a better success rate of finding you when they type in your website. Many names are already taken and the .COM extension is no longer available. The .COM extension is the recommended extension for life coaches, so we usually suggest going with a brand. If your name is popular it can be harder to rank in Google for your name, even if you own the .COM domain name. Sometimes there are unsavory results in Google from people with your same name. If these results are very common, it is sometimes a better idea to create a brand name. If this is the case, you may also be interested in our online reputation management services. Sometimes it can be difficult to come up with a unique brand name. Luckily we have a portfolio of life coaching domain names that we registered specifically for new life coaches.
