Best Practices for Your Health Coaching Websites
If you want your website to effectively showcase your services and turn potential clients into actual clients, it should be both dynamic and informative.
Here’s a list of all the things a great Health Coach website will feature:
- Helpful information about the health and wellness programs you offer, your experience and personal story, and, above all, what sets you apart from other coaches.
- A blog that offers engaging content and resources for current and prospective clients alike.
- Your personality! Don’t be afraid to share pictures and stories about everything that makes you YOU! This is your chance to connect with people on a personal level and let them see your passion.
- Strong Calls to Action (or CTAs, as they’re referred to in marketing speak!). You want to make sure that anyone who visits your site knows right away what to do next, whether that’s booking a consultation, downloading free content, or emailing for more information. Be sure to include buttons and links on every page (and even more than once on each page) asking your visitors to take a desired action.
- Great design. A good website design is clean, visually appealing, and is easy to navigate. Use complementary colors that align with your brand…but don’t make the visuals too overwhelming. You want to be sure your content shines through!
- Chances to connect. Along with clear CTAs, you’ll want to make sure your website lets visitors know how to reach you via email, phone, and your social channels.
- Free content. Free content is a great way to capture email addresses for your list, as well as an excellent opportunity to showcase your expertise. Free content can take the form of an e-book, infographics, downloads, podcasts, videos, etc.

#18. Megan Wilcox
Megan Wilcox’s Bold Habit Quest is another great example of incorporating your teaching theme throughout your entire website. The top of her page states exactly the type of coach she is—a wellness coach for gamers—and the information on her page is designed almost like a guide for a video game.
