In the US alone, the personal and professional coaching industry is worth an estimated 9.9 billion dollars. Whether your coaching business pertains to personal growth, business improvement, leadership development, or fitness and nutrition training – just to name a few – it’s obvious that the coaching business is here to stay and will only grow into the future. Your own coaching business may be experiencing growth too, leaving you looking at your possible next steps to improve your process and create room for expansion.
Maybe it’s getting tougher to supply the content that you want to through the current off-the-shelf software or platform you’ve been using. Maybe you want your training to more accurately represent your brand, but you haven’t found a customizable way to do this yet. Or maybe you just want to stand out with your own unique platform. All of these things can happen with custom software.
Why Your Coaching Business Needs Custom Software
Teach your methodology, your way!
Your content and the way you teach it is unique to your coaching business. If the way you coach/teach clients is anything more complicated than self-directed consumption of text, videos, and exercises done alone, you will have trouble using off-the-shelf software to represent your style. Custom software and applications allow you to create more than a tool, but an actual experience that your clients and students can walk through that is just like the methodology you’re teaching.
Fully represent your personal brand with a custom platform.
While many systems make it possible to customize color, layout, and some other styling options, you’re still constrained to the dimensions of the platform provider. Those constraints are gone with custom software.
With a custom application, from the moment a client or student logs into your platform, they can be immediately immersed in your brand. This draws them into the content and creates more engagement with the methodology you’re working so hard to teach.
Stand out from the crowd!
Custom software can not only help you teach the way you want to teach, but it can also end up with your students having a better experience. The word of mouth and referrals from this will help your business grow. A custom platform can be a great way to set your business apart and be a key differentiator to bring in new clients.
Completely customize the experience for your clients or students.
Even within a given cohort or session, you might need to offer different options for different people to better meet their needs. With off-the-shelf software or platforms, you may be limited in the number of sessions or types of workshops you can offer. With something tailored for your coaching business, you’ll be able to offer as many courses, classes, and sessions as you want, better meeting your clients’ needs.
Become more efficient.
As your coaching business grows, you’ll need to handle more students, associate instructors, and training programs. Without custom software, you’ll eventually become a bottleneck. Creating a custom platform will allow you to scale your coaching business and grow more efficiently.
