I’ve collected this list of service and technology resources to help you on your path to a profitable life and a business you love.
It’s taken a lot of time and energy -along with some significant, costly trial & error to put this list together!
I haven’t included every company that I could have on this list.
This is because I only recommend companies that I use and love myself. These are the companies I rely on, and who I trust will provide you with valuable service and support in the long run.
In other words, I’ve spent the time and money to figure out who you should trust. And more importantly, who you shouldn’t.
That said, I have an affiliate relationship with some of the products and companies listed below, so you’ll be getting brownie points from your teacher if you were to use my referral links below. 🙂
And if you do choose to invest in any of these services, make sure to mention my name to ensure you get the best service as a superstar coach… 🙂
WEBSITES FOR COACHES
Easy Coaching Websites
OK, I’m a bit biased here, but my web designer offers the most affordable option for creating your own rockstar blog-style website that I have ever seen! In fact, I’ve seen similar packages for 4 times the cost.
Showcase your brilliance and get top-notch support.
WEBSITE HOSTS – I use KnownHost.com Great prices; great support.
DOMAIN NAMES: GoDaddy – Great prices; great support. You can search online for discount coupons.
TO SEND YOUR NEWSLETTER — One of the best ways to build and monetize your coaching business over the long-term is by building your email list. Email newsletters are an incredibly powerful marketing tool — this is the core of my marketing.
There are dozens of email service providers out there. Here are the ones I recommend.
I use DirectPay.com This is a comprehensive ecommerce solution that lets you start small and grow with your business. You can send newsletters, use autoresponders to send information to people who sign up for your teleclasses, and have clients pay online for your teleclasses and products, etc. If you plan to build a business online, this is the ONLY way to go.
The only thing you need to start is the Autoresponder Package (starts @ $34 per month.) To learn more about their services go here.
Aweber – If you are only going to be sending a newsletter and never plan to offer a product (never say never), then use Aweber. (This link gives you first month free.) They are the industry standard in autoresponders and email marketing. Starts @ $19 per month. Free Resources from Aweber to get you started:
- What To Write In Your Emails (Fill-in-the-blank email templates to make getting started easier.)
- Growing Your Business With Email Marketing – (Free pdf to help build your business.)
Active Campaign is the new kid on the block, but they are gaining popularity fast. Lots of good features.

CREDIT CARD PROCESSORS
Direct Pay delivers personalized, convenient, and affordable credit card, electronic check, and e-commerce processing solutions.
I endorse them because of their integrity and dedication in delivering these business services to professionals and entrepreneurs like us. The difference in using Paypal vs. Direct Pay is that with Direct Pay, you can collect a client’s credit card information and seamlessly bill their credit card.
