Starting an online coaching business is very affordable to start and easy to make a passive income online.

After a couple of years of freelancing, I was starting to get approached by potential clients. Clients wanting me to coach instead of providing the done for you service.

After some thinking like ‘could I really do coaching’, I researched doing online coaching and discovered that if it was something I enjoyed I can make a passive income with online coaching.

Needless to say, I got back to the potential client and created a trial run of doing online coaching.

This really did start to get the word out that I was doing online coaching and built up my confidence at the same time whilst making a passive income online.

Truly enjoying the experience of coaching clients instead, I developed a way of making it a service that I can offer to all potential clients that would want that instead of a done for you service.

If you like the idea of being an online coach but have no idea what to do, here are 3 ideas to get you started.

Each of these ways is affordable to do and sometimes costs nothing except your time and effort.

Email Coaching

A couple of years ago I came across a social media expert called Luan Wise in which I had purchased a social media planner from.

Whilst only intending on buying the planner and maybe follow Luan Wise further, I was emailed extra help with social media.

So how can you adapt this to do email coaching?

Offer a low-cost product such as a book that will solve your client’s problem.

Then on the thank you page offer a low-cost coaching program where you will deliver videos and other sources such as worksheets via email.

Now how could you make this work out for you and earn a passive income from email coaching?

Consider What Your Potential Clients Problem Is

When someones problem is they want to make money online. What their really big problem is struggling to get their ideal customers.

Or they’re struggling to understand what it is they should be doing in order to earn money.

Solve Their Really Big Problem

Research your target markets big problem by doing keyword research and then create a

  • Cheat sheet
  • eBook

One To One Coaching

One to one coaching does not need to be done face to face, but can instead be done online. If one to one coaching is something that would interest you then you need a system to do this. A typical system would involve:

  • A webinar and landing page that would sell your coaching services. Getresponse offers this at $49 a month but with an initial 30-day free trial.
  • Connect to an appointment scheduler. Acuity scheduler is probably one of the best schedulers out there. To get started there is a free option but of course, if you are wanting to remove all of the Acuity branding, the fee is from $15 a month.
  • Link your appointment scheduler to your PayPal account or other payment processor.

As you see, for less than $100 a month you can start your own coaching business. Take on clients one to one when you’re free to do so.

Plus the amount that you can charge per hour is from hundreds and thousands of dollars. All of this whilst you are doing your regular job.

Facebook Groups

There must be consultants and coaches in every niche creating 5-day challenges.

5-day challenge where they solve a problem and end with an offer that is relevant to the challenge.

Popup Facebook groups are being used worldwide. From Amy Porterfield in the US to Carrie Green in the UK.

Creating popup groups with a 5-day challenge for a product they are an affiliate to or sell their own coaching services.

If you want to make a passive income online through coaching and using Facebook groups,

In A Nutshell

It costs absolutely nothing to get started making a passive income online with coaching. All you need is a passion for your expert topic and a desire to help other people.
