14 Health Coach Websites For Inspiration

Whenever I start a new website project for a health coaching client, there is always that moment when they ask “are there any websites you recommend for me to look for inspiration?”.

It is normal for us to want to see what other professionals in the health coaching industry are doing, and to take note of which elements we want to add to our business, and which ones we know do not resinate with us

So, to make this easier on everyone, I took upon myself to search through the entire internet universe (or a least a couple hours worth of searching) to find 14 health coaching websites that I believe can offer some valuable inspiration for you when you start brainstorming your own website design needs.

14 inspirational websites.jpg

I decided to only include in this list websites of other health coaches that offer coaching services on their websites, instead of just having a blog.

Carefully look through this list for inspiration, keeping notes of specific things that you like AND dislike. It is not only important to know what you want to include on your website, but to also communicate to your designer what you absolutely do not want as well.

Inspirational elements to look for:

 
  • Color palettes

  • Photo style

  • Fonts

  • Website structure

  • Number of pages and their titles

  • Copywriting

  • Services & freebies offered

  • Domain name

Remember that the goal is to use these as inspiration only, and through this brainstorming to develop your own unique style that differentiates you from other professionals.

How To Customize Your ConvertKit Form's Success Message Colors

Fam, you might have heard me mention on Instagram that I recently made the change from Mailchimp to ConvertKit. And while the reasons for my change are so many that I will have to write a blog post just for it, I have been learning some things about ConvertKit that I think you might be wondering about too.

I am writing this blog for those of you who have been using ConvertKit and are still figuring it all out (just like me!). And while everything seems very intuitive and easy to use after the initial moment of “I have to learn ConvertKit’s lingo before anything”, you kinda fall in love with it.

However, the one thing that I could not change while creating forms on ConvertKit to add to my website for people to subscribe to my newsletter, was the weird green background that pop-ups with the “success message” after the person signs up. Let me show you.

So here is an example of a form I added in a blog post so my readers can subscribe to my newsletter and get a free copy of my ebook.

Once the reader enters their first name and emailed and pressed “Download your guide”, here is how my “success message” appeared:

That green colors is so out of place and it does not match with my website at all! You agree with me right?

I searched within ConvertKit and on Google for a way to change it, but I had no luck. So I emailed ConvertKit for help, and let me tell you, they have an AMAZING customer service! They got back to me within 24 hrs with the solution, which is a simple custom CSS that I needed to add to the CSS editing section of the form building window in ConvertKit.

Here is how it looks now:

I made this super quick 4 minutes video so you can change your forms too! No more weird green for us, thank goodness!

How To Create a Handwritten Signature For Your Blog And Add It To Your Squarespace Website

How To Create a Handwritten Signature For Your Blog And Add It To Your Squarespace Website

An easy and quick way to create a signature for your blogposts in your own handwriting using Photoshop, and how to add it to your Squarespace blog posts. (Video tutorial included)

80% of Your Readers Won't Finish Reading Your Blog Posts. Here are 10 Ways To Change That

According to Sumo's June 2018 analytical research, only 20% of your readers will finish reading your blog posts. ONLY 20%! Now, that doesn't sound like much does it?

Especially when you spent an entire day researching about the topic, writing and rewriting your blog, spell checking 20 times, gathering the right images to go with the text. You put A LOT of effort and sweat into your blogs, I am sure you want your audience reading until the end (At least I do!)

However, not all is lost!! Here are 10 tips and tricks you can start using today to change these statistics. 

Moo's business cards.jpg

1. Your audience is scanning your content instead of reading it

Most of your readers are scanning through your blog posts instead of reading word by word. That is just the truth. And let's be honest, we all do it, don't we?! Unless it is a topic they are highly interested in, the chances are that they are scrolling down the page, reading your headlines and photos to get the overall sense of your article. 

But don't be upset. Knowing this is an advantage! How can you make the key points of your article be understood just by scanning through your blog post? We will discuss those elements below. But always keep this important fact in mind when writing content for your blog.

2. Highlight the main concept with headlines and photos/images

Throughout your blog, you should be breaking up the text with headlines for 2 main reasons:

  1. When your reader scans through the article, the headlines are what catches the most attention. Make them count! Can you write your headlines in a way that makes your reader want to read more?

  2. Headlines help your SEO. Google will scan the headlines on your blog posts and match it with searches done by users. So make them relevant to your text so your blog posts can be more easily found through search engines.

Similar to headlines, photos capture people's attention when they browse through your content. Use photos, graphs, gifs, videos, ... any content that will enhance your blog post and make the reader want to know more (but remember to ALWAYS keep it relevant to what you are writing about).

SQUARESPACE TIP: if you are using Squarespace for your website, only headlines 1 and 2 will be seen by search engines and used for SEO.

3. Include lots of white space in your blog

This must be one of my favorite tips. I love white spaces (may it be in my blog posts, in my house decor, in my notebook notes).

White spaces give the eye a chance to breathe. Reading long pieces of content on the computer/cellphone can be overwhelming and hurt our vision. To create white space in blog posts:

  • Break up your content with headlines and images

  • When using images, add an extra line of breathing room between the photo and the next paragraph

  • Make the line weight 1.5+

  • Have an empty margin on both sides of your page

  • Have a clear division between your written content and your blog's sidebar

  • Prevent the sidebar from becoming too crowded and overpowering the article (choose smaller images and fonts)

4. Break up the content with bullets and subheadings 

Readers are easily discouraged when they see a big chunk of plain text they have to read. They are most likely to skip on your article, even if you are telling them the key to eternal life. 

Breaking up your text into headlines, subheadlines, and bullet points make the text easier to scan through and much less intimidating (plus it adds more white space). Whenever you can transform one long paragraph into five shorter bullets points, you are in for a better reader retention. 

5. Use all-caps and bolding when appropriate

Since your reader is most likely scanning through your content, you want to have keywords and concepts jump out of the page. So even if they don't read word by word, they are getting the message. 

Using ALL CAPS, bold, and italics, (or all THREE) will do just that. What I like to do is to first write out my blog, and then to go back and select a few works to enhance and make it easier to have my key points come across to my readers. But please, don't go overboard. The key is to be selective and purposeful. If you overuse these magical tricks, they will lose their power. 

6. Keep your lines and paragraphs short

“So the writer who breeds more words than he needs, is making a

chore for the reader who reads.” - Dr. Seuss

If your goal is to increase reader retention through your article, keeping your paragraphs short is key. Aim for 3-5 sentences per paragraph. When it comes to the length of your lines, staying within 50-70 characters per line is a good guideline to follow. Anything longer than that will make it difficult for the reader to keep their spot on the page when reading down from line to line.

Find your happy medium by playing with your website settings: blog page width, letter size, border thickness.

7. Keep the formatting of your blog posts consistent

All of your blog posts should have the same format. You want your readers to become accustomed to your style and to know what to expect. Do you use bold headlines? Do you always include large, gorgeous images of your recipes? Do you always add a thoughtful quote at the end of your posts?

If your readers like your content, they will want more and more of it. Find the signature key elements you always add to your blogs and keep it consistent. 

8. Keep the typeface and colors simple and consistent with your overall brand

Readers are most likely to read through your articles if the design style of your blog is coherent with your brand. For example, if they have been following you on Instagram because they love your photos and captions and your overall Insta feel is "young, vibrant, fresh", and you invite them to read your blog post but the typeface and colors you are using are "dull and heavy", they will most likely not read it. 

Yes, what you write about is SO IMPORTANT, but having the design of your blog match the feel of your brand through all platform is crucial. You are not only selling your content but a brand image.

(Don't let another day go by! Work with me today to create an unique and thoughtful brand and website design for your business!)

9. Test how your blog looks like in different platforms

Depending on the website platform you are using, how your blog looks on the computer screen will translate to a different format when viewed on a tablet or cellphone. It is important to be aware of how your content in translating to these different platforms. When you are done writing your content and before you share it on your social media platforms and newsletters, test how your blog posts look when you read it from your phone or tablet (or even a different computer brand as well).

 

SQUARESPACE TIP: If you are using Squarespace, you have visibility of how your blog will look on diverse devices as you write your article. To do so, first save your content and hover over the small horizontal line at the top of your page. It will bring down a menu with the options for you to see your content through a cell phone, tablet, or computer screen format.

10. Bring your own uniqueness 

Your readers are coming to you not only because they are interested in your writing, but because they like you! When you write, your personality and unique voice come through to the page. 

Don't ever try to sound like someone else, even if this other person seems to be doing better with their blogs. Your own distinct way of writing and sharing what is on your mind makes others connect to you and want to hear more. BE YOU. BE AUTHENTIC. BE UNIQUE. That's your secret weapon that no one can imitate.
