What features do I REALLY need?

What features do I REALLY need, Brandi? I just want a website to sell my coaching program and courses! It all seems SOOOOO hard!!!!!

That will actually depend on you, your business, and which phase of business you’re currently in. It’s hard to answer without knowing what is going on.

These are the most basic of needs. This list is super simple and only takes a couple of hours to knock out.  The “hardest” part is being picky about the colors and photos on your front page. 🙂

A basic website consists of:

  • A home page
  • A list of your products and/or services
  • About me page
  • Mission statement
  • Contact us page
  • Accounting system to keep track of your business finances (and not paying for Quickbooks, etc)
  • Standard policies:
      • Privacy policy
      • Cookie policy
      • Returns and refunds policy (required by several payment processors)
      • Disclaimer (not providing medical advice, no guarantees, etc)
      • Terms and Conditions

Depending on your business, you MAY be ready for:

  • Online booking system for your clients to book free or paid appts with you
  • A marketing suite with landing pages, calls to action, emails, lead management system, automations
  • Client/contact relationship manager
  • Copyright protection
  • Memberships
  • Subscriptions
  • Payment plans
  • Live chat
  • E-commerce store for physical and digital products & services
  • Affiliate system to encourage your customers to promote your products and services
  • Online course system
  • Legally binding e-signatures for your contracts
  • Social media auto-posting/scheduling
  • SEO
  • And so much more

For most people, you just want the thing to work, without any tech craziness. You just want the pieces you need so you can launch and live your purpose!! We’re going to show it to you in stages so you don’t have to do anything you’re not yet ready for!
