Start your Life Coaching Business and Broadcast your Live Sessions in 2021
Just about anyone has an idea or a vision of who they would like to become and what they want to achieve. An astronaut, an artist, or a CEO. So are you currently working on this dream or is it somewhere at the back of your mind- keeping you up at night? Maybe you need a coach. Not the fitness type, the life type. A life-coach or a wellness-coach pushes their clients towards achieving their life goals similar to how a basketball coach trains his NBA players towards winning a championship. Depending on the aspect of your life you are trying to change, there is a coach for careers, relationships, and even health. Here is why you should start a life coaching business
“According to The Coaching Tools Company, 80% of clients improved their self-confidence. 73% of clients improved their relationships. 72% of clients improved their communication skills. 67% of clients improved their work-life balance when working with a life coach.”
There are life-coaching seminars that happen all over the world all the time. However, if we’re being honest with ourselves, people who wish to seek out career help, for instance, barely have time to achieve their career goals. Attending in-person weekly seminars often becomes a hassle and after a few weeks, the whole process becomes counterproductive. In-person meetings do not take into account the time required to get ready, driving to the location, getting stuck in traffic, and then remembering you left something at home. From the comfort of your own home, you can now stream your favorite life-coach. To life-coaches out there, we see you, we hear you, and today, we provide to you our streaming solution.
WpStream provides you with a platform to start a life coaching business by live streaming, creating Video-on-Demand, and Pay-Per-View classes. With an affordable and user-friendly experience, life coach entrepreneurs are able to display their skills and talents. Each subscription plan is carefully set up and your business will have an ideal plan calculated based on your life-coaching streaming needs.
WpStream can be used on any WordPress website and it is possible to stream using specialized RTMP broadcast software such as OBS, WireCast, vMix, Zoom, etc. To guide you, we have numerous video tutorials on our YouTube channel. You can choose to monetize your life-coaching sessions or offer them for free using WooCommerce.
Mainstream Free Streaming Platforms
Free live streaming has grown significantly the past few months. While highly useful and effective in streaming (in their own ways), users have limited options and flexibility when it comes to monetization and content creation. YouTube, Facebook, and Instagram are some of the most popular amongst all the platforms that offer streaming services and may help you start a life coaching business. However…
Although Facebook’s data privacy has been enhanced and the data they currently collect is being used for marketing and for regulating your algorithm, that may not be something that you are interested in.
Moreover, most live-streamers want more than just YouTube’s ad revenue monetization model. Ads can be repetitive and annoying to your viewers. Your content is also being monitored by automated bots and could be flagged for copyright issues or spam for no reason whatsoever. Until you get in contact with someone to fix your issue, it may be days, weeks, or even months before you hear back.
On Instagram, your online activity is tracked and you cannot add a live-stream to your own website. Lastly, these platforms usually don’t allow you to create VODs and full-on playlists with your content.
No 3rd Party Streaming
You have full ownership and control over your live-streams and VODs. We offer tight encryption and provide privacy and data security in a highly critical time for this. You can add your live-stream directly to your WordPress life-coaching website without 3rd Party platforms.
With just basic WordPress knowledge and by watching one or two of our YouTube video tutorials, you are set to start your life coaching sessions. We provide support at every step of the way to all our customers. So if anything comes about, do not hesitate to contact us.
WordPress theme available for free
Access to the WpStream theme is free and you can build your own website using a series of different templates made available to you as a treat from us.
Hollywood Demo & GoLive Demo
If you would like to know how your life-coaching streaming website could potentially look like, see Hollywood Demo & GoLive Demo. You can build your streaming website similar to popular streaming websites Twitch and Netflix.
Add the live-stream/VOD to your website
If you want to add the live-stream to your WordPress Pages/Posts, you can do so using the ‘WpStream Player’ block by just adding the Product ID of your live-channel or VOD. Alternatively, you can manually enter a shortcode and it will appear on your website.
WpStream could be used by big businesses as well as up-and-coming entrepreneurs. With plans starting at as low as $19, you can find the right plan at a convenient price.
RTMP is one of the most popular ways to stream, used by Facebook Live and YouTube. Broadcasters such as OBS, Wirecast, vMix, and Zoom include RTMP as their input option which can be used to live-stream content to your website. Simply insert a username and a stream key. See here for more information on how to set up a live-stream.
According to your content type, you have the opportunity to monetize your videos or offer your content for free.
If you have multiple ideas in mind and don’t know what you want to stream, why choose? You are able to set up multiple channels and run them at the same time. These channels run 24/7 and keep your viewers informed at any time.
- Customize your live streams
You can customize your live-streams, logos, and other graphics that would have otherwise not been possible with free streaming websites.
You can offer your live-streams and VODs for free to your viewers. You can gain valuable viewers by initially offering them free videos. Later on, they would be willing to pay for more content should you choose to monetize it. You can always include ads and sponsored content into your videos and have a revenue stream flowing without having your viewers pay to watch.
Pay-per-view means that your viewers will pay to watch each of your live-streams or VODs. Usually, people prefer to PPV at first and get a feel for your coaching sessions and what resonates with them most. After they make their choices, they will fully commit to monthly payments.
Viewers make monthly payments and have access to all the content on your website. In the long run, it is cheaper for viewers to make monthly payments. However, it is more difficult to get new viewers to subscribe monthly from the beginning. They need some time to discover your content and as a result, commit to monthly payments.
Finally, you always have the option of adding different monetization options to each of your channels. All in all, you can organize your life-coaching sessions as you see fit.
What Life-Coaching Programs can I Stream?
That is up to you to decide as a life-coach i.e. anything you want. Even if your program is not included in the list below, you can still stream it. We simply provide you with the platform to start a life coaching business. While these are just a few examples of the types of topics you can stream for your life-coaching company, there are so many more programs that have been streamed with WpStream.
