About Coaching Sites That Work

About

Hey, I’m Kenn Schroder. I’m many things but on this website I play a web designer, techie and teacher helping coaches create client-attracting websites. My cool title is web success strategist.

In this photo, I’m on the way to Queenstown in the South Island of New Zealand, a very magical place.

About this website, CoachingSitesThatWork.com.

This website is where I blog about websites for coaches. I get into a lot of stuff like website design, content writing, technology, search engines, blogging, WordPress and more. I’m especially excited about strategy and client-attraction. And some people think I’m funny at times.

What kind of coaches do you work with?

The coaches I work with help people succeed in various areas of life including business, careers, relationships, health and more. They’re all around the globe. If luck would have it, I run into 1% of them in real life during travel. Maybe you’ll be one of them?!

How did you become a web designer for coaches?

I rekindled my childhood passion of creating on computers when I left my comfy corporate job back in 2001. With much trial, toil and tinkering, I’ve been fortunate enough to keep myself fed while doing the work I love and traveling the world. OH, and while working with some awesome people like you 😉

Being human (a tough racket) requires me to get sleep, to have periods of down time, and to turn my brain off now and again. Oh and I have to go have friends, eat food and get exercise. Bummer because I’d rather be creating on computers ;).

    Hi Kenn,
    I’m following you for a while. Today I have burning question and I wonder whether you would help me with an answer.
    I’m an adhd coach in germany. When you look on my website you don’t see any blog or something like that. No content marketing. I don’t have anything what man could really call a funnel. But I want to. I will set up my website from the scratch over christmas (I hope so) and I want to start blogging with tipps for adhd people. I have a video course. I want to have leadmagnets and freemiums and behind that funnels that lead to my coaching.

    BUT: I’m insecure. A coach of mine (she doesn’t know anything about online-marketing, but she is a entrepreneur’s coach) asked me: don’t you decrease the number of coaching clients when you give away your knowledge in video courses? Then the people who hired you by now because they didn’t get any other help won’t have to hire you anymore.

    And she made me insecure.

    I would appreciate your help and your answer, if possible.

    Thanks a lot

    Birgit

    Hi Birgit … you’re pretty courageous in posting your insecurity online. Nice work.

    Insecure? Or do you mean inexperienced? Unsure? A little afraid of the unknown?

    Those are good questions, and I do think it’s important to reach out to people with valuable info but also offer them things they can buy – that is more help.

    And yes, marketing is something to learn as some of it is counter intuitive but helpful to earn money while providing value – and there are people who will happily pay for you to help them overcome challenges.

    You are asking good questions, and I hope taking plenty of action, and I hope getting support – a safe place to take action, in spite of your insecurities. A place where you can grow. A place where others are also insecure or have overcome some of those insecurities because it’s motivating and fun not to be alone.

    I see coaches take action while being a little insecure and then the insecurity sorta just goes away.

    Thanks for commenting. Thank yourself for being brave to speak up here, on my site.

    And I appreciate your trust in me as a source of help for your question.
