Two Hurdles to Jump If You Want a Great Website
Failing to overcome these two challenges can mean the death of your coaching business before it ever gets off the ground. Yipes!
Hurdle 1. Getting the job done.
In a study I ran, I found that:
- 1/3 of websites never launch
- 1/3 took many months to (gulp) years to complete
- 1/3 were built fast
The top reasons for slow progress or failure to launch were:
- difficulty with a designer who didn’t “get” coaching
- struggle to create content
Oddly, the slow-to-build websites were often worse than the fast ones. They were more confusing, messy, and ugly. One coach said, “I cringed at the idea of ever sending anyone to my website.”
But even if you do make it online, you still need to jump fence #2 …
Hurdle 2. Generating leads with your site.
The scary thing I discovered was that 90% of the websites that did go online, never brought a single new client. Yipes!
Why is it so tough to get a website to bring you leads? If found these to be big culprits:
- They were hard to use
- They were difficult to read
- They did not speak to the interests of the visitor
Such websites do not engage visitors and do not inspire them to take action and call you.
It’s a tough nut to swallow when your website doesn’t work.
I’ve seen coaches spend six months or more to get online. I’ve seen them spend thousands of dollars along the way.
I’ll see coaches stick with their website far too long because they don’t want to admit failure and feel wasteful.
I’ve seen them give up on their dreams because it wasn’t working out.
I hope that doesn’t happen to you.
I want your website project to be a success. Which goes like this …
You and I are working closely together with regular contact by email and phone calls.
We’ve taken the time to craft a powerful message that’s focused on your ideal client.
We’re and cruising along at a smooth place to our chosen launch date.
We enjoy a few laughs along the way.
Your website goes live, clients love it, and you’re eager to start sharing it with the world.
If that sounds good to you, then fill out the form below and we’ll talk further.
The Kinds of Clients I Work With
I work with business, career, leadership, and executive coaches who have lots of work experience, wisdom and heart that they want to deliver as a professional coach.
The coaches I work with want to build their credibility as a coach and setup a simple yet powerful to attract their ideal client.
My clients are diligent, value good communication, and love productive collaboration. Having fun while they work is big plus too 😉
What clients say …
Kenn was very systematic in taking me through creating content, visuals and the website. And not only is he great at extracting information to make a site reflect me and my strengths, he asked questions about where my business is going … And all of this Kenn reflected in the site. That’s a very valuable (and rare) skill. Thank you Kenn.

Kenn note: In this project we did nearly all of the project by email due to busy schedules. It’s WordPress based with email list, blog, freebie, course, social networks, search engines and compelling invite to generate new client leads.

I liked walking through the process of sending out my first email so that was very helpful. I’m still happily swimming in all this. (Kenn note: In this website we setup an email-list capture system to primarily grow Phil’s list and nurture relationships by email.)

Kenn, the greatest gift for me working with you has undoubtedly been that you just handle it – superbly. Websites are an area I am not knowledgeable about, so to be able to just hand over to you and know that my project is in expert hands and is happening, is priceless.

How We Work Together
I am your web designer and my job is a smooth fun journey to creating a website you’ll love to share with the world.
You’ll get my best advice from years of work online for creating content that sells and a website that brings you leads.
I’ll give you a web design package for a simple outline of what we’ll do, how we’ll do it and my fee.
We begin with a Kick-off Call to develop content. Beforehand, you’ll get a bunch of questions to get a jump start.
We aim for focused efforts of 4 weeks to get your website up and running, and adjust based on our schedules.
We are in touch daily by email, with plenty of calls to facilitate a smooth, productive project.
The basic process is Brainstorm -> Content -> Visuals -> Build -> Test -> Launch.
We end with a Launch Call where we will bring you website online, celebrate and discuss your next steps.
I work with 1-2 clients at a time and if I’m booked, then we look at the coming months ahead.
To see if we’re a fit, just take the next step below and well talk about creating a credible, professional website for you.
Two Things I Hold Near and Dear to My Heart as I Build Websites for Coaches
Design to attract
I’ve found the websites that educate, inspire, and excite people (attract them) work better than websites that try to either (a) explain how coaching works OR (b) websites that are overly salesy.
And so, this question guides me: Will this (idea, image, wording, functionality) authentically encourage the website visitor to take action that leads them to contacting you for coaching?
Keep it simple
If your website is hard to use, people won’t use it. Patience is very low online and things need to be super easy. I’ve adopted a less-is-more approach to design, sticking to the stuff that works and avoiding debatable ideas.

A Little About Me
I’ve been on computers since age 8 (back in the 80s). I left a very comfy Actuary job in 2001 to pursue my passions of creating engaging experiences on computers. That took the form of a web designer. Since 2006, I’ve specialized create professional websites that build your image and generate new client leads. Did I mention I like grass-fed burgers on salads?
