What is a coaching app?

3. Apps to support your clients

Sometimes coaches use apps and platforms to help clients on their journey to stay on track. For example, if you’re a mindfulness coach, you might suggest that your clients download a specific meditation app to help them get started.

Some of the apps I personally use in my business help me:

  • Connect with my students
  • Schedule calls
  • Market my business

So without further ado, let’s talk about some of the best coaching apps you can use today to supercharge your business. 

Disclaimer: I don’t use all of the coaching apps I mention here. Some of them I am recommending because of their reputation and reviews online. If you do want to know which tools I use, take a look at this short video:

Best coaching apps to manage your business

First, let’s talk about apps that help you manage the day-to-day of your business.

Dropbox Sign

I’ve used Dropbox Sign (formerly HelloSign) for years, an e-contract tool for managing your contracts.

With this tool, you’ll send contracts to your clients to sign electronically without having to print contracts or manage them manually.  

Dropbox Sign sends out automated reminders. The comment feature also allows you to discuss terms and update the wording in real time.  

Ultimately, this app helps you get rid of back-and-forth emails and automate contracts.

Pros:

  • Automatically saves your documents in one place
  • Lets you create coaching agreement templates

Cons:

  • Possible glitches when sending bulk contracts

Price: Free for two contracts per month. Other plans from $15 per month.

Google Workspace

Google Workspace is my go-to for creating shareable documents. With the different tools (Google Docs, Google Sheets…), you create Word documents, Excel sheets, and presentations that you can collaboratively edit with other people. 

Pros:

  • The free version includes pretty much all you need 

Cons:

  • The mobile app isn’t as user friendly as the desktop version

Price: Free

Satori App

Screenshot of Satori website

Satori is a coaching program builder. You can create custom proposals, set up automated billing, and share homework assignments in your client portals. If you’re looking to manage several admin tasks in one app, then Satori might be the right tool for you. 

Pros:

  • One-click enrollment allows clients to sign up for your coaching services in half the time
  • Built-in automated scheduling system

Cons:

  • No video calling software for calls, so you still need an app for that 

Price: Free for scheduling only. $15 per month for bookings only. $32 per month for the full suite of tools. 

Coaching.com

Screenshot of coaching.com website

Coaching.com is another all-in-one platform that offers a great mix of tools to support your coaching business on the admin and client engagement side.

This is a flexible platform that you can tailor to the way you work. On the business management side, you can schedule calls, track invoices, and conduct video calls straight from the app. Your clients also have access to client portals with milestone tracking, homework assignments, resource libraries, assessments, and more. 

Pros:

  • Customizable branded client portals

Cons:

  • UX requires a learning curve 

Price: Free for coaches with up to three active clients. The pro version starts at $47 per month. Unlimited clients at $97 per month. 

Best coaching apps to handle client work

These apps help you manage your client relationships, including scheduling calls and communicating with clients.

Calendly

Screenshot of Calendly website

Calendly is an app that helps you book coaching sessions without having to send emails back and forth. I’ve used Calendly since the start of my business and I recommend it to my students and audience. 

The way this tool works is that you send a link to your Calendly account, and your clients or potential clients can choose a time that works for them. 

And by integrating Zoom or Google Meet, Calendly automatically adds a call link to the invite. Plus, Calendly sends out reminders when your session is coming up. 

The free version is enough, but you can upgrade for more benefits (for example, to have access to integrations). With the pro version, you can accept payments and integrate more of your calendars.

Pros:

  • Have your calendar automatically updated in different time zones
  • Send automatic meeting notifications

Cons:

  • Calendar integrations are glitchy at times 

Price: Free version available. Pro version from $8 per month.

10 to 8

10 to 8 is an appointment scheduling tool that allows you to automate your booking process. Whether you want to book free consultations or paid services, 10 to 8 has a secure customizable booking app. Your available times will appear in your clients’ time zone. 

The app can also be used for team activities. 

Pros:

  • Good for teams
  • Branded booking pages

  • All of the integrations take time to set up

Clients can share updates, track client progress, and ask you questions instantly with this free app. It’s end-to-end encrypted so everything you share is protected. 

Voxer is also great if you run group programs. You can have up to 500 group coaching clients in a group chat and control who speaks. So it could be a private community space where clients can talk to each other, or you can send one-way messages as part of your coaching to the group.

With Voxer, you can send texts, voice notes, photos, videos, and documents.

Pros:

  • Desktop version for flexibility
  • Up to 500 people in a group chat for free

Screenshot of Nudge website

Ever wanted to build your own app tailored to your clients’ needs? Nudge may be the answer. You see, Nudge is an app builder made for coaches to create custom interactive coaching programs. 

How does it work? Using content cards, you plug in the core modules of your coaching program. The app will automate the content delivery so your clients can go through the program with minimal input from you. But if your clients have any questions, they can reach you instantly with the in-app messaging feature. 

Nudge is ideal for coaches with group coaching programs or course offers. 

Pros:

  • Instant messaging between you and your clients
  • The app can be used to create custom signature coaching programs in the app for one or more clients

How do you choose the right coaching app for your business?

We’ve covered a lot of coaching apps! So how do you know which is right for you? Figure out:

What are your needs? 

First, set up apps that are “no brainers” – AKA that your coaching business absolutely needs. For example, automate your contracts and scheduling with tools like Dropbox Sign and Calendly. 

Then, look at how you want to organize the rest of your coaching business. Do you want to use Google Workspaces for document sharing? (There are other options, too, like Dropbox.)

Remember that apps are just a way to support your business to make certain processes easier – you’ll still need to build it. 

All in one? Or multiple tools?

The next question to answer is: Do you want an all-in-one tool or multiple coaching tools

I personally don’t use all-in-one tools because I’d rather use specialized tools that tend to come with more customization options and features. Overall, my advice is to go for the simplest option for you – and not put too much energy on choosing the right tools. After all, the main focus for new coaches should be on getting new clients. 

Over to you!

There you have it! Now you know the best coaching apps to manage your business, support your clients, and market your business. 

But finding the right tools for your coaching business is just the first step.

You also need the right strategy to create a truly sustainable and profitable business.
