Step 4 - Setup Your Payment Processor 

This is the thing that connects your landing page builder to your bank account so you can get paid.

You wanna get paid, right? ;-)

There are two processors that I recommend - Stripe and PayPal.



They both charge roughly the same amount, which is about 2.9% + 30c per transaction.

(I know, it sucks, but you're gonna have to roll with it ..)

Stripe requires a bit more tech knowledge to implement, but in my opinion, the user experience is much higher, which means you'll sell more.

If you want an in-depth breakdown of the two providers, read this.

#3. Too hard? Find a tech guru on Fiverr

Note: Trainer Pulse has 1-click Stripe integration.



The second benefit of using a payment processor is trust: both Stripe & PayPal take security very seriously, which is fantastic.

The internet can be a scary place & using a trusted provider like these increases your online credibility.

Step 5 - Use Online Coaching Software

Online coaching software is not essential for your online coaching to work.

But it is a worthwhile tool to save you time and streamline your coaching processes.

(Remember, we're trying to build a LEVERAGED business model now)

Gary uses Trainer Pulse because it has everything he needs to run his online coaching programs.

In addition to client tracking it has:

  • 1-click payment integration
  • Inbuilt landing page builder
  • Automated weekly client check-ins
  • Automated program delivery

If you've made this far, then you're now ready for the last step.

And I don't say this lightly ..

I've saved the best to last ..

This is when the magic happens ..
