The right online community platform is the key to fostering engagement, loyalty, and growth among community members. But with so many options out there, how do you know which features are essential for success and what an ideal exclusive community platform for you look like? Grab a cup of coffee, sit back, and let’s dive into the must-have features of online coaching community.

Before we start, if you’re a coach or community manager, you may know that managing an online community isn’t just about throwing up a forum and hoping for the best. It’s about creating a space where your audience feels connected, valued, and engaged.

This is exactly where Wylo comes in—a community platform specifically designed to cater to the needs of coaches and community builders looking to build and manage amazing communities under their own branding. But what exactly should you be looking for in an online community platform? Let’s break it down, shall we?


Core Features of a Robust Online Community Platform

The most essential and must-need features that a robust online community needs are:

List of various must-have features for a robust online community.


User-Friendly Interface

  • Intuitive Navigation: This is a no-brainer. Your community should be easy to navigate for both you and your members. A clutter-free, intuitive interface ensures that community members can find what they’re looking for without frustration. With Wylo, you might even forget what frustration feels like.


  • Customization Options: Customization is key. And Wylo is the solution. From the color scheme to the layout, the ability to personalize your community platform to match your brand identity is crucial.

    To add on, Wylo allows coaches to run communities with select features, paying only for what they choose. And features can be added or removed at any time. Sounds great, right?


Engaging Content Tools

  • Multimedia Support: Whether it’s videos, images, or embed, the community platform should support various types of content to keep things interesting and engaging. With Wylo, express yourself in any format and let your community thrive with creativity at its best.


  • Content Scheduling: The ability to schedule posts and content in advance can help maintain a consistent presence in your community, even when you’re busy. It’s not a must but still a good add-on!


Robust Communication Features

  • Real-Time Chat:

    Instant messaging capabilities foster real-time interaction, making your community feel more connected. With Wylo, your members are just a message away from forging deeper connections and sparking lively discussions.

    Also, look out for threaded chats and DMs! Because, only DMs won’t do the job for you.


  • Discussion Forums: Forums allow for more in-depth conversations and the sharing of ideas, making them a staple feature for any online community. With Wylo, you can uncover the power of lively discussions and watch your community thrive.


  • Announcements and Notifications: Keeping your community updated with the latest news and updates is essential. Ensure the platform supports easy announcements and automated notifications. Wylo ensures your announcements pop up and notifications meet your members just on time.


Analytics and Insights

  • User Engagement Metrics: Understanding how your members interact with your content can help you tailor your strategy for better engagement. It's like reading their minds, but on a good note and way more fun.


  • Growth Tracking: Ever wish you had a crystal ball for your community? Well, analytics tools are the next best thing. Track growth, spot trends, and fine-tune your strategy like a boss (that you are). The future of your community is in your hands if you have analytics tool inbuilt in your community!

With Wylo, you’ll have an eagle view of how your community is doing.


Monetization Options

Probably, every coach’s favorite part is here!

  • Subscription Models: If you are a health or fitness coach, you probably want to run subscriptions. And offering tiered subscription plans can create a steady revenue stream and incentivize engagement for you while maximizing the benefits for your members.


  • E-commerce Integration: The ability to sell products or services directly within your community platform with digital stores can add another layer of monetization.


Hosting events and courses

Hosting events and courses are a cornerstone features for any successful online coaching community. Live events, such as webinars, workshops, and Q&A sessions, create opportunities for real-time interaction, fostering a sense of strong connection among members. These events can be instrumental in providing value, addressing common questions, and showcasing expertise.

On the other hand, structured courses offer a more comprehensive educational experience, allowing members to learn at their own pace. Whether it's a series of video lessons or text content, courses can be tailored to meet the specific needs and goals of your community. Of course, Wylo provides you these powerful features as well.


Integration Capabilities

  • Third-Party Tools: Not a must. But if you are running a huge community with other applications to sync up, you might have to look into this. From email marketing to CRM systems, integration with third-party tools can streamline your operations and enhance functionality.

Building a coaching community that truly serves your audience is no small feat. But by ensuring you have these essential features, you’re setting yourself up for success. From user-friendly interfaces to powerful communication tools, each feature plays a vital role in creating a dynamic and engaging online community.

Wylo is designed with these needs in mind, offering a comprehensive solution for coaches looking to build and manage their online communities. Ready to take the plunge and create a powerful community? You’re welcome to set up a demo as you want.
