Are you a spiritual entrepreneur looking to take your business online? Do you have a passion for helping others heal and transform, but don’t know where to start when it comes to the online world?
If so, I’m glad that the Universe made our paths cross! In this blog post, I’ll share with you a step-by-step guide and a few tips on how to start a spiritual business online, so you can launch your business faster without the overwhelm.
You see… When I quit my 9-5 job to start my business, I didn’t know which path to take. I was like Alice in Wonderland, who didn’t care where she would end up.
The only thing I knew for sure (and my numerologist confirmed it) was that I wasn’t meant to be an employee. I was meant for greater things. But I admit that having at least a roadmap would have saved me hundreds, if not thousands of hours that I spent on figuring out which way I should go.
Today, I’m sharing with you what I would do if I were to begin from scratch yet another time.
Why build a Spiritual Business?
Before you even begin, ask yourself why you want to do this. Working 9-5 and doing what they ask you to do feels safe.
But if you’re anything like me (and you probably are, since like attracts like) you probably already have a plethora of reasons to embark on this adventure…
- You have a burning desire to help people and make a positive impact in their lives.
- You’re tired of feeling undervalued and underpaid – it’s time to create abundance on your own terms.
- Your life is too precious to spend it building someone else’s business and lining their pockets. It’s time to invest in yourself and your own vision.
- You’ve always felt like a square peg in a round hole. Maybe it’s undiagnosed ADHD, or maybe you’re simply meant for something bigger and more fulfilling.
- It’s the Age of Aquarius and you crave freedom. You want to take control of your finances, your schedule, and your location. The universe is your playground!
- You crave a heart-centered mission that fuels your soul, not just a job that pays the bills.
- You refuse to work simply to exist – you want a life full of meaning, purpose, and passion.
- Maybe you can’t quite put your finger on it, but your heart is telling you it’s time to make a change. Trust the universe and take that leap of faith!
If any of the reasons I listed resonate with you, then I welcome you with open arms to the world of spiritual entrepreneurship. You may be wondering where to even begin on this journey of creating a small or home-based spiritual business.
But don’t worry, you don’t have to do it alone. The Universe has brought us together for a reason, and I’m here to guide you on this exciting path. I have created a spiritual business quick start guide on how to start a spiritual business online that will set you on the right path towards success and abundance.
So take a deep breath, trust in the journey, and let’s start creating a business that aligns with your soul’s purpose.
What’s a Spiritual Business?
A spiritual business is a business that operates from a set of core spiritual principles. This can include anything from energy healing and tarot readings to coaching and selling physical products like candles and crystals. What matters is that your business is aligned with your spiritual values and that you are using your gifts to help others.
It’s important to note that a spiritual business is still a business.
If you give energy, you deserve to receive energy in return.
The bigger the value you provide, the more energy you should receive.
Unless you live off prana, you need to make money to sustain your livelihood and invest in your business. Charging for your services is not only acceptable, but it’s also necessary.
You have the right to earn a living doing what you love…
And your customers have the right to invest in themselves and their spiritual journeys.
What do we mean by an online Spiritual Business?
Now, let’s define what’s an online business.
If you provide your services one-to-one in real-time but started to use ZOOM – that’s not an online business. That’s a traditional service-based business. It takes advantage of a new communication tool, but it still requires you to trade your time for money. Ouch!
You can increase your prices, but there isn’t much room for growth.
An online business is one that is scalable and has the potential for passive income. In other words, it’s a business that can grow and thrive without you having to be present all the time. It’s a business that you can (at least partly) set up and automate so that you can focus on what you do best: helping others and spreading your vibes.
A spiritual online business can help you impact millions globally while giving you the 3 Fs you deserve: Fun, Freedom, and Finances.
How to Start a Spiritual Business Online
Spiritual Business Online – STEP #1:
Get crystal clear about who you help and how
So, you’ve got some spiritual gifts to share, huh? Awesome! But before you start spamming social media with your stuff, you need to figure out who you’re helping and how you can help them. That means getting super clear on your soul tribe and what they’re struggling with.
No more random PDFs! You need to create products and services that actually resonate with your audience. So, start by identifying the core problem you solve and the benefits of working with you. What kind of transformation do you provide?
Once you’ve got that figured out, it’s time to create some targeted messaging that speaks directly to your ideal customer. That’s how you’ll stand out in a sea of other spiritual business owners and build a loyal following of soulmate clients.
Spiritual Business Online – STEP #2:
Be strategically authentic.
Being authentic is the name of the game in the online world. People want to connect with genuine individuals and brands that share their values. To make a lasting impression, it’s crucial to build a personal brand that reflects who you are and what you believe in.
To make your mark in a crowded market, you need to stand out from the crowd. You could do this by having a unique approach, sharing your story, showcasing your personality, or offering a different perspective.
Ideally, you should incorporate all of these elements into your personal brand.
With so many entrepreneurs competing for one’s attention online, it’s you people are actually buying. Let them know you.
Once you’ve defined your unique selling point, it’s important to make sure your visuals and messaging align with your brand identity. This will help reinforce your message and make you more memorable to your audience.
Spiritual Business Online – STEP #3:
Create your irresistible offer.
Have you ever bought something online because you knew it would fix all your problems, not just because of a stupid countdown timer? Yeah, me too. Last time it was a binaural beats pack that helps me keep my sanity when my baby has a bad day.
That’s why it’s crucial to create an irresistible offer that speaks directly to your soul tribe’s needs and desires.
Do your research and find out what your ideal customers are struggling with. Then, create a product or service that solves that problem and helps them achieve their desired outcome. Make sure to highlight the benefits of your offer and how it will transform their lives.
Digital products are a great way to scale your business and create passive income. Consider creating ebooks, online courses, audio files, coaching packages, memberships, or templates that can be easily automated and delivered to your customers. This allows you to help more people while freeing up your time to focus on other aspects of your business.
Spiritual Business Online – STEP #4:
Show up and be consistent
In order to grow your spiritual business online, it’s important to show up and be consistent. This means creating valuable content and engaging with your audience on a regular basis.
No hiding in the closet! Talk a lot about your unique approach and the benefits of working with you.
Choose your favorite channels and stick to them. You don’t have to be everywhere, but it’s important to be active on the platforms where your ideal customer hangs out. This could mean creating regular video content for YouTube, sharing your insights on Instagram, or starting a podcast. You can also leverage traditional in-person networking opportunities to build relationships and expand your reach.
Don’t hide behind a team or a company. You are the brand. Whether you’re a one-woman-show, or have a few collaborators who help you with some aspects of your business, stick to writing in the first person.
Spiritual Business Online – STEP #5:
Start selling your stuff
Last but not least, don’t forget that building a thriving online business takes some serious time and effort. Don’t stress if you don’t have it all figured out at the beginning.
My advice? Start small, adventurous soul!
Whip up a minimum viable product (MVP) – this could be as simple as a landing page or a product you sell on Etsy or Gumroad. Yep, you heard that right – you can start selling before you even have a website.
Use this as your foundation to gather feedback from your crew and tweak your offerings as you go along. As you grow and learn, you can expand your spiritual business and focus on building out your website and marketing channels. Remember that your biz will grow and change just like you will, so stay open and flexible to new ideas and opportunities.
Spiritual Business Online – STEP #6:
Get a magnetic website that showcases your genius
Sis, your website is like the virtual home for your business – it should be a place where you can flex your genius and attract your dream clients. Make sure it’s optimized for conversions and has clear calls to action that get your visitors signing up for your email list.
I know, I know… Emails? Who reads those anymore?
Well, the truth is, emails are still super relevant! They’re a great way to build relationships with your peeps and promote your products and services when the time is right.
Now, can you start a spiritual business without a website? Technically, yes. But as a web designer, let me tell you, having a website that’s a total magnet for your soulmate clients makes everything so much easier!
