Are you a spiritual entrepreneur looking to take your business online? Do you have a passion for helping others heal and transform, but aren’t sure where to start in the online world?
If that’s you, I’m glad our paths have crossed through the Universe. In this blog post, I’ll walk you through a step-by-step guide and share some tips on how to start your spiritual business online, so you can launch faster without feeling overwhelmed.
When I left my 9-5 job to begin my own business, I was like Alice in Wonderland, not caring where I’d end up. One thing I knew (conformed by my numerologist) was that I wasn’t meant to be an employee. I was destined for bigger things. Still, having a roadmap would have saved me countless hours figuring out my direction.
Today, I’m sharing what I’d do if I were to start from scratch again.
Why build a Spiritual Business?
Before you dive in, ask yourself why you’re doing this. The security of a 9-5 job feels comfortable.
But if you’re like me (and chances are, you are since like attracts like), you’ve got plenty 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.
Don’t fret; you’re not alone. The Universe has connected us for a reason, and I’m here to guide you. I’ve crafted a little spiritual business quick start guide on launching a spiritual business online. It’s designed to set you on the path toward success and abundance.
So, take a deep breath, trust the journey, and let’s build a business that aligns with your soul’s purpose.
What’s a Spiritual Business?
A spiritual business operates based on core spiritual principles. It could be energy healing, tarot readings, coaching, or selling products like crystals and candles. The key is aligning your business with your spiritual values and using your gifts to help others.
Remember, though, a spiritual business is still a business.
Energy out equals energy in.
The more value you offer, the more you’ll receive.
You deserve to earn a living doing what you love…
And your clients deserve to invest in themselves and their spiritual growth.
What’s an Online Spiritual Business?
Now, let’s define an online business, be it spiritual or not.
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? 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. 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.
People seek genuine connections with brands that share their values. To get noticed, build a personal brand that mirrors your beliefs. Owning your magic is the best way to stand out. Unique approaches, personal stories, and different perspectives set you apart – make sure to incorporate them in your brand.
I can’t stress this enough: in a noisy online world, you’re the attraction. So let them know you.
Align visuals and messaging with your brand identity for consistency and memorability.
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 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, Starseed!
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. Surprised? Yes, you probably won’t hear it from any other web designer, but you can actually 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
Your website is your business’s virtual home – a place to showcase your genius and attract 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!
