The easiest, fastest, and most affordable way to get a coaching website designed to grow your business
Imagine waking up to a beautiful new website, created just for you and your coaching business.
It’s modern, professional, and specifically designed to grow your coaching business, working 24/7 to consistently turn visitors into clients. The best part? You didn’t have to build it.
You didn’t have waste weeks watching tutorials or months stressing over tech. You didn’t have to lose time or money trying to do something you never wanted to do in the first place. Instead, it was all done for you…without hiring an expensive designer or developer.
To most coaches this sounds like a fairy tale because until now getting a website meant one of two things: do it yourself or pay a fortune to someone else.
Though it can be tempting to attempt to do it all yourself, that approach will actually stand in the way of your success as a coach
Everything you need can take months to figure out
Few things are as frustrating as website technology
Time spent making a site is time lost growing your business
A website that works requires online marketing expertise
Hiring experts to do things you can’t or shouldn’t is key to your success, but hiring an expensive designer also has its drawbacks
Custom website design can take three to six months
Without support, custom sites can be hard to use or update
Custom websites can cost upwards of $5k to $10k
Most designers don’t know coaching or marketing
So it seems you stuck either way: lose your time and money and sanity trying to do it all by yourself or pay a fortune to someone else for a website that may not actually work.
What if there was a way to get a website built specifically for coaches by an expert in design and marketing for a price you could actually afford? Well, that’s exactly what we do at SavvyHippo, but before diving into those details, let’s go back a few years…
In 2001 I launched my first personal development website and it quickly did...nothing. But I was hooked and became obsessed with finding the answer to making it a success.
After years of tinkering and testing, I finally uncovered the framework of pages and pieces to make the site work. After that, it became the #1 motivation website online, generating millions of visitors and over $1,000,000 in sales.
Everything was going smoothly until I my doctor called one evening. My worst fear came true...cancer. As my treatment began, my business unfortunately had to stop.
With time to think, I realized I had only created sites for myself, but there were others who were facing the same website struggles I once faced but had figured out.
In all my time in personal development, one group stood out as the most effective in changing people's lives, but also in desperate need of website help: coaches. If I beat cancer, I would dedicate myself to helping them.
I would start a new company to erase their website worries by giving them everything they needed succeed online as a coach. I beat cancer and SavvyHippo was born.
It may seem odd to have so much passion for pixels on a screen, but to me a website is so much more. It’s your face to the world, a digital representation of everything you stand for and everything you strive for.
It’s your message and it’s your mission.
Like Nothing Else in the Market
Custom website design is time-consuming and expensive, which means it’s out of the question for most coaches. That’s why I wanted to create something different, something unlike anything else out there. I wanted to give coaches everything they needed in a coaching website but for a price they could actually afford. That’s when the idea for the SavvyHippo Platform hit me.
By using technology to automate certain steps of the website-building process, I could create beautiful, effective coaching sites in far less time and for far less money. I could also include far more tools to help coaches actually succeed online.
So I hired a firm to develop my idea into a one-of-a-kind platform that made the process easier, faster, and more affordable than ever before. After a year of developing, testing, and refining, it was ready for launch. Here’s how it works…

The information you need to make the best decision for your coaching business
All SavvyHippo websites are built on WordPress, the leading website platform on the internet. Each page is built with the industry-leading page builder, Elementor. This premium page builder is included free of charge, for life, and allows drag-and-drop creation and editing of pages and posts.
On average, a 14-page website with email marketing setup, integrated calendar, lead generator, and training can cost $10,000+. With the SavvyHippo platform, you pay a one-time fee of $1,995 ($1,000 down, $995 when your site launches).
The SavvyHippo platform was developed to replace the time and expense of working directly with a designer, while still delivering a beautiful and effective website. While you won’t have access to a designer, you will be walked step by step throughout the entire process via training videos, website examples, and built-in elements that help you make the best design decisions.
Yes. After twenty years of experience in the personal development field, we have developed page layouts proven to turn visitors into clients. Though we use the same templates with each site, the combination of your colors, fonts, images, and content make for a unique brand and website.
Every page is fully customizable. If you don’t like one or more of the layouts, you are welcome to make any changes you desire using the installed user-friendly page builder after your project is complete. Video tutorials are included to help you.
You have an unlimited number of days to submit your material. Whenever that time arrives, you’ll schedule your build on our Website Build calendar.
In order to use our service, you need a registered domain name, website hosting, and a domain email address. If you don’t yet have these in place or don’t know how to get them, we’ll walk you step by step through the process.
No. SavvyHippo is not a domain registrar or website hosting service. We are a one-time service that creates your website and everything you need to go with it to turn visitors into paying clients. We do, however, recommend a vendor for your domain and hosting needs during the onboarding process.
Not a problem! We work with all of the leading email marketing and online calendar platforms. We’ll simply integrate your current services into your website.
Unfortunately, no. All client sites are built on the WordPress platform, making Wix, Weebly, and Squarespace incompatible. But don’t worry! We use the leading page builder to generate and edit all pages and posts, so if you like the drag-and-drop convenience of Wix, Weebly, or Squarespace, you’ll love your SavvyHippo site.
Because all of our sites are built on WordPress, like any other WordPress website you can create an unlimited number of pages and posts. The template pages included with our service, however, include only the 14 pages listed above.
Yes. If you do not already have a logo, we recommend The Logo Company. However, if you prefer a simplified logo using the fonts chosen within the platform, we are happy to offer that upgrade to you for a small fee.
Photos make the biggest difference in website design, which is why we highly recommend working with a professional photographer to gather images for your website. A photography guide is included within the platform to give to your chosen photographer to ensure the shots you need are taken.
Knowing copywriting (the words on the pages) is one of the greatest obstacles for coaches, we’ve included step-by-step videos walking you through each section of each page to gather the best possible copy. We also include ten sample sites to learn from as well as additional help text for each required piece of writing. If that’s not enough, we also offer an optional copy editing upgrade that can be requested from within the platform.
We install an industry-leading SEO plugin on every SavvyHippo site, making each page SEO friendly. We also submit your website and sitemap directly to Google and Bing. Keyword research, keyword use, tracking of search engine position, etc. are the responsibility of the client. We do not offer ongoing SEO services.
No. Generating traffic is the responsibility of the coach. We do, however, include training videos to help you grow your coaching business, including how to get traffic to your new website.
Along with a platform FAQ and website tutorials, you’ll find a support request form within the platform where you can submit questions directly to our staff.
We don’t offer ongoing maintenance, but we do have recommended vendors if the need arises.
Each client receives one round of copy/color revisions. Because we use a proprietary theme for our pages, no design revisions are possible. However, you may request word changes (copy) or colors changes if you’d like your chosen color scheme to be used in a different combination on your web pages.
After spending twenty years in the personal development field, first as creator of the top-ranked motivation website in the world and author of The Motivated Mind and then as business consultant to certified coaches, founder Jason Gracia funneled his design and marketing expertise into a website platform to help the men and women who have dedicated themselves to helping others.
“A website that works, that communicates the right message, builds credibility, and guides visitors to becoming clients is essential for today’s coach. In the past, this meant investing too much time or too much money into a website that often didn’t work. The SavvyHippo platform solves both of those issues.”
With SavvyHippo, you can finally get a beautiful website that has everything a coach needs for a price that every coach can afford.
