What's the difference between a Coach Plan and selling through the Marketplace?
As you're weighing your options, it's important to consider whether you will be purchasing seats for your athletes, or using our integrated billing system to grow your online sales through the Marketplace.
Below we'll cover:
- What's a Coach Plan?
- When to use a Coach Plan
- What's the Marketplace?
- When to use the Marketplace
A Coach Plan covers your $9.99/month fee for coaching access. Every coach is required to purchase a Coach Plan for $9.99/month.
In addition, you can "flex" your plan, paying for athletes seats. This covers the monthly $1 fee per athlete, so that there is no cost to your athletes to use the TrainHeroic mobile app.
We recommend purchasing a Coach Plan with athlete seats IF you collect athlete fees upfront and not on a monthly basis, do not collect payment from your athlete's directly, or have a separate billing system through your facility.
We also recommend purchasing a Coach Plan if you intend to train athletes 1:1 and are looking for a tighter feedback loop.
Selling through the Marketplace
Selling through the Marketplace allows you to streamline athlete sign-up with an integrated billing system, where your athletes will be billed through TrainHeroic. You can set your monthly subscription price for your athletes, and the only up-front cost to you is your $9.99/month coaching fee. In other words, you do NOT need to pay for athlete seats if athletes are signing up through the Marketplace.
We recommend Marketplace for coaches who are seeking to grow their business with online sales, OR coaches who are looking for seamless billing and athlete management. With Marketplace sales, you won't have to reconcile your athlete list for missed payments!
Can I purchase seats for some athletes, and also sell subscriptions through the Marketplace?
Yes! As a coach, you will be able to purchase seats for your athletes, in addition to selling subscriptions through the Marketplace. In fact, we have many coaches who do so!
A single athlete can also be on a Marketplace Team, while also receiving programming through their 1:1 calendar. In this scenario, the athlete will be considered as an 'Attached Athlete' in your Coach Plan for programming delivered through their 1:1 calendar, and billed through the Marketplace for their Team subscription.
