What is Noomii?
Noomii is the web's number one directory of professional coaches. Each month, thousands of prospective clients browse our network of independent coaches from across the United States, Canada, and 30 more countries. Our network includes coaches from a large variety of specializations, including life coaches, business coaches, executive coaches, career coaches, and more.
How does Noomii help me get new clients?
Noomii has two ways of helping you get more clients. First, clients can browse our directory of professional coaches to search for coaches by location, specialization, and more. Alternatively, our coach matching service allows clients to describe their coaching goals, background, and related information, and Noomii sends them a list of coaches who's experience and training matches their request.

How much does Noomii cost?
Noomii is absolutely free for clients. For coaches, our plans range from $19 to $59 per month. Find out more about Noomii's plans and pricing for coaches.
What is the difference between the free and paid plans?
The main difference between the free and paid plans is the amount of exposure to clients that you'll receive. With one of our paid plans, your Noomii profile gets seen by more of the thousands of client visitors we receive each month. We do this in a number of ways. First, our directory of coaches orders coaches plan type (Premium Plus at the top, followed by Premium, Basic, and Free). Second, only Premium Plus and Premium coaches may participate in our coach matching service, in which clients specify their specific goals and coaches recommend themselves as potential candidates. Third, paying coaches get additional profile features such as their direct phone number, link to a personal website, etc. The bottom line is that with more exposure, you'll be contacted by more clients. Our internal metrics show that coaches on one of Noomii's paid plans receive an average of four times as many client leads as coaches on our free plan. The good news is that there's never any obligation or long-term commitment; you are free to upgrade, downgrade, or cancel your membership at any time.
What are the other benefits of a paid plan?
There is so much more to a paid plan, we hardly know where to begin. For starters, every coach who signs up for a paid plan gets a one-on-one profile review with one of our co-founders. Over the years, we've learned exactly how to write a profile to maximize the number of client leads who contact you through Noomii. Drawing on this expertise, we will help you craft the perfect profile for your particular coaching niche. Additionally, every paid member gets an audio interview that will appear at the top of your profle. This is a great way for prospective clients to hear your voice and get a feel for what it might be like to coach with you. Finally, Noomii offers outstanding customer support via phone or email from our amazing customer relations manager, Ayla.
Does Noomii have a money-back guarantee?
Yes. For qualified coaches, Noomii offers a 100% money-back guarantee. If Noomii does not pay for itself after one year, we will refund 100% of your money, no questions asked. Learn more.
Why do you limit the matches to 5 coaches per client?
Our extensive user testing has shown that clients overwhelmingly want to see a short list of recommended coaches rather than a long list. After all, they are using the referral service to help them reduce a large number of prospective coaches to a small number of coaches whose experience, training, and background match their goals. We have therefore found that 5 coaches is the best number of coaches to recommend.
How many clients can I expect to get if I sign up for Noomii?
The number of clients you may expect depends on a number of factors such as your training, specialization, billing rates, experience, location, and which of Noomii's plans you choose. On average, a coach on one of Noomii's top two paying plans ($59/month and $29/month) will get about 6 clients per year through Noomii, compared to about 1 or 2 per year on the $19/month plan. Some coaches do much better, others not as well. This is one of the reasons Noomii offers a free interview and 1-hour profile review with one of our marketing experts for any one of our paying coaches. Call or email us for details!
What is the Return On Investment (ROI) for using Noomii?
The ROI calculation is relatively simple. Simply multiply the number of clients you receive from Noomii in one year by the amount that you bill each of them. Then compare that number to the amount that Noomii charges for a one year membership. To give an example, suppose that you are on the $29 per month plan. In one year, that will cost you a total of $348 (12 X $29). Although it varies substantially, the average coach on Noomii receives about six clients per year through the service. If you coach each client for 6 months at a rate of $350 per month (a typical coaching engagement), you will end up billing these six clients a total of $12,600 (6 clients X $350 X 6 months). So in this example, your ROI is $12,600 at a cost of just $348.
