Gold Members

Welcome to your Gold Level Membership page, and thank you for signing up with us!  From here, you can access the services your membership entitles you to, and please check back once in a while as features may change or increase over time!  This page is accessible only to Gold Level members and you must be logged in to view it.

Below, you will find links to each of the features you have signed up for.  Depending on the item, you will find either instructions below the service, or you will be directed to a page giving you instructions on how to access or perform the service.  If you have a question, please try to post a comment below – this way, should anyone have the same question, we can develop a FAQ guide.  If you cannot post a comment, or do not get a response within 1 business day, please use the Contacts page to let us know your question.


Each Gold Member can simply go to the Editorial Calendar, pick a publication date not occupied by someone else, and type your post right in!  We’d like you to please adhere to the guidelines below, and here is the video explaining how you can get started right now!

Articles should be of use to expats and corporations that hire them.  Articles should NOT be about promoting your individual business, though we will include your name and a link to your website. Articles may be any of the following themes related to Expat Life and Coaching :

  •  “how-to”
  • “benefits of expat coaching” (this can be benefits to the expat, to the corporation, etc)
  • “examples of expat coaching success”
  • metrics/statistics about expats and expat life
  • helpful information for expats or businesses who employ them

Please use the following process/guidelines to submit your articles:

  • Maximum 600 words
  • Please spell check prior to submitting



As a Gold Member, you are eligible to be featured as a coach of the month!  You will be featured on our homepage, along with your photo, your website and contact details.  We need you to answer a standard set of questions, and your request will be handled first come, first serve.  NOTE – this is a PROACTIVE benefit – you must contact us to let us know you would like to be featured, we do not automatically feature you.  Also, there tends to be a waiting list, so the sooner you contact us, the sooner we can get your profile up!  :-)

Email margie@theexpatcoachassociation to give us your request!  Margie will email you a questionnaire to complete, and let you know the month you will be featured.

We ask that you kindly keep applications to around 600 words total – this will greatly help Margie cut down on editing (thank you Margie!) and ensure that our readers remain captivated by your information!


Gold members are entitled to a FULL listing on The Expat Coach Directory as part of your subscription. (This means inclusion of your photo, logo, and specialties which basic listings do not include.)  Our Directory comes up within the top 4 results of a Google search on “Expat Coach” so helps ensure that you get increased attention and exposure for your business.  NOTE: if you have been with us since before this site was created, and already had a listing on the Directory, it will be SAVED, and you do not need to resubmit.

You can update and maintain your own listing once it has been set up for you.  Here’s how you get that done.  If you don’t receive a welcome email within 2 business days of signing up and completing payment, please email  You will be sent a User Name and Password to login to your new profile at  Once that is set up for you, you will also need to watch an instructional video below, or if you can’t see it, the link is

Once you have uploaded your profile details, note that the intention of this newly designed site is to be RANDOM.  What that means is that in the scrolling display at the top of the page, 6 coaches will appear at a time.  If you refresh the page, or visit another time, it will be a different combination of 6.  The same goes for the order coaches are displayed on the page.

If you should need a new category to be added, just email with the category you need, and we will add it as soon as we can.


Thsi is really important to do!  Please see the helpful video below for details.  HUGE HINT – your author profile page will not display unless you actually author some articles!  So, HINT – get cracking and submit those articles so that you can be prominently featured on our site!!


If you have created any products or programs (membership programs, eBooks, printed books, etc) Gold Members may have their products showcased in our Self-Help store!  (Just hit the “Products” link to see where it will be featured.)

Your submission must be approved by one of our Administrators, and here is a video explaining how you can add your product for review:


This feature, for the time being, has been removed because none of our members were making use of it.  Should we want to re-instate a free version, or create a Facebook private group, please let us know if that’s of interest at  Please join our LinkedIn Group – The Expat Coach Association – to stay apprised of all communications about the Association and Directory, and to network with other expat coaches!


One of the benefits of Gold Level membership is that you do not have to pay anything extra to attend teleclasses, and you may opt to lead one, or a series, in the area of your expertise.

Please click here to either suggest topics for teleclasses you would like to attend, or request the ability to share your expertise with our community.



This area will be used to provide you with links to call recordings in case you miss a call, or want to listen to it again.


Once you have completed payment, Heather will upgrade your status so that when you log in to WORDPRESS – to the dashboard area – (please go to if  you are unable to find it, and log in there.  Once at the Dashboard Screen, you should see an option on the top left called “Site Stats” or “Dashboard Stats” which allows you to see how many visits we are getting a day, where the visits are from, what keywords are being used, and what links are being visited.


This area will let you know about group discounts you are entitled to for being a member of The Expat Coach Association


Starting in February 2014, we are trialing out additional social media exposure for all.  So, if you write an article, become a featured coach of the month, have a product listed with us – we will be making more efforts to drive traffic to those areas to get your more exposure for your business!
