A course is a type of passive income. But first what is passive income?? Passive income is the income in which you only have to make a product once and profit from it your entire life. I’ll show you how you can make an online course in 9 simple steps.
- Commit to creating a course
- Choosing a profitable idea
- Test your idea
- Create your course outline
- Create your course content
- Get your course online
- Set a price for your course
- Get students for your course
- Launch your course
STEP 1: COMMIT TO CREATING YOUR COURSE
You can never create an online course ( or do anything else) if you don’t commit to doing it so the first thing is that you should commit to creating an online course.
STEP 2: CHOOSE A PROFITABLE IDEA
You should choose a profitable idea. You should choose something that at least has one or two courses because if there is no course related to the idea which you want, then people are not interested in learning about it.
STEP 3: TEST YOUR IDEA:
Before launching your course you should first test your idea and see if people are interested. There are two ways that you can test your idea. First, you can create a mini-course and ask people to take it or you can create a launch page and ask people to signup to your waiting list.
STEP 4: CREATE YOUR COURSE OUTLINE:
You should start small and start with the problem your course solves. Think of your course curriculum. Think about the topics you want to teach
STEP 5: CREATE YOUR COURSE CONTENT
Most online courses are video courses but you can also include worksheets and the transcripts of your videos. You should not spend too much time creating content because it takes time and practice to become perfect. Most course creators spend too much time in perfecting their course that they never launch it. You can always go back and update your content.
STEP 6: GET YOUR COURSE ONLINE
You can get your course online by using a course creation software. I recommend Teachable for this. They help you start your online course and you can also connect it to your website. They make it really easy to create landing pages etc.
STEP 7: SET A PRICE FOR YOUR COURSE
If you’re worried that ” Will People buy my course? Is it too expensive?” Well, Teachable gives you a free pricing calculator which you can use to calculate the price of your course.
STEP 8: GET STUDENTS FOR YOUR COURSE
Market about your course on all the platforms you are active in. Ask your friends and family to recommend you.
You can either keep your course open all year round or you can keep a certain open and close date and ask people to signup to your email list.
STEP 9: LAUNCH YOUR COURSE
You’ve priced your course, you’re marketed it, Now the only thing left is to launch it. GOOD LUCK
So if you have followed the above steps, you now have a ready to launch your course. Tell me about your course idea in the comments.
