Hey girlfriend! You need to take all of your wonderful brilliance and create an online course. It’s time.
“Whaaat? Learn how to create an online course? Are you serious, Pam? I wouldn’t even know where to start.”
Yes, honey, I know… Learning sucks but we’ve got to do it, if we want to reach the top, scale the summit, ace the test… You get the point, don’t you?
So, because I know you’re shaking your head reading this and are all set to click away, run and hide… I’m going to get straight to the point.
Here’s the thing… creating an online course can do wonders not only for your income but also, for your overall brand and today. Yup! It’s totally true and I’m going to show you exactly how.
Strapped in? Let’s blast off!
1. Courses Create Credibility
First up, courses create instant credibility. You’re a teacher, an instructor, a guide sharing your incredible gifts and wisdom with the world.
And when you do, all that credibility, that trust, that respect for you just gets cemented in the hearts and minds of your clients.
If someone can’t work with you one-on-one or maybe hesitates because they’ve been burnt in the past, a course can be a fantastic way to open the door and invite them in.
2. Courses Boost Your Income
Ooohh… sweet ka-ching!
Yes, courses are a fan-freakin’-tabulous way of boosting your income. Now, darling, there’s only one of you and while you’d love to work with a bajillion people, both you and I know that ain’t happenin’.
Because, you can’t clone yourself… yet. 😉
So, what’s the next best thing?
You create a course that allows you to reach that said bajillion people easily and effectively.
Not only do you fulfill your life’s purpose and live your passion, but you also get to wake up to PayPal notifications everyday! Oohh, music to my ears, I say!
3. Courses Connect You with Your Community
Finally and most importantly, courses help you connect with your community by bringing you closer to them via your group coaching calls, a FB group that goes with the course, the feedback survey post the course and in so many ways.
You get to tune into and tap into the needs, struggles and lives of your ideal customers in a deep and data-driven yet emotionally-fueled way. Now, where else would you be able to do that? Yeah, nowhere is right.
There you go, my beautiful peeps. 3 killer reasons your coaching practice needs a course right now!
What’s stopping you, I ask?
Answer me in the comments and let’s get your brilliance available to the masses!
(Pssst!! Want to know a secret? I’m not just telling you to create a course, I’m deep in it with you. That’s right!! My first course is getting to ready to blast off. Am I scared to launch it? You betcha baby!! But I truly practice what I preach. But more on that later. Can’t wait to share the details with you.)
i created and offered my very first online courses this year. (and have completed three of them so far.) and they were everything you said they would be! (i established credibility for myself, i boosted my income, and connected more with my community). i put off writing an e-course for a very long time, but i finally pushed through my resistance and got it done. 🙂 and i am oh-so-glad i did. (good luck with your first course!)
That is awesome April!! I’ll bet your community is thankful you pushed through and got out there too. 😉
Exciting! Good luck with your upcoming launch.
I couldn’t agree more, Pam! That’s on my bucket list, too. I think you nailed every benefit to having one, and there are some great programs out there to walk us all through it. I’m super-excited for you launch!!
You are spot on Pam, and love how you use humor, and been there, are there yourself with the fear of course creating for the first time. I am so excited for you with your first online course! You are going to uplevel, Baby! Hoo Ray!
WOOHOO!! Thanks Jul’s!! It’s a fun, exciting and terrifying feeling all rolled into one but I can’t wait to get it out there. And you KNOW I’ll be sharing everything along the way. 😉
