Many people think that they need to work one-on-one first before they can create a profitable online course. Not the case.One-on-one work limits you to trading hours for dollars.There’s a limit on how much money you can make because you’re only one person. When I ran my former web designer studio, I was working long hours and often didn’t take breaks on weekends…all because I needed to work more hours in order to hit my income goals.If you do have a service-based business, don’t worry. There’s nothing inherently wrong with that. It’s wonderful to offer services (I used to!), but wouldn’t you like to pop the cap on your income ceiling, help hundreds more people than you currently can, and work a whole lot less?
I like to think of it this way: Grocery stores sell groceries. Mechanics sell auto repairs. And bloggers sell online courses.
HERE’S WHY BLOGGERS ARE *THE* BEST PEOPLE TO CREATE AND SELL ONLINE COURSES:
- You’re already sharing information on your blog – that’s virtually the definition of what a blog is! Online courses allow you to package up that information into a product that your audience will be dying to buy. It’s the natural next step.
- With online courses, you become a leader in your industry and can create a business based on your skills and passion vs. ads and traffic. That’s more like it!
- Your income potential is limitless. It takes you the same amount of time to make a course that sells 20 spots as it does a course that sells 2,000. And you can make a full-time income from your courses even with a small audience
It takes hard work to make this happen, but it’s not overly complicated.
You can absolutely get results like me and my students have.
