Course description

It's time to stop procrastinating about creating that online course of yours, and start making it a reality today!

Create your own online course in this step by step course creation guide.

In this course, you will learn the steps to turn your knowledge, skills, experience and expertise into a profitable training course or learning product that you can use as an income stream in its own right, as a PAID lead capturing magnet for your primary products and services, and definitely as a tool to contribute to the body of knowledge in your industry and for helping others grow.

You will learn how to get all of your knowledge, expertise and experience out of your head and organise it in a logical, educationally progressive and structured manner that meets the fundamental principles of adult learning, so that you are designing a course for the best student experience.

Just some of the things you will get:

  • What you must know before choosing an online learning platform
  • The top 41 questions you should ask your LMS provider before choosing an online learning platform (Free Download)

  • Ensure a positive learning experience whilst also increasing your exposure, leads, sales and authority positioning

You will be provided with over 60 tutorial videos that will ensure your entire curriculum plan and content is placed out in a way that is engaging and meets adult learning principles and mixed learning styles - as well as earns you money from an 'edupreneurial' perspective.

This is a highly practical workshop-style course where you will actually COMPLETE your own saleable and profitable training course by the end.

You will need butchers paper (or a wall!), lots of coloured post-it notes and the will to work hard to complete your own training product.

Who should take this course?

  • Entrepreneurs and business owners who want to start doing business the modern way - getting PAID by your leads in a way that makes them thank you!
  • Thought leaders, entrepreneurs, speakers, experts and businesses who have a message or expertise to pass onto their audience will benefit from completing this course
  • If you want to generate leads, exposure, sales, make an impact to your audience and position yourself as an authority in your field by having your own authority training course, then this is for you
  • Anyone who wants to start getting paid for their content and expertise instead of giving it away for free all of the time
  • Anyone who wishes to grow their business
  • Anyone who wants to scale and automate their business by turning their knowledge and services into online learning products
