Why teaching online courses is ‘a dream business’
You could have 1,000 people on an online course, and it doesn’t have a major impact on your time, but it has a great impact on your income.
Find the pain point
What problem do you solve? What transformation does your course bring to people? What will exist for them after they take the training? What people have that pain and are willing to pay for it?
Keep it simple
The formula that I suggest to people is five sections, with five lessons in each section with five slides in each lesson. And that just makes it quantifiable for you, as the online instructor or the trainer.
Don’t overwhelm your students
Nobody wakes up in the morning going, ‘wahoo, I’m going to buy an eight hour course today’, if you could teach them in five minutes they’d be delighted.
Get on camera
I would highly recommend that you need to be on camera as much as possible. It’s a great, engaging experience for the student because they feel like you’re there with them. And they get to know, like, and trust you a lot quicker.
