SPI 304: Building an Online Course From Start to Finish

Last year I built three online courses—premium courses that people paid for—as well as a fourth free course. They’ve been working like gangbusters: In 2017 I earned $1 million in revenue from online courses alone. Online courses have been an incredible experience for me, and today I’m sharing the ten steps you can take to create life-changing online courses for your audience.

Why are online courses so great? Why wouldn’t you do an online course? Does it make sense to do an online course? Does it best serve your audience? Today we’re going to get into all of these questions and a whole lot more. (I hope you brought a notebook!)

I hesitated about building an online course for so long because, well, I was too afraid to sell to my audience. The big realization for me? You can sell and serve at the same time. And, I realized that I wouldn’t be taking away from the people in my audience who are more keen on my free, lower-level material. It made me realize that I could serve even more people through courses, especially people who were willing to invest in taking their businesses to the next level.

If you’ve ever considered starting an online course, this is a great place to start, and even if you have a couple of courses up online already, this episode will boost your strategy. I’m going to go deep into my personal experiences with courses so that you can take your business to the next level. Let’s get started!

I want to thank David Siteman Garland for all the help he’s given me in getting my courses up and running. And I’m excited to announce that we’re doing two co-hosted webinars on March 15 and 16, where we’re going to teach you even more information about setting up your online course and a lot of the finer details related to that. SPI students that have gone through this webinar have come out with amazing results. If you want to register check out SmartPassiveIncome.com/onlinecourses.
