6 Tips for Online Course Creation Motivation

6 Tips for Online Course Creation Motivation

Thank you to those who answered the 2 questions on my quick survey last week.

I aim to answer as many of your questions as possible over the next week – and have started today with this video (below).

Most of the questions fit into the 4 main phases of creating an online course (which I detail in the video below). 

However, there was one group of questions that come one stage BEFORE creating your online course.

These questions included:

“Is creating an online course really worth it?”

“I feel overwhelmed about even getting started – how can I get motivated to start creating courses?”

“I think I need some guidance around my course creation mindset, I really want to do this but keep procrastinating and letting everything else take priority and I’m not sure why”

I have recorded a video today that aims to answer these questions, give you a dose of course creation motivation and help those of you who have been thinking about creating a course to overcome your procrastination and put it to the top of your list before the year is up!

In this video, I share:

  •  6 x online course creation motivations, AND
  • Some tips for overcoming the top 3 fears and causes of course creation procrastination that I saw coming up in the survey results

Summary of main video points

If you are a ’global’ learner type, and prefer to just skip to the main points, here is a summary of the main points in my vidoe and the exact time at which that point in the video starts so that you can fast-forward to the points you are most interest in.

 

[06.20] Course Creation Motivation 1: Scale your business

  • From one on one to > one to MANY
  • Impact unlimited people
  • Go global instantly
  • Bigger market
  • Millions of people at the same time without any extra work or overheads

[10.06] Course Creation Motivation 2: Make more money

  • More people means more money
  • It’s a commercial product
  • It doesn’t need you to be present
  • Passive (you don’t do anything!)
  • Subscriptions / mega-launches / evergreen
  •  

[14.37] Course Creation Motivation 3: Build your email list

  • Your email list is a business asset
  • Can be a cheap or free lead magnet
  • Highly targeted leads
  • Immediate value provision
  • Have it as a pop up on your website
  • Give away on podcasts, blogs, social media, conferences etc
  •  

[17:45] Course Creation Motivation 4: You’ll get have more time

  • No longer exchanging your time for money
  • Less labour-intensive services, more passive course sales
  • Serve the people who can’t afford you usually
  • No more ‘picking your brain over a coffee’
  •  

[20:30] Course Creation Motivation 5: Become an industry authority

  • If you are teaching something, you automatically position yourself as a ‘leader’ or ‘expert’
  • You are ‘showing’ your expertise rather than promising it
  •  

[20:46] Course Creation Motivation 6:

  • Multiply your content 
  •  
  • Your course can be repurposed into many other income generating, authority positioning products and services
  • Books, eBooks, membership academy, Bootcamps, keynotes etc

 

[23:52] There is No Reason NOT To Do It!

  • If you want any of this, creating your online course will make it happen:
  •  
  • More time
  • More money
  • Help more people 
  • Make a bigger impact 
  • Leave a legacy
  • More products to sell
  • More authority and credibility
  • Go global
  • Bigger audience

 

[26:19] Course Creation Fear-Busting 1: I’m Overwhelmed / Where do I start?

  • Don’t focus on the end product
  • There are just small, simple steps
  • Nothing is ‘born’ in its ‘adult’ form
  • It’s an evolutionary process that comes in stages
  • Follow the given and proven process one step at a time

 

[30:42] Course Creation Fear-Busting 2: Judgement, criticism, imposter, I’m not good enough

  • You are only teaching what you DO know (not what you don’t)
  • You are only teaching those who DON’T know it yet
  • To every 1st grader, a 4th grader is an expert
  • Intelligent people doubt themselves the most
  • You must call yourself an expert in order to become one
  • You’ve been training for this your entire life
  •  

[34:47] Course Creation Fear-Busting 3: What if nobody buys it? / What if they think I’m boring?

  • You have 100% chance of it not selling if it’s not created 
  • Market research and beta-testing a pilot version
  • It’s not just about content – you may just need marketing help
  • Like attracts like – you can’t make everyone love you
  • There are ‘people’ out there for everyone – you can only find your tribe by being yourself
  • They way YOU explain it is unique (ignore comp)
  •
