Do you want to create an online course but don’t know where to start or frankly feel overwhelmed with where to begin?
In this weeks post I cover four questions you need to ask yourself to get you out of overwhelm, and into full blown creation mode.
In a world of information overload sometimes you just need a little nudge in the right direction, or just a few pointers to give you the clarity you need.
Click the video below to discover Q’s you need to ask yourself.
Q1: What’s your why?
The first question you need to ask yourself is your why.
- Why are you creating this course?
- What’s the reason behind it?
- What’s the reason you want to create it?
- Is it to be able to add an addition income stream to your business?
- Is it to be able to relieve yourself of doing your coaching or one-on-one work with your clients?
It’s really important to answer these questions or otherwise you end up very unclear about what you’re doing and why it’s important.
So make sure that you answer that question; what’s your why?
Q2: Is it the right time to create your course?
Now, there’s never a right time, a perfect moment, a perfect opportunity to create your online course.
If you’re reading this post and you’re at the very early stages of starting your business, creating an online course is not what you need to do right now.
But, if you are have a business, a private practice or coaching business where you’ve been doing this for a very long time then creating a course is the perfect time for you.
Creating a course is what you do when you want to scale up or when you want to relieve yourself of some of the one-on-one work that you’ve been doing.
So ask yourself this question: “am I at the point where I need to start scaling up my business and relieving myself so I can have some additional time to spend with my family or to do other things inside of my business?”.
Q3: Who is your course for and what problem do they have right now
Now a lot of people get caught up in thinking: “Oh my goodness, it needs to be really long course and it needs to be this and it needs to be ginormous” but, actually it doesn’t. It can be a small course to start off with and solves 1 key problem which brings me to the fourth question.
Q4: What is the outcome that they will be getting from your course?
Make sure you define the outcome of your course or you’ll get stuck and you’ll wonder what the hell you’re doing.
Get very clear on what the problem is and what the outcome is and then you’re able to perfectly lead someone to a transformation and to that outcome that they’re looking for.
So to recap, make sure you ask yourself these four questions.
- Q1: What’s your why?
- Q2: Is it the right time to create your course?
- Q3: Who is your course for and what problem do they have right now
- Q4: What is the outcome that they will be getting from your course?
