  • No previous experience required
  • This course is created for authors (non authors will learn just as much, but will need 'content')


More authors are creating online course than ever before. This ‘Lite’ easy-to-use online course will show you how.

As an author you have a distinct advantage over other course creators because you have all the content already produced.

However many authors have never created an online course before and often make the same rookie mistakes. They don’t understand the three types of course, how they can best support your business, how long they should be, what content to include, what to exclude, what price point it should be sold at, and more.

You will learn;

  • The three types of online course

  • How to select the type of course that's right for you

  • How a course can best support and grow your business

  • How long your course should be

  • What content you should include

  • How to keep your students engaged

  • What price point to sell at

  • And what your best next step is

This course will answer all these questions and more.

Providing clarity, motivation and direction.

Simply use the free downloads included in the course and work through the video exercises and by the end of this short course you will have completed work sheets that answer many (if not all) of your critical course creation decisions.

You will then be able to create an inspirational online course that will wow your students, enhance your reputation as an expert in your field, and grow your business at the same time. Without the usual stress, confusion and mistakes that others make.

Who this course is for:

  • For those creating their first ever online course, or…
