My name is Miguel Hernandez, it will be an honor to be your instructor, your humble guide and supporter throughout your course creation adventure.
Join me in this fun and comprehensive course and start learning how to monetize your expertise today!
As a top Udemy instructor I've made over $500,000 US selling online courses. In this course you'll learn with all detail exactly how I made that happen so you can do the same.
I will teach you how to create your own online course, make it look awesome, promote it, sell it, and make money with it.
Sounds good? well here is exactly what we will cover:
Just like you I have invested zillions of dollars and many years educating myself, learning new skills. It's time to share that hard earned knowledge with the world and creating an online course is one of the best ways to do so, reach thousands of people and why not make some money on the side.
Are you ready? Let's do it!
Let's take action right away. The number one reason students don't create an online course is because they don't even get started. In the next 5 minutes I challenge you to record and upload your first lecture. It doesn't have to be perfect, it doesn't matter what you teach. You can worry about perfection later, this is about loosening up, making mistakes, learning and enjoying the process. Are you ready? Let's do it!
The lasy thing you want to do is spend weeks creating an online course that no one wants to buy. To avoid that you need to validate your course idea before you build the course. In this chapter we will cover 3 validation stages.
The first validation strategy is to search for market proof online. We want to ensure there are already people looking for similar courses or existing courses that people are already paying money for.
The second and more analytical approach to finding market proof online involves using Google's free Keyword Planner which will help us discover how many people a month are looking for solutions on the topic for our potential course.
Now it's time to gather real world feedback from our existing network and audience to discover exactly what are their main struggling points. We will use that information to create the outline for our pilot course.
The 3rd validation stage is the most effective of all. It consists on selling the course before you build it!
You can also leverage existing crowdfunding platforms to validate your course idea. the best thing is that you get paid by your supporters to build your course in advance!
