Course creation with the blind guy

  2. 2. WHO AM I • Why I got started online • How I got started online • What happened next
  3. 3. CPA OFFERS • Seeing people do better then me • Figuring out why I wasn’t doing what I expected to do • Started to see courses be created
  4. 4. BRANDING FAILING • Brand with authority • Everyone is teaching branding • But did take the knowledge as a free give away
  5. 5. MLM/NETWORK MARKETING • Didn’t enjoy selling the products/services and giving the resources • Didn’t see the value and didn’t feel others would be able to use it • But I did make money with this service and did like to see what others were able to accomplish
  6. 6. FIRST EXPERENCE WITH COURSE CREATION • Created my first course based around the BWA content • Used paid memberships pro with wordpress and another plugin that stripped the menus
  7. 7. DID IT WORK? • Yes but had problems with maintaining it • Kept plugins up to date, but didn’t give the best experence to my customers • Felt like it was hacked togeather
  8. 8. HOW DID I GET MY FIRST FIVE CUSTOMERS? • Though it wasn’t best experence • Sent an email with an audio file to a mailing list • Asked for beta members who could get in at discounted rate to give me feedback
  9. 9. FEEDBACK IS IMPORTANT FOR CREATING A COURSE • Courses grow with feedback • It’s ok to ask to be paid for the course • It’s not purfect but the next version should be better
  10. 10. FAILED BY NOT FIXING SOONNER • People provided me feedback • Didn’t get new version out fast enough • Wasn’t happy with my setup on WP
  11. 11. LOOKED FOR LMS • Didn’t want to pay for zippy courses • Tried teachable but wasn’t happy • Maybe I didn’t give it a good enough chance
  12. 12. THINKIFIC • Why I chose thinkific • Taking there pricing course on my iPhone and noticed how purfect this platform was for a student
  13. 13. FIGURED IF HALF WAY AS ACCESSIBLE • On the admin side then maybe it would be worth it • Started to move my old course for wordpress with a blind guy into the thinkific platform
  14. 14. WHAT I’M DOING • I thought that others may want to know what I was doing • Didn’t have much hope but figured why not offer • If you don’t offer they can’t buy
  15. 15. BETA PRODUCT • Created another beta program • Let five people in at $67 • Offered these people discounts on future courses I release
  16. 16. OVER THE SHOLDER COURSE CREATION WITH THE BLIND GUY • Thanks to yvon of freshoutlookcoache for her idea • Was “With A Blind Guy” • She made me change to “With The Blind GUY”
  17. 17. COURSE WAS CREATED TO SHOW PEOPLE HOW I CREATED THIS WORDPRESS COURSE • Has given me more leverage when conversing with others • And allowed me a chance to market another product to my customers
  18. 18. 3 THINGS I’VE LEARNNED • 1. course creation isn’t for everyone • People think they can do it quickly • And it can be done quickly • But if you don’t know what your doing often it’s not good to teach others at the same time
  19. 19. SECOND OF 3 THINGS • 2. create a course outline • Gives you a chance to know what your going to cover • Know that that outline will change • And hint, can be a free giveaway for people who you are chatting about with your course
  20. 20. BE OPEN WITH WHAT YOUR DOINGTHE THIRD THING • 3. Be open with what your going to do • Others can sign up for a waiting list • Or get your free outline • And you can have a list of people to market the course to when it’s released
  21. 21. TOOLS YOU NEED FOR COURSE CREATION • 1. AN LMS • Helps with producing your course • I suggest Thinkific
  22. 22. MORE THINGS YOU NEED FOR YOUR COURSE • 2. email marketing service • Either to capture subscribers waiting for the course • Or to follow up with your current customers • I suggest thinkific
  23. 23. FINAL TOOL FOR YOUR COURSE YOU NEED • 3. way of producing content • This can be screen capturing software, e.g. screenflow or camt • Your iPhone camra • Or your text documents/ppt’s
  24. 24. STEPS TO TAKE WHEN PRODUCING A COURSE • 1. figure out what you want to talk about • If you don’t “want” to talk about it • Just trying to make money with it • Make it eassier on yourself
  25. 25. WHO DO YOU WANT TO TALK TO • 2. who is it that is best surved by your course • For me it was blind small business owners looking to bring there webiste online • Then blind small business ownners looking to produce there first course
  26. 26. DO THEY KNOW? • Figured it out • Go whare they are • Produce free content to show you’re the authority
  27. 27. CREATE A MAILING LIST • while producing content as an authority • Give a CTA to join your mailing list
  28. 28. GET FEEDBACK OPTIONAL • Why I made this optional • What to get feedback
  29. 29. PRODUCE THE COURSE • Put this toward the end of the steps because • Feedback is going to help you build a better course
  30. 30. CONFIGURE AND SELL • Configure your course • Market it to the people who are on the list but didn’t buy • Optionally provide another discount for feedback • Then encurage to sell
  31. 31. FUTURE PLANS • Continue to revise course to make better • Don’t feel bad about increasing prices for future clients
