3. Stop reading about it. Taking action is the best teacher! …The more I studied, the more overwhelmed I became. I finally stopped worrying about it… – David Wallimann, Guitar Playback
4. The number one tip I would give to course creators is start building your list immediately. – Fleur Ottaway, Venture Digital: Get Results from Your Facebook Ads
5. Do not prepare an online course for selling. Create an online course for what you love to do and then sell it. You will earn a lot if you tell a topic that you love to do. – Resit, Master of Project Academy
“…it’s a heck of a lot easier to create—and sell—a course on that topic than it is if you’re throwing a course together just because you can.”
“…you’re going to be up against powerhouse course creators and learning platforms like Skillshare, LinkedIn Learning and more…make sure you’re creating a tangible, results-driven course.”
“you need to be willing to try and fail as fast as humanly possible…That means you need to sell your course idea before you’ve even built it…Create a sales page that demonstrates a clear value and start putting it out there…”
I’ve been spending lots of time checking out MasterClass’s greatly expanded offerings since my wife bought me a James Patterson writing course. One of my discoveries–its targeted sets of topic-based videos.
I was going to post this here and at my inventwithwords site next week, but I’m going to squeeze this in today to promote their 2-for-1 annual membership offer through Nov. 30. (Nope, not getting any $$ for doing this. Just wanted to pass this along. I’m inches away from ordering myself, as it opens me up to gift my friend with free year of all their courses.)
Prices Increase When Timer Runs Out. As of this writing, I have 18 minutes to opt-in before prices rise.
Okay, my time ran out…The prices did increase from $47 to $77 for the All-Access Pass and $97 to $127 for the Power Pack.
A reminder: I’m not affiliated with the Summit. Just passing along info and opportunities.
**A thought: I know some folks who use their screen recording software to record the sessions for later viewing. Again, just a thought.
Some of the bonuses offered IF you upgrade to the Power Pack:
DAY RATE QUICKSTART BUNDLE
JUST PRESELL IT
LAUNCH SECRETS ROADMAP
WEBSITES THAT MAKE MONEY WORKSHOP
THE 5 KEY ELEMENTS OF AN OUTSTANDING ONLINE COURSE THAT’S GUARANTEED TO SELL
So, if you have a little loose cash and some time on your hands, it would seem you could easily earn back the price of admission with a few of the sessions and bonuses tailored to your needs. OR, like me, just show up and watch, take notes…
**Another thought…would be interesting to set up a Zoom session with some others and ‘attend together’ on another screen.
Here is the blurb: “Learn skills and listen to examples from world-renown entrepreneurs and innovators as they discuss the parallels between the creative and entrepreneurial journeys — and why entrepreneurship, much like music or creativity, is something we all possess.”
“The course approaches entrepreneurship as a creative process, a fundamental human instinct that we all possess and can unlock. Creativity & Entrepreneurship applies concepts from the creative and musical creation process, such as observing, prototyping, iterating and embracing failure, as a means of guiding you through the concept of thinking like a startup. You will develop the basic mindset, knowledge, and insights required to pursue an entrepreneurial career, whether as the steward of your own career or as the founder of a new business in any field.”
