According to the Babson Survey Research Group, the number of people taking online courses in the U.S. has grown to 5.8 million, with every 1 in 4 person enrolling in some type of eCourse. Over the last 13 years America has seen a steady increase in online learners and there are no signs of this trend decreasing any time soon. So my question to you is this; If you are not offering online courses as a part of your business why are you willingly leaving money on the table?
I offered my first eCourse in October 2016. It was a 10 weeks telecourse on developing your self-confidence for female business owners and I charged $250. Ten women signed up and I made $2,500. Not bad to say the only "advertising" I did was on FaceBook to my connections. No ads and no emails.
Since then, I have offered a variety of virtual courses using platforms such as MailChimp, Zoom and Teachable, generating over $42,000 in revenue from this segment of my business in over two years.
But as I've experienced success in my business, I've also watched many professionals with an abundance of knowledge leave money on the table because they are not monetizing their expertise and knowledge. They are not tapping into the world of online learning which has shown a steady increase in users over the last 13 years. I witness entrepreneurs who are working hard, trying to see a million clients individually, instead of maximizing their time by offer online courses that would allow them to reach more people, make more money and utilize less of their time, allow them to enjoy the fruits of being their own boss. So guess what? I decided to do something about it.
I created eCourse Riches, a 6 weeks master class that will walk you through the steps of creating and launching your very own profitable eCourse.
