“Teach everything you know.” It’s one of the tenets we live by at ConvertKit. We believe it’s the way to gain authority in your core topic and the trust of your audience.
You’ve got experience and skills that people need to know about! You’ve got something valuable to teach, and one of the best ways to do that is by creating online courses.
Creating online courses has so many benefits for you and your audience. For them, it’s a handy, timely, and effective medium to access at any time to buck up on the topic at hand. For you, it’s an excellent way to create another revenue stream with your blog. So not only are you serving your audience, you’re also creating an arsenal of educational material for your shop.
There will always be one piece of content that subscribers will value and will pay for, and that is an online course. Education on all levels is perceived to have a high-value. And while people pay thousands of dollars to take courses from colleges and universities, with the ease and convenience of online courses, many people are searching Google to find ways to fill in their continuing education needs.
If you’ve built trust and credibility with your audience, they will look to you as well to teach them on your topic. Once you find yourself in this position of authority, you have a tremendous ability to add to your revenue streams with online courses.
Online courses can be a fast way to monetize your blog. You can easily generate passive income if you already have an audience and have content. Of course, if you’re just starting out as a blogger there is a lot of hard work that must first be done to grow your audience, gain their trust, and then actually create your online courses.
Whether you’re just getting started blogging and want to work toward creating online courses or if you’re a seasoned blogger ready to add in a new revenue stream, this Toolkit is filled with information to help you learn more about pricing your online courses and how to sell them on your blog.
But before you sit down to your computer and start typing away at modules and video scripts, you should make sure you have a solid foundation to build off of.
As successful as online course creators can be, it’s not all easy passive income and rave reviews. You need to be ready to sacrifice and work really hard to create something worthy of your students time, trust, and money.
It’s hard work and you need to show up every day to do it right. Your students will be able to see right through you if you don’t. So do the work and don’t take shortcuts. Create something that will bring value to your student’s lives.
By creating online courses, you’re investing in your audience so they can reach their goals and investing in yourself by creating a new stream of income. It’s a win-win!
