    • All The Successful Biz People Are Offering Online Education (Follow what works)

 

So ladies and gentlemen, let’s get this party started and dive right into each of those amazing reasons on why you should build your online course right now.

Don’t reinvent the wheel, just realign it. – Anthony J. D’Angelo

I have created an entire mini-course on how to build a strong foundation for your online course. If you would like my help nailing down the one-course idea which sells, you can sign up here for my mini-course “Get your course idea kick-started”. 

This course consists of five learning modules (MP3 and MP4 format), five interactive workbooks which will help to guide you through step by step to build a strong online course foundation. There are also some surprise pieces of content along the way. 😉

 

1. The Market Demands Your Digital Class Right Now ($375 BN Industry by 2026)

It’s not a secret anymore that the online education industry is predicted to become more than a $1 billion industry PER DAY by 2026. And this prediction came out before the corona crisis. Read this again. 

 

So this by itself should already be reason enough why you should feel encouraged to create an online course. The market is demanding it now more than ever and that trend won’t go down any time soon, especially considering the current global circumstances.

 

So why would you miss out on grabbing a piece of this market share? Start focusing on the right things, pivot if necessary or add a digital course to your product suite and follow the market trends.

Do It The Right Way From The Start

2. You Can Create a Somewhat “Passive” Income Stream When You Teach Online Courses (Create The Course Once, Sell It Forever)

 

Newsflash: 100% complete passive income doesn’t exist, I have yet to discover it. But the good news is when you teach online courses, you generally create the product once and it’s done. Unless your online course is on a topic which constantly changes (e.g. marketing), then I highly suggest you update your content regularly for obvious reasons. 

 

Once the course is ready and produced, you then move on from there and put all your focus on marketing and selling your baby. 

 

This is why it’s such an attractive business model to many. Produce (ideally) once and keep selling it forever.

3. Starting An Online Business Is Pendamic Resistant (No Matter How Many Times The Virus Changes)

 

Take a yoga studio as an example. When the pandemic hit, they weren’t able to provide classes in person and many saved their business moving it online. 

And the amazing news about that was, now they could even sell more spots than ever before because they took the limitation off their classroom. There are only so many people you can fit into a physical yoga studio, whereas Zoom offers unlimited spots. All you gotta do is upgrade your virtual membership. 

But not all businesses out there were able to do that and many went bankrupt. 

 

If the world falls apart, and it kind of does every 6-10 years as we experience economic crashes (which you can’t avoid and run away from), you can be sure your online course business will survive.

 

Have you been a therapist, teacher, consultant or a coach and have been seeing clients offline pre Corona? Well, now it’s the best time to start an online business and set up yor online course empire so you can serve even more people than you have ever before. They need you!

 

And for those who aren’t coaches yet, you can very quickly become one.

4. Become Location Independent (Work From Anywhere)

Yepp, you can just pull out your laptop and start your workday from the beach or simply from the comforts of your home if you wish to do so. 

 

Location-independent freedom is probably one of the most attractive benefits which come with being an online course creator. All you need is a laptop and a stable internet connection. Period.

 

The people who complained about “working on the internet isn’t a real job” are the ones which are out of work right now. I have been living an international lifestyle and working online since 2012 now and I can tell you, it is a real job and sometimes even more challenging if you travel around a lot. 

 

Despite travelling from country to country, it’s amazing how much time you can save not commuting daily to any office location across town. You will have so much more time at hand which you can reinvest into building your business or simply spending with friends and family.

5. Work Less And Have More Time (Automate As Much As Possible)

Another amazing thing about online courses is, that you can outsource and automate most of the tasks which happen behind the scenes. 

 

Anything that can be handled by software should be automated and you should not spend a second fulfilling any of those tasks yourself.

There are amazing tools out there that will help you automate most of your happenings behind the scenes. 

 

 For example: 

 

  • ConvertKit is a great funnel builder which triggers email sequences automatically once someone downloads your freebie 

 

  • ThriveCart is awesome to collect payments, to set up an affiliate system and to automatically let One-Time-Offers expire. It’s also integrable with Thinkific, which lets students enrol into your programmes on autopilot once they paid you via ThriveCart 

 

  • Tailwind is awesome to schedule your Pinterest pins and to show you very valuable data about your account 

 

  • Jarvee helps tremendously automating any other social platform

This course consists of five learning modules (MP3 and MP4 format), five interactive workbooks which will help to guide you through step by step to build a strong online course foundation. There are also some surprise pieces of content along the way. 😉

6. Serve More People On a Larger Scale (Online Courses Are Scalable to The Moon And Back!)

Since you have kind of cloned yourself into an online course, you don’t have to repeat yourself over and over again to your clients. You can simply share your video content with many more people and let them go through the content in their own time, which means less work for yourself. 

 

If you are a coach or a consultant, you can also use your online course content to serve any new client as a form of “onboarding” or as an “introduction” to your services. It basically serves as your “core” or “signature” content which any of our clients have to go through in order to understand the fundamentals of whatever it is you are teaching them. 


You will be amazed at how many questions people have for you, which can be simply answered in your main course, which will eventually save you countless hours of repetitive teaching. You will have more time to either focus on deeper coaching with your students or spending the spare time you have elsewhere. 

Not sure where to start?

You have a skill, hobby or expertise which you would like to put into an online course so you can serve more people on a broader scale and make bank while you sleep? Great!

7. Position Yourself As An Authority In The Space (Amazing For Brand Building)

Claiming you are an expert in something and not having an online course to offer will make you look like an amateur nowadays. 

 

Why? Because people want to see that you have studied your craft inside out. Knowing about a topic is one thing, but creating content about it and actually teaching it in a way so that students will get results is a completely different story. People will look at you in a completely different way. 

 

You can look at it as your new business cart. Having an online course which teaches people a topic in-depth positions you in the market as an authority and makes you stand out from your competition.

8. All The Successful Business People Are Offering Online Education

 

Yep, may this be Grant Cardone, Tony Robbins or Arianna Huffington. All the “successful” business people out there offer online classes. And what does this mean for you? 

 

Don’t reinvent the wheel and follow what works. If all the famous business people are offering at least one digital class, if not an entire series of online courses on their expertise, that means it’s working out for them very well. And it can work out for you too.
