Everywhere you look online today you see online courses that offer anyone who has a little time and money the chance to gain a new skill. The question that you may have is, why are online courses so popular – well its because the ‘shortpath’ the learning curve to any subject!
- There is NO commute to a physical classroom!!
- No dealing with traffic!
- Or people you do not like!
An online course allows anyone, no matter how busy they are, or where they are in the world the ability to learn and maybe from you, something did they not know before.
Let me share with you five reasons why you should be creating your own Online Signature Course.
1) People are Looking and Need Help and You Can Provide It
People go on the internet to find information they need, most are already searching for a solution to a problem.
If you can offer a solution, they’ll throw money at you!
Address a need of your target market and teach them how to fulfill or solve it.
This benefits them but it also benefits you by building a relationship with your target market – you position yourself as the authority on the subject matter.
After people take your course, they’ll continue to follow you and they may take future courses.
2) You ARE an Expert!
It is said that if takes 10 thousand hours to become an expert in any subject.
I am here to tell that while may hold true for some professions, it not always the case. In some, you only need to be two steps ahead to teach someone else.
Right now, you may not feel like much of an expert. What on earth can you possibly teach people? But if you think about it, there is a great deal of knowledge you’ve gained through your experiences, education and knowledge.
This is knowledge you can easily teach others (and you can research to fill in any gaps). You’ll become the go-to for information for your audience, and their go-to when they need your products or services.
3) Catch up (or Surpass) the Competition
There is a good chance none of your direct competitors are running online courses for their customers.
If they aren’t, this puts you in a unique position. Among the competition, you’re more than just another business but also a valuable learning resource.
This gives you a tremendous competitive advantage. If your competitors are already offering online courses, it’s even more essential that you start doing so as well.
Find a unique angle or a unique approach to what you’re teaching to set your course apart. This is your Online Signature Course.
4) Profits Now and in the Future
You can sell your online courses and profit from them.
There are free courses available online, as well as a great deal of free information, but if you can provide real value, offer something unique, and market your courses well, you can charge a good price for them and you’ll see enrollment.
Even better, you can use your online courses as a way to build future profits as your courses build a relationship with your audience.
Even if you offer a free course, you’ll establish yourself as an expert and trusted source of information.
There are many ways to profit from online courses, including running a short free course that leads to a longer premium course.
You can also build a passive income by creating courses that students can take at any time and that are run mostly through automation.
5) It’s Easy
It’s much easier than you probably imagine creating and running an online course.
It just takes a bit of organizing and preparing.
You can research to gather whatever information you need to fill in knowledge gaps.
Your online course will exist and be managed on a platform specially designed for courses. And once you run one course, it gets much easier to do the next.
Online courses offer a great way to reach your audience and if you’re not doing it now, you’re missing out on a great opportunity.
