Wouldn’t that be nice?
Work from home, wake up when you want and get paid what you deserve to be paid…
This is a dream for many people and was for me as well…
Until not too long ago when I did finally start working from home and making a full-time wage. It wasn’t easy and it took me a long time to get here but I finally am here and it feels great.
I want you to really imagine what this is like because I want you to achieve the success that I have and that’s the whole reason why I created this blog in the first place.
I want to show you that you don’t need to be an “expert” or a genius to work from home.
Anyone can start today and make money selling online courses IF you know how to do it the right way…
Why Online Courses?
This is one thing I want to talk about and it’s a question I get asked quite a bit.
Why sell online courses?
Why not put up advertisements, affiliate links, paid reviews ect….
With online courses you can brand yourself, earn 100% of the sale and each product you create sells your next product.
Remember that quote because it’s life changing.
You are also not reliant on other sources or players to determine how much money you earn on a regular basics.
Set up a website, funnel people towards your courses and if that traffic buys you have the potential to have customers for life.
No more relying on Google to send you traffic, or another online platform to “pay you.” Your customers will be paying you directly for your work.
By selling your own online courses and products you are in complete control and ownership of your business.
Easy to Deliver and Almost-Passive Income
Online courses are great because once you set them up you can easily deliver them to your students in whatever format you like.
Are you good with video? Sweet, create a series of videos and turn it into a course.
Don’t like the camera? Write a series of posts instead and make them into a course.
Don’t like ether or? Make an audio series and bundle that up and sell it as a course.
The possibilities are endless.
Once you get your funnels and traffic sources up and running you will literally be making sales as you sleep.
Every day I’m excited to wake up because there are sales waiting for me to look over.
All you have to do after is provide support when needed and you are good to go. I spend roughly 1 hour each day going through email and providing support usually while enjoying my morning coffee or cup of tea.
You Need Targeted Traffic To Sell Your Courses
This sounds all swell and dandy but it isn’t as easy as creating a course and sticking it up on your blog is it?
No, it’s not in fact this is where 90% of online content creators and bloggers fail.
In order to make sales you will need to find a way to get targeted traffic to your blog and then you will need to funnel that traffic to your online courses.
You will need to actually say “here is my product, it will do this and that for you and here is how you can buy it.”
In the beginning I used Udemy and YouTube to bring people to my Aweber list and then my list sent out a 7 day email sequence designed to sell my online courses, and it worked.
This is Important!
Without targeted traffic coming to your website you will fail. You will never make sales and your blog will sit on the internet collecting dust.
Trust me I know, I’ve been there. It took me many months to figure out how to sell my online course through trial and lots of error.
The good news is that anyone can do this, it does take work, but anyone can do it.
Before I end this introductory post to selling online courses I want to mention that I am currently in the process of creating my brand new course entitled “How To Make a Full-Time Income Selling Online Courses.”
This course isn’t out yet and won’t be for some time as I am still in the processing of creating it. But I just wanted to mention to to anyone who might be interested ;).
Stay tuned for more info!
