One of the best ways to make money online if you are a blogger is to offer a course through your blog. You might be thinking…”how do I create a course that is both engaging and interesting?” “How much should I charge for the course?” “When is the best time to launch a paid course?” And so on. But before you think about offering a paid course, why not start your first online course for free?
In today’s podcast episode, we will discuss why it is important that the first online course you put up in your blog should be free of charge. Get to know when is the right time to create an online course, what your free course should look like, and when you should offer a paid course. Learn that growing an audience and building trust play an IMPORTANT role in the success of your first ever online course.
“Be patient, experiment with the free course and you can just take your lumps there. Be strategic and really focus with your course whenever you come out with it. It got to solve one particular problem and going to be really detailed to that one problem. If you do those things, you’re going to be far better than throwing out there paid courses and kind of embarrassing yourself along the way…” – Bobby Hoyt
