Lesson S1.1

Your Course Introduction

Your Total:

In this course we will cover everything that you need to start your own lucrative membership and the good news is that the platform that you need is free to start with.

For a beginner it is good news to know that you can start with truly little money to create your courses that you can sell to people that really need your expertise. This is the best time ever to become part of this new trend to offer courses, workshops, group coaching and even one-on-one consulting.

The best way to start is to do it in reverse order.

First you offer one-on-one consulting where you take people by the hand and help them to solve their problem. In this way you pick up all their objections and excuses they have and find ways that show them how they can overcome them.

You just need a few clients at first because you can charge a hefty price for such a done-for-you service.

This will prepare you for the next phase where you can offer group coaching in person. Again, this will give you the opportunity to see what works well for your clients and what problems they still have.

Ask their permission to film your sessions and you have the foundation for your online course. You can also then use these videos for virtual group coaching in the future.

Let us now look at what type of courses you can create.

Types of Online Courses

There are five main categories in which there will always be a demand for courses, workshops, coaching and consulting. People are no longer prepared to spend years at a college or university but would rather find a personal coach or mentor to help them achieve what they want.

Five Main Categories

  1. Health
  2. Wealth
  3. Relationships
  4. Hobbies
  5. Personal Development

Everybody wants to be healthy with lots of energy and to live long and happy lives with good relations and no money worries. People want freedom and to be able to do their own thing.

This is exactly where you come in to serve them. If you can give them exactly what they want, then they are willing to pay you whatever you ask. Since you must complete your course only once and can then sell it over and over, it is a very profitable way to add to your income and there are thousands of people who make a good living from it already.

Every one of us has gone through experiences in life that taught us ways to overcome problems or in which we were able to acquire new skills that we can teach others. There is something that you can do easily while others struggle with it and if it is your passion, then you will enjoy teaching it to others.

My wife and I lost our eldest daughter in a hit-and-run accident when she was only twenty years old. Especially my wife can now assist people who have lost children.

My younger daughter has twin daughters that are five years old now. She can help parents expecting twins to prepare for their arrival.

You might have also gone through some trauma and were able to recover and can now help others to cope with it better.

Some of you might have hobbies that you can teach others about. There are thousands of possibilities open for you to explore. It is not only about the money, but it might give you much joy to assist others with your knowledge, skills, and knowledge.

Zig Ziglar had this famous saying that if you can help enough people to get what they want, you will never have to work another day in your life.

By creating your own course, you will be able to assist thousands to get what they want. In the process you can earn whatever you want. It will not be easy but with consistent effort and by following this course you will succeed.

All you need to do is to supply a solution to a problem, relieve pain or to offer a dream outcome to somebody that is eagerly searching for the answer.

Your Assignment for Today

Today you must decide what your main idea for your course will be.

Write down all the ideas that you have. Just list them all. Think about the person who will benefit the most from taking your course. How can you help them?

Now think about which idea will be easy to write about. Give yourself some time to think about it in detail. Google to see if there would be interest in your topic. Sleep over it and let your subconscious mind ponder it. It has always worked for me if I cannot find a solution to a problem – sleep on it.

Many people have several ideas and cannot make a choice. You must make a choice because you should focus on a single idea first. Remember that you can always create more courses once your first one is a success and will start earning you money.

Once you have made up your mind then sit down and write out in a single sentence what problem your course will solve for your student. You may send me an email with your idea and what it aims to solve, and I will tell you what the probability will be that it can become a successful course.

Send your email to info@mattmare.co.za and I will personally contact you.

Today we have covered how you can help people by creating an online course and I have given you some ideas of what you can teach. You need not be a teacher to help people. All you must do is tell people how you have solved a problem and how you can help them to avoid the mistakes you made. Your course will be the bridge that they can use to reach the other side much faster.

What is Next?

Next, we will discuss the planning and outline of your course.

Thank you for your time and I am certain that you will have the main part of your course ready within days. Remember that it need not be perfect the first time but that it is more important to get it out there to see what works. You can always edit it as you gain more experience.

As you can see from this first lesson, I am not even writing in my first language but with the help of the spelling and grammar checker you may still understand what I am trying to show you.

Tomorrow we will go into more detail of how to plan your online course so that you can serve your audience well. It is all about how you can solve a problem for them and how they can get early results. The sooner that you can help them to get the desired results, the more they will trust in you and when they get their dream outcome, they will start to do the marketing for you.

They will tell all their friends about you and how you helped them. Delighted customers become life-long loyal clients that will eagerly buy all your programs. You may even start your own membership to which they can subscribe and pay you a monthly fee.

The only thing you need to do is to decide that you can do it and together we will be able to create a masterpiece. Your success is my motivation!

I believe in you, and I am waiting to hear from you soon. I never thought that I would be able to do it myself and today I am teaching others how to make a success of it. If I can do it, then you can as well or even better…

As soon as you move on to the next lesson, you’ll receive another star. For each lesson that you complete, you’ll receive stars. The more stars you gather, the higher you’ll be placed on the leader board.

See if you can become a winner.
