Utilising Social Proof to Sell More Courses

Utilising Social Proof to Sell More Courses

Content Marketing Ideas to Lead People to Your Course

Once you’ve got your course up and running, your next step is to market it. Getting your marketing right is what will draw an audience to your course and content marketing is one of the best ways to lead people to purchase your course.

It’s important to remember to not just rely on one form of content marketing – your audience, depending on what they need, and who they are, will respond to marketing differently. To lease the largest number of people to your course, you need to utilise a variety of options.

An exercise for when you feel you’re not good enough to teach

An exercise for when you feel you’re not good enough to teach

It happens to all of us, and not just to teachers either. It happens in all industries. But it hits particularly hard for teachers, those moments of doubt. “Who am I to teach this? Why should I be teaching?”

We feel our responsibility to our students is greater than our belief in ourselves.

So I want to delve into that. We all need this reminder now and then, you are good enough to teach!

In this episode, I’ll share with you mindset exercises that will remind you that you actually know your stuff and you are good enough to teach what you want to teach.

Using Lumen5 for memorable text Based Videos in your courses

Using Lumen5 for memorable text Based Videos in your courses

Your course needs to be visually appealing to attract students in the first place. Once they’re enrolled, you need to retain their interest and make sure they retain information you teach them. You do that through videos.

Studies over the years show that video improves our ability to remember concepts and details. Video makes things easier to recall. The human brain processes imagery 60,000 times faster than text.

As if that doesn’t confirm the need for your course to be in video format, video isn’t even something flashy. It’s the new normal. People expect to consume content as video.

Reducing Failed Payments with Richard from Stunning

Reducing Failed Payments with Richard from Stunning

Failed payments are a pain. They stop you from growth, they stop you from moving forward with your next course offerings. The passive income you were aiming for with your courses is suddenly no longer passive because you’re actually putting in more work chasing payments.

In this podcast, I had a great interview with Stunning founder Richard Felix. We talk about ways you can reduce failed payments. A lot of these are unintentional. Your students aren’t being delinquents. The payments might be failing due to circumstances outside their control, like bank fraud protection, expired cards, and so on.
