Passive income is an amazing way to grow your business. It still amazes me that I can wake in the morning and see someone is getting my help through one of my online courses. And it’s easier to set up then you think.
Two ways to get started
Some people say to write the content for the course first and then sell it. Others say to sell the course and then create the content. I fall somewhere in the middle. I say start creating the content and selling the course. If you get sales before you are ready, just create a start date and release lessons on a daily or weekly basis as you are creating the content.
Create your platform
There are two ways to do this as well. You can use a plugin on your wordpress site. Or you can use a site like Teachable. Teachable is super easy to set up and get your course going, but they do take a transaction fee so that is something to consider.
Be patient and don’t give up
The build it and they will come method doesn’t quite work. Anyone in business can tell you that. You need to spice it up a bit. You need to work everyday at it. As many hours as you can spare. Grow your network and your list. Get to know people. If your course isn’t selling, ask people why not. Don’t be afraid and don’t get discouraged. All of these successful courses you see online took time, effort, hard work, sacrifice, and more. The important thing is to NEVER give up, Keep going. Get it done. Work at it. Make it perfect. And most of all, have fun!
