How do the most successful mediapreneurs make the bling and live an awesome lifestyle?
Because it is one thing to make a lot of money, but how much would that suck that in order to make that money you had no time to do anything else in your life? Meaning you are tied to a computer or working with people 24/7? That's not freedom. That's a problem.
What did I uncover?
#1: The top mediapreneurs create their own information product teaching step-by-step something they already know.
#2: The most successful mediapreneurs make the bling bling by creating & selling their own step-by-step Online Course
If you look at the top of your niche, meaning those with the
you will find more often than not they have an awesome online course.
A big question for you to think about (I had the same question):
With so many options out there to monetize, why have they all decided to go with online courses?
With so many options to monetize, why an online course?
Punches dollars for hours in the face
Creating an online course is HUGE leverage for your time. Instead of constantly trying to charge dollars for hours (which, as you know, is nearly impossible to scale and can fill up your schedule in a hurry), you do a bunch of work up front and then generate automated revenue 24/7...for years.
Packaging up & selling WHAT YOU ALREADY KNOW
You already know something other people want to learn from you. Right now. Seriously. Unlike other forms of monetization that might require you to go out and learn a brand new skill or hire people, an online course leverages what you already know right now.
You don't need a huge amount of buyers
Online courses sell at a premium (more than, say, e-books). Premium prices = premium revenue with less buyers needed. Heck, one buyer a day for a course you create that sells for $497 generates $181,405 a year (and that's just 365 customers!)
Positioning in the marketplace as an expert
It is awesome to be known as an expert. And having a blog, web show or podcast certainly helps position you as one. However, having a course compounds your expertise. More people will take notice of you and your work and your perception as an expert will definitely increase as a result of your online course...and that is GREAT for your business.
Big backend opportunity
Once you have your course out to the world and have the marketing funnel created (and I will show you exactly how to do this...don't stress about this yet!) EVERY TIME you are interviewed, get some delicious PR, write a guest blog, etc. you will be brining in more leads and more sales for your course. Sweet.
A few interesting "myths" about online courses:
"Who am I to teach something? I'm not an ‘expert'?"
"The technology is going to be hard/confusing"
"I need a huggggeeeeeeeee list of subscribers!"
"What I'm teaching isn't 100% unique or revolutionary"
"I have to sell a lower priced product first before a premium course!"
"I can't do this. It is too overwhelming/confusing/takes too much time!"
"My course has to be PERFECT."
This is where Create Awesome Online Courses comes in:
Imagine... Your course is created. Your audience is buying it like hot cakes and getting big results from your expertise. You wake up, roll over, check your phone and you've made a sale while you slept (no better feeling!)
That's when folks ask you "So, how do you make money?" you get to tell them about your kick butt course.
Not trading dollars for hours but instead bringing in $ 24/7 from something you ALREADY know (for years!) You have someone that has gone through this (with awesome results) to hold your hand through the process.
I'll tell you exactly what to do step-by-step AND keep you organized. Eliminate confusion, ambiguity. Completely concrete. Pretty cool, right?
You might be thinking: "Will this work for me?"
Here's what I can tell you:
Can I guarantee your massively epic results? (That would be a jerkface/sketchy move.) Obviously I can't guarantee exactly how much money you will make, BUT... I can give you the EXACT (and I mean exact) blueprint.
Create Awesome Online Courses is different. Lots of folks out there say "Go create a course," but they don't tell you EXACTLY what to do step-by-step.
Check out what one our subscribers, Umar said about his biggest struggle. He said he knows he wants to create a course, but he can't find anyone who says, "do this, step 1, step 2, step 3? instead everyone just says, "create one."
I've gone through all the "figuring it out" so you don't have to.
And that is exactly what you will be getting with Create Awesome Online Courses.
The exact proven step-by-step system. No confusion. No ambiguity. Complete hand holding. Telling you EXACTLY what to do and walking you through the entire process.
Create Awesome Online Courses is designed for mediapreneurs who have an online platform (might be a blog, web show, video blog, podcast, etc.) and an audience of some kind (doesn't have to be *huge* but definitely has to exist..like I said, I only had a few hundred people on my prospects list initially when I launched Create Awesome Interviews).
It isn't designed for folks that are just getting started, haven't launched their platform, have a negative attitude or don't want to put in the work. Simple as that.
