Learning How To Create and Monetize An Online Video Course Without A Hitch
Online courses have become a popular go- to when you want to learn something new. Gone are the days that you consider taking a class at a community college or do an internship at a company to gain some knowledge about a certain industry. All you have to do now is do a quick Google search for an online course related to the topic you’re interested in. These courses are so thorough that you will get step by step instructions, tips, and downloadable guides. The fact that you get all of these from the comforts of your own home is the reason why it does so well (depending on the topic, of course) and why you should try it.
How do you start? Where do you begin? You could take a gander, or you could take a course and learn. That’s right, take a course to learn how you can create a course. And there are many helpful options and programs that are available so that people who have ideas for a good course but aren’t really sure how to execute it will be guided. Some will teach you about preparing your course, some tackle up to course creation, and some will offer step-by-step instructions, all the way to helping you create your own custom curriculum.
What You Need
Time to do: 5 weeks Time to see results: 1 month
Do your research. CourseMinded is very thorough but you will still need to research on the specifics of your course. Read more about the strategies and knowledge that you will get from the course.
Prepare the equipment you will need to create your own online video course, after doing the CourseMinded training.
Be prepared to work hard. The course is not a get rich quick scheme and doesn’t help or tell you how to do that. It just helps guide you through the hard work that you will need to do in order to succeed.
Consider other LMS. Teachable is recommended but they also cover other marketplaces and LMS like Udemy, Skillshare, Sensei, and the like. Find which works best for you.
Check on the competition. See what they’re doing right and wrong, and how you can do it better.
Make your content personal and use language that’s appropriate to your target audience.
Focus more on audio quality than video quality.
Practice your lecture and decide whether you will speak freely or have a script before actual filming.
Film in a place with no background noise and has good lighting.
Keep your videos relatively short.
Create a variety of ways for you to present like slides, animations, talking heads, and the like.
Building an audience will take time and earning your desired income the first month might not be as easy. You could earn $100- $300 if you’re starting from scratch, with no audience, list, or connections to work with. If you’re set on doing this full-time, put in the work and stay positive and passionate, and you could earn anything from $500 to $10,000 a month in regular income.
