How to create your own online courses

How to create your own online courses

I have done training now for more than 20 years. Selling chalk-time in front of a black board limits you. You only have that many hours in a day.

In 2008 I tried to get going with an open source learning management system (LMS) / platform. It did not work. I am technical; but this thing was really technical (and it did NOT look good). I closed it down after 3 months and lost a lot of money in the process. It hurts.

In 2011 I did a course on Gamification. Gamification relates to gaming and making it part of achievement within a company, app, or sport. There was 150 000 people on the course. The course was offered by the University of Pennsylvania; and done online. That is the power of online courses.

Fast forward; 2017. I got a call from Peter. He saw my LinkedIn course and suggested to take it online using Teachable. I was very impressed by the online course platform.

What took the longest was me doing the recordings. I recorded my screen while talking. The second course was a lot faster. Third even faster! Now there are 8 courses and we are planning more.

Here are some of the benefits:

  • Customization: You can customize and create great looking courses
  • Easy to use: Really easy to get going
  • Multiple course: You can add multiple courses
  • One-time payments: It has a built it payment processes
  • Subscriptions: You can use this as a membership site with monthly payments
  • One time up-sells: Offer up-sells

Here is how you are saving money when using Teachable as your online course platform:

  • Website hosting; you do not need it! You save on hosting
  • Landing page software; sales pages are created using the platform; no need to a website or landing page software
  • Checkout software; built in checkout; no merchant account needed
  • Video hosting; yes … they host your videos on fast servers; you do not need a video hosting account
  • Affiliate software; get people to market for you on commission (yes, built in); save on affiliate marketing software
  • Membership site software; get people to join on a monthly basis; included, no need for membership software

What I like the most is you can setup your school and THEN only pay when you go live! I setup a course in less than an hour! It is that fast and easy to do. Yes, like most things in life it takes some time to learn; but this was not hard at all.

If you are teaching people something; and selling your valuable time to do that; why not take it to the next level? You create your course once and sell it forever! It is like a product without an expiry date!

Not only no expiry date; you can sell 1, 10, 100, even a 1000 courses at a time … no limit! Now that is a scalable business! Open your account today! Click here.

You have ALWAYS wanted to start something … you can teach people something

… everything is Teachable
