Help! No one is finishing my online course!

“Mariah, no one is finishing my online course. I’m pretty sure it sucks. What should I do?”

I hear this all the time.

My clients (especially the ones that are running their online courses for the first time) often come to me worried that their students aren’t moving as quickly through their content as quickly as they would like...and it makes them feel like there is something wrong with the course itself.

When your students aren’t finishing your course, it’s easy to think that 

a.) your course content sucks and 

b.) you have to change what you’re offering and add tons of new distractions to incentivize students to log in.

That’s the wrong way to think about it.

It’s normal to have people not finish your online course and go through 100% of every single video.

It’s normal to have people take six weeks, six months, or six years to finish your online course.

Most of the time, people not finishing your course has nothing to do with whether or not your course content is good. 

On this episode of the podcast, I’m talking about what you should do when your students are not finishing your online course.
