12 Myths About Creating and Launching Courses That I’ve Found to be Total Garbage

Today is one of my favorite days.

Because today we get to...take out the trash!

That’s right - we’re talking about all the garbage lies that people tell about building and selling online courses.

I can’t tell you how often I hear people giving advice online that I just want to scream “wait! no! Don’t listen to that - it’s just not true! I’m proof that you can do it despite the challenges!”

I know that those people are just speaking from experience, and I don't blame them for that.

But I do have an issue with people listening to other people’s stories and thinking to themselves, “oh well that person said I need to spend $5k on ads to launch, and I can’t do that, so I guess I can’t launch a course."

Or...

“Well so and so says that you need to hire a developer if you want a nice course website, I guess now isn’t a good time”. Etc, etc.

And that’s what pisses me off - that listening to this outdated or just outright wrong advice is stopping YOU from building and launching your course.

That’s where I draw the line.

So today I’m clearing up a lot of these myths. I’m telling you REAL examples of people who have defied these common myths to show you just how untrue they really are.

8 Ways To Keep Making Consistent Sales After Your Launch

Launching new products is fun. It’s stressful, crazy, and all-consuming - but always fun.

Having those big launches can feel like you’re on top of the wave. It feels good! You’re getting feedback. Sales are rolling in! Woohoo!

The part I don’t like?

The post-launch “dip”.

This is a real thing - people who build and launch products tend to feel a little bummed out after the launch. You have 10-14 crazy successful days - and then it just ends. And that can feel like a bummer.

Not only that - but after your launch, do you know how you’re going to keep making sales?
