5 Fail-Proof Strategies for Finding Your Profitable Course Topic and Idea

For the past few years, the majority of my income has come from online courses.

They are literally the perfect product.

  • Scalable
  • Passive
  • Fun to make
  • Premium pricing
  • have an impact
  • help more people

...the list goes on!

After years of being an entrepreneur - running businesses of all kinds (physical products, service businesses, design/architecture, consulting - all of it) - I discovered online courses.

And within months I was making more money with less work than ever before.

I’ve never looked back.

And now online courses are the only thing I’ll spend time building.

Online courses literally ARE my business.

Today, I’m going to show you how to come up with a profitable course topic idea. This really is step 1 in the process of creating and launching a course.

Episode 041: How To Make Money With Webinars

"How do you make money with webinars?"

When I tell people how webinars have benefited my business, they seem incredulous.

I’m making more in a week than most people make in a month with regular marketing methods.

But all these “numbers” - what do they mean?

I mean, do you have to already have a huge list to make this work? (hint: nope!). How many people can you expect to show up to your webinars?

Today I’m going to break down for you how I used webinars to "pre-launch" a product in about a month. I had an idea, a concept, and I was pre-selling. I was “gauging interest”.

Before and After: How 6 Course Creators Redesigned Their Websites for More Email Subscribers and Sales

“I don’t have a blog, can I still create a course or product?”

“I hate my website! It’s impossible to use. I can’t even edit it myself!”

“I want to start my online business, but step 1 is having a website and I literally have no tech skills and no idea where to start.”

For the past year, our readers and students have been telling us about their website struggles.

And we’ve been listening :)

So for a year, we tested and tweaked and optimized.

We studied what makes a website that converts.

Not a website that was “pretty” or “cool” - but one that actually converted MORE email subscribers and made more sales on autopilot.

How could we create the perfectly organized, optimized website just for course creators and infopreneurs like us? What would that look like?

The Truth About Passive Income: What it is, what it isn't, how to make it, and the systems you need to make it work

I realized that this is a topic that gets a bad rap - and has a lot of baggage associated with it. So I want to go into tons of detail about passive income and what that really means and how I’ve made it work for me. 

I firmly believe in “passive income”.

But I also know that product creation is the opposite of passive, and that many people who talk about this don’t know what they are doing.

10 Ways to Go From Blogger To Business Owner (without ads, sponsors, or tons of traffic)

If you’ve done my free course Build a Profitable Blog, you know that I am not a fan of putting ads in your sidebar or trying to monetize with affiliate links, because it dilutes your brand, clutters your site, takes way to long to make real money, plus a hundred other reasons.

So if I’m taking those outdated ways of monetizing your blog off the table, what are we left with?

How to Create Digital Freebies for Your Blog Readers

If you have been reading my blog or have gone through my free email course Build a Profitable Blog, you already know how important it is to be creating bonus content for all of your blog posts. We call those bonus downloads content upgrades, and they help you build your list (and make your readers happy!).

I've written before about how I design and create my PDF downloads and mini-eBooks in Pages, an application for Mac users. But I have gotten many questions about how you can create these gorgeous PDFs and downloads as a PC user as well.

So I called in my good friend Alisha to share with you how to create awesome PDFs and digital downloads for your readers. I'll let her take it over from here!

Running a successful blog isn’t always about you as much as we like to think that it is.

Our sole purpose here is to deliver amazing content to our audience & give them helpful resources that they can use in their journey.

This is what will make them come back for more, tell all of their friends how amazing you are AND make them trust you enough to buy your products & services.

I’m a creative & learn better when I can actually write out what I have learned.
