If you are an entrepreneur, freelancer, author, coach or career professional who has been struggling to figure out how to earn extra income on the side, or if you want to turn your passion into a full time income, then keep reading. Below, I’ll share with you the easiest solution to overcome all of these challenges by creating and selling valuable and profitable online courses. 

Are you tired of Sunday nights spent dreading the work week?

Do you dream of passive income from online courses, but keep talking yourself out of it?

 

Are you looking to get into online business but don’t know where to start?

 

Have you launched an online course, but aren’t getting the results you expected?

 

Whatever your background may be, if you’ve ever thought about turning your knowledge, your unique gifts and your passion into a profitable online course, then you’ve come to the right place!

 

Look — there’s no doubt that you have valuable insight to share with your tribe. But that doesn’t automatically guarantee that you can connect with them and get what you’ve created in front of them. And even if you do, there’s no guarantee that your course is packaged in a way that’ll engage them and convert them into buyers.

 

To do all of that — and make money — you need a lot more than empty promises and hot air.   

You need a plan.   

You need a step-by-step guide that will walk you through every aspect of creating a course for people that’s irresistible, valuable and — most importantly — profitable.
   

That’s exactly what this course is.

 

The Internet is full of “experts” — but most of them are wrong.

 

It seems like every day there’s a new training, free guide, or blog post promising that you can make a gazillion dollars if you just buy this product. There’s no shortage of training courses teaching the tactical tools and techniques to create and sell an online course.

 

While that’s extremely valuable and a necessary part of any course creation and promotion, just knowing the mechanics of doing something doesn’t guarantee you’ll be successful at it.

 

This missing component is the reason so many course creators fail at making their courses profitable.

 

This course is different — over 60,000 students is the proof.   
In the last ten years my husband Joe and I have been able to earn a generous multiple 6-figure monthly income running an online business and creating and selling online courses. By implementing the strategies I teach in this course, our courses to date have enrolled over 210,000 students.

All you need to create, launch and profit.   

This comprehensive training program provides absolutely everything you’ll need to successfully launch your own online business, courses and programs and profit from them.

From figuring out what you should be teaching to positioning, pricing and marketing, I’ll walk you through everything you need to know to create and launch a unique course that customers will happily pay premium fees for… and we’ll work together to do it, step-by-step.

  You won’t find anything here that hasn’t worked for me or my clients! This is hands-on, action-taking, make-it-happen training.

Welcome — You Belong Here!

So we'll walk through simple, effective methods to target and attract people who will be most willing to listen — and grow your audience the right way.
2
Attracting Your Ideal Buyers

One of the best ways to attract your ideal buyers is to show them that you’re the authority on their topic of interest. Someone who understands their situation well. And also holds the key to getting them to where they want to be.

If you can position yourself that way, then they’ll be seeking you out. They’ll go out of their way to get to know you, and find out if you’re the person who can help them.

And the best way to do that is through a purposeful and intentional content marketing strategy.

8
Using Authority Facebook Communities to Drive Traffic to Your Offers

Groups are some of the best places on Facebook to build lasting relationships – and of course building your audience.

Mainly because when people gather around a common interest, it creates amazing opportunities to share and connect. And in general, people join Facebook groups to learn something

The strategy that I’m about to walk you through is one of the main strategies I’ve used for myself and my clients to bring them leads on a daily basis.
