How To Make Money With A Digital Course

Start With A Solution
When you are working on a digital course, you can’t just throw anything out there. People are too smart to buy something that doesn’t have a solution to a problem. But most of the time the solution is to a problem they don’t even know they have. When I started to create The Organized Kids Academy, I was using my experience with my clients to create a course that would help teach their kids how to clean up and tidy after themselves. Basically putting myself out of business. But it was something that I have seen from countless clients who were in need of some help to get their kids to clean up. That is where The Organized Kids Academy came from. The solution to the problem they didn’t even know they had!
Get Your Audience Involved
So when I realized that I had the solution to a problem they didn’t know they had, I went straight to my source…my audience!! I took to email and social media to poll my audience to see what they were looking for. I asked open-ended questions to get their words to describe their situation with clutter and kids. I did phone calls with my audience to see what their pain points were when it came to keeping their homes organized with kids. I started a private Facebook group with questions that would help me create courses that met their needs. Basically, I got as much information from my audience as I could before creating the courses.
Create The Digital Course
I remember the moment I made my first sale on my very first digital course. It was the most satisfying feeling because all of my hard work had paid off. People were interested in teaching their kids how to organize. But courses are FAR from “set it & forget it.” It actually takes a ton of grit to build something people actually get results from.
