Online Classes – Should You Create a Course?
With our ever-growing online world, courses, classes, and trainings have made the jump to digital. A report published on global E-learning showed that this market is expected to reach $374.3 billion dollars by 2026! Makes sense why you should be thinking about creating a course of your own.
Why Create a Course?
Most businesses have something they are currently doing that they can easily switch to an online course. We have helped some of our clients do just that with online trainings, which takes some work upfront but then lets you reap major benefits as time goes on. Having an online course, class, or training lets you not have to focus on this part of your business because it can be fully operational all on its own, leaving more time for you to focus on other areas! Here are some other major benefits of creating an online educational program.
- Reach a Wider Audience: Creating your own educational course gives you the opportunity to share your knowledge with a wider audience. Going mobile gives you and others the freedom to learn from anywhere in the world!
- Earn a Passive Income: Passive income has become a bit of a buzzword lately. It is very appealing because it promises using little effort to make lots of money. Like we mentioned earlier, there isn’t much ongoing work after the time it takes to put it all together. You can sit back, relax, and earn some money! Check out our most recent podcast to learn a little bit about our more nuanced take on ‘passive’ income.
- Flexibility of Time: A major benefit of online classes is flexibility of time. Before turning your in-person class or training digital, you would have to schedule times to hold them and hope others can attend. This takes a lot of time to put together, and then, of course, a lot of time to hold them. That’s a problem of the past now that your clients can do it all on their own time!
- No Extra Costs: Without hosting in-person, you don’t need a space, you don’t need print materials, or food, or anything else that would be a normal part of your educational courses. Everything is online, so once you pay for the creation of the videos, that’s it!
Ready to Give it a Shot?
If you are ready to give online courses a try, here is what you need to do! Start thinking about what you already do that could be turned into an online program. It could be trainings for your clients, continuing education that your clients might need to do yearly, or maybe you can take classes you already teach in person and move them online.
