If you have an idea for a course, the first thing to do is create a small email-based course on general topics in your field of interest and promote it to see what kind of interest there is before you create or hire a freelancer to create. a full course. Online course for you. This mini e-course should be 5-7 days long and cover the topic from a 30K foot perspective (an overview), thus covering the topic completely but not going into the details. cover.
You should also create a series of 5 or 6 promotional emails that you will send to prospective students to see if they are interested in said course. If it takes the entire series of promotions to get someone to sign up every time, you may want to rethink your themes or see if you can get a better focus before continuing.
After creating a short email course on the topic, you are considering creating a course for which you can take the following steps to determine interest in the course and whether or not you are addressing the key areas. This is the best way I know to ensure that there is interest in the topic you want to teach and that people value the type of information you are going to offer.
Make sure every email ends with a [signature] this is meant to be replaced by an actual signature phrase. Something or inspirational that you can use to end every memorable email. Most email services (auto responders) can auto-complete this field.
Also include the [Link to sign up page here] tag to be replaced with the link to the one-time registration web page or the link your email service provided to the registration form you created for the email course. Again, something provided by most email services.
If these steps are challenging for you, remember that most (auto responders) like AWeber, GetResponse, and MailChimp have video tutorials on how to do these things, so that should be your first course of action. Or you can probably hire a freelancer who can do it for you (for a fee).
The promotional emails you created are used to gain e-course subscribers and are emailed as needed. You’ll need to keep drafts of them in your computer’s email program so you can email them to people every day through BCC after making your daily list of interested people from visiting forums, groups, blogs, Facebook, Facebook groups, and professional association websites full of people you’ve determined should be interested in your eCourse based on their activity.
You can find these people by doing Google keyword searches, Twitter hashtag searches, Facebook group name searches, setting up Google alerts for keyword phrases, and searching industry trade documents. It then searches these results for email addresses. With those email addresses, you build your list of potential candidates and then send them an email or blind copy one of the promotional emails. Keep working randomly through the list until you get to the last 2.
If you get to 5 promo email or bonus promo email, then it’s time to remove those email addresses from your list and move on. Once people start signing up for your e-course, you should be on the lookout for their feedback and constructive criticism. This knowledge is invaluable when refining and building your entire e-course.
I’m not sure how I can make it any clearer than that. By following this system, you should be able to find out if there is enough interest in your course material to spend time and resources creating a full course.
