Why should you build your own course? I started Mums at Work as a way of female entrepreneurs and business owners to connect and help and support each other. We were successful in building a network group where women could get to know each other online and through events, and help and support each other. Ultimately, after getting to know each other, referring and recommending each other came naturally.
Then we created a members group, for members to take this further. We created an online directory to help them find each other when they needed a service, an events platform where they could share their events. We also blog about the members to help them tell their story. For regular event attendees, we created a discount code so they were rewarded for their attendance.
Then Covid-19 hit and it is astounding how businesses ground to a halt. Many of our members rely on events, workshops, craft fayres and other gatherings to conduct their business. Even on a one – to – one basis for consultants, reps, ambassadors etc were prevented from being to move forward. As business women who had created their brand to work around their families and lifestyle, this was a hard hit to the bank balance.
So I went back to basics to see how I could help. Originally, I created MAW to help women in business connect and grow their businesses. I loved connecting female business owners in our group setting as I knew we all had different backgrounds, experiences, skill sets and knowledge. With such a diverse group, I knew we all have a key to unlock a problem that others have.
Now, I am asking female business owners to put this knowledge online. Not for free. But to sell it so help others. And to create an income for themselves. This will help “Future Proof” your business and help you reach goals, no matter what restrictions are in place, now or in the future.
My mentor once said to me, “Your true business is what you know. You might not even know that you know it. But your friends and family know that you know it.”
We don’t always value the knowledge that we have because it comes naturally to us so we take it for granted. Or we have imposter syndrome relating to it because we had to learn it over a period of time. While we have now mastered it, our brains remember the time we didn’t know. It’s time to get over this.
What this video on how to build your own course. It’s available as a step by step guide as well.
This will let you see what inside the course marketplace looks like, as an instructor or as a student.
I have also included a couple of eBooks on Course Pricing and how to create and sell a course. I didn’t write them myself but I have included them as they are great free resources on the internet.
What’s the fees? There is no upfront cost. However there is a fee for courses that sell – this is set at 30%. If you don’t sell your course, it has cost you nothing. There is no monthly fee.
