The popularity of online courses continues to grow exponentially. For example, Udemy.com has over 13million students. That number was approx. 2 million when they got my attention 3 years ago.
To me, an online course is the modern day equivalent of having a book. Yes, I know, publishing a book is still a great way to increase your profile and positioning so why not do both.
If you have already written an (instructional) book you have the script for a few courses. If you create an online course, you have the cornerstone of a great book.
You should also consider that most books take 12 to 18 months to write and sell for between €10 and €30. Plus, you have to distribute it to shops to get any meaningful sales,
An online course, on the other hand, can be created in a week and can sell for between €50 to €2,000. Plus, there is no distribution required and you get the students name and email for further upsells.
I live in Carrick on Shannon (West of Ireland) and I want to stay here so this was a great option for me. I am passionate about my children, my work, mindfulness and music. I can’t leave the house without making my bed.
For the past 9 years, I have been delivering courses in Digital Marketing. A few years ago I realised my training and consultancy business had a fundamental flaw – exchanging time for money is the worst exchange rate in the world.
Furthermore, I was travelling as much as I was training which was a waste of my time and money. Yes, I know it’s a necessary evil but it disappears when you start training online.For example, I sold 22 copies of my first online course before I even had it created. I picked a launch date a month ahead. 22 x €197 put €4,334 in my bank account in a matter of days. No travel, no time away from my children, no overtime, no expenses. I recorded the course in a week and it generated over €10,000 in sales and transformed my business and my life. I got read of the fundamental flaw and created a freedom business.
Imagine how this could transform your business. More time with family and friends. More time to upskill. More time for hobbies. More time & money to see the world. More clients in more destinations than ever before. So, whether you are just starting out or already have a course and want more sales, I can help.

There has never been a better time to start. With the exponential growth in popularity of online courses has come the surge in free and inexpensive tools to create them. The selection and power of these tools in mindblowing. From webinar and screen capture tools to learning management systems and email autoresponders. Not to mention the ability to make HD videos with your phone to studio quality microphones for less than €100.
Granted, there are a few things to learn along the way but I can assure you it is worth it. I thought ‘money while you sleep’ was a myth until it actually happened for me. I can guarantee you it is life-changing.
