Six-Figure Online Training Business

5 Crucial Steps To  Creating a Six-Figure Online Training Business

“Build a business that serves your life purpose. What works for you, your clients and your life”

“Create an online course once, that keeps making you money for years”

1. Understanding the fundamentals of online courses

Your customers aren’t just buying information, they are buying a solution / transformation to help them achieve their goal or solve a problem.

  • Don’t create a course just to create a course or just to make money.
  • Give them the best method to solve their problem or achieve their goal.
  • Change people’s lives –>  Get Referral clients –>  Double profit
  • People are more willing to pay for a transformation than information they can get for free on the web
  • Information is free – If you just sell information your course is less valuable
  • Build an irresistible course that makes people want to buy
  • The most important thing is your online course must change people’s lives
  • Aim for the highest quality transformation
  • You will lose your credibility by not delivering
  • Make a damn good course

Create a Valuable Package

  • Stack the value high
  • Does it include coaching?
  • A 2 Day workshop
  • Facebook group to ask questions
  • Sell a mentorship program that includes an online course


  • one-on-one coaching
  • Buyin –> Core Offer –> Back end

2. Get super focused on a niche market

  • Ask them about their biggest challenges, fears, and frustrations
  • If you where to fix this for them, what would their future be like?
  • Always have sales in mind from day 1
  • By using our service, you will get your needs, wants and desires.
  • Find what you are passionate about

3. Create Your Content

How do you know what people want to learn?

  • Use Expectation Management
  • Do a live talk
  • Ask them what they want to learn more about and what kind of content they prefer to see in a course

What is the best format?

  • There is no best format. Whatever your market prefers is what you should use.

Never sell black box

  • Solves everyone’s problems
  • People won’t buy it
  • People don’t know what it is
  • Be clear
  • Not a marketing course. People will ask is it good for ….?
  • Sell a seminar marketing system, or a Facebook marketing system for a particular group of people.
  • Sell a specific solution to a specific niche market

How to create content

  • Camtasia
