Is creating online courses for educators on your to-do list? Maybe you are thinking I haven’t got that far yet because I’m swamped with all the required to-do’s of my day job (hello classroom teachers, I see you!) Let me tell you a story about that one time I decided to take a chance on my ideas. Because although I enjoyed the process, I was frustrated by my choices.
I remember being on the new textbook committee for 6th grad ELA when I first got started teaching. I had no idea what I was looking for when I walked into our professional learning classroom. We had 4 companies there to teach us about their books and their learning programs. I actually really enjoyed the process of picking out the textbooks for our students but what I quickly realized is that it wasn’t a one size fits all solution.
But, they were still missing the most important part of education in my eyes.
They didn’t address topics that brought me closer to my students.
Those that taught me how to live in harmony with them, how to love them, teach them, and help them grow.
If you were to ask me the #1-course tip I had for any teacher wanting to make a side hustle income right now – it would be to find a course topic that you are passionate about. One that you can talk about all day, every day! And then figure out how to intertwine that idea with relationship building between teacher, student, and parent and you’ve got yourself a six-figure program.
Now I know you are going to ask me how can I do it all when I am teaching full-time. How can I grow my craft when I am swamped with classroom requirements, my answer to you is are you ready to create a life you love? One you are passionate about and know is the way toward your own limitless success.
Will it be easy? Maybe not. Will it be empowering? Heck yes! Will it be worth it? An even bigger heck yes! You are worthy of this life and the success you are ready to embrace. So let’s get to creating those online courses for educators.
I’ve used a few over the years. Those that help with email marketing, landing pages, podcasting, lead generation, organizing it all. But piecing it all together is an even bigger hassle when you are trying to learn the newest lesson-planning too. Or you have just been given a whole new text to apply by the end of the quarter (insert reading, math, science, etc.).
So basically my search history was how to simplify that process. That’s when I found Kajabi. It’s an all-in-one platform that allows me to do all of the above (landing pages, lead generation, email marketing, course development, etc. in one place. Simplified systems are the key to any growing success.
Digital courses usually have higher ticket offers. Basically, this means that you can make more income as you sell your course than if you sell only printable resources and lessons! A lot of people want easy and quick money, but this is NOT that. Online course creation takes hard work and dedication.
Creating an online course for teachers will provide you with a more sustainable income.
