What if I told you that you could overcome any tech challenges and create a beautiful, professional online course you’ve been dreaming about – not in months, but in just a few days?
While you may think such a promise sounds like a miracle, it’s really just the outcome of using the right tools and eliminating the unneeded complexity to produce a product that’s a true representation of the quality of your brand.
For years, I’ve been telling people about the crazy and unfair advantage that exists right now…
On the one hand you have the entrepreneurs that are putting their heart and soul into building a business working around the clock year after year… constantly hustling to win over more clients resulting in 10 mini bosses they have to report to… only to earn enough to keep the business afloat.
But then on the other hand, there are those who seem to have found a better way.
I’m talking about people who’ve created a business that works for them instead of the other way around.
They’re people who have the profit margins that allow them to hire A-players, to advertise wherever they want, and only work with who they want, where they want, as much or as little as they want.
These people have found a way to break free from the trading time for money trap by packaging what they already know into a scalable business asset that can be sold over and over again long after its created.
And this opportunity is available to every one of us but in order to make it a reality, overcoming technology is a necessary evil.
If you really want to achieve the dream about the lifestyle, freedom and money a leverageable online course can create, you’ll need to shift to using technology as a leverage and competitive advantage rather than allowing it to be something that holds you back.
But here’s the problem…
All too often aspiring course creators get stuck in the land of indecision – spending countless hours researching which membership platform, payment processor or email marketing system to use – and all of a sudden months or even years go by and they’re no farther ahead than when they started.
Trust me, I completely understand how overwhelming the decision can be because there are sooooo many options and the wrong choice can significantly set you back in time money and energy.
Not to mention the fact that once you do finally make a decision, you now have to figure out how to make everything work together.
So in attempt to help guide you along the way, here’s three important things you need to know…
Your memberhship site is the central hub of your course and brings everything to life. Therefore it should be built on a reliable platform that supports your business needs now and in the future.
All too often I see entrepreneurs agonize over which systems to use, and end up opting for what they think is the “easier” option. Only to find out that “easy”really isn’t that easy when the systems don’t support your needs.
True, there might be a little less setup in the beginning but when it comes to building a long-term business asset you need to think sustainability.
You need to build your course on a platform that you own – meaning your WordPress website.
Here’s 5 reasons why…
When you don’t own the platform your course is built on you have no control over that system. Things can change at any time like monthly costs, transactions fees, integrations, design and layouts among others.When it comes to a valuable business asset, I like to manintain as much control as possible and you probably feel the same way.
With 3rd party platforms what you see is pretty much what you get and you’re very limited with changes that can be made.
When you create your course on WordPress using a theme with a drag-and-drop page builder, it’s extremely simple and you get to design your course to look exactly how you want and you don’t have to use cookie cutter templates.
As your business grows and new technology is released there is a high probability that your needs will change in the near future. When your course is built on WordPress you have extreme flexibility to integrate with whatever you need instead.
Third party platforms either charge high monthly fees or they charge a transaction fee. That means that every time you make a sale you have to pay a certain percentage to them on top of the 3% credit card fees.
That starts to really add up.
Often times, after customers are finished with your course they want to keep learning from you. Adding a membershio option is a great way to add a recurring revenue stream to your business and increase the customer lifetime value. When you create your course on WordPress you have the flexibility to add on to your site anyway you choose.
LOVE IT OR HATE IT
As the competition in the online course market continues to increase, it’s becoming more important than ever to present your product in a way that establishes a high perceived value and provides an excellent user experience.
Before you may have been able to get away with uploading a few videos to a membership site and calling it a course but today, customers expect more.
Do not underestimate the power of design as it will play a vital role in your success.
SPEED OF IMPLEMENTATION IS
If there’s one thing for certain, speed to market is vital to the success of a business.
If you’re not launching, you can guarantee that one of your competitors are, and the longer you take to figure this all out the longer you’re delaying seeing an ROI.
With that said, selling a releasing a subpar course can be detrimental to your reputation.
So which is it… quality or speed?
The answer is both. But in order to achieve one without sacrificing the other you need to find a way to get more done in less time.
And unless you’ve somehow managed to get ahold of Doc’s time machine from Back to the Future, I’ve only found one way to compress months into days…
By learning from people who already know what you want to know.
See, there’s simply nothing that will move you forward faster in life than having the right coach to guide you along the way…
To prevent us from stumbling over the things we don’t know that we don’t know…
And having that person to call on to help when we screw up.
That’s why Olympic athletes hire the best trainers and why CEO’s of multi-million dollar businesses hire the top coaches.
Successful people invest in learning from the best.
They don’t waste time trying to figure it all out themselves because they realize this is just stalling their progress.
Instead, they put the time, money and energy it takes to achieve what they’ve set out to accomplish.
And this is where I can help…
SETTING YOURSELF UP FOR
After conducting some extensive market research, it was loud and clear that entrepreneurs were pleading for an all-inclusive solution for creating an online course.
And while there are other courses out there that teach you how to create a course the biggest complaint I’ve heard over and over was that the program just skimmed over the actual tech setup (which obviously is a very important piece).
So even after completing the course, they were still left in a tech nightmare.
At first I was so confused why all these courses on how to create a course just seemed to bypass the very thing that makes the course actually come together…
But after a little more digging, it made a lot more sense.
See, technology and software change constantly. New features are released, layout and designs change regularly, and all of a sudden that step-by-step video lesson that was made showing how to do something is completely outdated.
So what does that mean for the course creator?
Well, it means they have to recreate the content again and again.
So it’s no wonder the tech is barely covered in these programs. It’s just not worth their time.
Luckily for me, (and you) I have to recreate this training regardless because my agency designs courses day in and day out. Therefore, in order to onboard and train new employees, my tutorials can never be out of date.
Because of this, I’m able to go where others won’t…
See, my agency specializes in creating, designing, developing and launching online courses and over the years I’ve worked with some amazing entrepreneurs to help scale their business by turning what they know into a highly profitable online course.
Since this is the core focus of my entire business I’ve tried basically every membership platform and tool available just to make sure we’re staying on top of our game.
And after a ton of trial and error I’ve found what I consider to be my technology elixir because the ease of use and quality of the finished project is almost magical.
Here are just a few examples of some recent work…
And today I want to invite you to join me in an implementation program the first of it’s kind –
I’ll hand you everything you need to create a beautiful, professional online course on a platform that will support you now and in the future.

04/ Creating Additional Course Pages
HOW the COURSE WORKS
As soon as you join Course Creation Blitz you’ll receive access to all 4 modules. The course videos, worksheets, downloads and templates are all provided in a private members area.
Each module contains several video lessons, worksheets and assignments. Every video module also contains a checklist with the exact action steps you need to take. Simply click on the button and mark off what you’ve completed so you always know exactly what you need to do next.
This type of clarity is power!
You can complete the program at your own pace but if you want to power through it and you have the time to invest, I would recommend completing one module per day.
That means you would have your entire course up and running in 4 days!
The entire site displays perfectly on any screen size so you can participate from your desktop, tablet, or phone.
I’M HERE to SUPPORT YOU ALONG the ENTIRE JOURNEY
Sometimes concepts need to be talked through… or are better transferred through live communication. That’s why I’m including 4 live office hours so you never feel stuck or alone throughout this process.
Each live office hour will be focused around a specific module. The office hours are held over a virtual video Zoom meeting on Thursday at 2pm CST.
If you can’t make it to the live office hours, no problem! Simply submit your questions and links to anything you want me to review prior to the call and I’ll be sure to answer them.
Each call will be recorded and hosted in the members area.
Plus, you’ll receive access to the private Facebook community where, you’ll not only receive support from me, but also from a community of entrepreneurs who are all working towards the same goal.
With a few clicks of a of a mouse you’ll be able to unlock all the guidance you could ever want.
4 LIVE OFFICE HOURS!
COMPLETE PROJECT PLAN
Ever wish there was someone to tell you EXACTLY what to do step-by-step? The master checklist outlines every single step of the process in a downloadable pdf, a digital checklist, as well as a check list next to each module!
ONE CLICK UPLOAD PAGE TEMPLATES
In order to provide a superior user experience I truly believe that design plays a big role. In addition, it drastically effects the perceived value of your course. If you look like a pro, you can charge like a pro and people will be happy to pay because the quality justifies the price point.
I can’t begin to explain how valuable these templates will be to you and just how much time they will save you. These pages are structured in a specific way that is ideal for instructional design and are modeled after multi-million dollar courses.
Simply upload the page template in one click and then use the drag and drop builder to customize anything on the entire page like…
- Replace photos
- Change colors
- Change font size and colors
- Add additional content and elements
- Remove anything you don’t need
- And anything else your heart desires 🙂
