Is there a shortcut to creating my course so I don’t get stuck?

Our main recommendation is to start with one of our done-for-you courses for Business Coaches.

We would love nothing more than to streamline your course creation process.

From brainstorming the ideas, to mapping out the curriculum, to creating the handouts, and then of course all of the marketing material too, we invest thousands so you don’t have to!

We know you can get stuck at any stage, but why? We’ve done the work for you.

We’ve got many topics ranging from journaling to vision boards to goal setting to money empowerment and more!

You can see just a few of our done-for-you courses here:

What if I can’t find a done-for-you course on the business topic that I want to teach? 

If you have a topic that you’d like us to create a course about that is geared towards business and for entrepreneurs, you can suggest it here. We review these quarterly.

Or you can click here to contact our help desk to see if we have an older course that is no longer listed on the site that may need some updating but has all the bones in place for you to take it and create something awesome.

I’m going to try to do it myself. What can I do to ensure I don’t get stuck creating my course and that it is a success? 

In that case, if you are creating your course by yourself, from scratch, we highly recommend you check out the Course Launch System from our friend, Cindy Bidar.

We also have a My Course Content Planner that you can use to brainstorm and get started.

Can I just hire you to create my course for me? 

We don’t do that. Sorry. But, we know who does!

If you want someone who will actually BRAINSTORM and even BUILD your coaching curriculum for you, we recommend you check out this done-with-you and done-for-you custom option. (Watch the “How to Create Your Own Coaching Curriculum” webinar on the bottom of the page for free tips.)

What if I’m in Personal Development (or am a Life Coach) and am not a Business Coach? Any suggestions for shortcuts for me?

What if I’m a Health Coach? 

Our friends Tracy & Susanne have created several really great packages on health. Click here to check their done-for-you health content.

ok. I purchased one of your done-for-you courses. How do I create a beautiful sales page? 

This is what we use: Create Beautiful Sales and Optin Pages with Divi Builder and Theme

We really needed a theme that would allow us tons of flexibility + features for creating a sales page on WordPress.And we found the one that we love and use often for creating sales pages, opt-in pages, and download pages is the Divi Builder + Theme. You can see it in action here.

The Coach Glue brand is so beautiful and cohesive. How do I ensure my brand is too? 

We worked with a designer who helped us. I don’t believe she is still taking clients.

But… we do have a great resource for you!

Jasmine at She Bold has created stock photo sets that all go around a certain color as well as lead magnets and branding guides, too!

Check them out here.

Any shortcuts on social media graphics to help promote my course? 

We adore these! Truly truly adore them!

These Gorgeous Templates Make Social Media Easy

What countdown timer do you guys use? 

This Countdown Timer Makes us Money. We use it to set urgency on sales pages and in emails, but you can use it for so many other things.

What do you recommend I use to record my videos live? 

Zoom– We use this and love it. Get started for free. The pro plan will give you extra features.

But what about the tech? It’s so scary!

Check out Podia – With Podia, you can get your membership site up and running in literally minutes. There’s nothing to install. Nothing techie. Just follow the directions and upload your content. You can even get started here for free by signing up with your email. They handle everything.

OR if you are doing your course live over the course of a few sessions or you offer one-on-one coaching as part of your program, then you might prefer this solution designed specifically for coaches. Watch the demo video to see if it’s right for you.

What do I need to know before launching my course? 

Great question! We actually have a “Map Out Your 6-Figure Course Launch in a Weekend” planner that will guide you through launching your course.

But, if you want to learn from a course, we recommend this one: The Six-Figure Evergreen Launch Funnel System

We hope this is helpful!
Warmly,
