FIVE MYTHS ABOUT CREATING ONLINE COURSES
In this post, I want to do one thing.
To trash fear.
I want to kill it.
I want to destroy it.
I want to murder it so that it stops holding you back.
I’ve seen so many talented women entrepreneurs hold themselves back because they don’t believe that they have what it takes.
It’s a lie!!!!!
I can’t create an online course because I’m not a techy
An Online Course is first of all a course.
You know, a training program.
It is your knowledge that has been packaged in form of an online course.
Just the way you write a book, without having to be a printer. You can create a course without having to be a technology wiz kid.
There are now tech platforms that make it so easy for you to create and sell a course.
If you can use Instagram, you can use these tech platforms because all you have to do is just to be pressing button and writing captions.
No coding required.
There are even very affordable.
Instead of paying tons of money to a web developer to build an online school for you, you can just pay a little token every month and the platform will host your online course for you.
The only thing you have to do, is to bring your content...and you don’t have to be a techy to document what you know.
The content is already in your head.
I created a free masterclass to show you how to create your online course even if you're not a techy.

I can’t create an online course because I don’t have the time
I understand this, because when I created my first online course...I was also very busy.
You know what I dealt with this issue?
I gave myself time.
Anytime people think of creating an online course, they always feel like they have to finish it overnight or on one day.
By the time they see all the steps involved, they say to themselves, “I don’t have the time for this”.
The truth is, Building an online course is just like building a house.
The two of them have the same result.
You will make money from it consistently once they have been completed.
The two of them also take the same process.
You can’t finish a house in a day...no matter the technology you want to use.
You’ll first of all build the foundation, then you’ll build the walls, etc.
It’s the same thing with an online course.
Break it up and complete the tasks one after the other.
Before you know it, you will finish it and you will then have an asset that can make you money for life.
Don’t let this excuse stop you oh.
Always remember what’s at stake.
If you launch an online course successfully, you’ll be able to having more time to play with your kids, making more money to invest in some personal projects and even splurge a little, and impacting the lives of people in countries you have never heard about), you’ll need to create a plan and set yourself up for success.
If an accountability partner is what you need, then get one.
Good things take time… and this is why you need to treat it like a project.
I can’t create an online course because my content cannot be packaged into a course.
Everything can be taught.
It’s just now that we are creating online courses and so it feels like it’s a new type of idea but if you do your research, you will find that people have written books on that topic you think cannot be taught.
People have created youtube videos on that topic .
People have written blogposts on that topic.
People may even have already created online courses on that topic.
Nothing is new under the sun.
I can’t create online courses because people won’t pay the price I would like to place on it
Let me tell you something.
I once paid $2,000 for an online course, and you know what…40,000 people have also paid for that course.
You know why we all paid for that course?
Brilliant Product, Brilliant Marketing.
If you create a course that solves a real problem for people, they will buy it...no matter what the price is.
Let me tell you something.
There will always be a set of people who can afford any price.
If you market your course the right way, you will attract the type of people who are out there, because believe me when I say it.
There are so many people all around the world who can afford to pay for a solution.
You don’t have to limit yourself to the people around you who can’t afford your course.
It’s not every country that’s going through a recession.
It’s not everybody that’s broke.
One person may say $2,000 is too expensive, another person may pay $2,000 without blinking.
They won’t even think twice.
The power of online courses is that you have a product that you can market to people all over the world, not your city.
Please I want you to SEE what I’m explaining to you.
You have GOLD!
I can’t create an online course because everybody else is better than me
This is a lie of the devil.
If you feel this way, I want you to rephrase this.
Instead of saying “Everybody else is better than me”, you can change it to
“Everyone else is different from me.”
Your customers will choose you because you are different.
If you’ve been able to build a successful business because you went to Harvard, you will find people who will pay for your course because you are Harvard trained.
If you’ve been able to build a successful business and you didn’t even go to business school, you will find people who will pay for your course because you didn’t go to business school. They will look at you and say, “She’s just like me”.
Even if you have yoruba accent, they will love you like that because they will say, “She’s just like me”.
So just own everything you have.
Own your story.
Own your background.
Own your results.
The world is biggggggg and you will find a group of people who love you just the way you are.
You are enough.
