You can use the knowledge and the skills that you have to create online training courses and programs. People will pay to access your training and you can use established platforms such as Udemy and Teachable to make your training available
Decide on the Format of your Course
We would recommend that you provide your online training courses in video format but you can also include text-based resources such as PDF documents, spreadsheets, slide presentations and more. Find out what your market wants before deciding on the format of your training. You can research existing courses in your niche to see how they present their training.
Right now, there are people earning huge amounts of money by providing online training. They provide courses that show people how to learn a new skill or solve a specific problem. Think about it – you create your training course once and you sell it over and over to people that want it.
Anyone can Create a Good Online Training Course
You may be thinking that you do not have the knowledge, skills or experience to create a quality online training course. But this is not the case. There are people looking to learn all kinds of things online and all you need to do is to learn more than they do and you can create a course.
The online course that you create does not have to be very extensive. Less is often more with online training as people do not want to spend too much time learning. You could develop a basic course and then more advanced courses to make even more money.
Knowing what your target audience wants is the secret to success. In every niche, there are problems that people have and you can identify these and solve them with your online training. Do your research and uncover these pain points. Then create your courses around them.
Make an Assessment of your Current Skills
The first step to creating successful online training courses is to make an assessment of the skills that you currently have. Identify your interests as well as it will be a lot easier for you to create a course around something that you are interested in.
You want to come up with a list of possibilities and then choose the best one to get started. Perhaps you have some experience of digital marketing and generating traffic to a website for example. Or maybe you are an accountant and can teach people valuable business accounting skills?
There is value in these skills and many others. If you don’t think that you have valuable skills and experience to offer then you can learn anew skill, master it, and then create a course around it. The most important thing is that you create courses that people want.
The Sky is the Limit with Online Training
The provision of online training has the potential to make you a lot of money and can be one of the most profitable side hustles around. There are many options for you to take this further to make more money. For example, you could decide to provide personal one-on-one coaching to your students. You can charge a lot more money for this. If your online training is high-quality (which it needs to be) and people perceive you to be an expert, some of them will want more from you and will be willing to pay for it.
If you like the online coaching idea then you could offer your students a 30 day or 60 day series of calls. Another idea is to create a membership website where your students pay you a monthly subscription for additional training and resources.
