Outlining your course
If you didn’t catch last weeks post – you can find it here – http://cleverapple.com/kajabi-review-for-tutor-productions-create-tool-for-creating-your-educating-masterpiece/
Today we’re going to work on outlining your course, this is the first step in the process. Once you get a good outline, then you can begin to work on creating the content for the course – which we’ll talk about next week on our blog.
- You’ll want eight to twelve sections. Think first of the end goal you have in mind then break that don’t into steps that someone would need to take in order to achieve it. Example if someone wanted to ace their SAT math score, what types of problems would they need to know in order to pass. You’ll first want to jot down just the topic. So in our example we would put Geometry – although we could probably break that down a bit. If you have more than 12 you’ll want to combine the items. You’ll be providing one of these sections each week. If you have less than eight then you’ll want to break some of those you have into parts.
- When you have the list, no go into each item and list things you’ll need to cover for each section. You can break these into even smaller bits if you need to. Do this for each section.
- Now put it aside for the day. You’ll think about it more than you realize, so make sure to jot down any notes you come up with.
- Review courses that are already online – you might have to purchase one but normally these courses have an outline of what they cover. Did you forget anything, add it. Also note of additional things that you covered and use it when you create your sales page.
Next week we’ll talk about how to take that outline and create your course with it.
Getting Students –
Before you know it will be tournament time – for basketball season anyway. Advertise in one of the schools programs in your area. Make sure to offer a unique discount and make it easy for them to contact you – give them your phone number and your website. Also give a time limit in your advertising. Make notes of the time limits and discounts in your notebook.
Business Tip –
Now is a good time to think about what you’ll be offering this Summer for your business. If you’re going to be using students to help (either high school or college), ask the teachers to recommend a few students and then contact them about a job. Here are some good links about hiring someone.
Enjoy your week!
