People want to hear from someone who is FIRED UP about what they are doing.
Sometimes it’s more about how you say something compared to what you actually say, so choosing something that you’re genuinely excited about is a must.
Are people interested on social media?
Do some research on social media, the biggest one being Facebook. Find out what people want!
Talk to your network, ask questions, and start to narrow down exactly what people are hungry for. It doesn’t matter how good your topic is if no one else cares or has a need for it.
Has anyone created videos on your topic on YouTube?
Check out YouTube to see what’s out there on your course topic. You may be thinking,
“Why would someone purchase my course when they can view these videos for free?”
YouTube videos are great. However, your course will be professionalized content with a framework and lesson plan that people can follow in a single location.
