Creating your course
The first step in creating your online course is figuring out what specific subject you will teach.
Some tips for choosing the right subject include:
- Choose a focused and niche topic rather than a broad one. Having a broad topic usually means more competition. The more focused your niche, the easier it is to convey expertise.
- Have expert-level knowledge. Keep in mind, being an expert on a topic might mean you have better-than-average knowledge. You don’t have to be a genius or have traditional credentials.
- Know who your audience is, what their problems are, and how you can teach them to solve those problems.
