Scaling your social media business by launching a course

This is part 4 of a mini-series about scaling your social media business

In this episode, we share our experiences of creating & launching courses and give you our tips and advice to do the same.

KEY TAKEAWAYS:

• There is more than one way to plan and host a course. Think outside the box.

• People learn in different ways so try to accommodate the needs of your audience. Offer VIP upgrades, provide your course materials in different formats (we use Searchie for this) etc.

• It's not uncommon for people to take the same course multiple times so think about how you can tweak and refine it to help people go deeper.

• Sell it before you build it.

• The best courses are updated, tweaked and refined over time. Don't let your audience down and ruin your own reputation by allowing your course to become out of date.

• As part of your planning, consider what your students might need next & whether there is potential for a backend membership.

USEFUL RESOURCES

If you are considering scaling with a course, you might find Amy Porterfield's Digital Course Academy programme helpful.

I am Laura No 1 (even though she will disagree!) I am the one who is addicted to Diet Coke and all things chocolate. You'll find me juggling business, getting stuck into writing emails and trying out new tech with being a full-time carer to my son, William, who has Cerebral Palsy.
I started my first business in 2007 and have been self-employed ever since. And it was a no brainer to join forces with Laura Davis (aka Laura 2) back in 2019 to help freelance social media managers with advice, support, courses & memberships.

I am Laura No 1 (ignore what she says!)
I am the one who loves Gin and is often seen juggling a freelance business, The Two Lauras, AND three kids.
Over 10 years of being self-employed have meant I've learnt ALOT about freelance life. The Two Laura's was created because we saw others struggling with the same issues we had experienced ourselves. So with a love of social media, a commitment to help others we now serve over 10k freelance social media managers with advice, support, courses & memberships.
