Let me help you turn your message into a successful online course that earns passive income

Online learning is a huge trend worldwide, allowing students to learn most any topic — from app development to Greek history – at their own pace and from any device.

Consider these stats:

  • Companies such as Fedora are aiming to create the next million dollar teachers
  • Udemy.com boasts 15,000+ instructors and 7 million students in 80 languages (6/2015)
  • Lynda.com was acquired by LinkedIn for $1.5 Billion (5/2015)
  • Udemy reports that its top 10 instructors have earned $17 million (2/2015)

So if you’re a thought-leader, author, teacher, coach, speaker, or anyone with a skill that you want to teach, you should just throw your material up online and get started, right?

Well, it’s not quite that easy.

The key to success is having a high quality course. That means the proper content and the right production values, hosted on the proper platform and geared to the right audience.

While I subscribe to the “lean startup” approach of starting small and testing, did you know Udemy has a 40-point checklist that even the most basic course needs to pass in order to be approved?

A lot of teachers don’t know — or have the desire to know — the first thing about course creation and video production.

That’s where I come in. Contact me to learn more. Read on for more information.

Common Instructor Questions

By working together, I can help answer the most common questions instructors have:

  • How do I make passive income with my course?
  • How should I structure the content?
  • How long should my course be?
  • How can I get quality audio and video?
  • How should I price it?
  • What is the best online course platform?
  • How can I market it to make sales?

Two reasons we should work together:

1) I have a particular set of skills
Not only did I jump on the current online learning train early (2012)… I actually helped Fortune 500 companies do this in the mid 90s — before the internet! (I can explain).

The process requires expertise in several areas:

  • Meticulous organization (I have that in spades)
  • Top notch writing and editing (Published author and 300+ articles written)
  • Digital marketing expertise (12 years experience at ESPN and WIRED)
  • Public speaking knowledge (6 time SXSW speaker)
  • Getting things done (Connections forged from a decade in NYC)

It also helps that I’ve walked the walk, having created half a dozen courses with tens of thousands of students.

2) This allows YOU to relaxurvashi-200
You’re here because you’re an expert on something cool, and want more people to hear your message.

When you hire me, you can focus on just that message, while I take care of the details like the video team, editing schedule, and getting the course online.

What would it feel like to simply hand over a script, have an Uber car bring you to the studio for your shoot a few weeks later, and before you know be looking at your course live online? One that earns you income 24×7.

Sounds good, right?

  • Video Production (Hiring the team and assistants)
