Hi there, I found this forum on Indie Hackers and thought I'd give it a go after seeing this category.
I'm starting my first online course this summer and am placing a pretty heavy bet for it to work (hear me out).
I've been doing consulting for 2 years, but haven't been in love with being a technical consultant for CRMs and marketing automation -- I want to help small businesses and entrepreneurs GROW.
COVID struck and many businesses in my communities closed their doors. I live on an island (Cape Breton Island) which usually ranks as one of the world's most beautiful places on Earth!
Soooo here's the plan:
1. Use funds from consulting to hire a video crew to shoot an online course
2. Make the lectures a combination of indoor and outdoor footage (biking, hiking, waterfalls, cliffs, classroom, studio, and screenshare).
3. Try to grow my audience for when the course officially launches
The deadline I've set for myself is August 2020 (launch date) so I'm going to go for it and hope it works.
I'd rather place this bet and try, than to wonder and never know.
If you'd like to see more info on this course, you can check out my website (see my profile).
Thanks anyone/everyone who sees this!
