Choosing the course topic is one of the difficult tasks for the course creators. Everything can be taught. But, you can not be good at teaching everything, right?
This is one of the most significant yet difficult decisions for the course creators. If you are an experienced person then it would not be difficult for you to switch your niche. Whereas if you are starting out then you might feel intimidated. As at this stage you don’t even have any competitors. So, even the competitor’s research is not possible.
You have to find out who your ‘target audience’ is.
Finding the answer to this question can solve half of your problems. It will help you in understanding the demand of the market. You can create the course accordingly when you know what is required in the market. Course creators are making millions because they are providing what is needed in the market and you can do that too.
In this blog, I will share a foolproof strategy about ‘how you can choose a topic to launch your online course’.
There are various course creating and selling platforms where you can sell your online courses. After choosing your niche don’t forget to choose an LMS as per your budget and requirements. You can go for Spayee, it is our personal favorite.
Steps to choose a topic for your online course
1- Identify your target audience
This is the first step while choosing your online course topic. You have to identify for whom you will be creating the course.
For instance, if you are a yoga instructor. Firstly, you have to decide whether you will be starting your classes for men, women, or kids. It is completely your choice. If you choose to train only women.
Secondly, you have to identify why they want to learn Yoga. Whether they want to become fit or lose weight or they are learning to start their own classes. This will also help you in beating the competition.
Therefore, when you understand your audience it becomes easy for you to alter your course as per their needs.
The second thing you have to find is what you are good at?
Which topic can you teach well without getting bored?
You need to identify what problem you can solve through your knowledge.
For instance, if you are a fitness enthusiast and you know how to train people. You have also done certification courses in your niche. Hence, if you are good at it, it will become easy for you to train others. It is good if you are an experienced person but it is not mandatory.
While starting any business, passion is the key that would keep you going. If you are not passionate, you will not be able to keep yourself going during the bad phase of your business. Because it will become difficult for you to pursue it. Passion is the element that fuels your knowledge. It keeps the curiosity alive in you to learn new things.
Therefore, it is extremely important to choose the topic for which you are passionate. It could happen that during the initial days of your online academy you might not get lots of enrollments. But, passion is something that will keep you going.
Create a course on the topic that people would be interested in. They will invest in your course only if they find it useful. So, before creating the course, conduct market research. Analyze whether people would be interested in your topic or not.
