sell-elearningEveryone knows something about something. Whether you realize it or not, you are likely in a situation where your unique experiences and expertise would benefit someone else.

The truth is, you don’t have to be an internationally recognized expert in order to help people. In fact, there are thousands of people selling courses online today, but none of them are remotely famous. That said, it doesn’t make their content all that less valuable. In fact, quite the opposite.

In most cases, people connect to people, not products. If you have 15-years experience in a particular field, then you likely have valuable insights that someone just starting their career could benefit from learning – and chances are they will pay in order to get this information.

It Has Never Been Easier

If you have considered creating an elearning course to sell for profit, then the time has never been better. Getting started is just a matter of signing up for a hosting account and installing WordPress. In fact, most hosting providers will do this for you (such as HostGator).

From there, all you need to do is create your course content. You can do this in a variety of ways, including using membership plugins. If you want to create logical courses, lessons, and perhaps quizzes – then you should consider a WordPress elearning plugin like LearnDash.

Using a tool like LearnDash, you can easily create your course content, assign a price, and begin selling. The plugin itself will protect your content, and is packed full of additional relevant features. It literally is an all-in-one-solution.

No matter what solution you choose though, the point is that creating elearning on a WordPress site makes it easy to get started quickly selling your courses.

If you are new to this entire concept and would like a little more guidance, we have created a free course to provide some useful hints and tips for creating and selling elearning courses.

The hardest part of any project is getting started – but after you start making those first steps you will see the snow-ball effect of your efforts.
