My New Online Course “Expertise To Income” is LIVE!

Missed your chance to pre-order? The NEXT 25 people who buy the course using this link will still get the $10 off discount. After that, the course goes back to full launch price.

version2 copy

So what is this thing? It’s an online course that walks you through the entire step-by-step process of planning, testing, building, and selling your OWN online course. It focuses on helping you identify skills and areas of expertise you have, then turning that into short, high-quality courses you can sell — without having to do those awkward talking head videos.

What’s in Version 1.0 at launch?

This course was built in 10 days as part of Gumroad’s amazing Small Product Lab challenge, and it’s been an intense week of hard work to get this together. I still have more I plan to add to the course, but the idea was to create the best product possible in that short timeframe, launch it, then continue to add to it. So if you buy the course, you’ll get:

  • 25 high quality video lessons
  • 2+ hours of content
  • A 17,000+ word PDF guide

In the coming days, I’ll also be adding an extensive section of additional videos focusing on marketing, launching, and selling your course. That module is still in the works, but the content I have in place is really detailed and ready to rock!

The PDF guide that’s included at launch was created from my script for the courses. It reads like an ebook, but it isn’t quite formatted and all prettied up 100% yet. I’ll be making that nicer looking and expanding it when I incorporate the final module.

Why should I buy this now?

The price of this course is going to go up as I add more content. Discount aside, the $24.99 launch price is only temporary. With over 2 hours of video content, this is a steal. But I plan to add a lot more to the course in the weeks and months to come. As that happens, I’ll be increasing the price more to where it should be for the length and value of content.

So if you act now, you’ll save a lot of money, and you’ll get access to all future updates for free!
