Have ever thought about all the knowledge in your brain? We all have skills, and everyone’s skills are different. What if you could tap into what you know and teach it to others? Have you ever wondered how can you make money by creating and selling online courses?

I recently began talking to Viktoria Portyannykova, who did exactly that, creating an online course teaching others how to speak Russian in her spare time. Her course became quite successful and she enjoyed doing that so much, she thought she would teach others how to tap into their knowledge and create courses just like she did.

In this guest post, here she is explaining the benefits of creating your own online course.

How Can You Make Money by Creating and Selling Online Courses

Let me guess… You want to stay at home with your kids, spend every precious minute with them, watch them play, learn and grow, while building a meaningful career at the same time. Wouldn’t this feel like a dream come true?

Being a mum is a 24/7/365 job, but how about a career that will free up some time for you to spend with your family? And I’m here to tell you that it is possible.

Creating a business by selling online courses has allowed me to enjoy so much more free time, my family and friendships.

If you’ve never created an online course before, here is an interesting statistic for you.

In 2016 online courses and e-learning market size was at over $150 billion. It’s predicted to grow by at least 5% each year from 2017 to 2024.

As you can see e-learning industry is growing very fast, more and more people purchase online courses and feel comfortable creating their own digital products. Now is the best time to create and start selling your own online course. Or even multiple courses.

What Do You Need to Create an Online Course?

If you have skills, knowledge or experience that will help others to achieve a specific result or goal, you can teach it in your online course.

Let’s say, you make delicious homemade meals, or you are great at giving parenting tips, or you are known for organizing fun birthdays and other events for your kids, or you are amazing at creating a beautiful and comfortable home. Or maybe you are good at something else. You can package up your knowledge into an online course and share your skills and experience with the rest of the world, while making income from home at the same time.

If you own a consulting business or have always wanted to do coaching and consultations, you can turn your consultations and lessons into videos and teach them online in your course.

If you are a blogger or are considering starting a blog on a specific topic, you can create an online course and teach that topic in your course.

Creating and selling an online course will create more free time in your life that you can spend with your family and kids. It will also allow you to serve a much wider audience all over the world without having to sacrifice your precious time.

And what I love the most about creating and selling online courses –  you can do it from home or anywhere in the world. All you need is a computer and access to the Internet.

How Stay-at-Home Mums Can Benefit from Creating an Online Course 

The main benefit is that you can run your small online business from home or anywhere in the world. This means more quality time with your family.

Once you create and start selling you course, and then scaling your business, you will have even more free time to spend with your kids.

Another great benefit is that you can create your own flexible schedule, working on your online course a few hours a day and take time off when you need to spend time with your family.

And finally, creating and selling your online course will allow you to become an expert in your industry while working from home and build a fulfilling career of your dreams.

Once you start scaling your online business, you can hire a virtual assistant to help you with administrative and other tasks. This will free up your schedule and will allow you to spend even more time with your family.
