What do Successful Course Creators do online?
I’m sure you’ve heard the saying: find someone who has the success you want and do what they do.
I know I have.
It’s not that easy though… because those people are doing lots of stuff that we don’t see.
So, what do you do?
Connecting with leaders
First of all, you’ll need to connect with the leaders.
Find them and connect.
And when I say “connect”, I don’t mean to send them messages and emails or try to call them because most likely they will ignore you if you do that.
What I mean is get on their email list… follow their social media posts, read their blogs… watch and share their videos… comment on their stuff…
Be the best prospect they are looking for.
That’s probably the only way they’ll notice you.
It’s also something that will take time – you can’t expect to be noticed by them in a few days or weeks… chances are we are looking at months.
If you want to speed it up, buy their stuff too… take their courses… join in on live webinars or live videos.
The lack versus abundance mindset
For me, it’s all about course creation and income generation.
It’s natural I connect with other course creators.
Especially those who teach how to create courses.
Some would argue that they are my competition and perhaps they would feel the same, but I’m have an abundance mindset.
I believe that there are lots of prospects for me that are not really their prospects and vise-versa and there are enough of them to go around.
I actually believe that I help them get clients by talking about them and that gives me more clients too.
Instead of the lack mindset which would rather think that nay clients that I send their way would be lost clients of mine – I do not believe that… if those clients prefer them, that means they weren’t my potential clients anyway.

Top 3 things to do
The top 3 thing that all these leaders do are:
- Have social media presence
- Create regular content
- Send emails to list
Obviously, this is an over simplification since those 3 actions are much more involved but they are the basics.
You need to be online.. on social media… and you need to be engaging on other people’s posts, on their comments, creating content, and sharing content too.
You also absolutely MUST have an email email and grow it regularly as well as send broadcasts to it.
When I join other leader’s email lists, I look at what they send out to give me ideas.
Watch the video to see what these leaders are doing and how you can model some of what they do.
Make sure to share this with your friends, they need to see this too.
