If you’re looking for an easy way to make a few extra bucks, you’ve come to the right place. In this blog post, I will teach you the exact steps to create your own online marketing course for free. Ready to get started? Let’s do this thing.
To create your own online marketing course, you first need to decide what you will teach and how you will teach it. The first step is to create a free Google Classroom account. You can use this account to store and share all your course materials and files. In addition, you can use the classroom to create assignments and quizzes that you will use to evaluate your students’ understanding of the material.
After you have a Google Classroom account, the next step is to decide on the platform that you will use to create your course. You have a few options here, but I would recommend that you choose either Teachable or CourseKraken. The former is a bit more flexible than the latter, but all of your students will be able to access the same files via the Google Classroom.
Once you have Teachable, you can simply log into your account and click on the “Create a Class” button to start the process. You will then need to choose a name for your course and select a course theme (such as web analytics or SEO) before you can begin to build your course. From there, you can move on to the next step.
Step 2: Identify Your Target Audience
The next step is to identify your target audience. This is a crucial step as you will be creating content for this audience. If you’re looking to create an online marketing course for free, your best bet is to use free trial offers or various coupons that you can find on social media. For example, if you’re listening to podcasts frequently, you could create a course on the topics covered in those podcasts. You can use the trial to identify potential topics that you might cover in your course.
If you’re looking to create an online marketing course that will be available to all audiences, consider using YouTube to attract potential students. YouTube is one of the world’s largest video platforms with over a billion active monthly users. In addition, you can use a tool like SeoOptimizer to easily find keywords that correspond to your videos. If you upload your videos to YouTube, you can also use the platform to find potential students who are searching for the topics covered in your videos. It’s a win-win if your videos help people and they find you through those videos.
Step 3: Create Your Course Outline
Now that you have your target audience, you can move on to the next step which is to create your course outline. Every course has an outline, regardless of whether you use a free outline template or write one from scratch. The first step in the course creation process is to create a detailed outline that will serve as your guide for the entire semester. This is the blueprint for your course. Each segment of the course will have a different outline, but all of them should integrate with the overarching course outline.
Start by listing all of the required materials for the course. In addition to the course outline, you will need to think about what you will teach and how you will teach it. I would recommend creating a syllabus containing all of the required readings, videos, and any other materials that you think might be useful in teaching the course. Remember, you are free to change the order of the segments in your course at any time.
Include any pre or post-course assignments that you might give your students. These assignments should be carefully crafted and designed to help your students understand the concepts that you will cover in the course. Think of these assignments as building blocks that you will use to construct the final product of your course. Remember, you are giving this course for free, so you can afford to be a little generous with your assignments. If you do end up charging students for the course, these little assignments will still help them remember the valuable information that they learned.
Step 4: Create Your Lecture Slides
The next step is to create your lecture slides. These are essentially just re-used slides that you will use to present the course to your students. As a minimum, you should create a single Powerpoint presentation that will act as your course slides. If you’re using a Mac, you can simply choose the “Microsoft Excel” template from the Apple menu and start typing. For Windows users, OpenOffice is a free, full-featured office suite that can serve as a bit of a substitute for Microsoft Excel.
If you’re using Microsoft Excel, you should start by making a copy of the template and then start modifying it. You should also consider using the “Table” function to create a two-dimensional outline of the material that you will cover in your course. This will help you present information in a clear and concise manner. When you present your course material using these slides, you will want your students to follow along and take copious notes. The more detail and the better the notes, the better.
Step 5: Final Step: Create Your FAQs
One of the most important steps in creating a course is to create a FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) section. This is a place where you can answer all of the questions that your students might have about the course material. While you’re at it, you might as well create a section for common mistakes that students might make and how to avoid them. This will help your students stay on top of their game instead of getting distracted by questions that are not relevant to their specific needs.
If you’re using Microsoft Excel, you can simply create a new section at the end of your slides and start typing. For Windows users, you can use the “Word” function to create a new document and then type the questions that you want to address. For Mac users, you can choose the “Text” function and then start typing. Finally, you can either print off a copy for your students or you can keep all of this information in a convenient online format for yourself.
The first step to creating an online marketing course for free is relatively simple. You just need to have a Google account and you can use that account to create a free Classroom. From there, you can simply choose a platform that you will use to host your course (such as Google Drive or WordPress) and you can use the platform to build your course. If you are using Microsoft Excel, you can either create a new document or you can import an existing one (make sure that you always keep your original file untouched). Once you have your document, you can start modifying it to fit your needs. Remember, you’re free to change the order of your segments at any time.
