When you are just starting out, you usually do not have any products or courses of your own. Or, if you have created your first product, it may not be something that will be a huge money maker right away. So how do you get your name out there and start making money doing what you love? By teaching someone else’s content.
I continue to do this even though I have more than a dozen products and courses of my own. I just finished co-teaching a course on starting your online business with my friend and colleague Dr. Jeanette Cates. During the last week of the class I asked Jeanette if I could teach the content in her membership site to both her students and mine. She agreed, and this training begins on Wednesday, August 12, for 12 weeks.
We will have a webinar each week, and I will guide you through the 12 Modules of her program. The way I make money is to bring in people from my list through my affiliate link, and then by connecting with her students during the 12 weeks to let them know what it is like to receive my technology training.
When the 12 weeks is up I am hoping that many of my students will be anxious to learn more from her, and that many of her students will want to continue with me in one of my programs. Both of us benefit, as well as the hundreds of people we will be teaching during this time.
Find a product or course that you can offer to your list in a similar way. Most people will be open to this type of arrangement and you will have one more way to make profit from your small list.
