Hello future successful course creator

Has creating a course been stuck on your to-do list for months?

And yet you haven’t moved any closer to getting it done

So, you’ve decided you’re ready for a course

And you’ve probably been daydreaming about all the free time having a course would give you.

Dreams of chilling with your Kindle and a glass of wine in your hand.

Dreams of all the smiling and happy faces of the people you were going to be able to help, and of course all the money you’re going to make.

It’s just like a Hallmark movie!

But then you realised – creating a course is hard!

And unless you figure this out, you’ll never be able to achieve that Hallmark movie vision you have for your business.

Instead of living the dream, you’ll be…

Chained to your desk working 12-hour days and most weekends. Postponing that date night with your partner – yet again – for the 6th week in a row. And feeling like you’re stuck on a treadmill that’ll never stop.

You know you can’t keep this up for much longer!

You’d love to be able to…

Turn that expertise you’re already sharing with your 1:1 clients into something you can sell over and over again.

You’ve got the expertise but you need help packaging it up so you can finally achieve that Hallmark movie version of the life and business you want.

All you need is a little Hybrid Course Help

Hybrid Course Help is an intimate, hands-on, done-together program for future successful course creators (like you)

Z

A program designed to guide you step-by-step through the process of creating a course

Z

Give you exclusive 1:1 support, feedback and accountability in a way that works best for you

Z

Along with all the fill-in-the-blank templates, planning and scheduling tools you need to get it done

Instead of working with some guru who doesn’t know your name, I work closely with you personally to create your content, set up your platform and sales page and get it all ready to sell.

GET YOUR DUCKS IN A ROW

Here’s how it works

Hybrid Course Help is a combination of 1:1 support and accountability and done-for-you services that follows a step-by-step process.

Preparation

In the preparation phase, we start with a strategy session to determine what type of content to create and what platform to use to host your course. Then we’ll create a roadmap for you to follow to get your course created.

Creation

It’s time to start creating that content – recording videos and typing out text docs. I’m with you all the way with weekly accountability sessions via Zoom and daily feedback and answers to your questions via Slack. 

Construction

In the construction phase, I’ll get your course ready to sell for you. I’ll edit your video/audio, create downloadable content like workbooks and set up your course platform. And finally, create your course sales funnel. 

I’ll be with you all the way through the process guiding you and answering all of your questions.

Let’s take a look inside Hybrid course Help

What does the 1:1 coaching look like?

You don’t know where to start

We’ll work together on figuring out your foundational aspects and from there the next best steps you need to take to create an outline for your course or program. And as we progress through the process you’ll have plenty of opportunities to get all your questions answered. 

Planning and scheduling

If you struggle to get organised we’ll work on creating a plan of action using project management tools, fill-in-the-blank worksheets and a scheduler so you can get.it.done!

Figuring out the tech

Not sure what to use to record your videos or how to get the best audio or which platform is the best platform to host your course? I’ll walk you through how to choose the right tech for you.

Dealing with mental blocks

This is a biggie. A lot of my clients start out super enthusiastic, but then when it’s time to start recording themselves on video they get stuck. I can help you deal with the fear of being seen and imposter syndrome and help you create your videos in a way that works best for you. 

Support in a way that works for you

Having scheduled calls via Zoom doesn’t work for everyone. Perhaps you struggle to find the time for a call. Or find Zoom calls draining. Or you just don’t like talking to people. Whatever the reason, it’s no biggie. You can still get the help you need in a way that works for you with digital support. What is digital support? Well, it’s help and guidance via text, screen share videos and audio messages using the Slack app. (see FAQ for full details)

Accountability

If you’re struggling to get it done, having me check up on your progress will help you stay on track. Whether you prefer Zoom calls or digital support, in each session, we’ll review work that was done in the previous session and come up with a plan of action moving forward. Just setting the intention to achieve certain tasks increases your chance of completing them. And you get my feedback on your work as you do it. 

More Hybrid course Help details

What does the done-for-you service look like?

Interactive and engaging workbooks

I’ll take your text documents and convert them into engaging, interactive workbooks. Allowing your audience to ‘explore and experience’ rather than just passively read your content.

Video editing

I’ll take your raw video footage and transform it into engaging course videos by editing out the bloopers, creating animated intros (with music), adding slides, and supporting b-roll footage. So you end up with videos that look slick and professional.

Platform tech set up

You get a custom-designed members area designed to match your branding. I’ll upload all your content, videos, PDF files, audio files etc. review your on-screen copy and give you tips on how to optimise it (On-screen copy is the detail and descriptions written for your modules/lessons). 

Add engagement to your course

To help keep people engaged in your course I’ll set up quizzes/assessments and create an automated email sequence (with emails to be sent to encourage them as they progress through the course).

Sales funnel set up 

You get a custom-designed sales page and I’ll review your sales page copy and give you tips on how to optimise it (The offer does not include copywriting). I’ll create 3 offers and check out pages (ie. if you want to offer a full price offer and a payment terms offer or different pricing levels). You also get a custom designed thank you page and an automated welcome email sequence set up.

Is trying to do it on your own keeping you stuck?

Working with a guide will fast-track your progress and make the process a lot less frustrating.

Now, I don’t consider myself a business coach, that’s not what I do. So if that’s what you’re after, no need to read on. I’m more of a guide, helping you navigate through the process of creating a successful course or coaching program.

Just like you would employ a personal trainer to help you get fit, I will guide you, support you, answer all your questions and hold you accountable so you can get it done. Consider me your partner, your support system, your consultant, your mentor.

I bring my many years of experience in both course creation and marketing, to help you achieve the goals you have for your course or coaching business. There’s no need for you to go it alone. 

Meet some of my clients…

“Lisa was referred to me and boy did she change my life. I had done a course on doing courses, but I couldn’t quite figure it all out. After my first phone meeting with Lisa I felt I had found my person. Lisa guided me all the way through and put my mind at ease. ”

Rachael Burgess

Founder & Owner, Rachael Burgess Courses

“If you are looking for expert help in creating an outline course, I highly recommend Lisa and Setup Sidekick. Lisa truly delivers when she says, “I’m all about making course creation as simple and stress-free as possible.”

Mary Oluonye

Author and Co-Owner of Celmar Travels USA/Ghana

“Not only is Lisa so enjoyable to work with but her skills are second to none. She walked me through every step of the process and was able to overcome any obstacles along the way.”

Dr David Bilstrom MD

Director of the International Autoimmune Institute & Bingham Memorial Center for Functional Medicine

“Before working with Lisa we were not sure where to start or host our new course. She helped us through the whole process from the beginning to end and provided her insights on what was best for the type of course we had.”

Joseph & Marissa Msefya

Marriage Coaches, Forever Marriages

“Luckily for me, I was connected with Lisa at Setup Sidekick. And I will tell you that working with her was one of the best investments I have ever made.”

Dr Glenn Vo

Dentist, Industry Influencer, Speaker, Coach and Published Author, Nifty Thrifty Dentists

“Wanting to create an online course and webinars were things I just dipped in and out of, but after my time with Lisa, I now have the confidence to get ‘stuck in’ and start doing these things I’ve always thought were too hard!”

Dawn Walton

Life Coach , Inner Self Coaching

Maybe you’re thinking…

“Can’t I just hire a VA?”

Of course, you could hire a VA. Spend time finding the right VA. One who understands course creation, has worked with all the tech before and is able to support you and answer all of your questions along the way.

Or, you could take the shortcut!

Work with an implementation partner who’s in the digital course creation space and who already has all the skills, tech and knowledge to help you create your course or program.

I’ll be by your side the whole way – guiding you step-by-step through the process, so you know exactly what needs to happen, and when.

There are a few prerequisites

R

YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED

Questions about Hybrid Course Help 

How much does Hybrid Course Help cost?

Hybrid Course Help is a high-touch, boutique experience. I work closely with you personally to create your course and as every course is completely different there is no standard price for the program. 

What platforms do you work with?

I’ve worked with many different course hosting platforms; Teachable, Thinkific, Kajabi, Kartra, Membervault, New Zenler, Systeme.io, and FGFunnels – so I can advise you on which platform is best for you. 

How many Hybrid Course Help clients do you help at a time?

As this is a highly immersive service I only take on a maximum of 2 Hybrid Help clients at a time. That way you get all of my focus on you and your project.

I'm halfway through creating my course - can I still apply?

Yes, absolutely. The Hybrid Course Help service is customisable to your needs. When you complete the application form, let me know where you are in the process and I’ll adjust the service and pricing accordingly.

If I fill out the application is my application confirmed?

No, your application is confirmed once your agreement has been signed and payment has been made. The application process allows me to assess your needs so I am absolutely confident that I am the right person to help you with your course/group coaching program.

What type of courses have you helped create in the past?

All sorts! Here are some of the topics: creating a routine, creating an AI bot, interior design, building an online business, agile project management, food photography, writing a book, retirement, mindfulness, dealing with personality disorder, trucking (how to become a carrier), career development, anti-ageing, autoimmune disease and kidney disease

Questions about 1:1 Support and accountability 

Tell me more about the Support and Accountability

The 1:1 support and accountability, is designed to provide you with all the help you need throughout the process. There are two ways you receive support, via 1:1 calls on Zoom and digital support via Slack.

1:1 via Zoom includes weekly 40-minute Zoom calls where we connect and work through whatever we need to focus on that week. 

1:1 via Slack provides on-demand, in-the-moment support using the Slack app during support hours. I do my best to accommodate different time zones for support hours:

  • For the US support hours are between 10am – 3pm EST Monday – Wednesday.
  • The UK/Europe support hours are 10am – 3pm UTC/GMT Monday – Wednesday.
  • In Australia the support hours are 1pm – 6pm AWST Monday – Wednesday.
What kind of questions can I ask?

Anything related to creating courses or group coaching programs. That includes advice on the tech involved in the process, content creation, dealing with mindset issues, planning and time management, funnels and marketing. It’s your time so it’s tailored to you and what you need.

How long will I need to wait for a response with Digital Support via Slack?

On support days and within support hours, I always have my phone on me and my digital support clients are my number one priority. So I’m VERY quick to respond. And if you send any messages outside support hours I’ll reply as soon as possible.

How does Digital Support via Slack actually work?

You have unlimited access to me during support hours using Slack. You can send me questions via text or voice messages, and share your screen with me if you need feedback on anything while you’re working on it.

What if I've never used Slack before?

It’s very similar to WhatsApp with a couple of extra features – so it should be pretty easy for you to get comfortable with. And if you need a little help, I’ll send you a tutorial video that walks you through how to use it.
