What if I create a course & nobody buys it?

No one wants to spend months creating a course that nobody wants, right?

Of course, no one plans to create a course that doesn’t sell. But it happens all the time.


Course creators, (not you, of course, because you’ll know how to do it right) come up with a great idea for a course, plan it all out, spend months (and lots of $$$) creating it and when they finally launch it, they get… crickets.


It sucks! And I can tell you that from experience because I was one of those crazy people. It’s a tough lesson to learn.

So, creating an online course nobody wants is a very valid fear to have.

And yet you’re still left wondering, what if…

And that’s exactly what I want you to ask yourself.

What if I COULD create a course that sells?

What would that mean for me and my business?

More money, more time, more freedom?

A course can give you all of these things!

So how do you avoid creating a course that no one wants?


You Validate it Before you Create it, of course.

And what’s the best way to validate an offer? Get people to buy it!

That’s right, my friend. The best way to figure out if your course will sell is to sell it BEFORE you create it.

And that’s exactly what you’ll learn in my Validate it Before you Create it Workshop!


The Validate it Before you Create it Workshop

I’ll show you step-by-step how to build, and pre-sell the beta version of your digital course so you can get your first paying students before creating any course content upfront.

Hi, I’m Lisa

I’m an implementation partner for coaches and service providers, like you, who want to create courses. Which means that I’ve helped create a lot of courses over the years.

But my first course was a flop and I don’t want you to have that experience with your course.

I believe that creating a course that sells IS possible for anyone—and I want that for you.

When you work with me you gain access to my 9 years as a corporate trainer – along with my 12 years of online marketing experience. So, you end up with a course that is not only educationally sound but also marketable, allowing you to scale with ease.
