Figure out what are you good at:
There can be multiple things in which you are good at. But narrow it down and decide what is something that you know the best and you feel confident about. It can be anything from any technical subjects like coding HTML to just hobbies like poem writing. Figure out the best in you and make sure that you can make someone else good at that as well.
It can help someone a lot in many terms and it is important to know that you are only ready to train someone when you have a good knowledge and also experience of something.

So, it is important that you must have a good hands-on experience with the thing you wish to teach to other people and then only you can ask for money from the audience who opts for your online course.
Your Online Course Quality:
A lot of times it happens that people get excited about producing an online course with an expectations of thousands of people buying that. But in that condition sometimes people create their course in a hurry and post it somewhere regardless of the quality of the course.
It is important to keep all the pieces of equipment and tools ready before jumping to something like creating an online course. You can not compromise with the quality of video and audio you include in that course. If you do not have enough resources for producing good quality videos then it is always better to opt for slideshows. The camera matters and the microphone also matter and these are the two things that you must have to be clear to the audience. Choose your genre wisely and prepare with the best quality that is possible from your end. Make sure you utilize everything possible from your end. Before getting something from that course you must invest something on that.
Watch it yourself:
Do not rush on this process. It is crucial that once you finish creating your online course you must check that out yourself completely. It is a time taking process and it needs a lot of efforts to double-check your work. But, you don’t want to look or sound unprofessional while you are teaching someone professionally right! So, make sure to check multiple times before making your online course live because it is going to represent you and is going to establish your image for your next projects.
It is all about Value:
By value, we don’t mean the price of the course. We are talking about the overall benefits that your audience will get after completing your online course. Your course should be able to give them the assurance that they are ready to test whatever they have learnt. If you wish that your course should benefit more people then you must include some appreciating stuff for them and end your course with some strong messages that help the audience to gain confidence after finishing your course. Your viewers must get something that adds up value in their lives after they complete the course.
