The term ‘content creator’ probably meant nothing in the early 2000s. With the creation of the YouTube universe followed by scores of other platforms, content creation went from a trend to a hobby to a full-time profession. As per a 2018 study, 70% of YouTube viewers believe that content creators drive modern culture. Content creator revenues have been rising each year.


Reasonably, benchmarks for the quality of content on digital platforms have gone up. If you want to enter this world, you have to be exceptional, which takes dedication. This doesn’t mean that you even have to think of giving up on your day job. The beauty of content creation as a pursuit is that you just need to be strategic. It can coexist with other commitments in your life and yet give you creative and financial success.


How online content creation saves time

How online content creation saves time

Online content creation, whether it is in video, text, or any other format, can be the best side-gig for a professional, a student, or nearly anyone. These are some reasons why:


  • Less to no travel: Most content creators shoot videos and write their content from the comfort of their homes. Specific types of content such as travel or food-related content need creators to go places but at their own liberty. You can easily settle at a cafe near their workplace for a few hours and get a considerable amount of work done.

  • No distractions: Whether you’re a teacher, a blogger, a musician, or any other kind of content creator, your initial days are entirely focused on making quality content. There are no forms, no records, money to pay or receive. Once you start making it big, there is some networking and marketing to deal with, and that too is entirely under your control. It’s your solo startup.

  • Flexibility: As you are the boss and the team, you can decide if you want to work on your content for two days straight and then not work at all for a week. This is one feature that attracts most creators towards full-time content creation professions.

  • Shorter formats: A piece of content on the Internet can be as long as a video series or as short as a social media post. You can start with as short a format as convenient for you, and then pace your progress. You can even economize by creating a bunch of content pieces over the weekend and uploading them on each day of the week.

Are you selling more than your knowledge?

On paper, it sure looks like content creation is a time-efficient endeavor. You’re the know-it-all and do-it-all of the little venture. You already have the knowledge and skills, all you have to do is share and sell them. But it doesn’t quite work that way without some strategizing.

You might find yourself spending too much time editing which isn’t your skill while music is. You might procrastinate a lot and lose your traction with no one to hold you accountable for regular posting. You might make a lot of efforts to engage with followers and distract yourself from your core content creation goal. That’s when you sell your precious time along with knowledge.


Here are some quick tips to focus your energies only on selling your knowledge and talents without investing an unnecessary amount of time doing so.


Optimizing time and talent as a content creator

Content Creation

Here’s how you can streamline your content creation activities in a way that most of your time is left to focus on creation.


  • Fixed hours: Being an online content creator, or even an influencer does not mean that you need to be online all the time. Dedicate a fixed time slot every day or every week for your content, and work on it with a single-minded focus. Dedicate time to check and respond to comments and messages, too. Make sure it doesn’t creep into your regular life. Focus on getting more done in less time.

  • Create a follower community: The time management conundrum becomes real once you make it slightly big. You have a lot of people to interact with, and it might get overwhelming. What you can do is create a follower community, a student group, a forum where your followers can interact with each other. This way, they remain engaged with your work even when you’re not actually talking to them.

  • Set boundaries: Apart from setting fixed hours for interaction and work, you also need to set personal boundaries in other ways. It is good to be approachable, but there should be a limit to one-on-one interactions. When these interactions increase, they will take up a lot of time unnecessarily. Create tools such as FAQs, explainer videos, etc. to help with basic queries. For further interaction, set rules related to time and platform and make them clear in advance.

  • Feedback and strategy: Content creation is as much of business as any other. You cannot go on producing content without keeping track of reactions. Have a scheduled feedback absorption regularly and follow it with strategizing accordingly for upcoming content. This will save a lot of time spent on struggling with changing numbers and responses from audiences.

  • Automate payments: Don’t have a pay-per-convenience model for any content that you sell for money. Instead of giving your audience the freedom to choose any mode and time of payment, make an automated process. Have a set of options that suit you, and enable auto-deduction for subscriptions. The less you have to bother with administrative processes, the more time you save for actual work.

  • Specific objectives for each content piece: Your objective needn’t just be long-term. Having a specific objective for each content piece and drawing it out on a calendar will enable you to work backward on each content piece. Once you streamline and align this system, creation, marketing, and management will be achieved simultaneously.


At the end of the day…

Whether you are a part-time or full-time content creator, you are in this for the creation. You don’t want it to feel like a job. There should be limits to your time investment, don’t give it away for free. To optimize time, but not the passion you put in. One of those things cannot happen without the other.

As a teacher, you leave all your troubles behind when you enter a classroom. For those few hours, your only troubles are your students and their education.

What’s the difference between Master Shifu and Mark Manson? Master Shifu didn’t have to market his lessons. 


In the real world, Mark Manson had to build a following on his blog over several years before he could publish a global bestseller, charge for access to his website, and create successful paid online course.


But as an online teacher in 2020, your marketing path isn’t as difficult as his.


Since the pandemic, listings for teaching-related roles on Indian job portal naukri.com have increased four-fold. Every other connection on LinkedIn is either teaching or learning new things online.


The surge only means that the initial phase of convincing a new audience about the credibility of the offering is over, it is now just about convincing them that your personal offering is worth their money and trust.


Secondly, everyone is a social marketer today. Your social media profiles are essentially marketing for yourself, so you’re not exactly new to marketing. If you too have a great online course but not a great marketing plan, here’s where you can start.


Homework for marketing your online course


1.Establish your expert authority

How to Market Online Course and Boost Sales 1

You are the face of the online course. You need more than just a LinkedIn profile to convince students. It starts with simple things such as posting advice on social media and engaging in conversations on Quora and Reddit.


There is something for you to capture on each platform. Make a list of your achievements and promote them strategically on each of them. More importantly, keep reading and sharpening your skills to stay fresh and updated. 


2.Profile your target audience

Online Course

Every good marketer starts with profiling their target audience. Determine who your best prospective student is, and create a few sample profiles based on the following questions.

  1. What age group do they belong to?
  2. Where do they live?
  3. How much do they/their parents earn?
  4. What are their hobbies?
  5. What kind of content do they consume online?
  6. What attracts them to your subject matter?
  7. Who makes buying decisions for them and how?

Once you establish your online authority, it’ll be easier for you to 

interact with, study, and profile your target audience.


3.Identify problems and solutions

Online Course

Once you know your target audience, you will understand what exactly they need in your subject area that they aren’t getting from your competitors.


Let’s say, you’re a soft skills instructor. There is no dearth of your kind. But you find out that middle-aged professionals with a considerable amount of work experience, mothers returning after a break, or people making drastic career changes all have their specific needs. 


Is there anyone who is catering to the nervousness that comes with being out of touch for a year or two, or the uncertainty of changing industries at 35? Can you delve deeper and tackle these? 


Conduct thought experiments, talk to your audiences, and zero down on a core purpose for your course that you can spell out in one comprehensive sentence.


For example, “My course will help busy working mothers learn a set of 7-10 quick, healthy recipes that they can prepare for themselves and their children”.


10 Ways To Market Your Online Course

Online Course

Once your homework is done, you can start drawing your real marketing strategy. If you’re completely new to marketing, take it as you are learning something new yourself in the process of teaching something new to others! 


1.Optimize your website

If you create a course on any popular online course marketplace, you will have to play by their rules at every step of the way. With a customizable platform such as FreshLMS, your website will become your voice. Everything from the colors and fonts you to lesson plans will be an extension of your marketing plan.

Think about how each of these decisions reflects upon your brand, and make the most of the following features of FreshLMS

  1. Heavy on-course personalization
  2. Ideal user journeys 
  3. Prompt quizzes and assessments
  4. Custom domains for every course
  5. Effortless payment unification
  6. Smart third-party integrations
  7. Completely Whitelabel and re-brandable features
  8. Next-gen reporting and analytics 

2.Start your own blog/podcast

Think carefully about everything from the name of your blog to the content. Once you build a strong following for your blog or podcast, your expertise will be established. Prospective students get a glimpse of your teaching abilities from the way you explain concepts in your articles and podcasts.


3. Sales funnel 

A sales funnel, as technical as it sounds, is a very simple model depicting a consumer’s journey from knowing about your product to finally buying it. The generic sales funnel is divided into 5 steps. 

  1. Awareness
  2. Opinion
  3. Consideration
  4. Preference
  5. Purchase


Create a custom funnel for your target audience, and decide the

touchpoints you can explore at each step. For example, your blog 

might be the prime touchpoint for the awareness phase, while 

social media can help your target audience in shaping opinion.


4.Social media strategy

It’s time to use your personal accounts to market your online course, as you are the essence of your offering. These 5 platforms are a must in your marketing plan. You can add other niche platforms depending on your course content and audience.


  • Facebook: Audiences across age groups and professions are active on Facebook. You can explore features such as Facebook Live, Stories, and interest-based groups to drive your course.

A business page linked with your Instagram business page could also be a good idea for targeting the right people.


  • Instagram: An Instagram page is a must for creative course teachers. That doesn’t mean business and strategic online course cannot be marketed on this platform.

With features such as QnA, polls, and the immense creative potential of Instagram, it becomes a great place to interact with your audience and register yourself in their minds.


  • YouTube: You can treat YouTube videos as practice course videos. You could even upload these and send them only to a select few people for feedback. Or you could publicize them on all other social platforms and gauge reactions from your social circle as well as the audience on YouTube at large.

  • Twitter: Twitter can serve the same purpose as your blog or LinkedIn page, in a limited number of characters. Comment on new developments in your course area and use trending hashtags, mainly to add to your credibility and online exposure.

  • LinkedIn: If not to connect with your audience, LinkedIn is surely a great place to connect with fellow teachers and experts, to keep track of businesses in your field. Having an illustrious  LinkedIn profile in addition to creative Instagram pages and blogs can help in adding to your professional credibility.

5.Give and take: testimonials and guest blogs

You can give influencers in your field free access to your course and ask them to publish an honest review on their pages. Additionally, you can contact credible blogs and pages, and find out if you can publish a guest blog, a guest post, a handle takeover, or a video post based on your subject matter. They should generally allow you to promote your social handles, website, and other content.


6.Collaborations

Online teaching need not be a solo endeavor. Through social conversations, you can get in touch with fellow teachers, combine your strengths, and publish collaborative content. 


If you are putting together a comprehensive cooking course and know an expert baker, you could have them conduct one special lesson in your online course. Collaborations help both parties and give them access to each other’s audiences.


7.Live webinars and events 

Live webinars can give you a good classroom test. Reading your blogs and posts is one thing, but watching you speak and interact is what can truly convince people that you can be a good teacher.


Once you have a good following on your blog and social accounts, host a live webinar, and look for opportunities to take part in events as a speaker, panelist, etc.


8.Discounts: to offer or not to offer

Even after being one of the most successful teachers in the world, Mark Manson sells online course in a package along with exclusive blog articles and other content. Discounts and offers are not necessarily a bad idea, whether you’re starting out or are established.


They only increase the number of registrations, which means increased exposure that helps branding in the long run. Just make sure to not over-discount and maintain your standards.


9.Audience interactions

Audience interaction doesn’t just consist of personal responses to messages and comments. It also includes regular QnA sessions, actively seeking feedback, sharing positive feedback that you receive, and rewarding loyal audiences. 


Rewards can be something as small as sharing screenshots of their positive feedback, their well-made assignments, or sharing personalized advice. 


 10.Paid ads 

This step is not extremely necessary, but it can provide a great reach. Paid Google ads, social ads, YouTube ads, and website ads give you great access to your audience.


Spending money to make money might not be everyone’s idea of a great marketing plan, and you can take your time to evaluate this option. 


Final note

Your marketing plan is almost as important as your online course design. The good thing is that none of the above mentioned online platforms are alien to you. After a few more days of racking your brains and you will have made your perfect marketing plan.


So go on, become the world’s next favorite music teacher, business strategist, brewer, or any other kind of teacher, and enter the marketing hall of fame simultaneously!

The world is changing at a rapid pace. Robots are doing human work, Artificial Intelligence is predicting consumer behavior, and automation tools are personalizing the customer experience. 30 years ago, these trends made good fodder for science fiction novels and movies.

Today, it has become a reality. Technology has changed the way you work and live. Your company has no time to waste. It has to embrace the changes and become future-ready quickly.

So, how can companies keep themselves relevant?

The answer lies in the core of your company – your employees.

Gyan Nagpal, an award-winning author, had written, “In times of rapid disruption and change, what we often realize quite painfully, is that all we have are experts on yesterday. No one is a true expert on tomorrow.”

If you want to be the change-maker in your industry or be recognized as a future-ready company, you must prepare your employees for the future.

This can happen only by practicing continuous learning.

How to Implement Continuous Learning in Your Company


There are various ways to train your employees. But the two popular methods of training are:

1. Offline training

Offline training or classroom training refers to conducting training sessions in classrooms. The advantage of offline training is that it offers a one-to-one interaction with the trainer. Participants can get their queries resolved immediately. The downside of it is the cost and coordination.  

Why Employee Training Must Happen Online? 2

From arranging logistics to scheduling training keeping the trainer and employee’s availability requires a lot of back and forth planning. Not to forget the additional costs of travel and hospitality that you have to incur to make your trainers comfortable.

There are also chances of participants not turning up on the day of training due to unforeseen work commitments.


2. Online training

Online training can happen in various forms. It can happen in the form of a webinar or a live session with the trainer, or it can be an on-demand training uploaded on websites or the company’s intranet if it is internal training.  

Why Employee Training Must Happen Online? 3

The downside of online training could be a bad user experience due to weak internet connectivity. Another issue could be that a self-paced format would also lead to employees procrastinating on learning and delaying the completion of the course.

However, these issues have to be solved by the employees themselves. They need to dedicate time to training.


Why Must Employee Training Happen Online?


To foster continuous learning, employee training must happen online. Here are a few reasons why we believe it must happen online.

1. Collaborate and Make Learning Fun:

Contrary to popular beliefs, online training can be collaborative in nature and can be an enjoyable experience for your employees too. Employees can ask questions and receive solutions from other community members and trainers. 

Why Employee Training Must Happen Online? 4
You can also make learning engaging by adding social sharing buttons for participants to share their completion certificates online. An intuitive interface with quizzes and games can make learning fun for your employees.

2. Self-paced Learning:

The advantage of online training is that employees can access it anytime, anywhere. They can watch it on their mobile phone while traveling or access it on their laptop on a workday when there is less work. Learning needs time and dedication. 

Why Employee Training Must Happen Online? 5

Given the fast-paced environment, your employees work in; they might miss out on the training. Online training solves this pain point by giving employees the benefit of learning at their own pace. They can pause and start the lesson again from where they stopped.

3. On the Go Micro-Learning:

In this world of information overload, employees may find lengthy courses overwhelming. Breaking them into a small, digestible form of micro-lessons will help employees to understand the concepts better and faster.

Easy with Micro Learning


4. Reduce the Cost of Training:

Online courses are cost-effective because companies will no longer have to spend money on the logistics, and trainer’s expenditure. Companies have to just upload their courses on a learning management system (LMS) and provide access to all the employees.

reduce-cost
5. Employees can Become Trainers:

With online training, even employees can become trainers. All they need to do is build a course and upload it to the LMS. With employees becoming trainers, you can create an innovative learning culture in your organization.

Sales as a function is a combination of soft skills and product knowledge. They bring revenue to your company. They are the face of your company. So, it is critical to ensure that they are well-trained in all aspects. It is a myth to believe that salespeople do not require any specific training. Companies invest a lot in developing products, marketing, and recruitment, but never on their sales team. However, a research study by Harvard Business Review shows that companies that invested in training their people were 9% more effective than their competitors. It can even improve sales and profits by 24%. 


An ideal sales training program lasts for 90 days and could even go up to a year. However, in a fast-paced environment, dedicating three months to a year is too much of an ask.


Hence, the best way to address this by conducting sales training online. Let’s look at how online sales training could benefit your company.


8 Reasons to do Sales Training Online


1. Up-to-Date Product Demos


Your products will go through multiple updates and revisions. Your sales team cannot give a demo of a product as old as two years to your customers. But neither can they spend time getting acquainted with the changes frequently. Online sales training will give them an understanding of the product and help them stay updated. 

Product Demos


2. On-board New Sales People Faster and Easier


As mentioned earlier, typically, it takes 90 days for a new salesperson to be onboarded. Online sales training enables the new employee to learn about the company, the products, and the sales processes, and work simultaneously. The online training also does not go on for 90+ days. So, it’s easier and faster to onboard new salespeople.


employee onboarding

3. Reduce the Cost of Training


On average, sales training costs $954,070 for most companies. You will also incur costs on arranging the logistics and travel expenses of trainers, which could go up to  $103,750. You can reduce these costs by taking your sales training online. Trainers can record the sessions from wherever they are located, and you can upload it to your learning management system (LMS) for everybody’s easy access.

reduce-cost


4. On-the-go Micro Learning


Micro-learning is about breaking down learning content into a small, digestible format. With the attention span of humans becoming as less as a goldfish, micro-learning is the best way to ensure that the learners understand the concepts better. Micro-learning works on the 90/20/8 principle, which means people’s attention span wanes after the first 8 minutes. Considering how busy the salespeople are, learning a huge chunk of information can be overwhelming for them. With online sales training, you can break the huge chunk of information into 3-5 minutes lessons, making the learning more interesting and impactful for salespeople. 

Easy with Micro Learning


5. Learn from Successful Sales People


Scheduling training sessions with successful salespeople can be cumbersome, and you cannot do it regularly. In online sales training, you can arrange live sessions with successful salespeople or even record their training and upload it as an on-demand training lesson. This will help your team learn the best practices from the best people in the industry. 

Learn from successful salespeople

6. Learn at your Pace


Time is a major challenge for salespeople. Sometimes they have to miss in-class learning sessions when they are on the field or traveling for meetings. This can impact their learning. With online sales training, your team can assess all the lessons anytime using any device they desire. They can learn at their pace from wherever they are without impacting their work. They can even pause and resume or rewind the courses to learn better.

learn anytime anywhere

7. Test your Learning through Chapter / Module-level Quiz


To ensure that your salespeople have understood the concepts correctly, you can test their learning after every chapter or module through quiz and gamification. From scenario-based questions to multiple-choice questions, you can do many things if you have the right LMS platform. A chapter or module-wise quiz is the best way to gain clarity on the progress of your team members.

Quiz


8. Collaborate and make Learning fun


Who said online learning is a lonely activity? You can make it as fun and engaging as classroom training. You can develop online communities for participants to share information or queries on the forum and receive support from other members. You can also integrate social sharing so participants can share their progress or announce the completion of training on social media. The idea is to make the course as engaging for the participants as possible.


Collaborate and make Learning fun

Some lessons are learned in college, online, and in our workplaces. And then there are some that we learn when we join a new organization. These training are unique to that organization. They are mandatory for all employees so they can be onboarded into the organization in the right way. In this blog, we will talk about the five mandatory pieces of training every organization must provide to its employees. Let’s get started!


Five mandatory pieces of training that every organization must do


1. Employee onboarding
 

Employee onboarding


Do you know organizations that have an effective onboarding program retain
50% more new employees than organizations that don’t? Onboarding programs are meant to introduce the new employees to the culture, values, and rules of the organization.

The objective is to ensure that the employee is aware of the organizational culture before they start working.
Onboarding is different from orientation. Unlike orientation, where only the HR is involved in welcoming the new employees, onboarding requires the leaders from different departments to introduce their role to the new employees. It is, therefore, important to structure your onboarding process in the right way. The absence of a well-structured onboarding program could lead to a high employee attrition rate.

How can FreshLMS help you in mandatory training?

Gone are those days when employees could spend a week or two acclimatizing themselves to the organization’s culture. Today, organizations follow an agile culture. Faster go-to-market is their priority. In such a culture, spending two weeks in mandatory training would mean a loss of time and resources. 


However, this training is equally important for the long-term performance of the organization. Without this training, organizations could face many problems in terms of miscommunication, misunderstandings, lack of transparency, and even a dent in the brand’s reputation. Given the need for training and the lack of time, the only way an organization can reach a mid-point is by using a learning management system (LMS). LMS enables you to build online courses that can be assessed by your employees anytime, anywhere, without causing any hindrance to their daily tasks.
