🗞 Course Creators Weekly #30 🗓 January 18th, 2021 - What Does "Adding Value" Really Mean
- Start by listening and acknowledging people—sometimes that's all it takes
- Niche down, so you can uncover specific problems a specific group of people face
- Make a list of people in your market + where they hang out, so you may reach them
- Find out what's important to them, and how you can help them reach their goals
- Understand the Curse of Knowledge—your "basic" knowledge could be invaluable
- Play the long game—it takes time

Jacques Hopkins had his Piano course hosted on ClickFunnels for years, and only recently he decided it was time to switch. That's what he talks about in this episode. Here are my key takeaways:
- Your choice of platform isn't important, so long as your students get results
- If you want community, having your course + community together can be a big plus
- Consider if a branded mobile app is something your audience needs or cares about
- If you're just starting out, stick with simple choices that require the least upfront work
- Consider your students' taste + needs—pick what's right for you and them
In case you're wondering (aren't you?), Jacques went with something I've never heard of before, and neither had he: BuddyBoss. There's a lot of context behind that choice, so if you're interested to know more, I suggest having a listen!
