If you’re selling an online course (or creating your first one), there are a TON of different strategies, checklists, blog posts, guides, and other trainings available.
The good news is that they cover just about everything you need to launch your course.
Then you launch your course and it’s awesome (hopefully!), but the not-so-good news is that usually after the launch is over there’s a time when you go from a bunch of sales…
…to no sales at all.
But don’t worry – if this has happened to you, you’re not alone.
