Course Pricing Strategies

Your Guide to Confidently Pricing Your Online Course

Pricing courses is, without a doubt, the most subjective topic I’m asked about when helping clients create courses. Pricing feels so personal. We attach the value of our hard work, time, emotional investment, expectations, and potential to the price of products that we’ve spent considerable time and energy creating.

This is a very healthy perspective or situation, but it’s also a slippery slope. The value of your course is about much more than what you initially think. In the end, it’s not how you feel about your product that matters most. 

What matters most is the buyer’s perceived value of your course.

This book will help you develop course pricing strategies based on several critical factors including:

  • Competitor prices

  • Outcome values

  • Cost of course delivery

  • Industry norms and buyer habits

  • Payment types

  • Sharing revenue

  • Running sales promotions

  • Taxes (ugh...)

Monetize Your Book with a Course" should be mandatory reading for every author who hopes to earn a living from the concepts they teach. Writing a book helps you establish authority. Creating a course helps you to actually earn a living from what you know.
