The online industry is broken.
Far too many “marketing gurus” make big promises they don’t deliver on.
They don’t set the expectations correctly with their clients.
They make millions of dollars while their online courses have a 1-2% success rate, and when their clients fail, they blame it on them.
They highlight successes of their star students but turn a blind eye on the students that don’t succeed.
This needs to end. NOW.
Yesterday, I wrote an email to my email list about how I can’t recommend an online course on starting an online business I used to recommend anymore. The response I received was overwhelming.
Apart from 1 mean hate email, my readers sent me a ton of encouragement, empathy, and thank you notes for sharing my opinion publicly.
I’m thankful for that.
But what’s going on in the online course industry is not about me. It’s not about one specific online course or one entrepreneur turning a blind eye. This kind of stuff happens all the time.
I turned a blind eye on it for far too long.
Because I had hope that it would change for the better.
Because I believed that what I was thought by my mentors was right. I saw only one way.
But over the past few years, I realized just how much I hated it.
That’s why you won’t see me selling recorded online courses any-more.
That’s why you won’t find any evergreen funnels on my website.
That’s why I no longer sell the courses that didn’t get my students the results that I wanted, without my involvement.
That’s why I never say that you can go through my online programs at 5-10 hours a week.
Even though I could earn a lot more money by doing that, I wouldn’t be able to sleep at night knowing I’m not delivering on the promises I made to my clients. I’d rather earn less, but have a clear conscience.
Instead, I focus on serving a smaller group of clients that I know I can help, work with them intimately, and always try to go above and beyond for them. I try to do better.
Unfortunately, not everyone does.
Some entrepreneurs do. And I respect them for that.
Some turn a blind eye to the problem. And I hate them for that.
Some have no idea how to do better. And I don’t blame them for that.
The truth is that today, more than ever, the industry is filled with false promises and false expectations.
And since for the past few years nobody did anything about it, I decided that I will.
I’m on a mission to fix the online course industry.
I know that I can’t change or influence everyone, especially people that seem to care more about filling their own pockets with passive income than with serving their clients in the best possible way.
But I know that thousands of you DO care.
And there are many other entrepreneurs out in the world that build a business for the right reasons.
It’s time for us to unite, and fix this problem together.
The online course industry has so much potential.
We can share the knowledge we’ve collected for years with people all over the world.
We can start movements. Tribes. Communities.
We can educate our students. Teach them. Coach them.
We can change their lives and make the world a better place through our laptops.
Because that’s what we’re all here for, right?
It’s not the money. It’s the impact.
Together, we can turn the online course industry from what it is into what it should be.
Because we care.
Now, of course, the journey won’t be easy.
Many people will disagree with us. Try to shut us down. Hate us.
But if we unite, I know we can do this.
I’ll do my best.
I’ll do whatever it takes to turn this industry around.
I’ll write articles and guides sharing what actually works.
I’ll talk about what it REALLY takes to build an online business in 2020.
I’ll help you out and support you in your journeys as much as I can with my knowledge and experience.
This is my commitment to you.
But I realize that I’m just one person.
And I can’t do this alone.
This is where I’d love your help.
You have a choice to do better in your business.
You can choose to build an online business that chooses impact over revenue.
You can inspire others to do the same.
Help me spread this message.
Talk to others about this.
Share this post with them.
Spread the word about it.
We can do better.
