The Foundations Courses
Does this sound like you?
~ You're a professional who usually works one on one with clients, you have a tonne of awesome content, but don't have a great deal of teaching 'qualifications' or experience teaching groups of adults.
~ Your top priority is that your clients achieve their goals, and that you are known as the go-to-expert in your niche. You know your content changes lives, so the last thing you want to be known for is a shoddy learning experience.
~ You're overwhelmed with the amount of content you have and don't know what to do with it. You know there is a product or a range of products you could create and sell, but you have no idea where to start.
What specifically is included in this course?
There is an introductory lesson, followed by 3 full lessons complete with tutorials, matching podcasts and worksheets. There is also a bonus guest interview with a copywriter.
Find out exactly whether you need each one, and follow specific links to the pre-reading materials which will give you a sneak peak into each of the lessons. If your interest isn't piqued by the introductory module embedded below, this course may not be for you!
Do you really NEED to be Developing Outcomes Based Products?
Outcomes based product development is about creating products that work so well, that your clients go away raving about the success they've had working with you. It's all about knowing the NEEDS of your clients, how they are best going to DIGEST, LEARN and APPLY that information, and then designing a product or service that seriously gets results.
If you don't do this? In a nutshell, they'll be telling others about you for all the wrong reasons! When you fail to really identify your client needs, the different ways people learn, and the exact expectations around the full user experience, you open yourself up to refund requests, mismatched expectations and a minefield of 'but I thought I was getting X' type complaints.
My advice? Be prepared. Be prepared to create a learning experience that gets raving reviews, touts you as a life changing expert and truly changes lives. Plan it properly and get it right the first time.

Please note that originally the FOUNDATIONS Level was an e-Course; therefore in the tutorials I may refer to Courses as 'Modules', and 'weeks' of the course, which refer to the 4 different Courses that are now housed in the FOUNDATIONS Level.
Learn how to fully get inside your clients' heads, so that you can begin to plan for their needs, to incorporate their specific circumstances including educational backgrounds and industry experience.
What happens when you don't, is that you start creating content for problems you THINK they have, or that you may have had when YOU were going through the same process, but 5 years on, the landscape has completely changed so pitching the same, or trying to solve the same problems still, is completely missing the mark. You may also find that you're telling them things they already know, insulting their intelligence and generally rubbing them up the wrong way.
Learn how to design for universal engagement, by catering for various learning styles and multiple intelligences.
Why is this so important? There are many different learning styles, and sometimes our preferences change depending on what we're learning. I'd much prefer to watch someone doing something mechanical like changing a tyre, before giving it a go myself, but with cooking? Hand me a recipe and let me work it out for myself. Do you know the preferred learning styles of your clients, for your content? Or are you delivering awesome content, in a mode that they simply won't engage with?
Learn how to fairly design all facets of the learning experience so that you and your clients know what to expect and where the boundaries are.
Because when you don't? Hold your hats! You'll be fielding a myriad of complaints and miscommunications over what people thought they were getting. Terms and Conditions are imperative but even before that, understanding exactly what you're delivering is crucial if you're going to clearly communicate that to your prospective clients. Under promise, over deliver, a sure fire recipe for referrals based business booming!
BONUS! In this interview you can listen in, and learn how to bring clarity to your copy, so that you can tap into your clients' needs, speak their language and be able to communicate clear expectations regarding the user experience. In essence, this interview brings together everything from this course on PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT: how to develop an outcomes based product that really speaks to your clients, from the perspective of a copy editor.
