Here are my best top tips on how can you quickly start creating your dream online course today. Let’s get your dream to done!
1. Use Done For You content
This is my favorite tips! If creating your course content is giving you nightmares, use shortcuts such as premade content and premade templates for online course business.
Try using Done-For-You content packages and teach your tribe with content in it.
You will not only get top-quality lessons on various topics, you can also customize and brand the content and really make your own.
Create a checklist, action plans, exercises, resource directories and more using the done for you content..
Using done-for-you content will cut your work enormously.
And not only, the done-for-you content is well-researched; but it also covers tons of topics that you might not think of.
(P/s Female CEO Club -my membership also offers a VIP Club which allows you to have full entire shop access to my products including done for you content, including forms and kits.)
You can take it a step further by adding your own unique voice to this structure, basic lesson content that you can expand on and customize yourself.
2. Use premade templates
You can also use helpful templates and software to set your course landing page and sales page up like Elementor or LeadPages® as a page builder that provides customizable, brand-able templates that will certainly fulfill this need.
This way, you can just plug and play the templates with just one click of installation. Plus there are various elegant, fun, and aesthetic templates that you choose and purchased online that fits your own style..
An example of the Sales Page Template made using Elementor is my own Bright and Sunny Sales Page Elementor Template.
The sections are strategically designed to walk your audience from problems to solutions which is your amazing course. It also has built-in bullets, checkboxes, and a pricing table that makes selling your course easier.

1. Cheap and affordable – for only $49, you get access to their Pro features. And if didn’t require annual support, you can just purchase one time

3. One-click installation. When you install the templates right, everything will look just like the demo! So what you see is what you get. You only need to customize the colors according to your brand and add in a few related links.

3. Use predesigned course Canva templates
Canva is my favorite design tool and one of the tools that I swear by in my life.
In fact, I started my digital business by selling Canva designs and templates.
Canva templates help me create my own online course at a breeze, especially when the templates are designed specifically for course creators.
For example, this Canva template is made with course creators and coaches in mind..

With these Canva templates, you can create as many courses and as many modules and lessons using the same repeated design, branding, and structures. You might change the style once in a while but branding repetition is key.
Why? Because repetition is one of the key building blocks of establishing authority. You need to consistently present content in the same way and in the same order. People find repetition reassuring.
It also helps “stamp” a process in their brains which builds a habit of returning to that process again and again.
