Dave Kaminski – The No Bullshit Digital Course Boot Camp
The Raw, Refreshing, Honest Truth On Creating and Selling Digital Courses
Big surprise, I’m selling a course on how to create and sell digital courses. You couldn’t see that coming, could you?
I actually had no plans on making this course. Then why am I doing it? Because I’ve been contacted an annoyingly-number-of-times by people who have purchased training from other “course experts” who are looking for help.
As gruff and as blunt as I may come across on this web page, the fact of the matter is that I do care about the e-learning and digital course industry. Shit, I’m one of the dudes who helped build it. And it’s obvious that most of the training being peddled out there on this matter is over-priced, over-hyped and woefully under-delivers.
So I’m sharing the no bullsh truth on what it takes and what you have to do to successfully create and sell digital courses.
Let’s Be Clear On This From The Get-Go… This Training Is All About The DIY Approach
What in the hell does that mean?
It means you’re going to learn what I do. Which means having total control over your digital course business. Which means you’re not relying on any third-party platforms for your courses.
Specifically, that means I won’t be teaching you how to use Kajabi, Teachable, Thinkific, Podia, CourseCats or any of the other dozen or so course platforms out there. In fact, I’m going to tell you straight-up to never use them.
Here’s why. You never want to put your money (income from course sales) in the hands of a course platform. If their platform goes down, you’re fuck. If they go out of business, you’re fuck. If they decide to kick you off their platform, you’re fuck. Furthermore, it’s a significant monthly expense you don’t need and if you ever want to leave them, you will be in for massive headaches.
Instead, I’m going to show you how to do-it-yourself (DIY). You’ll save a boatload of money and have total control over everything.
Yes, the DIY route is more technical. But guess what? That’s my specialty…I take technical shit and make it easy for you to understand. In fact, with my training, you’ll find going the DIY route to be easier than using one of the course platforms.
This is a HUGE benefit to you. The “course experts” will tell you to use one of those course platforms because a) they don’t know how to do the technical shit and b) they are earning an affiliate commission from those course platforms. I’ll be saving you a ton of money and eliminating future headaches by teaching you how to do it like I do it…the right way…the DIY way.
Clear on that? Good. Now let’s take a look at everything else I’ll be covering in Dave Kaminski – The No Bullshit Digital Course Boot Camp.
Everything About Camera Tech
You can’t sell a digital course if you don’t have video. So here I’ll be covering everything you need to know, do and use when it comes to camera tech. That includes cameras, audio, lighting and everything else involved with the topic. In short, I’m going to show you how to make your videos look sensational using cheap stuff. Just like I do.
Everything About Screen Recording Tech
Maybe your digital course isn’t going to have on-camera video. Instead, you’ll be doing all screen recording videos. Cool. There’s nothing wrong with that. Here I’m going to show you need to know, use and do, whether you’re using Windows or Mac. You’re going to get to see exactly how I make my own screen recording videos. It will save you enormous time and headaches.
Everything About Video Editing Software
Once again, video is typically the star of digital courses. And when you work with video, you need video editing software. This is an area where you can go down so many rabbit holes, but I’m just going to give you the no bullsh** facts on what to use and exactly what to do when editing course videos.
Everything About Workflow
The most time-consuming part of digital course creation is making all of the videos. Once again, I’m going to give you the no bullsh** approach, where you’ll learn the exact workflow I use to complete entire courses sometimes in under 1 day. This is an area that people usually screw-up and as a result, get burned out and abandon their course. I’m going to make sure that doesn’t happen to you.
Everything About Course Ideas
I don’t know what to sell. I’m not good at anything. I don’t have any skills I could teach through video. Actually, you do. We all do. Come on, are you going to let a 12 year-old girl “make bank” selling make-up tutorials, while you claim you can’t do anything? What you need is a change of perspective. There’s a reason I put the name “boot camp” in the title of this course. That’s because in area’s like this, you might need a kick in the ass to change your perspective. I’ll give it to you.
Everything About Delivering Courses
Your course is worthless unless people can watch it. And for them to watch it, they need to buy it. And you also need to keep the people who haven’t bought it out. This is the most technical part of the training, because there are lots of moving parts that make course delivery happen. Relax. This is my specialty. And I’m going to walk you through exactly what you need to do and use to make secure course delivery happen. Without swearing at your screen.
The Dark Side of Digital Courses
Spend 20 years doing something and you’re going to discover there’s a dark side to that something. In this section you’re going to get info that no one else can give you. Scammers, hackers, digital thieves, pain-in-the-ass-customers, the competition and more. Basically, everything you need to know about the people and events that can disrupt your otherwise blissful life as a digital course creator.
My Own Course Templates
New course creators always overlook this part. So how are customers going to view your course videos? Well those videos have to be on a page or pages. And then the process of creating those pages and getting your videos on them turns into another pain-in-the-ass task that makes people abandon their course idea. So to fix this, I’m just going to give you the templates I use for delivering my own course videos. Problem solved. With my templates, all you have to do is change the text, add your video links and you’re done. Easy peesy. You’re welcome.
