Over at Rise to the Top, David Siteman Garland asks “Why Should I Create My Own Online Course?

He identifies 5 reasons, including:

  1. Leveraging your time (as opposed to selling your time hour by hour, as in personal coaching)
  2. Building a solid income stream with a reasonable number of customers (dozens or hundreds)
  3. Packaging and selling what you already know and want to share
  4. Positioning yourself as a trusted authority
  5. Strengthening your overall sales funnel and supporting the sales of other products/services

Do you have other reasons for creating online courses?
