#35: Prevalidate Your Course Idea

Season #3

When I first started my learning design business, I made a dumb mistake. I decided to create a course, but I didn’t connect with an audience. I didn't really even have an audience. When I launched, I realized that my audience wanted something different. I hadn’t validated my learning offer before I created it.

After that mistake, I developed a process for prevalidating learning offers. Here’s why and how this essential step works.

I don’t want your first learning offer to flop. You don’t want your first learning offer to flop. If you don’t prevalidate your course idea with your audience, you run a high risk of having your learning offer flop.

So go out and start talking to your audience. Have real conversations with your ideal student. Learn about their needs, their concerns, and the insights they have.

But to do this most effectively, you need a plan.

In this episode, I lay out the plan that I take to prevalidate courses.

After validating my course idea, I move on to preparing for my course launch — the topic of the next podcast episode in our series on creating learning offers.
