Empowering Legacy: How To Start Crafting Your Own Digital Course to Educate and Inspire

As mothers and achievers, the expertise and unique solutions you possess are invaluable, not just for immediate problem-solving but also for shaping enduring wisdom. Your potential digital course is more than just a class—it’s a legacy for your family and those you inspire. Let’s explore actionable ways to unearth your digital course ideas that can make a profound impact for you and your potential students.

Scout the Market Landscape

Research your competition thoroughly to understand what resonates with similar audiences. While you observe each one, remember that your unique approach, influenced by your motherhood and personal experiences, can offer a fresh perspective even on common subjects.

Action Steps For Researching The Market Landscape:
  • Research and list successful digital courses that cater to moms and women.
  • Evaluate their unique selling points and consider how your unique voice could offer something different.
  • Develop a course outline that reflects your perspective and experiences.

Tune In to Your Community

Each of us is part of a community.  Think about your personal and professional spaces. Your friends, your peers – each community space provides a flood of potential information from which to glean intel. Consider the questions and discussions within each space – it holds a goldmine for digital course topics. Understanding each person’s challenges and aspirations provides you with the foundation to create a digital course that directly addresses their needs.

Action Steps For Tuning In To Your Community:
  • Engage in communities, noting common concerns.
  • Gather data to identify patterns and potential course topics.
  • Use your community’s language in your course material to resonate deeply with them.

Ask the Question

If you’re unsure what your potential student (audience) needs, ask them directly. You can use surveys or polls within social media to gather candid responses and tailor your digital course to address their shared struggles. This also gives you a starting point to test your possible course ideas right out of the gate. A beginner’s tip when facing the fear that may come from facing a blank page and considering what questions to ask is to start with one. That one question will start the conversation, and that will lead to other questions.

Action Steps For Ask The Question:
  • Create and share a survey or poll within your community.
  • Analyze the responses for possible digital course ideas.
  • Begin outlining a course that directly answers each of the questions shared.

Explore Popular Books

Bestselling books in your potential niche reveal the topics that captivate your audience. Use these as inspiration to create your digital course content that complements or expands on these subjects. Pro tip: a great place to find information on what is possibly missing from a book (which you could cover in your digital course) is the book’s review section. Read what readers say about what they like and dislike, and use this as an idea starter.

Action Steps For Book Exploration:
  • Investigate popular books and their key subjects.
  • Incorporate the most resonant themes into your digital course.
  • Craft content that fills gaps left by these books.

FAQ Deep-Dive

Common questions reveal common needs. You can find FAQ questions around your potential topic by investigating competitor websites, their social media comments, or software and website support documents; the places are endless. Use these FAQs by turning them into content modules for your digital course, providing valuable solutions.

Action Steps For FAQ Deep Dive:
  • Document questions from FAQ sections related to mom-centric topics.
  • Build an eCourse curriculum that addresses these questions thoroughly.
  • Ensure your course provides clear, actionable solutions.

Resource Reconnaissance

The tools and resources suggested within your community or peer circles can guide the practical aspects of your digital course. The opportunity for you lies in the creation of a bridge between these resources and efficient utilization through your digital course. Consider all the tools and resources you use every day. Think about ways you’ve mastered or used them in your own unique way to solve a problem, and before you know it, you have a digital course around your solution.

Action Steps For Resource Reconnaissance:
  • List frequently mentioned tools and resources.
  • Develop content that helps people fully leverage these.
  • Create guides or tutorials as part of your course offerings.

Email Insights

One thing you can count on most people having is an inbox. Our own inboxes hold a treasure trove of potential ideas. In the newsletters and emails we receive from others, if you pay attention, you’ll discover trends and themes in the content. Have a newsletter or get questions yourself on topics? Great! These can be the cornerstone for your digital course’s modules, ensuring you are addressing real-world concerns.

Action Steps For Email Insights:
  • Categorize common questions from your inbox.
  • Use these to inform your course content.
  • Align your eCourse with these trends for relevance.

Keyword Clues

Your potential student’s searches are hints towards what they want to learn. If you haven’t done so yet, investigate possible keywords and search through Google Trends. You’ll find all kinds of possible topics and can also test your own ideas to see if people are already looking for those solutions. By incorporating these into your digital course, you ensure that the content you may create will be sought-after and easily discoverable.

Action Steps For Keyword Clues:
  • Conduct keyword research to find hot topics.
  • Design your content around these keywords.
  • Optimize your digital course title and description for search engines.

Search Term Research

What people search for to find your content can lead to insightful digital course topics. In addition to Google Trends, you can investigate Google Search Console and see what queries are being searched. You can also include them directly in your course to provide value and attract organic interest.

Action Steps For Search Term Research:
  • Use tools like Google Search Console for analysis.
  • Develop content that answers these search queries.
  • Align your eCourse with what your audience actively seeks out.
