Don’t Teach Your Audience Too Much

There are several common mistakes when creating webinars and courses with a pitch in mind. Colin warns us that the biggest of these is overteaching. By not providing too much information upfront, your potential client won’t feel overwhelmed when it’s time for them to decide whether or not to sign up for more.

This can be a challenge. It takes vulnerability to get in front of an audience. We often compensate by over-demonstrating our expertise. Colin cautions us to avoid this by saving the meaty content for the course itself. Strike a balance between providing information and leading the audience to make a decision.

 

The Money is the Motivator

We all have an offer. But some people have hang-ups when it comes to asking money for it. Colin explains why charging for what you do is an important and good part of the process. It represents a motivator on their part to see the results of your offer.

Colin wants you to think of it this way: the money you ask your audience for is a sign of their motivation. They don’t need the information. It probably already exists somewhere for free. What they need is you. You’re the one who organizes the knowledge and creates systems for it to lead them to success.
