The Launch Accelerator Challenge is specifically designed for motivated creators who need guidance and a set schedule to hold them accountable and help them take action. If any of these descriptions sound familiar, you won’t want to miss it:

  • You have an idea for an online course, but you want to be sure customers will buy it before you put the energy into completing it.

  • You’ve thought about (or started) creating a course in the past, but something always distracts you from finishing it.

  • You think that being ready to launch means having a perfectly polished, complete version of your course finished.

  • You don’t want to wait to make money until after you’ve completed your entire course. You want to get paid for the work you’re doing now.

Why a pre-sale?

To pre-sell means to sell your course prior to it being fully completed—and it’s the most effective way to take your course from concept to customers, for three main reasons:

1

Validate your course idea

You’ll make sure your course idea is something that will actually sell before spending the time to create all the course content.

2

Start earning sooner

You can start earning money from your course while you’re still working on it—so you’re getting paid for your time.

3

Improve your content

You’ll get feedback and testimonials from early buyers that will allow you to create a better course.

By joining Launch Accelerator, you’ll learn how to build out the foundation and key marketing assets of your next online course in 30 days so that it’s ready to pre-sell.

Here’s what you’ll accomplish each week:

Week One

  • Set up your Teachable site and customize the colors, fonts, logo, and URL

  • Decide on your course topic and the intended outcome for your students

  • Set up payments—so you can get paid


Week Two

  • Set up your sales page and tailor it to a pre-sale

  • Determine your course pricing

  • Create your thank you and checkout pages

“I’m not sure I’m ready. I need time."

Here’s a little secret: If you wait until you feel 100% ready, you might never get started. This challenge is designed to help kickstart your next course launch, no matter where you’re starting from.

“I want guidance on what to do.”

This challenge is about more than, well, challenging you. It’s also about giving you the exact steps you need to take to get your course ready to sell in less than a month. You’ll have guidance and support every step of the way.

“I’m nowhere near launching my course. I have so much content to finish first.”

You can pre-sell your course before it’s finished. This way, you’ll know your course idea is something that will sell before spending the time to create your content. As a bonus, you can start earning while you’re creating your content—so you’re getting paid for your time.

“I don’t have an email list or any sort of audience.”

Even if you don’t have an email list or follower count in the thousands, you still have an audience. We’ll help you tap into your existing network to find your perfect customers.

Launch Accelerator is open to all Teachable customers on a paid plan. Click below to select a plan and join the challenge.
