Setting the Stage for Success

Lock in Your Filming Date

The first step is non-negotiable: set a specific date for filming and stick to it. This date should be sacred, a time when you’re fully dedicated to creating your course. By blocking off a substantial chunk of time (think 6-8 hours), you can dive deep into the content without the usual interruptions that fragment your focus.

Create a Distraction-Free Zone

To produce your best work, you need an environment that’s free from distractions. This means arranging care for children, turning off your phone, and shutting down all notifications. Remember, if something truly critical arises, people will find a way to reach you. Treat this time as a golden opportunity to concentrate fully on your course.

The Filming Blueprint

Set Clear Targets

Before the camera rolls, have a clear plan. This includes deciding the order of videos to be filmed and preparing all necessary materials. Start with videos that require you to be on camera, as these often need more energy and preparation. Then, you can move on to screen shares or slide pack videos, which can be more relaxed.

Organize Your Content

Organize your filming schedule by categorizing the types of videos. Begin with face-to-camera videos, followed by whiteboard sessions, and then TV videos. This sequence allows you to manage your energy and resources efficiently, ensuring that you’re fresh and engaged for each type of content.

Making Filming Enjoyable

Prepare for a Smooth Experience

The key to a successful filming day is preparation. Ensure you have everything you need at hand, from meals and snacks to water to keep you hydrated. Consider your environment – make it comfortable and enjoyable, whether that means playing your favorite music, using essential oils, or even filming in a cozy setting.

Embrace the Process

Filming your course should be an experience you enjoy. If it helps, change your environment. Some course creators find booking a hotel room for a couple of nights allows them to focus entirely on filming, free from the usual distractions of home or office.

Post-Filming Strategy

Editing and Designing

After filming, it’s time to edit your videos and design your worksheets. Consider outsourcing the design work to save time and ensure a professional look. This phase is about refining your content and making it ready for your audience.

Planning for Future Modules

Remember, you don’t have to film your entire course in one go. Start with one or two modules, then plan additional filming sessions as needed. This approach keeps the process manageable and maintains the quality of your content.

Conclusion

Efficient and effective online course creation is a blend of careful planning, focused execution, and enjoying the process. 

By following these steps, you can create a course that not only educates but also engages and inspires your audience. Remember, the journey of creating an online course is as important as the destination.

I really learned a lot from the pre training. My doer was matched with me perfectly. She has removed 100's of hours of work from me and done it in a way that is far better than I was doing it

“I love my Outsourced Doer - it's so handy that she has access to Grace’s training AND she has a Team Leader to guide her when she gets stuck. It’s only been a week, but I can tell this is going to be a long and supportive relationship! Thanks so much Grace and Adam for this amazing resource. 🙂
