Finish Your Damn Course! (FYDC) is a 10-week guided program that gives you a roadmap for creating (or improving) your online course using proven Instructional Design principles.
Unlike other programs, FYDC will teach you how to validate and create a course that's focused on meaningful transformation--not just marketing fluff.
But marketing is important too. So you'll also learn how to apply marketing principles to plan and pre-sell your course.
All of this is wrapped in a hybrid format that includes self-paced curriculum & live sessions with me.
When does the program start and finish?
The first run of the program starts the week of September 2 and runs for 10 weeks (approx. 7 weeks of content, plus 3 independent work weeks).
How long will I have access?
You’ll get lifetime access to all of the course material including all lessons and templates, as well as lifetime access to the private community. If I ever add/change content or resources, you'll get acces to that too.
When will the live sessions be held?
On Tuesdays. (I'll poll the group to pick a time that works best for everyone).
What if I can't make the live sessions?
The live sessions will be held weekly. They will also be recorded, so if you can't make a session you can replay it at your convenience.
I have an existing course that I want to improve. Will the program be too basic for me?
Nope! This program is for course creators in what I call the "growth" stage: you have a course idea and an audience (or network) to sell to but you need help finishing your course. "Finishing" can mean launching your first course or applying the structure to take your existing course to the next level.
Do I need an email list to join this program?
Yes. Here's why: you'll learn key validation and launch strategies that work best with an active list of at least 150 people. If you don't have an email list, you'll need an existing client base or network you are actively engaged with and can market to. If you aren't there right now, your #1 focus should be listbuilding.
Does this program cover Instructional Design??
Yes. I’ll show you how to apply Backwards Design to create a course that gets results. You'll also learn advanced strategies like how to increase engagement in your course, choose the right activities, and how to make your content more actionable.
Will you show me how to build my course in Teachable/Thinkific/Podia etc?
No, we don't cover tech setup in this program. Most platforms have very helpful tech support to get you going.
Do you have non-profit pricing?
Unfortunately, no. My 1:1 Instructional Design consulting rates start at $7k, so this program is the BEST value if you want access to me.
If I change my mind can I get a refund?
Sure. You have 14 days from from your purchase date to request a refund. Since you'll get access to the content up-front and there are limited seats, there's no refunds after that time period. I'm happy to answer any questions you have to make sure the program is the right fit for you. Just email me at hello [at] zencourses [dot] co.
