Yesterday, we looked at the ways the Christian Creatives prefer to learn in online courses. Today, let’s look at the ones that are at the bottom of that list And they are:
- Email drip campaigns.
- Teaching by 100% video
- Content on a learning platform (Teachable, Thinkific, Kajabi, etc.)
Certainly video and learning platforms are being pushed by the “experts” as the way to go. But what if you are not comfortable on video or can’t afford to put your course on fancy platform? Don’t despair! Those don’t seem to be deal-breakers with the online Christian Creative audience. Here is why I think those things landed in the bottom three:
Email Drip Campaigns – As we learned yesterday, people what access to the course material so they can work on it at their own pace, not waiting for the next email to drop in. But don’t discard email drip campaigns completely. They are a great way to deliver a daily devotion or a welcome series for new subscribers.
Teaching by 100% video – Video is great for increasing the connection between you and your audience, but it does limit where and how the content can be consumed. But video combined with written material and worksheets that reinforce what is taught is a better way to balance convenience and connection.
Learning Platforms – Learner management systems like Teachable, Thinkific, Kajabi and my new fave, Podia, makes your content look more professional, and allows a student to have access to all of the course materials in one handy dashboard. However, it can be frustrating to remember which course is in which program, keep up with the log-in info, etc.
So if FOMO based on “expert” advice is driving you to do something that doesn’t feel right to you, just stop. You know your audience and content better than anyone else. Look at the full range of options to deliver your material and choose the natural fit for you.
