Learn the 3 Secrets to Launch & Sell High-Profit Online Courses Using AI

Podcast Transcript

Do you sometimes feel that you're not very confident in selling your products or perhaps you lack confidence in your coaching business? In this particular podcast, I'm going to teach you how to create a minimum viable product even before you launch, so you don't need to release a fully developed product until you test and see if there's market responsiveness.

In this podcast, I want to share with you a 10-step formula on how to create a minimum viable product, or MVP, even before you launch. Let's take a look at how I scaled my own business as an example. My first product was an affiliate marketing course where I taught people how to make money by selling other people's products. It was a digital product-based course, and initially, I didn't have my own product. Instead, I sold my mentor's products and earned commissions.

Once I realized there was a positive response to this particular topic, I decided to create my own product. The first version focused on affiliate marketing. However, as I received more feedback from my customers, they expressed an interest in learning about marketing, creating their own courses, products, and building their own ecosystems. This feedback prompted me to shift my focus towards teaching people how to create digital products, and that's when I started selling digital products.

As more and more people became my customers, I noticed that many of them weren't getting the results they desired because they were solely focused on being product sellers and not building communities. Taking this feedback into account, I began building an entire ecosystem around how to build digital communities. This phase continued for a while until I realized that selling memberships would be more effective than selling products. This led to the introduction of silver, gold, diamond, and quantum memberships, all based on the five-year journey I had gone through.

I'm sharing this with you to emphasize that I never had a concrete plan when I started. Everything was based on the minimum viable product concept. So, take note that there are 10 steps involved in making this work, especially if you're just starting out or if your current sales funnel isn't generating the desired results or responsiveness. If you lack confidence in any of these areas, rest assured that what I'm about to share in this podcast will amaze you. It will simplify and expedite the process of achieving results.

Now, let's dive into the first step: pick one problem that you want to solve. Close your eyes, delve deep within yourself, and think about the problem you see in the world that you're passionate about solving. This could be a business problem, a career problem, a health problem, a wealth problem, a relationship problem, or even a creativity problem in the areas of music, painting, or other creative arts.

The second step is to pick one target market that you want to serve. Do you want to serve parents, working professionals, entrepreneurs, business owners, mothers, or young professionals? Your ideal target market is someone who is similar to you. When I began my journey, I targeted people who were just like me but a couple of years behind. I had gained some experience, and that particular segment became my target market. They were individuals interested in personal development, had young families, wanted to make a difference in the world, and desired additional income for themselves and their families. I also focused on people from my own location, Bangalore and Chennai.

The third step is to pick one process or method to solve the problem. In my case, I chose affiliate marketing as a way to solve the money problem. While there are many ways to make money, such as real estate, stocks, or selling other products, I decided to start by making money online through affiliate marketing.

Similarly, in your case, the third step is to pick one method that aligns with you and that you're confident in. For example, if someone wants to lose weight, there are various methods available, but you should choose one that resonates with you and you believe in.

Now, let's move on to the next step.

Step number four is creating a survey gift. This strategy involves making posts and sharing content on social media, informing people that you plan to launch a product or a new training worth ₹10,000 in the next three months. To gather feedback and insights, you offer this product for free to a select few individuals who answer a survey.

In the survey, you should ask questions related to the problem you're addressing. Find out if they are facing the problem, their demographics, and what they are specifically looking for in a solution. For instance, if the problem is weight loss, ask about their previous attempts, what hasn't worked for them, and the major obstacles they face. This process helps you gather valuable data from your social media audience, even if the sample size is small. It provides validation and guides you in the right direction before creating your digital product. Creating a survey gift is the fourth step.

Moving on to step number five, you should conduct one-on-one conversations with the individuals who filled out the survey to identify patterns. As soon as someone completes the survey, send them an email expressing gratitude for their participation and offer them a free 15-minute call. This call allows them to share more about their problems, providing you with additional feedback before you finalize your product.

To schedule these calls, provide a calendar appointment link and connect with them individually via Zoom or any other platform. By engaging in these one-on-one conversations with at least 50 people over the course of three months, you'll gather valuable insights and patterns. Aim to collect around 100 data points. This information will serve as a solid foundation for creating your product. Conducting one-on-one conversations is the fifth step.

Now, let's move on to step number six, where you create your minimum viable product (MVP). Utilize the inputs and feedback you received from your customers during the survey and one-on-one conversations to shape your MVP. You may already have an idea beforehand, but this feedback will help you refine and enhance your product.

The significant advantage of having personal touchpoints and conversations with your audience is that every time you post valuable content on social media, they are more likely to follow and engage with you. By adding value through content and the one-on-one call, you strengthen the human-to-human connection. This brings us to step number seven.

After one to two months of implementing the previous steps and building a group or list of at least 100 to 300 people, it's time to invite them to an MVP webinar. Share the survey gift link across various platforms, including social media and even WhatsApp. Step number seven is to invite these individuals to an MVP webinar.

In step number eight, during the webinar, you have the opportunity to sell your minimum viable product. Although you initially offered it for free, you can invite a cold audience to participate in this webinar and conduct a test selling exercise. You can inform them that if you were to charge a certain amount for the product, what additional features or information would they expect? The webinar serves as a test to gauge the responsiveness of your audience to a potential paid offering.

And in this real sales webinar, if you see a good response to the topic, then you can start to hit the gas pedal, accelerate, and delve much deeper into it. You can consider running ads and implementing other strategies. 

However, if it doesn't work out, let's say you conduct this real sales webinar three or four times, but it doesn't generate a positive response, then go back to step one. Choose a new problem, target a new market, adopt a different method or process, create a new survey gift, and go through two or three rounds if necessary. 

The best part is that the second or third time, you'll be able to do it much faster than the first time. This is how you create a minimum viable product. Just imagine, once you have identified the sweet spot through the minimum viable product process, when you accelerate your efforts in terms of traffic, organic content, marketing, and ads, you will be able to scale easily. Many people fail to achieve results because they neglect this crucial step.

    • Dharanidharan Rajkumar

      I have to pick a problem which I should solve. I have to choose an ideal market. I don’t need to have a perfect plan in order to start. I have to pick just one method which I am looking to implement. I can take a survey to understand the market and conduct 1-to-1 with people who filled the survey. I have to create the mvp based on the feedback from people we connect. We can collect ideas from them.

      Learnings from Podcast-
      1) Start with a basic version of your product to test the market: Create a minimum viable product (MVP) and refine it based on feedback before fully launching.

      2) Adapt your offering based on customer feedback: Listen to your customers, make adjustments to meet their preferences, and improve your product or service accordingly.

      3) Build a community around your offerings: Engage and connect with your customers to foster long-term success, rather than solely focusing on selling products.

      4) Gather insights through surveys and one-on-one conversations: Conduct surveys and have personal conversations with your target audience to understand their problems, preferences, and obstacles, helping you create a successful product.

      5) Test market response with webinars: Invite your target audience to webinars to gauge their interest and willingness to pay for additional features or information, validating your MVP.

    • Meghna Bansal

      This was awesome!! 🤩🤩

      So inspired to start my MVP process. I am sure it would create that confidence needed.

      My key take aways –

      1) target one single problem
      2) target one target market ( just like u probably who are 2 yrs back )
      3) use one method or process to solve the problem which u r aligned with.
      4) use survey gift strategy. Collect ur 100 Questions and data. Validation happens.
      5) conduct 1 to 1 to chart out patterns. Send out an email for a chat to understand the problem better. Use calendly and zoom.
      6) now create you MVP based on the inputs of ur prospective customers. Plus these people will engage with u coz u added value to them.
      7) do a MVP group webinar. It’s a test sell. Use polls.
      8) Do test selling. Do the price discovery for the product and responsiveness
      9) create the product and give them for free. Collect feedback and testimonial, review on trustpilot.
      10) once collected, use these to do real selling.

      Binggooooo

      After MVP, ur confidence will be much higher.
      – If the product hits off, continue
      – If the product doesn’t, do 3-4 more tests webinars.
      – if even after 3-4 it doesn’t take off, go back to step one.

      PS: couldn’t create the gravator due to word press login issues. Next time pls 😄

      Top 10 Steps for Building a Community, Creating a Membership, and Developing a Minimum Viable Product:

      Identify the Problem: Select a specific problem that you aim to solve or address.

      Define Your Target Market: Choose a market segment that closely aligns with your own interests and preferences.

      Develop a Solution Process: Determine a systematic approach or process to tackle the identified problem effectively.

      Craft a Survey Gift: Create a valuable survey or questionnaire that helps you gather demographic information and understand your audience’s precise needs and desires.

      Conduct Personalized Interviews: Engage in one-on-one conversations with your target audience using tools like Calendly to schedule and conduct free calls or meetings.

      Build Your Minimum Viable Product (MVP): Create a prototype or simplified version of your product or service that addresses the core problem and provides value to potential customers.

      Organize a Webinar: Host an informative and engaging webinar to introduce your audience to your MVP, showcasing its benefits and gathering feedback.

      Test Your Product’s Market Potential: Offer your product for sale on a small scale to gauge its market viability. Determine whether your target audience is willing to pay for it.

      Gather Testimonials: Provide your product or service for free to a select group of users in exchange for their testimonials and feedback, which can help establish credibility and social proof.

      Conduct a Sales Webinar: Organize a sales-focused webinar, utilizing the gathered testimonials to promote your product or service effectively. Support your webinar with targeted advertisements. If the approach proves unsuccessful, reassess the previous steps and restart the process from the beginning.

      By following these steps, you can build a thriving community, establish a membership base, and create a minimum viable product that meets the needs of your target market.

      Informative podcast. The following is apt for me – “However, if it doesn’t work out, let’s say you conduct this real sales webinar three or four times, but it doesn’t generate a positive response, then go back to step one. Choose a new problem, target a new market, adopt a different method or process, create a new survey gift, and go through two or three rounds if necessary.” Thank you. Learnt it. Will do. Thanks.

      It is a community building, product building & validating formula, ultimately a roadmap to start your journey… Loved it!!!!!

    • Ramana Srinivasan

      In this podcast, Sidz discusses the concept of creating a minimum viable product (MVP) before fully launching a product or coaching business. He shares his personal journey as an example, starting with selling affiliate marketing courses as an affiliate and gradually transitioning to creating their own digital products. Sidz emphasizes the importance of feedback from customers and how it shaped their business direction. Sidz highlights the significance of building a community and ecosystem around the product or service and eventually transitioning to selling memberships instead of individual products. He provides a 10-step formula for creating an MVP, starting with identifying a problem, selecting a target market, choosing a method to solve the problem, and conducting surveys and one-on-one conversations to gather feedback. He concludes by stressing the iterative nature of the process and the importance of adapting based on market responsiveness.

      The first step in creating an MVP is to pick one problem to solve and deeply reflect on it. This problem can be related to various areas such as business, career, health, wealth, relationships, or creative arts. The second step is to select a specific target market that aligns with your own experiences and interests. Sidz shares their example of targeting individuals who were similar to them but a few years behind in their journey. The third step involves choosing a process or method to address the identified problem. Sidz chose affiliate marketing as a means to solve the money problem. Following these initial steps, he dives into the subsequent stages, including creating a survey gift, conducting one-on-one conversations to identify patterns, and developing the minimum viable product based on customer feedback. He also discusses the importance of engaging with the audience through valuable content and hosting an MVP webinar to test the market response. If the response is positive, it’s time to scale up; otherwise, the process starts again with a new problem, target market, and method.

      Overall, he emphasizes the iterative and feedback-driven nature of creating a minimum viable product. It highlights the importance of understanding the problem you want to solve, identifying your target market, gathering feedback through surveys and conversations, and refining your product based on the insights gained. By following this 10-step formula, Sidz suggests that we as entrepreneurs and coaches can simplify and expedite our journey to achieving desired results.

      Here are my top 6 action points that one can take:

      1. Identify a problem: Reflect on the world and pinpoint a specific problem that you are passionate about solving. It can be related to business, career, health, relationships, or any other area. This step is crucial as it forms the foundation of your product or coaching business.

      2. Define your target market: Select a target market that aligns with your experiences and interests. Focus on a specific group of people who can benefit from your solution. Consider targeting individuals who share similarities with you or are a few steps behind in their journey. Understanding your target market will help you tailor your product or coaching services effectively.

      3. Choose a method or process: Determine a method or process to address the identified problem. It should be something you are confident in and believe will be effective. For example, if your problem is related to weight loss, choose a weight loss method that resonates with you and that you have faith in.

      4. Conduct surveys and gather feedback: Create a survey gift and share it on social media platforms to collect feedback from your audience. Ask questions related to the problem you are addressing and gather insights about their challenges, needs, and expectations. This data will provide validation and guide you in developing your product or coaching services.

      5. Engage in one-on-one conversations: Reach out to individuals who filled out the survey and conduct one-on-one conversations with them. Schedule calls and listen to their problems, allowing them to share additional insights and feedback. Aim to have meaningful conversations with at least 50 people, gathering valuable patterns and data points to shape your offering.

      6. Create a minimum viable product (MVP): Utilize the feedback gathered from surveys and conversations to shape your MVP. This initial version of your product or coaching service should address the problem and meet the needs of your target market. Ensure that it provides value and aligns with the expectations of your potential customers. The MVP will serve as a starting point to test market responsiveness and gather further feedback for iteration and improvement.

      Thank you Sidz for the wonderful insights on how to go about creating a MVP. Deep Gratitude for having me in your community. MPTY.

      1. I will start doing 1-1 Call with my target audience. And after listening to their problem, will test my method and steps, without naming it and see how they respond. It will help to understand more about my method and what all should I include. Plus answer their questions (giving me more ideas for the product)

      2. Create my MVP Product based on the feedback and give it to them for FREE. And ask for testimonials and feedback.

      3. Plus really liked your idea of a value + test webinar. Will conduct webinars and provide value and at the end test my sales as well.

      The best part is that the second or third time, you’ll be able to do it much faster than the first time. This is how you create a minimum viable product. Just imagine, once you have identified the sweet spot through the minimum viable product process, when you accelerate your efforts in terms of traffic, organic content, marketing, and ads, you will be able to scale easily. Many people fail to achieve results because they neglect this crucial step.

      The crux of this podcast is about creating a minimum viable product (MVP) before fully launching a product or coaching business. The host shares a 10-step formula based on their own experience. They emphasize that starting with an MVP allows you to test market responsiveness and make necessary adjustments. The steps include:

      Pick one problem you want to solve.
      Pick one target market to serve.
      Pick one process or method to solve the problem.
      Create a survey gift to gather feedback and insights.
      Conduct one-on-one conversations with survey respondents to identify patterns.
      Create your MVP based on the feedback received.
      Build a group or list of 100-300 people and invite them to an MVP webinar.
      Sell your MVP during the webinar and test audience responsiveness.
      If the webinar generates a positive response, accelerate and go deeper into the topic. Otherwise, go back to step one and iterate.
      Scale your efforts once you find the sweet spot through the MVP process.

      This is yet another piece of golden nugget from you @sidz. 😁

      This podcast is a powerful reminder that our personal and professional growth is intricately tied to our ability to overcome challenges.

      Just like our magnificent bodies have a self-monitoring mechanism, we too can develop habits and behaviors to navigate obstacles with agility.

      By embracing the concept of a minimum viable product (MVP) and following the 10-step formula shared here, we can test and adapt our ideas before fully launching them, ensuring market responsiveness and achieving results faster than we could have imagined.

      This approach empowers us to make confident decisions, refine our offerings, and ultimately simplify the path to success. Let’s harness the power of our own self-monitoring mechanism and embark on a journey of growth and achievement.”

      By being attuned to our professional journey, practicing self-awareness, setting clear goals, and continuously adapting and learning, we can harness the power of our own self-monitoring mechanism to achieve remarkable results.

      More Power To You Sidz
      Cheers

    • Pradeep Hariharan

      My personal learning:
      1. Creating a MVP is a process, sometimes it may take some time
      2. Picking up a burning problem and a suitable market where we can emotionally connect is important.
      3. Our method to solve the problem must be need based
      4. Survey and free gift help us to hit the nail on the head
      5. We must practice cold selling.
      6. If it doesn’t work we must reflect and pick other problem until it works.
      7. That is the secret of freedom business model!
      Thank you Sidz!
