How to Make Money Selling Courses on Your Blog

Here's my own journey – I was super stoked about digital marketing. Let me tell ya, it's crucial to pick a niche that truly revs your engine, something you know inside out. Your excitement will shine through in your course content and grab your audience by the collar.

Now, assuming you're already rocking a blog and got yourself a niche, it's time to level up. You can whip up an online course and drop it right on your blog. Who wouldn't wanna milk every cash cow as a blogger, right?

I mean, let's be real, we can't all be counting on Adsense and affiliate scraps forever. Selling courses through your blog can be the golden goose, especially when you can serve 'em up to your loyal readers and followers without breaking a sweat.

But hang on, if you're scratching your head about how to set up shop and funnel that moolah straight into your bank account, no worries – I got your back. Follow me on this journey!

1. Know Your Audience

Understanding your peeps is key. Get into their heads, figure out their pains, and what they'd fork out cash for.

I started by sketching out buyer personas, which helped me whip up course content that's tailor-made for their cravings and quirks.

2. Blueprint Your Course

Before you go gung-ho on content creation, you need a game plan. Sketch out your course outline, and sort out the structure, modules, and lessons.

Chop the info into bite-sized chunks, making sure each lesson builds on the last one.

3. Craft Top-Notch Stuff

Now that you've got a roadmap, let's create some killer course materials. You'll want videos, written stuff, quizzes, and assignments – the whole shebang.

And hey, don't be stingy, invest in some sweet gear like a pro microphone and camera. You want your stuff to look and sound pro.

4. Blog-ify Your Sales

To peddle your courses on your blog, you'll need some e-commerce muscle.

There are options – you can roll with WordPress and plug-ins like LearnDash or MemberPress, or go all-in with dedicated course platforms like Teachable or Thinkific. Me? I went the WordPress- LearnDash route 'cause it's flexible.

5. Blast Off and Price It Right

Set a launch date and hype it up, baby! Offer some sweet discounts or bonuses for early birds, and watch those sales take off.

Pricing can be a tricky beast, but scope out your niche, see what others are charging, and work from there. Be ready to play around with your pricing as you go.

6. Market Your Course

Creating the course is just half the battle. Now it's time to get the word out.

My digital marketing chops came in handy here. I used content marketing, email blasts, and social media to drum up interest and reel in potential students.

If you're not a digital marketing whiz, no sweat – you can always rope in a freelancer or hit up free online resources. DIY style, baby!

And don't forget the SEO magic – it's like a magnet for organic traffic, and it pumped up my course's visibility big time.

Selling More Courses After Launching 

Typically, creating and selling online courses should stop after you've made your profits from sales. It's more than selling and early profit. Selling courses requires more than that. So, after the sales, take the following stages seriously.

8. Engage with Your Students

Once students enroll, engagement is key to their success and your course's reputation. Create a community or forum where students can interact, ask questions, and share experiences. 

You should provide prompt support and updates to keep them engaged and satisfied.

9. Gather Feedback and Iterate

After your course has been running for a while, seek feedback from your students. Use their insights to improve your course continually. Happy students are more likely to recommend your course to others.

10. Expand and Diversify

As your blog and course gain traction, consider expanding your offerings. Don't you want more money?

Create advanced courses, add supplementary materials, or explore different niches. Diversifying can increase your income streams.


Creating and selling courses as a blogger is not just about making a quick buck; it's about cultivating a thriving community of eager learners who value your expertise. With a rock-solid strategy in place, you've turned your blog into a powerhouse, offering valuable content that resonates with your audience. 

As you navigate the ever-evolving landscape of online education, remember that this journey doesn't stop at the finish line. It's a continuous adventure of engagement, improvement, and expansion. So, here's to your ongoing success as you venture into new horizons, armed with knowledge, passion, and the determination to make your mark in the world of online courses.
