I recently finished my course (see https://www.indiehackers.com/businesses/webdriverio-online-course) and am trying to figure out where to go next with it all.
I'm currently bringing in about $1500/mo in course sales, which is enough to allow me to work only 3 days a week (giving me two days to invest in what's next).
Now I need to figure out what to invest time in. Options are:
Focus on marketing the course to a broader audience (podcasts, meetups, guest posts, etc)
Grow my youtube/blog audience
Try and improve conversion rates through improved drip email sequences and a better landing page
Add additional modules to sell to existing course users
Use content from course to create a book version.
Create a free mini-course on a related subject to build a bigger audience/grow my mailing list
Start working on a SaaS app (either related or not to the course)
Do giveaways to gain attention
Whatever suggestions you have :)
This is causing some major analysis paralysis on my end, as I'm really hoping to increase the course revenue to at least 6k a month. This would help me take my next big step, which is leaving the part-time job and supplementing my income with contract work while I build a bigger product.
