Once you have found your niche for your course, you may want to expand on the idea. See if your course can be broken into multiple courses. This can be beneficial for someone who might only be looking for an advanced level course or a certain type of crocheting technique. You can then bundle courses together for discounts for students who purchase multiple courses. Teachable makes bundling courses very easy so you don’t have to worry about tracking it yourself.
