Why Your First Video Course Will Suck!

So if you’re looking to set out and make a video course and you’re looking to sell that to the end user/future customers, chances are — it’s more than likely going to suck.

So be prepared for it to not be as good as you expect. Your expectations should be dumbed down a little bit.

Part of the reason that that’s going to happen is that you’re just new in in the game, in the business, in the software.

Remember, it’s not a big deal.

When I first started doing video courses/training material, eventually it all started to go uphill with time. It’s because I’ve gotten better, the technology’s and my understanding of the way the process works gotten better.

So it’s not to say that the material that’s presented is bad, it’s just that you’re learning so many things in developing your course and your materials. Such as you’re learning how to deal with the video camera, with the cuts, with packaging this product and many more.

Here’s kind of my first course.

It’s ‘Blog Your Way to 100k’.

When I was in high school, I took one of my blogs all the way up to a hundred thousand dollars of income and then I sold that for a large chunk of change.

It allowed me to have other money to do investments.

Now I got more into investing, trading stocks and I just continued to teach as well.

So you could see the course we’re packaging like DVD’s. The way I shipped it was just with a binder and then the DVD’s itself.

So there was a lot of things that had to be manufactured to be able to make it work.

  • How do I get the music?
  • How do I film?
  • How do I do the edits?
  • How do I package it?
  • How do I sell it?
  • How do I plan it out?

So there was a lot of things in there.

Now if you look at the course,

Here’s one of the videos just to show you around. I had to create these different slides.

How do I get the introduction?

Write these things out.

Planning and discussing it took time to think it through. It’s not as easy as you think at the beginning.

Here is another way.

In the past, I was teaching in this way on screen.

How do I do the screen recordings? Back then screen recordings were a bit more difficult.

Nowadays, everything’s tied into the camera and then into the computer.

Now, you could just easily flip and you can see that I could just start writing.

I don’t have to pause and cut. Sometimes, I do because maybe something’s not set up properly or I misspoke something.

I just got to cut a word or two out but it’s very simple edits. Back when I was doing videos in the past, I had to actually transfer the files. Just the transferring of the video content into the computer i had to do that then

I had to add in all these different fade outs, I had to add slides at the beginning. So all of that it basically had to be constructed in a way that is not as efficient as today.

My point is that at the beginning, when you’re first getting started, there’s just so many things to figure out.

There’s a lot going on.

Not only do you have to think about the customer, the course, the content, the material but you also have to figure out the equipment you have to figure out how it all works together, how it functions, how to speed up the process.

You’re just juggling out of 200 things that you’re trying to do. You might hit like 150 of them and 25 are okay, 50 are pretty good 75 of those are great.

All of it has a different range and it’s not as good as you hope even at the end.

Now personally, me being a critic of myself, there are things that you could always improve even in the new stuff that I’m producing.

Now there’s always you could always keep making it better.

You could always include different audios and music, you could always go deeper into the content adding extra modules.

But as far as making a complete package, was that course still good? Still great with filled with great knowledge?

I think so.

I think even my first course still had a good amount of content knowledge and that’s what I wanted from it.

But I think on the technology side, I could have definitely improved much more and just streamlined it a little bit better.

You learn these things over time. As technology improves, you’ll learn and go with it more. As long as you keep continuing to evolve.

You’ll see different ways that you can speed things up.

Remember, your first course may not be as amazing as you think. So work it from a small perspective. Don’t try and create a massive course

Make a small course and then learn from it. Make another small course and by the second or third course, you’ll see the little nuances of where you can improve.

That’ll really speed things up for you. It’ll make things more efficient and you’ll get better at it as well

Now you’ll already understand how to work the camera, how to do the filming, the production process. You can see where you speed things up based on the way that you film and the way that you create things.

It’s not to put a negative spin on you saying, your first course is really going to be bad. It’s just it may not be as good as you hope or you might have spent way longer than you should have on it.

For example, for me I probably spent 6 months on that course when nowadays I could probably recreate that same course within three weeks. So it’s just a whole different different ballgame these days.

I’ve gotten better, technology’s gotten better, my process has gotten better and just I’ve learned many things over time

All of those things kind of just add up and allow you to be more streamlined, more efficient and just overall — better. I hope that you find that helpful encouraging and insightful to pushing you forward into creating your first course.

Don’t wait too long. Get one done, get a small one done and later on, what you could do is package it up as a bonus item for people to purchase.

Just stacking additional value moving forward
