Are you wondering how to make money with coffee? Launching your own online course is one way to do it.
People around the world love drinking coffee. They love the taste of it, the smell and the different flavors that are available.
Some people love it so much that they end up making a business out of coffee or related to coffee. Opening up a coffee shop or café are common ways of making money with coffee. However, online courses have grown in popularity.
That’s right, you can make money with coffee by launching your own online course. Here’s a quick rundown on how it works. Afterwards you can take time to think about it before you decide whether or not to give this a try.
Pick A Topic Relevant To Coffee
The first thing you need to do is choose a topic for your course. For the record, this should be relevant to coffee. Examples of main topic ideas include:
. Making espressos
. Creating latte art
. Advice to baristas
. Guide to making coffee
And the list goes on and on. As long as it’s related to coffee, it can be the topic of your online course. Consider what areas of coffee you’re most passionate about, and then consider using that as your course topic.
Once you’ve chosen your main topic, you’ll want to choose sub-topics you’ll cover throughout your course. Let’s say you’re online coffee course is called: “How To Make Awesome Espressos”. Possible sub-topics could include:
. Choosing the right grinds
. Picking the right espresso machine
. Milk texturing tips
. Info about espresso shot extractions
. Tamping methods and techniques
Those are a handful of sub-topics you could cover. No matter what the main topic of your course is, take the time to choose sub-topics you think are the most important to go over.
Create Your Online Coffee Course
Now comes the fun part. It’s time to create your online course. You have many tools out there to help you, and this includes PowerPoint, Google Docs, Canva, and Microsoft Word to name a few. Also, as a general rule of thumb your course should contain some or all of the following:
. Text-based content
It’s completely up to you what type of content your course will have. However, the more appealing and engaging it is, the better the chances are people will be impressed by it. In turn, they’ll spread the word about your online coffee course.
Choose Platforms To Sell Your Course On
There’s no shortage of places to sell your online coffee course. A few of the top ones include Udemy, Teachable and Thinkific. Other good ones are Gumroad and Kajabi. All of those platforms have their own unique pros and cons associated with them, so it’s a good idea to do a bit more research into each one.
To sum up the above, platforms you might want to use include:
Tip: Choose A Platform That Handles Payments
The majority of platforms out there handle the payments for you. When someone pays for your online coffee course, then these platforms will or should take care of stuff like give you the money, add tax if applicable and things of that nature. Think of platforms as doubling as a payment processor, if that makes sense
And if you decide to sell your online coffee course via your own website, then make sure to use a reputable and good payment process. Ideally, you want to use (as previously mentioned) a processor that handles taxes for you. Nonetheless, it’s up to you how to go about things
Promote Your Online Coffee Course
Finally, it’s time to promote and market your course. A few ways to go about it include:
1. Coffee Influencers
Find influencers across social media. These influencers should be involved in the coffee niche, or be relevant. Influencers can promote your course to their following either via shouting out your product, creating an entire video about your course, or promoting it in another way.
2. YouTube Reels
Create a few reels about your course or videos related to coffee, and publish them. Do this a few times more week because sooner or later your reels could gain traction. All it takes is one reel to do exceptionally well to get some impressive results.
3. Facebook Shorts
Do the same thing with shorts as I mentioned with reels. Here’s a tip: you can create one video and then publish that video to both reels and shorts. This is like killing two birds with one stone. And remember, literally one video going viral can result in some serious sales.
4. Article Marketing
Create articles about coffee and/or about your course. Publish those articles to your own website, social media platforms, article publishing platforms and anywhere else you can think of. Make sure to link back to your online coffee course in each article or every one out of three articles.
5. Affiliate Marketing
Join platforms like JVZoo and Clickbank. Upload your product to them, and see if other people will promote them. Having an army of affiliate marketers can result in big sales and profits. Bear in mind you’ll need to payout a commission, but it may be well worth it because of the volume of sales you potentially will make.
I could go on and on about the different ways you can promote your online coffee course. The above are just a handful of them. Give them a try and who knows, you could end up raking in some decent profits.
There you have it, how to make an online coffee course and how to profit from it. If you love coffee or have a ton of knowledge about it, then consider putting that knowledge and passion for coffee to work and create a course.
Good luck if you do.
