1. They're busy
Chances are they’re over-committed, juggling multiple responsibilities with a calendar that is full-to-overflowing.
Unfortunately, your course is yet “another thing” on their to-do list. Something “nice to have” but the first thing to drop off the radar when urgent stuff comes up.
How can you help them get your course DONE despite their busyness?
2. They feel overwhelmed
They feel scattered. Their brains are frazzled. Finding the headspace to do your course feels too hard.
They may also be eCourse junkies who suffer from FOMO (fear of missing out), who bought your course on a whim. Because they feel overwhelmed, they’re now struggling to make time.
How can you help them cut through clutter and get IMPORTANT stuff done?
3. They get distracted
Pumped, they start Exercise 1. Then the distractions occur: check Facebook group > newsfeed > email > go to fridge > check phone … By the time they get back to your course, their motivation has fizzled.
Online courses are great … except for the online distractions!
How can you help them to FOCUS so they finish what they start?
4. They feel bored
Imagine each of your course participants, sitting at their computer, trying to muster up the motivation on their own.
Mundane tasks are often inevitable in online courses. It’s not all fun exercises. Some parts are foundational (eg research, or a series of questions).
How can you help them through the challenging parts?
