Learning is just for kids and long-term students, right? Wrong…! More and more smart and success-oriented people are no longer satisfied with traditional education and opt for lifelong learning instead. Their interest in learning is not only focused on ongoing professional development, but also on personal development – the range of demand for knowledge and information is therefore broader than ever before!

This market development offers smart entrepreneurs the opportunity to share their knowledge and earn good money from it
An “edupreneur”, the new term for an educational entrepreneur, is someone who offers educational products. The role of today’s edupreneurs is to educate society and help people to develop certain new skills or acquire certain knowledge. By doing this, edupreneurs have the potential to positively influence people’s lives while supporting them to fulfill their dreams and achieve their goals.
These are the reasons why the online course market is growing rapidly: Here’s your chance!
In today’s digital world, groundbreaking factors can come into play in the blink of an eye and shatter the entire business landscape. For instance, graphic design was once a high tech profession. If a company wanted an original graphic, it generally had to hire an expert. However, this is no longer the norm. People with only basic computer skills can use a tool such as Canva to do the work for free and in a very short amount of time with professional templates.
Nevertheless, not every tool and not every innovation in an area drops down from heaven. Sometimes insiders and experts keep their valuable knowledge secret. In online courses, you have the opportunity to acquire specific knowledge about specific fields, e.g. professional hacks about how to use video cameras or the fine details of Google Adwords.
Many dramatic and important aspects of private life are excluded in the traditional education system.
You don’t learn how to manage your finances at school.
You don’t learn how to build your career or how to deal with office politics at university.
You also don’t learn how to find your life partner and how to overcome relationship crises and conflicts.
Every person has to work through these things themselves – and it’s not always a walk in the park. In online courses, you can now learn how to invest your fortune, how to get your dream job, and how to catch your dream partner.
People search for information on the internet daily and are also increasingly prepared to pay for it.
So, this is your chance to claim a part of this rapidly growing future market by finding your niche and sharing your insider knowledge. You can achieve this by constantly learning, staying open to new things, and always continuing your education in the areas of your expertise or passion.
This is how to seize this opportunity and find your niche:
We have systematized different areas of knowledge for you and use relevant examples to show you how someone who has never thought of themselves as an insider can build a course out of their unique knowledge or experience that can change other people’s lives.
You surely have valuable insider knowledge in your subject area that only your own customers benefit from at the moment. But imagine if you expanded your reach infinitely? Sounds like magic? It is, in fact, the power of scaling.
If you like doing something and you find it easy, your skills come naturally to you. However, there are people who want to learn exactly these skills but find them difficult. Share your knowledge with these people and both sides will reap the benefits!
Share them with other people that find themselves in a similar situation and who can’t see a way out. They can benefit from exactly your experience!
