MBA1555 Q&A Wednesday: Should I keep my online course open, or do an “open & close” launch?

What’s the best way to sell an online course? Should you leave it out there, open for enrollment whenever? Or should you establish a limited enrollment period with a firm end date?

Does one help you sell more memberships? 

Does one help your overall business plan more?

It’s Q&A Wednesday, and we’ve got a listener asking these very questions. Fortunately, we’re course creators from way back (the “$100 MBA” isn’t just a podcast!). We’ve launched courses both ways. In fact, we launched the $100 MBA course both ways!

Our intrepid host Omar will explain.

Tune in, and get our best advice on how to launch your next course, particularly if it’s your first course. There are advantages to each method, but the right one for you will depend on your experience so far. Click Play!
