In this article, I’ll be outlining the different types of online courses that you can create and help you figure out which course is perfect for you.

If you don’t like reading articles, check out this post in a handy video below. 

Starter Course

The first type of course we have is the Starter Course and the Starter Course really could be a freebie designed to be something that you’re giving people as a teaser of what’s available if they buy the next level of course that you’re going to produce.

I would say content wise your starter course should aim to be around 30 to 45 minutes, maybe an hour tops really and when I’m talking about these types of course, I put them in different levels of the content time, but it doesn’t have to be like that, that’s just one way to view them. So, Starter Course, probably less than an hour and it’s mostly designed to be a teaser by you of what’s to come.

Mini Course

The next level up would be what I would call a Mini Course and that’s probably 1 to 2 hours that could accomplished in just a day’s filming. In reality, we’ve seen some people that even though I say it should be 1 to 2 hours, it could be around 3 or 4 hours. But I’d still count that as a Mini Course, a Mini Course, you’re probably looking at around six modules with four lessons in each module, so 24 maximum really.

In terms of pricing your Mini Courses, probably somewhere around £90-200 is generally a good price. An example I’ve seen was one guy who did 12 videos and they were about 15 minutes each. He sold his for £1000 for those 12 and that was a 12-week course.

This would still be within the Mini Course category because of the amount of content that’s available in the course.

Workshop Course

The Workshop is the next type of course that you could create. A Workshop would be where you’d go in great depth and detail about one specific subject. You can approach this in different ways whether you film it or live stream it. These would only be about an hour and would fall nicely between the Starter and Mini Course that you might develop.

This would still be within the Mini Course category because of the amount of content that’s available in the course.

Signature Course

The last type of course you could create is what Amy Porterfield describes as the Signature Course, plenty of people describe these things as Signature Courses now.

A Signature Course is something that goes into great detail and it involves taking someone for a complete transformation in whatever subject matter that you’re in. For example, we teach people how to make better videos, so a Signature Course would go from people that don’t really know how to make video through to people that can then make better videos with their mobile phone, mirror lists or digital SLR and teach them how to edit and everything else.

Content wise, this course could be anywhere between 2 to10 plus hours. So, it would be a very in-depth and long course that  would likely fall somewhere between 8-12 weeks.
