How customers decide
to buy an online course. The reason Sunny was so successful was
because she didnt pitch her course immediately. She first created
YouTube videos for people in the Awareness stage.
They were aware of the fact that they needed to be utilizing video marketing, and Sunny was their source of information on this.
As they moved into the Consideration stage, where they considered different ways to incorporate video into their marketing, she invited them to the bootcamp. By showcasing her expertise, her viewers became convinced that Sunnys method was the solution they were looking for.
They were now in the
Decision stage so when Sunny presented her online course as the
solution they had already decided they were going to get it.
Now Sunny primarily used video, but you can use other content types blogs, podcasts, email, and so on. For example, when people are in the Awareness stage, you could give them a free checklist in exchange for their email. Then, via email, you could invite them to a webinar. Finally, on the webinar, you could pitch your course and send them to your sales page.
