5 Incredibly Useful Podcasts (for online course entrepreneurs)

5 Incredibly Useful Podcasts (for online course entrepreneurs)

There’s so much information to learn (and learn quickly) when growing your online course business.

When I first started, I wish there was someone who would just give it to me straight rather than making it seem as if it were so easy that my 80-year old grandmother could do it.

While it’s great to have content you can sit and read to learn about creating and marketing an online course, you need an option to learn on the go.

Whether you’re at the gym, walking your dog, or in the car, you can learn all about the strategies that go into a profitable online course business with some incredibly useful podcasts for online course entrepreneurs.

After scouring Apple Podcasts and binging several podcasts over the past six-months, here are my top five picks to help you grow your online course business:

 1.       The Get Paid Podcast

“The podcast that’s dedicated to giving you an honest look at the reality of running an online business!”

Hands down this is my favorite podcast out there. This podcast is hosted by Claire Pelletreau and what I love about it is the raw honesty of the show. So many online marketers paint a rosy picture on social media, but we know that behind the scenes, things are much different.

 2.       The Course Creator’s MBA Podcast

Well, of course, my own podcast has to be on this list! This podcast was specifically designed to help online course creators grow their online course business.

Every week, I cover actionable topics that you can implement immediately and see results in your business.

Here are some of my top episodes that you may want to binge on:

5 Simple Steps for Creating your Online Course

How to Set Up your 5-Day Challenge for Success with Zach Spluckler

How to Profit With Email (even if you have a small list)

 3.       Social Media Marketing Podcast

This show is hosted by Social Media Examiner's Michael Stelzner and their tag line is they help your business navigate the social jungle with success stories and expert interviews from leading social media marketing pros.

This show is on my must listen to list. I like how Michael goes over how successful businesses are using social media effectively and learning about new strategies and tactics.

If you’re not subscribed to the Social Media Examiner’s emails, get on their list today!  It’s one of the few email lists that I haven’t unsubscribed to.

 4.       Everything is Teachable

This podcast is done by Teachable, which is an online course platform similar to Kajabi and Thinkific. It’s a fairly new podcast, where they cover behind-the-scenes stories with everyday creators who have transformed their skills and passions into online businesses.

 Each episode focuses on one creator’s personal story and their unique ways they’ve transformed their skills - like cake decorating, graphic design, or coding - into profitable online businesses.

If you want to get inspired and know that it’s possible to build your online course, this one is a must not miss!

5.       Ads that Convert

Ads that Convert podcast is hosted by Liz Melville who also has a Facebook Ads course. If you have questions about Facebook ads, Liz has answers!

I like this podcast because Liz breaks everything down related to Facebook ads into plain English that everyone can understand.

 Bonus Podcast:

Summit Host Hangout

This is a new and upcoming podcast that I’m absolutely loving. Full disclosure, I’m planning on hosting a virtual summit in the spring so this podcast is PERFECT for me.

This podcast is hosted by Krista Miller of Summit In A Box and she dives deep into what it takes to launch an online summit. Everything from discovering your summit idea to the strategies that go into hosting a profitable, value-packed virtual summit. The best part? You don't have to be an influencer to make it happen.

If you’re thinking of hosting a summit to grow your online course business anytime soon, add this one to your must listen to list!
