We have this conversation all the time. It usually goes like this…
I have a question… You’ve seen the inside of so many launches – and you actually know the sales numbers – so can you tell me… when’s the best time to launch? I mean, I’m not asking you to break any confidences, but can you just let me know what works for everyone else?
And there is a simple answer… In many cases the answer is too simple.

Let’s talk about awkward moments.
Remember back in high school, when you had to get a physical in order to be able to play sports? And at the doctor’s office, it was just no fun at all because you had to pee in a cup? Awkward. Very awkward.
But there was a method to the madness. The school wanted to make sure that the kids were cleared to play sports. And the doctor helped make sure that happened.
Today, we’re going to ask you to do the same thing, just for your online course. No, not pee in a cup – but go through a checkup and see where you’re at. You see, it’s so easy to forget about time, and before you know it, the year has slipped by and you haven’t done the things that you thought that you’d do. So it’s time for a check-up.

You know that one friend who can never find anything? You’re ready to walk out the door and they are scurrying to find their car keys, their sunglasses, chap-stick…they may even have to make sure they turned their shower off. Just completely disorganized, aka scatter-brained. They have no system. And the misplaced car keys, sunglasses and chap-stick are just a couple symptoms of their disorganization.
The internet has changed everything. It’s changed the way we do business. It’s changed the way we connect with people. And it’s also changed the way we find people with similar interests. On some levels this may seem very basic, but the internet is only 27 years old, imagine what it will be like in 30 more years. The reach that the internet has, and will have, will be much more advanced.
Think about it, the internet allows people to interact with each other and meet people that may have never met face-to-face. The internet has, in Wellman’s terms, caused “glocalization”. At one point we were all restricted to our social group that was only local to us: friends, family, co-workers, people that were a short distance away. The internet has allowed people and businesses alike to connect on a global level.
Different numbers tell different stories.
Knowing your measurements, knowing your metrics, knowing your key performance indicators – call it what you will – but if you know your numbers – you can turn failures into wins.
Numbers may not be as shiny as new products, but they DO matter.
If you are running an information product-based business and selling online courses and you want to continue to sell and continue to grow, you need to know your numbers. Unless you’re operating off of your memory and let’s face it, everybody’s memory sucks, especially before your first cup of coffee. If you’re not checking your numbers periodically, you don’t know whether you are growing and you don’t know how things are moving in your business.
Let’s discuss stalking your students and why it’s crucial for their learning experience and building your business. Don’t get Summit Evergreen‘s idea of stalking confused with the kind of stalking like in Single White Female or One Hour Photo. We aren’t talking stalking in a creepy way. It’s not like showing up at their house or peeking in their windows. You won’t be posting weird comments on their Facebook page or re-tweeting all their stuff on Twitter.
We’re talking about tracking them and their course participation to help them reach their goals.
They bought your course, they want to learn what it is that you are teaching them. No matter what you are teaching them, “How to Be Healthier,” or “How to Learn Excel,” whatever it is – you want to make sure that they are learning it.
