Dear Future Course Creator,
If you are here today you are probably in one of the following situations…
You are stressed with one-on-one clients (maybe coach, consultant, freelancer or a service-based business) are sick of trading dollars for hours and want more freedom in your business. Or…
You want to quit your job to follow your dream/create your own successful online business (and want to it the right way!). Maybe you’ve dreamt about your own freedom-based impactful business and want to make it reality and ready to put in the hard work. Or…
Maybe right now you have a job AND are also self-employed and want to go full time. Or…
Perhaps you are in the expert business (speaker/author/etc.) and looking to create a steady stream of income for the long-term. Or…
You have a blog, web show or podcast (or an online influencer) and have been asking yourself that question: “How the heck do I make money from this and have a big impact in a really cool way that is non-sleazy/all kinds of awesome?” Or…
You have tried creating and launching a course before but it didn’t go so well (or you want to do even better!) and you are looking to improve the process (and get it right!).
You’ll Want to Get in on This BOOMING Opportunity Headed to Climb to $325 BILLION By 2025!
And don’t take our word for it…
According to Forbes, the E-Learning Industry was worth $35.6 billion in 2011…
By 2013, it jumped to $56.2 billion…
And now, they are predicting that this industry will SKYROCKET to $325 billion by 2025!
Our Founder DSG has capitalized on this opportunity over the past decade, and he wants to show you how…
Now, although we prefer to make our students the rock stars when we explain the amazing online course opportunity, we’ll share our Founder’s story just for some context of where we’re coming from…
Cue the laughter for his Justin Bieber haircut and oversized silver tie…
It all started as a blog and web show called “The Rise to the Top.”
David He had idea what he was doing.
No audience or email list.
No business connections.
And he struggled for YEARS.
He was trying to figure out the “best” business model.
What ended up happening?
He was doing some 1-on-1 work coaching, and trying a variety of things to make money and have an impact.
He was stressed out all the time, glued to his computer.
His fiancé – now wife – Marcie giving him the glare-of-death while on a trip and he was on his laptop the entire time.
He discovered the world of online courses by complete accident on his podcast way back in 2009 when he interviewed Marie Forleo and Ryan Lee.
What he LOVED about both of them is despite being SO different from one another, they were making an INCREDIBLE living with online courses.
He noticed they both had tons of flexibility in their lives…
Marie was always traveling with her fiancé…
Ryan never missed a ballet practice or soccer game for any of his FOUR kids, and he loved it.
Plus, like every successful course creator, they LOVED helping people get results (that’s what it is all about!).
David did hundreds of interviews with successes course creators…
He spent thousands of hours on research…
He tapped into their secrets and methods…
He obsessed like a crazy person.
Then, he took the best of what he learned and implemented, tweaked, tested and put his own spin on it.
Sort of like the mad scientist of online courses.
Did he face challenges? Things like “imposter syndrome” (i.e. “who would want to learn from me”) or “this will never work.” You bet.
But, he just kept going.
Were there mistakes and setbacks? You bet!
Not all roses, unicorns and rainbows.
But guess what…
Success started to happen…
The first course he created and launched was Create Awesome Interviews, back in 2011.
He took his experience from doing over 500 interviews for his own web shows and podcast (this was the VERRRRRYYYYY early days of podcasting) and turned it into an online course.
The day it came out, he was NERVOUS.
What if nobody bought it?
What if people hate it?
What if XYZ?
That’s not an exaggeration.
Sam enrolled in the course!
Then Sheila, then Brett…and it kept going.
His confidence was soaring and he was completely hooked. It was amazing. People were paying for HIS knowledge.
And HE didn’t have to be there. It was all done online… automatically.
That first launch did $19,800 in sales. David was over the moon with one thing…confidence. This was working.
So, he kept improving, getting better, learning to take great care of those earliest customers (watching and helping them get results, which was incredibly rewarding).
Revenue grew and grew. Within 24 months it had reached a mind boggling $1,000,000.
From there, things continued to grow.
Here’s a quick summary of the milestones achieved after the first launch in 2011.
2018 to 2019 and beyond continuing to grow and evolve to over $9 million in revenue…
Plus, the freedom and flexibility he wanted in his life.
In 2013, David found my calling to teach people how to turn their expertise & experience into a successful online course and dream business.
Here’s a little “highlight reel” of a small fraction from some of our students…
Think this can ONLY work for them and there’s a “cap” to the amount of money people can make?
Need more proof?
According to Reuters, the Global E-Learning Market is expected to boom to a whopping $275.10 billion value by 2022 at a CAGR of 7.5%!
PLUS, the online course business model works in nearly EVERY niche (even weird ones you thought there was no money in)!
Let us give you some context…
The first version of Create Awesome Online Courses came out in 2013.
Fast forward to now…
We’ve had 5,000+ students in 100+ countries enroll.
These are folks with all kinds of different backgrounds and situations…
Here are a few profitable niches we’ve seen our students create courses around:
And we’re just naming a few!
So it turns out David is NOT a unicorn (darn it) 😉
These courses have also been created in all kinds of languages…
Every week, we hear about someone who has now quit their job and/or created their dream business, and achieved that freedom they desired.
Speaking of which…
Let us give you a list of reasons WHY we love online courses, and why DSG and his top students believe it’s a DREAM business…
In short: this is a DREAM business to be in…
But there’s a problem we see with people diving into the world of creating successful online courses, and that is:
THEY HAVE NO PLAN!
They may dabble in the business…
Check out a few YouTube videos on the subject…
Read a few articles…
But ultimately do NOT get started in building their online course, because they get overwhelmed with piecing different bits of information from random people.
The internet can be a true wormhole at times when it comes to learning new things, and this business is no different.
So let’s bring things down to the fundamentals and explain what you REALLY need, and what it REALLY takes to succeed in this business!
#1: A Strong Why
Why do you want to create a successful online course?
Is it financial freedom?
Quitting your job?
Helping others to succeed (that’s a no-brainer)?
Combo of all of the above.
Get clear on WHY you want to do this.
#2: A Solid, Profitable Course Idea
You’ll need an idea for a course that gets people results that either comes from your personal experience, meaning YOU got the result in the first place…
An idea can also come from a time where you TAUGHT others in another format (example one-on-one coaching) and how to turn that idea into a step-by-step course.
#3: Proven Demand
The worst thing you can possibly do is spend time, money, and resources building a beautiful website, and an online course that nobody wants to buy or is interested in.
You need to know how to test it to see if it will sell without wasting time.
#4: An Email List
Have an email list of the right folks who know, like & trust you (your peeps!).
Minimum would be 1,000 people to launch your course. And not just anyone…your perfect peeps.
#5: Create an Irresistible Offer
Know how to name, price & position your course to freakin’ irresistible (and how to create the perfect offer).
#6: Get Your Course Up & Running
Record and get your course up on your course website (knocking out all the tech, making sure you can accept payments, etc.) without tech stress or not knowing what tools you need.
#7: Nailing Your First Launch
We call this the “VIP launch.” Getting your course out there with a bang and your first customers in.
#8: Having a Post-Launch Strategy
Have a long-term strategy AFTER your first launch (most people forget this or don’t know it…the launch is JUST the beginning…the kick-off).
Knowing how to tweak & perfect, take amazing care of your customers & turn your course into a 24/7 sales machine.
So there you have it.
Those are the fundamentals to an online course business.

Now, you may be interested and excited about starting this business model…
However, you also may be thinking:
So let’s say you invest in Create Awesome Online Courses 2.0…
But then a moment late you completely regret your decision because you feel you’ll need to purchase and do a million other things…
Things like software, tech, setting up your site, and who knows what else…
This is totally understandable!
There is nothing worse when you buy something, then later realizing you need…all kinds of other expensive things and/or skills you don’t have.
The good news?
This is NOT the case with online courses.
The overhead to create a successful online course is SO much lower than any other product.
There is nothing to ship.
There is no inventory.
You are turning your brain/experience/expertise into a course that will sell for years and years and years.
Inside of CAOC, we share our top recommended tools in the Tech Guide of Awesome (plus videos) and walk you through them in Module #3.
You can use what we recommend or something else if you prefer BUT the key here is the costs aren’t crazy.
Thousands of dollars?
We ran some math of an example setup…including everything (except your computer LOL) and you can get all-the-techy-and-recording stuff for…
Less than $500!
Yup, less than $500.
With the massive upside of building your dream business.
You don’t need to hire a graphic designer.
Everything that you need is included in that minor expense. Things like…
And even a quick-and-easy-way to make checklists, cheatsheets, guides, etc.
All included from our amazing graphic designer Natalie (and videos to show you how to quickly customize them).
You ALSO won’t need a web developer or fancy tech person.
We will show you exactly what to do to set up your website.
Of course, you can outsource it if you want, but you certainly don’t need to.
You also won’t need to hire SPECIALIST to help with things like:
This will ALL be included in the program.
Money saved = A TON.
Hopefully that clears things up with any “tech” concerns.
Now, we’d like to get into who this is right for, and who it’s not right for…
On the other hand…

Ready to be one of our next success stories?
I’m a ‘blank’ is CAOC 2.0 for me?
We went through all the “key” people this program is for and if….
Then this program is absolutely for you. 🙂
How much will I have to spend beyond this to get my course up and running?
Totally understandable question. And if you think of MOST business out there where you are selling a product…they are quite expensive to get off the ground. You have to buy products, maybe office space, etc. Next thing you know you’ve spent tens of thousands or even more. The good news? This isn’t like that 🙂
Inside of Create Awesome Online Courses you see our recommended tech tools and exact setup. The training shows you different setups depending on your budget. You could started for less than $500 in technology (or get fancier…the training shows you both options). A far cry from thousands or tens of thousands! The goal is for you to get it back in spades when you launch AND your course will be an asset you can sell for years and years at a very nominal cost (thank you low overhead!)
Who is Create Awesome Online Courses 2.0 NOT for?
This program is not for people who….
How long do I get access for?
You can access the training as often as you want forever and ever and ever….. and ever.
What if I have a question?
We pride ourselves on having epic customer service. Simply send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and a member of The Rise To The Top Team will take awesome care of you. 🙂
Do I get everything at once or do I have to wait?
Yes, you get access to everything right away. You can attack the material at any pace you want (I recommend staying in order? ) Many people think it’s nuts to have an affordable payment plan ($97/month for 12 months) and giving full access but we know how life-changing this material can be when you learn and implement it.
How long does it take to go through the course?
You can go through the content any way you want. There is between 25 and 30 hours of content that you can tackle all at once, or on a weekly basis.
How long until I see results?
Its hard to say EXACTLY how long it takes you to get your course up and running, because the truth is: everyone is different.
It all depends on how much time you have to commit to knocking out the steps. Some people have 10 hours a day and some have 10 hours a week, while others have 10 hours a month.
On average, you can have your course launched in 90 days. It’s taken some people take less time and some people take much more time. It’s all up to you and how much time you have to do the work. 🙂
What’s the guarantee again?
Create Awesome Online Courses comes with a 30-day 100% money back guarantee. If within 30 days, if you are unhappy for whatever reason just email our customer support team and you will receive a full refund. The Rise To The Top stands behind Create Awesome Online Courses 100%.
Is there a payment plan?
YES! By popular demand, you can get started for just $97 due today (and then just 11 more payments of $97).
And yes you get the whole freakin’ thing.
You can Netflix binge your little heart out and go at whatever pace you like. It can be frustrating to purchase a course and have it slowly dripped to you over time. This way you can go at YOUR pace.
Here is the thing, you all are rock stars and wouldn’t screw anyone over, so you get the entire course right away no matter what payment option you choose. A bunch of business folks think this is freaking crazy, but we trust you and know you will follow through on your commitment of 12 payments.
How long is enrollment open for?
Enrollment in Create Awesome Online Courses closes soon! After that, the next time it is offered the plan is to raise the price significantly to reflect the big-time value. Now is the time to lock in the lowest price CAOC will be offered for.
