How do I find speaking offers for online course creation and content development skills?

Asked 1 week ago, Edited 1 week ago by in Business Planning/Development

I am an online course developer and I teach content development skills online. I now want to offer on-the-job training to learners in different countries which will give me opportunities to see new places. To make a beginning, I'm open to any offer if only my costs are met.

Hi Partha,

I'm impressed with what you do (watched the video, visited your site) but a bit perplexed by your question. If you already teach online to 22,000+ students in 156 countries, what is preventing you from expanding this network? Are you saying you now wish to teach in-person classes? If so, I'd suggest you reach out to your existing network for introductions, and ascertain their interest in participating as well. With 22,000+ clients you have a wealth of resources at your fingertips.

If I've misinterpreted your inquiry, please clarify.

Partha Bhattacharya  Hi Amara, Appreciate your nice words, thanks for taking the time to look at my details. My students are mostly on Udemy and yes I'm approaching them too. Unfortunately, there's restriction on sending promo emails on Udemy and I don't have their personal emails. Also, it appears they are mostly young learners in their 20s to early 40s and may not be interested in organizing in-person group learnings. Though my effort is on, I'm pinning my hopes on institutions and organizations and corporate sectors that regularly organize workshops and speaking events. Any help is warmly welcome. - Partha

Amara Rose  Ah. Well, a takeaway: always get client contact information! Does Udemy allow a link where you can offer a free download in exchange for an email address? Since you want to target organizations and the corporate sector, how about doing it the "old fashioned" way: pitching specific companies. Craft a letter that describes how what you offer addresses their pain points, source a decision maker, and snail mail/email the letter. Follow up with a phone call. Befriend the gatekeeper(s). fyi, This is how I landed one of my largest accounts when I launched my marketing communications business. I had a lead at a major corporation, and left phone messages for months. Finally one of the admins said, "We leave at 5 o'clock, but the managers don't. Try calling at 5:20 and they will pick up their own phones." I took her advice, and the woman who answered (NOT the one I originally called) had a crisis need and asked me to come in the next day! That meeting resulted in 3+ years of steady work.

Great input from Amara.... the old-fashioned way still works, and is probably more relevant for face to face work vs. online.

Make a list of organizations and associations in the cities and countries you want to go to, and simply pitch.
