Hi fellow writers, I wanted to run this idea past you all and would appreciate your vote and/ or input on this.

Would you pay for online training that teaches how to turn your book into a course that people pay you for?

I think there's a real opportunity for us authors (in some categories) to add another revenue stream to our efforts, which might even add more credibility to our book(s). As e-learning developer by day and author by night... I'm wondering if there's an intersection here of my skills and passion to create something fellow authors could really benefit from.

The high level concept here is based upon teaching people the following knowledge:
  1. How to validate if there is actually a willing marketing for YOUR subject area as an online course
  2. How to set-up & handle all the techie stuff
  3. How to augment your content into digital "chunks", videos, etc. so YOUR course customers can digest it/ learn it/ benefit from it easily.

Please take a second to let me know if you think my idea is any good, or not.
