Create a game plan

As Benjamin Franklin once said, “If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail.”

Granted, he probably wasn’t talking about creating video courses. But even so, the idea stands – planning can be the difference between an excellent course and an average one.

Everyone here today is committed to making excellent courses, and to do this we really must start at the planning stage.

So first, let’s talk about the different levels of planning required to write a great video course.

First, you need to create a game plan. This is a high-level plan that will help guide your thoughts as you get into the nuts and bolts of the course. It will keep you focused on what you’re trying to achieve. If you’re working with a team then your game plan will also help build a shared purpose.

And the good news is, it’s really simple.

It’s just about asking yourself some specific questions.

In this lesson, I’ll go through 10 questions to ask yourself to help build your game plan. There’s also a downloadable workbook to fill in.
