What if I told you that you could overcome any tech challenges and create a beautiful, professional online course you’ve been dreaming about – not in months, but in just a few days?
While you may think such a promise sounds like a miracle, it’s really just the outcome of using the right tools and eliminating the unneeded complexity to produce a product that’s a true representation of the quality of your brand.
For years, I’ve been telling people about the crazy and unfair advantage that exists right now…
On the one hand you have the entrepreneurs that are putting their heart and soul into building a business working around the clock year after year… constantly hustling to win over more clients resulting in 10 mini bosses they have to report to… only to earn enough to keep the business afloat.
But then on the other hand, there are those who seem to have found a better way.
I’m talking about people who’ve created a business that works for them instead of the other way around.
They’re people who have the profit margins that allow them to hire A-players, to advertise wherever they want, and only work with who they want, where they want, as much or as little as they want.
These people have found a way to break free from the trading time for money trap by packaging what they already know into a scalable business asset that can be sold over and over again long after its created.
And this opportunity is available to every one of us but in order to make it a reality, overcoming technology is a necessary evil.
If you really want to achieve the dream about the lifestyle, freedom and money a leverageable online course can create, you’ll need to shift to using technology as a leverage and competitive advantage rather than allowing it to be something that holds you back.
But here’s the problem…
All too often aspiring course creators get stuck in the land of indecision – spending countless hours researching which membership platform, payment processor or email marketing system to use – and all of a sudden months or even years go by and they’re no farther ahead than when they started.
Trust me, I completely understand how overwhelming the decision can be because there are sooooo many options and the wrong choice can significantly set you back in time money and energy.
Not to mention the fact that once you do finally make a decision, you now have to figure out how to make everything work together.
So in attempt to help guide you along the way, here’s three important things you need to know…
Your memberhship site is the central hub of your course and brings everything to life. Therefore it should be built on a reliable platform that supports your business needs now and in the future.
All too often I see entrepreneurs agonize over which systems to use, and end up opting for what they think is the “easier” option. Only to find out that “easy”really isn’t that easy when the systems don’t support your needs.
True, there might be a little less setup in the beginning but when it comes to building a long-term business asset you need to think sustainability.
You need to build your course on a platform that you own – meaning your WordPress website.
Here’s 5 reasons why…
When you don’t own the platform your course is built on you have no control over that system. Things can change at any time like monthly costs, transactions fees, integrations, design and layouts among others.When it comes to a valuable business asset, I like to manintain as much control as possible and you probably feel the same way.
With 3rd party platforms what you see is pretty much what you get and you’re very limited with changes that can be made.
When you create your course on WordPress using a theme with a drag-and-drop page builder, it’s extremely simple and you get to design your course to look exactly how you want and you don’t have to use cookie cutter templates.
As your business grows and new technology is released there is a high probability that your needs will change in the near future. When your course is built on WordPress you have extreme flexibility to integrate with whatever you need instead.
Third party platforms either charge high monthly fees or they charge a transaction fee. That means that every time you make a sale you have to pay a certain percentage to them on top of the 3% credit card fees.
That starts to really add up.
Often times, after customers are finished with your course they want to keep learning from you. Adding a membershio option is a great way to add a recurring revenue stream to your business and increase the customer lifetime value. When you create your course on WordPress you have the flexibility to add on to your site anyway you choose.
LOVE IT OR HATE IT
As the competition in the online course market continues to increase, it’s becoming more important than ever to present your product in a way that establishes a high perceived value and provides an excellent user experience.
Before you may have been able to get away with uploading a few videos to a membership site and calling it a course but today, customers expect more.
Do not underestimate the power of design as it will play a vital role in your success.
SPEED OF IMPLEMENTATION IS
If there’s one thing for certain, speed to market is vital to the success of a business.
If you’re not launching, you can guarantee that one of your competitors are, and the longer you take to figure this all out the longer you’re delaying seeing an ROI.
With that said, selling a releasing a subpar course can be detrimental to your reputation.
So which is it… quality or speed?
The answer is both. But in order to achieve one without sacrificing the other you need to find a way to get more done in less time.
And unless you’ve somehow managed to get ahold of Doc’s time machine from Back to the Future, I’ve only found one way to compress months into days…
By learning from people who already know what you want to know.
See, there’s simply nothing that will move you forward faster in life than having the right coach to guide you along the way…
To prevent us from stumbling over the things we don’t know that we don’t know…
And having that person to call on to help when we screw up.
That’s why Olympic athletes hire the best trainers and why CEO’s of multi-million dollar businesses hire the top coaches.
Successful people invest in learning from the best.
They don’t waste time trying to figure it all out themselves because they realize this is just stalling their progress.
Instead, they put the time, money and energy it takes to achieve what they’ve set out to accomplish.
And this is where I can help…
SETTING YOURSELF UP FOR
After conducting some extensive market research, it was loud and clear that entrepreneurs were pleading for an all-inclusive solution for creating an online course.
And while there are other courses out there that teach you how to create a course the biggest complaint I’ve heard over and over was that the program just skimmed over the actual tech setup (which obviously is a very important piece).
So even after completing the course, they were still left in a tech nightmare.
At first I was so confused why all these courses on how to create a course just seemed to bypass the very thing that makes the course actually come together…
But after a little more digging, it made a lot more sense.
See, technology and software change constantly. New features are released, layout and designs change regularly, and all of a sudden that step-by-step video lesson that was made showing how to do something is completely outdated.
So what does that mean for the course creator?
Well, it means they have to recreate the content again and again.
So it’s no wonder the tech is barely covered in these programs. It’s just not worth their time.
Luckily for me, (and you) I have to recreate this training regardless because my agency designs courses day in and day out. Therefore, in order to onboard and train new employees, my tutorials can never be out of date.
Because of this, I’m able to go where others won’t…
See, my agency specializes in creating, designing, developing and launching online courses and over the years I’ve worked with some amazing entrepreneurs to help scale their business by turning what they know into a highly profitable online course.
Since this is the core focus of my entire business I’ve tried basically every membership platform and tool available just to make sure we’re staying on top of our game.
And after a ton of trial and error I’ve found what I consider to be my technology elixir because the ease of use and quality of the finished project is almost magical.
Here are just a few examples of some recent work…
And today I want to invite you to join me in an implementation program the first of it’s kind –
I’ll hand you everything you need to create a beautiful, professional online course on a platform that will support you now and in the future.

Here’s a summary of everything we’ll cover in this program…
04/ Creating Additional Course Pages
HOW the COURSE WORKS
As soon as you join Course Creation Blitz you’ll receive access to all 4 modules. The course videos, worksheets, downloads and templates are all provided in a private members area.
Each module contains several video lessons, worksheets and assignments. Every video module also contains a checklist with the exact action steps you need to take. Simply click on the button and mark off what you’ve completed so you always know exactly what you need to do next.
This type of clarity is power!
You can complete the program at your own pace but if you want to power through it and you have the time to invest, I would recommend completing one module per day.
That means you would have your entire course up and running in 4 days!
The entire site displays perfectly on any screen size so you can participate from your desktop, tablet, or phone.
I’M HERE to SUPPORT YOU ALONG the ENTIRE JOURNEY
Sometimes concepts need to be talked through… or are better transferred through live communication. That’s why I’m including 4 live office hours so you never feel stuck or alone throughout this process.
Each live office hour will be focused around a specific module. The office hours are held over a virtual video Zoom meeting on Thursday at 2pm CST.
If you can’t make it to the live office hours, no problem! Simply submit your questions and links to anything you want me to review prior to the call and I’ll be sure to answer them.
Each call will be recorded and hosted in the members area.
Plus, you’ll receive access to the private Facebook community where, you’ll not only receive support from me, but also from a community of entrepreneurs who are all working towards the same goal.
With a few clicks of a of a mouse you’ll be able to unlock all the guidance you could ever want.
4 LIVE OFFICE HOURS!
COMPLETE PROJECT PLAN
Ever wish there was someone to tell you EXACTLY what to do step-by-step? The master checklist outlines every single step of the process in a downloadable pdf, a digital checklist, as well as a check list next to each module!
ONE CLICK UPLOAD PAGE TEMPLATES
In order to provide a superior user experience I truly believe that design plays a big role. In addition, it drastically effects the perceived value of your course. If you look like a pro, you can charge like a pro and people will be happy to pay because the quality justifies the price point.
I can’t begin to explain how valuable these templates will be to you and just how much time they will save you. These pages are structured in a specific way that is ideal for instructional design and are modeled after multi-million dollar courses.
Simply upload the page template in one click and then use the drag and drop builder to customize anything on the entire page like…
- Replace photos
- Change colors
- Change font size and colors
- Add additional content and elements
- Remove anything you don’t need
- And anything else your heart desires 🙂

Lifetime Access to the Course
After working with her for the last two years we’ve been able to scale the business from $1 million in annual revenue to over $5 million. When I thought it couldn’t get any better, she showed me how incorporating an online course into our product suite could completely change the game. This is taking my company to a level I did not think possible. Best business decision I’ve ever made hands down.
– Chris Cavallini
How much is an unfinished course costing you? How many potential customers are you unable to serve due to time and geographic limitations? How long are you going to settle for trading time for money? What would a massively successful flagship course do for your business and authority status? Every day your course remains trapped inside a notebook, Google Doc or Evernote is another day you’re missing out on the game-changing rewards that come from leveraging your expertise.
If your selling your course for $500 then you only need two sales of your product in order to recoup your investment in this program. I have complete confidence that you can do this!
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
I don’t think there is anything Megan does not know when it comes to creating online course. She was able to direct our entire management team step-by-step on exactly what was needed to create the Brief Practitioner Online Course and our Certification Program for corporate leadership. There are very few people who are able to explain complex launch strategy in a way that even “non-techies” can understand. With her technical expertise, design skills, and sales funnel strategies we were able to launch two amazing digital programs.Megan Palicki The Brief Lab
Megan is a true visionary and her skill set is unmatched. She has been able to guide us through the entire course creation process from instructional design, Infusionsoft tech integration, and launch strategy. Megan came through for us when she flew to NYC on a last minute request to help us film our pre-launch videos. Her guidance was invaluable. She is a true champion and delivers the goods.Isa Herrera Renew PT
I love working with Megan. I’ve been impressed with the ease she can explain things and understanding exactly what needs to be done. A big bonus is her comprehensive knowledge of all the systems involved with creating an online course from WordPress, Leadpages and Infusionsoft. It makes my life so much better!Chuck Gilmore Power to Sing
Megan helped me get clear on the ideal combination of content, business model and pricing for my online course. She was able to cut right to the heart of my core offer and bring all the pieces together into a workable plan that I’m excited about and my members will love.Geoff Zimpfer Mortgage Marketing Institute
I loved working with Megan… she really know’s how to get your online course out into the world, and she makes it so painless and easy… After all the decisions this week, hiring Megan was my best for sure!Lisa MacQueen Cleaning Marketer
TRY COURSE CREATION BLITZ FOR A FULL 30 DAYS
If I can’t help you make money then I don’t deserve yours. So if this course doesn’t produce results for you, I want to give you your money back.
- Complete the entire course and if you don’t have everything you need to create your membership site, let me know, and I’ll return every cent of your investment.
However, if you commit to putting in the work, I am confident you’ll find what you’re looking for with Course Creation Blitz because this is the same training I use to train my new employees on how to design and develop online courses for our private clients.
- The theme and systems you’ll use to create your membership site are the same ones my agency uses for our clients who invest approximately $15,000 for the project.
I want you to be 100% satisfied with Course Creation Blitz but if you’re not, simply email me within 30 days. If your account shows that you’ve completed the lessons and assignments, I’ll issue you a full refund.
P.S. I require that you actually prove you’ve done the work because if you do, I know you’ll get results. If you plan on joining, looking around the course and hope that the fairy tooth fairy is going to come and magically complete your course for you, please don’t buy this course. You will be sadly mistaken.
The people I want to serve and the ones who will see success are those that understand the significance productizing your knowledge can be and therefore are committed to following through, putting in the work and then reaping the rewards.
If that’s you, then I can’t wait to help take your business and life to the next level. Test out the course for 30 days, take action, and you’ll look back on this as the best investment you’ve ever made.
It all comes down to personal mental bandwidth but if you wanted to power through the program you could realistically have your course completed in 3 days. In all reality, if you had the fortitude to go on a course creation marathon it’s possible that you could have your course completed within a day.
The live workshops are held over a 4 week timeframe. This is a great time to refine and improve what you’ve completed. It also gives you the opportunity to ask questions and overcome any obstacles that may be holding you up.
There’s a few reasons why a course like this is so rare…
1. With the rate technology changes it’s very difficult for a course creator to keep the technology trainings up to date. Therefore, most choose not to include it at all or cover a very surface level overview. The reason why I’m able to dive into the intricate details and truly go STEP-BY-STEP is because regardless as to whether or not I was offering this course, I would still need to maintain the most current training videos in order to onboard new employees and keep my team informed on any changes to the platforms.
2. An important question to ask yourself when you’re trying to find a coach or trainer in a specific area is this:
“Is this ‘insert topic’, this person’s primary focus?”
Why? If it’s their only business, program, focus… it means they have DEEP knowledge of the nuances and the subtleties it takes to be successful at it. I wouldn’t invest in a program from someone that has a ‘webinar course’, a ‘Facebook success course’, and a ‘copywriting course’, because their level of knowledge of the intricacies of winning at the topic would be extremely shallow.
As I mentioned before, creating online courses is the core focus of my entire business. It’s what my team and I do pretty much all day every day. It’s one thing to be able to create a successful course for your own business but it takes a solid system to be able to do this repeatedly across many different industries. This system has been developed throughout years of trial and error and identifying what differentiates the courses that have seen massive success and those that have fallen short.
By joining Course Creation Blitz you’ll get access to the training, tools and coaching needed to create the highest quality course in the shortest period of time and build it on a system that will support you now and in the future.
3. In addition to that, I’ll just be flat out honest and say that 90% of courses out there are flat out ugly. I truly believe that design does matter, especially in a market that is becoming more and more saturated. Superior design increases the perceived value of your course and sets you apart from your competition.
That’s why I’ve invested a ton of time and effort into providing you with the resources, templates and training that will allow you to produce a high quality design.
You’ll continue to benefit from the course each time you return back to the material and improve certain aspects of your own course.
Plus, chances are that after you create your first course you’ll soon be ready to create another! When the times comes, simply return back to this course to go through it again for your new program.
This is when things get really exciting because you can begin to build sales funnels and drastically increase the customer lifetime value.
IF YOU’VE DECIDED THAT YOUR COMMITTED TO TURNING WHAT YOU KNOW INTO AN ONLINE COURSE YOU HAVE THREE OPTIONS TO GO ABOUT DOING IT…
Option 1: You can try to figure this all out on your own.
But when you look at the cost, is it really worth it?
Without support and trying to learn everything on your own, I can confidently say that the best case scenario will be completing your course within 6 months (although the unfortunate truth is that a high percentage of people who intend to create a course never follow through because all the pieces involved become overwhelming).
So if we take the most optimistic approach…
Let’s say you plan to launch your course once a quarter. So if it takes you 6 months longer to complete, you’d be missing out on revenue from two additional launches.
For easy math we’ll say the price for your course is $1000 and do some quick estimates…
REVENUE LOST: $50,000
*And this doesn’t even take into consideration the opportunity cost of your time… what you could have been doing besides months of research and trial and error.
2) You can hire a company to design and develop the course for you.
And if this is within budget then this is probably a better option for you. Check out our done-for-you services at megankharrison.com
Keep in mind that you still need to get your expertise out of your head 🙂 Unfortunately no one else can do that for you!
3) You can join me in Online Courses Academy and get the best of both worlds.
Option three gives you the best of both worlds. You get your DIY independance but you also get my guidance, coaching and help along the way to plan, design, develop and launch your premium course.
The best part is that anyone can use the same tools and once you learn the process, you’ll be able to create and launch products in a fraction of the time.
By the time you’re finished watching these videos and implementing, you’ll have a 100% completed membership site for your online course thats ready to start accepting payments and serving your customers.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
I really connected with Megan Harrison’s teaching style and professionalism. In just a few short hours Megan’s strategy helped me create a solid outline that I was confident my target market wanted to learn. She unveiled some sweet new tools to use and her program lit a fire under me to get my course off the ground! I like to check back in on the course from time to time because each time I go through it I get another jolt of motivation to put another program together.

It’s just as easy to create a top level course as it is to create a basic online course.
As long as you know what to include and have the right strategy.
