Why Validate Your Course Idea?

Before diving into the methods, let’s understand why validating your course idea is vital:

  1. Eliminate Doubts: Validate your course idea to address questions and doubts lingering in your mind, such as whether people will buy your product or if your positioning is right.
  2. Avoid Wasted Efforts: Validating your idea helps you avoid going full-fledged into creating a course only to realize later that there is little to no demand.
  3. Gain Confidence: By validating demand and viability, you will feel more confident in selling your product and providing value to your audience.

Ideas for Demand & Idea Validation

Here are effective methods to validate demand and idea viability for your course:

  1. Competitor Research: Check for competitors in your niche. If there are many competitors, it indicates that the industry has money and your unique positioning will differentiate you from others.
  2. Surveys and Feedback: Conduct surveys to gather insights from your target audience and gauge their interest in your course.
  3. Pre-Launch Sign-Ups: Offer special discounts for pre-launch sign-ups to assess the level of interest in your course.
  4. Join Similar Communities: Engage with communities that cater to your target audience to understand their needs, desired outcomes, and pain points.

Selling Approaches

Now, let’s explore two effective selling approaches for course that will help you to validate the market as well:

  1. Sell Before You Create:
    • Create an irresistible offer that you want to sell.
    • Conduct live sessions and record them to create your recorded course.
    • Use customer feedback to enhance the course with additional training.
    • This method ensures you know there is demand before investing significant time in course creation.
  2. Minimum Viable Product (MVP) as Cohort Model:
    • Start with pre-training materials and live training calls.
    • Gather feedback and add additional training if needed.
    • Later, sell the course with more resources as a recorded model.
    • Offer monthly coaching calls to address doubts and provide support.
  3. Create an MVP for Membership:
    • Structure your membership with a main recorded course.
    • Add additional courses with live training and recordings based on demand.
    • Incorporate live challenges and coaching calls to enhance engagement and value.


Validating the demand and viability of your course idea is a critical step in the course creation process. By using effective methods such as competitor research, surveys, pre-launch sign-ups, and engaging with your audience, you can confidently create a course that resonates with your audience and drives results.
