Grow an Engaged Community Online to

Sell Out Your Courses and Programs

Imagine selling out your online courses or coaching programs in days or hours.

Your community is excited and is ready to buy at the set price.

They tell others about you, and your product launch feels like a big celebration.

What if you could do it even with a small-size community?

Elfin sold out her All About Italian Retreat and made $6k.

"In the weeks of selling the [All About Italian] Retreat, I [realized that] I couldn’t have done it without my community. I was overwhelmed by the incredible number of shoutouts from other teachers and polyglots. People spontaneously offering to promote and share information about it."

- Elfin Waters, All About Italian

Trisha no longer needs to "hunt people down."

"I only sold once I had a community! So maybe I could imagine the thought of ‘selling something’ which was intimidating. But now that I have a community, it feels different. In a way, it feels like the way it used to feel to find new clients locally here in France. Once people know what you do, know you personally, and know how you work, you don’t have to hunt them down with advertising."

- Trisha Traughber, Vagabond English
