Bless you, course creators, you bestowers of higher learning. Bless your generosity. Bless your knowledge. Bless your follow-through.

Creating a course—developing a course, writing a course, producing a course—is the work of determined business owners. Selling a course, though? Selling a course takes everything to a whole new level of difficulty.

But you, blessed course creator? You have this. And I have a big little list of things that can help: writing prompts just for you, writing prompts just for course creators.

As you build your launch plan, you can use these writing prompts to begin thinking about the blog posts you want to create as part of your content marketing efforts. Whether you want to publish a series of posts on your own blog, intend to be a guest blogger on another space, or if you’re thinking about composing a series of emails for a newsletter or mini-blog posts for Instagram, these prompts will help you dream up a host of interesting possibilities.
