Back to today’s topic, your plan to realistically make one million dollars this year from your online course.
Now, in order to make a million dollars in one year, it starts with the belief that it is possible.
And remember, it’s okay if your goal isn’t a million, maybe it’s 100K, maybe it’s more than a million, whatever it is.
But here’s the thing, you don’t even need to have complete confidence that it’s possible for you, I just need you to understand that this feat of hitting your biggest revenue goal this year is possible.
You already know at least one person who has done it before: me.
I went from $200,000 in revenue to a million dollars in annual revenue and less than a year in.
Since then, we’ve done over eight figures in sales.
So is it possible?
I am living, walking proof that this is possible.
And if you look at the results of some of our clients, you’ll know that I’m not the only one.
So today I’m sharing three things you need to make this year your biggest and most profitable yet.
Let’s get started.
My name is Caitlin Bacher, founder and CEO of Scale With Success®, and I’m on a mission to help course creators all over the world grow their business in a way that is profitable and scalable. We are sharing revealing conversations about what it really takes to scale an online course business to millions of dollars per year. Join us here to discover the tough decisions we’ve had to make, the biggest failures we’ve had to bounce back from, and the learnings that emerged every step of the way. We are so grateful that we have the chance to share it all with you right here on Scale with Success®: The Podcast Built for Course Creators. Let’s get started.
Today we’re talking all about how to create a plan to make this year your most profitable to date.
Whether your goal is a million dollars, 250,000 or even 75,000, today’s show is going to be exactly what you need to get off to a good start.
This episode is a juicy one and will be divided into two parts:
- Mindset and
- Sales and marketing.
So part #1 is Million Dollar Mindset.
After I set an annual revenue goal for my business, I like to set aside some time to journal and ask myself five questions to really dig deep and unlock the biggest subconscious belief that might be holding me back.
We’ve all got them, and I find that every year of growth reveals a new set of beliefs to dismantle and replace.
So the thing about letting go of old beliefs is that it will be much easier for you to do if you have a new belief to replace it with, so that new belief can act as an anchor in the new paradigm that you’ll create for yourself.
So make sure to download this podcast to save it for later, okay?
Listen to the questions now to get your wheels turning, but you don’t need to write down anything just yet.
Later on you can re-listen to the podcast and set aside 20 minutes or so to journal your answers to the following five questions.
Here’s question #1: What negative habit or behavior do you currently hold that if let go, would unlock your earning potential and make it easier for you to make a million dollars this year?
We’ve all got one, and chances are you know exactly what it is. It’s that thing that you’re holding onto that you’ve been trying to let go of for quite some time.
Question #2: What is the specific feeling that drives that behavior?
Question #3: What is the specific thought that drives that feeling?
Question #4: What would it feel like if you were able to just completely make that thought disappear?
Number 5: What actions would you start taking in your business as a result of that new feeling?
And last of all, what would happen as a result of those actions?
Now, those are some pretty big questions, and that’s why I said, you know what, we’re going to cover them right now, but I want you to go back later and do a little journaling around this.
So the reason making a million dollars in annual revenue is hard for some is because they haven’t made any room for that to happen.
Their head is completely crowded with thoughts that are on a loop, and those thoughts are keeping them stuck.
For me, the belief I had to let go of in order to have my first million dollar year all those years ago was that I wasn’t enough.
That belief caused me to live in fear that I would never achieve my goals and to beat myself up more than I needed anytime things didn’t go as planned.
So bouncing back from setbacks and mistakes was a lot harder than it needed to be because of all the negative self-talk that I was engaging in.
Now, perhaps being hard on myself and forcing myself to work without rest may have been something that served me in the past, but it certainly was not serving me anymore.
I was tired, I felt burned out, and all that negative self-talk that I was carrying around was incredibly heavy.
Once I identified the core belief that was holding me back, which was I’m not enough, then I was able to replace it with the new belief, I am enough.
In fact, I wrote, “I am enough,” on a Post-It and I placed it right next to my laptop.
I was committed to holding that belief because I knew it was the only way I would ever reach my million dollar goal.
Remember that creating your new belief is key. It’s what you can direct your attention towards over and over again.
So let’s get into part #2, which is all about Million Dollar Sales and Marketing.
Now, while scaling a high ticket group coaching program can be hard and expensive as you’ll have to do all the sales and delivery yourself until you can afford to hire a bigger coaching team to assist your clients and a bigger sales team to convert those prospects into customers.
Plus, you’ll need even more software staff and operation systems to keep things running smoothly, and no time to spend on marketing tasks that actually drive traffic to your sales team.
However, scaling an online course is both simple and profitable.
I want you to remember those two words when it comes to selling and marketing your online course: simple and profitable.
Now, I’ve found that most course creators tend to over complicate their business as they fail to remember this essential rule of business, simple scales and complex fails.

You need 2 things to scale to a million dollars with your online course:
- You need a sales mechanism – something that’s going to convert leads into sales,
- And you need traffic – something that’s generating those leads in the first place.
Now, let’s talk about what a sales mechanism is first and what you need to look for when it comes to creating one.
A sales mechanism is something that reliably converts traffic, also known as large groups of people, into customers.
So the sales mechanism we teach inside Scale With Success® Accelerator is called a Profitable Sales Engine™, which is more powerful than both live webinars and automated webinars.
I’ll walk you through all that data inside my free masterclass if you’re looking for the nitty-gritty details.
But what you need to understand now is that not all sales mechanisms are created equally.
A Profitable Sales Engine™ takes the automation benefits from an automated webinar without the low conversion rate that usually comes along with it.
A Profitable Sales Engine™ takes the high conversion benefits from a live webinar without the low attendance rate that comes along with it.
This leaves you with the most profitable selling system on the planet.
It’s simply unbeatable because it’s so simple.
Simple is profitable and scalable.
Consumer behavior has really shifted over the last couple years, and nobody wants to wait until your next launch in order to buy.
There’s too many available options for them, and they’ll just go to one of your competitors that is selling 24/7.
It’s 2023, and if you don’t have an automated profitable sales engine that converts attention into a lead into a customer, you’re going to be left in the dust.
Now, our Scale with Success® Accelerator program will give you all the steps you need to get yours up and running fast in less than 30 days to be exact.
Now, once you have that Profitable Sales Engine™ turned on, generating traffic becomes a breeze.
My absolute favorite strategy for generating traffic to my profitable sales engine is the short social video.
Make a video that’s less than 60 seconds and post it anywhere your heart desires, TikTok, Instagram Reels, Facebook Reels, YouTube Shorts, LinkedIn.
All of those platforms are prioritizing short form content, and since you have a profitable sales engine that is working 24/7, you’ll actually have time to create content.
Now, you can turn these videos into an ad that drives traffic to your profitable sales engine as well, but it’s not necessary.
It kills me every time I watch an online course creator’s video on TikTok or listen to their podcast and they do not have a profitable sales engine.
Instead, they ask me to follow them or send me to some lead magnet where they’re asking me to wait months before their next launch.
No, thank you.
I buy a ton of online courses for me and my team, and it’s gotten to the point where if someone is launching, I’ll likely never buy.
I don’t have time to wait, and I’ll just go someplace else.
So let’s recap your plan.
Number 1: Create a new belief to help you reach your goals faster by asking yourself each of the five questions that I shared earlier.
Number 2: Build a profitable sales engine that sells your course on autopilot.
Number 3: Make simple short videos that add value and drive traffic to your profitable sales engine.
Simple, profitable, and even dare I say fun.
That’s all for now, and I’ll chat with you next week on Scale with Success®, the podcast.
