The most frequently asked question I receive from people who want to create and develop their own e-mail workshops, e-courses or tutorials is how to pick most suitable topic to develop.
Julie D. Raque is a business and personal coach who runs Matrix Coaching Services (http://www.matrixcoachingservices.com) and she once asked:
"...In day 1 of creating a workshop, you instruct us to pick a topic and then develop an outline. I have brainstormed several topics that I know in long run all will be workshops. What I need help is in deciding which one to pick.
"Here's my dilemma -- My first thought is to pick a topic that will be somewhat easy for me to do. It being my first workshop, I didn't want to choose a difficult topic. Is this right thinking? If so, it narrows it down to 2 topics. Following that decision is another one to make...how long to make workshop. Do certain lengths of workshops work better than others Meaning, does a 3-week workshop (one lesson per week) work better than a 12-week workshop?"
When you're only starting out in developing your first e-mail workshop, picking which topic to work on is first of many decisions you will make along way.
If you came up with a long list of possible workshop topics during your brainstorming session, you might end up confused and undecided of just what you want to develop first.
It's always best to ask yourself:
~ Which topic are you most comfortable with?
~ Which topic can you develop quickly?
~ Which topic do you have contents or resources available already?
~ Which topic do you think will be in demand and will generate immediate interest?
It's not wrong to pick easy topic and develop it first same way that it's not wrong to pick hardest topic either. Instead, ask yourself which of topics you came up with will create highest level of interest or response in your niche.
