Is your business course-ready? (Legal Road Map® Podcast S5E128)

It seems like everyone is adding a digital course to their arsenal of offerings these days. With tools like plug-and-play platforms and even courses on how to create your course, it’s easier than ever to start earning serious income from these popular products.

But what about the legal side of digital courses? In the rush to get your course up and running, it may be the last thing on your mind, but not taking the time to put even the most basic legal protections in place can create some real nightmares for you later on.

In this episode, we’ll cover:

  • One thing you must have on your website if you’re collecting any type of personal data from visitors (hello, newsletter sign ups and opt-in forms!)
  • Why Terms and Conditions are an especially good idea to include on your website if you’re looking to add a digital course to your offerings
  • When not including disclosures on your website can land you in a lot of trouble
  • How having a client contract (Terms of Use) with your course students can provide a tremendous amount of protection for you (even if it’s not required by law)
  • The refund/chargeback/payment plan nightmares you can avoid in your Terms of Use
  • Why having a proven result from working with your 1:1 clients is the secret ingredient for big success with your digital course
  • Autumn’s top questions to ask your ideal clients before you create your course
