How Consistency Can Make or Break Your Online Course
Have you ever tried an online course only to give up on it halfway through? If so, you’re not alone — and you’re also probably not giving yourself enough credit, as the majority of people don’t finish online courses they start. When you look at the course, however, you might be surprised at how few times the instructor actually talks with his or her students or provides opportunities for real-time feedback and discussion, among other things.
Why Consistency Matters
An online course is not just about the content. It’s about the experience and how that experience changes over time. You want your students to be able to go from one chapter of your course to another with ease. You want them to feel like they are learning at a steady pace. And you want them to come back for more, because they’re hooked on what you have to offer.
The Benefits of Being Consistent
Consistency is a key to success in any business. It’s important because it builds trust with your audience and it helps you avoid the risk of becoming irrelevant. The more consistent you are, the more people will come back for more content from you. This is true for both online courses and podcasts.
The Consequences of Inconsistency
If you are an online course creator, it is important to be consistent with the content and structure of your courses. This consistency will make it easier for students to see the benefits of your course and understand how they can apply it. Inconsistent content will confuse students and may even lead them to unsubscribe from your course altogether.

Tips for Staying Consistent with Your Online Course
1) Schedule your posts at the same time every day. Some popular times are early morning, lunchtime and early evening. 2) Set up a system to remind yourself when it’s time to post. For example, I set an alarm on my phone that goes off at 8:00 am every morning to remind me to start working on my post for the day. 3) Don’t be afraid of taking a break! It’s important not to burn out by constantly working without a break.
