If there’s anything we’ve learnt in 2020, it’s that traditional jobs aren’t necessarily safe and secure options anymore. So learning how to work online is a pretty valuable skill to make it through these interesting times. And it just so happens that digital courses are one of the best online business models. So let’s take a look at how Amy Porterfield can help you launch yours!

Thinking about creating a course? Look no further than Amy Porterfield's Digital Course Academy. Read my review and see if her training is right for you.

As you may know, I recently launched my own course Hiding to Shining, and since May there has been over 5000 students enrol.

But I didn’t always have this level of success, actually last year I tried to launch a similar course and it was a total flop. Whilst I knew I had good content and I was great at marketing affiliate products, I had no idea how to sell my own course.

The one thing I really wasn’t quite sure about was launching. I knew you should do webinars. And prime your audience. I understood the basics.

But I didn’t really know HOW to make it all come together. What makes a successful webinar? How do you convert webinar viewers into sales? How long should you be in launch mode? All super important factors in having a profitable and scaleable course model.

So I knew if I wanted to succeed I had to learn from an expert. I’m absolutely obsessed with Amy Porterfield. She has such a down to earth attitude and teaching style and is always giving away so much value.

And that’s why I chose Amy Porterfield’s Digital Course Academy

The Digital Course Academy framework is rooted in Amy’s 12 years of creating courses, first for Tony Robbins and then for herself.

The core premise of Digital Course Academy is that a digital course business is the single most powerful and strategic way to make an impact in the world, while growing your income and freedom to life-changing levels. 

Amy’s digital courses have generated over $20 million dollars to date. She’s been in the trenches for multiple years, creating and launching 8 digital courses. Many have been home runs (such as the September 2019 launch of DCA that hit $5M), and of course in the early years, a few were complete failures. Which means she knows what works and what doesn’t. 

She totally speaks my language and yes, I’m a massive fan girl.

What is Amy Porterfield’s Digital Course Academy?

Digital Course Academy is a 12 week online training program. It helps online business owners and entrepreneurs turn their knowledge and know-how into a digital course that will generate consistent revenue .

The program provides a step-by-step strategy for the entire course creation journey — from strategy, to planning, to creation, to launching . . .  with no fluff and no stone left unturned.

The course includes 7 modules released on a weekly basis. There are also multiple implementation weeks for students to take in the meatier topics and actually put them into ACTION. After all, the only way to succeed with a course is to actually get down to working on it and Amy is there to help you every step of the way.

As well as the self paced modules, students get access to a Facebook group where Amy goes live multiple times a week for 12 weeks, so you have amazing support along the way. And after the 12 weeks is up, you get to join her lifelong alumni group.

In a nutshell, DCA teaches students how to make the ultimate shift from struggling to make money online, feeling stretched too thin, and feeling uncertain of what they should be doing to create a profitable asset in their business — a digital course that they can launch over and over again.

Doesn’t that sound dreamy?!

It’s not just me that thinks so.

Check out these rave reviews

“Working with Amy changed my whole life. Even if you’re afraid, you just have to do it. Look at your situation right now. Do you want to stay in the same place, or are you willing to take a risk and build a better life?”

Amanda Ferguson – Women’s Etiquette Coach

“So far, my launches have generated $21,000, and I’m adding 250–300 leads per month to my list!”

Brianna Firestone – Marketer, Educator, Strategist

“Before Amy, I had no idea what an online course was! With Amy’s help, my courses generated 7 figures in the first 21 months!!”

Cathy Heller – Music Licensing Coach and Podcaster

“You could spend years of your life trying to figure out how to create a profitable webinar on your own… or you can work with Amy and find the success you’ve been searching for.”

Christina Galbato – Travel Blogger & Instagram Coach

And that’s just a handful. I’ve read pages & pages of heartfelt reviews of how much Amy’s course has transformed people’s lives and businesses. It’s just beautiful.

Who is Amy Porterfield’s Digital Course Academy for?

This program is a perfect fit for:

  1. Anyone who has an idea for a course (even if they still need to develop their idea) and are eager to jump in and do the work.
  2. Someone who is currently doing one-on-one work (coaching, consulting, service-based business) and no longer wants to trade time for dollars.
  3. Anyone who already has a digital course but their results with selling it have been lackluster and frustrating.

What if I don’t fit into those categories, can I still join?

Of course! The nature of the course takes you through the beginning to end process, so even if you’ve only just decided that the course journey sounds right for you then you’ll fit right in.

Amy does recommend having an email list to get started because it helps speed up the process. She will teach how to grow an email list to support a digital course launch, but she will not be teaching how to start an email list from scratch as she has a separate course for this.

However, lucky for you, I’m pretty good at email list building. In fact it’s something I teach within my own branding course. Which you get access to as a bonus when you join DCA with me. So don’t let that stop you!

If you’ve got the drive and are ready to do the work, we can help you create a course.

What’s Included in Amy Porterfield’s Digital Course Academy

DCA includes the following:

  • 7 Implementation Modules showing students literally EVERYTHING they need to do to turn their expertise into a profitable digital course that their audience truly wants.
  • The Webinar Fill-Up Formula to make sure you never deliver to an empty room again, and instead get a packed house full of perfectly-targeted, “ready to buy” prospects.
  • Next-level email marketing, sales page, and social media strategies to amplify their results and get up to 3x the enrolments. 
  • A complete, step-by-step launch plan showing you how to pre-sell your course (before recording a single lesson!) and how to create and launch a high-converting webinar presentation that ethically (and authentically) enrols more students than you ever thought possible every time you deliver it.
  • Plus students will receive plenty of bonuses to help generate unstoppable momentum (and keep it) right until their course launch…

That’s what I love about Amy, she’s all about the value and is so committed to transforming people’s lives. She truly goes above and beyond to ensure people get results. Not to mention, she makes things fun!

What’s the investment?

Amy Porterfield’s Digital Course Academy is $1,997 or 6 monthly payments of $387.

It also includes a money-back guarantee!

Is it worth it?

Yes, yes and yes! Believe me, I’ve invested my money in a LOT of things in my time online. Sometimes up to $50k in one company that didn’t end up teaching me anywhere near what I’ve learnt inside DCA.

Excited? You should be!

When can I get access to DCA?
