Discover the Proven Step By Step Method to Launch Your Online Course in 60 Days
Learn how to package your knowledge and expertise into an online course and pre-sell it before you've even created it.
Introducing the SELF STUDY version of my
Launch Your Damn Course 60 Day Accelerator
This Accelerator is all about helping you to take action, so that at the end of the 60 days you will have researched, validated, designed and pre-sold your damn course!
Yes you heard me right! Rather than spend time and money creating an entire course before you know if people are even willing to buy it, you will work the smart way by reverse engineering this process and getting paid upfront to create and deliver your course.
There's no point in you wasting precious hours creating all that content if you haven't validated who will buy your course. That's why I teach you a method that puts profit in your pocket first!
And I TRULY believe that EVERYONE has something of value to teach others, and that a course is one of the best ways to reach more people than you ever thought possible and make an impact - plus a healthy dose of revenue!
Stop dreaming. Start doing!
Avant-Folk Live Looping Artist, Vocalist, Violinist.
I have been dreaming about creating an online course for 6 years. I had tried a few times, but failed completely. When I started the program, I only had 100 people on my list and I was burned out on teaching 30 1:1 students every single week and feeling hopeless about how to grow my income and get out of the time-for-money hamster wheel.
During the program, I not only grew my list to 350 people and counting, but I Launched My Damn Course with 6 registrations, more than doubling my investment, in the middle of the Covid-19. I went on to launch and sell it out again 4 months later at a $500 price point with a waitlist! Then just four months after that, I raised the price to $1,000 and nearly sold it out again!
I have also gone on to enroll over 50% of all participants in my course into a graduate membership program where I receive consistent monthly income! And even more than the money, I am enjoying my work like never before and I am growing an amazing community of the high-vibe clients I've always dreamed of!
Natalie's crystal clear methods, fierce love and complete passion for empowering her students has absolutely changed my life and the outlook of my career! She helped me work through massive self- doubt and fear!I've discovered a whole new pathway for my business and I now feel confident, inspired and so excited when I wake up every day, with dozens of new email signups to my list and a course I can now continue to grow enrollments and income from, every time I launch.
Do yourself a favour, take Natalie's Accelerator!
Registered Health Coach
I highly recommend Natalie's Accelerator. I learned SO much, and was challenged to step into processes that I've otherwise chosen to avoid until now, such as really nailing my ideal Avatar, finding my sweet spot, and learning to build my mailing list. This is not just a course about HOW to do it. I actually launched and made sales! Thank you Natalie for creating a fabulous online experience, and delivering it in such a user friendly manner. You set the bar high!
Lighthouse Mentor Network
When I wanted to learn how to create an online course, I immediately went to Natalie because I knew she would deliver over the top value. The Accelerator that she has created is unlike anything out there in the marketplace. Natalie generously shares her diverse and deep knowledge in digestible pieces and easy to understand layman’s language. My first online course is launched and selling!
CEO of KBJ Anderson & author of Learning to Lead, Leading to Learn
I loved how the course was not just valuable in terms of content, but it also helped demonstrate what a great course could look like (using the platform as a customer, how to set up a successful course, how to access the videos, etc.). I made over $3,000 from my first paid workshop launch and am thrilled.
Change + Project Manager
The sheer experience of this entire Accelerator made it for me. You have such a professional approach, great content and so much patience with students. Two months ago I knew literally nothing about this stuff - today it is a big part of my life. Now I have seen how much effort it must have taken you to put together, I feel it is a very good investment AND I believe it should be twice the price. This is an awesome course and Natalie you’re a great teacher.
What’s will I learn the Launch Your Damn Course Accelerator?
Great questions. There are four foundational learning modules and one BONUS module on Facebook ads that you'll get access to immediately on March 1st, to make sure you have everything you need, as you need it, to nail your launch!
Module 1: Validate your course idea and ideal customer.
"This first module of your course has been worth the price of admission alone. Thank you! I validated the idea I’m most passionate about, I discovered another big pain point that I hadn’t considered at all, I have a clear picture of Chris, my Avatar and I came up with the mini-course /magnet idea."
~ Jim Greer
Before you go dreaming up a course you need to understand how to leverage your sweetspot! Then we figure out who needs what you have to offer, who your ideal customer is and get inside their heads to understand exactly how you can help them and what value they will place on your course. This is the key stage that so many course creators miss. Not you though!
Module 2: Build your email list and early buzz.
“We started our promotion in March just as we headed into COVID lockdown and prototyped a programme of weekly content and monthly group coaching for flower growers, which was all FREE. We went from zero to 160 people in our Facebook Group and 169 on our email list. We signed up 97 people to our programme on Podia on a free trial and are now converting them to sales!”
~ Julie Treanor
Without an audience and a group of people who are already interested in what you have to offer, your launch will be a flop and you'll only hear crickets when you open up to presell. This module will show you all the ways in which you can reach and enroll your ideal customer. Then it's up to you do to the work and make it happen!
Module 3: Launch, market and pre-sell your course!
“Natalie you’re a master at online business and you helped me hone in on invaluable details like finding my ideal customer, organizing my expertise into a clear system and using powerful language to communicate what my course is about that I never would have been able to do alone.”
~ Emma Back
This is it. The moment you've been working towards. This is the stage where you put the pedal to the metal and make shit happen. By following my proven methods, checklists, templates and swipe copy, you will feel ready and confident to market and presell your course like a BOSS!
Module 4: Create and deliver your course LIVE
“Landing page and intro video done. Sent out my first newsletter promotion for the free mini course. Shared intro video all over social media. Pre-sold spots on my course. I guess I’d better start filming the course then!”
~ Dave Crix
Once you start seeing course sales coming in and students enrolling you will no doubt freak out that you haven't actually created your course yet! But don't worry it's all part of the plan. Presell your course first THEN deliver and knock their socks off. This is the part you will do live and I will make sure you that you have a plan of attack of exactly how to deliver your course easily and effectively on your pilot run.

About Your Teacher, Natalie...
Hi. I'm Natalie Sisson, an Online Business Strategist, Author, Speaker, Podcaster, Teacher and lover of handstands.
For the last 10 years I've been designing, creating and selling over 30 online courses to the tune of $600,000 in revenue with 80% profit margins!
From mini launches through to the full shebang, I've done it all and along the way learned all the things you really need to do to rock a launch as well as some awesome screwups and failures that have provided me with the best education around how to launch right!
My courses are designed to get you results while empowering you to apply what you learn in the best way.
My superpower is bringing fantastic people together to support each other in this learning, while I crack the whip (in a loving and supportive way) to get you past your own roadblocks so you take massive action.
I've designed this accelerator to give you the confidence to believe in yourself, and take mini steps towards designing, validating and preselling your course, by sharing only the most important things you need to know and do to be successful.
My mission is to prove to you that your skills, knowledge and experience are what people need and will pay for.
Hear from my wonderful students!

When stepping outside of your comfort zone it can be easy to lose focus at the first hurdle.
Being part of Natalie's Accelerator enabled me to push through my own road blocks and connect with and be inspired by like-minded people.
Natalie was awesome at keeping me accountable and motivated to finally launch my first online course on mastering Type 1 Diabetes.
Dr Claudia Gross
HUGE thank you to Natalie for supporting us on this path and nourishing a huge sense of "It's really possible!" and "you can do it and you have to share your gifts".
Natalie offered so many doable exercises, practice-oriented knowledge and valuable transformations with ease. Our regular calls, sharing our wins and challenges, committing to our actions for the week ahead were the key ingredients.
I loved how approachable she is as well as caring and sharing her insights authentically, supporting all of us and me to make progress beyond my wildest expectations.
Chief Playfulness Coach
In the Accelerator Natalie provided a safe space for us for accountability and support. I would not have launched my course made my first two sales online EVER, if I had not had this group support and the friendly nudges from Natalie!
Not only that, with her huge experience as an online entrepreneur Natalie is able to shift between coaching and expert role, so having access to her for my course launch meant having a personal hotline to all the information and advice I needed.
No hype. Just value, knowledge and results.
This Accelerator is designed to ensure you presell your minimum viable course and make the price of this live course back and even double or triple your investment.
I'm here to get you results and show you what a lucrative revenue stream online courses can be. Imagine receiving an extra income of $1,000 or $5,000 or $10,000 per month once you've tested, validated and pre-sold your course?!
What's more you can continue to grow and scale that without you personally having to work longer or harder. That's the beauty of being able to scale a course beyond yourself.
Who is this Accelerator ideal for?
It is ideal for anyone wanting to teach others what they know, like, are naturally good at, or are learning and applying themselves.
Yes it is that simple. You are unique and you have unique gifts to share with the world.
It is NOT for people who:
- Aren't prepared to commit, show up and do the work
- Won't block out their calendar in advance to make time to go on this journey
- Can't get out of their own way and want to stick to their excuses
- Are not prepared to invest in themselves fully or spend money where needed.
Launching and selling your own damn course is the BEST way to impact others and transform your own!
Founder of actionimpactmovement.com
Natalie’s Launch your Damn Course has been inspiring. The content is excellently organized, clear, and engaging. Her videos and workbooks are concise and helpful – and it’s great to be able to review them over and over again! I have been able to narrow down my own focus, make practical strides based on her guidance and stay motivated thanks to her quick, on-point, and meaningful feedback.
Copywriter and Agency Founder
I invested in LYDC in 2019. At the time, my email marketing list was meagre and my community was poor. It was no surprise that the first course I created sold just twice. But that didn’t stop me! I knew I had valuable information to share and a burning desire to be of service. LYDC showed me if I wanted to make a success of courses, things needed to change. Using LinkedIn to grow my community, and the lessons learned in LYDC, I successfully pre-sold and then created a bigger and better course that I’ve since launched three times. I paid $997 for your LYDC Accelerator and I've made back over 10x that.
I’m now building a membership and harnessing Instagram to grow my community further. Natalie taught me the magic of validating and selling an idea before you build it, and the power of a strong email marketing list and community. Lessons I’ll remember and reuse for life!
What type of courses can I create?
I have the most amazing variety of students and courses who have gone through my Accelerator from a wide range of industries and backgrounds.
Here's a sample of course areas they created in:
- Getting paid gigs for your band
- Making healthy flower cream butter cupcakes
- Project management for Real Estate Marketing Agents
- Overcoming Anxiety and gaining confidence
- Becoming a digital nomad
- Change Management in a VUCA world
- How to get a better sleep
- How to create exceptional guest experiences on AirBnB
- Flower Farmer's Business Know-How
- Singer Songwriter to Stage Performer
- Leadership and development
- How to charge the right fees and earn more as a copywriter
- How to create and design active wear
- Oracle Card Reading
- Leadership and Leading Learner Principles
- And so many more!
80% of my students start with a tiny email list and often no idea of what their course will be. Yet they've gone on to make tens of thousands in course sales.
Websites were built, sales pages written, ideal avatars found, courses created, curriculums designed, optins created, lists were massively grown.
More importantly mindsets were shifted to one of belief and confidence that making money online and launching their damn course was entirely up to them and completely achievable.
60 Day SELF-STUDY Accelerator
That’s $2,870 worth of value!
We officially kick off the week beginning March 1st when you will get access to all the modules at once, however the weekly email will guide you through each lesson in a way that makes it doable for you.
In terms of time, the more you can set aside and lock in to work on the course modules and implementation, the more likely you are to have a successful presell and launch!
I'd suggest that a minimum of 2-3 hours per week is needed and that will be a solid amount of time to really make progress.
You'll get immediate access to all 5 modules the lessons, which are all designed to be short, sweet, and actionable, from March 1st.
Nope. While this is called Launch Your Damn Course, and that's exactly what I want for you to do, it's not about creating all the content and structure (you will work on that though to an extent).
It's actually about understanding what you offer, validating your audience, and launching your course sales page to pre-sell your course before doing all that work!
Then once you have actual sales and students enrolled you can run your course live at a date that feels doable to you and lets you prepare and deliver as you go, based on what you've designed.
Great question and most likely yes, especially if you want a professional-looking course and eventually a thriving online business.
During the Accelerator I will be sharing a few key tools that will make your life easier such as an email provider if you don't have one, a course platform provider (easy to use and affordable), and other free and paid for tools to make sure you have a great launch.
It's up to you what you wish to invest in and you may even end up saving money when I share what you really need versus what you may already have. I'd budget around $100-200 tops.
I believe you can do this.
I truly believe that there is no better time than now to launch your damn course.
If you've been holding back for years because you don't think you have what it takes, or you're overwhelmed by the technical set up, or you think you can't afford to invest in yourself, or worse - you simply think it won't work for you...I hear you.
I had all the same doubts when I created my first course. But when I struggled through with no help and made my very first sale of $297 I was THRILLED. I couldn't believe it!
That's why I designed this Accelerator - to alleviate all those worries, because I'm right here with you, guiding, teaching, coaching and showing you step by step how to do this for yourself and sharing only what you need to know and do so you can avoid the long nights, tears and money wasted that I did over the years.
Remember, this an experience where you're supported and held accountable to get over any roadblock and make launching your course a reality.
Imagine how amazing you will feel when you've made your first sale and are on your way to create a real revenue stream by getting paid to be uniquely you and making an impact in other peoples' lives by helping them?
Damn amazing that's how. Let's do this!
