I’m working on a digital service – an online course, to be more specific – and the timeline is pretty tight. So I really want to work very effectively.
There are some tools I use a lot: Evernote for all kind of notes, brainstorming and bookmarks. Wunderlist for personal management. WordPress, of course. Lastpass as an awesome solution for the password problem. And others.
But the whole thing calls for more. I need streamlined processes and systems. Here is what I want to try in the next weeks.
Currently I write down topics, ideas and content for a video course. In the next step I will make a draft of a video script. This will be sent to a writer, who I will hire via Upwork. Then the video will be recorded. Probably I’ll do the voice-over myself or outsource it to a professional speaker.
The video will be available at Udemy, which I will use for the first time. The idea is to make a free course to get feedback from the customers. I will also try to push this by providing digital giveaways in exchange for feedback. Based on these insights I will create a payed course.
I’m especially curious about Upwork, which I’ve tried once and really amazes me. It is pretty cool to have someone who does your work, sitting somewhere in the world. You can focus on more important stuff and she will be happy to support you. Plus, it is not very expensive.
Furthermore I like to try Trello as a project management tool. I’ve heard some good words about it and the visual way of organizing stuff is something I like.
This is a quick sketch of my system. There are a lot of ideas in my head, how to improve it and I’m excited to develop it along the road.
