Attention Entrepreneurs Wanting To Sell Online Programs and Courses:
How To Build and Launch Your First Online Course While Avoiding the Pain, Frustration and Delays Of Doing It Alone
Know what to do, how to do it, and get all the support you need to transform your expertise into a high-value product while gaining greater freedom in your work-life balance
I see it again and again, so I have to ask.
Are you tired of constantly scrambling to get new clients?
Is marketing sucking up too much of your time while you’re aching to be helping people instead?
And even if you do manage to fill your workshops, do you find yourself wishing there was some way you could help far more people?
And to top it all off, do you find yourself longing for the freedom to spend the time you want on the things and people you love most?
Then you're not alone...and I can help
You see, I specialize in helping entrepreneurs that face challenges like these every day. My goal? Build greater freedom and control into their businesses and lives.
Does that sound like the sort of help you could use? It should, especially if:
- You feel you're burning out from too much work for too little outcome.
- Your revenue model's not serving you well anymore but you have no idea how to change it.
- You've toyed with the idea of creating an online course, but the technology scares you.
- You're afraid to let go of the security of what you have to reach for something better.
The Big Leap Bootcamp® is my self-study program that guides you through creating your own online course and repeatable system that sells and delivers your value over and over.
The Big Leap Bootcamp is delivered in 4 Parts:
In Part 1 you will learn how to set up a strategy for your business based on online courses and group programs.
In Part 2 you will go through detailed planning process so that your courses and programs will be engaging and take into account different learning styles.
In Part 3 you will create the components that form your course, videos, audios, downloadable documents, assessments and all those components that will make your program uniquely yours.
In Part 4 you will plan the launching of your program from publishing the course on an appropriate course platform and roll-out your launch strategy.
That said, the most important question for you to answer is this:
What Are You Prepared To Do About It?
Of course, you can continue doing and getting what’s become your “normal”…but that’s obviously not what you want otherwise you wouldn’t be reading this right now.
Or you could hunker down and hope to change things on your own…but that means resigning yourself to the mistakes and struggles that come with going it solo.
Or better yet, you could find someone who’s already travelled the path and successfully arrived at the destination…a trainer committed to helping you arrive too, but much faster and easier.
You see, the Big Leap Bootcamp® gives you the benefit of avoiding all the costly mistakes I made and all the delays I encountered when figuring out this process myself
That means you can now:
- Cut your expenses and time-to-market by a huge margin
- Eliminate any fear of technology and online marketing
- Stop the nagging worry that you don't have what it takes
- And overcome the paralysis of not knowing where to start
In other words, you'll have your own trusted business-growth mentor at your side. So back to that all important question:
What are you prepared to do about it?
Just imagine this for a second. Waking up to a steaming cup of coffee…AND the excitement of seeing new registrations in your inbox for your online course.
Imagine smiling as you hear potential clients automatically recognizing you as an expert…and feeling the pride of having a new client thank you for helping them in an affordable way through your online course.
Not to mention feeling the thrill of having a business that provides you with the freedom to do more of whatever you’re wanting in your life: spending more nights with your family and friends, working on your business from abroad, having the money to travel, or maybe even just more time to read.
I imagined all that too awhile back. Now I know how to make it happen.
And it’s all waiting for you right now through the Big Leap Bootcamp®
By the way, in case we haven't met already, I'm Petra Mayer.
I'm an Online Course Strategy Mentor.
My specialty is helping entrepreneurs like you:
- get more clients,
- build new streams of revenue,
- and serve more clients in a bigger way.
And I do that by making it easy to know what you need to do – and what NOT to do – when developing your own online course.
In fact, you know how some people say they “have books in them”?
Well, I’ve always “had courses in me”…courses I wanted to get out, so I could help more people reach their goals.
My problem was I had no clue how to go about creating my own online course.
And I especially had no clue about how to get today’s powerful technology working smoothly for me.
For the longest time I stumbled around making videos and I somehow cobbled together my first course.
It failed. (Ouch!)
Then, still thinking I could figure this out on my own, I tried another course topic.
It failed too.
But I Wasn’t About To Give Up Because I Knew A Successful Online Course Would Be a Game Changer For Me.
So I invested my time and money in training. I learned all I could about course building and marketing and the technology involved…AND I faithfully implemented what I was learning.
And somewhere along the line I had a realization: all the other entrepreneurs out there experiencing my dream weren’t born knowing how to create successful online courses.
I realized those successful course creators must have learned from someone how to do it at one point.
And that meant I could learn how to do it too!
Fortunately for me, not only did I find the guidance I’d been missing, but I also discovered the keys to creating online courses in the process.
From there, I went on figuring out ways to build on everything I’d learned…
…not only from others, but also from my MBA and my 11 years in online strategy and e-commerce with success stories like British Airways and oneworld Management Company and my one-on-one client work.
So what does all this have to do with you?
Well, now I've compressed everything I learned throughout my long journey into the the 4-Part Big Leap Bootcamp® Course available on Udemy.
- everything I use today to effectively storymap online courses...
- to build sales funnels that work on auto-pilot...
- to convert more prospects into sales and revenue...
- and most important, to make sure your course gets finished and launched in the first place...
...because there's nothing worse than wanting to build and launch an online course, but struggling with the procrastination and lack of clarity that's inevitable when you're on your own.
Plus, I've designed the Big Leap Bootcamp® to give you the benefit of 2 significant factors I found missing in the training I received:
- We'll establish your strategy first, then build your course...but you won't be done until you've worked through getting your course ready to launch
You’ll learn what to do. How to do it. And while receiving all the the tools you’ll inevitably need to actually make your course come to life.
(I’ll go over all the details in a moment.)
In my own experience, my online course made nothing less than a big impact on my business.
I can say with true pride that my course provides huge value to my clients.
Especially since it helps them overcome a major issue that kept them from getting their own businesses online.
And the benefits don’t stop there.
Now when I’m talking to potential clients, I have so much more value I can offer…plus I’m respected as an expert like never before.
Having my own course also gives me lots of material I draw from for interviews, free reports, speaking engagements, workshops, blog articles and so on.
Not to mention enabling me to enjoy a work-life balance where I’m energized and proud of the value I’ve created.
You get the idea.
And now that reality can be yours too because I intentionally designed the Big Leap Bootcamp® so that it:
- Creates clarity and provides support: You'll need focus and help to create your first online course...and you'll get it! (Count on knowing what to do and how to do it)
- Delivers only the essential resources: I know you don't have time for any fluff, so I've only included truly vital materials. (That way you invest more energy in what really makes a difference...and have more time left for running your business.)
- Makes the entire process repeatable: Your one-time investment gives you the template for building out multiple courses over time. (The more courses you create, the more you break away from 1-to-1 services and free yourself professionally and personally.)
- Provides the accountability you need: That which gets measured gets managed...AND gets done.
- Gives you the time to make it happen: You are already busy in your business, supporting your family and now you add this major project - no wonder you are nervous about it. And that is why I designed my newest edition of the Big Leap Bootcamp® in a way that you can flexibly decide if you want to launch your Online Course quickly or take a bit more time to do this.
I hope you're starting to realize the Big Leap Bootcamp® isn't just another program.
This is your opportunity to walk away with the same foundational elements that every entrepreneur online depends on today...
...whether it's a seasoned Information Marketer like Jeff Walker (who considers course creators to be the future of education)...
...or the Queen of Sales Conversion herself, Lisa Sasevich, who transformed her company from a shoebox to a multi-million dollar coaching business by creating products and running 1-to-many teleseminars.
The thing to remember is that no matter how large you want your business to grow, you still need the same foundation that you'll have in place after going through the Big Leap Bootcamp® program.
That holds true whether:
- You've never tried to create an online course but you can see what a game changer it can be to have an asset like that working for you 24/7/365...
- Or at some point in the past you took a stab at creating your own online course but it didn't have all the ingredients needed for success...
- Or you're currently marketing in-person workshops...but would love to deliver that value online to free up your evenings, make your schedule more flexible, broaden your market, and relieve the pressure of trying to fill face-to-face workshops.
Whatever your situation, you'll discover the foundational elements you need for success with online courses...you'll learn what I was fortunate to learn through my 20+ years of experience in business strategy, marketing, coaching and training, and most recently, program creation.
Over the years, I've been fortunate to help a large number of clients make big gains in their businesses, from cutting through the fog of strategy options out there, to knowing with certainty what to do next
......and then supporting them to actually get it done!
And I've packed everything I've learned along the way into this new program for you.
To get just a glimpse of the kind of results I'm talking about, just listen to some of my clients' experiences of working with me:
You gave me the power to know that I can do it. That was essential! Then you helped me find this concept that will make so much sense in my business. And then you handheld me and sometimes also nudged me a bit. Just a few months later, my program is ready... I am so excited.
Founder of Heartbreak 911
When I booked my session with Petra I was unclear about my ideal client and how to best market to him/her. I walked away from the session with much greater clarity around my ideal client and a few concrete ideas how to best serve them in my business. …and that feels very exciting to me! I am grateful that Petra shared her clarity and strategic creativity with me!

It is lovely to have the clarity on where my company is going. A lot of the techniques and strategies that I learned in this program have been useful for my clients as well. I have found working with Petra Mayer to be delightful. She is very helpful and has a good big picture on business strategy and a lot of great ideas that I can apply to my company.

Frequently Asked Questions
What’s included in the Big Leap Bootcamp®?
A treasure trove of everything you need to learn how to create your first online course, delivered in 4 Parts: a dedicated Facebook group and an online training portal with videos, documents and a discussion forum.
What’s not included?
Because the selection can be highly personal, the system-related expenses and third party resources you’ll need when creating and running your online course are not included (you’ll definitely learn about all those things…it's just that the cost depends on your personal needs and is therefore not included in the program).
What will I learn?
- How to go from wanting an online course, to knowing how to build it: how to define your audience, what topic is best for you, how to structure your program, how to create the material, how to offer it online
- How to create a lead magnet freebie that attracts and genuinely helps your prospects
- How to create the different types of videos important to an effective online course
- 3 launch funnel options to choose from: identify which is best for you and implement it; use your existing website system or register for LeadPages and use their easy-to-modify templates
- How to strategically structure your online course so your prospects become lifetime clients
What will my outcome be?
Get ready to enjoy a new level of clarity. Clarity when it comes to your niche and what they want. Clarity of how to evolve your existing business model to support online success. And clarity regarding how you'll generate revenue in the years to come.
And what will be the tangible results of that clarity and the work I guide you through? Your new sales funnel. Your lead-attracting freebie. Your shiny new online course. And best of all, having all the launch pieces in place so you're ready to go live and start generating income!
How can I know this is right for me?
Do you feel tired of constantly finding new clients only to serve them in a limited 1-to-1 model? Or are you exhausted at just the thought of marketing your next in-person workshop? Or, instead of sinking night after night into your business, would you rather be investing that time into what you love most? (Especially if you could still be helping and supporting your clients through your online offerings?) Or would you love to have the freedom of providing your value from anywhere in the world? Then this is for you.
And by the way, I can relate. I've felt those same frustrations and have gone through this same process myself...which is precisely why I can help.
Okay, so tell me how much time I'll have to invest?
- Implementation: Your implementation will depend on the complexity of your program, what existing content you can leverage, and if you'll outsource some of the tasks involved. That said, assuming you were building a course that was anywhere up to a 5-week self study program, you could expect to budget 10 hours per week for creating your course and funnel.
What if I don’t complete the program?
You don't have to think of this like an assignment that has to be handed in by a deadline. The simple reality is that it takes different people different amounts of time to create a course. It took me a full 3 months to create my first online course. But you need to know my specialty is helping you get through your learning curve faster than fumbling around on your own, like I did.
On that note, I'll let you in on a big secret: keep the scope for your first program manageable, which is something I'll definitely help you with during the ongoing mentorship and coaching.
