Avoid These 4 Common Traps While Building Your Target Audience

Have you ever felt like you’re waiting for the perfect moment or certain number to start connecting with others in your online course journey?


Maybe you’ve hesitated to reach out to potential clients or your email list, thinking you need a certain number of followers or subscribers first. Let’s talk about four traps that could be holding you back from building that all-important know, like, and trust factor, and how to avoid them.

Keep the Conversation Going

Picture this: you’re hosting a party at your house, and the first guest arrives. Do you wait for the rest of the guests before welcoming them in?


Of course not! The same goes for your online presence. When someone comments on your social media post, don’t let it sit there unanswered. Reach out, create conversations, and start building those connections from the get-go. It’s all about creating engagement and showing that you genuinely care about the people showing interest in what you have to offer.

You’ve Got Mail: Email List is a HUGE Business Assets

Creating an email list is an exciting step in your course creator journey. But what’s the point of having a list if you never actually email them?


Don’t fall into the trap of waiting for a large number of subscribers before reaching out. Your subscribers are eager to hear from you, regardless of the list’s size. Start sending out emails regularly, sharing valuable content, and building that essential know, like, and trust factor. Remember, consistency and authenticity are key.

Finding Your Platform and Pace to Build Your Online Business

Are you feeling the pressure to be everywhere at once, from Instagram to Facebook to TikTok? Slow down! It’s essential to consider where your ideal clients are and where you genuinely enjoy being.


Avoid the trap of spreading yourself too thin across multiple platforms, only to realize you can’t keep up with all of them. Find the platform that feels right for you, where you can engage consistently and meaningfully with your audience.

Lead with Introductions to create Authentic Connections

Imagine sending out a lead magnet to your subscribers without ever introducing yourself. It’s like inviting someone into your home without saying hello! A welcome sequence is crucial for new subscribers.


Use this opportunity to introduce yourself, share what you do, and emphasize how you can help them. This not only sets the tone for your relationship but also reinforces the value you offer.

Don’t Get Overwhelmed… Breathe and Keep Moving Forward!

Finding your way through the world of online courses can be overwhelming, but you don’t have to navigate it alone. If you’re struggling with any of these traps, or if you’re ready to take your course creator journey to the next level, I’m here to help. Whether it’s a one-on-one strategy session or a series of coaching sessions, together, we can work on setting up systems and developing engagement strategies that align with your goals.

I hope these insights help you avoid some common pitfalls in your online course journey. Building those genuine, lasting connections is a process, but it’s a journey worth taking. Remember, it’s not about having thousands of followers—it’s about engaging meaningfully with the people who are already interested in what you have to offer.

Meet Your Course Creation Coach

Hey Friend, I'm Robbin!

I've been an educator for decades.

After dedicating two decades to public education, supporting students and their families, I had this feeling that God was nudging me to pivot and focus on the mommas of these children. He wanted me to help them remove the roadblocks hindering them from chasing their dreams and His plans for them as an online entrepreneur.

After countless prayers and embracing the direction He pointed me toward, I made the bold decision to leave my 9-to-5 career and step into the world of entrepreneurship and course creation.

God opened door after door for me to learn the intricacies of technology, to study & practice effective strategies, and to provide unwavering support to course creators & online business women. A business that allows me to empower course creators to share their God-given skills and talents to students eagerly seeking their expertise.

The business God helped me build allows me to step away from the laptop, be present & available for my family and friends, take care of my health, create my own schedule, and make Kingdom impact.


My passion is to show you how to do the same!
