The Step-by-step Process Used To Create, Launch, & Sell
100+ Successful Online Courses From Scratch!

A Profitable Time To Be An Online “Creator”

Right now is one of the most profitable times we've seen to be a "creator"

People are building six and seven-figure businesses seemingly out of thin air by simply turning their unique knowledge into valuable online courses.

And some aren’t even sharing their own knowledge! They’re following the “Foundr playbook” and partnering with other world-class experts and having them teach their courses just like we do!

But right now if you want to get on the fastest path there is to building wealth online, you have to make a simple decision...

You must decide to create, not just consume.

Because all kinds of creators in every industry imaginable -- from influencers, bloggers, coaches, consultants, and even existing business owners…

Are all tapping into this massively profitable online educational movement by selling online courses.

Imagine getting paid just to be yourself?

Imagine how energizing it feels when your work is your passion?

Imagine waking up to emails from happy customers whose lives were changed simply because of the content you put out?

All from sharing your unique skills, knowledge, and impactful message with the world...

By turning your passion for learning, teaching, and serving others into a wildly profitable online course business...

While building a location independent income, allowing you to never have to worry about financial freedom or “job security” ever again!

How “Going Remote” Ignited A Billion-dollar Boom In Online Education...

And right now we’re currently in the middle of the most historic boom the online education space has ever seen.

Because as you know, the entire world was forced to dramatically change and create “new normals”.

Progress that was supposed to take years, was advanced in just months.

Schools, universities, and even some of the biggest employers in the world are now going completely online.

We’re learning remotely...
Working remotely...
Buying remotely...

And most importantly, more course creators than ever before are making money remotely.

In fact, a recent study predicts that due to recent global events the online education market will nearly double to $438 billion in the next few years alone!

Your Chance to Become a Course Creator

Nathan Chan, CEO of Foundr Magazine

So if you have special skills or a unique message and you want to turn it into a 2nd income stream but you’re not sure where to start...

Or you already have an audience or an existing service-based business and you’re searching for new ways to add even more value to your community… creating new products and turning your knowledge or expertise into a valuable online course...

Or even if you’re simply wanting to start an online business but don’t know what next step to take...

...there’s never been a better time for you than right now!

And while others waste time and money guessing on how to create, market, and sell their course…

Our new Rapid Course Formula gives you an in-depth roadmap that’s been perfected while creating more than 100 different courses and building an 8-figure company from scratch!

It’s a true behind-the-scenes look at how we create 7-figure courses from scratch.

But first let’s explore...

6 reasons why

People Are Succeeding With Online Courses


Low Cost

Packaging up your knowledge, skills, or unique message is one of the lowest cost ways to start a new online business.

You don’t need to spend money on an office or hiring employees, and there’s no inventory or even logistics to worry about.

Your course is delivered digitally at the click of a button from anywhere in the world!


No Expertise Required &
Beginner Friendly

You don’t need any expertise to start, and with all the easy-to-use technology now available, it’s about as “beginner friendly” as it gets.

And if you’re thinking you don’t have some special unique knowledge or skill set but you still like the business model of selling online courses…

Just simply do what we do here at Foundr and partner with world-class experts to teach your courses! We show you exactly how we do it inside The Rapid Course Formula.


Quick & Easy Production

Did you know that many six-figure courses have been produced in just a few weeks using nothing more than a laptop and smartphone?

Seriously, you’re already carrying a viable film studio around in your pocket.

Creators are getting paid thousands to create content they record straight from their phone teaching on things they’re passionate about. Talk about a dream business.


High Profit & Price Flexibility

In business, profit margins matter...a lot!

Since online courses cost almost nothing to create and don’t need to be shipped or stored in some expensive warehouse or office, these products have the highest profit margin of nearly anything you could possibly sell.

Plus they’re incredibly price flexible. They can be sold from $7 to $7,000 and everything in between.

One of the biggest lessons we’ve learned at Foundr -- after having 100,000+ paying customers and producing 100+ successful online courses… that success is rarely about “being cheap”. Instead people want their problems solved and they’re willing to pay for results.


Evergreen & Highly Scalable

One of the most powerful aspects of online courses is that the content can be made “evergreen” and is highly scalable.

Meaning you can create it once and without changing a thing, sell it for years to come to an almost unlimited audience!

That’s why we always say “create it once and you can leverage it again and again”.

And it’s how you can finally stop trading time for money. You can make “doctor money” without the doctor hours, headaches, and mountains of debt.


Perfect Side-hustle Or First Online Business

Starting a new business is really all about risk reduction.

How can you stack the deck in your favor and “test” your idea in such a way as to minimize any potential losses.

That’s why so many first time entrepreneurs find first time success in selling online courses. The products are quick and easy to create, plus it doesn’t require time while they’re at work.

And it doesn’t require them to be “all or nothing” having to bet the farm that it’ll work.

The Fastest Way For You To Create Your Own
Online Course

Today anyone can create their own profitable online course from scratch.

From the comfort of your home you can create a valuable course one time, and have it make money for you month after month without ever having to worry about logistics, supply chain, or expensive overhead.

And the fastest way to create your first course…

Is to simply follow a proven step-by-step course creation roadmap.

Proven Shortcuts Learned From Creating 100+ Online Courses

We know because our team has done it 100+ times!

We’ve taken everything we’ve learned...boiling down every single actionable insight, tool, and idea worth sharing into the most in-depth online course training ever made available!

The Rapid Course Formula is a behind-the-scenes look at how we create 7-figure courses from scratch.

Plus we’re even revealing how we partner with other experts to teach our courses!

So you truly don’t even need to be an expert yourself. You can partner with others like we do.

Foundr’s Strict “No Guru” Policy

Here at Foundr we want to create the most comprehensive, easy to follow online education platform for entrepreneurs wanting to start or grow a business.

We teach our community to create all kinds of online businesses from freelancing and consulting, to ecommerce, SaaS, copywriting, and everything in between.

And one of the businesses people most want to learn right now is how to create an online course business.

But just be 100% transparent with you…

We've been super hesitant to do this.

Mainly because we know it's hard to trust a person “aka a guru” who’s literally made all their money selling courses instead of actually building any real businesses.

We certainly don’t trust them.

And it’s actually why here at Foundr we have a strict “No Guru” policy.

We only work with proven practitioners, real entrepreneurs who have actually built the exact business they’re teaching you about in our courses.

It Was Time To Share Our
Rapid Course Formula With You

However even with our hesitation, we feel like it’s gotten to the point where we have no choice but to do something...

With so much rubbish, hype, and flat out lying in the marketplace…

Plus constantly having our community asking us for a training like this…

We knew it was time we produced something that would shake up the entire industry.

So we invested more than $50,000 and close to a thousand hours building and producing this course to ensure it produces results for you.

All built on a proven process with zero theory.

But mainly we built it because here at Foundr we’re on a mission to bring proven entrepreneurial education to the masses.

We’ve already helped tens of thousands of students successfully turn their business ideas into reality…

And want you to have all the tools and resources so you can be next!

Because right now the opportunity in the online education industry and creator space is one of the biggest opportunities available.

It’s booming unlike anything we’ve ever seen!

Think of it...

When you add up all the normal upfront costs required to start other businesses…

Leasing office space, paying for inventory, hiring employees…

You could easily be six-figures in debt before you ever even started.

And then you’d still have to deal with razor thin margins!

Yet with an online course business, one which you can start with just a smartphone, a laptop, and your unique knowledge…

You can be profitable from day one with literally no costly overhead!

Now, a lot of people have asked us if we do consulting and whether we could take them on as clients and help grow their online course business.

With full transparency, while we’re extremely humbled by these kinds of requests, this is not something that Foundr does because we’re a magazine and media company.

But if we did charge for consulting we could easily charge thousands of dollars per month.

However the next best way which we can serve you is by offering you exact in-depth knowledge in this class…

And help you realize now more than ever, just how possible it is to start your online course business.

So we’ve brought together the entire team on this course to share the behind-the-scenes of how
you too can create a 7-figure course from scratch.

And right now you can get instant access to every for just $1.36 a day!

That’s less than the cost of a single Starbucks.

Also when you invest in yourself today, we’re investing in you as well. That’s why your entire purchase is covered by our 365-day money back guarantee! So there’s nothing to lose.

The Cost Of

Where will you be 30, 60, or 90 days from now?

By following the blueprint laid out for you inside Rapid Course Formula, you could have your online course created and already have sales rolling in! Will it take some hard work and dedicated focus? Of course it will. Run from anyone who tells you otherwise.

But aren’t a few months of work worth the ability to have a location independent income? One that provides the passion, financial security, and peace of mind that many people only wish of.

That’s what’s waiting for you. That’s what’s on the other side of this program.

And instead of wasting time, money, and energy trying to figure out the most effective way to do this all on your own with no guarantee of success...

You could simply invest in the Rapid Course Formula, and for barely $1.36 a day, get access to the exact process that’s launched more than 100 successful online courses and helped build an 8-figure business from scratch!

Plus Rapid Course Formula qualifies as a tax-deductible expense under the continuous education category, so you can write it off come tax time.

  1. There are so many online courses out there, is there even room for a new one?

    Remember when creating a new online course, different is better than better. Your goal is to create something unique and different that solves a pain point for a specific person.

    Plus with the historic boom going on in the online education space right now -- set to nearly double to $438 billion in the next few years -- there is more than enough room for new creators. Especially when you follow the roadmap inside Rapid Course Formula

  2. What if I don’t have an audience or email list?

    That’s exactly how we started here at Foundr. Module 3 is dedicated to teaching you exactly what to do. But the better news? It takes a much smaller audience than you may be thinking you need in order to create a six or even seven figure business!

  3. What if I’m just starting out and have no idea what course I want to create?

    Then you’re in the right place! Nathan is going to show you how to not only find passions, skills, and unique knowledge worth turning into a course...but he’s also going to show you how to get paid before you even produce it!

  4. Why should I start an online course business instead of others?

    Obviously it’s whatever business model best suits you. But the 6 reasons we listed above are some of the most compelling. An online course business is low cost, beginner friendly, has high profit margin and price flexibility, is quick and easy to produce, is evergreen and highly scalable, and is one of the best side-hustles or first-time businesses there is!

  5. How do I know if this will work for my industry?

    Online courses are being successfully sold in every industry you can imagine. From more traditional niches like marketing and fitness, to more unique interests like online gaming, dog training, and teaching musical instruments.

    If there’s been a book published about it, there’s an opportunity to create a course about it.

  6. Am I qualified to teach?

    Often times people get stuck thinking they need to be the best in the world at something before they teach it. If that were true, many six and seven figure course entrepreneurs wouldn’t be in business. From our experience, in order to be an “expert”, you just need to know a little bit more than the person you’re teaching. If you can help someone get a result, they could care less about your resume!

  7. Do I need to quit my job to do this full time?

    No, you don’t need to leave your job. In fact, we highly suggest you don’t until you get enough income from your online course so you can make the switch smoothly without putting your family and lifestyle at risk. You can get started with as little as 1 hour a week, and scale up from there as you build confidence. Note: Nate worked full time when he was launching Foundr. You can, too. There’s no need to take unnecessary risks.

  8. Do I need a lot of investments to get started?

    The beauty of starting an online course business is you don’t need heavy investments. Imagine starting a cafe or manufacturing plant, your upfront investment is hefty and there’s no guarantee that you’ll be making your money back. We’re a big fan of starting with as little investments as possible, test it out and if it works, scale it. In the course, we’ll teach you exactly how to do so, without crazy investments on your end. In fact, we’ll even give you 3-month free teachable access, tools & templates (Foundr launch vault) to help you get started.

  9. What else do I need to get started?

    Nothing much! Just purchase the course, carve out some time to go through it and off you go.

  10. I’ve tried other courses. What makes yours better / different?

    While there are plenty of “gurus” who have created a course one time and now teach people how to do it...that’s not what this is. Rapid Course Formula is the step-by-step process we’ve used to create 100+ successful courses and create an 8-figure company from scratch!

    This is behind the scenes look at exactly what we do to create 7-figure courses.

  11. If Foundr is so successful at creating online courses, why not keep the formula to yourself?

    Because we’re not in the business of just selling online courses like many are. First and foremost we’re a media and education company. At Foundr we want to build the largest entrepreneurial educational platform teaching people how to start any kind of online business. Plus our community wants to know how to do this so we finally decided to show our process.

  12. How much can I sell my courses for?

    At Foundr we normally sell courses between $200-$2,000. But we’ve seen wildly successful online courses priced anywhere from $7 all the way up to $7,000! So it’s totally up to you and the value you put into your offer.

  13. Will this work in other languages besides English?

    Yes 100%. At Foundr we have more 100,000+ customers from all over the world. If your prospects don’t speak English as their main language, that’s no problem whatsoever. An online course business works no matter the language spoken!

  14. What if I need extra support beyond the course?

    We understand accountability, encouragement, guidance and validation are all part of the “secret sauce” that help you follow through on the course. So as soon as you register, you’ll be given bonus access to a special closed-door Facebook group where you’ll find your tribe who can help you along the journey from where you are now to building a profitable online course. This collaboration is priceless.

  15. Why is it worth the investments?

    There are no investments that provide a return as fast or as large as starting your own business. Think of it. For only $497 you get the exact playbook that’s helped the Foundr team create 100+ successful online courses and build Foundr into a 8-figure business! Even if you just sold four $500 courses this program would pay for itself! Plus it’s all backed by our 365-day money back guarantee.

  16. Is there a payment plan available for RCF?

    For this special launch, yes there is!

  17. How does your refund policy work?

    We’re so confident you’ll love the way this program shows you exactly how to start your online course business (even if you’ve got limited time), with real action plans and step-by-step detail, that we offer a 365-day money-back satisfaction guarantee. We’ll promptly refund every cent if you complete the course within 365 days of purchase, complete the action items and you still don’t see any results. For full details of our refund policy, please read the section “Refund Policy – Rapid Course Formula” in the Terms & Conditions page.
