    Wondering if licensing your content is the right move?
    In this episode, we're talking about the crucial considerations for coaches, consultants, and subject matter experts looking to license their content. If you’ve been selling your genius directly to your clients and are now thinking of scaling your business by allowing other coaches or consultants to distribute your content, this podcast is for you.

    What can you expect from this episode?

This is about maintaining the integrity of your brand and ensuring it’s presented in a way that aligns with your values. Finally, we go over pricing strategies, making sure you set fair guidelines for how others can price your licensed content. You’ll walk away with a clear understanding of these critical factors, empowering you to confidently navigate the licensing landscape.
     
    End Results:
    Understand if continuing to sell your content directly is the right move for you. Set effective marketing rules to protect your brand. Determine the best pricing strategies for your licensed content. Know how to turn competition into clients by leveraging your IP.

This episode is tailor-made for coaches, consultants, and other subject matter experts who possess content that's just waiting to be shared with a wider audience. We're going to clarify what content is licensable, how companies are hungry for it, and why knowing this is critical for taking your business operations to new levels of growth and efficiency. If your content is collecting dust, listen up – this is not the show for you if you're not yet clear on what content licensing is. I suggest first catching up on our previous episode about the basics of content licensing before diving into this one.

From leveraging distribution channels with compact pieces like articles and videos, to enhancing other programs with your trainings or workshops, and even offering complete processes that other companies can use independently. I even share a personal story about how I repurposed my own courses, and how that could be a game changer for you, too. We break down these strategies into real-world applications to help you visualize the incredible potential of licensing the valuable content you already have.
     
    End Results:
    Recognize short, impactful content that can be used to fill a company's distribution channels. Identify how your smaller training modules can augment existing programs to create added value.
