The Importance Of How You Structure Your Content
What drove me towards building my own company was seeing how much ease of use and functionality platforms like WordPress were providing so I decided to jump into the marketplace and get more people on board.

Now, when you have a course or we have content online you should have one objective for the set of content. So, if we’re using lessons, for example, your lessons should have one objective now all these lessons in the course can feed up to the course objectives which can be one the three objectives usually, but this this kind of top-down structure I’m kind of like a tree and as you storymap, storyboard I say the content out, it will become clear what those objectives are and then you know you can find ways to measure that and form your course or structure your content in that way all right.
It doesn’t have to be linear. It certainly can, I think everybody’s familiar with a linear progression path but you know we’re like going back to what I was saying, we get distracted easily, so if you can keep your content concise, we call it micro content, if you can create micro content and let people get these early small wins and check the box for for an objective, then that’s going to compound over time with all your content, otherwise it’s pretty overwhelming if you’re just kind of somebody comes into a membership siteand they see everything there and they don’t know where to go to begin, or at least to start.
So, what I’ve seen be quite successful, actually and we used to do this one where I used to do this while setting up courses and I’ve seen it in people that are using learn dashes though start with a linear progression. In the beginning, it’s kind of the reading process and then open it up and let people choose what they want to learn as they kind of get more familiar with the basics and have a solid foundation it’s important to create that foundation across all the learners all the members of the membership site so, everybody’s on the same page.
