1. ALWAYS DO THIS FIRST — GET CLEAR ABOUT YOUR WHY

2. DO YOUR RESEARCH

  • Do some background research and checks on the course itself i.e. the instructors/facilitators and the institution or organisation, and their credibility. You can do this quickly with an online search. Check out their social media platforms and content, and also look at comments or reviews, not just on learning platforms, but on the web in general.
  • Understand the context of what is being offered, and revisit your personal/business goals again. How will taking this course or programme support your goals? Will this help you increase your revenue, or expand your business network? Be clear on the value add — clarity is everything.
  • Think about the method of delivery — are you better at self-paced learning, or do you like small group coaching sessions? Are you interested in webinars, or interactive learning sessions? Take some time to know which appeals better to you.

3. CONSIDER LONG-TERM BENEFITS FROM WHAT YOU’RE SIGNING UP FOR

IN A NUTSHELL

It is wise to remember that the digital world is evolving rapidly. While many try to convert their businesses into virtual platforms, it is important for consumers and potential customers to stop, think, research, and then act, instead of impulsively clicking that ‘Sign Up Now!’ button.
