Who are you and what course have you created?
My name is Angela Marie Christian and my course is called Manifestation Mastery. It’s a blend of DIY and live coaching. Here’s a link to the sales page.
What market does your online course serve?
My online course serves mostly women, but truly, anyone who is ready to transform their lives, their way of thinking, and begin living the life of their dreams. Anyone who is feeling ready to heal the subconscious patterns and beliefs holding them back from getting aligned with abundance.
What’s the biggest benefit of taking your course?
My course is truly transformational. I walk my students through various exercises to get very clear on their goals and help them zoom in and focus by retraining their brain (RAS – reticular activating system) to work for them. I then help them break subconscious patterns and beliefs that aren’t serving them and get them aligned with the energy of abundance. They’ll walk away from the course completely transformed and with a daily manifestation practice in place that brings about consistent results.
How did you get into the market?
I’ve always been a master manifestor and wanted to share my techniques with other women. I’ve manifested everything from a trip to Monaco, meeting Liam Hemsworth, thousands of dollars, my husband, my son, opportunities, and more.
Why did you decide to create an online course in the first place?
Because it’s a great option for those who can’t afford to work with me on a 1:1 basis. I offer Manifestation Life Coaching for those who are serious about changing their life very quickly, however, it’s at a higher price point than the course. I wanted to offer something for anyone to benefit from. I offer a very flexible monthly payment plan to ensure those less fortunate can take it, as well.
Did you have any moments of doubt before you created/launched it?
I struggled with not including so much information that they’d be overwhelmed. I have a ton of information and it was hard for me to break it down into teachable moments, but I succeeded! It was a lot of work to put the course together and I now offer a live component of the course, so it’s a time commitment for sure.
If so what made you turn it around and do it anyway?
I knew I had to get this work out in the public as there’s way too much misinformation about manifestation. My techniques are 95% science-backed with some spirituality thrown in there. I don’t believe in handing over the power to an outside person or to the Universe when the power is within the individual. There are so many people who have been taught by books like The Secret, which are inspiring, but fluffy and not factual. I teach a technique that works whereas The Secret only had a 6% success rate.
What’s your online course like?
My course has videos with slides and workbooks. The videos are PowerPoint and with me talking. I also have weekly live calls on Zoom.
How long did it take you to create your course?
It took me a lot longer than I expected as once I got in, I realized I needed to include factors such as: how to change your energy. This meant I needed to teach the basics of chakras for people to understand what I meant by “energy.” I’m trained in shamanic practices and wanted people to understand how powerful they are when it comes to energy. This slowed down the creation of my course because I had to make sure I did this the right way and at a level anyone could understand.
Tell us a little about the process of launching your course and getting your first sale(s).I used webinars to help launch my course and it was very exciting when I got my first sale! It was someone I didn’t know and at that point, I realized this is truly going to change people’s lives. - Angela Marie Christian Click To Tweet
Do you have a lead magnet?
Yes, I have several. I have a free manifestation meditation series for people to help them find and grow their divine spark of light within. I also have a 5-day free workshop that I’ll be putting on 4/4 – 4/8 as I relaunch my course.
What’s the traffic strategy that works best for you?
I would say the best strategy is the people in my Facebook group. I’ll be teaching the workshop there, so with almost 200 people, it’s a large crowd to try and sell to.

I’m using Kajabi & SamCart.

Do you like it?
Are there any features you wish it had?
I wish they were easier to use and less expensive.
What made you decide to use your chosen platform over others?
I was taking Amy Porterfield’s Digital Course Academy and she gave us 30 days free with Kajabi, which is what she used. Then for SamCart, I watched a great webinar that inspired me to buy it.
What other tools do you use to run your online course business?
I use FloDesk for emails, ConvertKit for landing pages, Calendly for scheduling, Iris for my podcast, Audacity for podcast editing, and Canva for creating my lead magnets.
What books or training programs have you found useful on your journey to a successful business owner that others might find valuable too?
I found the book Launch to be great (Jeff Walker) and Brendon Burchard’s course called Experts Academy. I also loved Amy Porterfield’s course called Digital Course Academy. Other books: Jen Sincero’s You’re a Badass at Making Money and Louise Hay’s book You Can Heal Your Life
Do you have any big mistakes you’ve made along the way that you’d be willing to share?
Yes, I wish I wouldn’t have jumped into Kajabi without knowing how expensive it was and how NOT user-friendly it is. It took me over 30 days to figure out how to create my website and it’s still not where I’d like it. I’m only still with them because they keep giving me good deals to stay. I wish I had known I could’ve just launched my course as simple as possible, it didn’t need to be fancy.
Please share some idea of revenue.
My monthly sales are around $2000.
Please tell us a little about what the money you’ve earned from your course has done for you.
It has helped me cut back to working part-time at my job to be able to focus on making this my full-time career.
In addition to revenue are there any numbers you would like to share?
I’ve been adding a new Instagram follower every day by creating Reels and live videos. This helped me grow my Instagram followers by about 100 in 30 days.
What has creating your course done for you personally?
It has made me feel amazing for helping others transform their lives the way that I did!! I also love that I can offer this course to people who can’t afford my 1:1 manifestation coaching program.
Do you have a story of a transformation from any of your clients?
Yes, I loved that a woman who took my course became very clear on her goals and realized some of her goals weren’t even from her, they were old thoughts from her mother (I go through a clarity exercise that shines a light on this to ensure goals are “pure” meaning, from them). I was also able to help a woman get her business launched as my course gave her the confidence she needed.
What advice do you have for people just starting out?My advice for others starting out: keep it simple! It doesn’t need to be fancy. - Angela Marie Christian Click To Tweet
Some of the best course creators just share PDFs in Dropbox and then have weekly zoom calls. It does NOT have to be expensive or extensive to launch your course. The important thing is: just doing it.
