Client Ascension Model TM

Basically, our insecurity about people getting a student outcome, we want to dump them with more and more stuff. Bad idea. They didn’t need more; they need a client pathway that’s gonna get them a result. So that’s one of the big things we do, is we actually strip away a lot of stuff that’s not important. They want to focus on one problem, one solution, check. I’ll buy the next solution. One problem, one solution, check. That’s how people learn, and that’s how people evolve. So, whatever you’re teaching, we want them to have student outcomes and be the best version of themselves, whether it’s personal development, health, wealth, business, doesn’t matter. So, we need to understand these core concepts. So, here’s the learner and this is the ascension model for the e-learning platform. Specialist, certified, coach. Entry level course, advanced course, mastery. It’s like the equivalent of walking in to, say, Wal-Mart and all the information there versus Ikea, a very narrow pathway.

We help people take their monthly continuity and structure it in a way where there’s monthly badges, there’s skill milestones based on what they can accomplish on a narrow pathway. The black belt system really didn’t exist in China because they said, “Hey, it’s gonna take you a decade to become a karate master.” When other cultures started practicing, they deconstructed their black belt system with recognition at the end of each level.

You’ve heard of the black belt system in martial arts. The Client Ascension Model™ is exactly like that. Instead of one program which takes ten years to master, the black belt system broke it all down into steps. The Client Ascension Model™ does the same thing for your business.

At Client Engagement Academy, we look at your content and use Client Ascension Model to break down your courses the best way possible. If it should be 2, 3, 6, 9 and how to price them for max profitability and student outcome.

Apply These Motivational Design Principles to Every Online Course

Let me ask you a question: “Are you a finisher or a quitter? Now be honest here. Think back through your life at all the things you’ve started. Maybe you started college or piano lessons or a diet or an online course. Did you finish? You might be surprised to learn that few people finish what they start. It’s not that they’re bad people or that they don’t have compelling goals. It’s just that somewhere along the way they lose motivation. There’s not enough perceived “reward” to keep them going. At one point or another, every educator, coach, expert, speaker, or thought-leader has struggled with course creation that results in unsuccessful outcomes for learners. The course content may have covered the topic comprehensively; the syllabus probably included a variety of materials and sources, so why didn’t students finish the course they were initially so excited to start?

So, you’ve got a lot invested in the online courses you’re offering … not only the money you’ve put into them but plenty of effort and enthusiasm. You had high hopes and great expectations, but lately … maybe not so much. You’re simply not seeing the results you anticipated.

Use Brain Science to Improve Your Online Courses

I’ve seen more entrepreneurs jumping on the online course bandwagon lately. And, time and time again, most of them make the same mistake. They figure creating an extraordinary course comes down to a mix of business savvy and subject matter expertise. As they have plenty of both, they jump right into course creation without even considering the impact that neuroscience and human psychology have on client retention. Because of this, they often have nothing to show for their hard work but unhappy clients, low completion rates, and reduced profit margins. Luckily, you don’t need to be a doctor in neuroscience to set your students (and business) up for success. You just need to take advantage of the following learning science principles.
