Today we’re joined by our first guest of season 3 of the Make Lemonade Podcast, Aaron Francis. You might be know Aaron as an Educator at Planet Scale, but you would have seen him all around the internet doing courses, YouTube videos, podcasts and more.

In this episode we discuss the creation and launch of Screencasting.com, a course Aaron made teaching you how to make better screencasts. We go into detail on how to structure the course, marketing, pricing and what Aaron plans to do in the future. Oh, and we discuss JR and Aaron’s priciest domains.
