Online Business – Part 6 – Scaling Your Business

Online vs Offline

When it comes to scaling your business, you should not just think about Online but also Offline sales.

The key here is to try to broaden your audience for your product and services by repurposing the marketing and lead generation strategies on other platforms, market places and in “offline” environments, such as conferences and seminars.

When constructing your product/service offering “Pyramid” ensure that you have a range of offerings at different prices but at the same time, make sure that as you prices increase, you are offering increasing access to your most valuable asset, your own personal time.

By looking at your business as a range of product offerings which are passive, semi-passive and hands on, you can easily construct a range of products and services to address your target market of customers.

Online Market Places

This is the market leading B2C market place for online courses and a great place to start.  The team at Udemy are really proactive at making sure that your courses are of sufficient quality and giving you advice on how to improve your courses as you go.

The latest price changes on 22nd August appear (at least initially) to have reversed the decline in sales following the 4th April pricing policies which are now seen to have been a retrograde step.


This increasingly popular courses market place operates on a subscription basis and tends to offer shorter courses which include a class project.  When designing your courses, it is useful to consider a Skillshare Course as possibly a section of one of your long Udemy courses and by including an “Activity” or Project your course material can be freely transposed to both platforms

Key Tip: NEVER ever mention (as I have done in some of my earlier courses) the names of any of the course platforms which means you are always free to publish them on new platforms when the opportunity arises.

This is a new market place which is owned by the Economist and, for that reason, I believe it has real potential.  It is always a smart move if you can identify a future market leader and get your courses on to the platform and establish your student body there at an early stage.  This is the case, in my view, with

Amazon Video Direct

Anything that Amazon decides to do should be taken very seriously.  Its decision to move into distribution of user generated video content, both courses and films, will in time be seen as an important step in the evolution of the Online Courses industry.

So far, progress has been slow and Amazon insists (at the moment) on the inclusion of “close captions” or subtitles.  While these are technically easy to include, creating the CC file is tricky, particularly ensuring that the captions are accurate.


One of the major drawbacks of online market places, is that you are not in control.  When they make changes, these may not suit you and indeed, can adversely affect your online courses business.

The solution is to host your courses on a Course Platform where you pay a monthly fee in return for the course video hosting as well as continually improving functionality.  The two platforms (and there are many) that I use are Thinkific and Teachable.

I use both by the way because I keep my low and mid priced courses separate from my premium course content.  Premium on Thinkific and Mid/Low on Teachable.  You could do this the other way around too or not at all.

Thinkific – this link will take you to the main Thinkific site.

Teachable – follow this link to the main Teachable Website.

Media Repurposing Strategy

Repurposing is one of the most important strategies in developing your online business.

Think how you can reuse content in different forms and in different places.

Take this blog series for instance.

I could reuse this by:

  • Turning it into an ebook
  • Recording it as a short audio book
  • Creating a series of training videos which in turn
    • Could be offered as a lead magnet
    • Could be published as a course on Skillshare
    • Could be included as an update to to an existing Udemy or Teachable Course
  • Publish the videos on Youtube to drive traffic to my site
  • Include the videos or one of them on my Facebook page or Linkedin Pulse.

Consider how you can use different media types to repurpose your existing content.

  • Video – Youtube
  • Audio – Podcasts
  • Text – Kindle Books
  • Presentations – Skillshare

The Product Pyramid

I have mentioned the Product Pyramid above but it is worth spending a little time explaining what this is all about.

You should have different pricing tiers for your products:

  • Free
  • Low
  • Mid
  • High
  • Elite/Premium

When you are building a relationship with a potential customer, it is most unlikely that you will see them your premium or high priced products first.  Instead, you need to build the relationship and the trust by bring them through your free and low priced products first.

Price vs Accessibility

There is another axis on the Product Pyramid to consider that I have also already aluded to.  This is the axis that reflects Price to Access to you.  The lower the price, the more passive the income for you and the lower the level of client access to you.

Your time is your most valuable asset and personal one on one time should be regarded as the most valuable product/service you can provide. Its important to ensure this is the case.

If you do not do this you can find your time being completely filled by very low priced products and services which will consequently reduce your income and profitability.



An online business should only be part of your business strategy and once its established you should turn your attention to how you can leverage your content and expertise to the offline world.

Delivering presentations and speeches or teaching seminars are the two options which are most easy to exploit.  Develop your network of contacts and find people who are running events that you can contribute to.  Expect to start doing these for free until you develop your expertise and reputation in this area.

  • Events
  • Seminars
  • Conferences


Offering 1:1 products and services should be at the very peak of your Product Service Pyramid.  Consider how you can provide value to your community by offering direct access to you.  They benefit from sharing from your knowledge and expertise and you can benefit from the premium you can charge for direct access to you.

Online Business – Six Steps to Starting Your First Online Business – Part 5

Online Business – Part 5 – Lead Generation

Lead Generation is the the process of capturing a potential customer and turning them into a customer.  This is the core of the sales process and involves a Six Step Process

  • Find Me
  • Know Me
  • Like Me
  • Trust Me
  • Buy From Me
  • Evangelise Me

It is commonly accepted that you need to make contact with your prospect six or seven times before they will buy from you.  This is the process through which they come to know, like and trust you, before which they will not buy from you.

How Has Lead Generation Changed?

The old days of broadcast advertising have been replaced by 1:1 pull marketing where you build the relationship with your prospect on a personal basis using online marketing strategies.

The good news is that nearly everything you do online is measurable using analytical tools like Google Analytics so you can quickly work out what is working and what is not.

Abundance and Attention

Instead of a scarcity of information about a product or a service, the norm is now an abundance of information.  Correspondingly, your marketing needs to cut through the mass of content competing for your prospects attention.

The most valuable thing your prospect can give you is their time and attention so you had better respect it and use it well when it is granted.  Buyers no longer want to be sold to.  They want to be informed and entertained and only then will they consider putting their hand in their pocket and pulling out their credit card.

Today prospective customers can do their own research and if they are looking for your product or service, they can quickly assess it against your competition by just spending a few minutes in Google.  In many cases, the majority of buyers are well advanced in the buying process before they contact the vendor.

The Online Business Sales Funnel

At the top of the Funnel, your job is to enable your prospect to find you.  You do this by creating content and by having an extensive (and consistent) digital presence.

The heart of this should be your website but you should also be present on the major social media platforms and other places where you know your customers like to be online.

It is likely when they first find you, your prospect will not be ready to buy from you.  This is where the information you provide them and the interaction you have with them builds the Know, Like and Trust.  Timing is everything.

How Can You Generate Leads?

Here are some of the activities (online and offline) you can employ to generate leads for your business.

  • Website Optimisation
  • Social Media Engagement
  • Search Engine Optimisation
  • Content Marketing
  • Email Marketing
  • Mobile Marketing
  • Paid Search (PPC)
  • Webinars
  • Direct Mail
  • Trade Shows
  • Print Advertising


Effective Lead Generation Strategies

Your Lead Generation should be a constantly evolving process.  The biggest challenge is to generate good QUALITY leads.  The challenges you need to consider, according to a recent study by IDG,  include:

  • Generating high quality leads
  • Converting your leads into customers
  • Creating meaningful content
  • Demonstrating a return on your marketing investment
  • Sourcing high quality data/lists for leads
  • Generating leads across different types of media
  • Marketing into a lengthening sales cycle
  • Generating Public Relations and Media awareness
  • Communicating product value
  • Keeping up with changes in the market place.

The same IDG study identified several barriers to lead generation success.  These include:

  • Lack of resources in staffing, budgeting or time
  • Lack of high quality data/lists to drive campaigns
  • Lack of budget
  • Lack of ability to generate content
  • Lack of time and band width
  • Lack of sufficient insight into target audience
  • Lack of alignment between sales and marketing
  • Lack of ability to stop executing and think strategically
  • Lack of of reliable data to drive decisions
  • The economic climate
  • Lack of a clear value proposition
  • Lack of insight into competitive research
  • Lack of strategic direction

So What are the Most Effective Lead Generation Tactics

IDG identified that the following were the most effective Lead Generation Tactics

  • Company Website
  • Conferences/Tradeshows
  • Email Marketing
  • Search Engine Optimisation
  • Telemarketing
  • Virtual Events and Webinars

At the bottom end of the effectiveness scale came:

  • Public Relations
  • Paid Search
  • Social Media
  • Online Advertising
  • Direct Mail
  • Print Advertising

Inbound Marketing

Marketo define Inbound Marketing as”the process of helping potential customers find your company – often before they are even looking to make a purchase – and then turning that early awareness into brand preference and ultimately into leads and revenue”

To do that you need to create content which is interesting, informative and entertaining.  And you also need to ensure that you are distributing that content in the right places online where your prospective customers can find it.

The Four Pillars of Inbound Marketing are:

  • Content Marketing
  • Search Engine Optimisation
  • Your own Website and Blog
  • Social Media Marketing and Engagement

Outbound Marketing

As its name suggests, Outbound Marketing is where you send a message out to your prospective audience either by email or through purchasing online and offline advertisements to bring your products and services to their attention.  This can be done by using any or all of the strategies below:

  • Email marketing
  • Display ads
  • Pay per Click Ads
  • Content Syndication
  • Direct Mail
  • Events
  • Sales Representatives

Online Business – Six Steps to Starting Your First Online Business – Part 4

Online Business Part 4 – Marketing

Whether or not you have an online presence, your ability to market your course or product is a vital part of your sales plan.

There are a number of considerations to consider first.

Will you be posting your course/product on third party market places? These include Udemy, Skillshare,, eBay, Amazon Video Direct etc.

If you do then meeting the requirements for each platform will need to be part of your plan and should be considered in detail in the production phase.  It is much easier to upload your course to several platforms at a time when you create it than it is to do this after the event.

However, do not assume that Udemy or Skillshare will do all the marketing for you.  You need to promote your courses to your audience and community yourself if you are going to be successful.

Ranking in Udemy

Udemy Key Tips

Ranking in Udemy is dependent on a number of key variables including Student engagement but when you are starting off, you need to build the numbers of students in your courses to demonstrate to Udemy that your courses are of high quality.

The best way to start doing this is by offering free coupons to your community, encouraging them to enroll, take the course and leave you an “appropriate” review.

You must ensure that your personal biography and photo help you to stand out from the crowd.

You should engage with your students when ever possible, respond to their questions within 3 days and comment on their reviews when they are posted. It is also a good idea to set up an automated message for students welcoming them to your course and when they complete the course.

Udemy Categories and Sub Categories

Choosing the right category for your course is important. Typically, you will find that your course fits more than one sub category. If this is the case, choose the sub-category with the fewest courses in it.

Udemy Promotional Messages

This is the best way to sell your courses on Udemy and you should be taking the opportunity to send out both of your promotional messages to your students every month.  Not doing this is leaving money on the table.


Skillshare is a subscription based market place and they reward instructors for each new sign up by a student who is subscribed to the platform.  When you publish a new course, every existing student receives an email to let them know the course is live.

Courses are typically shorter than on Udemy, 10 to 30 minutes and must include a “project” for the students to complete to practice their new “skill”.

The best strategy is to promote your courses to your community and to publish new courses regularly.

With the recent difficulties at Udemy over the price change in April 2016, Skillshare has really benefited and is increasing its students, instructors and courses at a fast rate.

Facebook Groups

There are literally hundreds of Facebook groups which offer the opportunity to promote your online courses. Don’t just look for the Udemy or Skillshare groups but also seek out and join groups which relate to your topic.  Spend some time getting to know people and then ask the admin if you can promote your course to the community in the group.  You may have to share some of your revenue with the owner of the group.

Google Plus Communities

Although Google Plus is a lot smaller than Facebook, its members are very active and promoting your courses to relevant communities on Google Plus can be beneficial to sales

Best Black Hat Forum

This is a somewhat controversial site but it has a section dedicated to Udemy and Skillshare courses where you can promote free coupons and discount coupons but only for Udemy.

Email Marketing

Every Online Entrepreneur should be building their email list using an email service provider.  These include:

  • Mail Chimp
  • Aweber
  • Active Campaign
  • Convertkit
  • Infusionsoft

You will need to master the skill of creating a matrix of marketing materials which include:

  • A lead magnet
  • A landing page
  • An optin box
  • An email list
  • Thank you pages
  • Email welcome sequences
  • Email sales sequences
  • Email nuturing sequence

These are all designed to build rapport with the people who sign up to your email list and whom you should spend time cultivating and providing value to.

The saying, “The money is in the list” is TRUE!

Search Engine Optimisation

The art of Search Engine Optimisation is focused on helping the search engines, particularly Google, to be able to find your content and your course or product.

Search Engine Algorithms

The algorithm is a mathematical formula

There are aspects you can influence directly e.g keywords

Other aspects you can influence indirectly e.g course quality.

Unlike Google, it is not thought that the Udemy search algorithm changes very frequently.


When considering keywords, ask yourself what students are searching for.  A solution to a pain or problem will be high on the list.  Think about your student avatar and what their needs and wants are. Your title needs to speak to them in their terms.

Choose keywords that sell.

  1. Identify your primary and secondary keywords
    1. Primary keywords in title, if possible twice
    2. The biggest mistake you can make is not having keywords in your course titles and particularly having your primary keyword at the start of your course title.
    3. Secondary keywords in sub title. Include one in title if it makes sense
    4. Now create your title and sub title. Include a primary benefit in your title and at least three benefits, using secondary keywords in your subtitle.
    5. See if you can combine keywords to create word combinations which are keyword rich.
    6. Don’t be afraid to experiment with your course titles and change them from time to time.
    7. If you are following my strategy of hub and spoke, building clusters of courses around key topics can you start to dominate a keyword category? If you can when a prospective student searches for your course keyword, they will see that you are the go to expert in that topic through your domination of the search results.
    8. How can you expand your secondary keywords to reach more students? Do your broaden the reach horizontally or vertically.  Do your targeted keyword get more specific or more general?
    9. Don’t’ let any other characters or symbols touch your keywords. Make sure that there is a space between them.

How to Create the Perfect Course Title

  1. Total length is not important
  2. Primary keyword at the front
  3. One or two word keyword, (there is no long tail in Udemy)
  4. Try to create combinations of words which cover several secondary keywords
  5. Ensure you have a high ratio of keyword terms to other words
  6. Communicate the solution to a problem
  7. Include a benefit in the title if you can
  8. Check listings of other courses for different word combinations

How to Create the Perfect Sub Title

  1. Use all the characters
  2. Include primary keyword again
  3. Include secondary keywords
  4. Explain at least three benefits of the course
  5. As high a keyword to non keyword ratio pas possible. This can be lower than in your title.

Online Business – Part 3 – Getting Your First Sales

Once you have created your first digital product, you have to get out there and sell it.  Forget the idea, “If I build it, they will come” that only happens to Kevin Costner in Field of Dreams

Here are some of the key issues you must focus on.

Course/Product Title

  1. What keyword are you focusing on?
  2. Have you researched this in Keyword Planner?
  3. Is this keyword at the beginning of your title?
  4. Do You have a benefit in your title
  5. Does it appear once in your subtitle?
  6. Can you be more specific about benefits in your subtitle?
  7. What are your competitors doing?

Course/Product Image

  1. Does Your Course Image stand out from the Crowd?
  2. Does it “Pop” – Enhance saturation and use contrasting colours
  3. Listen to Episode 121 of the Online Learning podcast to hear Kirsten Palana discussing the use of colour to create standout images. .

Course/Product Sales Page

  1. Use the AIDA formula – Attention, Interest, Desire, Action – to sell your course/product in your sales copy
  2. Get Attention – following your catchy title and sub title
  3. What problem are you solving? Have you ever struggled….; Does it frustrate you that…
  4. Emphathise: I know how you feel, I know where you are coming from
  5. Up to now the only way has been….and that has been difficult/expensive/time consuming
  6. Solve the problem: this is why I have made this course…
  7. Establish Authority – My name is….. and I have…..
  8. Benefits of the course/product….
  9. How Your course/product differentiates from the others
  10. Bullets – this is what you will discover in the course….
  11. Quotes from happy clients (when you have some)
  12. First Call to Action – Take action  – and then get them to follow clear instructions explaining how they are going to be able to purchase your product
  13. De-risk – 30 day guarantee – Life time membership – all future updates are included at no additional cost?
  14. Questions – here to help, message me, start a discussion – encourage engagement with your students
  15. Imagine how great you will feel when…
  16. Call to Action Two – Take action and click now
  17. Try to make the layout easy to read ,
    1. use +++++ across the page to break it up further and make it easier to read for scan readers
    2. Italics
    3. Bold
    4. Bullets
    5. Short sentences


What should you charge for your course or product?

How long is a piece of string.

Firstly, let me share the Product Pyramid concept with you.  You should design your products to cover a full range of prices. The higher the price, the more access your customer gets to you.

  • Free – great for lead magnets and building your list
  • Low/Mid Price – simple courses and products <$100
    • Kindle ebooks
    • Courses on Udemy/Skillshare
  • High – more complex and valuable content, host off market places on your own website or on platforms like or $100 – $500
  • Premium – high end coaching or mastermind groups, providing personal access to you. >$500

However you price your product, make sure that your pricing is consistent across all platforms and market places.  Be prepared to create discounts and offers for your products and therefore build this expectation into your pricing.

Endorsements and Social Proof

One the best ways to get early sales is to get some of your earliest customers and clients to give you honest and appropriate feedback and to get their permission to quote these reviews of your products as endorsements for the product.  You don’t have to use their names but if they will allow you to do so, showing this and ideally a photograph of them, makes the endorsement much more credible.

If you are just starting out, you can always take personal endorsements from Linkedin or from other customers and just quote them in the context of you personally rather than the product.  Change these over once your reviews come in.

If you can get a personal endorsement video from a client, this can be hugely powerful.  Here is one from one of my coaching customers.

Friends, Family and Free

Don’t be afraid to give away a few coupons to your product or course to get the ball rolling.

Everyone hates to go first.  If there are NO people enrolled in your course, it will make the first sale much more difficult.

So, approach your friends, family and online communities and share some free coupons.  Keep the number limited and make sure that there is a date expiry on them.  If you post them online, you can expect them to be shared so this is really important to keep a lid on things.

Make A Launch Plan

It really helps to have a plan!

I recommend breaking down the plan into three phases

  • Pre Launch
  • Launch
  • Post Launch

Pre-Launch Marketing

  • Building expectation in your educational announcements of your other products and services
  • Choosing the right course URL
    1. Make sure you have your keywords in your URL before you hit publish.
  • Blogging
    1. Create a blog post about your up coming course and if possible create a landing page which you can collect email addresses in advance of publishing your course
  • Ensure that you have Google Analytics set up on your course/product page so that you can see where your traffic is coming from
  • Sharing in your Facebook Groups – let people know that your new course is coming
    1. Find relevant Facebook groups, join them. Don’t spam them with an announcement but drop hints when commenting, that you have a course on this coming up.
  • Preparing and warming up your reviewers – cultivate your inner circle
    1. Build up good will by reviewing their courses and getting some good will in the bank
    2. How to ask for a review – you should ask for “an appropriate review”
    3. How not to ask for a review – you should not ask for a “Five Star Review” or even a “positive review”.
  • Engage with instructors/product creators you don’t know and sign up for their free courses. Leave them a positive review. Contact them, tell them how great their course was and tell them you have left them a Review. When you publish your course, you can go back to them, offer them your course and ask them to consider leaving a rating and review.
  • Creating an landing page – collecting emails, Lead magnets and free offers, first to know, plus other bonuses, add to your mailing list, create scarcity…
  • Be clear in your launch pricing strategy
    1. Where and when to offer free
    2. Pricing through launch – Launch at a special launch price and make it clear that the price will be increasing
    3. Incentives to buy soon – offer an extra bonus (checklist, extra content, ebook, recorded webinar) for a limited time to get them to sign up
    4. When not to offer for free – think hard about this. Certainly not after the initial launch period, other than on a strictly limited basis.

Launch Marketing

  • Setting up launch offers
    1. Coupon Codes ranging from Free to your launch price
    2. Address different audiences differently. Its OK to have different offers around
    3. Offer special deals to those closest to you and discount offers to new connections
  • Using Free for social proof, early on
    1. This makes your course look appealing to new students
    2. Helps you your course or product to get traction
    3. A paying student, even at $1, is more valuable than a free student
  • Offering bonuses
    1. Include extra bonuses which are only available for a limited amount of time around your launch
  • Updates
    1. Frequent updates keep your course moving forward
    2. Consider launching with a section or two up your sleeve and publish these a month or two after launch
  • Using reviews in your marketing and course summary
    1. Include these in your marketing and quote a couple in your course description landing page
  • Previews and Audio content to spread buzz
    1. Post your promo video on Youtube, share it on other video sites too: Vimeo
    2. Take the MP3 sound track from one or two courses, mix into an audio promo and publish on Youtube, Soundcloud and other Audio sites
    3. If you know any podcasters, try to get on their show to talk about your courses

Online Business – Part 2 – Product Creation

Creating a digital product for your Online Business for the first time can be daunting – my first course took me over six months to create but then no body was helping me!

There are two parts to the product creation process.  The first is getting the technology – software and hardware – right. Then you actually have to make the thing!

Kit and Caboodle!

Lets take a look at the equipment you will need and the good news is that you don’t need to spend a fortune, particularly if you already have a half reasonable computer.

At a minimum you will need:

  • A computer – desktop or laptop – with a reasonable amount of memory and computing power.  I would suggest a minimum of:
    • 4 GB RAM
    • 1 Terrabyte Hard Drive
    • A modern processor – mine is 1600 MHZ
    • I have an iMac Desktop which has a 3 TB hard drive and 32 GB of RAM
  • A good microphone – I use a Blue Yeti which is around $100
  • An HD camera
    • I do not advise getting a DSLR – I have a Logitech HD Webcam with a USB connection which is around $50
    • Your smart phone also has an excellent video camera – in all likelihood – so don’t ignore this wonderful piece of equipment
  • Screen recording software; these are my two recommendations.  There are other solutions to this but these products are tailor made for this and they work.  Think time is money
    • Screenflow – Mac Only – this is what I use
    • Camtasia – PC and MAC
    • Screencastomatic
  • Presentation Software
    • Keynote – Mac
    • Powerpoint – PC

I would also recommend you have a system for backing up your files which can be a separate hard drive or a cloud solution.  Don’t ever get caught out by not having a back up.

As far as kit goes, that is about it. You can get very fancy but it won’t necessarily make your course better

Lets take a look now at the product production process

Product Production

Designing your digital product can be difficult or you can make it really easy for yourself.  Here are some of my top tips:

  • Establish ONE single clear objective for your product or course
  • Brainstorm the key topics and content in a bullet point list or a mind map
  • Arrange these in a logical order – ensure they flow from start to finish – from problem identification to problem solution
  • Establish three levels
    • Sections
    • Lectures
    • Lecture Content
  • Find similar courses to your own on Udemy, Skillshare or other teaching platforms,  take a look at how the instructors have covered the material
    • What have you missed out?
    • How can you create your course to make it better, unique and make it really stand out
  • Go to Amazon Kindle
    • Identify best selling books covering your topic
    •  Review the table of contents to see what you can add/improve to your course/product
  • Consider what additional materials you can add to your product to make it even better
    • Quizzes, checklists, cheatsheets?

Here is my outline process guide to creating a digital product

  • Lecture Creation Sequence
    1. The Correct order of creating your course lectures/content is
      1. All your main lectures
      2. Wrap up and Summary lectures
      3. Introduction Lecture
      4. Promotional video
  • Lecture Titles and Descriptions
    1. Try to use your keywords in your lecture titles, descriptions and in the Sections too!
    2. Lecture titles should intrigue as well as inform? Make your student want to take the lecture:
    3. Provide at least one paragraph course description, including key words
    4. If you want to be more helpful you can provide a more detailed summary of the course
  • Advanced Lecture Descriptions: Dragon Dictate (requires purchase)
    1. Export the audio track to Dragon Dictate
    2. Import and create transcription
    3. Correct and repost in CC
  • Course Content
    1. Consider including an “Introduce yourself” lecture for your second lecture. This should encourage new students to leave a discussion comment saying who they are, where they come from, what they do and what they hope to get from the course. You should also try to get them to explain their biggest challenge – great for getting new content ideas for your course.
  • Three Other Lectures to Include:
    1. Introduce Yourself – ask the student to introduce themselves in the discussion area
    2. Time Out – Feedback Lecture – ask the student to provide you with feedback on the lecture either directly messaging or through the discussions
    3. Section Introductions and Section Summaries
    4. Activities and Quizzes to increase student engagement.

Bonus Tip – Productivity

When you create your first digital product, do not assume that it is going to be your last.

It will really help you in the future if you can record the steps you take when you create your product – in a bulleted list or in a mind map.

What you want to do is to create systems which are going to make your production process faster and more efficient in the future.  Keep detailed notes and links to your folders and published material so that you can cross link and access material quickly.

This will also become important if you ever expand to a team or employ a Virtual Assistant to help you with your business.  Systems make everything simpler.

Use tools like Evernote to keep detailed notes of your process and your material.

Use tools like Zapier and ITTT (If This Then That) to automate your processes, funnels and sales in your business.

Startup Bundle – Are You Stuck? This May Help

When you’re bootstrapping a startup, it’s normal to have times when you feel stuck. Discouraged. And in way over your head.

Which is probably why so many startups fail in the early years. It’s hard to predict the bumps and roadblocks you’ll hit along the way, or which ones you’ll lose the most sleep over.

Of course, you’re willing to do whatever it takes to make things happen. Start and run your business lean. Hustle hard until you hit your stride. Study and learn from smart entrepreneurs who’ve gone before.

But you’re up against a lot of challenges, too.

Maybe you’ve got great ideas but you’re lacking the specific business know-how. Money is probably tight. Your time is stretched thin. You’re bombarded with information but not sure who to listen to or what to do next.

You want to do things right and to do that, you need to learn from the best.

And that’s why the Ultimate Startup Bundle was created.

It’s a complete library of business and startup resources on all the topics you need to round out your business and avoid crucial mistakes along the way.

It contains 58 eBooks and 12 eCourses, all created by experienced business owners who’ve been there, done that, and really know their stuff.

These hand-picked resources are designed to address each part of your startup journey with all the right tactics, tools, strategies and business helps to guide you on the road to success.

Including resources like Hooked (Nir Eyal), The Growth Hacker’s Guide to the Galaxy (Jeff Goldenberg and Mark Hayes), The Lean Brand (Jeremiah Gardner), Born to Win (Zig Ziglar), and Booked (Josh Turner), it covers everything you need to know about:

  • Getting Started
  • Lead Generation
  • Mindset
  • Marketing
  • Getting Sales
  • Copywriting
  • Product Creation Finance
  • Productivity
  • Scaling

With a product value of over $3,300, it’s the full meal deal and was carefully curated to give entrepreneurs like you an edge as you build your business.

In fact, it’s the sort of thing I only wish had been around when I launched my first online business.

At just $97 for the entire bundle, it’s a far cry less than you’ll pay for many monthly membership sites (often $50-$100 per month), online business courses (typically $999-$5,000), and let’s not even talk about the tens or hundreds of thousands you can spend on a traditional business degree.

With content from over 60 top authors, it’s a robust library of business resources that covers the A to Z of creating, marketing and scaling a successful startup.

But you’ve got to act now because the Ultimate Startup Bundle is only around for a few days, and then the team that created it loses their license to make this incredible library available.

As an added bonus, along with the products in the bundle you’ll receive free access to premium online software services to support your business, like ConvertKit, ClickFunnels, SamCart, and Thinkific, worth over $900, which makes the small investment of $97 even more of a no-brainer.

Online Business – Six Steps to Starting Your First Online Business – Part 1

Blog Images.001Online Business Part 1 – Getting Started

Have you started your Online Business yet?

Yes? Great, how is it going?

No? Why not? What is holding you back?

Getting started is the most difficult part of any business and finding the right place to start can be a real challenge.  So I thought I would create a series of posts to help you get started.

This Series is going to cover:

  • Part 1 – Getting Started
  • Part 2 – Product Creation
  • Part 3 – Getting Your First Sales
  • Part 4 – Marketing
  • Part 5 – Lead Generation
  • Part 6 – Scaling your Business

So, lets dive in and get started right now!

Step One – Getting Started!

Firstly I want to share an important framework with you – which I use for my Online Courses business:

  • Plan – get your business plan organised
  • Produce – produce your digital product
  • Publish – get the product out there
  • Proof – obtain endorsements and social proof
  • Promote – gear up your marketing efforts
  • Platforms – expand and scale your business with repurposing and by using different platforms, on and off line.

You need to decide what your online business is going to focus on.  The options are very wide indeed but I will be focusing on just one as I think its the easiest way to get an online business started.

You could:

  • start an ecommerce business – eBay, Amazon FBA, etsy
  • become an affiliate – click bank, jvzoo
  • write ebooks – kindle
  • create digital products
  • high end private coaching over Skype
  • sell products on your own website
  • sell your services through your website or through a podcast – consulting

My favourite of these is creating your own digital products based on your own expertise.  We are all experts in so many topics and through the internet we can find literally millions of people who are prepared to pay you to share that expertise with them.


So, your first step is to identify your own expertise.

So what are you expert at?

Evaluate your own skills based on your training and experience. Cast the net wide and consider everything in which you have any expertise. Remember the definition of an expert is someone who knows more than you do.

  • Work
  • Qualifications
  • Experience
  • Hobbies and Passions

There are some Evergreen topics for which there is always demand.  Consider some of these – identify those in which you have existing expertise?

  • Leadership
  • Investing
  • Productivity
  • Sales
  • Motivation
  • Spirituality
  • Marketing
  • Health
  • Parenting
  • Business
  • Relationships

Next I want you to focus on the PAIN that your potential customers are suffering from. Remember – pain sells!

  • What do people around you ask you to solve for them?
  • What do you know they need?
  • What results to they want, but cannot achieve on their own?

Once you have identified the topic on which you are going to establish yourself in, you need to plan your first digital product.

Remember, you may be an established expert in your field already, what you need to do is to bring that expertise to your online audience and become known and respected as an authority in that field.

Here are the key steps you need to follow.

  • Have a Course Planning Road Map
    1. To be successful you need to have a portfolio of courses and digital products to offer to your students.
    2. The worst way to create these is one at a time with little or no planning
    3. Instead, work out what you are going to create for your first six to 10 courses. They should be in related but not overlapping subjects
    4. You want to build a student body who know, like and trust your courses and to whom you can cross sell.
    5. Creating a cluster of unrelated courses is a critical mistake and will greatly reduce your income potential
  • New Course Content
    1. Once you have created some core courses, I recommend that you create several 30-45 minute niche courses which relate to your existing core content. You can cross sell these to your existing students.
  • Topic Selection
    1. Create courses which address a pain or problem for your students.
    2. Teach a new skill – preferably one with career, business or money earning benefits
    3. Be specific, have a clear end objective for the course.
    4. General “theoretical” courses do not compete well against courses which are addressing specific student needs.
    5. Review the Competition – What are other experts in your field doing?
    6. Remember above all your students are asking, Whats in it for me?
  • Course Length
    1. Consider your product/course price and related the length and quality of your content to the price you plan to charge for it.
    2. Course Quality is important and it must deliver the result promised
    3. The minimum length I would recommend is 60 minutes for a stand alone course
    4. Max length? This is a hotly debated topic. No longer than 2 hours and ideally 60 to 90 minutes in my view
    5. Students prefer concise courses that solve their problem
    6. If you have six hours of content – split it into Modules or separate parts and create three separate courses

“Very effective for learning more about Udemy in just a few minutes

If you want to learn more about the Udemy marketplace and love data visualizations, you might have the same experience I did here. I figured I could give this course at least 15 minutes today to skim through and see what John came up with. In just 15 minutes I learned a lot about Udemy I did not know such as what courses are the top and I discovered a lot of instructors I had never heard of that have top courses on Udemy. In just a few minutes this course was helpful for me in motivating me to continue working on Udemy and learning more about what works to get students and grow here. Thank you John! There is a TON of depth here in the course if you go through and download the program and data sets on John offers. I may give this a shot when I am done filming my lectures!” 5 Stars
