Okay, I just HAVE TO write up a post about a really cool online course I just took called "Marketing for Educators." If you’re looking to take your side business to the next level, I highly recommend taking this course. Even if you aren’t an educator, this e-course will give you the confidence to apply your current skills and experience into growing your business.
Most marketing information and courses are aimed at people who have a different skill set and more time on their hands. Everything in this e-course can be done after in the evenings or on the weekends, which is exactly when you will be working to grow your business any way!
Over five lessons you will learn the basics of marketing your product or service including homework assignments to move you along in the process. The part I love is that you can do these assignments
Once you’ve completed the course, you will have:
· a professional business card
· a prepared an “elevator pitch”
· created a list of potential customers
· written a marketing email
The retail price of the course is $25, but using my code SCOOTER, you’ll receive $5 off the cost of the course. The best part is you can access the course at anytime and use the lessons for any business from photography (like me!) to an Etsy shop and everything in between.
Seriously, this course was SO HELPFUL to me for my photography business. I also have an Etsy shop for some digital prints I do, and I'm planning on applying this e-course for that as well.
Anywho, I don't do "sponsored" posts...um, ever! --but I thought this one was worthy enough of a blog post by me :) And, I guess it's not even really sponsored--I'm not reaping any monetary benefits or anything from it (just giving YOU a discount if you use it!), I'm just endorsing it I guess I should say. It really is a very handy course that I think would be super beneficial for anyone wanting to market their small/side business!
If you take the course (don't forget to use the code SCOOTER for $5 off!!) please let me know what you think of it! I'm anxious to hear! :)
