The course itself is a case study showing exactly what you could do today to make a free offer people will find valuable, present a trustworthy website to collect email addresses, and engage in successful relationship marketing every week with your now growing email list.
You can expect a course of screen capture tutorials where I show you step by step the best of what works for me and then guide you through setting it up one click at a time. When you have heard terms like "the money is in the list" and "your list is everything" you will be able to see the truth in these sayings when you see how I build an email list in this course. You can finish this course in just a few hours and get started doing the same things you see me do!
You will be able to best use this course if you have both a free MailChimp account, a free WordPress website, and a LeadPages account. You can watch this course first to decide if you want any of these and everything you see can be done totally for free if you learn how to get your own WordPress website hosted, have less than 2,000 subscribers on MailChimp, and make landing pages in WordPress instead of LeadPages. While I use MailChimp and LeadPages in this course, you can easily translate it to another email marketing software such as Aweber, ConstantContact, or any others with similar features. With my choice to use LeadPages, you easily could make the landing pages on any other website.
Take this course to learn if email marketing is for you and see what opportunities you might have today to do it right!
In 2005 while I was in college at the University of South Carolina, I tried to start working online. I signed up for an MLM program and a survey website. A month later, I had refunds from both and figured working online was not possible because everything was a scam. The truth was I was afraid to fail again.
In 2011, I moved in with my wife and launched an online business focusing on video game addiction in an attempt to avoid dealing with any of my other problems. In a few months, I changed my business to selling shirts because I realized there was no money in video game addiction. A year after starting my business, I dropped out of my criminology PHD program at the University of South Florida to run my business full time which by then had changed to helping clients with Facebook and Google ads based on my experience failing to do them successfully for myself.
In 2013, I starting sharing everything I knew for free on YouTube because I hoped it would help me get more clients. By April 2014, I was nearly bankrupt after failing at 15+ different business models. I was also nearly dead from trying to drink the pain away and fortunately the fear of death motivated me to get into recovery. Being in recovery motivated me to focus more on being of true service to others and less on what I would get out of it. I started making courses online with Udemy which soon turned into my first real business. I partnered with as many talented instructors as I could and learned from top instructors how to get my courses the most sales.
In 2015, I tried making some inspirational videos sharing what I learned in recovery and got an amazing response on YouTube. To make the background on my videos more interesting, I started making the inspirational videos while playing video games. To make a more helpful website, I hired a freelancer to convert the videos into blog posts including this about page originally.
