Business Mentoring Program
Fancy working from home? Want to be your own boss?
Do you have an eye for detail and a creative flair?
Join my four-month mentoring program to get your own web design business started.
Within four months, you’ll be able to offer a professional service that marries beautiful design with effective SEO and provides online marketing solutions.
Only ONE IN TWO new businesses make their fourth birthday.
TWO THIRDS never see ten years.
That means that 50% of new businesses fall inside four years. And two out of three will never get to celebrate ten years in business.
Not only does this represent a loss of income after years of hard slog but also a huge loss of the time, energy and money that you’ve invested into the venture.
Here’s some good news.
New businesses are TWICE as likely to succeed if they work with a business mentor in the inception of the business.
During the four-month program, you’ll learn the following:
- How to use and master WordPress, the best website Content Management System available.
- How to use and master state-of-the-art software essential for custom design.
- How to use essential HTML and CSS and basic PHP (code languages).
You’ll also learn:
- All my design tips and tricks.
- What online resources I use in my business, free resources you can use too.
- All my stock-in-trade SEO strategies.
- What sources I access to keep abreast with changes in the world of Google in particular, and search engine optimisation in general.
In four months, you’ll be able to build custom websites that are aligned with SEO best practice!
Yes, you’ll be running your own web design agency.
How is the program run? How will we be in contact?
What does the program cost?
The cost is just $2,600 payable in four payments ($800 upfront and $600 a month thereafter).
This discounted price is available only to the first three participants. (Thereafter, the four-month program costs $3,500.)
Remember, you don’t just get a head full of theory; I walk with you every step of the way. You’ll be fully equipped to run your own business. In four months!
What do I get out of the program?
Do you charge any additional fees?
No, the program fee covers all the costs associated with my investment of time, resources and knowledge.
However, there are other expenses related to setting up your own business.
You will need to apply for an Australian Business Number, register a domain name and procure webhosting at your own expense. While these third-party costs are not expensive, they are in addition to the fee of my program. (I will guide you in registering the domain name and procuring the webhost, as part of the mentoring program.)
Furthermore, while you’ll enjoy access to the software I’m licensed to use during the four-month program, you will need to purchase your own license at the end of the four months. This again is not overly expensive. At $139 a year for the license, you’ll have access to a large and growing range of excellent builder software. (And I will teach you how to use the software and how to utilise the support systems associated with it.)
What will I need?
You’ll need a desktop computer. Yes, a laptop will work, but I do recommend a desktop. (An iPad, for instance, will not be sufficient.)
I also recommend that you get Office365, but again, that’s optional.
And it goes without saying that you’ll need access to the Internet.
Will you generate leads for me?
No, I cannot generate client leads for you. You’ll have to do this through your own circles of influence and by applying the marketing strategies that you learn.
What if I’m under eighteen years of age?
If you’re under eighteen years of age (but older than sixteen) you can participate in the program as long as you have the written consent of your parent or guardian. Furthermore, you parent or guardian must agree to cover the cost. (If you’re under sixteen, you cannot participate in the program.)
Anything else that I should know?
Yes, I don’t specifically address e-commerce in this program. Why? Because it would add another two months to properly cover Woocommerce, WordPress’s go-to e-commerce software.
If at the end of the four-month program, you want me to cover this too, I would be happy to extend the program for a further two months at a cost of $600 per month. Thereafter, you’ll be able to build and configure a website with a fully functional online shop.
