Thanks for getting in touch. I understand why you’re a little hesitant in joining the premium membership, after all there are a lot of shady online schemes that never get results. All I can say is that I’ve personally gotten real results from this and I love the transparency – they give you a free membership option so you can see exactly what Wealthy Affiliate is all about before making your decision.
One of the biggest concerns I hear about teaching online courses is the fact that people can learn practically anything for free by searching online. While this is probably true, the fact is that many people will buy a course that clearly teaches exactly what the person is looking for. Rather than spending hours upon hours searching YouTube for tutorials on how to learn x y or z, people find value in a structured online course that also has an instructor there, available for any questions.
This is similar in concept to micro-tasks, except that it is oriented toward specific services, such as cleaning services, pest inspection, handyman services, house cleaning, lawn & garden services or any of the skilled trades. It might actually be more accurate to say that it is a platform where skilled service providers can offer their services to site visitors, similar to Angie’s List.
Creating and selling courses could be more than just an online business you started one or two years ago. In fact, years from now, if you are committed to it and truly believe that you can make a strong impact through teaching your favorite subject, you could be the next Chris Anderson – the curator of TED (Technology, Education, Design) conferences, in the eyes of future generations!
Now next, you’ll want to pick a WordPress theme from somewhere like ThemeForest, Elegant Themes or OptimizePress. This is the barebones design of your site, which you can then customize with your own branding, copy, and images. That being said, you don’t want to cheap out. It costs less than $100 to buy a theme that will make your website look professional (and you can upgrade to a completely custom design once you get the business going).
Infographics are currently an extremely popular type of media. An infographic showing information or data in an interesting and fun way can help engage an audience and generate numerous likes and shares. As infographics take more time to create than just simply uploading an image, busy website owners are prepared to pay for custom infographics. And don’t worry, an infographic can be created using simple design software such a Canva. So extensive graphic design skills are not necessary, just a creative eye.
I can say that the Internet Jetset course itself is not a scam as it has decent content and information to be learnt by beginners. However, the “system” is not really a system. It’s pretty weak as it offers no tools for beginners to use and start building their online business. What John offers is a list of links to external websites and software. Some of the links are even naked affiliate links without any guidance.
That’s been the case for Lili Balfour, a financial advisor for startups. She’s created six courses on Udemy, including How to Crowd Fund a Million Dollars and Finance Boot Camp for Entrepreneurs. Some of her courses are as short as 30 minutes, but most run between 2-3 hours; she sells them for between $47-$197. The courses have given her an opportunity to spread her message more widely. “The goal is to help entrepreneurs understand finance in a fun way,” she says. Here are the key questions she’s answered in the process of creating and selling her courses.
