4-Day course with Penelope: How to start an online business

PenelopeTrunk.com - Tue, 01/20/2015 - 11:17

The course will be 8pm EST  Mon. Feb. 23 through Thurs. Feb. 26. It’s $195 but if you sign up in the next seven days, the cost is $147. The course includes four days of live video sessions, live chat and email-based course materials. If  you miss the live sessions you can view them on demand.  

Sign up now.

This course is a peek into the inner workings of my life; how I figure out how to make money no matter what situation I’m in. My personal life shifts quickly, in big ways, and I have had to be able to shift my financial life to keep up with that. Most of my tactics for financial survival have been quick launches of online businesses, one after another, depending on what my needs are in that moment.

I’ve launched plenty of online businesses over many phases of my life. I’ve launched an online business when I had no experience and learned everything about online marketing from a book. I launched an online business when I had unlimited time to invest in making the business huge. And I’ve launched an online business while I’m homeschooling, and all I really want is five minutes’ peace.

It’s been a long, interesting road, but now I know: there are five types of online businesses that work, and in this course you’ll know what I know from that long road as I teach you what works. And what doesn’t.

I’ll show you how to figure out which type of business if right for you. And which ones aren’t.

I’ll show you the tactics it takes to launch an online business, but I’ll also show you how to tailor the process to your strengths and your passions. You’ll be surprised by how much control you can have over your life once you know how to launch an online business.

Day one: Find the best business for you to launch

An online business is very low-cost to start. There is almost no overhead, you do not need investors and you can build your business at whatever pace you want. Which means you have a lot of choices—so many that it’s hard to know how to start.

Everyone has different reasons for wanting to start an online business. This session will help you find the business model that will actually help you build the life you want.

Do you want to earn some extra spending money on the side? Do you need a great job on your resume? Are you bored with your life, or looking for a new project?

This session will cover:

  • The 5 types of online businesses that work
  • The online business that best leverages your particular strengths
  • The type of online business that will meet your financial goals

Day Two: Make a launch plan

One reason an online business is so low-cost to launch is that you can customize your business to play to skills you already have. So much of success comes from self-knowledge. The more clearly you understand your strengths, the more smoothly your business will operate.

I’ve spent years testing launch plans, and I’ve made all the mistakes so you don’t have to. In this session you’ll learn best practices for people who are just like you. Once you have a blueprint for a successful launch, your confidence will increase and so will your productivity; there’s nothing like a clear, tactical plan to make you go after your dreams.

This session will cover:

  • The launch-plan template I’ve used many times for my own online businesses
  • 7 Low-cost ways to make your site look great from the start
  • How to shut down the noise and outside pressure and focus on the essentials of launching

Day Three: Make your first month great, and then you’re home free

 What you are really after is a sustainable online business, one you can count on to make money. To that end, we’ll focus this session on crafting systems that create customers.

I will show you the quick, free system I’ve developed for testing online business models, so you can find a system that works for you. We will explore the most popular strategies for drawing customers to your site, and teach you how to convert website traffic to paying customers.

This session will cover:

  • Proven systems online entrepreneurs use to generate sales
  • Tactics for pinpointing the weak spot in the sales process and fixing it
  • Methods for evaluating success; how to turn failures into success in just one day

Day Four: Live Q&A

This session will be a live workshop where I help you vet your ideas (so you know what businesses won’t work at all), and find the best business to launch. During this live Q&A I can give you direct feedback and answer any questions you have about running an online business.

The course will be 8pm EST  Mon. Feb. 23 through Thurs. Feb. 26. It’s $195 but if you sign up in the next seven days, the cost is $147. The course includes four days of live video sessions, live chat and email-based course materials. If  you miss the live sessions you can view them on demand.
