As an entrepreneur you will at some point need to buy a course online to help you with establishing your business properly. Not every course out there is worth the money so you really need to do your digging.
A great way to start is to joined some type of Facebook Group and see what other people are saying. Depending on the niche you’re in make sure you joined an appropriate group. Ask questions as to what courses people are taking in which ones they find are valuable or not. Be careful of the ones that are sending you an affiliate link as they will only be in it for the money. Make sure that other people have the same positive opinions of the course that you want to buy.
Digital Product Review Sites
You can also look up some marketing course reviews for entrepreneurs by Drews-Review where on this site you may find a course that you are trying to buy and get an unbiased review on the product. More often than not you’ll be able to get a sneak peek of the digital product by having the members area shown to you but not in great detail obviously. The site also has a YouTube Channel you can check out.
A good reviewer will buy the course first, absorb the material and then give their honest take on the product. If the digital product is good they will recommend it but be aware the link they provide is an affiliate link. This does not cost you more and it keeps these reviewers going because it make a commission off the sale. In essence is a win-win situation so definitely take advantage of this if you’re serious about buying a course.
Another advantage of buying a course from a reviewer online is that they will occasionally offer bonuses. Sometimes these bonuses are not worth much but at times I’ve seen some bonuses that are better than the actual offer. This is very rare but it does sometimes happen.
If you’re going to purchase a product based on the bonus make sure that it is tied into the line of business that you’re involved in. For example, if you are buying a course on E commerce, it would be silly to get a bonus on affiliate marketing for example. Look for bonuses that complement the product you are trying to buy. For example if you’re buying an e-commerce course and the bonus may be an ebook on branding, then this would be considered a valuable bonus especially if the course does not discuss this.
Importance of a Good Course
The importance of a course should never be underestimated. It can take you years to learn a skill by researching online for free information then trying to compact it all into something logical. The only way you are going too fast track your success is to emulate what successful people do. Just be careful of digital products where the creator is a onetime success. What I mean by this is that there been countless numbers of young entrepreneurs that have made a lot of money by doing one thing and then create a course based on their success. While this may work for some, chances are they have not seen any subsequent success so we’re trying to capitalize on their initial success. Make sure that the course you buy it comes from someone who is respected in the community that you want to be a part of.
In conclusion, what ever you decide to do just make sure that you invest your money wisely and the proper course. Don’t just listen to other people are saying, get yourself a legitimate review and if possible a reviews that includes a walk around the course material.
