1. Affiliate Marketing

2. Marketing and PR for Small Businesses

3. Social Media Marketing


1. Affiliate Marketing: Use Affiliate Marketing Effectively

Affiliate marketing is often seen as a quick-win that requires very little effort, but when affiliates and merchants treat it as such they rarely reap the rewards. This course unlocks the secrets to success – divulging how to invest your efforts effectively, to cultivate the best possible return. You’ll learn to recognise and encourage your most profitable campaigns (as an affiliate publisher) and identify and nurture your best-performing affiliates (as a merchant).

The Affiliate Marketing Course gives you a solid understanding of what affiliate marketing is, including its various forms, pros and cons, and how it came about. You’ll be familiarised with some of the many different affiliate marketing networks, how networks function and what services they offer to affiliate marketers and merchants.

From this course, you’ll learn how to use affiliate marketing effectively, from both the side of the affiliate marketer and the merchant. You’ll learn about the importance of choosing a good niche, what makes a good niche market, how to research markets and trends effectively, and what the most profitable niches are.

Who would benefit from this course?

Most people dream about making what is called a “passive income” – with the best way being that you are making money while you sleep. The Affiliate Marketing Course will show you how to do that by monetising content you already have or creating content that promotes niche products, in order to do so.

As a business owner, you will discover how to use affiliate marketing to have your products or services advertised and sold by others for very little investment and an incredible return.

If you already know your way around affiliate marketing or are attracted to this business model, this course will help you in setting up and running a successful business in this area.

2. Marketing and PR for Small Businesses: Take These First Steps To Move Your Small Business Forward

The Marketing & PR for Small Businesses Course simplifies the learning process with easy-to-understand, straightforward, and useful techniques that you can apply to your business straight away; ensuring straightforward your own strategies, with actionable tactics and results that you can evaluate, build and learn from.

Most small businesses are the manifestation of a dream. The business owner behind them dreams of being their own boss or selling a service or product in which they truly believe. They might be setting up a home business to supplement a low-paying day job, or they may have seen a gap in the market and took the plunge to plug it with an idea that excites them so much they can barely sleep at night.

Rarely does someone go into business because they want to spend hours figuring out ways to persuade customers to engage with them, buy from them, or even notice them. They want to set out their stall and let the success just happen.

In the real world, it doesn’t work that way. In the real world the most critical skills any business, small, medium-sized or otherwise, can have is their ability to communicate – and that, essentially, comes down to marketing and PR. No matter how original or special a small business’s product or service is, without any marketing and PR efforts they will not succeed.

The reason for this is straightforward. Through marketing and PR your product or service has a chance to be promoted to and discovered by potential clients. Without it, those same clients won’t hear about your business. They won’t be able to purchase what you’re offering, and your business will not be able to make sales and will probably close.

It sounds drastic, but the truth is that half of all small businesses fail within the first five years. While this is a gloomy statistic it can also be used to highlight an important fact: No matter what your business is, marketing and PR can make all the difference between rising up or falling flat.

This Marketing and PR for Small Businesses home study course is thus designed to guide new small business owners (or those thinking about starting their own venture) through the simple steps of how to communicate about their products or services to potential customers.

The course sets out to demystify exactly how a small business can benefit from these two disciplines and offers clear choices on the different marketing and PR tactics that businesses employ today.

Managing marketing and PR is not rocket science. However, it does take time, thought, commitment and a little creativity to incorporate it into your overall business structure and action plan.

In the comfort of your home and in your own time, you can then use this course to become familiar with the principles of marketing and PR and to start developing your individual strategy.

Understanding just how vital marketing and PR are to your burgeoning small business and its future is crucial, but with these first steps, your business is already moving forward.

Who would benefit from the course?

For those who are setting up their own business or have an established business but would like to grow or is struggling to achieve what you had hoped, the Marketing & PR for Small Businesses Course is essential.

Those who already work within the marketing and PR industries or are interested in doing so will also learn a lot here, as the course provides a wealth of information and tips.

3. Social Media Marketing: Learn How To Create A Multi-Platform Social Media Marketing Strategy

This course will teach you how to create a multi-platform Social Media Marketing strategy which engages your audience, developing and leveraging trust, authenticity and advocacy, whilst delivering a favourable return on investment.

The Social Media Marketing Course is separated into 2 distinct areas. The 1st tells you about social media itself and how to approach it from a marketing perspective, the 2nd looks at several platforms individually and explains the business benefits of each. You will learn how and why businesses large and small can use social media marketing to reach and engage with their target markets.

You will discover how social media differs from traditional marketing and PR activities. The course explains how these differences can be utilised to create stronger customer relationships, and how specific, measurable goals can be set and reached. One important difference, which the course covers extensively, is the Consumer Feedback Cycle which can have an impact on the growth of a business and affect change.

Recognising the need to have a social media strategy in place is one thing but creating a targeted, goal-led strategy, is another. The Social Media Marketing Course explains, in detail, how to go about creating an effective content marketing plan and social media strategy, the effectiveness of which you can track, measure and improve.

The course explains how social media audits and customer profiling should determine how you use social media and help you to identify which platforms are best for your business. To ensure you have considered all the options, this course takes an in-depth look at each of the Top 50 social media platforms. Along with Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, and Google+, the course also looks at some of the smaller and more niche platforms. It also explains how to go about using a number of platforms for a single objective and how to simplify the process of managing multiple platforms.

Who would benefit from the course?

Social media can play a valuable role in the promotion of any organisation, business, product or event. Whether you've never used social media for business before, run campaigns that have not brought the returns you had hoped for or are planning to start a career in this area, the Social Media Marketing Course has something to teach you.

This course is ideal for anyone who wants to learn how to create effective, measurable social media marketing strategies on the most appropriate platforms for their target audience.

To ensure you have considered all the options, this course takes an in-depth look at each of the Top 50 social media platforms. Along with Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, and Google+, the course also looks at some of the smaller and more niche platforms. It also explains how to go about using a number of platforms for a single objective and how to simplify the process of managing multiple platforms.
