There are so many opportunities for writers in this digital age and the world of publishing has evolved greatly over the last few years.

5. Successful Self-Publishing: Learn The Basics Of Self-Publishing

You’ve got a great idea for a book and you’ve started putting pen to paper (or fingers to keys) or you may have already finished it! How will you get it out into the world? You could hire a traditional publisher but you’ll lose creative control and royalties can be 7-25% per book sold (with 25% being on the incredibly generous end) or you can self-publish, keep total creative control and earn up to 70% of the royalties of each book. Tempted? Take this course and you’ll learn the skills needed in self-publishing your book – cover design and layout, proofing, publishing, distributing, and marketing.

The Successful Self-Publishing Certificate Course begins by guiding you through the basics of self-publishing. You’ll quickly get answers to the big questions, such as why you should self- publish and the benefits of doing so and, conversely, reasons self-publishing may not be for you. There are legal obligations you need to fulfil and to self-publish requires money, the course will talk you through what to expect in both these areas.

With your book written and your working title in place. This course will show you the process of finessing the details, large and small, to get your text ready for publication. You’ll learn the dos and don’ts of titling your book and what to include in your cover text, how to self-edit or hire and work with an editor, how to prepare your text for the layout process, and what the established conventions that you should use in book anatomy, are.

Formatting should be invisible, unnoticed by the reader, but done poorly and inconsistently and the smallest of errors will pull your readers from the story, ruining the content of your work. You’ll learn how to use layout to enable your content to flow – with proper use of book sizing, page layout, fonts, spacing and alignment of text. Formatting for eBooks is also covered.

We are taught the metaphor ‘never judge a book by its cover’ but when it comes to books – we do. When confronted by a wall or screen of book covers and all you have to go off, as a customer, is a title and a cover, you will find yourself quickly judging covers and titles – giving just seconds to each. From this course, you will learn the do’s and don’ts of book cover design, from colour theory, graphics and images to fonts, copy placement, formatting and reproduction, to ensure yours is the cover that stands out and the book that gets bought. Even if you intend to commission a designer to do the work for you this essential knowledge will give you everything you need to understand what is needed and to get the cover you want.

With your files ready and book complete you need to understand the process of printing the finished work. The Successful Self-Publishing Certificate Course walks you through production, including the different printing methods available and how to convert your book into an eBook. It also stresses the importance of proofreading, how to proofread, and the common conventions used by proofreaders, should you choose to hire one.

Where many self-publishers fail is through not fully understanding distribution, because it doesn’t matter how good your book is, if no one can buy it you’re not going to make any money and it’ll be back to the 9-5. This course provides the knowledge you need to successfully get your book into bookshops, work with distributors and wholesalers, and price your book effectively for both printed and eBook versions.

You’ve published a book – don’t forget to tell people about it! Though before you publish, you need to have a marketing plan in place that will fit the content of your book. You’ll learn how to make sure your book is accurately represented in online bookstores and how to use tools such as social media, YouTube trailers, paid-for advertising, and mailing lists to promote and sell your book. You’ll also discover how to carry your marketing efforts on after publishing and through to your second book.

Who would benefit from this course?

You’ve written, or are in the process of writing, a book and want to publish it yourself, rather than work rely on a publisher, what do you do? This course outlines all the tasks involved and the skills needed to succeed in self-publishing a book.

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.

10. Project Management: Learn How To Be An Effective Project Manager

The role of a project manager is multifarious. You’ll lead teams on diverse projects – steering them from start to finish, elevate your career prospects and provide tangible value, adapt to changes and be constantly learning, never be bored in your job and be well-paid to do it. We’re going to help you get there with this incredibly detailed course, which examines the knowledge, skills, tools, and techniques you need to know to be an effective project manager.

You’ll explore the various ways in which a project’s team is put together and organised depending on the requirements of the company and the project, the various typical roles within a team, and how to create a hierarchy of team members.

Having been shown briefly how to create a project life cycle in the introduction to the course, you are later shown this process in much greater depth. You’ll discover how every project is separated into five smaller processes or phases that are tailored to the needs of the project and which make up a project lifecycle. Each of these five processes is covered in incredible depth to give a comprehensive understanding of their purpose within the lifecycle. The phases discussed are Initiation and Planning, Processes: Execution, Monitoring and Controlling, Change Management, and Closure.

To ensure that the aim of a project is achieved as efficiently as is practicably possible requires proper coordination of processes and activities, this is known as Project Integration Management and is examined and described fully in this course. You’ll learn about what the role entails and the steps to take and processes to follow to be effective in the position and how to develop and incorporate and action and monitor a project management plan using proven methodologies.

Time, cost, and quality are a trio of variables that must be planned in from the beginning and tracked all the way through to the closure of a project, helping you to adjust resources as necessary throughout. The Project Management Course guides you through the tools and techniques used to ensure you stay on top of these important areas.

Critical to the success of any project and the most important resource at your disposal, is the people working on it – the project team. Projects get done by people, not by tools, techniques or technology and you’ll learn the considerations you need to make to ensure you get the best people onboard.

You’ll learn to understand what is meant by risk and how to plan for and avoid the worst.

There are so many opportunities for writers in this digital age and the world of publishing has evolved greatly over the last few years. Publishing is now accessible to all who have a good grasp of the English language and because the world is now a predominantly much smaller place through the rise of the digital era, it is possible to become published in many English speaking countries.

5. Successful Self-Publishing: Learn The Basics Of Self-Publishing

You’ve got a great idea for a book and you’ve started putting pen to paper (or fingers to keys) or you may have already finished it! How will you get it out into the world? You could hire a traditional publisher but you’ll lose creative control and royalties can be 7-25% per book sold (with 25% being on the incredibly generous end) or you can self-publish, keep total creative control and earn up to 70% of the royalties of each book. Tempted? Take this course and you’ll learn the skills needed in self-publishing your book – cover design and layout, proofing, publishing, distributing, and marketing.

The Successful Self-Publishing Certificate Course begins by guiding you through the basics of self-publishing. You’ll quickly get answers to the big questions, such as why you should self- publish and the benefits of doing so and, conversely, reasons self-publishing may not be for you. There are legal obligations you need to fulfil and to self-publish requires money, the course will talk you through what to expect in both these areas.

With your book written and your working title in place. This course will show you the process of finessing the details, large and small, to get your text ready for publication. You’ll learn the dos and don’ts of titling your book and what to include in your cover text, how to self-edit or hire and work with an editor, how to prepare your text for the layout process, and what the established conventions that you should use in book anatomy, are.

Formatting should be invisible, unnoticed by the reader, but done poorly and inconsistently and the smallest of errors will pull your readers from the story, ruining the content of your work. You’ll learn how to use layout to enable your content to flow – with proper use of book sizing, page layout, fonts, spacing and alignment of text. Formatting for eBooks is also covered.

We are taught the metaphor ‘never judge a book by its cover’ but when it comes to books – we do. When confronted by a wall or screen of book covers and all you have to go off, as a customer, is a title and a cover, you will find yourself quickly judging covers and titles – giving just seconds to each. From this course, you will learn the do’s and don’ts of book cover design, from colour theory, graphics and images to fonts, copy placement, formatting and reproduction, to ensure yours is the cover that stands out and the book that gets bought. Even if you intend to commission a designer to do the work for you this essential knowledge will give you everything you need to understand what is needed and to get the cover you want.

With your files ready and book complete you need to understand the process of printing the finished work. The Successful Self-Publishing Certificate Course walks you through production, including the different printing methods available and how to convert your book into an eBook. It also stresses the importance of proofreading, how to proofread, and the common conventions used by proofreaders, should you choose to hire one.

Where many self-publishers fail is through not fully understanding distribution, because it doesn’t matter how good your book is, if no one can buy it you’re not going to make any money and it’ll be back to the 9-5. This course provides the knowledge you need to successfully get your book into bookshops, work with distributors and wholesalers, and price your book effectively for both printed and eBook versions.

You’ve published a book – don’t forget to tell people about it! Though before you publish, you need to have a marketing plan in place that will fit the content of your book. You’ll learn how to make sure your book is accurately represented in online bookstores and how to use tools such as social media, YouTube trailers, paid-for advertising, and mailing lists to promote and sell your book. You’ll also discover how to carry your marketing efforts on after publishing and through to your second book.

Who would benefit from this course?

You’ve written, or are in the process of writing, a book and want to publish it yourself, rather than work rely on a publisher, what do you do? This course outlines all the tasks involved and the skills needed to succeed in self-publishing a book.

If you’re intending on becoming a publisher yourself, the Successful Self-Publishing Certificate Course provides a comprehensive overview of the entire process – giving you a great foundational knowledge to build upon with further, degree-level education.

6. Graphic Design: Beginner's Guide To Graphic Design 

Requiring no prerequisite knowledge, the Graphic Design Course provides you with all the information you need to get started in this creative industry. You’ll gain an understanding of the history, theories, practices and principles of the topic, and even be guided through taking on paid work as a freelancer or through your own business.

To understand where graphic design is now, you first need to take a step back to appreciate where it has been. You will be guided through the history of graphic and industrial design, learning about key personalities and moments, and how they helped to form the modern approach to design.

Good graphic design is governed by certain theories and laws, such as colour theory, the role and use of grids, typography and much more. The Graphic Design Course takes you through these fundamentals and the basic elements that make up the practice.

Putting the theory to practical use, the course explains the tools, skills and knowledge that good graphic designers must develop. A big part of the early stages of the creative process involves making quick sketches and then more finished drawings. You will learn the importance of developing good drawing skills, the difference between sketching and drawing (understanding when each is appropriate) and how to make drawing easier by separating elements into simplified forms that you can build upon.

An understanding of letterforms is one of the most important skills for a graphic designer to possess. This course outlines the difference between typography, lettering, and calligraphy and provides step-by-step guidance on drawing calligraphy and adjusting letterforms with typography.

Having learnt about the basics of individual design elements – colour, shape, texture, space, and form, the Graphic Design Course expands on each area, explaining their individual importance.

9. 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.

10. Project Management: Learn How To Be An Effective Project Manager

The role of a project manager is multifarious. You’ll lead teams on diverse projects – steering them from start to finish, elevate your career prospects and provide tangible value, adapt to changes and be constantly learning, never be bored in your job and be well-paid to do it. We’re going to help you get there with this incredibly detailed course, which examines the knowledge, skills, tools, and techniques you need to know to be an effective project manager.

The course introduces the subject by jumping straight into explaining the role of a project manager, the range of methodologies they use, and an outline of the processes and knowledge necessary to be successful. You’ll learn about approaches to project management, including the traditional approach, the PRINCE2 Process Model, and Critical Chain Project Management (CCPM), amongst others. You’ll be shown how to breakdown the lifecycle of a project into phases to give your efforts structure and simplify them into a series of logical and manageable steps.

You will learn about the concepts and tools, both manual and software-based, that effective project managers use to accomplish tasks and execute responsibilities, including how to use Program Evaluation Review Technique (PERT) and Gantt Charts. You’ll explore the various ways in which a project’s team is put together and organised depending on the requirements of the company and the project, the various typical roles within a team, and how to create a hierarchy of team members.

Having been shown briefly how to create a project life cycle in the introduction to the course, you are later shown this process in much greater depth. You’ll discover how every project is separated into five smaller processes or phases that are tailored to the needs of the project and which make up a project lifecycle. Each of these five processes is covered in incredible depth to give a comprehensive understanding of their purpose within the lifecycle. The phases discussed are Initiation and Planning, Processes: Execution, Monitoring and Controlling, Change Management, and Closure.

To ensure that the aim of a project is achieved as efficiently as is practicably possible requires proper coordination of processes and activities, this is known as Project Integration Management and is examined and described fully in this course. You’ll learn about what the role entails and the steps to take and processes to follow to be effective in the position and how to develop and incorporate and action and monitor a project management plan using proven methodologies.

Time, cost, and quality are a trio of variables that must be planned in from the beginning and tracked all the way through to the closure of a project, helping you to adjust resources as necessary throughout. The Project Management Course guides you through the tools and techniques used to ensure you stay on top of these important areas.

Critical to the success of any project and the most important resource at your disposal, is the people working on it – the project team. Projects get done by people, not by tools, techniques or technology and you’ll learn the considerations you need to make to ensure you get the best people onboard. One of the biggest downfalls of projects is not considering and preparing for any risks that will inevitably arise. You’ll learn to understand what is meant by risk and how to plan for and avoid the worst.
