How do I create an online training/ coaching business?
Hi Everybody, another one that I hope you can help me with. I'm looking for a great online tool that can help me bring my courses online so I can reach a bigger audience. I was looking at webex but I find them rather expensive. What tool are you using and how do you market online coaching seminars/ sales workshops etc? The tool I'm looking for should have the capability to do online presentations, int. calls and/ or VoIP but also offer video conferencing. I would also need help with marketing my workshops so anybody interested in helping out can contact me and we set up a skype call to see how you can help.
I also searching help to grow my Online Coaching business in Treasury & Risk Management (Banking) Domain. I tried Linkedin & Facebook but still i am not getting that much response. I need help, how to grow my market. Please let me know if anyone can help.
There are definitely some expensive tools out there. The only tool I think is really a great fit for this sort of thing IS expensive. It's called Kajabi, and it's industry standard for offering online courses. Something to look at in the future, perhaps.
freescreensharing.com is free, allows you to customized your lobby and even promote someone else to presenter. We have been using it for 3.5 years now.
GoToWebinar is great, but if you are looking for preparing courses you can deliver with slide presentation or video which is not live, you can prepare your information via any format and produce it with Camtasia Studio. Camtasia does not allow for VoIP so you would have to use something like GoToWebinar to do this.
How you would best market these services really depends on who your niche market is and whether you will be using these productions as part of your sales package or using these as instruments to draw more people into your sales funnel.
Once people know what you have to offer and have attended some events without charge they have a better idea of what you can deliver and whether they will choose to pay for those services or not.
I suggest you offer both free introductory courses to grow your niche market and then paid courses for those interested in a more intensive learning experience.

Hi Carsten, I agree with Joe that GoToMeeting (which has GoToTraining, GoToWebinar and GoToMeeting) is a good tool to use for online training/coaching. http://www.gotomeeting.com/online/collaboration/training/
For marketing ideas, check out the book "Leading the Learning Revolution: The Expert's Guide to Capitalizing on the Exploding Lifelong Education Market" by Jeff Cobb. It's available on Amazon. There are also a lot of free resources on the author's website here: http://www.tagoras.com/resources/
Cheaper, join the Google affiliates. Upload your videos with topics you want to talk about on u-tube. Each time someone views your video, Google pays you for your service.
The tool selection depends upon following factors
1. If you can give some financial burden on participants?
2. You want to have a screen share or video chat or both? Though you have mentioned video but in my opinion, screen share is more useful for you.
3. What is the size of your one batch?
GotoMeetings seems a good tool from small to fairly large audience and free for participant. It provides screen share but not the video share.
