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.
Google and even now facebooks offer some of the tools your are describing. Oloo can do the same things as well. There are a lot of useful tools in the app stores and see what is there also.
Hi Carsten, the people that are best on online coaching that I am using are called adeptio.com. Everything is done online, you can schedule meetings, and do everything a coach does on line...hope this helps.
If you're going to "go to the masses" with your training, record it and put it up on a membership site. If you need to do one-on-one coaching, you can do that a lot of ways at very low cost.
Also, depending on the quality you need for your presentations and coaching, you can use something linke YouTube Live Events. There are ways to make these events "private" through G+ Community memberships and permissions related to your YouTube channel.
You are right there are a number of different platforms for doing instructor led training online. We employed this only for a short time as it still requires us and the client to find a share time.
We have since then employed an online training platform to allow small business owners to access our training 24 x 7 - 365 via either an LMS (Learning Management System). We are currently testing a WordPress LMS plugin that has turned our blog into a full-scale training platform. Still working out the kinks, but happy to speak with anyone once we have it up and operational on how to deploy such a strategy.
There are a number of options to do this I am actually working on a virtual training platform which allows you to track train and communicate with whoever you have utilizing it. Not only that but it has a revenue and application model that is completely subjective to your needs. Aside from that I myself hold conferencing seminars etc. If you would like to discuss this in more detail feel free to contact me.
Uh, webinars are not = online training.
You want to get connected with the American Society for Training & Development, which is this planet's association for training (not sure of other planets). www.TD.org
The first question, the big question is why online? If you're doing live webinars, using whatever service, then you're putting the same energy and time in, as doing live work.
And live is 10,000x better for getting stuff to stick (learners practice, interact with others, and pay attention). How many webinar attendees are doing 3 or 4 other things while "attending"?
If you want digital training for your online coaching/training biz, webinars are, at best, lead gen tools.
I have a client that is using http://www.webinarjam.com/ seems pretty happen with it.
Many successful people I know use Instant teleseminar, http://instantteleseminar.com.
As far as creating and marketing your course, check out David Siteman Garland, here:
My impression was that he has some sound advice, and I've seen people I trust praise him wholeheartedly.
For live webinars I join.me. I also have researched anymeeting.com.
Anymeeting seems to have a better toolset for doing paid webinars
I've looked into siminar and Udemy, but those are different from what you are looking for. anymeeting.com looks promising
