Thursday night was the first session in a series of live training webinars. It's by the 100k blueprint guys. It was billed as a "free live training and case study series". Over the course of the series, they would start from scratch and find a niche, do the keyword research and competition analysis, build a site, get traffic and rankings to generate revenue, then flip it. The purpose was to provide live training by going through all the steps 'live' so we could see exactly how they did it, while they explained all of the 'what' and 'why'.
It was supposed to be 1.5 hours, but went well over 2.5 hours. The beginning was a little slow, but I attribute that to all the stuff they went over in talking about how the series was going to be structured, etc.
The first session was about how to find opportunities - niches - and then do your initial keyword research and competition evaluation (something I'm particularly eager to do better).
The actual training was simply terrific. It's clear these guys still do this stuff themselves on a daily basis, and know exactly what to do. They were also very good at explaining why they did what they did at each step, things like why you would use this criteria at a particular step and not that, etc.
Some questions were taken during the actual training, but there was a Q and A segment afterwards that lasted over an hour. The questions were answered in great detail - some might have thought too much detail lol.
One of the most surprising things was that there was nothing for sale. In fact judging by who they sent the first announcement to, most of the people on the call were already customers. They did talk about a new training membership they plan to open in March, but you couldn't even sign up for it yet if you wanted - and many asked. Oh, and they gave away a Kindle!
It would be great if everyone who sold courses and 'how to' products also provided training, though for a $47 product, I don't see how that can be profitable. But, I'll take it!
I'm looking forward to the next session, and would be interested to hear from others who were on the call.
