Best Step-By-Step "BIZ BLUEPRINT" Course?

by GS12
44 replies
What are some great suggestions on an Online Course that gives you a step-by-step blueprint on creating a revenue-generating online business for a noob?

By the end of the course, I want to have an up and running business with revenue.

Doesn't matter what business model (eg. ecommerce, social media, etc)

Just something that gives practical and actionable advice step-by-step?

What are your thoughts on the business models that TEACH you to be an Entreprenuer as an "Entrepreneur School" so to speak?

Eg. Secret Entourage is a paid membership and sells info products on making money online. It's not a personal brand like Tai Lopez selling you a course, it's almost like an "online college" that sells a variety of "Courses".

Any other examples of these like Secret Entourage?

    If they're secret, how would we know?

    Seriously, giving a "course" some fancy name is just a marketing twist. Look a little deeper and you'll likely find just another MMO product - and there are tons of those.

    In my experience, true entrepreneurs are mostly self-taught.

    Could be somewhat helpful but for me and many other entrepreneurs, learning your niche through practice, developing skills, creating value and building bonds is the way to go....and oh yes; learning from experience is hands down the best way to make these lessons stick. A course could step you through dealing with an angry client; feeling the emotions of doing so in a real world setting paints quite the different picture and offers you a lesson you will remember forever.

    Many courses promise this outcome. Few deliver.

    Best to set your expectations a bit lower. If all people had to do was take a course to have an income producing business, that's what everyone would do. The reason why everyone doesn't do it, is because they know better than to believe the claims.

    Proceed with caution and watch out for falling pie from the sky.

    Here's the problem with a step by step program.

    Let's say you buy such a program and the audience they promoted to was mothers with young babies. You decide to follow their plan but your audience is men over fifty who ride motorcycles. Do you think the ready made sales templates they give you are going to work?

    That's why you need to learn principles and skills not just copy someone else's model.

    Or say you want to sell t-shirts to middle age women who love rock and roll. (me). A course on how to set up an ecommerce store will tell the technical end of the equation but they might not how know how to track us old rockin' biddies down. So the last part of the business model is left out.

    Even if you find a step by step product, the market and the tech is all going to change quickly. As an entrepreneur you're going to need to know how to do your own research, find your own answers, and make the needed changes to keep your business going.

    If you want step by step directions a job is a better option.

    As optedin has already said, you'll find many people who will tell you this is what they're selling you. Rarely will it work out that way in the long run.

    I would check my local library first and start with:

    Copywriting:

    Influence:The Psychology of Persuasion by Cialdini

    Tested Advertising Methods by Caples

    Sales mastery:

    The Psychology of Selling by Brian Tracy

    Secrets of Closing the Sale by Zig Ziglar

    You may wonder why I would recommend a few dusty old works from the past? well, you'll just have to read them to find out...

    GS12,


    Sorry to disappoint you, but your expectation about "an up and running business with revenue" as the result of buying an online course is totally unrealistic.


    If you want to have a "going" business, I suggest you purchase one that has a proven and consistent revenue stream already. Why?


    Because with any course or book or video on business creation, you're still going to have to implement what you learn and grow your business from scratch.


    No offense meant, but you've been a member here since 2012 and you're still asking beginner questions. It seems to me, that if you were serious about this and one who can rapidly implement, you should already have a business in place by now.


    Make sense? Again, I'm not picking on you personally, I am just suggesting to anyone that reads this thread . . . that regardless of the training you receive, you still have to work to implement everything necessary in order to have an ongoing business including setting everything up, getting regular traffic flowing, having things to sell, being able to take payments, deliver the goods, etc.


    There is no lack of education online for those that seek it. What is lacking are people that can implement, adapt, and apply what they learn online to their own particular chosen marketplace and sales model.


    The very best to you,


    Steve

    Hmmmm....virtually all good courses offer information to build an up and running business with revenue in the future but you need to finish the course, take notes, and put the notes into action for months to yield some sweet revenue.

    The course is the blueprint and diligent, persistent study and work creates the successful business and income. Just something to keep in mind as you shop.

    Good suggestion up top; just click the links in sig files of helpful folks on Warrior. If they generously offer help for free, rest assured their courses should rock too.

    Aff Playbook is my fav. I've been working with them since they opened (2009), I guess the thing I really like about them is they push you to focus on the long term and not short term strategies that will get you banned or earnings revoked.

    Another decent one is STM, but costs a fair bit more.

    It seems to be something popping up, I have challenges around this as I find it's more of a mindset and problem solving ability than hard skills, but maybe I'm wrong...

    What about actually doing this business model yourself instead of being a customer of it? I'm considering doing it.

    Creating an "Entrepreneur Education Platform" where you can be a hub of successful entrepreneurs' sharing their advice and selling their endorsed courses at a high price tag.

    Seems like a BIG $ maker! Especially when you aren't successful yourself, you can just be the person that connects the Successful Authorities to a Hungry Audience!

    Guys! Thanks. I don't EXPECT to have a magical business up and running after the blueprint course.

    I simply want to follow and put in the WORk from the blueprint actions.

    Surely there's an all in one step by step course to make $ online that I can follow?

    I will surely do the work, but I feel a Course will speed up the process of making mistake after mistake as a beginner.

    Yes, there are many hundreds. The problem is your desire to have a money-making business after completing one, is a pipe dream. It will probably take quite a long time of concerted effort to reach a point where you can live off of the amount of income you will generate. Most never reach that point at all.

    You don't seem willing to accept that reality and are acting as if we are holding something back from you that's preventing you from reaching your goal.

    That's simply, not true. We're giving you the straight scoop. It's up to you as to whether you will accept it, or not. No matter how many times you protest reality, that will never change it. It is, what it is,

    No such thing. You may have heard "The map is not the territory." No one can give you a template that will work 100% of the time.

    A big part of why is the BS you bring to the work in your own thinking and beliefs. Every business is a reflection of its owner.

    Also, on a purely skills-based level, what the course creator believes is 'easy' may be really hard or even next to impossible for you. They "just do it" whereas you have to figure it out from scratch. They may even build in "Duh, everyone knows this" moments where it's obvious to them what to do...but to a newbie, no chance of ever even spotting what the missing link might be.

    My advice is to get a job in the field you want...see how they do it...what you like and don't like...and then start your own experiment. Because that's what it is.

    Hi guys, I am planning an "Entrepreneur Education Platform" that sells $497+ Online MMO Courses backed by successful Authorities in the niche of each course.

    Below is my process to make each course happen!

    1) Create Course - I will simply get inspired from an Existing Course in a specific MMO niche (eg. Dropshipping) and create my own on Thinkific.

    2) Authority - I get a successful entrepreneur in the space who would accept to be "The Face" of the course as "The Instructor" to create the Credibility factor. In return, they will get a % of revenue (Just like MasterClass gives celebrities 30% of the revenue from their Celebrity Courses). Additionally, they will get a personal brand boost as they now are the face of an online course. And I will also do all of the product development, majority of sales/marketing, customer service, etc for them.

    3) Sell - Me and the Authority will sell the online course to his list and my traffic.

    *I will drive traffic to my website through a blog + paid traffic + other avenues.

    *Authority drives traffic through their social, list, etc

    Let me know your thoughts on this business model please. Pros, cons, etc.

      It will be interesting to see how many authority figures who already have their own followers and brands will agree to this. Wouldn't they already be selling their own courses where they make all the profit?

      I don't say that to be snarky but I'm honestly curious to see how it goes. Keep us updated.

        Tell you what Rose? I'll be the Warrior Guinea Pig for this idea and let you guys know how it goes. I'm young and dumb to be honest, so I have time

        I reckon they would, because Foundr.com is doing it and splitting revenues. Also, Udemy has experts that publish their own courses on their for Udemy to market to their audience and splits revenues. In fact, I've heard Udemy takes like 50% if the customer is found through Udemy's own marketing! Then you also have the concept of people always selling Affiliate Products to their lists (this includes Online Courses too).

        So, while the Authority may already have a course.. this is a turn key solution for them to sell another course without creating one themselves which would take lots of time. Why not just review it, tweak it a little, and endorse it? Whilst I do all the work. if they don't have a course, well I provide value by introducing them into the world of courses!

        Anywho, let's see how we go. I'm sure I can get 1 in 100 successful B or C-List entrepreneurs to say yes at least !

    Guys! Thanks. I don't EXPECT to have a magical business up and running after the blueprint course.

    That's good cause it probably ain't gonna happen that way! The problem with most blueprint type info product is that the author is either too inexperienced to anticipate the landminds littering the field or their an experienced and unethical gooroo wannabe and purposely leave out vital information that will negatively affect YOUR results.

    Example, I purchased a product who's training and support materials was top notch, the stuff was so good I could'nt believe how low the price was. Now for the punch line, a couple of weeks after purchase, google implements a planned change that makes the method in the course completely obsolete! Do you think the product creator knew what was coming?


    I simply want to follow and put in the WORk from the blueprint actions.


    If your ready to work, heres a blueprint for you.

    Pick a niche, any niche, fire up your keyboard, write a couple of sample articles and then head over to warriors for hire, ********** and digital point forum's and pay to run ads advertising your article writing services, if you go for the up-sell, I will include a gazillion PLR article pack and show you how to outsource the rewrites, all hands off of course....

    I just saved you $39 bucks...your welcome!



    Surely there's an all in one step by step course to make $ online that I can follow?

    Maybe, but that wouldn't be a blueprint, it would be an education. Only in internetmarketingland does anyone think they can read a 20 page 'report' (read long article)_ and master a subject to the point of replacing their current income...cause you don't just wanna make "some" $ online, you want to make enough to live on...right?


    I will surely do the work, but I feel a Course will speed up the process of making mistake after mistake as a beginner.


    Maybe, but i have found that experience is the best teacher.

      Dude look at my post above. I need your advice on that please. maybe that's smarter! Being the HUB!

      Go to foundr.com and you'll see they do the same thing: Blog + Paid membership + Courses endorsed by expert entrepreneurs.

      Secret Entourage does the exact same thing too.

      My only issue is building up an audience after 3-6 months as that may take time.. but then again Im young and tech savvy so I can get viral growth from social media pretty easily too.

      I just don't know if I can become a dominant leading entrepreneur media publication ..

        And you never will know until you make a concerted effort to learn all you can, implement it competently and work at building and marketing it, diligently.

        Wouldn't it be nice if we all could determine what the future holds for us, simply by thinking about it.

        If you're serious about wanting to achieve that goal, take action, NOW!!! Every minute wasted is gone, forever.

        Dude, you have added more information since the original post.

        I can't predict your future. Or the future success of any products you launch.

        I went through your other postings on the forum and I see that you built a successful startup, draw from that experience.

        You should already know that there aren't any shortcuts. If you are unsure of the way forward then pony up the dough and hire seasoned professionals that can answer your questions and offer recommendation about who to hire.

        Your concept seems doable, but considering your inexperience I would suggest building a strong team to execute.....

    May I suggest the business model DOES matter - the fact that you believe it does not is one of the common mistakes made by new business owners - I see it in the online world (where someone chases the next big opportunity and doesn't fully believe or have confidence in what they are doing) and I see it just as much offline where entrepreneurs get Millions from Venture Capital or Angel investors to start up a tech or consumer product business only to discover after 1-year in they absolutely hate or are in way over their head for that type of business.

    I would recommend you take the initiative (that's required to succeed as well), find the type of businesses and markets that appeal to you most where you (through self awareness) believe you can succeed and then go searching for programs, mentors and help once you are on your own path.

      *Donald Trump Voice* WRONG.

      I will frame myself as an Authority and they WILL slap their name + face on it IF:

      A) They like it (I wouldn't contact an authority who wouldn't align with my product)

      B) They see the saved convenience of selling it without making it (Time is a big asset)

      Most importantly, people do JVs all the time to sell other online courses as affiliates. So ha! Think about that man.

    Hi. following this thread too.
    Anik Singal (my favourit inbox marketer), developed such a platform.. but on his platform he combines.. Mindset related courses with Financial Education, and of course wih different business models. Between them.. his favourite: The Inbox Blueprint .. email marketing related.
    What i would have really liked to see would be a platform which embeds also some approximation related to the student expected expenses.. on each of the future courses levels.
    Becase as seen up till now.. these guys are just developing courses.. hiding everything related to the initial costs (besides the course's fees), which 1 person should actually have in order to get that system rolling..
    Another thing.. lived on my own skin: Until you don't have a minimum 20k$+ a top notch Mentor/ Ecomm guru.. stay away.. from the ecomm/ dropshipping courses (Shopify+ Aliexpress).. i've lost 10k$ last year.. while testing on my own different things. It's a very profitable animal but you can loose everything if you try it on your own. Not trying to promote anything here!

      You seem bitter and rude. I'm just a young guy trying to make it and live the American dream. You have this (tall poppy syndrome) Southern mentality compared to my ambitious Northener ambition. So I wouldn't be surprised that you're beating down my goals.

      What i would have really liked to see would be a platform which embeds also some approximation related to the student expected expenses.. on each of the future courses levels.
      Becase as seen up till now.. these guys are just developing courses.. hiding everything related to the initial costs (besides the course's fees), which 1 person should actually have in order to get that system rolling..
      Another thing.. lived on my own skin: Until you don't have a minimum 20k$+ a top notch Mentor/ Ecomm guru.. stay away.. from the ecomm/ dropshipping courses (Shopify+ Aliexpress).. i've lost 10k$ last year.. while testing on my own different things. It's a very profitable animal but you can loose everything if you try it on your own. Not trying to promote anything here! It just does not compare with the aff mkting / cpa and other online business models initial costs.

      Tell you what? In my courses, I'm going to include all the costs in each chapter. I agree with you that these gurus don't specify the costs.

      I see there's 2 main ways to get REALLY rich on the internet:

      1) Authority - Build an authority via content marketing, social marketing, etc and 3-6 months later you can scale your Online Courses + Paid Memberships + Consulting + more.

      2) Funnel Hacking - Copy and re-model an existing successful business model and copy their funnel quickly via ClickFunnels. You can do this with: eCommerce, Dropshipping, whatever.


      --

      My question to you is.. why didn't you just copy a successful drop shipping store entirely with your $20K instead of trying to re-create the wheel? You should of copied them design for design (and then changed colors perhaps) and copied them word for word (and then paraphrased). Then run similar ads to the same audience. Simple my man.

      JFC (JUST ******* COPY) is my motto. It seriously works, dude.

        That comment says more about you than it does me.

        I'm just a young guy trying to make it and live the American dream.
        I'm just an old guy trying to give you a small dose of reality.

        You have this (tall poppy syndrome) Southern mentality compared to my ambitious Northener ambition.
        lol. Right. I'm a Philly boy that spent 20 years in Manhattan and has at least been around the world, once. The only "South" I know are South Philly and the South Bronx. :-) Where have you been? What have you done?

        So I wouldn't be surprised that you're beating down my goals.
        Besides being incredibly defensive, you see things that aren't there. Please point to the sentence where I, "beat down your goals." Again, the worst you can accuse me of is being the voice of reason. You should be willing to accept that without complaint.

        Now, the question becomes, when are you going to stop yakin' and start acting?

        Generation Y is the future of wealth creation. And we do it fast. Run the numbers. My strategy works, man.
        What strategy? You've done nothing, but talk a good game. Let's see something tangible - that's working. We're all waiting. If "your" strategy works so well, when are you going to implement it and become rich? I can answer for that if you like. :-) Hint: It's a one word answer.

        Do you have any idea how many thousands of people that have shown up here full of bluster and bravado, thinking they had the greatest idea since sliced bread, did nothing but try to convince others how different and better they were than everyone that came before them - never to be seen again?

        Dude, talk is cheap. You claim to be a New Yorker. Act like it. You might not be old enough to know what that means, or worse, you must live on the Upper East Side - or maybe Park Slope. lol

        Really? If it actually did, we'd all just simply ******* copy and we'd all be filthy ******* rich.

    Following a blueprint is not really a good idea. However, it is always good to see a good working model and try to replicate it with your own twists, ideas and content.

    There are tonnes of great (and realy bad) courses out there.

    It really depends on what you want to do. I'd stick to only one though. Otherwise you might end up getting overwhelemed, which is EXTREMELY easy to do.

    Not sure if I answered your questions.

    As for Tai Lopez, I did not buy any of his products even though I subscribed to his list so I am not in the position to comment.

    Darren Ewert and Mike Dreher Marketing: betterlife.buzz, or achievefreedom.today.

    I know one family who has joined their program and they claim to be making up to $25,000/month.

    Not entirely sure what their system is, but they use Clickfunnels and some other tools. They claim that their system is 90% automated and they do facebook sales ad.

      Making as they "claim" $25k is an empty statement. Do they tell you what their profit is?

      How much do they spend on marketing etc to make $25k ?

      Making is vanity, profit is sanity

    Start a thread on your online trek, here: https://www.warriorforum.com/warrior-path/

    That's exactly what the OP needs to do - put those words into action. Test your theories and let other members follow along. Arguing based on what you think, believe, imagine - doesn't accomplish anything. Make a plan and follow it - keep a 'path' log of what you do and if you are successful you can package that 'case study' info as your own product.

    Here are my easy actionable steps:

    1. Find a niche that you have a passion / solution for with market demand as well

    2. Connect with your target audience within that niche like forums and FB groups

    3. Provide value as in content that answers any questions or doubts people may have in those platforms

    4. Set up your blog and FB group to funnel some of those people especially those who thanked and liked your posts as inviting them to check out.

    5. Continue to provide valuable information before sending them to your optin page and offer be it your own or other people's products you promote as affiliate.

    6. Follow up with them via autoresponder emails

    7. Rinse and repeat from Step 2.
