Why was Be Boss Online developed?
When training and working with thousands of small business owners and entrepreneurs, we always made a point to ask: “What other types of trainings would you like to see?” More often than not some form of digital marketing training was requested. We began to develop one-hour sessions and the response was overwhelming. They wanted more. So we developed a full course to meet their needs.
Do you require instructors to attend a training event?
We do not require your instructors to attend an online training event. We recognize that different people have different skill sets and industry knowledge. However, we do encourage all instructors to join an online training event where we will review the content and answer questions. All slide decks have extensive notes and we are available to answer questions as needed.
How long does it take to receive the material once I place my order?
Once your order is complete you will be directed to a members only section of the website, where you will be able to download the material immediately.
What do small business owners say after taking Be Boss Online?
Our participants have given us great reviews in our post-course survey.
“The class revealed several misconceptions about online marketing, i.e.: targeting, timing, etc. It also clarified issues and created discussion and networking opportunities among the attendees.”
“Business has at least doubled ...”
“Friendly, informative and great detail on a necessary topic for every business.”
“This class has helped me to understand how important a presence on social media is to my company, also inexpensive.”
“Should be mandatory for all small business owners.”
“Really helped us to expand on our marketing plan.”
I am not good with digital marketing. How will I ever be able to teach someone else how to do it?
We recognize not everyone is a digital marketing expert. With Be Boss Online, we have taken complicated topics and broken them down into easy-to-understand slides with extensive notes to help the presenter. We also offer online training sessions and will spend as much time as needed to help you feel comfortable with the material. If a question arises in your training you can’t answer, you can always reach out to the staff at Be Boss Online. We are ready to help.
My clients have different needs. Can this course be customizable to meet those needs?
Absolutely. This curriculum can be presented a number of ways — from four group classes that last three hours, to one- to two-hour group classes, to one-on-one technical assistance. You will have the opportunity to download individual modules, or the full three-hour course.
What happens when something changes in the digital marketing world? Will this program be out-of-date?
We know how rapidly this industry can pivot. For this reason, we provide updates regularly (typically quarterly but more often if needed). You will be notified when a new update is released and you can then download the updated slide decks. All updates for the first year are included with the package price. There is an additional charge after year one to continue receiving updates. See pricing for details.
If I have questions about the curriculum, is there someone I can talk to?
Yes! You can always email the staff at Be Boss Online and you can also utilize our private Facebook group called The Hive. This is where we can discuss our successes and struggles, we can find better ways to help our clients grow their businesses and be more successful.
My clients are not computer savvy. Will this curriculum be too difficult for them to understand and implement?
The course modules are identified as beginner, intermediate and advanced based on the skills necessary to complete them. We recognize our participants are all starting at different levels, but they all can learn something to help grow their business. We have trained people who struggle to use email and we have trained people who work daily with digital marketing and manage multiple accounts. They were all able to learn something through Be Boss Online.
