Course Description


"The course is an excellent introductory online course with great website resources -- a much planned out route to a successful online business!!" – Renee Jenkins


Do you want to have a profitable online business running in the near future?

Or have you been spending lots of money attending classes to learn how to setup a profitable business online but something still seems to be missing?

If you answered YES, then this course is exactly what you need!

I have been teaching people how to start online businesses since 2008 and I discovered that most people are starting their online ventures the wrong way!

To this end, I invested 30 days to plan out this comprehensive course to educate and share with you my experiences in running online business all these years.

You will learn the $15,000 painful mistake my business friend made and the various hard truths in online marketing that most Instructors will not tell you upfront.

The key principle in my teaching is LEVERAGE.

You will not find in any part of this course that requires you to spend a lot of time and money on tools and software in order to create a professional website. In fact, you do not even need to have a website to get started!

If you have been running an online business for some time but are still lacking the results, perhaps this is the time for you to re-learn the valuable concepts and principles that I share in this course.

This introductory course contains a total of 8 sections detailing how you can launch different online business models in the comfort of your own home, using just a computer and an Internet connection.

Here are the key lessons that you will take away from this course:

  • What are the different types of online business models?
  • How much money is needed to start a profitable online business?
  • What are 4 most costly mistakes that you must avoid if you want to start an online business?
  • How to start selling physical and virtual products online?
  • How to start selling services online?
  • How to sell other people's products online?
  • How to sell advertisement space online?
  • How to scale your online business upwards?


"I think that you will find this Business Course as an AWESOME OPPORTUNITY! All of the information is very informative and as a guide can also help you to get started on easy marketing strategies that can create a possibility of multiple income streams." – Priscilla Robinson

Instructor Biography

KC Tan, Online Business Coach, Small Business Owner

In 2008, KC founded his first business, developing professional websites for business owners and helping them to market their websites online through search engines. Today, KC gets to do what he enjoys most, which is training – bringing his years of experiences and expertise to teach business owners and individuals on how to create their own websites and marketing them online.

Over the years, KC found that most people actually do not have much difficulty learning a new tool (say using WordPress to create a website). The real problem was that people often find themselves stuck or see no results because they simply had no idea what to use those newly acquired tools for!

This motivated KC to put even more focus on helping people to bridge this gap. KC believes that everyone has something so valuable in them that other people would want to learn from. The challenge is most people do not have a system to package and sell their knowledge. KC aims to equip everyone with the skill of turning what you know into something that people is willing to pay them for.

KC specializes in the areas of Search Engine Optimization, WordPress and eCommerce. He has extensive training experience and has conducted training courses for organizations including Singapore Compact CSR, Singapore Polytechnic, National University of Singapore Society (NUSS), Civil Service Club, JobsCentral Portal, CareerMinded and Singapore Business Federation (SBF). KC's entrepreneurial journey has also been featured in the book – “Are You Ready To Be The Next Entrepreneur?" – showcasing more than 30 successful stories of aspiring entrepreneurs!
