Course Description

In this course, you will learn how to create whiteboard animations that will boosts your sales, like the one I made to promote this course. Why? Because whiteboard animations are a highly popular marketing/advertising tool right now.

They keep the audience engaged.

It's predicted by 2015, 90 percent of web traffic will be watching video, and this is why you need a video to engage your audience so they buy more products from you. Whiteboard animations do just that.

The problem is, they cost $100 a minute to have someone make one for you.

This is why you want to take this course and learn how to create your own, without even needing to draw, but if you can draw, then this course will also teach you how to draw them and make good money doing so.

It's a huge market right now.

It will only take you 9 hours to complete this course. That may seem like a lot of time, but you learn everything you need to know in order to create whiteboard animations and how to properly market them, such as how to use Youtube. The hour and a half long video about how to use Youtube to get more business is worth the price of this course alone. Honestly.

And for artists, I show you extra ways to earn money by making custom whiteboard animations. You learn where to find jobs, and more than one place.

If you can’t draw, that’s okay. I got you covered. I show you where to find artists to hire without hurting your pocket. I also give you a free resource with over 300,000 completely free, ready to drop and use whiteboard animated drawings, plus a zip file of custom whiteboard animations I drew.

So take this course if you need to drive more traffic to your site, courses, and sell more products.

Instructor Biography

Neil Fontaine, Art Instructor-Comic Artist-writer

I'm a best selling author on Amazon for "How to Draw Awesome Figures."

I studied art at different schools, one of them being a community college in San Jose, Ca. Over the years, subjects in art finally clicked. I teach these subjects in ways that make it easy to grasp. It's hard to brag about myself, but students have written me emails saying how they have learned more from me than they did in art schools, art schools such as Academy of Arts in San Franscico. That blew my mind because it's supposed to be a great school.

I'm also a writer that has sold novels.
