This course is not about internet marketing. Many newsletter courses focus on how to monetize free newsletters or create elaborate membership programs using traffic-generating strategies. This course is different. I'm going to show you how to make money from small paid newsletter subscriptions. It's a simple business to set up and run. 

I'll show you what kinds of topics sell as newsletter subscriptions, how to turn your interests and expertise into a paid newsletter, and how to write newsletters that have enough value that people will want to stay subscribed.

You'll see how easy it is to create from $1,000/month to $6,000/month. Consider that even something as simple as getting 10 subscribers per month means you'll have 120 subscribers after a year. Do the math with different newsletter prices, and you'll see how quickly it can add up.

Who is this course for? 

If you have a burning desire to create a recurring income, improve the lives of other people, and work from home, then this course is for you. If you love to coach, teach, lead, or mentor, then this course is for you. And if you don't want a lot of complexity, but still want to have a recurring online income, then this course is for you.

I set the course expertise level at basic, because I provide enough information for someone with no internet business experience to be able to use it. But if you already have some internet marketing expertise, then you can skim over the technical aspects of internet business, focusing mainly on the topics, writing, and designing segments.The course objective

The course consists of about 2 hours of recorded material. With pauses to complete assignments, you may need between 2 weeks and 1 month to implement everything, including writing your newsletters and marketing them. This is not a skills is a business development course.

Who is the target audience?
  • Anyone can create a newsletter with the help of inexpensive editors and other resources online. I'll show you how.
  • Create newsletters you're passionate about, and then use those newsletters to touch other people's lives in a way that transforms them, while being profitable for you.
  • The business will take 1-3 weeks to set up, but very little time once running (2-4 days/month). The model can be repeated with other newsletters.
  • You do not need to be an expert in your newsletter topic. There are many ways to generate high-level content. I'll show you how.
  • You will not need technical skills to create your newsletter. You can provide content to online resources and have the newsletter created for you with your content.
