I’ve Searched High And Low To Find The Best Small Business Training Programs To Help You To…
1) Attract More Leads
2) Convert More Customers
3) And Keep Selling To Customers For Longer
While I believe that one-to-one coaching is the best way for business owners to work towards building the businesses they’ve always wanted, I recognise that not everyone wants to work with a coach.
The next most effective way to improve is to tap into the best training designed for small business owners.
Since I became self employed in 1995 I’ve spent thousands of hours and tens of thousands of dollars researching the ideas and advice given by other business experts.
You can benefit from this experience.
Below I recommend the best training programs I’ve found for business owners who want to move their businesses forward without working with a coach. This training will help if you later decide that you want one-to-one coaching after all.
For Business Owners Who Sell Online And Offline
I recommend Income Before You Buy with Adrian Ulsh (affiliate link)
This is the best deal I know about for small business training and I strongly recommend that you give it a try.
If you are a consultant, coach or own a small professional services firm, I also recommend the Momentum Club from Ian Brodie.
This is specialist marketing and sales training for services that can be more difficult than most to sell because they are intangible and can’t been seen or touched before buying.
For Business Owners Who Sell Offline
I recommend the Small Business Growth Club from Scott Hallman (affiliate link)
This is a very focused training program that excels in giving you a detailed guide to what you have to do and why and then goes on to break each customer generation or profit improvement strategy into step by step instructions that tells you exactly what to do.
For many years this was my #1 recommendation for business training but it has become more expensive and its competition has increased. It is still highly recommended and to be honest, it is the first course I go back to when I want to refresh my skills.
For Business Owners Who Sell Online
The rapid speed of change in online marketing makes it important to keep up-to-date.
I recommend two training programs where the emphasis is very different.
If you’re struggling with mindset issues and the overall strategy for online marketing, then the Founders Club from Rich Schefren.
If you want more tactical advice about what works to get more traffic from the various sources and to build your list and convert that initial interest into sales, I haven’t seen anything better than Digital Marketer Lab from Ryan Deiss.
Either go straight to the sales page for the Digital Marketer Lab (affiliate link) or read my detailed review of Digital Marketer Lab.
These two programs compliment each other very well.
To Summarise What I Believe Are The Best Training Programs To Help You To Grow Your Business
Income Before You Buy – for small businesses that trade online and offline
Momentum Club – for professional service providers who sell online and offline
Small Business Growth Club – for small businesses who mainly sell offline
Founders Club – for Internet entrepreneurs who struggle with the mindset and strategy issues.
Digital Marketer Lab – for Internet entrepreneurs who need tactical advice to get more traffic, opt-ins and sales conversions
The links take you directly to the appropriate sales page through affiliate links.
Please don’t join any more than two of these at any one time. You will be overwhelmed and you won’t be able to process the training and implement the ideas.
There’s a time for learning and a time for earning.
I believe that most business owners should spend about 10% of their time learning about new ideas and how to apply them. 90% of the time should be focused on taking the necessary actions to operate and improve your business.
