Why Every Creative Entrepreneur Should Take Creative Live Classes

Why Every Creative Entrepreneur Should Take Creative Live Classes

Finding inexpensive resources and classes that are actually worth your while, and do not leave you feeling like you have been ripped off, are hard to find. Some classes offered to newbie marketers, and entrepreneurs try to talk you into spending a lot of money upfront, enticing you that only through them can you learn the ins-and-outs of online business.

No matter if you are a creative person, with a crafting business, an artist, wanting to monetize your creations, or a small business owner, who is looking to increase their abilities on social media, Creative Live has an inexpensive, and comprehensive class for you.

Classes are available in the following categories: 

  1. Photo & Video
  2. Art & Design
  3. Music & Audio
  4. Craft & Maker
  5. Money & Life

There are plenty of classes available to choose from in each of these categories. Also, via special offers, bundles, and promotions, it is easy to save quite a bit on the individual courses, which is especially wonderful when you are on a tight budget, or are new to the platform, and want to learn more without a pricey commitment.

Each course is given in video format by a very qualified instructor in their field, ranging from Lawyers to established entrepreneurs, bloggers and creative professionals. Courses often include printable resources, but that is up to the individual instructor, as well as the subject matter. You have the option to download your purchased courses or stream them on your PC or mobile device.

What I also love about the courses is that you have the opportunity to upload your coursework, sharing with other students and the instructors what you have learned throughout the given course. I like to see what other students have shared, and often find that an inspiration for my own work, or progress.

Creative Live” also offers a daily live stream of classes. If you want to get a feel for the classes offered without spending any money, you can easily watch an entire class or a section of a class live throughout the day. The website makes it easy to see which courses are scheduled to be broadcasted when, and from which instructor.

My favorite courses so far – from the ones I have taken were on Social Media Graphics, as well as on Pinterest Marketing. I will be sharing with you a detailed review of these particular classes soon, so you can see if they are a great fit for you and your business needs.

Here are some examples of classes offered throughout this month:

  1. Sell More With Instagram by Sue B. Zimmerman
  2. How Billionaires, Icons, and World-Class Performers Master Productivity by Tim Ferriss 
  3. Effective Email And Newsletter Marketing by Jeff Goins
  4. How To Create Digital Products That Sell While You Sleep by April Bowles-Olin 
  5. Optimize Your Online Store by Andrea Ayers 

 

I am happy that I chose to purchase some of these courses, and will continue to get more courses as they come up. With this ever-growing content and the highly engaged instructors, I can only recommend Creative Live for the majority of your online business needs.

What Is Fizzle – An Insider Review

What Is Fizzle - A Insider Review

Interested in learning more about creating a viable online business? Finding answers to the questions that arise when beginning in the development such business is not always easy, and requires research and time. Fizzle.co can help you answer those questions, and build a solid foundation to build your idea from. But what is Fizzle exactly, and how can it help you on your journey? I have tried the platform out for you, and taken many of the offered lessons, to give you an insight.

What Is Fizzle?
Fizzle is a learning platform, accountability space, and active forum designed to help those who are in different phases of developing an online business, no matter which form this business takes.

Pro:
If you are a visual learner but love following along with worksheets and checklists, Fizzle offers both. The entertaining videos, are very informative and up-to-date (unlike some of its competitors), and in-depth, building
upon each other. The often included PDF’s and worksheets are well designed and get straight to the point. There is not much fluff there, which is, in my opinion, a waste of time, anyway. I am someone who is action oriented, and Fizzle is as well, therefore it is perfect for someone who wants to take massive actions in their business creation.

The dashboard and interface of the site are easy to navigate. The forum is in contrast to the dashboard light, and welcomingly bright. I like that the founders of the program seem to be active on the platform as well, and are open to answering any question you might have.

What is Fizzle

Unlike Wealthy Affiliate, Fizzle is not limited in subject matter to just affiliate marketing. This platform is applicable for every form of internet-based business, from selling your own product, to drop shipping to affiliate marketing, blogging, or whatever else you can come up with. I love that.

What I also love is, that lessons from true entrepreneur giants, like Pat Flynn are included. Exclusive content on email marketing, building traffic, and network building are what keep me coming back, as well as the constant new lessons, that are added.  at 35 Dollars a month – after a 30 Day free trial – the platform is worth every penny.

What is Fizzle
Con’s
Unlike Wealthy Affiliate, Fizzle does not include hosting, and it is a lot less social, because the forum is kept separated from the lessons, while in WA it is all integrated, and connection happens within the lessons, on the personal blog posts, and via questions asked. This can be both a negative and positive side, depending on what kind of learner you are. If you easily sidetracked, Fizzle is easier for you to stay focused upon.
Another thing, that is a small downfall of Fizzle, is that they only offer a down-scaled version of an affiliate program. You can not make any money referring people to Fizzle, but you do get a discount on your membership, for each referral, which is nice.
Wealthy Affiliate, on the other hand, allows you to make money from each new premium subscriber, for the time of their membership. This can add up quickly.

Conclusion

I really like Fizzle, because of the less distractive nature of the platform. I am there to learn, and only have to socialize when I want to. Yet, there is peer support, and accountability if you are looking for them, available anytime. That alone is nice to know, even if you are not taking advantage of that often.  If this platform would offer hosting like Wealthy Affiliate had, I would switch completely to that program. I am not new to internet business, so Fizzle offers me more flexibility while keeping me interested and challenged. That is something Wealthy Affiliate lacks at times.

So, if you already have reliable hosting, and are looking for great lessons on how to build your business, you should give Fizzle a try. You can start your free trial by following this link.
