By offering services specific to how much support someone requires and what their particular roadblocks are, we can get them to the point of actually making money online… which tends to keep them motivated to continue.
Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) July 29, 2009
The Internet Marketing Center® (IMC), the leader in providing Internet marketing training and knowledge products to entrepreneurs and small businesses, today announced the consolidation of its personal coaching services into a new Training Services Division.
US Department of Labor and Census Bureau statistics* show a growing number of "micro businesses" and one-person businesses being created in the US. Computers and the Internet make it possible to start an online business much faster and at a fraction of the cost compared to the typical brick-and-mortar business.
Since 2005, the Internet Marketing Center has created a range of programs that have enabled clients to start an ebusiness and make money online with direct guidance from the company's team of marketing experts. Training Services staff are all entrepreneurs who have successfully built their own online businesses.
In all, over 3,500 people have gone through the training programs, which begin with market research and take clients through every phase of starting and marketing a business online. The continual real-world business development done by the Training Services Division is also the basis for all of the company's other knowledge products and software, such as the Insider Secrets to Marketing Your Business on the Internet online course, and BeBiz online business-building software.
Director of Training Services Jim Kobialko says: "The step-by-step business-building process we teach is the foundation of our comprehensive suite of products and services. The Training Services Division creates even more value for our clients by addressing the major psychological barriers that our clients encounter during the process. In our experience, the three primary issues they face are:
- lack of accountability
- failing motivation
"Life can get in the way if you're trying to build something new -- especially if you're doing it in your spare time. With the motivation, encouragement, and accountability that the new Training Services Division provides, our clients will have the emotional support they need to succeed.
"By offering services specific to how much support someone requires and what their particular roadblocks are, we can get them to the point of actually making money online… which tends to keep them motivated to continue."
The Internet Marketing Center's Training Services programs are:
Six-month customized one-on-one mentoring via shared web interface (general Internet marketing or eBay) -- the majority of over 3,000 mentoring clients have had a working ecommerce website that's generating traffic and sales by the end of their six months
Five-day intensives, both in a classroom and remotely -- every client begins with market research and leaves with an ecommerce site up and attracting traffic
Six-month self-paced video-based certification course, where clients' work is evaluated to make sure they've reached a certain standard before they can pass on to the next step -- 100% of graduates have a site up and attracting traffic by the time they leave the program, with 60% of those already making sales
