You could buy a book on Internet marketing, but it could be out of date by the time you finish reading it.

Thrive Learning's curriculum covers many aspects of online business, including selling items on eBay, creating a product-based ecommerce site, supported by a dropship supplier, as well as making money via affiliate programs using content-based websites and blogs.
The system is designed to teach concepts in Internet business, and has gone through constant updates and two additional full revisions since its inception. "It's vital that any instructional program that deals with the Internet be completely up to date. That's one reason why online delivery makes so much more sense," said Thrive manager Jared Petersen, "You could buy a book on Internet marketing, but it could be out of date by the time you finish reading it."
The Thrive Learning Institute curriculum is designed to approach multiple learning styles, by delivering the information in many different ways. Petersen continued, "Students will read the steps, but can also see more visual tutorials, and watch click-by-click video clips to learn exactly how to accomplish the tasks. In addition, the system is designed to be guided by a one-on-one instructor over the phone." Further, Thrive Learning also provides a weekly podcast on breaking tech news and Internet marketing advice, for both students and non-students alike (http://thrivelearning.blogspot.com).
He went on to explain that since the concepts are divided in to small, actionable steps, it's much easier for students to immediately apply the concepts to their own home-based businesses, and begin making money as quickly as possible. The additional guidance given by an experienced coach has proven to be very valuable to the success of Thrive's clients.

When asked how hard it is for people to build a web-based business, Petersen said, "Even though it can seem a daunting task, when compared with setting up a traditional brick-and-mortar store, it's much easier, and much less expensive." He continued, "We have students that are from all backgrounds. Many have little computer experience, others are typical home users. Some come to us with a very technical background, but need assistance with marketing and promoting their businesses. The Thrive Learning Institute's curriculum can adapt to whatever the student needs!"
"The days where you could just hang up a website and watch the money come in are long gone, if they were ever here," he stressed, "Now, you have to promote, promote, promote to be successful." He stressed the need to optimize a site for the right keywords, along with being active on social networks like Twitter and Facebook. In the example of Twitter, Thrive Learning (http://twitter.com/ThriveCorporate) has also found success through answering student queries, in real time, bringing an added dimension to the curriculum. "You also have to have a presence in the blogosphere and YouTube," Peterson noted.
A quick overview of the online learning system shows instructional material for all of these things, and more. "This new curriculum has really helped our students move forward so much more quickly," Petersen concludes, "It's exciting to see!" He sees continued growth and progress in Thrive's future as more and more people turn to the Internet for their own financial security.
