What you will get out

Getting a digital education I can honestly say is one of the best things I have ever done. I have gone over the course of a year from being lost after failing a business to feeling like I have almost complete creative freedom. Where ever I am, whatever I may be doing I am always thinking about ideas and I know now that I could act on these ideas. How would this process play out:

  • Speak to as many people as possible, getting feedabck and thoughts
  • Build a prototype website using wordpress or wix – it would be lean, with analytics hooked up to it
  • Drive traffic to the website through Digital Marketing and once agin speaking to everyone about it
  • I would be able to watch my metrics online through my analytics dashboards and A/B testing to see what is working and what is not working
  • Start fine tuning, to give my customers exactly what they want
