Feb 23 @ 7pm 10 Visibility Strategies to Maximize Revenue & New Opportunities
How do you know you want to work with Stephen Spielberg, Benedict Cumberbatch, Stephen King, Aaron Sorkin, or any of the famous and not-so-famous people you hope to be on a project with someday? You know because they are visible. You know what kind of work they do and how good they are at it. You know what sets them apart. You and your work have to be visible if you want to thrive. As long as you and your work remain invisible, no one knows what you stand for, what kind of work you do, or why they should want to involve you in their projects. In some cases, you need to be visible to the entire world. In some cases, you need to be visible just to people who hire people like you. In this workshop, you learn ten easy-to-follow-recipes for quickly making you and what you do more visible and more important to those who matter most.

In this workshop you learn how to swiftly launch a course that you sell or give away free as a way to get customers for your business. This is a step-by-step soup-to-nuts presentation. It will help you avoid spending too much time, money, effort to earn a good return on your investment. It will help you figure out pricing and promotion.
