How to Come Up with Content Ideas for your Online Business Club

 

In my last blog post, I went over my top 3 tips for becoming more confident when building your online business club, the third of which was to know that you have great content.

In this blog post, I want to show you how you can come up with that amazing content quickly.

 

Have a Theme

 

The first thing you want to do to create content for your online business club is to come up with a theme. So, what is it that you would teach business owners? And that depends largely on your expertise and what you’re most comfortable with.

For example, if you are a bookkeeper, you might be really switched on with the latest technology as part of financial systems. So you could build your business club around how to be more productive and efficient with your business.

 

The thing that I would suggest for most people would be some form of Business Advisory because that's where we as a profession can add huge value.

Now, occasionally stuff does go wrong, and that’s okay!

What Equipment Do You Need to Start an Online Business Club?

 

In my last blog post I covered the top 3 barriers preventing people from starting an online business club and how you can overcome them.

Now, I want to look at exactly what equipment and technology you need to get started with your online business club.

Software

When I started the Value Pricing Academy in 2014, I was using GoToMeeting, and then we shifted over to Zoom. But there are so many other platforms as well.

 

Hardware

 

The other thing you need is a few bits of hardware, which you also probably already have because in the last year or two we’ve gotten so used to meeting with clients online. So, you probably have the equipment you need,...

The 6 Benefits of Running an Online Business Club

 

The idea of starting an online business advisory club can be daunting. The technology can seem overwhelming and there are a number of barriers which can hold us back. However, when we keep it simple, it’s not actually difficult to do! In this blog post, I’ll share with you the 6 BIG benefits of running an online business club.

 

1 - Scalable

 

Traditionally as a profession we work with clients one-to-one, and that’s fine, but it puts a limit on what is possible for us to do, because we can only work with one person at a time.
