2. What will be my return on investment?
A good business question & decision to ask is "Will I get a positive return on investment?" and the answer is absolutely, undoubtedly. How much simply comes down to how much you apply what you learn. You will not only save yourself potentially months (or years) of learning (place a value on what that is worth to you) but on the ability to create, modify & power websites for yourself or clients.
3. Why have you made this training so affordable?

We appreciate the current economic circumstances many people find themselves in & want to provide amazing value which can help transform & elevate their situation.

6. I'm not sure if I'm ready?
If you hear yourself saying "I'm not ready" please note that it's possible you need this more than anyone. These skills are absolutely essential and if you're about to procrastinate you'll be playing catch up in months or years to come. What's the cost in lost opportunity whilst others race ahead with these skills. You are ready. If we do the same things, we get the same results!
7. I'm not techy enough to do it?
The whole course has been created in an extremely simple, step by step process which anyone can follow.
13. What if I’m not good with technology?
Many of our students don't class themselves as being good with technology.
The few technical bits are described in very simple terms while avoiding unnecessary jargon, which allows people from all age groups & of all abilities to successfully learn.
Everything is screen recorded so you can playback at your chosen speed & play & pause as required.
Ben has worked around the world with people of all ages, cultures & abilities. One thing he makes sure is that instructions & tutorials are clear, easy to follow & logically structured. Too many courses & instructors go from A to E missing out critical steps (such as C & D) because they assume the student knows the missing steps. We give you all the steps & there'll be a bonus evening drinks sessions for anyone who wants to stay, ask questions & network into the night.
