Digital Training Course & Publishing Business
For sale is a digital training course and publishing business that revolves around producing and distributing digital training and services. They create online educational content and sell it to clients via various platforms. Thus far they have managed to acquire an audience of 460,000 students over their 2+ years of history. Also included is their popular YouTube channel.
Freelancers design, create and produce educational content. The set up is such that 100% of products manage to produce an ROI on all the money that was invested into the production of the content (normally less than one month if all goes well). Since the products are digital, it can be sold indefinitely and the profits from a single product are used to finance the production of additional products. The business model is entirely self sufficient and the creation of new content is financed via the sales of current products. At the moment all that is required is to manage the existing pool of freelancers producing the content. This means that tasks and deadlines need to be set and payments made which takes up to 4 hours a day on average.
A single freelancer can produce 1-2 courses per a month. They require all content producers to deliver just one course per a month as they feel it delivers higher quality results and lower expenses since they can work at their leisure. The beauty of the set up is that all of the products from the freelancers end up earning enough to pay a monthly salary to the freelancers and make a profit on top of that.
