Oh, I still remember how difficult it was to turn my hobby into a business and how many questions I had with every step I had to take. Yup, I did many failures and struggled to grow because of lack of experience but I remember the day I watched my first Skillshare class about digital marketing… It changed everything! From that day, Skillshare became my best tutor and helped me a lot with my biz. That’s why I made this ultimate online classes list for business newbies!
1. From Idea to Business
The most important part of starting your own business is to know how to turn your idea into an actual business. I watched many tutorials about this and these two are my favorite classes:
Art of the Start: Turning Ideas into High-Growth Businesses
Entrepreneurship Hustle: From Business Plan to Real-World Success
Once you know how to start your business, you need to learn at least the basics of branding. These two classes will teach you a lot about its importance and the main elements of branding:
The Staples of Branding: Building a Company from Purpose to Product
Find Your Brand Voice: Personality for Business Success
The third step you need to learn about is sales. Sales are the most important part of your business and because of that, you must become a sales expert. My favorite sales classes are these two:
How to Win the Sales Game: The Art of Selling Anything. Unlock massive Sales Growth in 1 hour flat!
Startup Sales Hacks: Learn to Close More Sales in Less Time
The second most important part of your business is marketing. Without marketing, you won’t have any sales and then your business won’t be able to succeed. These classes were the most helpful ones:
Email Marketing for E-Commerce: Tips and Tools to Increase Sales
10x Marketing: Content Marketing That Stands Out & Gets Results
When I was learning about the perks of running a business, Skillshare was my best teacher. There’re a lot of free classes but the best ones are for Premium users only. The good news is that you don’t have to buy Premium membership to see these classes – sign up for 2 months of Premium membership for free.The offer is temporary so hurry up!
P.s. You can also download Skillshare app and download classes to watch them offline – perfect way to gain new skills while commuting!
