Running a small business is not easy. You typically have a limited budget and limited employees so you have to do a lot yourself!
When it comes to marketing, as technology continues to evolve, it is getting really hard to keep up and know what to do. You go online to investigate and you are left feeling even more confused. A lot of the information can be conflicting and involves jargon that you are not familiar with. You don't have the time to spend countless hours to become a marketing guru, nor can you afford to pay for a marketing guru.
The other issue that you have, is that the various forms of marketing can be expensive, so with a limited budget, you need to invest your money where you will get the best return.
Email marketing is a great option for small businesses owners like yourself, but there are four key issues that prevent most small businesses from undertaking it:
1) Working out what software to use and how to use it!
2) How are you going to have the time to learn what to do and will it be too complicated for you to understand?
3) What on earth do you write in the emails to get results?
4) How can you make the emails look great without going to the additional expense of a Graphic Designer?
This course has been specifically crafted to address the barriers for small businesses owners such as yourself from undertaking email marketing.

Hi, I’m Paul Dodds
I am here to help small businesses navigate the challenges of modern day marketing. As technology continues to evolve, it makes it ever more challenging for small businesses to keep up and make the right decisions to help make their businesses successful. Small businesses can't afford to employ a marketing expert and don't have the time and possibly inclination to become one themselves. I am here to bridge the gap, steer you in the right direction, teach you what you need to know without swamping you with too much detail and too much jargon.
Don't just take our word for it! Hear what others have to say about our email marketing course and how valuable email marketing has been for their business!
When does the course start and finish? The course starts now and never ends! It is a completely self-paced online course - you decide when you start and when you finish!
How long do I have access to the course? How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own.
Do I need to be an IT expert to do this course? No you don't. We take you slowly, step by step through the process. So long as you have a computer and access to the internet, you will be just fine.
Will it take a long time to do this course? It is entirely up to you. If you want, you can watch multiple videos in one session. In order to begin creating your own email account and campaigns, you can do it straight away as you follow us through the programme. In terms of the lectures covering templates, they involve some repetition, so you may feel comfortable creating campaigns without having watched all the lectures.
What happens if I get stuck with setting up my email account? Go to our private Facebook group and let the group know. Either us, or one of the other members will be able to help. Where necessary, we will create a video and post to the group to show you what to do!
Are there any additional charges? No, there is just the off off cost and that is it. In terms of the email software, we suggest that you use the free version, but you can purchase a paid version if you want
What if I am unhappy with the course? We would never want you to be unhappy! If you are unsatisfied with your purchase, contact us in the first 14 days and we will give you a full refund.
