What can I say about the Side Hustle online marketing training? Some things just can’t be expressed in words alone.
We learnt so much stuff and enjoyed ourselves to the full. See photos below.
This training was just top notch. From the speakers to the content, every minute of it was worth it.
Tim is a top-notch internet marketer who was also the keynote speaker on this event.
I was happy to be there both as a guest and a speaker and as usual, would love to share the experience.
What Was the Online Marketing Training All About?
The Side Hustle internet marketing training was a seminar held in Nairobi on 28th July, 2013.
The aim was to help the attendees to learn how to make Sh. 50,000 and above per month online, working part-time, which is what people commonly refer to as a side hustle.
The training was being run by Timothy Maina of the Brandstorm Network. Tim also doubles as an internet marketer and an entrepreneur, both online and offline.
The entrance fee to the event was Sh. 1500 but once we got out, we all agreed that this was way below the value we got from the training, it was worth much more.
You can now get it for only Sh. 800.
Internet Marketing Lessons Learnt
Ever heard of stuff like squeeze pages, autoresponders, OTOs, upsells, downsells, JV, sales pages etc? Do you know of any affiliate platforms that can pay you even 75% commissions?
This wasn’t the generic training that taught the kawaida things about internet marketing. This was totally something unique.
The stuff we were learning includes information that the top affiliates in the world are using – talk about people like Mike Lantz, Jeff Johnson, Mark Ling, Chris Farrell among others. It is what I would call, the real stuff when it comes to internet marketing in Kenya, and even worldwide.
Some of the lessons learnt included:
Different ways of making money online
These included some of the stuff you know e.g. freelancing websites, selling products among others. The good thing is that he introduced us to some other new cool ways of making money online. I can say that he simply just brushed through this part since the main aim was to help people make big bucks online with a side hustle (part time business).
Building a web agency
This was the real deal.
We were there with some of the top Kenyan marketers and we were all silent learning about stuff that had never occurred to us. I remember the hours flying by like seconds since there was a lot of new, awesome material to learn from.
How would you feel if you had your own, big-time, one person agency running like a real professional agency with multiple staff? Yes, that’s the feeling we got from the training.
We learnt some incredible stuff about:
- Branding – This was huge. You can earn 10 times more than what you earn if you just brand yourself right.
- Getting clients – he actually gave us a template that we can use when bidding for jobs or sending proposals
- Charging clients – What we should charge for some services with an international agency. The list of charges made the prices we offer out here seem like peanuts. Imagine getting paid $600 for a job that you outsourced to someone else for $10
- Marketing – Getting joint ventures and affiliates from the right, world class programs
- …and much much more
What I personally loved the most about this part is that we were given all the secrets that all the trusted professionals use. This included some ‘heavy duty’ list of websites where we could get stuff at insanely low amounts and sell them to customers at 10 or even 20 times the price.
The other speakers apart from Tim were Paula Thayrow of KenyaMoneyOnline and myself.
My good friend Paula talked about autoresponders and how powerful they are in online business.
Yes, there are some great extras that came with this package. These include:
- Free web hosting for the first month and thereafter $5 per month (lower than most hosting providers)
- Access to a mastermind group of top Kenyan bloggers and internet marketers where you’ll get professional solutions to your problems
- Access to world class graphics from Maina+Studios you can use to apply for graphic design jobs
- A list of free websites where you can get top notch services from
- A bidding/proposal template that you can use when looking for jobs in sites like Freelancer, oDesk and Elance.
Final Thoughts and Photos
One of my key takeaways was Tim’s integrity. At the end of the training, he said, “If you feel like you’ve learnt nothing from the training, go to Melissa and ask her to give your 1500 shillings back, no questions asked.”
Of course, no one went to get back their cash. Why? The value of the training was much more than what we paid for.
Below are some of the photos of the event.
