Here are a few things your fellow creatives have asked before enrolling in The Ultimate Freelance Course:
I'm not a designer, is this course still a good fit for my creative business?
The course is for creatives of all types. My personal background is design and my agency did a ton of digital work, so the you may “feel” that thread throughout some of the content. However, the systems in the courses have been effectively used for marketing, photography, videography, development, illustration, and motion graphics businesses. If you are a creative entrepreneur of any discipline, you can assume that a significant portion of the course content will directly apply to your business and the small portions that do not directly apply will be easy to adapt to your business. All that being said, if you enroll and don’t find enough of the content to apply directly to your creative business, there is a 30-day money back guarantee. No hassle.
I already have an agency, will this course help me?
I market this course as a “freelance” course due to the enormous size of that audience. However, the course is really “How to Run a Creative Business.” These are the systems and strategies I used to grow my agency to millions in revenue with a team of 20 full-time employees. I sold my agency in 2015 and implemented these same systems and processes into the agency I sold to and we won Inc. 5000 two years in a row. If your business is doing less than $3 million in revenue, this course will have numerous tactics that will help you improve your workflow, generate more revenue, and increase your profits.
I'm just getting started as a freelancer, will this course be too advanced for me?
It is never too early to learn the right way to do things. If you already have creative skills, my course will teach you how to propose, sell, contract, and execute those skills for your clients. Students who have already been working in the creative industry will have likely seen “the wrong way” people run their creative businesses. Taking my course early in your career will help you run your business effectively from the start of your career, rather than learn lessons the hard way.
If I'm not satisfied, how do I get my money back?
In the unlikely scenario that the course is not a good fit for you business, you can request a refund within 30 days of enrollment. Send an email directly to me: [email protected] (More than 3,000 students have enrolled in the courses and refund requests are still in single digits.)
How long do I have access to the content?
You have lifetime access to the content. The content can be accessed through any web browser or using the Teachable app on your mobile device or smartphone.
What file formats are the templates in?
The proposal and contract templates are provide in both Adobe InDesign and PDF formats. They are “simplistically” designed for content delivery only with the assumption that course students will want to create their own templates matching their brand style in the software of their choice. Many students have easily converted the content to Powerpoint, Keynote, Canva and other formats based on their software preferences.
Most of the other templates and worksheets included in the course are provided in XLS spreadsheet and PDF formats. These can be opened using built in software on your computer or Google Docs (free to use).
Is there a payment plan for people who can’t afford the one time price?
There is not a payment plan for the courses. To be honest, I’ve really struggled with where to price the course. Many courses that offer far less than this course cost significantly more ($$$$ thousands). I have decided to price this course at a more affordable price point to get it to as many people as I can without devaluing the content too much. However, I know that it is still too costly for many people who would like to enroll. I give away a ton of value for free on my Instagram, YouTube channels and weekly newsletter. I also have published books that will help you grow your creative business. If this course is too expensive for you right now, I recommend that you consume my free and cheaper content to help improve your earning power. My course will be here when you’re ready.
Do you have any student discounts?
There are no special discounts for students. “Everyone” in the course is a student. This is a 40+ hour course with tons of downloadable resources and it costs significantly less than formal education choices.
Can I watch the without internet access?
The course is hosted on the Teachable platform. Teachable has a mobile app that can be downloaded on a tablet or smartphone. Through the mobile app, you can log into the courses and download videos to the device for watching without an internet connection. Check your App Store for the “Teachable” app.
I forgot my password or username. How can I regain access?
Send me an email and I’ll get you back into the system or click the "Forgot my password" button at the login screen. May email address is [email protected].
Can I get a formal invoice for tax purposes?
The course is hosted and sold through the Teachable platform. At the time of enrollment, you will receive an email receipt of purchase (check your SPAM folder if you didn't receive it). This should be sufficient for your tax purposes. However, some students have requested a customized invoice specific to their country’s tax requirements. If you need a customized invoice, please email me directly [email protected].
Can I remove the VAT tax at the time of purchase?
The course is hosted and sold through the Teachable platform. Teachable works hard to stay up to date with tax requirements for each country. While I don’t have the ability to remove the collection of VAT tax through the checkout process, there is a way to add your VAT number. Please see Teachable’s documentation for more on VAT tax collection…
Can I pay for the course using PayPal?
The payment gateway for the checkout page uses Stripe for the transaction. However, if you need to use PayPal to enroll, send me an email and I can send you a PayPal request for the enrollment fee and then manually enroll you in the courses. My email address is [email protected].
