What is in the programme? There are 3 pillars. Each one focused on developing your skills in a specific area. They build on each other. I do not know your skill level at this moment; for this reason, we cover a lot of ground and source various courses to help you develop your skills.
What makes this different? We cover a lot. There are 3 pillars. The foundation level is getting the basics in place. The marketing skills builds on it. You can dive into a specific section at any time.
You get access to all current courses and guides the moment you join. We go into 12 internet marketing business models, one per month. You decide which one is right for you. We do an over the shoulder video recording for you to follow, learn from and apply.
What are the 12 Internet Business Models? There are a couple of ways to earn money online. We will look at the most popular ones and setup one per month; from start to finish. This is an over the shoulder development program showing you how to do it (video recordings); mistakes we make, how to do it better, tips and tricks. You can choose which one fits you best. Each model has pro’s and con’s; like any business. Here are the 12 we will be covering (in no specific order):
PLUS; My Growth Hacking Journey (not a lot of people showing you how to growth hack a business). The best part is you can apply this to EVERY business you start because it is developing your skills; your knowledge. Your skills become your super power.
What is growth hacking? It is a business growth methodology coined back in 2012. Growth hacking is a process of rapid experimentation across marketing funnel, product development, sales segments, and other areas of the business to identify the most efficient ways to grow a business (Wikipedia). It has been the driving force behind Facebook, AirBnB, LinkedIn, YouTube, Mint, Dropbox, PayPal, and many more.
What is needed? Some basic computer skills, a laptop (you do want to work from anywhere, right?), and internet access. For some business models you will need to get systems; ie hosting; e-commerce system, email system, etc. We will cover different options for each.
What about advertising budgets? Each market is different, and the cost is different. We do suggest having a marketing / advertising budget. The trick is to start small and build from there. If you do not have a budget; you will need to hustle more (also a topic we cover). An advertising budget gets faster results.
Who is this for? This is for entrepreneurs and business people who are already in business or who want to start a side income (side hustle) using the internet as a base which allows you to work and live from anywhere.
Who will this NOT work for? If you are looking for quick overnight success; this is not for you. If you want to run scams; this is not for you. If you are not willing to put in the time and effort, this is not for you. If you are not willing to open your mind, learn, try, fail and discover, this is not for you.
What is included? Access to all the courses in the 3 pillars; weekly Q&A one-hour support webinar; and email support around the courses and the webinars.
What is not included? I will not do the work for you. That is what you need to do. Completing the training, attending webinars; the research, setup, design, sourcing, marketing, sales, etc … that is what you do. You can consult with me at my current online Skype rate of R600 ($47) per hour (hey, I might be in Balito or Cape Town when we talk).
Will you be successful? I cannot make you a success. Only you can. I can help you on your journey by supporting you to develop your skills which increases your chances of being successful. Your skills, determination and taking action, all determines the level of your success.

Welcome. It is AWESOME to have you here on this page. Thank you for considering this course as part of your development.
The late Jim Rohn said it best. Skill makes labor valuable. When you develop your skills your work becomes more valuable.
Seeing how a world opens up for you when you get the right skills has always been an amazing experience for me. For more than 20 years I have been actively involved in training and development helping thousands of people to develop their skills.
Why can I teach this? I studied marketing at the University of Pretoria and completed my Honors degree in Marketing. During this time I came in contact with the Internet and worked at a computer company. That year I also created my first website, back in 1999 (yes, in 1999!).
I worked for a couple companies (one being a leading bank where my role was project and change manager). I implemented over 50 projects. A big part of this was training people. I was fortunate enough to have experienced live and online training then already.
Since 2006 I have had my own business. I created a digital marketing course. This course helps people understand digital marketing better. I also created a couple other courses.
In 2017 I had a call from Peter. He suggested to take my LinkedIn course online. A while later Global Entrepreneurs Academy was created. The aim is helping you develop your digital skills.
