Will short online courses replace universities?
Probably not in the near future, the correct answer is somewhere in between. There are certain professions and industries where online education is worth more than a university qualification. Here are some industries we cover in our online courses.
ICT - Information Communications Technology
In the world of ICT and Software Development specifically, online learning courses are ahead of traditional learning institutions. This is because the industry evolves so quickly that traditional institutions cannot keep up. There are new technologies like Blockchain, Internet of Things and Drone Technology that is evolving everyday. The skills for these technologies are sought after in the market, but very few people offer them.
This is also another developing industry where the skills are new and not covered in full at Univiersity. Learning how to leverage social media to grow your brand, or create effective Google and Facebook marketing campaigns are skills that are marketeable and rare. You can immediately start generating income by selling these skills to businesses.
Search Engine Skills
Google search engine skills are constantly evolving, universities and formal institutions cannot keep up if they tried. The algorithm and laws are in constant flux. For example, few years ago you could rank high just based on the number of back-links you had, Google just counted the total. These days things like page loading speed and mobile optimisation is much more important, in addition - you need high quality links, not quantity. As a digital consultant or business person - you must update your skills almost monthly just to keep with all the changes.
How to monetise your skills?
We are going to be teaching you very important skills that you can immediately start to monetise and make money building your own small business or freelancing gig. We do not waste time discussing qualifications and certifications, we teach your real life skills that you can immediately start to monetize and charge clients for your services.
Start a Freelancing Business
Once you learn how to build Wordpress Websites, you can immediately start charging people and create a Freelancing gig online. You can create an online account on websites like Fiverr - and start building up your portfolio. Online freelancing jobs are generally, low paying - but are a good place for beginners to start gaining experience and building a portfolio. The best way to learn, is to practice. You will become a better website developer, the more websites you create. When you have a big enough portfolio, you can then start applying for professional jobs that pay a higher salaries. However many developers are opting for Freelancing in the long run, because of the flexibility it allows. In Frellancing, you can also increase your prices as you grow and build an online reputation and the business can be veru profitable if you become a top rated developer on the platform.
Build a Blog Online
Blogging is one of the businesses that anyone can get in to, because you can create a blog about any topic and you will find a market for it. Therefore choose a topic you are most passionate about, and start writting. You will have the skills to create your own Blog Website. Once you have created the website, all your efforts will be on growing the traffic so you can start monetising it.
When your traffic grows, you can start charging people for features on your blog, sign up for google adverts and shart getting paid to display google ads and finally charge companies for advertising space directly. If you are blogging about pets, you can charge pet stores and pet food companies to display their video or image advert on your website. Companies are moving away from traditional advertising in to digital advertising, because that is where the audience is and it is an open market where anyone can participate.
