Absolutely. No matter if you’ve been freelancing for 1 day or 10 years, the Freelancer Masterclass walks you through 9 step-by-step modules. Even the most experienced freelancers give great feedback to our very first module.
The tests are between 10 and 25 questions and are multiple choice. If you fail a test you can work with your account rep to work on your incorrect answers. You can take the test twice. If you fail twice, your account rep will work with you to rectify the issues. You will not have to pay to take the test multiple times.
Once you become a premium member, you’ll have access to the all the courses and materials. You will not get access to the Inner Circle Referral Network until you graduate.
The online live group sessions are 30 minutes long every other week and are hosted by our instructors. Sometimes a lesson will be taught and sometimes there will be a guest speaker.
Some students that are extremely motivated can finish the course in a couple weeks. Some take a few months. It all depends on how much time you commit to view the videos and complete the coursework. On average, you should set aside 3 hours a week for about 8 weeks to complete the course.
The Inner Circle Referral Network (ICRN) is reserved for graduates of the Freelancer Masterclass. Once you graduate, you will have access to a database that lists each graduate, their bio, and their specialty. You can give and take referrals freely through this network. For example, if you are a marketer and have a client that needs design work, simply go to the ICRN, find a designer and describe your clients needs. If the designer gets hired, you capture 10% of their revenue as a referral. You will also be able to collaborate with other graduates via a private Facebook group. Not only is this helpful for referrals, it’s a great support and collaboration medium for your business.
You will have access to the course for 3 months, as well as access to the chat boards and live bi-weekly classes . Premium students have lifetime access to new material, free of charge.
Discounts are not offered for individuals since there is already so much inherent value in the course. It is not uncommon for freelancers to double and even triple (or more) their hourly rate and clientele once graduating.
Consultants get a TON of value out of this course because the concept of establishing your online presence, brand, reputation, prospecting for and servicing clients and being/staying productive still applies. Also, solopreneurs get value out of this coursework as well.
Agencies get a TON of value out of this course because the concept of establishing your online presence, brand, reputation, prospecting for and servicing clients and being/staying productive still applies.
