You may have said to yourself…
- “I have this great idea to sell some of my training online but I just don’t know where to start or who to trust to help me.”
- “I’m completely baffled by the membership software I purchased and don’t know how to use it.”
- “My competitors now provide an online component to their services and I’m starting to feel left behind. How can I do this too?”
- “I was told that it’s easy to hire a cheap programmer from overseas to create an online training site. But instead it’s been total frustration. How do I find someone I can trust to do this right?”
If this sounds like you, maybe I can help.
I’m Bob Patterson, and I specialize in helping consultants, coaches, trainers, authors and other experts to create online training platforms and other types of membership sites so that they can sell their expertise to a wider market online.
Who I Help
We work with independent professionals in a wide variety of industries who are proven experts in their field. They have decided to sell their expertise online to either expand their market or extend their current services.
Typically our clients are either too busy, don’t have the interest or the experience to create the website themselves. Therefore they engage us to first understand them, their business and objectives, then quickly and professionally create an online platform that meets their needs. having us manage the project frees them to focus their attention to manage their business and create content for their online products.
Why clients choose us
I answer the phone. This sounds silly, but many tech people are reluctant to speak with clients live. I prefer to engage with you personally…from the beginning. Even a short conversation makes it easier to understand your needs and is more efficient than trading multiple emails.
I can see beyond the horizon – I’ve built and or supported hundreds of membership sites over the past seven years. Because of this I can anticipate the next 5 problems you are likely to have. This enables me to help you accelerate though them.
I speak geek so you don’t have to. Why waste your valuable time struggling with complex web technology. It’s a lot to learn to use only one time. We handle the techno stuff for you so that you can focus on things that make you money.
I’ve been where you are. As a refugee from the corporate world I spent most of my career as a senior executive in the cable television business. I struck out on my own and spent 10 years as an independent consultant and trainer. After returning to the corporate world for a couple years I found myself laid off and out of work.
As a geek at heart, I decided to create an online training website thinking it would take me only two weeks. Six months later I finally launched it. In the process I became a certified WishList Member developer and began helping consultants, trainers and other experts create their own membership and training sites. That was over seven years ago and I haven’t looked back.
In addition to developing membership sites for others, I created Street Photography Magazine, a membership site and iOS app with several thousand subscribers. Not only do I build subscription sites but I also own, manage and market one in a very noisy online world.
That’s my story. What’s yours?
