A Year After Pandemic Pivot This Entrepreneur Started Anew
By: Blogging Brute
He had just launched a new course to help businesses tackle and become successful at blogging and content marketing. Designed as a rigorous 10-week bootcamp, Allton led ten live streaming workshop and Q&A sessions, coupled with workbook, planner and support community, throughout Q1. Yet, just as the new quarter and a new students were to begin, the pandemic struck.
While Allton could have continued to price, structure and deliver his training without adjustment, he saw a need arise and was determined to help.
Suddenly, many were without incomes and looking for work, and these people wanted to get started yesterday, not in ten weeks.
The Blogging Bootcamp went from a live training to 100% on demand. Students watch all of the training in a day, and get their new blogging efforts ramped up fast. The cost was slashed and instead of weekly trainings, Allton hosted office hours to give students opportunities to ask questions.
To accomplish this, the recorded sessions were used. And while the material was there, it lacked polish and real-time engagement, and there was no accountability.
Throughout the rest of 2020, the Blogging Bootcamp remained available as an instant, on demand training. Allton recognized the need for new training videos that were updated and didn't force future students to watch replays of past live broadcasts, stripped of engagement with students who had originally watched the live. He knew from the first series of videos that there were a few topics, like SEO, that students wanted more information on, and he saw how much students appreciated being able to go through the training on their own pace, rather than a weekly schedule.
Allton updated all of the course materials and information and then spent months filming all-new training videos. He created an environment where students can download all of the workbooks, planners, checklists and supplemental materials, and then set about to film another eight additional bonus training videos that went into depth on additional topics.
Now, a year after so rapidly switching gears, the Blogging Bootcamp is re-launched and re-born at https://bloggingbrute.com/
