Will this course show me how to design a template?
This answer is a yes and a no. We will give you guidance on how to design a template in a way that is easy for your customers to duplicate in instruction, but not giving any design advice.
How much time do we get in the 1:1 and what can we talk about?
We can talk about anything except specifics on how to code something. I can give design, strategy and sales advice, we can walk through an install process or back end hosting questions, but we save 1:1 css feedback for our Mastermind Intensive.
What should we expect each week?
Each week, we have a packet of information, which includes PDF articles with embedded video about the topic each week, PLUS a bonus section of content each week, which we will give you an insider perspective or insight into the template sales and design process. On top of the weekly content we will be sending out, we also will meet for our live session at Noon EST on Tuesdays of week one, two and four. These live zoom sessions are 1-1.5hrs long. We have about 45 minutes set of lecture/discussion and then the rest will be q+a for that topic. Each session is recorded so you can go back and watch.
What time would we meet for the 1:1s?
For those who upgrade to the 1:1 sessions, you will receive an email to schedule your one on one during the third week in the course. Just like the live sessions, you will receive a link to the recorded session, and it will stay up for 30 days after the course is over so you can decide whether to write down notes, or download the video for safe-keeping.
Can I save the live sessions to watch later, will you keep the videos up?
We will leave the live discussions up for 30 days after the course, which gives you ample time to download the file. Each video file has a separate chat box which you can also save for the future.
How do I know if designing a template is for me?
There are so many reasons to design a template for your business, and three different ways we will teach you to use them. There is a way to fit in templates in all sorts of forms to any kind of web design business, especially if you are looking to branch out a bit from your usual.
How much time does this course take?
During this course we will have our three one:ones, and about 2-3 pdf articles with videos and resources. We would suggest dedicating about 3-4 hrs total per week to the course to go through all information, and be active in the live zoom calls.
When will this course be offered again?
Not at least until mid-2020, we highly suggest you sign up for our fall 2019 session if you want to take advantage of the quiet season of the holidays so you can prep and launch before the new year!
How is this different from designing a template in the SSDG Mastermind?
In mastermind our focus is design, and execution of the design. We work together through a design process, in order to go from strategy-to mockups- to full implentation of the design ideas in your creative brain. Here in our course, we are discussing everything ELSE that you need to add templates into your studio/business. We do discuss design - but on a 10,000 foot level, how to strategize good design for templates, not HOW to design or how to code, etc. If you are looking for design and implementation help for your ideas we highly suggest Mastermind!
