To join the Challenge, you only need to make a one-time registration fee of $127. There is no additional cost needed to complete the Challenge.
2. When and how can I start the Challenge?
You will have access to the Facebook group and all resources necessary to get you ready for the Challenge as soon as you have registered.
The Challenge starts on the first day of the subsequent month of your registration date. The step-by-step onboarding instruction video will be sent to you via email to make sure you can begin your Challenge effortlessly.
3. How much time do I need to commit to the Challenge every day?
It depends on your goals for the Challenge.
If you plan to take action and even get students during the Challenge, you should budget 1-2 hours every day.
If you plan to only learn the process to get your own students online and implement after the Challenge, you just need to budget 30 min to an hour every day.
However, you don’t have to commit everyday. You can skip a couple of days and catch up if you have to.
Videos will be posted to the group each day and you have the flexibility to watch the video and do the work on your own time. Completely flexible.
4. What is covered in the Challenge?
In 21 days, you’ll learn how to:
• Define your perfect niche to differentiate yourself from others
• Craft your curriculum and transition to program-based teaching
• Develop your marketing messages that actually resonate with your niche
• Market yourself on LinkedIn and Facebook to develop leads and get students
• Practice your entrepreneurial muscle and shift your mindset to think and act like a teacher-entrepreneur
On top of these, you can win the sales training as long as you complete the assignments by the end of the Challenge so you know how to convert your potential students at a higher rate.
Paid marketing, such as Facebook ads and Google ads, is not covered in the Challenge because you are not supposed to use paid marketing until you get your proof of concept for your business.
5. Where is the Challenge hosted?
The Challenge is hosted in a closed Facebook group. Facebook has many great features that allow us to carry out the Challenge in a very interactive way.
Videos and exercises are released to the group on a daily basis. You can watch the videos and complete the exercises following your own schedule. A number of Q&A sessions are hosted through Facebook Live in the group. You can always watch the recordings if you can’t join live.
After the registration, you will be invited to a Facebook group for the Challenge month right away so you can meet other participants in the group and prepare yourself for the Challenge. If you don’t have a Facebook account, feel free to create a temporary account for the Challenge. It is worth the effort.
6. Can I benefit from the Challenge if I’m very experienced in teaching ESL online?
Yes, you can benefit if you would like to scale your business to 6 figures.
The Challenge can help you solidify your business foundation and equip you with online marketing and sales tools to develop leads and convert prospects at a much higher rate. It will provide you with a step-by-step roadmap to your 6-figure online teaching business.
7. Can I join the Challenge if I’m new to ESL teaching or online teaching?
Yes, you should join because the Challenge can help you clarify the steps you need to start your own business online and get your own students at a much higher rate.
It will save you from the mistakes you can easily make if you do it on your own. It also provides you with the necessary skills in teaching, marketing, and sales to help your business take off in the shortest possible time.
8. Do I need to wait until I have my certificates to participate in the Challenge?
Certificates and related training are useful but not necessary to get your own students online. The best way to use your time is to join the Challenge first, figure out what you really need, and then decide if you want to pursue a certificate.
9. Do I need to have a niche to participate in the Challenge?
No, you don’t.
Your very first task in the Challenge is to define your niche following my in-depth instructions.
If you have got a niche, that works fine too. You will learn how to refine your niche so you can develop resonating marketing messages and your attractive program.
10. Do I need to be a traditional ESL teacher with a relevant education background?
No, you don’t have to be a traditional teacher for this Challenge or your own business.
As long as you believe you can help students and would like to have an online ESL teaching business for yourself, you are qualified for this Challenge and your own business.
11. Can I join the Challenge if I’m not very good at technology?
Yes, it’s totally fine.
Being familiar with technology makes things easier, but you don’t need to be tech-savvy at all to participate in this Challenge or start your own teaching business.
You will follow step-by-step tutorial videos and learn how to use online platforms to identify students from your niche and get in touch with them, how to use Google Drive to create and share documents with your students, how to teach students using Skype/Zoom, and how to request payment via PayPal.
We have teachers in the Challenge from 20+ years old to 70+ years old. If they can do it, you can too!
12. What do I need to participate in this Challenge?
You only need a computer and the internet because this is for an online business. You will conduct all the activities with your computer online, including watching tutorial videos, conducting online exercises, marketing your business, and teaching your students.
13. Does the Challenge come with a refund policy?
The refund is available for participants who have followed the Challenge but are not happy with the results at the end. You will need to complete all 3 assignment worksheets by the 24th of the Challenge month (Eastern time, US) and join the graduation training to be qualified for a refund.
