“7 IDEALS” Methodology Overview & Invitation

HOT NEWS: I'm working on the "7 IDEALS METHODOLOGY" video presentation, the blueprint (infographic & guide), the 7 ideals page, and a brand-new contest. For more information, join the newsletter and get exclusive bonuses and discounts for a lifetime.

Overview & Invitation

This methodology is the end result of over 30 years in business and marketing and I'm working on it since late 2021.

A systematic and structured approach to developing and implementing proprietary and custom-made strategies, processes, and campaigns for small businesses and startups.

It’s a methodology specifically designed to help you compete efficiently in the overcomplicated marketplace.

It’s a proprietary system that looks at your business as a whole and gives you a clear path – a roadmap to follow – a solid and flexible strategy and action plan.

It involves a set of principles, processes, models, frameworks, tactics, and techniques that you can use to achieve and surpass your business goals and objectives.

It’s not just a methodology to promote your products and services, that’s only one tiny aspect. It’s a methodology that helps you design, run, manage, and grow businesses. From an initial idea to becoming a leading name in your respective industry and beyond.

Starting small is actually the biggest benefit in this multi-dimensional, fast-changing marketplace.

Small businesses are personal, we get to interact with our customers face-to-face, and serve them at the highest level possible.

We know we can’t compete with giant corporations on budget, resources, or technology, but when it comes to delivering user experiences… guess… who’s the boss!

It’s a carefully designed, strategically organized methodology that helps small business owners understand the market inside out, create a competitive advantage, and develop unmatched – innovative products that consumers can’t enjoy and recommend enough.

WealthyAffiliate - Why Does Everyone Want to be an Influencer? (most make no money) VIDEO:

I know we tend to look up to those that we view as public figures, and that is the case with influencers now on social media. There is a problem though. We perceive these folks through a much different lens than who they actually are, and we also perceive these folks with "followings" to be much more successful than they are.

The Story

In 2009, Chase Jarvis and Craig Swanson started kicking around the idea of making workshops to inspire and support people with the tools to develop their creative skills. The goal was to take a fresh approach to education – to give anyone interested access to visionaries, leaders, and professionals who are doing the work.

So they experimented. In December of that year, the team rolled out a Jason Hoppe Photoshop class and the class actually drove “bacon” to one of the top trending terms for the day on Twitter. The amount of traffic driven to our pages validated for the team that we had an audience – that we were onto something.

RetailReviews: 4.4 out of 5 stars, Some people will have concerns about paying to access classes through Creative Live. I’ll state as plainly as possible that I think I get good value for my money. These aren’t productions that were thrown together at the last minute. They are very professional. That was important enough to me that I decided to stop using free websites. Too often the quality just wasn’t there. I have never had an issue with that while using Creative Live.

My Final Review

First of all, Creative Live is a serious company offering an enormous library of courses for creatives. The founder Chase Jarvis is a passionate and highly-experienced photographer and entrepreneur.

All the instructors are experienced professionals with awards and success stories.

The classes cover a very wide range of creative skills and there are multiple business and marketing courses to help creatives and students create a strong online presence.

A very well organized website divided into departments with schedules. I absolutely love the learning paths as an option to take a combination of classes to master a very specific topic. Moreover, the blog offers additional free informational resources to help students make the most out of their experience with the company.

The On Air live classes is key to understanding what Creative Live has to offer. Not many educational companies out there are offering free samples of their work.

The company charges the classes independently so you better watch some free classes before you commit in buying any course.

I’ve watched many free live photography classes so far and as an amateur photographer, I can tell that I learned a lot. I already put into practice and tested many methods from their training and my results are amazing.

They provide classes for beginners, intermediate, and advanced people as well so you want to choose a class according to your current experience.

I believe the most concrete department of Creative Live is the photo & video section. Additionally, the free photography guides is another excellent chance for you to test what the company is all about.

But every department consists of classes that teach both the creative skills and marketing skills in order to help you create a business. This is very crucial as marketing is way more important than having the perfect creative skills or experience. You have to be found online.

The company is hiring and this is an opportunity for freelancers and job seekers. 

The other online reviews are mostly positive with some people dissatisfied with the customer service or the policy of the company charging the classes independently and not on a subscription-based model. 

That’s it, another review has finished, here on Web Market Support. I look forward to seeing your next creative success story and I am waiting for your comments and thoughts. Till next time…
