Big Important Questions
I've done my best to answer all of the possible questions you may have, but if you don't see your question here, send me an email at [email protected]
Is the Productize Bootcamp only for web designers / developers?
Nope. If you offer one-to-one services and bill your clients by the hour, you can create a productized service. Copywriters, accountants, lawyers, photographers, video editors and virtually any business built to serve clients can all benefit from this bootcamp!
I'm a beginner freelancer, is this for me?
If you don't have experience with clients, offering services or you're not generating any revenue from your client business, this bootcamp is not for you (yet). We recommend getting a few clients under your belt first.
What's a cohort-based program?
Cohort-based learning is a collaborative environment in which a group of people advance through a training program together, in real time. Think of it like a University program, where you have classmates that you develop connection and relationships with. Participants of cohort-based programs are more likely to achieve results, due to increased accountability, real time learning and feedback, and the "network effect".
What if I already have a productized business?
Great! If your productized business is succeeding and doing very well, contact us and we'd love to consider having you host a training session for our attendees! Otherwise, if you think your productized-service business has room for improvement, you'll get a ton of value from this experience.
What if others are trying to build the same kind of business as me?
"There's more than enough room at the table" is my motto, when it comes to competition. Rather than viewing your cohort as potential competitors you need to crush, I encourage you to shift your thinking into that of a "collaborative" one.
That said, it's unlikely you're going to create an identical productized-service as a member in your cohort — everybody has something unique to bring to the table, and the purpose of this bootcamp is to help you develop your unique offering. Remember, "a rising tide lifts all ships."
Will I actually get feedback on my productized-service ideas?
You'll get real time feedback from Brad Hussey in the live classes, Q&A sessions, and assignments you submit. Plus, you'll be a part of small breakout sessions within your cohort to get more intimate feedback from your small group.
Does the Bootcamp have a refund policy?
Short answer: no.
Medium answer: You’re eligible for a refund up until two weeks before the Bootcamp begins. Refunds are not permitted after that.
This is a brand new experience that I am investing a lot of time, effort and resources into. Your success is dependent on how willing you are to participate with us throughout the Bootcamp. Because this is a live experience, with limited attendees, and personalized attention to each and every student, there will be zero refunds after the cut off date (2 weeks prior to the event). We strongly encourage you to commit to yourself, us and your cohort in order to complete the Bootcamp.
How much time do I have to commit to the Bootcamp?
The Bootcamp is 4 weeks in length and we encourage you to participate in the entire program.
The schedule is: a live class on Mondays at 12pm ET, an open coworking session on Wednesday at 3pm ET, a live Q&A session on Fridays at 12pm ET, and breakout groups during the live calls for small group work.
You’ll have a weekly assignment to complete and submit by Friday. Each live session will be recorded for your reference, or if you cannot attend a live session.
We encourage you to participate in the breakout sessions during the live classes, and to be an active participant in the cohort forum you’ll be given access to. This is where you’ll get tremendous value, feedback and accountability from the experience.
This is not a self-paced online course. If you are unable to be an active participant in the Bootcamp, we recommend that you join one of our self-paced courses, or reach out to provide us with feedback on how we can make the bootcamp more accessible to you.
The admission is out of my budget, do you offer payment plans?
We do not offer payment plans. Our target market for this bootcamp is part time or full time client-service business owners. We’ve priced the bootcamp to be within an affordable range for this market. If you have a unique scenario and would like to reach out to us to make an exception, please email [email protected]
