\\\ABOUT DA BIZ///
The business is an online course for training people to teach English in a foreign country. For example, if an American wants to teach English in Spain, they need to have a TEFL, TESOL or CELTA certificate in order to be able to do so.
There are a few companies doing this already, but the quality isn't up to par and potential customers are unsure of how legitimate/helpful these courses are. These companies treat online TEFL as a throw-away instead of the focus of their training.
We will provide a course that assures learners are properly trained and prepared for the classroom on Day 1. Among other things, we will win by being the best at online marketing via social networks, affiliate networks, AdWords, etc.
\\\WHAT I'M LOOKING FOR///
I'm looking for a rising star who wants to rise with us or someone with mountains of experience but is excited about the project.
I want someone who looks at it as a partnership and not an employer-employee relationship.
I need someone to bounce ideas off of. Someone who will call-out things that don't make sense or are awful. Someone who will ask the right questions.
I strongly prefer someone with knowledge about or interest in the 'teaching English abroad' market. I want someone who gets hyped thinking about helping people sink their teeth into the world and who desires to get out there and join those people!
\\\WHAT WE NEED TO ACCOMPLISH///
1. Zero-in on a brand name
2. Come up with a logo and other related design essentials (You don't necessarily have to create these things, but you will help in the decision making process.)
3. Work on how the website should look and feel and what elements need to be present. (Another person will build the website).
4. Do the same as #3 for the social media presence. (Another person will run the social media marketing, but we will do the planning.)
5. Develop a strategy, in phases, of how to roll out the individual parts; social media marketing, FB advertising, AdWords, affiliate marketing and content development.
6. Help in developing 'the story' of the brand. What are we about? Why should we be trusted? Etc.
7. This is where your creativity and experience come into play. Lead us!!!!
You and I will get this off the ground and more or less put it on auto-pilot. We will hire someone to run the day to day operations and you and I will chat periodically to discuss where to take this company.
Eventually, we will be the #1 online TEFL course and we will expand to provide hybrid courses that combine the online course with 1-week of in-class training in 50+ locations around the globe.
If you are looking for a project that will ultimately (and shortly) allow you to travel around the globe periodically, then jump on board!
