BIG Business Updates & Changes For AaronWard.com (October 2019)

Aaron Ward Business Updates

I'll make this short and sweet.

A few days ago I just turned the big 25 (October 1st if you want to send me cake next year).

In the past month, I looked at what the most successful entrepreneurs in my eyes were doing.

And this caused me to reflect on a few important business and life decisions.

I thought about things in detail such as:

  1. Who do I want to be, and who do I want to aspire to?
  2. What type of business do I want to run, and who do I want to help (ideal students)?
  3. And how do all the pieces of this puzzle go together?

Some pretty hard questions to answer for anyone.

Here's the thing I found out...

Anxiety and stress have been more common in my day-to-day life whilst running my business.

Why?

Well I'm currently known as “the go-to Instagram automation guy”, and my business was built around helping business owners use automation tools and Instagram Marketing strategies to speed up their growth and convert followers into customers.

The BIG problem is that Instagram changes a lot...

...And if Instagram changes, so does my business. If a tool stops working, so does my business. If something isn’t needed any more neither are my products.

This is not fun. Because my business can do a full 360 and stop generating income if Instagram decides to make a major change. For example, removing automation on the platform.

I also don't see myself teaching Instagram marketing in 10 to 20 years. Not to be negative, but I don't see Instagram lasting forever either. I'm sure something will replace it eventually. And on top of this, I feel much more fulfilled when I've helped others create an online course that has generated them income they would have dreamed of, and allowed them to leave their 9-5 job behind.

Now don’t get me wrong, I’ve worked with amazing people and have been incredibly grateful for my success in this area.

However…

It’s not really what I’ve ever wanted to do, at least in the bigger scheme of things. 

Instead I've discovered that I want to build a business that I have control over, and ultimately makes a bigger impact for my audiences lives: their happiness, financial gains, and freedom to do the things they love. 

So here’s my plan, and how it will impact you if you decide to join me on this new and exciting journey.

P.S. I hope you like Spongebob as I wen't crazy with SB Gifs.

Firstly, Thank You!

You're freaking awesome!

Thank you for following me in the past 2+ years!

It's been amazing that I've got to impact so many lives and help you grow your business.

I know it's cliche to say, but without you I wouldn't be able to run my business and be doing the things I love.

I'm truly grateful and hope I can help and serve you even more as I adventure onto this new chapter of my life and business.

My #1 Focus Will Be Online Courses + Marketing Now

The future for 'Aaron Ward' isn't Instagram I'm afraid. While I've got experience and knowledge on Instagram...

...it won't be my #1 priority moving forward.

Instead I want to help coaches, content creators and passionate entrepreneurs build their own impactful and profitable online course.

Why? Well I've been selling courses for the past 2 years and have made over $240,000+ in sales. This was after quitting my 9-5 job that would only make me $55,000 a year.

My goal is to turn you into Mr. Crabs through your very own digital course sales

Moving forward:

I now want to to share my experience and knowledge with you on how I did this so you can:

  • Make more money online, without the headaches of physical products or trading time for money
  • Get more freedom in life, whether its finical or time based so you can do more of the things you love to do

How I'm going to do it...

Firstly I want to make online business less stressful, overwhelming and confusing.

Running a business can be overwhelming...

When I first started I didn't really understand the big picture, or the puzzle pieces that needed to go together.

My goal is to make this clear for you, and also to make it FUN. Because at the end of the day, whats the point in running an business if it isn't fun and you don't enjoy it? That's why this one of my business beliefs.

Now if you've experienced my teaching style before, I'm straight to the point and blunt.

I'll be keeping this style moving forward so you can get the information you need to then go off and execute the right actions that will get you the results...and inspire you to keep moving forward.

Sound fair? Awesome 😉

Other things: New Website + Branding

Good lord my website looked like crap for a while.

I finally used my background in design and advertising to create a user friendly, and well-structured branding to establish myself.

As you can see the before and after are pretty drastic:

Aaron's website before the new look
Website Before October 2019 Update
Aaron's website after changes
Website After October 2019 Update

The reason I did this is so you can have a better experience on my website.

This should make it easier for you to navigate around the website, find the content you need, and get your hands on my free training or paid products easier.undefined

Better website & consistent branding = better user experience

More Free Content For 2020

I plan on writing more content and being more consistent with my YouTube videos. This should let you find content easier (new search function and blog categories).

Free content = free money

In addition, I'll be hosting my first webinar very soon (currently in production). You'll get an email about when it is going live.

If you're not on my email list, click here to join + get my new free training.

P.S. I’ll have some new videos coming out soon on how I build my websites, and make them 100% customized without a template restriction or coding anything. Click here to subscribe so you see when I upload those videos.

A New Flagship Course

Finally I have been working hard behind the scenes on a new paid training that teaches you how to create your very own profitable online course.

Profitable Course Academy is my new flagship course in development

This training shows you the big picture, and then guides you through every step to successfully building, launching, and optimizing your course for passive income.

It's called Profitable Course Academy — we are still in beta. But you'll hear more about it as the course gets finalized and I launch it.

Because of this:

I am exploring better tools to help you with your own business (such as checkouts, course platforms, landing page builders, etc...), so you'll be seeing guides and free training/webinars on how to best utilize these tools for your own business.

Annnddddd.....That's all folks!
