How to Ramp Up Digital as the Power You Need for Your Business

The brilliant choice to “go digital.”

Hello, Yianni Stamas here, with a brief message about technology. At this point, digital has been around for a while., so it is certainly not a new idea. In fact, even A.I. is being pushed to the side by some. But if you are not using these tool yet you might want to read on. Today we are looking at “How to Ramp Up Digital as the Power You Need for Your Business.” This topic is very much connected to the suggestion that the domain name of this blog seems to be calling out. The message of the moniker of this site is that those in the “USA go digital.” In other words, by America choosing to “go digital” opens the possibility to harness the incredible potential. We are talking about “Digital Transformation,” which as some of you know is the procedure of changing as many aspects of the processes of your business into digital ones. Many of you are already there. For those of you who are, congrats. But if you are not a part of this “club” the time is now to join. Why? Because as the pandemic has shown us, if you are able to do as many things as possible remotely using digital, your entrepreneurial ventures will be less negatively impacted.

Tapping into digital skills.

The digital tech movement along with A.I. does sometimes result in employees being let go because now there is a machine method to do what they did. This is sad, because it means that these human beings likely must get digital skills to be hired again by another company. In some cases, though, management looks to digital consultants to provide them with strategies to tap into the digital skills of existing employees.

USA go digital!

The idea of the USA going digital is an important one. It is critical to a business’ evolution and keeping up with the times, as well as is a mandate of sorts that workers keep their skillsets up to date. The exciting thing about this though is that it can encourage a culture within the workplace of always learning. Getting new skills with the help of the employer provides a terrific win-win opportunity that by “going digital” they can be more productive at their current job and in the future be more “hirable.” So, USA go digital!

Make, Publish and Sell a Profitable eBook

Are You Ready to Go Digital?

The time is now for the USA to go digital. Why? Because it is the reality of today’s business economy and is vital for survival. An option for going digital can include the writing, publishing, and selling of a nonfiction “How To” eBook that covers an area that is of interest to your customers.

A Form of Promoting

Authoring an eBook can not only empower your demographic but is a way of showing how you are a knowledgeable and top competitor in your industry. Writing an eBook can give you with a way to establish yourself as an expert in your industry while simultaneously teaching the reader how to use your products and services.

A Forum for Analysis

Authoring an eBook can provide you with a chance to reflect on your business category and the path you can take to digitize what you do for a living. In other words, writing about your industry, makes available to you the opportunity to mull on the mechanics of your industry. This opens a forum to contemplate methods you can use yourself to convert your in-person services (if any) into being able to be done digitally. Many businesses had to close during the pandemic because of their dependence on needing to be done in-person. If you have digital alternatives, it makes weathering the pandemic easier.

Self-Publishing Your eBook

Writing and preparing for the marketing and selling of your eBook can be as easy as writing a Microsoft Word document or even a Google Doc. If you need to use images to demonstrate and make clear processes within your industry, make certain the images do not infringe on the copyrights. Once you have completed the content of your eBook, you can then convert it into a PDF or whatever format is necessary to publish it. For example, Google Play Books requires that your file be either a PDF or an EPUB. Whereas a DOC or DOCX are all you need to sell your eBook on Amazon Kindle Books. Amazon will convert your files to its Kindle friendly format. Plus, you can sell your eBook digitally on your own website.

Want to Make an eLearning Course? Consider its Delivery

Delivery on Your Own Website?

You can deliver your eCourse on your own website if you so choose. There are a variety of different approaches to doing this that are a mere web search away. Most of the services that help you get your eLearning course online charge a fee. You need to compare this fee to the amount of purchases you estimate your eCourse will receive.

Research the Market

Before you produce and promote your eLearning course, you should spend an amount of time researching the market. What seems to be selling well? Is there a way of presenting your topic in a way that is not yet visible? This can be your area of differential making you stand out from your competitors. Of course depending on how successful your is you could be imitated.

Should You Host Other Experts in Your eLearning Course?

Yet another strategy with your course is to be the commentator who is the host and asker of questions to experts in your field. This brings up the question of whethere or not you pay these experts? If you provide payment to them or a percentage of the profits of the course, this can cut into your bottom line.

The Legal Aspect of Your eLearning Course

You might want to emphasize the visibility they will receive and that can sometimes be the main thing they want. Be sure to get your experts to digitally sign off on their participation through a release form of some sort. We are not lawyers so we can not recommend any particular way to get the release, but such documents are easily accessible.

Price Your eLearning Course

When pricing your course be sure to do your research. What are other eLearning courses charging for their course? Can you offer a better value? If so, how? Do you want to use the strategy of going at a higher price because the perceived value of your eLearning course is at a higher perceived value because it goes beyond what your competitors are offering. If so, be sure to add to your marketing materials how you are different and better.

Dive Deep Into Your eLearning Course’s Content

Remember that when you create your course, in order for it to be a pleaser for your students, you must take a deep dive into the topics you offer. This is not like a blog post where you skim the surface, you should instead give your student/clients value for their money. The more in depth you can go in a helpful and empowering manner, the better.

New Bullet Points of Digital Survival

Educate Yourself

Digital is now officially something to survive, meaning we now need it to continue our work on Earth as we know it. Digital makes the world go round and if you’re not a part of it, if you want to be a part of the economy, you must start educating yourself about it now.

Digital Domination

These days it’s hard to imagine our world without digital. And along these same lines, digital has made it possible to survive the Coronavirus. Without digital we would be at a loss of how to keep our businesses afloat. Think of it this way, if you did not have a digital conduit to what you do, how would you do what you do. Or even if the act of doing what you do does not require digital, promoting it does. Marketing is dominated by digital.

Still at the Core

So should we just give it over to digital with no attempts at changing our hunger for it. The answer is, yes, please continue to try to knock digital down, but the irony is that your presentation of this attempted knockdown is going to get to your readers, well, digitally.
