3: Armand Morin – Marketing Strategies From Over $200 Million Earned Online
In the third episode of the Memberships and Courses Podcast, Tracy Childers interviews Armand Morin about how he got into selling courses and memberships.
Armand is one of the pioneers of the e-learning industry as we see it today. He figured out how to build and sell membership sites and online courses as early as the late 90s. He sold memberships worth multi million dollars in just a few weeks of time. Eventually, he starts teaching how to sell online. He has built nearly 100 courses and runs an online marketing university for years now.
Armand shares valuable lessons and biggest mistakes to avoid for anyone wanting to start their own online business around teaching others via courses and memberships….
