HOW WILL THE COURSE BE CONDUCTED

We keep the logistics very simple and it works well for us.

We’ll use Email, Google Docs and Phone Calls to coach you for a period of 25 days.

If the participants so desire, we also create a WhatsApp/Facebook group for discussions.

Here is what the course consists of:

Guide Papers (GP): Guide Papers (that’s what we call our modules) are 5-6 pages long documents containing concise, practical information on various topics of blogging.  There are 10 Guide Papers in all.

Tasks: There are 5 tasks on some key Guide Papers. These tasks ensure that you implement what you learn. Each task is discussed via Emails or on the Facebook Group.

Calls: While most of the communication happens over emails, you can call the coach to discuss any related, unresolved issue.

The course will be informal but professional; structured but flexible.

The course progresses like this:

Read the guide paper and ask questions, if any.

Complete the task and ask questions, if any.

Regular phone calls are also scheduled to help you with anything you are struggling with.
