Bookkeeper Business Launch (Formerly Bookkeeper Business Academy), found online at LearnToBeABookkeeper.com, is a new online training program designed to teach people how to run a virtual bookkeeping business, even if you have no experience.
The Bookkeeper Business Academy was created by Ben Robinson, a former CPA firm owner and published author who designed this course specifically for people who are ready to start their own online business even though they don’t have a formal background in bookkeeping or accounting.
The website says that more than a thousand people have used this course to become bookkeepers and start their own business, and that the average bookkeeper makes $40,000 year using skills that are always in demand.
What You’ll Learn
This course is broken into three different Training Classes. The first class is dedicated to understanding what a bookkeeping business is all about, the seven key characteristics of a great bookkeeper, and understanding your business’s income potential.
The second class is about the exact technology and tools you need for your business, what it will cost you to start your bookkeeping business, and understanding how the right mindset will contribute to your success.
The third class is all about your future clients. This class is organized in order to teach people how to market their services, how to get the best results for their clients, and other important client based strategies for furthering your success.
What to Consider
For brand new customers, Bookkeeper Business Academy offers a free training class that is intended to teach people what they should know before they start their own business. This free class is designed to provide students with easy to understand information, using no complicated terminology or fancy theories.
This free course is obviously a good opportunity for beginners to see whether or not the full course is right for them, however, this company does not publish any information about any costs associated with their full program. This is problematic because some customers may find their program cost prohibitive and therefore shouldn’t need to waste their time with the free class.
The website does say that their course includes their Xero Certification, which is normally priced at $249 but is included in the cost of the course itself, so the class will certainly be priced higher than that.
They do say that all customers have thirty days from the date of the original purchase to return their products and request a refund, but that no refunds will be processed after thirty days.
