Welcome to Webinational!
I started the journey that has led to this project in 2009, though I had no idea what was happening.
I never really saw myself doing this, though. I never thought I would be running my own business, no matter how big or small. I graduated college with a major in History and a minor in Education. I was a teacher and football coach for 10 years.My name is Joe Daniel, and I am an Internet Marketer. That sounds terrible, doesn’t it? “Internet Marketer” has a kind of sleazy connotation these days. But it is what I do. I run internet-based businesses. Since the only way you can make money is to sell, I have to be a marketer.
Not exactly the pedigree you look for in someone who’s going to teach you how to run a business, is it?
My Path to Here
In 2009 I started my first website. It was a total failure, though it still exists. The website was based on teaching people who were not football coaches, about the in’s and out’s of American Football. There’s not much money in that though, short of becoming an author. Whoops!
After a few pivots, I ended up writing a very successful blog for American Football coaches. By 2011 I was seeing over 20,000 visitors a month. Who weren’t spending a dime.
Did I want to be popular, or did I want to make money? Well I wanted to make money. Not a lot, just enough to be comfortable. To not worry about the next paycheck. It never crossed my mind to leave teaching.
But once I started learning to market, to create products, and to <gasp> sell… I started making more money. The Spring of 2012 turned out to be my last semester as a teacher.
Why I Created Webinational
One of the most important factors to being able to work for myself… was learning to market my materials. It is a challenge to sell in a market where your primary customers are school teachers (coaches).
Webinars were a huge key to growing my business and increasing my sales. Today, most of my biggest profit products are in some way based on Webinars.
The basis of my business today is in using Live Webinars to establish expertise in my industry. My top selling products are basically selling access to previously recorded Webinars. I build my Mailing List (and the money IS still in the list) giving away free access to other Webinar recordings.
Hosting Web Events has been a key to building my business. And I love creating them. But there was some serious trial and error.
I wanted to find a way to help other people do what they love doing, and make money doing it. I hate hearing people say, “I could never do what you do!” I want to show them that you can.
I built Webinational to show you how I was able to work for myself and wake up every day doing what I love to do.
