Phillis Benson - Virtual Partner

Hi, Phillis Benson here!

I created the Virtual Partner Course + Membership Studio™ and this Founder's Workshops as an opportunity to collaborate with other course creators.

Because I, personally, know how daunting it can be when we are working on and in our own content - I created this workshop for fast-action takers who want their courses up & running now. 

In our live DWY - done with you workshops and sessions I will draw on more than a decade of experience as an online project manager, content creator, Course (LMS) & WordPress designer, web developer, and years of experience working with high-level clients!

During this workshop, you'll be able to come and ask any questions that have been nagging at your mind. You're not going to leave here without a clear understanding of whats and hows so don't worry about being left behind!

As a Founding member, you'll have access to me during the Workshop and in our Private group on Facebook.

Let's work together to make rapid progress on your course content, organization, delivery & design, so it looks and feels stunning, engaging for your students, stands out from the competition, sells like hotcakes, and supports your students to achieve the transformations they're seeking. Would you like that?

I’d like to be able to offer everyone immediate help, but I can only accommodate so many in my schedule – so the 1:1 assessment will be scheduled on a first-come first-served basis.

    Phillis immediately jumped in to help me when I was floundering in a mish-mash of 'do it myself' technology overwhelm. I was also looking for advice on growing making my small existing membership to make it much more user-friendly.

    Her in-depth knowledge and extensive experience in creating memberships and programs in both her own business and for others really shone through. Her friendly and calm advice and reassurance set me at ease and we worked through together what she could best help with as well as helping to upskill me in the things I could do myself moving forward.

    Phillis really helped me get clarity on what next steps would best allow me to reduce the overwhelm I was feeling and set myself, my clients, and my members up for growth and success.

    I felt a lot more confident and more empowered after our sessions together and I'm really looking forward to working with Phillis again on an upcoming online conference project.

    Phillis has helped me to get my course content from good to GREAT! She is such a WEALTH of knowledge and has a tremendous understanding of ALL that's out there in this world of digital courses. Phillis is also extremely well connected and she ALWAYS seems to know who and what resources I need to accomplish my task. Couple that with her years and years of experience, it's easy to see how she can execute and help me to deliver awesome results. I am soo grateful to have worked with Phillis and pre-launched my very first course to a list of 55. 8 students registered and I grossed $5,800.

    Phillis is amazing at getting to the heart of an issue and finding creative but practical ways to address them with immediate wins. Her technical knowledge of software and systems is unmatched and she provides clarity on a situation within minutes and walks you through the tools you need to handle any issue.

    When I started creating my course, I was all over the place with ideas and resources then Phillis was able to get me settled and focussed on the things that I needed to do by helping me create a proper framework and specifically assisting me to work out my tech needs so that I could focus on content creation for my project. She is a complete BOSS and I am so grateful that I connected with her.  Thank you Phillis!

    What is course development & delivery using Instructional Design?

    The goal of all learning: Expertise.

    Instructional Design, therefore, they point out, must be such that learners develop ‘conceptually rich and organized representations of knowledge that resist forgetting, can be retrieved automatically and can be applied flexibly across tasks and situations.

    Those who design instructional systems, therefore, must keep that goal in mind as they create their system.

    In this Workshop (course) we'll explore some basic principles of effective Instructional Systems Design (ISD).

     Instructional Design Should Proceed At An Efficient Pace

    Instructional Design Should Contextualise Information

    I can't say enough about Phillis Benson as a true virtual partner. I can attest that Word Press site development, online marketing strategies, eComm and CRM tool integration using Active Campaign are her true superpowers. I'm the creative type. I have no problem creating marketing materials and products. But the flip side is I've also been a complete technophobe. Just hearing the term "code" makes me squeamish. And to me, a website's "back end" sounded like something straight out of The Matrix. In fact, before working with Phillis, I was pretty doubtful that an attractive website – much less an e-commerce site – would happen. And if it did, I would never understand it enough to be able to edit it on my own. But Phillis has the patience of a saint ... and with her coaching and quick how-to videos, I'm getting the hang of it.

    My site is now live, complete with a Quiz, Blog, and Product pages, a Shop page that features 8 products (which contain 38 pieces in all). Phillis has set up the all-important CRM integrations with Active Campaign, hooking up an 18-email funnel sequence, so I can get my product launch off the ground in the way I want – AND keep my "launch newbie" stress level low (her experience has a real calming effect). She's very analytical when it comes to marketing integrations, what actions need to happen and in what order, and sets things up so they work for you now and into the future.

    One more thing that needs mentioning: Phillis pays careful attention to the user experience, and has helped me simplify things and, as they say, "get out of my own way."
