Especially as Internet Marketers, we cannot stop learning. Personally, I love to learn with videos. Therefore, I put some video trainings for online marketers together you’ll need. Of course, you can get a lot of videos on our YouTube Channel. But sometimes you need a complete course to dig deep into a subject. If you really want to learn something in-deepth, you better invest into a video training. On the one hand, a video training is much cheaper than a course on a community college. On the other hand, it is also nice to learn with something you can rewind – if you haven’t understood the content of the part, you can just watch it again.
For Christmas, I got a PHP & MySQL Course and loaded the videos to my iPad. You can’t learn any better – e.g. when my husband watches soccer I often use my earphones, plug them into the iPad and watch my video training – you can’t learn any better. By now, I already have a little collection of video trainings and I often watch them again at a later time.
For English speakers there is also an alternative on the market. Lynda.com is one of the best websites to learn new programs available. For a monthly fee, you can learn nearly every program available for computer and Internet but also about photography. You can check out Lynda.com here – the good thing is that you can cancel at any time and therefore Lynda is, e.g. for me, very cost-effective. When I need to learn something I go there, subscribe and unsubscribe as soon as I understood.
If you prefer to own a video training, here are some which helped me a lot for my Online Business:
To be honest with you upfront, when I buy a video training I usually get a German version so I have not seen this special version – but I wanted to give you some knowledge you really need as an Internet Marketer and a way to learn it easily.

Google Adwords for The Small Business
You can lose a fortune on Google Adwords if you don’t know what you do. Therefore, it is absolutely necessary to learn more about Google Adwords before you start setting up your campaigns there. It can be still a very profitable way to advertise but just if your ad is really specific and if your targeted keywords are not too expensive per click. The video training Google AdWords for The Small Business is a great way to learn how to master Google Adsense in 500 minutes of training.
Successful Powerpoint Presentations
The well-known Internet Marketer Jim Edwards shows you in no more than two hours how to create a convincing PowerPoint presentation. When you present something about your topic and record it to upload to YouTube you can be sure that not half of the people who start your video will watch it until the end. But if your video is entertaining you have a much better chance to get attention. The good thing is that the training is that you can watch the training over Amazon Instant Video once you sign up.
