How passive learning offers good returns on your investment

How can you scale your business to increase the return on your investment, especially if you’re an entrepreneur? One of our customers has some advice on the topic.

“Thanks to Nimble, I can now take a day off and still earn money!”

Luan Wise successfully scaled her one-woman business with the help of Nimble. In her words, ‘My Nimble courses now provide a significant income stream for my business, without requiring additional time input from me. I sell the courses via my website and carefully selected affiliates, who also sell online.’

Avoiding "remote control" learning

Having taught at a sixth form college for over 20 years, I often hoped that a remote control for my students would be invented that allowed me to push buttons entitled ‘BE QUIET!’, ‘SUBMIT HOMEWORK’ and rather selfishly ‘AT LEAST LOOK AS IF YOU ARE INTERESTED’. The genius that produced such a device would surely be richer than Zuckerberg and more revered throughout the teaching world!

Training IS sales!

Over the years I have come to appreciate that whether we are preparing for a face to face training delivery or designing eLearning, there are direct correlations between training and sales. We all know that we need to engage with our learners so that they ‘buy in’, and looking at training from a sales perspective has been extremely helpful. There are three specific points to consider.

eLearning - with personality

eLearning needs to be enjoyable, interesting, flexible and a means to consolidate knowledge. These were the goals of clothing retail giant, Cotton Traders, when they set out to introduce eLearning into their Contact Centre.

Cotton Traders opened in 1987, a business started by two stars of rugby union, Fran Cotton and Steve Smith. They began by selling sportswear and have now expanded their clothing retail empire with over one hundred shops in Britain and an online outlet.

Using filters

Using filters can refine more than just coffee!

The thing with data is that you can spend ages analysing it. It can appear amorphous and complex, and organising it into something meaningful can involve even more time; what’s more, the categories you use for one purpose may not suit the next one, so you go back to the beginning.

To paraphrase the old adage: data can be the thief of Time!
