A message from our CEO Stefan Wesley
Dear Entrepreneurs, Freelancers, Digital Agencies and Business Owners,
This year almost every business on the planet has been forced to change the way they operate, and with lockdown restrictions forcing businesses into a digital transformation, it’s been a year with a steep learning curve. At Sigma Digital we were very lucky that we had already made the jump to remote working for our entire team in July 2018. Naturally being in this situation we had the advantage of being as prepared as possible to continue to work effectively with our clients throughout the Covid-19 Pandemic. For this reason, we took a step back and looked at what we could do to help businesses continue to trade and transition to an online sales model using our skills and expertise in online marketing.
This is where the concept for The Digital Commando Academy was born, and the team started working on a series of modules that we could share with businesses. We also took into account that many employees may find themself furloughed or worst case unemployed, so we also made sure to create useful content to mentor those that may well be seeking an opportunity to work for themselves as a Digital Freelancer. We set ourselves a goal of 1000 businesses that we wanted to bring onto our platform and empower with the necessary skills and expertise to continue their business growth despite the numerous Covid related barriers in their way.
The Digital Commando Academy initially provided training for Entrepreneurs, Freelancers, Digital Agencies, and Business Owners in everything from how to set up a Facebook Page to creating bespoke, high-converting sales funnels, we also included training in Social Media Management, Facebook Advertising, and Building Chatbots. Our next challenge was to let everyone know about this superb online training that we had designed to help businesses…
…so we launched The Digital Commando Show! I sourced and interviewed over 100 high profile guests LIVE Online and streamed 50 episodes to over 1,700,0000 people in the UK! The show gave struggling entrepreneurs tips and advice from a wide range of industry experts sourced from the UK, Dubai, Australia, and the USA. Each day they covered topics such as How do you Practice Gratitude, how to workout at home, and How to Stay Productive while working from home. The show went down a storm and the feedback from viewers and listeners was absolutely amazing, so I thank all of you that tuned in and took the time to comment and share it with friends and colleagues that may have been in a dark place.
Following the success of the show, it was back to the Academy which was launched in May alongside our free weekly Digital BootCamp webinar. We are proud to say that the number of Entrepreneurs, Freelancers, Digital Agencies, and Business Owners we have worked with to date has now reached 545, a number that is growing daily. We are convinced there are more businesses out there that can take advantage of the awesome training provided inside of our academy. Due to high demand, we have also added 3 additional modules for everyone such as SEO (Search Engine Optimisation), to show businesses how to get their website to the top of Google’s search results, LinkedIn Training for Businesses, showing you how to generate new leads, and Accounting for Startups, giving you an overview of the best practices and software to make your accounting as simple as possible. We will also be adding in How to create and launch a PodCast, and YouTube Training in the next 30 days and will continue to grow the content inside of the academy upon the request of the businesses that have joined.
One last thing we have done to make the Academy more accessible to the SME market and help us reach our target of 1000 businesses by the end of 2020 is to reduce the subscription price from £997 to just £99 per year for everyone who joins before the 1st of January 2021. We also offer a 100% money-back guarantee within the first 14 days if you are not happy with the training which we are proud to say has not been used by anyone to date. If this sounds like it could be of benefit to you then head over to digitalcommando.uk or click here and we look forward to seeing you on the inside.
The Team and I wish all of you the best of luck in the coming months and we are always on hand to help in whatever way we can so please do not hesitate to reach out and say hi!
