Learn The Digital Skills You Need to Work From Home Online
Matt Raad: Hi, it’s Matt and Liz Raad here and we’re really excited to show you a new income skill that you can literally learn in just 10 days or less. And of course, it’s about how we can use websites to create cash-flow and be able to work from home.
Liz Raad: In our signature web design course we teach our students how to build a money making website and how to start an online business. They learn how to create the most incredible websites in just 10 days or less which is an incredibly valuable skill in this new digital economy.
These websites can become valuable online assets for the future. So, we really want to start out by showing you what’s possible (when you know what you’re doing) and how to build a website. This is one of those skills for the future that you can take in all sorts of directions.
Mum of Two Uses Her New Digital Skills to Replace Her Income And Work from Home
A great example is Rawina, one of our recent graduates. When she started to retrain in Digital Marketing with us at the eBusiness Institute, she was working in a warehouse for $25 an hour. She really wanted to do something different with her life, and also be able to work from home so she could spend more quality time with her two young kids.
This is the very first website she built. I know it might not look fancy to you, but she sold that website and made $2,000 profit working from home.
Matt: She did this while she was learning the skill of building websites. It’s not a bad result to earn while you learn.
Liz: Now she’s gone on to be offered jobs paying over $120,000 a year because of the web design skills that she’s developed. This is based on the foundations that she’s learnt here with us that you’re going to see shortly.
Couple Add Over $100,000 In Revenue to Their Existing Business by Using Digital Skills
Jo and her husband own a dental practice, and she wanted to improve her existing dental practice website. By using the elements that are taught in our Web Dev accelerator Program they added more than $100,000 to the bottom line of their business.
Now in the dental niche these are really high leveraged websites because every new customer is worth so much money. And we have got a wide range of graduates that are making full time incomes online using these same digital skills.
Even complete beginners online can retrain in digital skills that make money
Matt: What I want to point out – if you’re sitting there thinking “I’ve never been online, or “I don’t have the technical skills”, these people were all beginners once upon a time just like you. Some of them didn’t even know where emails went or didn’t know how computers worked at all.
If you’re on a computer right now you can learn these skills, and this is what we love doing at the eBusiness Institute. We love breaking down what looks to be really complex into practical money-making online skills, and particularly so that you can work from home.
Reskilling in A New Digital Marketplace to create cash flow and digital assets
Liz Raad: It’s fantastic, and that’s one of our missions and the reason we created the eBusiness Institute. Our background is in buying, renovating and selling traditional businesses valued at up to $20 million. We then took those skills online and we’ve been buying and renovating websites for the last decade.
Over that time, we’ve become mentors, angel investors, and educators. We’ve taken people through this process from absolute beginners to earning full-time income online. And what we’ve realised is that the foundations are where it’s at. This is where we can empower people the most – by giving them those skills for life that they can use to generate income online in all different ways. And to be able to go forward and actually leverage these skills in this new digital marketplace.
Protect yourself from job loss…
Because let’s face it, things have changed over the last few years. This is certainly true in the marketplace now. We’re looking at an age where we’ve got digitization, and we’ve got pressure for jobs. I know we get lots and lots of our students coming to us saying “my job has changed”, “I’ve lost my job”, “I’ve been retrenched”, “I need to do something different” etc. Or perhaps they’re just sick of the daily commute and they’re wanting to do work from home. They want to be able to enjoy a bit more freedom in their life, during their working hours.
Warren Buffet is one of our great mentors, and I really agree with what he says here:
“If you don’t find a way to make money while you sleep, you will work until you die.” – Warren Buffet
Using Websites to Create Alternative and Passive Income Streams
Matt: Liz and I have a lot of experience buying and selling bricks and mortar businesses. But for us – being online is an absolute no-brainer. Particularly in this day and age because you’re getting such fast growth rates with websites.
But the main reason why we started earning online is because we had two young kids ourselves and we wanted to work from home. We wanted the freedom and being online allows you to do that. More importantly, being online allows you to literally make money while you sleep.
Automated Websites that Make Money While You Sleep provide income protection in these uncertain times…
Most of the websites that we own are making us money while we sleep and they’re basically automated. Now of course this protects us, this gives us an extra layer of security. It’s not reliant on the hours that we work, so you may need to be thinking about that in your current work situation. As Liz said, we have a lot of clients who are getting retrenched or their job roles are just changing because of the digital shift.
Most importantly, something else that Warren Buffet talks about these days is that in the current economy, wages alone are not enough to get you wealthy anymore. You need assets that grow, and can give you leverage beyond swapping your time for money.
Robert Kiyosaki in “Rich Dad Poor Dad” talks a lot about this, and he explained it really well. You need alternative assets. Traditionally these asset types have been shares or real estate. These types of assets have their own risks in the current marketplace. And we know there are a lot of people who don’t want to take the big risk of outlaying lots of money to get into the real estate market or buying more shares etc. at the moment.
For us, having this skill of being able to create a really good money making website, it’s a no brainer. There’s no risk in terms of the money that you outlay for it. You’re building this yourself and you’re basically building your own alternative income stream and that can be your long-term security.
Digital skills and micro-credentials are a smart way to future proof your income…
Liz: When it comes to retraining with website skills – you’re basically able to create websites that make money, or be able to create websites that you can sell. It is a very fast skill to learn. This is one of our passions, we love working with absolute beginners and they can retrain in digital within weeks. One of the things we do is run a 10-day challenge. Our students build their very first website within 10 days. It’s very exciting!
These certified digital skills also valuable micro-credentials. That’s one of the reasons why we’ve launched the eBusiness Institute is that we can actually give you certification in web design skills which is a valuable micro-credential to have on your resume.
We also teach the practical foundations of how to search engine optimise a website so that it comes up in search results when someone Googles a particular business or a particular topic.
Matt: That’s a hugely valuable skill to any employer out there. As is knowing how to market it. It’s not just about building a website. Anybody can teach you how to build a website; there’s lots of free courses out there.
The real skill is understanding the online marketing side. Knowing how to lay out the website so that it actually makes money. But also, so that it works well online and gets people to take action. This is a digital skill you want to be good at. These are highly valuable skills that is worth money not just to yourself, but maybe to a potential employer because not many people know how to do this properly.
Liz: And even managing websites. There’s a whole range of skills here that you’re going to learn that will really increase your value as either an employee or as your own business owner, being able to own a portfolio of online assets.
The great thing here is we can do this working from home. It is all online and it gives you a great degree of flexibility so yo can work from wherever you want as long as you have an internet connection.
As you saw from our example with Ra, you can also earn while you learn. Even with your very first website, you can potentially sell or make money from it.
Make Money Online by Helping Other Businesses Make Money
The great thing is you get to help people. This is something I think a lot of people don’t realise when getting into this kind of marketplace. With the kind of websites we teach how to build they are actually in the business of helping other people to:
- Find what they want,
- Solve their problems, or
- Answer their questions.
And we can help people make more money out of their businesses by driving new leads from having an effective online presence.
A great example of this is from one of our graduates, Yen. He built a website for his mate who is in property services. Within a couple of months of this website being built and launched, his mate signed over $66,000 in jobs. He would never have got these jobs if he didn’t have this website, and that’s really exciting!
Actually, the feedback we get from so many of our students is they are really excited to change other people’s lives. They’re using their digital skills to help other people’s businesses by getting them online and building them a website that actually generates them leads and sales.
21-Year-Old Uses Digital Skills to Help her Family’s Business Increase Sales
And now this is Holly, she started with us when she was just 14 years old, sitting in the workshop and listening in with her mum and dad. Her first website build was for her family business. She’s now built her family business an asset that generates leads and sales for the family.
Holly has just turned 21. She now owns her own company and makes money building websites for others. She works full time from home, and she said to me the other day, “All my friends have to go off to work, and they have to work set hours, and they have to beg for leave.” She said, “You know, I just organise my time around how I want to work.”
Matt: And interestingly, while she was training with us and attending our web design classes, she was overseas in England on a working holiday. Even then she was helping people by building websites. So, I do want to reiterate something with this online space – you can learn, earn and “work from home”. That’s what Liz and I do ever since we have been online and the majority of our clients want to work from home. And we know that if you’re a bit younger (or you’ve got kids around Holly’s age), then our younger students love this idea of the laptop lifestyle of being able to work overseas while they’re travelling and actually earning money.
Building Websites as Digital Assets to Make Passive Income Online
Liz: I think a lot of people don’t realize this, but websites are valuable assets. When you can build a website it’s almost like you get the skills of building a house. Building something that is going to increase in value over time and generate a return on your investment.
The wonderful thing about websites is, you don’t have to outlay hundreds of thousands of dollars like you would have to be able to build a bricks and mortar business. You can actually do this in your own spare time, and you can use your own labour if you want to. You can basically, do it almost for free if you wanted to. Or, you can start outsourcing and getting other people to help you do it as well.
But the great thing is that we can do this with no debt, very little costs, and you can build these digital assets that will grow in value.
“We’re in a time in history where the digital economy is only going to get bigger and bigger and more and more valuable”. – Liz Raad
We can start building these little assets that are going to grow over time.
Let’s have a look at some of the other things you can do by retraining with these digital skills; by learning how to build a good website that can generate leads, sales and profits for either yourself or for someone else.
Strategy One: Secure your job or get a new job by upskilling with Digital Skills
First of all you can get a career or new job once you have upskilled in digital. We’ve had lots of students who’ve been offered new jobs and secured their positions because of their new digital skills.
As an example, someone who is working in a small business and are maybe about to get retrenched. They can say to the business, “You know I can now manage your website for you, and help generate more leads and profits for the business.” Suddenly this person becomes invaluable to the organsiation.
Of course, there’s also careers in digital marketing, webdesign and search engine optimisation. For a digital marketing manager salary here in Australia, the average median wage is almost $80,000 a year. And that is constantly increasing. And just to make a comparison – if you complete a five-year law degree (to become an attorney or a lawyer), the median salary of a lawyer is less than that of a digital marketing manager, which is very interesting.
Student Uses Digital Skills to Work from Home remotely for Large American Company
Matt: I’ll share a great example, we’ve had one of our graduates who lives in Adelaide, South Australia. Helen was headhunted and got a job with a big American firm.
She retrained with us in digital and using these new skills she is now able to work from home. She’s obviously qualified to do the work and so she helps them on their digital marketing and building websites. She learnt how to build really beautiful websites.
You can get jobs with big companies from overseas because it’s virtual. Don’t just think it has to be here in Australia.
“If you’ve got good, practical digital skills (and some marketing skills), the world’s your oyster in terms of employers.” – Matt Raad
Strategy Two: Make Money Building Websites For Others
Liz: The next thing you can do is create cash-flow. And like you saw from the examples we’ve been giving, these students are building websites for other businesses and then selling (and managing) those websites for those businesses.
On average, the websites that they build are between $3,000 to $5,000 per build. And when you think about it this its a smart investment for teh local business. The business makes an investment in their online advertising (in their marketing) through their website, which is the way that businesses need to connect with people online now.
Matt: And I’m really excited about this strategy because this is one of the ways that we’ve seen work the quickest in terms of getting quick cash-flow for our graduates.
If you need to work from home this is probably one of the quickest ways we’ve seen our graduates earn money from building websites. Here’s why: Its easy to do once you know how and most importantly there is a great demand for good websites from Australian businesses.
In fact a recent study revealed that 59% of small businesses in Australia don’t have a website!
That’s a marketplace size of around 1,100,000 million small businesses in Australia that need a website built for them or who need to get online!
This large number represents a major opportunity for our students reskilling in digital to make money building websites for others.
And this is exactly what our graduates have found in the process of building websites for clients – that there’s a lot of businesses out there that are desperate for websites, and they don’t know how to do it themselves. This is how our students are able to earn while they’re learning.
Interestingly the same study found that small business decision makers on average expect a web designer to charge around $3,200 to build a fully functioning business website.
How to start a web design business from home
When studying with the eBusiness Institute, we get our students to start out small, and work with some really small businesses. They build websites for very low amounts, just to get into the market and to get experience with the process of building a website for a client.
Liz: This is to get experience, and get you started.
Matt: You might only charge $500 to build a website. But this is better than spending money for textbooks and studying at University for years earning nothing during that time. You can get out there and gently start building websites for others; using this time to see what it’s like working with these businesses, and watch the results whilst you’re also building your own websites on the side.
This is the quickest way we have seen our students replace their PAYG income after retraining with us. You could be earning six figures again once you get good at this, working from home.
For example, this couple quit their 9-5 corporate grind using this strategy
Liz: We’ve got lots of interviews on our MattandLizRaad YouTube channel. You’ll see examples of graduates who are building websites for money; from oil rig workers to lawyers, doctors, police officers, senior managers and all sorts of people who’ve replaced their PAYG 9-5 incomes using this strategy.
Strategy Three: Building Automated Websites to Make Passive Income Online
The third strategy that we and a lot of our students use is to build a portfolio of websites to generate automated income. So, this is going beyond building websites for local businesses. It is stepping up to create websites that make money from automated strategies such as advertising and affiliate programs.
This is a way to create online income from anywhere in the world and quit swapping time for money.
This is a strategy that gives you a lot more security in terms of diversity and in terms of earning income from all different countries if you want to. It is a very leveraged strategy to because it frees you timewise – you don’t have to work 9-5 on these websites!
From Seamstress to Making 6 Figures Working from Home Online
A great example is one of our graduates (Chriss), who started out on our original strategy of buying websites for profit. She was a seamstress with a not so certain job or income and she wanted to start earning some good stable income for herself. After buying a few websites for her digital portfolio, she thought, “I can make websites and earn money from home“.
She started building her own portfolio of websites using our strategies. And she’s making a six-figure income working from home in rural Victoria with the websites that she’s built. Now, this is a longer-term strategy; it took her a couple of years to get that all set up and working.
Matt: But what a fantastic result for Chriss, working from home in a rural area of Victoria. Because here’s the other thing – if you’re in a rural area (or an isolated area), as long as you’ve got internet access you can be making income online from your home. We have numerous students where this strategy is either an additional income for them, or it can become their full-time income (once you get good at it).
Strategy Four: Buying and Selling Websites for Profit
Liz: Moving onto our fourth (and most exciting) strategy that we teach, which is How to buy and sell websites for profit. Here, we’re gaining leverage by actually buying profitable websites that are already set up, already making money, and already have everything in place. We just buy that whole digital asset and start earning that income instantly.
This is the strategy that we use (and have been using for the last decade) to build up our online portfolio of digital real estate. Our students are also using this to build up their portfolios much faster. It really leverages that growth and the online income coming in.
How to Successfully Create Online Income from Websites – The Advantages Retraining In Digital With The E-Business Institute…
Let’s have a look, what’s the secret to success in this? Well, because we’ve been teaching people for so long (and by doing it ourselves), we’ve seen some common elements. These are things that have really created success and made a difference for people who are trying to learn how to build a website and make money online. Rather than randomly trying to pick it up online, our students are able to actually get in and make this happen relatively quickly, and are quitting their jobs and making money from home.
First of all, they had a system and a smart strategy to follow. You can’t just jump into a marketplace and just randomly build stuff. You need to be smart about it, there’s some research that you need to do. There’s some things you need to set in place before you get started.
Matt: There’s a certain way you need to lay out the website.
Liz: Yes, and we notice that the more support we can give, the better those results. So, for someone going through this digital reskilling process, it’s about having us there to answer questions. If you’re thinking, “Oh my goodness, is this right? “How do I do that?”, you can email us and we’re there to support you.
Matt: Even if it’s just to have a quick look over the website or something like that, it’s good to have that support.
Liz: Yes, having that support as you start to retrain, especially in that beginning phase. Because obviously when you first start out learning how to earn money online it can get a bit confusing, especially if it’s absolutely brand new to you. So, having that support there keeps people moving forward we noticed.
Matt: And part of that support is our amazing community. We have a private Facebook page for our student members, where they’re helping each other and sharing experiences.
Liz: That’s incredibly valuable for your mindset as well. You can see right in front of you, all these real people making money online right now in this current marketplace.
And the third thing is their websites work. Our students designed and built these websites using our formula; so they actually do rank in the search engines, they actually do generate profits, leads, sales and calls for businesses (or for themselves). When a website gets ranking and it shows up in Google, and it’s actually generating leads and sales – that’s really exciting.
Learn How to Start An Online Business that works…
Our goal here is to make that process a lot easier for you. At the eBusiness Institute, we deliver those smart strategies. We deliver the support and the help for you to be able to actually achieve this so that you can quit your job and/or work from home.
And to do this, we’ve designed our foundational web design online training course which is the first step towards you making this kind of income online and using websites to generate cash-flow for yourself.
We call this program the WebDev Accelerator because basically you’re becoming a website developer (or designer). But we’re not using any coding, and we’re not getting into the awful detail of having to learn all the technical nitty gritty. What we are doing is giving you exactly what you need to know to be able to create a successful money making website as quickly as possible with the marketing foundations in place as well.
Like Matt said earlier, we’re very good at taking big complex concepts, and distilling them down so you just get exactly the core knowledge you need. And in just eight hours of online web design classes, you’re going to see exactly what works for all our students and gives them the results that they are aiming for.
Matt: This is based on 10 years of coaching people in online marketing and seeing what works and what doesn’t.
Introducing WebDev Accelerator – an Online Program to Learn how to Build Websites for Profit
Liz: So, let’s take a look at what this Ecourse looks like. We will give you a peek inside and see how it works and how it can help you retrain in valuable digital skills.

We go through the whole process with you. Basically, we get you prepared for launch, everything that you need to put in place before you even get started with your online business.
Module 2 – How to Setup Your Online Accounts
Here we show you the basics of the best tools to use to operate your online business. Mostly these tools are free. The only thing that you really need to pay for initially is hosting, which costs around $10 to $15 a month for a website. So, it’s not a huge cost in order for you to get started to make money online. With the online tools and services that we recommend – these are free, and you can upgrade later if you want to. But it’s always free to start.
Module 3 – SEO Training For Beginners
This module is all the shortcuts you need for effective SEO of your websites. SEO is ‘Search Engine Optimisation, and this is the skill that allows you to build a website that actually gets ranked in the search engines. And there’s some really foundational SEO for beginners lessons in this excelletn course. For example, how you can look at your competitors and learn from their SEO, and how to know what to put on your webpage to make it rank in Google.
Module 4 – How To Lay Out Your Website with Site Mapping
Then we look at how to lay out your first website so that the search engines love it, and that what’s called site mapping. This is like laying out your plan for the website. This means that when you actually go to build your website, you’re going to build something really great.
Module 5 – Creating a High Performing Website Home Page
Now we want to lay out your homepage so that you actually get sales and get those phone calls. This E-course is focused on learning how to build websites for local businesses because we have found this is where you’re going to get the fastest and best results as a beginner online.
We have students who launched their websites and are ranking in Google on front pages within weeks which is really exciting. There’s a real opportunity in the marketplace right now with local business websites in Australia.
“There’s this rare moment in time (especially in Australia) for people to rank local websites.”
Now’s the time to get in and do that. And what’s great – is once you’ve learnt how to build local business websites (getting those quick, easy wins), now you can apply the same knowledge to your portfolio sites (automated websites).
Module 6 – Learn How To Build A Website
This is where we guide you through step-by-step on the website build. I’ll show you how it should look so you know how it’s going to go. I’ll tell you exactly where to click and how to do it – everything you need to do to finish your website build.
Teach Yourself Web Design In Just 10 Days!
Liz: At the end of those six modules, you’ll be able to build your very own website.
Now you can copy mine and build a dentist website. As you saw from our earlier example, websites can generate dentists a huge amount of profit. Based on the feedback from the dentists that we have on our courses, they pay $10,000 to $20,000 and above for a website like this. You’ll be able to build a website like that after eight hours of training and you’ll be able to build it well. So this is the website you’re going to be able to build using this online training; or you can build any website for any business that you like.
Ongoing Support for Successful Online Learning
As well as the step-by-step online training modules, we also give you full email support. That way, if there’s anything you don’t understand as you’re going through the course, you can just email in and we will help you out, or we’ll guide you to where you can find the answers to your particular questions.
This is one of those things that we’ve seen be very powerful for anyone who’s beginning and new to this. Getting these foundational skills, and having that support is really invaluable.
Matt: Even better you’ll get a personal website review. Our amazing student support team (based in Australia) are past graduates of ours and are very experienced with our program.
Liz: They’ll go through your website with you, so you can book in a call with them and they’ll make sure everything’s all in place and that you haven’t missed anything and give you some suggestions for maybe how you could improve it even more. So you get to talk to someone live who is an expert with our course and strategies.
Matt: For instance you may have seen Calem, he quit his corporate job after retraining in digital with us and he now builds websites for Channel 10, you can read the article on our blog to learn how he was able to quit his job and live the laptop lifestyle. So you’ll get to work with our team, and they can help go over your website with you.
Online Web Design Certificate for Successful Completion Of Course
Get micro credentials & certification in website design
Liz: One of the other things we think is really important is to be able to show that you’ve officially retrained with valuable digital skills. You want to be able to show your micro-credentials to an employer or a potential customer (if you’re building websites for local businesses) that you have completed a digital training course and are certified in website development.
For this, we provide you with a Certificate of Completion for web design. This is an official Certificate of Completion from the eBusiness Institute laying out the modules that you have done.
So when you do your call with one of our tech trainers, they will go through and make sure you have everything in place. If so, they’ll issue you with your web design qualifications and certificate of completion so that you have a record of what training you’ve completed successfully with the E-Business Institute. You’ll also get 2x online web design certificate badges that you can place on your own website so you can display your skills and qualifications from the eBusiness Institute.
Bonus Website Training in Digital Marketing
The other thing that we include in the WebDev Accelerator web design program is a new bonus online education course, called the Kickstarter Program.
This home learning ecourse is another six hours of bonus digital training where we take you through a 20-point checklist to assess a website.
If you were going into a business to help them with their online presence (or if you wanted to do this with some websites you already own), you can use this checklist to assess any website for its effectiveness, and then have 20 strategies to increase leads and profits for that website.
You can use this checklist to get some shortcuts and get ahead of the game online. You’ll also get another certificate of completion from the E-Business Institute for this course as well. So, in total you will have two certificates of completion when you study your digital education training with us.
