Today I have discovered an online education and training website called Grovo. It boast of more than a thousands of tutorials of various Internet products like Facebook, Google, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest and so on. The lessons are presented by a series of simple to understand video tutorials. Each lesson is  between 1-2 minutes long. The courses are straight-forward. Once you have completed the basic lessons, you can proceed to a more advance lessons.  You can test what you have learned by taking the quizzes after each lesson. Once you have finish a course, you can also get a certification of  your favorite Internet application. If you want to know more, click on Grovo. Sign up is free and easy using your Facebook account.


I am a member of OMC2

It is a good feeling to be a member of a group or an organization. I am excited just knowing that I will learn and acquire a lot of good things from the group. And that means a lot.  That is what I felt when I joined the Online Mentoring Club.

The Online Mentoring Club 2 or OMC2, for short, is an exclusive online community of new and aspiring online marketers created and mentored by Jomar Hilario. Jomar is one of the top Online Marketers in the Philippines. He has also hired Virtual Assistant (VA) extensively in his Internet Marketing work making him as an expert in training and hiring VAs in the Philippines. Look up Jomar’s  Internet Marketing webpage.

The 2 in OMC2 means that the club is in its 2nd year now. The club recently opened its door to new members and I was one of those who were privilege enough to join at half the price of the joining fee.

The OMC2 learning program contains click by click tutorials.  In OMC2, I will be able to learn about Online Marketing for a year. Topics include:

  • Email Marketing
  • Online Selling
  • Credit Card Acceptance
  • Blogging
  • Facebook Promotions
  • Google Plus Promotions
  • Becoming a Virtual Assistant
  • Hiring a Virtual Assistant
  • Internet Basics
  • Autoresponders
  • Promotions and Search Engine Optimization.

I get to learn to do these things minus the technical terms so learning will be easy for an average non-techie guy like me. The learning facility is a Facebook-like learning ‘online classroom. Lessons will be delivered every month in a step by step easy to follow powerpoint tutorial. Coaching will be done through webinars and direct consultations with Jomar. I can also interact and share experiences with other members in the club forum.

What happens after a year? Well, I still get to be a member. Yes, membership is lifetime. This means I have access to the clubs resources and updates. Now that is far beyond my money’s worth.

Now I can begin. I am ready to learn.
