Unless you are planning on applying to work for a company you really have no need for a certificate, so I recommend you just take advantage of what you can learn and save your money to invest in your business.

Another option you might not be aware of is you can read and download electronic books like this one at no cost to you, and if you are interested in social media marketing this is a good one.

Videos

Another one of my favorites you all know and maybe use regularly for personal use, but for some reason, people often overlook watching videos online when it comes to their business. I have used Youtube for learning to accomplish many of my projects when I started out, and one of the most treasured memories is how to add an online store to WordPress. I could do this project in steps by stopping the video as I did each step, so I highly recommend you keep this in your business plan.

  1. When I was trying to figure something out a few months ago, someone mentioned to try YouTube. I was actually surprised that I hadn’t thought of it before. I use YouTube for different types of physical tasks, certainly they would have instruction for learning online tasks. I’ve definitely used YouTube much more since then.

    I didn’t realize there were so many free courses out there to learn most anything I need for an online business. I’m going to bookmark this site as there are so many courses listed on here, I don’t have time to read them all at once. Thank you for gathering all these wonderful resources!

  2. Thanks for this article. I have written down the sites that you provided and will be checking into them. This has been a great help. Thank you so much for sharing this.

  3. I often use Youtube to learn stuff for free, however, often times the videos there teach bad habits, don’t teach every step, or are just trying to sell you something. It’s a double edged sword is Youtube.

    What one really needs is something that’s comprehensive, covers all steps that one is studying, and doesn’t try to sell sell sell to you to get the rest of the information.

    One place I recommend is Wealthy Affiliate, where you can actually sign up completely for free and you can try them out by doing level one of the training for free. After doing level one, you’ll know for sure if it’s right for you to go premium. I’ve been there since July 2015 and haven’t felt an urge to leave the place yet.

    So it is possible to learn online for free, it’s just that you have to find something legitimate that isn’t full of upsells and high pressure tactics getting you to pay for stuff you don’t need.

    Thanks for the resources here.

    Regards,
    Jim

    1. Thank you, Bob
      I appreciate you sharing your experience as a member of Wealthy Affiliate,
      but Wealthy Affiliate is not a free resource and you can take advantage of
      the free resources online without buying unless you can’t resist the
      temptation

  4. HeyJeff, there is some priceless information here. I have bookmarked the post and will be referring to it when I need some help. Free quality training, lots of it, all in one place. Great job! Tim

  5. I’m actually a bit ashamed for even admitting this, but I think I’ve actually learned more useful information through YouTube than in my bachelor of technology program.

    I truly think we live in a unique time in human history. Never before has been so much knowledge attainable for free to almost anyone in the world.

    Now the problem with the online world is of course the huge amount of distractions. I mean I might go to YouTube to watch a tutorial on AutoCAD and end up wasting 2 hours watching funny animal videos, weightlifting channels, live concerts of artist I follow etc.

    I recently read there is about 80 years worth of content published on YouTube every DAY. The amount of information there alone is inconceivable. Not to mention the whole internet.

    I’m sure many people these days do what I do. Anytime I wonder how something works etc. I just Google it with my phone. This way we can actually use the internet as an Exo-memory. We are becoming digital beings in a sense and this is only going to go further with neurolinks and furter digitalization. I just hope the humankind is ready as there is so much dangerous like influencing individual opinions, identity theft etc. The line between information and misinformation has become vague.

  6. This is a great article and I shall be looking into these courses you have mentioned.
    I am especially interested in the social media learning course.
    I have got accounts with most social media sites and it would be great to learn how to properley promote a website using these means.
    I will bookmark your site. Thanks.

  7. This site was just recommended to me, expecting the same old same old – free check it out and for a small fee you’ll get…… To my surprise found this site to be true treasure trove of online information. I am going to go back over everything when I have a little more time to decide which course would best fit my needs. Thanks again for putting together a wonder resource.

    1. Thank you, Steve
      I did spend some time to find these free resources
      to share with you and my other readers, I feel I
      should be providing as many resources as possible
      to be a good mentor.

  8. Hi Jeff! Thank you for your article which is full of information especially benefit for those who are still a beginner in online business. I definitely need to save this page so that I can come back here again. Need time to digest all these information here…:-) Thank you!

  9. Good list of places to go for the education you need. You can take these resources, learn the information, and then due a trial business to make sure you got all the concepts down. Thanks for the information. Bob

  10. Hi Jeff, thank you for the article and valuable information. I love Coursera and have taken many courses on their website, from English writing to philosophy. Youtube is also fantastic, and I use it daily. I can’t wait to check out Udemy and the other programs in your article. Thank you again.

    1. Thank you, Janicke

      I am very happy you are taking advantage of these free resources,
      and there are many more online I just could not add them all in
      this one tutorial

      Jeff

  11. Hi Jeff,
    Thanks for this article. I have indexed your site so I can follow more of what you show here. I learned how to make my first fondant cake from Youtube. There are a lot of resources out there but this is the first time I have heard of Coursera. I will be heading there this weekend.

  12. This is an amazing collection of free training.

    Like others mentioned YouTube is amazing, there is an abundance of knowledge on there.
    I’ve fixed parts of my car, my fridge, meals, language studies, guitar, and just a ton of other things.

    Coursera is another great one.

    I bookmarked this page so I’ll be back, thanks for taking the time to put this together.

  13. Hi Jeff and thank you for sharing all of this information like this! I most definitely will return to it as I’m thinking of starting a podcast in the near future and know absolutely nothing about marketing. I’ve never in my life had a facebook account for example! So thank you, and have a wonderful day.

  14. Hey Jeff,

    First, I want to thank you for this post. I needed it! I am looking for different resources to learn everything about social media marketing. I never heard about Coursera before reading this post. It is incredible how much we can learn by just keep searching on the internet! I am so interested to learn all that stuff about social media, and I hope I can find the best training using Coursera. However, I have concerns about something. Every time I see training or a course for PPC or social media marketing, it is outdated and not useful anymore! Are all these courses and training here good and up to date?

    Thanks again for helping people find useful resources.

  15. Great article
    I like the free ways to learn. However these methods may need someone to be discipline and follow through.
    I like YouTube as I use it like you to check for step by step process I need.Many of the courses like Udemy are new to me.
    Thanx again

  16. Thank you for providing us the Coursera! While going through your pages, I discovered how many new things I need to study, now that I have started an affiliate marketing business!
    Your page has been saved to my favorites, so that I can access it right away!

    1. Thank you, Alexandra

      I am happy my tutorial was helpful to you,
      I have learned many of my business and marketing
      strategies from online courses

      Jeff
