RealBasics Recommends: Niamh Arthur’s 4-week Ignite Video Challenge online course

This is a plug for a paid-for online video blogging course.  This post includes a direct link and an affiliate link to the course (you can choose either.) I recommend it highly to clients who are interested in a safe, supportive environment for learning how to do video blogging.  If you’re not into that you can scroll down.

Earlier this summer I told quite a few clients about a great video-blogging course called the Ignite Video Challenge. It runs a few times a year on Facebook and she’s offering it again.

If I did mention it I probably also said that based on almost 10 years working with instructional designers at Microsoft it’s the best run and most useful online course I’ve ever seen.

The course is only $20 for four weeks. It’s all done on Facebook, in small, private groups where you get to see each other’s work, and where only positive and encouraging comments are welcome. Because everyone is nervous! I may also have mentioned how sorry I was it’s only offered a few times a year.

The good news is the course is back. Signup is this week.

Niamh (pronounced “Neve”) is unbelievably reassuring, supportive, and informative in her video instructions — her videos are usually about three minutes long with another minute or two where she practices what she’s just preached to give you an idea what she has in mind.

The main thing, though, is it’s actually really fun! And only takes maybe 10 or 15 minutes a day at the most! And you really do learn all the essentials for how to record a video, how to be yourself in front of a camera, and how to upload it to Facebook, YouTube or other video platforms.

If you’re interested you can sign up one of two ways:

You can sign up directly here

Or if you’re ok with me getting a very small commission (the price to you is the same regardless) you can use this link to signup instead

Here are the other details

  • Sign Up Week: Thursday, September 5th to Wednesday, September 11th
  • Closes at midnight Pacific on September 11th OR when they sell out all spots, whichever happens first.
  • Challenge begins: Monday, September 16th to Tuesday, October 8th.
  • Cost for the Challenge is only $20.

Let me know what you think!

David Innes,
