Is there a method to my madness?Inspired by a Hangout I attended last week on hosting your courses on your own site, I have given a lot of thought as to why I am spending time promoting my courses on other sites. So I think it is time I shared some history of my own site with you.In 2010 I launched The Excel Club, which hosted one Excel course. I had the site built by developers in India and I was pleased with their work. I had the course accredited with some Accounting bodies here in Ireland for CPD and things worked very well. In 2012, I decided to go into partnership and expand the site to The Professional Training Academy, offering a suite of courses suitable for the CPD market. Such a lesion did I learn. We developed the site further, however there has been a serious breakdown between us and the developers. We cannot have any further amendments done and they will not hand over the source code. Foolish as we were, we have our hosting with them too. In addition to this, my business partner did not do as agreed or anticipated. In fact, he ended up doing very very little. Although the Professional Training Academy does host a suite of Business Skills courses and other courses, only the Excel courses really do well.Last summer I lost faith in the site, I was working to pay back a loan to the other director, and he would still have a shareholdings, and I didn’t have the source code to the site. I stopped working as an on-line educator. Come late December I found I was missing this a little so I decided late in December, I would utilise platforms such as Udemy
