Kajabi Launches Flight Academy

Some people are going to be pissed!

Over the last couple weeks the Kajabi team released Flight Academy – an online training platform for those wishing to sell online. So here’s my…

 Review of Kajabi Flight Academy

Review Kajabi Flight AcademyIt is a solid training that starts with 30-days of “missions” designed to get you off the ground.

Moving onward, you also have access to the “Flight School” which covers areas such as Niche Research, Product Creation, Marketing Funnels, Customer Retention, and the “flight manual.”

With more and more content being added, why do I say some people are going to be “pissed off?”  Well they are giving…

Kajabi Can’t Bake a Cake…Yet.

I am wrapping up my visit to Kajabi HQ this week and my mind is swimming with ideas.

For those of you that don’t know, I decided to get on a long plane ride and make my way out to Kajabi headquarters to meet the team, get a few ideas, and see what they have in store for Kajabi users. Even as a beta tester in 2010, I had not been out to see them.

As usual, I am sworn to secrecy on some things, but here is what I can say about my trip at this point.

Commitment and Passion –

These are the two biggest qualities I look for in people when I first meet them. Sure, talent and ability are big, but I assume those qualities are already present.

I know plenty of talented people that have the “ability” to get something done – but without commitment and passion they always fall short of excellence.

I can convey that these guys live and breathe Kajabi. It is not some side project they are wrapping up and moving on to the next shiny object. These guys are in it for the long haul and it is great to see that level of dedication (that is Kenny and Travis in the photo with me).

“You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet”

I have to admit, I really love a lot of the features that Kajabi has. I kind of figured, going forward, they would pretty much be tightening up a few things, adding a couple cool widgets, and let it go. I couldn’t be more wrong.

What is Kajabi? I mean, I know what it is now but after listening to the Kajabi team talk about upcoming implementations (yes, this is the sworn to secrecy part) we are in for a game changer.

Don’t get me wrong, Kajabi won’t be replacing your Easy-Bake Oven or turning your tap water into gasoline, but it will change the way you look at everything with regards to marketing on the Internet. You truly will be limited only by your ideas, not implementing them.

Take Flight –

Every once in awhile there is a place for Internet entrepreneurs to get together and exchange ideas. Hey, there is plenty of business out there and I have no problem sharing information to help someone else – it all comes around. Flight Academy will be just that for Kajabi users.

Kajabi announced Flight Academy just a couple weeks ago, but I think it is the “missing link” for some Kajabi users – a place to get solid usable information as well as brainstorm new projects. Stay tuned for that one.

Revisit your ideas –

My biggest personal takeaway (other than needing to work on my basketball game) is that I need to throw every idea I have had in the last 10 years back on the table.

Having seen how many ways people are using Kajabi really opened my eyes.

Sure, we know what it looks like in the hands of the Internet Guru launching to thousands simultaneously – but what about the other guys? The ones that are using it for quick affiliate-only pages, membership portals, or bonus portals. Marketing with Kajabi covers a lot of ground when you think a bit outside the box.

So what about me?

First off, I am going to spend the next couple weeks outlining a plan to add new things to my business.

When I say “new things,” I mean projects that make money using Kajabi. Ideas that have been on the back burner have no excuse residing there any longer – it just too easy to implement them.

If you are already a Kajabi user, hang on; it is going to be a wild ride.

If you are not already in the Kajabi family I would say grab your boarding pass now. Order Kajabi and be ready to be a part of something fun, innovative, and the best part, profitable.

*Disclamier: The Godfadr is not an employee of Kajabi. He is an offline turned online entrepreneur that had the opportunity to beta test Kajabi before release. He spends his time riding his Harley, traveling, and enjoying life but knows you have to pay for that lifestyle somehow. He hates talking about himself in third person and will always give you a straight answer – even if it is not the one you want to hear.

How to Launch Products Online

So you have decided to put a stake in the ground and launch product online. There are plenty of pitfalls, so let’s make sure we are on the same page.

Your first Product Launch…

For starters, I hope you that you have your own product (or at least have re-written a product).

By that I mean you are not simply hoping to cash in big selling affiliate products off some sight a “guru” told you would make you millions (Rhymes with Mickbank).

Don’t get me wrong, there is a time and place for affiliate sales (like you when you have your own list) and you may do well – but for now lets keep these to the side.

So if you have your own product you are most likely going to look for some way to make it look good. You know…sell.

There are a couple ways to handle a product launch online. The best way is to look into some of the product marketing software options available to you.

Product Marketing Software – Cut corners and still look good.

Product Marketing SoftwareThe Kajabi platform is getting a lot of attention lately. Although the formal launch was in October, some online marketers have been using it most of 2010 – and with great results.

This system will work especially for those of you that want to deliver your product via video, save time, and create social interaction.

Please don’t sell me a PDF….really…

That is not to say that PDF reports are dead…just beginning to look more like 8-track tapes when compared to today’s marketing methods.

People want video. People want interaction. People want simple.

Sure, PDFs are “simple” but…yawn….boring! Think video. Whether on your WordPress or “regular” site is a discussion for another day. Grab an Amazon S3 account already and start delivering killer content.

In the beginning, just worry about Two Steps…

1. Create a quality product.

2. Deliver it in a way that people enjoy consuming it.

We can worry about the “rocket science” part of getting bigger (more sales and raving fans) once you get one under your belt.
