Unit 4 - FAQs


How long will it take me to complete this course?

This course should take you a day to complete - and that includes doing all the action steps!


Do I have to have a product to do this course?

Yes, you are going to need to have some kind of digital product to sell in order to do this course. I have designed this course specifically with online course creators in mind, but it will work for most types of digital product (ebook, cheatsheets, printables etc.)

(No product to sell? Head to ONLINE COURSE JUMPSTART and learn how to create and launch a successful online course in just 8 week!)


Do I have to have a blog to do this course

I have designed this course with bloggers in mind, but no you don't technically have to have a blog to do this course. However you do need to have a way of getting new subscribers regularly. A blog will help you with this, but it's not strictly a prerequisite for doing this course, if you can get new subscribers onto your list another way.


Is there any benefit to doing this course but not doing the action points?

Nope! You will only see results from this course if you do the actions too!!


I am a total newbie to evergreen sales funnels, will I be able to understand this course?

Absolutely! I have designed this course assuming you have no prior knowledge of evergreen sales funnels. I use ‘normal person’ English and explain all the evergreen sales funnel jargon. But if you do get stuck, please let me know – either by emailing me or asking in the Productive Blogging Inner Circle.


I have a bit of experience with evergreen sales funnels, will this course be too easy for me?

That depends on how much experience you have and how much success you have had in the past. This course has been designed with evergreen sales funnel beginners in mind, but it would also be suitable for anyone who has created unsuccessful evergreen sales funnels in the past or who needs help making their existing evergreen sales funnel work better.

If you have previously created a successful evergreen sales funnel and are already very familiar with Deadline Funnel*, this course will probably be too easy for you.


Will there be any additional costs or hidden charges?

There are two things you will need to spend money on in order to complete this course:

  1. A good quality email service provider (e.g. ConvertKit*)
  2. Deadline Funnel

It may be that your existing email service provider is sufficient. In which case, you will not need to spend any additional money here. However, evergreen sales funnels requires certain more advanced email marketing features, which not all email service providers offer, so you may need to upgrade.

However, one thing you will definitely need, if you want to create an effective evergreen sales funnel, is Deadline Funnel*. This clever bit of tech will allow you to create individualized, subscriber-specific deadlines which automatically redirect from your offer sales page to your regular sales page when the countdown hits zero. It will also allow you to place countdown timers in your sales emails and on your sales page, further reinforcing your hard deadline. This genius piece of tech is not free... but set things up right and it should more than pay for itself!


Can I do this course in any order?

I wouldn’t recommend that approach. I have deliberately created this course in a specific order, as I think this is the best way to approach evergreen sales funnels. I also assume knowledge from previous units as you progress through the course and I assume that you have done the actions in the previous units too! 


When does the course start and finish?

The course starts now and never ends! It is a completely self-paced online course - you decide when you start and when you finish.


How long do I have access to the course?

How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own.
