Take Advantage Of Your Lockdown Time With LinkedIn Learning

EdX and Coursera may not have caught your interest, but if you have LinkedIn Premium, take advantage of their educational platform, LinkedIn Learning! There’s some excellent courses there, and I’m particularly fond of their series options. The series consist of multiple courses in one area, which means you get a more all-around education. Future or new entrepreneurs can really benefit from that, or if you need a new skill for work, you might find what you’re looking for here. These aren’t college classes, but instead lead by top people in their fields, so expect a more experience-driven lesson.

Become A Small Business Owner

This series covers the basics of entrepreneurship from writing a business plan, managing the financial side, and even balancing a new business with a personal life (something I’ve never mastered!). With seminars from Guy Kawasaki, Dave Crenshaw, and Dana Robinson, you’ll get advice from people who have already been there and done that.

Become A Marketing Specialist

If you’re struggling to market your business and bring in customers, take this crash course in marketing strategy. You’ll learn about branding, market analysis, designing campaigns, and writing copy. By the end, you should be able to create a comprehensive marketing plan that’s sure to be effective and help you grow your business.

Become A Content Strategist

If you’ve dreamed of becoming a freelance content creator, this course can help you get started. You’ll learn about content marketing, writing for blogs, newsletters, and other formats, and what makes pieces go viral. It’s not as easy as just slapping words on a page! If you take this, I strongly recommend taking the marketing course as well, because they share overlap in practice that will come in handy.

Improve Your Web Design Coding Skills

If you don’t yet have the budget to hire a professional web designer, you can do a lot with a template and some good old-fashioned know-how. This course will teach you basics on how to edit and modify templates, or even build a simple website. You won’t be the most high-tech person around, but even a baseline knowledge can come in extremely useful.

Become A Product Photographer

For those starting a business selling crafts or other physical products, this course is a must. You’ll learn how to take great photographs for advertising, use lighting to your advantage, and edit photos for the best results. Bloggers may also found this course to be useful, if you’re struggling with getting great photos of fashion or food for your posts.

Use your new free time wisely to get ahead or build a new career and take some courses to help you along the path. There’s so many great options out there that you’re sure to find something that fits your needs.

    These sound like very good courses! I’m personally doing one on Coursera now, but I might check out Linkedin learning when I’m done.

    There’s a lot of free distance learning courses you can do online, I’ve done a couple of them over the years when I’ve had some excess free time. Always useful to pick up a few new skills
