Great Intro to Online Marketing Course
Pros: B school really opened my eyes as to what was possible for me as an online service provider/ course creator. The amount of information presented gives you a good understanding of what it takes to successfully market your online business. B school also provides two beginner or pre-courses to help you achieve the greatest success possible. If you are resourceful, patient and willing to do the work, you will find value in taking this course. I feel like it is a great pre-requisite online business marketing course. B school outlines the basics of building an online business in 6 modules.
Cons: The breadth of the course material can seem overwhelming to the beginner student. This is not the course that you can do alone without running into temporary dead ends or moments of frustration. You need to cultivate accountability partners to lean on and to help you get through those rough moments. For instance, I remember the website module posing a lot of difficulty for many of the students. I think part of this frustration also stems from the harsh reality that you need to invest more money into your business in order to do some of the things Marie suggests to grow your business.
For students who agonized over the cost of the course alone, the thought of putting in more money to build your website or add the other recommended services and platforms as per Marie’s suggestions can leave you feeling discouraged and frustrated.

B school also had a FB community for each class in addition to the ability to participate in live Q&A sessions to ask questions and get feedback.

Personally speaking, I didn’t get as much out of the Bschool FB community as I did with Amy Porterfield’s b school experience FB group. Amy Porterfield is an affiliate for B school and I would highly recommend doing b school through her as she and her team were really invested in making sure the students who signed up for B school through her were well taken care of.

Because I felt so well taken care of with the Amy’s Facebook community, I did not personally engage too much in The B School Facebook group.

When racial tensions exploded earlier this year, Team Forleo did not have a very good response in handling the heated discussions that were occurring within the B School Facebook group. It left many B school students feeling upset and censored. Team Forleo made steps to be sensitive to the needs of the Bschoolers in the group that included disabling comments outside of their office hours in order to allow for better control of the nature of the discussions. But because B schoolers are all over the world, it affected some students’ ability to engage in the group. Ultimately, Team Forleo decided to remove themselves from the Facebook group stating that the Facebook group was never part of the original B school plan. It was originally created by an alumni student who wanted to create a community for B Schoolers through FB. Regardless, this decision did not sit well with many B school Alumni as they felt abandoned in the whole process. Team Forleo decided that the best way they could address the need for inclusion and diversity was through Live panel discussions with successful B school BIPOC Alumni.
Ideal Customer: B school is perfect for the entrepreneur who already has some understanding of what their business idea or model is. It is mostly geared towards online business or services due to the heavy online marketing concentration. The successful B school student should be resourceful, open to learning, determined and coachable.
Additional Comments: I’d be really interested to see if Marie decides to add another module to her course given the need for diversity and inclusion competency in today’s business practices. Including this kind of training in her course outline would really make B school an even better program than it already is.

Doesn’t Live Up to Professed Values
Pros: Offers a good walkthrough of the basics of building a business
Cons: Major emphasis on being “heart-led” but let down her paid community by allowing racist members to harm BIPOC members, gaslighting BIPOC members herself about the racism they experienced, eventually promised to take the time to learn and do better and then went radio silent and bailed one month later bc it was too hard. Casual ableism in some of the video lessons.
Ideal Customer: Privileged entrepreneurs who want to be coddled instead of held accountable.
Additional Comments: Feel incredibly deceived and wish I hadn’t spent my money.

Love the founder but didn’t love the product
Pros: Marie is very knowledgeable and is the marketing queen. If you are a person with products to sell or have a very specific service you’d like to offer than you would gain lots from b-school. She takes you through a series of exercises to help you identify ideal customer, pricing strategies, and types of business models. She has a vault full of books with great info and provides you with great freebies. However, If you are like me a creative trying to navigate the uncharted waters of entrepreneurship at that time, you can save your few thousand dollars.
Cons: I was trying to figure out how to market my books as a self-published author at the time I took b-school. I am now a certified professional coach and it is still a bit overwhelming. It has too much information jam-packed into a six to eight week course. Not to mention Marie didn’t really do lives. If you post comments or questions in the actual course you will receive prompt responses however, the journey felt pretty lonely. Her physical presence wasn’t felt and that made it seem disheartening for all the money invested. There really wasn’t help with the part we (new entrepreneurs) struggle with most, accountability. Marie had a Facebook group for b-schoolers that helped tons. Unfortunately, that Facebook group was dissolved after some disputes occurred within the group involving the BLM movement. It was very unfortunate and heartbreaking to me as a BIPOC the way things ended. However, I am not in Marie’s shoes so I can’t speak for her side of things.
Ideal Customer: This product is perfect for small business owners who already have a lucrative business and are looking to scale up.
Additional Comments: This program helped me identify— the need to focus on building an email list. I did not make my few grand back that I invested and while I love Marie dearly, I wouldn’t recommend this product if you’re a newbie in the small business land.

High quality content
Pros: The quality of the content is fantastic.
Cons: It's isn't great for people just starting up. Some of the units are quite hard. As it isn't personalised, if you get stuck is difficult to move forward on your own.
Ideal Customer: Business owners that want to grow their businesses.

Human Design Projector guide & business mentor Belgium

Great business quick-starter
Pros: Great value for starters, lots of content to go through, structured in a sensible way. All you need to start your or boost your business, especially service-based and online.
Cons: There is no 1:1 support and no real accountability, so it's up to you to do the work and keep track of your progress.
Recently, the Facebook community was closed which actually takes away a lot of the value and the opportunity to network. You can still make use of the comment section below every lesson and module but it doesn't have that community feel which made the B-School experience unforgettable.
Ideal Customer: Service-based business-owners who want to start or boost their business, especially online, and especially if they're at the beginning of their journey.
Additional Comments: I actually would only recommend this program to starters who don't know much about marketing and want a solid introduction with strategies to experiment with. Maybe a little too expensive compared to the value you get, though.

Functional Medicine Health Coach United Kingdom

Beautiful course but I wish I’d invested in 1-1 support
Pros: Marie explains things brilliantly and does a good job teaching all the tech basics of building an online brand.

It’s excellent that you get the new updates each year as the digital world changes so fast.
Cons: It’s an 8 week course that’s impossible to complete within 8 weeks. In all honestly, I’ve never completed it start to finish in the last 5 years!
Ideal Customer: Someone with an established business but very little knowledge of digital business building.
Additional Comments: A lot of people talk about the b-school community and how it is a great place to make connections and grow your business. My experience was that while the Facebook group is very active, the people who win business via the group are those who help entrepreneurs. It’s the copy writers and the business coaches who have the most to gain from the b-school tribe. It’s a HUGE group these days and to really get traction in there you have to be good at networking on purpose.

While I did learn a lot about setting up my online presence I can’t help but think spending the money on 1-1 support from a business coach would have been a wiser investment.
