The Online Business StartUp Training Course follows a proven methodology for discovering and defining products and services. The course contributors are experienced business people, actively running businesses still, and our course includes interviews with these people along with other entrepreneurs in retail, professional services, technology and many other sectors.
These professionals have proven track records in running successful businesses and reveal what they have learned along the way with tips for success in your own business.
Learn how to identify risks and ways of managing them (including the insurances you need in place) as well as the kinds of legal and privacy contracts and agreements required for the work you do.
A major goal of the online business startup course is to define your products and services, identify your ideal client and then create website content, landing pages and a Call-to-action that gives customers a reason to contact you.

4. The ENTIRE SUITE of Xero Accounting Software Online Training Courses
Thousands of Australians have learned how to use Xero with our suite of Xero online training courses. Xero has become one of the most popular cloud accounting programs in Australia, let alone the rest of the world. One of the great things about Xero is that it can be accessed by logging into an online portal.
This makes it much more convenient than downloading software, continually updating, and worrying about backups. The fact that it runs online, or in the cloud, also means your accountant and staff members can access and use it at any time as well.
As your business grows you can hire the best person for the job and NOT just the person who lives the closest to your office.
With The StartUp Academy Cloud Package you receive not one or two, but access to SIX Industry Recognised Xero online training courses from National Bookkeeping.
The Xero Online Course takes you through several startup business scenarios for professional and sales services and will help you manage every aspect of your business finances and processes.

“After careful consideration, I opted for the ASBC Complete Business Cloud Package. I wanted to understand social media and how to use it in my business and also be able to do the financials for my business.
“I can say it’s given me the confidence to go forth in my business with extra gusto and knowledge that I wouldn’t have had otherwise. In some ways the course reinforced approaches that I had thought of already and it also taught me new ways of looking at selling my services. I learned how to apply the practical skills for running a business and keeping momentum and I came out of it all with a detailed business plan which I adjust as I go on and which I still refer back to more often than I thought I would.
“My chats with various mentors, Steve Slisar and Mark Darling in particular, and the videos I watched which had a lot of other business people sharing their insights were easy to follow, and quite interesting and have been relevant to lot of situations that I’ve come across running my own business. I can honestly say I got a lot out of this course.”
— Annette Biggs, Virtual Assistant and Web Designer
“For what I think is a relatively small investment given the costs of starting my own business, the Business Start Up Course has taught me the skills that I lacked in the business world and which undermined my confidence. I’d come from a paid job and had been at the same place for 11 years and knew it was now or never when it came to starting work for myself. I feel inspired, educated and like I’ve met a bunch of fellow business people who I can contact down the track for feedback on my ideas or to ask advice from. It’s a great course and you learn a lot.”
— Trudy Senger, Bookkeeper
“The Complete Business Cloud Package offers strategy and execution. You can talk about strategy for weeks, but when it’s time to put it into action, how are you going to do it? This course sets you up for both.”
— Steve Slisar, coach and mentor with the Australian Small Business Centre
