Description

Maker's Mark is a cohort-based, intensive online course on audience building. It lasts three weeks and costs $750.

The course is for people interested in building an online audience (using mainly Twitter) and a content distribution system on a specific platform (such as YouTube, a podcast, or a newsletter). The goal is to build a project in public and not post into the void, but rather have an audience of engaged people that can give feedback and insights to make the project successful.

During the three weeks of the program, you will need a time commitment of 5-7 hours per week. If you want to build your projects while you learn, putting into practice all the knowledge you receive, you will need to add about 5 more hours to that time commitment.

When you join the course, you will be assigned to an accountability group. These small groups of 5-6 people are designed to get and give feedback and to keep you accountable. It's a perfect networking opportunity, and also an opportunity to make friends and meet like-minded individuals.

Classes are every Monday and Wednesday. These workshops' purpose is to cover all topics of the curriculum. They will be live Zoom events. You don't need to attend every class in real-time (although they strongly recommend you to) because every workshop is recorded and added to the community for you to replay whenever you want.

Additionally, every Friday there will be Q&A sessions and interviews with experts. Your membership gives you lifelong access to Maker's Mark vault. This huge content library of async videos will help you perform any audience-building tasks with tutorials, frameworks, and processes.
