Check out our frequently asked questions to see if OPU is right for you.
Is Online Profits University Right For You?
Here are answers to some frequently asked questions:
What if I don't even have a business idea yet?
You do not need an idea to join the Online Profits University. That’s because we’ll show you how to uncover your own unique skills, talents, gifts, expertise and passions and then find the ‘sweet spot’ where what you have to offer meets the wants and desires of a large group of people. Then, we’ll take you through the process we use at the Online Profits University to test ideas for profitability BEFORE we invest a ton of time or energy pursuing them. That means you’ll quickly discover how to turn your unique expertise into a recurring online revenue stream.
It can take months or even YEARS to try and figure this out on your own without help. We will help you get clear on WHO you’re going to serve through your online business, WHAT they need and are willing to pay for, and HOW to meet that need in a way that works for you. It doesn’t make sense to try and figure this out on your own, when we have a step-by-step program to help you get this figured out. Join the Online Profits University now to get started.
When does the Online Profits University start?
We’re opening the doors to Online Profits University again in September 2017. With your secret VIP pass you can join right now. When you join, you’ll take an assessment so we can map out a custom training plan that’s unique to you. We’ll identify key milestones for you to work towards so you can stay focused on the right steps at the right time, and get a sense of momentum and ongoing progress. You’ll proceed at your own pace. For some that will mean total immersion, for others it might be a couple of hours a week. The good news is that you get LIFETIME access when you join today (in the future new members will pay an annual fee) so you can take your time and progress at your own pace.
But I’m not sure what I have to offer that people would actually pay for!
All of us incredible life experiences, natural insights, professional knowledge or expertise in a particular field that could really change people's lives or businesses for the better. However, many people undervalue what comes most easily to them and fail to see how to turn that know-how into products and programs that create value for others and can be turned into consistent streams of online income. This is where the Online Profits University comes in. We have exercises and assignments that will tease out of you YOUR unique area of expertise that people will HAPPILY pay for. Stop undervaluing what you have to offer – somewhere in the world there is a market niche who badly needs what you already know and they are willing to pay for it! What you’ll learn in Online Profits University will help you find them.
I’m really time poor! What kind of time commitment is required?
Maybe you are already running business at capacity and you want to transition away from ‘trading your time for money’. Or, you might just be getting your business off the ground, while literally still working a ‘day job’. Perhaps you have other commitments, such as family, that mean time is short.Online Profits University has been designed to fit in with your schedule. First, when you join, you’ll take an assessment so we can see EXACTLY what you need to take you from where you are now to a thriving and profitable online information empire. Next, you’ll get connected to the relevant training to help you progress to the next stage of business, implementing and getting results as you go. You’ll never be asked to sit through long trainings that aren’t immediately applicable to you.The trainings are pre-recorded and delivered online, so you can access them from wherever you are in the world and they can fit into your schedule, no matter how busy you are. The trainings are delivered in multiple formats (video, audio, transcripts) so you can access them in the medium that works best for you.This isn’t a bootcamp where you are required to show up at set times, it’s an online program that you access in your own time and at your convenience. You proceed at your own pace, and you can take a break when and if you need to.Finally, being a member of the Online Profits University will save you time, as you’ll get every shortcut for building your profitable online business and won’t be wasting time on the wrong things or taking lengthy detours. You’ll get checklists, ‘cut and paste’ templates and every other short cut we can give you. In short, if time is of the essence, that’s exactly why you should join the Online Profits University today.
When can I expect to make money?
I can’t promise you specific results from your online business in a specific timeframe. What I can tell you is that making money online basically boils down to 2 things. First, the size of your list and second, the $ value of each subscriber on your list.
When you focus on these two numbers, making money online becomes inevitable. You might get there in weeks, or it might take months. The important thing to remember is that you are creating a business asset that will generate revenue and profits for years to come, so in the big picture, is a few weeks here or there going to make that much difference?
Can I Go through the course on my own schedule? What if I fall behind?
We’re opening registration again to Online Profits University in September 2017. When take advantage of your secret VIP pass and join today, you’ll take an assessment so we can map out a custom training plan that’s unique to you. We’ll identify key milestones for you to work towards so you can stay focused on the right steps at the right time, and get a sense of momentum and ongoing progress. You’ll proceed at your own pace. For some that will mean total immersion, for others it might be a couple of hours a week.
The good news is that you get LIFETIME access when you join today so you can take your time and progress at your own pace. You can take a break from the material if you’re out of town, on vacation, or just busy with other things for a few days. Interruptions happen, and the Online Profits University will ALWAYS be here for you when you're ready.
As for ‘falling behind’, that concern comes from what we call ‘Comparisonitis’ and we want to discourage this inside the University. The only comparison that matters is how much further forward you are compared to yesterday. It’s YOUR journey that matters and comparing yourself to others is only worthwhile if you let someone else’s progress inspire you. We’ve identified several milestones for your online profits journey, and we will celebrate every single one of them with you. What matters is that you achieve each of them, not how long it takes you to achieve them.
I’m in a service business and I do my best work 1:1. I can’t see how to turn this into an online product.
I love working with clients 1:1 too, but, if that’s the ONLY way you can serve clients and get paid, then it’s an extremely limiting business model. (And honestly, that’s not really a business, it’s a job). The answer is to ‘Productize’ your service offerings and package your expertise into products and program that can be sold ‘off the shelf’ and aren’t dependent upon your time to deliver. You need to know that it IS possible for you to add value to your clients and customers without always being with them in person. In the Online Profits University, we have a whole category called ‘Breaking Free From Trading Time for Money’. We’ll show you how to turn your expertise in to products that can’t provide steams of passive income. That means instead of ‘do the work, get paid’, you ‘do the work and get paid, paid, paid, paid, paid, paid, paid….’
You might still choose to work with a select group of clients 1:1, and imagine how great it will feel doing this knowing that you have other passive revenue streams in place too.
Please know that in 15 years of doing this I have NEVER come across a service business that couldn’t be ‘productized’ in some way. We even have special assignments inside to help you to this. Stay open to the idea that it’s possible for you, even if you’re not sure exactly how yet, because in the Online Profits University we’ll help you to figure this out.
Is this course right if I want to create a physical product? Or sell my services? I have a bricks and mortar business, will this program work for me?
The Online Profits University is designed to help you succeed in sharing your passion and expertise with the world. We will show you how to take your expertise and package it up to sell it online, without the frustrations, expenses, and hassles of physical distribution. We can teach you how to turn your knowledge into products that your customers will be delighted to pay for. We will also show you how to add higher value products and programs, even if you don't consider yourself a teacher or consultant. If you are already selling services then you will probably find that demand for your services will increase as a result of this program (and so can your price points!) If you want a business model that will give you true freedom, flexibility and scalability, then you should look no further than an online information business. That’s why this is the business model we focus on in the Online Profits University
If I’m stuck on something, what do I do?
After 15 years of not only doing this, but teaching online business building to thousands of people, we know where the pitfalls are. We know where you’re likely to get stuck or take a detour. We’ve designed your path through the Online Profits University to PREVENT you getting stuck. However, we also know that there will be times when you have a specific question or a decision to make and you want more input.
That's why, when you join Online Profits University, not only do you get access to cutting edge training and direction to help you grow your online business, you’ll also get access to the private facebook community so you’ll have 24/7 access to a group of people who can give you first hand advice when you get stuck. You’ll also get access to a live Q&A call each month with Bernadette and other guest experts, so you’ll ALWAYS have someone to turn to, if and when you get stuck. This is what makes the difference between being able get momentum and continually take action versus getting paralysed because you’re not sure on your next step.
What does lifetime mean? - can this be taken offline at a future date?
The intention is that the program will be continually developed as the market develops over a number of years. If Bernadette ever decides to stop running the program, you will continue to have access to the content for as long as you want it.
What problems may prevent me from creating an online product? What have other clients encountered that has caused them not to create the online business they wanted?
The only way you won’t succeed with this program is if you don’t follow the instructions and take action. The only thing that will get in the way of your success is your own belief in yourself.
Who is the Online Profits University for?
The Online Profits University is for anyone who is currently ‘trading time for money’ either as an employee, or in your own business, and want to create an online business so they can create passive income streams. We attract corporate consultants who want to create online programs so they can share their expertise with clients without having to ‘be there’ in person. We attract stay-at-home mums who want to add an additional income stream of just a few hundred a month. The most important thing is your desire to own an online business that is a true income and profit generating asset (and not another job!)
What makes the Online Profits University different from other online business building programs?
First, you get a success path that is matched to your current starting point and stage of business, so you’re going to get strategies and training that are most relevant to your needs right now. Second, this is not just about information, it’s about IMPLEMENTATION, so we’ll get you focused on the key milestones to progress to the next stage of success in your online business. Finally, many of the so-called online business building programs on the market today have been created by ‘experts’ who have only had an online business for a year or two. The Online Profits University has been created from my 15 years experience taking my own business from a home based business selling just one e-book to a multi-million dollar enterprise serving tens of thousands of clients in over 60 countries. It has been designed to not just get you started in your online business, but also provide you with advanced business building strategies as you grow. It gives you everything you need to start, build and grow a profitable online business.
How do I know if anyone will actually buy my product?
Great question! Our mantra in the Online Profits University is to find out what people want, and THEN give it to them. We’ll show you how to determine whether there’s a market for what you want to offer; we have specific exercises, research and assignments to help you do that. Then we’ll help you to validate your idea BEFORE you invest days or weeks of your time creating a product or program. We’ll even show you how to get paid to CREATE your products!
I need to make money FAST. Will this help?
No, and please don’t join the Online Profits University. This is about building an online business as a long lasting business asset, not a get rich quick scheme. This is not for people who need quick money, because when you’re in dire financial straits, you end up making poor decisions based on your short-term needs.
If you’re in deep financial doo-doo, I recommend you check out my friend Ann Wilson who can show you how to create a firm financial foundation first, then come and build your online business when you’re on a more solid foundation.
How many hours per week will I need to put in?
The Online Profits University is entirely self-paced, so you can put in as many or as few hours as you like. Obviously, the more you put in, the faster you will progress through the training and the faster you will see results in your online business.
I’m not good with technology.
Let me start by confessing that I am no ‘techno-geek’ and nor do I want to be. The truth is you can use e-commerce and have a successful online business without spending all of your time writing code. (Heck, I can barely work my TV!) If you can ‘cut and paste’ in a word document you have ALL the technical skills you need to get started in the Online Profits University.
I’m too busy ‘making a living’ to have time to devote to building an online business
Online Profits University is designed for people who ‘don’t have enough time’. Maybe you are already running a coaching or consulting business at capacity and yet you want to transition away from ‘trading your time for money’. Or, you might just be getting your business off the ground, while literally still working a ‘day job’.
I know how you feel. I faced exactly the same challenges as I made the transition from full-time consultant to where I am today. Balancing earning a very necessary income alongside making the time to develop products and set up online marketing systems IS a challenge. But it’s a whole lot easier when you have the RIGHT PLAN to follow, and if you’re time pressed its even MORE IMPORTANT to align yourself with the right mentor to make sure you take every available short-cut and avoid time-wasting. The bottom line is I’ve made the transition from being a time pressed consultant where 100% of my income was based on me ‘selling my time’ to a place where over 95% of my income is from products and programs. That means I’ve gone from getting paid for my time to getting paid for my knowledge and that’s why even though I now work part time, I can earn more in a month than I used to in a whole YEAR.
The fact is that building your online business is about figuring out how to get things done in spite of how busy you are. You can wait hoping that someday you’ll ‘have the time’ or you can get started in spite of your lack of time. Just a couple of hours a week, with consistency could mean your life is transformed a year from now. So join us NOW.

My niche is spiritual and I’m not sure how to turn my expertise into something that will sell online
It doesn’t matter whether you are selling health and fitness, spirituality, career advancement, relationship advice or business building, the principles of creating and growing a profitable online business are the same. What we teach inside the Online Profits University has helped healers, therapists, coaches and consultants to get more visible and turn their expertise into online profit streams. It will help you too, so make sure to join us today.
How much 1:1 help will I get?
Online Profits University has been designed to give you a custom experience inside of a group program. There is no 1:1 coaching inside the university at this time. One of the reasons we can bring such comprehensive training to you at this incredible price is because the training is delivered this way. You’ll get access to Bernadette and other experts in live Question and Answer sessions each month. These are all recorded, so even if you can’t attend live, you can submit your question in advance and listen to the recordings afterwards.
Now isn’t a good time for me. When will the Online Profits University open again?
If now “isn’t a good time,” understand one thing: it’s NEVER going to feel like the right time. It’s never the right time to get married. Never the right time to have kids. Or move across the country. Or start an online business. We can all dream about that magical day when the stars align, but that day isn’t coming. The bottom line is, if you want to start an online business, the best time to get started is today.
At a certain point you have to stop waiting and make things happen for yourself. We have big plans for the Online Profits University, so you will certainly have the opportunity to join at a later date. The reason to join now is to lock in lifetime access at the lowest price of $1997. When we officially open registrations again in September 2017, this offer will no longer be available.That means even if you can’t start right away, it makes sense to join now and lock in the lifetime access at this incredible low price.
What other financial commitment will I need to commit to in terms of tools or programs to create my online business?
The beauty of an online business is the low start up and operating costs. Compared to bricks and mortar businesses which require premises, staff, inventory and other costs, the investment in an online business is tiny. You should allow for about $50 - $150 recurring monthly fees for software and payment processing costs. As your business grows you might want to invest in other things like team or paid advertising. These can all be added in as you grow. I grew my online business from zero to over a million dollars by reinvesting profits back into my business. I never needed to use loans or overdrafts to invest to get to the next stage.
I would like further details on each module so I can see exactly what I will be getting.
It’s not simple to provide this. That’s because every person who joins the Online Profits University will have a custom training plan created for them based on your starting point and what you already have in place. We have deliberately chosen NOT to list every single piece of training, because frankly, if you saw it all laid out, you would start to feel overwhelmed. As the saying goes, you don’t need to see the whole staircase, just take the first step. Our training keeps you focused on the most important step for YOU at each point of the journey, celebrating each milestone as you go.
We can tell you that he main categories include: Breaking Free of Trading Time for Money, Personal Productivity and Time Management, Get More Traffic, Grow Your List, Convert Like Crazy, Optimize Your Results, Hire the Right Team and Profit Power. These categories have been selected by Bernadette based on her own experience over the past 15 years building and sustaining a profitable online business, plus her experience helping others to do the same. Inside each of these categories is in depth training which you will get access to at the right stage of the journey for you. You will only get training which is relevant to YOU, so if you’re already a productivity ninja, you won’t be taking a deep dive into that content, but if time is something that is preventing you from moving forward then we’re going to point you into that training.
I’ve done other programs in the past and not got the results I wanted. How will this be different?
That’s a great question. The first thing we need to ask is why you haven’t got the results you wanted in the past. Did you take action? As Maya Angelou says, nothing works unless you do! If you took action and still didn’t get results, maybe it was that the strategies weren’t relevant to your market or stage of business? One of the reasons I created the Online Profits University is because there are so many programs out there that give you just one piece of the puzzle, but nothing else that connects ALL the dots and gives you EVERYTHING you need to create a profitable online business. The Online Profits University will give you everything you need.
Or maybe you DID get results, but they didn’t match your expectations. I can tell you right now that if you’re starting from scratch and want to grow a million dollar revenue business it’s probably going to take 4 years and consistent effort to get there. (That’s how long it took me and the clients I’ve helped to do the same. It can and has been done faster, but that’s the time frame I would expect, and why this has been set up as a University. After all, a university education typically takes 3-4 years)
Growing a profitable online business comes down to 2 main things. First, growing a list of people who have raised their hands and expressed an interest in what you’re offering. Second, having the right systems and mechanisms in place to convert that interest into paying business AND continually increase the value per subscriber as you do. When you focus on these two numbers it’s impossible to not succeed. The Online Profits University gives you everything you need to continually improve both of those numbers, and that’s how you’ll get to an extra income stream of $2000 a month, if that’s what you want, or all the way up to a million dollar revenue business. The only way you won’t get results with this program is by not taking the leap and getting started. So join today while you can still lock in lifetime access.
You need to bring the attitude that you will “make the system work for you no matter what”. It’s likely that you will have to do some testing yourself to get the best results. If you love testing and are willing to trust the system, then the Online Profits University is perfect for you.
