Jacques Hopkins

You might remember Jacques Hopkins from episode 223, where he broke down how he turned his hobby of playing piano into a solid $20k a month online business at Pianoin21days.com.

Things were going great; he had a bunch of happy customers, he’d quit his engineering job to focus on it full-time, and he was doing what he loves.

BUT….

Between customer support, email, social media, phone sales, and all the other day-to-day tasks, it was taking a full 40 hours a week to run.

Since then, Jacques set out to automate, optimize, and outsource different elements of the business. Those initiatives cut back his time commitment to maintain the biz to just 10 minutes a day — and still grew revenue to $30k a month.

Jacques isn’t one to sit still, he’s using his newfound time freedom to work on more strategic growth projects and his other project; TheOnlineCourseGuy.com.

He’s launched a podcast interviewing other people who have successfully launched online courses, and sells his own course giving customers a behind the scenes look at how he built and sold his courses on Pianoin21days.com.

Tune in to hear how Jacques “plugged holes” in his course, outsourced time-consuming repetitive tasks to a virtual assistant, and successfully increased his revenue while reducing the time spent on his business.

  1. This was a great episode and made me think of how I could turn my site into a learning and earning site. Excellent, thank you.

  2. Hey Nick,
    I’m afraid I have been trying to contact Jacques via email and I have clicked through to start his course but I’ve had no luck with the links his automation have sent me. Can you contact him and ask him why his system isn’t working.
    Sorry to do this via you but it doesn’t reflect well on either of you really.
    Thanks again
    Keith.
