Getting More from Hubspot Academy

I'm Williams from Nigeria. My goal is to become a digital market and permit me to say Hubspot Academy has been such an invaluable resource towards achieving that. I find it fascinating how they have curated the lessons (content on content) to reflect a top-tier case of "walking the talk". However, one thing that I haven't come to resolve is what appears to be paying less attention to marketers who do not necessarily have a business of their own and probably prefer to be freelancers. It is getting hard to connect with some of the lessons because I am just starting this journey of digital marketing to get the skill; I don't have a particular business idea formed in my head already and I acknowledge the importance of practicing with the resources provided.
I will love to get suggestions on tools or platforms for newbies who doesn't own a business like myself to practice what they are learning from the lessons and resources. While it may be possible that it is I who haven't been able to navigate to find this on Hubspot Academy but if it doesn't exist, how do I find one? Better still, can we get one on Hubspot Academy?

@Williams,

If I were you, I would fire up a free website with WordPress or CMS of choice and attach the free HubSpot tools to it.

This will give you a small place to play at zero to low cost. 

I personally signed up for the HubSpot CMS and starter packages for sales, marketing, and service, to give me a personal HubSpot Playground.

 

At Impulse Creative, we use the Enterprise level of all the HubSpot tools but, I wanted a place where I could see what was available for folks much like yourself.

So, that's what I use the George B. Thomas website for (HubSpot Playground).

 

Hope that helps point you in a couple of viable directions.

 

If you have questions, I'm all ears.

George B. Thomas

Hi @Williams ,

 

Thanks for reaching out. You are correct in that most of our Academy lessons would be geared towards those already working on their business plan as opposed to developing a business plan. It might be best to review our Classroom Training - more on this here

 

Best,

Thanks for the response but I can't afford the cost of those services right now.

@Williams,

We totally get that budget can be an issue to growth. That's why we created Sprocket Talk where people can learn for free at their own pace.

One of the things I love doing is creating custom tutorials when users ask. Hope that helps you in the future!

 

George
