With the changes that we’re making to our website it’s no surprise you can enrol into the Excel or MYOB online courses for 50% off (half price). We are upgrading our website using a fantastic community blog system call WordPress and if you receive this information via email, then you probably already know it. As a result we are able to combine many of our diverse services under one location and that includes the ability for you to purchase our online courses at discounted prices using discount vouchers.
Discount vouchers are simply a string of numbers that you enter into our shopping system to reveal a discount we are making this offer available to you until the end of this month. The discount voucher code that is available to you between today and 30th May is 888, and it entitles you to half price off our MYOB or Microsoft Excel courses. If you want to take advantage of the discount, go to our online training enrolment page and purchase an online course. Where you see the screen below, enter your code (888) and click update to see the new discounted price.
You might also be aware that we started a new opportunity for anyone to make promoting our online courses via a method called Affiliate Marketing. This enables you to promote a special code via facebook, email, twitter or anywhere that you can tell people about us, and if your friend enrols into a course after following your special link, you get $30! This system is managed by a completely independent company called clixgalore and if you’d like to learn more, visit our affiliate program page for MYOBcourse.com.au.
Stay tuned in the forthcoming weeks for information about ways that you can work from home using your computer skills as a remote contractor.
It’s ready! The workbook for the MYOB 502 (day to day transactions) training course is now ready. This workbook now has a better flow from navigating around the MYOB screen, creating inventory items, purchasing products from suppliers, setting inventory item properties, paying bills, creating quotes, orders and invoices to receiving payments and making bank deposits.
This workbook has larger screen shots, better practice tasks and references to our online training videos. You can even use the workbook by itself to learn how to use MYOB accounting software.
Proof of training and evidence of completion of a course are two significant ways to prove that a person has the skills to perform selected tasks when they are in the workplace. How is this achieved with online training?
A certificate in the hand of a potential employee might seem like the answer to everyone’s hopes. Companies are looking for staff with the skills and prospective employees want to be employed. So, what does a certificate mean? The most structured form of vocational training is a Certificate or Diploma course, these courses are operated by RTO’s (Registered Training Organisations) who adhere to strict guidelines in assessing students skills level, running the courses and assessing the students skills at the end of the course. Under these strict guidelines you can be confident that if someone has a certificate that they have reached a certain level of competency.
EzyLearn is a computer training content provider, in other words, we create training videos, workbooks and exercise files that are used by private individuals, companies and training companies (including RTO’s). Some of these companies have qualified assessors who are able to provide a Nationally recognised Certificate, regardless of the training materials used.
At our www.myobcourse.com.au website we provide a Certificate of Completion. Our assessment of a students skills are based on their ability to take an MYOB data file, make changes to it like enter inventory items, create customer cards, create invoices, apply payments to those invoices and perform a bank reconciliation. If they can send the data file to us, there is good evidence that they have the skills required for most every bookkeeping tasks.
I think about the times when I have been to countries like Egypt and Vietnam where there seem to be so many people willing to help travellers who’ve just arrived in the new town. I quickly got to learn that they are doing it for the money. This is why tourism is so important in these countries… It’s how locals can get paid by tourists who need help.
I’ve often pondered how this method of income works in developed countries like Australia. I mean you or I can’t go to a local hotel and say, “If I bring you a customer, will you give me 50 bucks?” Why? It would probably get quite messy, it would encourage a cash economy (and we don’t want that, do we?) and it might even cause some arguments. But it’s making sense to me just how easy it is with affiliate marketing.
EzyLearn has just created an affiliate program for www.myobcourse.com.au to help increase traffic to our site. I’ve gone through the steps of implementing code on the website, checking that it works with a test sale and everything is tracked beautifully!
The great thing about affiliate marketing is that you simply have to tell people about whatever product you like and believe in, this is particularly good if you’ve used the product/service and love it. Everything else is done for you, if no sale is made, you don’t get paid, but if it is, you’ll earn money. Even better than that, you don’t even need a webpage to do it! You can simply setup a Twitter page and paste your unique affiliate link as a tweet!
So, the key thing to know about affiliate marketing is that you end up with a unique URL (basically a website address) and if people click on it, they will be taken to our website and clixgalore make a note that this visitor in their system. If a sale is made it is tracked through the PayPal shopping system and ultimately the commission is credited to you.

With the financial crisis firmly upon us the employment landscape has changed significantly. The sad reality that we can plainly see is that large companies are reducing staff numbers at all levels including management significantly due to lack of demand for their products. This is leaving both unskilled as well as management staff without income and in a situation where they need to find employment elsewhere or start their own business. It is important at all levels to retrain and upskill to make themselves competitive.Those ex-managers left looking for work may decide it is long overdue for them to start their own business, work their own hours and potentially make lots more money. They’ll need MYOB to run their own business. Even if they employ someone to run their accounts, it is important that they understand parts of the system to be able to use the valueable accounting data available to them.
Employees who need to find another job, mainly if the new job is in an office or office admin environment, will need to know MYOB accounting software as well as other office applications like Microsoft Excel, Word and Outlook. Why do employees need to know about these software programs these days? Having skills using computer software like Microsoft Word, Excel and Outlook and accounting software like MYOB are critical for employees in todays employment market because it sets them apart from their competitors, other job applicants.
Whereas many companies used to train staff up, it is expected these days to have the skills before you even start working with the company. Sometimes when job applicants apply for jobs they are asked about their Excel and MYOB skills only to find that after they receive the job that they didn’t need the software or only started to need it after 3-6 months of work. If they completed a course just to have the skills, it is often the case where they need to do another course as a refresher. This is where EzyLearn is different.
EzyLearn is flexible training at your own pace and in your own place. MYOBcourse.com is an online training site that uses EzyLearn content to provide flexible MYOB courses to those who want to know how to set up an MYOB accounting file from scratch or those who need to use it on a day to day basis. It’s completed online and at your own pace, but best of all you receive a certificate after completing the assessment task and have 12 months access to the training material if you forget things or need to focus on new skills during the year.
Why would you travel to a training centre, spend a day of your time and cram the information into your brain, when you can watch the EzyLearn MYOB training course videos over and over as many times as you want for a fraction of the price! The MYOB online training courses are available at www.myobcourse.com at more than 50% off their normal prices, PLUS, if you purchase the MYOB accounting software from us (Accounting Plus version), we’ll give you the training for free!Best of all, you can watch 20 videos for free, just to see if you like our training style. So, what are you waiting for? Register for free and watch videos for free and if you like what you see, enrol for over 50% discount.
Why did we single out the letter B? Well, because it is a combination of Business and book (as in Book keeper). The real reason is we wanted to have a catchy heading to make you read this BLOG post. But if you are serious about becoming a bookkeeper then you may want to take a look at the Wikipedia definition of a bookkeeper (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bookkeeper)…. Sounds pretty boring doesn’t it?? Still, a necessary evil in our modern capitalist world, and a great way to earn a living as an independent contractor. Yay!!
The real reason for this blog is to let you know that we have started a social networking site for people who are learning, know how to use or want to know how to use MYOB Accounting software (the best selling accounting software in Australia).
To join the network, get to meet other bookkeepers and improve your knowledge please feel free to join and build a ‘sphere of influence’ that will help you provide a better service to your customers and build a level of confidence to perform at your peak (great marketing words aren’t they). Apart from the humour it is important for upcoming MYOB users to get to know other users, build a community and improve their skills in an ever changing taxation environment.
