by Zac Hayes 02/13/2020

This free course with Keith Cronin provides informative, realistic and interesting information about different aspects of many aspects of a successful solar business plan; information that is very relevant and straightforward. He has a way of explaining why the small business who cares vs. big the corporate profits matter most approach is actually the key.

As a copywriter, writing for the renewable energy field, I always try to expand my knowledge of my clients and the problems they face in their business. This course really gave me insight in how marketing and operations affects the profitability of a solar business. And it showed me how an empty (naked) website could prevent your business to reach it's full potential.
