About a week ago I let you know about Allen Wyatt’s Excel Macros for Beginners course. At the time, I invited you to visit Allen’s overview for the course, and I told you that you could register for this excellent course for 20% off the regular price.
Today, though, I’m writing to remind you that the early bird special (the 20% discount I just mentioned) is ending. In fact, it will officially end at 8:00 pm Pacific time pm on Thursday, March 10. You can still sign up for a limited time after that time (the registration period fully ends on March 17), but you won’t be able to receive the 20% discount that early bird registrants receive if they register by 8:00 pm on Thursday, Pacific time. (I’ll let you calculate what the actual ending time is for your own time zone.)
Since he started accepting registrations for the course, Allen has received a few questions, which he shared with me. I figured that I would share those questions (and Allen’s answers) with you, just in case some of the same questions crossed your mind.
Question: Do I have to learn how to create macros in order to use Excel?
Allen’s Answer: No, you don’t. In fact, you can go through life without ever knowing what a macro is. For some people, their use of Excel doesn’t really require the use of macros. For other people, however, they immediately become more productive (and more valuable to their teams and company) when they add “macro skills” to their Excel toolkit.
Question: Do you think I can learn how to create macros?
Allen’s Answer: Yes, I do. In fact, I haven’t run into a single Excel user who couldn’t learn how to create macros with just a little bit of effort. It isn’t magic, and it isn’t a “black art.” With the right instruction, you can be creating macros in no time! (And, I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention that I think the Excel Macros for Beginners course is “the right instruction.”)
Question: Is it hard to learn to create macros?
Allen’s Answer: That’s a tough one to answer. Everyone is different, and everyone comes to the table with different skills and aptitudes. As I said, I think that everyone can learn how to create and use macros, but it really all depends on your determination and drive. This is no different than acquiring any new skill; if you make the effort, put in the time, and do the work, you’ll reap the benefits available through the course.
Question: When and how will I receive each lesson in the course?
Allen’s Answer: Once you register for the course, all lessons and materials are immediately available. That way you can learn at your own speed, day or night, weekdays or weekends—it is up to you. Plus, registration entitles you to access all lesson materials for an entire year.
Question: What type of time commitment does the course require?
Allen’s Answer: If you take a look at the web page I’ve prepared, you’ll find that the video modules that make up the course are, in aggregate, about 11-1/2 hours long. Each module is anywhere from a few minutes to about 30 minutes in length, and I provide complete information (once registered) as to the length of each module. That way you can plan out what is best for your schedule as you discover how to create macros.
I appreciate Allen sharing both the questions and his answers to those questions. I’m betting that you are the type of person who can truly benefit by taking the Excel Macros for Beginners course.
There is no better time to act than now. Be sure to take a few minutes before Thursday evening to register for the course; I don’t want you to miss out on the 20% savings that awaits you.
Oh, and in the spirit of full disclosure, you need to know that I do make a small commission if you decide to join Allen’s course. I don’t just recommend anything and everything; Allen’s got the necessary professional “chops,” and his course has the quality and value that make me happy to recommend it without hesitation.
