Training Program FAQ

What is it?
The Digital Content Marketing Training Program is a 12-week Professional Skills Development Training Program offered by Alberta-based company nine10 Incorporated. This program is aimed at small businesses who wish to train their in-house marketing teams to more effectively utilize branding, websites, SEO and social media to promote their business. You can learn more about the program on the landing page.
Where is the training delivered?
The program is delivered online, so businesses from all areas can participate and attend. The program utilizes Zoom for live group coaching calls, a web-based learning portal for instructional content, and a private Facebook group learning community that participants can network and learn from each other and the program  instructors in.
When is the training delivered?
The program is open for rolling enrollment, meaning that businesses can register anytime to start their 12-week course, maximizing flexibility for busy owners and staff members.
How long is the course?
Participants will receive access to the program, private peer group, and coaching calls for 12 weeks.  It is expected that they will work through their assignments and complete them in that time. Students will retain access to the online learning portal for 1 year after completion of the program as well.
Who is the training for?
This program is aimed at small businesses who wish to train their staff to more effectively utilize branding, websites, SEO and social media to promote their business. To qualify for the program, businesses must have an established brand, modern CMS website and be established on either Facebook or Instagram, or both.
Why is the training needed?
With so many platforms and options available to businesses, online marketing can be confusing and difficult to navigate. It can also cost a lot to hire an agency to execute day-to-day marketing tasks. But we believe that with a basic framework of knowledge, plus some tools and practice, any business can learn how to navigate the basics of search, social, and web marketing to be more independent, save money, and increase their competitive advantage. While they will still need professionals to help them with more advanced things, the simple daily things – and even moderately complex things – can be taught.
How much does the training cost?
The retail price of the 12-week training program is $6,500 per business (single seat). A second seat can be added for $1,500. Chamber members belonging to Chambers participating in this program can access exclusive Chamber pricing.

Funding FAQ

Is there grant funding available to cover the remaining costs for businesses?
Yes. This training program meets the criteria for funding under the Canada-Alberta Job Grant, which may cover between 66% to 100% of the remaining cost with a limit of up to $10,000 per employee per year. Please note, however, that we cannot guarantee that any particular business will qualify or receive funding under this grant. If discussing or promoting the available funding, you must use non-committal language, such as “Your business may qualify for additional funding.”
Is there grant funding available to cover some of the costs for our Chamber staff?
Yes. Your Chamber employees may also qualify for the Canada-Alberta Job Grant, which may cover between 66% to 100% of your discounted training costs, making it very affordable for your Chamber employees to participate. Please note, however, that we cannot guarantee that your Chamber will qualify or receive funding under this grant.
Will nine10 assist businesses or my Chamber in applying for this funding?
Yes. We can direct businesses (or your Chamber) to the correct application forms and provide them with guidance to streamline the application process as much as possible.
How quickly can businesses get funding?
The timeline varies from business to business, but some of our program participants have received confirmation of funding as little as a week after applying.
