As a Certified Online Business Manager® you can expect to...

What is an Online Business Manager?

Simply put an Online Business Manager (OBM) is a virtual based support professional who supports business owners by taking a senior role managing its day-to-day activities. An OBM makes sure the right things are done in the right way, by the right people at the right time. This senior position allows the business owner to step back from the operational side of things, therefore removing a common barrier/bottleneck; one that allows them to concentrate on the growth and future direction of their business.

Why become a Certified Online Business Manager®?

The International Association of Online Business Managers, established in 2009 is globally recognised for producing world class OBMs. Their certification programme, designed with support from industry leaders in the area of adult learning is comprehensive and complete. The learning modules, combined with group facilitation, 1:1 coaching, a huge library resources, how to videos, ongoing learning and a steady stream of job opportunities exclusive only to those in the supportive and collaborative Certified OBM community, can put you years ahead of the self-starter OBM, and there are always experts on hand to offer guidance long after certification.

What Set Amanda apart was her uncanny ability to understand...

[Amanda’s] knowledge is deep, and approachability, unmatched. Every module was laid out with explicit clarity, and no question, regardless of how basic it seemed, was ever dismissed. What set Amanda apart was her uncanny ability to understand not just my business, but me as an individual. She pinpointed what I needed and what was lacking, guiding me through every step of the process.

...wonderful, knowledgeable, caring, understanding...

What can I say about Amanda? Many things...She's been the most wonderful, knowledgeable, caring, understanding and general cheerleader throughout this process. She is someone who really supports and wants everyone to succeed. Throughout the modules, she ensured I understood everything and was always at the end of a call if needed.

She is a true asset to the association, and I'm the lucky one to have had her as my trainer!

The cost of the programme is very purposely priced - in fact it's priced in such a way that should charge only the minimum recommended rate of £56 per hour - the cost of the programme could be covered by getting just one retainer client.

Module 2 - The OBM Role & Leadership Competencies

When a Certified OBM® is integrated into a senior role in the business of the 6 and 7 figure entrepreneur, the #1 thing being looked for in that Certified OBM® is confident and competent leadership. The business owner needs someone to take charge, own the trusted space provided to them and take the 365 view of the business, quickly turning goals into plans and those plans into results. For that to be affective, a Certified OBM® needs to lead their team ensure the intended picture becomes a reality

Module 3 - Planning

Planning is another essential part of the role of the Certified OBM® whether that be finances, launches, team, resources. Planning answers two crucial questions, 'where are we going?' and 'how are we going to get there?' A Certified OBM® authentically owns their senior role by directing the planning pathways.
