Challenges Addressed by Training Program

Most who purchased the $997 (US) self-paced training program invested in the course materials to improve three specific skills sets --  to learn how to:

  • Increase their monthly recurring revenue

  • Get more clients on annual service contracts

  • Grow their business and profitability

Business Model Pivot

In 2013, the publisher of the Computer Consulting Kit Home Study Course began pivoting its core business model from training to implementation.


Because of dramatic market shifts in B2B purchasing cycles, where search, social, mobile, and cloud make many traditional interruption-centric marketing channels anywhere from much less effective to obsolete, the company rebranded as SP Home Run Inc. and now provides outsourced Inbound marketing services for B2B technology companies.
