The 7-Figure Business Coach You'll Learn From

Ben Marvazi

Ben Marvazi LinkedIn
Ben Marvazi has been a successful entrepreneur for over 20 years. He founded Promoshin in 2011 which he grew into a 7-figure highly sought-after animation studio. Since starting, he has worked with clients like Uber, Kaiser, NASA, Intuit, Pfizer, Verizon, Dunkin Donuts, Anheuser-Busch, Capital One, Comedy Central, FOX, Cisco, and many more!

With proven systems he has learned through trial and error over the years, Ben now helps animators find their own success. You can find no better source of knowledge to accelerate your animation business than someone who has a background in marketing and entrepreneurship as well as experience owning a 7-figure animation studio since 2011.

Through Business of Animation, Ben offers you the necessary training and tools you need to make 6 to 7 figures as a freelance animator or studio owner.

You’re An Unapologetically Determined, Resilient, And Ambitious Animator.

And you got into animation because you’ve felt a calling. The calling to make great animated videos while making a great living doing it.

You have a unique and divine gift; a power that not many people have. And you want to learn how to turn that gift into a lucrative freelance animation business or studio that helps you grow personally and professionally.

Ebube O.

I haven't found anyone online who has offered to breakdown animation as a business. You most times see tutorials and techniques in form of course or YouTube tutorial but nothing that teaches the business of it, and I believe you guys see the problem and dedicated to teaching this. I believe you are the right people to put my trust in.

Franco G.

As the owner of the studio I feel we are always getting clients from referrals, but we need to work and improve our marketing and selling strategies.

Rasheeda C.

I am tired of being stuck where I am in life. I have this desire to be able to provide a service for small business and helping the grow. The goal is to not only leave a legacy but be apart of change. Through my creative mindset and entrepreneur appetite a change is going to come. It has to, this burning in me will not let it go.

Ad M.

I watched the Masterclass and the strategies, tools and techniques sound like knowledge that I need to attain in order for my business to be as successful as I want it to be.

Noel Q.

What attracted me to wanting to grow my animation business was the prospect that it could be much more. Having reliable clients that offer fun, challenging and engaging projects on a constant basis is a freelancers dream. Its all about what this opportunity could do for me now and what benefits it could have in the future.

David I.

I saw what animators that went through the same process, how their lives changed so I decided to level up with the acceleration program. I did not want to be left out from such a great opportunity.

6 Major Problems Animators Deal With 

Get the tools you need to combat these common problems (and many more).

COMPETITION

Competition in the animation industry is fiercer now than ever before since anyone can easily learn animation online.

OUTSOURCING

World's biggest animation studios outsource most of their work to low-wage countries so it's nearly impossible to get those jobs.

DO-IT-YOURSELF TOOLS

Animation tools like Vyond and Powtoon have made it super easy for non-animators to make animated videos.

CLIENT BUDGETS

Even though the demand for animated videos is growing, it seems client budgets are getting smaller and smaller.

BIG ANIMATION STUDIOS 

If you're lucky enough to a job at a big animation studio, it's rarely the dream job you may think it is compared to freelancing.

ONE-AND-DONE CLIENTS

Most clients will only make one video with you and move on, causing you to constantly have to find new clients!

Why Is There An Approval Process To Get In?

The Animation Accelerator program is geared towards a select group of animators who exhibit high potential.

We only take students who have a good chance of succeeding. Ambitious, action-takers who want to succeed.

We need to make sure every student receives the support they deserve, so we can only accept roughly 3% of applicants.

Frequently Asked Questions

ABOUT BUSINESS OF ANIMATION

What does Business of Animation look for in potential applicants?

There are a lot of things we look for to make sure we bring on applicants who have the highest chances of succeeding as freelance animators or studio owners - which is why we only accept roughly 3% of our applicants.

We look for ambitious animators, who want to grow, are willing to learn, and want to be in control of their own destiny rather than leaving it in the hands of their employers. You must be serious about your animation business and the work you’ll need to put in to get where most animators never dream of getting.

What makes the Business of Animation different from other resources?

Business of Animation is the only online freelancing program that combines video lessons, client management tools, worksheets, a thriving community, monthly calls, and more. We cover much more than just reaching out to clients via email. We explore techniques that will also bring your clients to you. It's the perfect way to kickstart or grow your freelance career or studio.

THE ENROLLMENT PROCESS

How do I apply to be accepted?

You can start your application by filling in this form. If we feel you might be a good fit we’ll reach out to you for an in-depth interview. If we don’t feel you’re a good fit, we will also let you know. You can also reach out to us and check on the status of your application at any time.

Can I reapply if my application is denied?

If your application is denied, you may apply at a future date if you feel things have changed that would now make you a better candidate to reapply. We kindly ask that you wait at least 12 months before trying again.

Why do I need to apply?

We have a very limited number of spots for each group of students we bring on and the last thing we want to do is accept you into the program if you’re not yet ready for it. This is why we have a stringent qualification process that only approves 3% of applicants who apply. We want to bring on animators who will have the highest chances of success.

PAYMENTS, PRICING, AND TERMS

How much does it cost?

Our Animation Business Accelerator is an investment, not a cost. An investment that can change the entire trajectory of your life and financial future.

The question should instead be - what does it cost if you DON’T go through this program? With that said, believe it or not - our program costs less than what you would charge to make one or two videos for a client. That’s right! Less than the cost of making one or two videos.

Do you offer payment plans?

Yes we do. You can either choose to pay upfront or split your payment into two or three monthly payments. The details around the payment options available to you will be discussed on your call with our Admissions Officer.

Do you offer any scholarships?

Yes, we do offer a limited number of scholarships each year. We can discuss how it works if your application is approved and you make it to the interview stage with our Admissions Officer.

ABOUT ANIMATION BUSINESS ACCELERATOR

Who is the Animation Business Accelerator program for?

The program is designed for ambitious animators who want to start and/or grow a successful freelance animation business or studio. 

Are you someone who: 

  • Knows how to animate good enough (don’t need to be a pro)
  • Is tired of having an inconsistent stream of clients/income
  • Doesn’t have the necessary business skills 
  • Wants to level up your career and life  
  • Wants to kickstart your freelance animation business
  • Wants to build a studio and bring in other animators 
  • Doesn’t want to spend years figuring it yourself

If you answered yes to any of these then this is the right program for you!

Who is this not for?

The Animator Accelerator program is not for animators who are content with where they are in their lives and don’t want to leave their comfort zone. It’s not for you if you enjoy working for someone else as an on-staff employee. If you don’t want to redefine your lifestyle and be in control of your destiny, then Animation Accelerator wouldn’t be a good fit.

If you think you can figure everything out all on your own and don’t need help from proven experts and other successful animators who have already found success, we don’t recommend this program.

How is this accelerator program different from an online course?

An online course is usually more of a do-it-on-your-own type of thing where, unfortunately, most people walk away and never end up implementing anything they learn.

In the business accelerator program, you will be implementing things as you’re learning and have a business coach to be accountable to along the way. As you go through the modules, you will also have all the help you’ll need to implement your learnings so you can see the results as you go through the program.

At the end of 2 to 3 months, you can have a fully operational freelance business or studio. Even a business degree takes 2-4 years and doesn’t give you anything tangible to walk away with (aside from a certificate). Think of our Animation Business Accelerator as investing in your own animation business, not as a course. 

There’s a lot to learn, and a lot of guidance you’ll need to succeed. And your coach and community will be here for you the entire time.

What exactly is included in the program?

Depending on the plan you choose, our Animation Business Accelerator program includes:

  • All-You-Can-Learn Lessons - Life-changing video training lessons specific to the business of animation. Our freelance animators' plan has 53 in-depth lessons and our studio owner plan offers an additional 13 lessons. 
  • Implement-It Worksheets - Extensive worksheets that turn your learnings into action.
  • Do’s & Don’ts - Detailed lists of easy-to-follow steps for every lesson.
  • Silver Platter Extras - Supplementary documents and files to complement lessons.
  • Hand-Selected Books - Recommended books to further your learning.

While you are enrolled in the Animation Business Accelerator program the following is included for FREE:

  • The Neighborhood - A thriving members-only community where no post ever goes unanswered
  • Ask Ben Anything - Monthly office hour calls with our Head Business Coach, Ben Marvazi
  • No-Limit Support - Unlimited email responses to any business questions you have
  • Learn & Bond - Fun social and learning events to network and bond with other ambitious animators
  • Endless Growth - Access to all ongoing additions, updates, and extras

How long is the Animation Business Accelerator?

Animation Business Accelerator consists of two programs.

The Freelancer path is 10 weeks and covers 52 video lessons targeted to freelance animators wanting to advance their freelance careers. While the Studio Owner path is 14 weeks and offers 13 additional video lessons targeted to those who want to start or grow an animation studio.

Does the Accelerator Program work internationally?

Absolutely! The techniques outlined in the accelerator program are designed for you to handle local and worldwide clients no matter where you live.

Can I have a job or do client work while going through this program?

Absolutely! We never want you to be in a position where you can’t pay your bills and don’t feel comfortable going through the Animation Accelerator program. We in fact recommend that you have money coming in so that you don’t have to worry or be stressed and can focus on the program when you’re not working.

Do I need any experience to start the program?

Do you know how to animate? If yes, then you have the experience to take the leap! Your animation skills, eagerness to learn, and drive to succeed are what you need to ensure a successful freelance animation career or studio!

How much time do I need to devote to this?

You can actually go through the video lessons at your own pace and invest as much or as little time as you want. If you want to achieve success, you need to invest the time at some point.

A lot of time gets lost through trial and error when learning and trying to grow an animation business on your own. Going through this program will save you lots of valuable time and money.

What if I’m not successful after this program? How do I know this will work? How can I be sure this will work?

There’s no guarantee that you’ll be successful after this program, but if you follow our proven system and put in the hard work it requires, you will no doubt be in a better place than before you enrolled.

Everything we teach has been already proven in Ben’s animation studio. Since 2011, he’s spent tons of time, money, and other resources figuring everything out - so you don’t have to.

We also offer our Triple Your Income guarantee - If you don’t at least triple your income as a result of the program within a year of implementing everything you learn, we’ll refund your tuition in full.
