    RC Consulting FM Go Video Training

      We have been really impressed with the RC Consulting FM Go Video Training . . .

      http://www.rcconsulting.com/FMGO-Training/index.html

       

      This is the most comprehensive FM Go information source we've seen so far. A real bargain at $29.00 (and supplemented by their FM Go Training Tool that has been out there for a while).

       

      This video series is really a two-fer . . .

       

      We originally started watching the videos (about 7 hours in 10 minute chunks) in the detailed levels and got a lot of tips. Perfect timing for us as we enter beta on our product. And not just how stuff works but tips/tricks, workarounds (some REALLY good ones), and some warnings on what not to do. All of these have already saved us a bunch of development time and researching on our own.

       

      But, I was surprised as how good the introductory videos were. Although this was stuff that I already knew, the way Richard presents it (and the logic behind FileMaker product positioning with '13') is really really good. I was making notes right away because we (and certainly others out there in FMDev-land) are challenged in talking to customers about the new pricing model, 'mobile' in general, iPad vs. Desktop vs. WebDirect, etc. Richard does a great job of covering the various factors behind FileMaker's business model and gives great ideas of how to talk about it.

       

      A big thumbs up from us! This is by no means, the road to riches for RC Consulting. At this pricing level, more of a gift to the community. We do our own video training here and know how much work went into this video training series.

          RC Consulting also gives away "FM Starting Point" which is a good basic CRM template and can be a good place to start working from without having to start from scratch. The price is a gift (Thanks RC Consulting!) and you can download it at http://rcconsulting.com/downloads.html   They keep updating it for each new version and their current version was made for FileMaker 13.  There are several other things that RC Consulting gives away or is inexpensive on their web site (http://rcconsulting.com).  I am an FMPUG coordinator and people have often asked me how to get going from scratch and I usually point them this way.  Obviously there is a lot of customization you will want to do, but as the title says, it is a good Starting Point.
