SkillShare is a website to get quality courses taught by creators, professionals, and entrepreneurs. Learn (or teach) anything from creative writing, design, web development, photography, music, soft skills, social media marketing, storytelling, business analytics, leadership, management skills, and a lot more. If you want to jumpstart your freelancing career, SkillShare is almost a necessity. There are tons of quality information for a small price. You can join SkillShare for free and get access to 1,800+ courses. Ramp up your learning and access 25,000+ additional courses just for $6-$12 a month. That's a lot cheaper than other learning websites where you need to pay per course.
Let's talk about earning with SkillShare. As a course creator, you can earn anywhere from $200/month up to $100k/year! That's almost comparable to a full-time job. Teachers get paid by the minute that students watch their videos. It works like a royalty system. SkillShare charges a monthly subscription from its students which then gets pooled and distributed to its content creators monthly. Let's say the monthly subscription pool collected is $1000. If the overall watch time on SkillShare is 100 minutes and your videos were watched for 10 minutes, you get $100 or 10% of the $1000 subscription pool. Don't start telling your mom to watch your videos 24 hours a day. As long as your topic stays relevant and students watch it, you get paid.
Teach a subject that you are very familiar with. Experience adds depth and substance to what you are teaching.
Make the course fun and informative. Keep students engaged until the end. Remember the longer students watch your videos the more you earn.
Promote your class on the internet - Facebook groups, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, Pinterest, specialty blogs, and websites.
