Are you passionate
experts in a hobby? Do you want to share your obsession?
Then, we are happy
to inform you that you can teach everything under the sun, from

your expertise and enthusiasm. The best part is… you can get paid
for that! Who said that a hobby is just that? Just grab your computer
and prepare for battle!
Create an account in a teaching platform
With the term
“teaching platform”, we do not mean platforms in which only
classes included in the school curriculum are taught. We are
referring to platform in which every skill can be taught, such as
playing the guitar. Teachers are paid in every platform according to
the policy followed by each one. You only need an username, a
password and an e-mail address. Boom! Now you have an account and
your very own channel!
Learn how to make a video
Video teaching is
here to stay! There are many programs that aid you in making a video,
such as CamStudio, for which we offer a short tutorial for the least
acquainted ones. There are also many programs for editing and mixing.
In order to get the hang of the video making process, you will have
to record some testing videos and try to edit them, in order to see
your strengths and weaknesses. It may take some time, but it is truly
If you are a
teacher, you may be familiar with the term. Your video should have a
specific topic and there should not be any diversions from it or it
will be difficult for your students to follow your train of thought.
A very good solution is to make video courses that stand out on their
own. That said, you can direct them to other videos that elaborate on
any of the points raised.
Money makes the world go round!
million-dollar question: How do I make money from this? First, let’s
get this out of the way: video teaching will not make you a
millionaire, especially in one day. However, if you share your videos
on social media, such as your Facebook profile, you will attract some
viewers. You don’t need to b a marketing guru; you just need to be
acquainted with the basics we offer in our guides about marketing.
The more viewers you get, the faster you make money.
The most important
element is the passion about what you do! It will shine through, even
if you have some performance anxiety in your first videos, and it
will attract more students. Good luck!
