Skillshare is a platform for instructor-led, in-person classes. Teaching on Skillshare can help sustain your livelihood. Here's how.
Skillshare is one of those platforms that i think will be there for a long time. Basically it allows you, with your own knowledge, to teach others about what you know. Simple no? Genius i say.
Teach what you know
The issue is that, this tool will work great if you already are an audience. It's like everything else, if you have au audience and launch a new service, website or blog, you know you will get instant traffic.
So how do you fill up your classes?
Skillshare helps you by 'promoting' the classes you teach. People can search the site to find your classes, but that is not enough.
You need to keep your students engaged and sell them the next classes.
In order to fill up the next class, you need to either find new students or teach the students you taught a class to already, something new.
A platform like Shareist is perfect for this. Keep your audience (ie:students) interested in the topic of the classes you taught by curating articles, posts, news relevant to each class. Between classes, or as a follow up, teachers (you) can keep students engaged, listen to their feedback to come up with topics for next courses, and communicate with them directly or indirectly.
Skillshare is a great app, and I can see Shareist fitting perfectly in the mix to help you stay in touch with your students, keep them interested and discover new topics, engage easily with your students by sharing interesting information where they are (twitter, facebook, Google plus, via newsletter), and grow your audience, and your income, even more.
