Become A Sought After Instructor With Your Online Video Course
Being one of the most knowledgeable people about a particular niche is a great thing. People look to you for advice and pay you good money to share your thoughts. The problem is that, for some, it’s quite difficult to get around to different places, and even, speak in front of a crowd. And while a lecture or book could be written, it’s entirely different when you get to talk about something and be present. It’s the same issue for people who are eager to learn.They might not have the resources to be able to go to certain lectures and hear certain talks about subjects they love.
But this isn’t an issue that the power of the internet cannot solve. Online lectures and schools are a thing now that teachers, students, and businessmen alike benefit from. Own a site and a camera and you’re good to go. It costs less, you can work on your own time, and you don’t have to deal with any issues connected to public speaking. Yes, that is better. But consider how much better you would do if, instead of just selling courses on your site, you could sign up for a popular learning marketplace?
Udemy is the world’s largest online learning marketplace with over 14 million students mastering new skills from a huge library of over 42,000 courses. People have made quite a suitable living from being a Udemy instructor; this is the approach we’re going to do.
