Hello Warriors,


I've been trying to figure out this one but I haven't the slightest clue. Perhaps some people here can be kind enough to help.


Okay. So, I have appeared many times on national television in Canada giving educational advice. I have also hosted a local education television show for two seasons.


I have tried and tried to monetize my 'expertise' online but with the combination of having a full time job as a teacher and the vast amount of free educational tools online, I can't seem to bring in as much money as I would like. Furthermore, from my experience, I don't think that the education niche (elementary aged kids) is a 'money maker'.


So, I was hoping that someone here can help me figure out a way to transition from education to another online niche. What's important though, is that I want to find a niche whereby I can use my TV shows and guest appearances as part of my 'new' platform to showcase my credibility and that I am 'somebody'.


How can I transfer my expertise as a TV host/national TV contributor/certified teacher to a completely different niche online?


I am looking forward to your input.

    Hey my friend a couple things come to mind.

    One is the guy who was a Pro Announcer then started creating Video sales pages for marketers and did very well with that.

    The other....you can go over seas.

    Alot of people have gone to another Country like Japan and their skills became much more valuable. Even as consultant.

    You could also create a product that helps people who are shy in public speaking.

    OK just a few thoughts.

    Where there is will there is a way.

      Thanks Art!


      Yes, helping others with public speaking had crossed my mind. It is interested though, I have spoken in public several times and have found it to be a very different experience to being in a television studio behind a camera.


      Thanks for your input.

    I am not sure why you'd feel the kids niche wouldn't be monetize-able. I remember reading a year ago or so about someone who's giving private tutoring lessons over Skype for 4-5 figures a lesson.

    Maybe my memory is lacking and even if it was 10 times less, I can still see a very profitable market to tackle into, especially with a background like yours.

    I couldn't find the original article on a quick search I did now, but here's another similar one:

    On the same line, there's also the growing issue of bullying and cyber bullying and with the right tools and platform, you could be helping lots of parents and children, whilst building a brand. Anyway, my two cents over this.

    What I suggest you do, no matter the niche is to build a list. Always build a list that you then monetize through various methods. Either affiliate offers or, even better based on your expertise, your own products.

    this niche can be quite monetize-able, if you come up with new ideas and things that can help students or (in fact since your specific intended audience i.e. school children) parents.
