It took me less than a month to create my first class. I picked design category as I want more bonuses. Skillshare is giving $100 for every new teacher with first class. And giving more $100 (total of $200) if the class is in the category mentioned in the monthly teaching challenge.
So, my first month result was: I got the $200 bonus, and got the teaching share for about $35 from about 35 premium students who enrolled into my class. I got about 150 students, but only 35 were premium students and gave me the teaching royalty pool.
Right now, they still run the monthly teaching challenge with this $100 or $200 cash prize (sent to your paypal in the next month).
So, if you never make money before and want to feel it next month, I would suggest you go to skillshare and create your first class teaching what ever you can. It's a guaranteed $100 you can have!
I'm not promoting the site. I just want to share this opportunity to every newbie here.
You don't need to invest anything, but your knowledge and time to produce your class.
They did recently change the rules for the guaranteed $100 bonus so I thought I would add it to this thread.
To be able to get $100 guaranteed on Skillshare you will have to:
1. Be a new member (yes, I mean this for newbie)
2. Join Skillshares class "Teaching a Great Skillshare Class" (easy click)
3. Follow their guidelines (easy to do)
4. Get one paid referral (I ask my sister for this)
5. Publish a class (just create simple powerpoint presentation video)
I suggest you read more about it on skillshares website: September Teach Challenge: Rules and Conditions – Skillshare Help Center
Have a good day
