Whether you are in between publishing classes or are looking to increase your monthly earnings, marketing your existing channel of classes on Skillshare is a great way to drive minutes watched and referrals on a regular basis.
Our most successful teachers publish a new class every 2-3 months and market their channel even when they aren’t releasing new content. Check out five fresh tactics for re-marketing your Skillshare channel.
Highlight skills from your catalog of classes:
Skillshare students are always looking for ways to level up their skill set, so highlighting individual skills they can learn from your class content is a great way to increase your minutes watched in older classes. Try this tactic out by sending a Discussion post to your following that lists relevant skills within your classes.

Celebrate a class milestone:
Announce your class milestones on social media to drive more minutes watched and referrals. Plus, seeing that other students have taken the class gives you additional credibility as teacher.
