Today's class is class number one from the fun ways to market your classes online class Siri's And as part of our training here today, I'm going to share with you how this turned into a class. Siri's from originally being planned is one class. I'm Devora Lansky, best selling author and course creation specialists, and in this class, Siri's, you'll discover a variety of ways to market your classes online. So here's what we'll cover in this first class in this Siri's. First of all, you'll see that the first bullet point says Class two. That's because the class year in is Class Number one And here's the thing. When I first started planning this class, I thought it would be one class. But as I began developing the content, I realized that it was a Siri's with seven classes. So here today we're gonna be going through class number one, and Class number one is an overview off what you can look forward to in this Siri's. Now, as you're creating your own class content, you may want to create an introductory video or a class overview video. Because your students convey, you can easily view that first video whether there enrolled on skill share or not, and it often lets people know if they want to dive further and take your full class. So in this introductory class, you're going to be discovering, ah, variety of ways to market. This is an overview class of what you can expect in the Siri's, so we are currently in class number one. In Class Number two, we're going to learn about how to market your classes via skill share. In Class three. You'll learn how to market your classes, the your block, and then we'll go on and you'll learn how to market your classes via your book. The A Pinterest, via the social networks and via audio. And the reason I decided to turn each of these topic areas into a full class versus a section of a single class is so that we could really dive deep in each area and so that the content would be even more valuable to you. So here are the class covers, which you can look forward to seeing in this class. Siri's and I'm hoping that you're getting ideas or, as you go along, that idea spark for you for creating your own class. Siri's one of the reasons you want to mark your classes in a variety of ways. You can create a multi pronged marketing campaign, and that way you're reaching people in a lot of different areas. Some of the same people will see you across the platforms, and it will really help you increase your visibility, your credibility and your class enrollments when they refer to the Internet as the World Wide Web. If you envision a Web where you have the threads going for one place to another, your marketing can be seen that way. So you're weaving a marketing web by creating a presence on a variety of different platforms, and in this series, we're going to touch on ah, lot of those. So what we're gonna do now is I'm going to dive in briefly and share with you an overview of what you can expect in each class in this series. So again, we are currently in class number one. What you can look forward to in the next class class number two of the Siri's is you will learn how to market your classes via skill share. And then this is pretty exciting because there are a lot of built in marketing funnels that you can tap into. We're going to really dive deep in this class. So here's an overview on skill share. You can grow your visibility and your credibility because you have the opportunity to reach a huge number of students on skill share. The more people that view and review your classes, the more students will discover you getting seen on skill.

Because you'll be exposed to new audiences and leaders in new circles who are related to your topic area. You can also grow your income with your skill. Share class in a variety of ways, and here are the two most popular. The first is with premium referrals when you refer people that you know as students or his teachers to skill share, using your referral link and in the class number to all be going in depth, how to locate your referral link and much, much more. But the essence is when you share your referral link. When someone signs up through your link, you'll receive $10 for each person who signs up through your link and skill share currently pays out on the 16th of each month, so that's a great way to boost your income from an additional source. They also pay you based on the number of minutes your students watch your classes. So when you're just getting started and have one class, what will happen is those students will be emailed by skill share to let them know when you have your next class. So you're second class will have even more students, and it will grow exponentially and so you can watch your income grow exponentially. While you're continuing to create classes and continuing to market your classes and then tapping into the skill share, marketing avenues will help you also really expand your reach and grow your class attendance, which will help you to grow your income. So in this class you'll learn how to get seen on skill share in this class number two, which I'm describing now because skill share provides you with a wide variety of class marketing opportunities.
