Some helpful tips for creatives wanting to implement tutorials into their content but there was a lot of reference made to the teachers own niche and her own projects which always makes me abit weary of 'self promotion' as a secondary agenda. It also contributes to the class being 'niche specific' versus applicable to a more general audience. Purely my own 'somewhat overly paranoid' opinion here. Nothing personal. I did get a lot of value myself as I'm a creative content marketer too but couldn't help but notice the afore mentioned points. Cheers !!

Lots of good info that I hope to put to use.
Really great tips for creating original ideas and taking them all the way through to a comprehensive and well shot tutorial. Perfect for your own blog or for a freelance project.
Really helpful and to the point explanations about creating good tutorial posts. I've learnt a ton of new things and have my head spinning round thinking about all the things I want to make!
