3 Secrets For Growing Your Skillshare Income:

1. Be a great teacher, not a filmmaker:

Many of our most successful teachers filmed themselves at home with screencasts and webcams in 2015, proving how it’s the quality of your content that makes you a great teacher on Skillshare, not your video skills.

Skillshare students love our top teachers! Whether that’s because they take the time to comment on every student project,  break down complex topics, or let their unique personalities shine through, strong student-teacher bonds lead to great reviews and teacher success.

3. Teach (shorter classes) a lot:

It’s actually pretty simple: the more you teach, the more money you make. With our bite-sized class format, every class doesn’t have to take weeks to make. Our top teachers leverage how the platform works by sharing 20-minute classes on a regular cadence.
