My name is Gabrielle. :) I’m a portrait artist, illustrator, and teacher here on Skillshare and I’m so excited to be a part of this month’s New Teacher Training!
Teaching on Skillshare brings me so much joy and it gives me more freedom in my career than I could have ever imagined. So I’m really happy to hear many of you are on your way to releasing your first class!
In this Ask Me Anything, we will be focusing on marketing and class merchandising.
You may be wondering: How do I get students to join my class? Where should I promote my class? How do I do it without sounding sales pitchy? What exactly should I share on social media? When should I share it? How do I get my class trending on Skillshare? How can I encourage students to upload class projects? How do I get positive reviews? What hashtags or keywords should I use? How do I make an eye-catching cover image? Where can I find great fonts for my cover image? How do I convert potential students into real students?
I’ll be happy to answer all these questions and more to the best of my ability! So please leave your questions below. I’ll be sharing tips and resources that have been most helpful to me as I’ve built my Skillshare channel!
Hoping to see you on September 26th! I can’t wait to chat soon. :)
