Techie Training Minus The Geek-Speak



First Class Marketing Progress

Well it has been a couple days since hitting the publish button and so far I've reached 23 students as of the time of me writing this.

So far I'm loving the Skillshare platform. In several months from now, I will look back on this time and remember the hesitation I had to even begin a class.., AND how SILLY that was!

I've been marketing online since 2008'sh and have been using Amazon S3 and the WordPress platform for most of those years. These two items among a few others I'm familiar with, will be the focus of many of my Classes.

I'm amazed at the huge amount of talented teachers here on Skillshare and I'm learning a lot from them.

One of the marketing tactics I've used so far is posting my class links in different Facebook Groups. 

Through my participation in a few different discussions here on Skillshare and commenting on other Teachers classes, I've gained a few Followers.

So between the Followers here and the posting in Facebook Groups, I've been able to gain the 23 Students I have so far.

Here is a link to my class:

Here is a screenshot of one of my posts in a Facebook Group:


I'll pop back in as my Student enrollment increases and as I try different marketing techniques, and let you know what is and is not working.
