Engaging Your Following

Be Persistent

At Skillshare, it’s possible to teach thousands, even tens of thousands of students around the world and turn teaching into a substantial part of your monthly income. Top teachers on the platform have grown large student followings and see returns of over $100/hour from teaching regularly, giving them the flexibility and freedom to pursue the careers and projects they love. 

In order to build the kind of community that can sustain you on Skillshare, you need to keep at it. Once students complete your first class, they’ll be hungry to learn more. Continue creating classes in adjacent topics to build an engaged audience that keeps coming back to learn from you.
