All described only a part of the benefits that work on the network. But the best idea can stay in dreams without a business plan. How to start earning, teaching English in Skype?
We are planning a big business with small steps.
Think about how many students to begin with can be taken, what age category and level of language skills. Naturally, at least tentatively come up with what each category of clients can be carried away with – your every lesson should be delayed so that the student would like to come again and again, and the growth of his knowledge would be noticeable. Decide on the desired cost of an hour of work.
Based on this, write a “clinging” ad and place it both online and in real. Do not be overlooked by social networks, special exchanges for tutors, service catalogs and just the websites of your city’s ads and even your country.
Next – work for your pleasure. Money can be received on an electronic wallet or just get on the card. Do not forget to use chat, listen and use video broadcast. Sharing learning files and demonstrating the desktop is a very convenient Skype option that allows you to observe what the student is doing on the other side of the screen. You can watch movies in English with a student, listen to music in the original, connect a third person to chat with a tutor, or even use conferences, etc.
Using only the free features of the world wide web, minimal investments (Internet and computer payments, although it is permissible to work even in an online cafe), you can organize a promising business using Skype and your intelligence.
