If You Have Skills, You Can Teach and Earn from It

Hi Everyone! On today's post, I would like to share with you a topic that is very close to my heart. It's about teaching and training. I guess it's not a surprise to many of you because you've seen me going around in different parts of the country giving talks and training on how to get started in online freelancing.

I am doing this to help, inspire and inform people that there are many online jobs out there that they can check and make a decent living from. However, that is not why I am writing this blog post. I am writing this to share with you the other way of earning a living online, and that is by sharing your knowledge and expertise through online teaching and training. 

Many of us are used to the type of trainings where we have to go to a specific training area, stay there for a couple of hours to listen and participate and then go back again after a couple of days to continue with the training. As we are aware, it's hard and expensive to organize trainings like these. And for that reason, only those who have the resources and connections are able to do this. Fortunately, nowadays, even if you don't have much resources at your disposal, you can launch your own online traning program and earn extra cash from it. If you are like me, having this passion in what I do, having the necessary skills and experience, in addition to that desire to share what I know to the world, then having your own e-learning platform is the key in making that a reality.

online-course1When I started to let people know that they can approach me and ask questions about my expertise, inquiries and messages started to pour in. It was an awesome feeling knowing that people are reaching out to you for help and you can indeed help them in the process. But as time goes by, it has become evident that answering repetitive inquiries about the same topics are getting the best of me and I started asking myself if there is a better way of helping these people out without taking much of my time but still deliver the quality support, tips and advice that I usually give out. Then, it hit me that I need to have my own e-learning platform where I can share the stuff I know and simply refer people there. I also realized that you can earn in the process by charging for some of the trainings that you give out. Thus, OnlineJobsUniversity.com was born. 

Having your own e-learning or online training platform has lots of benefits. Let me share some of them below:

a) Having your own online training platform gets you organized

One of the key benefit of having your own e-learning portal is that you will be able to have a place where you can entertain all the questions people have. You will surely get tons of questions and chances are, many of them are basically asking the same thing, how nice it will be if you can just refer to them a previous answer you gave a week ago. Having your own e-learning portal will surely make a difference.

If you are really serious in making it big and be known as an authority in your niche, then having your own e-learning portal will surely help. Showcasing your knowledge and skills is one of the best way to establish authority. People don't just believe what you say, unless they see that you are actually doing it or teaching others how to do it. Your own training portal will be your proof that you know what you're talking about. 

c) Having your own online training platform can earn you money

Online teaching and training is a serious job. It requires time, dedication and effort to be able to come up with the training program and materials. Many of you will probably be willing to give this out for free, but you can also use your e-learning portal as a venue to earn extra cash. Why do you need to charge from time to time? Running your own e-learning platform has its cost. You need to pay for your hosting, domain and of course, other expenses related to it. But of course, the choice is yours.

So if you have skills or expertise and the passion of teaching and sharing what you know to others while earning from it, then, I encourage you to take the path of having your own e-learning portal. If you want to learn how to setup an e-learning portal for all your trainings, I would like to invite you to join our up-coming "E-learning Development and Marketing Bootcamp" that will start this coming November 18, 2014 at 8:30pm. This will run for a total of 12 weeks, with one lesson each week and will only cost you a one-time training fee of Php 3,500.00 


I've partnered with Ms. Janette Toral of DigitalFilipino.com, one of the pioneers in the E-learning industry in the Philippines and is considered the "Mother of E-commerce in the Phillppines", to bring you this bootcamp where you will not only learn how to setup your e-learning portal, but also how to promote and market to others.

Let me end this post by leaving you this famous quote, "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man how to fish and you will feed him for life." Having your own online training platform and courses will surely help others in reaching their dreams and at the same time give you a chance to earn a living from it. That's what I am doing right now and I hope you, too, will take this noble path of helping others by sharing the knowledge and expertise you have earned. God bless.
