As some businesses were affected negatively, other business opportunities were created. Some of the businesses that emerged due to the pandemic are online businesses. Most businesses adapted the online platform to keep their business afloat.
In this article, we’re going to talk about one online business; Starting an online school, that you can start and get a high income from it.
Are you thinking about starting an online business, and you don’t know how, where, and what to start? I will take you through a step-by-step guide on how you can start your online school and generate income.
I have listed the requirements of starting an online school below:
1.A good name for your online school
You need to come up with a good name for your online school. A good name will sell your school and help you get more clients. So take your time and invest in it.
2.Good domain and Hosting platform for your online school
Your online school name will act as your domain; choose a good hosting provider to host your online school. One of the best hosting providers you can try out is Truehost
Once you have a name, domain, and hosting, it is time to develop a great website to host your courses and learners. Here, you can choose to hire a web developer or do it yourself. If you are doing it yourself, you need an LMS (Learning Management System), this is software that one uses in the creating of courses on the website.
I recommend LearnPress plugin because it is free and you easier to use.
You also need a website to integrate this plugin too. There are varieties of website themes to use in WordPress. Some of the best free themes you can use include; Education Hub, Rara Academic, and EducentProfitable topics and Ideas
Once you have all the requirements, you need to come up with good topics to teach, and you can get some good topics to include in your school here; create your content and course outline and upload it to your website.
Some of the best learning topics to offer include Investing, finance, health, diet, making money online, etc. you can sell these materials in terms of video, papers, presentations, or online live classes.
Advertising your online school
There are many ways for you to advertise your school and get clients. Some of them are listed here:
Tell people on Social Media about your school
You can do a video or post a poster telling people about your online school, courses offered, and how to enrol
You can give people offers and discounts once they join your class, you can offer free classes or good discounts.
You can ask people to refer clients to your school and give them a specific commission for their referrals. This will encourage them to bring more people.
