Vanessa Joy has built a very successful online teaching business.
She teaches one-to-one and, recently, she opened a new subscription program.
In this interview, she shares how she managed to have all this success in such a short amount of time. You’re going to love this.
Thanks for watching.
Teaching English online there for those who commit to it. Yes, you’re going to make mistakes at first. Who doesn’t?
The key is to take action and learn as you go.
Vanessa also talked about the importance of taking courses (she is a TEOC member, after all!) and learning what you need to do to get this right.
Vanessa’s goal is to give her learners a safe environment. A bad comment on one of her videos isn’t the end of the world and she’s surprised by the lack of nasty, YouTube style, comments.
She’s also a serial banner!
Getting Students and a Clear Marketing Strategy
Vanessa uses email marketing to fill her schedule and sell her courses.
In summary, this is how it works:
- Give something away for free
- Create content and send learners from your content to your free download
- Create automated emails that build trust and sell your lessons
Vanessa has gone all in and created a monthly course for learners.
Doing something like this is a big commitment. Vanessa was prepared for this and is creating the type of materials that she was creating for free anyway. As you can tell, she’s on top of it all.
- Gumroad: sell anything online (try Selz too)
- Email marketing tutorial
- Teach English Online Course – this is what Vanessa took when starting out.
