“I want to do online teaching in the future, but I’m ready to jump in just yet.”
This is something I hear often.

The 8 Steps to Building Your Teaching Business on the Side
2. Create a new list and a form (AC has a guide to this), and then, link this to your Facebook page (start one if you don’t have one).
3. (Optional) – build a one-page website and include this opt-in form.
4. Create mini-lessons on Facebook and help people. Don’t overthink what you’re going to do. Create your first video based on what you think is best today (keep it short) and take it from there. Create text posts and share images too.
5. Include a call-to-action at start and end of every post. Tell people to sign up to your email list. You can send them to your tab on your Facebook page or to your website. Offer something for free or give a good reason for learners to get on your list.
6. Send an email every week. Again, don’t overthink it. Share learning tips, vocabulary, grammar explanations. Or just tell stories. Engage with your followers.
7. When you’re ready to teach a few lessons, send out an offer on Facebook and by email. Add urgency to your offer by limiting the amount of lessons available or by setting a deadline.
8. Grow your Facebook page by boosting your posts, sharing posts to groups, and by interacting with learners on a one-to-one basis.
