Marketing Your Business Skills By Teaching Others

www.srsvirtuatassistant.comLooking for a great way to market your business and increase your customer base. Teach a class for the community on a business skill you have or use that would benefit a small business owner. There are people out there that want to learn what you already know they just don’t have the time to learn it by themselves. You can be their lifesaver!

Finding a group to do this for is not that difficult. If you go to any Meetup groups you can ask if they need a speaker. Most are always glad to have someone volunteer to come talk. You can also check with your Chamber of Commerce to see if they need a speaker at their next meeting. Your local public library might even have speakers come in to talk. You might not get paid monetarily but it will be good publicity for you and your business.

Another tip about your first class is to give basic beginner knowledge. Then as people begin to ask questions tell them that you had so much to share but you wanted to respect their time now. But you are having a class to go into deeper details. Perhaps gather business cards or ask them for their names and emails and you will mail the details of the future class to them. You can then charge for the next class and you already started to fill your seats for that class.

Have you taught a class on a business skill your use? Tell me about it. How did it go?

  1. Great idea- and, if you are hard pressed to find a venue, create your own. Offer a one hour seminar at the local coffee shop or something similar. (It may work if you have a free parking and a decent conference room at your office, like we do.)

    I sometimes speak at public libraries and other groups on photo organizing and I talk about social media tips at my networking meeting. There are always people out there looking for information that you have…important for people to know not to sell themselves short. We all can learn from each other!
