    Anyone else here use Videos as a reminder or learning tool outside of lessons for students?

    I started doing it about 6 months ago on my Youtube channel, and i noticed how much people seem to refer to them esp. as beginners.

    Ive kept the videos unlisted(only people with the link can view), so theyre exclusive to my students.

    Plus the benefit of general technique/popular songs is once I’ve uploaded it for one, i can then farm out the link to anyone else who might benefit from it in the future.

    If you have already had this idea, can i ask what software you use for compiling videos or graphics with videos?

    peace 🙂

    Hey Mark,

    Great post – I know a few teachers are starting to move towards provide supplementary video content alongside their tuition. Like Tom Jackson in Ipswich (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4oVQ5Hk_GAs) and Paul Crame in Norwich (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_8sAQPuvIO4).

    Indeed, so much so that I am starting to develop platforms for teachers who do create online content, either for their own students or for the online community, to have a sales page to push their viewers to. Essentially the idea would be to get the free content viewers to click through from YouTube onto the sales page, where they complete an action (sign up for a free webinar, sign up to gain more content etc.). From there they are presented with a freemium model and a premium model of X, so whether that is free group webinars basically advertising to entice students to come for paid 1-2-1 Skype lessons, or free content with more content unlocked with the premium package etc. Just in the ideas stage at the moment – but really interesting that you brought it up.

    Would you ever consider making videos for a wider audience, if we were able to design a sales process where there was a direct financial outcome for doing so?
