Ever have one of those days when nothing goes right â€“ such was the day I had yesterday. Our internet for whatever reason decided to go out and stay out most of the day. So this newsletter is coming to you a day late. As a reminder weâ€™ve talked about it many times before is you need to have a back up plan in case something goes wrong. You will have things go wrong, but the more you plan, the better the outcome will be.
REMINDER â€“ next week you can get involved. We would love to hear from you about topics you would like for us to talk about, successes youâ€™ve had (you can share them â€“ include links to your site), what youâ€™re having trouble with. If we donâ€™t hear any questions from you then there will be no newsletter next week â€“ and weâ€™ll resume posting on the 27th.
We would like to welcome our new subscribers â€“ we have a ton of content you may not be aware of â€“ you can access it here – http://www.cleverapple.com/blog/ if you want to learn you can use search which is on the right side of the page.
In Case you missed it â€“
We talked about setting up payments for your Webinar / Online tutoring.
Tools for Tutoring using Webinars / Online Video Chat / Conferencing â€“
In our online tutoring guide we give you 4+ different solutions on how to do the technical part of setting up your video class. One of the easiest methods to use is Google Plus.
Google Plus is a great system to use because almost everyone has a Google account and if they donâ€™t itâ€™s very easy for them to sign up.
You want to make sure you have a â€œweb camâ€ and that itâ€™s setup. You want to make sure your students know when the class is going to be. You then invite them to join your Google Plus and let them know youâ€™ll be online 5 minutes before the class starts.
Youâ€™ll want to make sure you test things out a bit first. To start a â€œHangoutâ€.
- Log into Google Plus.
- Click on the right hand box that says â€œStart a Hangoutâ€
- You will need to install a plug in.
Here are some excellent resources if you have any questions.
This Plus post has some great pictures you can check out.
Tips for Running your Presentation â€“
- Make sure folks get more value than theyâ€™re expecting.
- People are busy make sure you start and end on time.
- Give them something free they arenâ€™t expecting.
- Give them a discount for more of your services, ask you to recommend you to their friends.
- Have Fun. As you do these youâ€™ll get more and more at ease doing them.
