Instructor Frequently Asked Questions
No. Publishing an online course of substance and high utility to your target students is a significant undertaking. It requires many hours of planning, storyboarding, design, filming, and editing. Instructors should be ready for an investment of time and money. However, the production costs that we offer to approved instructors are heavily discounted compared to what you would pay an agency to put it altogether for you. The ultimate cost depends on a range of factors, which we detail in the info pack. Generally, the larger your social media following or media profile, the lower the cost but this is by no means the only consideration.
We’re not for everyone. If your course is very short, the content is already widely available online, or it’s not focused on helping people grow a business then it won’t suit Nerds of Business. If you meet the criteria on this page (above), and you want more direct hands-on support with the production and marketing of your course than most other platforms can offer then we’ll be a good choice.
Yes. Approved instructors enjoy access to the pooled marketing resources of the platform which makes it easier to achieve sales activity. However, many instructors have aggressive sales targets and for this we offer additional paid marketing packages. Once again, these packages are heavily discounted compared to what an agency would normally charge.
