I’ve been a teacher on groundbreaking online video workshop platform Craftsy for over 3 years now. I’ve only got one class there but I hope to change that in the future. I’m really happy to be able to get my techniques out into the world, and I’m equally happy that hundreds of other instructors are doing the same and making good money at it.
What you may not know is that when you follow one of my Craftsy links, whether you buy my class or not, I get a little kickback from Craftsy for anything you do sign up for. As a matter of fact, I get more when you use my half-price link than I do when you buy my class at full price or through a normal sale. Counterintuitive? I suppose — but true.
Why am I mentioning this now? March is National Craft Month, and Craftsy is doing a marketing push in all sorts of sectors, even running a commercial on TV. What they’re trying to do is drive new people to Craftsy, and they’re helping out their instructors at the same time. I get a little bonus for every 5 new Craftsy users I get to sign up — and anyone who signs up during this event (before March 16th) is entered into a drawing to choose a craft-focused charity to receive a $1000 donation from Craftsy. If they get enough participation, they’ll double the donation!
For this reason, I’m going to be posting daily on my Facebook page about workshops on Craftsy that I think deserve your patronage. I hope this will expose more people to new workshops they might not have seen, and I hope it won’t be too annoying. Help me out, learn something new, and maybe get a windfall for your favorite crafty charity! Thanks so much!
