Language Lessons

I tried a few other "ideas" which I was really not familiar with and suddenly I got that "momentum". I started, or better I just continue (I was already teaching but had only 2 students) doing what I always did and was very familiar with - teaching Spanish and Portuguese.

I advertised in every possible "free" option on the web with a very competitive price and also negotiate the price until I get the costumer. I advertise every single day or week, really keeping up with it. In just a couple of weeks the number of students went from 2 to 24! Right now I have 5 more students to confirm which I just couldn't confirm right away because I do not have the time that they are asking for.

My tip --- Do not invent, do what you know how to, advertise as much as possible (but make a follow up), do a "great job" not just a good job and they will refer you to others.

Buena suerte! :)

The Tip

To whet your beak

Do what you know and do it great as it was for you (step into your costumer side) and do whatever to get the first costumers ;)
