How to make money on the side with CoachTube

Athletics coaches – at every level – are constantly in search of more knowledge. Coaches “talk ball” with fellow friends, flock to conventions and clinics, pore over books, and watch countless hours of film in search of an edge that could help them score wins on game day. If you're a coach, you know it's considered an honor to be invited to impart the knowledge that you've worked so hard to attain in a clinic-type setting, or asked to guest coach at a camp. Those things can also be a springboard to new connections and job opportunities for the future.

So, here's a key question for you:

Why not use your knowledge and skills – right where you are –  to make some extra cash on the side? 

Thanks to CoachTube, you can do just that.

What is CoachTube? This is a platform that makes it easy to upload your created courses. They'll host them on their platform and even handle all the payment processing. You pick your your topic, film it, upload it, and then start making money – or even donate your proceeds to your charity of choice! Here's another cool part: there are no up-front fees at all associated with creating your own video courses for upload and sale.

Once your course is live, you can pick your own price point. If someone buys your course using your unique coupon code, you keep every cent of the sales price except for a 3% processing rate (via Stripe or PayPal) from CoachTube. If someone finds your video by browsing CoachTube's website, you still keep a whopping 80% of the sales price with no marketing required whatsoever.

If you're looking for ideas for videos of your own, we would recommend visiting CoachTube and browsing their selections there. There are about 30 sports featured on CoachTube and a wealth of sub-topics available from each sport. Perhaps check out a course or two from your preferred sport, just to get an idea of what some others have done successfully in the past. For instance, if you're a football coach, maybe watch a culture-building course from PJ Fleck. You could get “Air Raid certified” with Hal Mumme, or watch Urban Meyer's coaching points for wide receivers.

From there, build out your own ideas and create your content! When you're ready to show it to the world, click “Become a Coach” on the CoachTube website; they'll answer your frequently asked questions and guide you through the process to uploading your first course.

Once your course is live, you can send it out to your friends, promote it on social media, or house it on your website. It will also be available for others to find when browsing CoachTube's website.
