5 Ways to make money teaching online courses

People have been known to make over a million dollars a year teaching courses that they create just once. John Azzi and Eliot Arntz made over a million teaching a online programming course on iOS 8 app development and its new Swift programming language. Similarly, Rob Percival made over a million dollars by offering four different courses online.

If you use something on a daily basis, chances are you already know more than most people about it and they would love to learn from your expertise. Why not offer something that helps them and you too for some extra money. You would be surprised to know that Microsoft Excel is the most sought after course in Udemy, the largest online marketplace for courses. But there are other things that you might consider simple that you could offer such as Evernote basics, Learn Scrivener Fast, and Master Sketchup. There are many places where you can host these courses and make money when people enroll for them.
