Briteskills wants you to earn money by sharing your skills
It is an online marketplace that allows anyone to learn unique skills anywhere, anytime from anyone who is willing to teach. We seek to enhance skill sharing by allowing interested learners to locate appropriate tutors for particular skill that they want to learn, pay and attend the classes. Ultimately people earn money by sharing their skills.
The idea came about in November 2011, but the first prototype was completed by the end of January. We introduced the product to the market in mid-February (Feb 23rd) with a goal to get user feedback which we would integrate into the next development phase.
What is the pain/problem we are solving?
We always want to improve our knowledge or social status by acquiring new unique skills, but most often we can’t find skilled people who can guide us.
Who is eligible to teach?
Are you an expert in a skill e.g. marketing, baking, swimming, investment coaching? If so, then you are eligible to create a profile and start teaching others and they pay you. We believe everyone is an expert in something.
Where do the lessons take place?
Lessons take place live online, as well as recorded videos.
Which lessons/skills are taught?
Anyone is free to teach any skill. The lessons are determined by the teachers who teach them. However, we have to verify that the lessons meet required standards before they are taught to the public.
How much does it cost to register on Briteskills?
Registration on Briteskills is free for all teachers and students. However, to attend a lesson you are required to pay the fees charged by the teachers for respective lessons. A 30% fee is charged on all successfully paid fees.
