LiveXP gives you exposure and access to many students from around the world. But you can also be proactive and boost your chances of attracting a larger audience. Here are 10 tips on how to do it.
If you’ve never done it or don’t know what to stream about, have a look at our article about ideas for livestreams.
Host livestreams regularly
If you do it, for example, once a week, more people have the chance to see you and become your students.
Write articles for LiveXP blog
You’re free to write articles for the LiveXP blog about learning or teaching a language. At the end of each article, a reader (a potential student) can find more information about its author (you) and book a lesson with you, which increases your chances of getting more students. If you want to try your hand at writing the article and sharing your experience, follow these instructions.
The trick is to try different formats available on LiveXP. Some people will discover you through livestreams. Others may come looking for courses and will see one by you. These are your potential students right there.
Make your livestreams/lessons/courses useful
Give actionable tips. Add helpful articles to tiles. Get to the point sooner rather than later. No one wants endless theorizing.
Make your content presentable
Make sure your materials look good, clean, and easy to understand. It may take some time but it will pay off.
Prepare for lessons and streams
Make sure you know well what you’re going to be talking about or showing. Prepare everything you need in advance. Dress appropriately and remove any distractions in the background (visual distractions and noises).
Offer bonus materials
Treat the first 3/5/10 people who book a lesson with you to some exclusive materials. The materials need to be of real value, not just a formality.
Make use of Referral Program
Share your personal referral link on social media. This will let you earn an extra +20% on top of what you usually earn lessons.
Don’t go crazy on your prices… straight away
If you’re just starting out on LiveXP, make sure your pricetag per lesson is not too high. If you don’t have a steady stream of students yet, try more moderate pricing at first, and then you can work your way up from there.
Pay attention to your rating
Your rating is displayed on your tutor card, and students across LiveXP can see it. It’s an important factor when students decide whether to book a lesson with you, so encourage them to rate your lessons. If you get a low rating, get in touch with the student and work out the issue that caused it. It’s a chance to improve.
