I'm thinking about making some YouTube tutorial series on programming. Alternatively to YouTube, learning sites like Coursera or Udemy are an option too.
I have some knowledge so I might as well use it to produce some revenue. But how well-paid is this kind of content? Will it pay off to spend lots of hours on doing the videos?

you'd need a pretty decent amount of views to do it full time, perhaps 20k+ per video with 2 videos a day

the real money to be made is with paywalls on your personal site and selling tutorials or online seminars with that type of content

I thought about this recently. Professor Messer or Mike Meyers have great businesses running just teaching for certifications. I recently entered the IT field and was thinking of starting a blog as I go for my certs. Would probably be worth it.

Udemy and Coursera do shit like that, except they get a percentage of sales because they have the hold of the platforms.

not that difficult to do on your site, don't know how much those sites would add to your exposure in and of themselves

I know it's not a hard thing to do, but since I'm starting off, I think Coursera or Udemy would be a good start. They work by course packs, so for example, I make two full courses of Java and C++ and then if it seems like my audience is starting to stack up, I can just stop and then switch to my own platform.
Another method could be Patreon or Kickstarter, but I guess that would require a lot more of exposure before hand.

Probably not legal, but I made money in college by offering a tutor service for computer science. I basically sent coupon mail to all upper class neighborhoods in the area offering to teach computer science to kids age 6-12, help them have a better future, etc. I basically charged $100/hour to watch the kid play on code.org for a hour and scheduled classes once a week. I had about 20 clients one Summer and felt like a pimp. I'm an Econ graduate and have no clue how to program. Having the knowledge of programming, you could do something similar but construct actual classes. Maybe work a deal with some community center or something to have a classroom during the Summer and offer programming lessons to local kids. Make some faggy game with Javascript or something.

Nice thinking bro!

This seems nice, also tip for op.
If you do this take it easy, don't teach shit like oop and dynamic memory allocation to kids.
Keep it easy and exciting, those kids want to be l33t h4ck3rs.

I'll sub with my 10 accs, link
>>
I dunno if you could make these videos fulltime, but they'd be much appreciated. I'm currently studying and the amount of tutorials that are done by people who speak English as a second language is ridiculous. Clear explanation would be superb

You should check out thenewboston and Derek Banas

>>1498898
WILL YOU ACTUALLY TEACH USEFUL THINGS? Or just the basics and theory bullshit like every high school does?
>>

I'd only explain shit I know, but I'd explain it through, though.
I know what you mean, anon. So yeah, if my title is called "x" then I'll explain x.
>>
>>1498898
if you are doing some useful webdev, I'll sub for sure. By that I mean full CMS, eCommerce type shit.
