Get Social with GoToTraining and make some money in the process!

They say everyone is good at something, I say why not get paid for it at the same time?  Let’s face it, not everyone is lucky enough to have there talent/hobby/passion also be their job, but that doesn’t have to mean you can’t get rewarded for doing it anyway.  With GoToTraining you can hold online classes for up to 200 people, where you teach others what you know about your special skill or talent and charge them for it.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with GoToTraining you can find it’s features page here.  The RevStream feature ties into PayPal, so once you’ve set up your PayPal account you can start charging students that attend your classes.  Sounds pretty simple right?  Well while “If you build it they will come” worked for Kevin Costner, odds are you are going to need to work a little harder, even if you are teaching the secrets of the Universe.  This is where the getting social part comes in and GoToTraining is about to add some new features that will make it easy!
