Who can prepare tutorials for learn-with-video-tutorials?

Video tutorials may be prepared by anyone, who wishes to share their knowledge of a certain subject, and can make high quality video material covering the selected subject.

What kind of tutorials will be accepted by and published on the learn-with-video-tutorials website?

It is up to the author to decide whether the tutorial he prepared is free or paid. The author also selects the subject of the course. However, it is important that the subject be of interest to a large group of people (target audience). Paid tutorials will be published on the learn-with-video-tutorials website and made available to clients after the payment is made. Each course must contain a free lesson. Video material may be recorded with a camera and edited with video editing software or it may be produced using program for screen-capturing video sequences. We only accept courses in the English language version.

What criteria must your video tutorial fulfill?

The tutorial must contain:

  • carefully prepared video material (without mistakes and errors) – the video material must be your original work, it must not be a copy of someone else’s work,
  • the course should contain practical examples, and the knowledge should be presented in a simple and concise way,
  • comments in “balloons”,
  • voice explanations (they may be recorded using speech synthesizer),
  • a backing track – a free instrumental track without vocal,
  • a final sequence with an advertisement of the learn-with-video-tutorials website,
  • the title, the table of contents and the author’s name.

What do financial terms of cooperation look like?

  • Authors receive 50% of the profit on the sales of their tutorials.
  • Authors who have developed 15 tutorials or more (provided that the minimum length of each tutorial is 2 hours) will receive 55% of the profit on sales of all their tutorials.
  • Authors who have developed 30 tutorials or more (provided that the minimum length of each tutorial is 2 hours) will receive 60% of the profit on sales of all their tutorials.

The buyer pays money DIRECTLY into the author’s PayPal account. Therefore, authors of paid tutorials should create their own PayPal account. Next to the course published on the learn-with-video-tutorials website, there will be a PayPal button linked directly to the author’s account. In this way, the buyer pays the whole sum into the author’s account. The author is obliged to transfer half of the profit made in each month to the PayPal account of the learn-with-video-tutorials website owners till the 10th day of the next month.

Why is it worth cooperating with us?

  • Apart from the description of the tutorial, an “about the author” section will be made available on the website for self promotion all over the world,
  • Contrary to most publishing houses (that publish books and magazines), the author receives a fair share of profit (in case of traditional publishing houses, the author’s fee (royalties) amounts to 0-15% of the net price!!!), and the money is transferred directly to the author’s account,
  • the copyright is owned by the author,
  • the owners of the website provide technical help and assistance ( a short sequence to end the course with, a program emulating typing text in the Windows system – helpful when entering large blocks of text, etc.)
  • the owners of the website promote the courses by means of different promotional campaigns.
  • simple terms of cooperation, no bureaucracy, cooperation on terms similar to auction websites (the author develops a course, sends it to the ftp server, the course is published on the website, clients buy the course by transferring money directly to the author’s account, the author pays the agreed percentage of profit into the owners’ account monthly).
