OK, here's the landing page: http://www.teachyourselfanything.online/
It's basically a content aggregator to help people teach themselves something. So how does one monetize this? Ideas so far:
Affiliate links: resources that link to Amazon (i.e. books) would be affiliate links. Obviously there has to be a lot of traffic for this to make any money.
Advertising: a sponsored resource at the top of pertinent topics. A perfect example is Brilliant.org, which is doing an aggressive advertising run for their original educational content. The "Quantum Mechanics" topic page would have a resource right at the top for their "Quantum Objects" course. This would obviously apply to all the other online courses and similar businesses.
But is that it? I've been scratching my head for some kind of premium offering. Clearly self-education is really valuable—I myself paid for a Brilliant subscription! But Brilliant is offering original, high-quality content. I'm offering aggregated and curated content. If I were to offer a subscription service, it's not clear what that would buy you.
Thoughts, opinions, criticism? Thanks all!
