Business Communication (BizCom) SIG of JALT:

Entrepreneurial Ideas for Teachers

Date: Saturday, June 19th, 2021 Time: 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

Speaker: Todd Beuckens

Creating and monetizing a product has never been easier due to advances in technology. As a result, many educators are interested in self-funding their own products. This presentation will look at three main ways educators can create and monetize a product online using the APS model, which stands for Ads, Products and Services, and learn the pros and cons of each approach. Also, attendees will learn about various tools and platforms for creating an array of different content or products. The presentation will look at all phases of creating a product: design, production, delivery, marketing, and payments.

This presentation will also offer an open mic, or elevator pitch session, where attendees can present their ideas for a product and gain feedback from the attendees. These ideas do not need to be detailed plans, but just ideas potential creators have had floating around in their head. If you would like to pitch your idea, please submit it in advance, so we can manage the submissions, and we will contact you.
