5 Best Skillshare Courses for Entrepreneurs


– So what are the best Skillshare courses for online entrepreneurs? In this video, I’m gonna be
sharing five of my top favorites for growing your brand fast, coming up. Hey what’s up, Sean here with THiNK Media, bringing you the best tips and tools for building your influence
with online video, and on this channel, we
do tech gear reviews, as well as tips and strategy
videos just like this one. So if you’re new here,
consider subscribing. And hey, at any point during the video, check out show notes and links
in the description below. I’ll list out all of my
favorite Skillshare courses as well as a few bonus ones
and anything else I forgot. Let’s jump into the video. So I’m super-excited to be
partnering with Skillshare for this video because it’s honestly one of my favorite sites on the internet because it’s a learning community and if you’ve been around
THiNK Media for very long, you know that a devotion
to personal development is something I’m super-passionate about. I really believe that lifelong leaders are lifelong learners, but if you’ve never heard of Skillshare, here’s a quick overview
about what it actually is. It’s an online learning community
with over 15,000 courses to choose from, with new courses
being added all the time, and anybody can take
a class, do a project, and even teach a class, which I think is an awesome opportunity for you and the THiNK Media
community to think about monetizing your knowledge, your
skills, and your expertise. And the user interface is super-cool. You’re able to of course play videos, they have a great mobile
app that you can access, and you have the courses on the go, and there’s also the community aspect, so you can engage in the comments and actually really be a part of a group of creative professionals
who are ambitious and passionate about leveling
up their skills all the time. And the reason I’m so
passionate about this is that I really believe
that to stay relevant in the modern age, you have to always be
leveling up your skills. You know, skill development
is so important for you and for me, so that we can stay
current with new platforms, new trends, new technologies,
as well as traditional skills like leadership, communication,
you know, marketing, and those types of things. And so one of the things that I think that we should all develop is a PDP, a personal development plan, and what I love about
Skillshare is it allows you to pick from courses and actually
go through quality content and level up skills that
you want to develop. So I want to ask you a question, and you can even post it in the comments. What is one of the skills that
you want to work on the most that would move the needle
the most for your brand, maybe your business, your YouTube channel. What skill that if you
worked on and leveled up would actually accelerate
you further, faster? Figure out what that is
and start working on it. But with that, I want to jump
into five of my top favorite topics and Skillshare
courses for entrepreneurs. Number one is business
building and modern marketing. You know, we’re living
in such exciting times with the internet, with the
communications revolution that’s happening, and
there’s really never been a better time to launch
a business, you know. I’ve heard Gary Vaynerchuk
say that we’re living in the greatest era of
entrepreneurship ever, and I really believe that, and with that I think it’s
important that we’re leveling up our business skills and
our marketing skills, and my favorite Skillshare course on this comes from one of my
favorite authors of all time, Seth Godin, so when I
discovered this course, I was super-pumped. It’s called The Modern Marketing Workshop, and it really covers the
essential mindset and philosophy of how marketing has changed, even in just the last few
years, in the last decade, and I think it’s critical
information for you and for me. And there’s another course from Seth Godin called The New Business Toolbox
that’s all about helping you launch a business and doing
it right the first time, and so both of these courses
are pretty incredible helping you develop the right
mindset as well as the tools and philosophies needed for
crushing it in business today and modern marketing. Number two is social
media mastery tactics. You know, social media
is such an awesome way to grow your business and get the word out about what you’re doing as an entrepreneur but there’s so many
nuances and things to learn about each platform. So what’s cool on Skillshare
is there’s courses about Facebook ads, courses
about Pinterest marketing. One recommendation is
Tyson Wheatley’s class that’s all about mobile photography tips for Instagram success and growth, and I think that is great for
entrepreneurs of all levels, to be thinking about how
to storytell the message of their business, of
what you’re doing online, and get the word out, but
I think it’s important that we all learn the best practices of just like shot composition,
of taking good photos, better photos with your
phone, as well as the nuances for social media platforms
for how to get likes, how to get reach, how
to get more engagement, how to actually grow on the platform by learning the details that
the average person doesn’t know and so when you take
even just a quick course on some of these platforms, it gives you the accelerated path to
mastery of those platforms so you can grow your
business faster than ever. Number three is email
marketing and copywriting, and I really believe
that online entrepreneurs need to master these two skills or hire someone on their team
that knows these two skills because they’re super-critical
for the modern age of reaching people and
growing your business. Now when I say copywriting,
what I’m actually talking about is writing marketing copy, which is also known kind
of as words that sell. You know, these are the type of words that go on landing pages, that are actually written out in emails, that can persuade people
and help people understand products, services, and
offerings so that they can make an ultimate buying decision. Good copywriting can
make or break the success of a lot of products
online and can even help when it comes to social
media and getting people to take action. One of the courses that I
love is the copywriting course from Alison Esposito, and
she’s written copy for Google, for Foursquare, for other
brands and it’s great to go through these courses to
kind of wrap your head around what are the best practices
of persuasive writing in the modern age, and again, this isn’t just for writing
emails or writing a sales page for a product or writing a landing page but I also think that really
learning how to write good copy even as a video influencer is important because it’s things like
a headline for your video, writing good titles,
writing good blog posts, writing tweets and Facebook captions, or the first line of text
that creates interest, that gets people wanting
to click on a video or go through and click through the tweet to go to your website. Copywriting is a huge
skill and something that even if you eventually delegate it, I think every modern
entrepreneur should have a little bit of mastery of. Number four is digital content production. Now this is kind of a big idea, and there’s a lot of great
courses and skills to develop underneath this, but what I’m
talking about is things like video editing, or design, or photography, even if it’s just mobile photography, because these are the
tools and the ways that modern entrepreneurs are
communicating the story of their brand, of what
they’re trying to build, and so leveling up these
skills can really accelerate your success fast. On Skillshare, there’s
courses for Adobe Premiere. Caleb Wojcik, who we did
a collab a while back, has a course on Final Cut Pro, so almost any video-editing software that you would want to
learn and get better at, they have a course on it. And even more advanced training
like Drew Geraci’s course on how to shoot timelapses. We actually interviewed him
on THiNK Media a while back. He did the opening for House of Cards, where there’s all those
timelapses in Washington DC. He’s got a whole training
breaking down how he shoots timelapses on Skillshare. One of my favorite
designers, Chuck Anderson, has a great course on creating photo art with your smartphone, super cool. And then there’s tons of
training on things like Photoshop if you want to level up your
design for social media images but also even just training on like Canva, which is a great free
online design platform that also has a paid aspect to it. And so you can see that almost
any kind of design skill or digital content production
skill that you’d want to level up, you’ve got
training inside of Skillshare to do it. Number five is communication. Now that word itself is
not really, you know, sexy for digital entrepreneurs
but it’s actually one of the most important skills
that we all need to master for success, right? Even as a YouTuber or a content creator, we’re talking about communication. As an entrepreneur, if you
need to pitch or get funding, you need to be able to
communicate with people, and so mastering and always
working on your communication is one of the most important
skills that I like to focus on continuously throughout my
life and the different seasons I go through as an entrepreneur myself. And so there’s a great
course on Skillshare by Simon Sinek, the
author of Start with Why on presentation essentials,
how to share ideas that inspire action. And then there’s also some
great courses on leadership and another one called
Crucial Conversations that’s actually a book I’m
going through right now that’s all about how
to talk and communicate when the stakes are high. Lots of cool training to choose from. So those are just a few of the courses that I would recommend
for online entrepreneurs and actually it’s super-cool
because Skillshare is hooking up the THiNK Media community with a two-month free trial
to check out Skillshare, check out the courses I recommended or any of the other courses on
the site for a limited time. So if you want to get access
to that free two-month special, there’s a link in the description below. Just click that, go over to the site, and you can register

  • Good video ! 👍

  • This channel dead, 600 views in 2 hours

  • CristinayNataliaDUO

    Nice!

  • Probably my skill I need to work on is to keep talking and engage the audience so they come back for more videos

  • Ethical and Chic

    Your advices and videos get better and better! Always clear,concise, full of value! Thanks!

  • I want to work on making clearer videos and better story telling. Videography in general would help me. Secondary, just how to market myself & brand. I have a passion for fatherhood and I think we all have a story. Just trying to figure how to make it interesting for everyone so that they will want to subscribe.

  • Ehancing things I already do? Keeping myself in check? I am ready to just go go go. Step out.

  • And thanks!

  • PrettyKittyCommissions

    Loving this video. I might actually restart my Skillshare account because of this!
    The skill that I want to level up on is my awareness and critical thinking. Mostly the awareness of my target market and audience. Being an animal illustrator is great when it comes to niching down, however being unaware of the types of people that would like my content hinders me from making effective content.

  • Nice 👍

  • The Jordan Frisby

    Might be a silly question, but do you earn any qualifications from completing these courses? Also, do you ever have to pay any extra for the courses other than the monthly fee?

  • The biggest problem I'm facing right now im quality, I don't know why my video quality is not good and doesn't look like your video's do.. I have a Canon 70d, Canon 50mm and 18-135.. I'm going to be getting a 40mm.
    What do you think???

  • Thanks for this! Your content is very useful. Keep it up! 👍🏼

  • Thanks so much for this Resource !!!! I really want to learn how to do video editing . I started my channel off using Microsoft Movie Maker, which is simple, but trying to learn any other program with the tracks and all that other stuff gets really confusing and trying to learn from youtube video tutorial that go so fast with little detail. They assume the person knows the basics and they don't speak out every step, plus figuring out which software to learn, hmm… that fit a small budget. I want to edit youtube videos, not make a feature film, LoL . So having the opportunity to skip around the courses and see what fits is AWESOME !!! Thanks again and God Bless you always!!!

  • Kream Cheese Studio Production

    Hey, I am saving up for a canon vixia hf r70 and I'm starting to wonder if its worth it. What do you think

  • Looking to improve three areas: story telling, video editing and productivity. By the way… I was a super timid vlogger and being a part of Video Ranking Academy has helped me step out and "just do it".

  • The skill I need is probably video editing. The software I use is Filmora and is very easy to work with, but I need more workflow training and tips on how to streamline the process. I'd also really like to check out the Communication classes you recommended.

  • Very good information Sean! Trying to format my first eBook on Vellum and preparing topics for a video channel I am anxious to start. Greatly appreciate your help!

  • Seriously, my parents got scammed by Skillshare 🙁

  • Terry Ann Anderson

    Video editing

  • The skills I want are Business Building & Modern Marketing and Social Media Mastery.
    I tried to sign up on Skillshare page but there was a problem on Card Information page. Even if we enter the informations, it doesn't work.
    I really want the trial. How can we do?

  • The Free Radicals

    Hey, Sean, I don't know if you realize it but there is no way to download the course for free unless you sign up with your credit card for a "trial" Spyoff VPN …smells and looks real scamy 🙁 Regards Russell

  • Thanks, Sean. How would you or the community compare the value of skillshare vs. Lynda/LinkedIn?

  • I want to be better with photoshop and later on hopefully build a tshirt business. I've been holding back a little on skill share bc I know u have to pay monthly but can u explain youtube which is free vs. Skill share (paying montly).

  • Hey all! I became a teacher on Skillshare about 2 months ago and I have really enjoyed the platform. If anyone is interested the the design side of entrepreneurship and becoming a freelancer I have 12+ classes on photoshop, going freelance and creating logos. I have seen some people ask if it was worth paying the monthly price for Skillshare over a free platform like Youtube. First of all, Skillshare is ad free, so no more skipping ads while you are trying to learn. Second of all, the quality of video seems to be more professional with a lot of top world leaders in the business and creative worlds having classes on here. There are several class featured on Skillshare that are over $25 to purchase on Udemy, so just watching a few classes a month on Skillshare earns you monthly subscription back. I am a little bias, yes, but it is my favorite go to for learning. I am a teacher, but also I am a student. A friendly link to my profile if anyone is interested in any of my courses: https://www.skillshare.com/r/user/marshdesign

  • I never trust anyone trying to "help" me in business. Especially help with dealing with tech companies. I can figure this out from the actual company's resources. 👍 I watched in horror as someone ripped off my mom's friend with SEO omg. The poor old lady. 🙁

  • This is awesome! I did not know about Skillshare– I am definitely going to set myself up on a plan! I want to learn to give/ write better presentations. Thank you.

  • Thanks for all the Great info, nice work

  • skillshare desperate AF. Tried to cancel account they give me an extra free month.

  • I read a few bad reviews from people. Apparently, once the registration is made it can't be really cancel. According to what I read, Skillshare will do anything to refuse to cancel your account. You will need to ask the bank for the $99 refund.
    It is a good habit to avoid free trails that ask for bank details.
    I wonder if this comment will show on youtube … I'll come back in a couple of days and check it.

  • Thanga Saravanan

    i am a good tutor in adobe applications. i am from India. my english is not so american but can understand very good, could i start this tutoring, plz give me a idea and sometips,.

  • Starts at 2:56

  • I was lured into Skillshare with a “2 month ttial for only 99 cents” I used it for a week, got busy and forgot about it. 2 months later I recieved an email where they thanked me for paying a premium membership. I checked my bank account and 100$ were gone. 100$ dollars were wasted on a service that I never used. And of course it was non-refundable. It’s really shady that they earn money from ripping off idiots who forget easily forget about stuff. They could atleast give an email telling me that the trial was almost over.

  • OffCampusJobs4u

    Usually Skillshare offers new members a 1-month free trial, but I have a special promo for you.

    Here is a link that you can use to get a 2-month free trial.- http://bit.ly/2liIZCs

  • is there song writting courses on it an whats your take on em

  • I'm hoping to learn a bit more about animation through doing Skillshare. I'm on Summer Break right now so it's a great time to do it for sure! I've already started a free trial from watching another YouTuber (Thomas Frank of College Info Geek) but thanks for the video anyway. 🙂

  • Does anyone know if I can share a Skillshare account with a friend and if both of us can watch different classes at the same time logged in?? Reply is appreciated.

    I most certainly don't have a business & am definitely not an entrepreneur but I have a few more days left of a premium trial on skillshare.
    I want to utilise this limited opportunity in the wisest way but I require the best advice.
    I am also passionate about lifelong learning but I don't know what are the best courses for me in order to become my best self.
    I have already been 'procrastinating' on countless websites,articles,videos, social media pages etc every day for over 10 yrs – completely unpaid a going around in a vicious cycle! It's beyond a curse.
    Based on this very brief, can you help me?
    I'm an unemployed, uneducated,unloved,isolated depressed angry failure so I need all the help and I'm mire determined than anyone to prevail!
    Thanks in advance.

  • please join skillshare with the link given below, you will get 2 months free premium skill share usage, if you are kind I will 1free month subscription. https://skl.sh/2uQyk6f

  • Mastery in Modern methods of Education

  • Skillshare is a scam. Once you give your credit card info to the website, it cannot be removed. So, they are able to charge you and do charge you monthly even after you cancel your subscription. This is a scam. Just read the reviews on sitejabber.com. The site even has an F rating from the Better Business Bureau. Don't be fooled by all the good reviews. Otherwise, the site has good courses, but the billing scam in my opinion is evil enough to be disqualifying. This is a scam. Don't sign up.
