Let’s talk about how to transform your classroom magic into a digital subscription for teachers. When we first started helping teachers, we focused a lot of our efforts on TpT or Teachers Pay Teachers specifically. But as we’ve grown throughout the years we’ve expanded our CEO Teacher® Trailblazer information. And keeping pace with the online times. Our research has led us to find that teachers love making extra income doing things that they are passionate about. They don’t want to have to do a whole lot of extra work (because let’s be real they are already doing way too much)! But they are willing to put in the time and effort to make their side hustle dreams a reality.
Creating a digital subscription in your online teacher business that creates monthly recurring revenue so you can keep teaching in the classroom is a win/win. Create a sustainable and reliable income stream outside of your district payscale. No more worrying about great sales months or the dreaded summer slumps because digital subscriptions offer stability in a way that many of the other pathways we teach just can’t.
I want to share 10 ideas that teachers are using right now to create digital subscriptions. Platforms and ideas for students, teachers, and parents that take the scaries out of this whole online business. And help you build a snowball of income that will just increase over time.

Remember when you went to school to be a teacher and they made you create that digital portfolio? That’s basically what we are going to do today. Break down the ideas you already have. Write down everything you are already doing. And find a way to cohesively create a subscription service that helps others using your talents.
And if staying in your lane and following your dreams to impact even more people outside the 4 walls of your classroom is your idea of a fulfilled life I support that choice as well.
