Do you have something to share with up-and-coming online marketers?
Maybe you’re an expert at driving traffic, or have taken your blog from 0 to 5,000 subscribers in record time, or perhaps you’ve mastered using social media to make sales.
Whatever your area of expertise, if it involves making money online – legitimate money, no shady tactics – then I want to hear from you. I have to warn you, though – NAMS is not a pitch-fest. It’s an educational opportunity. So if you’ve got knowledge to share, fill out the form below, because I’ve got hundreds of hungry students who want to hear what you have to say.
Before you do though, just a little clarity.
We have two types of instruction:
- Weekly Live Training (WLT) – Webinar based training that runs about an hour. Here are the guidelines for that training. ALL NAMS Live Event instructors are expected to do at least one weekly live training session. And prospective instructors (unless I know you personally) must do a WLT
- NAMS Live Event Instructor – There are a few requirements to becoming a NAMS instructor:
- Know NAMS – This only makes sense to me. You would not try to write a magazine article on raising problem teens and submit it to Organic Gardening because they both use the verb “raising,” would you? Of course not. If you don’t know NAMS, you’re not a member, or haven’t attended a NAMS event, then you don’t know how we do things. And we do things VERY differently from other events.
- Teach - the focus of our instructors is on teaching, not selling. We can teach selling. You can and should be such a good teacher that people want to learn more from you by buying your products, but the emphasis is on teaching. If you make a proposal to sell, sell, sell, I’ll say no, no, no.
- Expertise - what do you do better (or at least as good) as anyone else? You have to practice what you teach. And you have to be able to prove it with real data.
- Unique - Okay, I get it. We’re all unique, but some are more unique than others. Are you teaching something that is not already being taught at NAMS? If not, what makes you and your approach different?
- Value - Are you willing to commit to the NAMS members by participating occasionally in the forum to answer questions and build relationships? Are you willing to offer special deals on your products to the NAMS folks? And are you willing to only promote my affiliate links to your products to the NAMS folks – yes, we’ve all got to eat…
- Jerklessness - (This may be the most important!) I have one unbreakable rule. I don’t deal with jerks. Life is just too short. I used to use cruder language to declare that rule, but have softened over time – the language, not the rule. It’s the same. If you don’t like people; if you aren’t generous and compassionate; if you feel a twinge of unease as if you know when you’re taking advantage of people sometimes and don’t really care; if you’re not focused on helping others and can’t subscribed to the ancient Greek philosophy of “Enlightened Self-Interest: Wha’ts good for you is good for me”; then you probably shouldn’t apply to be an instructor at NAMS.
If you meet those qualities listed above, please, please, please apply to be an instructor at NAMS. We are always looking for people who can bring new value to NAMS members.
