The key to being viewed more often is that you do not make use of the same category to publish your courses. Using different categories increases your chances of being seen however if your courses fall in the same category try working with or making use of categories that are close to one another. The best way to avoid this issue is to adapt your content so it may fall under more than one category.

How to make your course to stand out!

Now that you have posted your educational ad it is important that you make your course stand out.

  • Perhaps the most important part of your course is the description that viewers see. It is crucial that your description includes all the important information and details about your respective course. The descriptions play a key role in decision making when a student is exploring the teacher directory to find the most suitable private teacher for themselves. For most students finding a private teacher or choosing who they want to recruit for private lessons is a very important decision thus make sure to present your course in the best possible way by making your description comprehensive yet simple. Students tend to get confused if all the necessary information is not motioned in the description.
  • Images are your best friend; they say w picture is with a thousand words this is indeed true. Uploading a picture of yourself shows that you have nothing to hide it prevents the rise of any kind of suspension and proves that your course and in fact you are legitimate and that there are no games. Apart from those pictures of satisfied students or visual aid to support the content of your course work like magic.
  • Another great media to pass on your message in a short and in an easy to convey way is making a video. You may introduce yourself and mention your experience as well as your accolades.Then you can describe your teaching methods and discuss what makes them effective, be sure to mention what distinguishes you from other teachers in the courses directory. Maybe you could even show your happy students in the video.
  • Another thing you can add to your education ad are craft presentations of your respective course in a PDF file, this is another very effective method to distinguish your educational ad from other ads on the courses directory.
  • Be sure to add some reliable recommendations, this shows that you are trustful and potential students read them before contacting you

How to request reviews

  • If you are providing admirable courses, do not hesitate to ask your former students to give you a review. This counts as great help to attract your future audience. These reviews increase your credibility and ensure students viewing your add that you are experienced. The review does not necessarily have to be a 5-star review it will prove to be a valuable source of information for future students. Do not be ashamed of the ratings that you get as hardly anyone can maintain a five-star rating for long and hardly anyone gets a one-star rating.
  • Reviews are absolutely free, you do not have to pay to add them or get them done if you have former students.That are hard proof of your skill and show are a committed professional.
  • Be careful not to get involved with fake reviews, it is strictly against our policy and damages not only your image but that of ours too as we provide the platform to post your educational ad We keep a regular check and balance on the reviews being submitted to us. To make sure the reviews are original we get in touch with students that provide reviews regularly. We may call the student and request any kind of solid evidence such as payment receipts of the course to validate a review. It is our aim and moral duty to provide our viewers with original and valuable reviews.
  • One issue that we have faced several times over time is people giving themselves reviews through other accounts; do not claim that you were not warned we have a zero tolerance policy towards such people you are at risk of being banned from our website. As is our mission to maintain a scam free website and provide our visitors with the fair and reliable service that they deserve.

How do we process reviews

Student reviews are highly valued by us and we believe that feedback is a great thing for any kind of service and plays a major role in the growth and betterment of an individual or company. Receiving a positive or negative review gives one the opportunity to reflect on their work and if needed make positive amends to their work. Reviews give you the opportunity to learn from your mistakes or about areas that need improvements and improve your work however at the same time reviews make you aware of your strengths helping you further enhance them. We have a few rules and guidelines regarding the submission of review, however, we do not have any harsh requirements as we believe a visitors review is based on their personal opinion and we respect and support freedom of speech. Our guidelines require that the reviews provided to us are polite and respect objective communication. If you have any concerns about the review provided to us or disagree with anything mentioned in the review you may get in touch with the student who has provided the review to discuss the issue and if possible make your desired changes to it. Do not hesitate to get in touch with us if there is any need for a moderator in case there is hate speech or insults from the students end we are happy and always available to facilitate our users. We prefer not to intervene in the process of reviewing as the matter is in between you and the student however as we mentioned above we have a zero tolerance policy against fake reviews if you suspect you have received a fake review or someone is trying to scam you make sure to get in touch with us and inform us about the situation so it can be dealt with promptly.

Why be verified

We believe being verified is a crucial step towards attaining the trust of your customers and thus a step forward to get to them. Being verified may seem like a tiring and useless process but in reality, it is a rather important step and plays an important role in decision making when it comes to safety and security as students would much rather avail the services of someone who is verified then someone who has not or chooses not to verify their identification. Even parents would not approve of their children getting help from anyone who is not verified no matter how good they are at the job. Once you are verified you are not seen with any kind of suspension and students tend to choose you over someone who has not validated their identity as no one wants to take any safety risks. We encourage user verification because we want to assure customer safety as these days safety is a delicate and very important issue which cannot be overseen and cyber crimes are on the rise. Getting yourself verified shows that you are a professional who shares our collective goal of providing the best possible service to our customers and that you are not capable of ant type of scam.
In order to be validated, you are required to purchase the package validation hereafter having paid for this service you will have to send us PDF or image(JPG or PG) of your National Identity Card (ID card) or a valid passport via email to the following address; info@gotoclass.ch. As soon as we receive the email containing a clearly visible picture of the document one of your representatives will call you, this is the confirmation process. After this has been done it will take approximately forty-eight hours (48h) for it to activate on your profile. The process is as you may have seen very simple but very important.
