3. DONORS CHOOSE

Have you heard about DonorsChoose?  This organization is a platform for educators to post projects that support learning in the classroom.  I have had 7 projects funded – field trip, headphones, wireless printers and ink, 3D printer, STEM materials, and art supplies.  Preparing a project is quick and easy.

Once your project is posted, you’ll want to share this information with your community (face to face and online) for funding support.  However, there are thousands of companies and people across the United States that regularly check in to DonorsChoose to place a donation.  It is very exciting to see your project funded AND the learning resources placed in the hands of your students.

Interested in posting a project?  Go to DonorsChoose with this “teacher referral” link.  When you post your project, I will receive $25 towards my own project from DonorsChoose.  Thank YOU!!  Once you have your project funded, you can also participate in the Teacher Referral program.  If you have any questions about getting started, just contact me.  I’m happy to help out!!  ~ Annette

4. BLOGGING BLASTOFF COURSE

Whether you are an educator looking to have a place to share your ideas with others, interested in monetizing your ideas in a special niche (education, food, travel, fitness, sports, etc.) with an online business, or looking for a place to write your thoughts and save this for a project, taking the time to publish your work via a blog is an effective way to get your inspirational thoughts out to the world.

Are you not sure where to begin?  This is exactly where I was this summer.  I knew that I always had teachers contact me with questions about integrating technology into the classroom, looking for some strategies for classroom management, wondering how to reach certain kiddos instructionally, etc.  I figured the best thing to do is place my experiences in one place for all educators to use.  I didn’t know where to start, until I came upon the 5 Day Start a Money Making Crash Course.  This course is FREE and allowed me to get started without feeling like I was walking blindfolded.  I learned the ins and outs of setting up a blog without being overwhelmed.

A few weeks later, I decided to enroll in the Online Blogging Course.  This course was AMAZING!!!  It was well worth the money to get a close up view, the nitty-gritty if you will, about blogging and monetizing my work. Besides the course itself, I was excited to be part of a virtual community of other bloggers learning and working together. If you are already blogging, I’m certain you will find this course valuable AND if you don’t, Heather and Pete will refund your course fee with their 30 day money back guarantee!  Universities don’t even off that guarantee!!  It’s certainly a win-win!

5. APPSUMO: SHORTPIXEL IMAGE OPTIMIZER

This plugin will COMPRESS (not reduce) your images, so they take up less space on your site. This allows your site to run faster, have better SEO, make the end user a happier person so he/she doesn’t get frustrated with a sloooow loading site, and make more profits. I am very excited to have this plugin on my site and experience GREAT results!!!

If you have any questions, I’m happy to help you out, too!  I’m quite passionate about entrepreneurship and using technology to benefit everyone – whether learning or earning an income.  ~ Annette
