HOW [url removed, login to view] WORKS
1. Register and Login – Users sign-up by entering their Name, E-mail, Username and Password to register an account. Users link their LessonBaby accounts with Paypal accounts to receive payments and purchase content.
2. Create a Profile – Users create Profiles with their Timezone, Photos, Bio, Links, etc. They would enter the information you see on a standard SNS website like Facebook or Myspace.
3. Upload Videos, Audio, and Sheet Music for Sale – Users enter pricing data for videos, audio, and sheet music using an online form. They can upload or send physical media (CD or DVD) with videos to our office. We review the content for functionality, manually convert them into mp4, mp3, and PDF files, and upload them to our server.
When a Student purchases a video, they receive an e-mail with a download link. The Teacher receives an e-mail saying their video has been purchased. The site retains 10% of all video sales. If a video sells for $10, the Student pays $11 and the Teacher is paid $9. All transactions are conducted via Paypal.
4. Create a Schedule – Teachers enter a schedule for when they are available to teach, and what skills they can teach. Students can search for teachers by skill or available time. To reduce confusion, times are converted to the viewer’s time zone. Teachers state whether they need to be pre-paid or if they will accept payment after the lessons.
5. Book Lessons – After finding a suitable Teacher, Students send in a request for a specific time. Teachers receive an e-mail notification and confirm the request.
6. Conduct Lessons – Teachers receive notification e-mails with the Student name, the Student’s Skype ID, and the time and date of the lesson whenever someone purchases a lesson. Students receive e-mail confirmation saying their payment is complete. Teachers and Students conduct lessons on Skype.
