  1. I am a professional pest control specialist. I want to make money by taking classes for freshers and train people with some knowledge in this field for a fee. Can you help me?

    • I have to say, Bashyam, that I don’t have much experience in this area. Of the courses I offer and have researched, I would say that if you joined Wealthy Affiliate you could learn how to build a website, put up articles to show you are a pro, and learn how to get traffic to your site where you would also be offering your course. The community there is very helpful and there may be someone who would know how to best achieve your aim.

      Saying that much, I don’t know that Wealthy Affiliate is the best match for you. A platform like Udemy allows you to develop and sell courses from their site. There are probably other sites like that as well.

      I wish I could provide you with more concrete information, but this is all I know.

      Have a great week ahead!
