Fizzle is where creators and entrepreneurs come to learn, share and make progress toward earning a living doing something they love.
Fizzle instructors are creators themselves who have become experts in the subjects they teach. Some instructors are well-known success stories, others are talented up-and-comers with something important to share with other entrepreneurs.
Teaching at Fizzle is by invitation only, but we accept proposals. If you’re a creator who loves learning and sharing, and you think you have something to teach other creators, we would love to hear from you.
If you’d like to apply, please read the details below, then submit your proposal.
Offering a course through Fizzle gives you exposure to thousands of independent creators. If you already teach courses on entrepreneurship, Fizzle is a way for you to reach a broader audience.
If you don’t teach anywhere on entrepreneurship topics yet, Fizzle is a great place to get started, and you’ll gain some credibility just by being included in our impressive roster of other instructors.
In addition to the exposure, we also offer several other benefits:
Currently, we are looking for more technical / how-to content, as opposed to foundational content. For example, we’d love to feature more courses that dive deep into specific platforms and technologies to show how creators can use them to grow an audience, work smarter, build better products and get paid.
Here’s an incomplete list of platforms and technologies we would consider courses on, just to name a handful: Notion, Roam Research, JAMStack, Netlify, Gumroad, Fathom Analytics, ConvertKit, Substack, TailwindCSS, Stripe, Memberful, Podia, Patreon, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram…
After you submit a proposal, we may have some questions for you.
The next steps will be for you to submit 1) an outline for your potential course, and 2) a screen test of you recording 30-seconds of material in the style you intend to use for your course. This is to make sure your on-screen presence will be a fit for Fizzle before you commit to creating a full course.
After we give you the green light, you’re free to work at your pace. We’ll be there along the way to answer questions or review anything you want to share. Seriously, don’t feel alone, we’re here to help.
Does my course need to follow any particular format or look a certain way?
Not at all!
How are instructor payments calculated?
After each month, we add up your total video plays + watch minutes and divide that by the total video plays + watch minutes across all Fizzle videos. This is then multiplied by the royalty pool for the month (based on subscriber payments) to arrive at your amount due.
Can my course be available or sold anywhere else? Does it have to be exclusive to Fizzle?
You’re free to sell your course on your own or through any other platform. All we require is that you don’t offer your course for free anywhere to the general public.
