You don’t have to be a teacher to teach other people the things that you know. You don’t have to be a parent to help other people grow and gain knowledge. You don’t even have to be someone’s boss to be their mentor and help them learn to be a better person or a better employee.
You can transfer your knowledge to other people simply by sharing it, and you can do that sharing from anywhere with today’s technology. You can share knowledge through your smartphone while you’re riding in the car, through your tablet or laptop while you sit at the bar, or even through your desktop computer from the comfort of your own living room.
Start A Blog
A blog is an excellent way to share your knowledge on any subject or topic. People love to read blogs, it’s like reading a book written by someone that has been through the things you have or is giving you the advice that you’ve been looking for. Give your blog a focus, like writing daily or weekly posts about living as a freelance writer or learning how to be a professional chef. You’ll attract more people that want to learn from you if your blog has a focus.
Write An eBook
You could turn your blog into an eBook, or write a book (or a few of them) instead of blogging. Not everyone is into blogging, so going into writing a book may be the better option for you. You don’t have to make it strictly an online thing, but since this article is meant to help you share your knowledge through tech and the internet an eBook is the most valid option.
Use Social Media
You could start a page or a group on Facebook where people could learn from you. You could also consider doing videos on YouTube that will help teach people about the things that you know. It’s a great option if you’re tech savvy and will let people actually see what you want to show them.
Start An Email Newsletter
You could share your knowledge through a newsletter. This can also be used to point people to your blog, social media, YouTube channel, or to promote your eBook(s). You’ll be sending your monthly (or weekly) newsletter to people that have signed up for it (somewhere) so you’ll know they are reading it and you’ll know you are helping them learn something new.
Use Text Messaging
MMS texting is something that is being used for more and more things these days. From coupons to newsletters, you can text almost anything. Text tidbits of knowledge to the people that want to learn from you, and include a link to somewhere that they can continue their learning.
