PALO ALTO, CA (Press Release – September 13, 2011) – Mindflash today announced the launch of Mindflash Marketplace, a significant addition to its leading web platform for online training, which allows anyone to create and sell a course or presentation on the Web in minutes. Mindflash Marketplace is the first and only Web service to offer this breakthrough capability risk-free. Consultants, experts and professional trainers can create and launch courses and presentations for sale – for free. This creates a unique opportunity for millions of people looking to monetize their expertise and increase their income in the current stagnant global economy.
With 7 billion Google results for the search term “How To”, it is clear that there is a compelling market need for high-quality instructional content online. Using Mindflash Marketplace’s intuitive interface, anyone can create an online course for sale in minutes, for free.
Key features of the Mindflash Marketplace include:
Simple course creation: Anyone can easily create professional courses from the content they already have. Marketplace users can integrate video, PowerPoint and other documents, embed quizzes, attach handouts and offer certificates – all in a matter of minutes.
Risk free: Mindflash Marketplace charges no set-up or monthly fees. This means that Sellers can create their courses for free, eliminating any risk to getting started. Sellers are charged a small commission only when a course is sold.
Complete, turnkey system: Mindflash provides Sellers with automated reporting, billing and payment systems – eliminating the expense and hassle of merchant account creation, credit card fees, and program tracking that would otherwise be required.
Hundreds of Mindflash Marketplace private beta customers have already created courses for sale across topics like Customer Service Training and Life Skills Refresher Training.
“Every day I speak with small business owners looking to both share their expertise and learn new skills,” said Ramon Ray, Editor at SmallBizTechnology.com. “There is a huge existing need for a tool like Mindflash Marketplace to allow individuals with hard-won skills and knowledge to share those resources for a profit.”
“Communities like DIY Marketers exist because people are hungry for top-quality content and instructional information,” said Ivana Taylor, Publisher at DIYMarketers.com. “The Mindflash Marketplace will open up incredible income opportunities for industry experts looking to share their skills and knowledge on a larger scale. I know myself, and many of my readers, are excited to use this new platform and monetize our areas of expertise.”
“Now, more than ever, people are looking for ways to share their expertise, learn new skills, and earn added income,” said Mindflash CEO Donna Wells. “With over 14 million Americans out of work or underemployed, it is clear we need more tools that help skilled workers get back on their feet. Mindflash Marketplace will create new opportunities for individuals to monetize their knowledge, and ultimately, aid business innovation by improving training and skill transfer on a massive scale. I’m thrilled to move Mindflash well beyond our core offering of easy online training by creating the focal point for both sharing and monetizing content.”
