This article gives Teachers all the information necessary to post a successful Ad on this website.
Using the Website as a Teacher
Teachers can use EduLanka.info website in 2 ways:
You can post your Ads to promote your classes so that Students will contact you (only a premium feature).
You can use the website to find classes through browsing the Ads posted by Students (100% free feature).
In both cases, you need to have a profile on the website. Please make your profile by following the instructions given in this article.
As a teacher, the type of Ads you would post are of the type “Class Provided“.
You can promote classes related to O/L and A/L subjects on this website.
You can only post your Ads on EduLanka.info website by purchasing a Standard Ad Package. There are 3 different Packages and you can find their details here.
If you try to post an Ad in Classes Provided categories without buying an Ad Package first then the following error will be shown to you:
Once posted, your Ads will never expire on the website.
As soon as you make your free account you can browse the entire website and view all the Ads published. You do not need to buy a package to see Ads posted by Students or other Teachers.
When you publish an Ad, it will be displayed on different areas of the website; home page, search pages and the dedicated Ad page.
The text of the Ad in the dedicated Ad page will look like below:
Featured Ads vs Simple Ads
If you set your Ad as a Featured Ad, it will get highlighted and receive special attention of Students in multiple places. What is a Featured Ad?
Simple Ads are all Ads which are not Featured Ads.
A Featured Ad will have a pre-defined duration with “featured” status. When it expires, the Featured Ad automatically converts to a Simple Ad.
A Simple Ad will never expire.
You can also reestablish the featured status to an expired Featured Ad simply by editing it.
Your active Featured Ads and Simple Ads can be found under My Ads in your Dashboard.
When other Teachers post Ads, your Simple Ad (not set as a Featured Ad) will move down in the All Ads list.
You may Bump-it-Up to push it to the top of the list. What is a Bump Up Ad?
Depending on the Ad Package you buy, the number of Ads you can post at a time varies. To post new Ads, you need to buy a Standard Pack. (Not a Booster Pack, which are for only promoting already posted Ads.)
Read more about the different packages available here.
Each Ad you post can be reviewed by your students. Their Genuine reviews will help you gain more credibility on the website.
So make sure to ask your students to login and leave a review about their experience of learning from you on your Ads. These reviews will be visible underneath your Ad in the Single Ad View page.
You and all other users of the website can also react to the reviews you receive.
As a Teacher, it is also important for you to have a complete profile with a Profile Photo.
It will greatly improve your chances of students contacting you, since they can trust your profile. Read this article to know how you can update your profile.
