Experienced Players needed! Earn Extra Cash teaching online!
Date: July 15, 2008 07:39AM
Hi everyone!

Just wanted to introduce myself. I am Kirsty and I thought you would be interested in a new great website!

It is yoorgooroo.com. It ‘promises to revolutionise online sports teaching’ and it is a great concept

1. users video their snooker technique problem and upload it

2. they browse yoorGooRoo.com's selection of GooRoos and choose one on the basis of experience, language, user rating and price

3. the GooRoo analyses the problem and uploads a personalised video solution

4. the user downloads the solution to their technique problem

5. the GooRoo is paid by yoorGooRoo.com

I really think it is going to work as people are now familiar with the process of making a video and uploading it to a web site

There is a huge untapped market for personal sports tuition from experts, (DVD's, specialist magazines, books or existing "HowTo" websites are NOT "one to one")

Also many professionals are familiar with new technology such as video making and editing

It is pre launch but recruiting now. Great way to earn extra cash or improve your snooker.

They ask that if you want to be a GooRoo you need to understand your sport inside out, be able to teach and have some basic ability to edit a movie using one of the video editing packages available, consumer or professional

Oh and they are also running a draw to win an HD video camera if you sign up!

I had considered this option before, but haven't bothered with it, purely because in cuesports, about 90/95% of players are either self tauight and/or aren't sure if they are qualified enough as an athlete to consider this option.

On top of that, there aren't too many players that have the space or finances to have their own pool table at home to practice on, and so, this is another factor to consider.

I wish anyone the best of luck that is willing to give this a try as it may well work for them, but realisticly it's not a feesable option for most players, as it would be for others who are lucky enough to have their own tables and/or facillities, etc smiling smiley

JMHO
