Odds are you know something that someone else is willing to pay to learn giving you the opportunity to make money selling your knowledge.
There are many ways to make money online with your knowledge including tutoring, creating information products or blogging. However, if you’d rather not go through all the time it takes to set up an information sales website and/or blog, and instead tap into a service that will host and process the payment of your knowledge, here are a few places you can try.

Most of the options below that let you sell your knowledge are free (they take a cut of the payment when you make a sale). Further, they’ll host your profile, process payments and assist in the delivery. Some programs allow you to instruct by email, while others set up telephone or video call time.
Note that most of these options for selling your knowledge are best for earning extra income, or gaining expertise to enhance your resume or home business.
