If you're starting out, if you're an independent teacher or a small business, the simplest, fastest, best way to get started is by creating a website (like Wix) and using the LearnCube virtual classroom.
You might be about to say, "but I want a software that can do everything from taking payments to scheduling to providing a virtual classroom?"
No problem. We can support you with this in the future once to customers that have built the foundations of their business but the technology can be a distraction in the beginning.
The biggest challenge for startup language entrepreneurs is to find a proven, reliable approach to attracting new students every month. Relying on google ads and facebook ads is actually much harder and more expensive than you think.
However, you may have other cheaper and more reliable ways to do this (i.e. partnerships, networks in your niche, an already established audience, etc). It just takes a little while to get this right.
