Getting started with The Next Big Creator Competition is easy. The competition officially runs from April 1 to September 30, 2022. But, the sooner you get started, the sooner you can start earning. Here’s how you can get started competing today.

Step 1: Register for the competition

Once you register, you’ll be prompted to take a quick survey. This will help us know which track you’ll compete in. Because we know not everyone is starting at the same place, we’re breaking the competition up into tracks. You compete against others in your designated track for one of the three runner-up prizes. The grand prize is awarded to the winner across all tracks. (We’ll dive into this more below.)

Step 2: Join any Teachable plan

Select any Teachable plan to compete. If you’re already a Teachable customer, you’ll still need to register and fill out the competition form.

Step 3: Check your email and dive in

Look to your inbox for an email letting you know you’re registered to compete. This email will also have a link to your Participant Hub and all the resources you’ll need to get started.

Step 4: Grow together

We said we won’t leave you hanging. Not only is the Participant Hub available to you with helpful resources and links, but as a competitor, you’ll get recurring emails with strategies, tips, and tricks to help you succeed with ease. And, if you’re on a paid Teachable plan, you’ll score access to Teachable Kickstart Program complete with live Q&As, training material, demos, and more.

Step 5: Build and sell

Here’s the fun part! Over the six-month competition, you’ll build and sell your course and watch the money come in. The winner of the competition will be the person with the single-month highest earnings between April 1 and September 30, 2022.

Evening the playing field

When we say anyone can compete to win, we mean anyone. Whether you have no followers yet or 500,000—there’s a place for you in this competition. You’ll compete against others in your designated track for one of the three runner-up prizes. The grand prize is awarded to the winner across all tracks.

The tracks will be:

  • Kickoff: You’re just starting out.
  • Validate: For those who’ve created and shared some level of content.
  • Rising: For those who’ve made sales, whether in online courses or through other content.
  • Verified: You’re already a standout and you’re here to prove it.
