Would it be worthwhile advertising one to one tuition for students on those courses ?

Posters on the notice boards with some of your excellent credentials might attract eager students looking for the best grades.

Just a thought Eddie.

Eddie, don't forget SOS provides a FREE space for anyone to advertise in... it's called Readers' Ads and in there is a category called SERVICES where some tutors post ads every now and then. There's a guy from Minnesota advertising in there currently:

https://www.soundonsound.com/readersads/services

It's free, so why not make use of it? Ads get deleted automagically after 30 days but you could easily keep a copy of your text and re-post it. Latest ads show on the main Readers' Ads page but also in their category page.

Ads are vetted and go into a queue... but I think you know who vets them so no problemo on that front. ;)

Submit your ad today here: https://www.soundonsound.com/readersads/free

It might bring in some punters, it might not, but it's free and on a regularly visited part of the site. What have you got to lose?

Thanks Ian. I'll give this a go today.

I tried contacting Bucks Uni for exactly this but they weren't having it.

I have had a flyer designed that I need dropped to various uni students union bars.

If that's pretty much the first (or only) thing people read in a small advert or hyperlink it might mislead people who just give it a cursory glance. I don't use or edit samples, so you just lost my interest & I won't investigate further.

Once you get to the site it's really clear & obvious what you're about, I just don't think the name really sells it for you. It's not a problem for people who know you & previous customers but I wonder whether it might be off-putting when it comes to generating new traffic.


A very valid observation Mike. I bought a bunch of domain names to use but it was finally decided that Samplecraze with its 20 year Google history was best as Google takes domain names with history more seriously than new ones that pop up everywhere.

The idea is to keep Samplecraze as is but to create a personal site with my tuition services being promoted. So far, it has all been a commercial disaster.
