BIG Updates for NextLevelChessCoaching.com!
As some of you may know, I run the website NextLevelChessCoaching.com which I have mainly used up to now to advertise my 1-on-1 chess coaching lessons. I have some of the most affordable prices for online chess coaching and I teach all of my students using the Chess.com analysis board in "Live Chess" (which is very convenient for anyone reading this blog on Chess.com ). I have many consistent students who have been able to improve their play a lot during their coaching sessions with me and have left many good reviews about the coaching.
Recently though, I have been re-working and preparing the website in order to start doing a LOT more things. I am going to begin offering much more training tools through the use of the website (combined with Chess.com). I have pages for different types of videos: live game commentaries, training/coaching videos on specific subjects, livestream recordings. At the moment the pages are blank because I haven't created/uploaded any videos yet. But that is going to change very soon! I also plan on making weekly events including, but not limited to: a weekly NLCC show (1-hour weekly livestream show that will cover many different topics; I'll answer questions from the viewers, maybe interview a different player each week, teach about a specific subject, etc), a weekly simul (each participant gets a recorded video of myself playing the full simul with brief commentary/thinking on each game + a separate PGN analysis of their personal game against me; anyone who wins/draws their game will get $5 off a 1-on-1 lesson with me!), and a weekly game analysis session (I will analyze 3 player-submitted games during the show which can be viewed by anyone who wants to view the session). I also have a lot of other plans for the website!
Here's a breakdown of my plans for NextLevelChessCoaching.com to start during September:
- Write an article for Chess.com every Friday
- Write a blog post with a training/coaching video based on the recent article every Sunday
- More random, unscheduled blog posts
- More livestreaming! (no weekly schedule yet, but a lot more random blitz/bullet/bughouse game commentaries whenever I'm online playing!)
- Uploading recorded sessions from my livestreams to my YouTube channel
- Weekly events:
--Game analysis session
- Monthly email newsletter (featuring recent articles, new videos, upcoming weekly events, analysis of the best game from a recent game analysis session or simul, etc.)
So once I get rolling with all of these updates to the website, then there will be even more tools for you guys to use to improve your games! Summarized, these include:
- 1-on-1 coaching (some of the cheapest coaching prices online!)
- Training videos
- Game commentary videos
- Weekly events
- Livestream (get a glimpse into the mind of a FIDE Master as I climb the ladder in bullet/blitz on Chess.com!)
There will also be extra benefits for current students who take coaching from myself:
- Referral program (I pay $5 per person that you refer who takes 1 trial lesson)
- Discounts on training videos
- Discounts on weekly events
For the month of September, since I am really trying to find out what you (the wonderful users of Chess.com!) are interested in, ALL new content will be come at NO COST. All training videos I upload this month? FREE. All weekly events this month? FREE. Articles, blog posts and random livestreams will always be free to read and watch
I also have a Chess.com group you can join in order to keep up-to-date with the website. I will post all of the updates in that group. So anyone who is a member will be able to see all of the new content and improve their game before anyone else
If you have any suggestions or criticism for the website, I am happy to listen! I'd also be curious to know between the 3 types of weekly events listed above, which one sounds most interesting to you? Send me a message or comment below and I'll be sure to read all feedback
Thanks for your time!
