Masterclass: The Breakdown
How much does it cost?
Masterclass is available as a yearly membership for $180. You don’t pay per class. Rather, you pay one fee and have access to the entire roster of experts to take classes at your own pace.
Is there a monthly membership for masterclass?
What are the pros of masterclass?
You’re truly getting access to those who have DONE the work. Aka the women and men behind million and billion-dollar empires. I like to think of the masterclass lessons as the things you would ask someone if you had the opportunity to take the CEO of Disney to coffee and get his advice on business. The big questions you’d want to be answered or the things that take years to learn in certain positions are covered in these classes.
They are also very well broken up. So even if you only had 10-15 minutes of time per day, you would learn something amazing. Plus, there’s pretty much something for everyone on the platform. It’s a great way to find mentorship in a more affordable/accessible way.
There’s also a strong sense of credibility with everyone teaching on masterclass vs skillshare. There is no self-submission with Masterclass. It’s packed with people who are incredibly well known and have proved that they’ve done the work. It’s a lot easier to trust who you’re learning from while also not having to vet or waste time on someone who might be teaching outdated techniques.
What are the cons?
Unlike skillshare where you see reviews or can give feedback, Masterclass is more of a tv program style. It’s there. You watch and enjoy. But if you want to discuss it, you’ll need to go to a social media platform.
Additionally, there’s also no trial period for Masterclass unless you are able to get a 7-day pass from a member.
Who would benefit from a masterclass subscription?
Honestly, everyone. I saw a lot of people mentioning Masterclass as a gift option around Christmas last year. And I think it’s an amazing choice. I genuinely can’t think of a single friend who wouldn’t learn something from everyone teaching on the platform.
Is masterclass worth the money?
