FAQ for the sāge

How much does it cost to sign up to SĀGE?


It doesn’t cost a thing to sign up to SĀGE.




What are the benefits to teaching a SĀGE class?


Many people have tried what is called a Massive Open Online Class or a webinar with many people in attendance and didn’t get the targeted attention they wanted and instead were left with questions unanswered. At SĀGE, you have a small group experience with people who really want to learn, in a very targeted and personalized way, from all of YOUR years of experience. They believe that you have the knowledge. You can help advance their career, hobbies, and any other skill they want to learn – from YOU.




Where do classes take place?


Our classes take place online, using Zoom, a Video Communications platform so you can see and hear your sage and even share your screen. A unique Zoom link is generated once you book your class, and you can click on the link at the scheduled time and start your online class. Clicking on the link with launch Zoom and take you through the next steps but you don’t actually have to install Zoom as there is also a web browser version.




Are these group classes or one-on-one?


The idea of SĀGE is all about the personal connection. Therefore, our classes are 1 - 4 people - as personal and customized as it gets.




Who can sign up to become a Sāge?


Anyone over the age of the 60 – no matter where in the world they are based. We make some exceptions :) You can sign up for free by clicking here and SĀGE Customer Care will reach you out to you to schedule a call and discuss next steps.

How do payouts take place?


At the end of each month, we will send payments through Paypal. You will need an account for this, and we can walk you through setting it up if needed. You can easily link your PayPal account to your local bank account. We also offer the option of donating your earnings to a list of charities oriented towards community growth. Please contact us if you'd like us to add your local charity to our list.




What happens after I register?


The journey begins! You will receive an email with your sample profile page and your calendar availabilities, as well as a link to set up a phone call with a SĀGE onboarding agent. On this phone call, we will review your page together with you, and make any changes you want. Visit the Find a SĀGE section to see how others have set up their profile pages! In this call, we'll also make sure your lighting is good and review the structure of how one of your sessions would look like. And of course, if needed, we will help you set up Zoom, the Video Communications platform we use, so that you can see and hear your student and even share your screen. Also, we're always happy to hear your thoughts too - so this is a great time for any feedback, or any questions.




Do I get a reminder for this class?


Of course! Every sunday, you will get a reminder email for your set classes for the coming week. The email will include the name of the participant, what they hope to get out of this session (if they've specified) and a Zoom link for each class.




What if I’ve never used Zoom before?


No problem! At this point, we're experts in helping you get set up. We will schedule a call with you and take you through it all: from camera lighting to sound check, how to share your screen and how to record the class if you want to, and only if both parties have formally pre-agreed beforehand. What do you know? You signed up to teach your expertise and are learning something new too!




What can I share on SĀGE?


It’s up to you! If you’re feeling stuck, click here to set up a call with us and we can find something together. Everyone has some to teach that someone else wants to learn! Some of our most interesting sāges did not realize just how much they had to offer until we started this conversation!
