What is Pifi?

PiFi is a place to buy and sell knowledge, experience and skills from anyone to anyone.

Put simply, PiFi is to coaching and tutoring what AirBnb is to rentals and Uber to car services.

1. You can list your skills and sell units of time for any price you want:

  • 10 minutes (this is for regular quick questions and follow ups)
  • 30 minutes
  • 1 hour

The coaching or tutoring is done remotely; the user buying a time slot from you will receive a booking code that you can use to track your clients and tutoring jobs. You can then connect with your favourite means of communication (e.g. telephone, Skype, etc) and provide the required tutoring.

This gives you a way to create a unique relationship with your audience and share your skills and experience. The better you become at coaching, the more opportunities you will have to make some tutoring money.


2. You can upload videos, images and files in a Folder and sell access to that Folder.

With PiFi you can create an unlimited number of protected Folders with unlimited storage space for your coaching/teaching videos, images, files in general and links to other websites.

This is the perfect way to have a scalable approach to coaching. People can decide to buy time slots to talk to you or to buy your pre-packaged Folders of content and information.

Example of a Folder: If you are into food, you can make a Folder containing a video recipe, a pdf with the written recipe and the web links to where the ingredients can be found.


3. You can sell pre-packaged Courses inclusive of your live calls plus Folders.

This is great if you have a specific Course where you provide the live tutoring via a Skype call (for example) and the documentation, videos, etc that your students can use offline.

Example of a Course: If you are great at making sauerkraut, you can create a Course inclusive of:

  • Video call to guide your student through the process
  • Folder with learning materials
  • Follow up call

4. You can sell your Services to the world.

This option is perfect if you sell custom services to individuals and businesses.

Example 1 of a Service: If you are an IT consultant, you can sell a service to:

  • Assess a business IT assets
  • Provide a Cloud Computing costs analysis against physical servers
  • Write a comprehensive report

Example 2 of a Service: Sales Coaching

  • Teach an offline sales course to a sales team
  • Provide teaching materials through PiFi Folders
  • Provide follow up video trainings
