Is the Skillshare offer a good deal?
Sometimes deals that look great aren’t.
Prices are hiked ahead of time to trick you into thinking you’re getting a good deal when you’re not.
This is not the case with Skillshare. The premium plan cost of Skillshare has not been increased since it became a subscription based platform.
Rare Skillshare deal
Aside from being good value for money, Skillshare deals are quite rare.
If you’re looking for a better one to come along, you may not find one. And you’ll also likely be waiting a really long time!

There are just 2 simple steps to getting your Skillshare Offer.

Here’s what a few Skillshare users had to say about it:
“Yes [Skillshare is worth it]! I've been a premium member for over 3 years. Honestly, I could be learning more. Sometimes I go months without taking a class, but I still feel I get plenty of value. It's nice to know I can dive into any skill I want in just a second, and not worry about paying anything extra to get all the content I can digest.” ~ comment from Reddit
“I am using Skillshare for the last one year and I can say this by confidence. Skillshare is surely worth of money.” ~ comment from Reddit
Example classes that are available on Skillshare
There are countless great options on Skillshare and they’re adding new classes all the time.
But here are our top 5 most popular Skillshare classes of 2022.
- Digital Illustration: Learn to Use Procreate by Jarom Vogel (159,000+ students)
- Graphic Design Basics: Core Principles for Visual Design by Ellen Lupton and Jennifer Cole Phillips (143,000+ students)
- iPhone Photography: How to Take Pro Photos On Your iPhone by Dale McManus (135,000+ students)
- Mastering Productivity: Create a Custom System that Works by Thomas Frank (122,000+ students)
- Fundamentals of DSLR Photography by Justin Bridges (110,000+ students)
Now, while all these classes are incredible, if they’re not in a topic you’re interested in, they may not excite you!
There are also many new classes that haven’t had the chance to rack up the numbers. For example, a class on Instagram reels in 2022 could be hyper-relevant to you right now, but by nature won’t have huge enrollment stats.

Advantages of Skillshare
Skillshare has made its name as a powerhouse in online learning, and for good reason.
Here are just some of the advantages of learning with Skillshare.
Huge number of lessons available (35,000+)
With over 35,000 different courses available on Skillshare, there is something for pretty much everyone. I tried to think of some obscure topics that I thought might not be covered, but everything had multiple results.
Paper airplane making? Check. Tarot? Check. Shoe making? Check.
It’s a real advantage to have such a world of learning at your fingertips and makes the subscription fee great value for money (even without the discount).
High quality teachers
Skillshare boasts some really top quality teachers. The most successful ones have years of experience in their field and are able to articulate their steps to get there.
When I searched through the top rated courses, a huge number of reviews had highlighted that the teacher was engaging and the instruction was really clear.
With so many classes on the platform, some are more abstract than others. That said, the majority of classes on Skillshare are tutorial-style classes with an objective and a chance to create something.
This differs from other platforms like MasterClass where the courses are more interview-style than step-by-step instructional.
If you want to learn how to do something, Skillshare is a great platform for honing your skills.
Most of the lessons are around 10 minutes long. This may seem short but the bite sized chunks mean you can stop when you need to and not have to clear a big block of time in your schedule to sit down and learn something.
It’s so easy just to log on and complete a lesson or two each day in digestible chunks that don’t take lots of commitment.
As a Skillshare member, you are encouraged to share your projects with the Skillshare community and this is a really fun way to get feedback on your own projects and be inspired by others.
Most teachers also have their ongoing projects highlighted on their page so you can check out what they’ve been up to.
You can also curate your own profile and follow others to keep you motivated on your learning journey.
As an annual Skillshare Premium member, you have access to Skillshare Perks. These include discounts for:
- Adobe Acrobat Pro, Premier Pro & Creative Cloud
- Society 6
If you were to make use of all the discounts available, they could save your more than the cost of a Skillshare membership itself.
The 30% discount offer is a great deal.
- Skillshare’ stable pricing means that it’s a real deal not an inflated scam
- Skillshare is an amazing platform for casual learning that’s fun and world-class
In fact, I actually first signed up to Skillshare with a rare buy one, gift one deal and I have no regrets. Definitely one of the best purchases I’ve made!
So what are you waiting for?
