List Your Chinese Learning Material on WCC Dictionary & Start Earning Extra Income!
Our team at Written Chinese is excited to announce a new program for Chinese teaching institutions, tutors, exchanges, and anyone helping to enrich, educate and spread the Chinese language around the world. We call it the WCC Dictionary Content Marketplace Program and it the first of its kind – monetize your content with our mobile application and user base!
Who Is This Program For?
This is meant for a few different cases, let’s outline them below:
Chinese Language Program
Do you have a learning institution for students of Mandarin Chinese? You probably have learning programs, flash cards, stories, and other materials you offer your students. In what format do you give them to your students? Maybe by paper, or by excel and PDF? Or if you’re a bigger institution you may have your own CDs and books! All of this material can be used in our new program – so read on!
Are you a Chinese language teacher or tutor?
Do you currently tutor those trying to learn Chinese? Perhaps 1 on 1 and in person, or group calls on Skype? How do you decide which teaching materials to use with your students? Maybe you have some materials prepared, or maybe you tell your students to use some books or apps to share your learning experience with and have them follow along with you. You probably also expect them to do homework between tutoring sessions, and want to see their progress. If that’s the case, then this program is perfect for you, read on!
The WCC Dictionary Content Marketplace Program
This program is called the WCC Dictionary Content Marketplace Program – what does that mean? You may be familiar with our WCC Dictionary, that allows students of Chinese to learn Chinese on the go. This is done by looking up words or characters in our mobile dictionary and saving some as flash cards in a quicklist. We had a lot of feedback that suggest our dictionary users wanted more study materials such as downloadable flashcard kits, and that they are willing to pay for them.
Creating a Win-Win-Win Synergy With The Chinese Teaching Community
So, after a team brainstorming session, we decided that it would be a great opportunity to open up our mobile app and allow teachers to upload their teaching materials and resell them to our users. Our users were asking for this kind of content, and our app was gaining traction as a dictionary and flash card system. So we decided to open it up for teachers to share their materials and get compensated at the same time.
Create A Content Provider Business Account With Us
This program is still in the early stages, and in order to create what we have titled a “content provider business account” with us, you need to contact us and introduce yourself and your program in the email. We will then send you a formal proposal and contract for you to sign. Once both parties are comfortable, you will submit your content to us for listing in the mobile app.
Here’s An Example Of How It Will Look
Curious to see how it will work in action? We have worked with a few teachers in an alpha test and here are some screenshots from the mobile app with their content listed:
By clicking either in the “Chinese Stories” Section or in the “Flash Card Sets” Section, you will see the listing of various content that the user can add to their account. We list the author and the price (that you define) and the user can choose to buy this content as an “in-app purchase” on their account. This will then be billed on their Android or Apple iTunes account and we will be paid as the app provider in the app network. Once the funds settle, we will have a profit share agreement agreement with you and make payments monthly.
Because this is still in the early stages, we will not have real time login with reports, we will send you regular reports or if you email us and request them we will run a report for you. As this is a new program, your feedback and input will be weighed heavily for the future development of this platform.
Benefits Of Being A WCC Dictionary Content Provider
What are some of the benefits of taking part in this program? We feel there are quite a few, so let’s take a look at them one by one.
Extra Exposure For Your Chinese Learning Program And Brand
By listing your content in our mobile app, you will immediately get extra exposure to your learning program and your brand. Design your own cover art, get eyeballs on your program and users buying your content! You can impress our users with your content and get them to contact you and your business for further tutoring, program details and information.
We will be launching this in a more formal way on our established Facebook page of over 170,000 fans, and constantly mention it in our website and marketing materials. Get in on this opportunity soon so you can be an early member to maximize the promotion effect.
Gain An Additional Stream of Revenue For Your Business
You have these materials created already – why not put them in our app for an additional sales channel for you and your business? You can still have your normal tutoring business, and then tell your students to buy the materials in the app so you can add to your bottom line. But not only your current students, but our users will find this material and buy it – creating new revenue that you didn’t have before.
We understand how hard it can be for Chinese teachers and tutors, so want to provide more ways to earn money and support this amazing career.
Grow Your Brand Image and Expertise
By partnering with the Written Chinese team, we have your back! We want you to succeed and will be promoting you and your business in our mobile app and marketing materials. Grow your image as a Chinese teaching expert and take your business to the next level. We will regularly interview and spotlight trending teachers and programs who are listed in our platform and want to both boost downloads of your content as well as your expertise. Grow with us!
Proudly Display Your Written Chinese Badge On Your Website
Once you are a content provider in our network, you are our official partner. We will give you a badge that you can display on your website, Facebook, Weibo, or other social media to promote this new content and listing. This will help build trust in the marketplace and set you apart from the new teachers and tutors as they come to the market.
We will also list you on our WCC partner page so that the students and potential students can verify this before signing up for your program. Trust is important in any business and we are sure this will strengthen the trust relationship between you and your students.
Current Case Study – Domino Chinese
We did an alpha run with Felix from Domino Chinese and he has had a blast with it! He has a lot of flash cards and stories in his online training program, and was directing his students to pay for another dictionary to use his materials – without any way to give a discount to his students for this program! He was upset he couldn’t do something for his students, but now is able to direct them to his WCC Dictionary, and offer his materials at 25% of the price of the other app and also now able to earn a commission on top of it
Let’s see a quick video of Felix and his excitement for this new program and opportunity.

We have paid him monthly for his sales and he is able to help his students save a lot of money at the same time. Like we said earlier, this creates a win-win-win opportunity – the student saves money, the teacher makes money, and we have happy users on the dictionary.
How The Program Works
Once you apply and are accepted to be a content provider, you submit your content. There are three kinds of content we currently work with in the WCC Dictionary mobile app, described below.
Chinese learning stories are fun ways for students to practice their Chinese. This needs to be in four ways – 1) English, 2) Chinese Characters, 3) Chinese Pinyin, and 4) Images / artwork to go along with the story. Though you may not have or think artwork is necessary – we believe it helps the learner strengthen their learning experience. If you need help with any or all of these parts, please discuss with your account representative when establishing your account with us.
This is the cornerstone of Chinese learning, or any language learning. Here you break up sets of flash cards into learn-able “Chunks” that are themed around your lesson plan. You can have all of them in one set, but we advise to break them up into stages of learning and difficulty, as well as themes for the student. Currently we do not have a limit of the amount of flash card sets you can list. The price is up to you, but we will show the student how many flash cards are in the set before they purchase so keep that in mind.
We are working on more ways for you to upload your content for sale in WCC dictionary mobile app. We would love to hear the kinds of content you would like to list.
Interested? Want to Sign Up? Here’s The Next Steps
So I hope this got you excited and you are foaming at the bit to signup! The next step is to contact the Written Chinese team and tell us you’re interested in the program. A short email to start is fine, and then we’ll send you back our terms of service and contract for you to review and sign.
After that you’ll be assigned and account representative who will help you get your content listed and live. It takes at least 1 week for the content to be shown in the app, as we need to do an update in the mobile app marketplace stores, so please keep that in mind in your scheduling.
