For those who are using Roll20 ... there is a GM Academy on the site, you might want to consider joining if you haven't already. Here's an example page in which I've put a blurb about my own offerings. You might want to do the same for yours. Or find out more about other offerings. Anyway, it's a resource you might find helpful.
