I bet you are exquisite at something and that there are plenty of people out there who look up to you. Your expertise is your most valuable resource and you should take advantage of it to make more money.
Have no idea where to get started? Don’t worry. I’ve got you covered.
In this article, I’m going to give you some tips on how to leverage your expertise by turning it into cash.
Let’s get started.
Nowadays, blogs have almost taken the place of the morning news. Most people don’t turn their TV on anymore. Instead, they check their social media feeds or email inbox to read the news.
The easiest way for you to start the foundation is to create a blog and write on it constantly. At first, you have to provide a lot of value so that your readers would have a reason to come back and subscribe to your email list.
Write unique content, leverage your expertise so that your audience knows your blog is one of its kind. Then, as you’ll slowly increase your following, you can start monetizing your blog and earn some money.
Keep in mind before other people who don’t know you yet will consider you an expert, you’ll have to do some work for free.
Millions of people take courses online and I’m pretty sure this number will keep increasing every year. One of the main reasons is the fact online courses are so convenient and relatively cheap to traditional education. On top of that, some of the subjects taught online are not taught in schools.
As I said, after you have built up your following, you can start thinking about a topic for your course. In order for people to pay for it, the content has to be unique, incredibly valuable and you have to leverage your expertise much more than you did on the blog.
The blog should basically be a teaser of what’s to come. It should make your audience thirsty for more great content from you.
Why should you spend time writing on a blog first? Because it will give you a direction, you will receive feedback and so your online course will be exactly what your audience needs.
You don’t have to call yourself an expert. You have to let others acknowledge it.
Put your name out there and build a brand around it. Do guest blogging, interviews, podcasts, take part in discussions which are taking place in your area of expertise. Be active on social media – this is where most conversations happen nowadays.
Once people will start seeing more and more of you, they will inevitably think of you as an expert.
It’s a shame to waste your talent and your knowledge. Chances are there are so many people out there who require your expertise because they don’t have your skills yet. This is your chance to help them out.
