Hi PH team,
Sort and sweet post
A lot of people are looking for ways to make some side income, this is one simple way. It takes more time than anything which is good because most of the time people have extra time but no capital to start a business.
This is a super low capital idea again just takes time.
Make a helpful learning video!
Now finished reading this because I know a lot of people might have already lost interest.
I’m not talking about some 10-hour long course you need to record and edit and then hope people pay for it.
Learn a skill! or share a skill you already have! that means reading 3 books, that’s it 3 books on the topic. You will know more than 90% of people on the topic. Don’t believe that is advice from Tim Farris. Examples, copywriting, interviewing, resume writing, using a free or cheap service better like turbo tax basic or Wix, etc.
Teach people something they don’t know that will ACTUALLY help them. Then sign up on any number of sites including
- Khan Academy:
Then after you the make the video, post it in FB groups or communities like this one here. Telling people what it is and how much it costs. Say something like, This $10 course will save you $150 on your taxes every year. (Someone will sign up because that means they just spent $10 to learn how to save $150)
Don’t chare a lot of money. $10 - $20 for an hour course that will actually help someone. that’s it. You may not make $100k but you could really easily make $500+
Tools you will need: Laptop, camera or phone, 3 books, 5 hours of time to make it and 5 hours of sharing it online. (not including reading time)
If you get good enough at talking through your process you may not even need to edit your video. It’s ok if it’s not that professional. Be upfront about that in the first 1 minute of your video but talk about the value you will give them.
Good luck and please comment if you are doing this or are going to try it!
