3 Things You MUST Have If You Want A Successful Side Gig Online!
Are you looking to start a new business, or get better results from the one you’re in right now? When you implement these 3 things covered in this post, you will definitely find yourself with a successful side gig that pays you well!
It’s interesting because just a few years ago, “Side Gigs” were few and far between. If you had another opportunity to earn extra money that wasn’t a normal job, you were seen as random and somewhat weird…
Yet these days, side gigs are EVERYWHERE! They’ve been popping up more and more, and you can find them in every industry possible.
We have the internet to really thank for this, because it’s given people a way to reach out to millions of viewers with the click of a button, and the possibilities from that have become endless.
And in some way we also have the economy to thank as well… Now that the 40/40/40 vision is completely outdated (work 40 hours a week, earn $40k a year, and retire in 40 years), and many people have lost their job security… people have HAD to resort to making money any way they can.
And that a GREAT thing for all of us!
Who would have thought that just a few years ago you could easily get paid to drive strangers around in your car, or go shopping for other people? But Uber paved the way, and since their idea of using your own means to earn income became a “thing”, many more of these side gigs have popped up to give people ways to earn extra income.
And while I do think that’s great because it gives people options that they didn’t have before, to me it’s still a job where you’re trading your time for money.
And I for one, am all about helping people earn income whether or not they are physically working!And the best way to do that is by creating an online business where you get to leverage the power of the internet! Click To Tweet
And it’s never been as easy as it is right now to have a successful side gig online!
So that being said, if you are brand new to starting an online business, or you’ve been trying to figure out how to make your online business work…
I want to take a moment to breakdown the 3 things you MUST have if you want to earn extra income without wasting your time or money!
#1 You Must Have Something To Sell
Now that might sound like “duh”! But I promise you, I’ve been coaching and consulting aspiring entrepreneurs for almost 9 years now, and it’s amazing how many people will come to me wanting help with their Facebook ads, or some other part of online marketing, and they don’t have a product that they’re promoting!
In order to have a successful side gig where you aren’t trading your time for money, you must earn commissions on a product (or service) that you sell. Now that doesn’t mean you have to create your product yourself, you can easily be an affiliate for someone else, and earn commissions when you refer someone else to purchase it.
In my experience, this is the easiest way for people to earn income quickly.
Yet there are many things to consider when choosing a product to promote, especially if you want to promote it online. We talk about what to look for, and what to stay away from, inside of our bonus training that you can get for free right here inside of our Successful Side Gig training.
#2 You Must Have Something That Will Sell It (That’s NOT You Doing The Selling!)
Now you may be the greatest salesman in the town, but if you really want to be successful, and create lifestyle freedom, that means you AREN’T the one doing the selling! (And personally I haven’t met that many people who really like to sell – including me!) It’s much easier to have a system working for you that does the selling. This way you’ll attract people want what you have without you having to sell anything, AND it’s a much more enjoyable experience for everyone involved!)
So if you’re interested in leveraging the internet, and earning commissions 24/7, that means you need a sales system to do the selling for you. And on the internet, that comes in the form of an online marketing funnel.
It’s not a website (people get this confused all the time), it’s literally a series of web pages with the sole purpose of taking a person down a specific path that will eventually end in a sale…
A marketing funnel starts out by giving away helpful information that will solve a specific problem. Once the viewer gets the information and are happy with it, they will want more (if you did a good job) and they end up taking the steps to buy your offer on the spot. Why? Well because it’s the next logical step to getting exactly what they need to solve the problem they have!
If you’re looking to create a successful side gig online, there’s no way to accomplish this without having a “Selling system” that works for you. So what does that look like for you? We give examples that will be helpful for you inside the bonus training you can get here!
And that leads us to the last thing you must have to have a successful side gig…
#3 You Must Have Someone To Sell It To!
Again, this is another “obviously” step… but I’ve seen people get stuck in step 2 for months & years! The goal is to get to step 3 as fast as you can because you can have the best product or service in the world, and you can have the best sales system created…
BUT if you don’t have anyone that sees it… well then… you don’t have a business!
No one will be buying your offer and you won’t make any money! So when you’re in step 3, you MUST have a marketing plan that will get qualified eyeballs to your system, so they can see your offer!
This 3rd step is the one that most people spend spinning their wheels. It’s the one that can cause frustration and overwhelm for many, because they aren’t following the correct marketing process. They’re putting out ads, or content that is “salesy” and not effective in getting people interested in learning more about their offer.
This step is all about marketing and advertising, and creating an effective marketing strategy that consists of both free and paid methods for the internet. And once you have that in place, along with your sales funnel from step 2, you’ll be generating leads and turning them into sales automatically every day of the week! (And THAT’S when these side gigs become REALLY FUN!)
So at the most basic level, if you want to have a successful side gig online, those are the 3 steps you must have so that you aren’t wasting your time or money getting the results you want.
Now, that being said, if you’re interested in learning more about any of these steps, so you can either start or improve your online business, I have something very special that will really help you accomplish this!
