Earn While You Learn

August 12, 2011

By Carol Amato

If your situation is one where money is a pressing matter (it’s not always that way for some who just have an interest in working from home), then services are the fastest route to making money.

The premise of offering services is this:

Earn While You Learn

Others make enough to survive on and are trying to grow their business, but simply can’t without a bit of extra help to free up some of their time.  So you step in to alleviate their time management woes.

You’re going to either be doing things they don’t have time for – OR, taking over tasks they don’t know HOW to do (like some people can’t write).

I have some warnings for you with services that you need to heed:

They will feed off of your desperation – so keep it under wraps.  If you post a bid on a project or approach a prospective client BEGGING for work, they’ll get you to charge the very least amount possible, knowing you’ll take it.

You can’t be afraid to stand up for yourself just because they know more than you about the online marketplace.  For example – let’s say you get hired to ghostwrite (write original content) an eBook.

You write it, but before you get paid, the marketer tells you that he doesn’t want you to deliver it in Word or TXT but in HTML – so that his entire site is fully formatted for him and ready to upload.

This isn’t a ghostwriting gig – it’s writing paired with website creation!  Tell him either “No, I only deliver the content,” or, “Sure – but the website creation aspect will cost you an additional $____.”

The sad thing is, some shady marketers actually teach others how to rip off service providers, so stand firm.  It will NOT impact your earnings.

They ALL need their content (deliverables) yesterday.  Every marketer will try to rush you.  This is because most service providers are notoriously late.  So they feel like if they rush you, then maybe they’ll get their stuff on time.  Let them know a delivery date up front and if they can’t accept that, let them find someone else.

We’ll be looking at a few services that you can offer to fellow Internet marketers.  You could have a site offering just one service, or mix and match a few offers.  Check out oDesk.

If you want to, you can grow your own service business by bringing on a few other trusted service providers.  You take in the money and keep a small percentage and then pay them the remainder.

      Hi Cathy,

      Yes, I have bought a few gigs from Fiverr.com – love the speedwriting of my logo that I put in my Golden Nuggets Internet marketing Basics video, so cool!

      I also have used a site called Scriptlance….someone did my pic on a Polaroid background. I was very pleased with the work.

      Hope to help. :)

    Great post! Still thinking of what service I would provide…I’m new to all of this, but it would be great if I could figure out a service to get paid for. :) Good point on staying firm and standing up for yourself so you’re not short-changed. I will definitely consider this. Thanks!

    Sincerely,
    Heather

      Thanks Heather,

      You could do a great job writing, like Glenda!

      I am excited for some folks who thought there was no way to get started, now they know they can earn while they learn.
