16. Make Money Online By Joining The Freelance Economy

Goodbye 9 to 5. Hello Freedom!

But don’t get too excited. Freelancers are serious self-employed workers. It takes discipline to work as a freelancer. You will need certain things in place, depending on which industry you freelance in. You will need the “tools of your trade”.

So a quiet “office” space, a laptop, and a good internet connection are a given for freelance writers. You may need studio space if you are a dancer, a choreographer, a yoga/fitness instructor, or an artist. Freelance photographers need reliable, quality equipment, the relevant software, and, at times, a darkroom. A chef needs an arsenal of pots, pans, spices, crockery, and cutlery, and depending on the nature of the contracts, reliable transport. Even freelance IT experts, designers, and developers will have their own “arsenal of “choice” weapons”.

Freelancing by its nature is volatile. How much work you get and what you earn is based largely on:

How much effort you put into marketing yourself.And how experienced you are.Which sector of the freelance industry you work in.How reliable you are.Your ability to keep learning and updating your skill set.

But whatever niche you freelance in, the fact is that freelancing is a growing industry. It already brings in $1T annually, makes up 35% of the US workforce, contributes 4.8% to the GDP, and is made up of 57 million freelancers. This information was calculated by Upwork and the Freelancers Union, with help from Endelman Intelligence.

Become a Freelance Writer

Freelance writing jobs can be anything from writing content to proofreading and editing. Be a ghostwriter and help people to get their works of fiction, or memoirs, out there. As a freelance writer, you could find yourself writing e-books, resumés, scripts, business proposals, and content for everything from blogs to brochures, to landing pages and websites, to ad campaigns and copy.

Many business people will hire writers to research, compose manuals and tutorials, or create copy for various content marketing strategies, like blogs and whitepapers.

Earning Potential: $24,000 – $115,000 per year.(If a writer earns $115,000 per year: – At $100 per hour this equates to 3 hours of writing a day! If you charge an average of $25 per hour, you’d need to write for 12 hours every day to earn this figure.) Some freelance trivia for you…you’re welcome.

Entry-level: $1-20 per hourIntermediate: $20-40 per hourProfessional: $40-80 per hourExpert: $80-100+ (Over 40% of expert writers earn more than $100 per hour.)

Become a Freelance Designer

Design is all around us from the cap on our toothpaste to the IKEA furniture you buy and build, to the cities and towns we live in, to the systems we use to create organizations. Design is such an intricate part of our lives, we often are not even aware of how deeply design is entrenched in our lives.

There is always available work for designers. And freelance design work is just as wide and varied as everyday design concepts are.

These are some of the job categories available to freelance designers:

AnimationMotion graphicsProduct designPhotographyBrand Identity and strategyArt & IllustrationUX/UI designFrontend designPhysical designVideo and Audio ProductionPresentationGraphic Web DesignAnd many more!

As with all freelance gigs, the pay varies substantially. As an entry-level designer you could make $15 per hour but if you specialize in UX/UI, pump that up to well over $45. Top designers can command $150 per hour for their work!

Earning Potential: $26,500 – $uncapped (or around $98,000)

The reason I wrote uncapped is because as a freelance designer you have the potential to make buckets of cash. It just depends on your experience, your pricing strategies, and the complexity of the contracts.

Solid TIP: If you know your work is good, charge per project and not per hour.

A friend of mine completed a website for his corporate client and charged $4,000, which is a realistic price. But it only took him 5 hours. Had he charged an hourly rate of $150…. It’s too sad to even finish this sentence! And if he had been working for a company….Let’s not go there either.

According to simplyhired.com, here’s what a designer can expect to earn annually with the following job titles:

Graphic Design intern – $25,300Graphic Designer – $38,350Senior Graphic Designer – $55,100Senior Designer – $83,300Art Director – $76,600Creative Director – $109,000Web Designer – $62,000Visual Designer – $77,000

Become a Freelance Consultant

Consultants are people, and companies, that advise individuals and businesses on how to implement strategies and find solutions. The applications for consultancy are vast and this type of freelance work is growing in popularity as more people from corporate backgrounds find themselves leaving the security of a traditional job for the far more fulfilling option of creating their own companies, or becoming freelancers.

Of course, this career would not exist online without the video conferencing and video integration software that now abounds. To become an online, or freelance, consultant is possible without prior experience but having experience in this field before you go solo will definitely have advantages. If you don’t have experience there are a slew of quality online consulting courses that will set you up to become a consultant.

A consultant consults. Your field of expertise will determine what type of consultant you become. You can consult with individuals who are looking to invest finances or start their own businesses. Consultants can advise large corporations on how to strategize, raise capital, grow their business, run campaigns, or keep up with emerging trends.

Consulting positions include:

Cryptocurrency consultantFinancial investment consultantCareer guidance consultantMarketing consultantsManagerial consultantsIT consultantGrantsmanshipEnvironmental Impact consultant

Earning Potential: $52,000 – $170,000 per annum.

At an average of $26 per hour, consulting fees can be as low as $15 and as high as $85 per hour. In order to find your price range, find out what your type of consulting would pay in a traditional consulting firm, and add on 30%. These stats come from glassdoor.com, indeed.com and monster.com.

Enjoy Flexible Work Hours Working Online within the Gig Economy

Stats show that Millenials and Gen Z value flexible hours over job security. As a result, we have what is called a gig economy. The gig economy is extremely diverse. Apps and smartphones have revolutionized part-time work. By using certain apps, customers and service providers connect.

There has been a huge emphasis placed on online work that can be done by almost anyone, but that doesn’t pay that well. And because I’ve covered these types of jobs in previous posts, I want to focus this post more on the online work that brings in serious money.

These sites offer legit gigs with decent earning potential, as well as low-paying part-time work. If you want to start making money online check out what these sites have to offer in terms of part-time work with flexible hours.

Educate and Create by Compiling Online Courses and Tutorials

This niche is rapidly expanding. Us humans have an unquenchable thirst for knowledge and the desire to be the best version of ourselves that we can be! If you have a passion for sharing what you know with others, the potential to create and market your own online courses has never been so accessible.

Have experience in a certain area but don’t have teaching experience? You can take a course on how to make a course! Creating online tutorials and courses involves more than putting learning materials and modules together. You will need to market your material. But how?

You could start a blog and market it yourself or you could hire a freelance marketing consultant, or an online marketing company, to help you. But you could also offer an affiliate program and get professional bloggers, that monetize their sites through affiliate marketing, to promote your stuff.

Take an online course on how to put together quality, informative, educational packages. If you can create courses filled with evergreen content and value for money, the sales may keep you in the pound seats for years to come!

Some of these sites teach people to create online courses while others offer software and hosting so that you can create your courses with them and sell through them.

Thinkific.com

Thinkific is a business that offers software that builds online courses.

Thinkific offers a free version that allows you to create 3 courses. The next level up costs $49 per month. You get email integration, drip content, an unlimited number of courses, custom domain, affiliate reports, and Zapier triggers (toolbox). You also have the option of manually downloading the courses.

Articulate.com

Articulate offers live and on-demand training, authoring apps, stock assets, a project review app, and more. Grasp design concepts and project management. You will learn to design courses for both PCs and mobile devices.

Articulate offers a free trial. The complete package for individuals costs $999 for the year. Team packages cost $1,299 per user, per year.

“How To” Tutorials

If you already have a blog, you may find starting a podcast or a YouTube channel is a natural progression. “How To” online tutorials are a fun, light-hearted way to show your audience how to cook, sew, garden, sing, paint, draw, play games, etc. YouTube channels can be monetized and depending on how much traffic you get and how many people subscribe, you can earn $7.80 per 1000 clicks. But google takes 45%.

Webinars/Workshops

Course content can be used in conjunction with webinars and workshops. They can act as a supplement to an online course or they can be completely stand-alone events that generate traffic. The participants of a workshop or webinar may purchase an online course as a result. Webinars and workshops can be streamed live. They are often free of charge, but not always. They are sometimes created to be gated content for blogs.

The requirements for online tutoring gigs, especially TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language), have become stricter because the market is saturated. So you need to complete specific, accredited courses.

Tutoring is not restricted to teaching languages. Teachers, psychologists, counselors, life coaches, and health/fitness/yoga instructors can find freelance work on many platforms like:

Upwork – online hiring platform with tutoring jobs.Skooli – tutoring platform.Udemy – tutoring platform and online courses. Udemy teaches you how to create online courses, offers a platform for tutors to work from, and sells a vast array of online courses to learners.TutorRoom – sells tutoring software that allows tutors to accept payments, create schedules, and virtual classrooms. TutorRoom also sells online courses.Wyzant – You can create your own tutoring business and list your services on Wyzant.Codementor – work as a coding tutor through codementor.io

Online coaching is usually carried out face to face via video conferencing apps and software. Become a business coach or a life coach. Many people are setting up their own blogs to teach others how to become business and life coaches.

If you are already an experienced coach perhaps it’s time to move your coaching session to an online platform. Or find freelance coaching jobs through platforms like:

How to Earn Actively and Passively from Combining a Blog with Coaching

Example: You have a passion for optimal health, and you want to work in the wellness niche. So you become a Functional Medicine Coach and set up an online coaching business.

You can then make money from your blog, which is promoting Functional Medicine through the content on your blog. You decide to complement this by opening an online store to sell health products. At the same time, you also monetize the site through affiliate marketing. And you offer online Functional Medicine coaching sessions. Group workshops are another option. With the appropriate video integration software, you can coach multiple people at the same time.

In addition, you can create online coaching courses, or other health and wellness courses, to sell through your site, as well as offering your digital content to affiliate marketers in a similar niche. You could also create digital products called gated content. Gated content is long-form content like ebooks and whitepapers. Offering these products for free, in exchange for a visitor’s name and email address, is part of a sound content marketing strategy.

The Final Decision

Although many people look for companies that hire remote workers, even more people are choosing to start their own online businesses from home. Making money online can be achieved with minimal financial outlay. But realistically, starting any business is going to require some start-up funding. The ways to make money online, that I’ve discussed here, are not get-rich-quick-schemes.

To run a successful business, online or elsewhere, requires motivation, stamina, a solid business plan, patience, and passion. A willingness to embrace new techniques and learn about unfamiliar business strategies already shows that you are on your way to financial independence and freedom from a rigid 9 to 5 existence.

Making Money Online is a Lifestyle Choice.

The post How To Make Money Online appeared first on Blog On Your Own.

Original Source: blogonyourown.com

Today I want to shine some light on the importance of blog niches. So if you’re going to start a blog that makes money, this article is right up your street!I’ll start at the beginning by defining what a blog niche is and why it’s important to choose the right niche for your blog.

Then I’ll cover 3 main aspects of blogging niches:

Firstly, I want to introduce you to the blogging niches within blogging niches.Secondly I’ll talk about which niches are the most profitable to write in and how to find them.And thirdly, I’ll list some of the different blog categories that we call blogging niches. And give you a few examples, from each macro niche, of blogs that hit the big time (in their chosen nano niche). Most of the blogs I mention are between 5 and 10 years old and started small. They are still going and are all profitable.

When it comes to blogging, the “blogosphere” is your oyster.

Remember: Everything is connected. Your blog niche, your blog name, your blog post titles, your blog topic, your blog content, and your target audience should align.

Blog niches ideas

Before we get to the heart of it all, a quick clarification.

What are blog niches? What is niche blogging?

You may also like

How To Write an About Me Page (with Examples)

It’s become normal to refer to blog categories as blog niches. It’s not really accurate, but for all intents and purposes, let’s just go with the majority votes here.

Blog niches describe the genres that separate one general topic from another, in a broad sense (the total opposite of what niche means).

As a noun, a niche is defined as a recess in a wall, originally used for housing statues.

Meanwhile, as an adjective, it is defined as “ interests that appeal to a small, specialized section of the population.” And bloggers who specialize by writing in these “small pockets” are known as niche bloggers.

Mmm, so if the blogosphere were a wall, full of niches, then every “niche” would house a blog category! Ha! So it is quite accurate, after all. Thanks for staying with me through that small quandary.

And then, in each niche, there would be like 100 other niches to house all the different blog subcategories.

Okay, let’s move on.

Why choose a niche? Won’t a general blog appeal to more people and bring me more traffic?

Choosing a niche gives you advantages.

Focus

It keeps you focused on a topic, so it’s easier to create content. And with good content, your readers keep coming back for more of the same.

Build a reputation

By committing to a niche, you send a strong message to your audience. This is my domain. This is what I know. Let me teach you. So you become recognized as an expert in that field.

However, choosing a niche doesn’t mean you have to be an expert from the get-go. But when you constantly research and write about a specific topic you enjoy, you will become one.

Longevity

Your interest in your topic will keep your content fresh. You won’t get bored writing about things you find interesting, challenging, and beneficial to you, not only as a blogger but as a human being. Your readers will pick up on the authenticity, and that’s what keeps them coming back.

Build an audience

Read about

How to Choose the Best Domain Name

It is easier to grow an audience from within a niche. Just as it is in life, you’re not going to look for bacon in the fresh fruit section of the supermarket. You won’t find what you want. So it’s the same with your blog. It needs to be in the right “aisle.”

Easier to monetize

Why? When you write in a niche, your target audience is specific. So the products (e-books, courses, etc.) you sell, the affiliate links, the ads you promote, and your content align.

What comes first, the topic, or the niche?

To have a successful blog, you need to choose your niche carefully. You need to select a topic you love but also a profitable niche.

A successful blog needs to be well-thought-out. The best place to start is by researching the various blog niches. Therefore make 3 lists:

Of the most popular genres.The most profitable blogging niches.And the last, a list of topics that excite you or that you know a lot about.

This will lead you to a shortlist of possible niches.

What are the 3 most important factors when choosing a niche for your blog?

Know your audience. Know their mindset. What are they looking for? Find a niche that can improve people’s lives, teach them something, or solve a problem. (This is why “How-to-blogs” do so well.)Be passionate about your topic. It always helps to have some knowledge, but it’s not essential.Have a strategy to monetize. Will it be easy to monetize? How many income revenues can you generate through this niche?

Now let’s get to the nitty-gritty of niche blogging.

Defining blogging niches within blogging niches – The key to a profitable blog

If you are familiar with content marketing, you’ve probably heard of mega, macro, micro, and nano influencers. Within social media circles, these influencers yield different degrees of power over their peers. And their influence, in turn, affects the sales, promotion, and popularity of products, brands, services, and blogs.

Like influencers, niches can be categorized according to the traffic they generate. For instance, mega-influencers (think mainstream celebrities) have more than 1 million followers. And nano influencers have between 100 and 1 000 (1 000 and 10 000 for blogs). But interestingly enough, these mega influencers don’t do as much for a brand or blog as it would seem. It is, in fact, the nano influencers that yield the most influence.

Blog niches

The same principle can be applied to blog niches. A blog niche refers to a blog with specific content aimed at a particular target audience. When you start a blog, it is the nano-niche that you want to focus on first. I’ll give you an example, using Sport as a category.

The macro niche is Sport. It is broad and generalized, and under this heading, absolutely anything to do with Sport can be found.

The macro blog niche is going to remain broad, and it’s from this niche you start refining the concept of your blog.

Topic comes next

Choosing your topic comes next. Do you want to focus on sporting events, or do you want to focus on the health, fitness, and nutrition of athletes? This could include how different sports require different training programs, different skills, different diets, etc.

You can focus on sports news and cover topics like baseball, football, or boxing. Do you want to talk about one sport only? Or maybe do you want to focus on famous sportsmen (and women!) throughout history or the Olympics only? Do you want to talk about weight lifting? Can you see how the broad subject begins to narrow? This is called the microblogging niche.

Say you settle on a micro-niche like weight lifting, but you want to concentrate on women in weight lifting. This is where you start to cross over into the nano niche. And this is where you will find your core audience. Once you identify your target audience, you are set to go.

But what if you only want to focus on Asian Female Weight Lifters? Even better! You have found your nano niche, and you can create as much content as you possibly can within this niche. Eventually, you will either run out of viable content in this niche, but so what. You haven’t even scratched the surface of the slightly more general, but still niche, the topic of female weightlifters in the rest of the world!

When you reach the stage of identifying what your nano niche is, you’ll be so excited. It is much easier now to find the first ten or twenty titles for your content calendar. And once you decide on your macro blog niche, you can start thinking of a crowd-pleasing, attention-grabbing, dot-com-ending blog name of note!

Example of a niche within a niche, to find your first series of topics (nano)

Macro niche: SportMicro niche: WeightliftingNano niche: Asian Women Weightlifters

Remember:When you choose a blog name, don’t use your nano niche in the title. With your blog/domain name, you want your macro and micro-niche reflected. But not the nano.

What are the most profitable blogging niches of 2020, so far?

A blog that offers value to readers by solving real-world problems will become profitable.

If a blog is generating less than $2 000 per month, it is seen as a “hobby blog.” Once it starts bringing in $2 000, and more, every month, it has crossed the threshold into a “profitable blog.”

According to Brandon Gaille’s Blog Millionaire podcast, the 6 most profitable blog niches are:

Personal Finance blogsMarketing (especially Digital Marketing) blogsFood blogsLifestyle blogsMommy blogsTravel blogsBut they are by no means always at the top. Other profitable niches include:Beauty/Fashion blogsNews/Politics blogsTechnology blogsHealth/Fitness blogsMusic/Movies/Entertainment blogs

And there is no set-in-stone formula to turn a blog into profit. Of course, there are tried and tested methods, well over 15 last time I checked. But each niche will have certain income generators and revenue streams that work better or don’t work at all, for that niche.

And if you want to blog in a niche that is not recognized as a profitable niche, you can still do it. You may be the one that makes a profit from your specific niche because you find perfect solutions to problems you and your readers are looking for.

How to find a blog niche that makes money (5 Easy Steps)

1. How unique is your niche?

Once you have your niche, make a list of possible blog titles. How many blogs exist in this niche? Can you come up with original angles and unique content?

Can your knowledge and experience solve common problems?

2. Conduct thorough market research

Aim the marketing research at your specific blog niche, your nano-niche. Are other bloggers in this niche generating over $2 000 per month? How much traffic is getting generated per day/week/month?

Are other blogs in this niche making money? What methods are they employing? Ads, affiliate marketing, online courses, e-books?

3. Identify your target audience

You must identify who your target audience is. What questions do they have, and what problems do they want you to solve? What do they want to learn about? Do they fit a certain demographic?

4. Find out profitable keywords

Find out what the most profitable keywords are for your niche (both in terms of traffic and for generating revenue). By identifying 5 to 15 significant keywords, you can plan a list of titles for your content calendar.

5. Solve real-world problems

Use sites like answerthepublic.com, Reddit, and Quora to see what questions people are typing into Google’s search bar.

Can you solve these problems and answer their questions?

In short, as you can see, the easiest way to get your niche to become profitable is to give readers what they want. Answers to questions. Instructions on how to do things. Ways to improve themselves.

Easy peasy lemon squeezy! Right?
