Do you feel like you are spending lots of time and getting nowhere with it?

Earn income selling your expertise

 

Are You An Expert?

Do you have expertise in an area?

Did you know that if you have any expertise that took you hard work and effort to acquire, then you may be able to make money from that expertise?

It could be vocational or hobby based, any topic you are an expert on is eligible.


Residual Income

Creating a residual income stream has never been easier.

One way you can do this is by creating a digital training product that you can produce once and sell many times over.

Yes, it takes some time and commitment, but if you are willing to share your expertise with others all over the world, it may well be that you can create a lucrative income stream that is residual in nature.

You can earn money whilst sleeping, spending time with family or friends or whilst you are just relaxing!

This year has been a busy one.

And one thing that has stood it is how diverse our customers needs are, yet at the same time falling into regular observable patterns.

The key thing a lot of businesses are really seeking is education, especially on the subject of social media marketing it seems.

This week we explore the question in our latest marketing video tip.

We have also had to postpone the training course launch, as we are just too busy at the moment and have not had the time to promote it properly, so apologies if that has caused disappointment.

We often find there is a massive misconception about the role of offline and online marketing, we believe they work hand in hand, one feeding from the other.

Other news:

Our new video production facility is just about finished and we are open for business.

You can now produce a fully branded scripted business video for your website from as little as £250+VAT.

This week has been interesting, as we are exploring an upgrade to our green screen studio and looking at the technology to take it mobile.

So what is the difference with that and what other businesses are doing?

We are going to be taking some state of the art audio techniques on site, which will allow us greater control over background noise. This is usually reserved for the studio alone, but we will be taking a studio setup out with us in a very nifty cabinet, so exciting stuff!

We have a new video this week, which helps us see how using narrative in video can be extremely powerful when we stop telling OUR story...
