How to Turn Content Creation Into Side Hustles

Side hustles – could they really replace your full time income?

You bet they can. In fact creating your own side hustle is becoming quite the trend. With bestselling books like Side Hustle: From idea to income in 27 days my friend Chris Guillebeau just released, and there are many blogs and podcasts dedicated to it.

Having a side hustle is a great way to test and validate that what you want to build is actually going to fly, before you quit your job or throw your life savings into a business that hasn’t made a sale yet!

Judging from a State of the Side Hustle survey of over 2,000 people done by Podia this year, the online course/ digital downloads/membership space is only going to grow in the foreseeable future, as more folks are looking to leave their full time employment to make a go of creating passive income than ever before.

If you’re a content creator who’s been looking to make a profit from your side hustles, then this episode of Untapped is perfect for you, as Len Markidan, Chief Marketing Officer at Podia, dives right into the juicy details.

We chat about how the creator economy is booming and that this is causing employers to be terrified.

And rightly so, as I keep harping on about in my podcasts on how to tap into the future of work and designing your own ideal lifestyle with multiple work gigs!

In this episode you’ll learn:

  • Just how many content creators are looking to quit their day jobs and replace their full-time income with their side hustles
  • How many of the creators survey have a day job and how many of them plan to quit to become a full-time creator.
  • Of those creators who plan to quit their jobs, how so they plan to leave them!
  • The 3 most common channels for monetization right now
  • How passion, profit and potential all fit together as a content creator
  • How Podia helps content creators sell their digital products in one easy-to-use platform
  • Why you should consider taking your side hustle and turning it into your full-time gig.

How to Monetise Your Expertise

I believe that every single person who has skills and knowledge, when combined with a love for what they do and know, can monetise all of this and get paid to be themselves.

And not just because that’s exactly what I did 9 years ago when I started the Suitcase Entrepreneur blog….although that’s certainly made me more bias!

I had no freaking idea that I would end up building a business from my blog by tapping into my sweetspot, the intersection of what you know, what you’re good at and what you can get paid for.

But it’s more than just that, it’s combining ALL of you, into something that people are willing to invest in, and becoming someone they want to learn from.

Looking back to my childhood, school days and what I naturally enjoyed and was good at, through to my University days, jobs I landed, people I hung out with, activities I did and I realized that what I ended up building, was really an extension of all the things I LOVE to do.

Add in a ton of value for others and you have yourself a perfect platform from which to monetize your expertise (if you’re willing to do the work, dig deep and commit to the journey of course)!

I became a ‘Leading Learner’ by being an avid student of business, travel and life, and then teaching and coaching others on how to come up to speed so they could go after their dreams too.

I shared my exact path, that I turned my humble blog into multiple revenue streams bringing in a quarter of a million US$ dollars per year over the space of 4 years, in Chapter 5 of The Freedom Plan book.

I’m currently in the process of recording and publishing the audiobook version, and when I was recording this chapter, I was like damn girl, this is really good shit and more people need to know how to do this.

My gift to you is how to Monetise Your Expertise.

I’m giving this entire chapter away as a free episode of my UNTAPPED podcast!

Here’s what you’ll learn in this podcast episode:

  • The exact way in which I built my revenue streams from scratch.
  • What steps you can take to layer your revenue streams as you grow.
  • Nine key steps to take to monetise yourself using your sweet spot.
