How to Sell a Service Online
There are plenty of different ways to make a living marketing yourself online. Unfortunately, the majority of them involve complicated elements that might be off putting to someone who isn’t already familiar with the world of internet marketing.
In this post, we’ll look at something that should be a lot simpler to understand for many people: selling a service.
The idea is very straightforward: you simply find something you’re good at and you can supply over the web and then advertise your services. It’s just like being a freelancer offline except you get to choose who you work with, when you work and how much you work etc. much more easily.
Types of Services to Provide Online
So what types of services are there that you can provide online?
One very easy example is writing. If you are good at writing copy, then you can write for companies that need advertising copy, content writing for their website or a range of other types of writing. To supply the work, all you need to do is to send word documents via e-mail and most clients will be able to pay you via PayPal.
Another type of service you can provide online is web design. This is one of the most common types of services you will find businesses providing and it’s an excellent choice if you know how to use WordPress and you have a good eye for graphic design. Even if you do not have a good eye for graphic design, you can still be a web designer.
SEO services are also very popular and in this case you will be earning money for marketing. You can also branch out and offer a more comprehensive marketing package that might also include branding, social media marketing and content creation.
There are countless more options too though. Whether you want to be a proof-reader, a coder, a consultant, a personal trainer, a music composer, a narrator, a coach or a video editor there are tons of options available for you.
In order to start finding work, all you need to do is to look for a marketplace to sell your skills. Often you’ll be selling to businesses, so a good place to look is on freelancer sites that are frequented by business owners such as UpWork, Freelancer or Elance.
Another option is to post your services on webmaster/marketing forums such as Warrior Forum. If you price yourself well, then you can actually get work for years from a single advert!
Having said the above, there are other services you can offer online like online courses. You can package your knowledge and passion and sell it online in the form of an online course.
Offering online courses online is one of the many topics I will be discussing here so always check back anytime. You can bookmark this page for easier access.
