Discerning watchers who are regular witness to how the Internet has evolved over the last decade firmly believe that it’s still in an early stage. Those who have embraced this fast-becoming all-pervasive medium of communication beyond simply searching and emailing are considered a step or 2 ahead of others in realizing their dream goals.
For now let the dream goal be how to make more money online. This week let me deal on earning money through hawking your expertise. No, it’s not online tutorials (I’ll come to it may be next week) wherein you offer your mathematics knowledge online every night to a set of students.
Rather hawking your expertise as meant here is offering brief one-off solutions where you charge your client on per-minute basis. A similar example is that of Yahoo! Answers, a great help by all means, but there the interaction is not live and there is no money to be earned.
How are you paid? It’s better you get a PayPal account so that you can accept payment from virtually anywhere around the globe. In addition you may also get a Skype account that would facilitate talking to your clients live through the Internet.
In December last BitWine has commenced partnering with Skype to offer the “BitWine Taskbar Skype Edition” that is fully integrated into Skype 3.0, which allows users (like you or your client) to provide paid advice or instantly purchase the advice or knowledge urgently needed using Skype and PayPal.
I haven’t personally tried BitWine. So I may not comment on how fast you can make money through it. If any of my readers has tried it, do send in your comments.
However, in order to succeed online you ought to consider 2 important points.
One, as said in my last week’s post, do have a website of yours because that is where you can build your credentials that can be seen by your BitWine and other clients before they choose your service.
Two, establish multiple sources for making money online. BitWine is one. There can be others.
Will come back next Sunday. Until then goodbye, and best wishes.
