People have looked for ways to quit their “day job” for almost as long as there have been jobs. The internet has made this dream more obtainable than any other time in history. This is illustrated by the growing number of millionaires making six figure incomes online. Some, like Pat Flynn are pulling in six figures a month. I am not going to tell you that this article will do that. But, it will show you how to build an empire with online software.
Find Software That Automates a Service
The demand for quality content is driving several new industries. One of these is offering software that allows automation or near full automation of content creation. You can find software that allows you to create eBook covers in minutes. Other tasks that software is readily available for includes; whiteboard animation, picture retouching, video editing, logo creation, and many more. Making money starts by identifying what type of service you enjoy and finding software that helps you provide it.
Create a Portfolio
Once you have your software in hand then it is time to find customers. I am going to burst your bubble a little here. You are not going to make thousands overnight. But, I can tell you from experience that you can quickly augment and/or replace your full time income (depending on your standard of living). For example, I used this method to make over $1600 my first month.
Creating this income starts by showing results. This is where your portfolio comes in. You will need something to show potential customers. People are highly unlikely to purchase any service where they don’t know you.
You identified the service you are going to offer and created a portfolio. Now, it is time to start finding customers. In the beginning, you are not going to be able to demand top rates. You are starting at the bottom. That is why, a great place to start is Fiverr. It allows you to advertise to the sizeable user base. At the time of this writing, they have over 2 million users. This is a great way to find customers looking for your services and build a customer base.
Provide an Awesome Service
Once you get your first customer then you must provide exceptional service. This is not as hard as it might seem. All you need to do is; set proper expectations upfront, meet the deadline that you agreed to, and provide a little more than they expect. For example, if you are paid to write an eBook then a great way to provide more is to include an eBook cover.
The ability to create a full time income from home has never been more real than it is today. You don’t even need a large amount of technical knowledge. I have provided the same formula that allowed me to quit my job. With a little dedication, persistence, and hard work then you can now know how to build an empire with online software.
