Will 2021 be the year that you decide to start your own profitable side hustle? Perhaps you intend to develop a side hustle into a full-time creative business one day? After a stressful and unprecedented 2020 many artists have found themselves questioning the way forward. This may be the catalyst to creating a sustainable small business that you enjoy in the future. One which brings in extra income and may even turn into your primary income one day.
This was the mindset that I adopted 10 years ago and fortunately it was the best decision I made. With the experience that I've had over the past decade I put together a bundle of courses and training that may be useful to you.
Find out more about the Creative Side Hustle Bundle below.
Why a Bundle for Creatives?
I believe that most people are creative in one way or another. Many do not give themselves the credit they deserve. Even fewer believe that their creativity can make an extra income. Yet some do and never look back. What is the difference between a dreamer and one that takes action and achieves success? This bundle of courses is intended to help creatives start the journey and take the correct action steps.
Most importantly I believe that by using your unique creative skills you will find the fulfillment that a 9-5 job is unlikely to provide. Who does not need fulfillment in life? We all do and it is the key to finding happiness.
What is in the Bundle?
The creative side hustle bundle consists of four courses. The first is called How to Start a Creative Side Hustle. In this course, which is based on audio recordings, I have tried to create the full picture from deciding whether you should start a side hustle, to choosing your ideal side hustle and then the action steps necessary to take this idea and turn it into a profitable small business. The emphasis is on creatives, but the concept will apply to any type of business.
The second course is called The Art of Content Marketing. I provide the latest copy of my book and a video of course setting out the main steps to creating content. This is the content that will form the backbone of your marketing.
A frequent hurdle for creatives is how to market their work in the new internet age. Marketing is no longer about paid advertising. It is about building trust and relationships with your ideal customer. Content marketing is a strategic way to do this while giving value to your customers and fans.
Keep in mind that the object of marketing is to grow your fan base and customers who will support you for years to come.
The third course is called How You Can Crush Video Marketing Quickly and Easily. This short course focuses on one of the most important forms of media that you can create. Videos.
Getting to know how to create short videos that grab attention and are engaging will set you apart from the rest. Using simple software online you can create amazing short videos that help to market you and your work quickly and effectively. No more boring social media, but rather interesting and varied social media posts and videos. You can add them to social media and include them on your website. Mastering basic video marketing is an essential and non-negotiable part of every creative business. Do not ignore video any longer.
The fourth course that has been included in this bundle is called How to Use Pinterest for Your Creative Business. As I explain in the course Pinterest is the number one social media channel for creatives. Many will argue this point and say they prefer something like Instagram. My reply is that they have not tried Pinterest or used it to its full potential.
When you properly optimise your Pinterest strategy, as fully explained in the course, anyone can turn Pinterest into a powerful marketing channel. The potential in Pinterest is so huge that I created this course specifically for creatives so that they can make tremendous strides in their marketing. This is without having to pay anything for paid advertising on Pinterest. This is pure organic traffic that anyone can tap into if you use Pinterest correctly. You cannot say that about the other so called social media giants that is for sure!
Cost Effective Bundle Offer
I've put all these courses into a bundle at a huge discount to make it easier for anyone to take up the challenge and create their creative side hustle.
Explore the rewards of building your own small business. One that you love and is based on your passion and one that will make you feel fulfilled despite what is happening in the world around you. Life is too short to be trapped in a miserable job with no security and reliance on one inadequate source of income.
By building a side hustle you give yourself an extra income source and the potential to do something you truly love. The choice of course is yours and I can only give you my personal experience. If you decide to take up this challenge please note that this is not the easiest way to make a living, but it is certainly one of the most enjoyable.
Starting a side hustle is about empowerment and taking control instead of being the victim of external forces that are beyond your control. Of course everything depends on your approach and your work ethic, but put those into motion and nothing will stand in your way. I wish you a happy and successful New Year!
