Generating revenue from your knowledge
You can absolutely make a living by selling your knowledge! You might have considered or even tried this before. Some of you might have tried and given up because you weren’t getting the revenue you hoped. I am here to urge you to read this and TRY AGAIN!! Particularly post 2020 disruptions…
The advantage of selling your knowledge is you don’t need the start up or overhead costs you would to open a business leaving you with more profits. But there is an art and science to achieving your goals. The diagram below created by Matt Church and Peter Cook demonstrates the different avenues to deliver your expertise out to your clients.
The bottom line: The more opportunities you take to deliver your service, the more people you will reach and the more revenue you will generate. You can absolutely play to your strengths but avoid putting all your energy into the area/s within your comfort zone. You don’t need to be the best in each of these areas, in fact if you apply Pareto’s 80/20 principle, being 80% successful in each area takes 5 times less effort than being 100% successful, so don’t waste your precious time on perfection!
Equally important is the way that you get your brand out to the world. When I began to establish myself, most of my focus was put towards my presence on social media. After several months, I was becoming disheartened, I hadn’t had any bookings despite having an established a reputation as an experienced transformational change consultant business and personal. I had a strong network and had been regularly updating and interacting on social media. Upon reflection I realised that a large portion of my potential clients were not regular users of social media. So, I began to consider other avenues to get my name out to these people. Upon research I discovered that a lot of my potential clients often kept up with corporate trends through short articles, videos, and audio clips. I now regularly devote time to join podcasts, shooting videos and writing blogs and articles with notable improvements. I know have stronger interest, better revenue and importantly I am spending more time on doing what I love vs chasing the lead.
If you have a vision to sell your skills or knowledge and you have a passion for what you do, don’t stop trying, I am confident you will succeed. Use your valuable time carefully and don’t get caught up in perfecting everything… Make a start and keep moving forward! Planning is fundamental.
