This is for anyone looking to earn extra income (aka side hustle) or passive income; anyone who wants to start a blog or YouTube channel or build a social media following; for entrepreneurs; small business owners; anyone who would like to build a business by showcasing their expertise, for example, financial advisors, insurance advisors, software consultants, writers, just about any service that requires an online presence.  Watch the first video for free below.

  • Is the fee one-time or recurring? It is one-time.
  • Can I watch the videos any time  I want? Yes. Access is forever. You will need a Facebook Account to access the course (the email used for Facebook and the email used to buy the course can be different)
  • I would like to resell the course. Is this possible? Yes, you can resell the course for a 30% commission.
  • I am a professional, entrepreneur or a small business owner. Will this course help? Yes! It will help you quickly set up your website and online profiles right and show you how you can leverage them for building a brand, a community that trusts you and would buy from you or hire you.
  • I am salaried with some interests I want to develop. Will this course help? Yes! The course discusses how you can use online communities to understand problems and issues that you can address to increase visibility.
  • I want to earn some extra income but I am not sure about the area. Will this course help?  The core idea of online money making is to help others without expectations and the money will come. Tom Cruise said “everyone has a story. Similarly “everyone has something to offer”. Some way in which they can help others. It should not take long for you to list that. Even if you are not an expert in that area, you can learn while you create content. This is what I did and am doing with freefincal. Once you think of at least one way to help someone else, the course will help you get ideas and create content around that.
  • Will this help me set up a website? Yes. A start to finish guide is included along with “how to write SEO optimised content”
  • When can I start seeing results? This is not a get rich quick scheme. Results will depend on your circumstances and the topic. For example, a financial advisor may see faster results than a salaried person working on this as a side project. Simply because for the financial advisor, online visibility is bread and butter. Similarly, a person writing about politics may get more revenue than a person writing poems because of community size interested in each are. Increasing visibility in the area we are good at is more productive than chasing after a “hot topic” we know nothing about.

It is important to appreciate this course is about build a primary or secondary income source that will last a lifetime. So we need to think long-term and focus on helping others in the community. Those who want to quickly earn some money are better off with gig jobs like filling surveys. This image best conveys the essence of the course.
