“It’s Your Summer of Money” Challenge Opportunity #5
Make Money as a Social Media Expert
What’s the hottest opportunity for 2011?
I’ve been quoted more than once saying it’s becoming a social media expert …
In past issues of The Writer’s Life, on Wealthy Web Writer, during teleconferences and webinars, and anywhere else I’ve been asked the question this year.
And even though we’re halfway through the year, it’s still my final answer.
That’s why I’ve chosen Nick Usborne’s program, How to Make Money as a Social Media Expert, for the final “Summer of Money” business opportunity.
Media firm BIA/Kelsey recently forecasted that between 2010 and 2015, social media advertising spending would multiply nearly 4 times.
That means the $2.1 billion spent on social media in 2010 will grow to $8.4 billion by 2015!
In his program, Nick teaches you everything there is to know about social media marketing and making money as a social media expert, as well as gives you step-by-step instructions on how to launch and run a successful social media business.
But the thing that makes this program perfect for today’s “Summer of Money” business opportunity is the amount of money you can make as a social media expert.
Right now, larger companies are paying up to $10,000 per day for social media experts to come in and teach their marketing executives how to accomplish their business goals through social media.
And even smaller companies, whose budgets aren't quite that big, are still willing to spend between $2,500 and $12,000 per month if you’ll help them accomplish their goals.
Imagine making $144,000 per year to help a company market their products using social media.
There’s never been a faster, easier – or more fun – way to experience the writer’s life.
And you don’t have to know anything about social media right now. If you follow the simple directions in the program, you’ll learn how to help businesses accomplish their social media goals … and you’ll have mastered a skill with six-figure income potential … in just a few months.
But before you decide if this is the right “Summer of Money” opportunity for you, let’s take a look at some of the questions most often asked …
First up, who needs a social media expert?
Asking that question today is like asking: which companies need a website?
They all do.
Nowadays, it would be hard for a business to operate without a website. And yet social media is already having a much bigger impact on businesses than the internet did, and at a much faster rate!
Back in the '90s when I first started working in publishing, the internet was only just starting to boom. And with it being an “unknown” and requiring quite a bit of technical expertise in order to adopt it, companies were slow to get online.
That gave dot-coms plenty of time to steal market share away from the brick-and-mortar companies who weren’t able to get it together in time.
This time, that lesson learned, coupled with a super-low barrier to entry, has caused businesses to adopt social media into their marketing mix at a much faster rate. The only issue is, just like with the internet, many who are doing it are doing it wrong, and therefore aren’t getting any benefit out of the time spent.
Think about it …
When businesses first started getting involved in social media, all they had to do was set up a Twitter profile or Facebook fan page, and voila – they were “participating in social media.”
It didn't matter if they made any money or really accomplished any other business goal, for that matter.
Simply creating a presence could earn you a nice check because companies knew they “needed a presence” on social media. They just didn’t know why.
That was then. This is now.
Business owners and marketers now realize that they need a return on the investment (ROI) of time and resources, just like they do any other marketing channel. They need a social media expert to get the job done, and they’re willing to pay to ensure it’s being done right.
How quickly can you get up and running as a social media expert?
In my opinion, this is where this opportunity gets even more exciting.
If you can find just an hour each day for the next month to complete the program, you'll know more about social media than 90-95% of social media experts. (And that’s if you have zero knowledge or experience going in.)
Or, if you really want to start making money fast, you could complete the course over the next week … learn the skills you need to help businesses accomplish their social media goals … and launch your business the week after.
And with the program, you’ll get access to 6 bonus webinars that will show you how to land and work with clients so that nothing will be left in doubt.
The number of social media “experts” out there already …
While it’s true there are a lot of people who claim to be experts because they’re able to update their Facebook status, many of these people have no idea how to market a business or actually generate revenue using social media.
They don’t know how to talk to potential clients about goals, ROI, or marketing strategies. And that’s where you’ll shine when you sweep in, share your expertise, and become their go-to guy or gal for social media.
Remember, when you complete How to Make Money as a Social Media Expert, you'll know more about social media than 90-95% of social media experts.
How social media experts make money …
As a social media expert, you can do anything from just consulting with your clients about their social media strategy to actually running their entire social media campaign. Here are 3 ways you can make money as a social media expert:
- Just getting on the phone with a client and talking to them about their social media strategy is worth at least $300 per hour to many clients. There are even consultants charging more than $10,000 per day just to teach social media to corporate executives.
- You could position yourself to do any one of many social media services for clients. For instance, clients often pay $2,500-$5,000 per month for launching and managing a Facebook fan page.
- You can manage their entire social media presence. Clients expect to pay a lot more for this level of service. And, of course, you can make a lot more than this by managing multiple clients at once.
