Cashflow is king. If you are still waiting for checks to come in from your affiliate networks and wanna hustle up some money on the side, consider providing a unique service to your local market!
Maybe you are decent at building websites (you don’t have to be PRO, just decent). Simply put an ad on Facebook in your local area targeting parents with an offer to teach their children how to build websites. See how people respond.
You can use Facebook’s new category targeting and choose Parents with kids between whatever ages.
Maybe you are badass on the guitar. Do some guitar lessons for the kids.
Perhaps you rock at graphic design.
Price accordingly. Whip up a simple landing page and ask them to call you or whatever.
The opportunities are endless. Whatever you are good at it, offer it up. Not only can you earn some money, it’s a great way to meet people in your local area, plus you can be like a mentor and shit! Who knows, Papa Bear may be so impressed with you that he’ll hit you up and introduce you to his hot niece 😉
This is definitely not for everybody, but if you are struggling with AM and are good at something (skateboarding, surfing, math, video editing, WHATEVER) you can provide that service to people in your area. With Facebook’s targeting options, it’s pretty damn easy to show your ads to the right kind of people. Then use the money you make to fund your campaigns.
If you haven’t seen Shoemoney’s “Soup To Nuts” Guide on Facebook Advertising, watch it here. Facebook advertising is amazing for these kinds of local services. He even shows an example of how he killed it on DENTIST leads. And everybody hates to go to the dentist! Facebook Ads is that good for these kinds of things.
Why try and find a job when you can create your own?
