5 beginner-friendly skills you can learn to make $50,000+ before the end of 2021

// THREAD //
The world is going remote.

That means if you are highly skilled, you will be highly paid.

If you want to take advantage of this EARLY, the skills in this thread are worth learning.

All of them are beginner friendly, but will require time and effort (of course).

Let's begin.

If you can bring a service based business quality leads, they won't have a problem paying you a few thousand dollars for them.

>> Facebook ads
>> Google ads
>> Cold email
>> LinkedIn DMs

This is the skill I built my agency around.
Who can you sell lead generation to?

>> Blue collar niches
>> Coaches/consultants
>> Agency owners
>> Solar companies
>> Gyms
>> Car dealerships

Those are just a few, but any service based business *can* work.

Most businesses STILL don't understand or appreciate the power of email marketing.

They are missing out on a HUGE channel of revenue.

Sub-skills you will need:

>> Copywriting
>> Software understanding
>> Setting up email flows
Who can you sell email marketing to?

>> Ecommerce stores
>> Service based businesses
>> Digital product creators
>> Coaches/consultants

Anyone that has a GOOD offer stack, your job is to help them sell more.

You can create an agency or SaaS with this.

For the sake of staying "beginner-friendly" we will stick to the agency model.

Skill recommendations:

>> WebFlow + Carrd
>> Design principles
>> Copywriting (optional)
>> Content hierarchy
Who can you sell web design/dev to?

>> Service based biz's (again)
>> Ecom stores
>> Digital product creators
>> Anyone that is online

You will have to think outside the box for this. Not everyone needs a full website.

Build pieces of funnels.

Everyone needs content online.

>> Blog articles
>> Tweets
>> IG posts, stories, videos
>> YouTube editing

If you can pair these with guaranteed growth via ads, influencer shoutouts, etc even better!
Who can you sell content creation to?

>> Personal brands
>> IG influencers
>> Twitter influencers
>> YouTube creators
>> Local businesses
>> Ecom stores
>> Most niches that are online

The more successful/busy these businesses are the better. They want more time on their hands.

We talked about lead generation.

You can get on a call with these leads and take a commission from the sale.

An agency sells a $5000 service, you take 15%, that's $750.

Close 3-5 calls a week, you do the math.

Learn sales

Who can you close sales for?

>> Agencies
>> Coaches/consultants
>> Influencers with high ticket courses

Understand their current sales process.

Have them send leads to you.

Close on the call.
Those are the 5 skills I recommend.

You can charge $1000-$3500/mo+ for each of them.

If you want a step-by-step guide to starting an agency with one of these, get The Agency Course

I teach lead generation as a service inside.

Write a free ebook and make $25,000 from it

// THREAD //
You've heard it before
>> write an ebook

This is entirely different.

Let's start.
1. Think big

You're not going to create a twitter growth guide.

You're going to create the most insane lead magnet to get you an innumerable amount of leads for your business/agency.

That's when your ebook becomes worth it.
