Many people are hurting right now. This nation (and the world) have been negatively impacted by this COVID-19 pandemic.
Many people have lost their sources of income. Others have lost their homes. Still others have lost their savings trying to stay in their homes and keep going until things “get back to normal.”
Being cut off from normal in person relationships, whether it is at the office or out social with friends, is having detrimental effects on our society. People are yearning for some sort of way to stay connected.
There is one area of e-commerce that has grown tremendously in this time of COVID-19. That is the growing availability of online course instructions. Whether it is for classroom instruction for school age children or adults trying to learn or improve a skill set that will help them in this environment, online is where everyone is turning.
It is exactly this type of environment that podcasting is beginning to thrive like almost no other alternative out there! Podcasting is quickly becoming the fastest growing communication medium on the planet right now!
If you have a message to share, starting a podcast is a good first step.
If you have a skill set that will help someone to accomplish something that will benefit them right now, you have a potential client who may pay you money to teach them. A podcast can be your way to earn some additional income in the process.
It really is not hard to start a podcast. You need a device to record your voice (and most smart phones will have this already installed).
You then need a topic to talk about. I have my podcast training clients to write down three or four topics where other people are asking them for help. This is a good opportunity to realize you could create a podcast around those topics.
Think of it like this, if others are already asking for your help in these areas, you are already being recognized as an expert in that area! That’s right! You are an expert!
Just start to record your thoughts and ideas of that particular skill set you have and then share it with others. Put it out there on social media. Do it for free as you get started.
As you become more widely known and you are getting more requests for help, then you can start to move over in charging a small fee to others who ask for your help.
Congratulations! You have now monetized your podcast!
This is only one small example of how quickly it can happen. I’ve been helping people for over four years (at this point) to excel in exactly this type of scenario. But with the onset of COVID right now, my business has exploded beyond my wildest expectations!
If you have an idea that will help someone else achieve their desired goals, share it in a podcast. Start the process now and you could soon have an entirely different career path that cannot be shut down by COVID!
