    376: Audience Engagement, Affiliate Sales, and Automated Product Funnels

    376: Audience Engagement, Affiliate Sales, and Automated Product Funnels

    What would it take to make the 4-Hour Workweek a reality?
    Since we last caught up, this stay-at-home-mom blogger has been on a mission to automate and simplify her business.
    Yes, by request, Rosemarie Groner from BusyBudgeter.com is back for a 4th round on the podcast!
    If you are just joining us, let me catch you up on the backstory...
    In her past life as a state trooper and home daycare operator, Rosemarie made an incredible transformation in her own household’s finances -- reducing expenses and paying off debt.
    She shared her winning money strategies on a blog for “chronically disorganized” moms. 
    Within her first year, she was making $5k a month, mostly from ad income.
    A year after that, $20-25k, mostly from affiliates and her own email list.
    And a year after that, she’d even touched the 6-figures a month mark by creating her own products.
    Tune in to hear how Rosemarie:
    Turned her best content into a 2-year automated email sequence. Fine-tuned that sequence to earn affiliate commissions and sell her products. Drives traffic today. Decided to cut off a profitable segment of her audience.

    375: Rapid Side Hustle Prototyping: A New Income Stream on Your Lunch Break?

    Can you build a new income stream on your lunch break?
    This week's guest says yes, and shares how.
    In this episode, I’m joined by Mike Zima from ZimaMedia.com -- a full-service digital marketing agency that got its start with a single $5 sale on Fiverr.
    It’s been a while since we talked about Fiverr, but the way today’s guest has used the platform to start and grow his freelance business is an eye-opener.
    Mike’s claim to fame: He’s the only Fiverr seller who’s mentioned in Fiverr’s IPO pitch deck.
    But it all started with one $5 order.
    He’s now doing thousands of dollars a month, perhaps tens of thousands of dollars a month in Fiverr sales.
    Tune in to hear what’s working on Fiverr today, Mike’s “rapid gig prototyping" strategy to test out new offers, and how to wean your reliance off of Fiverr while building your agency.

    374: Side Hustle Legal Q&A with Mariam Tsaturyan

    Are you operating online fully compliant with GDPR and CCPA regulations?
    Do you have the right type of liability insurance to cover you should the worst case happen?
    If you’re unsure about any of the legal stuff surrounding you, your business, or side hustle, it should be a lot clearer by the end of this episode.
    This is because Mariam Tsaturyan from FreelanceandMarketing.com has graciously agreed to do some legal listener Q&A for us in today’s show.
    She’s a licensed and practicing attorney, who helps bloggers and online business owners navigate the often-murky waters of legal regulations and compliance.

    373: The Sweaty Startup: How to Start a Local Service Business

    Do you know how much cash flows through your hometown on a monthly basis?
    In this episode we explore how to get some of that cash flowing toward you!
    I'm joined by Nick Huber, co-founder of Storage Squad and host of The Sweaty Startup podcast.
    Storage Squad, a student storage service, has grown to over $3M in sales since starting it as a little part-time project back in 2011.
    I invited Nick on The Side Hustle Show to help walk us through his "sweaty startup" framework. That is, how you can start a low-risk, low-overhead, local, service-based business, set it up for success, and let that be the vehicle that drives you away from a lifetime of cubicle slavery.
    Tune in to hear Nick’s thoughts on generating service business ideas you could start today, evaluating the market and competition, and scoring your first customers.
    That’s why I think this is pretty exciting -- it really doesn’t take many customers to begin to make a meaningful income here.

    Bonus: My Course Launch Experience and Results

    Bonus: My Course Launch Experience and Results

    Early last summer I joined Teachable’s “Creator Challenge.”
    The premise was to research, create, and launch an online course over the next three months.
    On top of that, Teachable provided expert support, a community of fellow instructors, and a little friendly competition.
    People have been asking me about creating an online course for years — but since I tend to work better with a deadline, I jumped in on the challenge.

    372: 15 Ways to Monetize a Website

    Creating your own website can definitely be a great side hustle–if you take the time to monetize it.
    But the problem is that many people who create websites have no clue how to actually make money with them.
    When this happens, your website becomes a liability. You’re sinking precious time and money into something that isn’t giving you a return.
    However, it’s entirely possible to prevent that from happening or to fix the problem if it has already started. You just need to know how to use your website to generate income, and in this article, I’m going to show you how.
    Let’s look at 15 great ways you can monetize your website and turn it into a proper revenue-generating machine.

Thank you Nick

In my opinion this is not just a must listen to show about side hustles, it is done in an interesting manner by a presenter who easily comes across as trustworthy.
I’m so glad I came across this show.
I’m beginning two or three of the side hustles at the moment.
Again, thank you Nick.

My Favorite Podcast

If I was to do a podcast, I would follow Nick Loper's example. Good guests, good questions, and honest. Many of the side hustle/entrpreneur podcast hosts are so cheesy and just peddling themselves.
