Are you looking forward to making money online with consulting? It is an easy and impressive way to make money but it requires some sort of expertise.
Now, this is a bit interesting and knowledgeable part where you actually need some knowledge to talk about something. But, the good thing is that knowledge can be acquired easily if you want to and that knowledge could be very useful to others who will pay you.
I am not saying your knowledge is not good but there are chances that you may not be aware of the fact that Consultants charge for minutes. Yes, those at the top of the industry charge a very high amount for only an appointment of a few minutes. Imagine yourself in a position where you are the top guy and people want to know your view on everything.
You can make a hell lot of money but if you are looking to start it, here is the simple formula. All you need to do is to start a blog with your knowledge of the niche and keep publishing your knowledge. If people are reading your stuff, they are eventually going to ask your opinion and thoughts too. And, you can charge them to schedule an appointment on a phone call or video conference.
The best plan is to let people know about your knowledge for free and they will pay to get more of it.
There are different types of consulting that you can do depending upon your expertise. I make money with financial consultancy which I am good at.
What kind of Consulting you can do?
- Academic Consulting
- Financial Consulting
- Tax Consulting
- Marketing Consulting

- Legal Consulting
- Marriage Consulting, etc.
These are some of the examples of doing consultancy where you can make money. But, it can be anything based on your skill set and knowledge.
How to Start Consulting?
Once you are clear with what you want to do then you can start planning on how to execute it. And, it’s not that difficult as you have got the clarity of doing things in the way you want. All you need is some people who can pay for the knowledge that you have and you need to help them with what they want to do.
So, the easiest way is to start sharing your knowledge for free and if it has value people would come to you seeking your help and there you can start charging them. You can select a free platform like Youtube, Blogging, Linkedin, etc. where you can easily get some recognition for your work, and then when the time is right with the right number of people following you, you can launch your consultancy program.
If you are good at speaking then start with a podcast or video content depending upon what makes you comfortable or both. But, if you like writing then blogging can be a good consideration, to begin with. And, trust me if your content is really valuable you will get an audience for your content be it a blog or a podcast.
