Based on the challenge, I am supposed to not use any of my skills so I explore an unconventional method of making money online, discovering hidden opportunities in Google Maps. From identifying local businesses to optimizing their online presence, this experiment will challenge and show anyone who is interested what is possible.
Watch as I race against time, aiming to achieve this goal as quickly as possible. If you’re curious about creative ways to earn online, this video is a must-see!
I have put together the detailed steps I followed for this Make Money with Google Maps challenge in this Free eBook: https://www.superhumans.life/download-google-map-ebook/
The eBook explains in more depth the services I offered in the video, also additional services that could be provided as well as how to reach out via email.
Here is the summary to answer some of the questions in the chat: local companies could benefit from having an optimized Google Business Profile to help them get more leads and sales. What happens is that many of these companies have not claimed their Google Business Profile and have not optimized it for search. So the base service you can offer is to help them claim and optimize it.
In terms of how to actually do that, you need to first learn how to do the work by going through the Free Google training mentioned in the video. Please keep in mind that even if the service might seem simple to you, there are companies who don’t have the skills to do it themselves or don’t want to spend time learning about it, but could genuinely benefit from it. They just want the result. The Google training can be found here: https://events.withgoogle.com/mydigitalworkshop/online-training/
After you provide the base service, you can guide them to their Google Business profile from in their social media accounts or any other legitimate source of traffic they may have or that you can get them. From there assuming they are happy with your work, you can provide any other services that you have skills for and are useful to them.
The video is intended to be a challenge in which I try something I have not done before, but instead I can learn relatively quickly. The services I provide as an example in the video might be or might not be something that you would want to do. Feel free to choose for yourself. I decided to share my experience when trying them. Also, please consider my approach, my call examples and my suggestions as ideas, part of a challenge I took on. These can be surely be improved to enable you to even make more money.
Also, you might not necessarily charge the same as me, you could charge less or more. You also, don’t need to call like I did, you can email instead or reach out to them in any way that is appropriate to you. Irrespective of the channel you choose, the way you speak, present yourself and your services will make a major difference to whether the client trusts you and wants to work with you, irrespective of whether you have years of experience or not. Also note that the point is to help, not spam people. In addition, like with any approach to make money, not all clients you reach out may have the money to pay or the interest to work with you. That is part of the game.
The video is focused on presenting the idea, finding the clients and describing the service to offer because these are some of the most of challenging parts. I did not go into how to actually update the profiles because that is well described in the Google training.
And yes, you would need to deliver the services which may take additional time, but as you get more experienced that time can reduce. Lastly, depending on how you charge, you might of course need to pay transaction fees. In my example, I have created a Fiver profile to charge. Also note that I find the clients myself as shown in the video, I did not get them from Fiver so it did not matter that my profile was new.
