My last article on Making Money Writing About Your Passion prompted this enquiry from regular reader, Nick:
“how can you generate an income stream from e-marketing and even sales of products of your expertise and knowledge”
You can make money from your expert ideas in your head – it’s called thought leadership. (I also recently wrote about Bernard Salt’s suggestion to become a thought leader.)
You make money from your thought leadership both online as Nick enquired and also the traditional offline methods such as speaking, mentoring and consulting.
One of the best thought leaders I know in the area of making money from your thought leadership is Matt Church. If you are interested in making money from the ideas in your head, as reader Nick is, then I strongly recommend you start by reading these two resources from Matt Church:
- This brief article “How to Become a Million Dollar Expert“; and
- This e-book “Sell Your Thoughts: How to build a high six figure income from the ideas inside your head“
If you like what you read then I recommend you also join the Australian Thought Leaders Community. (WA readers who want to be thought leaders should contact me directly as I have some guest passes to our Perth based monthly member events.)
