How to monetize your knowledge and experience through live events

Are you an expert or have a lot of experience in a specific area?

Are you an expert or have a lot of experience in a specific area?  

It means that you could monetize your knowledge through live events because your experience puts you in a unique place where you can teach others how to do certain things. For instance, if you're a freelancer earning a decent amount of money, you could teach others how to do the same, how to grow their freelancing career. That's not only an extra income for you but will also give you a lot of satisfaction because teaching and helping someone else is a very rewarding experience.

The obvious way is to start a consulting business. It may sound complicated, but it’s very easy. You should start small, which means that you can invest just a small amount of money. You can work from home (you probably already are working from home) and save money on renting an office. You can create an Instagram account instead of creating your own website, which will save you some money again. A PayPal account will help you collect money from your future clients. Once you’re done with setting up your small business, you can start using live events to sell your services and find new clients. In this article, we’ll explain how you can do that using live events. Just keep reading.

Live events are a perfect tool to start your consulting business because they create a powerful connection between you and your audience.

How to use free live events:

Free live events are usually used to promote your services. It is a good way to start. Your audience will be able to see how you think, assess your experience, and meet you on a closer level before buying some services from you. In this way, you'll get loyal clients that will stick with you for a long time. Doing free live events is also a stepping stone for paid live events because it teaches you the basics, and you get better and better every time so that in the end you'll be able to charge people to attend your events.

How to use paid events:

Paid events are live events where people have to pay to attend the event. You can make the best use of them when you already have an established and loyal audience because it will be easier to sell them since you'll already have the audience and a certain reputation.

Fortunately, Livelix is the perfect tool to start monetizing your knowledge and experience, and we'll tell you exactly how to do that.

  1. Enable the scheduling feature so that anyone can schedule a meeting with you. It works the same way as Calendly, but it integrates with Livelix live events and meetings.
  2. Create your meeting types. You can create a short free introduction meeting and a few meetings where you charge your clients for a consultation call with you. This is easily done through Livelix scheduling.
  3. Use live events to promote your consulting business. Create offers and share them during your live events, so that your audience will be able to schedule a meeting with you right during or after your live event.
  4. When you're ready, go with Livelix Paid Events. We make it very easy for you to charge your live events, you just need a PayPal account. What's even better is that your paid live events can also be a recurring income stream because you can sell them even after they're finished.
  5. If your event has a sponsor, don’t hesitate to mention them during your Livelix Paid Events, also you can invite them to join your event and share their products and services.

If you’re not happy with using Livelix, you will need to find three other tools instead - a webinar/live events platform, a video communications platform (Zoom, RingCentral, etc.), and a scheduling tool (Calendly,  cal.com, etc.).
