Selling Your Knowledge on the Net
 by: Stephen Freeman

It might seem websites are more of a fashion these days rather than a way to promote your products. Website addresses and email ids are as common as cell phone numbers which you exchange. “It’s a kind of adding more glamour to my visiting card, an image building tool.” This is a kind of opinion that many people have, mainly those making a living out of their specialized skill or talent. She can be a dancer, musician, magician, player, chartered accountant, chef, dentist, barber, hobbyist, gardener … I know you can add a lot many to it.

Well, a website for any of them will surely add to their image, but it can be much more than just that. All you need is the right attitude and enthusiasm.

With a professionally designed website you can reach out to a wider group of people beyond any regional boundary. You can exchange information with people of your interest. You can sell your knowledge or expertise.

How? Lets try to find out.

A few examples will help.

Shira the Belly Dancer

A few days back a friend of mine referred me a site about a belly-dancer Shira. Shira is an Oriental dance (belly dancing) instructor and professional performer from Iowa. Since 1997, she has built & maintained an extensive educational web site at www.shira.net about Middle Eastern dance, music, and culture. Her main idea, with this website for her profession, was to spread this beautiful dance form to millions of people across the world. Now Shira is promoting thru her website her dance classes, her troupe, books on Belly dancing and even selling different items through her site. Today not only is http://www.shira.net a huge database of information about belly dancing, its teachers and performers, it is an inspiration to many such performing artists all over the world. Not to mention Shira is making genuine online income lot more from the leads generated from her site and the online selling.

Barbara the Painter

If you are looking for some genuine extra income beside your main stream of earning, a website can be a good tool. No, that doesn’t always mean selling your knowledge or services or products from your website. And that’s exactly what Barbara Burns, an European painter has done through her website http://www.barbaraburns.com/. Her website is a huge resource for articles, reviews, paintings, blogs and feeds. It has links to different sites related to art and painting. Barbara is carefully promoting her various affiliate programs and link exchanges through this site. The kind of website ranking she is getting, I am sure she is making good easy money out of it.

Michael the Tax Consultant

Website for any professional is a must today. It not only enhances his image, but also generates confidence in the mind of his present and would be clients. This surely is very much conveyed through Michael I. Atlas’ website http://taxca.com. Most people today try to find out maximum information before choosing any kind of service or consultation, and they prefer to do that from the privacy of their computer screen. I am sure Michael’s site will surely convince any such visitor and he must be generating lot of leads through his website. The right way to sell your knowledge.
