Dear AWAI Member and Friend, Social media is turning the business world on its head. No question about it. Just take the stories from Part One of this report – In just a few short months, 9 million people watched the YouTube video about how “United Breaks Guitars” – creating a public relations disaster for United Airlines and making every musician think twice about flying “the friendly skies” Comcast Cable rewrote their rules for customer service in response to Twitter

complaints – and turned a potential disaster into high satisfaction among their most vocal customers 1800Flowers now even lets you shop directly from Facebook – generating direct sales using social media and reaching customers who may never visit their website Social Media is changing everything about how business works online. Customer service. Sales. Marketing. Advertising. The rules are all being rewritten – with the customer driving much of the communication. Companies refusing to play by the new rules are taking blows left and right. Those that adapt are gaining market share and raving fans.

Here’s how this applies to you.
Clients have a new set of expectations for freelancers and web writers. You have to be social media savvy – not just web savvy. And yes, the rules are different here, too. If you can drive business results through social media, you have a huge opportunity to help clients create and manage their social media presence (some social media consultants are bringing in upwards of $10K a day just to teach social media to executives!) Want to add 10-25% or more in fees on your current web-writing contracts? Add social media to your list of services and you can quickly gain extra income from projects you’re already doing Need more clients? Look no further than Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn – you find clients, clients find you, and you land gigs just by joining the conversation (many clients are now looking first – and sometimes only – to social media when they need help) Get high-quality web traffic – referrals can bring you the most ready-to-buy customers, and social media is a referral medium. You can add 50% more traffic to your website through social media – and see a similar bump in income for your Money-Making Websites and self-publishing projects (using the same skills you sell to clients!)

Nick Usborne’s new How To Make Money As A Social Media Expert program is unlike any other social media course, program, or product out there.

PART ONE: Make Money Using Social Media

The social media discovery that’s rocking the business world …
Within two years, your freelance business will be dead or dying if you don’t have a solid social media presence. Is this a drastic prediction? Perhaps. But, take a look around at all the top copywriters and marketing gurus you know. How many of them have websites? Ten years ago, if you’d told them they’d need a website to keep their business afloat, they would have laughed at you! Now it’s an essential part of their business strategy. It’s the same for all businesses.

First, take a look at the timeline for how fast websites became critical to business …
Starting in the mid 1990s, the Internet became business-friendly and having a website made your business cutting-edge. (We can call this Phase 1) By the late 1990s, a website became another way to connect and communicate with your current customers. (Phase 2) In the early 2000s, customers and potential customers started turning to your website as a measure of whether you’re a serious business or not – and websites became a real business advantage. (Phase 3) And, by the late 2000s until now, websites have become an essential part in any business strategy. (Phase 4)

C O M P L I M E N TA RY S P E C I A L R E P O RT:

Now, take a look at how much quicker this is happening with social media …
While social media sites started popping up in earnest around 2003-2004, it wasn’t until 2007 that they became business-friendly. At this point, advertising and setting up social media profiles for your business was cutting edge. (Phase 1) Required Social Media By 2008, social media became a powerful medium for connecting and communicating with your current customers. (Phase 2) Through 2009 and 2010 customers have started to turn first to Facebook and other social media platforms to find your business – and if they can follow your competitor but not you, you may lose a customer. Social media has become a business advantage. (Phase 3) The next step is for social media to become an essential part in any business strategy. (Phase 4) It took over 15 years for websites to become a “must-have” for business. At the current rate, social media will hit Phase 4 and be a business essential within six total years – and we’re already four years in.

For Freelancers
Where do you need to be seen in social media to grow a thriving freelance business? Bare minimum: Facebook,Twitter, and LinkedIn. If you’re going to add social media services to what you’re offering clients, your list gets longer.

In How To Make Money As A Social Media Expert, Nick Usborne covers this in much greater detail. But, beyond a simple presence (hint: opening an account is not enough), Nick shows some specific, proven ways to use these and other social media services to get clients for your freelance business. • Who to follow, Like, and connect with in the social media world to grow your freelance biz

• Easily connect with your best prospects because of one big advantage social media offers • The simple social event that turns prospects into clients for your freelance services (this has nothing to do with selling)

You also get a 1-2-3 process for growing your freelance biz using social media. Even if you only use social media to promote your freelance services, Nick’s program is a smart investment.

As I ask around, I’m finding businesses – especially freelancers – without a social media presence are starting to see signs they’re being left behind. (Don’t let this be you!)

It’s no joke: within two years, your social media presence will be as important as your website.
Sure, a lot of marketers and business people have tried dismissing social media as a fad that will eventually just go away. But, these are the same curmudgeons who made similar predictions about putting up a business website – and look where that got them. In reality, social media is becoming deeper and deeper integrated into the entire Internet. The major search engines are now even using Twitter links, Facebook “Likes,” and other social media buzz to determine where a particular page will show up in search engine rankings. It seems like every week news breaks on a new way that social media is being integrated into our lives.

Even then, what makes social media relevant to business?
For one, a large majority of consumers are social media users. 82% of the U.S. teen and adult population use social media, according to The Faces Of Social Media, a 2010 study from Knowledge Networks and MediaPost Communication. And, that is 69% growth over 2009 – so we’re quickly getting closer to 100% of Internet users being on social media. And, while there are some age and gender trends (teens, for example, are the heaviest users), the demographics of social media cover the entire spectrum. And power users – about one in four teen and adult Internet users, or 20% of the total U.S. population – use social media every day. It’s not uncommon for these heavy users to open Facebook and Twitter in the morning (or apps they use to access these services) and keep them open all day as their portal into the Internet (move over, Google!).

Beyond this, users expect businesses to be involved in social media, and reward businesses who are.
Even as early as 2008, research by Boston-based consulting firm Cone found that 93% of Americans believed a company should have a presence in social media. And, 56% believed companies provide a better service by interacting with customers through social media. Make no mistake, social media has already become a business advantage. The Faces Of Social Media study found 15% of U.S. social media users – or 30 million people – said they’re more willing to buy from brands they can find in social media. 25% – or 50 million people – said they’re more likely to engage with a brand (such as visit their website) based on their social media presence. And, this is just self-reported data – the real numbers are likely much higher. After all, I know I’m not a minority in checking out a company’s article, blog post, or web page after they mentioned it on Facebook or Twitter – and I don’t think twice about it. I’m sure many users are just like me. Billions are being spent on social media – and it’s increasing fast. Smart businesses have quickly jumped on the social media bandwagon, and are spending in earnest to attract social media users as customers. Total spending on advertising across social media networks was $1.40 billion in 2009, and should come in around $1.68 billion in 2010 according to eMarketer. In 2011, social media advertising spending is expected to cross the $2 billion threshold. (30% growth in two years!) And, that’s just for advertising.

3 Ways To Collect Your Share Of The Billions Spent On Social Media

Total social media spending – including employees, freelancers, consultants, and services – could be dramatically more as companies throw their weight behind social media initiatives. At this point, we’ve found consultants making $10,000 a day simply to teach social media to corporate executives. There’s no guarantee you can make this much – yet figures like these make it clear that the money being spent on social media is tremendous. (Of course, half that would still be a good day for most of us!)

All the numbers are well and good – and provide significant PROOF on the growth of social media – but what’s going on at the ground level?
It’s one thing to look at all the stats and see that billions are being spent, consultants are making thousands per day, and social media is becoming a standard part of the marketing mix. But, what gets even better is when you start to see the actual impact social media is having on a case-by-case basis. Slow-moving companies are getting eaten alive by social media – as you’ll see in the United Airlines story. Others – like Comcast and 1800Flowers – see the business advantage of social media and are leveraging it to build their brand, keep customer satisfaction high, and even to make direct sales. Business goals can be made or broken with social media. This discovery is rocking the business world. Let’s look at how this is happening – then we’ll look at how you can use this discovery to profit.

How a busted guitar and a YouTube video smashed United Airlines’ reputation
On March 31st, 2008, musician Dave Carroll and his band Sons of Maxwell were flying on United Airlines from Halifax, Nova Scotia, to Omaha, Nebraska, via Chicago. While waiting to get off their plane in Chicago, the passenger in the row behind them looked out the window and suddenly cried out … “My goodness, they’re throwing guitars out there!”

To make a long story short, Carroll’s $3,500 Taylor guitar was broken. Every United employee he talked to for a full nine months passed the buck and refused to take responsibility. They used every rule and regulation in the book to pin it on Carroll, even though their employees were witnessed throwing the guitars. Finally, Carroll realized he was in a fight he couldn’t win. The system was stacked against him. So, he went to one place he had real power … He wrote a song and made a YouTube video. Carroll sang his story and played his broken guitar while actors performed a ‘dramatic reinterpretation’ of the United Ground Crew tossing musical instruments around:

Carroll posted his “United Breaks Guitars” video on YouTube on July 6, 2009. CBC News reported it received 150,000 hits its first day. Within four days, the video had been watched half a million times. And, by the time Carroll released a second YouTube video less than two months later, Canada’s National Post newspaper reported that his first video had been viewed over five million times. A quick look at the YouTube video stats show “United Breaks Guitars” has been viewed more than 9.7 million times as of January 2011:

Not only that, it’s been featured on Time.com, MSN.com, and about 249,000 other web pages, according to a recent Google search:

Along the way, United offered payment to fix the guitar, which Carroll declined and asked them to give to charity instead. Though it’s important to note, United only responded to Carroll’s complaint AFTER he started exposing their customer service hijinks to millions of viewers on YouTube and getting coverage in major media outlets.

So, why do I include United’s story of social media disaster?
Well, before we get into how to use social media right (and how that can lead to four streams of income!), I think it’s worth looking at the fundamental power of social media to spread a

message. And, the United story is the perfect demonstration of a message spreading like wildfire through social media. Further, the United story sheds light on another important truth – users are in charge in social media. If one user creates something that other users like, it spreads. Fast. If a customer is treated poorly and they take to YouTube or another network, soon this negative message is worldwide. “United Breaks Guitars” was a huge PR debacle for United Airlines, and likely cost them quite a few musicians as customers. After all, while all airlines may handle your baggage poorly, the next time you’re booking a flight (as a musician) and thinking about bringing along your guitar, you won’t be able to keep yourself from humming the song “United Breaks Guitars.” Heck, I’m even rethinking flying United, with or without a guitar! (PR wasn’t the only problem United faced from Carroll’s video, either. Their already-struggling stock even dropped 10% in the days following the release of the video. This represented a $180 million decrease in the value of United as a company. It’s hard to say how connected these were, though it’s likely the video had at least some impact.) This brings home an important point. In our social, connected world, every customer interaction is critical. Whether your business has a social media presence or not, social media can make an impact. One bad story, told in a creative way, can act like millions of dollars worth of attack ads run against you in traditional media. But, the user pays nothing – they just share it through social media.

What Social Media Popularity Did For Dave Carroll’s Career
Dave Carroll was already doing well as an independent musician before the “United Breaks Guitars” incident. But, after his first video “broke” on YouTube, Carroll’s career skyrocketed. In his last of three videos about the incident, Carroll said he’s “done being mad at United,” because essentially they “broke” his career.

While on the surface their stories seem different, these three (and many others just like them) share certain common traits. These traits — and how you can use them to grow your career using social media — are revealed in How To Make Money As A Social Media Expert.

Others like author Jonathan Fields and wine guru Gary Vaynerchuk have used social media in their own ways to build enviable success.

Now, he’s been featured in many major media outlets, regularly tours North America and beyond, and has even leveraged the incident to create a new career as a public speaker.That’s the power of social media.

Hammer-wielding Virginia “Grandma” sways cable-giant Comcast to use Twitter as a customer service tool
Want to make money using social media? Well then, you need to know what companies are doing RIGHT, too. Like Comcast. The story started when 75-year-old Mona “The Hammer” Shaw did what many Comcast customers only wished they had the guts to do. Monday, August 13, 2007. Shaw had ordered Comcast’s “Triple Play” service, combining phone, cable, and Internet service. The installers didn’t show up. She called to complain and the company sent out a crew … Two days later. The crew left the job half-done. And on Friday, two days after that, they shut off the service she DID have. So, Mona and her husband drove to the local Comcast office and demanded to speak with a manager. They were left on a bench outside in the mid-August heat for two full hours before being told the manager had gone home for the day. The following Monday Mona returned to the Comcast office … This time wielding a claw hammer. BAM! She smashed the customer service rep’s keyboard. BAM! There goes a monitor! BAM! The phone, too! The cops were called, and as they arrived, Mona smashed the phone again! Mona was handcuffed and charged with a misdemeanor crime, even as thousands upon thousands of angry Comcast customers cheered. Then came ComcastMustDie.com. A couple of months later, in October 2007, AdvertisingAge columnist Bob Garfield launched the website ComcastMustDie.com. Touting Shaw’s story, along with his own bad customer service experience, Garfield launched what he controversially called “The Comcast Jihad.” Within two weeks, his site had 680 comments Garfield reported as “expressing abject hatred toward a cable company.”

Being a journalist, Garfield easily turned this into coverage in major media outlets like The New York Times, Good Morning America, Business Week, USA Today, and The Washington Post. It was clear – Comcast’s customer service (and the company as a whole) was in a dire situation.

Comcast’s social media solution. (Take notes!)
Frank Eliason had joined Comcast’s team in September 2007 – just after Mona Shaw’s hammer incident. As a selfprofessed lover of Comcast’s products, he wanted to make the company better. Where others saw customer service disaster, he saw opportunity. So, in early 2008, Frank signed on to Twitter under the name @ComcastCares. Frank found that by searching Twitter for “Comcast,” he could identify complaints customers were having in real time. And, he could tweet a personal message back to the customer to ask how he could help. For messages he couldn’t solve through Twitter, he offered an email address for resolution. And within months, he (and his growing team) handled over 22,000 customer service complaints through Twitter and email. Now, the team is up to 60,000 emails per month. And Comcast’s reputation – especially among these vocal, connected customers – has gained ground fast. This re-thinking of customer service at

A Niche Model For High-Dollar Social Media Consulting
Here’s a little shortcut you can use if you want to quickly start making money as a social media consultant. 1. Learn Comcast’s model for using social media to deliver timely, quality customer service (explained in more detail in How To Make Money As A Social Media Expert)

2. Show potential clients Comcast’s success as proof the model works, and offer to help them create a similar system for their business 3. Negotiate a high-dollar consulting contract involving setting up the system, training employees, and helping them refine the system on an ongoing basis

In 2009, they introduced the Comcast Customer Guarantee, offering a 7-part service promise cable customers previously only dreamed of (and a way to get your money back if you’re not satisfied). They’ve restructured large portions of the company to provide a stronger emphasis on customer experience. And, Frank and his team have turned into social media celebrities. It’s worth noting that on the back of his success, Frank left Comcast and joined Citibank in August 2010. He wanted to start the process all over again. But, you can bet after his success story with Comcast – featured in Business Week, ABC World News, The New York Times, USA Today, The Wall Street Journal, and too many more news outlets to count – that he wrote his own ticket to social media riches when he accepted the position at Citibank. Of course, once you understand social media and how to use it to achieve business goals, you can write your own ticket, too. We’ll cover that in more detail in a minute – including the four profit streams you can create using Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and other social media tools. But first, one more example that’s making savvy direct marketers think twice.

How 1800Flowers makes the cash register ring directly from their Facebook page
I was talking to a copywriter recently who was an admitted skeptic about social media. He said, “Sure, you can get some traffic with social media. And, you can build relationships. But, until you can actually make measurable sales with it, I’m going to stay a skeptic.” Then I told him what 1800Flowers is doing and he said, “Call me a changed man.” Here’s what made him change his mind. At 11:50 a.m. EST on July 8, 2009, 1800Flowers made the first retail transaction through Facebook. They sold a flower arrangement called “Slice of Life,” for $34.99 (see the photo, on the next page):

They added a widget to their Facebook page that allows you to order from 1800Flowers without leaving Facebook. Now all you have to do if you’re checking out 1800Flowers on Facebook is to click on the “Shop” tab and you’re taken directly into what they call their “Facebook Shoplet.” From there, you pick an arrangement, enter your payment and delivery information, and presto – you’ve bought and sent flowers through Facebook! This isn’t replacing 1800Flowers’ phone and online ordering (yet) … Though it’s certainly supplementing their income. They’ve reported interaction rates with the Shoplet as 13X higher than with traditional advertising, and actual sales generated are 41% higher per impression than traditional banner ads. 1800Flowers isn’t alone, either. Pizza companies are putting up ordering widgets on their Facebook pages. Airlines are putting up flight reservation widgets. And, new examples of companies selling directly through social media pop up every day!

An entire business on Facebook?
As these types of shopping widgets become more popular, it’s feasible we’ll see companies whose entire online presence is inside of Facebook or other social media sites. Marketing, customer service, and even order processing will all happen without leaving Facebook. It’s something that’s turning the heads of even the most reluctant direct marketers. And as their heads turn, they’re going to need savvy people like you to help them achieve their business goals through social media.

PART TWO: Make Money Using Social Media

Introducing the 4 steady profit streams you can collect using social media
Okay, okay. So, we’ve addressed the fact that billions are being spent on social media. It’s moving past the phase where it’s a business advantage, to the point where it’s a business essential. And, as closer and closer to 100% of the Internet users log on to social media, companies are following suit.

Now, let’s get to the good stuff – why this means more money for you.
Once you “get” social media, you have multiple opportunities to profit. And, I’ll show you in Part Three of this report how to “get” social media – how within 30 days you can have more social media skills and knowledge than 90-95% of most people in business. Then, with your new social media skills and expertise, you can begin collecting steady profits using social media, taking advantage of these four opportunities …

OPPORTUNITY 1:
Would you like to land ongoing social media consulting contracts worth $2,500 to as much as $12,000 or more per month (plus $300 per hour consulting gigs)? Once you know how to accomplish certain business goals through social media, you can command these fees as a “Social Media Expert.” (And, this can all happen a lot quicker than you might think.)

OPPORTUNITY 2:
Already a successful freelancer? What if you could get your current clients to pay you 10-25% more on your current contracts? Or, an additional $300 per hour to talk with

them about social media strategy? Add these specific social media services to your freelance “menu” and collect profits as your current clients seek your help moving to social media.

OPPORTUNITY 3:
Want more clients for your freelance business? It doesn’t matter if you consult on social media or not, it’s still becoming one of the easiest ways to land new gigs and clients. Easy, that is, once you understand what works.

OPPORTUNITY 4:
This opportunity probably has the biggest upside profit potential. If you have a Money-Making Website or self-publishing project, you can use the same skills you would as a consultant but apply them to increasing your own website traffic and sales. Passive profit streams of $5,700 and more are possible – or you could turn this into your full-time business and collect much more! We’ll look at each in more detail in just a minute. But first, I want to make an important point.

You can profit from as many as three of these opportunities at the same time!
In fact, Nick didn’t think you’d only pick one opportunity when he put them together for How To Make Money As A Social Media Expert. Instead, you get to pick and choose ALL the opportunities that work for you. At a very minimum, every freelancer should start using social media to get clients. And frankly, you should probably use it to grow your Money-Making Website and self-publishing projects, too. (Still unsure what these are, or how to get started? Read more under Opportunity 4.) As Michael Masterson consistently reminds us, creating one or more additional income streams is the only way to get ahead in this or any market. Then, you pick between opportunities 1 and 2 – would you rather be a full-time Social Media Expert, or use Social Media to supplement your current freelance services? Let’s dive in and look at each to help with your decision …

Opportunity Spotlight: High-Dollar Consulting as a Social Media Expert
There are a few social media gurus who’ve been playing the field for years now. The top among them earn into the high six-figures for speaking, teaching, and consulting on social media. But, the demand is far greater than these top gurus can meet. Businesses everywhere are looking for help getting set up on Facebook, Twitter, and other social media sites – then making sure they’re actually using these sites to accomplish specific business goals. What you make and what your contracts look like can vary dramatically. On the low end, we’ve found $2,500-$5,000 per month for a basic service like launching a Facebook Fan Page (including some ongoing content creation) is common. On the high end, up to $12,000 per month for taking over a company’s total social media presence is also common. And remember, you can often manage multiple clients at once – particularly if it’s something like running multiple Facebook Fan Pages at the same time. Plus, as I mentioned before, there are consultants charging upwards of $10,000 per day just to teach social media to corporate executives.

And, simply getting on the phone with a client and talking to them about their social media strategy for one hour (with no follow-up required) is worth a good $300 to many clients.

Because you already have a relationship with these clients, you have an advantage. You can approach your client and tell them, “In addition to all the other good work I’ve been doing for you, I can also help you with social media.” When they decide they need help, you’ll be first on their list to turn to. This provides you an opportunity to expand into social media, leveraging the connections and relationships you’ve already worked so hard to build. Not only that, each project you do for your current clients offers an opportunity to increase your income from social media consulting. When you’re presenting your client with a proposal, why not add an option to include tweets they can send out through Twitter, and updates they can send out through Facebook? Why not include a special offer page they can temporarily add as a tab on their Facebook Fan Page? With just a little thought about how you could use social media to enhance your results, you can add 10-25% to your project fee by layering social media elements on top of what you’re currently doing. This also opens the opportunities to do one-off consulting on social media strategy (you could charge $300 for a one-hour phone strategy session) or bigger social media projects (the $2,500 to $12,000 per month range applies here as well). Section 8 of How To Make Money As A Social Media Expert shows you exactly how to add social media consulting services to your current freelance services. And yes, it accounts for web copywriters, web content writers, web designers, and researchers – and applies equally to other freelancers whose clients are on the Web. Here are just a few of the gems Nick reveals in the program: Why your reputation as a serious web professional could hinge on how quickly you add social media to your offerings (slow movers, beware!) 9 easy questions you can ask to add a social media component to any project The hidden way offering social media services makes your client’s life easier (and why this makes you far more valuable to them) Why it’s even MORE important for content writers to include social media components to their services

That means if you want to get your website to come up near the top of Google, you’re in for a fight. Yes, you should have a website. But, optimizing it for search engines (or paying for it to show up at the top of the ads) isn’t necessarily your best approach for getting clients anymore. (And, by the way – it doesn’t matter if you’re a freelance copywriter, designer, researcher, or even a job-hunter – the techniques I’m about to show you for landing clients and gigs work across the board.) Do this instead. Create your website. Make it the best possible sales message to get clients interested in your services. Then … And this is the important part … Use social media to connect with potential clients and get them interested enough in you to visit your website. In fact, this new process is exactly what many freelancers dream of … A way to get out of coldcalling while still getting a steady stream of new clients. The beauty of it? It takes the selling out of selling yourself. Here’s how it works: 1. Find your ideal clients through Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn Groups, or through whatever other social media site they’re participating in. 2. Start engaging with the conversation they’re already having. Retweet their best tweets. Comment on their fan page. Provide thoughtful and compelling additions to their group discussions. Connect with them as an industry peer through social media. 3. 4. Repeat Step 2 consistently, with many ideal clients. You’ll notice these ideal clients start to pay attention to what you’re doing (because you’re following the directions in How To Make Money As A Social Media Expert). They’ll start to engage in your conversations and get to know you. They’ll also check out your website to get more info on what you do.

5. Be ready, because at any time, this conversation can turn into an inquiry for your services, or an offer for a gig.

Sure, this process looks like the slow way to go. And, to some degree – it is. It’s not quite picking up the phone and selling your services. Though its’ true power comes because it takes advantage of the natural relationship-building power of social media. And, because you’re building a relationship with these clients instead of just selling them, the lifetime value of your new client relationship will be quite high. Of course, a good portion of this will hinge on whether or not you’re using the simple-yetspecific approaches to promoting your services through social media. These “best practices” are covered in full in Section 9 of How To Make Money As A Social Media Expert, including: What your freelance website is missing now (and probably always will be) that means it’s twice as important to promote your services through social media How to use social media to – in just a few days – connect with enough ideal clients to keep you busy for the next year 6 types of influencers to connect with through social media (each has a different way of helping you grow your freelance biz) The single-most effective way to be “interesting” to others on social media (do this right, and you become extremely popular, quickly)

Is Social Media Better Than A Website For Getting Freelance Clients?
This question is tricky.Yes, social media is becoming the preferred way to reach out to clients. Yet, a website still provides the best venue for presenting your sales message online. (Plus, your website is still the best way to show the world your expertise through publishing a blog, articles, and other similar content.) It’s not so much a question of “Which is better?” The question instead is “How can I use both together to gain clients and increase profits for my freelance business quickly, easily, and affordably?”

The answer? How To Make Money As A Social Media Expert. Nick’s program gives you an exact, step-by-step process to follow to promote yourself as an expert and gain freelance clients (and profits!) using social media.

Adding social media into the marketing mix is fast becoming a requirement — and it seems to be even more so for freelancers (at least this is true from what we’re hearing, and we like to think of ourselves as quite connected!).Why not learn to do it right — especially when you can try it risk-free?

Opportunity Spotlight: Use Social Media To Increase Profits From Your Own Projects
Nick Usborne started a revolution with Money-Making Websites. Now freelancers, writers, and others around the world are making anywhere from a few hundred to a few thousand extra dollars a month from creating fun little websites. Nick’s coffee-related site regularly brings in around $5,700 in passive income per month – with spikes as high as $8,500 a month! And, others are having similar success following Nick’s model. And, there’s no customers, no clients, and no selling involved. To create your own Money-Making Website, you set up a simple website around a hobby or topic that interests you. As you write, you’ll think about products that would benefit your readers. So, you link to where your readers can buy these products. Because of the special type of link you use, you collect part of the money your readers spend after clicking the link on your site. Plus, you can make even more money from every visitor by running advertising on your site. Adventurous entrepreneurs are adding self-publishing into the mix, creating a website robust with free content and

The Only Way Left For The Little Guy To Get Rich?
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the income gap between high earners and low earners is now at the highest level on record … And continues to widen.

If you want to get ahead — even get rich — a regular job just doesn’t cut it anymore. You have to create additional income streams, even one or more businesses.

Two of our favorite options for writers and others are Money-Making Websites and self-publishing projects. These provide you the option to make thousands of dollars per month in spare-time profits, or even create six-figure businesses from your home. When you place your order for How To Make Money As A Social Media Expert, you’ll also have the option to order the AWAI programs How to Write Your Own Money-Making Websites and Self Publishing: Your Complete Business Plan for Creating a Life Without Borders using simple check-boxes on the order form. If you haven’t yet started your Money-Making Websites or self-publishing projects for the additional income they can bring you, we recommend you do so now.

supplementing it by selling e-books, programs and courses, teleseminars, webinars, and a whole host of other paid content. Either way, you can increase profits by getting more targeted visitors to your website. And, that’s where social media comes in. You can use the same social media skills you develop for consulting with clients and promoting your freelance business to promote your Money-Making Websites and self-publishing projects. After adding social media to his Money-Making Website, Nick now gets about 50% of his visitors every month through Twitter, Facebook and other social media. (This means he’s probably about doubled his monthly passive income from adding social media.) Nick promotes the site through special social media profiles he’s set up. His connections and website visitors promote his site through their own social media profiles and networks. The reach he’s obtained through social media would cost hundreds, even thousands of dollars per month through traditional advertising. But, it’s costing him just a little time, and that’s all. Using what you learn in Section 10 of How To Make Money As A Social Media Expert, you can copy what Nick is doing to create more passive income and profits for yourself. Some of the lessons that jumped out at me (that would take too much room to cover here) are: One big question, answered: When to (and when not to) create separate social media accounts for your Money-Making Websites and self-publishing projects How to blur the lines between your website and social media presence – and increase reader engagement, sharing, traffic, and profits as a result How to optimize your site for social media – with or without a blog The hidden social media multiplier – this piles influence upon influence through your social media network (and can increase your site traffic exponentially) The “other” media you can put on your Money-Making Website that turns you into a social media traffic magnet A surprising productivity tool that social media users LOVE to share (every time they do, that’s another potential visitor for your site!)

Yes, I know there’s a lot of hype around social media. Frankly, there are echoes of the “dot com” era when it seemed like any unprofitable company with a website was getting millions in investment capital – now the same thing has happened in social media.

Part Three shows you how to turn off all the hype and noise – so you have the clearest path to achieving business results and lasting social media success. So, let’s turn YOU into a social media expert …

PART THREE: Make Money Using Social Media

Your shortest path to becoming a Social Media Expert
Here’s where the rubber meets the road. If you want to make serious profits using social media … From $2,500 to $12,000 a month as a consultant, and $5,700 or more in passive income by adding it to your personal projects … Then you have to learn how to use social media to accomplish business results. And, who knows? With a little experience, you could become one of those consultants making upwards of $10K a day just to teach social media to business executives. But, what’s it going to take? We found one college offering a 60-week program for an Associate degree in social media marketing (that’s 90 semester units at their current tuition) We found another offering a 48-week, $6,200 Master’s program Another added it as a specialty to their MBA program, requiring you to take a yearand-a-half out of your life (attending full-time) to begin establishing yourself as a social media professional But, you can ignore these costs and time commitments – it’s not going to cost you that much or take you that long. In fact, in the pages of How To Make Money As A Social Media Expert, web writing and marketing expert Nick Usborne lays out a step-by-step process you can take to …

Become A Social Media Expert In As Little As 30 Days
If you’ll set aside just 20-30 minutes each day for the next 30 days as you go through the program, you’ll have more social media skills and expertise than 90-95% of people in business within a month. (And, probably more real-world knowledge than most people coming out of those degree programs!) This doesn’t mean you should go from nothing to calling yourself an expert in 30 days. But, within those 30 days, you’ll be building social media skills and expertise that you can use to start accomplishing business goals using social media. Then, as you start to apply these skills for your clients and in your personal projects, you’ll have real results to show. (The great thing about this is if you can follow the system, you can get the results!) And, the results you get for clients will earn you the “expert” reputation – without you ever having to call yourself one.

This Unlocks The Four Profit Streams
With your newfound expertise, you’ll be able to use social media to begin collecting your share of the multi-billion dollar social media pie, using one or more of these four profit streams: 1. Earn as much as $12,000 per month as a Social Media Expert consultant 2. Add 10-25% to your current freelance fees by adding social media elements 3. Land your ideal freelance clients easily using social media 4. Create $5,700 or more in side-income adding social media to your personal projects

I’ve probably missed a few – but once you know even these, you’ll be able to sit down with a client (at a rate of $300 per hour) and dazzle them as you show them exactly what they need to do to accomplish their business goals with social media. Then, of course, you can offer to do it for them – and land large, ongoing projects where you create social media success for your clients simply by following along with what you’ve learned in How To Make Money As A Social Media Expert.

Because you’ll be able to apply what you learn and start earning quicker, I suppose we could justify charging as much or more than the colleges charge for How To Make Money As A Social Media Expert. But, we won’t charge you $6,200 or even half that. Instead, How To Make Money As A Social Media Expert is available for a simple one-time investment of $499. That’s all it takes to start landing those $2,500 to $12,000 per month consulting contracts, the $300 an hour one-off consulting gigs, and building passive income streams of $5,700 and more using social media. Frankly, following the 30-day plan of 20-30 minutes a day going through the program and applying what you learn … You could land your first contract, get a new freelancing gig, or create a social media traffic spike to your current website that pays back the cost of the program in under 30 days.

Here is what he said … “Social media is moving so fast. When people buy the program, I want to be sure they also get access to what’s new … what’s happening this month, and next month. One month, we’ll maybe look at some new services or tools that have just been launched. Another month we could look at trends, or evolving best practices. “In addition, I want to create a place and time where people can ask me questions, live, as part of a group.

6. How much can I make? Like many other consulting arrangements, the amount you make is mostly limited by your imagination. Common fees though range from $2,500to $12,000 as a monthly retainer on big projects, plus $300 per hour for one-off consulting. Add social media to your personal projects, too, and you can create additional income of $5,700 and more through Money-Making Websites and self-publishing.

7. What industries and niches are hiring? Social media is the new business requirement.This means in just about every industry and niche, businesses are moving to social media and looking for help to do it right.Though within How To Make Money As A Social Media Expert, Nick lists a handful of industries actively developing their social media strategies, that are already spending plenty on freelancers as well. 8. If I start now, where will I be in one year? Five years? Social media is only growing. Soon, nearly 100% of Internet users will be on social media, based on current trends.With that audience at stake, businesses will only be increasing their presence and investment in social media. In one year, you may be able to replace your current income using the four social media profit streams. In five years, the demand for your services may be well beyond what you can keep up with. Because social media is becoming so integrated into everything online, the long-term prospects for Social Media Experts are glowing.

9. Why should I jump in now?
