What if I told you that you could monetize your talent to earn a living and fulfill your purpose? Yes, you heard me right! Well, OPENSPACE hosted yet another candid zoom huddle live convo on the 26th of June, 2020 moderated by Kobina Biney and Carita Aryee to share tips and tricks on how to make money from your talent.
Both our moderators and community shared their insights and here are a few tips derived from the unquantifiable contributions that will serve as a learning tool for us all.
Identify your talent and improve it into a skill
Find a problem. Gera your talent towards that problem. Sell based on the problem you solve, not on your talent.
Brand-building. Build a sustainable brand with integrity and credibility.
Advertise and build partnerships. Promote yourself on social media and partner with other brands to broaden your knowledge and skill base. This will help increase your audience.
Stay consistent and relevant by updating your community on your growth and progress.
Lastly, Price your skill to keep your work sustainable but also competitive.
