A week ago I was trading blog posts with David Rachford about accountants marketing their professional services using MySpace. The discussion had resulted in both of us signing up with the mega-popular site in an effort to understand the potential opportunities.
We all have something valuable to say. Whether you’re an accountant, a computer expert, a blogger, or a good gossiper, you can earn money selling what you say to others over the phone or through email.
Sounds like an interesting use for the new web. The step-by-step details:
- You sign up on the site and set up an Ether phone number.
- You set a price for your services, either per the hour or the minute.
- You decide when you want to take calls.
- Then you market your Ether phone number and people give you a call when they want to pay you for your knowledge.
Sounds pretty cool actually, and although I can’t see myself building a career out of something like this, I could see someone with some basic accounting knowledge (a bookkeeper, perhaps) selling it to those who need the information.
What do you think?
