Many people are making money from selling info products online. The main problem with that is that there’s already too much competition. Especially if you are a beginner. Everyone is selling the same stuff. For example, eBooks, reports, and videos. So, if you choose any of the popular products, you will have a lot of competitors.
What people don’t realize, however, is that they can make tons of money from selling graphics.
The best part is that you don’t even have to create the graphics yourself. You can outsource the work and earn extra cash.
Today I will show you how to profit from graphics you don’t create.
Choose the type of graphics you want
The first thing you need to do before starting your project is to decide what sort of graphics you need. What kind of graphics do you want to focus on and who are you selling them to?
You can either pick a niche and focus on it or cover various niches. If you choose one niche, create a collection of relevant graphics and make sure they benefit your market.
If you want to cover various niches, you have to create a variety of graphics to accommodate different niches.
Your choice depends on your needs, your target market, and your goals.
Decide whether you want to focus on one specific niche or various niches. Conduct market research and understand your target audience.
It’s advisable to focus on one niche for a start and add various niches as you go. Do adequate research and create a package of graphics for that particular audience.
If you aren’t sure of what to sell, use the following graphics ideas:
• Sales page templates
• eBook covers
• Printable flyer graphics
• Kindle covers
• Webpage templates
• Facebook graphics
• Pinterest graphics
• Sales page doodles
Find a freelancer
Now that you know what sort of graphics you want and who to sell them to, create the graphics.
Remember when we started, I said you don’t have to create them yourself. So, outsource the work.
Find and hire reputable freelancers on Upwork, Fiverr, or Guru.
Work with the right freelancer and make sure your designer creates legal graphics to avoid getting into a legal battle.
Search for a reputable graphic designer on Google, previously mentioned freelancing sites, and marketplaces like Amazon.
Search for ‘Freelance graphic designer’ and ‘Graphic designer.’ Then find out if the designer offers the type of services you want.
Another option is to post your project on reputable freelancing sites like www.upwork.com
Explain what sort of work you want, what you expect from the freelancer, and how much you are offering.
Many freelancers will place their bids. So, make sure you work with the right person to avoid frustrations.
Research the freelancer
Choose freelancers who followed your instructions when placing their bids.
List down at least 6 freelancers and research them.
Look at the freelancer’s portfolio and rates. Read client testimonials and make sure the freelancer has a good reputation.
Find the contact details and communicate with all of your potential employees.
Choose your outsourcer based on your goals, the freelancer’s credentials, the quality of work, and client reviews.
You can also hire more than one freelancer if you choose. Especially if you want to create a lot of graphics within a short period.
Provide a project brief
Once you pick your freelancer, provide a detailed project brief to ensure the job gets done right.
The freelancer already has an idea of what you want. However, you should provide a detailed brief in addition to the one you gave when posting the job. This makes it easy for the outsourcer to understand your needs and meet your expectations.
Note that some freelancers will provide you with a questionnaire that helps them understand your project better.
However, if they don’t, make sure your project brief includes the following:
• A detailed description of the project
• A description of the graphics you want. For example, graphic sizes, colors, and whether or not you want the content to be editable
• Delivery time
Make sure the designer creates legal graphics to avoid lawsuits and copyright issues.
Create a contract and make sure you and the designer sign it.
