Responding to Whatsapp messages is a nightmare for many small business owners, especially the ones with loads of customers or clients. And some don’t have the time to handle their WhatsApp account due to workload. So they prefer to pay people to do this for them.
For instance, for those teaching various digital courses, they have multiple Whatsapp groups for their students. Managing the audience and classes is usually cumbersome for them. This is where you come in. You can help the person organise the whole process and handle the group. You can also use the WhatsApp application called WAmation.
Many business owners don’t know how to close sales either because they don’t have the time or are swamped. Why not render services to these business owners and make your own money.
Sales closing is the ability to convince and persuade prospective customers to agree and commit to a deal. By doing this, the business owner makes more revenue, and you take a cut too.
All you have to do is to convert people into customers. For instance, an online business owner will have to attend to every direct message (DM) from customers who want to make enquiries or patronise the business. This tends to be stressful at times. Your job is to attend to these customers and ensure that the people who make enquiries are converted into customers.
Also, you do a follow-up and convert people that come into the page to either just like or make a comment. Your work is just to convert online people to customers. In this type of work, you control the amount you get. This is because you can base your work on percentages. So for every sale you close, you get a certain percentage.
Social listeners specialise in getting first-hand information before it gets to the public. If you have access to exclusive information before it gets to the public, you can monetise this.
Some brands use this information to boost their business. For instance, having an influencer or a renowned person using a particular brand will increase sales for the specific brand.
If sourcing valuable information is easy for you, why not monetise this by giving firsthand information to a business owner. For every new piece of information, you get a percentage.
