Are you stressing out about money? Don’t be. You’ve already got everything you need to make it. No, it is not some miraculous craft. It is your talent. If you think that you don’t have any, write down all the things you’re great at. It can be something as common as organizing things, baking or even storytelling. With groupado, you can turn your hobby or skills into experiences and make money by doing what you love. Eager to learn the ropes? Keep reading.
Let’s say you are excellent at organizing things around you. This skill brings you four cool experiences: sorting waste, packing your suitcase like a pro, sorting laundry, and organizing your workspace. And presto! These can be your groupado experiences.
Or imagine that you are a remarkable storyteller, and you love being around children. In this case, your skills can turn into the following experiences:
– how to create your own stories and fairy tales
– how to help children fall asleep quickly with a bedtime story
– how to use storytelling to teach children to be kind and caring
– how to teach children to write their own fantasy tales.
See? It’s as easy as pie.
We hypothesize that every person has at least five talents that could be turned into 20 experiences on groupado. Ideas are just floating in the air; all you need to do is bring them to groupado and start earning money by doing what you’re best at.
How to Start
Starting out might seem like the hardest part. But don’t get discouraged. Start simple by deciding what your first groupado experience will be. It can be an event, an activity, a course, or a workshop. Once you make up your mind, take the following steps to start earning money by enjoying your pastime.
Step 1. Sign Up
The starting point is groupado.com. Visit our website and click on “Create an Experience.” You’ll see a quick guide with the basic rules and quality standards, and you’ll be offered a swift sign in with Facebook or Gmail or an email sign up.
Step 2. Create Your Experience
The next step you need to take is to register your experience on groupado. First, you have to add basic info such as location, category of your experience (a drop-down list will help you here), and a group type (public for the entire groupado community or private to invite specific guests only).
Groupado provides useful recommendations on how to make your event appealing and sought-after. All you need to do is to think of a catchy title, add experience image, and describe it by adding useful details and restrictions (if any). Finally, you have to list the things that you will provide for the experience and specify what your guests should bring.
Once you add the details such as location, date and time, the maximum number of participants, price, and refund options, you have to submit the verification info (e.g., your user ID scan) and wait for your experience to be approved by groupado.
Step 3. Spread the Word
Once your experience is approved, tell your social media followers about the groupado event you’re going to host and wait for people to start signing up for your activity. You can also invite your friends or colleagues to groupado to become a creator. When they create their own experience, you earn some extra cash as a referral bonus. That’s some powerful word of mouth.
Step 4. Do What you Love and Earn Money
The last step is to host your event. This is actually the most fascinating part when you teach like-minded people what you can do really well. Hosting your own event or workshop for the first time can be scary, but it is also an exciting and rewarding experience. Once you do it, you’ll see the perks.
What People Will Pay For
Are you worried that no one will pay for your experience? Don’t worry: people are ready to pay for all kinds of useful experiences. It doesn’t necessarily need to be some hobby sharing workshop like painting or sewing classes. Perhaps you’re good at doing some routine tasks or everyday things, and you don’t think too much about it, but other people struggle with that and would be happy to tap into your expertise.
We asked our users about this topic and received some great insights.
Linda, 25 “I fly a lot due to the specifics of my work. Every time I travel, my suitcase is a mess. I’d pay someone who could teach me the hacks of packing my suitcase so that I could only take carry-on luggage.”
Jason, 12 “Middle school sucks. I’d pay $30 to someone who’d teach me to stand up for myself.”
Sara, 29 “I’d pay someone who would teach me to make a soufflé, even in my own kitchen. My son loves them.”
Michael, 19 “I just bought a camera and would like to learn some basic stuff about taking good photos. My girlfriend would be thrilled about that.”
Being good at embroidering, yoga, dancing, putting together a wardrobe, or other common things that you are doing with ease and pleasure gives you a chance to earn money by sharing your skills and know-how with others. All you need to do is to believe in yourself, register your experience on groupado, and reap the benefits.
Connecting the Dots
Life brings a whole lot of experiences. There is no need to reinvent the wheel: just start teaching people what you do best, sharing your skills with others. Take the risk, be calm, happy, and turn your hobbies into income on groupado.
