Notes from Chris

Episode 428

Today we have a listener voicemail from Nick and a listener email from Zach:

  • Nick was recently asked by a client to help them out with SEO for videos that he's created for them, but he doesn't have much experience doing something like this specifically for video content. How do you create with SEO in mind for content that may be a bit different?

  • Zach: "I've found blogs with Amazon affiliate links similar to what I want to do. But they do not rank very well in google for people searching for what I hope to help with. How do I create content that will rank well so people can find what I create?"
It’s certainly possible to do that and indeed a lot of folks have done so. It's just harder than something that's strictly online, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't do it. If it's right for you and you can handle it, don't let anyone dissuade you.

If you can be dissuaded or for anyone else out there wondering about this, listen to the Weekly Recap to learn more!

If you have something you'd like to ask me or an update you'd like to share, I'd love to hear from you. Leave me a voice message on the website or call into the Side Hustle Hotline (Dial 844-9-HUSTLE // 844-948-7853), and your question may be featured on the show!


Here's what we heard this week on Side Hustle School! Listen to this week's recap for a more comprehensive highlight reel.

  • Ep. 422 - A California-based professional uses her autoimmune disease to learn about healthy performance food, creating two businesses in the process
  • Ep. 423 - When a young woodworker receives a wooden bow tie as a gift, he’s unimpressed. After making his own, he earns $20,000 while going to high school full-time
  • Ep. 424 - A freelance graphic designer turns his work research into a gold mine
  • Ep. 425 - A full-time marketing director and MBA student writes to every single TEDx events in hopes of getting his first gig. He now earns $30,000 year on the side, speaking at events around the world
  • Ep. 426 - After being unimpressed by a lackluster wedding photo booth, a New York couple studies up and enters the market on their own
  • Ep. 427 - A New York-based yoga enthusiast starts a socially-conscious clothing line for kids under six
Inspiration is good; inspiration combined with action is better. Now get back to work!

Yours in the revolution,

We've already launched our first iteration of the Side Hustle Society, and if you missed round one, round two is going on through Tuesday night!

This online training program is designed to take you step by step through starting a side hustle project of your own, and it's also going to be an online community where you can connect with other side hustlers, make introductions, and get peer feedback.

Round two is open and will end this upcoming Tuesday, so visit our Society page if you're interested in being a part of a strong and supportive side hustle community!

Here's what's coming up next...

Each week I'll feature more stories from people who are starting side hustles without quitting their job. Here's a sneak peek of what's coming next week:

  • A passionate choir teacher on a limited budget discovers an untapped market
  • A Mississippi husband-and-wife duo keeps things sweet and make $15,000/year on the side selling homemade cinnamon rolls
  • And so much more!
