I launched my own business more than a year ago, helping businesses and organizations use social media. Since then, dozens of people have asked me how I do it. How do I get clients? How much do I charge? How do I juggle my side biz with my day job?
Some of those questions stem from sheer curiosity, but other inquirers have an agenda: They, too, want to earn money with their social media skills. Which is awesome, because there’s a huge demand for this type of service.
Today I’m answering those questions with the launch of my first-ever e-guide:
In this 60-page guide, you’ll learn how I earn $2,000 a month as a social-media freelancer, in addition to my day job (and what I do with that money). And you’ll learn how you can do it, too.
To be successful, you’ve got to be on top of the social media game already. If you’re not savvy with social media, this guide is not for you. (But don’t worry, I’ll launch other products for social-media newbies!)
At $24, my social media biz guide is priced lower than other informational guides on the market, ones that sell for $37, $49, $58 or $97. Why? Because it’s my first launch, somewhat of a test case. And because I want it to be affordable for anyone who’s interested, especially since my goal with this guide is to help you make money. Plus, $24 is a drop in the bucket if you think about how much you could earn in a year or even a month following this advice.
Now, most of the readers of this blog will not want this guide. And that’s totally cool! This is a way for me to make money off my work here and still offer free content — without altering that content or cluttering up this space with Google advertisements. Even if you’re not interested, you can help out by sharing this post on Facebook or Twitter or sending the link to a friend who might be interested.

When you start racking in clients, I hope you’ll come back and tell us about it!
While we’re on the subject of social media, I have bandwidth for another client! If you know a company or organization that needs help with blog strategy/content or social media, I hope you’ll get in touch.

Congrats Lexi! I’m so excited for you and extremely proud of you and how much you’ve accomplished this year!
Aw thanks, Jess. That made me smile 🙂 Right back at you!
Congrats!! This is such a great resource. I have no doubt people will find it tremendously valuable!
Congratulations! You rock!
Nice work on the e-guide. Your information here has always been so helpful and top-notch. You’re rocking it!
Congrats, Alexis! I hope this takes off for you, and kudos on your competitive pricing.
I have a question…when do you know if you have crossed the line from being a social media newbie? I don’t feel like I am one (I started using AIM over ten years ago! ha!), and I have a personal Facebook page, Facebook fan page, blog, Twitter, Skype, know how to use gchat and Google documents…so my question is, am I ready for your book? 🙂 I have applied for a few social media jobs that I have found on job boards but would really like to start a side biz on my own, so your book sounds ideal. Just want to make sure I am not getting ahead of myself! Thanks!
Hey Shawndra — Good question. I think the key is to recognize that there’s a difference between using social media personally and building a brand for a business. But as long as you understand that and can think through how to make it work, you’re probably good to go. I actually talk about this in the e-guide — that you’re probably more prepared to do this than you think. I also offer ideas about how to get into it while you’re learning, by, for example, volunteering to build an online community for a non-profit organization that needs your help. Dip your foot into the water, see how you feel, and make decisions from there. Doesn’t hurt to start small!
What a great idea for an ebook, Alexis. Congratulations.
