Copywriting (High Income Skill)
Copywriting is incredibly valuable – if not the most valuable skill you can possess. What makes copywriting so valuable goes beyond simply writing
Copywriters are the handsome, good-smelling men and women just like you who create fresh written content for advertising, marketing, and descriptive texts. Copywriters can write more creative text, like ad jingles, taglines, and other creative copy, or more research-based copy, like a job description on a website.
Think of a time you wanted to purchase a particular item/product online. The first thing you do is, either you go on youtube to see some review on the products you want to purchase, or you simply log on to google to read some amazing review that magnifies the features and benefits of the product. Such is copywriting.
Different types of copywriting includes;
- Marketing Pieces.
- Web Content.
- Event Materials.
- Resume and Cover Letter Writing.
- Biographies and Memoirs.
- Sales/Annual Reports.
- Curriculum/Educational Writing.
The beauty of this skill is that, once you master the art of copywriting, there is no limit to what you earn. And also, you are not restricted to a location- work from anywhere in the world. haha!
Basically, digital marketing refers to any online marketing efforts. Unlike the traditional way of marketing, going door to door, giving out flyers, putting ads on billboards and all which might be very ineffective during times like these due to the fact that everyone is placed on a mandatory lockdown for the safety of all.
So what business will stay relevant during this trying times? You got it.
Those that embrace digital marketing. Recent stats shows about 75% increase in internet usage during this COVID- 19 lockdown. Helping businesses bring their business online might be a very great move because a lot lot of people are sure to see your ads.

Growing & Managing Social Media Pages
This particular skill could earn you a couple of thousands of dollars weekly. Got some friends at a Growviral.net doing a great job growing social media pages, selling and also managing some pages for businesses.
As simple as this might look, starting out requires some sort of dedication and hard work. But once you get it right, you become unstoppable. It becomes part of you.
Pages you can learn to grow are;
- Facebook pages
- Instagram accounts
- Facebook groups
- Twitter accounts

Once you get this right, you can start printing your own money right from your smartphone and your laptop. Oh yea, with the help of Internet. Lol!
Affiliate marketing is the process by which an affiliate (you) earns a commission for marketing another person’s or company’s products. The affiliate (you) simply searches for a product they enjoy, then promotes that product and earns a piece of the profit from each sale they make.
For every product you promote, a unique link is generated for you. This helps the publisher track every activity that happens with the link, especially when you get a conversion so that your commission can be delivered to you. You don’t have to buy the product before you can promote them in most cases.
See affiliate marketing like; you bought a shoe from X store, and your friends like the shoe and they really want to know where you got it from. All you have to do is, meet the store and get a unique link from them and give to your friends. This way you get a commission per every one of them that makes a purchase through your link.

Building Sales Funnel
A sales funnel is a marketing concept that maps out the journey a customer goes through when making any kind of purchase. The model uses a funnel as an analogy because a large number of potential customers may begin at the top-end of the sales process, but only a fraction of these people actually end up making a purchase.
Truth be told, funnel building is way beyond how I described it.
To actually learn how to build effective funnels will require YEARS of trial and error before you figure out how this whole thing works.
But at the end of the day, Funnel Building is one of the ultimate high income skills because with it, you’ll literally learn how to print money.

Bonus – Master The Art Of Selling
When people think or hear about selling, they think it’s all about running up and down on the street chasing a lead here and there, but, Nah!
That’s not it.
Yes, there are some slimy, sleazy salespeople out there. Because of that, sometimes sales gets a bad rap.
But is selling really evil?
The bottom line is that a good salesperson can truly make an incredible difference in the world by getting people to take action and invest in ways that improve their lives.
Not only that but learning how to sell your skills can earn you an excellent income.
In fact, one of my favorite marketing thought leaders in the world, Russell Brunson, leveraged sales to become the highest-paid speaker in the world — with his net take home as a speaker being $1,000,000 per hour.
Now that you have access to all this information. What are you going to do with them? Sit back cross your leg and get back to netflix, come out of the lockdown pretty much the same way you got in there? I guess not!
Master these high-income skills, and you will no longer be confined by the barriers holding you back from earning a high income.
