The wonderful thing about the internet these days is that it allows people to use their experience and expertise to make money online. Whatever it is that you know well will have an audience of people who are willing to pay money to learn from you. It could be cooking, programming, or, yes, even real estate.
If you have been wondering how to make money with a real estate license but not necessarily by doing showings, then you need to turn your attention to the internet. It won’t be easy to get things started and will take time, but when you get things going it can be a great way to make money. Even if you do this in addition to your regular duties as a real estate agent.
In this article, we will go over several of the ways that you can use the internet to your advantage and make money.
Offer online courses
Potential real estate brokers are all hungry for information. They are eagerly scouring the internet for information on how to pass the exam as well as tips to make more money as a broker.
This presents a very good opportunity for you to offer some online courses that will help them achieve their dreams. Use your knowledge of the exam or the tips that nobody told you about to make money as a real estate agent by starting some video courses.
Rather than hold courses live and in person, doing them online makes it easy for anybody to sign up since they can do them at their own pace. This opens up the possibility for more money as the people can be anywhere and not just where they would be able to drive to your classes.
The other benefit is that they will earn you passive money. Once the courses are done, they continue to make money. When you do them in person, you stop getting paid as soon as you finish the last lesson.
A blog is a fantastic way to make money these days and your knowledge is going to provide a lot of useful content for readers. There are several ways to go about making money from a blog. The best way is to use it to bring in people and funnel them to an online course like was mentioned in the last section.
Then, you can make money from ads on the site. Ads pay very well for the real estate niche as there are people spending a lot of money there so advertisers are keen to get their ads on websites with good traffic.
There is also the possibility of sponsorships with brands. You could be paid by a real estate conference to write an article about attending one of their conferences, for example, and make quite a bit of money per post. When you have a lot of traffic you can approach companies and pitch a pay-per-post scenario.
