High income skills have never been more important than they are right now. Consider the scenario; you’ve lost your job, you don’t know when your next paycheck will hit your bank account and worst of all it seems that absolutely nobody is hiring. Sound familiar? The COVID-19 pandemic has introduced uncertainty to countless lives across the world. In fact, the amount of people out of work in the UK alone is predicted to reach 2.6 million by the middle of 2021. Businesses have been forced to close, workers made redundant and many people are now facing an uncertain future. If you have access to a perfectly nurtured money tree, eager to shower you with fresh fifty-pound notes at will, you’re going to be fine, but if you’re one of the 25 million people in the UK that live paycheck to paycheck, chances are, it’s going to be a different story.
High Income Skills – A Break From The Norm
From an early age, we’re taught a standard roadmap of life. We’re shown that you need to do well in class, get good grades, and be accepted into a good university whilst paying upwards of thirty thousand pounds for the privilege. Then you take your qualifications, get a good job and work all of the hours under the sun for a mostly uninspiring monthly deposit into your bank account. On the outset, this may sound plausible, but with skyrocketing living costs and stagnant wages, living like this is at best silly and at worst dangerous. The fact of the matter is you are never going to realise true financial freedom or develop an acceptable work life balance by exchanging time for money. Nor are you going to have a safety net if something bad should happen, you know, like a global pandemic? It’s time for a better solution.
High income skills are that solution. These are in demand skills that you can provide to businesses and individuals whilst creating financial security. They add value to people’s lives, to the extent that they are willing to pay a premium for them. As a result, you can free yourself from money worries, achieve personal goals and realise a better and brighter future. The best thing is, owing to the fact that the need for high value skills is a global one, they are not location restricted, meaning you can literally work from anywhere and develop a healthier work life balance.
The High-Income Skills You Didn’t Realise You Had
The great thing about high income skills is that most of the time, we don’t even know we have them. In fact, it can be a revelation when a business mentor & life coach such as David Wyatt, sits you down and shows you skills you didn’t know you had. The bottom line is, if you’re good at something and there’s enough demand in the market, you could be using your newly found skills to exchange value. These include:
This is all the online activity that a business does (or should do) in order to grow awareness, drive traffic and make sales. It includes online advertising, search engine optimization (SEO), content marketing and email marketing. Right now, almost 60 percent of the world’s population is online and company owners are fast realising that if they’re not taking digital marketing seriously, they are destined to fail. The trouble is, to stand out from the crowd you need to be a great digital marketer and many businesses just don’t have the skillset required. Not only that, but optimising and growing communities on platforms such as Facebook and Twitter can take a lot of time, time that stretched businesses navigating the biggest economic crisis in decades just don’t have. If you are able to offer that time along with the right know-how and expertise, you have yourself a high-income skill. Prove that you can help these companies make more money than ever before and they will soon realise that you are invaluable asset; one which they will be willing to pay very handsomely for.
As with digital marketing, copywriting helps companies grow and increases revenue. It is the subtle art of persuasion; the skill of selling through text. Digital-savvy businesses need copywriters to write powerful messages via emails, sales letters, social media posts, direct mail and product descriptions. In order to have the biggest impact and drive sales, these messages need to be crafted and optimised. Now, before you rush out with your notepad and pencil case and start offering your services to every business in the phone book, you should know that to be successful in copywriting, you need to be very good. You need impeccable grammar, the ability to tell a story and the know-how of making every word count. In essence, you need to be a wordsmith. That said, once you’ve mastered this high-income skill, you can quickly start adding value to countless businesses around the world and quite literally, change your life.
Have you ever heard the term ‘knowledge is power?’ Well, in the business world, it couldn’t be truer. The most successful athletes, the wealthiest businesspeople and the most remembered world leaders have all used the services of a mentor at some point in their lives and careers. As individuals, we’re not born with infinite knowledge, so in order to be successful in our fields, we need to learn from those that have gone before. We need to learn the right and wrong ways of doing things and understand what we cannot yet grasp. If you have expert knowledge in a particular field, there will be individuals and companies across the world that will be willing to pay for what is in your brain. The reason? You can help them grow and reach their goals faster than they would be able to on their own. Knowledge isn’t just power, it is also incredibly valuable and if you have it, you really should be capitalising on it.
Finally, one of the most valuable high-income skills in business is the ability to close sales. This is the process of looking for opportunities, following up, building relationships and making a transaction happen. When you think about it, closing is a skill that every successful person will need to master at some point in their lives. From having someone offer you a dream job, negotiating a pay rise, or completing on house at a price to suit you. In order to make any of these things happen, you need to be able to close sales. If you’ve mastered this high-income skill, you will find that businesses and individuals will pay a premium in return for you driving sales and commissions. The great news is this high-income skill also goes hand in hand with any other skillsets that you may want to utilise. If you’re a digital marketing expert for example, finding leads, nurturing relationships and closing sales will only put you in good stead to growing your income and personal success.
Let David Wyatt help you find your High-Income Skill
Of course, these are only three of many high-income skills that you could start to take advantage of. You might be amazed at the ever-increasing list of skills businesses and individuals around the world are in desperate need of. Remember, that skills are different to work. When we think of work, we tend to think of working long hours to do things we don’t necessarily enjoy in order to pay the bills. High income skills, however, afford us the possibility of getting paid a premium to do things we enjoy doing very well.
