Time to hire a Virtual Assistant? Here’s how to find the perfect VA

Growing your side hustle takes a lot of work, dedication, and time. But honestly, a lot of that time is spent on stuff that, while important, is not very glamorous.

So, why not let someone else do the menial tasks for you instead? That’s what we’ll talk about in this week’s newsletter.

When you are trying to start a business on your own you’ll probably want to do everything by yourself. The whole point of a side hustle is being your own boss, right? Well, turns out doing everything solo can easily have you end up as your own employee.

I used to spend hours micromanaging every aspect of my project. And before I realized it, what should have brought me freedom was eating up all my time. Worse than that, my hustle wasn’t even growing like I wanted because I couldn’t focus on its key aspects.

Discover the Best Cheap Marketing Channels

Discover the Best Cheap Marketing Channels

For a hustle to really take off, you need either a lot of dumb luck or an effective marketing strategy.

Sure, you might have the best thing since sliced bread in your hands, but if nobody hears about it, who’s going to buy it?

If you are like me when I started, you might have a limited budget, and marketing can cost a lot. Luckily for us, there are a lot of great marketing channels out there that either won’t cost you much or are entirely free!

But cheap or free don’t come without downsides. I’ve tried pretty much every channel out there, and while you can achieve a lot of success, your mileage may vary. In order to get the most out of these channels, you have to put in the work.

Inside this newsletter we’ve brought you the research so you can choose the cheap marketing channel that fits your hustle best.

Using Instagram Reels to Market your Side Hustle

Using Instagram Reels to Market Your Side Hustle

A side hustle can live or die by the way it engages with social media channels and platforms.

After all, for a business to grow you have to meet people where they are. But just making an account and posting away won’t do you much good. You have to know what type of content people AND the platform you are using want.

Take my experience with Instagram, for example.

The first time I tried making an effective Instagram account for a side hustle, I found that I wasn’t getting a lot of engagement even when I followed all the best practices I knew.

The reason? I wasn’t following Instagram’s game.

You see, for your account to really take off you have to play along with the IG algorithm.

And for Instagram, that’s their famous reels. Once you start getting in on the reel game, you’ll see exactly how effective they can be!

Inside this newsletter, we’ll go over why and how you should make Instagram Reels.

Do You Need a Minimal Viable Product (MVP)?

How do you know if your business idea will be a winner?

We often get lost in the process of building the perfect product without first getting validation from the market.

I’ve been there myself. You get blinders on and ignore the advice to test your idea.

To really build your hustle from the ground up, you need to show people the most basic form of your product. And I don’t just mean physical products.

Any idea has a basic form – from a blog to a motor vehicle. People need to understand what you are trying to do at its core. The value of your project, idea, or product. And the way to do that is by building a minimum viable product – an MVP.

That’s what we’ll look at in this newsletter.

But is this the real deal? Or just a waste of time? Let’s take a look at their platform to discover the answer.
