The side Hustle that took You From $15/hr to $100k/Year

So, one of the first real jobs that I had outside of college was a job that paid me $15 after one hour. It did not take me long to realize that staying at this job wasn’t really going to help me get anywhere in life, so I quit. 

Pretty soon after I quit that job, I started a new side hustle. This new side hustle completely changed my life forever. In fact, in my very first year of doing it, I made around $80,000. In the year after that, I made over $100,000. This was with zero previous experience.

What’s even better is that I was able to do this side hustle basically anywhere I wanted – in my bed, in a coffee shop, on the beach – anywhere. I’m going to walk you through step by step exactly how I was able to do it, and how you can do it too.

Now, this side hustle that I’m talking about is building WordPress websites using a super easy drag and drop page builder called Elementor. This is something that quite literally anybody can learn how to do in just a matter of days. It’s a service that literally every single business needs. By taking the time to watch this video and learn, there’s nothing stopping you, except for yourself.

Now, this article is technically part three of a series on my website. If you haven’t seen the other two yet, visit minetorial.com. But basically, we’ve already talked about the basics of setting up your portfolio website, which you’ll use to send to potential clients. We talked about how to actually find clients and write proposals on sites like Upwork. 

By following the steps from the previous two articles, you’ll actually be able to get to a point where you’re able to make between $1,000 and $4,000 per job that you do. If you were doing, let’s say, four jobs per month, well, you do the math. That’s still really good money.

However, today I’m going to teach you how to make the big money. The big money is not going to be found from clients on Upwork. Typically, clients on Upwork are only comfortable paying around $1,000 to $4,000 max for a website, at least from my experience. So, to make more money, we’re going to have to look outside of Upwork. But the first step is you need to start an actual agency and choose a niche.

Now, don’t let the word agency scare you. As an agency, you’re literally going to be doing the same exact thing that you would be doing as an independent freelancer. The difference, though, is that if you position yourself as an agency, then your potential clients will take you a lot more seriously and be a lot more willing to pay you more money.

Let’s talk about this. What exactly does starting an agency actually look like? Well, it’s basically just you choosing a niche for your agency, which we’ll talk about in a second, and then you coming up with a name for the agency and then using a template to create your agency website. And this means you could technically start your agency today, like right now if you wanted to.

But before you get started, you are going to want to first choose a niche because this is how you’re going to make the big money. What I mean by this is, do you want to only work with construction companies, roofing companies, medical spas, doctors, restaurants, realtors? Like, who is it that you want your agency to serve?

The reason this is so important is because by niching down who you build websites for and what you specialize in, this allows your agency to build much more efficient processes. For example, building a website for a roofing company is going to look a lot different than building a website for a restaurant because both websites are going to require different types of information and different structures.

So, by specializing in one specific niche, you can really hone in and shape exactly what the process is going to look like for building that type of website. If you decide that your agency is going to focus on building websites for dentists, then you can construct an exact blueprint for how that website’s going to be built every single time. And this, of course, means that you will be able to build websites faster but also better.

You know, back when I was a freelancer, I worked with a lot of different web development agencies. The agencies that made the most money were always the agencies that were specialized in one specific niche. For example, I used to be a contract creative director for a very large web development agency. This agency only worked with defense government contractors. 

I know it’s super specific, but because they niched down so far, they became the go-to agency for every single defense government contracting company in that area. And we would charge $20,000, $30,000, sometimes even $40,000 for a single website.

The reason that we were able to charge so much money was because we had the competitive advantage. Yes, there were a ton of other web development agencies in the area, but not a single one of those agencies specialized in defense government contracting websites the way that we did. You see, companies are much more willing to pay more money for a specialized agency because they know even if they’re paying a more premium price for the service, they know that the agency will be able to deliver results.
