I have some friends that are designers. People can easily create their own gigs on Fiverr or Upwork and bank some cash on the side. However, as an internet marketer, I told them to do what I do. I'm not saying it's right or wrong, but since they're designers they could easily create content and make it go viral on Facebook. Then find ways to monetize to audience. For example, they can easily just create a t-shirts and run an ad on it. Personally I find this much easier. I used to make music for artists and it's such a struggle. The composition take too long to even get a song done, mix and then engineer it by someone else.
What are your thoughts for someone who is selling their skills online V.S an actual marketer ? Granted, some marketers are not designers so they have to outsource. However, if you're a designer you don't need to outsource anymore. Does anyone know what I'm saying? Designers or video animator can easily just create the content, publish it onto their fan page and drive traffic, then monetize.
