Massive Earning Opportunity - Google HelpOuts

23 replies
I have already witnessed 2014 being the year of great online opportunities for newbies and experienced warriors. One of these opportunities is Google Helpouts. This is going to be huge according to what I've read and discussed with fellow warriors.

Just watch the first 2 mins and 15 Secs:
Google HelpOuts is basically a new and exciting way to connect people who need help using LIVE video. Google will also provide free ground-breaking tools. People like us can simply signup to become a helpouts instructor and charge for your time by sharing your advice with others over live video. I honesty think this will be one of the best opportunities for people to make money online. I would even go as far to say that it will be bigger than Google Adsense with bigger payouts.

Do you think Google Helpouts will benefit your business? If so please, how will it add value to your business? I don't mind hearing both sides of the argument?

Many thanks

      Your right Jay. I personally think this will be much better than Google Adsense and people who educate themselves with Google HelpOuts and take action will be be planting the seeds of prosperity. Just think you will be able to earn more than the normal micro sites, earn affiliate commissions, generate leads and build your own lists. You won't need a website, autoresponders and the other tools. I've only heard good things but it will be great to hear the other side of the arguments from fellow warriors.

    This is definitely an exciting opportunity. Have seen some demos of it in action already - examples include professional chefs offering video assistance to home cooks. A lot of 'brick and mortar' businesses are going to jump on this as well.

    As in anything there'll soon become a need to distinguish yourself. Some participants are already offering limited 'free' advice and then charging for their time after the freebie is up. Same could apply to people in this market -- offer a free consult and then upsell a premium service. Hmmm, where have I seen that model before?

    Not possible. It will never have the reach of their advertising program, which makes them over $12 Billion per year. Considering the 68% payout to webmasters that means gross ad sales are around $16 Billion. That kind of money will never flow through Google Helpouts.

    It could turn out to be a decent place for people to earn some spending money if Google pushes it. Hard to say. They've got their fingers in so many things that most of what they touch gets killed off.

    • Sounds like it might be worth exploring, at least in the short run. Hard to say if it will stick around, I think that would depend on whether Google can make enough money from it to make it worth while to them.

    Google Helpouts is definitely a great opportunity although I haven't gotten involved with it yet!

  • Hope it stays underground. The last thing it needs is a flood of people who have no business using it trying to exploit the tool for "easy money".

    While you spend time reading people's signatures on a forum someone else is working to make the money you could have made.

    I haven't tried Google Hangouts because it's just another linear income stream. That is, you get "paid by the hour". I get higher hourly fees by providing services to my local clients, "by the hour".

    What interests me most are non-linear income opportunities, like write an ebook once, then sell it for months or years without working on it again - then do a new edition and repeat.

    Of course you have to constantly market these non-linear items, so it's not trivially easy. In fact, it's a lot of work, but it does have that non-linear advantage.

    I appreciate this post however, because it does seem a good opportunity for newbies or for those times when you may need some quick cash to tide you over the rough spots (though I don't know how long Google takes to pay you).

      It's relatively new so my advice would be to prepare well, go through their TOS, make sure you complete the form fully. I believe there is a phone interview and you really want to show that your passionate about providing quality advice/services and want to give your customers a great user experience. Talk about how you've been successful on micro job sites and that you have transferable skills.

    I see this as doing a similar job to LinkedIn or even Fiverr, as a 'Good In' to small business owners.

    As Mark says, get in with a freebie and then market your other services. I think the bricks and mortar brigade will really take to this.

    Why trust Google? They have a poor record of rewarding 'helpers' long term.

      That is a good point. We do the dirty work and they get all the credit.

      I just checked and found that there is an app for this on Google Play, not sure about iTunes. Many positive reviews but I expected a lot more downloads for a Google product.
