Grow Your Business


A simple side hustle can turn into a full-blown career if you invest in it the right way. Right now, more than 44 million people in the United States have some type of side hustle, but there is always room for success. It doesn’t matter whether you sell cosmetics to family and friends or you spend your evenings and weekends selling houses, you just have to know how to run and grow your business.

The following tips may ignite your side hustle into a full-time gig:

Organization of Efforts

The first step is to get organized. Ideally, you need a place and a system to get your ideas in order and track your efforts. Start with listing everything out and dividing those concepts and activities by status and timeline. This way, you can spot any deadlines and identify follow-up opportunities. Getting organized in your business efforts also helps you establish a calendar for your efforts and prioritize your tasks more effectively.

Establish Your Personal Brand

Next, work toward establishing your personal brand. If you sell for a company, they may have their own branding efforts and systems that will help would-be customers know that you exist. From websites that list real estate agents to yoga instructor databases and shopping websites that let people look for a rep in their areas, these bits of marketing are an excellent first step, but they should not be the entirety of your branding efforts.

You also need to consider your personal brand. The customers you attract are going to need to choose you over someone else in your area or another provider. Make that decision easy for them by developing your personal brand. Get on social media and start posting about things that matter to your future customers and establish yourself as a personality in that field. Also, build a website and work toward creating an email list. Make people care about what you have to say within your field. Just make sure you remain authentic in the process.

Build a Team

You can make things easier on yourself by building a team. While you could hire help, there are other ways to minimize your workload. You can outsource many tasks using technology or set up automated efforts, such as scheduled social media posts or reminders about following up with your clients.

Marketing Matters

Whether you sell a service or product, knowing ways to market your business can make a big difference in your level of success. While you can acquire this knowledge by studying a class or reading blogs, there is another way. Consider direct selling. Companies such as Amway invest in creating training videos to help their salespeople succeed. If you sign up, you will have access to all of those tools and resources.

Turning your side hustle into a full-time career is not impossible. You could shape an entirely new future for yourself by organizing your efforts, building a personal brand, outsourcing where possible, and improving your marketing. Even small efforts in the right direction can have big rewards.


In the cut-throat world of digital marketing, your business needs something to stand out from the crowd. The brain forgets 90% of the information we receive after three days. But if that information is presented with images, we remember it 65% of the time.

This means presenting information within images is essential for effective marketing. That is where infographics come in.

Infographics offer an opportunity to go a little deeper. It allows companies to provide a small chunk of information. Just enough to grab the reader’s attention. But not so much as to require more than a brief scan.

This is why more and more companies are turning to an Infographic Design Service to meet their marketing needs. Here are 4 ways that infographics can help your business grow.

They increase web traffic

Infographics generate web traffic. On average, an infographic shared on social media increases web traffic to your page by 12%. How do I know? I read it in an infographic.

They increase social media reach and engagement

People are more likely to share an infographic than an image or text. Add an embed code to your infographic so viewers can quickly share it on social media. Be sure to include a link to your website and make your company name clearly visible in bold.

Infographics also increase user engagement. A social media post with images receives around 650% more social media engagement than those without.

They are a valuable tool to increase your mailing list

An extensive mailing list is a valuable marketing tool. It allows you to quickly send marketing material to potential clients users that have already expressed an interest in your website.

You can use infographics to quickly broaden your mailing list. By creating a unique landing page for each infographic clickthrough, users will be confronted with a prompt to sign up to receive more infographics like it.

These users are valuable. If a user likes your infographic, they are 67% more likely to be persuaded by your content. Getting these users on your mailing list converts to more sales.

Infographics keep visitors on your page for longer

Most page views last less than a minute. That means you have 60 seconds to show a visitor why they should stick around.

An infographic is an ideal way to do this. It delivers information quickly, allowing readers to extract everything they need to know while skimming through your site.

However, a word of caution. A page laden with heavy images will take longer to load. If your site takes longer than three seconds to load, it could be driving visitors away.

The key is finding a balance between creating informative and striking infographics while maintaining rapid loading speeds.

All of these benefits involve giving your audience the most information in the least possible time. Infographics get to the heart of the matter swiftly, and in a way that will stay with people far longer than text or a simple image will.

When you can quickly demonstrate why people should use your product or services, you get more sales, and ultimately, expand your business. If you aren’t using infographics, you should be!
