1. Business idea of the Week: Managing Google My Business Listings
Looking for a way to make some recurring monthly revenue?
Then this may be the perfect side hustle for you.
There’s no question that having a good “Google My Business” profile can be game-changing to a business.
If you don’t show up in the top 4 results, you’re missing out on a ton of leads.
This week, I stumbled across a video titled “I Tried Making $500/Day With Google Maps”, and of course had to click on it.
In the video, the Youtuber cold calls local businesses that have awful “Google My Business” listings and offers to optimize and manage them as a service.
Once he signs them up at $100/month he goes to Fiverr and pays a Freelancer $35/month, leaving him with $65/month in profit.
The idea: Create a Google My Business agency.
This is a super simple idea that can be started in a day.
You don’t need to know how to optimize Google listings… but you will need to make cold calls.
If you’re willing to pick up the phone and try to sell to local business owners, you can create a nice monthly side income for yourself, for just a few days of work.
How to get started:
The only thing you’ll need for this is a phone and a way to accept payments (like Stripe of Paypal).
To get started, you’ll just need to search for businesses in your area and find the ones with low ratings and missing info.
Like this 👇
You can call the number they provide and pitch them on your service to manage their listing.
Pitch them on the results (more calls, leads, etc.) that a good listing can get them, not just the service you provide.
Use the Google My Business service as the baseline offering, and offer additional upsells like website management, SEO, or anything you can come up with.
Once they say yes, you can outsource the fulfillment to freelancers on Fiverr or Upwork.
Rinse & repeat, and you’ve got yourself an agency!
And that’s a wrap!

3. Twitter Monetization Explained
Before the change, creators needed a minimum of 15M impressions over the last 90 days.
Now creators will only need 5M impressions in the past 90 days.
To fully qualify, you need:
A premium X subscription ($8/month)
5M impressions in the last 90 days
So if you’re like me, you’re trying to figure out how to get 5M impressions asap.
But to do this, you’ll either need a viral tweet, or a ton of tweets with a few thousand impressions.
And since it’s hard to make something go viral, sending out a ton of tweets will give you the best odds of hitting the 5M impressions.
This seems like a perfect opportunity for a challenge.
I’m thinking 100 tweets per day for 10 days.
What do you think?
And that’s a wrap!
