New Revenue Streams To Get More Profit Out of Your Business

If you wish to be an entrepreneurial millionaire quickly, making one product with a high-profit margin that flies off the shelves is not enough. You need to create additional revenue streams to accumulate wealth.

An additional revenue stream is pretty much what it sounds like- another way to make money for you and your business. It is extra income that you earn apart from the main revenue streams that define and mainly supports your business.

Take Stock of How much you can monetize

When it comes to creating multiple revenue streams, it does not mean you need to start several more mini-businesses. Initially, you can start just by considering how much of what you do daily or how much you have can be monetized. Jamie King says going through your day’s activities with brainstorming questions like “How can this serve others?” or, “How can I repurpose?”

Take stock of each resource you have to offer, think how you can benefit your consumers and build a business plan around it. 

Focus on Passive or Residual Income

Many passive or residual revenue streams can continue to accumulate money on the side while you are building or focusing on your main business. There are plenty of examples, but try to add income streams like from royalty income, in which you own intellectual property for books as well as music. Or dividend income, in which you won stocks or interests in a business that pay you a percentage of their excess profits.

Freelancing and Independent Contracts

These days, freelancing is an emerging trend. This type of work can be helpful in the early days of a start-up. At your initial phase, you have many tasks, including the financial well-being of your employees. Living off dividends takes about a year so independent contracts can be the perfect option to cover your expenses and generate extra income.

Look for opportunities in the market consisting of consulting contracts that can pay a good hourly fee, or even short-term projects with fixed payment terms, locally or remotely.

Provide Training Course for Your Products and Services

If your company sells products and services that will need considerable time for achieving operational knowledge for the customer, you can easily create training courses that you can offer to them as additional to the primary offering. Again, you can offer two options for people with two option first more expensive physical training and second is more affordable virtual training that will be shipped online through the membership website.

Holds One Income Soured in Your full Control

Holding one source fully within your control means to make sure you are not relying on someone else’s performance of productions to thrive.

It is not so tough to build up residual streams, but when you ensure that there is one source that’s your real money maker and dependent on your own resources and skills will keep you in control of your own earning.

Google and other Ads

Ads may be served by you with your own ad server or through third-party networks like Google Ad Words. Here, revenue depends on the kind of advertisements like CPC (Cost per Click) or CPM (Cost per thousand).

Renting

As a local, you have access to cheaper prices if the contract allows and not restricts you to sublet a venue or an apartment, go for it. Rent or own an apartment in centrally-located areas; it is attractive to potential guests and travellers. You can also rent the whole apartment or just one room for a short time. It will get you to at least the monthly costs for the place.

Allow small groups of people to organize weekend events in your space. One of the popular ways to earn money through your place is sharing your office space with another start-up and spilled the cost.

Affiliate Partnership

If you have a website with good traffic, you can partner with other third-party websites and serves as their affiliate partners. With this, you redirect visitors to third-party sites and earn a commission whenever their redirected visitor makes a purchase on the third-party site. It is a quite steady and painless way to earn additional revenue as you do not need to worry about storage, shipping, etc.
