There’s never been a more perfect time than now to sell your knowledge online to earn an extra buck. Interestingly enough, the global e-learning market is expected to reach $400 billion by 2026, so using the technology you already know is a sure-fire way to secure a piece of the pie.

There are a few ways to execute this plan. Methods of selling your knowledge include writing an ebook, selling your designs, building an online course, or starting a blog, podcast, or even a YouTube channel. Adding a side job is said to increase the average American’s monthly income by at least 25%. If successful cases, sharing knowledge online can transform into a full-time job.
