I advertised in FB Groups, friends, and locals. It was just a simple how-to make flyers or draw a portrait using photoshop, but it caught fire and I charged at least $15-$20 per virtual guest via zoom and it lasts 40 minutes. Then I was able to privately do 1 on 1 with a couple of clients and got a decent going. Without spending money and time to travel, it was a pretty decent income.
Now I’m worried that this was just a lucky streak. The graphic design department gets a lot of bad wrap so I don’t doubt that I won’t find anything else after this lockdown. Was it just a fluke or should I expect nothing else?
Has anyone started their gig because of this global event? And is it just a one-time thing for us who have done it?
