I’m anxious about the world opening up, I’ve made a pretty decent income doing tutorials online, will it disappear soon?

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?

Look on the bright side! The world is opening up but partially. So you can still take advantage of this situation and I would disagree with you on this being a one time thing. Look at it as a headstart; you got a lot of exposure to customers because of the lockdown so that means you’ll get more potential clients if your content is really that good!

Every business always needs to morph. Just look to understand user needs/tastes/etc. Responding to the needs of the market is how you will successfully get to the other side of this

One way to benefit in the longer term is by trying to build a personal brand in a niche that will see demand even after everything is opening up again. It sounds like you are currently offering pretty broad classes. Are you able to specialize in one specific topic? It might literally start out with “how to make kick ass flyers in 10 minutes with photoshop” and you build around it. Once you have established yourself as an expert in one area it’s usually easy to add to that foundation and to expand.
