Do you have a knack for painting? Are you that friend everyone calls to help hang a picture or assemble furniture? Here are a few ways to get started turning your home-maintenance skills into some additional cash.
Update your Facebook profile and get connected
If you’re already on Facebook, great. If you’re not, Facebook is a great place tell the world you’re in business doing what you love. Facebook is where your friends are. Ask for referrals. You’ll be surprised how many jobs get posted on Facebook … “hey, does anyone know a good handyman?” … if your friends know you’re available they’ll usually think of you!
Create a website or at least an online portfolio
If a picture is worth a thousand words than an online portfolio is worth a million. Get started with creating your online brand by displaying images of some of the projects you are proud of. It can be as simple as creating an Instagram or Pinterest account to post photos to or take it one step further and create your own website using one of the many easy website builders such as Wix or Weebly.
Network with industry groups and events
Many industries have dedicated associations that offer resources for you to learn, grow and network with other professionals such as the Roofing Contractors Association of British Columbia or the Master Painters and Decorators Association.
