Do you want to know the 4 types of digital skills that you can start an online service business with? read on…
Acquiring a skill is the bedrock of starting a service-based business online. There are not many businesses that you can start easily like a service-based or skill-based business.
Why is this so?
Because you do not need any equipment, you do not need any inventory, all you need is your skill and a place to display your service offerings, your marketing ability and you are good to go.
I love skill-based businesses because they give you the opportunity to express yourself and make money from the comfort of your home.
So, in this post, I will share with you 4 types of digital skills you can start a home business with.
This is not the digital skill that takes you months on end to learn, no. These are skills that you can learn within a month.
You can start setting up your business while you learn and as you apply what you learn you will start getting your clients.
You can say that your business will hit the ground running before you know it.
So what are these skills ?
Before we get into all that, I will like you to know the factors you need to consider when choosing skills to learn.

Factors to consider before learning different types of digital skills
1. Market trends
This means that you are able to read the times and know what skill is in hot demand.
If you learn the skills that are in hot demand, you will have more jobs or gigs to do than you can manage.
For example, when I started my blogging business, I did not know what my income streams should be nor how to monetize my blog.
With time, I learned that most bloggers offered freelance writing services.
When I started freelance writing, I started making money.
I was not watching the trends in my industry so I was not able to cash in on the opportunities in front of me.
2. Things that do not change but requires new ways of doing it
This means that while times change, there are certain demands that will not change.
For example, marketing products is a constant demand for businesses, the only thing that changes is how it is done.
Therefore if you love marketing, you can learn a skill like email marketing, this will help you to offer your services to those who will be struggling with such services.
Another example for as long there is commerce, there will be a need for shops to sell goods.
Today selling has moved from a physical shop to online shops.
So instead of running around trying to be a wannabe real estate agent, you can build online shops for your customers.
3.Skills that require no 3rd party dependency
When deciding on the skills you want to learn, it is important to learn a skill that you can easily turn into a business.
This means that you do not have to depend on someone to employ you before you start making money from it.
For example, if you learn a skill that requires an organization to hire you before deploying it, you keep yourself at the mercy of rejection of applications.
But if your skill can be packaged into a business proposal, you can put it together and market it to someone that will pay you for it.
Now that you know the factors to consider before learning different types of digital skills.
I will introduce to you 4 types of digital skills that fits these factors
