When Google adds another exciting product to their bulging arsenal of tools, you should take notice.
Google Helpouts are just being rolled out right now but they will be big in 2014.
With Helpouts you can get help anytime from people with expertise across a range of topics – teachers, counselors, doctors, home repair specialists, personal trainers, hobby enthusiasts, and more.
You can choose who to get help from based on qualifications, availability, ratings and reviews. Also, you can choose to get help right away or schedule a Helpout for later.
Pay for Help
While some Helpouts are free, you’ll need to pay for some. Paying for help is easy using Google Wallet.
Basically you need to get applying as soon as possible.
You cannot wait another minute. People and businesses are queued up waiting for approval. It will take some time.
Businesses can profit from Google Helpouts by offering free masterclasses – a great way of offering that extra bit of value that can make them stand out from their competition. Think of what you can do best and help others with and set up free helpouts – then advertise them on your and social media to make sure you reach your audience. This is similar to when you would write a whitepaper or other types of useful content that you provide for free. It will help you stand out, attract a bigger audience and increase the loyalty of your current customers.
Businesses can also benefit from Google Helpouts by making a little extra money with paid masterclasses. This can work especially well for people who are already regarded as in their fields, whose advice and insight is highly valued in their field of expertise. This will be ideal also for consultants working in companies.
If you are less well known in your field, by providing free classes you increase your chances of getting more customers and consequently more reviews and ratings – and the better your reviews and ratings, the better your chances that you can actually start making some money from Google Helpouts.
Presumably this will be a lead in to being able to do paid hangouts on air to mass audiences.
By being a Google Helpouts provider, you will also be able to reach a whole new audience. With your helpout masterclass listed on your website, you stand a good chance of being discovered by more people.
