I'd like to start my second source of income(shouldn't have to be millions of dollars, should cover just basic expenses with 5-10% savings). I've been into digital marketing for a while, but it seems everybody's doing it, and there's nothing exclusive I could offer. Any other suggestions are welcome.

1) Not everybody’s doing it.

2) It shouldn’t matter what anybody else is doing so long as you help people, and get paid.

3) You don’t have to have anything exclusive to offer.

Any suggestions as to how can I get more clients? I mean, if I am good at it, I might as well get paid well to do it.

Maybe check out the inbound braindump in my signature for starters?

The reason why digital marketing makes such a good side hustle is that you don't need very many clients.

Sign up a few at $1k/month, provide them basic services, and you can usually cover income shortfall that way.

If they love you and want to continue using you, then you won't have to prospect much anymore.

@random_9492 look at what @Andy Black is saying, you yourself said you just want a side hussle and not a milion dollar business:
1. many people do it, you can too, you don't have to be an industry leader and reinvent the system.
2. if you can provide someone with value then that's it, again you don't aim to be the leading value provider in the industry, just a value provider.
3. again, same point, as long as you provide value you have a service/product to sell, having an exclusive "sell-point" is great but not a requirement for entry level side hussle.

P.S - you obviosuly don't have to do digital marketing, but just note the principles here.

Thank you for your perspective. Extremely helpful to get a point of view.

What may I include in the basic services? And The thing I forgot to mention in the post was that I’ve never worked as a freelancer. So, any suggestions as to how should I get started on that?
