What does it take to be an expert today?

Here are 4 ways to turn your real world but "non-expert" experience into interesting (and potentially profitable) expert businesses.

Being perceived as an expert can unlock lots of great money-making opportunities and the rules have changed for becoming an "expert".

Traditionally "experts" were those with credentials – PhD, MD, MBA, etc. But the Web has opened millions of smaller niches where there are no academic credentials.

For example, who has a PhD in how to buy cheap car insurance or how to attract Facebook followers?

So today to make money as an expert you don't have to "be" an expert as long as your audience "perceives" you as one. If the audience believes you know more than they do, you ARE an expert in their eyes.

Hi Scott.

Maybe it's my IP - this time & last time when I try to open your blog all I get is the template on the top & left side (using IE9/Windows7). I tried many times w/the same result.

You're right, Martin - it took 34 "one-thousands", but it did load. I thought it was done loading before - usually there's a little 'spinning wheel' when something is still processing, but it disappeared in a couple of seconds, so I thought it was done. Thanks for the heads-up.
