I like to give examples of businesses that you can start promoting today. I was talking to a friend recently who studied French.

She has been fluent in French for the past 10 to 15 years and was recently looking for a new job. So I spoke to her on the phone and helped her identify multiple French-related services she could promote online to make money.

Important things to note

First, I suggested that she teach French to kids within her area whose parents can afford such services.

Second, I explained that she could market ‘English-to-French and French-to-English’ translation services online.

Third, I explained that she could sell small French classes through Skype to customers far from her area.

I told her I had once enrolled my 6-year-old daughter in a Yoruba class through Skype, which was successful.
