Thinking About Getting A Second Job? Read This First

It is pretty clear that the best way to meet your financial goals or acquire the things you want is to increase income. One way to do that is to get a second job. However, there are lots of disadvantages to getting a second traditional job. Here we’ll discuss some of the pros, cons, and alternatives to getting a second to help you in your decision to increase your income.

Disadvantage Number One

A set schedule. Having to comply with the set schedule that your secondary employer is likely the single largest disadvantage to a second job. They may ask you to work more than you originally signed up for or they may ask you to flex time away from your day job towards them. Even in the event that that the second company can comply with your day job’s schedule, it may end with the result of you working 7 days a week every week, which could leave your physical and mental health lagging.

Disadvantage Number Two

Confusing taxes. One of the nice things about a traditional job is that the employer will draft taxes from each of your paychecks for you rather than you having to pay quarterly or monthly as self-employment would require. However, you should take this tax withholding with a grain of salt – each of your two employers will probably use a calculation to determine your taxes withheld independent to that one job. With that, your total taxes due for your total income could, in certain cases, exceed your withholdings which would leave you with a bill due to the IRS at the end of the year. No one wants that, so if you do go this route, pay attention to the paperwork you fill out on day 1!

What Are Some Alternatives To Getting A Second Job?

Let’s start by looking at your budget. You’ve probably already determined that your bottom line after subtracting expenses from your income is too little, or worse, negative. This is where many people jump straight to trying to increase income though getting a second job. However, you should take a deeper look at your budget. What expenses are present that you could eliminate or decrease? Are you spending too much on entertainment? Too much eating out? Have you shopped around for cheaper car insurance?

While decreasing expenses isn’t doable for everyone, it is often times more scalable and a better long-term fix to your budget sheet problem. Reducing expenses rather than increasing income will leave you with the same amount of free time you currently have rather than dedicating that to a second job. Your stress levels and mental capacity geared towards work will not be negatively impacted as they might be with two jobs.

The alternative that seems to solve the largest number of these pitfalls is to find a job that allows you to work for yourself. This is a bit of an open-ended answer because there are so many possibilities: driving for ridesharing, mowing lawns in your neighborhood, making and selling instructional videos, freelancing a certain skill of yours, and so on. With this option you simply have more freedom. You can choose your own hours, to some extent you can choose what type of work you do, and you can choose your rate of billing. Further, as your personal finances fluctuate you can scale back or scale up as you see fit without having to go though an employer.

Marketing Essentials for Start-up Businesses

Okay, so you decided to go to it alone and set up your own company and finally be your own boss. There is plenty of work that needs to happen before you are ready to launch your business. You need to look at accounting, registering your business and lots of different elements of admin. You might need to set up your premises, or a home office and you may even need to recruit employees. So basically you are going to have a lot on your plate.

One thing that you cannot afford to leave off your radar is your marketing plan. Even the best business ideas fail if you don’t put your efforts into your marketing strategy. And unfortunately a lot of start-up businesses fail.  In fact, a massive  8/10 businesses fail according to Bloomberg.

So to make sure that you are not part of the negative statistics, you will need to put great efforts into your marketing. If you are completely new to marketing then this might be a bit daunting. But you can quickly get up to speed with the latest marketing trends and the best types of marketing tools and strategies to use.

Once you get used to it, your marketing will just start to come naturally. The hardest part is getting started, so to make it easier for you we are giving you some helpful tips for anybody starting off for the first time with their marketing plan.

Set up a website

The first place that consumers will search for a product or service is going to be on the Internet. So if you do not have a website, people are not going to be able to find you and you are not going to get business. Many people avoid setting up a website because they think it’s going to cost a lot of money but that isn’t necessarily true.

You can actually set up a website completely for free, which a lot of start-up  businesses do to keep costs down. What you need to know about the free websites is that they tend to come with a lot of limitations, such as limited amounts of storage and bandwidth.

Free hosting companies make their money through people upgrading to a paid service or through people paying them to display ads on the free websites that they provide.  Before you sign up with a free web host make sure that you are aware of all of the limitations. You can alternatively get a shared hosting plan that cost as little as 5 pounds a month and give you a lot more options and features. There are lots of cheap hosting options out there, so take a look.

Email marketing

Email marketing is another very effective way of generating leads for your business. Obviously you will need to have an email list of people to send your email campaigns to but if you have this information you can stop sending high quality email campaigns to attract new customers.

Paid ads

Paid traffic for your website is another good way of generating customers and this is becoming increasingly popular as a marketing method. For example, Facebook ads and Google ads are helping businesses to generate more leads. Again, there is a misconception that this is going to cost a lot of money but you can actually place ads relatively cheaply.

SEO

Understanding and applying search engine optimisation is another good marketing technique. SEO doesn’t cost anything, you simply apply a set of principles to make your content and your website more search engine friendly. So marketers use principles such as including keywords in content to make it perform better in regards to search engine results. There’s a lot of different areas that contribute towards making websites more SEO friendly, including the performance of the website and making sure content such as images are optimised.

Social media

You can set up social media accounts for your business completely for free. You can set up a Facebook business page for example, or for B2B marketing LinkedIn is a really good option. Create regular, useful content to build up followers and hopefully get people to share your content with other users to increase your marketing reach.
