A podcast is one of those non-visual mediums that have gained popularity, thanks to smartphones and apps that support podcasts. Spotify is one example of a streaming app that lets users listen to and download podcasts.
For Spanish-speaking individuals, a podcast channel can be a low-investment online business. You will only need catchy themes and topics, along with a laptop to edit your audio files and a good quality mic to record your spoken words. Podcasts can be candid, meaning that you don’t necessarily require a script and can just speak your thoughts as long as you have a direction.
Meanwhile, scripted podcasts might take more time in the pre-production phase, but turn out to be much more effective and to-the-point. You will be tapping into a niche market, as your audience will be the Hispanic or Spanish-speaking community. Many podcasters only use 1 language (English mostly). Therefore, you can get the same discussions and ideas through to your community in your comfortable language.
As a beginner, it’s best to start from scripted podcasts.
This business idea will have a gradual revenue. You will need to set up a podcast channel on any chosen medium(s) such as YouTube or Spotify. Then, once you have found your audience and have a substantial following and views, only then will you be getting paid. Like any other venture, podcasts also require you to be patient.
Things you need:
- A lot of research (audience, topics, platform, style/tone, etc)
- Recording equipment (mic, headphones, mic stand)
- Editing setup (laptop/PC, sufficient storage, editing software)
Students, teenagers, and now even the older generation are relying on the internet to learn or polish their skills. Particularly students, tend to revert to YouTube for online lectures and tutorials. If you possess a valuable skill such as knowing who to operate Photoshop or are good at mathematics, then you need to help out your community too.
Create a YouTube channel, and start posting video-based tutorials on the channel. Interact with your viewers and subscribers in the comments to ask them what they want to see more of, what they like or dislike about your channel, and much more.
You will be recording videos for the tutorials but will be explaining the concepts through your voice as well. So, you can speak in your native language and help those Spanish speakers who find it difficult to grasp concepts when taught in English.
The things you will need for this business will depend on what you are tutoring. If you are tutoring digital software, then a laptop or PC and the software are required.
Website developers are so much more in-demand these days. They are responsible for creating and maintaining websites for their clients.
Companies of all sizes and nature are realizing that they need to optimize their online presence more towards the Hispanic or Latinos of America. Since these communities make up a huge part of the country, companies do need to create websites that can cater to this segment of their audience. Consequently, they require individuals as web developers who understand Spanish and the community as well.
How the information is displayed and presented is one thing that only a multilingual web developer can do. Work as a freelance web developer for companies and clients that require creating multilingual websites and cannot deny your technical as well as your language skills.
