Do friends and local neighbours often ring you for advice on buying a computer or starting a blog or SEO tricks or how to find something on Google ? You are probably a local geek and have full potential to earn money for your expertise.

While I am not suggesting you to start charging money from relatives in return of help, you can consider monetizing your skill-set by setting up your own professional consulting business online and reaching a wider set of people.

First you fix your own consulting rate (either per hour or per call), then people seeking advice give you a call over the regular phone and once they are satisfied and hang-up the phone, the equivalent payment is automatically transferred to your bank account from the client's account.

Sounds complicated ? Believe me, it is not - All you have to do is get a free Ether Phone Number, set your consulting rate and fix the time of the day when you are available for consultation. Ether will manage the whole show.

People (Clients) will only be able to call you when they've prepaid your rate. Ether bills their credit cards and sends you your money via direct deposit or check. Ether 's commission is 15%. A customer will dial your Ether Phone Number and Ether will call you at the number you selected. You can choose on the fly whether or not to actually take the call.
