The Internet has evened the playing friend for entrepreneurs trying to break into new businesses. Take, for example, the business of tarot card reading. Do you feel drawn to psychic activity and have an interest in tarot cards? You may be able to make a good living by reading tarot cards online.
Once upon a time, a tarot card reader needed a storefront or had to buy a table at a local fair to attract customers. Today, however, tarot card readers can read cards via Skype, FaceTime or other technologies. Tarot card readers can also promote their businesses using YouTube, and reach out to potential clients via Twitter.
However, there is a caveat. Since it’s easier today to make money reading tarot cards online than it was, say 10 years ago, make sure you know what you’re doing. Take the time to build your confidence and know that you are ready to take your tarot card reading prime time.
How to make sure you are ready for customers
The good news is that the Internet makes it easier than ever to start a tarot card reading business. The bad news is that the Internet makes it easier for people to complain about your services. If you do a bad job, the word can quickly spread via social media, killing your business before it can get off the ground.
To build confidence in your abilities and what you’re doing, you want to practice, practice practice. Here are some ways to strengthen your skills before you start trying to make money reading tarot cards online.
- Find like-minded friends and swap readings.
- Offer a few readings at no cost in exchange for honest feedback.
- Take a course from a professional tarot card reader.
- Do daily readings for yourself and track your accuracy.
Once you feel comfortable that you are giving accurate readings, you can start building a network of paying customers.
How to find people to pay you to read tarot cards online
It’s one thing to trade readings with a friend; it’s another thing altogether to get someone to pay you to read tarot cards online. However, here is the thing. Once you do a reading for someone and they consider it to be accurate, you will likely have a repeat customer. People develop relationships with psychics and tarot card readers. Even Meghan Markle turned to a psychic on a regular basis. If customers feel that a reader did a good job, they will sing the reader’s praises and likely keep coming back.
So you might lure initial customers by offering one-time free or low-cost readings. If you’re confident in your abilities and do a good job, there is a good chance that many of those customers will come back again. Only the next time, you would charge full price.
You can also find paying customers by signing up for an online psychic service. Typically you’ll get a portion of whatever the service makes on each reading. While you can typically pick your work schedule, some services pay more if you work certain times such as late as night. You can make money to supplement your income, or as you build a following, you might even make a full-time income.
Try offering readings via social media. Not sure what to charge? Look at what other tarot card readers are charging, and then think about what you feel comfortable asking for. When you are just starting out, you might feel uneasy about charging a lot, but as you grow in experience, allow your fee to grow too. Some tarot card readers make between $100 and $200 an hour for their tarot card reading skills.
