Profits of this common board game are booming
Many board games have had more interest lately, as more people have stayed home...
However, one board game has boomed more than the others!
That's thanks to one TV show...
The show is Netflix's "The Queen's Gambit"... and the game is chess!
Demand for chess sets has grown...
Demand for chess books has exploded!
And even demand for chess instruction has skyrocketed!
Especially for girls... As "The Queen's Gambit" is about a girl chess prodigy...
Many parents are wanting their daughters to learn chess...!
There are a few ways you can benefit from this...
If you are great at chess yourself, of course, you can become a chess coach. You can do this via Zoom or in person, using masks and social distancing... Another way is by creating instructional products.
But what if you're not a chess master yourself?
If you know marketing, it's probably even better...
Many who are skilled at chess know zilch about marketing.
Get a few "chess masters" on your books, and get coaching gigs for them...
You give yourself a cut - say around 10% to 20% (which is the range a talent agent generally gets)...
Then, promote your chess coaching service... Where your customers learn via Zoom or Skype, or in person with protections in place...
The great thing about this - as compared to doing the coaching yourself - is there is no upper limit to what you can make, because with other people doing the actual coaching - it's not limited by your time!
As long as "The Queen's Gambit" is being made, the heightened demand for chess education will most likely continue!
