Thanks to being known on Tik Tok with videos revealing tips for using Excel, American girl Kat Norton has had a much higher income than before. Now, she only works 15 hours a week and combines traveling with her boyfriend.
Kat Norton from the US, nicknamed Miss Excel, is currently an attractive name in the Tik Tok community because of her useful tips when using the Microsoft Excel database. Usually, users will rarely know the keyboard shortcuts that they can apply to simplify tasks in Excel. However, Norton will help many people know that through her funny short videos.
Earning 6 figures thanks to a software course
With a TikTok account of 654,000 followers, Norton’s short videos attract more than 1.4 million likes. As well as teaching viewers the Microsoft software, Norton also explains Google Sheets with choreography embedded in trending songs.
Because of the Covid-19 pandemic, Norton was forced to suspend her current job and return to live with her parents. Initially, Norton did not intend to use Tik Tok and did not have the software in her phone. After that, Norton tried posting a few videos and by the fourth time it had 100,000 views.
Just 6 days after creating the Miss Excel account, Norton was contacted by the CEO of an information technology company to create training videos for students, parents and teachers. Norton wasted no time and immediately got to work on producing its first Excel course, due out on Black Friday 2020.
Eight weeks after launch, Norton earns more in her day job. She uses social media to market her video courses with prices ranging from $297 to $997. Now Norton has joined an advertising agency to help her build her presence through promotional channels on Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn.
In an interview with The Verge, she explained that she has expanded her income a lot, to 6 figures within 6 months.
Work less, combine enjoyment
Kat Norton has received a Microsoft MVP award for her educational content, and her work schedule is more open than ever. Norton only works 15 hours a week and with her boyfriend, who has also been out of work since she started TikTok, has been on some really meaningful trips. They hang out but still work to fulfill their dream of traveling the world. Every month, they go to a new city.
While for many people, the pandemic is terrifying, but Norton is completely different, she took advantage of the opportunity when the netizens could not go out and was always tied to the phone to make money.
