At one point he shows the Youtuber Casey Neistat as an example, not a lot of people know him as an affiliate marketer but John does make a good point of showing that he actually is. There was one moment here though that got my attention. That was when he said that the link to Beme (he pronounced it wrong) in the video description was an affiliate link to a product Casey was promoting. He said that Casey would make a buck or two if you downloaded it but I know that Beme was actually a fully fledged technology start up Casey co-founded that used millions of dollars of investor money. It’s not an affiliate product Casey was promoting for a “buck or two”. This just shows the confidence John has to sometime’s spout out stuff he knows absolutely nothing about.
For example, you have 5 courses with a price of $100 each. But, you have decided to offer them in a bundled offer for buy 5 pay 3 ($300). Most of your customers will think about spending $500 in one go, but offering them at a discounted price will make them think of the $200 they are saving, and you are getting them to buy more courses where initially they were going to get only one.

Research other listings in your city on AirBnB and see what the going rate is for a place like yours. You could also just rent out a private room as well or even a bed in a shared room. In fact, that's how AirBnB got its start. However, you might find it hard in the beginning without reviews, but as long as you take really good care of your guests and provide a lot of value, the reviews will eventually come rolling in.


If you want to work from home as a copywriter — then you need to check out AWAI's copywriting course.

Using Fiverr is a great way to pick up work. Once you have signed up you can advertise your services. Fiver allows you to create your own gigs, whether you are offering web design, digital marketing, writing, or something else. You can choose how much you want to charge (it can be more than a fiver) and people will then contact you if they are interested in working with you. Fiverr will not only help you get experience if you are just starting off as a freelancer, but it will also help you earn some extra cash.
There’s no rule that you have to stick with one course. If there are other courses you can teach related to your initial course, create those. You can then refer your students to these other courses. For example, if you offer a course on how to write a mystery, you can add a course on how to publish a book and/or how to market a book. You can also create new courses in completely different areas.
The growing knowledge economy, where information is power, has also increased demand for online courses! It is without a doubt a booming market worldwide and research statistics prove it. As recent data finds, the global e-learning market is going to reach $325 billion by 2025, and this is evident through the Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 7.5% that shows an increasing demand and interest in online content and digitalization.
Keep in mind though, you don’t need a website to do sponsored content since you can also get paid if you have a lot of social media followers. My wife has a pretty big Instagram following, and she gets all kinds of sponsorships. Not only does she get paid in cash, but we get a lot of free stuff, too. We’ve received free rugs, free lights, and free carpet cleaners. She only promotes things she loves though, so this strategy works really well for her.
6. IZEA – IZEA works in addition to a blog or on its own. You get paid to blog, tweet, take photos and take videos. The pay is mostly based on your following, so if you want to make money with your tweets, you’ll need to grow you Twitter following.  Likewise, if you want to make money with blogs, you’ll need substantial blog traffic (more on blogging below).

Are you a professional in a field that can help answer questions for people looking for your expertise? Websites like JustAnswer and LivePerson match you up with people looking for answers to technical or professional questions. You can make money online by simply answering these questions and providing the right information to people based on their individualistic circumstances.

For the premium course. you can charge your customers more and consider using payment plans (installments) where you can either pay once or pay for up to six months or yearly. You can go premium when you offer exclusive content or more extended course offering more features or an advantaged course e.g. towards winning a certification in the medical field, etc.
You could, in theory, just not write a review for those products that are no good… but you’ll be spending countless hours to test several products just to find one that’s good. But for launch jacking to work, you need to test and review products quickly (to beat your competitors to it) and frequently (up to several a week) because not all of them will rank well in Google or on Bing. You might do 10 reviews and only 3 make it to the front page of the search engine results (if any at all).

Hi Laura: Not sure if you can help me or not, but I am in the process of putting together an online Spa Retreat that includes Content from my book (book is included in price ), guided meditation and deep breathing exercises. My problem: I am new to online training and can’t figure out the right way to do the training. I want to use live video calls weekly for 6 weeks. I am looking for the correct platform to take payment, as well as deliver the video conference.
Looking in the comment section under the module video I can see that Facebook pages shared mostly all have a couple of likes at best and some don’t even load as they have been left too rot and be deactivated. Is that because they didn’t ask enough of their friends to like their page? Maybe it’s because they didn’t write a post every single day or is it because there was actually no good advice in this module.
You could also opt to use existing websites for making money. These include both active income and passive income methods. For example, you could sell some used items or invest in creating some digital designs that then can be sold on merchandise. Again, devote a sizable portion of your time to passive income so that you can slowly build up earnings that will arrive on autopilot without any extra added effort. 
19. eBay – Of course you can’t read an article about making money online that doesn’t mention eBay. You can start an eBay store and get serious about it or you can just sell some stuff to declutter your home. Either way, I’ve made my fair share from selling on eBay and it’s still a popular way to earn money. If you decide to start an actual eBay store, you’ll want to find a drop-ship business like Doba that will store and ship items straight to your customers so you don’t have to deal with an inventory.
Similar to a YouTube vlogger, if you have a large following on Instagram then you could become an Instagram Influencer. You will be paid to promote products in your photos, from wearing certain clothes to action shots of you using particular merchandise. As your Instagram following grows, you may start out simply receiving freebies in return for a picture of you with the item in the shot. However, for those with followings running into millions, you can expect large payments to display products in your pictures. Use sites like Hype Factory to help connect you with companies prepared to pay for your influence.

Absolutely, whilst you don’t have to be working like a slave horse for peanuts for the next 3 years (lol), it will take a few months of consistent effort to see a consistent income. I made my first commission after 2 weeks (Only $1 but I was ecstatic!) and by the 6 months’ mark it was a steady stream. At 12 months I quit my job and headed for warmer climates never to look back.
If you’re looking for inspiration, my friend Michelle Schroeder-Gardner of the website Making Sense of Sense has become the expert on all things affiliate marketing. Michelle earns more than $100,000 per month from her blog and the bulk of her income comes from affiliate sales. Michelle has had so much success with affiliate marketing that she even has her own course called Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing.
So, where are we supposed to turn to make money the legitimate way online? This isn't just about generating passive income; this is also about finding ways and means to create an active income through the conveniences afforded to us by the internet that will not only help us with our debt obligations, but also empower us to save, invest and get really rich in the future.
Robo-advisors are diversified investment accounts that are automatically managed by a computer algorithm (as opposed to a human money manager). If you want to invest, but don’t have the money, or don’t want to invest with a money manager, robo-advisors are for you! Robo-advisors make investing easier—and cheaper—so they’re perfect for new investors.
If you have graphic design skills then you could make money online by creating and selling your own design elements, like templates, fonts, graphics, and other assets. This is a great way to earn extra money and build up a portfolio of work, which could lead to you picking up freelance graphic design jobs. Websites like Envato Elements pay you a fee per element sold, which can become quite profitable if your work is popular.
Whether it’s an important consumer application, a specialist app to solve a particular niche problem, or even a time-wasting game you can play on your phone, you can create a massively successful business if you build software that helps people. (Look at the rise of Slack—the team communication software that went from side project to billion-dollar company in just 2 years.)

Amazon Mechanical Turk is a service that lets you make money online through doing paid microtasks. Each task is something simple that requires human interaction like rating search results, checking for the right spelling on search terms, categorizing the tone of an article, or even basic translating. You can do these tasks from anywhere you want and make money online from the world’s largest e-retailer.
Note: When I say we will be creating a website using WordPress, I don't mean creating one through the WordPress website. Websites created through the WordPress website are severely limited in what you can do with them and offer very little flexibility overall. The method I teach enables you to create truly professional websites by installing the WordPress software and you won't be limited in any way.
Launch jacking today is extremely saturated with people who are either reviewing a product that hasn’t even come out yet (in other words, they’re just repeating the sales copy), or from insiders who get early access to the product. The problem with being an ‘insider’, is that the privilege is only given to those who hype the product. If you become known for giving unbiased reviews (saying anything that could hurt sales), product creators will stop giving you early access to their products. So to remain in the circle, you have to sacrifice honesty… or at the very least walk a fine line.
What's great about the business plan that I teach you is not only the income level you will accomplish if you follow through, but all that you will learn in the process. The first lesson you are taught is how to build a website or blog using WordPress on your own domain (without having to learn how to code). The skills you learn in this course will enable you to build all kinds of online businesses and open the door for all kinds of entrepreneurial projects you may have.
The categories or sub-themes will need to be divided into themes (or sections). You will need to choose a logical order that makes sense in your course. That can be a chronological, difficulty or logical order, that takes the student from one point of knowledge to the next. For unstructured and self-directed learning topics, the order might be irrelevant, and you only need an introduction and different theme/categories to help them navigate the topics.
In this lesson I teach you how to set up a mailing list and autoresponder newsletter using Aweber. This includes how to do automated messages with preset time intervals, as well as one-time broadcasts. I go over how to set up an inbox sign up form and a lightbox sign up form (the one that pops up). I also go over best practices for setting your mailing list so you grow your list faster and build a loyal following.
If you're ready to enter the ecommerce fray, you could sell your own stuff. Of course, along with selling your own stuff on your own website comes a whole slew of both responsibilities and technical configuration and requirements. For starters, you'll need a website and a hosting account. You'll also need a merchant account like ones offered by Stripe or PayPal. Then you'll need to design that site, build a sales funnel, create a lead magnet and do some email marketing.
The music industry might not be as strong as it was in the 80s, but there are still plenty of ways to make money online as a musician. Sites like SoundBetter let you sell your services as a songwriter, producer, or session musician to thousands of customers a month. While Musicbed, Music Vine, Marmoset, and SongFreedom are perfect for licensing your music to TV shows, movies, and web series.
The first follows the startup path we outlined above: You have a disruptive idea for an app or piece of software, you validate the idea with real customers, and then raise money to hire developers or a development studio to build, launch, and scale your software. If you’ve done everything right, your software will be accepted to the Apple and Google Stores and you’ll make money every time someone downloads it or pays for a premium feature.
Once you have that problem or need nailed, the next step is to validate that idea and make sure you’ve actually got customers who will pay for it. This means building a minimum viable product, getting objective feedback from real customers, incorporating updates, testing the market for demand, and getting pricing feedback to ensure there’s enough of a margin between your costs and what consumers are willing to pay.
Survey Junkie is another popular online marketing and survey site, and they’re also a great option if you’re looking for ways to make money online. Survey Junkie lets you complete offers in exchange for points which can be redeemed for awesome rewards such as cash, gift cards, and more. All you need to do is fill out some basic information and you can get started completing offers right away.

According to Forbes, the 2015 online course market was going to be over $100 billion. The growth of this industry continues to trend upwards, and it is still the perfect time to get started with teaching online courses. With new learners from around the world starting to purchase online courses, the market will continue to rapidly grow in 2016. Currently, Udemy, one of the most popular online course marketplaces, has over 9 million students from 190 countries. The top 5 instructors have earned a combined $13,410,792 a of July, 2015.
1) It takes time and patience. When building out your website it’s going to take 6 months before you see real Google rankings and a breakthrough in traffic and sales. For the vast majority, they’re not willing to wait this long. You’ll feel like you’re working for free at first but be stubborn enough to stick it through this initial period and you’re building an income-producing asset that you’ll reap the rewards from for years to come.

The music industry might not be as strong as it was in the 80s, but there are still plenty of ways to make money online as a musician. Sites like SoundBetter let you sell your services as a songwriter, producer, or session musician to thousands of customers a month. While Musicbed, Music Vine, Marmoset, and SongFreedom are perfect for licensing your music to TV shows, movies, and web series.
When I spent my year building 160 websites like a madman, it taught me more than any class ever could. Also remember that I had nobody to ask questions when I got stuck and I believe this is what made me successful in the end; it forced me to experiment and just move forward. You really don't need anything more than what is taught in the video series; that will give you your entire foundation and from there you can take this business in all kinds of directions.
More and more companies and startups especially are embracing remote work—where you use online collaboration and communication tools to do your work from wherever you want. And you don’t have to be a 20-something hotshot designer or coder to reap the benefits of working remotely. Many remote positions are for customer support positions or other customer-facing positions that don’t require specialized skill sets.

Rather than making money through subscriptions, YouTube channels are based on a traditional advertising system. Meaning the more viewers you get, the more you make. Once you’re approved for the YouTube Partner Program and can start including ads on your videos, with every 1,000 views, you will make approximately $2-$4. Which might not seem like a lot, but if you have 100 videos with 5,000 views a month each, that would be $1,000–$2,000 already. Just imagine if your videos start hitting millions of views!
The audiobook industry is booming, yet only 5% of books ever get made into audio format. If you’ve got a background in acting, or if people have said you’ve got a voice made for the radio, you can make extra money recording audio versions of independent and popular books. Sites like ACX connect authors with audiobook performers. So, whether you’re an author looking for more ways to sell your book, or an actor/voice actor looking to make some extra income, you can sell your services online.

If you have a knack for organization, you can make money online as a virtual assistant helping people to keep their days in order. A virtual assistant will do everyinthing from bookkeeping to research, database entry, booking travel, and managing email. It can also be an awesome way to rub shoulders with some very important people, build up your professional network, and of course grow another stream of income.

But if you're willing to put in the effort, complete the lessons, and work all the way through the course — you can be successful. If you're looking for an “easy way out” this list is not for you.

But don't make the mistake of thinking this will be a passive source of income—you're on call whenever you have a guest and you'll always need to keep the place clean for incoming visitors. On top of just renting on Airbnb, consider offering your guests paid add-ons, like Lauren Gheysens', Royal Day Out in London, England—where she gives visitors a local's only tour of the city, complete with bespoke 18th century costumes.
I am really longing to start an online business but most often I am discouraged by the whole Paypal thing. Everybody seems to be using Paypal. However, I lived in a country where Paypal payment is not authorized. Can one actually strive with affiliate marketing without Paypal? I do freelance translation and my client accepted to pay to me through other avenues like Payoneer just because I am good at what I do and they couldn’t afford to let me go.

It’s an excellent opportunity to offer technical training courses that teach people how to learn a much-needed skill, or accomplish an important task. It could also prove to be an important testing ground for your educational courses. If you are able to market your course on the site, against direct competition, you may be able to direct marketing to the general public, using a website, videos, or even an affiliate marketing program.
The best way to save money, and essentially make money, when you dine out is to use a service like SB Local. With it, you'll effortlessly receive cashback when you dine out or shop at any of the 1,000s of participating restaurants and retailers nationwide. And, you won't have to show a coupon or do anything other than pay with the credit card you link to the Swagbucks Local program.

Note: Most keywords will NOT qualify. Thorough keyword research is a long and difficult process, but finding high paying and easily rankable keywords in the beginning will make the entire rest of the process that much easier. Don’t give up, even when it seems like there are very few valuable, rankable keywords out there – there are LITERALLY millions!


A fitness site can have numerous revenue streams. Create healthy eating plans and recipes and lock them away as premium content. Promote and sell a fitness training course, eBook, or a series of videos. Or advertise your own personal fitness services on your site. Topfithub is a good example of a fitness site with decent video content alongside product reviews.

Webinars are quite possibly one of the most potent ways you can make an exorbitant amount of money online. You'll need an audience to train and you'll need to know what you're talking about. Of course, this usually requires having a website and some semblance of an online presence. However, people can still do webinars without all of that. For example, you might have a sizable social media following and you train them every week on something to do with social media. But you will need a product to embed and sell at some point. Don't worry about it in the beginning. In my experience, the best webinar platform out there is GoToWebinar. 

We’ve definitely had different experiences though. The information inside the Internet Jetset course is really good, and unless we’re talking about something different, it’s only $47 (which isn’t unreasonable for what you’re getting). I did mention in my review though that I wouldn’t recommend it as your only source of information for building an online business.
Ebay is a bellwether. It's been around since nearly the start of the online boom. But, like any other platform, success can seem fleeting if you don't know what you're doing. Selling items on eBay, professionally that is, can be an art form. Getting people interested in your auctions isn't always easy, especially when there's hefty competition and low demand for what you're selling.

A website called AchieveMint gives you points for engaging in healthy activities, like exercise, tracking your eating habits, or even taking health related surveys. Points can be redeemed either for cash (10,000 points are worth $10) or for Amazon Gift Cards. The app actually connects with other health apps, like Fitbit and MyFitnessPal, to track your progress.
