The peer-to-peer concept is coming to virtually every corner of human existence. That includes the hospitality industry. Through AirBnB you can actually rent out your house for various lengths of time for a predetermined fee. That gives you an extra income on your house and gives the visitor the benefit of having an entire house, rather than being crammed into a single hotel room.
Do you see all of those articles, tutorials and guides all over the Internet? Somebody wrote every one of them! If you have decent writing ability (no, you don’t need a journalism degree!), and knowledge in a few specific topic areas, you can be one of those writers. It’s an opportunity to make money online and without ever leaving your home. It’s also the kind of venture that can start out as a small side business, but grow into a full-time career.
Many big businesses are looking for social media influencers to become long-term ambassadors for their brand. This would involve you working closely with one particular band, and promoting their clothes, products, and services. You may also be restricted from promoting other brands, so check out the small print before agreeing to any long-term agreements.
Whether you have a website or are still dreaming up ideas for a blog, you can also look into affiliate marketing. With affiliate marketing, you partner with brands and businesses within the content of your website. If you mention a product or service, you link to that produce or service using a unique affiliate code you received when you signed up for that particular affiliate program. From there, you’ll make money any time someone buys a product or service through your link.
I can say that the Internet Jetset course itself is not a scam as it has decent content and information to be learnt by beginners. However, the “system” is not really a system. It’s pretty weak as it offers no tools for beginners to use and start building their online business. What John offers is a list of links to external websites and software. Some of the links are even naked affiliate links without any guidance.
Getting businesses to advertise on your podcast, either at the beginning or end or both is a great way to create a revenue through podcasts. Most businesses won’t be keen to advertise on your podcast until you can prove a large number of listeners. Therefore, it is unlikely you will be able to start out from the get-go with sponsors. But once you accumulate regular listeners or a high number of downloads from iTunes, you can start to sell advertising space on your podcasts.
If you have experience as a personal assistant, secretary, admin assistant, or something in a similar field, then becoming an online PA may be a great role for you. Many professionals want someone to help organize their business and personal affairs. Jobs could include sending emails, managing financial affairs, booking flights and arranging day-to-day activities. If you are interested in this line of work there are many PA agencies that are crying out for reliable assistants.
That's where Swagbucks comes in. Marketers and brands literally pay Swagbucks users to try their products and services. In many cases, the amount of money that marketers pay will cover a portion of the cost of the product or service itself. However, there are some cases where companies reward users with more than the cost of the service. This is often the case with subscription services where advertisers want to entice consumers into an initial trial of their service with the hope that consumers will stay subscribed after the trial period.
What’s the catch? None, really. Cash back apps act as affiliates for many online merchants, which means that whenever you make a purchase through one of the apps, they get a small commission — but then, they give you a portion of that commission as “cash back”. For example, if I buy a pair of Nike shoes through the Ebates app (or website) and spend $75, Ebates may get a $10 commission but then they’ll pass $7 back to me. It’s basically a way to get sale prices on stuff that isn’t on sale!

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.

Some subjects are much better paid than others, so although you may love the idea of writing about travel (badly paid) a better bet would be a niche like finance (much higher rates of pay). Check out the Pro Blogger job board for high paid freelance writing jobs – other places to look might be Textbroker or you can look at the “gigs” section on Craigslist.
So, I put together a free master course for you to take that spreads out all of the work involved in starting a blog, into a series of action-packed lessons. My free course breaks the entire process of starting a blog down into an incredibly simple 7-day process for going from 0 to publishing (and promoting) your first blog post in just 1 week. I can't recommend it enough.
John Crestani has been using the program with Amazon.com to earn the six-figure digit income in a year. After mastering the program, you can also teach it to your friends so that everyone can benefit in the long-term. To start earning, there is no need of building a complex website. Alternatively, you will not invest a lot of effort to start earning online. You just need to set up the marketing campaign.
I am guessing using the Facebook boost feature would help bring in the first couple of likes and have the potential make a post go viral but that’s not free traffic and not taught in this module. John says in this module that he’s going to share the “information that’s going to help you get to the next level, that’s going to help you become a super affiliate” which I find hard to believe after digesting what he taught in JetSet but maybe that’s something he wants you to learn in Super Affiliate System.

5. Fiverr – Fiverr is a great place to make a few bucks or spend a few bucks if you need some of the services people offer. Basically, everything is $5. You either pay $5 or charge $5. They call them “gigs.” You can offer your services however you choose. If you sell art and you’re fine selling pieces for $5 each, that’s a gig. If you’re a graphic designer and you want to offer your services for $10/hour, simply offer a 30 minute gig. If they need two hours of graphic design, they pay you $20, or $10/hour by buying four gigs.
Using a food delivery service can’t necessarily earn you money, but it can help you save you money if you constantly find yourself throwing out half the food you buy. Food delivery services send a box of food every week with new, sometimes unique vegetables, meat, fruit, and so on. If you don’t have time to shop and want simple meal-prep that leads to a good meal, a food subscription service may be perfect for you.
Moving on from that though he then covers an example of one of his own videos and goes over how to optimize the video for search traffic. One of his first videos only had about 190 views at the time he recorded the course but looking at all of them now, they are all getting close to 1 thousand views which actually does show he knows something about YouTube Marketing.

Many new users prefer to start off with the 100% Free Offers, which is what we usually recommend. These offers are great for beginners because nothing is required other than several minutes of your time. The payouts on these offers are lower, but you’re not paying a dime to complete them and they’ll get you use to the CashCrate system. After you’ve started making money online with our free offers, you can always move on to trial offers and increase your earnings.
The second mistake worth mentioning is that my email list includes a lot of people who followed me when I wrote more about budgeting, so the match wasn’t 100% aligned. I’ve asked people to unsubscribe who aren’t into the new “design your dream life” theme of my blog, but many still remain. This is totally fine from a content perspective, but it just means that selling to this list is harder.
One of the most beautiful and exciting qualities about blogging is that you can create a blog that deals with any subject area that you are either knowledgeable or passionate about (and preferably both!). You can write about personal finance, careers, real estate, getting into business, technology, cooking, travel, personal health, or just about any topic you choose.
Regarding the business I teach, as long as you follow through with the directions in my website / videos, not only will you start to generate some income, you'll learn A TON about how to build and run an online business. And because there are hardly any overhead expenses, there really is nothing to lose. There are very few businesses that are this inexpensive to start in that offer such high potential (the amount of money that can made online is virtually limitless once you get good). I recommend you give it your all, learn everything you can, and try to do some of your own experimenting as well. Try and think how you can take everything you are learning to build something even bigger than what I teach (be creative). That's the best way to approach this business.
Note: Every now and then we will have a keyword with really high potential monthly earnings that just barely doesn’t qualify (like if there was just one website with a PageRank of 4 in the top 4 results and the rest were lower). In cases like this, I would keep the keyword on my spreadsheet instead of deleting it (and come back to it in the future once my website is bigger and stronger).
Each of the platforms are different in how you get paid, when you get paid and what you get paid for. But most typically pay out a full calendar month after the current month. For instance, if you earned $1000 in August, you would typically be paid out during the first week of October. But some pay on the 1st and 15th or later in the month. The most important thing for beginners is to just get started. Once you start getting results then you can begin planning out your months in order to reach your financial goals. Like if you wanted to reach a certain income goal by March, well you really need to be hustling hard in January because March is going to be the payout month of January’s efforts and activity.

Super Affiliate System 3.0 (rebranded from Internet Jetset System) Video #2, my introductory series to affiliate marketing. This video goes over how to get people to view your link recommendations. In affiliate marketing, your business lives and dies based on how much traffic you can send. Zero traffic, zero potential for customers, zero potential for commissions.

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).

The great news about MTurk is that it’s super easy to join. Log on with your Amazon ID, answer a few questions, and you’re ready to start working. But you’ll need to be motivated if you want to make a lot of money since the name of the game is volume. This means you’ll need to stay focused and be productive without a boss looming over your shoulder.

Now, it’s time to start creating and uploading content. Make sure you’re using a high-enough quality camera (most smartphones will work but I’d suggest at least having a tripod so your footage isn’t shaky), but don’t worry about being perfect at first. The beauty of YouTube is that you can continue to test out different content and styles as you find what works for you. Instead, stick to a regular schedule to build up your subscriber base.

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.
If you want to clear some space out in your house and have a big stack of books you’ve been holding onto for too long, you can make money selling your books and textbooks online. Stores like Half Priced Books and others will give you cents on the dollar for each of your current books while you can check what your book is worth by simply entering the ISBN number on Book Scouter.
I don’t doubt his Paid Traffic knowledge but I do doubt his SEO knowledge. If you want to make a full time income from SEO you need to set up your own tests to see how the algorithm works and commit 100% to it. Google makes changes to their algorithm daily and the people making serious money with SEO don’t give away the secrets to the Algorithm for free.

It can also work together while paying for various different items that go together. Even McDonald’s uses the same tactic and they call it meals. Let’s say you buy a Big Mac for $4 and you want fries with it for $1.5, McDonald’s convinces you that paying $5.99 for a meal that also includes a soft drink, which will cost $1.5 makes you save some money. In reality, it has sold you one more item for 50c, which costs them a few cents.


You can sell anything online to make money. The better question is what you should sell online that you’re interested in. It also depends on your goals. If you’re just trying to get some extra money now, then clothes and electronics are a good bet. If you want to open a store and sell things online full time, then you’ll need to explore your options based on your interests.
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 will show you how to plan out the launching of 10 passive income websites in an Excel spreadsheet, as well as the backlinking plan for each of them. The plan should take 3 to 6 months to execute, but it will teach you invaluable lessons about how making money online actually works, as well as make you a solid foundation of passive income from which you can grow and experiment. The goal: $5,000 passive / month.
Is there a product or service that you are particularly enthusiastic about? If you are, you may be able to develop a website that is built around selling it. You don’t have to be the actual provider of the product or service either. There are many businesses that offer these products and will allow you to sell them on an affiliate basis. For example, you may be able to sell a product on your website for a commission of 20% or 30% of the sale price.
derek, thank you! I have already created a language course and now i need to put the videos and pdfs up online and sell it….can you give us some direction about what platforms to use to host the course? Should i use a course builder by someone else? custom create a website? and for paid courses, how do you keep multiple people from downloading or viewing what one person paid for (sharing)? I appreciate your guidance.

Holly told me she started writing content in 2011. At the time, she still worked a full-time job but created content online part-time to supplement her income. Over time, she was able to double and triple her rates until she could quit her full-time job to write. These days, she makes bank as a freelance writer and teaches others to do the same via her online course, Earn More Writing.
Choose your niche and check for demand: The golden course combination is when you can find an in-demand niche that aligns with your skills and unique experiences. A great way to do this is to use Google Trends and Google’s Keyword Planner to look for average monthly search volume for keywords related to your proposed course content. Are people actively looking for high-quality information about this subject? Of course, if you’re already creating content for a blog, coaching service, or a site like Medium, you can test demand this way for free just like Bryan did.

I can say that the Internet Jetset course itself is not a scam as it has decent content and information to be learnt by beginners. However, the “system” is not really a system. It’s pretty weak as it offers no tools for beginners to use and start building their online business. What John offers is a list of links to external websites and software. Some of the links are even naked affiliate links without any guidance.
If you want to make a lot of money investing, look it as a long-term strategy and don’t freak out over short-term market fluctuations. Just use dollar-cost averaging and buy a broad range of stocks that will help shelter you from any downturns (such as the index funds we discussed.) Then you won’t need to waste your own precious time, money, and energy trying to outsmart the market.
Another big lesson I’ve learned is to go deep when you’re trying to reach an audience or develop a platform. One way to build a really profitable course is a strategy I’ve developed called “the 4-deep technique.” This technique asks you to niche down at least four levels until you’re really at the source of someone’s problem. Start with the pain then come up with a solution. If you want to create a successful product, it needs to be a pain reliever or something that solves someone’s problem in a way nothing else can.

Whenever someone asks me why I built this course, I always share a story about Frank Abagnale - the guy whose story is portrayed in the movie “Catch Me if You Can.” Abagnale was a notorious fraudster and imposter who assumed no fewer than eight identities to hide from the FBI and police. Not only did he “fake” careers as a physician and a lawyer, but he pretended to be an airline pilot and a professor, too!
Some pages on this site contain affiliate links in which I get paid a commission if a purchase is made. I only endorse products or services I've used or gotten great feedback from. In most cases, I endorse products without being an affiliate or receiving any compensation and would never recommend anything if I had concerns that you might not be satisfied with it.

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.
With drop shipping, you’re effectively partnering with a manufacturer or wholesaler to sell their products. This way, you don’t pay upfront costs to buy inventory, aren’t sitting on unsold items taking up expensive warehouse space, and don’t have to deal with shipping the products yourself. You simply create your site, fill it with drop shippable products, and drive in customers, with almost everything else done for you.

Tools & Resources: I’ve written a pretty comprehensive guide on the best web design software that covers both free and premium software packages. If you’re serious about becoming a web designer, then I recommend purchasing the full Adobe Creative Cloud Suite. At $49.99 per month, this is probably a bargain considering what you can achieve with this set of tools.

Giving presentations is another effective way that helps to connect with and expand your audience with the prospect to get more course sales. Simply, come up with an interesting subject (preferably what you do and know best), and use your public speaking skills at local events – seminars, conferences or Meetup groups. But remember, you will need to come up with a speech that inspires and speaks well to your audience.
