It is a good module to go through however if you have the time because it gives you further insight into the tactics and strategies online marketers have used. Sometimes knowing what not to do is just as important as knowing what you should do. It can save you a lot of time down the road so you don’t fall victim to snake oil salesmen peddling yesterday’s junk (and there are many out there).
Want a more reasonable example? How about ME! I began my very first affiliate marketing website, Drive-Safely.net, in January of 2011. By November of 2011, I quit my full time job as an OTR truck driver to focus on my online business full-time. Here we are in the middle of 2015 and I’m having my best year ever. Not only was I able to make money online fast, but it has been sustainable.
To get inspiration for the modules, I would jump on Twitter any time I saw a conversation about Scrivener. Through Twitter, I connected with people who used the program and could provide valuable insights. I even found people to test the beta version of my course through Twitter, and this was also a great way to figure out how much people would pay.
Re-selling web hosting will enable you to make money hosting your own client’s websites. Large hosting companies like HostGator allow you to white label their hosting services. You could start your own hosting business or, if you are a web designer, include hosting into your web design packages. And the best of it is the hosting companies take care of the hosting for you, so all you need to worry about is selling.
Etsy is the most popular online marketplace for handmade goods and crafts. From bracelets to phone cases, rings, furniture, and more, Etsy is perfect for anyone who is creative and wants to sell their handmade creations. As long as you have the space, this can make for one of the best ways to make money online that can be started with a very limited investment. Consider these 5 steps to starting an Etsy store, from Handmadeology.
17. Amazon – Have you heard of FBA? It stands for “Fulfilled by Amazon” and it’s getting pretty popular. Basically, you buy products (in bulk is best) and ship them to Amazon for them to store. When your products sell, Amazon packs them up, ships them out and sends you the money (after taking their cut). There are people making a full-time living from FBA, while others just do it for some extra money.
The best way to start is to take advantage of the 10 free lessons inside the Wealthy Affiliate community. Let me know once you’ve created your free account and I’ll be on hand to guide you every step of the way. As well as the free training you’ll also get access to the free website builder so you can begin on the right foot. I hope this helps and I look forward to working with you 🙂

Interesting overview onf John Crestani’s Internet Jetset. It reminds me of Anik Singal’s Inbox Blueprint where there is good training that is well organized, but as soon as you try to implement anything, you are spending money to join this and that. What bothered me is that I was somewhat guilted out about not spending the money — like I wasnt serious about becoming an affiliate marketer if my wallet wasnt bottomless. Is the same attitude displayed by IJ?
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.
If you follow Wealthy Affiliate’s free training you’ll learn how to create a website that naturally attracts daily, free traffic. Once you have a website with traffic there’s a whole variety of ways you can monetise it. RevGlue is just one of many advertising platforms you can partner with to earn money by putting ads in your site. MediaVine and Google Ads are better known ad platforms.

John Crestani’s Internet Jetset and Super Affiliate System may not be the most comprehensive online marketing program you can buy, but for the price, you are getting some of the best training out there. With the fast money, fast cars intro video, I thought this had to be a scam. Instead, it turned out to be a unique blend of beginner tutorials and advanced strategy not found in most programs. It might not be your one-stop shop, but for those serious about making money online, Internet Jetset could be your secret weapon.
You must implement all strategies taught in the Super Affiliate System Course. You must watch all training videos you have access to, review all resources, and complete every corresponding action item in the Super Affiliate System Course after purchasing the course. The course’s content is subject to change, but you are required to complete all material of the course that was available to you at your time of purchase. The course is concise with short videos, so we require you to complete the course before claiming refund. You must also show documented proof that you have made attempts to implement all of the strategies taught in the Super Affiliate System after purchasing the Super Affiliate System (do this inside of your Google Doc as you implement these strategies).
Research individual companies in your desired niche: If possible, it’s always better to become an affiliate directly with a company (if they have an internal affiliate program), as no one else will be dipping into your commission rate. This is the preferred route for most of the prominent affiliate marketers, including Pat Flynn. Unfortunately, it’s also the most work, as you’ll have to do the research yourself to see who offers programs (they’re usually listed in the website footer).

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.


Amazon offers a service called Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA), which can be extremely useful for arbitrage sellers, or others selling their own products. If you opt for FBA, Amazon will store, pick, pack and deliver your products. That means you can scale your arbitrage business quickly as you don’t have to store products in your own home or waste time with postage.


In this lesson I show you how to use the most powerful link building tool available on the internet: PostRunner. PostRunner is a tool where you can submit articles for backlinks through a main user interface, and that article will be posted on any website of your choice within the system (there are thousands of websites within the system to choose from, across all categories). The websites you can submit to are all owned by individual PostRunner users (instead of one big entity), so it makes the backlinks you get perfectly safe to use directly on your "money websites" and extremely powerful overall.

Balfour estimates that Udemy generates about 50% of her sales through its own built-in audience and promotions ; Udemy now has more than three million students. She’s occasionally been featured on their homepage, which also spurs sales. The other half is the result of marketing to her own list, as well as cross-promotions she’s independently arranged with other Udemy instructors. “People who are already on the [Udemy] platform are the easiest sell,” she says. She’s also marketed successfully by answering questions on Quora, creating YouTube videos, and doing Q&As on Spreecast, a social video platform. “Quora and YouTube are the best revenue generators because that’s where people go for education,” she says.


Writing an eBook and selling it on your blog can be a great money maker. Your eBook should be directly relevant to your blog’s content so you can sell your book to your existing audience. Creating a recipe eBook for a food blog or an eBook full of training plans to complement your fitness site are just a couple of examples that have the potential to sell.

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.


At this point, you will need to write down your learning goals and objectives. Learning goals are the general statements that you create and define what your course is all about and what it can do for your students. Whereas, ‘learning objectives’ or ‘learning outcomes’ tend to be more specific and more measurable in terms of what you expect your students to learn and be able to do once they complete the course.
To get inspiration for the modules, I would jump on Twitter any time I saw a conversation about Scrivener. Through Twitter, I connected with people who used the program and could provide valuable insights. I even found people to test the beta version of my course through Twitter, and this was also a great way to figure out how much people would pay.

Working as a freelancer is a great way to make money online from the comfort of your own home. The beauty of freelancing is that you can tailor it to suit your needs. You can freelance for a couple of hours a week in the evenings to help save up for a holiday or some much-needed home improvements. Or carve out a full-time job for yourself, giving you a more satisfying work-life balance and enabling you to do the simpler things in life like taking the kids to school. With so many jobs available online, freelancing is becoming more and more popular.
This is something like Experts Exchange, except that it’s more general in nature. As a professional in just about any field, you can offer your expertise on JustAnswer. They are looking for professionals in various fields who will provide answers to reader’s questions. You can make money online by answering these questions and pointing people in the right direction to get the solutions that they need.
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.
Facebook Ads work because they are based on specific demographics, interests, behaviors, and affiliations, and collect contact information e.g. email addresses. To get their attention when using the Ads, you can start by sharing relevant content e.g. a blog-post or a webinar, and then collect their email addresses to promote your school through email.

If I have a blog that is getting 100,000 page views a month that means that I’m probably getting at least 50,000 people to the site (most blogs will do between 1.2 to 1.4 pages per session). That means I have to try and get some small percentage of those people to buy something from me if I really want to do well. If I can’t get them to buy something then (in some cases) I have ads running on the site that will make me money anyways.


Now, I know what you’re thinking. Most of the software and apps you use on a regular basis are made by massive companies or established development studios. Well, yes. But many successful apps, particularly those in the Apple and Google stores, are created and marketed by individuals and small businesses. In fact, independent developers made $20 billion in the App Store in 2016 alone.

No website (or Facebook fan page, etc.) is complete until it has a sign up form to collect email addresses (otherwise, you’re leaving money on the table). Every business in the world should have an email list, as well as a newsletter they send out on a regular basis. No matter what kind of online website you have (business website, personal blog, etc.), get a sign up form on there and start collecting emails immediately (even if you don’t have a clear idea of what you’re going to do with that mailing list yet). One of the most common regrets of anyone with an online presence is “not having started collecting emails sooner.”
John Crestani’s Internet Jetset and Super Affiliate System may not be the most comprehensive online marketing program you can buy, but for the price, you are getting some of the best training out there. With the fast money, fast cars intro video, I thought this had to be a scam. Instead, it turned out to be a unique blend of beginner tutorials and advanced strategy not found in most programs. It might not be your one-stop shop, but for those serious about making money online, Internet Jetset could be your secret weapon.
All of these course title examples have something different to say and their ‘message’ can get across your audience through a unique way. Whether students will become interested in it or not, depends on their individual needs first and firstmost. However, it also comes down to how you will structure it, and how you will position it in the right context so that it works well with your online school and what you need your brand to project.
It’s sometimes hard to comprehend just how much people love t-shirts. And with the right niche, marketing, and tools, you can create an online t-shirt business that makes you extra money online while you sleep. (Even Bloomberg and Forbes feature stories from entrepreneurs who've done just that.) Services like TeeSpring make it easier than ever to create a t-shirt drop-shipping business where they handle the sales, printing, and shipping, and you’re only responsible for design and marketing. Or you can even buy into well-established franchise businesses like Rhea Lana that sell fashionable, affordable kids clothing and get the backing of a proven organization to fuel your online sales. For more tips, check out this simple guide to launching and marketing an online clothing store by my friends over at Selz.

Teaching and tutoring English as a second language is a great way to make money online, not to mention open some doors for you to travel the world if you'd like. While full ESL (English as a Second Language) accreditation is recommended, as long as you’re a native speaker and have the ability to teach, there are people in countries such as Hong Kong or the UAE who are willing to pay upwards of $25/hr for you to tutor them English via Skype. Check out Indeed, Learn4Good and Remote.co for remote english tutoring jobs or sign up on a specialized site like VerbalPlanet or Chegg Tutors.


If you have your own eCommerce store, social media is the perfect platform to showcase your products. Demonstrate your products in use and tell your social following why they need to buy your merchandise. Most social media channels allow you to add ‘buy’ buttons your pages, allowing your followers to easily click through to your site and make a purchase.
You must document all of the proof you perform in a Google Doc, including when you performed the action. It is imperative that you document this data in the Google Doc immediately after you perform each requirement listed above, because Google will track when you made updates to the document, and this is how we will know that you met the requirements in the time allotted. We want you to have success, therefore we expect you to start implementing what we’ve taught you within 7 days of your purchase. So, you should document all of this and include your name, your purchase email address, and share that document with us at support-at-johncrestani.com within 7 days of your purchase today. You must attempt this for at least 7 days.
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.
It can take time to build up your personal freelance business. Yet, there is more demand than ever for freelancers. So, if you want to kick start making money online through freelancing you can join one of the top freelance networks, such as Flexjobs, SolidGigs, Contena, Upwork, Fiverr, or PeoplePerHour. Sign up, build your profile, upload some samples of your work and start making extra money by doing small freelance jobs.
E-books represent about 20 percent of all book sales in the U.S. The good news is you don’t have to be a publisher with deep pockets to get in on the action. As a solo internet entrepreneur, you can sell ebooks directly from your own website. You can sell your own works or sell a public domain work. Simply upload it to your website (or seller account on Amazon) and start publicizing it on your social media platforms, on your email list, your blog, website, etc.
My next self-funded business hit $160,000 in revenue in its first year alone. After that first taste of self-made success, I’ve gone on to sign consulting contracts worth tens of thousands of dollars with startups like LinkedIn and Google, launch profitable online courses, and build a following of hundreds of thousands for this blog and my podcast series.
I trust your Review of Internet Jetset is unbiased. I am happy that such a legitimate affiliate training platform exists because every time I read such reviews, the final verdicts commonly have been negative. It seems that there is almost no platform we could trust nowadays. So IJ is one such genuine platform in the ocean of scammers. Thumbs up for IJ!
Better yet, you can even upload your own book to one of the world’s largest book sellers: Amazon. With Amazon self-publishing, you set the price, retain the rights to your book, and get access to Amazon’s massive audience. For every sale, you keep 70% with Amazon taking the remainder as a fee. If you want to get started, check out Leslie Samuel's great guide to selling eBooks online or follow Tara Gentile on CreativeLive as she shows you how to use your existing body of work to write an eBook within the next week. Who knows, you might just write one of the best business books of this year!
Mechanical Turk: Amazon's Mechanical Turk is a resource for doing human-intelligence tasks, or as the site commonly refers to them, HITs. You get paid a very small fee for any given HIT and you'll need a good deal of volume to make a substantial amount of money. But it is a resource you can use in your spare time to generate a small income online. 
It's important to keep in mind that participants don't "qualify" for all surveys. Market researchers often want opinions from users who match specific demographics or who are in-market for particular products and services. If you attempt a survey that you ultimately don't qualify for, Swagbucks will give you at least one point in its rewards program. You know what they say: "A penny for your thoughts".
It makes sense that your newsletter will include multiple ‘Call to Action’ (CTAs) points for the various pieces of content you wish to promote. But, in this case, you will need to have one primary CTA that focuses on an action you would like your subscribers to carry out. Your primary CTA will be in a more prominent position e.g. a button “Join our latest course” centered in the end. And, remember, don’t overdo it with the secondary call to actions, you don’t want to confuse your readers!
Many people fancy themselves as designers. If you have a unique idea for a new product then it may be time to get it designed. This can be a long process involving prototypes, discussions with factories, package design, and much more. However, the profits once the product is on the market could be substantial. And remember, with Amazon FBA, your products can all be stored and shipped by Amazon, giving you time to think up your next invention. Learn more about Amazon FBA with my How To Start An Amazon FBA Business Guide.

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.
A spin-off for web designers is to offer a landing page creation service. Well-optimized landing pages can be the difference between a successful and a failing business. And, as creating the perfect landing page isn’t easy, this is a service many businesses are prepared to pay for. I know people who are earning 6 figures per year and all they do is create landing pages for businesses. There’s serious money to be made.

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.


27. Sponsored/paid posts – Many blogs publish sponsored and paid posts. Sponsored posts are basically just posts about a specific brand, product or service. A company will pay you to publish an article about it. It’s similar with other paid posts as well. Your basically selling the spot for the article on your site. If you decide to take this route, you’ll want to build your traffic before you will get many offers.
Ever since the idea of online auctions came into existence, the online selling market has been on the rise. Many are interested, but don’t know how to get started. There are still all kinds of ways to make money by selling online, whether you’re selling what you already have or buying and selling like a store. Before we get started, here are a few general tips when selling anything online:
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.
Proz.com is a site where you can get paid to translate all kinds of documents, including files and even conversations. The site provides you with an opportunity to list your services as a translator. They offer opportunities in Spanish, German, Italian, Chinese, Arabic, Japanese and other languages, and specialize in legal, medical, technical and other fields.
If you’re a skilled worker in a specific niche, like marketing, design, or software development, there are specialty marketplaces that cater just to you. These are amazing places to make money online as you know that the people visiting them are looking specifically for the skills you have. Check out places like 99Designs or Dribbble for designers, Cloudpeeps for marketing and SEO professionals, and TopTal, Crew, or Gigster for high-level software developers. Once you've built up your development skills, you can begin building a brand for yourself as a higher-value consultant and start charging brands for larger projects like implementing an entire WordPress security overhaul or migrating a website from http to https.
It is a good module to go through however if you have the time because it gives you further insight into the tactics and strategies online marketers have used. Sometimes knowing what not to do is just as important as knowing what you should do. It can save you a lot of time down the road so you don’t fall victim to snake oil salesmen peddling yesterday’s junk (and there are many out there).
As well as selling your eBooks, Amazon can also create paperback copies of your book. CreateSpace, an Amazon-owned company, will help you self-publish your book. A relatively straightforward process, you must upload your work to CreateSpace and submit it for review. Your book will then be displayed on Amazon, and printed on demand and shipped by CreateSpace when purchased. And you can collect up to 70% royalties for each book sold.
Double check yourself, before you double wreck yourself. Make sure everything you send to a company, whether a résumé, an email or a portfolio, is good to go. Double check your grammar and wording, and for God’s sake use spell check! This is especially important when it comes to the company’s name. Don’t spell their name wrong and be sure to type it how they type it (e.g. Problogger, not Pro Blogger).
