Many people don’t think they know enough of a topic to teach it, but the truth is, you don’t have to be an expert to create and sell an online course. You simply need to know more than most. Plus, the topics you can cover are vast including art or photography, personal development, music, gardening, cooking, marketing, technology, language, and more. Many people have made thousands of dollars a month with online courses teaching things like guitar, how to use specific software, or how to bake bread.
So as a result I’ve personally decided to take a closer look into John Crestani & his businesses to find out the TRUTH about what’s going on – meaning if you’ve been looking to find out more about him (and whether or not he can really help you make money) then you can rest assured that you’ve landed in exactly the right place as in this honest review I’ll be uncovering literally everything there is you need to know. 🙂
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.
Additionally, I would recommend building a freelancing website as a side business (making websites for others), especially at the beginning while you are just starting to develop your passive income portfolio. This is a good way to consistently make some fast cash too (just two gigs per month will make you an extra $1000). Some freelancing advice on how I used to do it can be found here: http://mikeomarphotography.com/freelancing-advice/

There are a variety of tasks that you may be asked to perform. This can include delivering documents, delivering food or restaurant meals, taking pictures of a building for a real estate developer, taking pictures of a menu in an upscale restaurant, or even delivering auto-parts. If you have a good working car (or even a good bicycle), time on your hands, and a lot of energy, this can be a real opportunity to make money online.
Now, if you don’t know people who might want your coaching services, there are a number of online tools and communities that make it incredibly easy to find clients and teach, on just about any topic area you can think of. Community driven platforms like Savvy.is, Clarity.fm, and Coach.me provide you with a network of potential clients to interact with, as well an integrated payment solution.
However, if you're looking for realistic ways you can start earning money online now, then it really truly does boil down to seven paths you can take towards profit. Some will provide you with immediate results, helping you to address your basic monthly necessities such as rent, utilities and groceries, while others have the potential to transform your life by revolutionizing your finances in the long term.
You know those top-down cooking or craft videos you just can’t seem to get away from these days? There are people out there making a living from them. 78% of B2C companies depend on user-generated content, like those videos, for their marketing campaigns. You can sign up as a creator on a site like Darby Smart and potentially work with brands like Nordstrom, Mattel, and BarkBox. Or, learn how to master PPC advertising and you can use the content to build your YouTube following and monetize through ads and views.
It’s one of the oldest and most proven ways to make money – buy low, sell high. The buy low part comes from searching garage sales, estate sales, and even thrift stores to find items that are in good condition (“gently used”) but selling well below what they would if they were brand-new. In this way, you might be able to acquire an item for $5, and later sell it for $50.
There are financial benefits to entrepreneurship, but even more valuable is the freedom to live the life I want. We can (and often do) take a week off for a trip with the kids. I love being able to get up and eat breakfast with my family instead of having to rush out the door. Just being able to take the day off to go to the Zoo has been amazing. Our kids are only young once, right? I relish in the fact I can finally enjoy it.
If you’re willing to take on some risk and have the heart of a true hustler, you can make extra money online doing commission-only sales for startups and other businesses. While you won’t be getting a regular salary, with the right sales strategies and skills as an inside sales rep, you can make decent money for each sale you bring in. And because you’ll most likely be working with startups, if you can negotiate a little equity you could profit big time if you're pitching a solid product and the startup succeeds.
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.
Once you have decided what type of product you are going to sell, you need to decide where to sell them. Selling merchandise on Amazon or eBay aren’t your only options. Creating your own eCommerce store is another way to promote your products and generate sales. Once you have decided what you are going to sell, whether it is white labeled products, your own designs, or other people’s merchandise, you can set up an eCommerce website to display these products.
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.

There’s plenty of work and clients to be found. If you know where to look. To start, you need to know if there is enough demand for your skill to make it worth the effort to go out looking for work. Start by searching for freelance postings on sites like Flexjobs, SolidGigs, Contena, greatcontent or one of the dozens of other skill-specific freelance job boards.

This is so different from other product or service-based companies. Imagine if you were a live yoga instructor. Maybe you can fit 20-30 students in your yoga studio. But after that, you’ll need to pay for a bigger room. Or you’ll need to teach more classes. If you taught a yoga class online, you can open it up to any number of students at practically no extra cost or effort.
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 the Unique Article Wizard strengthening your support websites month after month, your support websites will start to gain some serious authority, and the links on there that are pointing to your main "money websites" will become very powerful. After a while, your "money websites" will become even more powerful themselves, and start generating some serious organic traffic.
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.
I would recommend doing the process described in this video AT LEAST once for each and every support website you have (in other words, one UAW article link to one ezinearticles.com article, one UAW article link to one goarticles.com article, one UAW article link to one blogger.com mini blog, one UAW article link to one hubpages.com article, etc.).
The focus of the presentation should be on the audience and the need you are trying to provide solutions for. Most events allow for some self-promotion in your presentation, but, even if they don’t people will look you up. All you need to have is a good looking website, LinkedIn profile and social media directing them towards the course you are selling.
Running and charging for webinars can be a great way to build a following in your niche, demonstrate that you are an expert in your field, and make a profit. Hosting a webinar can be hard work. They need to first be promoted, provide original and valuable information, and include interactive elements so your audience can ask questions and engage with your topic. However, once you have built up a large blog following, each webinar can be extremely profitable.

If you’ve got a way with words and expertise in a niche, there are plenty of sites that will pay for articles and content you write. Think of the sites you read regularly. What can you contribute to them that would be interesting? Research your niche and then look for ways to pitch articles. Many sites will simply have a submission or contact link in the footer. To get started, check out my full guide to becoming a freelance writer on the side and then submit your articles to places like Instash, Listverse, TopTenz, A List Apart, International Living, FundsforWriters, and Textbroker.

Market your course: The beauty of using a course to make money online is that you can continue to sell it for as long as you’d like. Look for niche communities on Facebook, LinkedIn, or Reddit that might benefit from your content. Guest post on relevant blogs and sites. Look for anywhere you might be able to get in front of the right people. With just a few hours a month you can continue to generate sales.
How many email newsletters are you bombarded with every single day? There’s a reason for that. Marketing to an actively interested group of email subscribers is one of the best ways to make money online. There have even been million-dollar businesses built from simple email newsletters like TheSkimm, or Mister Spoils. Each newsletter targets a specific type of user with interesting, daily content, while also partnering with relevant companies and affiliates to bring in extra money. If this seems daunting, it’s not. Tools like MailChimp, ConvertKit and AWeber make it easier than ever to get started with email marketing. And another great option to consider (with the largest free plan available) is SendPulse, with their ability to send up to 15,000 emails per month to 2,500 subscribers, and then affordable plans starting at under $10/month as you grow from there.

If you don’t know what to make your first website about, a fun first project could be building a website for your new side business: freelancing websites for others. After all, once you’re done with the first four lessons, you’ll be qualified to build fairly basic, but professional looking websites. Then you can start charging people $500 per website to make yourself some extra money! When I first learned how to make a website with WordPress, I used to post my services on Craigslist daily, and I would get at least two to three gigs per month. You can simply make your website YourName.com or YourNameWebsiteCreationServices.com. If you decide to go this route, here is some freelancing advice to help you get started. :)
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.
If you get stuck at any point along the way or have any questions, use Google or your own experimenting to figure out a solution. This will help you out a lot more than simply getting an answer from me and will help you develop the most important skill for any entrepreneur: problem solving. Every single problem you will encounter has been encountered by lots of people before you and there will be documentation online on how to solve it (plus additional information so you fully understand why the solution works). My background is in Finance and I had never built a website until after I graduated from college; everything I've learned I've learned through Google. Use it to your advantage!
It’s not the sort of online money making opportunity that’s covered in glory, but everyone needs a set of eyes to make sure the numbers add up at the end of the year. Every business and most individuals need someone to help prepare tax returns, especially time or resource-strapped small business owners. The Income Tax School provides an array of training programs that'll certify you with tax prep in as little as 10 weeks, and once tax season rolls around you'll be able to charge an average of $229 per return as a freelance tax preparer with this side business idea, reports CNBC.
High-ticket consulting or coaching: You could sell your own high-ticket consulting or coaching products from your website. You'll still need a website, merchant account, sales funnel, lead magnet and many other items. But you can easily earn a substantial amount of money from each individual customer, making it well worth the arduous setup required. 

Normally you’ll be asked to test a few websites by visiting them and to document and record your reactions and thoughts as you go through it. It’s really easy to get set up making extra money online by testing websites. All you need to do is sign up to the following services: UserTesting.com, Userlytics, TryMyUI, Userfeel, TestingTime (UK only), or Side Income Jobs.
“The program is a way to have more more people promoting it and to generate more commission from Crestani’s affiliate links”: while it is encouraged to promote the SAS program, there is plenty of other material provided to allow the student to promote other products. And yes, many of the other services to be subscribed to are John’s affiliate links.
If you have an eye for design and some experience of creating websites, then you could offer your services as a freelance web designer. You will need to create your own stylish website and have a few other projects that you can show potential clients to demonstrate your skills. You will also need to initially spend time emailing businesses to promote your services and find work.

The specific plan I teach is designed to make you $5,000 per month in passive income earnings, based on 10 websites, with each website having a targeted earnings level of at least $500 each. Once you understand the process though, you can decide to build 20 of these websites, or 100! When you stop is up to you (and yes, there are people making tens of thousands of dollars per month on the Internet based on these concepts - they just love the work and don't ever stop building new websites or expanding their current ones!).

Clearly, there's a lot of demand on Amazon, and if any product is going to sell, it's going to sell well on Amazon. But the goal here is to source the right products that will easily sell at the world's largest online retailer. Generally, products between $10 and $50 sell very well here. Just be sure to do the right market research before jumping on this bandwagon.
These are the types of people that can actually make decent money with affiliate marketing, or someone already making $10K per month and can put aside pretty good amount of money for SEO & Backlinking to build a powerful authority site that’s capable of generating serious free traffic or you have enough money to hire a team that not only manages paid ads for you but you got a system in place to create new ad accounts for you because you will run into issues of ad accounts getting banned.
This is amazing what you have said.But problem is that even if we have a lot of ideas and creative methods and tips with which other people can get benefit.We are unable to launch something free of cost.People are worried to spend a lot on internet and get nothing.People are interested in something where they can take a free start and start making money and then go further.Your words of wisdom are appreciated and we surely want to try it,what you are saying.
Affiliate Marketing is one of the profitable ways where you will need to sell third party products & services on internet to make commission in every sale. In this course you are going to learn the different techniques to selling products for companies and individuals on internet to make commissions. The step-by-step instructions will show you where you need to start to successfully make money promoting products as a affiliate. 

The focus of the presentation should be on the audience and the need you are trying to provide solutions for. Most events allow for some self-promotion in your presentation, but, even if they don’t people will look you up. All you need to have is a good looking website, LinkedIn profile and social media directing them towards the course you are selling.
As far as the return policy goes, I have never asked for a refund so I can’t give an honest assessment of that process. I did, however, cancel my “recurring” membership months ago without any problems at all. I went back in my emails to see if I had contacted John directly about it but it looks like I just went through Clickbank. I’d be interested to hear how it turns out now that you’ve gone directly to them. I’ve never had any issues with Clickbank.
If you offer freelance services or have a physical services business, then creating a blog is a must. On your blog, you can write about the services you offer and how they will benefit your clients. Importantly you can add a ‘Services’ page, outlining the services you provide, what they include, and any other important information potential clients may need. This is an effective way to promote your services, generate leads, and increase your revenue.

For example, in the past 2 weeks, I’ve received emails for TubeLoom, Paid Surveys, Kindle Mastery and in the members area he’s pushing MOBE. If you’re paying your money to learn affiliate marketing these can all be very distracting. You don’t need paid surveys and as much as writing kindle books can be a great side gig, if you’re learning affiliate marketing then you don’t need the distraction. Why Tubeloom if Internet Jetset has YouTube training? See my point?

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).


MCA is a program that’s similar to AAA. It offers a comprehensive suite of car-related services. The difference is that with the MCA make money online program you can get cash for referring people to the program. That means the Make Money Online system used by MCA is essentially an affiliate program that pays you when you get people to sign up for the service.

The third mistake I made was creating and promoting content during the launch that didn’t directly relate to the course. I published a YouTube video that was about creating a money mindset and sent it to my list during my launch. I shouldn’t have done this because it caused people to have a reason to go somewhere else and look at that content instead of at the course.


Another way to utilize your talent and business skills is to run corporate workshops online. Businesses are always looking for unique ways to help educate their workforce, and if you can package your talents into a day or half-day long session, you can sell that to companies all over the world to make money online. Start by building a portfolio and then reaching out on LinkedIn to influencers at relevant companies to see if they would be interested in you teaching their team.
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. 

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).
