If you're serious about making money online, start a blog. Blogging is one of the easiest and most sustainable income sources. As long as the blog is setup the right way, in the right niche, with the right content targeted at the right audience, and the offer is complementary to the content, you could make a tremendous amount of passive income from a blog.
A niche affiliate site often presents like an eCommerce store. To get started with an affiliate site, choose your niche then display products with pictures, descriptions, and prices, just as you would on an online store. However, when visitors click the ‘buy’ button, they will be taken directly to Amazon, to make the purchase. You then make an affiliate fee for sending the traffic to Amazon but have none of the packaging hassle, or initial financial output creating or buying the products.
And while these aren’t mistakes, I had a lot go wrong during the process. Most notably, I spilled hot water on my laptop and had to go get a new one. Within hours I was up and running and back to business. However, the newer computers have such high resolution screens that when I started creating new presentations, they looked completely different than the old ones because the color was different. So, I rerecorded the entire first half of the course. This pushed out my launch a week (but I was still one week early compared to my initial launch plan, which was good).
The second problem was the final night of the launch, I had a problem with payments going through. It’s still unclear why. But this is the worst time to have payment problems. I still have many payments outstanding that show $0 earnings, which is why I titled this post $5k and didn’t give the exact number at first – I didn’t know the total until the following day! I even had 2-3 people have to wait to buy until the day after the launch. Really terrible timing!
To be successful with any of these training courses and careers — you need to put in a lot of hard work! Success is not going to happen overnight and to be blunt, it's not always going to be easy. 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. 

Verdict: Its a good course that is definitely legitimate and you can make money if you follow the strategies being taught by Crestani. However, if you’re not careful, you can end up spending a lot of money or get distracted by other offers available to you as a student that in my opinion aren’t necessary for your success. I’d rate this at about 70/100.
If you live in an area where Uber or Lyft operate, why not become a driver? If you're looking to make some short-term cash, you can definitely rake it in by working for one of these popular car-hire apps. As long as your vehicle fits within the specifications of their program, and you have a clean license, you could do this on the side, especially if you're in a crunch for cash.
 *UPDATE: The registration for the free training is closing soon, but we managed to twist John’s arm and get a special link backdoor link where you can still register. However, there are no guarantees it will still work when you are reading this! Hurry, before you miss your chance and doors close and you read the success stories after a few months, thinking: “I knew I should have joined”! 
Everyone’s had a friend ask to borrow money before. The internet makes it possible to turn your peer-to-peer lending into easy online money. Peer-to-Peer (or P2P) lending is a great way to generate interest on the cash you have on hand. The interest you earn will be really high, even more than an online savings account! That makes this one of the most legit ways to make money online.

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. 

I want to point out that this post talks about the technicalities, strategies, tools, and recommendations I have for creating an online course and making money blogging. I want to be super duper clear that all of this only works if you’re providing enormous value in the content of your course. I knew that my course on mindset, productivity, time management, goal setting, and habits would sell because I was confident in my ability to deliver. Without this there is no course.
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. 

The point of today’s exercise is simply for you to get your feet wet and to get a website online that you can play and experiment with. Don’t worry too much about what this first website is going to be about; just get something online. After you complete this first project and feel comfortable with the process of putting together a professional looking website, then you can start developing your passive income website portfolio.
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.
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.
Now this would usually be considered a risky or "blackhat" link building method that could get your websites penalized by Google. However, we aren't building the links directly to your main "money websites," we are building the links to your support layer of websites! This includes article directories, web 2.0 properties, and mini blogs that you've already created (taught in the prior lessons).
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.
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!

If you have been creating content, you can look up for some digital material, from informative leaflets to Word documents with valuable information that you can use. For example, do you write a blog? Have you recorded your last workshop, training or webinar? Reusing old content is a good starting idea, especially if this content hasn’t been yet seen by many eyes.


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.


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.
Creating your own food blog, will not only be fun but done well it should also be profitable. Link your site to affiliate cooking products, sell your food photos, create and sell your own physical cookbook, or launch a cooking app. Equally, you could turn your cooking blog into a membership site. You would then share all your content, including recipes, how to videos, food photographs, and much more, with only your paid up members.
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.
One of the biggest concerns I hear about teaching online courses is the fact that people can learn practically anything for free by searching online. While this is probably true, the fact is that many people will buy a course that clearly teaches exactly what the person is looking for. Rather than spending hours upon hours searching YouTube for tutorials on how to learn x y or z, people find value in a structured online course that also has an instructor there, available for any questions.
As described, Internet Jetset is a faster way of making money online. According to John Crestani, the author of the program, you just require access to Amazon.com, a Facebook account and a Paypal account to start earning money. According to John Crestani, you can make around $3000 in a day. To start making money, you just need to download the entire program and follow the steps. Each day, you have to be on your computer for at least one hour.
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".
There are loads of resources for making money online as an affiliate. You could source products from ClickBank, Commission Junction, Rakuten Marketing, Share-a-Sale, Impact Radius and many others. Plus, many of the larger companies have their own affiliate programs as well. Do your due diligence and find the right company with a relevant product or service to your audience that you can sell as an affiliate.
Ok I have a question. Btw, I am brand new to the online business arena. I have two ideas for online courses. I cannot find any courses that are currently being sold online that offers the same content. However there are a lot of “how to” articles available on websites like Forbes and Entrepreneuer that cover the same content. They do not have much depth and they are quite vague. Since articles are being written on the subject matter does that mean there is enough demand?
Creating and selling courses could be more than just an online business you started one or two years ago. In fact, years from now, if you are committed to it and truly believe that you can make a strong impact through teaching your favorite subject, you could be the next Chris Anderson – the curator of TED (Technology, Education, Design) conferences, in the eyes of future generations!

A final option is a service such as Teachable or Ruzuku, both of which offer some of the benefits of self-hosted with the ease and speed of Udemy. These options have easy creation and upload like the course service marketplaces, but you can add your own domain, and customize your school like in self-hosted options. Some offer their resources for free, with more bells and whistles with paid plans. Most integrate with PayPal, or you can use their payment service.

While some might think that starting a blog is an arduous effort, when you understand the precise steps you need to take, it becomes far easier. It all starts in the decision of choosing a profitable niche and picking the right domain name. From there, you need to build your offers. You can easily sell things like mini-email courses, trainings and ebooks.
If you live in an area where Uber or Lyft operate, why not become a driver? If you're looking to make some short-term cash, you can definitely rake it in by working for one of these popular car-hire apps. As long as your vehicle fits within the specifications of their program, and you have a clean license, you could do this on the side, especially if you're in a crunch for cash.
There are different ways to market an ebook. One of the most common is through Amazon’s Kindle program. They can help you with all the steps to both publish and market your ebook through their incredibly popular platform. There are some specialized sets of writing software that will help with not only writing your ebook, but also formatting it correctly for the Amazon market as well Barnes & Noble and iTunes

Be professional. When you submit a résumé, don’t type it in ALL CAPS and please don’t avoid the caps lock like the plague. Know how to use it without looking incompetent. Write in complete sentences with proper grammar. Of course, there will be exceptions, but even with the exceptions, you must keep it professional. You’re building their view of you.


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. :)
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.
