This has become a popular business model for online entrepreneurs over the past several years, and will probably just continue to grow in popularity. The best thing about selling online courses is that once you do the up-front work in creating the course and setting up your marketing strategy, you can get paid over and over again for work you do once.
He also has a lot more content on the technical details like uploading videos, optimizing thumbnails and everything else a beginner needs to get started. I can definitely see people earning their first $1 or more if they follow through the advice in the section. I also looked at some YouTube channels in the comments and there was definitely people who were doing okay.
Also, every time you sit down, you want to make sure you grow your business in some way. The most important thing in this business is to build and maintain forward momentum. You'll be amazed at how quickly your business grows with each month that passes if you work this way. In other words, don't be someone who isn't taking action because they want to understand everything first and things to be perfect; this isn't a perfect business and the people who are successful are the ones who just keep building more websites and more links and trying more things and learn as they go (I have too many students that spend too much time analyzing and not enough time doing; they are the ones that end up with a few small “perfect” websites while other students are going crazy with 3-4 new websites each month and have 50+ new ones by the end of each year – who do you think is going to make the real money??).
I haven’t been this enthusiastic about how fantastic a training is for a long time. And to be able to connect with other people who are as into building blogs and working from home – it’s like coming home. It’s really nice to read YOUR blog because you come across as a great guy who cares about people. You really know how to write – right down to the way you answer your comments. Every word says, “I want to help you” and that is so rare.
Here’s a good example of how lead sales can work in real life: My second website, Life Insurance by Jeff, brings in a ton of traffic from people who are searching the web to find answers to life insurance questions. While I used to have the website set up so I could sell these people life insurance myself, it was a lot of work to process all the different requests and clients. As a result, I started selling the leads I gathered instead.
Ans:- Again it depends on the business you are going to start. For example Course #1 – Blogging will take you anywhere from 1 month to 3 months to successfully make money from it. Similarly you can start making money on the first day using the Course #5, #6 and #7. However it should be noted that Blogging is more profitable in the long run as compared to the #5, #6 and #7 businesses. So it all depends on the type of business you are going to start.
We’ve all heard about the rise of MOOCs and online learning platforms. But is there a way for individual professionals to create their own online courses – and actually make money? You can’t simply expect to slap something up online and watch the dollars roll in, but with effort and strategy, online courses can become a revenue engine and powerful lead generator.
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.

It is possible to make money the same way in the examples he shows but it is by no means fast and not easy. I would hate to see someone try and rank a “Garcinia” website after watching John’s video and give up after the site doesn’t rank in the first 6 months. In the video one of John’s tips is for you to search for “SEO Best Practices in 2016” via Google which is laughable considering you are paying him to teach you.
Next, you’ll need the right tools. You can be as complicated or simple as you want depending on your comfort with audio equipment, but at the minimum you’ll want a microphone and software for recording your voice. Companies like Behringer, Blue, Focusrite, and others sell studio-quality plug-and-play podcast setups that can get you recording today.
Like talking to people and helping walk them through problems? You can bring in extra income as a contract customer support superstar for companies all over the world. Due to the 24/7 nature of online businesses, companies are looking for people in different time zones to help deal with issues that their users are having. Better yet, if you have experience in service or retail you’ll be perfectly suited. Check out indeed or the other remote job boards I listed earlier to find opportunities.
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.
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?
Creating a jobs board website can be another profitable venture. The ‘jobs’ field can be quite saturated, so it is important to find a niche that is still crying out for a jobs board website. Monetize this type of site by charging businesses to list their jobs on your site. Those searching for jobs could also be charged a fee to access the higher paying job adverts.
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.
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.
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.
The beautiful thing about a course is that you get about as much out of them as you put into them. If you want to do one course launch, make a few thousand bucks and walk away, you can do that. If you want to create multiple courses around a general topic and run an academy that you advertise through webinars, podcasts, blogs, and joint-ventures and build a lifestyle business from your home, you can do that too!
There are numerous printing companies that will print your designs onto not just T-shirts, but also hoodies, hats, posters, cushions, bags, and phone cases, to name a few items. These businesses also offer fulfillment services. This means that you promote the merchandise on your own site and once you sell a product the printing company will not only print your design but also send the item directly to the buyer. So all you have to do is concentrate on the marketing and selling of your products, and the fulfillment company will take care of the rest.
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.
A much better approach is to create a separate, creative and engaging subject line for each newsletter you send. Questions and personalized subject lines for example, can work well, and most email clients will allow you to add the name or company of the recipient in the subject so that it is addressed directly to each one. Controversial, one-sided, or subject lines that take you directly down to the “pain point” of the reader such as “10 Ways to Make Your Cat Obedient” are the best. Now, wouldn’t you open that?
20. Etsy – If you like to create arts and crafts, you can sell them on Etsy.It’s completely free to open an Etsy store. You simply sign up, post pictures of your creations and starting selling. You can choose your payment option, but PayPal is generally the easiest. Etsy makes it easy to sell and keep track of your inventory. There is a small listing fee and they take 3.5% of every sale you make.
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.
When working on your sales page you need to take certain factors into consideration so as to make sure that no visitor will turn their back on your services, but they would rather stick to it and find out more about what your school has to offer. What you are after is getting their attention through the use of context that has a certain clarity and balance.
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.
For example if a student purchases your course using an Instructor Coupon code, either from promotions to your own audience (e.g., your email list or YouTube subscribers) you can make 97% revenue share. Alternatively if the course is sold via an Affiliate, the split is 50% affiliate, 25% Instructor and 25% Udemy. If the sale comes directly via the Udemy website (not an affiliate or an instructor promotion) the split is 50% Udemy, 50% Instructor.
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).
Signing up with Google AdSense will enable you to make money from advertising on your blog. Google AdSense will place relevant ads around your site, and if your site visitors click on these ads, you will earn a fee. Although each click only amounts to small change, if your blog has high levels of traffic and lots of page views this will quickly amount to a reasonable sum.
In the training he mentions that the Facebook page owners are sending traffic from the pages to their own websites. It actually looks like in some cases the smaller Facebook pages are just part of the SEO strategy for those websites and not set up solely too generate traffic. I know that when I create a new affiliate site, I set up a bunch of social profiles but that’s just for Google’s algorithm and one of the first steps for any decent affiliate SEO too take. John actually spends a lot of time covering the websites that the Facebook pages link to rather than the pages themselves which I thought was disappointing seeing as I wanted to learn more about Facebook.
Creating space for banner ads on your website is another way to generate a revenue from adverts. However, for this type of advertising, you will need to contact businesses directly and ask them if they would like to advertise on your website. The upside is that you can charge a set amount, or even a recurring monthly fee, to business to promote their services on your site. Using a WordPress plugin like AdSanity is an effective way to manage this type of advertising.
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.).
No matter what method you choose to make money online, understand that you might be able to make some money fast, but for the sizable returns, you'll need significant sweat equity. However, a year from now, you'll be happy you started today. Remember, time is far more valuable than money. Focus on creating passive income streams that will free up your time so that you can quit the rat race and focus on the things that matter.
For those with a large Twitter following, you can make money from your Tweets alone with Sponsored Tweets. You could be paid for sharing a business’s information, recommending restaurants or hotels, or tweeting pictures of you using or wearing products. As with all sponsored posts on social media, businesses will only be prepared to pay you to Tweet if you have a large following that you can influence. So work hard on building up a loyal fan base.
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.
While Etsy is fantastic for handmade goods that you’ve already created, if you’ve got killer designs that would look good on phone cases, t-shirts, or even wall hangings, pillows, and duvets, you can sell them on Society6 without paying anything to start. Society6 lets artists upload their designs and create their own shops where they choose what products their designs can be used on. That means one design can be used to make a whole range of awesome products that are printed and shipped on demand whenever someone buys from you. With top creators making thousands every month just from selling their designs.
If you have a good idea for an app, and the skills to create it, then producing your own premium app can be profitable. However, with so many free apps available, it may be hard to convince people to pay. If you want to go down the premium app route, consider having a basic free version to encourage people to download the app in the first place. You can then provide the option of upgrading to a premium plan once users realize how useful the app is.
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.
To get started with Amazon affiliate marketing you will need to sign up with Amazon Affiliates. Then subtly market products on your site that are relevant to your niche and will be of interest to your audience. Make sure you only endorse high-quality products. If your visitors make a purchase on your recommendation but are not impressed with the item, you could quickly lose followers.
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.
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.

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.
Thanks for getting in touch. I understand why you’re a little hesitant in joining the premium membership, after all there are a lot of shady online schemes that never get results. All I can say is that I’ve personally gotten real results from this and I love the transparency – they give you a free membership option so you can see exactly what Wealthy Affiliate is all about before making your decision.
