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.
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.

Not my experience, this site most be one of Johns students, the info is over priced, and the pyramidal scheme with his other businesses is not nice, you feel you are trained to be one of his bots in the upper chains, second all the time they are brainwashing you with their emotional motivational stuff, third a very uncool no return policy, he says he will give you the money back if you dont like it, guess what he wont, even in his website they say we dont give money back just in extreme cases, whats that?
Inside a course called Wealthy Affiliate there is a public blog for students enrolled and 5 times now when doing competitor research for my other niche sites I have been able to see that their public blogs link them to various extremely profitable websites. It’s not a get rich quick scheme but I would say that it is a solid choice for beginners with a vibrant active community and I would be happy to recommend it to friends & family.
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.
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.

It’s funny – most businesses take 3 to 5 years to even see the first penny in profit, but when people want to make money online, they want it to come immediately. As I mentioned before, maybe you’ll be one of the lucky few who are able to make money online fast, but for most people, you’ll need to try things out and fail a bunch of times before you find success. When it comes to affiliate marketing specifically, I usually tell people it will take 6 to 12 months of solid work before they can expect to see much of anything in return.


If you have nothing of value to sell from home then retail arbitrage might be a better option for you. Many people partake in arbitrage to earn a little extra money, and for some, it has even become their full-time job. Retail arbitrage is the buying of goods at a low price and then selling them on a different platform at a higher price. Sales in shops provide ideal opportunities to pick up products for next to nothing. These can then be sold on eBay or Amazon for higher amounts, making you a nice profit.
Starting a podcast, like making a YouTube channel or blog, comes down to telling interesting stories and building an engaged audience. I’m probably sounding like a broken record by now, but you need a niche that you’re interested in and there’s already a demand for. Come up with a list of topics you’d like to talk about and then search iTunes charts, Google Trends and other podcast research sites like cast.market to see what’s currently out there and popular.
I am really longing to start an online business but most often I am discouraged by the whole Paypal thing. Everybody seems to be using Paypal. However, I lived in a country where Paypal payment is not authorized. Can one actually strive with affiliate marketing without Paypal? I do freelance translation and my client accepted to pay to me through other avenues like Payoneer just because I am good at what I do and they couldn’t afford to let me go.
If you have a knack for organization, you can make money online as a virtual assistant helping people to keep their days in order. A virtual assistant will do everyinthing from bookkeeping to research, database entry, booking travel, and managing email. It can also be an awesome way to rub shoulders with some very important people, build up your professional network, and of course grow another stream of income. You can find great gigs on UpWork, Fiverr, Indeed, and Remote.co.
But his secret sauce is canning and cloning himself: he screen-records the ad campaigns he creates step-by-step (his present focus is on Facebook advertising) on his laptop and sends it to his team so they can duplicate his results. That’s been a huge piece to Crestani’s success. “Every million-dollar ad campaign I launch, I record myself obsessively on my computer in the creation process. I pass the modules along to my team and make sure they can do a job just as good as I can.”
2. InboxDollars – InboxDollars is similar to Swagbucks, since you’re going to be taking surveys, shopping, etc., so if you want to maximize your return, sign up with both websites. They also offer a search engine that pays you (like Swagbucks) and you get $5 just for signing up.  I won’t continue to list survey sites one after another down the list, but if you want to get paid to take surveys, also check out GlobalTestMarket, E-Poll Surveys and Survey Club.
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.
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.
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.

Start by taking other courses you’re interested in: Not only is this important competitor and opportunity analysis, but it also gives you an idea of how a course could or should look and feel. What’s the pacing like? Is it via email, video, in-person chats? Once you understand how you want your course to look, it’s time to decide what it should include. Those same courses are a great starting place. How can you make your course better or more interesting? Do you have experience others don’t?

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.
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.
18. CraigsList – Some things don’t ship very well. Other things may make you feel uncomfortable to sell to someone across the country. Anytime you’re selling a large item or something you just don’t want to ship, Craigslist is a great place to go. It’s simple to list your item (again, take good pictures!). If you don’t like the idea of putting your phone number out there, the interested individual can send you a message to your inbox without even getting your email address.
Wow. I have followed your blogging from the start Matthew, you have done some epic posts over this time but this one is just immense. It is the most comprehensive list I have seen although the term ‘list’ does not do it justice. I am still checking out some of the resources you added and will probably still be going through them at Christmas . Great job mate.
I absolutely LOVE your blog. I found it while I was researching to write something on my own blog! I’ve only been with Wealthy Affiliate a little over a month – but there is a long story there. I found WA in 2013 and never did anything with it. I returned mid-March 2018 and I have been learning so much and improving the blogs I have that were struggling as well as building a brand new blog with help from the Wealthy Affiliate courses.
My name is Jamie Spencer and I have spent the past 5 years building money making blogs. After growing tired of the 9-5, commuting and never seeing my family I decided that I wanted to make some changes and launched my first blog. Since then I have launched lots of successful niche blogs and after selling my survivalist blog I decided to teach other people how to do the same.

CashCrate sends out literally thousands of payments a month to users just like you who spend time completing surveys and offers on CashCrate.com. How do they do it? Well, they do surveys and offers regularly. It really adds up! Your initial goal should be to meet minimum payout, which is $20.00. Making $20.00 in free cash is actually quite easy considering there are hundreds of surveys and offers available, but here are a few tips to get you to your goal faster:
I don’t point all of this out to burst anyone’s bubble, but rather because I have been an entrepreneur for long enough now (more than two decades) that I have learned that it pays to be a realist. The heart of any good business strategy is truly understanding and correctly diagnosing your situation, and the above facts are critical for anyone hoping to succeed at selling online courses.

Thank you, Jay, for the thorough review of Internet Jetset. I’ve just recently discovered online affiliate marketing and joined WA. I agree with you that it’s always good to learn from more than one perspective but after reading your review, I don’t think I will be going to Internet Jestset for that perspective. Personally I don’t agree with training programs, or other websites for that matter, that lure you in with one price then start nickel-and-diming you just to continue. That just seems wrong to me and I question the integrity of someone who does that to customers. I certainly appreciate your invite & your willingness to spend your own money to test it out.
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.
