So many people dream of writing a book, but never go through with it. Yet no matter what, I’m sure you have experience and value you could give through writing a book. By packaging your skills and knowledge into a downloadable eBook that helps people learn a skill, advance their careers, or start a businesses, you can change someone’s life and even make good money online.
No doubt John is a good copywriter and salesman, the guy has managed to get so many people into his courses and that has to be down to what he writes and says. I was looking forward to hearing some of his wisdom but unfortunately John once again does not teach in this module. Instead we get a video of an onstage presentation from Ronnie Sandlin who is a student of John’s and apparently much better at copywriting. Ronnie provides some great tips on copywriting in short easy to digest videos and it looks like they were recorded at a paid seminar.
Etsy: While Etsy's popularity has declined recently, it's still a great resource for selling handmade items online. No need for complex ecommerce sites or merchant accounts or any sort of automation. The company takes a commission of every sale and charges a small listing fee per item. But many still use Etsy as their primary source of income. The best part is that you can also sell digital products on here such as poster designs.
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.
“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.
You'll also need ecommerce software, fulfillment software, worry about warehousing, customer service and refunds. But that's not all. You'll also need traffic. Think search engine optimization, Facebook ads, and other social media campaigns. It is hard work, especially on your own. You could opt for Amazon's platform, which might be the easier route. But, then again, at the end of the day, this is a serious business, which could produce significant profits. So you're either all in or you're not.
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).
I used to be a corporate slave, and have become an internet millionaire in 4 short years. Check out this playlist to learn the 3 secrets that corporations dont want you to know, https://www.youtube.com/wat...... . This explains why working a job is not the right path. I used to wake up to an alarm clock, spent 2 hours in traffic each day, worked a job I hated, and had a boss who underpaid me. I now travel the world with my wife and child, have a beautiful house in Venice Beach California, wake up anytime I choose, and have a business which pays me every single day whether I work or not. I've made it my mission to teach others how they can do the same, by giving people access to me every single week, as well as a training program which shows people my step by step system. If you are ready to get started right away, and motivated to make a change in your life, you can signup for my training here, https://goo.gl/7tUaEq
Keep in mind though, you don’t need a website to do sponsored content since you can also get paid if you have a lot of social media followers. My wife has a pretty big Instagram following, and she gets all kinds of sponsorships. Not only does she get paid in cash, but we get a lot of free stuff, too. We’ve received free rugs, free lights, and free carpet cleaners. She only promotes things she loves though, so this strategy works really well for her.
I don’t like programs like MOBE and Digital Altitude, the way you have to buy into certain levels just to be able to earn the affiliate commission. And how do they justify the prices when there is more affordable training that can give you the same end result? I was a bit taken back too when I saw that Crestani was promoting it and so prominently in the members area of his training program.
For example, you have 5 courses with a price of $100 each. But, you have decided to offer them in a bundled offer for buy 5 pay 3 ($300). Most of your customers will think about spending $500 in one go, but offering them at a discounted price will make them think of the $200 they are saving, and you are getting them to buy more courses where initially they were going to get only one.
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.
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.
For my family. I live in New York City, but my grandchildren live in Rochester. Swagbucks helps pay for me to visit them every 3 weeks. I 'm also able to buy them gifts using Amazon gift cards, and help out with diapers and personal care items using CVS gift cards. I even use Target gift cards to help out with grocery shopping. Swagbucks has been a blessing and I can't live without it!
If you love to travel and find yourself randomly searching for airfare sales or browsing Lonely Planet, why not carve out a niche for yourself as a private travel agent? My friend, Mark Jackson did just that, making extra money online with his travel consulting side business. Start with word of mouth recommendations from friends who know they can count on you for the cheapest flights, and then move on and create a Facebook or LinkedIn group to invite people who want to stay on top of the latest deals. Eventually you could spin this into a full-time consultancy teaching people how to make their dream trip a reality.
