As you start regularly putting out content, you’ll hopefully start to build a bit of an audience. But to start seeing real money from YouTube you need to market your videos elsewhere. Share your channel on Twitter and Facebook. Distribute videos anywhere else you can think of. Also, interact with comments and build a community around the videos you’re making so people will share it with their friends.
Write. Quality writing is always in demand. If you are a good writer and have experience blogging, copywriting, or editing, you could become a freelance writer. Assemble a portfolio of your writing (or update the one you have) and start looking for work. A great place to start is within your existing networks. You could also look for opportunities to write newsletters, blogs, or advertisements for local clients.
25. Products – You can create your own product, such as an ebook or computer software. You would then use your blog as a promotion tool to get people to buy your product. As long as you create a legitimate product with a whole lot of value, you should be able to get some buyers, but like everything else with a blog, you’ll need the traffic to get the sells.
Robert said he did an average of 4-6 of these gigs per year for a while depending on his schedule and the work involved. The best part is, he charged a flat rate that usually worked out to around $100 per hour. And remember, this was pay he was earning to advise people on the best ways to use social media tools like Facebook and Pinterest to grow their brands.
–>They require a LONG lead time. If you want to sell a retreat and have a hope of filling it, you’ll need to start selling it months in advance and allow for at least two big sales pushes, one at the beginning of your sales cycle, and one near the end. You’ve seen October conferences that start selling tickets in March, right? This is why. And those months of selling can be exhausting. Some people can commit early, but some can’t till the last minute, you’ll have to account for both. While you are doing that, it takes energy from the rest of your business.
I typically trash Clickbank as a low-quality trash bin for discount digital products worth very little money, and even less of your time. But the website is still alive and well, and as we see with products like Google Sniper 2.0 and Freedom Formula 8, people are still touting it as a great place to find things to promote for your online business. I decided to investigate further to see if it's actually possible to make honest money on Clickbank.
My 10-year-old son brought home a book from our park’s free library box. It was a biology textbook – teachers edition. He said it looked interesting and hey, it was free (having no idea you could sell it). I scanned it in my Amazon seller app and realized it was worth around $150. He was so excited. We listed it for sale for $130 and it sold! Going to tell him, he just made $130!
It’s why our customers, who are just normal people, have made upwards of six figures in just a month while launching their courses. It’s why the best content marketers (like Seth Godin, Marie Forleo, Noah Kagan) are selling courses. It’s why there was $2.51 billion invested in educational-technology companies during the first half of 2015 (according to InsideHigherEd).
The number two topic is diet. The great thing about our diet coaches is that they are all specialized around very specific diets. So if you want to go Paleo, we have Paleo coaches. If you want to go Slow-Carb, then we have Slow-Carb coaches. It always bothered me that so many diet coaches in the world were offering generic nutrition advice when most of us have really specific diets in mind.
–>The biggest con of private coaching is that it isn’t scaleable. What that means is that you are always trading time for money, and you only have so much time to give as a coach. Sure, you can keep raising your rates to make your time more profitable, but eventually you will hit an upper limit on what you can charge, which means you will be limited on how much you can grow your business. For some people, this is 100% okay! You can make plenty of money coaching people one-on-one. For others, you may want more flexibility and room for growth. The great news? It’s 100% up to you.
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.
Suppose you love fashion or maybe you’re all about the latest and greatest kitchen gadgets. These are both great opportunities for affiliate marketing. However, if your current blog, website or social platform (if you have any of these) might not be the best fit. Try your hand at a pay-per click campaign, all you need is an account, a landing page and a small budget to get started!
