While most people have already answered with lots of beautiful answer. I would just like to tell I started blogging in 2nd year of my engineering thinking out of box to help my fellow engineering mates with quality course content available internationally as mit ocw, stanford, nptel. This is the first blog I created : Engineer Seva Nigam. Later I realised I could earn with my blog and then started my online earning journey.
It’s sometimes hard to comprehend just how much people love t-shirts. And with the right niche, marketing, and tools, you can create an online t-shirt business that makes you extra money online while you sleep. (Even Bloomberg and Forbes feature stories from entrepreneurs who've done just that.) Services like TeeSpring make it easier than ever to create a t-shirt drop-shipping business where they handle the sales, printing, and shipping, and you’re only responsible for design and marketing. For more tips, check out this simple guide to launching and marketing an online clothing store by my friends over at Selz.
Create a killer course experience: With your course validated and in the works, you need to figure out how people will take it. Most course creators choose to host their courses from their own websites. This way, they get all the value of bringing customers back to their site on a regular basis. I host my own courses from a subdomain on my own site so I can easily add more. The course experience is incredibly important as well. And after trying most of the solutions, I highly recommend Teachable—an online platform designed specifically for courses.
Making money consulting or as an online coach may be one of the first ways you consider to create income from your blog or it may take a while to build up to it. It’s one of the higher-paying online income sources but takes time to build the credibility and experience to be successful. Whichever path you decide to take, don’t count out the value of your experience and don’t neglect this great way to make money online.
First, there are several sites out there that act as a platform to connect people who want to buy this content with those who write it. Writers Domain, Crowd Content, Writer Access, and Constant Content are all professional sites with great reputations. Some require you to write a test article before being accepted, while others allow you to write from day one.
If you can design websites, there is plenty of work for you. Even if you are not very proficient in HTML, you can use softwares such as DreamWeaver or Kompozer to create websites. You can find clients on webmaster forums such as WarriorForum and DigitalPoint. Before venturing out, create a portfolio of website designs to show to your prospective clients.
Seminar presentations  –  When I was 32 years old I was volunteering as a Dale Carnegie teaching assistant.  I had been dramatically helped by the basic Human Relations course and wanted to help others experience the same benefits.  But the program had become quite expensive and I wondered if there were other similar options at a lower price.  With a little research I discover a 10-module program called Adventures in Attitudes.  I became a “facilitator,” purchased their workbooks, and scheduled my first workshop.  The local Chamber of Commerce promoted the workshop to their mailing list and allowed me to use their beautiful facility for the 10 weeks at no cost.  I paid $69 each for the participant workbooks, charged $469 for the program and had 23 people sign up.  I had no list, no platform, and no audience of my own.  As you can see, that first workshop netted me $9200 and I repeated that process many times before I ever created any materials of my own.  We now have the new 48 Days to the Work You Love Seminar available for you to replicate exactly what I did.  
Like reselling web hosting and domain names, you can sell almost anything by collaborating with manufacturers that offer dropshipping, which involves shipping the product to customers on  your behalf. In a dropshipping business, you collect the order on your website and then instruct the manufacturer to ship the product to your customer. The manufacturer gets paid its price and you keep the remainder.

Totally awesome Gael. Thank you so much for sharing. Yes, the per-engagement presell sequence strategy is the way to go in 2015 – pulling folk in with front end value content building that all important relationship factor and enticing them to opt in for more…, then offering them a solution at a lower price as it’s the first offer on TY page…and then promoting the opt in throughout your posts starting out with the problem, then turning it into finding the solution (as you have done above, lol!), plus Outbrain to LINK relative content, AND get affiliates on board + repeat with many blog posts and many offers, specially ads via FB and Pinterest Pin posts – man this is a powerful win-win. Makes SO much sense to me – am doing this right from NOW…Will be following your CB success and I’ll report back mine… R.
–>They can make you look bad. What if you plan a retreat, sign a contract, and only sell 2 of 20 spaces? What do you do? Cancel? Hold a retreat for 2 people after you promised a community of 20? There’s a lot of risk in running a retreat because you don’t know if you will fill it or not, especially if your business is new and you are just building your community. Remember to always have a plan in mind for the worst-case scenario if you are thinking about running a retreat BEFORE you sign any contracts or crack open that bottle of champagne :).
If you've developed valuable skill sets or picked up certifications within your industry over the years, offering your consulting services to local business owners can be a lucrative way to make money online. Whether you're an expert marketer, business strategist, or manufacturing aficionado, there's likely a local business owner who's willing to pay you to help them solve an issue with their company. Start with this 18-step checklist to becoming a local business consultant from Karyn Greenstreet and then use my guide to crafting an effective cold email to convince them to hire you.
With the rise of e-commerce, more and more customers are buying online than ever before. And the primary ways that they make their decision are on the price and the quality of the reviews. If someone is searching Amazon and one product has 5,000 5-star reviews and 50 1-star reviews while the competing product has only 100 5-star reviews and 80 1-star reviews, then the customer will likely buy the first product.
While you play, the app works in the background and transfers small sums from your checking account into a high-yield Blast savings account based on “triggers” you set — things like the number of opponents you defeat or enemy bases you destroy. You can earn extra cash by completing “missions” that allow you to test new games or take familiar games to the next level.

There are better business models out there but Clickbank can be an ok way to learn. The downside is most people who start on there get their ad accounts blocked as they don’t understand the terms of service and can’t advertise from them in the future. The web is becoming more transparent and people are wiser to what an affiliate ad is. The people who click them tend to be an older demographic 50+. If you are going to promote something, make a decision to only promote good products.
If you really wanted to make the list even more exhaustive, you could also discuss the various biological money-making methods (e.g., sperm donation, egg donation, etc.) and/or go into the more technical (e.g., hosting websites on one’s own server, building computers for others, etc.). Also, you could potentially explore those well-known money-making ventures, such as trading on the stock market, which are seemingly difficult to enter into by their apparent complexity by listing various online instructional tools which assist novices looking to get involved in them (e.g., Investopedia’s online simulator to prepare for buying/selling stocks). Sometimes those methods of making money which appear to be the most difficult are, in fact, relatively simple once you understand the underlying conceptual framework – many people just don’t realize this.
You must be at least 21 years old, have at least one year of licensed driving experience in the U.S. (three years if you’re under 23 years old), have a valid driver’s license and pass a background check. Also, your car must be a four-door, seat at least four passengers (excluding the driver), be registered in-state and be covered by in-state insurance.
What a great post mate.This is brilliant for newbies who are struggling to get a start and build up some confidence in their ability to become successful.Just getting those first few sign ups and a sale or two is very inspiring when you are starting out.You make some good points about giving value first and then gently selling your offer,too many marketers like to sell,sell,sell…. This drives me nuts,so I guess it happens to most potential customers.I hope to get more brilliant content from you in emails in the future to help me build my business.

How many hundreds (or thousands) of dollars of stuff sits in your garage? Maybe you have an attic or off-site locker. You might be keeping these things to use “someday.” But, let’s be honest. If you don’t use something in five years, you should sell it. You might think it’s worthless junk. But, as the old saying goes, one man’s trash is another man’s treasure.
When was the last time you went to a new restaurant without looking it up online beforehand? Or bought a product that didn’t have at least a few 5-star reviews? It seems like more and more our world is run on reviews. And you can make money online by writing them. Get started by creating accounts on sites like Vindale research, Software Judge, FameBit, CrowdTap, Influence Central, and Modern Mom. However, before you run off and start writing, be sure to check the small print on each of these sites. Writing reviews isn’t a huge source of guaranteed income and you want to make sure that it’s worth your time before you get going.
I have a proven and honest way to make extra money that’s almost as easy to do as going for a walk! For the past 35 years, I’ve been cleaning up litter outside retail, office and industrial properties on-foot with inexpensive hand tools. This is a great side hustle as the work needs to be completed before the businesses open for the day. I’ve written a book, Cleanlots, that details how to start and operate a parking lot litter removal business based from home. I provide free support.
There are a lot of people who are making money by showing advertisements and mentioning sponsors on YouTube videos they have created. However, it is not realistic to believe you can post a few videos and start making millions every year like YouTube celebrity Felix Kjellberg (PewDiePie). For the vast majority of people on YouTube, the amount of income generated is just enough for a supplemental income and not enough to support a family or business.

This is why you can make some great money online doing product reviews for companies. No, this doesn't mean doing fake reviews or lying. It's exactly the opposite. You can sign up for Facebook groups, go on sites like Upwork (where clients will post jobs for freelancers such as reviewers), or just reach out to companies directly to find out about these opportunities.
You don’t need to come up with a great idea to be a successful online entrepreneur. You can just ape another successful venture. However, you need to target a totally new market or segment. For instance, a popular Indian e-commerce store copied the Ebay formula to become a giant business in the country. There are so many Fiverr clones which have been started to target a niche audience or offer a service with a twist. A Fiverr clone allows people to buy and sell stuff in 3-hours. That’s all the creativity and innovation that you need.

Lander > Offer: This is a much better approach than the above. A lander or landing page is a web page that you create and that acts as a middleman between the offer and the visitor. This could be a review of the offer, a video, an article…etc. The visitor would land on it, consume it and then click a link and get redirected to the offer. Warren Wheeler’s case study on AMNinajs.com uses a variation of this funnel.
I start with topic for my website, then build my website and start writing content for it. Because I don’t sell my own products, I already know that I’ll be able to sell products from other people without an issue. What I do is called “affiliate marketing”. Some people do like to research potential products to sell beforehand, but for myself, I’m mostly concerned with finding a topic I think is interesting, with maybe some traffic numbers research, and monetization comes afterward!
Need more ideas on how to make money online? Another strategy is using webinars to market your product, service, or course. I’ve done webinars to promote my financial planning practice and to drum up interest in my online course for financial advisors. With a webinar, you’re basically offering a lot of tips and advice for free — usually in a live format. At the end though, you pitch your paid product or service with the goal of securing a few deals.
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!
