–>It’s something you might do anyway! If you love the coach or product, there’s a good chance you would recommend it or share it – so why not also get paid? It’s a win-win. And to be clear, I think you should only partner with someone who you really like, who has a product or service you 100% believe in (i.e., you’d recommend it even if you weren’t getting paid).
There are quite literally hundreds of clever ways to make money online. From taking online surveys, to renting or selling your old clothes, flipping your iPhone to someone in a different country, and even buying low-cost products locally, just to resell them for a higher price on Amazon. There’s truly no shortage of unique ways to make money online.
–>It takes massively more effort to market and sell. Private coaching practices can be built on referral and word of mouth. Landing one high-end private coaching client can pay for your all of your monthly expenses, which can be a giant relief, especially in the beginning! But most group coaching can’t come at the same premium price, so you need more people to enroll in your programs to make up the difference in price. That means a LOT more marketing and selling has to happen to fill your programs. That takes time and effort, and a whole separate skill set that you have to learn (or hire).
For example, right now as you're reading this, there are hundreds of other people that are on my blog reading my content. There's hundreds of people right now watching my videos on YouTube, too. These people are receiving value from me and building a relationship with me, without me having to actively do anything. At the same time, they're visiting my blog and they're applying to work with me as part of my coaching program.
If you have an e-book or online course that you'd like to promote, ClickBank makes that easy. Once you sign up as a vendor you can list your product with them and set the commission percentage you are willing to pay to anyone who chooses to market and promote your product for you. Once your product is listed, other ClickBank users will start promoting it on their own websites. This will drive traffic to the sales page on your website and hopefully result in sales.
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.
Now, I know what you’re thinking. Most of the software and apps you use on a regular basis are made by massive companies or established development studios. Well, yes. But many successful apps, particularly those in the Apple and Google stores, are created and marketed by individuals and small businesses. In fact, independent developers made $20 billion in the App Store in 2016 alone.
Become the expert. The simple answer of how to get personal training clients is to make sure everybody knows that you’re a personal trainer. Once you set up your business, simply start posting workout tips on your Facebook, send an email to everybody you have ever met, and ask your parents to message their family and friends. Be sure to communicate the benefits of online training to your clients when reaching out to entice them. Here’s a list of a few of the benefits of online personal training to the client:
Not only will this multiply the money you’re bringing in in a serious way, but it protects you against any sudden changes in the market or in your business. Remember that old saying about putting all your eggs in one basket? A few hours a week committed to just one or two of the following opportunities will put you in a much stronger position to be financially safe and independent.
Designing a T-shirt can be a fun and rewarding way to make some money on the Internet. Below are a few of the services that allow you to design and make T-shirts that can be sold to anyone on the Internet. For each T-shirt sold with your designs, you make a percentage of the income. The sites Spreadshirt and Cafepress are two good examples of these sites.
2. Physical products/E-Commerce: I call this marketing "stuff" - everything from supplements to electronics, from entertainment packages to credit cards...obviously a VERY wide spectrum here. Typically you start with a niche category (kitchen supplies, health supplements, yoga products, etc...) and then specialize in sub-niche within those categories...again ideally you work toward either manufacturing your own goods or at least sourcing from overseas versus simply being an affiliate - but starting as an affiliate is a good way to test a given market
Moreover, one has the freedom of dressing and can work in casual clad, not necessarily suiting up. For the parents who have to split between home chores like childcare responsibilities, are able to create balance between work and home. One does not have to commute thus saving on gas and also commuting time. Convenience for example in sales where one is closer to clients than when at work. Finally, there is access to a wider pool of applicants for example the disabled who prefer to work from home.
I remember reading this book, Talent is Overrated, that was debunking the idea of innate genius. There’s one moment in the book that talks about Mozart, someone who is widely considered to have been a young music prodigy. But his dad was a music teacher. That was a huge part of his backstory. He wasn’t born a genius — his dad taught him (we would say coached him).
If you’re willing to take on some risk and have the heart of a true hustler, you can make extra money online doing commission-only sales for startups and other businesses. While you won’t be getting a regular salary, with the right sales strategies and skills as an inside sales rep, you can make decent money for each sale you bring in. And because you’ll most likely be working with startups, if you can negotiate a little equity you could profit big time if you're pitching a solid product and the startup succeeds.
All it takes is a little know-how. Why make the same mistakes as everybody else? Follow a proven template. I’ll show you how. Below is a form for you to enter your email. It’s free and there’s no commitment. Once you put your email in and click “Get the Advantage” I’ll send you more information about online training AND invite you to our free Facebook support group (10,000+ strong). That, and you’ll be automatically put on the waiting list for the Online Trainer Academy so that the next time it’s available you will save $200 if you choose to enroll to become a certified online personal trainer.
We’ll go into more details regarding each step but let me give you a quick overview of each. The product/offer is the ClickBank product you’ll be promoting. This might seem like it’s simple enough but screwing up this step could potentially hinder you from earning a single cent because the other steps are built on top of it. Product research has its own separate section below.
You have knowledge. You have experience. You want to get into the online coaching/teaching business, because you know that you can help someone reach the goals you’ve reached yourself. You don’t need to be a leading expert in the field. You definitely don’t need to be a “guru.” You’ve been a little farther down a certain road than most, and that’s worth money. So how do you get started?
Then once you’ve got your domain name and hosting sorted out, it’s time to pick a CMS, or Content Management System, that will let you update pages, build your blog and integrate with all the other services you need. It’s hard to go wrong with WordPress—the CMS powering close to a quarter of the internet. Keep in mind that eventually as you start growing traffic to your blog, you'll be wise to invest in a managed WordPress hosting plan, where all of the settings are custom-tailored and optimized to work particularly well with WordPress-powered websites.
–>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 will say that while coaching and consulting isn't passive by any means, it is one of the most rewarding and fulfilling things that I do. While creating passive income streams is fun and the best use of your time, sometimes you lose that human connection and relationship with people. I've found it to be very pleasurable and rewarding to work with someone on a personal level and help them achieve their goals. You don't get that same level of joy and fulfillment through a video blog or a course, as you're sometimes disconnected from people.
This is a great article! I honestly had never even heard of some of these money-making methods (e.g., selling plasma, flipping domains, renting your car for ad space, etc.). While I would presume that there exist various risks associated with, say, plasma donation (which would explain why it is so little-known), many of the other methods seem relatively simple and, potentially, very lucrative. It’s kind of interesting that they’re not as well-known as some of the other methods listed despite their not having any apparent drawbacks (such as the ad space on one’s car). I guess the old saying that there is a job out there for everyone may, to some extent, actually be true.
Acquire skills. If you have no experience or are looking to start a new career from home, some of the best fields to consider are IT, accounting, and marketing. These are somewhat technical fields, so you’ll need formal training. The good news is that you can earn an affordable associate’s degree in each field at your local community college or through online programs.
Working online could actually earn you more if you play your cards well. For example, if you take on two jobs a day, you will earn less than a person who does five jobs a day. Your earnings fully depend on how much expertise you have and how willing you are to work. This means that you get value for your time and effort as opposed to working in an office for a fixed salary at the end of the month.
The truth is, in order to be successful at anything you have to be COMMITTED. Most people simply aren't committed enough to be successful and therefor they never will. They aren't willing to do whatever it takes. They “want” success, but aren't “committed” to it. They basically only way to be successful if it's convenient and falls in their lap. Most aren't willing to invest money or commit themselves fully and I'm not willing to work with those people, as it's often a waste of time.
Online auction sites, such as Amazon seller, eBay, uBid, and Craigslist, are another great way to make income on the Internet. Finding and selling things around your house or visiting your local pawn shops and buying small items to resell on auction sites can be a way to make money. If you are not sure what to sell or what is in demand, do a search on eBay or other auction sites and sort by highest selling item. It can be surprising what people are selling and how much people are willing to pay for those items.
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.
I was wondering if anyone here could direct me towards websites that have individuals who are well informed on the subject of making money online and the various ways to do it. I recently came across websites called kasottyblog.com and thatjoblessguy.com and was wondering if there are more sites like this on the internet like this where the website owners give out methods of how to make money online that they actually show you. If these websites can help someone your welcome but I am looking for more sites like this as I was searching "make money online mentoring" when finding these sites on google after hours of searching. Can someone please refer me to more sites where individuals can be mentored in the world of making money online. Thank you
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.
I began with the few things identified here but in the time since have added my own 48 Days content through traditional books, ebooks. online courses, membership sites, and a Mastermind. Knowing I had a core message to share (Release dreams into purposeful, and profitable work…in 48 days) has allowed me to add multiple ways for people to experience that message. And I’m confident you can do the same.
