There’s nothing wrong with working for a gym. In fact, I think most trainers should at least start working in one. But I think every skilled trainer should look into starting a personal training business online. If you do it right, all of the annoying problems I outlined earlier (1-hour sessions, time management, a huge expense, and the inability to scale your efforts) can all be solved. That, and you can earn more money as an online personal trainer than you can ever make in a gym. Here’s how to become an online personal trainer and launch a thriving business the right way:
22. Advertising – This is definitely the most old-school way of earning money with a blog. It’s also starting to become the least common way. You can sell advertising spots directly on your site or you can sign up with a company like Google AdSense or Media.net. Either way, you won’t see a whole lot of money from ads until your views are well into the thousands each day.
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.
If you'd like to make money with ClickBank, you're not alone. ClickBank facilitates around 30,000 digital sales each day and has over six million registered users who create and promote digital products. There are two main ways to make money using ClickBank: one is to create your own product and list it, and the other is to skip the product creation step and list other people's products while taking a commission from each sale. ClickBank commission rates range from 5%–75% depending on the product being promoted.
Sorry to hear you had such a bad experience with Clickbank. Refunded 5 weeks later? That’s pretty extreme! I could not find any info on CB on whether gravity takes into account refund rates, but from other blogs, I read that NO, it doesn’t take it into account. The Earned/Sale category however does take this into account, which is why the average $ earned per sale will sometimes be different from the actual commission you make.
27. Sponsored/paid posts – Many blogs publish sponsored and paid posts. Sponsored posts are basically just posts about a specific brand, product or service. A company will pay you to publish an article about it. It’s similar with other paid posts as well. Your basically selling the spot for the article on your site. If you decide to take this route, you’ll want to build your traffic before you will get many offers.

The drawback is that it’s slow at first, it could take 2-3+ months to see your first sale if that is your main traffic source. It’s also tedious in the sense that it requires a lot of effort link building, especially if you’re trying to rank for highly competitive keywords.

As an affiliate, all you have to do is sign up for a ClickBank affiliate account and then start browsing their marketplace which lists all the available products from their partner vendors. Once you find a good product (we’ll get into that in a moment), ClickBank will give you a unique “affiliate link” that points to the vendor’s sales page. All you have to do then is make people buy through that link. You earn a commission for any sale made through your affiliate links.
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.
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.
If you need to “make money quickly” then I don’t recommend starting any kind of business. Making money in business rarely happens fast, especially for newbies. Also, it would be a shot in the dark to look for someone who will train you to run your business and only accept a “fee” after you start earning money. They’d rather just build the business themselves!

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.
I've learned so much with this course! KC Tan is an excellent instructor. He covers all the bases. Also, his facebook group and email list have both been a great value for me. I've made money using this method, and I'm hoping to start making even more by learning list building details in another of his courses that I just started. So glad I came across his courses.

Here’s a good example of how lead sales can work in real life: My second website, Life Insurance by Jeff, brings in a ton of traffic from people who are searching the web to find answers to life insurance questions. While I used to have the website set up so I could sell these people life insurance myself, it was a lot of work to process all the different requests and clients. As a result, I started selling the leads I gathered instead.
Offering a limited amount of face-to-face consulting for local clients can allow you to boost your consulting package rates as well. It’s also going to be easier to rank for your best keywords on your blog if you are including local words like your city or state name. Wrapping your blog content around these local keywords will put you ahead of other consultants that don’t have the same focus.

I've also personally hired and worked with so many coaches in my own life and received so much value from them.  I know I wouldn't have the success that I enjoy today if I tried to do things on my own and didn't make those investments in my self.  I continue to find coaches and mentors that I can learn from, in all areas of my life.  It's the fastest and easiest way to get to where you want to go.  Just find someone that's done it and do exactly what they say.  It's pretty simple.


I will continue to try warriorforum, youtube and other IM forums. never heard of skillshare so thanks. And when it comes to facebook how do you get past those annoying groups that simply spam away everyday. When searching for answers on facebook graph all day all I got was this. Is there an advanced type of search available for facebook somewhere like a software that dives deep into the website to get better search results for things like this? Is there a place that database quality groups to join? And what could I possibly do about the "closed group" situation going on everywhere?
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.

To test these websites, you’ll be asked to visit the site in question and record your reactions and thoughts as you go through it.

Now next, you’ll want to pick a WordPress theme from somewhere like ThemeForest, Elegant Themes or OptimizePress. This is the barebones design of your site, which you can then customize with your own branding, copy, and images. That being said, you don’t want to cheap out. It costs less than $100 to buy a theme that will make your website look professional (and you can upgrade to a completely custom design once you get the business going).
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.
–->It’s a place for you to send clients you might not want to work with. If you are private coaching you may run across people who aren’t a good fit for your coaching services or personality, so having a referral partner on hand to send them to is a wonderful win. They get a great coach, you don’t work with someone who isn’t a fit, the other coach gets a new client and you get paid for your trouble. Everyone wins!
Sorry about the loss of your office Denise but sounds like you’re on the right path to a much bigger business through online consulting. After registering your domain and getting hosting, pick a theme for your blog. There are quite a few free ones you can use to get started. Then you’ll need a few basic pages and just start posting articles to show people your expertise. Check out this article for more on setting up your blog,
The audiobook industry is booming, yet only 5% of books ever get made into audio format. If you’ve got a background in acting, or if people have said you’ve got a voice made for the radio, you can make extra money recording audio versions of independent and popular books. Sites like ACX connect authors with audiobook performers. So, whether you’re an author looking for more ways to sell your book, or an actor/voice actor looking to make some extra income, you can sell your services online.
If you enjoy taking pictures, creating illustrations, producing video, or producing audio, some sites will pay you for the rights to sell your work to its visitors. One of the biggest online services is iStockphoto, which gives you up to a 45% royalty rate for every picture or work of art they sell. Other sites included Depositphotos, Dreamstime, Fotolia, and Shutterstock.
