I almost burst out laughing recently when I told someone I mostly work 4 day weeks (as I love 3 day weekends). They told me that’s OK as long as you’re doing 10 and 12 hour days. You’ve got to be kidding! I’m sure I’ve done a 12 hour day sometime when I was engrossed in finishing up a project, but that would never be the norm. That’s too much work and I’d be totally useless the next day.
If you’ve got a way with words and expertise in a niche, there are plenty of sites that will pay for articles and content you write. Think of the sites you read regularly. What can you contribute to them that would be interesting? Research your niche and then look for ways to pitch articles. Many sites will simply have a submission or contact link in the footer. To get started, check out my full guide to becoming a freelance writer on the side and then submit your articles to places like Listverse, TopTenz, A List Apart, International Living, FundsforWriters, and Textbroker.
You're beginner with Clickbank then you can pay attention to Grav (Gravity) indicator of product.

That’s not to say that a group setting only benefits the coach. When you have a group of learners, their ability to support and interact with each other can be very valuable. Sharing experiences, working with partners, doing group exercises, and otherwise varying the interaction patterns between clients makes for a much more interesting, dynamic, and fun session. Even formal education has taken on an approach that emphasizes peer-to-peer interaction.
If you just had a website up with your picture that says “I'm a coach, hire me!”, people will say “Who cares?” People are much more likely to hire and work with someone if they've already provided value to them in advance (through your content) and they've established a relationship with you (through your content). If you just have a coaching website that offers coaching – nobody cares because nobody knows anything about you, haven't received any value from you, nor do they have any relationship with you whatsoever.

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.
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.
Just like to add 1 additional “CON” to the list of Pros and Cons of Clickbank. Their rule on paying out the commissions earned. You must have 5 sales all from different credit card accounts before they will pay you what you have earned. That flat out sucks!. Affiliates work hard to get even 1 sale and because of Clickbanks rule, lose that money over time if they cannot get another 4 sales, the commission keeps reducing steadily if 4 more sales are not forthcoming. Clickbank has got to change that rule, which many feel is illegal!. A sale, is a sale, and the commission must be paid out. Basically, Clickbank is “Ripping-Off” affiliate marketers.
Another way to utilize your talent and business skills is to run corporate workshops online. Businesses are always looking for unique ways to help educate their workforce, and if you can package your talents into a day or half-day long session, you can sell that to companies all over the world to make money online. Start by building a portfolio and then reaching out on LinkedIn to influencers at relevant companies to see if they would be interested in you teaching their team.
Holly told me she started writing content in 2011. At the time, she still worked a full-time job but created content online part-time to supplement her income. Over time, she was able to double and triple her rates until she could quit her full-time job to write. These days, she makes bank as a freelance writer and teaches others to do the same via her online course, Earn More Writing.
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.
I haven’t personally done these lately. I did work with Gomez Peer a few years back. I don’t remember exactly how much I made. Either way, the money isn’t much, but the fact that it is very easy money, makes it worth while. All you have to do is install the software and then you go about your day as usual. There is literally no work involved, so even though the amount you make is not much, because there is no work involved, it is worth it.
Whether you have a website or are still dreaming up ideas for a blog, you can also look into affiliate marketing. With affiliate marketing, you partner with brands and businesses within the content of your website. If you mention a product or service, you link to that produce or service using a unique affiliate code you received when you signed up for that particular affiliate program. From there, you’ll make money any time someone buys a product or service through your link.
Starting a podcast, like making a YouTube channel or blog, comes down to telling interesting stories and building an engaged audience. I’m probably sounding like a broken record by now, but you need a niche that you’re interested in and there’s already a demand for. Come up with a list of topics you’d like to talk about and then search iTunes charts, Google Trends and other podcast research sites like cast.market to see what’s currently out there and popular.
The mistake that I made when I was a dating coach was that I was constantly hustling to get clients. Every month we'd need to get enough clients to fill our seminars with and to be able to work with 1-on-1 to cover our monthly expenses. It was very stressful and challenging, as you're always exchanging your time to get more and more people out. We were never really getting ahead, but just working our butts off just to maintain how well do did the previous month.
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.
A lot of people will recommend selecting a niche/category you’re familiar with right off the bat and browsing products inside it. Although I agree with this approach for strong reasons I’ll outline later, I do not think it should be the starting point. Simply go ahead and hit the “magnifying glass” button next to the search bar without typing anything.
Most importantly, your website should describe what results each client can expect, assuming they put the effort in. How are you going to change the way they (insert activity here)? The goal of every great product or service should be to solve a customer’s problem. Your website should reflect the fact that you know what the problem is, and explain exactly how your service can address it.
If you have a knack for organization, you can make money online as a virtual assistant helping people to keep their days in order. A virtual assistant will do everyinthing from bookkeeping to research, database entry, booking travel, and managing email. It can also be an awesome way to rub shoulders with some very important people, build up your professional network, and of course grow another stream of income. You can find great gigs on UpWork, Fiverr, Indeed, and Remote.co.
Interest in the niche. Passion/huge interest is a bonus. People really underestimate this point. You’ll be eating, drinking and breathing this product/niche for weeks, possibly months and years to come if it's successful and you start focusing on growing it. Having an interest in it makes things so much easier and helps you keep going when things get tough.
Can you recognize a good deal when you see one? Then, consider buying merchandise to resell on eBay. Or, try other sites like Amazon. Garage sales and thrift stores are full of obscure items. Often, people don’t know how valuable they are. Therefore, they sell them for less than what they’re worth. As a result, you can buy them for a discount and make a large profit.
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).
You really only want to start offering coaching and consulting once the demand is there. The demand is there when you have a certain number of visitors coming to your blog per day or you have people contacting you asking for your help and advice. Once you have people contacting you and asking for your help, this is a good sign that they trust you and see you as an expert. They now WANT your help and advice. All you have to do now is put together a coaching page or website that makes yourself available to them as a coach.
Coaching Goals and Planning Form: The reason your client is coming to you is they either want something or don’t want something in their life. One of the things that will be helpful to move forward as quickly and easily as possible in your coaching sessions is to identify your client’s goals. They can be short-term goals or long term goals. They can be from one category or all of the categories. Once you have your client’s list of goals, help her/him arrange them in the order of priority
21. Facebook – Facebook swap shops are great for selling things locally. It’s like CraigsList, but a little easier. You simply search for swap shops in your area and ask to join the group. Once you’re in, take a picture of the item, write a quick description with the price and post it. It doesn’t get much easier than that. You can generally expect to get about what you would get at a yard sale, maybe a little more.

First off, I’m a blogger so it seems wrong not to mention it, but more importantly, it’s a legitimate way to make money. It’s quite possibly the least straight-forward way on this list, but it’s very doable and it’s also quite possibly the funnest way on this list. I love blogging and I know hundreds of bloggers who feel the same. So let’s talk about making money blogging and what it really means.
To succeed in this business means becoming a continual student, but it doesn’t mean you have to buy everything that comes down the pike. With my coaching clients, I’m constantly telling them NOT to buy specific new products they ask me about UNLESS they’re about a subject they’re currently working on. I always have a stack of books on my shelf that will be read, but I’m also often putting the stops on any new information purchases until I get through the ones I have.
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.
Join a startup accelerator: Another great option is to apply to a startup accelerator like Y Combinator, 500 startups, or TechStars, where a group of investors will help coach you, connect you with potential partners, and provide startup cash in return for a small stake in your company. The competition is tough to get into these, so don’t rely on them as your only path forward.
You see, coaching and consulting requires time. It's not a “passive income stream” by any measure and doing it means you're still stuck in the paradigm of trading your time for money. As long as you're trading your time for money, you'll never be able to scale up your income or have freedom. That's why I'm huge on creating AUTOMATED SYSTEMS that make you predictable, repeatable passive income while you're sleeping, day-after-day, month-after-month.
Coaches, mentors, instructors, and gurus are all over the place and they advertise everywhere. Simple searches on Google will reveal thousands of alternatives. I'm surprised you're having trouble finding them because my experience has been that once they know you're looking for a mentor, they will be all over you "like flies on a rib roast." (Thanks cousin Eddy).
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.
I haven’t sold any of my own products on ClickBank, but I have considered it. I know this can be a very profitable venture. I didn’t know that they had a reputation for mistreating affiliates. I will have to look into this before committing to them and a place to sell anything. I do agree that CB displays a good amount of apathy for the quality of products on their site, as shown with some of the examples above, but I also think that they are taking steps to move in the direction of quality. whether or not they follow through and how long it takes for them to get there is another story.
