In the past I would create videos that ranked instantly within minutes of being uploaded using a variety of different methods that would then get free traffic going to a presell lander that I build off free wordpress themes that lead to my clickbank hoplink. There are many launch notification sites that details contests for AFF launches that are coming up. It makes it really easy to launch jack their branded terms e.g. product + review, and then rank on page 1 in Google with a parasite property, YouTube video, or even on Adwords.
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.
–>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 was thinking print because I understand that market much better, as I come from that world. Also, there is an immense amount of competition online, specifically regarding PPC. Finally, print offers something which PPC ads do not IMO, which is, when people see something in a newspaper or magazine, they give it more weight. They tend to put more trust into it. Even though they shouldn’t, they assume because something is in print, it must be good and worthy. However…
Software is important, but not imperative. You can still use them, but the days of Excel spreadsheets are over. Good software automates almost every aspect of your business. I’m an unabashed fan of Trainerize (and have since become an advisor). If you want to give the program a try, use this link and you’ll also get a free Ebook from me on getting your first few clients.
And you don’t have to worry that you’re new to all of this. As long as you set realistic expectations about what you can do and you’re clear about what your client wants, earning money off brand new tech skills is totally within the realm of possibility. I did it, dozens of Skillcrush alumni do it every month, and it’s actually the best way to learn a lot in a short amount of time.
Long-tail keywords are search phrases, rather than one or two words. If you are planning to promote an online poker course for example, you might do some keyword research and decide that the term "online poker course" has too much competition from existing websites, but articles based on things like "When to push during a sit-n-go" don't have as much competition and may yield more traffic.
Sign up for a reputable affiliate network: Aside from Amazon, there are dozens of large reputable affiliate networks, such as Share-A-Sale, Clickbank, and Skimlinks, that specialize in connecting you with merchants who are looking for affiliates to sell their products. They charge relatively low commission fees for the privilege of connecting you with merchants, and the merchants on these sites tend to offer much higher commission percentages or set dollar amount payouts.
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.
A lot of affiliates are backwards in time to close the sale, you need to, and use the nut to be in the customer’s. You want to insure that the material will be that visitors will find useful and interesting. This way you are building a relationship with visitors and projecting an image of someone who can be trusted and who knows a little about what this saying. It is ironic, really, but if you do not put a personal touch in your site, or your sales letter, people will only come as an affiliate that want to make money at your expense and will not even give a second look at the sales page you are trying to send them – even if this product is really worth.
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’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.

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.
My situation is I’m a Professor and Program Director for a Community College teaching massage therapy, a very in-demand field yet my college does little marketing. It’s my job to recruit students. I have a Facebook page and Twitter, and about 100+ followers on each. Can you see this type of system with funnels etc. working to help recruit potential students? If so, how? I feel like building content and creating opt ins should help, as we too are offering a “product”. Thanks for your time!
4. Immense choices - As mentioned before, there would be immense open doors at your doorstep. You can do whatever you need. You don't have to be an Ace in a particular field however you can be a Specialist in a specific field which you jump at the chance to do the most. In case you're great in keeping in touch with, you could make a digital book and offer it on the web, or begin a blog on a particular specialty or in the event that you are great in coding, you can outline site layouts and offer it online simply like consultants do.
If you want to build a website about a specific topic (your niche) then using email is not to be missed. Basically, when customers read the contents in our website. They have subscribed to our newsletter (you can see this on the sidebar of our blog). Then we will send marketing email with offers, discounts and advertising other products also to their emails.
The below is a very superficial overview of what it takes to become an online trainer. It’s not perfect. I know this because I wrote the textbook on online training (literally). Still, the below steps are good enough and it’s probably more important for you to get going right now with some forward momentum then getting everything right. For now good enough is just that, good enough.
Rule #1 for getting clients should come as no surprise: you need a website. Even if you’re coaching in the physical world, you need at least a single web page. Your site should describe the number and duration of sessions in each package, and all the other benefits the customers are entitled to. Will they have access to a Facebook group? Infographics or e-books? What kind of support (besides the actual sessions) will you offer? Payment rates and methods should also be included.
Whether it’s a sport, a craft, travel, coding, hula-hooping, haiku, whatever it is; you can trade your experience for cash. Any victory or victories you’ve had can be converted into a tutorial-based business. There’s money in motivating and mentoring people who— like you did at one point— want to get started but don’t know how. All you need is the right tools, the right techniques, and the willingness to get started.
Take your solution to the ONE problem you’re solving and break that solution into Milestones. (i.e. If you’re a relationship coach who helps clients save their marriages, perhaps the first Milestone would be re-establishing communication. Then the second Milestone might be identifying the major problems. The third Milestone might be establishing intimacy, and so on.) You should have about 6-10 Milestones when all is said and done.
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.
- Having a job is a great way to start making some cash flow, but you should use it to actually start a business. A job isn’t scalable. You only have 24 hours in a day, and you're not even going to work more than 12 hours in a day. Having access to the internet is all you need, you can see that attention is now the new way to becoming successful. The more exposure your brand gets (whether that is from posts, social media, websites, etc) the more opportunities you have to monetize off your traffic. When you have a lot of people's attention, and you create a product, you’re likely to make a sale. THIS IS SCALABLE. Anything you put out on the internet compounds, continually getting more and more traffic that gives you a chance to make a sale.
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.
