One of the best things about working online is that you get to choose your own work schedule. You can work at night, during the day or even weekends. It is really up to you. This means that you will get to spend more time with your family, go for vacations, plan holiday activities, tour the world and much more. In addition, you get to live anywhere around the globe without the worry of job transfers.
Thanks for the informative post. I certainly agree that there are many poor quality products on Clickbank but there is certainly an opportunity to make money through Clickbank. The trick as you point out is to sort the good from the bad. Personally I will not even consider a product with a gravity lower than 10 but prefer a gravity above 50. Like everything we do it is about doing good research first.
Please note that some of the links below are affiliate links and at no additional cost to you, I will earn a commission. Know that I only recommend products, tools and learning resources I've personally used and believe are genuinely helpful, not because of the small commissions I make if you decide to purchase them. Most of all, I would never advocate for buying something that you can't afford or that you're not yet ready to implement.
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.
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.
I got my first taste of coaching when I was 20 years old. I was heavily involved in attempting to improve my self-confidence, social skills and dating life. I had a friend at the time that was starting a dating coaching company in Vancouver, BC and I originally started helping him out with that. I had made such a transformation in myself in every way, that I was asked to help out with coaching. I had the opportunity to travel with this person around Canada and the U.S., all expenses paid for, just to help him with his coaching clients.
The first step is really just putting yourself out there with a blog, videos or a podcast so that you can get found. Publish high quality content and give it away for free. This will help you attract visitors and a following. If your stuff is good, people will WANT to work with you and hire you as their coach. You can also do this through publishing Kindle books or selling your own information products, as people will see you as an authority and expert and will be more likely to hire you.
The biggest “a-ha” realization for new coaches has been that their job is *not* to tell the client exactly what to do. It’s a common misconception that the coach is being hired to be the boss and give directions. Coaching is much more successful as a collaboration, with the coach as a strong listener. Appreciative inquiry is also key — for example, “I see this pattern. How can we address this?” Often, the client knows the best answer and just needs guidance and support to find it.
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:
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.
With so many possibilities to make money online these days and T-shirt business on Amazon (Merch by Amazon) is one of the best possibilities. With the Merch by Amazon print on demand service, you sell only the t-shirts your customers want to buy. You never have to worry about inventory or out-of-pocket costs. To get started, simply set-up your Merch by Amazon account, upload the artwork for your t-shirt, and push submit - Amazon takes care of the rest.
If you want more leverage and control of your business then creating your own product is the way to go. Package your knowledge and use sources like upwork.com or Fiverr - Freelance Services Marketplace for The Lean Entrepreneur for help with the things you are not good at. Then spend your time getting more affiliates and increasing your gravity score. How do you get traffic? By running ads on CB and other aff sites, doing solo ads to aff marketing lists, email outreach, FB messenger outreach to bloggers with big fan pages related to what you do, and so on… You don’t even need to use Clickbank if you have your own product but if you struggle with traffic, it is a good method to get your brand out there. From there you can email your affiliates whenever you have something new to promote and arrange private deals.
It is also better to view ClickBank as a tool for generating leads, instead of hoping to sell 100,000 copies of your e-book immediately. Use ClickBank to drive visitors to your website, then get them on a newsletter list and market to them repeatedly. You may want to offer a contest or freebie along with the newsletter to encourage people to sign up with you.
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.
What this article teaches you is that if you produce something that is shareable and interesting, driving traffic to it is MUCH easier. You can use social media, you can run link building, you can share it on niche communities and nobody is going to ban it or downvote it. Actually, if your front end is great value, people will share it around without you asking. Then all you have to do is offer a free downloadable resource in this piece of content (that does not decrease its shareability as it’s more free goodies) and THEN start selling via email follow up.
Give your opinion. If you only want to make a little bit of money from, you can get paid to take part in mock juries and focus groups. Attorneys use these “juries” to survey public opinion and help prepare for actual trials. To participate, you’ll have to join a site and meet some basic juror qualifications. You can then review and respond to case materials at your convenience.
As you start regularly putting out content, you’ll hopefully start to build a bit of an audience. But to start seeing real money from YouTube you need to market your videos elsewhere. Share your channel on Twitter and Facebook. Distribute videos anywhere else you can think of. Also, interact with comments and build a community around the videos you’re making so people will share it with their friends.
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!
