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.
The number two topic is diet. The great thing about our diet coaches is that they are all specialized around very specific diets. So if you want to go Paleo, we have Paleo coaches. If you want to go Slow-Carb, then we have Slow-Carb coaches. It always bothered me that so many diet coaches in the world were offering generic nutrition advice when most of us have really specific diets in mind.
And last, the content of your ad. If attractive or intriguing, it will be used more. If it is boring or boilerplate, people won’t be drawn to click on it. This process becomes second nature, especially when you see what works in general and for your audience, and how to hone your budget for maximum exposure and effectiveness. Once it is a habit for you, you will see clearly how gurus use these steps to make thousands of dollars every day.

I started out as a newbie in 2010, and quit my job in 2012. Now I spend my days helping other people on their own businesses. If you want to start a new online business or have an existing one you need help with, you can get 1-on-1 support from ME! All you need to do is join the same online business training center where I learned to build my first business.


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. 

29. Videos – This could be an entire section on it’s own. Many people have made money by creating YouTube videos. Evan of EvanTube is a kid and he has made millions by creating reviews of products that other kids his age would use. It’s not easy to get views into the millions, but once you do, you’ll start seeing some cash come in. Many bloggers have completely turned to videos to get their point across by starting a video blog.

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:


The first question to ask yourself is whether you’d prefer to train small groups or individual students. Most people think of private lessons as more expensive, and therefore more valuable. But while private lessons do have their advantages, that’s not what the price reflects. Private lessons cost more because only one person is paying for them! Whether you have 1 client or 10, an hour of your time is still an hour. That’s why most coaches prefer groups, to get the maximum profit out of their own time.
One example was the absurdity of the 1-hour session. An effective workout is almost never exactly finished in one hour’s time. Some protocols call for 45 minutes, some an hour and a half. Yet in order to avoid a scheduling nightmare, I was forced to be with each client for exactly an hour. This meant that some sessions would end with a 5-minute stretch to fill the time, whereas for others I would have to rush through the breaks to get the entire workout in.
Thanks for the great article. If i’m a manufacture/seller and want hire affiliate to promote our product, which are the most effective ways to do so? To be more specific, we’re a start-up selling glass vessel sinks and high end kitchen sinks/faucets(www.arsumo.com).We’d like to give high commission rates for marketers to sell our product (10+%). Our product quality is great and we sell on wayfair and overstock currently but like to grow our own marketing channel. Thank you for your advise! I’m also considering to take your class to dive deeper into the marketer world.
While Etsy is fantastic for handmade goods that you’ve already created, if you’ve got killer designs that would look good on phone cases, t-shirts, or even wall hangings, pillows, and duvets, you can sell them on Society6 without paying anything to start. Society6 lets artists upload their designs and create their own shops where they choose what products their designs can be used on. That means one design can be used to make a whole range of awesome products that are printed and shipped on demand whenever someone buys from you. With top creators making thousands every month just from selling their designs.
2. InboxDollars – InboxDollars is similar to Swagbucks, since you’re going to be taking surveys, shopping, etc., so if you want to maximize your return, sign up with both websites. They also offer a search engine that pays you (like Swagbucks) and you get $5 just for signing up.  I won’t continue to list survey sites one after another down the list, but if you want to get paid to take surveys, also check out GlobalTestMarket, E-Poll Surveys and Survey Club.
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.
Register in least 10 forums and try to post at least 100 comments in every forum. However, don’t spam in the forum otherwise you account can get ban. If the forum is relevant to your product, you will surely earn commission in your first few days. Test the product if it is performing good, then post more comments, otherwise change the product and start promoting that one.

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.

Check out the work being offered and prices that are being paid if you have access on the site for that information. You can't start out setting a premium price for your product or service, even if you're offering high quality. On most of these sites, you'll build up a reputation, sales data, as well as reviews of your products or services. Once you have a track record, you can raise your prices if necessary, but first you need to get some work.
Google's getting strict in which, once they get to your site, they're check your whole funnel because they don't want you to promote shitty authors because it makes them look bad, because it gives users a bad experience for using Google, but in general I haven't found Google to go as far as go all the way to checkout after they buy a product it's very rare, so you could just send them directly to the ClickBank product, plus, they converted and if they don't buy, you have their email address, because they bought the tripwire offer for you and not all of them will buy the other offer.
Coaching is one of the fastest growing areas of career opportunity today – and yet I see competent coaches making income comparable to that of a hamburger flipper.  We are told that 95% of coaches never make more than $40,000/yr.  So let’s assume that’s a reasonable average – BUT you’re smart enough to recognize some other ways to share your core message.
Blogging is something that requires patience, persistence and discipline. It may mean writing everyday for over a year before you really start to see any money from it. There are exceptions to the rule, but from my dealings with other bloggers, it seems to be pretty common to spend one or even two years building your blog, your brand and your authority, before making any serious amount of money.
Has anyone ever told you you have a voice for radio? Are you great at creating original characters with just your voice? There are tons of people looking to pay for quality voice overs for their corporate videos, animation series, or educational videos. Check out Fiverr and UpWork or create a profile on a specialized site like Voices.com or The Voice Realm to get started making money online doing voice overs.
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.
Medium is an online community where anyone can post articles and essays and get them in front of their audience of millions of monthly readers. While it can be a great place to build your audience for your own blog or find customers for your consulting business, with Medium’s new Partner Program, you can now make money online whenever someone reads your articles. Register for free and you can choose whether your articles are freely available or only readable by those people paying $5/month for a premium Medium membership. You’ll make money based on the amount of people who read and engage with your posts each month.

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.

If you don’t have the skills to build yourself a top-notch site or design compelling graphics, invest in a quality designer and copywriter to help you get your project off the ground. They’ll be able to help you set up your business for successful conversion. After all, if you’re going to put the time into starting a new venture, don’t you want to succeed?
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
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.
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.
“I dreamed of creating a community that empowered people and gave them the tools to achieve their dreams. At the time, I felt unfulfilled and unhappy with my job and life, so TNC rapidly became my after-work obsession...I am crazy about helping others find that same “something” in their lives. Whether it be sharing all of my lessons learned so you can grow the biz of your dreams or reminding you why you’re ready, even when you think you’re not, I hope TNC unlocks something BIG deep inside you.”

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.
In 2017, there were almost 90 million pet dogs in the US. Which has opened up a huge opportunity to make money online as a dog watcher or sitter. Specialized sites like Rover or Care.com connect pet owners with pet walkers, sitters, and boarding houses to help look after their best friends when they’re at work or on a trip. If you’re an animal lover, you can make extra money and get to spend some quality time with a furry friend.
A lot of people who approach me for individual coaching are already running an online personal training program haphazardly. They’re frustrated because they can’t find clients, and the continual churn of writing programs and email maintenance is time-consuming. Training people online isn’t leveraging your time appropriately if you don’t take advantage of the software and develop systems to do all the heavy lifting for you.
I think Clickbank is going to be around for a while. Digital information products, membership sites, PDF guides and other information that can be bought and sold on the internet is only going to grow. I give CB a hard time because I work in the internet marketing industry so I see horribly hyped and misleading products all the time, but there were a few goodies I found in my research for this article. I'm not recommending you promote these, but I just thought that they looked like high-value products for the right niche audience.

You’ll make money based on the amount of people who read and engage with your posts each month.


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.

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.
If you want to get paid immediately, find a website or client who needs articles, e-books, newsletters and guides. Offer them your writing service for a fee. You don’t need any investment or any website. Though payments can be less than $5 per 500 words, it’s nonetheless a quick way of making some money. You can find writing gigs on Fiverr, Elance and Craigslist.

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.
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.
Google and other major traffic sources don’t like when you direct link or create bridge pages so brush up on how to create compliant landing pages OR look up some competitors promoting clickbank/jvzoo products on Google or Bing. If you miss steps e.g. no privacy policy, ToS, have thin content, and so on then your accounts can be suspended which is no good.

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:
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.
–>It’s a great way to get started. Look, when you are a new coach you are often figuring things out as you go. You have to do in order to learn! And working with folks one-on-one allows for a lot of flexibility along the way – you can tweak your system or your services as you go, without having to commit to a long haul with a lot of people. Private coaching also allows you to really get your hands on people and enact big change, which also builds great case studies and testimonials!

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.

But, like everything else, systems are everything. You would tell your client that he or she needs a strong base first before getting into the fancy stuff, right? Well, your as online personal trainer, you run your business the same way. Build it right from the beginning, even on a very small scale, and the freedom you desire is closer than you may think.
All you need to get started is a USB microphone that you can find in virtually every electronics store or on Amazon. Remember, the vast majority of voice overs are not for a Hollywood movie. They're for testimonials, reviews, narration, and voice prompts on business phone systems. Voices.com and VoiceBunny.com are two of the big players in this space to look into.
