One of the cool things about Google AdSense is that it's so easy to get set up. If you have a blog or website, you can sign up for a free Google AdSense Account. From there, Google will give you a unique code that you will paste onto your website. Google takes it from there, tracking your page views, traffic, and earnings on your behalf. There is no upkeep or maintenance to get this thing going, which makes it a no-brainer if you have a website already.
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. For an in-depth SEO blueprint, check out our how to rank in Google guide for beginners.
Start by taking other courses you’re interested in: Not only is this important competitor and opportunity analysis, but it also gives you an idea of how a course could or should look and feel. What’s the pacing like? Is it via email, video, in-person chats? Once you understand how you want your course to look, it’s time to decide what it should include. Those same courses are a great starting place. How can you make your course better or more interesting? Do you have experience others don’t?
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.
–>Large programs require more infrastructure. The truth is that my first group coaching program relied on freeconferencecall.com and email to send out the homework. But, as the program grew from 5 people to 500, and the price increased from $197 to $1200, I had to put so much more in place for the program.  Now my group programs have private portals, big email campaigns, ad budgets, IT support people, community managers, etc etc. This infrastructure took me years to develop and build – in addition to revamping the program and delivering it as well.  That takes time, and it’s both frustrating and tiring.

–>It requires less in terms of infrastructure. The truth is that setting up big program offerings like I run in my business takes tools, time and people. Launches don’t happen overnight :).  But to be a private coach you only need a few things, like a simple website or LinkedIn page for your business, a way to take payment like check or Paypal, and a simple scheduling tool like Candidly or ScheduleOnce. These can be fairly easy and inexpensive to set up, and should cost you very little out of pocket.
25. Products – You can create your own product, such as an ebook or computer software. You would then use your blog as a promotion tool to get people to buy your product. As long as you create a legitimate product with a whole lot of value, you should be able to get some buyers, but like everything else with a blog, you’ll need the traffic to get the sells.
Write. Quality writing is always in demand. If you are a good writer and have experience blogging, copywriting, or editing, you could become a freelance writer. Assemble a portfolio of your writing (or update the one you have) and start looking for work. A great place to start is within your existing networks. You could also look for opportunities to write newsletters, blogs, or advertisements for local clients.
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.
Become the expert. The simple answer of how to get personal training clients is to make sure everybody knows that you’re a personal trainer. Once you set up your business, simply start posting workout tips on your Facebook, send an email to everybody you have ever met, and ask your parents to message their family and friends. Be sure to communicate the benefits of online training to your clients when reaching out to entice them. Here’s a list of a few of the benefits of online personal training to the client:
And while it will take time to build up a big-enough audience to attract advertisers and other ways to make extra income from your podcast, the opportunity is there. John Lee Dumas interviews entrepreneurs seven days a week for his podcast Entrepreneur on Fire and now makes more than $200,000 a month from it. In fact, John publishes all his income online and showed that he’s made almost $13 million since launching in 2012.

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.
We’ll go into more details regarding each step but let me give you a quick overview of each. The product/offer is the ClickBank product you’ll be promoting. This might seem like it’s simple enough but screwing up this step could potentially hinder you from earning a single cent because the other steps are built on top of it. Product research has its own separate section below.

If designing a website or blog sounds like too much, but you have products you are interested in selling, using a service to create an online store may be your best option. Again, once a store has been created, you need lots of visitors or a unique product to attract buyers. JumpSeller, Freewebstore, and Shopify are just a few of the hundreds of online services that allow you to create an online store.

Every year, hundreds of millions of documents are notarized in the United States: wills, mortgages, citizenship forms, handgun applications. While for decades, this has all been done in person, there is a budding crop of sites that allow notaries to take their services online. If you’re already a notary, you can sell your services online. Or, if you want to get started, check out the National Notary’s checklist for becoming a certified notary.

1-1 Coaching  – Those profiles led to requests for more individual coaching – and I created packages at $145, $745 and $2500. The workshops, seminars and Sunday School class quickly filled my schedule to capacity.  Over the years since I’ve gone from 5 days a week of personal coaching to about 1 day a month because of the income generated from other areas.  
There are dozens of online services that allow anyone from around the world to work at home (freelance) and complete work for other individuals and companies. Jobs can be anything from writing reviews, designing logos, programming, proofreading, data entry, accounting, payroll, translating, and much more. All of these services allow you to list your qualifications and set your pay rate or browse through available job listings. Below is a list of some of the more popular contractor and freelancing related services.

Rather than making money through subscriptions, YouTube channels are based on a traditional advertising system. Meaning the more viewers you get, the more you make. Once you’re approved for the YouTube Partner Program and can start including ads on your videos, with every 1,000 views, you will make approximately $2-$4. Which might not seem like a lot, but if you have 100 videos with 5,000 views a month each, that would be $1,000–$2,000 already. Just imagine if your videos start hitting millions of views!
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.
Finally, of course, there’s the teaching part. There are loads of techniques for every pursuit, and you should vary them in order to keep everyone engaged and interested. Q&A sessions, actual teacher-style lessons, role-playing, the list goes on. However you introduce the information, follow it up with some “homework” in which they have to apply it. At the next session, discuss how it went before moving on to something new.
If you have a budget and are willing to pay for traffic, you might want to explore investing in Facebook Ads, Google Adwords, Bing Ads or any of the other networks you can buy traffic from. Their first advantage is a double-edged sword. You can literally start receiving traffic within minutes from starting a campaign. But once you stop running the campaign, the “traffic tap” stops.
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.
I have developed what I think is a pretty cool 11-part auto responder series that solves a critical problem people have in my niche – it includes a number of affiliate links as well (although not clickbank – yet). I currently have a squeeze page set up which I’m driving traffic to through using FB ads, but I’m finding that I’m having to pay way too much for every conversion ( > $1.50 per conversion).
If you really wanted to make the list even more exhaustive, you could also discuss the various biological money-making methods (e.g., sperm donation, egg donation, etc.) and/or go into the more technical (e.g., hosting websites on one’s own server, building computers for others, etc.). Also, you could potentially explore those well-known money-making ventures, such as trading on the stock market, which are seemingly difficult to enter into by their apparent complexity by listing various online instructional tools which assist novices looking to get involved in them (e.g., Investopedia’s online simulator to prepare for buying/selling stocks). Sometimes those methods of making money which appear to be the most difficult are, in fact, relatively simple once you understand the underlying conceptual framework – many people just don’t realize this.
I’ve been trying for so long to make money on line, I don’t have any online marketing education am very new to his where and how do I learn step by stem with tutorial videos that can teach me how to implement the skills required to start and online business online ??? Be it as a blogger, affiliate marketer, or a vendor, I don’t even know from where to begin can you suggest and offer up a solution, besides wealthy affiliate ???
–>The biggest con of private coaching is that it isn’t scaleable. What that means is that you are always trading time for money, and you only have so much time to give as a coach. Sure, you can keep raising your rates to make your time more profitable, but eventually you will hit an upper limit on what you can charge, which means you will be limited on how much you can grow your business.  For some people, this is 100% okay! You can make plenty of money coaching people one-on-one. For others, you may want more flexibility and room for growth. The great news? It’s 100% up to you.
Thanks! I have a few products mixed into my blog posts, and will be adding more. I have found CB to be a mixed bag so far – but need more time to see how it pans out. Also wondering about setting up more sites to follow the funnel you set up. I was pleased to hear you mention having 3 follow ups in the responder sequence. Someone else had suggested 10! I figured by 4 or 5 you lost them anyway.

You’ll find that bloggers and small businesses will sometimes need a part of their site updated without investing in an entire site redesign, and sometimes freelancers will subcontract another freelancer for just a part of a website if they’re overloaded with work. You can even design stock components like menus or image sliders and sell them through sites like ThemeForest.
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.
Affiliate commissions  –  I wanted to attend conferences to help me learn and grow.  Many of those conferences offered an affiliate fee.  One of the first I attended was Mark Victor Hansen’s MegaBook University.  The price was $995 and I got a 30% affiliate fee.  I promoted it to my little group of friends, told them I’d buy them dinner, and had 12 people join me there.  I paid full price for myself, half price for my son and had flights and hotel expenses = $2500 and bought dinner for those 12 folks for another $300.  So I invested $2800.  But a week after I got home I got my affiliate check (33% of    the 12 attendees = $3582)  Deduct my total expenses and I got to attend the conference for free and netted a $782 profit.  I’ve done that more times than I can possibly remember with conferences, courses and programs.  We now conduct our Coaching with Excellence conferences and have affiliates who do the same as I did.
