Find an audience for your passion or hobby and you’re all set to make money online doing something you love via a niche website. That of course, is easier said than done. Creating a profitable niche website takes time and is not intended for the faint of heart. But, if you can hurdle the steep challenges and positively answer a few key questions on whether the website business idea you’re thinking about is profitable, then you can begin building it and eventually monetize through advertising, affiliates, or other relevant products.


I have been making money online for over a year now. Not in the big time yet, still consider myself to be learning my craft. I was doing it really ineffectively (using adsense and amazon along with a t shirt affiliate deal) and driving traffic almost exclusively though facebook. Probably averaged about $800 a month over the last year, mostly because Christmas brought an absolute ton of t shirt sales) 

DISC Debriefing  –  When I had my first business I started using the DISC profiles to help with hiring properly.  I saw the value of that information and started providing the DISC profiles for people where I would do a one hour debriefing to understand the career applications – for $145.  We now offer DISC certification to help others do the same.    


–>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.
There are better business models out there but Clickbank can be an ok way to learn. The downside is most people who start on there get their ad accounts blocked as they don’t understand the terms of service and can’t advertise from them in the future. The web is becoming more transparent and people are wiser to what an affiliate ad is. The people who click them tend to be an older demographic 50+. If you are going to promote something, make a decision to only promote good products.
I started Affliliate Marketing in 2015 (it's too late i think ^^) with the easiest way of making money with Product Launch, which is advertising upcoming products. But i did not succeed in working with Product Launch (on JVZoo site). Actually, i didn't spend much time for it. At this time, i am focusing on Freelancer jobs (as you know i worked on Freeelancer.com site since 2011). This is one of the legitimate ways to earn money online also. If you don't know it, you can take a look here. After this, i've figured out Clickbank and i like it.
–>It’s something you might do anyway! If you love the coach or product, there’s a good chance you would recommend it or share it – so why not also get paid? It’s a win-win. And to be clear, I think you should only partner with someone who you really like, who has a product or service you 100% believe in (i.e., you’d recommend it even if you weren’t getting paid).
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.
Part of what you’re teaching the clients— whatever it is you’re teaching them— is to be committed and consistent. That’s why it makes sense to sell packaged rather than individual sessions. Consider it onboarding; take their interest from casual to consistent, and start to build a longer-term relationship with them. Whether it’s once, twice, or several times per week, sell packages that last for at least 3 months.
Fiverr.com is a website where everything is available for $5. People offer various services ranging from software installation to creating silly videos. It is really simple to use and very easy to get started. Get registered for free, create gigs offering your services and get paid through PayPal. What kind of gigs? Recording video testimonials, writing poems, installing WordPress, creating logos and just anything.
This is the question that gets asked the most, but it's the one with really no answer. It depends on a lot of variables, so you can make anything from zero to tens of thousands of dollars per month. For me personally, I don't make that much from Clickbank, and never have. I take in about $100 per month. It isn't impressive, but I'll explain more about my stats below.
Ever since the idea of online auctions came into existence, the online selling market has been on the rise. Many are interested, but don’t know how to get started. There are still all kinds of ways to make money by selling online, whether you’re selling what you already have or buying and selling like a store. Before we get started, here are a few general tips when selling anything online:
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.
If you have an e-book or online course that you'd like to promote, ClickBank makes that easy. Once you sign up as a vendor you can list your product with them and set the commission percentage you are willing to pay to anyone who chooses to market and promote your product for you. Once your product is listed, other ClickBank users will start promoting it on their own websites. This will drive traffic to the sales page on your website and hopefully result in sales.
Since coaching and consulting isn't a passive income stream and it actively requires my time, there's an opportunity cost for me in taking on clients.  That opportunity cost is it takes away my time that I could spend on creating passive income streams.  That's why I'm in a position where I can charge whatever I want if people want my 1-on-1 help.  As I grow and make even more money, I will be forced to continue to raise my rates, as whatever I'm charging now won't be worthwhile enough for me to take on clients at.
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!
hello my name is ralph an I have been trying to promote clickbank productes on line but I have not had any luck , I do not have any website and to be honest no money what so ever, and live with my parents right now and have been trying to get something going to make some kind of money to move forward with everything , but have had no luck in promoting any product from click bank , just wondering what you can suggest to me , and please do not say get a job because I have been looking for one.
In the first email I first send them the link to the lead magnet a second time (the excuse to email them) and ask them if they saw the offer (affiliate link). I then go on and give a bullet point list of why I think they should get it as well as maybe 1 testimonial to give it credibility and start easing into the emotional realm. I’ll usually finish with a question, opening a loop making them want to open the next email.
Walk around your neighborhood or town and I’m sure you’ll see tons of great local businesses with terrible design. However, with increasingly easy-to-use tools like Adobe Illustrator, Venngage, Stencil, and Visme, just about anyone with a creative mindset and a good amount of motivation can start making money online by being a graphic designer for local companies.
Decide on your client type. Pick no more than three types of clients that you want to include in your online personal training program. The only way to truly scale your program is to template workouts, which means you need people with similar goals and issues. For example, 25-30 males looking for muscle, 40-50-year-old post-pregnant females, or 18-25-year-old male college students.
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.
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
Choose the product to promote very carefully, visit the site that sells the product or service directly and how that site is presented. Is the design simple, persuasive and is the product high quality, priced reasonably and useful to the audience you are addressing? Is it in line with the right ethical and moral system you want to be associated with?
It seems like people are still searching for ways to make extra money using paypal. From my research, the number of searches increases, much more than make money online. It must be because of the chain email which I mentioned in my previous post about make money using paypal. Now I’m not saying that this scheme doesn’t work, what I’m questioning is the way it works. In the email, it even says that paypal verified this scheme as legal. I don’t know whether that statement is a genuine paypal statement. I doubt it though. There’s a hint of pyramid scheme involve in this type of make money online technique, and paypal hates pyramid scheme. Let me show you how this make money using paypal scheme really looks like a pyramid one

Next, you’ll need the right tools. You can be as complicated or simple as you want depending on your comfort with audio equipment, but at the minimum you’ll want a microphone and software for recording your voice. Companies like Behringer, Blue, Focusrite, and others sell studio-quality plug-and-play podcast setups that can get you recording today.
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 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… 

You have knowledge. You have experience. You want to get into the online coaching/teaching business, because you know that you can help someone reach the goals you’ve reached yourself. You don’t need to be a leading expert in the field. You definitely don’t need to be a “guru.” You’ve been a little farther down a certain road than most, and that’s worth money. So how do you get started?
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.

Like everything we do it is about doing good research first.
If you want to help shape products in their early stages, joining an online focus group or answering survey questions is a great way to make extra money online. They don’t pay as much as some of the other options we’ve highlighted, but you can join groups on sites like Survey Junkie, Swagbucks, and IPSOS that pay out through Amazon gift cards, check, or PayPal. You’ll be asked to provide a bit of information about your demographics (age, location, etc…), but after that you can get going making money through surveys.
You’ll also need time for review, feedback, instructions, and progress checks. There’s a lot to do besides actually teaching the session’s content! For example, it’s often a good idea to have clients share their “wins” and their struggles each session, to commiserate on their progress and stimulate ideas for improvement. You should also go over what was learned in the last session, and see how clients applied it. These things contextualize the content, and create continuity and accountability over the whole course of the “package.”
Of course, most content that ends up on the Internet doesn’t pass through the hands of a paid freelancer, but there are plenty of ways for you to make money with editing and design skills. Companies like Skillcrush, for example, might hire a freelancer to create blog images like the ones you see here, or a new company might hire a freelancer to create images around a marketing campaign.
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.

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.
If you've developed valuable skill sets or picked up certifications within your industry over the years, offering your consulting services to local business owners can be a lucrative way to make money online. Whether you're an expert marketer, business strategist, or manufacturing aficionado, there's likely a local business owner who's willing to pay you to help them solve an issue with their company. Start with this 18-step checklist to becoming a local business consultant from Karyn Greenstreet and then use my guide to crafting an effective cold email to convince them to hire you.

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.
Seyah@ You have two options. You can get your money via cheque OR you can get to your bank account. However, Clickbank does not have Combodia in the list of available banks. Alternatively you can get a bank account from payoneer. Register here to create your free account and then apply for US Bank account. Payoneer will give you a free US account. You can then enter your bank details in Clickbank to get your money. Payoneer will also issue you a Debit Card that can be used in a ATM to withdraw your money.
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’re the vendor, then you create your own product and set it up using Clickbank’s system. They then list your product in their marketplace so that tens of thousands of affiliates can see you. They handle the tracking using unique tracking links and cookies so they know exactly where the sale came from and credit the referring account accordingly.
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.
I, too, have always looked at ClickBank as a secondary and even tertiary monetization source. But it can be a great sources of revenue. I linked one of my articles to a related product on CB, and without really doing promotion or anything unusual, I get a few sales a week. Mind you, the keyword(s) for the post aren’t that huge either. So, even though the traffic not huge on that post, it still manages to get some sales.

For most kinds of coaching, Google Hangouts or Skype should be able to meet your needs. Both are free, both work well with a good internet connection, and both allow you to hold live video sessions with up to 10 total people at a time. Google Hangouts has the added bonus of automatically recording and saving your sessions for later reference, but the same can be done through Skype with some added software (For Mac users, we recommend Ecamm’s Call Recorder).
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.
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.
I don’t try to sell too much. All you need to do is to drive value and give good information to the buyer. Put yourself in the shoes of the buyer and address their fears and questions. Don’t beat around the bush and don’t try to waste their time and at the end, try showing some sort of proof or results. If you own the product, show what’s inside and talk about your experience with it. This will help you to build a relationship with them quickly.
Clickbank is a simple, yet complicated place. In general, it has 2 different functions. One for vendors (product owners) and another one for affiliates (people like you). Vendors publish products (usually digital) and affiliates sell those for them when an affiliate makes a sale, they receive a commission (usually 50%). Clickbank pays anything from $25 to over $150 per sale, depending on the product price and how much vendor is paying in commissions per sale.
–>There’s a lot of flexibility in group coaching. I only offer programs at certain times of the year. What’s nice about that is that I can take downtime in between and not be beholden to clients, and I can also deliver the programs from anywhere, as long as I keep timezones in mind when I plan my travels :). Tools like Facebook have made group coaching communities instantly accessible at any time, so I can have folks all over the world participate in my group programs and get feedback when they need it.
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.
Online surveys are an easy way of making money online. Companies assign market research websites with the task of gathering feedback from their consumers and target audience. Researches make use of online surveys to complete their assignments. They share a portion of the money with survey participants. Beware of paid survey scam websites. Legitimate paid surveys websites such as SurveySavvy and Synovate will rarely ask you any money for participation.
I have been reading your articles and been seeing landing pages. Question with that, as a newbie, where will you get the ‘bonus’ that you will give to the ones who put their email address. Also, say you used the same method when they are buying products, add bonus. Same question still, where or what type of bonuses would this be. Haven’t gone through all your videos. Maybe you went over it. Will check. Hope you reply on this. Will email you as well. Thanks!

Become a virtual assistant. Virtual assistants are independent contractors who perform administrative services for small-business owners, medical and legal offices, and executives. Among other things, virtual assistants plan events, make travel arrangements, correspond with clients, and manage data, and they do all of this from home. If you decide to become a virtual assistant, consider joining the International Virtual Assistants Association to gain access to networking opportunities and potential employers.
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.
