–>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.

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.
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.
If you don’t mind doing other people’s chores, then TaskRabbit is a great option for making money online. Earn extra income by walking your neighbor’s dog or mowing Mr. Smith’s lawn. It might seem like not the most lucrative option, but the top taskers reportedly earn as much as $7000 a month, making this a full-time way to make money online for some.
Making a website or blog can be a great way to make money on the Internet, and if it is a successful site, it can even become a full-time job. However, creating a successful site or blog takes lots of work, learning, and is not something that will start making money immediately. Before any site or blog can start making serious money, it needs to be getting lots of visitors.
Once you have that problem or need nailed, the next step is to validate that idea and make sure you’ve actually got customers who will pay for it. This means building a minimum viable product, getting objective feedback from real customers, incorporating updates, testing the market for demand, and getting pricing feedback to ensure there’s enough of a margin between your costs and what consumers are willing to pay.
The way to make big money as an affiliate is to launch jack (more profitable since you don’t necessarily have to pay for cold-traffic). You can use Google Adwords, Facebook ads, SEO, video SEO, parasite SEO, and so on to rank the products branded terms online and capture organic traffic as well as branded keyword search traffic which is often low competition on Google/Bing compared to the more broader terms.
If you can click interesting, high-quality photographs, you can sell your images on stock photo websites such as iStockPhotos and get paid when someone downloads your photos. Even if you upload one good photo which sells over and over again, you can make good money. Imagine the earning potential when you have hundreds of images on stock photo websites.
There's always people that prefer to work with someone 1-on-1 and require that personalized attention and feedback to get to where they want to go. Some people don't just want to “read the manual”, but want someone to SHOW THEM HOW TO DO IT and guide them every step of the way. They want accountability. They want access to someone that can answer their questions and give them that feedback that can make a huge difference in their lives. This is the fastest way for anyone to achieve results and to get to where they want to go.
If my piece of content is so unique and valuable around hiking backpack recommendations, that other reputable outdoor websites are willing to link to it and build the page’s authority, then I’d have a very real opportunity to rank high in organic search for these search terms (meaning, my page will come up first when someone searches for hiking backpacks).
There are many more, most in the Arts & Crafts category. The point is that you have some skills or knowledge that are in demand out there. You simply need to connect with the buyers. In the past, you were limited to marketing craft items in local markets. Now you have a national or even global marketplace available for you to make more money online.
#3. Coaches who have their own audience and who are strong writers often build training plans. I don’t love the term “info product,” but that’s essentially what these are. If you can convert your advice into actionable steps (like a Couch to 5K training plan), then you can put a price on that and sell it. We look for plans that are already selling well and then try to boost them through a cross-promotion.
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 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?
On these websites, you'll have a store or profile presence that is usually the first thing the potential customer has in order to decide if they want to do business with you. If you're marketing your skills or knowledge, write a strong profile with references and even samples of your work. If you're selling a product or craft item, be sure to talk about your skill and how you learned the craft.
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.
