The beautiful thing about a course is that you get about as much out of them as you put into them. If you want to do one course launch, make a few thousand bucks and walk away, you can do that. If you want to create multiple courses around a general topic and run an academy that you advertise through webinars, podcasts, blogs, and joint-ventures and build a lifestyle business from your home, you can do that too!  
If you’re a skilled worker in a specific niche, like marketing, design, or software development, there are specialty marketplaces that cater just to you. These are amazing places to make money online as you know that the people visiting them are looking specifically for the skills you have. Check out places like 99Designs or Dribbble for designers, Cloudpeeps for marketing and SEO professionals, and TopTal, Crew, or Gigster for high-level software developers. Once you've built up your development skills, you can begin building a brand for yourself as a higher-value consultant and start charging brands for larger projects like implementing an entire WordPress security overhaul or migrating a website from http to https.
Not only will this multiply the money you’re bringing in in a serious way, but it protects you against any sudden changes in the market or in your business. Remember that old saying about putting all your eggs in one basket? A few hours a week committed to just one or two of the following opportunities will put you in a much stronger position to be financially safe and independent.
This is a VERY high quality course with an Instructor who really cares about his students. I learned so much in such a short amount of time and loved that KC covered all bases throughout this course!! I will be giving this oh-so-simple system a go tomorrow and highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for an easy way to get in the affiliate game." – Jamie Briggs
Blogging is increasing in popularity, and there is great potential to make money if you start a blog. It should be noted that it takes time and hard work to make money through blogging, but if you truly enjoy what you are blogging about, it will be a fun process for you. Many people started their blogs as a hobby, only to find themselves making money from it.

–>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.
I also realized that there's many people that can't afford to work with me 1-on-1, but still want to receive value from me, get their questions answered and receive feedback and advice.  That's why I decided to create a Group Coaching Mastermind.  This has allowed me to take on a group of people and coach them every two weeks in a webinar session where they can ask me questions and receive feedback.  This was another way of leveraging myself while giving people something that they wanted and was valuable.
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.

So we create a website or blog, then write reviews related to the products. And attach your affiliate links there. When customers purchase the products via your link then you will get commissions. However it is not quite "reviewing" but more of "advertising", discussing pros and cons just like an introduction. We have not used the product yet, how can we review 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).
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.
Well, it’s your lucky day because I have some really awesome tips and strategies that will teach you to use Clickbank to make affiliate commission day and night. I’ve talked about top Clickbank products to promote in my previous blog post, so I won’t mention anything about products you should be promoting here, just some great tips to help you make money on Clickbank as fast as possible.

Can you refer me to some quality names of people who have an online presence who are well known at producing results in the make money online field? I don't know who these people are so I would have a difficult time finding these influencers in a particular niche to follow. Anything that would get me started would be appreciated in regards to influencers I can follow. Thanks
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. 

I see the great potential and endless possibilities in making money on line. I also saw the numerous youtube blogs stating how they can help you make thousands of dollars a day. However, the ones I read were a bunch of fluff. I really want to do the CB business but not sure how comfortable I feel about blogging but willing to try it. Do you have a course or a one-on-one you can help me get started.
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.

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.
Starting a podcast, like making a YouTube channel or blog, comes down to telling interesting stories and building an engaged audience. I’m probably sounding like a broken record by now, but you need a niche that you’re interested in and there’s already a demand for. Come up with a list of topics you’d like to talk about and then search iTunes charts, Google Trends and other podcast research sites like cast.market to see what’s currently out there and popular.
Now next, you’ll want to pick a WordPress theme from somewhere like ThemeForest, Elegant Themes or OptimizePress. This is the barebones design of your site, which you can then customize with your own branding, copy, and images. That being said, you don’t want to cheap out. It costs less than $100 to buy a theme that will make your website look professional (and you can upgrade to a completely custom design once you get the business going).

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?

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.
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. 

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.


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.
- To brief it to you without overwhelming you with information, what I do is source products from china in bulk (DIRT CHEAP) lets say I buy 200 units for the price of $1, and I send it to Amazon's fulfillment centers and I list those products for $15, I make a $10 Profit Per Unit I sell. I have a lot of days where I make $150 a day, I sometimes wake up in the morning with 50$ profit, etc. This is by far right now the best trend, I've searched a lot of different ways of making money, while most of them are bullshit, cash apps, etc. Affiliate Marketing works, but like I said before, you need traffic and that's rough to get for an average person.
The music industry might not be as strong as it was in the 80s, but there are still plenty of ways to make money online as a musician. Sites like SoundBetter let you sell your services as a songwriter, producer, or session musician to thousands of customers a month. While Musicbed, Music Vine, Marmoset, and SongFreedom are perfect for licensing your music to TV shows, movies, and web series.

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. 

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.
I will say that while coaching and consulting isn't passive by any means, it is one of the most rewarding and fulfilling things that I do.  While creating passive income streams is fun and the best use of your time, sometimes you lose that human connection and relationship with people.  I've found it to be very pleasurable and rewarding to work with someone on a personal level and help them achieve their goals.  You don't get that same level of joy and fulfillment through a video blog or a course, as you're sometimes disconnected from people.
With that being said it's pretty hard to get traffic quickly, but if you've heard of Amazon FBA you can sell products on there website and basically steal their traffic for your own benefit. This is my main source of income, its online and for the amount of effort I put in, it's pretty easy. (nothing is get rich quick, it does require work) but in terms of every way to make money online, this is probably the fastest and easiest to generate full time income in my opinion.
Then once you’ve got your domain name and hosting sorted out, it’s time to pick a CMS, or Content Management System, that will let you update pages, build your blog and integrate with all the other services you need. It’s hard to go wrong with WordPress—the CMS powering close to a quarter of the internet. Keep in mind that eventually as you start growing traffic to your blog, you'll be wise to invest in a managed WordPress hosting plan, where all of the settings are custom-tailored and optimized to work particularly well with WordPress-powered websites.

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.

Better yet, you can even upload your own book to one of the world’s largest book sellers: Amazon. With Amazon self-publishing, you set the price, retain the rights to your book, and get access to Amazon’s massive audience. For every sale, you keep 70% with Amazon taking the remainder as a fee. If you want to get started, check out Leslie Samuel's great guide to selling eBooks online or follow Tara Gentile on CreativeLive as she shows you how to use your existing body of work to write an eBook within the next week. Who knows, you might just write one of the best business books of this year!


Create a killer course experience: With your course validated and in the works, you need to figure out how people will take it. Most course creators choose to host their courses from their own websites. This way, they get all the value of bringing customers back to their site on a regular basis. I host my own courses from a subdomain on my own site so I can easily add more. The course experience is incredibly important as well. And after trying most of the solutions, I highly recommend Teachable—an online platform designed specifically for courses.
Don't take that as a green light to rush over to CB. Though you can still make money on Clickbank as I have demonstrated here today, it's not any easier than any other affiliate marketing setup. There's a lot of useless stuff on CB, and if you're not sure what to promote, it can be hard to find exactly what you want. Part of why I don't promote CB products anymore is because many of them are junk and I've never found a good one that's in a niche I'm interested in.
With online jobs, there are many opportunities to specialize in your own area of expertise. You don’t need to do boring work to earn a living. As compared to the job market, one can settle on a job they do not love just to make ends meet. On the internet however, there are varieties of jobs to work on. Therefore, you can choose an area that best suits you and become an expert at it.
If you need to “make money quickly” then I don’t recommend starting any kind of business. Making money in business rarely happens fast, especially for newbies. Also, it would be a shot in the dark to look for someone who will train you to run your business and only accept a “fee” after you start earning money. They’d rather just build the business themselves!
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.
28. Subscription – If you think of something valuable (newsletter, online magazine, etc.) that you can consistently offer on a certain basis (weekly, monthly, etc.), you may want to offer a subscription service. This could be a fee charged each time your product is sent out or on a monthly basis. Either way, this has to be something that your customers can only get by subscribing to your website.
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.    

If you’ve got a way with words and expertise in a niche, there are plenty of sites that will pay for articles and content you write. Think of the sites you read regularly. What can you contribute to them that would be interesting? Research your niche and then look for ways to pitch articles. Many sites will simply have a submission or contact link in the footer. To get started, check out my full guide to becoming a freelance writer on the side and then submit your articles to places like Listverse, TopTenz, A List Apart, International Living, FundsforWriters, and Textbroker.
Now, obviously the most common form of this is to work a 40 hour/week job in exchange for a good salary. The range high huge depending on your skill level and experience, so anywhere between $50,000-$250,000 a year is possible as a salaried programmer in the United States. (Please adjust for your local economy before calling me names in the comment section)
Seminar presentations  –  When I was 32 years old I was volunteering as a Dale Carnegie teaching assistant.  I had been dramatically helped by the basic Human Relations course and wanted to help others experience the same benefits.  But the program had become quite expensive and I wondered if there were other similar options at a lower price.  With a little research I discover a 10-module program called Adventures in Attitudes.  I became a “facilitator,” purchased their workbooks, and scheduled my first workshop.  The local Chamber of Commerce promoted the workshop to their mailing list and allowed me to use their beautiful facility for the 10 weeks at no cost.  I paid $69 each for the participant workbooks, charged $469 for the program and had 23 people sign up.  I had no list, no platform, and no audience of my own.  As you can see, that first workshop netted me $9200 and I repeated that process many times before I ever created any materials of my own.  We now have the new 48 Days to the Work You Love Seminar available for you to replicate exactly what I did.  
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).
I will continue to try warriorforum, youtube and other IM forums. never heard of skillshare so thanks. And when it comes to facebook how do you get past those annoying groups that simply spam away everyday. When searching for answers on facebook graph all day all I got was this. Is there an advanced type of search available for facebook somewhere like a software that dives deep into the website to get better search results for things like this? Is there a place that database quality groups to join? And what could I possibly do about the "closed group" situation going on everywhere?
Bula Miliana. You’re right, a lot of online income opportunities only work in some countries. Paid surveys etc. But I believe you can still access sites like Upwork and the like? If so, starting a service based business could be a good way to start an online business. I’m not sure what your skills are but if you have administration skills or know how to use WordPress, you could become a virtual assistant. The pay rates vary (but I think a beginner virtual assistant with good skills would earn at least $5/USD per hour and I know some VAs who earn over $25USD/hr when they are experienced and have a good client base).
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.
Thank you for your useful share above about the features and outlook of click bank and how we can make use of click bank in the future. I totally agree that there are many poor quality products on Clickbank. However, if we are serious about making money with CB, we can still get the opportunity by applying some useful tricks as what you mentioned in this writing. Thanks again!
If you know how to sell, you don’t need to set up your own servers to start a web hosting or domain business. Big domain and hosting companies like TuCows, GoDaddy and HostGator allow you to resell their services with your own branding. Think beyond the Internet to reach new potential customers through offline media such as newspapers and magazines. (I had actually started doing this at YesRack.com for a while.)

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.
Etsy is the most popular online marketplace for handmade goods and crafts. From bracelets to phone cases, rings, furniture, and more, Etsy is perfect for anyone who is creative and wants to sell their handmade creations. As long as you have the space, this can make for one of the best ways to make money online that can be started with a very limited investment. Consider these 5 steps to starting an Etsy store, from Handmadeology.
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.
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.
–>In the beginning, group programs can fail. What if you create a snazzy new program that you are all excited about, you pour time and resources into it, and only a handful of people sign up? Then you are stuck delivering a program to too few people for too little cash. It can feel soul destroying, especially when you are first starting out and you don’t have a cash safety net.  So many new coaches immediately want to build and deliver a great group program, but they forget to take into account how much goes into building, selling, and marketing these programs to make them worthwhile to run.  So while I LOVE them, don’t think that they are easy or fast – to do right, they take both time and effort.
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.
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.
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
Need more ideas on how to make money online? Another strategy is using webinars to market your product, service, or course. I’ve done webinars to promote my financial planning practice and to drum up interest in my online course for financial advisors. With a webinar, you’re basically offering a lot of tips and advice for free — usually in a live format. At the end though, you pitch your paid product or service with the goal of securing a few deals.

The more traffic you have, the more money you can make with ClickBank. In order to maximize your traffic, you should spend some time identifying commonly searched keywords that relate to the product you plan to sell. If you create articles and other content based on those keywords you can often get some traffic from search engines, especially if you target the less competitive long-tail keywords in your niche. 
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.
