Okay, so passive income is where it’s at. Clearly, it will allow you to scale things out and make far more money. But it doesn’t happen quickly. However, most people don’t have the upfront investments to get things off the ground when it comes to areas such as real estate, dividends from stocks or ATM and vending machines. For that reason, they need to turn to digital avenues for income generation.
Mechanical Turk: Amazon's Mechanical Turk is a resource for doing human-intelligence tasks, or as the site commonly refers to them, HITs. You get paid a very small fee for any given HIT and you'll need a good deal of volume to make a substantial amount of money. But it is a resource you can use in your spare time to generate a small income online. 
Another company that hires website testers is User Testing. Here you can earn $10/$15 per test. To become a tester – submit your email address and apply. Testers must take a sample test before receiving any assignments. This gig is open to US and International residents alike who can accept payments via PayPal. Each test takes about 15 – 20 minutes.
Once you are all set up, Live Ops has an excellent online training program that teaches you how to handle calls from customers. You will be taking calls for many different companies. When you start working, your phone will ring and a script will pop up on your screen. You simply read the script word for word and input customer information as you go along. If customers have questions, there is a section on your screen with FAQ’s and you are also logged into a virtual chat room should you need to ask for support from a supervisor.

Hi , I’m in desperate and argent need of help! Does anyone know a good website to make quick and easy money from?? I’m a full time student @ Truman C.C in IL ( I have a scholarship in mass communications that’s only covering this semester not next semester) I’m basically living off of the last of my tax returns. I rarely have any free time to get a part time job rn and I don’t have a car to get around like that just the train and bus is my only transportation. My family can’t send me money because they’re struggling themselves and I don’t wanna stress my mom out she’s already taking care of my 3 little siblings and she’s a single mom. I don’t wanna get kicked out from my apartment, I only have enough money left to pay next months rent ( I also have No hot water nor heat ) and I’m eating noodles everyday trying to get by 🙁 it’s really hard living out here in Chicago. If anyone can help me I would really appreciate it !
In his bid to find a source of income, he looked through the finance section in the yellow pages and found a man called Mike. He met this man based on the fact that he had the biggest ad in that section and asked to work with him for free; in return, Mike would teach and mentor him on the secrets of business and finance. Surprisingly, Mike agreed and this was one of many steps he took to the good life he wanted.
If you have experience with marketing, SEO, or a knack for getting people excited about the products and services you use on a regular basis, think about refining your skills and putting them to work making money online as a small business marketing consultant in your region—especially if you can become a local SEO expert and can help local clients rank higher in their search results.

I think you nailed it here. Excellent post. I’ve found that once you get the puzzle pieces somewhat worked out, you still waste a lot of time reinventing the wheel. I’ve made it my life’s goal to get better at re-using scripts, re-using pages, and to develop other more repeatable processes. That’s one of the biggest challenges I have today. Once that’s solved, then it’s time for more traffic generation and relationship-building! Thanks for the great post.
 iWriter – iWriter is an old site which pays up to $15 for each accepted post. That may seem small, but they aren’t as strict as many of the others above, they are also recognised by many sites and are well known and famous. The thing i like about them is that they also allow you to pick exactly what you write. You can write as many or as few articles as you want. They will also assign you a category of writers and people can self choose you for their writing needs.
That’s so awesome. I’ve been to hundreds of the sites you mention that sugarcoat everything to make it sound like you can get rich real quick but the fact of the matter is that it took months and sometimes years for those people to get to where they are at. I have several mentors in my life. One of which is you by the way, from who I learn great lessons from. I have associated myself with a business model offline that creates great amounts of wealth and changes lives and the people that I’m involved in all talk about the same thing that you mentioned. It’s all about your mindset and your work habit. Success takes alot of hard work no matter what you are trying to accomplish.
The next step? How will you communicate with people. Sharpe says that you need to decide on this early on. Will you blog? Will you use social media? Will you build a list by working with solo ad providers? Will you place paid advertisements? What will you do and how will you do it? What you must realize here is that you have to get really good at copy writing. The better you get at copy writing, the more success you'll find as an internet marketer.
It's almost like a book club. However, it's much more than that. It is what I believe will form the basis for your success. While we take this journey, we will have to hold each other accountable for the tasks that we will have to implement. I will check up on you, and hope you will do the same for me. 2 heads are better than one, and 5 heads are better than 2. So if you are willing to join me on this journey, let me know by leaving your feedback in the comments area of this post.
Brunson talks about this reverse engineering in his book called, Dot Com Secrets, a homage to the internet marketing industry, and quite possibly one of the best and most transparent books around in the field. Communication is what will bridge the divide between making no money and becoming a massive six or seven-figure earner. Be straight with people and learn to communicate effectively and understand every stage of the process and you'll prosper as an internet marketer.

The first thing it takes is a CHANGE in MINDSET! I know, you've heard it before, but it's the absolute truth. I'm not going to give you some sort of 5 step plan to online success. That almost makes it sound too easy. What I am going to do is provide you with resources. I'm doing it this way because I'm NOT trying to sell you some sort of dream. Actually, yes I am trying to sell you a dream. A dream that can only come through if you make the decision that it has to come through.
No matter what method you select for generating your online income, there's one very important thing to understand. Today, across this globe, with its 7+ billion inhabitants, there are two recurring things that people are looking for more of. Either people want more time or they want more money. The truth? Time is far more valuable than money. You can't recreate time. Once it's spent, it's gone forever. Not money.
Using Fiverr is a great way to pick up work. Once you have signed up you can advertise your services. Fiver allows you to create your own gigs, whether you are offering web design, digital marketing, writing, or something else. You can choose how much you want to charge (it can be more than a fiver) and people will then contact you if they are interested in working with you. Fiverr will not only help you get experience if you are just starting off as a freelancer, it will also help you earn some extra cash.

NaughtyJo is a 28-year-old mother of two — "I work a full-time job, so my only other hobby is my kids" — and as she puts it, "I do use other sites and some of the guys on there know me from [MyGirlFund]. I don't treat anyone differently or talk differently. Manners get you a long way. If you can't make a sale, making a friend has always been something I've tried to do."


Do you constantly come up with witty one-liners? Do you dream of the days of Mad Men-style advertising? If you’ve got some branding chops or just come up with imaginative copy, there are lots of opportunities to make money online through company naming and slogan contests. If you think you have a knack for names check out namingforce.com and squadhelp.com. If you dream of coming up with witty copy, try coming up with company slogans on Slogan Slingers and Get a Slogan.
Amazon offers a service called Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA), which can be extremely useful for arbitrage sellers, or others selling their own products. If you opt for FBA, Amazon will store, pick, pack and deliver your products. That means you can scale your arbitrage business quickly as you don’t have to store products in your own home or waste time with postage.
Martin Boeddeker is the founder of FindFocus.net, the One-Page Productivity Planner and the mind behind the FindFocus Distraction Blocker for Mac. He studied industrial engineering and management in Germany and worked for some of the biggest companies in the world. With FindFocus he wants to help people to get rid of what he calls DigitalADD so they focus on the things that truly matter in life.
For the most part, the 6-figure, 7-figure, and 8-figure-earners and up are making a large majority of their income by scaling out offers that they control. If you're just starting out, that avenue isn't for you. It only comes over time as you come to understand the field. As Sharpe says, most people first need to get a lay of the land and cruise through the virtual sales landscape before they dive into a massive undertaking like creating their own digital products and sales funnels.
The Truth? You don't often come across genuine individuals in this space. I could likely count on one hand who those genuine-minded marketers might be. Someone like Russel Brunson who's developed a career out of providing true value in the field and helping to educate the uneducated is one such name. However, while Brunson has built a colossal business, the story of David Sharpe and his journey to becoming an 8-figure earner really hits home for most people.

Once you can overcome the initial resistance to this, you can ultimately make money in whatever opportunity you step into. Whether that means it's a passive income opportunity such as by writing ebooks or audiobooks, or it means engaging in active income activities like promoting your own course or affiliate offer or conducting a live webinar. There is real power in the list.


can’t always judge a book by its cover. I try not to judge people too harshly, especially based on how they look. I’m surprised man. YOu’re a musical artist. I make 5 figures a year online and if I had a dime for every person who tried to judge me based on my appearance I would be at 6 already. There’s my dirty hoodie and my cheap whiteboard behind me. Can’t believe I wanted to interview you man. Would hate for you to have to slum it up with the likes of me and the rest of the dirty shirted cheap whiteboard having marketers. Peace. -Kam
Holy, moly, what a list! I’ve thought about pursuing a couple of these. Should really get on it. I’ve done a couple more of them. My sibling has been an extra in a couple of movies, but made no $ off of it. But we’re talking literally a stadium full of extras in one case….think Pittsburghers might have been too excited to be in a movie to ask for cash? Or maybe they just don’t pay crowds?
Thank you for writing this. I have been LURKING for years, never commenting, but enjoying and sharing the content. Everything you said is true, I have been writing, blogging, started a Youtube Channel (800 videos now), and Instagram. Funny thing if you share food, workout pictures and motivational stuff its crazy popular. Love the blog, believe more folks would be happier working for themselves if they can keep debt under control or expenses low. Energy levels super high now that I started green smoothies everyday and adding weights to my workouts.

That type of earth-shattering failure and pain really does a number on a person. Getting clean and overcoming those demons isn't as simple as people make it out to be. You need to have some serious deep-down reasons on why you must succeed at all costs. You have to be able to extricate yourself from the shackles of bad habits that have consumed you during your entire life. And that's precisely what Sharpe did.
You spoke to me, Jon. I’ve had my blog for seven months, and I’ve been trying to make it a business for about five. I’ve spent countless hours of time and very little money to build up a very strong audience both on the site and Facebook. I was a “digital marketer” before, but there are so many things I’ve had to become an expert in that I wasn’t before. I feel like I’m a completely different marketer now than when I started. And it hasn’t been very long.
A quick trawl through the testimonials on many internet marketers' websites suggested a bizarre phenomenon. Some of the students who attend courses on how to get rich online then start selling courses - on how to get rich online. Meanwhile, some of the material sold by some internet marketing coaches is what is known as private label rights - recycled content written by another author and then packaged up and resold. 

I actually just wrote my own blog post about this very idea. People think SEO is free, and while it’s true that you don’t have to invest in any software if you don’t want to (there are plenty of free tools available), you have to remember how many hours it takes to create a successful SEO campaign. Just optimizing your site can take several weeks. Link building could easily be 15-20 hours a month, a few hours a week is devoted to just straight writing (never mind promoting your content). You have to manage all your social profiles, build relationships with other bloggers and so forth. There are a lot of tasks that take up a lot of time each day and time = money!
So we have to ask, why are these women really using the site? The money's important — and they do make quite a bit. It's hard to pin down average figures because people work different hours on the site, but one user has said she made up to $55,000 in a year. NaughtyJo even tells me someone bought her a new phone after she broke her last one. And men are paying these sums for friendship at least as much as they are titillation: perhaps more so.
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.

Internet Marketing is bubbling, and while there’s plenty of opportunities still, I’d recommend using the Internet Marketing skills to build a QUALITY business. Instead of just affiliate marketing for hiking food, arrange to have different hiking food products private labeled, dropped shipped to one manufacturer where they are packaged into a ‘days package’ and dropshipped to your customers under your own brand. The four hour work week is about being a ‘deal maker’ and doing the ‘uncomfortable things’ others won’t. People go hiking all the time, once the IM bubble has popped people will still be coming to your company’s website to order a ’10 day supply’ of hiking food for their next trip. Damn, now my brain is on overdrive, paleo hiking food anyone? Still looking out for that myself, getting tired of drying steak in my oven. Being a trend watcher and a deal maker is where the money is.
Do you have a voice that Simon Cowell would pay a compliment to? Are you a talented graphic designer that can take any concept and bring it to life? Are you an artist who can give Michelangelo a run for his money? If so, sites like Task Rabbit and Thumbtack are great platforms to sell your skills. These aren’t only limited to those with creative skills; you can sell editing services, research services, typesetting, and the list goes on.
The absolute first and most important thing you need to understand before you can really generate any semblance of cash ion the internet is to define your personal brand. To some people, this is the most deathly feared thing that they could possibly do. It means putting yourself out there. Being subject to criticism and comments and that and then some is part and parcel of this process.
I’m happy to share some of the systems I spent over a million dollars developing so you can make more money — and slash your workload, save months or years of frustration, and skyrocket your success — much faster than you’d imagine. For FREE. Why? I give away 98% of my material, and I know that by helping you achieve Big Wins and making my free material better than anyone else’s paid products, you’ll join thousands of other readers who’ve gained so much that they became students for life.
Paypal – Paypal is one way for you to accept payment for your website, goods and services. It's very easy to set up. FYI – You can donate some of your hard earned money to me for producing this helpful and free guide for you. Paypal accepts all major credit cards, to make a donation you do not even need a Paypal account. But you will likely need to open a Paypal account to receive payments.
The first thing it takes is a CHANGE in MINDSET! I know, you've heard it before, but it's the absolute truth. I'm not going to give you some sort of 5 step plan to online success. That almost makes it sound too easy. What I am going to do is provide you with resources. I'm doing it this way because I'm NOT trying to sell you some sort of dream. Actually, yes I am trying to sell you a dream. A dream that can only come through if you make the decision that it has to come through.
As with any other job, working from home and online takes a lot of effort. Whatever you decide doing, you should be patient and commit to it to start earning. No job, whether online or not, will start you off making a huge amount of money. So have in mind that everything comes with time and online earning isn’t an immediate trick to becoming a millionaire.
White labeling products involves purchasing pre-made products from a supplier and then adding your own labeling and branding. Products could range from candles to gym equipment or even tea, but all will come without labels, allowing you to create your own new range of merchandise. Most suppliers will advertise the fact they offer white labeled goods on their websites, so pick your niche and then find the right supplier and product for you. Once labeled, products can be sold via sites like eBay and Amazon, or from your own eCommerce store (discussed in a moment).

Etsy: While Etsy's popularity has declined recently, it's still a great resource for selling handmade items online. No need for complex ecommerce sites or merchant accounts or any sort of automation. The company takes a commission of every sale and charges a small listing fee per item. But many still use Etsy as their primary source of income. The best part is that you can also sell digital products on here such as poster designs. 
My next self-funded business hit $160,000 in revenue in its first year alone. After that first taste of self-made success, I’ve gone on to sign consulting contracts worth tens of thousands of dollars with startups like LinkedIn and Google, launch profitable online courses, and build a following of hundreds of thousands for this blog and my podcast series.
Do you have a DSL-R and like to capture photos? or if you are good with photo taking, a simple mobile camera can also do the job. Sometimes the most usual or unusual photos taken , road signs, mountains, walls or any interesting thing you like. If you have a large collection of high quality photo’s lying around, why don’t you sell them and make money online?

If you have a knack for organization, you can make money online as a virtual assistant helping people to keep their days in order. A virtual assistant will do everyinthing from bookkeeping to research, database entry, booking travel, and managing email. It can also be an awesome way to rub shoulders with some very important people, build up your professional network, and of course grow another stream of income. You can find great gigs on UpWork, Fiverr, Indeed, and Remote.co.
Multi-vendor marketplaces, like ThemeForest, can be very successful. Chose a niche and create a vendor website for it. Your marketplace could be anything, from a platform for local artists to sell their work on, to an online digital product store. Once set up, invite people in that industry to sell their products on your site. You take a percentage of their profits when items sell.
Add a few plugins.  WordPress is king in this area which is why I advocate starting out with them.  There are plugins out there for pretty much anything you can think of website related but starting out you may just need WordPress Jetpack.  As you blog more and network with other bloggers, then you’ll realize what they use and go through a trial and error period to see what works for you.

Today, thanks to technologies like smartphones, social media and the internet, there’s no shortage of people attempting to cheerlead their offers at every bend and turn. While the web has given us virtually boundless ways of improving our lives, it’s also delivered some unsavory characters who are more interested in extracting dollars from us rather than helping us to make them.

The overwhelming impression that comes across is that the success of this site is just a sign of the times. As SunsetStarLola puts it, "Personally I think the stigma attached to speaking to strangers on the internet has come a long way. Initially it was deemed as totally unsafe and all 'weirdos' but that's totally turned around. I believe people feel more at ease exploring their sexual fantasies with strangers, especially if it's one they don't necessarily deem the norm."
A niche affiliate site often presents like an eCommerce store. To get started with an affiliate site, choose your niche then display products with pictures, descriptions, and prices, just as you would on an online store. However, when visitors click the ‘buy’ button, they will be taken directly to Amazon, to make the purchase. You then make an affiliate fee for sending the traffic to Amazon, but have none of the packaging hassle, or initial financial output creating or buying the products.

Once people buy into your program you'll tell them what it ACTUALLY takes to "make money online". This usually requires A LOT of work and resources. It can be done using funnels and all these stuff but it's not easy and not what people were promised in their marketing. This is the reason why a lot of people think these gurus are full of s**t. And of course, this requires their customers to walk the same ethical line they are walking. And even more important: This requires the commitment to really HELP people. The gurus 100% believe that what they teach works and is good for people.
Jon, I just found your website, and am so grateful I did! I’ve had a blog for over 3 years now, but am just taking it to the next level. I’m floored by how much there is to learn. I think your analogy of the puzzle is spot on. There are so many pieces to put together. I agree that to succeed, that it’s all about marketing. I’ve seen this time and time again, whether it be with books, shows, movies. Yes, the content and quality have to be there, but if there’s no quality and intelligent marketing behind it, it will flop. There are brilliant ideas, books never published or made bestsellers, all because they lacked the right marketing tools.
I know the feeling Chaz. If there is one thing all successful Freebie Traders have in common, it’s that we all spent a bunch of time learning the system, lol. Hey, we all can do better at what we are currently doing and that’s the reason for what we will be doing. As long as we are all learning and improving, that’s what counts. Glad to have you on board.
Holy, moly, what a list! I’ve thought about pursuing a couple of these. Should really get on it. I’ve done a couple more of them. My sibling has been an extra in a couple of movies, but made no $ off of it. But we’re talking literally a stadium full of extras in one case….think Pittsburghers might have been too excited to be in a movie to ask for cash? Or maybe they just don’t pay crowds?
Making money online will take work and dedication.  This series is not meant to be a get rich quick scheme on how to make money online.  You will often do just as much if not more work as your day job.  The difference is that you will love what you’re because it’s something that allows you to control your time while doing something you love or are at the very least skilled or interested in doing.
If you are a budding photographer and would like to be paid for your craft then you should consider setting up your own photography website. This is a great way to not only promote your services as a photographer, but also to sell your images. You can charge visitors a fee to download your images. Or, if you’d rather, turn your site into a paid membership site, with free downloads of all images for paying subscribers.
You’re here because you want to learn how to make money online.  And, you’re not alone.  Most people do and we all have different reasons for doing so.  If you’re like me, then you want to spend more time with family and avoid the hustle and bustle of a daily commute.  For others, making money online means owning their time and not having to answer to anyone else.
Thanks for your honesty and quite frankly it makes me want to start a new business right now. I’ve spent way too much money on all these shiny objects and I’m tired of it. I’ve actually tried to follow through with some of these get rich quick resources but end up at a cross roads because I’m not comfortable in doing some of the things they want me to do.

Amazon offers a service called Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA), which can be extremely useful for arbitrage sellers, or others selling their own products. If you opt for FBA, Amazon will store, pick, pack and deliver your products. That means you can scale your arbitrage business quickly as you don’t have to store products in your own home or waste time with postage.
Now, I know what you’re thinking. Most of the software and apps you use on a regular basis are made by massive companies or established development studios. Well, yes. But many successful apps, particularly those in the Apple and Google stores, are created and marketed by individuals and small businesses. In fact, independent developers made $20 billion in the App Store in 2016 alone.
If you’re willing to take on some risk and have the heart of a true hustler, you can make extra money online doing commission-only sales for startups and other businesses. While you won’t be getting a regular salary, with the right sales strategies and skills as an inside sales rep, you can make decent money for each sale you bring in. And because you’ll most likely be working with startups, if you can negotiate a little equity you could profit big time if you're pitching a solid product and the startup succeeds.
For the most part, the 6-figure, 7-figure, and 8-figure-earners and up are making a large majority of their income by scaling out offers that they control. If you're just starting out, that avenue isn't for you. It only comes over time as you come to understand the field. As Sharpe says, most people first need to get a lay of the land and cruise through the virtual sales landscape before they dive into a massive undertaking like creating their own digital products and sales funnels.
Babysitting may seem like an obvious place to start when wanting to make some extra money and you may be thinking that you are not cut out to babysit, but here’s the twist. Look for moms and dads who are busy professionals who have small children under five. They will most likely tell you that they don’t remember the last time they were able to enjoy a quiet night out. Offering your services to this niche population will not only be a lucrative undertaking, but an easy job to do as well because chances are you will be simply house-sitting as the children sleep. If you have extensive experience in child care, consider signing up for sites like Care.com where you can set your schedule of availability.
Build up a following on your Instagram account and you could quickly be making extra money online. Major brands, gear companies, and even startups are willing to shell out $500-$5,000+ per post to get in front of your audience. While it’s getting harder and harder to build a massive Instagram audience, if you already have a solid niche and are posting quality content regularly, with a few small tweaks you can make yourself an influencer. Check out this awesome article from Shopify on how to build and grow your Instagram following to get started.
“I always point people to the article ‘1,000 True Fans’ by Kevin Kelly. If you choose your thousand ideal customers or readers properly and find the single author blog that targets that audience, you never have to do any more marketing. You’re done. That is a lesson that very few product developers and marketers have learned, and it’s unfortunate.”
The women, Maitresse Madeline and Mistress Lorelei Lee, made names for themselves as actresses in adult films, but they also indulge in the sexual art of “financial domination,” or “fin dom,” a craft that sounds like a cross between S&M and a big-store con (albeit, with extremely compliant marks, dubbed “pay pigs”). It fills their bank accounts while satisfying the carnal needs of guys who get off on giving money to demanding women.
Do you constantly come up with witty one-liners? Do you dream of the days of Mad Men-style advertising? If you’ve got some branding chops or just come up with imaginative copy, there are lots of opportunities to make money online through company naming and slogan contests. If you think you have a knack for names check out namingforce.com and squadhelp.com. If you dream of coming up with witty copy, try coming up with company slogans on Slogan Slingers and Get a Slogan.
Choose your niche and check for demand: The golden course combination is when you can find an in-demand niche that aligns with your skills and unique experiences. A great way to do this is to use Google Trends and Google’s Keyword Planner to look for average monthly search volume for keywords related to your proposed course content. Are people actively looking for high-quality information about this subject? Of course, if you’re already creating content for a blog, coaching service, or a site like Medium, you can test demand this way for free just like Bryan did.

Before Sharpe ever came into close proximity with the internet marketing field, he was a construction worker. Needing a way to make ends meet, like millions of other people around the world, he turned to a field that could hopefully pay the bills. But try as he might, he was never able to actually get ahead. Until one day, when Sharpe discovered the amount of money being made online by internet marketers, his entire mindset changed.
So we have to ask, why are these women really using the site? The money's important — and they do make quite a bit. It's hard to pin down average figures because people work different hours on the site, but one user has said she made up to $55,000 in a year. NaughtyJo even tells me someone bought her a new phone after she broke her last one. And men are paying these sums for friendship at least as much as they are titillation: perhaps more so.

Jon, I just found your website, and am so grateful I did! I’ve had a blog for over 3 years now, but am just taking it to the next level. I’m floored by how much there is to learn. I think your analogy of the puzzle is spot on. There are so many pieces to put together. I agree that to succeed, that it’s all about marketing. I’ve seen this time and time again, whether it be with books, shows, movies.

“Great list! I especially like the tutoring stuff. I’m good at Math that’s why I tutored once for my godparent’s 8th grader. I had fun with the her and her mum cooks the most delicious brownies. I don’t think I can donate a plasma or be a human guinea pig. But maybe you should add herb and vegetable planting. This job doesn’t require too many technicalities and is so far the easiest thing to do. There’s a method called square foot gardening for those who don’t have big spaces. It’s so simple to do and gardening in small boxes requires small maintenance. There is plenty of information on the web about how to do so. Once you get growing you can even sell your fresh produce to your neighbours at a cheaper price, and earn some fast money in the process . P.S. I also would want to partake in an online survey. Some people recommended Cash Crate but I’m also curious about what happened to you?
