My understanding is that you have to subscribe/pay for the business version of Word Press in order to use any of the monetizing functions. I think you should clearly state this in this article at the beginning. I think there is a degree of bait and switch here if people are just signing up for the free subscription and then finding out they have to pay for a subscription to make money. I am ok with that, it just needs to be stated up front everywhere.
Well, with all the opportunities it provides, it turns out that everyone can do it. You don’t need any specific skills to get that extra cash. Nevertheless, people who are professionals in a certain area have one more door open for them, but there’s room for everyone. If you don’t feel confident in your skills, you can always take other gigs such as taking paid online surveys- everyone can do it.
Craigslist is a great place to exchange goods and services and, for the most part, it is usually done for money. However, a little known fact is that craigslist is also a great place to get freebies. Whether someone is getting rid of something because they no longer have room for it or they have to abruptly leave their home, city, or state; there are some rare gems that you can resell for a decent return. The key is to look for free stuff on Craigslist that is currently selling on Craigslist or elsewhere. Some items will be in great shape but if not, spruce it up and resell either on Craigslist, a flea market, or a garage sale.

My friend Holly Johnson made over $225,000 freelance writing last year. She truly is the best of the best and lucky for us, she’s written a course on exactly what it took to go from corporate America to full-time freelancer. Her course – Earn More Writing – shows you how to get jobs, how to earn more money as a freelance writer, how to improve your efficiency, and more! And it’s packed with bonuses including a 30-minute coaching session with Holly herself, an insider’s guide to what editors really want, a list of 250 businesses with blogs you could write for, a free Facebook group, and more! 

First and foremost, when it comes to marketing anything online, it's important to understand how money is made and earned. In my phone call with Sharpe, he identified several items that were well worth mentioning. Once you understand where the money comes from and how the industry works, you can then better understand how best to position yourself and your offer so that you can reap the benefits of the making-money-while-you-sleep industry.


E-mail list / Subscriber list / Opt-in list – This is your list of website viewers who have given you their e-mail address to be kept posted of A) any new posts to your website and B) receive any e-mail communications from you. For example: You can send out a weekly or monthly newsletter, send out any special or urgent news, or send out special offers for your products or your affiliate products.
Whether you are just starting out or a seasoned professional, there is something that you are good at! I am stating this as fact because even if it’s something you have never gotten credit for, chances are you have a skill that others may find valuable. Using this skill to make some extra income is possible thanks to platforms like SkillShare, Udemy and Teachable.com. Many top experts use this as a lucrative way to earn passive income but you don’t have to be a top expert to take advantage of this option.
I know you just have jumped in the online industry and starting out your own career can take time and you also understand that you need little experience before starting doing things on your own. So why don’t you become a virtual assistant for someone? You can earn money as well experience by doing it, so it can be a WIN-WIN too. VA’s can make up to $50 per hour for tasks depending upon there knowledge, education and skills.
And why would that surprise you? While I think it’s not merely your intention – this blog can come across as with some anti-woman sentiment, and I think some of your readers subconciously see it that way (hint: why have many of them not clicked on this article?). Most of your readers are young, immature, ignorant, and easily impressionable. I have noticed they are easily influenced by what you say. I am a young man, but not impressionable or immature, I can think for myself and critically.
Anyway don’t really expect anyone to respond to this after as many years as it’s been online but great job. I just repurposed my blog and not trying to focus on making money online which is something I have not done sense the days of AllAdAdvantage I will defiantly refer back to this article and will link to it soon, I’m doing this because I’ve been unemployed for almost a year now and almost out of money lol.
Now, if you don’t know people who might want your coaching services, there are a number of online tools and communities that make it incredibly easy to find clients and teach, on just about any topic area you can think of.

Creating space for banner ads on your website is another way to generate a revenue from adverts. However for this type of advertising you will need to contact businesses directly and ask them if they would like to advertise on your website. The upside is that you can charge a set amount, or even a recurring monthly fee, to business to promote their services on your site. Using a WordPress plugin like AdSanity is an effective way to manage this type of advertising.
Let’s go straight to the point. In today’s ‘how to make money online’ post, I will reveal the fastest way to make money online and work from home. Are you a stay at home Mom or Dad looking to make extra money? Are you simply frustrated by working 9 to 5 jobs and you’re looking for a way out? Do you want to start a new online business? Whatever your desire, you have come to the right place.
However, people can still do webinars without all of that. For example, you might have a sizable social media following and you train them every week on something to do with social media. But you will need a product to embed and sell at some point. Don't worry about it in the beginning. And by far, the best webinar platform out there is certainly GoToWebinar. Hands down, there isn't even another platform that comes close.
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.
Fiverr: Israeli-based Fivver was started in 2010 by Shal Wininger and Micha Kaufam. It's a great resource for selling just about any service online. You can offer gigs as low as $5 but also get paid much more for upgrades and add-ons. There are plenty of providers earning 6 figures on Fiverr so it's definitely a worthwhile cause for generating a healthy income. Just ensure that you provide some serious value. 
Boy, do I love when people cut out the BS and tell it like it is. Thanks Jon! I went into blogging last summer fairly naively, thinking because I was tenacious, a great writer, and a professional marketer that I could run laps around everybody else. Well like most, I’ve been humbled, frustrated, confused, frustrated, perplexed. I’ve tore things apart and put them back together. I’ve cursed aWeber and used four-letter words about WP, not because they were doing anything wrong, but because I couldn’t figure out code and how to make things work as a one woman band. Oh the joys. I’m not giving up. I have my nose to the keyboard and will attend your webinar. Thanks for the frankness.
Offering specific online SEO services is also another online freelancer role that businesses are crying out for. If you know how to improve a website’s SEO by doing keyword research, creating content that can rank in search engines, adding metadata / schema to posts and pages, and building backlinks to a domain, to name a few tasks, then this could be a great line of work for you.

As a freshman at Indiana Wesleyan University, Ryan started a small internet business from his dorm room to help pay his tuition . . . and by the age of 20, he was earning a 6-figure income and other online ventures – all while continuing to study full time. Needless to say, Ryan’s “side business” allowed him to graduate debt free – with a nice chunk of change left over.


You can sell your book on a site like Gumroad (this is the site I sell mine on) or even self-publish your eBook on Amazon. To advertise your book, share it on your social media pages, ask bloggers and websites if you can guest post on their site and include a link there, include your book on your own blog, ask readers to write reviews, and more. The beauty of a book is you could continue to make sales for years to come!
Since freelancing isn’t associated with a handful freelancing sites, it means you can be a freelancer without creating your profiles on those freelancing platforms. The purpose of those sites are to manage a profile as a portfolio, and if you choose the other way around, you could do it your way. However if you are going to start freelancing as your carrier then 15 Common Freelancing Mistakes Which are a ‘NO’ go for any Freelancer should be a must read for you. 

The Mythbusting is much appreciated. It’s a gold rush out there. WWW might stand for wild wild west. This article frames up the challenges and reminds us that it’s the reality on the ground that gets us up the mountain. A similar myth is the one about writers and riches. I found a good article by an old fantasy novelist and reworked it into a post you might enjoy. http://ow.ly/a6pn3
Starting a site like youtube isn’t difficult thing at all. There are ample of templates and scripts which are available on your market to get you started. All you need is a domain, good hosting, wordpress theme, script and some nice content to get started. One thing i like about this type of site is that the content is automatically uploaded and created by users and you earn money online from home while sleeping.
As you start regularly putting out content, you’ll hopefully start to build a bit of an audience. But to start seeing real money from YouTube you need to market your videos elsewhere. Share your channel on Twitter and Facebook. Distribute videos anywhere else you can think of. Also, interact with comments and build a community around the videos you’re making so people will share it with their friends.

You will make money You’ll probably become a six-figure earner in the next couple years Will you make the same amount I do maybe? Maybe not maybe you’ll surpass me in a very short amount of time but to tell people that they can just make money Without doing anything and that’s what a lot of these people do and mostly because most of them are full of shit And they’ve never actually made any money themselves and the reason they haven’t made any money themselves Is because they’ve never invested anything into making money But nobody tells them this I think I’ve covered enough in this video We’re over 11 minutes now and I know it’s a bit of a rant I didn’t really teach much I just kind of ranted and I just wanted to I just it just chaps my ass when I see people being deceived and and Lied to like this and then they’re getting those unreal expectations and expecting things to happen that Probably aren’t going to happen and the reason they aren’t going to happen is because they’re not being taught properly and they’re being given unreal expectations.


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.
If you have a knack for organization, you can make money online as a virtual assistant helping people to keep their days in order.

Julia K. is a 24 year-old accounting student from California. When she started my Earn1K course, she had a $8 an hour summer job drawing caricatures at a theme park. She enjoyed her work, but she wanted to earn more. “I wanted a buffer,” Julia explains. “A little security. My pinnacle of success... was actually just to make $1000 per month with a side gig.”
I want to talk about gurus, and what they don’t tell you about making money online. So we’re gonna get right into that right now.

Excellent article, with one glaring omission. In addition to having your readers like, subscribe, share, digg or stumble upon this article, you need to have a *PRINTABLE VERSION*. It’s so easy to do, and, trust me, readers like myself would really appreciate having a notebook full of neatly printed articles to refer to. Maybe a small thing to you, but it would be huge for the folks who need this material. Many thanks. fb

Dating sites and apps are extremely popular and have become more and more niche as the industry develops. They can also be very profitable, as there are many ways to monetize them. You can charge a joining fee, provide premium subscriptions, or make money from advertising on your site. White Label Dating provides a pre-built dating platform for your project. You simply choose the niche and branding for your new dating site. Once your website goes live, you just need to promote it, manage the users, and collect the earnings.

She tells me she's met someone on the site "who I'm sure will be a friend for what I hope will be a very long time." Likewise, PrincessKiss, who's 23, from the North, and enjoys "What most young women do, spending time with friends and family, shopping, clubbing, reading true crime and watching horror movies," tells me: "I have made a good few friends on here, they can tell me anything and I can tell them anything." She adds that's she is totally herself on the site – in part because she can be more open with her sexuality, which she couldn't be on other sites where her family and friends are watching.

Taking surveys online can be a great way to make some extra money while watching TV or just killing time. While I don’t personally think it’s possible to replace your full-time income with money you make from surveys, it’s very possible to make a few extra hundred bucks every couple of months. And since it can be done in your spare time or while watching television, why not?!


Anyone can start an online business that earns "six figures" according to internet marketing guru Kavit Haria. Just one website can pull in thousands of pounds every month, claims another, Sarah Staar. It's possible to live your life on your own terms, secure in the knowledge that your income from internet marketing will more than fund it, promises another internet marketer, Rob Cornish.
EnglishRose23 is one of the first women I speak to on the site, and my initial instinct is somewhat sceptical. Perhaps she's been cherry-picked for me by the site's administrators as someone they knew would give positive feedback on her experience. But as I talk to more and more women, a relatively consistent and clear picture emerges of how and why they're using the site.

That way you enjoy beautiful stories with 1/10 of the time commitment.
Install WordPress.  WordPress is king in the content management system arena.  Please don’t use Blogger.  If you have aspirations of taking your site to the big time, you will eventually want to switch to WordPress.  Liquidweb will often (if not always by request) help you with this part because it is super easy.  WordPress has one click installations now so you’re lucky.  Back in the day I was still fiddling with the FTP server in hopes that my files would transfer completely without a hitch.
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 !

When deciding on your niche, you have to actually start a blog or a website that's going to be your online hub. This is where your anchor content is going to live. Everything else will link to here. All the ads you run and traffic you drive through social media or SEO or anything else will all come here. You need a custom domain and a professional looking site if you want anyone to take you seriously.

No matter if you start a blog, do freelancing or small separate gigs, social media always plays a crucial role. If you are freelancer you can use it to brand yourself or your blog and if you are making the extra bucks through small tasks and apps, most of them offer incentives if you share them with your friends. There’s another upside- if you manage to grow and develop your social network, you can even begin to get paid from companies to advertise their business on your personal profiles.
No matter what method you end up using to generate an income on the web, you need to adjust your mindset to help empower you rather than discourage you. The truth? Making money online can be fraught with avoidable pitfalls. There's no shortage to the rah-rah cheers of internet marketers looking to find ways to ensure they part you from your hard-earned cash. The trick? Cancel the noise and get to the real meat and potatoes, so to speak.

I don’t think the reserves should be on the list as a side hustle because as a former active duty sailor and reservist I have been called back to full time active duty, so what you may think of as a side hustle may cause you to have to leave your family, your home and your job, and if you are in the lower ranks you may end up bankrupt because you have to leave a higher paying full time job when Uncle Sam comes calling. This should only be done if you really love the military or need to meet active duty contract obligations.
When you're selling information, you aren't really in the business of selling information. You're in the business of transforming lives (doesn't matter what your niche is, the end result is to inspire your client to act on your advice, even if you give advice on landscaping) - and charging high prices is one way of making sure that a higher percentage of people will benefit from your advice and value it more.
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!
Infographics are currently an extremely popular type of media. An infographic showing information or data in an interesting and fun way can help engage an audience and generate numerous likes and shares. As infographics take more time to create than just simply uploading an image, busy website owners are prepared to pay for custom infographics. And don’t worry, an infographic can be created using simple design software such a Canva. So extensive graphic design skills are not necessary, just a creative eye.
