Whether you're looking to make some fast cash, or you're after long-term, more sustainable income-producing results, there are certainly ways you can make money online today. The truth is that making money online isn't as difficult as most make it out to seem. It does require some discipline. Sure. Without discipline, you'll find it tough to make a buck both online or offline.
Best article I’ve read in a long time. I’m be traveling to Kiev on Monday so I’ll miss your webinar – but I’m sharing this with lots of folks who should listen in. Your point on technology is SO important. We learned way more than I ever thought we would on front-end, back-end and everything in between. There are so many people out there willing to build you a website – it’s important to know what you’re getting and what you own and that it’s original work. It’s amazing how many people don’t know how important these issues are. Thanks Jon for the inspiration this morning.
I have 3 VAs. I couldn’t function without them. It doesn’t matter how big or how small a business is, they all need help running their day-to-day administrative tasks. Virtual assistants perform a variety of tasks that a traditional assistant or secretary would normally do, including making travel arrangements, paying bills, or managing expense reimbursements. I use them to upload content, optimise images, brief writers etc.
“That blog has a number of income streams. I initially monetized it with AdSense and Amazon affiliate promotions, but after a couple of years added other income streams including using other ad networks, selling ads directly to advertisers, affiliate promotions of other people’s photography eBooks, courses, and software and then creating my own eBooks to sell.
If you want a bedtime story, get a subscription to a short story magazine (“Asimov” and “Analog” for Science fiction, “Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine” and “Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine” for nice murder mysteries/thrillers, “Cemetery Stories” for horror), and read short stories for when you want to relax your brain with some fiction. That way you enjoy beautiful stories with 1/10 of the time commitment.
My team and I have spent over 10 years refining our money-making systems so you can get results faster. It won’t happen overnight, and it will take work (never trust someone who promises instant results without work)… but you’ll have the exact roadmap so you can quickly join thousands of students who’ve used my systems to learn how to make more money, get more freedom, and more fun for the rest of their lives.
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.
If you offer freelance services or have a physical services business, then creating a blog is a must. On your blog you can write about the services you offer and how they will benefit your clients. Importantly you can add a ‘Services’ page, outlining the services you provide, what they include, and any other important information potential clients may need. This is an effective way to promote your services, generate leads, and increase your revenue.
Thank you for telling it how it actually is John, it’s refreshing to hear it that way and surprisingly motivating. I do believe that having enough of an income to support myself is more than enough compensation for escaping the ‘boss’ and having the freedom to provide value to your audience. Millions would be nice, but not essential for it to be worth it. I look forward to your webinar. 🙂
Most people who want to make money on the side pick generic services that have lots of competition — general writing, fitness training, and computer repair for instance — then wonder why nobody notices them or buys from them. Meanwhile, other businesses are super-specific and deeply understand their clients and their problems. And they never have to worry about competition or lowering their prices.
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.
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.
