Once you’ve gathered a list, put together a template outreach email (as you’ll be doing this over and over) that’s short and clear with expectations. Tell your potential interviewee who you are, what your podcast is about, and what you’re asking of them. Do a few test interviews with friends and family to make sure everything is being recorded at the quality you want and then book your first episode.
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.
I used to have fun doing surveys while I watched TV. I was choosy about the companies I used and I never paid to sign up for any. I got about $25 in free BlockBuster movie coupons, cashed out about $25 from another site and did an in house project trial where a company sent me to full size body lotions to use and record information about. I had fun, felt like my input was improving the business world, but I wasn’t looking to get rich quick, just earn a little bit in time that typically wasted. Some survey companies pay very little, others pay better. Of course, it is not fair to the businesses conducting the research to lie in order to qualify for a survey and they certainly deserve honest and thoughtful answers to their questions. The companies I worked with told me how much the survey would pay and how long it would it would take. Research for the reputable companies.

When you visit a website and there’s a product being offered there, it’s more often than not an affiliate product being marketed to you. How affiliate marketing works is Big Brand A approaches a website or the blogger/website owner may go through sites like CJ.com to sell a specific product. That product is then offered on a website for sale with the compensation for doing so varying between brands.
However, if you're like the hundreds of millions of other individuals that are looking to become the next David Sharpe, there are some steps that you need to take. In my call with this renowned online marketer, I dove deep the a conversation that was submerged in the field of internet marketing, and worked to really understand what it takes to be top earner. We're not just talking about making a few hundred or thousand dollars to squeak by here; we're talking about building an automated cash machine. It's not easy by any means.
I first discovered Sharpe years ago online. His story was one of the most sincere and intriguing tales that any one individual could convey. It was real. It was heartfelt. It was passionate. And it was a story of rockbottom failure. It encompassed a journey that mentally, emotionally and spiritually crippled him in the early years of his life. As someone who left home at the age of 14, had a child at 16, became addicted to heroin at 20 and clean four long years later, the cards were definitely stacked up against him.
The next woman I speak to is Lenonie, a 43-year-old "happily divorced" woman from the South East: "Some of the guys just like to express themselves in ways they wouldn't feel comfortable doing in real life," she says. "It's nice to reassure them that it's OK to have fantasies, fetishes, etc. For some of the guys it's all they have. They like a lady to confide in, share things with, and become a friend, so yes, friendships are formed and it's nice to have regulars that I feel I know very well."
Great post on a subject that is so right on the money about the fallacies of starting an online business and nailing the how to steps it really takes. Well done, as always. I’m someone who absolutely falls into the category of knowing a lot of the tidbits of information out there on how to do put together an online business but has stuggled with the roadmap of proper steps to put it all together and make it work for me.
Although these methods are widely known and famous where all you need to do is just fill out the survey forms or email submits for different companies for quick bucks, but personally I never liked this way of earning money because this is not a stable and permanent income method, I feel like what advertiser’s get in return for paying you? bunch of crap data.. However there are few organisations who look for real data and they may pay you good.
Then I connected with Princess Meggerz. Giving her age as “late 20s,” she lives in Brooklyn, seems forthcoming and down to earth, doesn’t take herself too seriously, and rakes in over $200,000 a year -- all of which she claims on her taxes. Her haul comes via cash and gifts from men who are happy to grovel online, fulfill Amazon wish lists, and send money via Western Union, all without meeting her IRL. They usually find the Princess through her website, meggerz.com, which commands, “Pay to obey.”
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.
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.
Have you ever written about earning cash through ebates.com? I love to spread the word, especially around the holidays before people make their holiday purchases online. For joining ebates you get a gift card (after you make your first online purchase through one of their links – super easy). Then you can use their coupons and get to your shopping sites through their links to earn cash back. If you refer people to their site you also get referral fees. Right now, if you refer 3 people you get $75.00. Bloggers tend to be able to get lots of referrals, so you can really rack up your referral bonuses! :) Check it out through my website link!
Travel blogging is a hard industry to break into. However, the rewards can be worth it, and let’s face it, who doesn’t want to be paid for traveling around the world! There are numerous ways to monetize a travel blog, but affiliate marketing should predominantly be your focus. On your blog, promote hotels, tours, equipment hire services, flights, and anything else travel related. Then take a cut of the proceeds as your audience books their holidays based on your recommendations.
So for all these women – whatever their age and life situation, the site's in part a way to make money, but it's simultaneously acting as a kind of social network. "I didn't expect to unearth people so comfortingly similar to me on here, but it happens more often than not," says LondonBunny. "I use MyGirlFund as its a great way to just relax and get to know people, away from the real world so to speak. I can vent, chill and also be there for others who are in need of someone to talk to. Not only that, I feel appreciated," says EnglishRose23.
