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.
I am not a copywriter. I didn't make this site so that I could sell you something. You will find no polished sales pitch here whatsoever. I just speak what's on my mind, and I intend to tell you nothing but pure facts about me, my business, and my strateiges. I am not the authority on how to make money online, but it's been a while since my online business crossed the $1 million mark (net revenue), and I do hope at least some of you will appreciate my ideas.

So be wary. Ensure that you learn from the pros and don't get sucked into every offer that you see. Follow the reputable people online. It's easy to distinguish those that fill you with hype and those that are actually out there for your benefit. Look to add value along the way and you'll succeed. You might find it frustrating at the outset. Everyone does. But massive amounts of income await those that stick it out and see things through.
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.

#4. You are in full control of your online business and your life. When you trade stocks online, it gives you a greater degree of freedom and control. You call the shots. You work when and where you want to. You can basically do whatever you want. Even if your account is closed down by a broker, which is rare, you can quickly open another account and trade again. Compare that to data entry, customer service, online tutoring, online surveys and even freelance writing in which you will clearly face some restrictions on where and when you must work. In addition, you can lose that data entry or customer service job in seconds!
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.
You can't expect to make any money if you just throw in that towel and call it quits right when the going gets tough. Even if you fail or you experience some setbacks, look at them as stepping stones, not road blocks. Everyone fails while trying to achieve their goals. Everyone. But, as long as you continually seek to improve, you'll make it there. It just might not happen as quickly as you had hoped.
I fell for the hype a few times before. I got into High Yield Investment Projects in the past. I was excited because I could earn anywhere between 40 and 90% return in just one month. It was an awesome dream and I bought into it – so much so that I took half of my wedding money and invested it into that “sure thing”. Needless to say, I did not spend as much on my wedding as I thought I would.

As per paidsurveyupdate.com research, You’ll typically earn $0.50 to $5.00 per survey, and earnings can quickly add up to$300 a month or more if you take a lot of surveys. Earning money takes time and effort, but how much effort is up to you. If you can commit to doing a few surveys a day, you should be able to earn at least $100 a month. Please make sure that the amount varies depending upon your skill, expertise and area you live in.


Next, you need to set up and build your YouTube channel. Your YouTube channel is your homebase for all your content. If you already have a Google account for Gmail or Google Drive, then you can use that to log-in to YouTube and start setting up your channel. Pick a username that works for you and is memorable (if you’re using an existing Google account you’ll have to edit your username in Google+).
It doesn’t pay much, but if you’re a healthy person and want to make a bit of extra money online, the AchieveMint app will reward you for doing things like walking, tracking your food, or taking health surveys. AchieveMint works by connecting to fitness apps you might already be using like Fitbit, RunKeeper, Healthkit, and MyFitnessPal and then giving you points for certain actions. For every 10,000 points, you earn $10 with no limit on your earnings.
No matter what size your business is, online marketing is kind of a big deal. In fact, the Content Marketing Institute has reported 93% of B2B marketers are currently using content marketing. While that’s welcome news for online marketers, it’s still a relatively new field that isn’t fully understood by all marketers. In fact, in 2013, only half of marketers were confident in their digital ability. And in 2014, only 35% of marketers were using and tracking their content marketing efforts.

Hi Nabila, Lots of Affiliates are based in the US and only pay in US dollars. But no one seems to care as long as you push products. I have a small Amazon US webstore which brings in a very modest trickle of income and Amazon US happily sends checks to a UK address for me even though I live in Australia now. Other companies may pay you by bank transfer, HSBC is a great bank for the mobile Internet Marketer.
I think you need to update this post. Some websites are defunct, ShareMagnet sounds cool, I’ll check out the Gig Walk, but some seem iffy-especially if they don’t recognize my zip code? I think you should double check. I do use Swagbucks. Gazelle does NOT accept devices after a certain age or a certain “level” so sometimes, unless you are selling your 6 month old computer, ain’t worth it.
For the most part, everything is online and I don’t need to meet any of these men. That’s the way I like it. But there was one guy, who’d randomly send me $1,000 a month, and I actually got together with him. He lived in London and got sent to New York for six weeks. We met and he fucking fell in love with me. I stayed with him in his apartment in Chelsea. He paid when we went out to do things. We slept in the same bed and I made out with him when I was drunk, but it was clear that we were not going to have sex. He didn’t give me cash in New York, but as soon as he got back to London, he completely wiped out my Amazon wish list, which had like $6,000 worth of stuff on it. He bought me everything.
If I have a blog that is getting 100,000 page views a month that means that I’m probably getting at least 50,000 people to the site (most blogs will do between 1.2 to 1.4 pages per session). That means I have to try and get some small percentage of those people to buy something from me if I really want to do well. If I can’t get them to buy something then (in some cases) I have ads running on the site that will make me money anyways.
So, making money on the internet isn't just a pipe dream. You can do it. But, there is a path forward. It's not the one of least resistance. But, it does offer a gateway to online wealth. Yes, it's achievable. But, it won't be easy. After over a decade of marketing on the internet, looking back, I can tell you that there are three particular things you need to be doing if you seriously want to make money on the internet.

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.


Great article. When I decided to go into online marketing I went into it with open eyes. I had great expectations and dollar signs in my eyes. I was going to be a millionaire in two years. Then reality set in. But I love this business and I’ll keep plugging away. I may never get “rich” but I love what I’m doing and always learning something new and that to me is what rich is all about.

So when I responded, I flipped it around as if I was clueless as to what to ask for (which I was) and said “Hmmm… I haven’t given it much thought. What did you have in mind?” I was preparing for her to strong arm me into saying a number. However, she was nice and gave me a figure; $35,000. My response (as if Ramit was talking to me in the other ear): “I think we’re in the right ballpark and we can work from that number.”
Online selling is a process of selling goods and services online. When it comes to selling services, people most look at the freelancing services to create their provide and start offering their services. The problem is that it should be not labeled to the certain type of online money making method. Online selling could be anywhere, and hence, it could be anything someone wants to sell and buyers approach them to buy it.
So the search for answers started and eventually it led me to Dan Lok’s High Ticket Closing program. At first, I was very skeptical as I could not believe how a 7 weeks course will be able to teach me how to make money in such a short time. In addition, I did not have any sales background. Though I was scared to get scam, I was even more afraid of losing the love of my life. All I can say is that I am happy I pursued the program because it allowed me to acquire a high income skill that I can now utilize to work from anywhere and still make money.
Upwork: This website offers a great marketplace for selling just about any professional service. You don't need a merchant account, website of your own or anything else for that matter. All you need to do is be able to provide a high-quality service at a reasonable price. But be informed, you will have to compete with many others that are constantly bidding on open jobs. 
In 2016 I bought my last high ticket item after attending a webinar. It was an evergreen webinar which was disguised as a live webinar. I was frustrated and offended once I found out. I' don't even remember the content of the webinar. It was a joined venture webinar of three TIER 1 gurus. Yet I still bought into the $997 offer at the end from one of the TIER1 gurus. They were using all these sales tactics on me and they worked. 

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.
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.
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.
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.”
There are many freelance options for graphic designers who are looking to make money online. Designing layouts and graphics for promotional material, corporate reports, magazines or book covers, are all tasks that businesses are looking for online freelancers to complete. Due to its flexible nature, graphic design possibilities can range from one-off projects, to ongoing work with regular clients.
I thought I was the only chick that read this. Funny I told a friend about his blog. He read some articles and was hyped up at first but after a few days, he lost motivation and went on about how much of a dick you seemed to be. I saw that as an excuse and din’t bother with him anymore. I choose not to hang out with people that do not have the same mindset as I do. I’m building my brand and company, and you can either come along with me or move!!!

There are 3 main types of affiliates, and of course many fall into all of these categories: Organic, Paid and E-mail. The common denominator is that affiliates send traffic to the merchant and get a cut for all successful sales or leads (depending on the agreement). There are also incentive affiliates (see the people who own the GPT/survey sites lower in the hierarchy).

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.

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.
More and more companies and startups especially are embracing remote work—where you use online collaboration and communication tools to do your work from wherever you want. And you don’t have to be a 20-something hotshot designer or coder to reap the benefits of working remotely. Many remote positions are for customer support positions or other customer-facing positions that don’t require specialized skill sets.

If you have a fondness and talent for taking pictures you can make extra money online by becoming a stock photographer and selling your images to a stock photo company like ShutterStock or iStockPhoto. You’ll get royalties every time someone licenses an image you’ve submitted. To really be successful, build your own photography website to be able to showcase your portfolio and start getting higher-paid private corporate work.
I wound up earning 30 grand from him that year. Now I have a guy sending me a mandatory $3,000 per month, but I usually end up with more. I’m on his payroll, and the money gets direct-deposited into my bank account. Last year he paid for a girlfriend and I to fly business-class to Greece. When we landed, his driver picked us up and handed us our island-hopping itinerary. Hotels and meals and everything were all paid for. The last week of the trip, I met a hot young Greek guy and bragged about him online. [The client] was jealous, but being jealous turns him on. Just hearing about me being with the Greek guy is enough of a reward for him.
You may think I’m talking about the FBI, but I am actually talking about the Field Agent app. You simply sign up for an account and do small tasks around town for different clients. Your task can range from checking prices at the local supermarket to conducting surveys. You get paid based on the assignment and you get to choose which you want to participate in.

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. Community driven platforms like Savvy.is, Clarity.fm, and Coach.me provide you with a network of potential clients to interact with, as well an integrated payment solution.
If you have experience as a personal assistant, secretary, admin assistant, or something in a similar field, then becoming an online PA may be a great role for you. Many professionals want someone to help organize their business and personal affairs. Jobs could include sending emails, managing financial affairs, booking flights and arranging day to day activities. If you are interested in this line of work there are many PA agencies that are crying out for reliable assistants. 

There are free websites available but they do not look professional and I highly advise against them. Free websites and blogs can be built at blogger.com or wordpress.com but they will always have blogger, blogspot, or WordPress in the title. For example, if I had started BOLD & DETERMINED on a free platform the domain name would be boldanddetermined.wordpress.com and I would never, ever be able to change that until I purchased a real domain name. If your goal is to make a professional money making website you must purchase your own domain name(s).

So when I responded, I flipped it around as if I was clueless as to what to ask for (which I was) and said “Hmmm… I haven’t given it much thought. What did you have in mind?” I was preparing for her to strong arm me into saying a number. However, she was nice and gave me a figure; $35,000. My response (as if Ramit was talking to me in the other ear): “I think we’re in the right ballpark and we can work from that number.”
What he says is echoed by the women with whom I speak: "[The strict rules] are in place to protect us and our identities and they are strict in making sure these rules are followed so I have never felt unsafe," SunsetStarLola says. "I think sites like this stop a lot of men actually going out and cheating, and I've met some men who are disabled and unable to have a sexual relationship — and I've met men whose wives are sick or whatever and they can't have a sexual relationship either, so this is their outlet. There is no harm in it if the guys remember to not let cyberspace take over reality too much."
I really like point #1. So many people I talk to are excited about their idea because nobody is doing it or else they don’t want to do something because someone already is. I’m a believer that no competition is a worse sign than a lot of competition. If you were mining for gold back in the day, would you rather be near San Francisco where everyone was finding gold, or would you rather be in New Mexico with no competition (assuming nobody found gold in New Mexico)? The analogy is a little weak, but it gets the point across. Thanks for the great post, and keep up the legendary work.
However, not matter what method you choose to make money online, understand that you might be able to make some money fast, but for the sizable returns, you'll need significant sweat equity. However, a year from now, you'll be happy you started today. Remember, time is far more valuable than money. Focus on creating passive income streams that will free up your time so that you can quit the rat race and focus on the things that matter. That's the important thing here. 
Most people need to take a step back and understand where money is even coming from on the web. Sharpe says that, when asked, most individuals don't actually even know how money is being made on a high level. How does Facebook generate its revenues? How about Google? How do high-trafficked blogs become so popular and how do they generate money from all of that traffic? Is there one way or many?

If you have your own eCommerce store, social media is the perfect platform to showcase your products. Demonstrate your products in use and tell your social following why they need to buy your merchandise. Most social media channels allow you to add ‘buy’ buttons your pages, allowing your followers to easily click through to your site and make a purchase.
A great example of this is the website:  flexsealspraycan.com.  Keep in mind, this is a niche website that’s hyper focused on one product: Flex Seal.  The money maker here is that for every sale they make, they get a split percentage from the sale.  This varies with each affiliate company but it can range from $8-$12 per sale depending on volume.  So you see, you can focus on several products at a time or one as with this example.
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.
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.

The money is most certainly in the list. If you're at all interested in online marketing, setup email software and create a lead magnet that you can use in your sales funnel. Then, build up that list. It's often said that you can expect to earn about $1 per subscriber per month. If you have a list of 10,000 subscribers, that means you can earn roughly around $10,000 per month. You will need to deliver value and not pitch them on every email, but it is a very achievable goal in a short period.
