Top Ten Ways to Make Money Online - Honestly
Do you want to make money online? Too many websites offering products related to making
money from home, are over-promising and under-delivering. Here are some techniques and methods
to honestly make money online now.
1. Affiliate Programs
Affiliate programs offer you a way to make money online by promoting products for people
or companies. You do not need to have your own product and when you promote for the company
and sales are made, you earn a commission on the sale (either a percentage of the profits or
a flat dollar amount). You can promote the product through writing about it on your website,
blog, Squidoo, or on Social Networking Websites. If you want to find some affiliate programs
to join, you can look through Clickbank, CJ and ShareASale to start.
2. Build It and Sell It - Or Buy It and Build It
If you build up a niche website with high-quality content related to the topic of your
site - you can either keep the site as it is or you could sell it for a profit. Personally,
I've made numerous niche websites over the years and a lot of them are receiving targeted traffic,
but not making much money. They may have Google AdSense ads on them, but are still not making
the type of money I would like them to. If I don't want to work on marketing that website,
I could sell it to someone who actually has a product that relates to the topic of my site.
Recently, I sold a website I built up for three years (it was not profiting at all and I didn't
have time to deal with marketing it) and I got a quick $3000 for it on Flippa. Some people
call this "Blog Flipping" or "Site Flipping." It works to make a quick chunk of money, but
not sustainable unless you are driven to create numerous blogs, build them up, and resell them.
Alternatively, you could buy a website on Flippa, build it up and profit from it.
3. Membership Websitesv
Residual income is the way to make money online. People sell ebooks and products online
all the time - but to make a real sustainable, lasting income is by either having your own
membership website or by promoting (as an affiliate) a membership website that you believe
in. The key here is to only promote a membership website or program that you have tried, or
are currently a member of - and vouch for it 100 percent. With so many scams online these
days, it can be tough to find such a membership program.
As of now, I can honestly tell you that I do believe in a few programs out there. Blog
Masters Club is one - by David Grisley. It is currently not open to the public (just filled all slots)
but if you direct people to signup on that page and they later make a sale, you will make a
residual commission on their membership.
Yaro Starak is also an honest marketer with a great membership site called the Membership
Site Mastermind and strangely enough it is currently not taking on any more students. I think it
is a good thing that they are not taking on every new person that wants to signup - because
they truly to do provide individual training and help through their membership sites. Just
like the other program - if you direct traffic and they signup to be notified when the program
is available, you will still receive your commissions. Yaro also has other free reports you
can promote as an affiliate and signup here.
Lastly, a membership site that I am a part of is Easily Answered - it is a program that
allows members to join and ask questions directly to the experts in related online marketing fields.
