Advice on the easiest online business to start earning money as soon as possible

77 replies
Hi,

I would like some advice on what are the easiest types of online businesses to start earning an income with? Also, is it possible to start earning a little money this year to give some incentive? Are there some businesses that are easier to succeed in than others? I've heard people mention freelance writing and others mention starting an etsy store or perhaps writing an ebook? I'm not sure what type of business would suit me the best but are things like selling images on products or writing ebooks good businesses to aim online?

    Making money online is nowhere as easy as many make it out to be. In reality, most fail to make a living at it.

          Write people's research papers for high school and college students, I'll be your first customer haha jk, kinda unethical. But maybe offer analytics for businesses looking for how to find and target their online customers or be a content creator for blogs for different small/ mid-sized companies.

          You could offer your services as a researcher. What subjects interest you? Find out which businesses deal with those subjects. Offer to do their research for them. If you can write, put that info into articles and/or ebooks that they can use to promote their businesses. You might even find that the businesses would be more than happy to gather tons of research on their specialty. In that case, gather the info into spec sheets, info papers, etc. for them to use, I feel quite confident that you could make money this way as a researcher

          Hope it gives you some ideas. Good luck!

      or start learning from YouTube to get skilled according to your interest or explore hot selling field.

    There is something you can do, if you have some skills like writing, or you speak more than one language, you can then work as a freelancer on some platforms online ,and make it great. You can look on some platforms like UP-work, and see what they can offer to you, also, you could simply read about affiliate marketing, and try to run a good mobile campaign also.

    I started my ghostwriting business here on WF.

    You can run an ad in Warriors for Hire. Offer a discount to the first ten clients to get some reviews. Then link to the ad in your signature. You won't get rich and it's hard work -- but you can start making money quickly with a minimal investment.

    When you're not busy with clients write your own books and sell them from your blog or publish on Kindle.

    Reading through the forum will give you ideas for many business models. So searches and find a model you think aligns with your skills and interest.

    Then come back and ask us specific questions about that business model and we can be more helpful.

    There is no easy way to make money online actually. It is 5% talent and 95% hard work.

    I'm sorry. I will have to give you the bad news . . .

    Your concerns for fast and easy are the kiss of death in profitable online business. Since you haven't actually begun setting up a business yet you do have time to change your mindset.

    Who are you going to serve? How are you going to provide value and help to a group of like minded people? What skills, knowledge, or talents do you have that you can share?

    This is where you begin your journey if you want a real business.

    Like Steve mentioned, I wouldn't call it "easy" ...

    However choosing something you're passionately interested in definitely makes everything "easier." (Compared to just starting something for the money.)

    The business does not earn an income because a business is an inanimate object.

    A skilled entrepreneur following their passion, who has built their skill set through years of practice, and who has created helpful content and built strong connections with leaders in their niche, these folks bank some coin.

      Great point. Thanks Ryan.

      However there are many paths to Entrepreneurial success. A mistake that many People make is thinking that "their" way is the only "way." (When many times it's not.) That said, I definitely agree about a Person following their "passion/interest".

    writetoearn,

    I don't believe there is anything easy out there, at least none that will create full-time income for you. Online marketing is hard work, probably the hardest thing you will ever do. It may take you years to get to a point where you are making full time income.

    Most people quit before they hit that point. Think about this for a minute...

    How many years of schooling did you have before you were able to go out an start making money?

    The hard core reality answer is this...

    They're all easy when you have the required level of
    skill, knowledge, experience and discipline They're all
    hard when you don't.

    If any of them were easy without skill, knowledge, experience
    and discipline everyone would be doing them and they wouldn't
    pay much.

    Successful IM is a process that deals with 'cause and effect '.

    You are asking about the effect...success.

    Your success in any venture online comes down to you learning the process of marketing...

    The CAUSE.

    Generating traffic, leads and eventually sales for your business.

    Start learning about traffic by using the search feature above so that you can start wrapping your mind around these ideas.

    You could have the best ebook, content or even services to offer but if you don't learn marketing...no one will ever find your stuff.

    And your business will become dead in the water.

      I can attest to this. Despite my proven writing talents, my success online has been stymied by my apparent inability to get a good handle on marketing. Most of my success has come from doing WSOs selling my writing and ebook creation skills.

      As has often been said, 'it's about who you know, not about what you know'... or something like that. In other words, who knows about you and how do you get them to know about you, is the first step to making sales.

      Another important step is to find a need and fill it, as has been repeated innumerable times here on the Forum. Find out what people are buying. If you're interested in writing, check the book sites and see which topics are top of the list. Run an online search for 'writers wanted' and see what type of work they need done. Scan the WSO area and see what's being offered. Run a WF search for keywords like writing, ebooks, etc. You might just find someone looking for a specific type of writer. Job sites can give you some ideas, too.

      Once you have a good idea that you think might sell, run a WSO and see how many offers/takers you get. If only a few, it might not be a good 'product'. Also, include a small note in your signature offering your service. I've sold several packages that way.

      Hope this helps.

    My two cents: You're asking the wrong question.

    Pretty much any online business (aside of dumb luck) involves time + consistency + doing the right thing =ing eventual success.

    Most people never reach their $$ potential because they lack the ability to stick to and / or care about what they are working on long enough to actually get good, get traction, and make it into something.

    All of that being said, the question to ask is "what am I interested in enough to stick with long enough to make money online?"

    Here you did't mentioned what you know and what types of business you want to do?
    Without provide good service and quality. you won't get success. So first of all think about the quality.There are several business options which you can do. But ask yourself that which business is suited for you and you know that better than others. Then you can grow the business and also grow your revenue.

    As mentioned in the earlier answers, the two most popular way to earn money online are
    1. Affiliate Marketing &
    2. Dropshipping.
    3. The next idea is to grab the product data from your local market and set up an online store to sell the products through your own online store. (Basically, start your own eCommerce site. )You can choose to use WooCommerce on WordPress site, create your store on Shopify or BigCommerce platforms as well. To promote these type of stores you can send your product feed to the merchant sites (adding sales channels to your eCommerce store.).

    Those were the product selling ideas.

    4. Next, you could start selling your skills or the skills of other people around you.

    All these ideas require some level of digital marketing and organization skills.

    Submerge yourself in the online business world and sky is the limit!

    Hi writetoearn,

    I do agree that starting and maintaining an online business come with a learning curve in most cases...

    Anyhow, if you're looking to get some extra cash online, a great place to start is doing task related jobs, like transcription works, reviewing site, etc where you get paid for specific tasks.

    Regards,

    Hi Writetoearn,

    To be honest with you making money online is not a work in the park like most newbies think. It takes time, focus, determination and dedication cause along the way you might be frustrated to give up completely.

    Now there are quick way to make money online if you have the right tools in place don't get me wrong. The question is do you have the technical know-how? cause this is where knowledge comes in.

    Before true success begins to happen you need to learn the act of making money online, know what needs to be done and how to do it correctly otherwise nothing will happen this is just the gospel truth.

    So if I were you I will concentrate on educating myself first to understand how the whole thing works like they say experience is the best teacher. This is my advice to you my friend.

    What are you good at? Not everything is a piece of cake. Nothing comes easy in this world. You'd have to work for it. Many have tried and up until now is still struggling to make it work.

      Don't worry about the confusion at the moment it's like that for some people - especially those who have a dream and not a plan.

      From what I've read you are at the point of I want to start a business but I don't know what. You've focused on what you like to do but perhaps you should also be looking at what you can do.

      This is a really good question. What skills do you have? What experience do you have?

      My first site was about wine and whisky - not because I had any passion for them but because I had worked in that industry and had knowledge about the subject.

      What can you talk for hours about? What do you really know or on a similar note what do other people ask you about?

      Your existing skills and knowledge will be the easiest (not easy) starting point.

      Are skills/knowledge connected with your desire/passion?

      One thing that people never question is do you have the aptitude and ability to follow your passion?

      I love rock music and would be a natural front man for a band but I can't sing, have no sense of timing, no natural rhythm can keep pace with music, can't play an instrument, don't understand music am tone deaf and going actually deaf and starting.

      Now I could learn most of these things given enough time, energy and money but I am very unlikely to ever get to a point where I could charge people to see me play and earn enough consistently to earn a living.

    Depends on your skillset. People will only pay for you to provide them a service. You can always build a business online but you need to know what you want to do. Some people are making a full time living being freelancers, just look at upwork.

    I would write down all the things you are good at and then find something online that will be a good fit. Making money online takes a while and requires patience, persistence, dedication and most of all hard work.

    sell on ebay.

    You drop ship products. You're wholesalers are: dhgate, deal extreme, aliexpress etc etc etc.

    Find the product you want to sell via the whole saler site. Then list it on ebay. Then if you get an order you go back to the whole saler site and order for that customer that just bought from you.

    Typically you can mark up products by easily 100%.

    The thing I like about that is it's fast, easy and requires next to no technical skills. The only problem is be very careful Ebay is run like the army or something. They're so militant. Do one thing wrong, or do nothing wrong, and they'll kick you out. So it's a short term way to make some income while your coming up with your own business. Don't rely on them long term. They're too unpredicatable.

    But also you can do the same thing as an amazon individual seller.

    I'm sorry but you've missed the boat.

    All the great ideas for making money online have been used up
    I'm afraid, so there is nothing left to try.

    See, amazon and ebay made it just in time and everybody
    starting online since then has had to feed on the scraps.

    You won't believe it but newbies have had to work, sometimes for
    like more than 2 hours a day to experiment and try to find something that works.

    Sometimes they've had to keep spending money, and testing and working long hours and learning
    and testing and failing until finally they found something that made them a living, so
    that they could tell you how to avoid all that effort so that you can have instant success.

    I'm sure someone will spill the beans and tell you a simple, quick, cheap, effortless way to
    guarantee success online......I'm certain you'll find the answer here......

    As some others stated go by their advice as internet has 90% of b .s info nowadays.

    So go with .. Fiverr , Ebay , Amazon , Adsense etc they are reliable.

    Also have your own website and offer stuff there because if you get kicked out from above which can happen believe it or not , you will have control with your customers.

    Advertise your site like crazy when you sell or provide service.

    This works best and all the best to our success in 2018.

  • Start off with Affiliate Marketing. You can open a free Clickbank or JVZoo account and start promoting various affiliate products the right away. Now, if you want to do it the right way, you need to have a Opt-in/Lead Capture page to lure your visitors to the sign up form (Name and Email address) followed by a Thank You Page. These potential visitors shall become your leads. But, don't just keep your leads idle, you need to offer them interesting newsletters with your affiliate link attached. Affiliate marketing for me is by far, the best way to make money online and it does not involve selling any physical products.

    Note: Clickkbank and JVZoo only offer digital affiliate products.

    Hope this helps!!

      Affiliate marketing was my best online venture, using only article marketing to promote my sites, which provided info on the topic and a link to the affiliate site. I was using a good article distribution service until they changed focus. Apparently, article marketing won't cut it anymore. Sad, because that's my forte. Without money for advertising, it's tough.

      As far as email marketing, in my case, my list never got beyond about 1200 (many bogus emails), and of those, only about 5 were opening my emails (basically, a dog-related newsletter that they signed up for). It appears that you need a substantially bigger list to get enough opens and clicks to make it a viable marketing tool. It all comes down to how you write your subject lines and how well you connect with what your readers/subscribers expect/want.

      This is where the 'tough' comes for me as it likely will for the OP and others. It really does take a lot of trial and error, testing subject lines and offers.

        Hmmm, even with all of those skills some things are still at pocket money or take too long levels.

        You after a while also need to think critically about your business, and make adjustments to get ahead.

        To be honest with you making money online is not a walk in the park like most newbies think. It takes time, focus, determination and dedication cause along the way you might be frustrated to give up completely.

        True, l gave up completely with flyers, and went over to fonts, as others carried on about how wonderful it was. A year later, l found out that it wasn't, and they were either crapping on or had dumb luck on their side, or were targeted to give the false impression that it made big bucks.

        On Creativemarket, you are competing against about 8k of other entries to get hand picked and then make big bucks, probably possible over a year, but unless they single you out, good money but not big.

        But yeah, tried flyers again, after some hard thinking and found a way to speed up production.

        Although l had some that also tried flyers got p***d that they couldn't do them fast enough, and had a go at me, since l was churning them out and making good profits.

        But you cannot find opportunities, by not trying, and certainly can't find them by not trying and studying your sales data.

        See, amazon and ebay made it just in time and everybody
        starting online since then has had to feed on the scraps.

        You won't believe it but newbies have had to work, sometimes for
        like more than 2 hours a day to experiment and try to find something that works.

        Sometimes they've had to keep spending money, and testing and working long hours and learning
        and testing and failing until finally they found something that made them a living, so
        that they could tell you how to avoid all that effort so that you can have instant success.

        I'm sure someone will spill the beans and tell you a simple, quick, cheap, effortless way to
        guarantee success online......I'm certain you'll find the answer here......
        Lol, you are obviously kidding.

        All of the great ideas, nope there are some left, it took me 9 years online to find mine, and l am going from strength to strength, (well, slowly going up).

        Keeping away from what doesn't work and targeting what does, is what l am currently into.

        And sure l will sell this as a WSO, but won't sell this as a make a million in your underwear crapfest.

        More like a make XXXX per month, after a year or so of hard work, and pay me first so you can get all the hard won ideas, to make it easier.

        But the time frame and hard work is still there.

        But finding a business idea, that actually works, is the real value.

    Hi:
    Since you enjoy research, you could possibly write 1 or 2 ebooks about a topic based on your interests or skills then sell online. You could also try affiliate marketing and/or become a Virtual or Personal Assistant -- maybe even a local Concierge service. You could research popular items that sell quickly, sell those online and at a local flea market.

    Hi. You have a very interesting question. There is no advice on the easiest online business to start earning money asap. However, prior to start any online business, may suggest that you need to understand the fundamental difference between online business and offline business (conventional way).

    Unless and until you know the fundamental difference, I am afraid to tell you that you may wasting your time and money and see no results. To know more about online, please let me know. I love to share and help.

    Hi: If you're doing it for the money I wouldn't depend on children's books because if your not ranked high in Amazon you won't sell many. There's always the chance yours may be different but your fighting the odds. I would say for fast money Ebay, Etsy would be the way to go. If you have a talent for building things or crafts you can sell them and you get the money fast. The internet business is hard and takes time. Affiliate marketing may be the fastest way to make some profits but a lot of them want to hold your money for a month or until you make a certain number of sales. Sorry I don't know of any easy ways, hope this helps.

    There are many jobs online and you can make money if you just do tasks on mturk(dot)com,but not more then $200/month.If you want to earn $1000s,start with bitcoin mining.That works for me.Ebooks are not a thing anymore,videos took over.Video guide or course will do well.On you tube you can have a donor with only 1000 subscribers.(jumpcut(dot*)com/1/skz6okb/first-three/).
    If you need to do ebooks I would sugest you build a list first.That takes some money,not much,$20 maybe but it can be done on facebook.First build a page and advertise to your friends and some groups with a same topic.Once you have 50-60 subs and likes,facebook will give you coupons for paid advertising.they give 3 coupons,$10,$35,$75.That is enough for you to build a list of 10,000 people,use jotform(dot)com,it is free and it comes with autoresponder.Once you have them on your list,give free value to keep them there and from time to time sell affiliate product from amazon or clickbank.Good luck

    First things first: Doing online jobs or businesses is never easy. But if you have the passion for it, then go ahead. But don't expect everything to sail smoothly in the beginning. You have to keep up the hard work.

    You should start with figuring out what interests you have first before choosing the type of business you want. If you're good at writing, then try your hand at being a freelance writer. If you're good at researching, then offer services as a freelance researcher. I think you mentioned photos and crafts in one post? You could sell those.

    There is a question that many people are asking me in the back room of the blog: how to make money fast online?

    There are many people who come and tell me "Franck, I need to earn money urgently" or "Franck, what ideas can you give me to make money fast?", Etc., etc.

    The truth is that the question makes all the sense in the world, especially in a period as difficult as the current one in which there is a lot of unemployment and people without unemployment benefit. The idea of ​​making extra money online can not be more attractive, right?

    I will try to give you a serious answer, without making false promises. Before starting, let me clarify that I will not talk about illegal practices or services related to sex. Nothing of that.

    I'll talk about proven ways that will make you get money fast. Earn real pasta without having to sell your soul to the devil.

    Without further ado, below I will explain how to make quick money on the Internet.

    Case 0: the lies about how to make fast money in the network

    Internet is wonderful. But it is also dangerous, especially depending on who you read and what you read. And to answer the search "how to get money fast" Google can return hundreds of lies like these:

    Quick Credits: the whiting that bites its tail. You need money and you end up borrowing to end up having to ask for more money to pay off the loan. It has no logic

    Sell ​​your properties: sell your mobile, objects, car and everything in second-hand markets. There are already millions of people doing the same thing as you, so you will not get much in return.

    Answer surveys or click on paid advertising: the typical portals of find, opinions and multilevel will not give you fast money. In fact, they will not give you money or long-term. Also, they are limited and you will not get much more income or registering in 15 portals at the same time.

    Webs of errands: there are several webs in which certain people publish commissions that they do not want to do and they look for somebody that does them for them. In Spain they are still not very popular and their reliability is not too great.

    Betting: betting is a dangerous market if you do not know how to control it. Do not believe that by knowing something about football, basketball or any other sport you will be able to earn money with it. You will end up losing more than you earn.

    These are only 5 of all that can appear. And I have nothing against the second-hand market, the polls, the errands websites or the bets. But I do not think that they are the best way to make money quickly on the Internet.

    Easy money does NOT exist . I know that this title may have deceived you a bit and make you think it's easy, but there is no money given or an exact and brilliant way to make money on the Internet.

    Of course, all this does not mean that there are no ideas to make quick money or that winning pasta is impossible. Not much less.

    We are going to see two real cases with which you can make money fast and that have worked for me before. And, in addition, you can maintain this level of income and even overcome it over time.

    Case 1: I do not have business, I do not know how to do anything special, I do not have money to mount something or know what to ride

    But I do want money next week.

    Well, your case has an easy answer.

    Choose a niche market.

    Form yourself in the subject.

    Help this group through a blog.

    That is, before thinking about making fast money online, build an audience. That will take you between 3 and 12 months of your time if you do it in parallel with a job search.

    There is no other serious answer. There is no other way to earn fast money if you want to dedicate yourself to this.

    There are no miracles or passive schemes where you do nothing and lash the dough as if you were the biggest camel in your neighborhood. Stop dreaming, stop wasting your time and do not let yourself be fooled by anyone. You can not make fast money on the Internet just like that .

    Then, your best option is still the search for employment and the provision of small services in your community, which will surely pay you in black. This is what it is.

    This is what you have to do if the State does not allow you to live with dignity in this difficult period. I do not know another answer. I'm really sorry. I can not think of other ideas to make quick money that do not imply what I said that I will not say in the introductory paragraph.

    These are difficult moments where you will have to demonstrate character and faith in a better future. Work always ends up paying. The theme is to continue fighting every day as if it were the last of your life.

    Case 2: I can not pay the bills of my company

    When you work in the sale, understanding the context of each business is essential, both to optimize your rate of conversion from offer to customer and not to waste time with customers who know from the first minute of conversation that you will not buy anything.

    Every time I speak with an entrepreneur or with a micropyme owner I tell him 3 things:

    That you must consolidate your business on the Internet.

    That should start to have a more continuous strategy over time.

    You have to try to start selling with this new tools as soon as possible.

    When I do, I find that there is always interest , but there is also a lot of disbelief about the results that can be achieved .

    And one of the elements that contribute to this negativity to invest and consolidate their assets in an online channel is that most of the microenterprises in Spain are totally drowned economically and need money to pay salaries, electricity bills, telephone ...

    There is tremendous pressure on the ability to generate money in the very short term.

    Since you understand very well the context in which we move, I propose a practical case.

    Practical exercise: you have 30 days to generate 1,000 euros to "earn easy and fast money"

    # 1 We start by discarding the most common solutions

    Faced with this problem, thinking a bit about what you can do when you really need to make quick money (and we are talking about this week or at the most, in the next 30 days), I think the smartest thing you can do is NOT to think in setting up a new website, or an online store.

    These solutions require some time to give results and also presuppose an outflow of money if it is to pay your provider. Once you have these assets you will have to figure out how you are going to attract qualified visitors to these assets .

    Come on, it's like buying yourself a luxury car and not having money to pay for gas. When you fight for your life, it is useless to make plans for the future. You need to get money fast and now.

    Social networks also do not provide answers because for me they are networking tools and, in the face of attracting new customers, they are not the most appropriate. If you have a large network of contacts you will be able to use them, but if you do not have one, you can not expect to create it in 30 days and make quick money.

    In short, when you do not know if your business is going to close in the next 30 days, common solutions such as:

    Mount a website or redesign one that is already online.

    Set up an online store

    Start an activity on social networks or resume a poor networking activity.

    Paint the subject wrong, right?

    All businesses have a lethal weapon: use it

    The only thing I can think of for all those who already have a business set up for years, is to think about doing specific promotions to the list of current clients . This is the only tactic that allows you to think about generating income in the short term and quickly.

    The investment can be very low, since I'm talking about email marketing . If you start with a solution like Mailchimp you will not have to pay until you have 2,000 users subscribed to your mailing list and you can start working with email.

    Well, we have already identified a possible solution that can give an answer to how to make quick money if you have a basis to do so.

    What do you really know about email marketing and selling fast online?

    Now that I have identified a possible tactic to act and leverage income in the short term, you must be clear that communicating well with email marketing and campaigns that generate many orders is not a natural art for all entrepreneurs.

    Therefore, I think it is important that you try to train in email marketing, that you learn from the best practices in direct sales and how to maintain a relationship with your customers.

    It is important that you understand that you can not exhaust your mailing list by sending a different promotion every two times , because this is not what you want. What you want is to rekindle a relationship that you can already have with clients, provide value and, from time to time, present offers.

    For this reason it is vital to understand the basics of what a well-assembled offer can be, which includes several elements, such as insisting on the problem, indicating why this problem is so relevant, explaining later that you have a solution, detailing properly This solution and try to make an offer that is interesting for your customers.

    Digital direct selling is much more than playing with prices and discounts

    Not always the art of direct sales is limited to playing with prices, you can bundles (packs or packages) of various products or give an added service that your competitors do not offer and, suddenly, increase the perceived value of your offer.

    This is a way to earn quick and easy money. When it's urgent, it's time to take advantage of the power of email marketing. And when it is not, too.

    It is about offering guarantees, to incorporate, as a social proof, testimonials from customers who have already used the service you want to promote and have been very satisfied because this service or this product has really brought something positive to their own company.

    It is about defining a time scale during which the promotion will be available or a discount will be applied and, after this time, it will stop applying, and explain the reason for this decision.

    As you can see, you have to learn to work seriously with your sales communications in the email channel. And I think email marketing is probably the least sexy topic right now on the Internet, but it is the one that can bring the best results in the short term if you are an entrepreneur or you have a microenterprise and you have a list of clients that you have built throughout the years. years of your project.

    Your business has not died. Use your mailing list and start earning pasta quickly.

    How to make money online really

    I could write thousands of words to tell you how I won and I earn more than € 40,000 a month with this blog. But, as I have already done, I will only tell you what you have to do:

    Read this post about how to make money with a blog .

    Choose a suitable niche , start with your blog and stop thinking so much about "I need to make money fast" and think more about doing it in the long term.

    Goodluck

I'm not sure what type of business would suit me the best but are things like selling images on products or writing ebooks good businesses to aim online?
    https://youtu.be/t-wUe5aEwHM

    Here is advice on the easiest types of online money making ideas.

    You apparently want to write or can, judging from some of your follow up posts.

    The fastest, easiest way for a writer to get started and have quick results is: find a successful product; Warrior+, JVZoo, eBay, Amazon....your Facebook groups.

    Then create a quick, simple little COMPLIMENTARY product, I call it a HOTSHEET, others call it cheat sheets, or guides, or manuals or instructions. You know there is a market, you could do a JV with the list owner, or create your own site.

    There are Warriors who VERY recently have run "dime sales" (if you don't know, then do some homework) and have sold their little files for 3.77 and have taken in hundreds of dollars in a matter of days.

    Would you consider that quick and easy? There are now many courses on writing, creating and acquiring simple little info or ephemera products, simple little publications which can be used to build a business around.

    It is possible, to create a product, a HOTSHEET, this morning and have money in your PayPal account before dinner time. But easy is a relative idea, and fast depends on your need.

    Of course, if your easy and quick idea is tied to a long range plan and is only one step along your path, then all the better, you can build it up as you go along and siphon off enough moolah to keep motivated.

    GordonJ

    PS. Do a google search for cheatsheets, guides just to whet your appetite.Google Images for Cheatsheets Guides to see examples.

    Also, Google free infographic templates, and you'll see scores of examples on how easy it is to create your own little cheatsheet.

      I sell a software product that comes with an installation guide and a user guide, but no "how to" videos. One of my customers approached me and asked if I intended to create them in the future.

      The answer was "no" (I hate creating/editing videos), so he asked if I had a problem if he created those videos to sell. Not only did I NOT have a problem... I told him that if he created good quality videos, I'd gladly upsell them to my existing customers, and to my future customers.

      He created a video series, set me up as his affiliate, and we both made a lot of money.

      It was a primary income stream for him, and I was happy to add his videos to my own sales funnel and collect commissions on every copy I referred. Since I was the ONLY person with a buyers list of my own customers... I basically got first shot at any new prospects for his product.

      This strategy is not as "fast and easy" to set up, but once his product was created he got a captive market and a very stable income source.
