I'm looking for some suggestions on the best course of action to take, from experienced internet marketers who are making a lot of money online (well above a living wage) consistently.
Here is the deal:
I'm about broke. Cannot get a traditional full-time job as I'm a caretaker for a disabled medically-frail relative, who needs me to be available for assistance as needed. This also requires me to have an atypical sleep schedule.
I'm looking to start a business online that will afford me the ability to make a full-time income from a laptop, so that I can work flexible hours. However, I'm not just interested in trading time for money as a freelancer though. I want to achieve financial freedom, by building a lot of wealth, and as quick as possible. I'm tired of the financial struggle of not having enough money. It would be nice to have wealth so that I don't have to worry about things like an unexpected car repair. Also, I have dreams of upgrading the lifestyle for myself and the relative I take care of, while they are still alive.
Here is what I do have to work with:
Very little money (I work a small amount of hours part time - almost all money goes to my bills)
Time (a lot of it - though it is interrupted)
A computer with an internet connection
Some experience with digital marketing as a coordinator in marketing about 4-5 years ago. I have general knowledge about auto-responders, building a list, etc.
No higher education degree or technical skill, but a willingness to try different digital marketing techniques to get repeatable results.
A lot can and probably has changed in 4 - 5 years regarding what is effective and what isn't since l learned about digital marketing.
I was thinking about maybe starting an Instagram / Youtube brand with beauty tutorials, product reviews, affiliate marketing, maybe also create some decor products on RedBubble.com and promote them to my audience. Yet, I believe I read that since the 2018 Instagram algorithm change, influencers posts are only reaching about 30% of their audience. That's not good for promoting content on a channel I would have, or for producing results by paying another influencer (should I eventually make enough money) to promote my offers to their audiences. Obviously, IG would not be my only attempt at monetization though. I know the long-term financial value of building a business and a brand even if it takes a while to see desired results; so that is a worthwhile plan I would like to still embark on. Yet, that does not bring me quick income I'm looking for right now. In the meantime, I want to look into other income generating opportunities for more immediate results, that require little to no money investment or technical skill.
Honestly, I'm overwhelmed with all the different voices in the digital marketing sphere. I just want to know what works. I don't want to waste time or what little money I have. I want results; and results that are repeatable. I've read about the Sarah Staar Beginner Blueprint for $27; is that a good blueprint for making money online quickly?
If there is anyone here who is making a lot of money consistently online, would you please respond with some helpful suggestions on how I can make a lot of money online very quickly, and with very little financial investment or high-level technical skill?
