Best Ways to Make Money Online with Limited Time

37 replies
If you work 15 hour days (1 full time job =10 hours and 1 part time job=5 hours) and you want to replace your part time job with making money online. What aspect of internet marketing would you start out with? I figure product creation is out of the question as that requires time to interact with customers and other responsibilities. Affiliate marketing or CPA maybe...?

    IMO, there is NO way to make money online without spending a lot of time. Some courses my state otherwise. If you hear that, be careful of lies and misconceptions.

    You have 2 choices - do the work yourself (lots of time)
    Hire freelancers to do it for you - costs money.

    Yea, you can go for affiliate marketing and CPA if you don't have the time to attend to customers. Just work on it one step at a time. Find the offers, build a website, add content, promote it / drive traffic to it each day after your work hours. Also, remember to build your list.

    Tony was dead-on matter what route you decide to go, it's going to require a steep learning curve and a lot of trial and error. Then it takes time, patience and lots of actual work, so you'll likely be replacing one job for another for the first six months or so.

    If you have the passion and the work ethic though, then it's definitely worth the trade-off.

    My personal advice would be to think of ANYTHING you're super-passionate passionate about and start a daily blog about it. Write one article per day, link in a few YouTube videos from time to time, and don't place a single ad anywhere on your domain.

    Then, register your blog with the major search engines, get it indexed on forums, review sites and directory sites, and then reach out to other bloggers within the same niche and start to build relationships. Maybe even send your blog to journalists with major outlets that cover your niche.

    Then, when your website starts to get natural traffic and you're seeing familiar faces, start to ask your visitors their opinion. Build a social media site to get the conversations going and host contests where your readers will include their friends. You can also reach out to businesses and ask for donations to be used as prizes (in exchange for you talking about them on your blog).

    Once your website and your social channels are thriving with lots of activity, start seeking sponsors for your site. Then maybe add in a few of your own affiliate links, or maybe start mentioning products directly through your blog.

    Believe it or not, this is THE EASIEST WAY to make money online...and it is easily six months worth of hard work. The good news is that you'll learn a lot from the process though and it will help you focus on other sites that you can make...that's where virtually every successful online marketer started.

    Hopefully that helps!

    If you are looking to generate money straight away, you can buy an established site that already makes decent revenue every month. Then you can update it and add gimmicks to make even more money.

    If you are looking to generate $100 a day at minimum, I recommend selling to local businesses. You can easily find businesses looking for new ways to make money and increase their business.

  • It's tough to say exactly since every possible way to make money online requires a lot of time. Of course, there are faster things you could do to start making some money.

    I honestly don't know what skills you have, what you already know, and what kind of businesses you are trying to step into.

    I'm guessing you just really want to supplement your income, right?

    I would like to say agree with the above poster and say, yes, offline marketing would be good for you since your only problem would have to be to get clients, which is definitely hard for sure when you think about cold calling and emailing business owners. However, when you land a client, you could earn $200-$1,000+ from a single client, (sometimes monthly if you can keep them on a monthly retainer) which would easily supplement your part time income, and that income could quickly grow over time.

    If you ever have questions about offline marketing or want any of my past WSOs on this topic, just let me know and I'd glad to help.

    Okay at first you will HAVE to put in the work, initially ,no matter what

    But over time Email Marketing with Follow Up funnels can be a great way to maximize your income with limited amount of hands on work ( especially if you are just concentrating on Aff. Products)

    Nothing to see here including a Sig so just move on :)

    The only way you will make money in a limited amount of time is by freelancing, you will get paid X for your time, guaranteed.. Wen you do IM, affiliate marketing or whatever, you don't get X for your time, and X is a big variable in IM, and the X isn't even guranteed..

    I would stick to a classic but working method:

    - Setup your own blog and build a squeeze page
    - get yourself an autoresponder service
    - find a good offer to promote (I mean good one), later you can promote your own products, coaching and so on
    - start with driving traffic to your squeeze page (Youtube, Facebook, Forum, Paid Traffic)
    - build a relationship with your list and most important provide massive value to them

    Rinse and repeat!

    Hope that helps!

    If you are working 15 hours per day, you don't have a lot of time to get things going.

    This is what I would do:

    Since you are working 15 hours per day, money should not be a problem for you to get started and pay for things to get the ball rolling.

    You need a website of your own.
    You need to find some really good affiliate programs to sell.

    Once you have these 2 ready, all you need to do is to set up pay per click campaigns in places like Google and Yahoo.

    Start small to see how your ads are converting and how many sales you get. I would recommend you start with a $10 per day budget. Once you are getting small wins, then spend more per day.

    I would say blogging. If you know how to write well and write about interesting things, you can make money. People will find your website through search engines and will share it.
    You'll be able to make money through ads and affiliate links.

  • I would say if you want to drive traffic to a website fast and make money with little/no work then you will need to pay for it. However if you want to make money without spending any/as much money then it's going to take some time and work.

    Firstly if you are willing to pay for traffic and make money with little/no work then I would look at finding out which niche/product is popular and where are the buyers for this product located such internet blogs/forums websites, social networks, or could you contact a someone who's made a product similar to your and do a joint venture then outsource the creation of your product once this is done you can either outsource someone else to market the product to where the buyers are or market the product yourself.

    I however wouldn't recommend you do any of this as there is a 50/50 chance you won't make your money back this way and you'll either be in a loss or make just enough money to break even due to the cost of outsourcing the creation of the product and the cost of marketing.

    I would recommend you create your own product to sell yourself then market it yourself as by doing this you will be saving a lot of money and you will be making a lot more money

    You could also become an outsourcer offering your services as a product creator/marketer and then get someone else who is offering to do the work at a cheaper rate (such as fiverr) to do those services for you thereby making a profit from the difference but the profit margins are smaller than creating the product yourself.
    {{ DiscussionBoard.errors[9886586].message }}
  • Also affiliate marketing is a great way to make money but you'll need to find products that you think will sell well and you will need to spend some time finding out where people will buy the product/service then either that either oursource the marketing process (which I don't recommend) or you can market it yourself by either by seo, article creation, video marketing, blogging, social networking and so on.

    However this will take some time and patience in order for the traffic and sales grow.

      You will probably need to rely on others to complete the work for you through outsourcing. Fiverr usually has the best prices.

      You could start you own Utube channel for free about a hobby or skill. There are hundreds of people that do this. Example: (plumber showing you how to fix a leaking faucet) If you like knives, do a review of your favorites. It can be anything.

    I think it will be difficult with such limited time. But I do think it will be possible. I mean 5 hours a day is a lot of time to spend on a project. Initially it will move very slowly as you transition from the part time job into online marketing but once the transition is done everything should go just fine.

    Good post & I can relate as I was working 12 hours a day & spending about an hour to two hours a night when I 1st started in order to get the website up, add pages and articles and finding pictures and adding links. I have now had it almost 3 months and hope that in a few months with some more articles that it will start to pay off. I would also recommend sharing with social media sites and using YouTube as a way to get free traffic. I currently have 41 articles and 52 YouTube videos and am looking forward to having over 50 articles and over 100 videos over the next month or so. Persistence is the main thing with building a following and backlinks to your website but when you get enough you should have a steady stream of traffic to start making sales

    We'll the only other way than putting time in that I know of is putting money in.

    If you can invest, buy a business that's making money (you can use that income to scale up, or leave your part-time job), or outsource the "scaling up" of said business, and reap the rewards. I would look for businesses with verifiable income that sell one or a minimal number of products, have an email list that is responsive (and proven), and can be continued and scaled up. If you have an eye and mind for business, it's the easiest way to get started, in my opinion.

    Personally, if I were you, I would spend as much time as possible learning paid advertising venues like PPC, Facebook ads, banner advertising, PPV, just to name a few.

    Working as much as you do, you should have no problem with funds. However time is definitely against you, so leverage your funds for time within the paid advertising realm and you should be good to go.

    I would start off with one venue like Facebook ads, get a lot of experience under your belt selling affiliate products and services, then start with another paid venue, points that one is mastered.

    Sure you may lose some money at first however if you apply the basic principles of paid advertising from rocksolid courses mixed with practical application, you'll do very well.

    Both options you mention (CPA and AM) are good. However, both will take time to learn so best is to choose one, stick with it, learn it step by step. As long you make progress each day/week you will get where you want to be. Be very patient as it can be tempting to give up.

    There are some great courses you can get on CPA for cheap price and great business opportunities where 90% of the work is done for you so you can focus on one thing - getting traffic!

    If you don't already have skills that you can use to your advantage, then it will take a lot of time before you start making some money, because you would be starting from scratch and you'd have t learn a lot of stuff!
    If you do have some skills, you could try freelancing (building websites, offering SEO services, and so on... lots of possibilities!)

    You need a proven replicated sales funnels with a proven high conversion rate . Also proven high quality traffic to Promote a system that offers a great services or products.

    So, basically the work has been done by successful people that now what they are doing,

    But now here is where you come in this.. You have to advertize and spend some money.

    Once you have a proven service or product all it takes is an advertising money start small and keep going till you build it up. Then spend more! Make More $$$

    This is the least time consuming way and very successful!

    This is a very general question you have to ask yourself

    1) What do I want to sell?

    2) How am I going to generate traffic?

    figure this out an the more people can help, but if you don't even know what you want to sell then you should definitely consider answer that question first.

    If you want to ask how to choose a product or how to get traffic then that is something that but you need to specify that

    To make any type of significant money you can't do it with "limited time"...BUT if you really need to make money fast you can always look into YouTube marketing. Upload videos targeting product reviews, rank them, and profit.

    The quickest and best way to start making money online is providing a service.

    Once you make enough to survive. Think about product creation or building an audience which solves problems.

    Because with that leverage you are able to make more and quicker.

      Go with affiliate marketing out the gate... You will basically be sending targeted traffic to a squeeze page giving away some free offer like a video, software or ebook in exchange for the persons email, then you would be redirecting them to a relevant offer and a percentage will likely make a purchase if it is a great offer...

      and the people who don't make an initial purchase are in your email list so you can monetize it later with other similar offers that might resonate with them.

      And essentially the bigger the list the more income you can earn, also later you can outsource product creation, sales page and video with the money you made and still use the list to drive traffic to your site and also to get affiliates for you product and they can begin to be a huge traffic source.

      But affiliate marketing is a great way to start without a product, customer service, merchant accounts and stuff of that nature.
