All the posible ways to make money online...

12 replies
Hello, I'm Alex, an online entrepeneur looking to achieve financial freedom just like everyone else on here.

I've been trying to make money online since 2015 and so far I've earned not more than $200; I recently noticed that the reason why I'm not making money is my lack of concentration, instead of focusing in one thing, like for example: CPA, I get overloaded with information and try different things at once, this is one of the several attitudes that provoke my failure.

I'm conscious that a lot of peole have the same issue as me, that's why I'm making this thread, to help all the newcomers make their very first dollars online steering them in the right direction, but most importantly, to help them avoid making the same mistakes I made.

What I'm looking for are some general concepts or methods and their variations...

For example, someone could suggest CPA (method), and then say I could promote my offers via Twitter, rank a video on YouTube to do it, etc. (it's variations).

With all the information posted here, I'm going to make a complex mind map that's going to include everything related to each money making technique, so when people get confused about the subject they can look at this to decide what they're going to do, how are they going to do it, and what they need to do it.

This is a brief and vague example of what I'm going to create:


If you're reading this, I'd really aprecciate if you could at least think about one method and post it here, remember we all started as newbies; thanks.

    Affiliate / CPA marketing is basically the same. You are simply promoting someone else's offers.

    Promoting affiliate / CPA offers has been my core business for a little over 17 years and below is how I do it.

    I heavily promote PPL (pay per lead...lead generation) offers. This is because there is no credit card / purchase required to complete an offer. All a user has to do is fill out a form, so conversion rates are typically much higher compared to offers that require a sale to be made.

    I favor offers that have a make, get or save money benefit to them, as they have overall worked the best. They also tend to have the greatest mass appeal (will be of interest to a large general audience), so the potential exists to produce high volume and they are fairly easy to cross promote on the back-end.

    Some of the verticals (niches) I have done extremely well with are: education, insurance, loans, debt, credit, mortgage, assistance, discount offers, homeowner offers, etc...

    The bulk of the PPL offers that I promote pay $20-$40 per lead, but I also promote offers that pay more and less. You don't want to get too caught up on what an offer pays because how well it converts is just as important. For example, if you have an offer that pays $9, but if it converts at 2X or more of a $20 offer, then it will perform about the same or possibly better. At the same time, if you have an offer that pays $90 and it converts poorly, it may not even be worth promoting.

    I have also done just as good with dating website sign-ups and pretty good with free trial + S/H offers. I also promote a very limited number of offers that are straight up purchase offers. However, mass appeal needs to exist and I look for one of the following to also exists:

    1) The product is new and/or novel-unique and you can't purchase it locally or even something similar. I don't waste my time with it once something similar shows up in Walmart.

    2) The buyer can truly get what is being offered at a decent discount.

    3) Solves a house is on fire type problem.

    However, most of the above I will promote on the back-end. Which is why the first thing I look for is mass appeal.

    Bottom line, it's far easier to get someone fill out a short form than to get them to pull out their credit card and make a purchase. So why struggle with trying to sell this or that, when you can provide free information that users want/need and get paid well doing it.

    I drive traffic and build responsive email lists using fresh / targeted 3rd party email data and generating real-time, co-reg leads.

    3rd party data is email leads of users that have shown an interest in a specific PPL niche or offer and have given permission to receive messages from third parties. You get the opt-in record of each user and it's 100% can-spam compliant.

    Co-reg is simply where I place an ad for a specific PPL offer on a co-registration network and their publishers display it at the time a user is signing up with them and can request more info about my offer. When a user requests more info their contact info is then automatically imported into my ESP account and they are sent a message regarding the offer. Which I pay on a per lead basis.

    So with the above, I am getting fresh / targeted leads specifically for the PPL offers I'm promoting. However, they are not typically as responsive as a high-quality opt-in list that you build yourself. So to compensate for this you need to work with higher volume. This is not a big deal since the cost is much cheaper and highly scalable compared to traditional list building methods.

    When mailing, you want to skim off the top any fast-track conversions and then for long-term success, you want to always be collecting your opens / clickers, segmenting and removing unresponsive users...converting the leads from quantity to quality and into quality responsive lists. Which you can then also cross-promote other offers on the back-end.

    So basically I promote PPL offers because they provide the path of least resistance to generating conversions/$$$ and converting the data into cash producing assets.

    There is really more to it than it sounds, but done right it can be extremely profitable. Everyone that I know that is in the business and knows what they are doing, for the most part, does 6-7 figures. While that's a huge range, much comes down to one's ability to scale and effectively build / manage the infrastructure needed to scale.

    Something to think about

    Instead of drawing these mindmaps just make a video (a simple video - you in front of the camera) and post an offer in a description box.
    Don't build a list, don't buy lighting setup or professional camcorder, just make that video. Then another video.
    You're overwhelmed with all the information, and instead of doing things you're making them more complex. Don't you see that?

    Looks like you got a lot going on. I would focus on one offer and 1 - 3 marketing methods until you start seeing success. Then expand from there.

    You need to focus, test & tweak until you get the results you are looking for before you start scaling & expanding.

      Why do I get the feeling that this thread is one step in doing that?

      Someone who has made $200 in three years due to SOS wants to create an extensive mind map using user-generated content?

      Something smells fishy here.

    With all the information posted here, I'm going to make a complex mind map that's going to include everything related to each money making technique, so when people get confused about the subject they can look at this to decide what they're going to do, how are they going to do it, and what they need to do it.
    Haddictive/ Alex,

    The time and effort you put into your complex mind map could be devoted to growing your business. Forget the map. You've been in IM since 2015. Pick a model and make it work, mate.

    ...and you're doing it again by taking the time to collect all the information here and bundle it up into a mindmap.

    Mindmaps can serve a purpose, but what you are proposing will simply gather all of YOUR distractions in one place to confuse/distract the people you say you're trying to help.

    Instead of trying to "help all the newcomers", build your own business to the point that you truly have a successful model to share.

    I see distraction, which apparently is your problem.

    Every single thing on your mind map, which could generate revenue for you, is THE ONE SAME THING.

    Two entities exchanging value.

    There you go, four words to simplify your life and make your quest come alive.

    You want money coming to you, eh? What is leaving you, going from you to the person who gave you the money? What do they get?

    Everything on your mindmap is simply a transaction model, nothing else. Some are extremely complicated, multi step operations which require a lot of time and/or money to implement.

    Let me give you an example and using your own 200 dollar take from your effort, which should really embarass you, right?

    There is a guy on eBay, and I won't link to it, and I have no affiliation with, has sold over 900 bux worth of a little booklet on VooDoo, for cry in the buckets.

    64 sold, at over 14 dollars each or about 15 sales to reach your 200 dollar level.

    See it is a simple exchange of offering what people are willing to pay for. That should be your square one. Not some time burning useless mind map of all the ways, including the dubious black hat ways...

    You are facing the wrong direction. You are looking the wrong way. You are looking outside of your self, onto a map of possibility most of which is NOT possible for you to do, based on your own history.

    Step back, today is a good day to do it. Ask what you have to offer? What info, experience, skills, knowledge do you bring to the table...

    And THEN you can figure out who wants to buy it, where they are at, the platform or site to use, the type of ads to run.

    The VooDoo guy on ebay has sold over 10,000 items, at an average of over 10 dollars during the time you have "earned" your 200 bux.

    And he is just one of the millions of people who offer SOMETHING to people with the money to BUY what he has, and who WANT it. He's hardly a copy writing genius, not much to an ebay listing...but there are apparently people (at least 64) who were willing to spend the 14 bux on something as spurious as a booklet on VooDoo.

    Surely you can offer something better than that, eh? (If not, maybe a job is best thing for you in 2018).

    There is a simple bridge, you on one side, a prospect with money on the other, meet in the middle and EXCHANGE value, it really is the ONLY mind map you will ever need

    ...as long as you don't come to that bridge empty handed, like you're doing now.
