Are there any new ways to make money online, besides affiliate marketing, article marketing, freelancing, or advertising?

    I'm not so sure. Freelancing could be just about anything. You've listed pretty much everything that could be approached for making money online.

    You could make your own website and sell your own products. Or sell services that you know how to do and others do not like make a youtube video, SEO service (You can make really big money if you know how to do SEO correctly.) Write articles for other people or even build a website for people who do not know how. Hope this helps!

      What you want to know doesn't exist. When you work online - you are selling. You may sell information, your products, someone else's products, advertising, whatever.

      The methods that work now are the exactly the same ones that worked five years ago. The techniques and tools may change here and there - but the ways to earn money are pretty much the same.

      You don't need to re-invent the wheel - you need to learn to get the wheels rolling.

      Just wait a second – so what you're telling me is that my chance of surviving all this is directly linked to the common sense of others? You’re kidding, right?

    Kay was so true about that.

    And Jayzee, while you already know that there are so many people doing these kind of things, that you might not want to do, why don't be the one who provide those services to these group of people which you're talking about?

    There might be some other people who don't want to get their hand dirty, so by providing services to these people, you're going to make some money while getting your feet wet in the IM world too.

    Hope it helps.

    The internet is just a "new" medium, the ways we use to make money online are the same as people have been using for decades (and longer) offline.

      Figure out what you love to do. What you would do all day everyday with out getting paid. Then spread the word that you are now offering to do what you like to do for anybody who needs it. In exchange, you will need to charge a small or high one time or monthly fee. Since it is your gig, you make the rules, the prices, meet the customers, and receive the money in the long run. It also doesn't have to be something that you love doing, it can be something that you have an interest or want to seek further knowledge in.

    There are a lot of ways to make money. As James Foster said, the Internet is just a new medium, one that can get you lots of exposure.

    One thing I don't think anyone mentioned so far is buying and selling websites. It's similar to flipping a car or house. Your goal is buy a website (or content) at less than fair market value and resell it (or clean it up, add value and then resell it) for a profit.

    If you keep your eyes open, you can even pick up a really low maintenance website, keep it for a few months to earn a little cash and maybe work to increase traffic/content/seo (and increase it's value)... then sell sell it.

    Or, try to take an offline business online?

      You've probably heard it said in IM before that you only need master two things... 1) Traffic and 2) Conversion. It's a cliche but it's true. Whether you want to make money from list building, blogging, affiliate marketing or creating your own information products, you need those two fundamental skills.

      Always be working to increase your traffic assets each and every day. Research demand for a product thoroughly with good niche research and use proven traffic strategies to get eyeballs watching it.

          It seems to me that having a site that can convert traffic is the most important starting point. Driving traffic does nothing if the site isn't useful to people.

          What type of site do you have? What real value does it provide to its users? Once you know that, you can start figuring out inexpensive ways to drive profitable traffic to your site.

    Hi Jayzee!
    Freelancing is something you dismissed.. but have you really looked into it? Look at some of the gigs available on places like Elance.. there may be projects you never knew about which suit your interests quite nicely.
    If you are looking for a "hot new" internet marketing scheme though, you would have to develop it yourself.. new things are usually either instantly popular (thus not unique anymore) or instantly fail.

    Best of luck!

      There are so many freelancing opportunities like freelance writing, freelance photography, freelance programming etc. But I want freelance data entry, like form filling and submitting at required times. So anyone can tell me?

        A quick search on elance.com will tell you that you CAN do stuff like data entry there. There are more opportunities than you know - check out the elance site.

        Good luck!

    Selling your own ****. Like your own books or consultancy services, or in my case, communication coaching services. But I suppose that goes under freelancing.

    There's the other side of the great divide -- setting up a product or service for sale, and getting afilliate marketers to sell them.

    You can create a solid business on all of the things you have mentioned and the additional lists offered by Sean and others - it sounds like you are just in a bit of a funk because something you thought would work quickly hasn't had the results you were hoping for and that is a classic newbie line of thinking.

    If you go for things that are easy then you aren't going to see the results you were hoping for. If you want to try something that works - well you have listed them already - affiliate marketing works, freelancing works, advertising and article marketing works. But to get them to work you need to do your research.

    In article marketing for example you need to do your keyword research so you can compete sensibly for the longer tailed keywords with less competition. In affiliate marketing you have to do the same thing - don't go for the high gravity products in Clickbank; pick something that is not as well known, but still is a useful product people are looking for. In freelancing pick your best skills and then promote yourself as much as you can, everywhere you can.

    And for me personally, well product creation is the best idea for residual incomes but that is just my personal opinion.

    You can succeed online but you do need to put in the work first.

    Best of luck

        Clickbank is not the best. It's just one of the best ways to make money via affiliate marketing. It all depends on your hard work and so on.
