Does anyone else make a living online?

by payment proof 82 replies
How do you do it? Are you using online sites? If so, what types of sites?

Or do you have an off line home business? Feel free to post about that too.

Maybe we can exchange some ideas and help each other.

Thanks.

            On my way. Hopefully within the next 18 months I'll be able to quit the day job and go at it full time. I've really worked on diversifying my income streams. The online world is pretty unpredictable unfortunately, so I want to avoid any nasty surprises when I finally cut the cord with the rat race.

    I was full time a year ago, then I took a break since things was really getting on top of me. Don't help having a full time job since you constantly think about your IM business while at work but can't do a thing about it.

    Though while on a break I started a blog which was catered around the freebie market, you know the types promoting sites such as freepay etc (Yes they do work!) just as a hobbie I thought this would be fun. I managed to get #1 for a really competitive keyword, it took time but I learnt so much from this which was to be patient and never rush things and also never give up!

    I'm back now, last 2 months I have been rebuilding the blocks and getting ready to set my self up. Time to turn them free ipods into cash!

    I have been making my living online full time for over 15 years building websites from simple html website to very high end dynamic built websites. All sites I build are 100% from scratch.. I use no open source code or pre-built sites.

    I have also produced a few info products in my days and earned from affiliate networks but mainly my income comes from my web development business.

      blokh, you'll find this amusing:

      In another tab on my browser I was researching how to cloak affiliate links (using Google). I took a break from following the links in the results and began reading this thread. Then I went back and saw (9th result on the first page) a result for your link cloaking form at raakesh.com! I recognized the name because I just saw your comment and noticed you are in Jersey, where I am originally from.

      I've tried your cloaking form; now where do I put the results? Please PM me since I've gone OT in this thread ;-).

      Yes I've made a living "online" for many years.

      But I really started making great money when I started selling my internet marketing services to ordinary brick and mortar businesses.

      So I was providing mainly online solutions for those businesses (even though I did integrate some of their online and offline marketing).

      I also sold my copywriting services to quite a few leading internet marketers (strangely enough that process was VERY similar to selling my internet marketing services to local businesses but that could just be me).

      I love the freedom of this lifestyle but I know it's not for everyone.

      For example my wife doesn't like spending that many hours behind a computer so she pursues other interests even though she'd almost certainly make more money working online full time.

      I hope that helps.

      Kindest regards,
      Andrew Cavanagh

    Most of my income is still from offline business ventures, although I now have a plan in place to fully migrate from offline to fully online business activities. I do have a number of successful online businesses now, but want to focus solely doing business online with few exceptions.

    Also, I'll speak up for my buddy Diego who makes a great living on line along with our JavaBeans Matias and James, who also earn their living online (the latter two are both 18 - been doing it since they were 16).

    I've been making a living online as long as I've been making a living.

    I'm 24, just graduated with my bachelors degree, working on a masters at night. Paid off a $200,000 college education before I was out.

    I did try working for a while... went and worked as a software developer for Microsoft for 6 months while in college. Decided not to take the offer to stay after graduating, it's easier to just work for myself.

    I make six figures a year selling advertising services, a couple thousand a month selling subscriptions to web applications, and $46k in the past two months selling a WordPress plugin. Then there's the odd couple hundred a month from direct ad sales, AdSense, etc. And a couple hundred a month in affiliate commissions.

    If you want to see the sites... my blog and company's site are in my signature. I have no employees, and do all the product development, design, marketing and accounting myself.

    Buying and selling websites is my game and I'm doing very well. Don't be fooled into thinking people who make a lot of money online are special.

    Much like Andy Cavanaugh and some others here, I make my living selling my IM knowledge to offline businesses.

    My primary source of income is from selling ad placement (similar to Google Adwords) on a small network (nearly 5,000 sites generating 5.5 billion queries/month) of sites. The only tools i need are a computer, internet access and my Skype phone.

    As a sideline, some of my customers hire me to spruce up their websites, do on page SEO, write content and generally be their internet consultant. For one customer, I am his webmaster and have a one year contract to conduct a backlink building campaign.

    The advantage to my business model is that I get to interact with people on a personal basis instead of just communing with a computer all day.

    The disadvantage is that it requires constant involvement and can't be automated. If I don't work, I don't get paid.

    Over time, I will gradually shift to automated sources of income and phase out having to constantly turn the crank myself.

      There are numerous methodologies of course and what works for one might not work for someone else. Great posts in here. Kevin is dead on when it comes to an evergreen income that can't be taken from you.

      The key is to find something that you enjoy doing. I do some hands on stuff like my video service, but people who know me know that I have an ulterior motive, I am not doing videos for $10 each for the money. We are building a studio to do high end commercials and MTV type videos, that is where I am going with that.

      I have adapted to my ADHD and I use it as a tool instead of it being a handicap and it allows me to accomplish multiple tasks. I enjoy building and flipping websites, I am one of the top authors on the internet and I create my own products.

      The key is to find something and stick to it until you make money, most people just keep jumping around from one thing to the next and they never make any real income and get frustrated.

      Hope that helps,

      Gregg

      CPA in the internet marketing field means 'Cost Per Action'. It's being paid whenever someone takes an action like filling in a form with their email addy or their zip code, or applying for a credit card.

    Well, screw those guys that would criticize you for posting numbers in an inspiration thread!

    This is 100% from my websites.



    I'm 24, been doing business online since I was 12, BS in computer science, working on a masters degree.

    I've been online full time since January 2007. It was rough for the entire first year but then things slowly picked up and eventually they snowballed.

    I'm still working hard to get where I want to be but I am generating an income that works for me at this time.....I can pay my bills and still have money left over for fun things, which is a nice feeling after struggling that first year! Growing into this profession doesn't happen overnight or for some of us it doesn't even happen in the first year. But persistence, dedication and patience pays off in the end. lol

    Of course - I''m always working on new projects in an effort to increase my profits! So far so good. I have never regretted my decision to work online.

    My partner and I have been making a living online for 3 years now.

    Mainly eBay and freelance writing. Am now venturing into IM and creating our own products and well as some other bits and bobs.

    It's hard work (NEVER worked so hard in my life) but so rewarding and lovely to be able to wake up and think "sod it, its sunny and I'm gonna take the day off" instead of having to pull a "sicky" like the old employed days! lol

      I keep the fridge full and the bills paid.

      Copywriting, consulting (offline and online), promotions, content production and procurement, various affiliate and Adsense sites/blogs humming along in the background.

      I don't have an impressive screen shot (and I don't really like getting into specifics with respect to earnings), but we're doing better than ever... and the numbers are growing.

      This is a great thread. Not only does it give those who are just starting out some hope that they can "break through", it also shows the diversity of methods people are using to generate an income.

    If you have an existing blog which has high number of hits, put up AdSense to it and start making few bucks with that.

    Add me to the list, as I make my living online.
    Article marketing, free ads ect. I'm in a very competitive niche but working at it every day is giving me a solid foothold.

    I have one main website with depth to it. I keep adding and really helps out getting listed under bunches of keywords and key phrases.

    Making a living from IMing is doable - just do work!
