Make Money Online: How Do You Personally Do It?

108 replies
Hey Warriors,

So with everyone from different areas of specialty, we've got quite a diverse forum. What are the primary ways you make money online?

What are ways you want to make money online? What are ways you failed at making money online?

I'd like to stimulate some discussion and just learn a bit more about everyone here.


I've got to say my least favorite way I made money online was by doing content creation. While I enjoy writing on topics that are interesting to me, I found the vast majority I wrote for others were quite monotonous. Although it was amongst the first things I did (eventually scaled to hiring VAs), it was certainly a huge stepping stone for me and where I am today.

      This just about sums it up...great advice...!!!

      Without a list you have no chance...Build one.

      My turning point was getting myself some good coaching and taking action on what your mentor tells you. I have more details on this on my blog AllanDevlin.com

    Ways of making money: Offering writing services, affiliate marketing (through article marketing).

    Ways I intend to make money: Product creation (in its infancy right now, will grow as I have more time).

    Failed ways of making money: I never failed on anything I took action on; but did spend a lot of time chasing magic buttons.

    Hi,
    Great ideas from all of you. I tried writing some articles on ezinearticles and it does help create authority backlinks even with just a few articles.
    Thinking of writing again and also on articlebase.

    Other than affiliate marketing with opt-in form for list building, I think amazon is a great way to start as there is a lot of traffic to amazon. Adsense is way too slow and I just insert it to my blogs.

    I guess the finale is to have your own product which I'm looking at soon.

    Thank you and all the best,
    Bobby Wan

      Unless you are talking about backlinks you received by having your articles syndicated, this is a lie. Posting your article on EZA nets you a non context relevant PR0 backlink. This is the equivalent of...well to be honest it is about as useful a backlink as not having one at all.

    Building list, adding value and then promoting valuable products to them.

    However, I have found that when it comes to making money online, it is really more about doing really good market and keyword research in the beginning rather than just being the method of doing it.

    For example, it is much more difficult to rank and get a lot of traffic in highly competitive areas like make money or weight loss, but if you can find other niches or micro niches, or micro, micro niches, then you will do much better.

      Rather than be a jack of all trades (master of none), we placed a focus on one area, press releases.

      We grew it over six years, through literal blood, sweat and tears and today enjoy reaping the benefits of hard work and knuckle-grinding effort.

      so most of you are in the IM niche I assume?

      You should step out of it if so, and find the great things that lay undiscovered internationally as well as more "longtail" niche areas.

    I've tried many things over the last couple years, not making more than a few hundred bucks total.

    This year I've been blessed since a more experience IMer reached out to help me and introduced me to the programs below which I'm making more money than my full-time job at. While I'm definitely ready to retire from my 9-5, I'm going to give it a few more months. Here are the 3 programs I'm involved in, which anyone can become involved in, and that make me very good nearly completely passive online income.

      I don't at the moment

      but you know what, I have just started and I am confident type of fellow, I have a tremendous kind of quiet self-belief and most things in my life that I have stuck at and not quit early on because I sucked - well eventually I made a success of those things

      and you know what I like internet marketing, I like what I am doing now which is basically making crappy videos, making crappy squeeze pages and writing crappy ebooks (crappy by the standards of seasoned internet marketers of course, i don't intentionally make crappy stuff), I like learning from my mistakes and I know each time I do those things I will get better and better

      so that is the key, not just to IM but in almost every walk of life, battle though the early stages, accept the criticism, learn from your mistakes and NEVER EVER GIVE UP, if you have the never ever give up mindset the truth is you will succeed but you must also accept you ain't going to be a millionaire after your first wordpress blog goes live and you tweet about it and create a few backlinks

    I currently work on consulting with offline businesses and provide them with online marketing services. However, at the same time, new opportunities have popped up ever since I've taken this leap of faith: including an offer to help a friend with an affiliate site he wants to set up, helping fellow Warriors with doing the same thing I am AND I've even gotten corporate job offers (thanks..but no thanks! lol).

    Once you've made money online and realize the infinite potential and avenues you can focus on..it's just a totally different lifestyle and eye-opening experience!

    I made my first money online writing reviews for companies that were paying $100+ for good ones. I then made a little bit more money with affiliate products on niche blogs. I never made any real money until I got into e commerce. I now own 5 e commerce websites, am almost done building the sixth and make more than double what I ever made at a "real job."

    I'd say the worst for me was the affiliate stuff. Too much work for too little return. I made far more per hour spent writing paid product reviews. There are those out there who are successful at affiliate marketing (to what degree, I don't know) but I'll stick to e commerce from now on - where I can sell real products and develop relationships with the customers.

    I make money through the writing services I offer.

    I tried affiliate marketing in the past and didn't get anywhere with it.

    I plan on writing some ebooks and PLR products of my own at some point.

    I currently use Fiverr and get some freelancing work but I'm currently working on a membership site which should hopefully generate a lot of revenue.

    I used to write articles. That was how I earned my first dollar. Now, I have a writing service with my own team of writers. I also create sites for passive income. I hope to get more success with my sites.

    Flippa. After trying everything from offline consulting, to lead rental sites, CPA, and Adsense, etc., I finally started making money selling no traffic/no revenue sites on Flippa.

    It was the only place I could go from having no money to $300 in 3 days.

    Once I scaled it up it has become quite a monthly income.

      I've never sold a site before. How simple/complicated is the process (sale, transfer, etc)?

    My favorite way to make money online is residual income affiliate programs that pay out a high commission. It enables me to focus on what I do best (driving traffic & creating high-converting follow-up systems) and lets me avoid the stuff that I don't like to do.

    Plus, when you promote residual income affiliate programs (such as monthly membership sites) you have to sell far less product in order to build up your income to a substantial level online.

    Would you rather make 200 sales & get a $40 one-time commission, or make 200 sales and have a $40 recurring commission (month after month).

    I'd prefer the 8k/month recurring income

    The best way to make money online
    in my opinion is to build an email list
    and market your products via email marketing.
    I have tried various ways but my highest recommendation
    is still to have your own mailing list.

    You can see two things from this thread.

    1) Everyone and their mother trying to sell you their "magic potion."
    2) Very many different ways to "make money" online being mentioned

    Regarding the magic potion... there isn't one and it'd be silly to assume anyone here knows what's best for you or any possible lurkers on this board. Spend an hour or two talking to me on the phone... about your family, morals, talents, hobbies, etc. Then "maybe" (and only maybe) I can give you an educated guess as to what is the best business to get into. My primary business model I guarantee you isn't best for 80% of the people here, and the skill-set I offer most here wouldn't even understand (some has to do with RF satellite testing for companies like Space Systems Loral, Lockheed Martin, Orbital, etc.). But that's the point. I wouldn't expect someone to model me, and you shouldn't expect to model someone else and expect their results.

    There are many different "ways" to make money, as this thread shows. But that really is irrelevant. You need to make a BUSINESS. Find out what works for you, what you're good at. If everyone here said article marketing was the easiest and best way to make money online... and you weren't a native English speaker... would becoming an article writer be appropriate for you? Of course not. That's silly.

    So look for what you're good at... what you can offer others as a business. The money will naturally come after you've setup this line of thinking. If you're only seeking "damn how can I get money" everyone will see that (especially your would-be possible customers). Instead say to yourself "what can I offer people? What am I good at?" Then look at marketing that talent/product/offer.

    The best way to make money online for me is by doing surveys and by promoting clickbank products. With surveys you can earn money right away but with clickbank products it may take some time but the results you will get at the end is out of this world. if you do it right!

    Hi,

    I dabbled in internet marketing, but never had the patience to see it through. I started writing articles, and eventually hired others to write for me - a few years down the line and I have turned it into a very profitable company.

    These days with my company on it's feet I have been thinking of a second avenue for income and am considering:

    1) Building hundreds/thousands of mini Adsense websites!
    2) Creating eBooks!
    3) Thinking of another helpful service to build up!

    I DON'T make any money online

    I provide article/copy writing services online and offline as well.

    All the money I make is now being invested In making a small army of (authority) niche affiliate sites to which I will get traffic via SEO and article syndication.

    My advice to anyone who is staring out would be --- Don't poke your head into the IM niche for a good year. Just pick one method and stick to it till you get it right!

    Good luck

    I wish I had figured out the affiliate marketing through email marketing a long time ago. I spent a lot of time trying to build ranking amazon review sites - and writing reviews about products is extremely boring in my opinion.

    Now I make money through my email mailing list, and for any newcomers out there this is the way to go if you want to build your online business.

    It's great that you only need a one page website to get people to join your list, it really cuts down the workload from normal amazon affiliate review sites.

    You do have to put in the work for the free incentives though, and that is where most of the work comes in. Until you have to start driving traffic...

    Personally you have to really invest some money to make money, you need to stay focused, and not give up just bc you do not see any results in days or even weeks. Find a great nich, do all of your research and create a product. however you can also outsource your work through many website and pay someone to do all the work for you.

    At one stage early in my career when my online income wasn't consistent, I was part of a business grant program run by the Australian government designed to assist entrepreneurs with money to pay for life's necessities so you can focus on growing your business. The idea is that when your business is successful you will eventually hire people and pay taxes, thus the government reaps a return on the investment.

    stop right now!

    Stop thinking about how can I make a squillion dollars in the next 30 days!

    No....no....no..... your doing it all wrong! LOL.

    Now I could leave it at that, but i will help you out today.

    People these days online, think you need to make money. NOPE! You need to do one thing and one thing only.

    What is that.

    HELP PEOPLE GET CLOSER TO THEIR GOALS....

    yes, do not think about money, think about people first, and how you can help them.

    DO THIS AND THE MONEY WILL COME TO YOU.

    sorry for shouting but it is important. You can scream...HEY YOU!...buy my chit, but in the end what are you really doing. Marketing hard and trying to get people to buy.

    If you do it softly and say, hey peter, oh you are having problems quitting SMOKING ey? oh really hey I have a 30 mins spare, sit down and I will tell you how I did it.

    You are helping them, and making them crave more. When peter goes away and does what you say, and it is helping him quit, and he sees results or getting him closer to quitting he will remember you and probably come back wanting more...or asking for more.

    See how it is done? You help people and the money will follow and leave good karma in everyones tracks. WIN / WIN? well I will let you be the judge of that. I just know I have been doing this whole online thing for many years and it is what works for me.

    I could have charged money for this stuff I just posted, but No, I give it away for free...because I want to help...but more because most the people in here will say...ppfffftttt right celente that does NOT work, or they will say.....cool....I will try that, but they never get around to trying it, cause it might seem like too much work or take too long to see results or money in their bank accounts..... ding ding....i think we have a winner!

    Peace guys and gals.
