Foolproof Ways to Make Money Online?

If you were to start fresh this month, what would you do to start earning money?

I have dabbled in almost every aspect of internet marketing over the last few years and I want to start earning some serious money over the next few months and into next year.

I am very experienced with creating websites, I have created about 150+ Wordpress based websites over the years and have recently started working with other platforms like OpenCart, Big Commerce, and Joomla to expand my skillset.

I did a bit of research and I came up with a few ideas, but I would love to hear your suggestions as well. My goal this month is $100, no matter if it comes form Adsense, website sales, e-commerce, anything, just something to get started.

1. Build a blog, add a ton of unique content, promote on various forums and websites, use Adsense for earnings.

2. Build drop-shipping websites for various products, it's more time consuming but the profits could be substantial if I find something that takes off.

3. Selling services. I can create beautiful websites, it's just a matter of finding someone to pay me for it.



What do you guys think? Any advice is greatly appreciated!

    Useful Services are fool proof (writing/Designing/promoting/etc)

    You could build the best blog in the world, doesn't mean it's going to make you money.

    you said dabbled... What worked in your dabbling? What did you get the most joy out of? Stick with that and work every angle of it that you can. Once you become an expert in that area then dabble somewhere else.

    Competition is fierce out here so to make it out of the hole you need to stand out and separate yourself.

    as far as selling services there are tons of ways to advertise that (sig line on here, Warriors for hire forum on here, Odesk, elance, fiver....The list goes on)

    Best of luck to you!

    You obviously have plenty of skills to offer. Go to website design forums and get involved, offer services on fiverr, write a guide on kindle, write articles and build your list. Go local and see if businesses need help getting a website online.

      internet marketing is not a business,
      just a medium to reach a lot of people.

      If you decide to sell a service
      get a few clients, then showcase your work
      for others who would buy such a service
      and build from there.

      Good Luck!

      Good plan to go local Kay.

      According to FORBES (Sept 2013) 76% of businesses in the US still don't have a website. And just in case anyone is thinking that this is a stationary market, the same study found that there are 543,000 (that's over half a million!!!!!) new businesses started every... what, year? No... every month in the US!

      Think of the potential for web services for this market alone. Every business needs hosting, a website, backup services, content, etc, and then needs to learn how to use their site for business.

    There are NO foolproof ways of making money online. You could have the greatest web design skills in the world but if you have terrible marketing skills, you will earn zero.

      Foolproof ways to make money are only for fools

      Well, if talking seriously...

      If I was starting my online entrepreneur venture today from scratch, I'm sure I'd start with something "foolproof" until I bruise enough to get on the right track - it's all about trial and error, it's all about knowing what works and what's not.

    The blog is your best bet for longevity. Tons of quality content over a month (2 a day) can net the traffic you need to hit your $100.

    Continue at a slower pace (to save your sanity)over the next 2 - 3 months and your traffic will skyrocket.

    If you build the best blog in your niche you'd have to be a complete marketing idiot to not be able to monetize it. In fact, if you can't monetize a blog you probably shouldn't be marketing

    Hope that helps,

    -Mike

    "I have dabbled in almost every aspect of internet marketing over the last few years and I want to start earning some serious money over the next few months and into next year. "

    Dabbling in many different aspects of IM is one sure way to kill your chances of making it.Keeping your head down and focusing on just one at a time is a much sounder approach.

  • AZJ0SH,

    Here's a plan for you and your Web development and design services:

    First, contact local and overseas startup companies with recently launched products, specifically those that are looking to expand to global markets and planning to use the Internet as the main platform to do this.

    Second, formulate irresistible custom Web development and design service packages at reasonable prices for each of them, and throw in mailing list subscription and management functionality, affiliate sign-up functionality and affiliate account management functionality as value-added offers.

    Third, negotiate a deal with each of them for offering your custom Web development and design service packages to their would-be affiliates, with them earning a certain percentage each time their affiliates purchase your Web development and design service packages, and as soon as you agree with all terms -- Integrate functionality into their websites that will make it quick and easy for their would-be affiliates to purchase your Web development and design services, as well as contact you for questions or inquiries regarding your service packages.

    Fourth, be prepared to grow your Web development and design service into an inhouse team that can help you conveniently accommodate bulk orders.

    Fifth, grow and expand your inhouse team to other services that would be relevant and valuable to them and their would-be affiliates who will purchase your Web development and design service packages. These other services may include onsite and offsite content development services (written content, ebooks, videos and so on), social media and search engine marketing services, search / social network / private PPC / PPM and advertorial / PR placement campaign development and management services, etc.

    The best foolproof method is to learn how to build websites then go get a high paying job building websites.

    C#, SQL, jQuery, AngularJS... all this stuff is in incredibly high demand right now. So much better than selling yourself on Fiverr for $5 a go.
