Ideas on Making Full-time Online Income?

by sunray
26 replies
I've been actively pursuing an online income for quite some years now. Made some websites (quantummindsuccess.com , nurseryrhymesmg.com , eurhos.com), which have generated a few hundred dollars from Adsense, Amazon and Clickbank.
Now I really need to have full online income, but I'm really out of ideas how to accomplish this. My existing websites just seem to be stuck on low traffic. I thought of offering services on Freelancer, as I can make decent Drupal websites, design logos etc. Could this be the answer, and give an income of let's say 2000 dollars per month? Or is it unrealistic, considering very low Asian salary level that dumps the market? Any help is appreciated!

    I think that the key to building a profitable is niche selection.

    As a minimum, that niche must have 'hungry buyers' and they must have a means to pay.

    Once you have found that niche all you have to do is offer them products and services that relate to whatever it is that they are looking for.

    What niche are you looking to go into? All you need is a good price and alot of backend products. Pick a niche, advertise, market for free, then take over.

    If you're making money with your current websites, why not just create more using the same methods as you did before and build up an arsenal until you reach your goals?

          In my honest opinion, you haven't truly learned how to effectively advertise yet. If I were you, I would take one product, service or website and practice effectively advertising it until it's successful. Don't take the easy route by jumping from one thing to the next like so many of us seem to do.

          Learning to effectively advertise or paying someone to effectively advertise for you is the true key to becoming a successful internet marketer. IMHO

          Wishing you much success,

      You can use your knowledge and create courses on Online Courses - Anytime, Anywhere | Udemy.

      Course 1:
      Howto create websites using Drupal

      Course 2:
      How to make logos

      People make way more than a decent living from it. It does not cost a lot to get started ($15 for screencast-o-matic.com and $40 to $50 for a decent microphone (I use Blue Microphones Snowflake USB Microphone)).

      Then there was a WSO recently that shows step by step how to do it.

      I'm guessing you're talking about my Udemy course, HP!

      I agree with HPGoodboy, you can begin creating courses on Udemy for free and, if they are good quality and you get good reviews, you can grow that into a passive income.

      Udemy does a great job of promoting your course and if you add in some basic IM promotion strategies, you can build a nice passive income.

      Hope this helps,

      Dave

    There's a ton of ways to make full time income online. Do you have startup capital at all? If so, you should look into CPA and PPC/CPM campaigns.

    If not, you could focus on finding freelance gigs and work on sending free traffic to blogs you post to every day.

    Either way, you HAVE to stick to it, you can't give up or you'll just be wasting your time. It doesn't happen overnight, remember.

    $2000 may be an unrealistic mark, especially for web design etc., but I could be wrong, too. It could depend on how you package and market yourself and your services. If you are fortunate to get a high-end client, you might hit that mark.

    I doubt you'd get around to it if you go to Freelancer.com (haven't heard a lot of fairy tales from there recently), and I can be banned for saying this, but it's the truth.

    You can offer your services in the Warrior for Hire section, though. I'd been lurking around that section and there are several web design service providers who (are) (may be) doing well.

    You can surely hit the 2 grand mark if you have your mind on it. To your success!

    I don't want to sound too harsh, but if you're not earning what you could call a full time income after been online for a few years then, it's perhaps time to look at another path?

    I've been in the online marketing business for just over five years and yes, I didn't make much in year one and two, but what I did do was get a feel for the marketplace and concentrate on things that were worthwhile and get rid of the BS. This enabled me to turn the corner in year three and I've never looked back.

    Some times in life you've just got to take a hard look at what you've done and admit that, it hasn't worked and move on. This kind of a sounds like that, from what you've said and rather than fling any more of your time and money at this business, perhaps it's time to move on with something different.

    Offering services on sites such as Freelancer and earning $2000+ is very doable. Moreso if you have a good command of English and don't come across as if you are working out of a donkey cart

    Set up a squeeze page and offer something for free. Use GetResponse as your autoresponder. Make your squeeze page look simple and beautiful, then add lots of value down your autoresponder.

    Now all you do is go to forums, blogs and so on related to your chosen niche. Add value to the community through posts, comments and so on, but link back to your squeeze page.

    On your autoresponder, pre-sell a solid product in your niche, but don't hard sell it; you need to keep adding value whether you are pre-selling or not. Thereafter, just pre-sell another product every three or so emails (and send out one email every 2-4 days).

    Within a month, you should see some solid results. Within a few months, you should be making at least $2K each month. Within a few years, you could be making 10 times that amount.

    The first thing you need to focus is on how to generate traffic.
    You need to have a good knowledge of getting traffic via SEO, Paid traffic or free traffic. Once you are confident in getting decent traffic, most of the problems will be solved automatically. As marketer the biggest issue is traffic, others can be solved yourself or with help of others.
    So again my advice is to give sometime to learn different traffic techniques.
    Good Luck

    I would build on what you have already. Your sites are already up and running. Drive traffic to them and start to tweak the marketing angle. Get visitors onto a email list and re-sell your affiliate products there. Build the email list. The Quantum Mind Success site is just crying out for a more obvious signup box for your email list. I would put a timed pop-over box on it to collect emails for the free ebook. The next step would be to create a backend subscription product. You could do very well doing audio interviews with some "names" in the mind / success training niche and offering them as a monthly program for say $27 a month.

    The BIG mistake most people make is not documenting everything they try, and everything they do online. As you go along you should be taking screenshots of changes you make to your site, of things you try and the results you get from the changes. This gives you the option at a later date when you eventually get to the point of making decent money of making a product around your success and selling that to the IM market.

    You can easily treat your Quantum Mind Success business as a case study and sell that as a product later on.

    DON'T start to jump from one thing to another just when you are seeing some success! Income takes time to build no matter what you are doing . If you change now you lose momentum in the thing your already successful at (your websites) and you start from scratch somewhere else.

    Play to your strengths. You have web development capabilities and graphic design skills. Use them to build your own sites - not working on someone else's projects.

    As far as traffic goes, I would start out using banner ads on content networks (Google and others). SEO takes so long to see any reliable results and the competition is fierce! Search the site here for banner ads advice.

    Good luck :-)

    My 2 cents on this topic:

    You have the knowledge, not just desire. You know how to make Drupal sites, logos, etc.
    There are plenty of ways to monetize this knowledge, from creating courses to making products and sell them online.

    So create something already and sell. Good luck

    You have marketable skills. So, sell services and use the money to build a list and sell something that you are interested in/know about. When the list grows (in terms of quality and quantity), you can easily make 20k a month and won't have to continue freelancing.

    First of all, well done for making some income, that is more than many get to!

    Perhaps re-visit your sites and think about changes.
    I took a look here: Quantum Mind Success | Changing Yourself Changes the World

    The site looks dated and your call to action just says Download Free Ebook.

    WHY SHOULD I?

    What benefits me from downloading your ebook, tell me in a nice image ad that I need to click, then use a slick pop up lightbox or something to remain on the page to fill out and then download.

    The focus of your site should be to get them on your list immediately.
    Then you can share more information, offer them affiliate products right away on the download page.

    With this niche alone if you build your funnel you can make a healthy monthly income. There are products in this niche that are high ticket which you could be paid on.

    Once you have gone through and maximized each of your sites, then think about the Udemy course idea as its always a great, make one time, earn for a long time approach.

    The other alternative is if your current sites actually make say $50 a month each, then you need 40 of them to get your monthly target

    Once you know your funnel converts from the little traffic you get already, then you can begin to scale and invest in ads to push more volume to your site as you will know the value of each subscriber by that time.

    All the best

    The answers provided by the fellow warriors is invaluable, work to your strengths like possibly running a course for building Drupal sites. Could you consider writing an ebook about it? Also have you thought of offering an offline solution for local businesses to help boost revenue?

    This never occured to me but I could get an entire Udemy course made for me. It is worth outsourcing IMHO. Does anyone know anybody good? I think there's a guy here on the forum who does product creation if not I will have to go looking for someone good to create a course. Also wouldn't the niche research matter. I'm sure by now a lot of niches are saturated. What do you think?
