(That's why some of those products have such high gravities, of course: it's not that they're selling well - it's the fact that so many people just buy one copy, each through their own hoplink, so the gravity rises and rises and rises, though the sales numbers may actually be comparatively small, compared with many of the products I'm promoting with gravities around 5 or so, some of which are selling by the thousand. But I digress ...).
For faster, less technical effort, you can use an online course service, such as Udemy or SkillShare. Pay from these sites varies. For example, Udemy’s instructor pay depends on how the sale was generated (through its marketplace, an affiliate, or direct from you). The benefit to these resources is that you simply upload your course and the sites take care of selling it to their members/market, including payment processing. The downside is that they own the market and platform. Plus, you’re competing with other course providers, which can mean the need to reduce the price of your course to compete.
You can purchase a theme that is integrated with powerful course plugin and is suitable for your website. I can recommend one from the latest release theme listing on ThemeForest which is Lincoln WordPress Theme – amazing theme using latest Material Design. I have purchased this and it totally surpassed my expectations, given me the feeling of satisfaction and bring in a full-fledged website with amazing course listing and course detail page design.
Hi Derek, thank you for this very uplifting blog post. There are particularly two points that went straight to my mind- no 4. Why you should NEVER worry about “not being expert enough”. That’s my problem. I have been doing SEO and digital marketing for great brands for the last 8 years (with really good results), but there is always that thought- “I could be better!” “There are so many reputable experts”. “Am I good enough?” I hate the doubt so much! It’s good to know that I am not alone in this thinking, so I have to change that! And then no 5. I think it is also about the fact that we like to be guided. Free information out there can be a bit overwhelming and chaotic, whilst a designed and nicely structured course is easier to digest! Thank you for this post, it took my worries away (at least a little bit;)
Make sure to set-up your ecommerce site with Google and Bing Shopping. You’ll need to create a Google Merchant Center account and upload a product feed. There are great plugins for ecommerce platforms like Shopify and WooCommerce that will create an automated feed. Here is a link to guide you in the right direction to setting up a Google Shopping Feed.
Most of the people think that Clickbank is just another affiliate network, but that’s far from the truth. The platform is simply a large marketplace for product creators with a massive list of affiliates. Product creators pay Clickbank to list their product, Clickbank uses its massive affiliate follower base (me and you) to promote those products and everyone gets a cut. Simple, right?

Companies constantly need to update data. This does not require any skill. It’s imputing information into a required format. In most cases, you transfer data from one format to an upgraded one. Whichever is the case, it is worth your while and it pays well too. On average, a college student should be able to type a minimum of 100 words per minute. If you are faster, then it will be easier to make more money with data entry jobs. There is no investment required, aside from having an internet connection and a laptop.
If you have a budget and are willing to pay for traffic, you might want to explore investing in Facebook Ads, Google Adwords, Bing Ads or any of the other networks you can buy traffic from. Their first advantage is a double-edged sword. You can literally start receiving traffic within minutes from starting a campaign. But once you stop running the campaign, the “traffic tap” stops.
Student life is already hard and expensive enough as it is. Most of us had to balance classes and work, and were expected to have good grades. Work study jobs may not provide enough money, or it may all need to go to tuition, and finding a job for just the summer, or that fits into a limited schedule, can be difficult. But by using creativity, it’s entirely possible to get through college with some interesting work experience, great stories, and a little extra cash.

All those spam emails you get about making money from online surveys aren’t as crazy as they seem. You can in fact make money from taking surveys online. Will you make enough to pay the bills? Probably not. This work is best left for side money rather than something you rely on for rent. You can get paid different money for different types of surveys, but you will have to prove that you fit the demographic the survey is targeting. Answer the questions honestly and you will see which surveys you are qualified to take.


One thing, though, there is a big difference in making an app for Android and an app for iOS, and that is the fact that making an app for Google Play costs just 25$ one-off, making an app for iOS costs 99$ a year, so if you are making an app for iOS, I will recommend you to be a bit more confident about the way you will make money by your app, than if you are making an app for Android.


Believe it or not, there is a company out there that is willing to buy your junk mail. The company Small Business Knowledge Center is looking for individuals to send in their junk mail on a regular basis – specifically they are looking for offers relating to personal finance, insurance, investing, and more. When you do this, they will reward you with points that can be redeemed for gift cards to over 200 different retailers.
Hi Justin. I have lost count on the no of your videos I have downloaded on my laptop. I lost my job early this year and am looking out seriously for an online opportunity to cushion the effect on me pending the time I get another job. I am Adewunmi from Nigeria west Africa. But Justin I would like to ask you something which I have asked before but you didn’t reply or approve it. I will like to ask if you are aware of the numerous barrier of payment processing bedeviling we in Africa that engages in legitimate online business. Few years ago PayPal started operation in some African countries including Nigeria but it wasn’t helping for the fact that we can only send payments and not receive payments. So I will like to ask if you could help out on how we in this part of the world take the advantages opened for other citizens of the world. Thank you. You could also reach me via email. I sent Twitter at you sometimes ago also no response. Please try and always be of help because I believe that’s the reason you are doing all this. To touch and affect lives. God bless you real good. Cheers and I will be expecting a quick response.
Don’t do everything. People often have wrong mindsets when it comes to freelancing. They think they can earn more money when they receive more work order. It is essential to stick with your competencies and prioritize only the work that will help to bring in more assignments. Do a good job, leave your clients happy, work with other freelancers and develop a network of people who will recommend you and send work your way.
Selling notes — If you take great notes in class — or you want to get better at taking great notes — look into StudySoup. This is a website that pays you for your class notes and study guides. The perks of this site are two-fold — by putting together great notes and study guides, you’ll be learning your course material even better, AND you can get paid to do it! If StudySoup isn’t available for your college, there’s still nothing stopping you from selling your notes to classmates directly, too.
If you’re the vendor, then you create your own product and set it up using Clickbank’s system. They then list your product in their marketplace so that tens of thousands of affiliates can see you. They handle the tracking using unique tracking links and cookies so they know exactly where the sale came from and credit the referring account accordingly.
Selling textbooks can earn you some big bucks and really help out fellow students who may be looking for a discounted version of the book they need. And while the amount of money you can make from selling the books will largely depend on the books or classes themselves, it can be a nice way to make up some of the money you spent buying them in the first place.  

...but we need to communicate our progress everyday for at least 30 minutes in the morning. I'm located in Indonesia so our time zone is close to each other. Let's start freelance and if we work well together this can change to part-time or full-time employment. I'm looking for a long-term collaboration. Must be a good communicator and available on

The IM and MMO niches have higher refund-rates than the other 298-ish niches represented at ClickBank (but there's little point in promoting any of those as an affiliate anyway, for the reasons explained here). Other than that, the refund-rates vary enormously between different affiliates for the same products, because they're mostly determined by how the product is pre-sold.
We’ll go into more details regarding each step but let me give you a quick overview of each. The product/offer is the ClickBank product you’ll be promoting. This might seem like it’s simple enough but screwing up this step could potentially hinder you from earning a single cent because the other steps are built on top of it. Product research has its own separate section below.
Long-tail keywords are search phrases, rather than one or two words. If you are planning to promote an online poker course for example, you might do some keyword research and decide that the term "online poker course" has too much competition from existing websites, but articles based on things like "When to push during a sit-n-go" don't have as much competition and may yield more traffic.
Hi Ron. You CAN start for free. Use your phone to record the videos, screen casting software if you want to record a demo, and use an open platform like Udemy. These are free to use and test out your content. Good luck with creating your first course! The world needs what you have to teach! I believe everyone was born to teach something. There’s no better time to learn and teach online than there is today.
What better way to take your coding skills to the next level than by taking on real, actual coding jobs? Obviously you’re not going to want to jump right in to some kind of high-level, full-time position at a large corporation. What you can do, on the other hand, is to take on small freelance jobs, through websites like upwork.com, freelancer.com, and guru.com.
Become an Amazon Associate and then use Keyword planner to find an in-demand niche: With more than a million different products to choose from and up to 10% commission the sales you drive, Amazon’s affiliate program is a great place to get started. Browse their available products and see what connects with you. Or take it a step further and use Google’s Keyword Planner to quickly check how many people are searching for a specific term. With affiliate marketing, the more relevant traffic you can pull in, the more you’ll make off your site.
I was thinking print because I understand that market much better, as I come from that world. Also, there is an immense amount of competition online, specifically regarding PPC. Finally, print offers something which PPC ads do not IMO, which is, when people see something in a newspaper or magazine, they give it more weight. They tend to put more trust into it. Even though they shouldn’t, they assume because something is in print, it must be good and worthy. However…
Have you ever seen those roadside stands around Valentine's Day and Mother's Day? You know, the ones selling flowers and treats? Well, that could be you. As a college student, just head down to Costco and buy some flowers and holiday candy. Then, get permission to setup a stand near a busy intersection or on the side of a road. You'll double or triple your initial investment every holiday.
Try out freelancer.com maybe or some other platform, there's plenty out there.  Establish yourself on that platform and the money will flow in time. Underbid projects to gain a good rating, and leverage a good rating to increasingly make more and more money.  Learn more skills like Growth Hacking, UX Design, Wordpress, they will all make you more money.
It’s sometimes hard to comprehend just how much people love t-shirts. And with the right niche, marketing, and tools, you can create an online t-shirt business that makes you extra money online while you sleep. (Even Bloomberg and Forbes feature stories from entrepreneurs who've done just that.) Services like TeeSpring make it easier than ever to create a t-shirt drop-shipping business where they handle the sales, printing, and shipping, and you’re only responsible for design and marketing. For more tips, check out this simple guide to launching and marketing an online clothing store by my friends over at Selz.
I run my own company, but I guess you could still say I’m a freelancer since I’m flying solo. I’m also a dev (though I do design as well), not counting design work I clear mid 4 figures monthly (and low 4 figures part time just 18 months ago). I don’t use freelancing sites at all and I use all three techniques that I described in my response above.
I'm looking for content writers who can write articles of great quality. The minimum word count is 1000 words. The article has to be elaborate and should address a solution to the reader. Most of the articles are questions that readers want a solution to. We have a very stringent quality check. We tolerate neither plagiarism nor re-wording of articles from other websites. Google has evolve...
The audiobook industry is booming, yet only 5% of books ever get made into audio format. If you’ve got a background in acting, or if people have said you’ve got a voice made for the radio, you can make extra money recording audio versions of independent and popular books. Sites like ACX connect authors with audiobook performers. So, whether you’re an author looking for more ways to sell your book, or an actor/voice actor looking to make some extra income, you can sell your services online.
I’m just starting at Clickbank, so I’m a total newbie, but if I want to follow this strategy can I do it promoting just one product, for example, Category>Health & Fitness —> X product. Then, should i start a blog or something like that where i can talk about things related to the product subject? if so, do i have to start making entries about this recurrently? or I can opt for just making an article with a free ebook in exchange to user’s e-mails and follow the process?
Blogging is a great side hustle because you can do it at your own pace anywhere you want. It's not a quick and easy way to make money, but there are a lot of ways to make money side hustling while blogging. You can sell advertising, become an affiliate for other people's products, sell your own online product, and more. It does take time to build up an audience to be able to make a decent amount of money, but once you have a large following, you could earn over $15,000 per month or more (we do).
You should also read - Six ways to make 5000 $ USD per month through blogging , where I've mentioned methods to earn money through your blog. It contains true income report of people who makes more than 75,000 USD per month from their blogs . Programmers can always start programming blogs ,go through the article if you want to make some money through blogging.
The process also involves relatively little monetary investment (domain and hosting), which is great for getting started. At the same time, you don’t have to be the best programmer in the world to make money this way. After all, you’re using the website itself to get people to see programming information and tips. When people find your site valuable to them, you will eventually get some work orders and request for online training courses. 

I surprisingly get a lot of people asking to detail their car. I never intend to make a business of it, but I love doing it to my cars and people ask me to do it to theirs. All it takes is a cheap orbital buffer (mines a used craftsman) and a shop vac. I normally get easily $100 for a basic wash/wax/vac, or $200 to remove scratches and polish then wax the car.
What's truly exciting about this is how the internet has created economic opportunity for a single programmer working alone. You might not get rich, exactly, but $100k/year is an impressive salary in most areas of the United States. Roller Coaster Tycoon was the last traditionally published game created by a single programmer working alone. The author, Chris Sawyer, cleared $30 million for all the various version of the game released since 1999, according to financial documents released by the publisher. And just to put things in perspective, the publisher cleared $180 million. That's the "selling your soul" part.
Strangely this is now an option for almost anyone. Ideal for graphics designers, animators or creatives in general. You don’t have to be a techie anymore. It is HUGELY competitive, but there are now drag and drop tools that make it very easy to create games. But you need to have a clear business model, well researched topic and awesome graphics skills to pull it off. We live in the world of FREEMIUM games, so you only make money off in-app ads or purchases. You have to be very savvy. And ensure that the 7days after launch the app get’s heaps of glowing reviews while it is in the “Recent” release chart, but after that if it doesn’t it will fall into the abyss.
They're newbie friendly: Some affiliate networks are strict when it comes to accepting new affiliates. They're usually scared of fraudsters who can potentially jeopardize the network's relationships with their advertisers and vendors by using shady promotional techniques. While this cautiousness is generally a good thing, it also makes it hard for new affiliates to get into those networks. How can you start taking your baby steps and experimenting with things when you're not even allowed to promote any products?
My situation is I’m a Professor and Program Director for a Community College teaching massage therapy, a very in-demand field yet my college does little marketing. It’s my job to recruit students. I have a Facebook page and Twitter, and about 100+ followers on each. Can you see this type of system with funnels etc. working to help recruit potential students? If so, how? I feel like building content and creating opt ins should help, as we too are offering a “product”. Thanks for your time!

Are you a good teacher? Do you have an area of expertise that you teach or help others in already? You could create an online course around that topic and sell it. Sites like Udemy allow anyone to create an online course and then sell it through their platform. There are courses for everything, so don't worry if you think that your topic is too obscure.
Build up a following on your Instagram account and you could quickly be making extra money online. Major brands, gear companies, and even startups are willing to shell out $500-$5,000+ per post to get in front of your audience. While it’s getting harder and harder to build a massive Instagram audience, if you already have a solid niche and are posting quality content regularly, with a few small tweaks you can make yourself an influencer. Check out this awesome article from Shopify on how to build and grow your Instagram following to get started.
There are ready-made advertising and affiliate programs you can use to make money on your blog. Google Adsense is a complete package on the advertising side — basically all you need to do is sign up for an account, paste the ad code into your site, and you’re ready to go. It’s just about the lowest maintenance way to make money on a blog (get my book free here).
While the average pay per hour may vary depending on the location of your campus or surrounding area, baristas typically make around $10 to $15 per hour (generally in addition to tips). While Starbucks (SBUX) is almost always an option, check and see if your campus has a coffee shop -- it's a great way to get to know fellow students or faculty on campus.  

Definitely you can make good money. It takes time though. It’s not a quick fix. I began unconventionally. I was already unemployed, but running a top-rated eBay business selling Antiques, Vintage an Knick Knacks. It wasn’t for me so I kept it going while I tried my hand at Freelancing. Almost gave up and then I landed my first gig. Rest is history.


Web designers are incredibly valuable for technology companies.

Perhaps you should try different methods mentioned in this article and pick the one that works for you. I have also listed down few sites from where you can get some quick work and money will start pouring in. For the record, initially you might be making money in small chunks, but once you have mastered the field you are working on, you will be making huge.

Next, you’ll need the right tools. You can be as complicated or simple as you want depending on your comfort with audio equipment, but at the minimum you’ll want a microphone and software for recording your voice. Companies like Behringer, Blue, Focusrite, and others sell studio-quality plug-and-play podcast setups that can get you recording today.
If you don’t mind doing other people’s chores, then TaskRabbit is a great option for making money online. Earn extra income by walking your neighbor’s dog or mowing Mr. Smith’s lawn. It might seem like not the most lucrative option, but the top taskers reportedly earn as much as $7000 a month, making this a full-time way to make money online for some.
If you’re serious about making money selling things online, it’s pretty much impossible to not recommend Shopify. The platform gives you everything you need to get your online store up and running in less than a day including a custom domain, beautiful templates (so you don’t need design skills), secure payment options, and they can even take care of marketing and shipping for you. Whether you’re selling your own products, designs, or curating other products for people in your niche, Shopify is the best option for powering your online store.
The drawback is that it’s slow at first, it could take 2-3+ months to see your first sale if that is your main traffic source. It’s also tedious in the sense that it requires a lot of effort link building, especially if you’re trying to rank for highly competitive keywords. For an in-depth SEO blueprint, check out our how to rank in Google guide for beginners.
Barter your services with friends. Do you spend more than you'd like getting your hair and nails done each month? Do you have a friend who can't resist the pastries at the coffee shop or who pays for a personal trainer? Think about what both you and your friends spend money on, and then see if there's a way for you to barter and trade services with each other in order to save money.
