This is another way of making income online. You can share your programming ideas and tips through your website(may be in the blog section). The design should be very pleasing and what you share inside the website should reflect your identity and skills. In fact you are branding yourself. You will get lots of reach in between programmers and other people of common interest. Share your portfolios too inside the website. Reply to the comments and clarify the doubts of the visitors regularly. This kind of interactions makes you popular in the circle, and amount of trust rises day by day which brings you income and clients in many ways.
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!
Awesome article! I think it is really important to have a part-time job. You can make some money and build character, not to mention some experience. When I was attending university I worked a part time job at the front desk and it certainly helped me make some walk around money that was steady. Also a lot of the time with these jobs you can make your own schedule.
Did you know that those people asking for your signature outside the grocery store are typically paid to get you to sign up? Contrary to popular belief, they aren't pushing politics because they care. They are pushing for your signature because they typically get $1-$2 per signature. If you could get 30 people to sign up per hour, you're making $30-$60 per hour. Not bad.
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.
@Josh: what you’re suggesting in reply to this comment isn’t realistic. A person on a minimalist lifestyle with no kids and maybe only a wife or GF needs to cover at least $500 USD a month(this is international average living expenses in 1st world countries where there is public transportation, add a hundred or two for fuel costs on a busy 25MPG car). This lifestyle is highly unlikely for pretty much anyone reading your blog..
Now, it’s time to start creating and uploading content. Make sure you’re using a high-enough quality camera (most smartphones will work but I’d suggest at least having a tripod so your footage isn’t shaky), but don’t worry about being perfect at first. The beauty of YouTube is that you can continue to test out different content and styles as you find what works for you. Instead, stick to a regular schedule to build up your subscriber base.
It is really great to see that you are replying quickly for all comments . I am in a stage where your valuable advice may change my life. from auguest 2011 onwards I am working in a web development company. and from november I am doing part time freelance works using Odesk.com . till this date I have finished about 9 tasks in odesk and maintains a 4.5/5 feedback score. In my company I have experience in working in symfony 1.4, joomla, vtiger crm. And in vtiger I have worked on wordpress pluggin, google map api, vtiger crm customisation. In odesk , now I am in a stage where people will choose me due my work history and low rate ($7/hour).
Balfour did all the filming and editing for her courses by herself. But it wasn’t easy. “The most difficult aspect is the video editing,” she says. “Like most people, I didn’t initially understand how to shoot video the right size, how to export it, upload it, and fix the noise.” She used the screen recording and video editing software Camtasia, which she describes as “pretty user-friendly, but it did take time.” All of her videos are screencasts – videos of her computer screen – but if you’re planning to do a “talking head” style video, you may want to hire a professional crew. “Those are more complex,” she says, “so I’d suggest you go into a studio and get good lighting and audio.”
I have a VERY old degree (back in the day when “object oriented” was exciting and new), working in VB/VBA, Java and a little C++, but I’ve not done any coding beyond custom excel functions in 10 years or so. I’m looking to get back into the game as part of a career change, part time and trying to be realistic with aspirations not much beyond pocket money at least for a while.
Start by taking other courses you’re interested in: Not only is this important competitor and opportunity analysis, but it also gives you an idea of how a course could or should look and feel. What’s the pacing like? Is it via email, video, in-person chats? Once you understand how you want your course to look, it’s time to decide what it should include. Those same courses are a great starting place. How can you make your course better or more interesting? Do you have experience others don’t?

In the past I would create videos that ranked instantly within minutes of being uploaded using a variety of different methods that would then get free traffic going to a presell lander that I build off free wordpress themes that lead to my clickbank hoplink. There are many launch notification sites that details contests for AFF launches that are coming up. It makes it really easy to launch jack their branded terms e.g. product + review, and then rank on page 1 in Google with a parasite property, YouTube video, or even on Adwords.
Register in least 10 forums and try to post at least 100 comments in every forum. However, don’t spam in the forum otherwise you account can get ban. If the forum is relevant to your product, you will surely earn commission in your first few days. Test the product if it is performing good, then post more comments, otherwise change the product and start promoting that one.
The more traffic you have, the more money you can make with ClickBank. In order to maximize your traffic, you should spend some time identifying commonly searched keywords that relate to the product you plan to sell. If you create articles and other content based on those keywords you can often get some traffic from search engines, especially if you target the less competitive long-tail keywords in your niche. 
College students just starting out with a fresh load of classes and assignments may be in need of tutoring, a study buddy, assignment review and critique, etc. If you’ve already taken a few classes, and especially classes in difficult subject areas like math and science, consider posting an on-campus flyer or Craigslist ad offering your academic skills for a given fee. Not only will you make some money but you’ll help ensure that a fellow student doesn’t fail a class for lack of help. Also, nothing helps you retain information like trying to teach it to others.

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.

To make money as a college student, consider tutoring other students or offering your services as a note-taker, typist, or proofreader. You can also visit your campus Career Center to apply for internships or enter academic competitions that offer monetary prizes. If you're interested in a more traditional job, apply to your school's work study program or venture off-campus to look for part-time work like babysitting, being a shop clerk, or waiting tables!


A student’s life may be tough sometimes. Especially, if he/she is of a strong sense of independence and studying far from his/her hometown. Pressure of asking money from parents and fulfill necessities is the main concern for students. Some of them may take part-time jobs. However, it will not be a good choice of earning money for students whose time is quite precious. It may be good news for students who want pocket money themselves without wasting too much time that the app comes!
If my piece of content is so unique and valuable around hiking backpack recommendations, that other reputable outdoor websites are willing to link to it and build the page’s authority, then I’d have a very real opportunity to rank high in organic search for these search terms (meaning, my page will come up first when someone searches for hiking backpacks). 

This can be very lucrative, specially when you know how to setup sales funnels, autoresponders and drive traffic through Facebook or Google Adwords. Although this is not for the faint hearted. It is great if you love people, and you are good at navigating difficult situations should they arise. But there is plenty of business out there, the majority of local business owners are warming up to the concept of digital marketing.

According to Udemy, there are over 65,000 classes on the platform. There are courses on almost every subject imaginable, including dog grooming, making gift baskets, computer programming, and editing photos. Although some of the best-selling courses focus on graphic design and programming, you can make lots of money teaching any subject. It just might take more work to market your course to potential students.

Dynamic retargeting ads will take your retargeting strategy to the next level. You’ll be able to serve retargeting ads based on the last ecommerce page the user visited on your site! So, if someone is interested in a pair of jeans from your boutique store, they’ll get served that exact product with the pricing. You can even entice them to come back with a special offer or discount!


Strong copy and clear call to actions: If they have a written sales page you’ll likely find that it’s very convincing and keeps pulling you in to read more. They’re often story-driven as well. The buy now button will be unmissable and the whole page will be directing your attention to it to complete the purchase. It leaves no doubt in the visitor’s mind on what should be done next.
