We have been the most successful selling information products like e-books and “how to” videos.  One of the best parts about creating these digital products is that overhead is extremely low and there’s nothing to ship.  The customer pays you and you email them a link to view your content. Everything is automated, so you can actually make money 24 hours a day.
Not only does YouTube reign as the most popular video sharing website on the Internet as of December 2013, it offers a variety of options for the savvy businessman looking to make money via video advertising. The website will place your pre-made advertisements before a streaming video begins, using special algorithms and viewer demographics to specially target potential customers according to your specifications. You only pay for an ad if a customer chooses to watch the entire ad you've marketed, giving you a broader chance of reaching your audience. Also, if you create your own video content and own the copyright to all materials you use, you can become a YouTube Partner and monetize your videos, allowing you to capitalize off your views and subsequent ad revenue.

The list of options when it comes to making money via the internet is literally limitless. But just like making money offline, it is no easy feat. It also takes time, energy, planning and persistence to succeed. If you’re into affiliate marketing or blog advertising for instance, you need to gain trust from search engines to get your blog or website rank high in the search engine results, as well as gain trust from online users for better conversions.


Ok I have a FB page with over 160k likes. I am being contacted by people wanting to pay me 250-300$ per ad. Is this possibly legit? It’s alot of different people so it makes me wonder, but seems more logically that it would be a scam. I’ve loaded fb business manager and I’m told by the latest that they want to run an ad campaign on the side of my page for payment of that to do so. I can not find anywhere that people talk about such so it is probably just a scam. Please advise on how to be sure. Thanks.


I have tosay that by joining the survey sites that you haveon your list i have madeover 300.00in the last 6 months doing surveys and watching videos so if you have the timetospend doingsurveys you wont makea whole lot of money but you will enjoy the survey opportunititys and every little bit will add up if you join all of these except panda research which is known for sending your money to someone elsed paypal account because it happened to me about 2 years ago andthey took 186.00 from me.
Still haven’t made any money on my aforementioned website I was talking about above. However, I started another website and I AM making money with that. Two very different niches lol. The one I am making money with will HAVE to be a higher amount eventually, but I am happy to be making money at all because I have tried this whole affiliate thing for years and never made ANY money. So selling $300 worth of stuff and making $35 makes me ecstatic lol
22. Advertising – This is definitely the most old-school way of earning money with a blog. It’s also starting to become the least common way. You can sell advertising spots directly on your site or you can sign up with a company like Google AdSense or Media.net. Either way, you won’t see a whole lot of money from ads until your views are well into the thousands each day.
Some websites pay for performance based on page views for virtually anything you want to write about if you have the proven experience and background to cover your beat. Many companies are looking for part-time bloggers to help them create high-value blog posts for their websites—thus, the opportunity for those who have a knack for writing compelling content. Most clients pay per post or on a retainer contract with a set number of posts delivered per month.
Comply with laws regulating SPAM. Familiarize yourself with the Federal Trade Commission’s (FTC’s) CAN-SPAM Act. This act specifies requirements for commercial emails, gives customers the option to opt out of receiving emails from you and imposes tough penalties for violations. It applies to all commercial email, including bulk email, individual commercial messages, business-to-business (B2B) commercial messages and emails sent to consumers.[23]
27. Sponsored/paid posts – Many blogs publish sponsored and paid posts. Sponsored posts are basically just posts about a specific brand, product or service. A company will pay you to publish an article about it. It’s similar with other paid posts as well. Your basically selling the spot for the article on your site. If you decide to take this route, you’ll want to build your traffic before you will get many offers.

Update: I used to recommend carousel style Amazon ads, but they don’t exist anymore. When I used them they converted about 3 times better than static style Amazon banner ads. I suggest using Native Shopping Ads instead which is essentially a replacement to the carousel style ads but allows for greater flexibility. You can display products by recommendation from the content, by search or with other options. Here is what the a Native Shopping Ad looks like for the keyword search “Chris Guthrie” Amazon displays the Kindle books I’ve written:
You wouldn’t install the same Google Analytics code on every single website you own right? Of course not, because you wouldn’t be able to tell how much traffic each of your websites were receiving individually. So the same thing can be said for tracking the money you make on your websites (and yet people still tell me they use only one Amazon tracking ID for all of their websites /facepalm). In the ,past I’ve gone so far as to create 15 different tracking ID’s for use on a single website.
If you’ve done any online surveys before, you’ve probably had a bad experience at some stage. Maybe you completed a survey, and then either never saw the promised money or were given a gift card to an obscure website you’d never heard of and had no interest in. Well, if you believe that cash is king then you can redeem your points for money using our Paypal redemption method. It’s not too good to be true, you really can get paid to take surveys! Want to know more? Read on and find out how easy it really is.
Etsy: While Etsy's popularity has declined recently, it's still a great resource for selling handmade items online. No need for complex ecommerce sites or merchant accounts or any sort of automation. The company takes a commission of every sale and charges a small listing fee per item. But many still use Etsy as their primary source of income. The best part is that you can also sell digital products on here such as poster designs. 
This job can take some time. You’ll need to find the books and be able to buy them cheap. But if you do, you may be able to make some decent money. Try to find popular textbooks for sale at cheap prices. BookScouter has a mobile app available too. The app helps you check buy offer prices right on the spot. You can check as you shop at local thrift stores, garage or other sales.
Thanks, these are truly amazing work ideas. Some of these can be practically done in my neighborhood even! Though they certainly can’t match an actual job, they’ll work as great and quick sources of income. I’ll plan doing at least one of the $100 jobs listed during weekends and holidays. A $400-$800 addition to income is something to be taken seriously.
Generating targeted traffic is a must, which you can succeed by the variety of ways The reason for monetization is very manageable to accomplish your purposes in the blogging world; we have to follow monetization and driving traffic strategies, we need to work hard. No matter how many obstacles come in any way, we just need to stick with; then we need determination because it’s not easy to make a successful blog and start getting enough traffic. 

Once you have that problem or need nailed, the next step is to validate that idea and make sure you’ve actually got customers who will pay for it. This means building a minimum viable product, getting objective feedback from real customers, incorporating updates, testing the market for demand, and getting pricing feedback to ensure there’s enough of a margin between your costs and what consumers are willing to pay.
Quick money also require work and effort. Well that in people minds perpetuates the image that there are no shortcuts. Especially when it comes to money which can not be easily and quickly earn unless you win on lottery. Even blogging is not so simple, you need a lot of time devote to writing content that will be valuable to users, positioning, etc. 

There is a huge online marketplace for gaming accounts, hold/coins, levelling and guides. Users sell to other users through sites like PlayerAuctions. They can auction off their virtual treasure for cold hard cash. Sites allow users to auction off entire accounts or just gaming gold/coins. Some of the easiest things to sell are WoW gold & Runescape gold.

One of the biggest issues you will face when you start running ads on your site is the competition. Depending on the kind of site you run, you could find that ads start being served that are in direct competition with what you are selling, or offering. For example, if you have a site dedicated to drop shipping a certain product, perhaps Disney toys or snowglobes, you could suddenly see ads for those products directing your visitors away from your site. This is not good for business. 
Choose a product that is relevant to your audience. Think about the traffic that will be visiting your blog. If you are writing a blog about sewing, it might not make sense to have affiliate links to weight lifting equipment. Chances are your readers wouldn’t be interested in that product. This means they would be less likely to click on the affiliate link, let alone purchase something through it.[32]
Amazon actually does hire home-based virtual customer service reps regularly! Pay is around $11 an hour and the job is usually reserved for people living in specific states. You can go to the careers page on their main site to find these jobs, just do a search for “work at home” in the keyword field. You can also read the Amazon work at home customer service review I wrote for more info on how it works.
Amazon sellers can make bank. Roughly 50 percent of the tech giant's revenue comes from third-party sellers like your future self. If you don't know where to start, check out Udemy, an online learning and teaching website with more than 65,000 courses on practically any subject. I found classes to help you learn what you need to know to start making money on Amazon — even if it's just enough to supplement your Prime shopping habits. According to what the students had to say, here are five of best. 
Add to that his declaring that in person he would "knock the guys teeth out" for not paying and if we didn't live in such a "pussified, politically correct world" things like deadbeat clients would be less of a problem. Ok, now that just sounds flat out juvenile and unprofessional - grow up, leave the badass act out and try not to alienate readers with distractions like that. After all, that kind of thing doesn't put dollars in your pocket.
Work more as a supplement to your current job – As mentioned in the link above, Mechanical Turk will pay less than the minimum wage in most cases. If you want to turn this gig into a full-time job, then be prepare to burn the hours answering surveys and doing data entry jobs. However, if you are just looking for productivity ways to spend your extra time, then Mechanical Turk may just be for you.
Amazon spends millions of dollars on improving the way they get people to convert. The fact that they provide a custom user experience for every person that goes to Online Shopping for Electronics, Apparel, Computers, Books, DVDs & more based on the buying behavior and viewing patterns tells me they know what it takes to close a sale. Some of the best closing advice I can give is to simply find ways to get your visitors onto the Online Shopping for Electronics, Apparel, Computers, Books, DVDs & more webpage and they’ll take care of the rest.

The survey is a front for getting hold of your name and other information (such as income and hobbies). Your info will then be given to numerous companies and you will be inundated by offers, either from the business you first contacted or by other marketing companies to which they sold your details. Your details will be used for identity theft. Scam artists can draw up a detailed picture of you from the information you provide, especially if you've also given credit card or bank details to pay them for their service. The 2013 Identity Fraud report stated that,


Hi satrap, I’m from Sri Lanka. I like to do a Online job for earning a extra cash so i joined so much Legitimate sites. but they don’t support because my country is Sri Lanka. so i have to chose what supporting and drop the not supporting sites. but some sites( It’s a few) half supporting, I don’t say it a full support, because that sites maybe don’t send surveys, they send offers only, Sweepstakes, some are only send signing up’s only. but i’m registered these sites now been only a two weeks. so i’m going to keep it up to see what’s going on Online making Money.

Once you are all set up, Live Ops has an excellent online training program that teaches you how to handle calls from customers. You will be taking calls for many different companies. When you start working, your phone will ring and a script will pop up on your screen. You simply read the script word for word and input customer information as you go along. If customers have questions, there is a section on your screen with FAQ’s and you are also logged into a virtual chat room should you need to ask for support from a supervisor.
20. Etsy – If you like to create arts and crafts, you can sell them on Etsy.It’s completely free to open an Etsy store. You simply sign up, post pictures of your creations and starting selling. You can choose your payment option, but PayPal is generally the easiest. Etsy makes it easy to sell and keep track of your inventory. There is a small listing fee and they take 3.5% of every sale you make.

One of the great things about the internet is that you can go into business for yourself from the comfort of your home. All you need is an internet connection, and you can make money online. Diving into the online world will free you from the daily 9 to 5 grind of a desk job and afford you more time to travel, indulge in hobbies, and spend time with the family.
My biggest frustration is how to drive my target to my site and links. I have to do YouTube videos as part of what I told the publisher I would do. I have cards in my YouTube videos to try to steer the traffic to my site where they can look at the offerings in a very organized fashion (which really is one of two places on the web that provide this for this publisher). I just want to work smarter instead of harder. I have had so many people thank me for the videos but it is not converting through the affiliate links. I can’t stop the YouTube videos because it is part of the agreement. Also posting the reviews on Amazon.com in the product reviews. I don’t think I can add a link to my site in product reviews.

There isn’t a better place on the internet. Skillshare comes built-in with an audience interested in learning online.


I make good money thieving. I only work a few hours a night, and you can make anything from a few hundred quid to a few thousand quid. You’ve got to have a bit of bottle and be able to look after yourself. If you think you’ve got thr guts to do it? I highly recommend it, I mean it’s got to be better that spending hour after hour on a PC, making small chance, how boring is that?

My teen daughter has been making money by selling designs through sites like CafePress and another popular site, Redbubble. She’s been selling her designs for over two years now. First, she’ll draw a design she thinks will sell. Then she uploads it to her Redbubble account. She has a few items for sale that contain popular phrases instead of pictures. 

You can also find work as a virtual assistant or remote admin that involves posting and monitoring ads for the person or company hiring you. This will look a lot more like a typical gig, though, and not like a scammy-feeling ad posted on a job board. You’ll need some experience with digital marketing, but once you learn the key benchmarks and factors that go into setting up a digital ad, offering an “ad monitoring” service would be a fairly easy but very valuable service for you to offer your clients.
Yes, unfortunately, most of these sites (like survey sites) don’t accept members from Egypt. They usually only cater to a few western countries mainly because the companies they conduct market research studies on their behalf, operate in a few western countries and so naturally they want feedback from their customers and not people living in other countries where they don’t even operate.
VIPKID provides an international learning experience to children in China between the ages 4-12. Headquartered in Beijing, the company offers fully immersive one-on-one English language instruction provided online by highly qualified teachers. The curriculum is based on the U.S. Common Core State Standards and uses a flipped-classroom approach to foster creativity and critical thinking skills.
Similar to selling on eBay and Craigslist, having a garage sale can give you an immediate cash infusion. Last time my parents had a garage sale I put out a bunch of my old clothes. I guess some lady bought up half of them and others took most of the rest, giving me $150 for stuff that I would have otherwise thrown out or donated. This could be a good option if you own a house. Anything you don’t sell at your garage sale you can put on eBay or Craigslist. If you don’t have a house, you will have to stick with eBay and Craigslist.
Sure, there are some options like blogging that can make you a full time living but it takes a lot of hard work and dedication. But the majority of these methods, like surveys, reviewing, money making apps and so on, are not going to help you quite your day job. They are great for earning a little side cash in your free time. There is no need for me to hype things up and tell you otherwise.
A couple of things; 1.for monetization, I know you can make money legally with other people’s rss feed content on your site; my question is if you create an rss feed for a site that doesn’t have one using something like page2rss.com, can you legally monetize that on your site? Does the content owner have to be in charge of the feed like a normal rss? Most likely I’m guessing.
If you have a propensity for writing and you can slay with your prose, consider writing an ebook. While the market has certainly become saturated as of late, books that help teach people about a technical topic still sell extremely well. This is a great source of passive income but does require a large amount of effort at the outset before any money is generated.
If you have experience with marketing, SEO, or a knack for getting people excited about the products and services you use on a regular basis, think about refining your skills and putting them to work making money online as a small business marketing consultant in your region—especially if you can become a local SEO expert and can help local clients rank higher in their search results.
Chris, I am glad you have had good fortune with amazon, I think I have chosen the wrong niche, it appears to be very competitive, I have had my site for 4 mo, and have made zero, however, it may not be all bad, I still work on content, and I do get indexing, however, I am at a loss on how to find keywords on ranking content; If I could find this out, then I could do some seo on any LSI keywords. I do agree about having a nice looking website, I paid far much less then you did, and I think I turned out with a site that looks very nice; If visitors do not think you are legit, or if you content looks like trash, then the will bounce before you can blink. I think once I can find those magic LSI keywords and rank them, then I think things will turn around, as I have also invested quite a bit up until this point.
I read through your post and found some interesting information, I am still struggling to make money online promoting affiliate products let alone having a product of my own, still need more information on this, just to give you a example of how good I am at affiliate marketing, I made $460 as an Amazon associate, it took me 2 years to make this money but still I refuse to give up, I will find a way. If you have more info you may share anytime.
Using Internet search technology, Google will serve ads on web pages that are based on the specific content of that web page. For instance, if someone is on a webpage that's covering the latest golf tournament, Google will serve ads for golf clubs or golfing attire. If you own that site, you get paid every time someone clicks on that ad. Not too shabby. This is usually called CPC (Cost Per Click) advertising.
Instead, look for trusted resources before starting your business on Amazon. "Spend time reading Amazon's help articles, and do some thorough online research on your specific category before setting up. Amazon has different rules and limitations depending on what you're selling," says Jordan Barnett, owner of Kapow Meggings, a company that sells men's leggings, based in Casper, Wyoming.

I’m using a free method as a result of my own researched to discover high value sites online for basically anything. The important thing is to tell Google what you’re looking for. Something like “Free Online Survey Sites That Pay”, then check page rank, and then both quality and quantity of visitors. You will find the article on how to apply this method on my Blog Titled – 2 Simple Research Tactics For Exponential Visitor Conversion At No Cost
While some might think that starting a blog is an arduous effort, when you understand the precise steps you need to take, it becomes far easier. It all starts in the decision of choosing a profitable niche and picking the right domain name. From there, you need to build your offers. You can easily sell things like mini-email courses, full-blown trainings, ebooks, and so on.

Well, what you do depends partly on what you have the skills to do. Obviously you can run a computer, but online jobs aren’t the only ones out there. You could also clean houses, paint, wash cars, babysit, walk dogs, or any other things someone needs help with and is willing to pay you to do. The thing to do is, keep an open mind and don’t hesitate to ask others if they need help. Then, use your money wisely. Don’t just spend it all. Save and invest some too.

I typically made between $500 and $1,000 a day every day during Black Friday Week, Cyber Monday and Cyber Week. It is lower during other holidays like Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Presidents Day, Valentines Day etc. but you can still promote various sales during these holidays as well. I target every holiday because Amazon creates an actual dedicated sales page every time one of these holidays come around. The deals shared on these pages are generally really good too.
I don’t know much about this specific company/website, but I looked at them just now and to be honest, it’s not sitting well with me. For starters, I couldn’t even figure out what the whole “business model” was based on. And that’s usually the case with Ponzi or pyramid schemes. I suspect its something along the lines of a pyramid scheme where you make money by bringing in other paid members, but I am not sure.
Measure engagement and conversions. Calculate the number of times your emails are opened by customers. Also, measure how many visits to your site are generated by each email campaign. Evaluate how often an opened email converts into a sale. Determine the total revenue earned by each email campaign. Use this information to design future email campaigns.[24]
You want to convince the reader to investigate their purchase options by the time they finish reading an article, which is why I’ll always include links to all of the products mentioned in a review at the end of the article. That way it’s an easy transition from learning about the product during your review and then at the end it’s time to make a purchase.

Global Test Market: Global Test Market is even older than Survey Junkie, starting in 1999. They’re a bit unique in that they pay you for testing products but also ask for feedback on products you already use around your home. Global TestMarket has paid out over $30 million in earnings since 2016. Gift card options include Amazon, plus many other stores.
Fancy yourself a good designer? Try your hand at creating a logo or other design that a company loves! 99 Designs is the most popular marketplace. Beware, however; you won’t get paid unless your logo wins against many others, which makes many designers unhappy. In my opinion, this is a great way for a budding designer to build a portfolio and learn quickly what clients love.
One of his favorite tools is Personal Capital, which enables him to manage his finances in just 15-minutes each month. If you sign up and link up an investment account with $1,000+ within 40 days, you get a $20 Amazon gift card. They also offer financial planning, such as a Retirement Planning Tool that can tell you if you're on track to retire when you want. It's free.
Ebay is a bellwether. It's been around since nearly the start of the online boom. But, like any other platform, success can seem fleeting if you don't know what you're doing. Selling items on eBay, professionally that is, can be an art form. Getting people interested in your auctions isn't always easy, especially when there's hefty competition and low demand for what you're selling.
In Paid Viewpoint, your opinion counts and you also get to count some money. Signing up is fast, easy and free and you are paid through PayPal. You get money as soon as you finish signing up- $1 is sent to you after completing this process. A feature called TraitScore enables you to earn more money for every answer in surveys.

Finally, when looking around for the right personal finance software that meets your needs, make sure that you’re comfortable with the program’s interface. It shouldn’t be expected that you recognize every single feature instantly, but if the features don’t seem readable and manageable to you, then you’re not as likely to use it and get the full benefits.
However, like anything else truly worthwhile, apps require a significant investment of your time or money upfront. If you don't have the skills, then you have to hire someone who can assist you in creating a great app. But first you need to come up with an idea that will sell. Do the proper market research and analytics to come up with the right app.
Have old electronics (smartphones, laptops, tablets, or computers) that you no longer use? Sell them on Gazelle. Search the site for the type of device you have and instantly receive an offer.
