5 Best Ways to Make Money Online in 2015

1. Affiliate marketing

make money affiliate marketingAffiliate marketing is my personal favorite, not because you can make insane amounts of money but because this is the only way that you can control.

If you don’t know what affiliate marketing is then it’s very simple to understand.

For example, a merchant wants to sell his product so he decides to give a certain percentage as a commission to anyone who helps him sell it. You become an affiliate with that product and for every sale that you make, you earn a certain percentage of the sale amount.

And the more efforts you put in, the more sales you will make and your earnings will be a lot more. That’s the reason I consider Affiliate marketing as the best way to make money online.

You can try different approaches with affiliate marketing like you can build niche sites promoting a particular product or use your email list to recommend a product to your readers. I am not a big fan of email marketing but it works much better than other ways.

The best way that works is promoting the products and services to your readers that you personally use. Pat Flynn is a great example in this case because he makes a ton of money by promoting products that he uses.

2. Google Adsense

Google Adsense is an advertising platform that serves third-party ads on your blogs and websites and pays you money for every click on those ads. It was quite easy to make money with it in its beginning days but in the more recent years, it has become strict and it’s not that easy to use it.

Getting approved with Google Adsense is the biggest hurdle between you and your passive income. But once you get approved with the service, you can easily add the ad banners on your site and monetize your traffic. If you are planning on applying for Adsense, then you might want to take care of a few things before applying.

It doesn’t mean that you need a high traffic blog to earn huge income. It all depends on the CTR (Click-through Rate) and CPC (Cost Per Click) and even if you get decent traffic, you can make much more income compared to other sites. So you need to focus on improving the Google Adsense CTR of your site and the CPC of the ads.

3. Sponsored Posts & Reviews

make money sponsored postsReviewing products is one of the biggest ways that many bloggers make money and it’s only about to grow because blogging is evolving and people are now diverting their attention to the bloggers to promote their products and services.

Sponsored posts are simple posts where a person or a company pays you to write a post about their products or mention it in your post with relevant content. This can be either a single article or a series of articles.

If you have a blog with decent rankings and authority then you will automatically attract the advertisers and make money by writing content on your site. You can also join various sites that act as a middle-man between you and the product owners.

The prices for sponsored posts may vary depending on the quality of the blog and so you can refer this article on how you should charge for such posts. You can even refer to this article by Erik Emanuelli as he tells you how to make money with sponsored posts.

4. Video Blogging

make money video bloggingVideo Blogging is picking up pace and more and more bloggers are now creating videos for their readers. There are various channels on YouTube on different topics that make a ton of money by creating original videos.

If you want an example, then the best one is MKBHD on YouTube. The channel is created by Marques Brownlee who publishes technology-based video reviews on his channel.  His channel currently has 2.1 million subscribers making him one of the best tech reviewer on the Internet.

If you think that you need some professional skills to become a successful video blogger then you need to see one of the biggest YouTube channel, PewDiePie, which boasts of a whopping 33.7 million subscribers. The owner of the channel, Felix Kjellberg plays games, records it and publishes it on his channel. Take a look at some of his videos and you won’t even understand how the channel is so popular.

But according to Wall Street Journal, PewDiePie generates around $4 million per year, which is huge.

So I think you get the picture. You don’t need to have a particular talent, you can create videos on anything that you like and publish it on YouTube.

5. Selling Apparel

make money selling apparelsIf you have been online for a while then you might have noticed that a lot of people are now selling t-shirts to people online using various sources like Facebook. The biggest player right now, in the market, is Teespring.

The idea behind Teespring is very simple – you create a design for a t-shirt, then you upload your design and set your goals and prices for that t-shirt. Then you bring traffic to your sales page and once people start buying your t-shirts and you hit your goal, the designs will go into print and will then be shipped to every one who ordered.

You don’t have to spend any money in creating an account or printing and selling the t-shirts. In fact, you don’t have to worry about any of these things. All you have to take care of is creating an appealing design and bringing relevant traffic to your designs, be it free traffic or paid, that’s up to you.

There have been a lot of success stories about people making it big with Teespring but the best one out there is about Hung K. who made thousands of dollars off a single design, using free traffic.

There are still many niches that you can target and seeing the market for the t-shirts, a lot of different sites have come up, like Fabrily, and a quick search on Google will give many results

4 Ways to Make More Money With Social Media Marketing

I'm sure you've heard plenty of stories about how people built million-dollar empires overnight using Facebook.

But if you ask real business owners, the fact is, many of them haven't figured out the "Facebook thing" and how to use social media to actually make money.

After reading this article, you'll have heard about four proven strategies that will help you make more business income, are easily implemented and will transform your business results.

Contrary to popular hype, this is not a magic wand for creating instant sales. However, it is a VERY important part of your overall marketing strategy.

Here are four proven tips to boost your business brand and grow your profits with this type of marketing:

1. Brand Visibility: This form of media is a powerful branding tool for your business. It allows you to instantly increase your business visibility, expand reach and develop relationships online.

It's a powerful way for people to check out what you are about; as you provide useful tips and information, it builds trust and rapport. That opens the door for connecting and engaging directly with your audience.

However many businesses are quick to set up a social media presence without much thought or planned effort.

Some important areas to pay close attention to are having a graphic designer create a cover image that matches your website branding; this can add polish and professionalism to your Facebook presence.

You'll want to take time to properly fill in your "About" section and profile to ensure you are sharing a consistent marketing message. And you want to definitely use a professional headshot for your profile pic.

Also make sure your content is specifically geared to your ideal target audience. A consistent brand message acts as a powerful tool to attract customers who are interested in what you have to offer.

2. Generating Website Traffic: Not just any lead is a good lead; social media helps you drive qualified traffic to your website.

Social media puts the prospects in charge; they choose and click on what interests them when it's convenient for them. Millennials in particular demand what they want, when they want it. The result is "hot leads" that are very interested in what you have to share. This is a much more effective approach than cold calling or "spam" email marketing.

Social media provides a platform for you to post content, freebies, and special offers that you can drive readers to visit your website to find out more.

Now Facebook features a Call to Action button that makes it easy to drive visitors to your website. It gives you the option to Book Now, Contact Us, Use App, Play Game, Shop Now, Sign Up, or Watch Video right on your page.

Additionally, staying at the top of the search engines to drive traffic for top keyword phrases can be difficult. That's why social media is a great traffic generation tool that is accessible to everyone. It's easy to use and you don't have to be a "tech geek" to implement this effectively.

3. Building your Database: Everyone knows the money is in the list and social media helps you build a robust marketing list. Starting an email marketing list from scratch can be challenging but social media allows you to build targeted lists of your ideal potential clients.

For example if you have three core customers: divorced women, midlife women, and empty nest women, you can create a separate special report written for each of these groups. By offering these free reports on social media and using targeted ad campaigns that require people to opt in to receive them, you are filling your list with potential core customers. You could take it one step further and sort your general audience into targeted email lists that you can email further resources, offers, and products for that unique audience.

Sharing more relevant communications and offerings can boost your conversion rates significantly. Take advantage of social media to share free audios, special reports, videos, checklists, and other tools that can help you build your email marketing list.

4. Lead Nurturing: This is the first step in relationship building. Getting that first exposure to a new prospect can be difficult and social media makes it easy.

Strive to be a genuinely caring and helpful person - not just someone trying to get the sale. If someone leaves a comment on your posts, you can continue the conversation by replying and sharing additional information.

Plus, anyone can LIKE your Facebook business page or share a Tweet. Once content is shared, it is exposed to that person's newsfeed, exposing you to a wider audience.

The next step is building upon that relationship. That's where blogging and email marketing comes in. Driving this type of traffic to your website allows you to continue the conversation. Fans can dive into content found on your blog that they find interesting. From there, they can sign up for a freebie you offer.

It takes multiple exposures to turn a stranger into a lead and ultimately drive a sale. This media is the handshake that begins building the rapport that builds the trust that leads to a sale.

By seeing social media as the first step in a series of exposures with your business, you can nurture that lead into a fan and ultimately a customer.

Start Increasing Your Revenues with this type of marketing Today

If you aren't embracing this form of media as part of your overall marketing, now's the time. Social media can help you build your brand, drive traffic, grow your marketing list, and nurture leads.

How to Start a Blog & Make Money Online - in 10 Easy Steps

6 Great Ways To Make Money Online

The year 2013 is barely out of the starting gate, and some finance experts already predict that the U.S. economy will make a roaring comeback this year. Of course, other pundits warn that we should be very worried.

Whatever happens, you can resolve to improve your personal economy this year.

Digital technology, combined with your talent and passion, is a money-making opportunity waiting to happen. Whether you're looking to pocket a little extra cash or significant part-time income, these ideas could put you on the road to a prosperous new year.

1. Sell art, crafts or collectibles online

If you have a talent for making jewelry, pottery or other crafts -- or just a knack for finding vintage gems at garage and estate sales -- consider selling your objects through an online storefront.

Etsy is the largest and most popular marketplace for handmade and vintage goods. You can also try ArtFire and Zibbet.

Have you designed a killer line of iPad cases or Kids' tees? Take a look at up-and-coming Redbubble. Want to display traditional art? Artbreak is a fast-growing online gallery for traditional artists -- and it's commission-free.

If you have an e-book, song, template, computer wallpaper or other kind of digital file to sell, take a look at commission-free UploadNSell. Amazon-owned CreateSpace can help indie authors, musicians and filmmakers sell works to online buyers.

2. Cash in on your photos

Licensing your best photos to microstock agencies such as iStockphoto, Shutterstock and Dreamstime is a great way for above-average photographers to make money. 

There's a lot of competition, but Web designers and other electronic publishers buy tens of thousands of photos every day to illustrate stories and ads. Research top-selling images at microstock sites to get a feel for what buyers want, and then do whatever you do best, whether that's food, portraits, sports or landscapes.

Illustrators and videographers can find opportunities in microstock, too.

If you're a fine-art photographer, try selling through print-on-demand sites such as Imagekind or Fine Art America. You set your price for various sizes, and the sites take a cut for printing, matting, framing and shipping to the customer.

3. Take on microjobs and quick tasks

Many folks pick up pocket money every day by doing quick field work assignments for companies, or doing odd jobs for local businesses and homeowners.

Businesses big and small post micro-projects through a free iPhone app called Gigwalk (an Android version is in the works). A winemaker, for example, might need someone in your town to visit a retailer and take a smartphone picture of a product display.

Homeowners across the U.S. browse the TaskRabbit website if they need help assembling Ikea furniture or grocery shopping. Local businesses also call on TaskRabbits when they need on-demand workers, delivery drivers or event staff. You do need to ace a video interview and a thorough background check in order to become a TaskRabbit.

If your friends look to you for fashion and shopping advice, check into becoming an affiliate for the shopping site Beso. It works the same way as a traditional blog, except you don’t need to think up 500 fresh words every day. You make a few cents every time friends and followers click on links you share within brief posts to social network sites.

4. Tutor and teach

Put your experience as a tutor or teacher to work on the Internet. All you need is a fast broadband connection and a way to video chat.

Online tutoring is also a good way for starving college and grad students to put food on the table. Specialists in finance, math and science are always in high demand. Sites such as Smarthinking or Tutor can help get you started.

Can you speak a foreign language fluently or have experience as a language tutor? Hang up a shingle at Verbalplanet. There's also a keen need to teach English as a second language to executives around the world.

5. Freelance

Freelancing is a time-honored way for writers and graphic designers to make money. It's not uncommon for administrative assistants, accountants, computer programmers and other professionals to also find freelance opportunities. Look at niche job sites such as Elance, Guru and FreelanceSwitch.

If you're a super-speedy typist, have a good ear and write well, you might be cut out for transcription work. Transcribers provide closed captioning for films and TV shows and written transcripts of academic presentations and focus groups. Visit Tigerfish to get started.

6. Telecommute

You don't have to be your own boss to work from home. You just need to find telecommuting opportunities. Regular job boards often list telecommuting work. Use "telecommuting" as a keyword. Also try Telework Recruiting or FlexJobs, which require small membership fees. The National Telecommuting Institute helps individuals with disabilities find telecommuting opportunities. It offers listings and advice.

It's Humiliating To Be A Newbie - But It's An Education

Damn these despicable gurus.
That's how I used to think when I was a newbie.

"Why are they emailing me all the time?"

"Why are they always trying to market something?"

"Why do they want my money?"

I couldn't see the irony back then.

You see - I didn't make the connection between these guru marketers and the fact they were marketing to me.

I didn't complain about teachers teaching or nurses nursing but if a marketer marketed - it made my blood boil.

I consumed as many products as I could.

I consumed and consumed.

I got hooked on learning and forgot about earning. It was humiliating to see the costs mounting up and the income flatlining.

Now I can see clearly that one of the best educations I got as a newbie is looking back at what marketers were doing.

Creating products. Creating websites. Marketing products. Making money.

It all makes sense.

And then I crossed the line from full-time consumer (broke) to full-time creator.

And it all starts by getting your first product-selling website online.

My associates John Thornhill and Dave Nicholson have gone through the process on camera (in just 60 minutes) to show you everything you need to do.
No stone is left unturned.
So if you want to step over onto the side of wealthy product owner then now is your big chance.
You need 60 minutes, a few bucks and a quick mouse-finger (my special bonus - see below - is ending real soon).

Gordon Ramsay Will Shoot Me For This.

I should feel guilty about last night but I don't...

You see - I cooked my special "Pasta al Quattro Formaggi" for some guests.

I made it look like a real slog but the truth is it was a doddle because (and don't tell!)...

...95% of the "cooking" came from opening a jar of pre-made top of the range, Sicilian sauce.

Now don't get me wrong.

I love cooking - it's an art form like no other. And when I have a few hours' to spare in a day I love nothing more than crafting something totally from scratch.

(Just ask my partner about the Eggplant Parmesan I'm famous for.)

But sometimes you only have 60 minutes to throw something together.

And if you're short on time, this is exactly what you should do with your internet marketing business.

Don't slave away for months trying to get sales when you can just open this jar of "Sales in 60 Minutes" (see link in Comments).
