Over the years, I have come across countless ways and methods I could adapt to help me pay for extra expenses I made over the past few years like gas money, Christmas break, dinner out, buying gifts for family members, or even little costs that leads to day to day expenditures. I too can show you some of those similar ways.
My team and I have done a lot of A/B testings on making money in internet business since 2008, and we’ve found all tricks that fall under the following categories are still the most effective way.
Today’s post is a colossal list of 100 ways to earn extra cash online. Each listing is legit, have been thoroughly researched and tested. I will take you through the list, which falls under several categories, and explain better to make it much easier for you.
Section 1: Blogging & Website Ownership
A blog is like a personal website, with the sole aim of providing information to its readers, about a specific type of niche or variety of niches which is updated from time to time. This is one of the most common ways of getting money.
I know right, you are asking how you can get money from people just reading things you post? Well, that is where traffic comes in.
The goal is to get traffic and loyal readers who can be digesting your daily weekly or monthly contents. From getting the traffics, there is a whole lot of different ways you can make money.
We are going to look into this with the following list in this category.
Affiliate Marketing and PPC Ads
This is the easiest way you can make money online, a matter of fact, this is the most common way of making money online. First of all, you need to start your own blog; sounds hard right? Well sorry to disagree with you, it is actually very easy.
You can take less than 30 minutes to create an excellent blog; you can read about it in one of your previous posts: "How to Start & Create A Blog - 20 Min Step-By-Step Guide to Make Yours". But before that, you have to choose a topic you like.
Choosing a topic is the tricky part, you have to decide if you want an evergreen niche or a micro niche. You also have to go for something that is trending.
Well like I said earlier, everything about starting your own blog is on our previous post so you can check it out. But then again you ask, how can I make money with my blog with affiliate marketing and PPC.
Affiliate marketing is simply a way you can earn cash while promoting someone’s product. There are so many websites you can sign up for; those include ClickPromise, ClickBank etc.
Making money through PPC is no different from the later; the most common way is through Google’s AdSense.
PPC means Pay Per Click meaning if I opt-in and monetize my blog with AdSense when the adverts show on my page, I earn a commission for people who see or click on it.
Selling Courses on Your Authority Site
Making money online while selling online courses is one of the easy ways to make extra money with your blog site. Well, not just any site but an authority site.
An authority site is a website that has so much valuable information, which it is respected and recognized by knowledgeable people in your area of interest.
So if you want to make extra cash here, you should be able to build your website up to a reputation. Everything still boils down to starting your own blog first, so when that is done you, you would also want to raise the standard of your blog.
This is done by always thoroughly researching and producing extremely high-quality contents on your desired niche.
When your authority site stands, you can now decide to sell online courses related to that niche.
For example, I have an authority website on stock trading tips or skills; I do give out ordinary useful tips on stock trading on site, but not the sensitive or prominent ones that can be able to rake more funds.
So what I do is I give out tips and instructions which can help for free, and I charge for the ones which are prominent and can make money. I can put it in the form of courses to make it more formal then advertise to people to pay for it.
Selling an Ad Space
This is just like using Google AdSense, but there is more to this than that. If you have already started a blog and it has gotten enough traffic, or you want to start a blog and grow it up, you can make quick money by directly advertising companies and product on your site.
If your blog site is making waves in your topic of choice, most times companies come to meet with you directly to ask I you can advertise for them. Most especially, you can also walk up to or email companies with proof that your website traffic is reasonable.
This all boils down to you growing your reader base, this is because most companies only accept some sites with a certain amount of traffic, and also sites who’s niche are very much related to their products.
If you can have an agreement with them, they pay, and you add their source code t your site or banners or however they want you to do it for them.
Advertising on Your Forum Site
Opening a blog as I said earlier is easy, but in this case, a forum site. A forum site is an online discussion site in which people can hold conversations in the form of a posted message and talk on a particular thread or topic.
Most popular forum sites are Reddit, Quora, Nairaland, etc. Theses forum site tends to bring in traffic, especially stable traffic and people who regularly visit back the website to view the responses given by other forum members.
With this amount of traffic, you can be able to sell banner ads to companies or individuals. Most of the time, it is advisable to approach companies or people with similar products to your forum’s niche. Or better yet, just make the forum an evergreen one.
Selling Premium Memberships on Your Blog
The idea here is to start up a niche-specific forum site and try to build up the reader base, after that you can consider to opt in on selling a premium membership spot.
For example, you have a website with a niche talking on technologies; you can end up offering premium services that unlock exciting features then charge users to become elite members.
Speaking as A High-Profile Blog Authority
In this section, when you create a blog, you try as much as possible to grow your traffic. When increasing your blog traffic, you would want to follow some particular rules.
First of all, always produce quality contents. It is critical that when you are growing your blog, it has to be high in quality. This help keeps your readers, why? Because when you provide high-quality contents, you tend to gain the reader’s trust making them come back for more and more.
Secondly, you have to research your keywords. Keywords are great; it helps make your blog discoverable in search engines giving you the top spots, thereby gaining more publicity and getting more loyal readers, thirdly is the application of the keywords through SEO.
This is the utilization of your keywords to make your posts SEO-friendly. Remember no stuffing of your keywords. People read your posts, not robots.
When that is done, you will successfully be able to build your blog and gather more traffic. You can now be able to book engagement speaking engagements.
People will pay way more to hear you speak to them and talk to them on their own journey to being a successful blogger. Once recognized, Organizations and firms will call you for conferences and meetings to speak for them.
On your site, you can even put up an Ad where you can charge your readers to pay to meet with you.
Building Review Affiliate Sites
This one is a little bit tricky, but with much research and skills, you can definitely pull it off. The aim here is to build about 20 review sites then link them to an affiliate link. This can be a permanent site that does not need to be, and it doesn’t also have to be a huge site.
You can choose a niche or specific niches to base on, but all of them have to be connected to an affiliate link.
The goal here is when someone reads your posts or visits the review site, after reading they are directed to click the link taking them to where they can buy the products, and you can get a commission.
For example, I can create different sites for car parts home tools or kitchen tiles. Then I find an affiliate link from ClickBank or ClickPromise. I add it to my site about reviewing car parts while giving very tangible information about car parts.
If done well, each site can bring at least $50 per month, and make about 20 of those review sites can bring in a whole lot of fortune.
Creating A Modern News Site
Creating modern news sites has its tricks up its sleeves too. The main idea for creating this type of website is to try as much as possible not only to engage users with daily new published posts but also to link the old posts so they can get more views.
This type of website drives in a lot of traffic and can force readers to be hooked with its contents.
Things are arranged in a way that it shows recent posts, or posts having a similar topic or keywords with the previous posts.
On WordPress, templates, and plugins to help you achieve this goal are available. The home page of that template is arranged in a way that it has multiple news links, both old and new appearing instead of only the new ones appearing.
For example, you recently wrote something about a riot in a town. While you had a previous article or articles talking about another similar topic on either the riot or the city, it then displays in the recommended tab or the similar post tab. Also, recent articles published online will appear under recent post tab.
Creating A Group Blog
Following our steps on creating a new blog, on your WordPress, you would get the options of adding new authors or writers to it.
As the main Admin, you can be able to create WordPress usernames and passwords, then forward the details to your selected authors or writers. This is because you can get to keep your main login details as the main admin while your various authors can post while you review them.
This is very useful because the stress as a writer can be lifted from you while making your contents far bigger than you as a single writer publishing them. This also gives you the advantage of gaining more when you monetize the blog, from there, you can also pay your authors too.
Selling Guest Post Opportunities on Your Blog
Well, this boils down to building up your blog to a high authority on your specific niche of choice. When this is done, you can sell guest post opportunities for as much as $50 - $100 per post, depending on your blog's Domain Authority level.
When you are successful, everyone wants to associate with you, which also implies when your blog is successful, recommended by experts and popular among a certain niche community.
Every author that wants to be recognized in that niche can go as far as paying you money just to have his or her posts uploaded and them getting a rep in that niche.
Most successful blogs that practiced this method have been able to also produce experts and professionals, and have also made them more recognizable. It is like publicity for writers so they can prove their worth in the niche community.
Starting A Review Site for Other Sites
What all blogs need is publicity so why not make money publicizing other blogs? Well, in this aspect, the idea is for you to review other websites or products for a fee.
You can find advertisers willing to pay for this service by checking out sites like PayPerPost. This website, help bloggers, authors, and even content creators find advertisers willing to pay for or sponsor specific content.
For you to use this platform, you need a blog with specifically required authority created. This platform screens out obsolete blogs and disqualifies them for further use.
For example, you have a niche website, and you register on this platform or any other. The website ranks your blog with Google page rank and therefore allows you to get linked to people who pay to get their product reviewed or their site reviewed.
Creating Simple AdSense Sites
Creating an AdSense account can be a huge deal, looking at the new rules Google has laid out to limit unnecessary activities on their Google AdSense platform. You can refer to our previous post on how to make money with AdSense on your blog. But after that, you can still be making few bucks with this.
Well here, the idea is to be making close to $200 a day so what you have to do here is creating about 100 simple AdSense sites including Amazon links and affiliate links.
This generates multiple streams of incomes, and each site can be able to get at least $2 per day.
Yeah, I know it is not easy, but hard work pays off. When doing all these, you have to link it to a single AdSense account where all your money would be channeled to.
Section 2: Low Capital Online Businesses
Running a low capital online business is the best option for most people on a budget.
Less money is used to start-up, but it can be turned into a reasonable amount of cash flowing in.
Think of it as a pawn shop, most of the stuff in it was useless or were bought for a very low price, but when they are being sold again, they are sold at a very high reasonable price.
Let’s take a quick jump on what we can be able to do in this category.
Starting a Web Hosting Service
Starting a web hosting company is one of the best options out there if you have little capital or you are on a budget but you want something that can give you a benefiting return. You can buy a hosting reseller plan online, then mark up your price by 200% the amount you bought it, then sell it to clients that need to purchase web hosting services.
Selling Low-Cost Product on Amazon FBA
Amazon FBA stands for Fulfillment By Amazon. This is where Amazon takes care of all the stocks of a seller so that when a customer places the order, it by-passes the retailer or seller and goes straight to the customer from the Amazon warehouse.
You can create your own products for a very minimal amount of money, but it should definitely be up to standard, then try as much as possible to get your low-cost product on the Amazon FBA program.
Dropshipping on Alibaba
Alibaba is an online platform where distributors meet retailers. This is a platform where mostly distributors come to market their product. Making money with Alibaba is very likely without even touching the products or seeing them.
First of all, you have to research trending products. This can be done with various tools created by Google or other SEO companies.
When that is done, you then look for distributors of the found trending products and strike a deal with them creating a contract concerning the supply chain of the particular product.
Lastly, you put up your online shop space on Alibaba and advertise your products.
For example, you found a trending product like a shoe; you will then try and find the distributors of that particular shoe, then make a deal with them also putting up a shop space on Alibaba.
When a customer orders, you then message the distributors, they then send the products while the buyers pay you, after you can split the cash later on.
Providing SEO Services for Writers
Most writers want to take their writing to the next level, but they don’t have the necessary tools for article development, or can’t afford it because they don’t use it that often to opt into plans. SEMRush just has that type of tools needed.
The idea here is to pay for a SEMRush subscription, go on platforms where you can get a lot of writers, just like Upwork and gather them to individually pay you while offering them the unique services like premium keyword search and article development.
Rebranding An Almost Obsolete Website
Sometimes we face difficulties, right? Well, that is no different from huge but struggling sites. Most of them, due to inactivity or other problems, tend to lose touch with the real world and end up losing more readers than they are getting. At this point, the website is at the point of going extinct.
If you are very much talented in running an online business consultant or you know your way around reviving online traffics and bringing back the old readers and new ones, this is for you.
The idea is to create an online business consultancy, approach dying or struggling website, then offer to help turn the website around for a 50% ownership in revenue-sharing.
Section 3: Website Flipping
There is not much to say about this, but website flipping is the ability to create a website, make it successful then sell it for a higher price. On the other hand, the website might also be bought from other entrepreneurs then have it restructured and sold again.
Selling Your Creative Website
On this part, you have to do more of brainstorming. The idea here is having the ability to come up with a promising creative webpage so that your ideas can be sold for more money.
You can come up with any business model, or even a blog idea that you know would move far, and people would like it, build its momentum and wait for the right time to resell.
Websites like Flippa makes this possible. So build that creative business, get some momentum for the blog and make sure it will surely be acceptable, then auction your site at the flippa.com.
Selling Copies of Your Blog Article
Selling your blog article is very easy, but this depends on the niche you try to capitalize on. After getting a specific niche website, what next?
Well, it is time to fill those up with articles, create up to 20 articles in that your blog. Then the next step to think about is to fill the blog with up to 20 well-researched articles worthy of buying.
Most people in forums look for articles or copyrights to buy so the best option you have now is to sell in forums. Forums like Reddit and Quora are filled up with people willing a lot to buy your articles.
Selling Your Website to Investors like Google
It seems everyone is going into buying and selling websites and it looks like Google don’t want to be left out.
Google launched a program where they can be able to buy your company in the form of a website, for cash as much as $100 million. Wow, that’s a lot of money.
Also, you can be able to sell your start-up website to other willing investors.
Selling Other Peoples Website
If you don’t have a start-up website, you can also earn commissions just by selling other peoples website. Just like real estate agents broker houses and properties, you can also broker websites and help potential start-ups to sell off their ideas to willing investors.
First of all what you need to do is to find people ready to sell off their websites. In doing that, you would now be able to reach an agreement with them on the commission you get when you successfully find potential investors.
Next, you then find people willing to invest in start-ups so in this case, you are acting as a mediator. When that is successfully done, you might as well get a commission from both sides if they are satisfied enough.
Buying and Selling Domain Names
Domain flipping is a very lucrative business to do; this is the process of buying and selling domain name while making profits. As far as this is concerned, specific domain names are worth a lot of cash.
For example, hotel.com was sold for as much as $11 million, and business.com was sold for almost $7 million.
Now stumbling upon those types of domain names recently has been a long shot but you can still be making a reasonable amount of money while reselling other domain names.
To become a domain flipper, you need people with marketing skills as well as researching and negotiation skills. This whole process often takes quite a long period of time to learn.
First of all, before you start out, you need to know your budget, doing some financial calculation to determine your expenditure is very necessary.
Secondly, you need to choose a profitable niche and find hot keywords for that niche, next up you find relevant domain names related to your niche and keywords. After that, you can have little patience to research for a more profitable sale.
You can sell on websites like DNForum.com. This is a platform where people who buy domains come to auction their available profitable domain name for the reasonable amount of cash.
Selling Cloned websites
Flippa is a website for buying and selling of websites and domain names. A lot of these types of sites have developed today, but none of them is as exclusive as Flippa as it gains more publicity and traffics in the past few years.
Successful websites like Mark Zuckerberg’s Facemash has been sold there, and one of the highest sold sites, Photostock.com, has been sold for over $250,000.
The idea here is to pick a successful niche website that has been sold off on Flippa with a high revenue turn up, then try as much as possible to create an exact copy of that website with similar but different contents, to avoid plagiarism.
Your contents should follow the precise guidelines of the successful contents. The reason is that there is a high chance that websites like that can also be sold for a high amount of money.
Reselling A Website
This method is similar to the first method. The idea here is to look for sites with already generated revenues, then buy them and work on them.
Most people do get bored of their website while some just create a website and sell for a living, others just want to sell off their website because it is dying so you can take advantage of these and buy a website which already has generated revenues.
When you purchase these kinds of website, the next step you take is to optimize and improve on it. This can give you a head-on especially when you want to resell the website for a high amount of money.
When that is done, you can resell your site on platforms like flippa.com. Matter of fact, you can buy websites like this on flippa.com improve on it then sell it again on flippa.com for a higher rate.
Section 4: E-commerce
In this category, we will look at different ways you can make money just by selling products online.
This is a prominent way of making money online on the internet because with platforms where buyers come online to look for available products.
There is no doubt that your product can be sold just in a matter of 24 hours or some few days. You can turn all your unused or items you no longer use to cool cash by selling it to people who need to use it.
Selling Garage Sales Items on eBay
One time or the other, we all have a garage sale in the neighborhood, and we discover that handy stuff is sold for a tiny amount of money. Why don’t you take advantage of this and resell those junk garage sales for whole lot of money on eBay?
eBay is multinational E-commerce cooperation, which helps facilitates business to consumer or consumer to consumer sales through their website. In other words, eBay is an online website for consumers, distributor, and retailers to sell their goods online.
So the idea here is to visit the next garage sales and buy potential products that can be resold for a reasonable amount of cash, sign up for an eBay account then advertise your goods and wait for potential buyers as they flock in.
Selling Items Found at Home on eBay
You don’t have to go to a garage sale to even discover items that can be sold for a reasonable amount of cash on eBay; all you have to do is to look around.
A saying goes that one man’s meat is another man’s poison, so that item lying around your basement can be just what someone needs out there to complete his collections or might find out useful.
You can search around the house for products which are worth reselling, from your basement to your garage to your storage unit; there must be an item that is worth selling on eBay.
After that, you can clean it up and put an advert out there for sales on eBay or even Craiglist and your requirements. In a matter of few days, your item will be sold!
Helping Sell Items on eBay
Selling things on eBay is quite profitable, but what about if you don’t have things to actually sell.
Sometimes a family, neighbor or a friend who don’t actually know the ropes might want you to help him market the old item that can bring in a reasonable amount of cash for him/her. You can end up charging the person a small fraction of the commission fee for selling it on eBay.
eBay is the world’s online marketplace, and in no time, your items will be sold, and you can be getting that commission.
Selling Your Products on Shopify
Most of the times, we want to sell our products online, but it is actually difficult because creating a website for your products and getting publicity for that product is very hard. That is where an e-commerce website comes in, and Shopify is the best option to handle your needs.
Shopify is a Canada based e-commerce website which has made it easier for online sellers and marketers to be able to own their own website for the sole aim of selling their products.
This e-commerce website allows you to set up an online store, organize your products, customize your store, track and respond to orders or accept payments. The idea here is that if you are making your own products by yourself, this is the best e-commerce website to opt into.
Drop Shipping with Shopify
Drop shipping is a supply chain management process in which the retailer does not hold the products with him, but rather transfers to customers’ orders and shipment details to a manufacturer, wholesaler or retailer, who then does the shipping directly to the customer, and you as the merchant does not see the product.
The idea here is creating a dropshipping store on Shopify, but first of all, you need to find distributors or retailers. You can find that easily on Alibaba, but you have to be careful of scams. I advise you order a sample for yourself first before making decisions. Once that is done, you can start trading at once on your Shopify site.
Selling Unused Coupons on eBay
Everyone loves coupons right? Well, most people I know do. It can be a coupon to a free spar day or a price slash for a product on Cosco or Walmart. Well if you have any unused coupons that you can sell, why don’t you give it a try on eBay, trust me you can make few cash while doing it.
Section 5: Advertising
A few years ago, if you had asked me how to make more money, I could have replied to you with two options; either get a Job or get a second job. But now we know better.
There are different ways of making money only off the internet. To be clear, it is one of the 100 ways you could make cash on the internet. One of them we are going to elaborate on is advertising.
Companies and blogs pay a lot of money to get noticed or known, and this helps them to boost sales. So if companies are planning to boost some sales, why don’t you take advantage of it and also make money while you help them do that.
Below, let’s look at different ways you can earn through advertising.
Becoming an Ad Broker
This is the most accessible form of earning in this Category; this is because it just has to do with researching. You just have to be able to get good advertisers and willing publishers. If you know or can reach out to people who have a lot of social stand on their blogs or the social media channels, you can then try to find willing companies that want to advertise.
You don’t have to go through the stress of creating your own social popularity; you just have to connect people who have it and people who are willing to utilize it. You can contact companies through emailing or calling to know if they are interested in paying for your services then connecting them with the advertisers.
Buying Cheaper PPC Ads for Monetized AdSense Pages
PPC is a way of using search engine advertising to generate clicks for your website rather than to earn those clicks organically. Any time your ad is clicked, it sends a visitor to your site, and you pay small fees to the search engines.
There are companies who sell PPC for a small fraction of money. Companies like Jumpy, SEO inc., etc. the idea is to pay for a small amount of PPC advertising, then direct all the advertising to a page with higher value clicks, probably monetized with Google AdSense. Doing this, you earn more money from the monetized pages than you spent on buying the PPC.
Buying Traffic for An Affiliate Product
This can be a little tricky, but the idea is buying traffic from Google AdWords to channel it to an affiliate product. So in other words, you pay a small fraction of money to gain traffic, then direct it to affiliate products which make you more money than the cash spent to buy the traffic.
First off, to pull this off, you have to get registered in an affiliate website like ClickBank and get links of products you have to affiliate. Then, you need to create a landing page, promote the product review and place the affiliate link to the product you are trying to affiliate.
After that, take the link of the page to the Google AdWords campaign to send traffic to that page so that people can buy the products or you collect the information of people interested in further emailing.
Specializing in The Building of Websites Traffic
If you have the skills of channeling traffics to websites, this area can be elementary for you to tackle. Most website owners do not really know how to gain traffic for themselves, or they are not updated on the new ways to do that.
This method, involves you helping clients get more visitors for their websites. There are tools, and numerous approaches to do that. So specializing in it is something worth doing to help you gain experience and make money while doing it.
Starting An SEO Company
Starting an SEO company is an extensive choice with the sole aim of helping other websites and individuals rank higher in the search engines. It is also a job that is lucrative as to a lot of blogs, and companies are willing to pay higher for a higher rank in the search engine slots.
SEO is a long-term service, but clients expect short-termed results, so as someone who is planning of owning an SEO company, you have to partner with an advertising agency. This can go a long way for you because clients expect you to also rank for your own service.
Starting A Job Connecting Firm
Sometimes finding a job to suit your qualifications can be tiresome, and also companies who seek for jobs don’t always get people ready and qualified to their taste, but you can change that by starting a job connecting firm.
The idea is to partner up with companies that are putting out job vacancies out there. When that is done they can update you with vacant spots and the qualifications needed from people applying. People who are seeking jobs can pay for a small fraction of cash to also get connected too, and you can also receive commissions from companies who give out jobs.
Creating Your Own YouTube Channel
YouTube is a platform where individuals share videos. It also can be used as an advertising medium. In fact, most of the YouTube users make most of their wealth via advertising and endorsements. An endorsement is a public declaration of support for a product or service.
So the plan is to acquire a niche, e.g. reviewing products or talking about things, get a YouTube channel up and running, then try as much as possible to gain subscribers then finally landing on an endorsement deal. This is best when the company that you are endorsing is in the same line of niche within your channel, or you can find a way to link them both.
Offering Google AdWord Services
Most people want to use Google AdWord services but don’t have the time. It is complicated for them, or they spend so much on unnecessary keywords and other expenses. If you know your where about in Google Adword, you can be able to even create a firm helping websites manage their AdWord campaigns giving them a specific CPC price and charging a certain amount of management fee.
It can even be created in the form of a bundled service where customers can be able to subscribe for easy access.
Section 6: Social Media
Everyone uses social media, right? If you use the internet, you might have definitely signed up for one or two platforms at the time.
That’s why this is a powerful tool to make money because everyone is virtually on it.
In this category, you will be able to find a way to turn those social interactions into the fastest way of making money online.
Building a Facebook Application
A lot of people love to play games while using Facebook, well not really everyone but most people do actually. Some Facebook applications like Farmville are built for online recreation but can also be monetized to bring in profits.
If you can make applications like that, or you are willing to, that is your gold mine. Little recreational apps can sell small rewards and incentives to make the apps more accessible to use in exchange for real cash. For example, Farmville sells coins for real money during their gameplay.
Creating A Third Party App for Twitter
If you are into mobile app development, this is a safe haven for you. In this method, you can create an app that interacts with Twitter for various reasons like check for their followers or active followers. Most liked tweets and different other types of incentives. Then the developer can go on to monetize the app by adding extra services and charging for them. The developer can also sell coins for other uses.
Selling Your Product on Social Media
Building a large fan base on social media like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram can be a very hectic job to do but what happens when that is done successfully?
First of all, it becomes easier when your account has a huge fan base; this is because you can be able to sell anything, like literally anything.
Yes, yes, I get it, it’s tough to even get up your followers to 10,000, but this method is perfect for people who can be able to grow their follower base.
First of all, you need to select a niche theme relating to your product.
Secondly, you need to grow that page and finally try to publicize what you are selling to them. Another trick you can use is by posting a copy of your clients’ feedback and satisfaction.
Promoting Affiliate Links with Your YouTube Channel
If you have a YouTube channel with a reasonable amount of subscribers or viewers, you might consider going into this method. Also if you are thinking about going into starting a YouTube, or trying to build one up, you should also consider this method when you have successfully arrived at that.
When you get an affiliate link through an affiliate website, you can make videos about the product then put up the link in the descriptions and still talk about it in the video to ensure people check it out.
For example, I do get up to 10,000 to 100,000 views per video, so I register and get a link from ClickBank.
After that, I check out the product and it’s a blender, then I do a video about it or anything, using it or relating it on my Vlog. Then on the upload, I add the link in the description bar. That’s all, now sit back and watch the cash flow in.
Promoting MLM Products with Your YouTube Channel
Just like promoting affiliate links with your YouTube channel, you can also promote products or services from an MLM company.
An MLM (multi-level marketing) company is a controversial marketing strategy, where the revenue of the company is derived from non-salaried workforce selling the company’s product or services while the earnings of the participant are derived from a pyramid-shaped commission system.
So the idea is to join an MLM company and promote or sell its products with your YouTube channel. This gives way to more people buying the product from you or people signing up under you which earns you money at the end of the day.
Becoming A Social Media Influencer
Like I said earlier, thousands of followers can go a long way, mainly when you sell your products online but what happens when you get tens of thousands of followers?
Well, it is a quick way to make money online. This is because you can be able to attract companies and individual who wants you to advertise them or create awareness for them.
Social media apps like Instagram and Facebook are great ways to gain popularity over the internet and become a social media influencer. When joining any of the two, it is crucial to also acquire a pattern or niche so you won’t go off track while posting. It is also important to look for companies or to display ads in line with your niche.
