There are literally hundreds of ways one can make money on the internet. The most important thing I can stress though is that just because you can make money online as an alternative to a job, you still have to put in hard work. You guys will see why I say that more as we move on.
I’ve spent the last five years of my life learning about what it takes to earn money online and the number of ways that you can do it. In that time I have learned a lot of helpful information as well as tips and techniques for becoming successful at it, and that’s what I want to share with you all today.
So if I had to choose my favorite ways to earn money online, they would be
1.) Affiliate Marketing
3.) and Local Marketing – also know as local SEO, client SEO, etc
You thought I was going to say MLM, didn’t you? 😉
Anyway, allow me dive into a little more detail about each so that you can get a better idea as to why I enjoy these three ways to make money over others.
I like affiliate marketing because I can get paid to promote other people’s products and services for a commission. I don’t have to create my own products or offer my own services and even better, I still get paid.
How it works, is you promote a product via ads, blogging, what have you, and you earn a percentage of each sale you make. It may not sound like much money but that all depends on whether you’re selling low, medium or high ticket products.
Personally, I like promoting high-ticket products that cost more. Sure the sales are harder, but you get paid a lot more in the end so it’s more than worth it.
I love creating blogs and monetizing them, and there are SO many ways that you can do this. My favorite, however, is to create a ton of helpful content on a topic I know well, then build a list of subscribers by email.
After building trust through my content, I can market to the lists I build, regardless of what I’m selling. There are good and bad ways to do this, but I keep my focus on building an email list for the long-term so I can gain more trust with people.
Ah, SEO. There are so many good ways to make money with it.
Local SEO, however, pertains to optimizing websites of local businesses like plumbers, contractors, etc, to show up in the search results where their potential customers are searching for services like theirs. Yep, you can totally get paid for providing services for local companies in your area, and it’s cool as hell.
