Thanks for such a great resource! I also was having a hard time selecting the best one! I finally made up my mind after I went over all of the entries word for word, followed the links, and went to the sites mentioned on each submission . Whew! To me, the winner is Stuart Walker. As an aside, it is a tremendous feather in Stuart’s cap that he gave Matt Woodward similar tips that increased his business by 469% . Matt Woodward by 469% – unbelievable! I checked out both websites and saw why the tremendous increase.
This is so inspiring (as I am reading 8 of your posts right now)… is this really possible? As a young wife, recent college graduate, living overseas with my husband in the military, many of my plans/goals are upside down… I have zero job prospects here and already wanted to start a blog, this makes it that much more of a dream to start. Any suggestions?

Of course, there is a lot you can do to promote and market your Kindle book, so that it gets selling.  This is all stuff that can be learned on your own (just through searching the internet), or can be learned through investing in a course (again, costs money).  It will take you longer and require more effort to learn how to market your book on your own, but it IS possible (if you don't want to invest any money).
I enjoyed reading your post on how to build a niche site. niche or not, it is not as easy as people make it; whatever you think of doing; someone else is already doing it, and as markets get tougher, then everything else gets harder also; Most of my sites are amazon based, and no bucket of joy either; all of my amazon sites are in decline, so much that I am starting to think about dumping them, as they cost me more to keep them then what I am making….

Paige, many plug ins are free. Some are paid. I do have paid ones, but only a few. You will be able to get going after that, but you do want to purchase a theme. I’d suggest Genesis and a child theme. You can see all the things that I recommend here on my blogging resources page, most of which are free. 🙂 I would NOT suggest a free theme for someone who wants to make money blogging. That is something you want to pay for, along with hosting.
I love the idea and that they make it so easy because the retail world is due for this type of disruption. This doesn’t happen as much with jeans and other daily wear items but those things you wear less than half a dozen times, like more formal dresses or accessories, just collect dust. You might as well recapture some of the value by selling it. Thanks for sharing your experience!
Jeff, my friend, you sure know how to say and present things in a nice, attractive and very enticing way, or should I say in a way that motivates one to take action and believe that it can be done! Thanks for your posts, ideas and very good suggestions. I hope and will do my best to follow what you say and share, since I have never made a single dime on the internet, but I well know that thousands are living their own IM dream! I truly hope that with your expertise and motivation, I will be able, in due time to start, at least making $100 from the internet, because for me $100 would be a true success, then from there one can scale it and take it to the next level…I do need some help, guidance and solid counsels…I will be reading what you gave me with your download, thank you so very much! Keep the excellent work and information you’re sharing with everyone! Guillermo

I also am using Tumblr with my own custom domain since Tumblr allows for using custom domains free of charge. I am not familiar with SEO at all, with the exception of what it actually is. But other than that, I don’t understand how I would go about adjusting my site so that it is more successful in terms of SEO. I downloaded the plug-in you suggested, but have no idea how I even go about installing it or whatnot on my site. Do you have a tutorial for this?


After you’ve been freelancing for a few months, you should have some good samples, testimonials, and experience that will give you the leverage to start going after bigger and better-paying freelance opportunities. Remember to set up your digital footprint from the beginning, the majority of social media sites are free to join, as well as a basic blog from WordPress or Blogger. For more information on setting up your freelance business,
I suppose I should have said She instead of He, and I should not be surprised. Women are notorious for making sure someone is corrected. It is just so frustrating. This person wrote so much helpful information and after reading all that they had provided, this asshat thought to say…….Swagbucks isn’t instant? Really? Why even comment at all? You look so freaking inconsiderate. The age of entitlement……….ho hum. The planet is doomed.

If you’re a fitness buff and have the right combination of charisma and business sense, working as a part-time online personal trainer can be both physically and financially rewarding. Once you build up a reputation and client base for yourself, it could easily turn into a full-time endeavor for you.

As well, I'd recommend checking out this resource if you want to take this business idea seriously and get started with a business plan for your personal fitness trainer business today.

There are many ways to get people onto your list. Lead magnets are one such resource. For example, you can build ebooks, checklists and cheat sheets. But you can also do content upgrades, such as PDF versions of an article with added resources in them, four-part video training series, and more. Think about your audience and what you can offer them to better serve them, then treat them with some respect and you'll eventually reap the rewards.


Time and time again I’ve read that the most important part of building a niche website is research – and it’s true. It all starts with research. If you start with a keyword that is too competitive, or doesn’t have enough volume, then you are in for 6 months of disappointment. I recommend using a software like Long Tail Pro in order to get the best list of keywords as well as to understand their volume and competition. It is worth spending an extra few days to really test out some different keywords before making the commitment.
Because the fee is so small but the task takes so little time, the strategy is to do as many of them as possible. However, be sure to read the fine print because many of these companies have a minimum payout, meaning that if you earn $8.55 doing 20 micro jobs, you may have to wait until you’ve earned as much as $50 to actually get your money. Read more about some of the pitfalls of this kind of work.

People are turning to audio and visuals when it comes to technical subjects. However, you should consider doing an ebook first and turning it into an audiobook through a resource like Audible's ACX platform. You can hire a producer either through a royalty share program, so you don't have to shell out upfront cash, or you can do a pay-per-hour hire as well.


The first thing that you require is a method or strategy to be successful at making money with Kindle.  While investing in a course that can show you HOW to be successful from start to finish is ideal, it is not necessary.  There's plenty of people that have battled their ways to making money on Kindle by slowly figuring things out on their own and learning from trial and error.  There might be some answers you can dig up to things on certain message boards or blogs which can help you along the way, so it can be done.

To maximize the amount of traffic you get, you need to pick out TOPICS people are searching for in Google and tailor your content to these article topics and searches within your niche market. For example, if your niche is about ‘tennis’ you’ll want as many tennis related articles as possible, but you just don’t want quanity, you also want to focus those articles about specific areas of focus. You’ll also want to make sure your articles are about topics your website can easily rank for. This is called KEYWORD competition research and SEO.


Have lots opinions on what works and what doesn't on the web? Then you might just be right for a "career" in remote usability testing. Actually, no one really makes a career at it, but user testers can pick up some extra work reviewing websites or mobile applications that may still be in development. You don't even necessarily have to be very knowledgeable about the Internet because some developers want the beginner's point of view.
Really like the different views and how readers think of them (via the poll results). I think the best thing one can do once you sense the potential of your site, is to stick it out and stay tough during the hard times. I mean I was looking at the sporadic posting (in the initial months) on some of the popular blogs we read now. Few months later, you find the owner stuck with the site and with renewed energy, built more useful content and connections – which lead to more good things.
Running and charging for webinars can be a great way to build a following in your niche, demonstrate that you are an expert in your field, and make a profit. Hosting a webinar can be hard work. They need to first be promoted, provide original and valuable information, and include interactive elements so your audience can ask questions and engage with your topic. However, once you have built up a large blog following, each webinar can be extremely profitable.
Find a profitable niche: We’ve talked about this a lot. But, where are you most comfortable. What niche do your skills, values, and interests intersect? Do you have 10 years of experience as a technical writer? Do you have long-standing PR relationships that’ll be invaluable in helping startups launch a successful crowdfunding campaign? Determine what makes your value unique, and lean heavily on showcasing that strength to your potential clients.

Build up a following on your Instagram account and you could quickly be making extra money online. Major brands, gear companies, and even startups are willing to shell out $500-$5,000+ per post to get in front of your audience. While it’s getting harder and harder to build a massive Instagram audience, if you already have a solid niche and are posting quality content regularly, with a few small tweaks you can make yourself an influencer. Check out this awesome article from Shopify on how to build and grow your Instagram following to get started.

A lifestyle blogger writes about their everyday life, hobbies, and interests. From fashion, beauty tips, and male grooming, to food, restaurants, and travel, anything that you experience can be blogged about. And famous lifestyle bloggers can make big bucks. Once you have built up a following, there are many ways to make a profit. Add affiliate links to your website, promote sponsored services, create your own product range, and much more.
Also, the editors at Textbroker are extremely nit picky. During the time that I worked for them I received several reviews of my articles from the Textbroker editors in which they explained that they had rated one of my articles with a 3 instead of 4 because, in their opinion, I didn’t use the best phrasing for some concept that I was describing. (They would show me an exert from my article, and then tell me how they would have wrote the same thing, basically saying that I should have wrote it their way, and because I didn’t, my rating was lower.)
Next, you’ll need the right tools. You can be as complicated or simple as you want depending on your comfort with audio equipment, but at the minimum you’ll want a microphone and software for recording your voice. Companies like Behringer, Blue, Focusrite, and others sell studio-quality plug-and-play podcast setups that can get you recording today.

No matter what method you end up using to generate an income on the web, you need to adjust your mindset to help empower you rather than discourage you. The truth? Making money online can be fraught with avoidable pitfalls. There's no shortage to the rah-rah cheers of internet marketers looking to find ways to ensure they part you from your hard-earned cash. The trick? Cancel the noise and get to the real meat and potatoes, so to speak.


Use ClickFunnels to build a free-plus-shipping offer. Create a low-ticket front-end offer that will draw in the customers. On the next step of the funnel, hit them with your core offer. After that? An upsell. Maybe a down-sell if they don't take that. Maybe even a high-ticket up-sell at the very end. Once you get the hang of sales funnels, the sky really is the limit.
What isn't clear in the sales pitch is this: Once you've kept the CD-ROM for more than a few days, you start getting charged -- sometimes hundreds of dollars, just to have it in your possession. A lot of consumers who have fallen for this have reported difficulty in stopping the charges, and in returning the CD. It's a trap that's easy to fall into but hard to dig out of.
As long as there is still the written word, there will always be editors. Freelance editing and proofreading not only pays a decent hourly wage, it also gives you the chance to read about potentially interesting topics too. What's more, pursuing freelance writing & editing as a business idea can afford you a lifestyle that lets you travel the world as a digital nomad. You can find lots of job postings from companies and individuals in need of writing, proofreading, and editing services on Upwork, which makes this a high-demand opportunity to make money online.

Hi! Love this post! I have been thinking about starting a blog for a few months now. I quit my job to stay home with my kids after my second was born. I am hesitant to take the first step because I’m not 100% sure what my niche would be but I’ve also considered a lifestyle blog so it’s not just focused on one topic. I am also wondering what is the best way to get/increase page views? Any advice would be so appreciated.

I, like many other people, have had niche sites hit by Google before because of aggressive link building. By minimizing offsite SEO, you are lowering the risk your site will get hit while increasing ROI with easy keywords that your competition is not targeting; a win-win situation. A caveat to what I mentioned above is to do the process manually. Sure, there are tools to help aid in your keyword research phase, but nothing will ever beat human intuition. This is why I spend so much time digging up keywords, because other people are not. If you devote the time, results will come.
This isn’t to scare you off. I simply want you to know that this guide is going to focus solely on ways to make real, sustainable extra income online. Not just a few bucks. I want to share all the mistakes I've made that got me to where I am now so that you don’t have to go through them, and can build a successful online source of income for yourself.
Now, making money online should seem like a pleasurable activity. Why wouldn't we do just about anything to see things through, since it would be a major source of pleasure, right? Wrong. In the beginning, like anything else, we might get really excited about it. We might also set our hopes very high. But that all comes crashing down when we begin to fail.
Again, if your blog has a large reader base, then businesses may be interested in paying you to review their services or products. Not only will you get a free trial using whatever these businesses are selling, you will also get a fee for writing them a review and posting it to your site. Paid reviews (and other paid and sponsored content) can be big money, so advertise this service on your contact page to generate business.
Until you watch this important video. This product is missing some important things. Over all an outstanding product from reputable companies. You have the power to make realistic money if you follow simple steps that are left out of My Cash Freebies & Double My Cash Freebies. Don't worry I have the solution to make it work! And yes it's FREE, no money down, no credit card needed. We don't need or want your money unlike the scams out there that claim they will make you rich and still ask for money down.
You could also opt to use existing websites for making money. These include both active income and passive income methods. For example, you could sell some used items or invest in creating some digital designs that then can be sold on merchandise. Again, devote a sizable portion of your time to passive income so that you can slowly build up earnings that will arrive on autopilot without any extra added effort. 
WOW Thanks everyone, all these tips are great!! You guys have helped me out more than you know. I had no idea where to start, it was a bit overwhelming trying to think of ideas on my own, knowing there are so many scams, still kind of is but I'm sure I'll figure it out now, thanks to you guys.

Blogger, which you can set up for free in less than five minutes, automates Google AdSense so that you can make money with your blog by displaying ads and getting paid when people click on the ads. To make more money, set up an affiliate program (see below) for books, music, and more, and insert your affiliate links whenever you refer to those items. A good strategy to set you on the path to success is selecting a unique topic, writing intelligent copy, and telling all your friends. You'll be off to a better start with a targeted audience.
For beginners like myself , building niche websites has a huge learning curve: WordPress, keyword research, content creation, linking, monetization, etc. It can be easy to lose focus and motivation when trying to understand and apply all of these topics. My strategy going forward is to learn freelance skills first that I can start making money from immediately and then work on the more passive stuff like niche and ecommerce sites when I am already bringing in an income. However, I plan to blog about it all which is quickly developing into my new niche site 😉
Just click the link and get started now with $400+ profits a day or more legitimately. 5 years down the road if you pass this opportunity up, you'll be left wondering what life would have been like if you had just given this a shot.

I found this program after months of searching for something real, and it changed my life. Give it a shot, you have nothing to lose, and the world to gain. We'll see you on the other side.

Ratings. Whenever someone buys a book from you, they will have the opportunity to give the transaction a rating. This is when they’ll tell other potential buyers whether the book was in the condition that you described, whether it was mailed on time, and if your communications were pleasant and helpful. One bad rating can hamper sales, and a couple of them can downright stop them. Excel at customer service and your ratings will help your company grow.

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.
