Sean, your presentation is very comprehensive, especially for those who are looking to make extra income on the web. Your step-by-step tutorial is actually good as a “product development” stage of the overall business development, suitable for (aspiring) entrepreneurs looking to build a serious business online. If the niche site works we can grow it up for selling our own products or services.
Despite the political fallout surrounding GoDaddy, from a purely technical perspective, many of their sites load extremely slow(this could be the result of trying to cram as many sites on to the same shared server for maximum profitability). I know of several Web Designers that refuse to have their clients hosted on GoDaddy just for this reason alone. A few months ago, several sites that were hosted by GoDaddy went down and despite the rumors, they weren’t hacked; but, it was an internal technical issue as admitted by them. Not exactly a glowing testimonial as a reason to use their service.
Starting a podcast, like making a YouTube channel or blog, comes down to telling interesting stories and building an engaged audience. I’m probably sounding like a broken record by now, but you need a niche that you’re interested in and there’s already a demand for. Come up with a list of topics you’d like to talk about and then search iTunes charts, Google Trends and other podcast research sites like cast.market to see what’s currently out there and popular.
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.

For the starters, expert bloggers have been noted saying that most of them used a tried and tested method. For example, they created a niche which is familiar to their target audience and catered content and ad requirements which are completely user-oriented. Second, after consistently receiving a visitor list of around 10,000 per day, they focused on a leading advertising agency in the country who can pay them best. Many ad agencies offer easy selling options but only the best ones can change the face of affiliate marketing for you, for the better. Their high standards will eventually lead your business towards a good point and you’ll no more feel that you need cheap ad banners or just-for-the-sake-of-money ad servings. The biggest advantage is that they will provide reports of ad tracking (insights on revenue generation) through their mobile analytics platform.
You see, I built my very first website back in 2005 (over a decade ago) and I've been building these types of sites ever since as well as maintaining my own blog here at Niche Pursuits. You can read more about my qualifications to talk about this subject; however, I feel very confident that this truly is the only resource you will need to get your very first niche website up and earning.
The searches for keywords with quotes isn’t a measure of where your site is or for that matter how people will be searching, it’s a measure of EXACT competition and if you’re seeing your site on the first page for a keyword when quoted, it’s good, but you need to keep continuing the same process. This means you need to keep looking for low competition keywords using the same measurement tools I just explained about and writing more content, chasing more low competition keywords.
I encourage you to scour the Internet looking for ways on how to make money at home online. There won't be anything remotely as beneficial as this. You can look, it's not there! I am so confident of what I have to offer you, that I will reveal meaty details of my system on how to make money at home online for you absolutely free. But do understand I will leave out important key strategies that will make your efforts soar (fair enough?). Such as special tools, methods, business niche, ideas, strategies and more. This video is enough to raise your thought level to heights of success no other product can provide. This is not just a product, it is a ONE science!
My top tip is to not rush the keyword research phase. This is the most important part and you will save yourself a lot of time if you get it right in the beginning. Ensure you understand what constitutes a good buying keyword. Make sure you find lots of great longtails as well. Ideally, pick a topic that you know something about as it will make it much easier.
The more specific your keyword is to what the reader wants, the greater the conversion rate is going to be. This usually means less traffic per keyword. But, and this is a very big but!. The traffic for the more specific keyword has a much better chance of making you money. Because if you take the hard work out of researching and looking online for something someone wants, than it’s going to be easier to refer them onto the affiliate place where they can buy the item.
The how to make money at home online technique is this book is a fast start boot camp to the world of online marketing using familiar products of the Google family. This is for you if you want to learn how to market yourself, your services or a product online, train your staff to do effective social networking, sell your music, or just be your own boss.
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.
Welcome Ryan. 🙂 I’m so glad you find the information useful. You’ll want to apply to sponsor companies and for your site in particular, you’d want to pitch the local companies you want to work with. On my blogging resources page, under “Sponsored Posts Companies,” you can find links to my favorite 4 sponsored posts companies. There are many out there, some are scammy, so just be careful who you apply to. You can search around in Facebook groups to find out if a company is good as well.
Why do you have a fill out form with email & I put my email in it don’t take it this is crazy how can anyone do a dam job if it says there email is wrong when it’s not I’m sick & tried of all these dam scrams even take this shit down that’s fake are fixes the dam thing so people can do there job & get paid I’m looking for real home jobs that pay but when it comes to email & it’s says it’s wrong when it’s not it’s bullshit
Creating a video series and selling it as a digital download on your blog, much like an eBook, can be another great seller. A video course, teaching viewers a specific skill or how to achieve a particular activity, may well resonate with your audience. If you are going to go down this route then your videos need to be as professional as possible so you should consider investing in some video and lighting equipment, as well as editing software.
Here’s the deal… If your chosen niche keyword has a certain amount of competition, more than you would usually be happy with, but you are super passionate about the niche you’re thinking of getting involved in, go for it! In my mind passion will always overcome plain old competition. It’s the passion behind Zappos that’s made them the driving force behind shoe sales online – even though there are a ton of people selling shoes online.
Signing up with Google AdSense will enable you to make money from advertising on your blog. Google AdSense will place relevant ads around your site, and if your site visitors click on these ads, you will earn a fee. Although each click only amounts to small change, if your blog has high levels of traffic, this will quickly amount to a reasonable sum.
Survey Junkie is among the most straightforward survey sites out there, which puts them at the top of this list. All you have to do is sign up to be eligible for surveys. Once you complete a survey you earn a certain amount of points that you can exchange for cash paid directly to a PayPal account or you can redeem your points for gift cards. Super simple.
Another site worth checking out is BookScouter, which will check the selling price on 55 different vendors. The list will include the offer price, how they pay (Paypal, check, etc.) as well as whether they pay for shipping and under what terms. If you have a lot of books to sell, they can search up to 3000 ISBNs in a single request if you upgrade to BookScouter Pro. There is also historical prices too in case you want to review trends.
Even though these online jobs are ideal for people with no prior experience, it is always great to have side earners for a little spare change. I highly recommend signing up for Slice the Pie where I earn around $100 – $200 per month writing short music reviews, rating fashions, testing cell phone apps, and more. You can also earn a little extra by scanning your grocery receipts with Ibotta. Last month I earned an $258.00 sent immediately via Paypal.

You said that Amazon isn’t a good start for beginners, but what do you think of Azon Authority, hence in gives 90 days for the consumer, and if they pay within the 90 days, you will get your comission. And they have other things that stand a out. My question is, is this a scam-thing, because it is just too good to be true, I think. Well thank you for your time,

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?


Our biggest tip is to create your niche sites around brand and product name keywords where possible. One of the biggest obstacles niche site creators face is competing against the big authority sites when it comes to more generic “how to” keywords. And with the way Google is ranking sites these days it can be hard to out-rank the major players when it comes to topic-based keywords. However, if you stick to targeting the brand or product name keywords you will be able to out-rank most of the competition with some well written content and a few powerful back links.
Another popular and effective method to earning money from your website is to ad affiliate marketing links to your website. If someone purchases the product or service from the affiliate marketing link on your site you will receive a commission for the sale. This can be a great way to make big money especially if you are driving a lot of traffic to your site.
I'm a 25 year old, I live in a household of 4, which include my 65 year old Grandmother, My mentally ill mother, and My 9 year old brother, we have an income of $710 a month before bills are paid. As you would guess, I feel its up to me to provide some kind of income for the better of my family. I have been trying for a few years now to make money online, it seems like everything is a scam or you need money to get started which i don't have. I do a bit of graphic design, and digital art, but I don't feel i have enough knowledge nor skill to make good money out of it, I have an account on Fiver for my digital art (here a pic I did http://i.imgur.com/ai7eCFf.jpg ) but haven't got any hits. I have been into computers since I was 11 and built my own, I often find myself helping people fix their pc issues. Although I'm not very educated - book wise, I feel I am still capable of learning new things which could help me earn money online. If anyone has any advice or could help me I would be very grateful.

Theme and Content Get a proper theme, I recommend MyThemeShop and add some content on it. Don’t just add all the articles at once. Update the site once a week or twice. You can have a minimum of 10 articles to get your site ranked and stay at the top for a longer duration. If you feel that the site is performing well, you can add articles at regular intervals to keep it up.
Getting paid to write is more about talent than experience. So, needless to say, this is a very beginner-friendly way to earn money online. The road to freelance writing success isn’t always glamorous. But, nonetheless, anybody with a desire to write for a living can. Go into freelance writing with an open mind, and look at these entry-level writing sites as a paid writing internship — you’ll get to earn while honing your skills.
The first place to start is checking out Pat Flynn, the founder of Smart Passive Income. It’s a tremendous resource with over 145 free podcasts and blog posts where Pat shares his wins, losses, and lessons, and interviews guests who are making money online in numerous ways. He could easily charge a monthly membership fee to access this gold mine of content, but he gives it all away for free (or at least 99% of it).
I worked for teletech recently from home and asked to be moved into a different client because the one I was working for I could no longer deal with the customers yelling at me personally for something the company did to wrong them. I was told by my team leader she’d look into it, she got back to me and said we can’t move you to another client and said me asking for to be moved was quitting so I have no job now. No wonder there was over 100 people being hired each day?! They’d rather loose someone they trained for over a month and hire new.
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.
Mentorship. With sites like Etsy, it simply doesn’t make sense to reinvent the wheel when opening a shop. Instead, look to others who have been down the path and have learned the hard way what to do – and what not to do. Blogs like Handmadeology and EverythingEtsy.com offer hints and guidance for artists just looking to get started in this profitable home-based business.
Research other listings in your city on AirBnB and see what the going rate is for a place like yours. You could also just rent out a private room as well or even a bed in a shared room. In fact, that's how AirBnB got its start. However, you might find it hard in the beginning without reviews, but as long as you take really good care of your guests and provide a lot of value, the reviews will eventually come rolling in. 

I am sure you all are tired of the millions of scams and fake websites that claim you can make money from home. In a moment of weakness, you may have been tricked by one of these “infomercial-get-rich-quick” websites that promise you will make thousands of dollars per month. Then, you find out that there is always a catch or they keep billing you when they said it would only be a one-time fee. I know there are many stay-at-home moms and people just barely making it looking to make some extra cash. Fusion Cash is the only website that I have had good success with actually being paid for doing trial offers, taking surveys, and joining online clubs. 

White labeling products involves purchasing pre-made products from a supplier and then adding your own labeling and branding. Products could range from candles to gym equipment or even tea, but all will come without labels, allowing you to create your own new range of merchandise. Most suppliers will advertise the fact they offer white labeled goods on their websites, so pick your niche and then find the right supplier and product for you. Once labeled, products can be sold via sites like eBay and Amazon, or from your own eCommerce store (discussed in a moment).
First, congratulations on ranking a highly competitive and lucrative keyword. Since you were wondering aloud how best to cash in on it, I’d suggest that you create a much more prominent lead capture form and create a new list dedicated to the people who land on that particular page. That way, you can worry about monetization later and just keep the list warm in the meantime. You might want to consider an entire free email course devoted to making money online that these people can enroll in.
I’ve covered no-experience-necessary transcription jobs quite a bit already. If you think you’d like to give typing a try, check out these 19 transcription companies that will hire beginners. You might also want to read my complete beginner’s guide to work from home typing jobs. Both articles are a great place to start if you want to get paid to type — no experience required.

If you are a professional photographer, or have a real flair for photography, then selling your images on other sites could be an idea. This could be done alongside your own photography site, as it is a good way help get your work viewed by a wider audience. There are numerous stock image websites to contribute to, but choosing a popular high-end site like Shutterstock should ensure your photographs make you some money.

One of the best places to sell unwanted personal possessions is Decluttr, a website that buys used items directly from consumers. Unlike trade-in marketplaces such as Gazelle and auction websites such as eBay, Decluttr doesn’t act as a middleman between buyers and sellers. Rather, it’s best understood as a bulk buyer: an enterprise with deep pockets and an unsatiable appetite for used consumer products.


Getting businesses to advertise on your podcast, either at the beginning or end, or both, is a great way to create a revenue through podcasts. Most businesses won’t be keen to advertise on your podcast until you can prove a large number of listeners. Therefore, it is unlikely you will be able to start out from the get-go with sponsors. But once you accumulate regular listeners, or a high number of downloads from iTunes, you can start to sell advertising space on your podcasts.
I think there are a lot of mass link building strategies that will be effective for a period of time – especially private link networks, which are a bit of a different story. But most of those strategies will lose value over time at best, or ruin your site at worst. That’s why I do my very best to build links through good content and networking as much as possible.
For those with a large Twitter following, you can make money from your Tweets alone with Sponsored Tweets. You could be paid for sharing a business’s information, recommending restaurants or hotels, or tweeting pictures of you using or wearing products. As with all sponsored posts on social media, businesses will only be prepared to pay you to Tweet if you have a large following that you can influence. So work hard on building up a loyal fan base.

For Example: Using the tag search for marketing we can find all of the most popular links in the category. By scrolling down the page, we can see that “marketing” has 24,282 pages of material containing that tag. By viewing the tags that also associated with the “Marketing” tag, we can find the other “keywords” that real people often associate with our given term.
Marketing. When operating as a consultant, you won’t necessarily be marketing your company; you’ll be marketing yourself. You’ll have to “package” yourself in a way that makes people trust you. For instance, if you’re marketing yourself as a financial consultant, ask yourself why someone would trust you with their life savings, and then figure out a way to convey that to potential clients. It might be in the form of a brochure, a portfolio, a sales letter, or all three.

Considering that you have a finite amount of time, passive income should make up a large part of your work. And if you're serious about generating any semblance of income online, then passive income should be one of your sole goals and ambitions. Why? Simply this. Wouldn't you prefer to do the work one time and get paid repeatedly as opposed to relying on your time to generate that income?
The two popular ones are Poshmark and TheRealReal. Both make it dead simple to sell (and buy!) luxury items. The RealReal will pay you 60% of the sale price (more if you sell a lot) and Poshmark has a tiered commission structure. Sale prices under $15 pay a $2.95 flat fee and everything else is just 20%. Tradesy is another company and they take just 9%.
This is a simple method that ANYONE can do to make money online with no money needed.  Yes, you read that right.  The age old saying is “it takes money to make money” but I’m going to show you how that is not true.  I’m going to show you how I showed a friend of mine who was as a broke as a joke to make money online starting out with nothing.  Here’s the secret, become a middleman.  Now, that won’t satisfy you because you want to be spoon fed.  Fine, I’ll throw you a bone.  I’ll throw you a big bone.  Open wide, here it comes.
Again, not every post/low competition keyword you find will hit the bulls eye, but don’t dwell on this. Simply keep searching for more keywords & writing up excellent content. Overtime, you may even see old posts rise up in the ranks which you though would never appear on the first page. I speak from experience as this does happen more often than you think 🙂
17. Amazon – Have you heard of FBA? It stands for “Fulfilled by Amazon” and it’s getting pretty popular. Basically, you buy products (in bulk is best) and ship them to Amazon for them to store. When your products sell, Amazon packs them up, ships them out and sends you the money (after taking their cut). There are people making a full-time living from FBA, while others just do it for some extra money.
I have read this article and the ones linked backwards and forwards over the course of the last week. I had been stressing about bringing in extra income when I stumbled onto this post on Pinterest. I sat down and wrote out at LEAST 80 blog post ideas (enough to post three a week for a half a year before I run out of content.) I’ve checked out BlueHost in an effort to find out if the url I want was already in use or not. So I guess my question is, how do you start making money off of a blog? I mean, I have read your different articles on the matter and I’m still at a loss as to where to start without having foot traffic on my page in the beginning. Any advice would help so much. Thanks in advance!
Sounds easy eh? Well maybe not, do you even have an idea how many blogs and sites are targeting this keyword. Well I guess no otherwise I won’t see every other day a new blog just targeting this keyword. Well its funny isn’t it ? A newbie blogger who hasn’t made a cent online and is completely new to internet marketing and blogging starts out with the niche “make money online”. A man who is yet to make a single dime preaching like a guru and rewriting crappy blog posts dreaming after a month or two I will start earning a decent amount of bucks. Well if you are one of those noobs, then you really need to get a life.

Another thing I do not like about Textbroker: even when the client, whom you wrote a particular article for, absolutely loves what you wrote and gives you an excellent rating, quite often Textbroker will still rate the same article low, usually for nit picky things such as lacking just one or two comas, or, because they didn’t like the way you chose to phrase stuff within your article. Here again, if the client, who is actually paying for your work, is not only satisfied, but in fact, very happy with the article, who the heck are the Textbroker editors to say it is not good enough?!!!
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….

Job Boards. When you’re first starting out, you’ll have to go looking for work, and the best place to do that is on one of the online job boards. Places like Guru, Elance, Freelancer, and oDesk are today’s writers’ best friends. They allow individuals and businesses to post projects, and freelancers to bid on them. Take a look around the sites, sign up for the free access in the beginning, and then begin to place bids on the projects that interest you. It will take some trial and error to find your groove, but once you do, the jobs will start to roll in.

Thank you for writing this article. I am in serious need of extra income, and would love to start a blog. I’m not sure what I will talk about, but I do know I’m honest and real. I often feel like I can’t voice my true thoughts on other social media outlets, which frustrates me. I get bored with all the fictitious images that I feel most of us portray on social media outlets. My, ever present, thought about Facebook has been, “I wish I could make my page more unique/colorful/creative/artsy”. Maybe I’ve been missing my true calling all along. I’ve been told I should start a blog before. I think, with your help, I might just give it a whirl! Thank you so much for your advice. I would love to hear from you personally, if you have time.
If you are more confident in your skills, you can also market directly to websites and blogs. You can contact the sites by email to market your services. That will also enable you to select the specific types of sites that you are more comfortable working with. Since there are literally thousands of websites and blogs on the web, the potential market is limitless.
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.
It won’t be easy. I have made around 10 niche sites and have failed in 8 of them. The success ratio is again 80 – 20. You will never know which niche sites will bring you revenue until you give it a try. My experience tells me that small niche sites which have affiliate products and paid services around them convert the best. Google Adsense also works good for small niche sites but since Adsense depends heavily on traffic and pageviews, you will have to keep updating the site to get fresh traffic. Affiliate sales depends on reputation, authority and other things so if you can build a niche site and sell Affiliate products, it should work out well compared to a niche site which earns money only through Google Adsense and other contextual ads.
Be professional. When you submit a résumé, don’t type it in ALL CAPS and please don’t avoid the caps lock like the plague. Know how to use it without looking incompetent. Write in complete sentences with proper grammar. Of course, there will be exceptions, but even with the exceptions, you must keep it professional. You’re building their view of you.
Sell Items Online: Selling items on online websites like Ebay, Amazon, Shopify, Etsy, Craigslist, Facebook Marketplace and others, is a reliable way of generating some extra money. You can start your drop shipping business from the comfort of your own home. Buy from a cheap platform and sell to the customers at a profit. Fast turnaround. It will be your own low cost, online, home-based business.
 If you want to find some contract work, I recommend you check out some of the popular freelance portals. The most popular one tends to be Upwork. You can easily find design, writing, and coding contracts on there. At first, you will have to work for less to prove your reputation and skill set, but as you improve, you’ll land better, higher paying contracts.
I worked for World Travel Holdings until I had to stop working for personal reasons. They are the best company I’ve ever worked for. They make sure you are trained very well. They are always there for you and, you’re selling or servicing cruises!! You can win free cruises and the work is so fun. Wish I was still able to do this. Try them…they are awesome and they pay very well!!
