Many big businesses are looking for social media influencers to become long-term ambassadors for their brand.

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.

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.

I’m not sure I understand the question entirely James, but I’ll do my best. From my experience, I firstly avoid any BROAD keywords out there, as they are very vague and do not really help me identify the niche: Health, weight loss, make money are all examples of keywords whose traffic data (which is huge) is something I would never rely on to make a site out of.

Decluttr is easy to use. Grab an unwanted item, check that Decluttr buys it (for instance: CDs are great, old clothing is not), and enter its barcode into Decluttr’s “valuation engine” or use your Decluttr smartphone app (iOS and Android) to scan your item directly. You’ll receive an instant price quote that you can accept or decline with no obligation. If you accept, just pack your items into a box large enough to fit them, slap a free Decluttr shipping label on it, and bring it to any authorized UPS location (including drop boxes, if your box contains fewer than 25 items). Decluttr issues your payment the day after your item arrives by PayPal, direct deposit, or paper check. There’s no practical limit to the number of items you can sell: each order is technically limited to 500 items, but you can create as many orders as you like in any given timeframe.

I do a mix of “no credit card needed” offers and trial offers that require a credit card. The ones that don’t require a credit card are easy, but you need to do about 10 or 15 of them to make it worth it. If you can average about $8 to 10 an hour doing these, then it’s worth your time. I like the ones that say “instant credit” because the money shows up quickly.

Do you have any advice on what theme I should use or any plugins out there that might make it easier for me?

Websites come and go with the Google algorithm, dominant market players are much tougher to unseat.
Alas, not all businesses have the capacity to run call-only ads. The good news: landing pages can just as, if not far more, effective. One mistake that we see far too many advertisers make is failing to customize their landing pages according to a keyword. Think of it this way: should the advertisement you attach to “make money online” direct a prospect to the same landing page as your landing page for “how can I work from home?” The answer is a hard no. By making your landing pages as relevant and targeted as possible, you increase the chances of driving a conversion that much higher. Plus, landing page relevance is a factor behind Quality Score—the Google metric that determines where your ads show and how much you pay per click.

Blogging is something that requires patience, persistence and discipline. It may mean writing everyday for over a year before you really start to see any money from it.

Big tip > when it comes to buying a domain name, although you often get a slight edge by having a country code top level domain (such as a .com.au), these will often require foreign residency to register so it can be a barrier to entry for you getting a site up and it also dramatically reduces the pool of potential buyers down the track if you want to flip the site. We’ve found that simply purchasing a generic.com domain and geotargeting via Google Webmaster Tools works fine and you’ll be able to rank in among and ccTLD domains in the serps just fine.
