2. I’m having trouble generating a large list of base keywords. I tried to follow the example in Samara’s coaching call video and I used seed keywords ranging from 1-5 words in length and I used your modifiers such as “best”, “vs”, and “and”. I wound up with a list of 201 words. I’m sure it’s operator error here, so any tips for building a better seed keyword list?
Since time is the most precious commodity on this earth, invest the time at the front-end so that you can reap the benefits on the back-end. This means putting in a bit of sweat equity and not getting paid today. Rather, you'll get paid somewhere down the road. And you'll continue getting paid whether you keep building that passive income stream or you stop. It's obvious that this is the preferred route, but clearly the road less traveled.
I don’t have the patience or desire to negotiate on prices or respond to potential customer questions (which you definitely should do) and build up a good seller rating, but just because it’s not my cup of tea doesn’t mean it won’t work for you. Many people have made good money selling on eBay. To learn more, check out these tips from eBay’s power sellers.
6. Pay more attention to paid traffic, especially Facebook advertising in 2015. This has been a big shift in my strategy. Google is unpredictable. And SEO traffic is not really free as people say. Paid traffic is different. You turn it on when you need it. Unless you stop paying, you consistently get traffic. The key is to get the math right with a good sales funnel.
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,
28. Subscription – If you think of something valuable (newsletter, online magazine, etc.) that you can consistently offer on a certain basis (weekly, monthly, etc.), you may want to offer a subscription service. This could be a fee charged each time your product is sent out or on a monthly basis. Either way, this has to be something that your customers can only get by subscribing to your website.
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.

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.
Choosing the right ‘niche’ is an article topic on it’s own and it’s arguably the most important part of the making money with a niche website process. If you don’t pick the right niche, it will a) be difficult to get traffic because the competion for ranking your site in the SERPS will be very tough and b) there will be many other websites doing the exact same thing and c) your niche topic might not be easy to make money in.
Hi Sean…love the article. I have been trying to come up with a good strategy for coming up with a solid niche that I can be successful with and your article has helped me tremendously. I have combined your advice with the advice from another article and I think I have about 3 ideas that I will try to narrow down to 1. Do you have a timeline of how many articles you get up with a new site and the money that you will make on average per month for the first 6 months?

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.


Don't sacrifice morals for a quick buck — At the outset, you'll want to do all sorts of things to make money online, but don't sacrifice your morals for a quick buck. Not only will you put people off, but you'll lose Google's trust. You also shouldn't concern yourself with things like Adsense or other ads on a blog before you have around 100,000 visitors per day. Yes, per day. 
I don’t have the patience or desire to negotiate on prices or respond to potential customer questions (which you definitely should do) and build up a good seller rating, but just because it’s not my cup of tea doesn’t mean it won’t work for you. Many people have made good money selling on eBay. To learn more, check out these tips from eBay’s power sellers.
Let me just start off by saying this article is a GOD SEND!!! Starting out the keyword search seemed to come easy for me, however it is the key to find the PROFITABLE keyword! Jaaxy is definitely the best around! Awesome information and tips! Anyone starting out with blogging and desiring to be an affiliate marketer will definitely find this information handy! I know I have and you offered some amazing insight that I have forgotten about over time!
Anyone interested in making money online should be pursuing passive income, while also working on active income. There are loads of ways to generate an income passively on the internet, many of which start at the foundation of having a blog, generating substantial traffic and building an audience and a list. Is it easy? Nope. Is it worth it? It sure is. But that doesn't mean you need to start a blog to make money online today.

21. Facebook – Facebook swap shops are great for selling things locally. It’s like CraigsList, but a little easier. You simply search for swap shops in your area and ask to join the group. Once you’re in, take a picture of the item, write a quick description with the price and post it. It doesn’t get much easier than that. You can generally expect to get about what you would get at a yard sale, maybe a little more.
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,
It’s just weird not knowing what I do not know. Perhaps if I followed along and hired someone to build links, traffic would be 2X higher? Who knows. I even saw a testimonial from one of my PF blog peers how great so and so link building/SEO site was… and I was thinking…. man, what a fool I am to not participate and take the easier way. The site also is a PR5, but I don’t think the traffic is the same, but who knows.
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.
If you want to clear some space out in your house and have a big stack of books you’ve been holding onto for too long, you can make money selling your books and textbooks online. Stores like Half Priced Books and others will give you cents on the dollar for each of your current books while you can check what your book is worth by simply entering the ISBN number on Book Scouter.

And while it will take time to build up a big-enough audience to attract advertisers and other ways to make extra income from your podcast, the opportunity is there. John Lee Dumas interviews entrepreneurs seven days a week for his podcast Entrepreneur on Fire and now makes more than $200,000 a month from it. In fact, John publishes all his income online and showed that he’s made almost $13 million since launching in 2012.
Need more ideas on how to make money online? Another strategy is using webinars to market your product, service, or course. I’ve done webinars to promote my financial planning practice and to drum up interest in my online course for financial advisors. With a webinar, you’re basically offering a lot of tips and advice for free — usually in a live format. At the end though, you pitch your paid product or service with the goal of securing a few deals. 

Website Content Writing experts are hired by companies that are planning to add new content or want to upgrade the old one. You can provide them the reliable services including SEO article writing, blog writing, e-book writing. Make sure you write high-quality content. Money will follow.  Fiverr, Contenta, Upwork, Textbroker, Freelancer, Problogger and iWriter are some of the best platforms to find online content writing gigs for people who have no experience.
Let me give you guys an idea of what a bad niche is. I setup a camera site couple years back, and found out very quickly that “cameras” of any kind are very competitive, and this goes for camera accessories also, at the time, even the keywords seemed fairly doable, however, I spent months, and months going no-where. tip: if you choose a keyword that you think is good, and your video does not rank within seconds of submitting your videos, then that maybe an indication that there maybe a challenge ahead. If you picked a good keyword, then your video will rank high almost immediately. I created 20 videos around various products; Only 1 video managed to rank #1, and 15 min later the video was replaced by another; This is how competitive this niche is; Just because you are an expert on cameras or gopro does not mean you will get an easy pass to break into this niche; cameras have been around for many, many years, and there are camera affiliate sites that have been around for many, many years, so you have to complete with affiliate, amazon, ebay, and actual name brand camera sites. If you disagree, then feel free to let me know, and why, so choosing the right niche from the start is imperative. The worst thing you do is listen to the wind..”oh that is a great niche” that is no niche research, and could end up costing you 100’s or even 1000s in the long run; is your time not valuable?

Some scams might involve asking you to pay for a “training” book or CD that explains how to make money in a certain business. Others charge for supposedly “exclusive” products that you’re supposed to sell at a premium. Avoid both of these scenarios. Remember, you should never have to pay to get a job. And if someone asks you to, you can be sure that it’s a scam.


To get your music in the iTunes Store, you can work directly through Apple by filling out their application for iTunes, or work with an aggregator such as CDBaby. Aggregators are experienced experts in delivering content to Apple and streaming music sites such as Spotify and Pandora. Apple keeps about 30 cents per dollar when you sell a song on iTunes, leaving 70 cents for you; streaming sites might pay just a fraction of a cent each time your song is played. But even fractions add up.

25. Products – You can create your own product, such as an ebook or computer software. You would then use your blog as a promotion tool to get people to buy your product. As long as you create a legitimate product with a whole lot of value, you should be able to get some buyers, but like everything else with a blog, you’ll need the traffic to get the sells.
Now you’ve got many different options to start earning online. If you saw something that really interests you, try it out and learn more about it. If you’re really wanting to make a full-time income online, you need to be dedicated to learning how to do what you want to do. There are tons of free resources out there. You just have to search for them!
Iam a PG graduate(MCA). I’m a housewife and have no experience in any jobs. I’m now interested in working from home as i’m having free time and also to earn money for my family. I’m expecting some Data entry or Transcription jobs but Unfortunately I know only English, Tamil and I’m learning Hindi. So can you guide me what websites should follow to get jobs. Thank you.
It’s sometimes hard to comprehend just how much people love t-shirts. And with the right niche, marketing, and tools, you can create an online t-shirt business that makes you extra money online while you sleep. (Even Bloomberg and Forbes feature stories from entrepreneurs who've done just that.) Services like TeeSpring make it easier than ever to create a t-shirt drop-shipping business where they handle the sales, printing, and shipping, and you’re only responsible for design and marketing. For more tips, check out this simple guide to launching and marketing an online clothing store by my friends over at Selz.

Merch by Amazon is another service offered by Amazon that will enable you to make money online without any initial outlay. To get started you need to create an account with Merch by Amazon. Then simply design some T-shirt logos or slogans, and upload them to your Merch account. You will need to choose a T-shirt type, color, and price, and Amazon will create product pages for each T-shirt. When someone makes a purchase, Amazon takes care of production and shipping. And you are paid a royalty for your design.
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. 
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
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.
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.
There are exceptions to every rule, of course, and some types of work-from-home jobs do require an upfront investment. But that investment should be in yourself – like buying a headset to perform customer service work, or purchasing materials to craft jewelry that you plan to sell in an online shop. Or formally starting your own business – or increasing your marketable skills through courses and certifications.

Join a startup accelerator: Another great option is to apply to a startup accelerator like Y Combinator, 500 startups, or TechStars, where a group of investors will help coach you, connect you with potential partners, and provide startup cash in return for a small stake in your company. The competition is tough to get into these, so don’t rely on them as your only path forward.
One endearing thing about Pat is his boyish honesty and complete transparency with how he makes money. There are a lot of online sharks and snakes out there, but Pat is not one of them. He publishes money reports where he details to the cent where every single bit of income he makes comes from. It’s been quite a journey, but I’ve seen Pat grow online from making a couple thousand dollars from an e-book to making north of $75,000 a month online.
Worth noting, Pat does not rest on his laurels. He’s constantly experimenting and exploring new ways to make money, and he is always humble and continually learning, recognizing that no stream of income is risk free. What if that site shuts down and your income disappears? Smart Passive Income is a fantastic place to start or continue your research. Pat is very responsive online; I’ve gotten multiple personal emails from him in response to my questions. He won’t lead you astray.
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.

One of the holy grails of work-from-home jobs is landing an employee position with a company online. In these positions, you are not an independent contractor or a freelancer. You are a bona fide employee, and you get all the perks that entails – from your employer handling your taxes to a host of benefits, like health coverage and PTO and holiday pay. You may also enjoy a greater sense of security, since you’re traditionally employed and not worrying about the end of the project or contract you were hired to complete.
No, I actually didn’t view it before hand. I found the position on Career builder and it said so in the description. On the day of orientation we were told that after or during training we would have to submit the background info and fee before the week we start taking calls. She also said it would not be refunded. I think it said so in the initial offer letter as well.
21. Facebook – Facebook swap shops are great for selling things locally. It’s like CraigsList, but a little easier. You simply search for swap shops in your area and ask to join the group. Once you’re in, take a picture of the item, write a quick description with the price and post it. It doesn’t get much easier than that. You can generally expect to get about what you would get at a yard sale, maybe a little more.

Ben was a seriously broke graduate student with bad credit who after finding himself rejected for any sort of credit card or loan for most of his adult life, finally decided to get his financial life in order. 'He spent several years reading as many financial advice books and blogs as he could.And suprisingly, Ben found he actually LIKED the topic of personal finance; after fixing his own finances, starting his own successful work at home website business, and using his earnings to get out of debt, created echeck.org to help others do likewise!
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!!

Data entry jobs from home provide great opportunities for stay at home jobs for beginners. Entry level work at home data entry jobs are so popular. This is because data entry jobs are flexible, do not require a phone, no customer service is involved, and is quite simple to do. Also many of these data entry jobs pay weekly. And the hourly pay of between $10 and $16 (more or less) are quite decent.
As someone who's been immersed in a number of online industries for quite some time, I know a thing or two about what it takes to succeed in this arena. However, just like you, I started at ground zero with little knowledge, but a great deal of passion. What I learned along the way were some invaluable lessons from failure that hurt at the time, but helped immensely in the grand scheme of things.
Recently, I received an email from an individual who was desperately seeking a legit, online, work from home business opportunity. This person had currently moved to a very rural area of town and was unable to commute to work. Another obstacle that this individual faced was the issue of needing money ASAP to pay for bills and daily living expenses, but they still wanted the flexibility and perks of being their own boss.
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.
Slice the Pie is a site I use quite frequently. All you do is listen to music and rate/review it. You'll get paid anywhere from six to seven cents up to sometimes seventeen cents per song you review just depending on if they have any promos going on. It only takes a few minutes to review a song. They pay out on Tuesdays and Fridays and you must have a minimum of $10 to withdraw your earnings, but this is very possible to do twice per week.
