5 Killer Online Money Making Ideas: Start Your Side Hustles That Get You Paid — affiliatemarketingmc at YouTube.com
Today we’ll talk about some major money-making ideas, and which ones I think are the best.
Remember, an idea is only as good as the implementation behind it. You can have the greatest idea in the world, but if you don’t go anything with it, you won’t make anything with it. Let’s dive in.
If you’re just beginning to make money online, Shopify can be a good way to get started. A lot of people use it for selling products or dropshipping products. Sometimes people will do free plus shipping offers, where they make a little bit of money on a lot of purchased. This can be a good thing. You can build it into a business, and it’s definitely viable.
There are some downsides to this, though. You have to get traffic to your shop to be able to sell what you have. You also need to do your own customer support. My thinking is this: If I’m going to drive traffic, I want to drive visitors to something that’s going to make me the most money, and I also want to get rid of the extra work I have to do. If I’m doing customer service, I’ll be slammed and limited to what I can really do.
Many people have made lots of money on Etsy. This is a great place to have a product and sell it. People often create and sell their own product by putting it on Etsy.
I am friends with a designer who makes her own clothes and sells them on Etsy. The problem is that she has to drive traffic to her site. You have to sell your stuff really hard core. A lot of times it’s very difficult, because the markets that people go into (like the T-shirt market, or coffee mug market) are really competitive, and the amount of money you’re making on these products is really, really low.
eBay is a little bit different. eBay has a built-in traffic source. People go to eBay to search for things to buy. So, you don’t really have to worry so much about driving your own traffic. This platform will work, but you have to have the right direction. It’s not just about the idea that you have – you have to know how to find your market.
Like eBay, Amazon has their own built-in traffic. Amazon has their own search engine, so you can take advantage of it. This makes it a lot easier and cheaper to get traffic. However, Amazon is getting super competitive as well. Often times it’s very difficult for someone with little money, or someone who’s just getting started.
Info marketing is one of my favorite things to do. This is where you package information and you actually market it online. You might create the information yourself, or you might do resale rights, where you buy the rights to an info product, service, video set, plug-in, or something like that.
This is usually pretty cut-and-dry. All you have to do is market your product under the problems that it solves. It’s easy to do.
For example, if I buy the rights to a book about how to take care of a cat, then all I need to do is use keywords like “cat won’t eat”, “cat won’t sleep”, “cat biting”, keywords which are very, very inexpensive, and I can drive people to the product. Then I could sell that product very easily.
I’ve made millions with info marketing, and it works really, really well.
Network marketing has a pretty bad reputation, because a lot of promote the opportunity, but the product is lacking. People might talk up the opportunity to make money, but in the end, there’s no real product, and there’s no real value to the customer. And if there’s no real product, then it’s kind of like a pyramid scheme.
Now, there are network marketing companies that are very good. Some offer products such as health or beauty products, or maybe services, or something like that. Those can be good, but you have to make sure that the product is in demand, and that it works really well.
This is also known as multi-level marketing, where you build a network to get paid. Often you have to ask your friends or family to sign up, and you have to bug people, and it’s not really that fun, and (in my opinion) the amount of money you make for the work is not that great.
Next to info marketing, my favorite way to make money online is through affiliate marketing. I don’t have to deal with selling stuff, or shipping stuff, or customer support. All I have to do is find what people are searching for.
Over 4 million people search Google every 60 seconds. That doesn’t include the people that search YouTube, or MSN Yahoo, or any other search engine. That’s just Google alone. These people are searching every minute for problems and solutions.
(To find this information, you might have searched for “money-making ideas” online in Google or in YouTube. This is a solution to your problem – we’re showing you different ideas and different ways to make money.)
Back in 2008, I found out that people were searching for layouts, backgrounds, and different things for their website. I set up a simple one-page website and made tons of money. It was one of my biggest websites back then. Now, I set up lots of websites as well, mostly around web hosting where I get paid $100 a sale. Or, I set up sites for things like different shopping carts, or different downloads, different lead products, things like that. All I have to do is set up a simple blog or web page, be the middle man, drive traffic, and make money.
So in my opinion, the best way to get going is affiliate marketing. It takes some work, it takes some trial and error. But I think it’s the easiest way to get started making money now.
