Having several affiliates is not a guarantee of making money online. Studies show that a successful affiliate marketing campaign requires you to get the right collaborations that would drive traffic to your site. Whether these associates are big or small sites or even a combination of both, you must create and maintain strong relationships with the affiliates.
While some of these ideas are perfectly reasonable jobs, some of them are silly (Online fitness coach? You too lazy to have someone to it with you in person? Vacation planner? You mean you can’t call a hotel and book your plane reservations yourself? Maybe you don’t deserve to have a vacation then.), are redundant (transcribers already exist – give it to your secretary if you most – that’s what she’s paid to do), or are really hard to get – I applied for a job to do customer service work at home with LiveOps and was rejected because I lived in California. Pretty annoying…
Thank you for all the information. I currently work in a tax and accounting office but want a change. I love the payroll and accounting side of my job but don’t like tax season. It’s high stress and I am not getting the training to get better at tax preparation. I’m 55 and have worked here for 9 years. I also feel like my earning potential will not increase. I really want a remote job. I have the skills and discipline to work independently. Can you point me in the right direction? I’m very good with Quickbooks and Excel. Some of the postings ask for Quickbooks online. I do use it some but wonder if I should get certified. Oh, I also like to crochet and make things. Any suggestions for selling handmade items.
Google Autocomplete – go to google.com, start typing a phrase and look at the dropdown autocomplete results. You can use the underscore character “_” to have Google fill-in-the-blank. Just make sure the last character you type is an underscore. Try using plurals and change the word ordering to see different results. This is how I find 90% of my keywords.
Rather than making money through subscriptions, YouTube channels are based on a traditional advertising system. Meaning the more viewers you get, the more you make. Once you’re approved for the YouTube Partner Program and can start including ads on your videos, with every 1,000 views, you will make approximately $2-$4. Which might not seem like a lot, but if you have 100 videos with 5,000 views a month each, that would be $1,000–$2,000 already. Just imagine if your videos start hitting millions of views!
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.
To boost your chances to earn from affiliate marketing, various sites have various tools to make your campaign more efficient. There are a lot of tools which would be helpful out there. For example, if you use a WordPress site, then you should think of getting a plugin that is like the Affiliate Link Manager. Online money making is eased with the usage of right tools.
Great list Whitney! Another great option is Amazon FBA (Fulfillment By Amazon) There are apps (like Profit Bandit) that will allow you to scan the barcodes of clearance items at local stores and know instantly if the item can be sold for a profit on Amazon. The beauty of FBA is you simply ship all of the items at once to Amazon and they handle picking, packing and shipping your items when they sell so you can get back to being a mom 🙂 I know three people that make a legitimate six-figure income doing this from home.
The problem with affiliate marketing, like many other home business options, are the so-called gurus and get-rich-quick programs that suggest affiliate marketing can be done fast and with little effort. Odds are you've read claims of affiliate marketing programs that say you can make hundreds of thousands of dollars a month doing almost nothing ("Three clicks to rich!"). Or, they suggest you can set up your affiliate site, and then forget it, except to check your bank deposits.
Before promoting your site, you would want to make sure there is a good amount of content there. You need to write several product reviews with 2-3 in each category created. You might also need to make categories for news, articles, commentary and others about the topic. The more the content on your site, the better. The amazing thing about all this is that as you writing all this, the search engines automatically are getting notified, if you turned the notifications on, mentioned earlier.
Thank you for the reply, I saw it too late and i'm still at the "ready state", but at least i know what to do... start a site... You have replied to my comment on 1 of your recent videos,so I will be looking for an accountant in the meantime as well... I guess i'm the "average consumer" stuck in the "get info" mode... but I'm this by the end of the month... At least i can start a website (and build hopefully an e-mail list and authority).Thank you again Miles!
Hello Miles, awesome job getting over your hesitation toward writing. I have the opposite problem, I’ve been trying to make a YouTube video for the last 3 days after finding your channel. It’s very frustrating because I’m excited about the process and very motivated I just don’t seem confident at all on camera (because I’m not). However, my niche is in fitness and confident, over the top enthusiastic delivery is sort of expected.
The only costs associated with a good website are your domain (about $10/year through NameCheap), hosting (SiteGround, even A2 if you want really cheap…about $5/month or less), and a WordPress theme (there are some good free ones but most of the big guys use StudioPress which is a $100 one-time cost). WordPress.org is free and can be installed in your hosting account.
Transcription is one of my part time jobs. I can do it conveniently from home and many of the clients are trainers or speakers. Having money and needing transcription services doesn’t imply you have a secretary. At my full time job the closest we have to a secretary is the CEO’s assistant. She books flights, plans travel, schedules meetings, transports his children, and helps with home renovations. She doesn’t have the time to sit and transcribe work when the CEO can send it to a company or freelance agent for a few dollars.
It’s becoming increasingly important for businesses to have a presence on social media. If you have a knack for using social media platforms such as Facebook and Instagram, you could make a living helping businesses reach out, engage and promote their product through social media marketing. Social media managers or specialists also can earn money through training and consulting.
