The internet is literally a goldmine FILLED with tons of ways to make money. If you have a laptop and a wifi connection, then you are set up for the potential to be successful. There are tons of different ways that you can tap into the wealth the internet has to offer, and I'm going to show you JUST how.
BUT I need you to be open minded and know that this is not an overnight success type of article, but rather a put in the work now and reap the success over time type of article.
Affiliate marketing is receiving commissions from promoting other people's products. There are tons of businesses that have affiliate programs that you can participate in as just a regular person. All you have to do is get started blogging to build up your traffic.
No one wants you to promote their products to an audience of your family and that guy down the street who thinks you're kind of cute. Get to blogging because CONTENT IS KING.
Sell Done-For-You Products
Done-for-you products are sweeping the internet as business owners are trying to save time creating their own products. Many business coaches and whatnot are seeking out products that are already created. These types of products are able to be sold for a lot more than, say, a $20 ebook that you create to sell to your own audience.
I've created a few done-for-you products that I sell for a whopping $500 per product. They're pictured below:
Create Digital Products
Digital products are literally my favorite type of products. They are the reason I was able to make an income without having a 9 to 5 job. To this day, I have created over 200 digital products and counting.
So what are Digital products? Digital products are any products that are intangible (not able to be touched), that you can sell and distribute online. Here are a few examples of digital products:
- Audio files (music or audio classes)
- Swipe files
- Mobile Applications
Well, you get the picture! These types of files are easily able to be created and can be sold and delivered to the customer immediately after purchase.
One thing I love about digital products is that you can make it one time and then you're able to sell it continuously. I have digital products that I've created in 2015 that I'm still making money on today. That is the beauty of digital products and passive income.
Perform Tasks online
There are a few websites out there that allow you to perform tasks in exchange for money. For instance, Task Rabbit allows you to perform tasks for people who need them in exchange for cash. Tasks performed include:
- Fixing toilets
- Planting flowers
- Office/Home Delivery
- Mounting a TV/Mirror
- Moving Boxes
And a variety of other tasks. So if you're good with your hands, then you can make money using the Task Rabbit App.
There are tons of single moms, elderly people and just people who want to outsource tasks because they simply don't want to do it themselves that are waiting for someone like you to make their lives just a little easier.
Become an Influencer
I'm sure you hear the word influencer thrown around enough to write a quick ebook on it. There are tons of products out there waiting to be promoted by you. An influencer is someone who obviously has a lot of influence on the public who can most likely get them to buy a product or service that a separate company is selling.
Example: I had been seeing ads about these lashes I viewed once. My guess, I was retargeted! So I kept seeing these ads over and over and kind of skipped over them, UNTILLL, I saw Jeanie Mai (of The Real) talking about them on a TikTok video ad and I was SOLD. So, influencer marketing DOES work.
So how do you become an influencer? Easy! There are tons of platforms that you can get on that have products waiting to be promoted by influencers. Platforms like IZEA and OBVIOUSLY help influencers get connected to companies that need influencers and influencers that want to make money.
