Make money on YouTube. People who love the spotlight and have other online hustles should consider creating their own YouTube channel. If you’re interested — and interesting — you can use the platform to market affiliate products, sell products you create yourself, or receive ad revenue for your informal tutorials or entertaining videos. Once you get the ball rolling, YouTube offers a partner program that can help you monetize your business further.
Market your course: The beauty of using a course to make money online is that you can continue to sell it for as long as you’d like. Look for niche communities on Facebook, LinkedIn, or Reddit that might benefit from your content. Guest post on relevant blogs and sites. Look for anywhere you might be able to get in front of the right people. With just a few hours a month you can continue to generate sales.
Pretty much every serious blogger and online entrepreneur I know has at least one virtual assistant. Think of a VA like an administrative assistant at a regular office building, except they are working remotely. Duties can include practically any administrative task you can think of – including handling emails, bookkeeping, completing sales, customer service, editing websites, and much more. Specializations in areas like social media management or online ad management is another option.
This scam has now evolved to be even more elaborate. Someone sent me a link via twitter to this opportunity and it first brings you to what looks like an online financial magazine of some sort called “Finance Report”. Here there is a news article about this single mother “Theresa Andrews” from Geneva (I assume it says Geneva as this is my current location) who has found this amazing opportunity working from home called Online Income. At first glance the website looks like it could be legit but you can quickly see that it’s a fake. When you try to click on anything else on the page other than the link to sign up for the program, it still sends you to the page to sign up for program, i.e. everything on this page is linked to the Online Income program. I assume this tactic is used to make it seem more as though the program was actually featured in some type of media outlet with the idea of tricking people into thinking that this makes it a legitimate opportunity. Since many people will probably not try other links on the page, it’s actually a pretty good strategy. If you do end up clicking on the link to the program, basically all of the other content is the same as the content you mentioned here including photos, video, paycheques, etc. Also funny that it says this Theresa Andrews is from Geneva on the financial website and then in the description of the program her story is from her struggle in New Jersey.
If you’re looking for more serious work, you could try your hand at a site like Upwork, where you can find bigger projects in the web and graphic design arena. Again, competition here is also fierce with many people attempting to undercut others. If you don’t have a solid portfolio and track record, you’ll find it difficult to make very much money at all.
Keep in mind though, you don’t need a website to do sponsored content since you can also get paid if you have a lot of social media followers. My wife has a pretty big Instagram following, and she gets all kinds of sponsorships. Not only does she get paid in cash, but we get a lot of free stuff, too. We’ve received free rugs, free lights, and free carpet cleaners. She only promotes things she loves though, so this strategy works really well for her.
