As an internet entrepreneur, you'll need your own web presence:website, blog, social media platforms, landing pages, sales pages, banner ads, or e-commerce site. But instead of selling your own products, you sell the products of other companies. You can use several of these combinations, if you like, as long as you get your marketing message to the public.
Hello all. I was just scammed literally an hour ago. Saw the total of $97 for the payment and when I tried to leave the page it said I get an additional $20 off. I’m an idoiot and gave them my credit card number. Well, little did they know I gave them a credit card number that has $0 on it!! HA HA! So after the payment a phone number pops up on the screen, telling me to call to speak to a specialist. I called and couldn’t even understand what they name of the “business” was. I was transferred to a guy named Nathan. Nathan told me that he would need to set up an appointment later in the day and ask me questions to see if I qualify. It would take up to an hour. I gave him a time and when he didn’t call back I knew for sure, even though I was hesitant the whole time, that it was a scam. So I started researching (duh, why didn’t I do this before, I’m usually not this stupid!)and found a bunch of articles describing all this as a scam. Even though I gave them a credit card with no money on it, I still reported it stolen and am getting a new one. So after I cancel my card, Mr. Nathan gives me a call. Out of curiousity I call him back cuz I was interested to see if he would ask for a new credit card cuz mine should have technically declined from the very beginning. He begins to ask me questions that didn’t make any sense. I was constantly saying, “I don’t get what you mean.” Nathan asked me how many credit cards I have. I said 3. Then he asks me, “What types of cards do you have?” I said, “What does the type of card I have have to do with anything”? He asks me if I wanted to learn how to make money with my credit cards. I laughed and said sure. He says ok so what type of cards do you have? That’s when I hung up on him. Nice try Nathan!
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.
I am so glad that you have had reports about these people. Just wish I would of checked before I gave them my info and money. However, I contacted my credit card company and closed my account and sent an email to them cancelling my membership along with a request for the 100% money back guarantee. We’ll see what happens. My daughter did not send the email. Which means that they hacked her email.
Online savings accounts usually come with crazy good interest rates to help you grow your money faster (regular in-person banks can’t offer rates as high). We’re fans of CIT Bank and Discover Bank (among others) because their interest rates are often over 25 times the national average. That means the money in your savings account will grow 25 times faster than the pace it’s most likely growing at now. Really, though, you can’t go wrong with pretty much any online savings account that offers over 1.50% APY 🙂
Freelance writing has completely changed our lives. For years, we worked great jobs in a funeral home. However, those jobs also demanded tons of time and exceptional amounts of emotional energy. We found ourselves working nights, weekends, and holidays – getting called out at all hours of the night and missing countless family events. These were good jobs, but they grew tiring.
Walk around your neighborhood or town and I’m sure you’ll see tons of great local businesses with terrible design. However, with increasingly easy-to-use tools like Adobe Illustrator, Venngage, Stencil, and Visme, just about anyone with a creative mindset and a good amount of motivation can start making money online by being a graphic designer for local companies.
Starting a podcast, like making a YouTube channel or blog, comes down to telling interesting stories and building an engaged audience. I’m probably sounding like a broken record by now, but you need a niche that you’re interested in and there’s already a demand for. Come up with a list of topics you’d like to talk about and then search iTunes charts, Google Trends and other podcast research sites like cast.market to see what’s currently out there and popular.
Do you see all of those articles, tutorials and guides all over the Internet? Somebody wrote every one of them! If you have decent writing ability (no, you don’t need a journalism degree!), and knowledge in a few specific topic areas, you can be one of those writers. It’s an opportunity to make money online and without ever leaving your home. It’s also the kind of venture that can start out as a small side business, but grow into a full-time career.

i’m also printing e-mails. some things aren’t adding up. for example, i received an e-mail earlier today from the contact support team from purely hosting. in the e-mail he states (alistair is his name. just seeing if these names ring any bells) that he received the request for my cancellation and refund, but he can’t issue a refund until i call him or e-mail why i want to cancel. this i don’t understand: i went in through specific detail of why i want to cancel in the request text box. i copied both site addresses informing him of the one i received from my friend’s e-mail, and then the one i found online when searching for success stories. i even copied the address to the scam report. i ended the request by saying ‘i feel the use of your product(s) invalid along with the original product that was purchased.’
27. Sponsored/paid posts – Many blogs publish sponsored and paid posts. Sponsored posts are basically just posts about a specific brand, product or service. A company will pay you to publish an article about it. It’s similar with other paid posts as well. Your basically selling the spot for the article on your site. If you decide to take this route, you’ll want to build your traffic before you will get many offers.
E-books represent about 20 percent of all book sales in the U.S. The good news is you don’t have to be a publisher with deep pockets to get in on the action. As a solo internet entrepreneur, you can sell ebooks directly from your own website. You can sell your own works or sell a public domain work. Simply upload it to your website (or seller account on Amazon) and start publicizing it on your social media platforms, on your email list, your blog, website, etc.
