Keep in mind that the strategies listed below range from easy and passive, to the ones which require a TON of on-going work (so make sure you pick something that suits your site and lifestyle preferences).
It is not a waste of time to write meaningful, helpful posts that don’t contain a single affiliate link. Too often bloggers ask, “how could this post earn me money?” and not, “how can I position my blog as one that is a valuable resource?” Build the trust with your readership through solid, quality content so when you do have the right opportunity to share an affiliate link or two – you’ll have a captured audience and not a desensitized one.
There’s money in the air, and if you can successfully create an online service, tool, or marketplace that fulfills a rapidly growing need in the marketplace, you could be on track for creating a very valuable business. However, it’ll undoubtedly take an intense dedication of time, efforts, and financial resources.
Hi David. Thanks for your comment. I intentionally omitted a direct trail to the highest paying programs so that visitors will spend more time exploring the site to find them. But after several comments similar to yours I think it’s time for me to produce a page listing programs that pay over $1000 per sale in one place. So please come back later this week and the new page will be linked from this one. Thanks for your suggestion. I’m always looking to improve this site so I really appreciate your feedback. Sincerely – Bill

1) You will need traffic to come to your site for any of this to happen. I know some people who have success with this formula and what they do is they create FB ads which lead relevant audiences back to their Shopify store. If you don’t have the money to spend on the ads, you may run into an issue.
GigWalk: This iPhone app allows you to team up with companies posting gigs and get small jobs done for cash. These can be anything from mystery-shopping to making deliveries to testing apps to taking photos. Simply install the app, make a profile, and start looking for gigs in your area.
Think of a product or service you already like and go to the website of said product. Look for a link (often in the footer) that says “Affiliates,” “Affiliate Program,” “Referral Program” or something similar. Follow the links to sign up.
This question is something that’s frequently asked by people new to online survey taking. How much do online surveys really pay, and are they worth my time? Nobody wants to invest time into something that doesn’t pay off (literally), so how much can you really expect to earn?
Sandler decided to start secret shopping not only to earn money eating, traveling and shopping, but also to learn customer service skills to pass along to the employees she managed at a retail store. Depending on the clients she is shopping for, Sandler says she has earned everywhere from $100 to $2,000 per month.
Start a website or blog. Sure, competition in the online world is steep, but one thing that makes a good site or blog stand apart is the dedication and enthusiasm of its writer. Plenty of sites focus too hard on SEO and keywords, and while SEO-optimization is certainly necessary to help your content make money, delving into something that truly matters to you will set you apart from your fluff-and-stuff competitors.
Bill has an incredible site, filled with valuable content and resources. Anyone who engages in this will be off to a powerful start. Duplicate success everyone, you cant fail. Thanks again Bill for this site and its high value.
Admittedly this is a long term strategy (and you definitely won’t get rich overnight). But it’s one of the best, long-term methods to profitably growing your blog into a full-fledged, money making enterprise.
Great list and accompanying tips, thanks! I’ve been in the finance related niche since 2012, mostly promoting brokerage firms but I had never heard of Regal, somehow. I am just coming off a year-long break and needed some fresh ideas so I appreciate your effort here!
Hi Warren. The best thing to do in your situation is to simply break the process down into steps—like the steps laid out here. Make it your goal to take on one thing at a time, then tackle it as quickly as possible.
Yes, I always leave the site when there are hundrets of add or even worse popus in you face. Its hard to believe for me, that those even work. Everyone I know, the first thing they are looking for the X sign in those popups.
Merchants favor affiliate marketing because in most cases it uses a “pay for performance” model, meaning that the merchant does not incur a marketing expense unless results are accrued (excluding any initial setup cost).
First – I need to share a little bit of perspective. This whole ‘working on the internet’ thing is very much just a part-time side hustle for me. My internet endeavors are almost always at the top of my mind. But realistically – they are #3 on my list of day-to-day priorities. Family is #1 and day job is #2.

If your expectations are such that you are delighted with an extra $100/day, then fuck anybody who tells you to throw down $10,000 on a costly media buy. POF is a brilliant low-level traffic source (with a few Intermediate exceptions who rely on economies of scope) and you need never risk your coat.
Thanks for the email to check this out. I do agree. I think I was having a poor me day when I contacted you guys! I’m doing better now and just plugging along! God will take care of us and I just need to be diligent with what he has provided and be able to rest assure that I’m on the right track!
6) Moving forward, I really would recommend you consider a niche site you like, regardless of the high ticket products or not that you could sell in it. It is far more important to create a niche site you love than one which has potential, but you can’t do anything with it because there’s no experience to motivate you to create high quality content to make the sales in the first place!
An Intermediate affiliate may drop a level after losing his best campaign, while the Affiliate Apprentice can turn Top Doggy Baller overnight if he stumbles in to an unsaturated niche and makes it pay (a daily occurrence in 2009, rare in 2013).
MySurvey, is an online paid surveys community where consumers influence future products and services by volunteering to participant in consumer research, such as online surveys, diaries and product tests. Members are able to voice their opinions, while also getting rewarded.
Once you have that problem or need nailed, the next step is to validate that idea and make sure you’ve actually got customers who will pay for it. This means building a minimum viable product, getting objective feedback from real customers, incorporating updates, testing the market for demand, and getting pricing feedback to ensure there’s enough of a margin between your costs and what consumers are willing to pay.
You put an ad on your site and you get paid a predetermined amount for every 1000 pageviews on your site. So for example, let’s say you are working with an ad network that pays $2 CPM. Every time their ad is shown 1000 times on your site, they pay you $2. Pretend your site gets 50,000 pageviews a month (and a particular ad shows up on every one of those pages). That means you will be paid $100 that month for that ad because $2 for 50 thousands (times it is “viewed”) is $100. Make sense?
Thanks for writing this post. What you say is true. The make money thing does not work. We all want to make money of course but we tend to be suspicious of these make money sites. High end products like you mention will mean high commission on sales anyway. I always believed no one would buy a washing machine online but then my daughter did just that so it seems people are more willing to buy online now than they ever have been before.
Not quite! It would be extremely unusual for the web designer to contact you directly. Instead, they will use your experience to help build a better website by identifying problems you encountered. Pick another answer!
Vindale Research asks for information about you so that they can match you with fitting surveys. At up to $50 a pop for some surveys, and a free $2 just for signing up, it pays to check in daily to see which ones are available to you. Cashouts are through PayPal.
The website Fiverr promotes members’ talent in multiple disciplines and connects them to people looking to pay for those skills. For example, if you’re a digital photo editing guru, you might find freelance projects you can complete for compensation.
Affiliates were among the earliest adopters of pay per click advertising when the first pay-per-click search engines emerged during the end of the 1990s. Later in 2000 Google launched its pay per click service, Google AdWords, which is responsible for the widespread use and acceptance of pay per click as an advertising channel. An increasing number of merchants engaged in pay per click advertising, either directly or via a search marketing agency, and realized that this space was already occupied by their affiliates. Although this situation alone created advertising channel conflicts and debates between advertisers and affiliates, the largest issue concerned affiliates bidding on advertisers names, brands, and trademarks. Several advertisers began to adjust their affiliate program terms to prohibit their affiliates from bidding on those type of keywords. Some advertisers, however, did and still do embrace this behavior, going so far as to allow, or even encourage, affiliates to bid on any term, including the advertiser’s trademarks.

If you are comfortable taking off your kit then why not try life modelling. Sit there in the buff while budding artists capture your every curve (or pokey bits) in frightening detail! Try RAM, a website especially designed for these kind of jobs.
You know, I am not 18 and I do photography too. My dad works at a local organic market and says he can put some of my photos up for sail there. You know, thats always an option. Going to a local store and asking if you can put your photos up for a limited amount of time and see if they sell. That can work 🙂 I hope this helped!
They’re just extremely expensive products or services that offer a chance for people to promote them and depending on the commission rate, make anywhere from $100’s to $1,000’s per each sale. That is the most obvious pro to this topic.
In addition to things I can do when I need money now, I’ve included ways to quickly borrow money and cash in on things around the house, plus a few tricks to get friends to help out while helping them.
With an assoc. program like Amazon’s, is it necessary you already hold an account with the company? And if you are running multiple web/Internet locations where it is possible to be a productive affiliate, and not a spammer, is it possible to have just a single affiliate account with a company or does each web location need to have it’s own unique connection to the affiliate being promoted/advertised? (I so hope this makes sense and is clear…..) thank you for your time band wonderful info Amy!!
How many articles are there about making money online? Thousands? Millions? Enough? Probably. But there’s a problem. Too many of them are just sales pitches to convince you to sign up for some seminar, webinar, training session or some other way to become an online millionaire.How many articles are there about making money online?

Set up the site. Choose a website building platform, such as WordPress, Joomla or Drupal. Next, choose a domain name and web hosting for your site. The domain name is your web address. Web hosting is a service that connects your site to the internet. Once you have your domain name and web hosting, go to the control panel of your hosting account and install your website platform. Design your website by choosing and installing a theme.
Double check yourself, before you double wreck yourself. Make sure everything you send to a company, whether a résumé, an email or a portfolio, is good to go. Double check your grammar and wording, and for God’s sake use spell check! This is especially important when it comes to the company’s name. Don’t spell their name wrong and be sure to type it how they type it (e.g. Problogger, not Pro Blogger).
WeReward: This iPhone and Android app allows you to complete small tasks (ex. taking a photo of yourself with your favorite beverage or eating at a new establishment) for points that translate to cash. Though the per-task reward is small, there are millions of participating businesses and the points can add up quickly.
