Why Everyone Needs to Make Money Online

I’m going to show you a graphic that should
scare anyone still depending on a traditional job, an employer, for their
income. So this shows two types of tax forms collected by the IRS, the W-2 form
you get from a traditional employer reporting your wages and the 1099 form you
get when working as a contract employee or in that side hustle economy.

And if this doesn’t immediately scare you then
you’re not looking close enough. The lines here are based off the number of
these forms the IRS got in 2000 and you can see that since that time, those W-2
forms have decreased.

That means the IRS has been getting fewer of
these traditional job forms each year, employers are hiring fewer of those
traditional type of employees.

But look at this line for the number of 1099
forms collected by the IRS. It’s surged since 2000 and some estimates put the
contract economy as high as one-in-ten Americans right now.

This growth in online jobs, the gig economy, side hustles or freelance contractors, whatever you want to call it. Where do you think these jobs are coming from?

How to Start Making Money from Home

Getting started on one of the five online jobs
we’ll talk about in this video or the others we’ve highlighted on the channel,
it’s no longer about making extra money. It’s not going to be long before all
work is done this way, as a freelance work from home idea and getting started
now is absolutely critical to securing your financial future!

So what I want to do in this video is cover five ways to make money online and from home that anyone can use, no matter what your experience. We won’t talk about blogging or starting a YouTube channel or anything like that. These are great income sources and I’ve built a six-figure income from them but I wanted to focus on jobs anyone can start.

I’m also going to be sharing three secrets that will guarantee your success no matter what work from home job you choose so stick around for those towards the end of the article.

Making Money in Local Digital Marketing

This first one is going to be a wide-open
market because nobody is doing it, offering digital marketing and brand
promotion at a local level.

I love this idea because it combines the
offline world with the online. It combines a lot of different jobs people are
doing but nobody has yet to put it all together.

What you’re doing here is going to local
businesses to offer digital marketing services. You’ll go online to blogs with
a local audience or review sites, anywhere your client’s customers might
hangout online.

Then you’re going to write guest posts on the blogs, leave reviews, engage in social forums and social media, all to help promote and manage the brand for your client.

The separate pieces here; writing, brand
management, advertising. These all exist already but nobody is combining that
online service with an offline, face-to-face and personal relationship you can
build with these local businesses.

That online brand management and promotion is
something small businesses desperately need and they feel completely mystified
by it. They know they need a solution, fear to their core that they’re missing
out and have no idea where to begin.

This is a job that starts at $50 an hour and
is something that will turn into a six-figure business very quickly. Once you
start working with a few companies, you’ll develop a resources list you can use
for every job in that industry. You’ll have already developed your list of
restaurant and food blogs or forums or Facebook groups you can engage with for
every new client.

Start locally here. Visit small businesses,
put together a couple of promotion packages you can offer at different price
levels. After a year of this, you can start expanding into different cities and
start building your team to do the work.

Making Money Online Book Consulting

This next one, I’m just going to call it being
a book guru because I don’t think there’s a name for it.

One of the most consistent habits we see in
millionaires, without fail, is the idea of making time for reading. In fact,
research by Thomas Crowley found that 85% of self-made millionaires read two or
more books a month. That’s not only reading how-to books on business but
biographies, self-improvement and even leisure reading. Billionaire Mark Cuban
schedules three hours a day for reading and Bill Gates reads 50 books a year.

Reading more is something we all know we need
to do…but how many actually do it?

Your job here is going to be making it
possible for people to get that knowledge without having to crack open a book.

This is going to be like a consulting or coaching business but instead of trying to sell your experience or knowledge, you’re selling the experience and knowledge of Richard Branson or Jack Welch or Bill Gates.

What you’re going to do is read the most
popular books; books on business, on success and mindset. I mean really study
the books, take notes and learn the lessons. Then you offer one-on-one
consulting and group masterminds explaining the books.

Now this goes beyond just giving people the
cliff’s notes to a book. You’re pointing out the biggest lessons, helping
people understand how they can use the information. Besides doing that
consulting idea, you can put what you learn in a quick download or printable to
sell for another income stream.

Your clients are going to be busy business
people, folks that know they need to be reading these books and implementing
the advice, but just don’t have time.

Finding clients is actually going to be easier
than you imagine on this one. You can write up short reviews of the books on a
blog and add a lead-in to your services. I think you’ll find LinkedIn is all
you need though to reach the business community and those entrepreneurs that
need this service.

Making Money Flipping Websites

This next way to make money online is one I’ve done for extra cash but can be a legit business through flipping websites.

Websites are the digital real estate of the 21st
century. Not only are people creating and developing websites just like you
might develop a piece of raw land into a hotel, there’s a huge opportunity in
taking neglected sites, rehabbing them and flipping for a profit.

You see, it takes nothing to start a website.
Less than three bucks a month and you can be online.

Growing that site, knowing what it takes to
get traffic and make it a legit business is something entirely different. More
than 90% of the blogs and websites out there don’t last more than six months.
People get frustrated and they give up, they abandon their digital real estate.

That’s where you come in. You pick these
neglected sites up for nothing, rehab them to get some basic traffic and start
making money, then flip them in three months for a huge profit.

I did this with a dating website I bought in
2015 from another blogger. The site was making less than $100 a month but had
legitimate content and I knew the blogger had genuinely tried to make it work.

I bought the site for $500 and started
boosting traffic with regular posts and some search engine optimization. I was
able to increase income to $350 a month within three months and ended up
selling it for $5,000 nine months later. That’s $4,500 on one site alone and I
know people that do this full-time, working on five or six sites at a time. makes it easy to buy and sell websites though you’ll also want to
get involved in an online community of bloggers to pick up sites.

Now this is something that takes a little work to understand how to turnaround a site but there are a few things you can do to boost blog traffic and income that will get you a better price.

First is to get involved in a community of
bloggers, either one in a specific niche or just general blogging. Look for
groups on Facebook that are active in posting but not just spamming their
recent article. You’ll learn a lot from these groups and they’ll be an instant
source for sharing your articles.

Don’t try to be on every social media platform
for your blog. You don’t need to jump on the newest platform, just focus on
building a community on Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest at first by sharing
your posts and engaging with others. For new blogs with little Google traffic,
this is going to be your biggest traffic source at first.

Finally, make sure you diversify your income
on the site. This is the biggest mistake I see with bloggers where maybe they
rely exclusively on ads or affiliate income. By doing some sponsored posts,
printables and even self-publishing, you can grow a blog to making a couple
hundred a month very quickly and it’s going to be more consistent.

Make Money Online as a Wellness Coach

This next work from home gig is again taking a
traditional job and bringing it online as a health and wellness coach.

Health is taking a back seat to all the stress
and the rush of our daily lives. Wellness is an even bigger idea that includes
mental affirmations like confidence and self-worth and as bad as most
Americans’ health is…their wellness is stage four terminal.

But you’re saying, there are thousands of
books and websites on all of this, from how to live healthy to self-improvement
but we’re obviously not following it. What we need is a real person, someone to
help guide us on that path and keep us on it daily.

Now the biggest thing stopping most people
from doing this type of consulting business will be those nagging little voices
saying you’re not an expert. That impostor syndrome and fear people will think
you’re a fraud.

Listen up folks because this is going to help
you in any business idea. You CAN do this. You can become the expert and your
personal experience has more value than you know. Putting yourself on that
personal journey to turn your own health around, to build the self-confidence
for success, that experience is all you need to drive that transformation in

People are going to relate to your story, your
transformation, and they’re going to want to make it their own.

Yeah, you might not be the six-pack stud in
the infomercials. You might not be the Miss America contestant with perfect
teeth. You’re a real person that has fought for this change in your life and
with the special knowledge to make it a reality for others.

Now with this type of business, one of those success hacks we’ll talk about later is going to be critical. You need to set up multiple income streams here so you’re not just relying on that consulting. You can offer bi-weekly calls, progress tracking and guidance. You can do this individually or serving a group. Even charging something like $15 a week per person and you can easily get to six-figures on this type of business.

Making Money as a Virtual Assistant

One more way to make money from home before those three success secrets, becoming a virtual assistant.

This one is wide open from basic admin tasks,
organization and scheduling to specialized jobs. Now I know this is nothing
new, there are lots of virtual assistants out there competing for jobs…but why
is it so hard to find a good one?

Seriously, I have been looking for a good
assistant for almost a year and friends in my blogger community, they are
always looking for help. It is so hard to find someone that can do this job

That means, do it well and you can charge a
premium for the work, from $20 an hour up to $35 an hour and more.

You can find clients from some of the
freelancing sites like Upwork and but the best jobs are found by
engaging in Facebook groups and just getting to know a group of business
owners. You’re going to learn specifically what kinds of tasks they need done
and you’ll be able to get a job without competing on a global level.

Three Secrets to a Successful Online Business

Now I want to reveal those three secrets to
being successful in any online business. More than anything else, these three
ideas will help you get started and make money online.

First is don’t think you have to be THE expert
in a topic to offer advice or have a business. 
I briefly hinted at the psychological phenomenon called impostor
syndrome earlier where those nagging little voices in your head say, “Who the
hell am I to be giving advice?”

The problem here is that people let those
nagging little voices win. They let that fear of rejection keep them from ever
getting started.

Now this doesn’t mean you can just jump into any business idea, any topic, and start talking like you know what you’re doing. You need to do your research, learn how things work, but I’m going to give you two very powerful ideas here.

First is to share your own personal story and
use that to help people create their own transformation. For example, you might
not be the world’s leading expert on paying off debt but you’ve got your own
experience paying off your credit cards or budgeting or whatever.

When you share your story, it helps people
relate. They can see that story as their own, learn from the mistakes and the successes.
It becomes personal for them too and they’re much more likely to follow the

This is so important, creating that personal
connection through stories. How many people read through how many millions of
blog posts every day about saving money? I’d bet that 99% of them fail at
saving, fail at their goals, because those blog posts fail to use that personal
connection to motivate people.

So don’t underestimate the power of your own
personal story in being the expert.

Also is to focus on a single transformation
with your customers. If you don’t have decades of experience as a fitness
instructor, don’t try to turn your customers into Arnold Schwarzenegger. Focus
on one thing you can do for them and make that your business.

For example here, maybe you focus on healthy
eating and don’t try to be an overall health & wellness coach. Don’t try to
bite off everything, trying to tell people how to exercise and their diet and
everything else. Learn how to drive that one transformation, that one goal. You’ll
become an expert in this one idea very quickly and you can gradually expand
your services into other parts of the topic.

Our next success hack here is to develop
multiple income streams from your business.

This one is huge and is something I see most
people miss. They focus on that one income idea, maybe coaching one-on-one or
flipping websites and never make as much as they could.

The idea here is that in every business, there
are different ways to make money. You might not get rich on any single idea but
put three or four or five of these income streams together and you’ve really
got something.

I only net about two grand a month from self-publishing but add that to another four grand from affiliates, three to four grand from YouTube ads and a few other sources and I’m consistently over ten grand a month.

All these income sources, they’re within that
content creator, blogger kind of business model so it’s not like I’m trying to
juggle multiple businesses. The core is creating information, I’ve just found a
way to repackage it differently and use each of those as an income stream.

For your own business, this might mean
something like creating short-guides to sell or full-length books. You can do
one-on-one consulting and also offer group coaching. You can put what you know
into a simple checklist, something people can buy as a download for the main

Our third business hack, and this is another
one that so many online entrepreneurs miss, is really spending some time to
develop a marketing plan.

It is not enough to have a great product.
There are thousands, hundreds of thousands of great products out there, but
they fail as a business because they can’t get their message in front of

Getting your message in front of people, that
first step in your marketing plan, means some kind of distribution strategy.

This might mean developing your own blog or
YouTube channel. It might mean finding popular blogs or channels in the topic
and connecting with the owners so they let you spread your message on their
site. The other route here is paying for advertising on these sites or through
social media.

But having that distribution isn’t enough,
having a blog or channel isn’t going to be enough to make your business a
success. The second step in your marketing plan is how to guide people through
the buying decision, sharing your message and making it their own.

This means creating what’s called a marketing funnel. It’s a way of getting people into a process, maybe by collecting their email address, then guiding them through the decision-making process to your product.

We just don’t buy things we see advertised. We see so many commercials every day, we’re blind to it. We need that extra push to make the decision.

So as a business owner, you need to capture people’s attention and get them on your list. You can do this with a freebie, so maybe a free checklist or download. Then you warm that potential customer up with emails sharing your personal experience with the product or with client testimonials. You help them see how much better their life can be and then, only then do you present your product as a solution.

It has never been easier to make money online from home. It’s not just about blogging or being a YouTube star. There are hundreds of ways to make money working from home and with nothing but a computer.
