The Ultimate Newbie’s Guide To Making Money Online

New Reality

Once you read this guide your world will change. You will be living in a reality very few people even believe exist. Something I find astonishing.

As I go about the world my mindset is completely different. I feel like an outlier. When I go to a convenience store or grocery I just wonder if they know. Do these people working for minimum wage know about online.

Don’t they understand how easy it is?

Don’t they know they can be making money online passively? 

If only they knew that the amount of time they put into that low pay job in just a week could be spent building up an autopilot online business.

If you are one of those people, working too hard for your pay, you can break out. You will get out of that reality and into the one where passive income living is real.

One where you can do what you want when you want.

That is my reality and I want it to become yours.

 

It’s Real and Anyone Can Do It

Earning online is real. I literally just watched a friend of mine bank over $60,000 from a digital product launch. He came over here to America with nothing. Why can’t you just copy him and do the same.

In terms of skills and resources there is nothing that makes you any different from him. Please understand that.

In fact, understanding that simple idea is what got me to earning a full time online (and growing).

Smart Passive Income is an awesome website filled with great content. But the best part is he posts monthly income reports. I encourage you to check out his site for motivation. Patt Flynn definitely inspired me.

Mike From Maine is another great one. He posts monthly income reports as well. He makes most of his money from just affiliate sales by interviewing the product creators.

 

All of these exmples are made to get you to understand this is real. Most importantly, look at the history of these guys. Patt Flynn quit his job and started at zero.

Mike From Maine did the same thing.

Nothing sets you apart.

So I don’t care where you’re at. You can be living in your freakin car! You can and you do have the capabilities of making a living online. Everybody does.


There are just these little factors that seem to turn most people off. But they are all wrong:

  • It isn’t real (see above)
  • Make money online is a scam (not sure why, but this is heavily pushed on average online individuals)
  • I don’t have the skills (skills? clicking “install wordpress” and “publish” are not really skills)
  • I don’t have the time (just cut out the tv and the endless Youtube spirals and you’ll have time)
  • I don’t have the money (don’t worry I give you ways to earn $100/day with $0 to start, yes, real methods)
  • I don’t care to be rich (very interesting one but don’t worry, you don’t have to be. The idea is having time not money. Plus, give it away if you don’t want it.)

If you have any other things stopping you. Please let me know by leaving a comment at the bottom there.

 

Why Choose Online?

Passive Income

Passive Income

Passive Income

Okay really though, passive income is the whole point. When you  work for a salary you have to spend your real life time to earn that money. There is no possible way for you to earn that wage or salary without giving time in exchange.

When you work online and setup a smart business, you can earn money while you have fun doing something else.

No Time Trading

While I am playing video games I get sales. I get people signing up for my lists. I am not trading my time for money. Passive income means you earn without having to put in work/time.

This means you can do whatever you want when you want. More time with your family, more time having fun, more money to buy the things you want.

Smart Life Choice

It’s just smart. You have an equal chance of growing a giant business online as you do getting a job after college. You get one life. Make the decision that allows you to enjoy the most. Need more reasons?

Okay before I get into the nitty gritty, you need some quick education on the common terms you’ll encounter online.

 

Niche – A niche is simply a specific topic. For example, you might love guitars, so you choose guitar playing as your niche. A subniche would be digging in even further and making thte topic super specific. So instead of “how to play a guitar”, you would target “how to play metal guitar”. now instead of getting all guitar players you get ones who want to play electric and also want to learn to play metal.

Affiliate Marketing – Affiliates are people who sell the creator’s product for a commission. So if I am talking about playing metal guitar I may sell a course found on Clickbank. When someone buys through my link I get a 75% commission.

Product Creation – When you create a product, you are now the one in charge of affiliates. They can sell your product for 100% commission but affiliates can sell it for you for a percentage. Common product types are eBooks, video courses, and mp3, usually for interviews. There are more though.

List Building/Email Marketing – When you build a list, you are adding real people to an email campaign you control. You may be subscribed to some lists right now. If you ever recieve consistent emails from a business or person, you are on a list right now.

To build a list you need an autoresponder. An autoresponder will manage all the emails and people on your list. You can also setup automated emails to go out and much more.

Funnel – A funnel is a marketing system created to grow sales and your list. A sales funnel includes the front end product then leads to a more expensive edition that product.

So instead of just selling your ebook you can upsell a more detailed video course. A list funnel is a funnel where you guide traffic to a page which collects emails, then after they sign up you might lead them to a sales page.

Domain/Hosting – Domain and hosting is what allows you to create a website/blog. The domain is the name of your site and the hosting is what allows you to edit it.

You must have both to have a customized website. But if you have nothing you can get both for free using a a free website host like Blogger (that is where I started).

Feel free to comment with any terms you need or know.

There are too many ways to earn money. Not just online but offline too.

But how do you earn money online?

Well, I decided to share some examples rather than explain it blatantly.

So let’s get through the four ways people earn money online.

Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate marketing is selling products for others through whichever means you want. You can do this by promoting to an email list of active buyers or advertising to targeted groups on FB.

You can create a blog that mentions the product or do some advertising on Bing or Google.

How does it work?

Go to this website. Life Longboard and click one of the links to the longboards. Each of them links to Amazon or a review where I can pre-sell first then lead to Amazon.

After Amazon opens the user will have a choice of buying the product. If they choose to buy the product I will get a 8% commission.

So, in other words, if the product costs $189.00 I will earn $15.

How do I get that money?

This particular case is done through Amazon Associates so they give you the usual two options of a check or direct deposit. Nearly every website that sells a product has an affiliate program like this — you just need to look for it.

There are affiliate programs for info products that you would find on Clickbank, JVZoo, or Warrior Plus. There are thousands, maybe millions more but those are the easy most profitable ones to get into.

Above I have an example using a $189 product where I get a small $15 commission. In the sites mentioned, most vendors give you a 75% commission. So, using my example, I would make $141 at that commission rate. Kind of a big difference.

Even better, there are programs where you can earn recurring commissions if you are selling a membership type of product. So you don’t just earn $141, you earn $141 every single month.

Why would anybody click those links?

That is what making money online is all about. I am solving a problem or need. When people search through Google or Bing or maybe even Yahoo, they will find my website.

For this example I am using longboards for my niche. I really love them and knew it would be easy to write about them. I also remember when I was searching Google for tips on buying a longboard.

I would type in things like: “best longboard brands”, “best beginner longboards”, “best board for cruisers”, etc.

So when I type in these things I would get a website like the one above which answers those “buyer keywords”.

So the result is — I have a question, someone provides an answer, and if the answer is a product, I will buy it as long as it is a solution to my problem.

Expanding

Internet marketing is like a sport. We start off with something simple but it is up to the creatives to make it something more. When researching the history of longboarding, I realized this.

It started of as a board that you just roll on. Just to get the board the way it is now, we needed someone to be creative in creating the board and its urethane wheels.

After the board itself was alright people didn’t just stand on it and roll. Some brave random person decided they could slide and drift around curves in the road.

Then after that someone said maybe I can go 60 mph down a hill with the right parts. After that, someone decided they could actually dance on the board as it rolls.

You see? After we are given a medium, it is important for us to be creative and invent new ways to utilize that medium.

What on earth are you talking about, Hannah?

Well we are given the ability to earn affiliate commissions off of other people’s products. It is up to us to utilize the creative ways people have found to maximize those profits — and just maybe, you can invent a new way too.

For example, that niche site above earns me affiliate commissions but there are more ways to do that. One way I could make commission from longboards is to pay Youtubers to put my link in their description. Or I can make my own videos with that affiliate link in the description.

But what if I created a site that gave away good information on a topic. Then I have an ad for a related product on the site?

I could answer people’s questions on Yahoo answers then recommend a good product for them to buy.

Other ways are creating a FB fan page for longboard fans and promote my links to them. I could go on and on.

Simply put, it is important to be creative and utilize everything you can to earn money and maximize profits — in a reasonable way.

So yes, you can earn money by being an affiliate, but the question is — what method will you use to earn those commissions?

That is what Everything Income is here to answer.

Product Creation

So we know you can earn money by affiliate commissions. And that is great! I mean, you don’t have to create anything, you just sell.

But consider this? When you sell a product for somebody you work super hard to get as many sales as you can. But think about? You are not the only one.

There are hundreds, maybe thousands, of other affiliates selling that same product.

So we move onto…

Product Creation.

Instead of being an affiliate selling for somebody else, you need to be the product creator. You want to create a product that hundreds of affiliates will line up to promote for you.

You create this product once using, a medium like JVZoo, WarriorPlus, or Clickbank, and you are good to go. Those named sites already have thousands of affiliates signed up waiting for a good product to promote.

Yes, you do have to pay the affiliates a certain percentage, but if you sell it yourself, you get 100% commissions — cause it’s yours.

But does paying 50% really matter if you have thousands of people selling it to everyone they can?

No it does not. Either way you are getting paid to do nothing. Your job is to make the product and recruit affiliates. Your job is done after that.

Earning even $100 is good, but many launches do well over $10,000 and can range into the millions over time. I just watched a guy pull in $80,000 in two days because he had super affiliates promoting his product. He didn’t have do anything but create it.

Well, that sounds awesome! How do I start?

It is as simple as this. Choose a niche to write about. If you sign up to my list you get the Golden Niche List free which is an awesome book filled with evergreen and profitable niches.

After you choose your niche, open up Word, and write about it.

And, that’s it! After that you just upload the product to your selling medium, create a compelling sales page, and you’re good to go.

Selling A Service or Business

The next way you can earn online is by selling a service or selling a business.

Selling a Service

Selling a service is simply performing a skilled task in exchange for money. You can sell directly or you can use a freelance service like freelancer, upwork, or Fiverr, to name a few.

For example, if you are a graphic designer, you can have a design website where you sell that service. You can offer logo design for $50 or more. You can put yourself on 99 Designs if you wanted.

Just think of the skills you have to offer and consider making a site like this or this. Are you a marketer? Consultant? Designer? What? Figure it out or maybe I can help you.

It is what I love, so if you sign up to my list, I will very quickly give you some consultation to help you figure out what you can sell as a service or where you should start online.

Selling a Business

This has been happening for forever. People build up profitable businesses and sell them for a profit. You can do the same with websites. You can build one up, generate traffic, and then sell it for 20x what you make from it per month.

This can be applied offline too. You can build up an app and sell it, you can build up anything and sell if it has value.

One really good way of earning is to actually buy a site on Flippa, fix it up, and sell.

To do this you need some basic digital marketing skills.

Advertising

When you have a website that gets good traffic, people will pay you to place ads on it. Buysellads is the site of choice for many because it is easy to buy and sells ads there.

I’m sure you’ve seen it. Sites where there are so many ads the content is jumping up and down.

The website earns some whopping income from stuff like that. So if you build up a pure content website, you can be earning some big money from only selling ads.

Get Paid To…

There are actual things you can do to earn money online that doesn’t involve a website or ads or affiliate marketing. I hesitate to even mention it because I consider it to be mostly a waste of time. I mean, why spend time filling out surveys for ten cents if you can be building up a profitable website.

But anyway, if you would like to get to fill out surveys, you can do so with a site like Cash Crate. Cash Crate is the most popular site for making money from surveys.

I don’t recommend it long term, but it is great short term. If you don’t want to write with iWriter, you can earn just about that amount on Cash Crate.

I will admit that it is more fun answering questions than writing out articles. I did actually use Cash Crate a long time ago to get the income to afford hosting and domain.

Here is another reality

You can work on Cash Crate and build up about a hundred dollars. With that money you can pay someone to write 20 articles for a site you want to create.

Now you have built up a profitable website with no work and only filling out surveys :).

So for short term and expense covering, I recommend Cash Crate or iWriter but it is really not for long term if you intend on earning a full time income online.

Where should YOU Start?

Well, it depends on your income. I explain how to decide here in the New Here section.

Pretty much, if you are dead broke, you need to earn money first to afford hosting, domains, autoresponders, and advertising.

But after you have enough money, you should do what I will always recommend and wish more than anything I did this when I started online. That is starting an online business.

An online business to me is working in a niche you love. A niche with a lot of people under it. It is having a list of people who love that topic too and selling them products that you would by yourself.

An online business is all about writing on topics you love and growing a list as result. Then with that list you earn more sales. With more traffic to your site you earn more sales.

If you look at the most successful people online they earn most of their income from this. It is a wonderful cycle that leads to exponential growth.

Don’t Look Over This

Please, please, please do not look over this. I have gone through it all. From a broke confused naive newbie to a successful entrepreneur.

The biggest mistake you can make is looking everything here over and moving onto something else. Please don’t do that. I don’t want you to fail. I want you to be successful and that starts with being smart with your actions.

I would read something and easily bookmark for later. Never to return. I didn’t want a list, I didn’t want to put in the hard work and as a result I failed for years.

I don’t know what kept me coming back.

By telling you this I am hoping to give you a chance to not make the mistakes I made.

The most important thing I can say is that the hard work you are avoiding is barely a week’s worth of work. I’ve built websites in a day. It is not hard work. It just seems that way.

So don’t look over this. Work hard now to reap the benefits later; the greatest lesson I have ever learned in my life.

Getting Started – sign up, again and call to action

So are you pumped? Are you ready to get started?
