The 101 Ways of Making Money Online From Home
I am really excited to be finally starting this blog. The domain name will be very close to a year old already and I am sure of that… This is the first post and I am going to be sticking it to the top because it will be very important, especially for newbies who are new to all these. I will be taking about several ways by which people are making money online from home, or even toilet… Just anywhere as long as you can access the internet… We call this INTERNET MARKETING.
Before I go on, I think there is a little need to say something about myself.
My name is Idris Adeleye and at the time of writing this post, I am a 24 years old guy. I am a Nigerian and I’ve been in the Internet marketing for some years now… My debut was in 2009 when I was 19. I’d leave other stories for now… You can learn more from my About Me page.
So, about making money online… if you are a complete newbie then you might have some problems understanding how the whole thing works… But what I will do in this post is make that easy for you.
First off, you need to understand that when they say “Make Money Online” or “Internet Marketing”, they are referring to any effort, or let’s say every effort put in place to make money from the internet. It doesn’t matter how this effort is being directed, as long as the aim is to “make money” and it’s through the “internet”, then it’s simply “Internet Marketing”.
Whether you are trying to sell an ebook (information marketing), promote your music online, share hilarious videos on Youtube (and allowed ads to run on your video), etc. Even if you have a local business and you’re trying to drive people to your office from a place like Facebook… That is all “Internet marketing”.
Now since you already understood what Making Money Online From Home is, let’s talk about the several ways, I mean the 101 ways to go about doing it… I will do my best to get this list to 101, but if I can’t you will have to pardon me. LOL. But I will continue to update the list as I find more methods… The good thing about the internet is, you discover new things every day. That’s why I love this whole madness 🙂
The 101 Ways of Making Money Online From Home
1. Information Marketing
This have to do selling ideas to people through the internet. And these ideas can come in any form… You can sell information on how people can lose weight. You can sell them information on how to get their relationship into a good shape. You can sell to them on how to bring their children up in the right way. You can even sell them info on how to get out of debt, or a tutorial on how to use a specific software, or even how to operate a computer. The list is so endless.
Such information can be a packaged into an ebook, an audio or even as a video. Some people can even go ahead to sell it as a “seminar” or the current online form of that called “webinar”.
2. Digital Product Marketing
Digital product marketing has to do with selling of digital/downloadable stuffs online. These stuffs can include video files, Audio files, softwares, pictures, and so on.
Actually, I should have made this the first on the list and never make mention on the first one (i.e. information marketing. But they are not totally the same for example, in the first one, you can decide to package a video on a CD and sell through the internet. When people pay, you can ship it to them. But here, you simply have to just upload the video file somewhere and send them the download link.
And also, softwares for sure won’t be an info product, right?
3. Affiliate Marketing
This is a bit more easier to explain that the above ones. With Affiliate marketing, you just have to look for someone selling a product like in the above methods. Most of these people allow people to promote their products and get paid a certain percentage of commission… And this act of promoting other people’s product to get paid is called Affiliate Marketing.
There are several market places online where you can find vendors that allows promotions. But the two most popular marketplaces are Clickbank and Amazon. But lately, JVzoo has been making some good names for themselves as well.
You can create a blog like this one. Share ideas with people and make money through adverts or even affiliate recommendations… Blogging is one way you can make drive people to your affiliate offers. I will talk about this more in the future.
If you have a certain skill, you can help offer your services online to people. This is very straight forward… The easiest way to go about this business is to look for a freelance marketplace like elance, freelancer, etc. But the only one I’ve had success with is Fiverr. Learn how I am making 4 figures monthly from Fiverr here.
6. Email Marketing
This has to do with building an email list of people of a certain interest and marketing to them through email broadcasts/newsletters… Most people use free offers as the bait to get people to sign up into their list.
In order for this to be very effective, you will need an email autoresponder. I started out mine with Getresponse, but these days, I use Aweber because Getresponse gave me a whole lot of headache (I might blog about my experiences with both providers soon). There is also a cheaper service like TrafficWave and a completely free service like Listwire… But I don’t recommend either of those except you can’t afford the first two.
