You’ll also have to decide whether or not to make your ebook exclusive to Amazon Kindle through their KDP Select program. I’ve done it temporarily (you enroll for 90 days at a time), and there are some advantages, like special promotional and pricing opportunities. But eventually, you might like to offer your book through other channels (more on this below).
Before I start this write-up, let me give you a warning. The money-making idea that will be mentioned here is a bit unorthodox. You won’t earn from watching videos, unlocking your phones, driving your car, mystery shopping, answering surveys, doing other online tasks and the likes. The opportunity to earn that I will be talking about here is being a Chat Hostess.

The specific plan I teach is designed to make you $5,000 per month in passive income earnings, based on 10 websites, with each website having a targeted earnings level of at least $500 each. Once you understand the process though, you can decide to build 20 of these websites, or 100! When you stop is up to you (and yes, there are people making tens of thousands of dollars per month on the Internet based on these concepts – they just love the work and don’t ever stop building new websites or expanding their current ones!).

KGB is a mobile text service through which chat agents answer requests sent in to them by different online users. The directory assistance service is considered to be a leader in the United States and is outsourced by many companies to work on their behalf. However, residents of Canada as well as the Philippines can also apply for positions as support agents. Payment is between three cents to ten cents for each question answered.
This book is a definite must read, and in the top 5 out of this list.  My favorite use for this book is to help people decide what business model to pursue – for a start anyway.  ie info product v membership site v affiliate marketing.  Since Joel compares them all and shows you the major challenges for each (along with how-to guides), the task becomes a lot easier.
Use video-sharing networks to make money from ad revenues. Websites like MetaCafe.com will pay you $5 each time your video is viewed 1,000 times, at the time of publication. To upload your videos on the website's server, you will need to register an account with them. Click on the "Upload" button located on the homepage. Provide your personal information in the appropriate text fields, and press the "Create Account" button when you're done.
Rather than making money through subscriptions, YouTube channels are based on a traditional advertising system. Meaning the more viewers you get, the more you make. Once you’re approved for the YouTube Partner Program and can start including ads on your videos, with every 1,000 views, you will make approximately $2-$4. Which might not seem like a lot, but if you have 100 videos with 5,000 views a month each, that would be $1,000–$2,000 already. Just imagine if your videos start hitting millions of views!

Support agents hired by the site are expected to recommend features of different products to users on the site. They are also required to offer consultation services on sales matters on behalf of the companies that have hired them to recommend products as well as services on their behalf. Payment on the site is hourly and usually ranges between nine to fourteen dollars for each hour.


Similar to what Chris Guthrie did with his Amazon niche sites back in 2008-09, you should take every dollar you earn and reinvest it into your passive income business…pay for more content to be created, for better (and quality) backlinks to be built, to buy new niche sites etc.  At least for the first few years.  Chris did this, and it allowed him to go from $0 to $100,000 in just over 12 months.
When I lived in Colorado, I took a break from exploring the mountains to write a little ebook about ultralight backpacking. I wrote it in a few days, which is possible when you write about a subject you know and love, and then published it on Amazon’s Kindle Direct Publishing platform (KDP), along with a few other ebooks I had written. Having once self-published a print book for $850, I liked the zero-cost aspect of going this route.
This site has availed a number of resources to those that choose their site as an avenue through which they provide answers to questions. As a support agent on the site, you can choose to communicate with an online user through regular chat or video chat. However, phone conversations are also allowed as long as the client is agreeable to that form of communication. When working with a customer, you have to agree on the amount you will charge as a first step, and then decide on the mode of communication, which may be chat or phone.

It’s sometimes hard to comprehend just how much people love t-shirts. And with the right niche, marketing, and tools, you can create an online t-shirt business that makes you extra money online while you sleep. (Even Bloomberg and Forbes feature stories from entrepreneurs who've done just that.) Services like TeeSpring make it easier than ever to create a t-shirt drop-shipping business where they handle the sales, printing, and shipping, and you’re only responsible for design and marketing. For more tips, check out this simple guide to launching and marketing an online clothing store by my friends over at Selz.
Last but not least, you can also earn money online by building an online community, although the monetization strategies you can pursue will vary a lot depending on your goals. You can build a community with a blog, for example. You can also build an online forum and charge people for membership. You could even build up a Facebook group and use your influence there to sell and promote products. 

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.
According to CheatSheet.com, AbeBooks will “buy back” old textbooks or other lightly used reading copies, and they pay by check. Similarly, Powell’s buys used copies but has a very strict policy about the condition of your books. Expect to receive a check - but if you plan on buying additional books, you’ll get more bang for your buck by taking store credit.

Clearly, there's a lot of demand on Amazon, and if any product is going to sell, it's going to sell well on Amazon. But the goal here is to source the right products that will easily sell at the world's largest online retailer. Generally, products between $10 and $50 sell very well here. Just be sure to do the right market research before jumping on this bandwagon.


My next self-funded business hit $160,000 in revenue in its first year alone. After that first taste of self-made success, I’ve gone on to sign consulting contracts worth tens of thousands of dollars with startups like LinkedIn and Google, launch profitable online courses, and build a following of hundreds of thousands for this blog and my podcast series.
If you’re interested in trying this, go give it a try. The company is legit. Some companies might do a bait and switch and require you to do phone sex. But on Flirtbucks, all you do is chat and be friendly. But as the name implies, you gotta be juuuuuuust a bit flirty. And that’s where the real skill comes in. You need to be slightly flirtatious, but not overtly sexual. And staying within those limits takes a lot of skill.

Next, you need to set up and build your YouTube channel. Your YouTube channel is your homebase for all your content. If you already have a Google account for Gmail or Google Drive, then you can use that to log-in to YouTube and start setting up your channel. Pick a username that works for you and is memorable (if you’re using an existing Google account you’ll have to edit your username in Google+).

Holly told me she started writing content in 2011. At the time, she still worked a full-time job but created content online part-time to supplement her income. Over time, she was able to double and triple her rates until she could quit her full-time job to write. These days, she makes bank as a freelance writer and teaches others to do the same via her online course, Earn More Writing.
More than half a billion products are sold on Amazon every month, making it an incredible opportunity to make money online. But, like everything else that involves making money online, you have to do quite a bit of work to earn it. One option on Amazon is to find products that are already made and buy and sell them at a discount. For example, you could research generic products such as clocks, keychains and mugs to attach to your brand. For an incredible deep dive on how to make extra money with this strategy, check out how digital marketer Neil Patel recently did this as a public experiment right here on his blog.
You don’t have to write a book in a week, although it might not be as difficult as you think when you consider than many ebooks are as short as 6,000 words or consist of a collection of articles previously published by the author. Whether it takes a week or a year to write your book, focus on quality. Edit, edit, edit, and find a volunteer to read your work and offer an objective critique. Then get ready to publish.
