Believe it or not, you might already have most of an ebook written already. If you are already making money with a blog, those blog posts could be turned into an ebook with some editing. Simply collect relevant blog posts into an order that makes sense, make any needed edits so that references that aren’t relevant are taken out, and add an introduction and conclusion, and you’re done. Any blog posts you use should cover the same or related topics and work well together.
Today, if you're at all serious about succeeding in any endeavor, whether online or offline, you have to deliver enormous amounts of value. Yes, you have to do the most amount of work for the least initial return. This is especially true online. Why? Because it takes time to build authority and create an audience, two primary ingredients necessary to succeed in the wonderful world of commerce on the web.
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.
When was the last time you went to a new restaurant without looking it up online beforehand? Or bought a product that didn’t have at least a few 5-star reviews? It seems like more and more our world is run on reviews. And you can make money online by writing them. Get started by creating accounts on sites like Vindale research, Software Judge, FameBit, CrowdTap, Influence Central, and Modern Mom. However, before you run off and start writing, be sure to check the small print on each of these sites. Writing reviews isn’t a huge source of guaranteed income and you want to make sure that it’s worth your time before you get going. 

Tied into this point, I like how Scott discourages big dreaming from the point of view that when you try to solve too big a problem, you’ll normally fail since you don’t have the resources to tackle it – eg don’t reinvent say ecommerce platforms with complex software, instead create an online video-driven course on how to build online stores using WordPress (as an example!). 

If you don’t mind doing other people’s chores, then TaskRabbit is a great option for making money online. Earn extra income by walking your neighbor’s dog or mowing Mr. Smith’s lawn. It might seem like not the most lucrative option, but the top taskers reportedly earn as much as $7000 a month, making this a full-time way to make money online for some.
If you’ve got experience and expertise in a specific area of business, there are hundreds if not thousands of business owners who would love to jump on a phone call and pick your brain. This can be an easy way to make extra money online and to hone your skills to use in your consulting or freelance business. Sites like Clarity.fm let you create a profile where entrepreneurs and business owners can pre-pay to book a phone call with you for a set amount of time. Whether you’re an expert in raising money for startups, building apps, or running a restaurant, you can make extra money selling a few minutes of your time to people in need.
Now next, you’ll want to pick a WordPress theme from somewhere like ThemeForest, Elegant Themes or OptimizePress. This is the barebones design of your site, which you can then customize with your own branding, copy, and images. That being said, you don’t want to cheap out. It costs less than $100 to buy a theme that will make your website look professional (and you can upgrade to a completely custom design once you get the business going). 

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.


I say that, because I remember really taking the lessons on research and how-to writing style to heart.  Implementing them saved me 100s of hours of wasted time…you know the kind of time where you spend 10 hours aimlessly searching the net for some nuggets of gold to inspire your writing on a certain topic and then 5 hours trying to write the first 2 paragraphs!
However, I think that while the book has a walk-through for pretty much anything you need to set up your business sites, it would have benefited from real life examples. This would have made it easier for those of us who are still learning the process. The videos from the Resources section of the website the book has links to do help somewhat with that though.
Keep in mind though, you don’t need a website to do sponsored content since you can also get paid if you have a lot of social media followers. My wife has a pretty big Instagram following, and she gets all kinds of sponsorships. Not only does she get paid in cash, but we get a lot of free stuff, too. We’ve received free rugs, free lights, and free carpet cleaners. She only promotes things she loves though, so this strategy works really well for her.
So, where are we supposed to turn to make money the legitimate way online? This isn't just about generating passive income; this is also about finding ways and means to create an active income through the conveniences afforded to us by the internet that will not only help us with our debt obligations, but also empower us to save, invest and get really rich in the future.

Find a profitable niche: We’ve talked about this a lot. But, where are you most comfortable. What niche do your skills, values, and interests intersect? Do you have 10 years of experience as a technical writer? Do you have long-standing PR relationships that’ll be invaluable in helping startups launch a successful crowdfunding campaign? Determine what makes your value unique, and lean heavily on showcasing that strength to your potential clients. 

We suppose you already know that you can find so much online ways to earn money from your computer. Some of the ways are cool and easy, the others are a bit boring but at the end of the day, you still get cash for simple stuff! So, today we’ll present you the ways to make money by chatting online. You must be confused, right? We all do it daily for no money, why would that be paid? You’ll see how to do it in the text below!
As long as there is still the written word, there will always be editors. Freelance editing and proofreading not only pays a decent hourly wage, it also gives you the chance to read about potentially interesting topics too. What's more, pursuing freelance writing & editing as a business idea can afford you a lifestyle that lets you travel the world as a digital nomad. You can find lots of job postings from companies and individuals in need of writing, proofreading, and editing services on Upwork, which makes this a high-demand opportunity to make money online.

Make Money Online: Roadmap of a Dot Com Mogul doesn’t hit bookstores until May 1 but retailers have been swamped trying to keep up with the demand. Jeff Bezos, founder and CEO of Amazon.com said, “Never before have we seen this level of interest for such a niche product. Reaching one million pre-orders a full month ahead of release is quite the accomplishment. A well-deserved kudos goes out to John Chow and Michael Kwan.”
Chat Hosting is a work from home job specifically for women over 18 years of age. The only way for women to earn as a Chat Hostess is to be “very friendly” with their clients. They have to chat with them about anything under the sun and that’s the gist of the job. What kind of online company will let you work from home by chatting with their clients? The company is called FlirtBucks.
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.
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.
This isn’t to scare you off. I simply want you to know that this guide is going to focus solely on ways to make real, sustainable extra income online. Not just a few bucks. I want to share all the mistakes I've made that got me to where I am now so that you don’t have to go through them, and can build a successful online source of income for yourself.
Also, I know from my personal experience that when you only do something because you think it’s a money-spinner you end up nearly killing yourself to get the idea over the line.  I remember creating a careers advice site that bored me to tears.  Every word I wrote, hurt a little.  All 200,000+ words!  Do not put yourself through this pain.  I know I won’t ever again.
Take a few dollars and a pair of scissors into your local copy shop (many big box office supply stores will do this for you as well. If you don’t have scissors, just borrow them from the store shelf. Just be sure to leave them in the store so they don’t accuse you of shoplifting). Give the clerk at least 4 two dollar bills (it’s more efficient that way because you can get multiple copies on one sheet) Ask for double sided color copies. Should they give you any grief just say it’s just play money for your kid. They’ll probably think it’s fake money anyways since it’s a two dollar bill.

This is yet another online chat website that pays people to chat and flirt. However, this company focuses on women as models and encourages people to share their photos through their text messaging service. This does not mean that you will be forced to share your photos. No, you can just chat with men without sending them your photos. You are your own boss and the more you chat the more money you earn. The good thing about this company is that it allows women 18 years and older from all over the world to participate.


Every year, hundreds of millions of documents are notarized in the United States: wills, mortgages, citizenship forms, handgun applications. While for decades, this has all been done in person, there is a budding crop of sites that allow notaries to take their services online. If you’re already a notary, you can sell your services online. Or, if you want to get started, check out the National Notary’s checklist for becoming a certified notary.
So because of my ok experience with them but had to stop because i became a mommy my best friend wanted to become a flirtbucks chat hostess too. unfortunately hers isnt such a good experience rite from the start. she was already wary of giving away TMI like id and other sensitive personal stuff but what made it worse was she never got confirmation as a member! So now she is all panicky and stuff over identity theft and and stolen personal information so i dont think flirtbucks is up to snuff at the moment. It might be a good idea to stay away from them rite now!
NEW YORK, New York. (April 1, 2010) – Morgan James Publishing, is pleased to announce that Make Money Online: Roadmap of a Dot Com Mogul by John Chow and Michael Kwan, has hit number 1 on the New York Times Best Sellers list. What’s even more amazing about this accomplishment is that the book isn’t even out yet. This is the first time in NYT history that any book has made the Best Sellers list on pre-orders alone. 

This site brings together experts and the people that need their questions answered on different topics. Qualified experts on the site are matched to individuals that have questions in their area of professional expertise. To answer questions on the site, you will have to register with LivePerson so that you are provided with necessary tools to enable you assist clients as well as colleagues on the site. Every time an expert gets hired by a client through the site, they are remunerated according to the agreed rate. Payments are usually made through PayPal, making it important to have an account set up before applying for a position on the site.
Get paid forum posting jobs can also help you to make money and boost your income. Create a user account on websites like EarningPalace.com, ForumBooster.net, Money-Forum.org and PaidForumPosting.com. The pay rate for each post that you make on various paying forums can vary. Many paying forums have strict guidelines that you must follow. To get paid for each post that you make, they will only accept high-quality content without spam.
While the “get paid to chat” jobs often serve students from Asia, Cambly seems to draw from an even wider geographical base. In addition to Asia, it has students from South America, Saudi Arabia, India, Turkey, South Korea and others. It seems like a good way to get paid to share your language and culture while learning a lot about other cultures too. 

Okay, this needs a bit of explaining. As an operator, you do need to be bubbly and conversational. But I don’t think you need to be like that in real life. I know I’m not! But when I do video chats, I consider it “work” so it’s a bit easier for me to fake it. So if you don’t think you have the personality for this type of job, don’t worry. You’ll do just fine.
Upwork is a popular platform for budding freelancers starting a side hustle. You can search for online chat jobs with part-time or full-time hours and place a bid. Speaking from personal experience, only apply for jobs from clients with a “Payment Verified” status. Most listings with unverified payments are scams and they will try to send you a virus-embedded document or (even worse) not pay you for the work you do.
You can sell your ebooks through Amazon's Kindle program or Apple's iTunes Connect, which gives you access to a large majority of the digital-book reading market and the barriers for entry are incredibly low. You don't need to invest lots of money to make this happen, but you do need to invest lots of time, not only in writing the ebooks, but in marketing them as well.
Some other parts of the book echo advice found in other bestsellers, with the section on how to create a lean startup being reminiscent of Eric Ries’ advice in Lean Startup – this by the way is one of the biggest lessons I think people new to the world of passive income need to realize…you can get started this week, with just $50, and still be on a level playing field with people who have a ton of money behind them (well, almost). 

Unlike in the real world where people can come into your real building, shake your hand and look you in the eye, people establishing a business online need to develop trust another way. This is usually referred to as “social proof.” Social proof is the condition of creating a psychological sense of importance or credibility for a brand based on the ideas and opinions of others.
Do you constantly come up with witty one-liners? Do you dream of the days of Mad Men-style advertising? If you’ve got some branding chops or just come up with imaginative copy, there are lots of opportunities to make money online through company naming and slogan contests. If you think you have a knack for names check out namingforce.com and squadhelp.com. If you dream of coming up with witty copy, try coming up with company slogans on Slogan Slingers and Get a Slogan.

Sorry about that, I thought I responded. If they were to manually type out the sentences in google, yes they would show up. As for the 100 dollar a day adsense guide, yes it works. My adsense site did alright for a while, but I have moved on to more affiliate based sites. In that article near the bottom is a good beginning SEO guide just to help you out. Also google “Moz SEO guide” and they have a great beginning guide as well. If you are interested in starting an Amazon affiliate site (which is a lot of what I do now), I am thinking about putting together a long guide from beginning to end on how to set one up. Let me know if this interests you!

I’d then spend the remainder of the day seducing men with empty promises. I’d use Facebook messages, IG DM’s and my site chat to gather as much money as possible. And would occasionally send more revealing pics, as if I just took a sexy selfie only for them. I’d probably use PayPal, and pray that they don’t ban me…I may even have to set up PayPals under my mom, sister’s and grandma’s name, to insure the transactions would clear.
And while it will take time to build up a big-enough audience to attract advertisers and other ways to make extra income from your podcast, the opportunity is there. John Lee Dumas interviews entrepreneurs seven days a week for his podcast Entrepreneur on Fire and now makes more than $200,000 a month from it. In fact, John publishes all his income online and showed that he’s made almost $13 million since launching in 2012.
Go to a chat or video-chat website that will pay you for each per-click action made from their members. Click the "Sign Up" button and complete the required information on the application form. Make certain you have a valid government-issued picture ID, such as your driver's license or passport. You'll also need a webcam or compatible video camera recorder when you're signing up with a video-chat service.

One may sign up on websites like Vedantu.com, MyPrivateTutor.com, BharatTutors.com, tutorindia.net as an online tutor by creating a profile, and listing the subjects or classes you want to teach, how much experience you have, what your qualifications are, etc. Some of the platforms may offer flexible and convenient time to work as an online tutor.
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.
Here’s a good example of how lead sales can work in real life: My second website, Life Insurance by Jeff, brings in a ton of traffic from people who are searching the web to find answers to life insurance questions. While I used to have the website set up so I could sell these people life insurance myself, it was a lot of work to process all the different requests and clients. As a result, I started selling the leads I gathered instead.
As someone who's been immersed in a number of online industries for quite some time, I know a thing or two about what it takes to succeed in this arena. However, just like you, I started at ground zero with little knowledge, but a great deal of passion. What I learned along the way were some invaluable lessons from failure that hurt at the time, but helped immensely in the grand scheme of things.

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.
Autoblogs are blogs with bots. In other words, they are set up using 100% automation software and designed to put out blog articles on a specific schedule that can be controlled by you ahead of time. While this may seem like an interesting way to put our fresh content, this is often done using tools such as WordPress’s Autoblog feature which pulls articles from other sources. This is dangerous for some reasons. First, people will be able to tell that it is not your content. Google may drop you in the rankings due to duplicate content. But worse, you could be accused of copyright infringement which is a federal crime that carries a penalty of $250,000 for one offense! If it is clear that you are not saying the posts are yours, you might get by with showing others’ content, but this practice could be perceived as claiming the content as your own. Do not risk this!

We’ve spent a lot of time talking about the unethical ways to make money online, in the hopes of discouraging anyone from using any of these tactics. Doing things legally and ethically is the only way to create and maintain a successful business. Sooner or later the Blackhat and illegal techniques will catch up with you, and you could lose everything.
In regard to sources of income, it is not necessarily coming from Blackhat activities, White hat work might fund hacktivism. Some are students supported by family, some have mundane side jobs. Some get paid for their technical skills in regular IT jobs, some speak at info-sec conferences, write articles and books, do consultancy or do work as paid media sources.
Hack for hire is possible, selling their 'hacking' skills as a service. However this will only work for a limited minority with the right connections as well as well as the right skills. Discovering and selling exploits and root kits is possible, selling pirate software, music and DVDs. There are grey activities such or bounty hunting exploits or Botnets for game gold farming, against T&C but not criminal law.
