Fox’s book is a little outdated now, but the alternative passive income streams he mentions includes straight up blogging (with the advertising and affiliate marketing as the natural monetization strategy), but also podcasting (don’t agree with this so much as a direct revenue stream) and vlogging (video blogging / web TV, whatever you want to call it).
Detailing every technical aspect of the publishing process might intimidate some readers into inaction. Instead let’s take an overview of the process and point out some good resources for information about publishing on Kindle that cover various aspects in more detail. But believe me, if I could figure it out in an afternoon or two, you can, too — after ten years of making a living online, I still don’t own a smartphone and I struggle to download programs.
One of the cool things about Google AdSense is that it's so easy to get set up. If you have a blog or website, you can sign up for a free Google AdSense Account. From there, Google will give you a unique code that you will paste onto your website. Google takes it from there, tracking your page views, traffic, and earnings on your behalf. There is no upkeep or maintenance to get this thing going, which makes it a no-brainer if you have a website already.
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.

Robert said he did an average of 4-6 of these gigs per year for a while depending on his schedule and the work involved. The best part is, he charged a flat rate that usually worked out to around $100 per hour. And remember, this was pay he was earning to advise people on the best ways to use social media tools like Facebook and Pinterest to grow their brands.

3. Another guy was having problems with his SO. He didn’t call me to flirt or have some side-action. He just wanted to talk to someone. I told him I wasn’t a qualified therapist (and besides, my FlirtBucks pay wasn’t enough to cover that sort of job), but he said talking to strangers was best for him. Friends knew about him and his background, so it was tough for them to give objective advice.  

The first follows the startup path we outlined above: You have a disruptive idea for an app or piece of software, you validate the idea with real customers, and then raise money to hire developers or a development studio to build, launch, and scale your software. If you’ve done everything right, your software will be accepted to the Apple and Google Stores and you’ll make money every time someone downloads it or pays for a premium feature.
It’s not the sort of online money making opportunity that’s covered in glory, but everyone needs a set of eyes to make sure the numbers add up at the end of the year. Every business and most individuals need someone to help prepare tax returns, especially time or resource-strapped small business owners. The Income Tax School provides an array of training programs that'll certify you with tax prep in as little as 10 weeks, and once tax season rolls around you'll be able to charge an average of $229 per return as a freelance tax preparer with this side business idea, reports CNBC.
MetroOpinion – Now, this is not the same category as 3 sites before, but it might be similar. We’re talking about completing online surveys for money. You still can type and spend time online, you share your opinions on stuff… So it is kinda similar. And one more common thing – it’s fun and really really easy. Register to the site and you will love it as soon as you try it out!
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+).

Another great example of this is Jeff Kavanaugh’s book, Consulting Essentials. Jeff is a partner at Infosys, a large consulting firm, and an Adjunct Professor at the University of Texas, Dallas. He wrote this book to help his students understand what consultants did and how to do it, and it’s had the unintended consequence of attracting hundreds of very qualified applicants to his firm.


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.


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.
Find your niche partners, collaborators, and champions: As you’re creating your course, look for notable people who are also creating content in the space. Look att how their businesses operate and incorporate that into your own plan. You can also reach out to any influencers and make them affiliates for your own course. This way, they’ll be incentivized to share your content with their own audiences (which can be a major way to generate your first sales—it helps if you're using one of the best CRMs for small business—and start building your own community!)
In addition to interacting with friends and strangers, social networking platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat can be used to make money. Companies and popular brands pay social media strategists to further boost the popularity of their products. With lots of competition around and the constantly shortening of attention time of online viewers, creativity is essential to create posts, videos etc that can go viral quickly and enhance the brand value. Remember, social media needs dedicated time and energy to stay relevant. Hence, you need to share posts regularly and interact with your followers on a regular basis.
Contrary to authors’ fantasies, books don’t sell themselves. It is true that ebooks are easier to get in front of potential buyers than print books, but I consider myself lucky to have made decent money and to still have Kindle income every month (even if it was only $104 last month). To really hit it big, you need to learn about marketing, which is beyond the scope of this article (and mostly beyond my skills, which explains the $104). Fortunately, there is a lot of good information about marketing Kindle books online.
Find an audience for your passion or hobby and you’re all set to make money online doing something you love via a niche website. That of course, is easier said than done. Creating a profitable niche website takes time and is not intended for the faint of heart. But, if you can hurdle the steep challenges and positively answer a few key questions on whether the website business idea you’re thinking about is profitable, then you can begin building it and eventually monetize through advertising, affiliates, or other relevant products.
Research other listings in your city on AirBnB and see what the going rate is for a place like yours. You could also just rent out a private room as well or even a bed in a shared room. In fact, that's how AirBnB got its start. However, you might find it hard in the beginning without reviews, but as long as you take really good care of your guests and provide a lot of value, the reviews will eventually come rolling in.
Whether you have a website or are still dreaming up ideas for a blog, you can also look into affiliate marketing. With affiliate marketing, you partner with brands and businesses within the content of your website. If you mention a product or service, you link to that produce or service using a unique affiliate code you received when you signed up for that particular affiliate program. From there, you’ll make money any time someone buys a product or service through your link. 

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.
If you have a propensity for writing and you can slay with your prose, consider writing an ebook. While the market has certainly become saturated as of late, books that help teach people about a technical topic still sell extremely well. This is a great source of passive income but does require a large amount of effort at the outset before any money is generated.
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.
Market your course: The beauty of using a course to make money online is that you can continue to sell it for as long as you’d like. Look for niche communities on Facebook, LinkedIn, or Reddit that might benefit from your content. Guest post on relevant blogs and sites. Look for anywhere you might be able to get in front of the right people. With just a few hours a month you can continue to generate sales.
In addition to interacting with friends and strangers, social networking platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat can be used to make money.

There are some guys who get off on being put in chastity (via a tricked-out plastic tube called “the CB-3000”) and combine that with financial domination. It needs to be wrapped up into a package that they relate to. This one guy, he had just turned 18, he had never paid anybody online before, and he wanted me to put him in chastity. He asked if I would hold the key -- actually both keys -- for his CB-3000. I charged an initial fee of $500 for that. I required him to post pictures of himself on a Tumblr account -- to prove that he didn’t get broken out of it. I sent him selfies that showed the key dangling around my neck. I think he paid me with his parents’ money and ate ramen noodles every day. But I don’t know for sure. It’s not my problem. I was supposed to hold the key for a month and ended up making a grand for doing that. After 45 days, I finally mailed one of the keys back. He was crying and whining for the key, but he was still sending me money. After getting the key, he emailed to say that he had the best release ever. Then I made him pay me a tax for coming. He sent another $100.

Writing quality content is the only way to create your brand and make money in a legal and ethical way. When you write useless eBooks that are full of keyword stuffing, broken links, or references, not only will you lose your ranking with Google over time, but you may also receive terrible reviews on Amazon or Audible for the low-quality content. Anything you write or put out to the masses should be the highest quality possible. The content you write in any form reflects on you and your brand and website. So make sure it is good content and not meaningless text.
One of the cool things about Google AdSense is that it's so easy to get set up. If you have a blog or website, you can sign up for a free Google AdSense Account.

There is no upkeep or maintenance to get this thing going, which makes it a no-brainer if you have a website already.

Before I talk about some of the methods for making money online, I wanted to address the role of pain versus pleasure. Every decision that we make in life is weighed on a pain-versus-pleasure scale. We will always do more to avoid pain than we will to gain pleasure, plain and simple. However, this is also what holds us back from succeeding in any endeavor.


You see, what the big publishing houses do with big offices of editors, writers, administrative staff… and then big printing presses… then distribution centers to get their books out to bookstores around the country… all to hopefully get books in the hands of customers… you can do on the computer you have right now. If that’s not massive disruption, I don’t know what is.
You probably already understand why keyword stuffing will drop your rankings. But it also helps to remember why it is so unethical. Keyword stuffing is the process of overusing specific words with the purpose of directing people to a certain website or sales page. There is nothing wrong with sending people to legitimate pages when keywords are used naturally. But keyword stuffing is an overabundant use of words that are low in quality and are only meant to influence where people go online. It is considered a “Black Hat” technique.

Domain name trading has been around for the last couple decades, and while most slam-dunk names have long been sold off, there’s still plenty of others that you can get your hands on for relatively cheap and broker as a way to make money online. Before you dive in, however, beware that some experts doubt the long-term viability of this idea for making money online. However, there’s always the change you might just land on a lucrative domain name for a future billion-dollar company. To get you started, here are some tips from GoDaddy, arguably the world’s largest and most famous repository of domain names.
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 recommend a multichannel approach — approach the marketing from several different angles. One definite channel is social media. Leverage your Facebook page, Twitter, LinkedIn contacts, and more to get the word out. When the book is published, post it on Facebook with a link back to your website with more information and a way to order, for example.
This is one of the easiest ways to sell your e-books online. You can set up an affiliate program for interested bloggers, writers or anyone that want to promote your e-books. Your affiliate partners will do all the marketing of your books online via their own blogs, sites, social networks, or other channels. You will pay them an agreed amount of money for each sale brought about by their marketing effort. Go through Click2Sale and provide each person with your affiliate link
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.

Counterfeit products are still rampant on the internet today and buying and selling counterfeit products can be very lucrative. It is also very illegal. Legitimate companies create goods that they want to sell and promote online. Then illegal companies or individuals in China and other locations create an imitation product to compete with this legitimate product. This creates a clear disadvantage for the original product owner, and they can sue for damages if you try this unscrupulous tactic. If you are an online seller, avoid this practice always. Always check out the authenticity of the product before selling or promoting it.

If you have experience with marketing, SEO, or a knack for getting people excited about the products and services you use on a regular basis, think about refining your skills and putting them to work making money online as a small business marketing consultant in your region—especially if you can become a local SEO expert and can help local clients rank higher in their search results.

1. There’s this guy who was super-religious (I won’t mention what religion, in case some of you here also practice that religion), and he positioned himself as a “chat warrior of faith.” He frequently visited various chat rooms to try and convert operators and make them leave their jobs. He was pretty notorious among my friends who were also chat operators.
For the most part, everything is online and I don’t need to meet any of these men. That’s the way I like it. But there was one guy, who’d randomly send me $1,000 a month, and I actually got together with him. He lived in London and got sent to New York for six weeks. We met and he fucking fell in love with me. I stayed with him in his apartment in Chelsea. He paid when we went out to do things. We slept in the same bed and I made out with him when I was drunk, but it was clear that we were not going to have sex. He didn’t give me cash in New York, but as soon as he got back to London, he completely wiped out my Amazon wish list, which had like $6,000 worth of stuff on it. He bought me everything.
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.
It can take time to build up your personal freelance business. Yet, there is more demand than ever for freelancers. So, if you want to kick start making money online through freelancing you can join one of the top freelance networks, such as UpWork, Fiverr, Guru, Freelancer.com, or PeoplePerHour. Sign up, build your profile, upload some samples of your work and start making extra money by doing small freelance jobs.
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.
If you want to clear some space out in your house and have a big stack of books you’ve been holding onto for too long, you can make money selling your books and textbooks online. Stores like Half Priced Books and others will give you cents on the dollar for each of your current books while you can check what your book is worth by simply entering the ISBN number on Book Scouter.
Use twitter bio effectively: If you have a website selling your service then its great (i seriously recommend you to create a website for you, every adult performer does this to make more money). If you don’t have a website then add the link to your profile on sexting website so that people can easily find you. Also in your bio mention the keywords like sexting, adult text etc for people to find you.
The big benefit to working through Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing, even though they charge you a commission on your sales, is their reach. Around 89 million Americans are said to be active ebook readers. That’s your potential audience, all those people visiting this site and browsing for a new book. It could be your book they find when doing a search on a related keyword. In fact, 38 percent of daily sales of ebooks on Amazon go to self-published titles.
I’ve thought about the psychology of financial domination, and what drives guys to just give away money. Some feel like they earn money and don’t deserve it. They see themselves as inadequate and believe that somebody better than them should be taking it. It turns them on to not be in control of their finances; I’ve had people ask me to blackmail them, but I don’t do it -- I’d rather not wind up going to jail and have no interest in digging up dirt or pulling off extortion scams. Whatever the case, though, the more they give up, the hotter they get. They masturbate as they send me money. It’s like other guys looking for porn online. A guy watches his money shipping out and his horniness escalates. He sends the 10th tribute of $100, realizes that he has never before given $1,000 in a single session, and it makes him crazy. He gets into that submissive space where he just can’t control himself. It’s like any guy who gets super horny and is feeling instead of thinking.
This is online chat service that allows you to chat with men through a phone call or text messaging. It also offers webcam chats for those who are comfortable with video chats. You basically become your own boss and earn as much as you want. The company pays its participants particularly in UK and Europe through direct deposits and bank transfers for those who live outside these countries.  You can earn up to $2 per minute every time you chat.
If you’ve got a way with words and expertise in a niche, there are plenty of sites that will pay for articles and content you write. Think of the sites you read regularly. What can you contribute to them that would be interesting? Research your niche and then look for ways to pitch articles. Many sites will simply have a submission or contact link in the footer. To get started, check out my full guide to becoming a freelance writer on the side and then submit your articles to places like Listverse, TopTenz, A List Apart, International Living, FundsforWriters, and Textbroker.
There are some key differences between this self-publishing (which, by the way, doesn’t have the negative connotations it used to) and traditional publishing process. You won’t be dealing with printed books, for one. That eliminates the expense and hassle of actually creating books, storing them, and delivering them — and that may not even sell. It’s going to be all digital. These are ebooks, which can be read on devices like Amazon’s Kindle, on another tablet or smartphone, or even on a computer.
Then once you’ve got your domain name and hosting sorted out, it’s time to pick a CMS, or Content Management System, that will let you update pages, build your blog and integrate with all the other services you need. It’s hard to go wrong with WordPress—the CMS powering close to a quarter of the internet. Keep in mind that eventually as you start growing traffic to your blog, you'll be wise to invest in a managed WordPress hosting plan, where all of the settings are custom-tailored and optimized to work particularly well with WordPress-powered websites.
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.
So many people dream of writing a book, but never go through with it. Yet no matter what, I’m sure you have experience and value you could give through writing a book. By packaging your skills and knowledge into a downloadable eBook that helps people learn a skill, advance their careers, or start a businesses, you can change someone’s life and even make good money online.
