Not true, there are many ways to make money online without a website, I have a list of 5 options for you that will get you on the path to making money online.”
Normally I advocate having a website and using that to drive your revenue online. That being said having a website is not an easy task as it takes work to constantly stay current with the latest trends as well as creating quality content on a regular basis. I love it and it works for me, but it may not work for you so having other options available to you really helps make the online commerce less scary
Let me walk you through a few options that may get your interest bit, and see if they make sense. There are many ways to make money online, but for now, let’s keep it to five that I share with you today,
The income potential online can vary depending on what you choose to do, let’s look at a few choices
You may have some skills that can be very useful to bloggers or website owners and you can potentially make a good living from freelancing. Using your skills like writing content, creating logos, advertising on social media, There are many ways to freelance for others online.
Have entire networks of individuals all offering up skills to anyone who is willing to let them help. There are many website owners looking for someone to help them out with daily tasks, You charge a fee for your service and make your money that way.
I have used the services on Fiverr before and I was happy with the results
The video world is massive and the options are plenty to promote or share information. If you have a desire to make videos then you could do well on YouTube. People are searching for answers to a vast array of situations that they need an answer for.
Set up your YouTube channel and set it for monetization then connect with Google adds and related affiliate programs and promote or mention or just display them in your video and you can make money
Animoto– Video creation, animation and other services available. 30-second videos free, there is a fee of about $8 a month for a paid version.
Jing– Good screen capture software and videos under 5 minutes are free
a bit of research on how to get your YouTube Chanel setup and monetize it, will bring this one home for you.
Ah yes, my favorite option and what I currently do today. Affiliate marketing allows you to receive percentage-based commissions for referring someone to a product or service that results in a sale. Most affiliate marketers have websites or blogs that really help bring home their message, but it is not necessary for you to have a website to make this option work for you.
You setup affiliate relationships and receive your affiliate link which you then can share by any legitimate promotional means at your disposal in order to share your information.
There are companies that allow you to promote only their products and there are also affiliate networks which have a wide variety of products and services you can promote.
- Clickbank– an affiliate network with many types of products to promote
- ShareASale– Another affiliate network that partners with many online retailers which allows you many options to choose from
- Commission junction– Another affiliate network with many retailers associated. Easy to use, great customer service
- Amazon– Just promoting Amazon products alone can be a full-time income source. They have some specific rules about sales required in order to remain an affiliate so read the terms of service before signing up
This list above should get you started. There are many more available. When you are on a site like Zappos or Walmart or pretty much any online retailer, look at the footer bar of the website and see if they have an affiliate program and you can start that way with an individual retailer.
You can also just do a search on google, add the product or company you are thinking of promoting and add “affiliate program” to the end of the search. You will find many great programs just waiting to be used.
Your Own Products
If you have products of your own you can do very well for yourself online. Especially with digital products like Tutorials and ebooks or guides.
Think about it. Create one ebook that really helps out a specific market publish it and sell it. You need no inventory nor overhead and it can pay you for years
many of the successful online business owners use this method to have another income stream coming in for them. It can certainly work for you as well, and it is easier than you may think to create your own products.
Sites that sell goods by auction are in high demand. eBay, for example, is probably the most well-known
You do not need a website to sell here. You can choose to have an online store using their tools and builders but you really only need the ability to have something people want and the ability to set up an add or auction for that and you are rolling.
This works well with self-created items like listed above, Ebooks, for example, are huge on eBay. Bang out a few of your own products which cover the market you are promoting to and go.
You can expand this anytime and grow your business and still not need a website, you can find a supplier for products and sell as a drop shipper.
Drop shipping is the process of making you the middleman between buyer and seller. They purchase directly from you on your auction add and you use that money to purchase the item at a reduced cost from a supplier and the supplier then ships the item to your customer with your brand on it. You keep the difference in the cost of purchase and cost of the item.
I did drop shipping for a while and it works well. You do, however, still have to put in the time to handle customer orders and answer questions, so it is not a launch and go type deal. You can do very well with this option, you just need to know it requires a bit more hands on.
Use your social media to help. This may not sound like a way to make money online by using social media but it really is. The online world has evolved into the quest for instant gratification and information. Learning to leverage the power of social media can be a massive success.
Here is an example- Using one of the affiliate networks in the section above you could simply promote on social media by sharing your link and valuable information with it and drive traffic to sites that end up providing you a commission.
So you may not have a huge following with your social accounts and that is OK, this can still work for you. There are apps available that help you grow your followers’ list and manage your promotions with huge increases in the number of followers for you.
