Ways to make money

ways to make money

Today, I’ll talking about ways to make money online, but at the same time, I’ll be promoting a marketing software.

The software I’m promoting is Pop Up Domination, and the reason, is that if you’re fast, you can buy it with a 65% discount.

But first, I’d like to talk about some money making ideas, and I must admit that lately, one of the questions I have been thinking about is, how to make money online.

I have been marketing online for a while, and I have been blogging even longer, but there’s one thing I don’t seem to understand. And, that’s all the different ways to make money online. Well, I probably shouldn’t say that I don’t understand how to earn money, because I do, I just don’t make enough money to get by, from just my online activities.

There are several reasons why I am not earning enough money online, and the most important reason is that I keep focusing on fun ways to make money. I wrote about that in my post about my 1 year business anniversary. I keep focusing on having fun, instead of focusing on ways to make money.

Ways to make money

I have been looking into many different ways to make money online, and some of the methods I have been looking at are:

I just can’t seem to figure out what to do, so I keep trying different ways to make money, instead of focusing on one method.

Affiliate marketing

Today, I am promoting Pop Up Domination 3.0 with a 65% discount, and by selling this, I’ll be earning a commission on each sale. This is an example of affiliate marketing. And to me, it’s been one of the easiest methods to earn money online. But, at the same time, it’s fairly hard to earn an income this way. I have been using Pop Up Domination for a long time, it works great, and it has some really beautiful templates. I am not using pop ups all the time, but I still use them in order to get more subscribers to my newsletter.

Selling advertisements

I have sold advertisements on my blog via various services, and I have sold them directly to people who have contacted me. This works as well, but like with affiliate marketing, I haven’t had much success with earning enough money each month to make it worth the time and effort.

One way to sell ads on your blog is by using OiO Publisher, or a service like Buy and Sell Ads. At the moment, I am not selling any ads on my blog.

Selling my own products and services

This is probably the method I have been thinking about for the longest time. I have probably thought about it for five years or more, and I am still thinking about it. Selling my own products and services online is probably how I can be making the most money, and it’s probably the most fun as well. The only problem is that it takes a long time to develop a product, and I am not sure what the product should be. I know that it should be related to marketing, and the first thing that comes to mind is either a online marketing course, or an ebook. But, the competition is high.

Promoting a multi-level marketing company

I know that many consider multi-level marketing (mlm) as a kind of shady business. But, I know that there are many huge companies, with some awesome products out there, and that by joining a company you can trust, you can also earn a lot of money online. And, what is appealing to me about a multi-level marketing company is the fact that you become part of a team, with a person above you (a mentor), and people below you, that you can help earn an income. It sounds interesting to me, even though I haven’t really tried it.

Your turn – ways to make money online

I’d love to hear your thoughts on the various ways to make money online. How are you making money, and are you focusing on ways to make money quick or any unusual ways to make money?

    I think selling an ebook is a great way to make money online, it’s probably not one of the easiest methods though!

    • That’s exactly what I’ve been thinking. I have written a few ebooks, but I’m giving them away for free to the people who are subscribed to my newsletter.

      • Jens – tell me about it, i wrote my first ebook and of course I have to give it free to my subscribers. So, where is the money ? Do you think your ebook will really be bought by someone browsing around in amazon or barnes & noble? How will they even get to your book? The effort you spend on writing a book is just too much to just get a few subscribers i feel. But, hey, I think we should never lose hope and keep doing what we do best 🙂

    Hi Jens,
    I think affiliate marketing is #1 option to make money online. Ads on blog may not be continue. And with Google Adsense banning it`s publisher`s account I see Affiliate as best way to make money.
    Anyway there are much more ways, like providing services or product as yo mentioned.

    Hey Jens,

    Ah, that age old question of how do you make money online. I know you’ve been blogging for awhile now but you’ve said it yourself, you’ve been doing it more for fun then for business.

    So the formula for making money online is to promote a product that you know is what your target audience wants and preferably your own. Now my first one was a PLR product but it was a really really good product. My opt-in offer was a free report, my upsale was a low end product that had like 50 videos on it and my higher price was the resale rights to the product. I made sales every single week.

    Once you have a list of at least 100 people then what is recommended is to join some giveways to really explode your list. At that point you need to create your own product and by that time you will know what your audience wants so if you aren’t sure, ask them. If they love visiting your blog then ask them what they would like to see from you.

    Having your own product is the best way to go but in the meantime, promote affiliate products you stand behind and your audience will continue to trust you.

    There you have it Jens, the formula for making money online and lots of it.

    Hey Jens

    At the moment, I’m using banner ads and smaller square ads on my blog to make money but it doesn’t make me a huge amount.

    I’m currently writing an eBook as a giveaway and from there, I plan to have an upsell but I’m fairly new to doing that so it may take some experimenting.

    I’m also going to try to build my email list more using the giveaway and hopefully market some stuff that way.

  7. All the way given here are looks great but I personally feel that advertising and marketing are the most efficient ways to make money, thanks for the great post.
