1. Affiliate Marketing

If you don’t have a product of our own to sell, but still want to make money online, affiliate marketing is the way to go. There are a number of affiliate marketing programs for you to choose from, all applicable to the specific niche you’re in. In fact, stay tuned for next week’s blog post where we’ll be talking about the 7 best affiliate programs for bloggers to make money.

The secret to succeed at affiliate marketing is to treat your affiliate promotions as if they were a promotion of your own product or service. When promoting your online course, for instance, you wouldn’t just post one blog post about it, and then expect your audience to purchase it.

Instead, you’d create multiple blog posts, video tutorials, social media posts, and email broducasts to get the word out as much as possible. Do the same for your affiliate marketing promotions, and you’ll be making money online in no time.

Time commitment: About 1-5 hours.

Equipment needed: membership into an affiliate program, and your own platforms (email, blog, and/or social media).

Setup cost: Around $10-12/month for a website creation platform, like Wix, Squarespace or WordPress.

2. Workbook or Printables

Workbooks, printables, and other items that can be easily downloadable are a great source for you to make money online. These types of digital downloads can range from a one page PDF, to PDFs with multiple pages, that your clients can print or fill out online.

The best part about creating workbooks, printables or other downloadable digital products is that they can be something that you’re already using in your own life, or selling in another way. For instance, I offer my complete Traffic Transformation online course for $197, but if you wish to purchase only the PDFs available in that course (without the video trainings), you can get them all for just $97.

You can design the PDF using a simple design tool like Canva or Visme (watch a video tutorial on how to design gorgeous lead magnets and PDFs in Canva), make that PDF fillable by using a tool like PDF Escape (watch a video tutorial on how to create a fillable PDF form for free), and lastly sell your PDF using a checkout cart software like Samcart or Teachable. Since I already use Teachable for my online courses, I use that to sell my PDFs and other digital products as well, to reduce my online business costs.

Time commitment: About 1-10 hours.

Equipment needed: A graphic design tool (like Canva or Visme), a PDF editor (like PDF Escape), and a checkout cart software (like Samcart or Teachable).

Setup cost: Around $99/month for Samcart or $39/month for Teachable.

3. Templates

Creating and selling a template is great way to make money online, because it can encompass a number of things. No matter if you’re a visually creative person, or a great writer, you can sell templates related to your expertise to make money online.

If you’re a visually creative person, you can create a design or graphic template (like a Pinterest graphic template, a slide deck template, or a stock photo template), and sell those for $5 a piece, up to $100 for a bundle. Those who aren’t design-savvy are always in search of visually-appealing templates that’ll help them stand out online, without much work on their part.
