How to Make Money Online

How to make money online.

When I read about making money on most sites it always seems to be a little cheesy or some type of link hacking system that is to good to be true.

There are, however, some great individuals who do it right.  In the video below I’ll mention who some of them are and give you my top 10 ways to make money online in an authentic, inspiring, educating and entertaining way.

A way that leaves you full not by the amount of money in your bank account (because it can be A LOT if you do it right) but by the emails you receive by customers on how you changed their life, or when you meet an online client in person with tears rolling down their face expressing how their dreams have been achieved because of YOU!

It’s a powerful feeling, and I want you to experience that.

But it takes knowing how to do it the right way that both serves your vision and supports others.

Here are my top 10 ways to make money online with integrity:

 (10 Ways to Make Money Online on YouTube)

1.  Teaching and Training

This is my number one way, and I been doing this for the last 5 years. This is something that almost every major University has been doing (taking their classes online) due to the huge success they saw from University of Phoenix which set the tone for online education.  It’s easier now more than ever for companies and entrepreneurs to launch online schools, and my good friend Marie Forleo is a prime example with her mega success, B-School.

2. Offering a Service

Providing a service may be the easiest way to start is you don’t need any investment to get this going.  My podcast editor Ian Robinson is helping podcast creators edit their shows to increase production value.  There are many different ways to provide a service and it’s just about realizing where your talent lies and what solution you can provide for others.

3. Creating and Selling Products

If you have an expertise in ANYTHING then you can package it into a book, course, software, audio program, DVD, and so on. The best way to get the word out and sell these products is with webinars.

4. Membership Sites and Continuity Programs

Another champion that I have a lot of respect for in this arena is Ramit Sethi. He has an amazing continuity program (Ramit’s Brain Trust) and each month provides useful and specific information for his passionate community.  The community thrives off of his wise direction and pay him monthly to continue getting access to the community and resources.  The beauty of this model is you sell something once and get paid each month for it.

5. Affiliate Marketing

Nick Reese has done an incredible job of building websites, developing outstanding searchable content and selling other peoples products on his sites.  He gets a commission on every sale or lead he sends to the company.  So he never had to create his own product in order to build his business (he has since branched out into other areas that you can check out on his new site). Pat Flynn also does an amazing job at this and he actually shows how much he generates on a monthly basis from his affiliates here.

6. Building a Site and Selling Ads

Derek Halpern is a BEAST at this.  The legend behind SocialTriggers started a celebrity gossip site years ago and had millions of visitors every month that he leveraged to sell advertising on the site. Another example is Tina Su of ThinkSimpleNow.com who does an amazing job with this while sharing inspiring personal development content.

7. Selling Sponsorships for Branded Content

John Lee Dumas, generates over $50K monthly selling sponsorships on his podcast and writes about how he does this here. This can be done via podcast, developing a niched website or even a video show. Create branded content around your passion and find sponsors that will be attracted to your audience.

8. Events

Creating and promoting events, either online or offline can be very profitable as well.   Michael Stelzner does both online summits and in person events with thousands of attendees, all while starting out from a simple blog a few years ago.

9. Masterminds and Coaching

An inspiring change maker part of the Integrity Podcast Network is Jonathan Fields.   He runs the Good Life Project and has ongoing coaching and retreats in exotic locations all year long that sells for a high ticket price. This can be done either online or offline, as Jonathan has mastered the art of doing both.

10. Getting Creative

Jason Sadler (now known as Jason SurfrApp) is one creative entrepreneur.  He used his online platform to make money wearing companies shirts with Iwearyourshirt.com.  Now he sells his last name for nearly $50,000 a year, sells sponsors pages in his new book, and continues to push the envelop with what you can earn by being creative.

I have done stand up comedy, improv comedy, and created my own cartoon character (self-publishing my first cartoon book). I'd love to find a way to teach and train people how to use humor for 1) Professional uses (especially speaking and writing) and 2) helping people use the power of humor to make life fun, happy, and exciting. 


I'm looking into writing ebooks, producing videos, and getting a website to put it all together.


Sounds to me like I've come to the right place!

That vid was very interesting! I am trying to start a Conveyancing business from home, which is done after hours as I work full time in another job. I have also just started a Mortgage Broking Certificate so I will have another avenue also to compliment the Conveyancing. My dream is to run my own business from my home office and have the freedom to go watch my kids when they need me at school etc. I have just created a Facebook page, but as I am in regional Victoria in Australia, it is going to take a long time to get my business going, which means I will be working 2 jobs for a while. What can you suggest to boost my work intake?

Thanks, Lauren

Awesome!!! It shows that there are several ways to earn money on internet. It does not require any special training or skills only your will to do things religiously. People may get distracted while going thru all 101 ways but they have to realize that which particular area they feel comfortable. Once you do that then just focus it and start doing the things… Believe me you will get success very soon.

Great read. We all know the hit and run model does not work but who have the patience of waiting until your business thrives. But I think it is the best way. Thanks.

Something I'm working on doing is market transplanting. Essentially finding a simple product (not copyrighted of course) that is being marketed in an effective manner, and simply rebranding it. For example, taking a product that is selling well on Ebay, contacting the manufacturer, and then selling it yourself on Amazon. Start off by buying just a few and seeing if they sell in order to see if it is a viable market!

Awesome and great list..  If you want to attract women fast, the answer isn't pickup lines — the answer is to develop your “Inner Game” and become a guy who naturally attracts women. http://guidetoattractowomen.com

Lewis,


Awesome content as always!


Step #1 is crucial and I love education. 5 years ago when you were first starting out, would you take the risk and invest in your education (i.e. Marie's Bschool) even if you couldn't afford it?


Thanks, would love to hear your thoughts!

Combining some of the methods together and putting value and customer care on top of them should serve as a great mix for success.

I agree with @artbeast: as a visual artist who sells paintings and prints online, I'd be curious to hear your take on selling physical products and how to take that to the next level...

Lewis, what I find really valuable in this video is your message; your reoccurring theme, which to me is: Push the boundaries of convention. 

Thanks again.

I agree that there are many ways to make money online and you can combine these methods.  For example, our company OSI Affiliate Software has created a hosted in-house affiliate software that is used for companies to create an affiliate program and we also are partnered with companies and we earn money from being an affiliate user.  I think it is important to have different revenue coming in to help your cash-flow and help you survive as a business.

Hey Lewis...  You have great stuff and some great original content and thinking.  But I was really disappointed that you limited your 3rd online way of selling products to information products.  Whatever happened to the "real" and tangible product... one that you can hold in your hand.  Selling information products tend to promote the lifestyle mentality that you can make money and do almost nothing for it.  You can automate your income and live in Bora Bora the rest of your life sipping umbrella cocktails while the cash appears in your bank account.


I sell  a real product, leather bags and leather journals... Italian Leather, European papers, American Craftsmanship... made by real people in Santa Fe.  I would love to hear your thoughts some day on real, physically tangible products.  Maybe we could replace that journal you have on your side table for one of ours.  www.renaissance-art.com

I love article and it's a great reminder for those of us that have gone down one of the above avenues and want to diversify.  I just read an article over at Entrepreneur On Fire and they said...


"Multiple income streams are critical, as the entrepreneurial landscape is very unpredictable."


So true.

@_AlexSantiago  thanks Alex.  Yes.  I invested in my education 5 years ago and joined groups and programs when I was broke and in debt from 3 credit cards.  When I made the investment financially is when I took even more action and focused as if my life depended on it (cus it kinda did).  Money didn't come in right away, but it's what got things started for it to come in faster.  Hope that helps.
