Don't sacrifice morals for a quick buck — At the outset, you'll want to do all sorts of things to make money online, but don't sacrifice your morals for a quick buck. Not only will you put people off, but you'll lose Google's trust. You also shouldn't concern yourself with things like Adsense or other ads on a blog before you have around 100,000 visitors per day. Yes, per day. 
@Preston D Lee, I resell domain names and hosting accounts, mostly to my clients at the moment. I also have some things on Zazzle, and I have an eBook about SEO. The products on Zazzle don’t do much, but I don’t work at promoting them because I’m just too busy. The eBook is starting to do a little better, but the domain names and hosting do the best at this point. It’s just so hard to promote everything at once, and still promote my design services as well. Oh and school. Oh and the part time job I still have for the time being. Can we say burn the candle at both ends?
If you have a knack for organization, you can make money online as a virtual assistant helping people to keep their days in order. A virtual assistant will do everyinthing from bookkeeping to research, database entry, booking travel, and managing email. It can also be an awesome way to rub shoulders with some very important people, build up your professional network, and of course grow another stream of income. You can find great gigs on UpWork, Fiverr, Indeed, and Remote.co.
If my piece of content is so unique and valuable around hiking backpack recommendations, that other reputable outdoor websites are willing to link to it and build the page’s authority, then I’d have a very real opportunity to rank high in organic search for these search terms (meaning, my page will come up first when someone searches for hiking backpacks).
Open your own online boutique where you can vend your hand-drawn portraits, greeting cards, posters and other items featuring your pictures. Some crafter websites charge no fees to set up your shop on its site, but will take a percentage of your sales in return for letting you sell. You get to set your own prices and add photos of your pictures so shoppers can browse before buying.
Outsourcing the template design: If you have absolutely NO SKILLS in HTML and CSS, and if you don't want to spend some time learning it, you could outsource the creation of the template. However, we'd highly recommend you learn it though, as basic knowledge of HTML and CSS is fundamental to most opportunities to make money online. To outsource the template design, go to elance.com or rentacoder.com and find someone to do the job for you. For more information on outsourcing, see the section about Outsourcing your work.
He shares a number of great platforms to showcase your work. My initial concern was that maintaining and interacting on all those platforms can be very time consuming and actually burdensome. Vincent reassures that this is really not the case. It really only takes a few minutes a day allowing you to return to the more enjoyable tasks of creating artwork. I'm really looking forward to setting up and advertising an all the platforms he mentions.
Whether you write a blog about your art itself and your artistic journey, or an art-related blog like this one, and whether you are trying to increase your art sales, or sell your own or someone else’s ebooks or products, the number one thing to remember is to write great content that will provide value to your readers. If you think you can be a successful blogger by writing mediocre, low-value content, you haven’t read this.

An amazing book, that brings a breath of fresh air to the table. This book does not talk about the usual making money "quick fixes" such as how to look for the best platform, or where to invest blah blah... It does however help you find a new, fair way to talk with your inner self and make plans about your goals of making money with your drawing skills. This is a very helpful book for the novice who is just contemplating becoming involved in art business. It starts at the real beginnings. Your beginnings, to reflect on how you look at and value money. It also covers both the basics of drawing portraits, as a refresher, such as proportions, anatomy, rendering as well as more advanced tips and techniques. If you are considering a venture into the craft world, this book seems very helpful. It is a great guide to help you turn a profit with your own crafts.
There are two ways to make money with Udemy, and it depends on how teachers want to promote their class. If the instructor does the promotion by making coupons for classes, the students who use the coupon becomes the instructor’s students and the instructor gets 100 percent of the revenue, minus a 3 percent fee. For teachers that don’t want to spend the time promoting it themselves, Udemy will do the promoting and marketing and the instructor gets a 50 percent revenue share.
Just think about it: Imagine you owned a dating service with 1 million paying members. If you matched them all in pairs to form "perfect couples", then you'd probably go bankrupt. Why? Your members found what they came for, so there would be no reason to continue paying the membership fee. So instead of matching them, you would keep them searching for months.
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.
More and more companies and startups especially are embracing remote work—where you use online collaboration and communication tools to do your work from wherever you want. And you don’t have to be a 20-something hotshot designer or coder to reap the benefits of working remotely. Many remote positions are for customer support positions or other customer-facing positions that don’t require specialized skill sets.
But companies insist their monetisation approach isn’t quite a one-size-fits-all. The end goal here is to keep the customer engaged. Some companies such as TrulyMadly and The Inner Circle have tried out offline events with mediumto-little success. While they boost top lines, they don’t add much to the major revenue stream — in some cases under 20% of the year’s earnings.
Two billion dollars. That's how much online dating companies are expected to make in 2013 by helping lonely hearts find love on the Internet. The industry has been growing steadily for half a decade, so it's no wonder that older digital yentas like Match.com and eHarmony.com are seeing competition from app startups like the enthusiastic Let's Date, the gay and bisexual service Grindr, and the somewhat-forward Down (if you must ask the question "to do what?", maybe you're better off sticking with eHarmony). A number of these kinds of apps have earned the reputation of being meant for hook-ups rather than dating, whereas eHarmony and Match.com emphasize just the opposite: Both sites often crow about the number of marriages that started on their sites.
So, where are we supposed to turn to make money the legitimate way online? This isn't just about generating passive income; this is also about finding ways and means to create an active income through the conveniences afforded to us by the internet that will not only help us with our debt obligations, but also empower us to save, invest and get really rich in the future.
As a customer, I find that the dating sites with glossy stock photos of beautiful women and men look a bit suspicious. I even saw someone release a live site with the demo member photos still in place! It's a bit of a Catch-22... You have to have members to have a good site, but you have to have a good site to get members! With a glut of dating sites, I think coding something original is the way to go. It's a great way to learn programming!
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!) 

Fiverr is one of the biggest providers in the gig economy on the web and you can sell a wide variety of services and products through this medium. Do the research and find out what you can offer. However, keep in mind that like any other money-making task, it takes time to succeed here. And stellar reviews will help you generate more and more income over time.

Very nice tips, I had no idea about this! A few months ago, I started learning to design t shirts by following this guide: http://www.coreldraw.com/en/pages/sell-t-shirts/ and it started mainly as a hobby, but thru time I got pretty good, and now I am thinking about making a business out of it but I didn’t know where to start, and now I do. Thank you for putting me in the right direction :) Wish me luck!

Partnering with Tee Spring is like crowdfunding with T-Shirts! It's 100% free to design your shirt. Simply use the online designer to create your product by either uploading your design or using clip art from the site. You'll have to set a sales goal or tipping point, which is the minimum you need to sell in order to have your shirts printed. Then share your campaign via email, your website, or your favorite social media networks. Your customers won't be charged unless your campaign reaches the tipping point. Once your campaign ends, shirts are printed and sent out, and you'll be sent a check for the profit.


One of the many truths in the matter is… NOT putting all of your energy, skills, ideas in one basket and expecting it to sustain you. Times have changed and I think that there could be a great opportunity here to further this discussion on ideas + action = results kind of [sustain yourself as an artist/graphic designer/illustrator…..] conversation.
Inkd is an online marketplace for print designs that include pamphlets, logos, cards, menus etc. Launched in 2009, the company now has round about 2000 original design templates. How this online marketplace works is; the designers after signing up build store fronts to show case their designs and templates for sale. A few simple steps that designers need to follow are to first choose the type of product you want to build e.g brochure; download a template from the website to ensure proper standards and after designing, upload the file. Once you upload the design; reviewers will review it for quality check and approve the work, which will then be uploaded on the website for sale.
If you do not own a site that provides dating services, you can still earn money by becoming a partner of existing monsters of online dating, for example, Meetic.fr, Mamba.ru, MeetMe.com. The visitor of your site will get access to a real dating site. Outwardly, everything looks as if you are the owner of a popular dating service with millions of visitors, but in fact, the visitor gets only access to the database of a large online dating site. You will get your money as a percentage of user costs for various services or just their registration. Some users spend thousands on communication. Large players of this market promise you up to $ 5.000 monthly if you own a site, which is visited by 10. 000 users daily. This amount doesn’t include the income from the sale of advertising. However, it’s up to you to find these users.
Thanks for the article. I tried my first T-shirt project using Teespring. I use their design tools to put quotes on a shirt and I think the final product on the screen looks cheap and amateurish because there’s not many options when using their design tools. I probably wouldn’t buy if I saw a Teespring ad for quotes on a shirt. But your article gave me other resources which I may pursue.
Leading the pack is Match.com, owned by IAC/InterActiveCorp, the Internet holding company controlled by billionaire Barry Diller. Analysts say Match.com is best positioned to capitalize on the surge, so much so that Topeka has increased the value of the company's stock to $98 from $78 and recommends investors purchase shares of IAC in anticipation of a Match.com spinoff.

However, like anything else truly worthwhile, apps require a significant investment of your time or money upfront. If you don't have the skills, then you have to hire someone who can assist you in creating a great app. But first you need to come up with an idea that will sell. Do the proper market research and analytics to come up with the right app.

This is the oldest website monetization trick in the book and plenty of dating sites still choose affiliate networks as part of their overall strategy. In most cases, the CPA (cost per action) model is preferred by both dating sites and affiliates, but sometimes CPC (cost per click) can work as well. Increase your odds of success with affiliates by displaying deals from businesses relevant to the dating industry such as florists, jewelers or candy stores. If your dating site is niche, consider working with affiliates that cater to that niche.
Create a killer course experience: With your course validated and in the works, you need to figure out how people will take it. Most course creators choose to host their courses from their own websites. This way, they get all the value of bringing customers back to their site on a regular basis. I host my own courses from a subdomain on my own site so I can easily add more. The course experience is incredibly important as well. And after trying most of the solutions, I highly recommend Teachable—an online platform designed specifically for courses.
Where’s the business opportunity? Go check local stores: what you’ll find are boring, black or clear iPhone cases… Customers would love nice cases but retailers don’t know where to find them. Why? Because wholesalers carry the same low-cost, standardized cases that are massively produced in China. Why not choose Chinese companies: First, production is slow and they will ask for a minimum of 500-1000 cases per design; Second, you can’t find a trustworthy supplier as most will sell your designs; Third, none will accept returns. You can contact us at [email protected]. Remember that the investment is low, the profits are high and they can become huge.
If you want to help shape products in their early stages, joining an online focus group or answering survey questions is a great way to make extra money online. They don’t pay as much as some of the other options we’ve highlighted, but you can join groups on sites like Survey Junkie, Swagbucks, and IPSOS that pay out through Amazon gift cards, check, or PayPal. You’ll be asked to provide a bit of information about your demographics (age, location, etc…), but after that you can get going making money through surveys.
One of the big focuses for me this year is more video content. I love making videos (sadly my camera broke and I’ve been scrambling for a replacement since). But making and sharing Youtube videos can be a good way to not only teach what you know, but if your audience is large enough, you might be able to use it as a marketing channel for your own creative ventures, or even to generate sponsors or ads to help out.
PinkyTee.com is a new website that is launching in Nov 2016 and is accepting artist submissions. They are a daily t-shirt company that will print your shirt for 24 hours and pay you $1.00 for every t-shirt sold. The artist retains all rights to the design and they pay you via PayPal 2 weeks after the sale is over. Its a good way to make some extra money.
Currently, my site is not charging members. I am a software developer and designed, programmed my website from scratch. This enabled me to save money be coding the site myself. Right now I am focusing on getting members to join my site. My site is giving-away a free iPad mini this month, registration end is February 17, 2014 at 11:59:59 p.m. Eastern time. Research showed that it's better to end a giveaway on a Monday night.

My situation is a little different… I’ve been there and done that. Had to pull over and actually take a hiatus because my site was too popular (without the education). Now I’m just building a database of content for the years ahead after getting some professional training. AdSense is starting to come around again using different methods without a web server. Still, there is a lot of problems yet with the way advertising money is being distributed. IMHO, TV ads should be worthless compared to YouTube ads which have REAL numbers. View counts are the most important factor when broadcasting your content.
Whether it’s an important consumer application, a specialist app to solve a particular niche problem, or even a time-wasting game you can play on your phone, you can create a massively successful business if you build software that helps people. (Look at the rise of Slack—the team communication software that went from side project to billion-dollar company in just 2 years.)
If it’s not clear yet, information and expertise are two of the most consistent and lucrative ways to make extra money online. If you don’t like talking on the phone, you can sign up to get paid to answer professional questions on JustAnswer. There are thousands of questions being asked every month from people looking for help from lawyers, doctors, mechanics, vets, and more. To apply, you’ll need to supply your professional verification, resume, and a form of identification.
Let's continue from the market segment from the example above: Straight people ages 18 to 30 living in Copenhagen. This segment is still pretty large. There's 1,145,000 people living in Copenhagen, and that's just in the urban area. Probably more than 100,000 of these people are in the ages 18 to 30, which is your market segment. It would cost a lot of money to market your dating site in such a way that these people would actually spend their money on your dating site.

The author definitely knows his online marketing in this field, and I don't see how you couldn't increase your income if you used all the methods outlined in this book. Doing so will definitely get your name out there, get yourself noticed, bring in repeat customers and more. I enjoyed the social media strategies listed and started implementing them right away, effectively increasing my Twitter and Pinterest following. Enjoyed the original content.
