For HTML-savvies here's what you need to do: First, convert all tables to div's. This is not a must but it'll improve the script a lot. To do this you will need HTML skills and CSS skills. If you have absolutely no clue what we're talking about, then you should read and understand the basics of HTML and CSS (for an introduction go to www.w3schools.com). Then, when you understand the basics you should at least be able to outsource the work to someone that knows how to convert the tables.
My friend Kyle Adams has created a great course focused on helping designers and illustrators choose more effective colors for their projects. This skill is something that is very haphazardly executed by most people, but after hearing time after time that he has great color choices, this got him thinking about how he might best be able to help other people with the same skill.
The fact that social media is big is old news, but the need for social media experts still remains!

In 2014, artist Ross Symons dedicated his entire year to origami, improving his craft and sharing it with the world on Instagram. He folded and posted a different origami figure every day, and in 18 months, he had increased his following from just 120 to over 100,000. With White on Rice’s strong brand and incredible content, Ross was able to quit his 9-to-5 job and use Instagram as a platform for his own business. Isn’t that amazing?

Hi Kylia, I came across your article (very I good information) as I was searching for "best dating site features". I launched my first dating site last year in January and am currently running a "first year anniversary" giveaway to celebrate. I am looking to add possibly a forum/message board or instant chat features to create more of a community experience to my site's members. Since you have quite a bit of experience, could you recommend a must have feature I should add to keep members engaged?
This isn’t to scare you off. I simply want you to know that this guide is going to focus solely on ways to make real, sustainable extra income online. Not just a few bucks. I want to share all the mistakes I've made that got me to where I am now so that you don’t have to go through them, and can build a successful online source of income for yourself.
Now, making money online should seem like a pleasurable activity. Why wouldn't we do just about anything to see things through, since it would be a major source of pleasure, right? Wrong. In the beginning, like anything else, we might get really excited about it. We might also set our hopes very high. But that all comes crashing down when we begin to fail.
There’s a ton of information out there for anyone looking to create a traditional scalable business. And there’s no shortage of incubators for tech startups in search of money and mentorship. But what about artists who are going solo and getting paid for their art? They’re entrepreneurs, too. How does one go from creating art to getting paid for it?

Some online dating sites opt to have users pay to use their site’s services, usually by charging them a monthly or annual membership fee that’s billed at regular intervals. The paid membership model promises sites revenue from every user who signs up, but may show slower user growth when compared to free dating sites. Most paid dating sites use the membership model to their advantage, promising potential customers a more select pool of potential matches who are “higher quality” or “more serious” about dating. It’s important to note that paid dating sites are not limited to revenue from account subscriptions as they can always choose to implement any of the monetization methods used by free-to-use sites.
For example, he is strategic with his time, and decided early on to make simple art that could be done in two hours or less. “It couldn’t be something like oil painting that needed set up time and weeks of time to complete one piece”, he says. “I wanted to feel a sense of accomplishment on a regular basis, even if I was only chipping away at it for 30 minutes a day.” And so he tailored his art accordingly – small accomplishments that could be produced quickly.

Like talking to people and helping walk them through problems? You can bring in extra income as a contract customer support superstar for companies all over the world. Due to the 24/7 nature of online businesses, companies are looking for people in different time zones to help deal with issues that their users are having. Better yet, if you have experience in service or retail you’ll be perfectly suited. Check out indeed or the other remote job boards I listed earlier to find opportunities.
I have been reading through some of the comments made about your article–and I have to say–dsr was hoping for a short cut. Preston, I believe that you may have written in another article”3-important keys to success”, that there are no short cuts. I remember there was a time that I had did just as you wrote about “diversification” and –Its funny–It does ring true. I have taught adult educations courses–Demonstrations for organizations–Entertainment venues–Murals–Portraits–and others–which provided me with stead income for me to return to school. I agree with your point Preston and qualify it in these terms: Artist must find a way to exercise their gifts by creating the opportunities to utilize them. Thanks for reminding me.

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.
Dating sites represent  an incredible moneymaking opportunity for affiliate marketers, but it can be a tough and difficult niche to promote.  On the other hand, if you take a different approach and create your own, personally-branded dating sites, you might be able to set yourself apart from everyone else in the business and earn a good living this way.

3 - You have a huge disadvantage by trying to take on the biggest sites in the world, (PlentyofFish, Match.com, OKCupid, Tinder, Badoo, Zoosk) and you are trying to take them on with an inferior script that has limited user participation on it, has limited features, and is bought from a developer who has sold the exact same script to a thousand other people who are all using it exactly like you. You need a custom script to have any real chance of ever making it a success, and you need to offer features that work, are useful and make people want to be a part of it, rather than just buy a script and hope people join your brand new site rather than swipe right on thousands of people in their area on Tinder. Far too many people get caught up on all the thousands of amazing functions such as 3D cities, VR dating, Playing games with potential dates, and none of that matters, its pointless expense and resource drain when reality is that people just want lots of people in their area to choose from, who reply back and talk about making a date.
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.
Sign up for a reputable affiliate network: Aside from Amazon, there are dozens of large reputable affiliate networks, such as Share-A-Sale, Clickbank, and Skimlinks, that specialize in connecting you with merchants who are looking for affiliates to sell their products. They charge relatively low commission fees for the privilege of connecting you with merchants, and the merchants on these sites tend to offer much higher commission percentages or set dollar amount payouts.

But larger players such as Tinder are much higher — in the ballpark of $4.14 million. While ET could not independently verify these numbers, TrulyMadly stood at about $60,000. The main source of revenue outside of subscriptions could still come from ads, a potential that is locked, say advertisers, though it needs a strategy. Imagine swiping through a few hundred people and having to see a profile of lingerie or men’s underwear during.

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.
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.
This may sound overwhelming at first, especially for beginners, but Binom has been designed such that even novices can use it. Tracker-related errors are minimized if not eliminated altogether.

Find a profitable niche: We’ve talked about this a lot. But, where are you most comfortable. What niche do your skills, values, and interests intersect? Do you have 10 years of experience as a technical writer? Do you have long-standing PR relationships that’ll be invaluable in helping startups launch a successful crowdfunding campaign? Determine what makes your value unique, and lean heavily on showcasing that strength to your potential clients.

Is there a way you can recommend a mentor? I understand a true investment is involved & I'm all for it. I have specific questions for my site. Is WordPress user friendly if I'm not if I'm not an experienced web designer? I'm a little fuzzy on that part. I'm for sure using Skadate. Is there an email address I may contact you?

Once you’ve gathered a list, put together a template outreach email (as you’ll be doing this over and over) that’s short and clear with expectations. Tell your potential interviewee who you are, what your podcast is about, and what you’re asking of them. Do a few test interviews with friends and family to make sure everything is being recorded at the quality you want and then book your first episode.
