Do you want to make money online? Attendant Design  Too many websites offering products related to making money from home are overpromising and under-delivering. Here are some techniques and methods to honestly make money online now.

1. Affiliate Programs

Affiliate programs offer a way to make money online by promoting products for people or companies. You do not need to have your effect, and when you enable the company and sales are made, you earn a commission on the sale (either a percentage of the profits or a flat dollar amount). You can promote the product by writing about it on your blog, Squidoo, or Social Networking Websites. If you want to find some affiliate programs to join, you can look through Clickbank, CJ, and ShareASale to start.


2. Build It & Sell It – Or Buy It & Build It

If you build up a niche website with high-quality content related to the topic of your site – you can either keep the site as it is or sell it for a profit. I’ve made numerous niche websites over the years, and many are receiving targeted traffic but not making much money. They may have Google AdSense ads on them but are still not making the type of money I would like them to. If I don’t want to work on marketing that website.

I could sell it to someone with a product related to my site’s topic. Recently, I sold a website I had built for three years (it was not profitable at all, and I didn’t have time to deal with marketing it), and I got a quick $3000 for it on Flippa. Some people call this “Blog Flipping” or “Site Flipping.” It works to make a short chunk of money but is not sustainable unless you are driven to create numerous blogs, build them up, and resell them. Alternatively, you could buy a website on Flippa, build it up, and profit from it.

3. Membership Websites

Residual income is the way to make money online. People sell books and products online all the time – but to make a real sustainable, lasting income by having your membership website or promoting (as an affiliate) a membership website you believe in. The key here is to promote a membership website or program you have tried or are currently a member of – and vouch for it 100%. With so many scams online these days, it can be tough to find such a membership program. As of now, I can honestly tell you that I do believe in a few programs out there. Blog Masters Club is one – by David Grimsley.

It is currently not open to the public (just filled all slots), but if you direct people to sign up on that page and later make a sale, you will earn a residual commission on their membership. You can still join and promote David’s other free products – and his affiliate signup page is here. Yaro Starak is also an honest marketer with a great membership site called the Membership Site Mastermind, and strangely enough, it is currently not taking on any more students. I think it is a good thing that they are not taking on every new person.

Wants to sign – up because they provide individual training and help through their membership sites. Like the other programs, if you direct traffic and sign up to be notified when the program is available, you will still receive your commissions. Yaro also has other free reports to promote as an affiliate and sign up here. Lastly, a membership site that I am a part of is Easily Answered – a program that allows members to join and ask questions directly to experts in related online marketing fields.

4. Product Creation & Sales

If you have your product, you will make more money by selling it online. If it is a digital product or one that can be downloaded (i.e., software or e-book), you will profit even more. Product creation is not for everyone. But if you are an expert in a particular field and want to share your knowledge on the subject, creating a product and selling it online is a fantastic way to profit. You can sell your product and use Paypal, Clickbank, or CJ (to name a few) to process payments securely. If you want to profit even more, you can then.

Take that digital e-book and sell it as a paperback through Lulu’s Self-Publishing program. Once you go through the Lulu process and your book begins to sell, it will be picked up and sold by other major book chains, such as Barnes and Noble,, and more international bookstores online. Alternatively, if you want to make more money and have a great idea, you can create a software program and sell it repeatedly for constant profits. All you need is one good idea.

One thing that might save a user time is providing some entertainment or solving a problem. You can pay a programmer on Scriptlance a minimal amount for them to create the software (make sure you own full rights to it), and then you can sell it or provide it for free online. Examples of software program types include iPhone applications, WordPress plugins, or any other general software used on one’s computer.

5. Banner Ads

If you have a website receiving a decent amount of traffic, you could make money from banner advertising. This is a technique that has the potential to make a person a lot of money, but only if their website is receiving heavy traffic. For banner advertising, you can use Google AdSense ads.

Text Link Ads or You join one of the sites and put a small piece of code onto your website. People can purchase ads on your website, and you can charge a set amount per month for certain ads to be placed in specific places on your website.
