Hey guys, it's Gabriel here from Internet Marketing Insider, and it's been a while. I've been busy with running my digital marketing agency and doing a ton of other online businesses in the meantime.
But I think right now is a really important time for me to get back on here, to help you make more money online. Especially during these times, where who knows - your job might be at risk or you might've already lost your job. You're probably having challenges getting more clients or even making money in your current business.
Whatever the challenge that you're facing, right now is the biggest opportunity to start transforming your life around and start making more income streams online. There's never been more opportunities today than right now. So it's perfect that you're here because I'm really excited to share with you these eight ways on how to make money online in 2021.
I've also included links in the youtube video description to future videos that will go into more depth into each way, as well as some resources and links that will help you along your journey.
So let's get into it. And before we begin, make sure you subscribe, make sure you like this video and leave your comments and thoughts below. I read each one of them and I interact and I want to build a community here where we all help each other. Okay. So let's get started.
1. Self Publishing
Self publishing is basically writing an ebook or a book that you're going to publish on Amazon Kindle or other platforms. Now, it's not that hard to actually write a ebook. It doesn't have to be that long. It can be anywhere between 8K and 10K words for a mini book, or you can go up to 20K or 25,000 words if you're ambitious, but literally you could write a book in just 14 days.
If you set your mind to it, you can basically write 500 to a 1,000 words a day on a topic that you're passionate about. And within 14 days you will have at least 10,000 words and you can publish it.
So how do you get started? The most important thing is the structure. Structuring your knowledge into a logical flow, where you're talking about the main topic or solving the problem that you're promising in the book, whatever that may be. Or maybe it's just a simply simply a story about your life or talking about experiences.
But the main thing is writing every single day until you complete it. Even if it's a hundred words a day, even if it's 300 words a day, 500 words a day, however long it takes, you can do it. You just got to put your mind to it. And then once you've finished it, I would highly recommend getting it edited and proof-read, and also have someone look it over to see if there're any other points or angles that you can put in there to make it more valuable.
If you don't want to write anything, you can actually hire a ghostwriter to write the book for you. So you can actually self publish without even writing a single word. Self publishing is a fantastic way to make money online, especially when people are at home, they have their Kindle reader or they're online looking for content to read.
E-commerce is a fantastic way to make money online, because you can basically sell your own products. You can sell other people's products through drop shipping and make the margin. You can sell products through Shopify, through woocommerce through so many different channels, even Amazon FBA (fulfilment by Amazon) is a really great way.
Sourcing products from China and then re-branding them into your own brand and then selling them on Amazon. I'm just scratching the surface by mentioning this briefly.
3. Affiliate Marketing
Next one is affiliate marketing. This is one of my favourites because it's a super simple business model. When someone clicks on your link, it goes to the product and they buy it. You get a percentage of that sale. It happens automatically while you sleep 24/7, as long as you have people clicking and buying through your link, you're going to get commissions.
So that affiliate link can literally be anywhere. Like you can send it on WhatsApp to your friends or family. You can have it on your blog. On other people's websites, if you have a banner ads you can even have it on YouTube videos or your Instagram or your Facebook or your social media profiles.
There's so many ways you can promote your affiliate products out there. It's mind-blowing. Now there's a little sub-category of affiliates and that's CPA offers or cost per action offers.
A lot of marketers love these because the CPA offers you get paid per action. So if someone downloads an app or enters their email or even a clicks on something, you get paid on that. So it's much easier. You get paid smaller amounts, but you get more conversions because it's less commitment on the user's part.
4. Digital Freelancing
Next one is digital freelancing. Freelancing online through platforms like Upwork, freelancer.com guru.com, all of these different platforms that you can basically sell your skills online through becoming a virtual assistant, for example.
You can become a freelance writer, graphic designer, programmer or offer many other skills - and chances are - you already have those skills and you simply just need to put yourself out there, market your skills to the world and to possible clients and customers.
And then we have cryptocurrency. Now, whether or not you like it or dislike it, the fact is, it's creating a buzz in the market. A lot of people are talking about it and you don't necessarily have to get involved directly with trading or investing into it. In fact, I would highly advise not to, unless you're very knowledgeable about it. Instead, you can get involved in the affiliate marketing side of things such as marketing crypto products, or crypto services.
6. YouTube Marketing
Next is YouTube marketing. This is a huge way to make money online, having your own YouTube channel. And even though YouTube pays you quite little in terms of the views you get, there're so many other ways to make money on YouTube, especially through affiliates, CPA products and e-commerce products.
I actually wrote a book a few years back called "How To Make $100,000 Thanks To YouTube", and it goes through some of these methods and how other top YouTubers have actually converted their channel into cash and multiple passive income streams.
In fact, full disclosure: many of the links on this channel Internet Marketing Insider are affiliate links. So you are actually supporting me to create content for you. Affiliate marketing on YouTube it's quite easy to get started, but I highly recommend reading this book because it's really comprehensive. I literally go through everything needed to get started. It's inspiring because I remember interviewing Troy Adashun many years ago when he had about 30,000 subscribers.
I watched his journey to go from there to the incredible amount of over 300,000 subscribers and building a huge business online - a supplement business. It's just inspiring what YouTube can actually help you do, just putting (valuable) content out there.
Podcasts are a fantastic way to make money online because more and more people are listening to podcasts online, and it's easier to get reach because it's a less saturated market. You can talk about the niches that you really passionate about, and then mention affiliate products, or your website to start getting traffic there. You can even offer your coaching or your services through podcasts.
8. Video Courses
Video courses are incredible because you can, again, just like in the book - take your knowledge and put it into video format. People are a lot more likely to pay more for a video course than they are an e-book. You have to value the knowledge that's within that video course. And that's what sets the pricing and the value of the course. It's the value of the information in there and what it can do for the person.
How do you convey the benefits through language, so that the viewer (or the reader) can visualise in their mind, wow, this is how it's going to help me. This is how it's going to make me feel. This is how it's going to remove the pain in my life and bring me pleasure, or bring me health, happiness, or wealth.
Becoming a marketer means learning how to communicate the benefits to your potential customers. There are millions of products and services out there, but there are always a lack of good marketers.
Remember that when you get out there and start making money online, it's all about adding value, demonstrating that value, and showing people what that value is.
