7 Things to Sell To Make Money Online

Well, yes, we know many people throughout the world wonder whether making money online is really possible. After all, it seems way too good to be true, doesn’t it?

Avoiding the scams

Make Money Online Idea #1: Make a YouTube Channel
I published my first video on my YouTube channel on October 6th, 2016. It was so crappy. It was a video of me traveling to Portugal to celebrate the success of my first online business idea. The entire trip was recorded from my iPhone.

It took 6 months before I made my first $1 from YouTube.

Those 6 months were brutal. The only people that were watching my videos was my mom and dad. And the entire process just felt like a waste of time.

There were many times that I just wanted to call it quits and to focus on something that made me more money for the time I was putting into it. But luckily, I continued to pump out more and more videos.

After a year of consistently publishing 2-3 videos a week, I now make an extra $50-$80/day simply by the ads that run before my video is played.

The reason why I love this online business idea is because these videos will last forever. And the views that I receive on a daily basis still remain consistent even if I don’t post videos for a while.

Here is how this business idea makes money:

Google pays you to run ads on your videos
Affiliate sales by recommending products in the description
Driving the traffic to your blog (most recommended)
Once you have a good amount of videos up, YouTube can provide constant flow of traffic to your affiliate offers and products or services. Its this constant flow that gives you the ability to make money in your sleep.

Here’s how I got started:

Research the niche that you want to get into
Find videos with high views and low subscribers
Make 10-15 videos about those similar topics
Once you have those corner stone videos getting views from being shown in the related videos on the similar videos you modeled, consistently pump out at least 2-3 videos a week
Watch your subscribers slowly grow over time
This is the exact process I used to go from zero subscribers to now around 250-500 subscribers a day.
Make Money Online Idea #2: Blogging
As awesome as YouTube is, blogging is far more powerful. Why is that you ask?

Well for one, when people are viewing your YouTube videos, you technically do not own any of those viewers; YouTube does. In most cases it’s no problem, but all it takes is one mistake with YouTube’s terms & conditions and you’re out of a business.

Blogging is different. You are the one that owns all the traffic that comes to your site. Meaning you will always be in business as long as you focus on providing value.

I didn’t start focusing on this business idea until the beginning of 2017.

All I regret is one thing: I wish I would have started sooner.

Not only has blogging allowed me to help impact more people, it has also given me the ability to showcase all of my best resources for teaching people how to make money online in one place.

When I first started blogging, I was not computer savvy at all and had no idea how to create a blog. But luckily, Bluehost (the hosting service that mikevestil.com was initially built on) helped guide me throughout the entire process, and I had my blog up and running in no more than 10 minutes.

However, what most people forget is that although it is certainly possible to making money from online, it’s surely not that easy. In fact, the reason many people fall for online scams is simply because they try to look for such easy ways to make money, which makes them invest money in things that seem very promising and rewarding but never really pay anything.

Finding the genuine ways

Hence, you need to be really careful while trying to earn money online. Investing a huge amount without gaining complete knowledge about something is a big NO, as you may end up losing all your money. On the other hand, putting in a lot of efforts and time into something that you know for sure is a genuine way of making money online, and makes you feel comfortable while working on it, may really help you make quite a bit of side income without even investing anything.

The below given seem to be some steps to find out whether a given network or method is a genuine way of money making online or not. However, please also note that although these steps may help you avoid most of the scams, it doesn’t mean that something that doesn’t meet these requirements is a scam for sure.

Make Money Online Idea #3: Sell an Ebook
So after my initial success, I began traveling the world. The entire time I was traveling, I wrote down stories on my blog on what happened, the things I’ve seen, and the lessons I’ve learned.

Once I had enough content, I went over to Kindle and uploaded all of the content on there. I then went to Fiverr.com and had someone make me a book cover for only $5. That was the birth of The Lazy Man’s Guide to Living the Good Life.

One of the benefits of creating a blog is that you can monetize all the material on it in a more organized fashion in the form of a book.

For those that love the 4 Hour Work Week by Tim Ferriss, all that book was was a compilation of all of the old blog posts on Tim Ferris’ blog.

I ended up following his footsteps.

Even though my sales suck compare to the 4 Hour Work Week, I am still able to get an extra $100 – $200/ month profit without investing any more time into it.

Most people would see this as pennies compared to the other money making ideas out there, but the power of writing books is that it will exist forever.

This is income that has consistently been coming in and it’s not going anywhere.

And ever since I moved to Chiang Mai, Thailand to focus on my YouTube channel and my journey towards financial freedom, it’s enough to pay for my fully furnished apartment while I run around Asia building my personal brand.

Here is the action steps you can do to get started:

Create a blog
Document your entire journey to building your first online business from any of these ideas on this blog post
Naturally people will find you from the search engines and begin following your story
After you get your first major success, package all of your blog posts into an eBook and paperback book for free on Amazon Kindle
The visitors of your blog will naturally see your book
They will end up buying it because of the value and inspiration that you have already provided to them
I never thought in a million years that I would become “an author.” I was a C+ writer in high school at best. But there is this crazy feeling you get once you finish a book. You begin to realize that the book will last forever long after you’re gone. And that it has the power to impact millions, leaving a legacy that you can be proud of.

The only question now is what legacy will you be leaving behind when you are gone?
Make Money Online Idea #4: Sell a Course
So if you focused your attention on building up a YouTube brand and a blog, naturally people will want to learn directly from you. They will thank you for all the free content that you have given them, and they’ll tell you how it was all life changing.

I remember when I got my first thank you email or snapchat message of how my free content on my blog and YouTube channel had helped someone make their first $100 online. It was mind blowing. I didn’t know how much of an impact I was actually having on people.

And these people that you have helped get initial success..

They will want more.

When I first got to this point, I tried helping everyone one on one as much as I could. But as my brand grew, I started to lose my time because I couldn’t help thousands of people personally every single day.

So to make things easier for myself and for everyone else, I ended up making a course. I realized that every single person I taught, I taught the exact same thing. So if I could organize them all into a video screen share tutorial, then it would give me the ability to impact more people.
    • Anything that promises you to make rich online within a few weeks or so may well turn out to be a total scam. After all, just like everything else in the world, it takes hard work, skills, and efforts to earn money online. If you are looking for easy money, you may never make money online consistently, and may instead end up falling for a scam and wasting your own money.
    • Anything that doesn’t have any proofs of their earnings, payouts, establishment, or history may not really be reliable enough. We are not trying to say that all such networks may be frauds, but it may be a bit too risky to invest money in them.
  • If there’s a method that involves scamming, cheating, or exploiting something or someone to earn money easily, it may not only be a scam, but also something illegal. Hence, involving yourself with anything of this sort may put you in legal trouble as well.

The above given are actually just the basic things you need to keep in mind in order to avoid falling for scams. There’s actually a lot more to it.

On the other hand, however, anything that seems to be making perfect business sense, boasts of a sound business model, and seems something reasonably well-paying may definitely be a genuine way of making money online.

For example, there are many affiliate networks out there that pay huge amounts of money to their affiliates. All you need to do is research a particular network before partnering up with them.

Make Money Online Idea #5: Affiliate Marketing
Now as your brand grows because of the amount of value you provide, your audience will begin asking for more products that have helped you out.

For example for me, people wanted to know the exact softwares I was using to run my business.

The two major ones that I use are Shopify for anything eCommerce related and Clickfunnels for anything sales funnels related.

And since these two had affiliate programs, I would get a commission whenever I would recommend these products.

I would have recommended these products regardless. But with affiliate marketing, I get paid to share the products that I personally love using.
Make Money Online Idea #5: Product Sales Funnels
Product sales funnels are amazing. What are they? In essence, they give you the ability to sell more shit.

Plain and simple.

Product sales funnels have these things called up sells, down sells, cross sells, all of these increase the lifetime value of a customer.

I highly recommend product sales funnels because they are the most efficient in making high revenues with low spend on advertising.
