Step #1 – 9 simple ways to make money in 2017
Where to make money in 2017? There are many different ways a person can earn money online.
Working over the internet is the same as doing it in your job, it requires a lot of work, perseverance and a dedication.
This is my list of 9 different ways where you can make money.
Many BIG gurus started with affiliate marketing many years ago, most of them on an MLM company and they all are selling lies, hopes and hypes, just taking advantage of the people greediness.
So, if you are new, be very careful with all of these MLM companies and start with something that you can offer to the customer, a real product with no pyramid scheme, something that people will buy from you, like Amazon products, your own product or a service.
2.Affiliate. Affiliate Marketing is when you refer someone to any online product, and when that person buys, you will receive a commission.
You don’t need to own a product, you sell other’s product. With some knowledge and a good product, you can make some money.

3.Drop Shipping. You sell fiscal items online without owning them through a supplier. Let’s say you have a blog or a Shopify Website and you are selling watches. You will sell at the normal price you find in a store. The customer buys the watch from you and you are going to send him a watch that you bought a lot cheaper.
Or simply for the product does not have to pass you, talk to the seller to send to your customer but with the highest price, the price that you are selling.
If you talk to eBay or Aliexpress supplier they will certainly do that or send as a gift. (With no price in it)
Let´s say that there is a computer desk on Ebay for $100 and you found the exact same desk for $70 in Walmart, the buyer will buy for $100 but you will send him the $70 from Walmart, you are like the middlemen.
Build your Webstore, sell the products and make money from price differences.
4.Services. You can offer a paid service, such as life coaching, blog coaching, making a website, writing an article, creating a logo design, a mobile app and much more. Just be sure to investigate all the legal implications and make sure you’re not claiming to be a professional if you’re not one.
5.Products. You can create your own product, such as an ebook, computer software or a t-shirt. You will then use your blog as a promotion tool to get people buying your products. As long as you create a legitimate product with lots of value, you should be able to get some buyers, but like everything else with a blog/website, you’ll need the traffic to get the sells.
You can also use Shopify which is a complete e-commerce solution that allows you to set up an online store to sell your goods. It lets you organize your products, customize your storefront, accept credit card payments, track and respond to orders.
6.Videos. Many people have made money by creating YouTube videos with products reviews or tutorials. It’s not easy to get millions of views, but once you do, you’ll start seeing some cash come in. It’s possible to get paid $1000 for each million of view depending on the content, advertising demand and time of the year.
When you upload a video add a smart description – The content of your video in Youtube is important but so is the description because it tells Youtube what other videos can be related to yours in the sidebar.
With a good description, people can read what your video is about, but also and most important, Youtube can too.
The majority of the views do not come from the subscribers, but from searches and from the one related to your content.
Use an intriguing title – Something that invokes curiosity. E.g. “10 tricks to get million of views”.
Attractive thumbnail – Use images with faces, a beautiful girl or yourself with a catchy phrase.
Upload frequency – Upload every 3-4 days in the morning.
Post your video on Reddit.com – There is very good critique and they will tell you if your videos suck.
Keep your video over 5 minutes, 8 minutes is the sweet spot – Youtube value watch time more than they used to, create your video fun and attractive to keep your viewer on your video.
Comment on other videos – Leave a useful comment and people will check out your channel. Especially if you have a cool logo and an interesting channel.
Collaborate with others Youtubers – Don’t be afraid to ask and offer them a video for free until you get lots of new subscribers.
Reply the comments – You will get more comment and will get feedback to improve your channel.
Use a Channel Trailer – A video will automatically play each time a user enter into your channel
Use Annotations – A notifications pop up during the video and redirect the user to another video
Playlist – Put your videos in a playlist. When one video ends, it will automatically load your next video
Use Tags – Using tags, will rank higher on Youtube. Search on Google Adwords to find the best Keywords
Repeat several times the title of your video in the description – At least 3 times and also put the link to your Youtube video on it.(It will help to be visible for Google, which is important).
Struggling to get views?
1. Use TubeBuddy, to find the best keywords and more…
2. Buy Youtube views. BoostSocial, BuyViews, Mediaform.
3. Exchange views. AddMeFast, LikesTool, LikesPlanet.
4. Hire someone that will make a manual submission of your videos to high ranking websites. Fiverr.
7.Advertising. This is definitely the most old-school way of earning money with your site/blog. It’s also starting to become the least common way. You can sell advertising spots directly on your site or you can sign up with a company like Google AdSense who will put an Ad on your website and will pay you a percentage for every click. Either way, you won’t see lots of money from ads until your views reach thousands per day.
8.CPA. Cost-Per-Action. Basically, a CPA network is a network that focuses mainly on Cost-Per-Action or Cost-Per-Acquisition advertising. It’s a type of Affiliate Marketing, but often focuses on leads over sales, you’ll get paid for every contact (email addresses, phone numbers) the users will give you. It’s a little complex, but it’s a great way to generate many leads or sales really fast. It can be tricky.
Never run an offer that hasn’t been tested before. Know your numbers through indicators like Opt-in, Conversions, EPC, etc. If you are paying for leads, make sure to only pay for Double OPT-IN, never single.
9.Buy a lucrative website. You can buy a website but there is a large amount of risk with buying an existing earning website and if you don’t know how to analyze a website traffic and earn potential, you can risk losing a lot of money. So If you are a beginner and you don’t have any knowledge and experience, that’s not for you. Most of the people are scamming the beginners, they inflate traffic states, they lie about the commissions they are earning, and they do all sort of cheating stuff, so if you are a beginner you possibly don’t have a sharp eye to identify all these tricky things.
If you are going to buy one, first you need to set a budget, let’s say, don’t buy a website for more than $5000. Second, you need to analyze everything about the website:
The SEO (when you type a keyword related to your target, check the position in which the website appears on Google Search)
The website age
If they use an autoresponder and the content of the message
The affiliates links
How much publicity the website have
How many views per day,
How much you can potentially earn per month,
The speed of the website,
If Google didn’t de-index the website
Make some research on Google about the website’s owner to learn as much as you can about him, the traffic sources he uses, and another very important thing is to set up a meeting with the buyer by Skype and ask him to share his computer screen with you, by doing this you can verify his revenues and how much money is he making per month.
