A Comprehensive Guide Answering
"How To Make Money Online"
Virtually Every Known Way, With Pros & Cons:
Many of us have done it, even if we have a job we like, the
drudgery of getting up, going to work, watching the clock
trickle down all day...The tediousness of it makes us want
to ask "How do I make money online?
So, we type "How to make money online" in search bars.
Truly though, we do so because we've asked ourselves other questions first, such as:
Wouldn't it be nice if we could sleep in until we're ready to
get up?...Then, have a cup of coffee (or tea, or whatever your morning "pick-me-up drink is). Then check the news,
and stock portfolio if we have one. Then, once bored, we head
to our desk to begin our work day. Free to take a break
whenever we like. No one looking over our shoulder. No one telling us what to do, when to work, or even when to quit,
for the day.
Deep in some minds is this fantasy that IBM, NASA, or some other massive company will hire us to work from home.
I know people personally that work for Boeing from home,
but they have advanced training in aerodynamic systems,
without those skills, Boeing is not going to hire anyone to work
at home for any high paying position, nor is any other giant company for that matter.
However, the dream is not dead. We must explore all the other
possibilities, and open our minds to them.
There are numerous ways to make money online, and the best method for you depends on your skills, interests, and the
amount of time, effort, and possibly money, you are willing to invest in the idea.
Here are some popular options, certain not in order of
"quality" necessarily, just popularity.
We add some pros & cons for each:
Freelancing: Platforms like Upwork, Freelancer, and Fiverr connect freelancers with clients looking for services such as writing, graphic design, programming, marketing, and more.
-Pros: Find work pretty quickly
-Cons: Have to give a portion of your already small earnings
to the website company.)
Online Surveys and Reviews: Participate in online surveys or write product reviews on platforms like Swagbucks, Survey Junkie, InboxDollars, or Amazon's Mechanical Turk.
-Pros: Anyone can do it.
-Cons: It's usually a ridiculous amount of mind numbing work,
you could never use to improve yourself, nor your resume,
and it pays next to nothing for the time you must spend on it.
Remote Work and Telecommuting: Some companies offer remote work opportunities, allowing you to work from home.
Job boards like "Remote OK" and "We Work Remotely" can help you find such positions.
-Pros: If you can find one, it might work out for you.
-Cons: If you can find one. They're usually "not available in
your area" or fully staffed already.
Product Affiliate Marketing: Promote products and earn a commission for every sale made through your unique affiliate link. Amazon Associates, ClickBank, and ShareASale are popular affiliate marketing platforms.
-Pros: If you are in the top 1/10th o1 percent of folks that started years ago, you probably make some great money.
-Cons:Finding the right items is almost impossible, and all the good ones are saturated beyond belief.
Online Courses and Ebooks: If you have expertise in a particular field, create and sell online courses or ebooks on platforms like Udemy, Teachable, or Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing.
-Pros: If you're extremely talented and have the time to write
quality books that sell (or have best selling books out already) this could be a dream platform for you.
Cons: Same as the pros: "IF" you have the talent and time, is
Stock Photography: If you are a photographer, you can sell
your photos to stock photo websites like Shutterstock, Adobe Stock, or Getty Images.
-Pros: If you're extremely talented and have the time to take a billion photos to get a few masterpieces, this could let you eke out an income.
-Cons: Lots of competition. Lots of image theft. Be ready to sue
people, only to have them file bankruptcy on you, wasting your
legal fees paid.
Virtual Assistance: Offer virtual assistance services to busy professionals or businesses. Websites like Upwork and Virtual Assistant Jobs list opportunities in this field.
-Pros: If you get in the right situation, it could be satisfactory.
-Cons: Certainly the most saturated online position. Just go on
Linked In for a minute. You'll get people you never met asking
you to hire them as your VA (Virtual Assistant.)
Content Creation: Start a blog, YouTube channel, or podcast
and monetize through ads, sponsorships, or affiliate marketing.
-Pros: If you can do it, you could make some good money.
-Cons: If you started during Covid, when everyone was glued
to places like YT, you may have a great opportunity. If not, get in
line...like the mile long soup lines of Europe during WWII.
Product Sales E-commerce: Sell products online through platforms like Etsy, eBay, or Shopify.
You can sell handmade items, vintage goods, or even dropship products.
-Pros: If done professionally, it could be a very profitable and
exhilarating experience, especially if you have access to
inexpensive inventory, on a regular basis, such as Storage Locker
bidding. It's possible to make millions in a day "on paper",
just like Mr. Sheets of TV's Storage Wars did.
-Cons: It's not all work from home to make the big bucks, you
have to find items to sell, or else "make them", or else buy them cheaply online. You could get stuck with a bunch of unsellable merchandise, too... Definitely not what our "dream" from above is, but it can be a lot of fun, to be fair.
Remote Consulting or Coaching: If you have expertise in a particular area, offer consulting or coaching services online
through platforms like Clarity.fm or Coach.me.
-Pros: If you get in the right situation, it could be satisfactory.
-Cons: Good luck finding the right opportunity, it's quite saturated.
Stock Trading or Cryptocurrency: If you have a good understanding of financial markets, you can try your hand at
stock trading or cryptocurrency trading.
-Pros: By FAR the best chance anyone ever could have of getting rich online. For example A1 Financial put out a stock tip in
October for the stock TPST (Tempest Therapeutics). It went
from .17 to over $7 in one day. One of their clients bought $1,000
of the stock, and sold the lot for over $35,000...all in one day.
A1 offers a complete Stock Trading course for just $299.
-Cons: The Stock Market is volatile, and unpredictable, and you
could always lose money. Practicing with a "virtual" platform, or
at least making "pretend" trades, and tracking your abilities is
quite wise before using real money.
Online Tutoring: Teach others your skills or knowledge through online tutoring platforms like Chegg Tutors, Tutor.com, WyzAnt
-Pros: If you serve an "in demand" audience, or can find a plethora of customers in your filed, you could make a living.
-Cons: Finding customers through platforms mean you're giving
up about 25% of your earnings to them. If you can find your own
clients, you can do well. Perhaps advertise through school systems.
Commission Only Platforms: Corporate platforms, such as A1 Financial USA's, offer non-employees to work on their own
schedule, by bringing information of clients, or employee candidates, to the company. There is no base pay, but if you can open your mind to earing commission, you'll soon see that one can earn so much more than one would on base pay. In fact, opening you mind may reveal the long sought after answers to not only a lucrative career, but to happiness in life, in general.
Many times the problem isn't the problem...but the way you
think about it is the problem.
This platform type can be a perfect fit for many who simply
can not, or will not, work away from home.
Here's examples of how "commission only" is better:
A)-Good paying non commission job:
$50/hr work 40 hours/week =$2,000/wk. Work on your employer's schedule. Always fear layoffs, store closings, & terminations.
Likely you have to work your Birthday, weekends, and maybe even Holidays. You have to commute, incurring gas fees, mechanical issues, other car expenses...possibly even tickets
if you speed because you're late...these are quite expensive nowadays.
B)- Commission only Referral Affiliate career:
If you want to earn money online without any cost, nor skills,
nor experience, nor website, A1 Financial USA has a program
for you. Influencers, Bloggers, Social Media gurus, and those knowing many people, or having contact abilities to many people, should sign up to earn easy money. Franchising opportunities
also exist, and can be up to 5x what one can earn as an Affiliate, that come with the A1 Company Benefit of loan opportunities
up to $625,000, to cover bills while you train and grow your new business. You can safely work at home, when & how much you want, never fear losing your job. Just find 3 clients a week to compare to A), above. The average commission for 3 clients on
the FREE-to-join A1 Referral Program is $700/ea or $2,100/wk.
-Pros: Free to sign up, no cap on commissions, no training,
work when you want, easiest legal way to make money known
to mankind, if you know, or can contact, a lot of people.
There's 2 ways to make money: 1) Refer folks to take out Business and (700+FICO) Personal loans, or to Franchise with A1.
2 steps to begin: Watch the A1 Referral Video on YouTube,
click here to watch now. Then, after watching:
Email A1 at admin@A1FinancialUSA.com, an A1 representative will call you shortly. If 1 hour passes without a call, A1 is likely busy assisting many clients. Please call (909) 930-9159 and leave a slow, clear, and complete message.
-Cons: You have to watch a 2 minute video, and send an email.
C) A1 Commissioned Franchisee: Work when & how much you want. If you find 3 clients a week: The average commission for 3 clients on the Franchisee Program is $3,500/ea or $10,500/wk.
Quite a difference.
-Pros: You can earn astronomical money, all from home, on your own schedule. A1's top earner made $871,000 in a year. Average part timers earn over $200K/yr. Virtually every one that
takes the in-depth training, and passes the Final Exam learns
so much, there is nothing standing in the way of earning large
sums of money, very fast, any longer.
-You need no math skills
-You need no website
-You need only a working computer, working phone,
English reading comprehension, typing & speaking abilities
-You set your own work schedule 100%
-You work 100% from home, or anywhere you want if it has internet
-There are no quotas
-You can never be fired nor laid off
-No cap on commissions, so you can earn unlimited income
-Never a boss "breathing down your neck, or "watching your every move"...
-Take off whenever you want. If you have a live deal, but have to
fly somewhere, let us know, we'll complete it for you, no loss of commission whatsoever.
-A1 Company Benefit of loan opportunities up to $625,000,
to cover bills while you train and grow your new business.
-Feel good helping others improve their livelihoods
-Become A Certified Loan Officer with the A1 Training included free in your Franchise...transferrable to an office (if you want to
get back to a public office setting.)
-Free tax help to help alleviate the worst "con" (see below:)
-The most disturbing is you'll likely have to pay more in taxes than
you ever did in your life,. Overall it's a good thing, because you're
making more than ever, too.
-You will have to take the training, learn a ton of new things,
pass the Final Exam...(only 2 out of 136 franchisees ever failed it and then gave up.) 90% pass on the first try. It's only High School
level difficulty. If you grauated High School, you can pass.
Also , you can re-test every 24 hours, 100% free of charge.
-All franchises have franchise fees...However: Only pay franchise fees when training is included free, otherwise it
may be a scam. We've all heard the horror stories. Pizza parlors
that offer franchises without training, were known scams.
Same with hair salons. The only way to know if a franchise is
real, is, if they offer free training...like Domino's, Jimmy John's,
Subway, etc., do...Free Training is a clear and good sign,
a green flag of safety that screams "Go Fo It - We care about
A1 Financial offers free training, it consists of 5 days online, of
in-depth training. Have no fear, your training manager will hold
your hand every step of the way, answering all your questions.
If you don't learn, you don't succeed, and if you don't succeed, the company misses out on lending opportunities...Thus:
Your success is A1's success. It's quite important to A1 that
you succeed as a Franchisee. Ask us for help any time.
Remember that success in any online venture often requires time, dedication, and persistence. It's important to choose a method that aligns with your skills and interests. It will increase your chances of long-term success. The old adage "Do what you love, and you'll never work a day in your life" is so true, but can also be interpreted as:
"Do what you like "enough", that is lucrative "enough",
and you'll have a great, happy life."
If ever the thought of working in any job, be it online, or in person, makes you cringe, start looking at other opportunities,
be they online or in person. Life's too short to be both broke
AND miserable..."Improve yourself to improve your life."
