2. Create your own digital products
One of my future goals is to create an eBook for my readers – I honestly get so excited at the thought of creating my very first digital product and will help and benefit my readers in the long run.
Here are some digital products you could consider creating.
- Stock photos/photography
- Digital prints
- WordPress themes
3. Making money online with affiliate marketing
One of my main sources of income on my blog is making money through affiliate marketing.
What’s affiliate marketing?
Affiliate marketing is where you promote another persons product and you earn a commission. Let’s say you purchase a really awesome course priced at $100 and the creator of the course offers an affiliate program with a commission of 25%
Every time you promote that product/course and someone clicks on your special affiliate link and buys the product, you will earn a commission. So, you’ve decided to promote the $100 course and someone buys the course using your affiliate link. You’ve then earned $25.
With affiliate marketing, you don’t generally get paid until about 30 days later, just in case the person who purchased the product requests a refund or for any other reason.
If you want to know more about affiliate marketing, I recommend taking this course. This course is the course that taught me how to make money using affiliate marketing and how I made my first affiliate sale in less than 24 hours as a new blogger.
Affiliate marketing is a great way to make money online.
4. Offer online coaching services
Being an online coach or mentor can be a great way to make money.
Can you help someone build an abundant life? Can you help someone build a totally successful blog and business?
Look and find what your passion is and how your coaching services can help others. Think about the kind of services you can offer to others.
5. Create an online course
If you love teaching or have a good idea for an online course that will help someone else in the long run, go ahead and create one!
What kind of courses can you create?
Honestly, anything! That’s the great thing about creating digital courses.
Here’s a list of digital course ideas to help you get started.
- How to create a successful online business
- Managing your mindset
- An online writing course
- How to manage your money
- How to live a healthy lifestyle
There are endless possibilities when creating an online course and there are people out there who are looking for something to help solve their problem. You can be the one to solve it.
6. Create an eCommerce store
Much like creating an online course, there are also endless possibilities to create an online eCommerce store. Do you have a flare for fashion? Home decor or something else? What’s something someone may need?
A lot of people generally lean towards creating their eCommerce stores on Shopify or Woocommerce.
There’s also a method called Dropshipping, where you don’t actually have any of the physical inventory and the dropshipping company will send the buyers products on your behalf.
Let’s say you want to start your own t-shirt store and you want to create custom made t-shirts, dropshipping stores like Printify will allow you to design your own t-shirts and send out your t-shirts on behalf of you. Pretty cool huh?
7. Become a Virtual Assistant
So, there’s a personal assistant and there’s also a virtual assistant aka VA! Do you have a knack for social media? Can you help out by scheduling out Facebook posts for your client? Send out an email on behalf of them? Are you an excellent bookkeeper? Yes, there are so many things that you can offer as a VA.
Gina from the Horkey Handbook can help you start a successful VA business in just 30 days or less! I’m not affiliated with this course, but I have heard and read so many amazing things about this course. Definitely an affordable course to take if you want to become a VA.
8. Sell your services on Fiverr
