So, I recommend before mastering all the other basics of internet marketing you really take time to look at what makes a great website. Think about websites that you use frequently… What makes them easy to use? How do they layout their menu options? What design style do you like? What makes it easy to read? Once you have figured this out and built a great website, it will be much easier to master the other basics of internet marketing.
However, the amount you can make with this kind of advertising is limited. According to an analysis by MonetizePros, even hugely successful websites like The Huffington Post, Bleacher Report, and TechCrunch only earn between $6 and $22 per thousand page views. So if your website gets only 10,000 page views a month, this type of advertising would bring in at most $220 a month. In reality, your income will probably be much less, since these top-earning sites have invested years in attracting devoted readers and building teams of high-quality writers.
Sites like Carvertise and Free Car Media pair drivers willing to rent out their cars as ad space with companies seeking this type of advertising. To become a driver, you need to have a vehicle in good shape, a valid driver’s license and insurance, and a clean driving record – since it wouldn’t exactly be good publicity for the company if you got into an accident while sporting its logo. Companies also look for drivers who live in high-traffic areas and drive a certain number of miles per day, to ensure that their ad will be seen by as many people as possible.
2. This article isn’t intended to be about making $50k per year from $0 to start with. This is intended to show different ways that it’s possible to generate $50k in passive income. As for your rental property comment, check out RealtyShares or other similar companies. You can be a rental property owner without having to run the business. You can be a limited partner and just invest in real estate, and leave the actual work to the general partner. Basically, there are options to make $50k without working, but like the first paragraph says – front load your life!
Great overall look at the current state of things. Was a little surprised to see a “possibly sleazy” mention for CJ, but NOT Clickbank… there are TONS of fairly sleazy products on Clickbank from my last look compared to CJ. Commissions are super high on CB (digital/info) products, of course, but the quality on offer there can be far lower than most items on CJ and others.
Thanks for a nice job. I am currently promoting some of the affiliate programs listed here and making a few dollars from them. But I must say that making money from affiliate programs is not rocket science; it requires hard work and perseverance. Affiliate marketing keeps evolving daily and any serious affiliate should be ready to change tactics and invest time and money in order to beat the competition.

One of the easiest ways to establish a passive income stream is to start selling digital products. If you’ve amassed a wealth of knowledge in a specific industry or discovered a valuable hack or tactic that could benefit people in your industry, you can package those insights into an ebook or online course and leave it to generate a monthly income for you. To maximize your profits, it’s always recommended to sell those digital products directly to your audience, ideally on your own website or blog.

Unfortunately, I can’t answer that conclusively one way or the other. It all depends on you, what you like to do, your work ethic, personality, etc. If you are a good writer perhaps you could write a book and make money that way. Or, you could start your own website and do affiliate marketing. Just because you are young it doesn’t mean you can’t make money doing at least a few of these ideas. I wish you luck in your money making efforts!
Continuously analyze your Web traffic and other e-metrics to learn and improve. Find out how people are getting to your site and what they're doing once they get there. Any good Web site statistics software package will tell you how many people are going to your site, what pages they're viewing, what search engines they're coming from and more. If you're using a Web development firm, make sure that they  review this with you on no less than a quarterly basis. Find out what's working and what's not. Redesign your site to make it more effective for your users and for reaching your desired objectives (e.g., get leads, sales, etc.). Integrate your on-line and off-line information to provide a more complete picture of customers and prospects.

Carloine, I don’t see it as a mistake you have not yet monetized your blog. In my view the mistake comes when you try to put the monetization in first. There’s way too many people putting up sites without original content, pasting in go-articles, and thinking if they implement SEO tactics adsense will make them serious money. I doubt any blog will succeeed without good, original content, so I think you are wise to put that in first.
In traditional retail, customers can be personally advised – they should be wooed, cared for, and above all, well-informed. This shouldn’t be any different online, but many marketers forget this basic online marketing principle. Businesses should appeal to customers and try and win them over with their online marketing tactics. Unlike in brick-and-mortar stores, where the shoppers come of their own accord, online is a bit more challenging online as you need to find potential customers in the first place. This is why it’s so important to know your target group so that you know which adverts are better suited to them. Web analysis is an important tool that every marketer should use to measure, analyze, and maximize their online success. By using analysis tools like Google Analytics, you can obtain information about your own target group, its online behavior, and how to go about winning them over.

Affiliate marketing is all about marketing of other companies products and making commission by advertising their product or in other words we can say that Affiliate marketing is an online sales techniques that let a product owner grow its sales by allowing others targeting the same audience - “affiliates” - to earn a commission by promoting the product to others. 

The last principle of our online marketing basics: never lose sight of the return on investment (ROI)! There is a simple calculation if you want to run a successful business: the benefit of an advertising measure must always be higher than the costs incurred. Online marketers use a special indicator to work this out – this is the return on investment. The ROI is used to measure the return on a business activity by showing the profit in relation to the capital invested.

I wouldn't think of a high yield savings account as a source of passive income but your savings should be getting something (less like Seinfeld syndication residuals and more like a commercial jingle residuals!). It won't make you rich but it's nice if your baseline, risk-free rate of return on cash is 1% or more. The best high yield savings accounts (or money market accounts) offer higher interest rate and there is absolutely no risk. CIT Bank currently leads the pack with the highest interest rate.


As an added advantage, reviews tend to rank well for product searches, so provided you build a popular blog the reviews you write should bring in highly targeted visitors from the search engines. Search visitors hunting for product information are generally buyers, they may not stick around your blog for long, but they will click affiliate links and buy things if shopping is the motivation that originally brought them to your blog.

You can try and start another travel blog, but every twenty-something who’s visited South East Asia has one; the market is so saturated that it will be very difficult for you to stand out and start making money. Instead, if you find something you’re interested in that is underserved, you’re far more likely to be able to carve out a space. You’ve a far greater chance of making money with a blog for vintage BMW owners than another generic Thailand travel guide.
Apps Discover is an outstanding platform offering one of the most lucrative offers for affiliate marketers. They have a wide range of offers, with high payouts, easy tracking, and weekly payments. Their optimized tracking methods helps the affiliates to visualize their actual results. The most amazing thing about Apps Discover is they are very clear with their payment policies and in order to maintain a long-term association with their affiliates they make payments on a weekly basis.
There are other alternatives that let you keep a bigger cut of the sales – but those sales might not be as much. For instance, you can publish an e-book through Amazon’s Kindle Direct Publishing and sell it on the Kindle Store, earning royalties of up to 70%. Or you can set up a web store where you can post PDFs, audio files, and video files for download, so your fans can buy them from you directly. However, you won’t necessarily reach a lot of people this way, and you could spend years writing and peddling your works online for $0.99 apiece before they produce a passive income stream that’s bigger than a trickle.

Alternatively, sites like CreateSpace can help you turn your work into a printed book, e-book, CD, or DVD and sell it online through your own e-store or through Amazon. However, this site also takes the lion’s share of the profits. For example, the site reports that if you have a black-and-white printed book, 184 pages long, and you set the sale price at $8.99, you get to keep only $2.34 for every copy you sell. If you set your sale price too low, you might not make any money on your sales at all – and if you set it too high, you might not actually sell any copies.
Contrary to what some may believe, companies don’t need a never-ending budget in order to participate. With the right online marketing strategies, small and medium businesses are finding new ways to compete against the Goliaths. Even with a limited budget, companies are able to get creative and reach customers at each stage of the purchasing cycle. Whether a searcher is first considering a purchase or at the final stage before checkout, they will see your brand at every step of the way.
Content marketing is more than just blogging. When executed correctly, content including articles, guides (like this one), webinars, and videos can be powerful growth drivers for your business. Focus on building trust and producing amazing quality. And most of all, make sure that you’re capturing the right metrics. Create content to generate ROI. Measure the right results. This chapter will teach you how.
So it’s awesome to hear you’re out there promoting other programs. When it comes to those in-house programs, I absolutely agree. One reason I think they’re incredibly lucrative is just the flexibility that you have with them. You’ll usually be dealing with decision makers that can make special changes to their funnel to meet your website needs even better. I’ve known affiliates that have even helped these in-house programs with their CRO to get better conversions. Definitely not the kind of access you’re going to get with the Amazon Associates program
The idea behind cashback is simple: you get rewarded for purchasing or using products you plan to buy anyway. Cashback sites pay you when you click through them, go to retailers, and spend. For example, check out eBates.com - There are over 2,000 stores to choose from including Walmart, Target, Sears, Calvin Klien, and others. You also get a $10 gift card after your first $25 purchase. Sign up is free. (If you encounter a cashback site where it’s not, avoid it.
