In this section, I’ll detail the main ways I have been making money online full-time for the last 19 years.
For the most part, I have been doing affiliate marketing. This is where I promote other peoples products and make a commission when people buy.
Niche Affiliate Websites
I’ve done this in several ways but the one I prefer is niche affiliate websites. I basically create websites, rank them in Google and place adverts on them.
Amazon.com is one of my preferred affiliate programs. I place their ads on my websites, then when someone visits the website and clicks through to Amazon and buy something, I get a commission.
Not only do I earn commissions but then I have assets (websites). These assets can then be sold on to other people.
I’ve sold more than $100,000 worth of these assets over the years on Flippa.com and to private buyers:
It’s a simple process that can just be repeated time and time again.
Email Affiliate Marketing
One thing I have never really focused on (until now) is list building.
The lists I have from purely from people who buy my products. But nonetheless, I make money by emailing offers to these lists on a daily/weekly basis.
I generally visit JVZoo or WarriorPlus and see what products are popular. Then I write a quick email and send it out to my lists.
Here’s some earning from doing just that:
So, considering I’ve never tried to build lists with much focus, it’s still a good income stream.
I’ve also, more recently, switched things up and started promoting higher ticket affiliate products.
These can pay $400, $1,000 or more PER sale. So those commissions can really add up quick.
If you want to get started in high-ticket, then I highly recommend checking out Brian’s free 90-minute masterclass here and also his main program and coaching. You can check out my bonus for that here.
My Own Products
Another income stream is creating my own digital products.
I’ve created courses detailing what I do and how I make money and also White Label Products. These products give you the rights to sell them for yourself and keep 100% of the profits.
Whilst I will always dabble in other methods to keep adapting, those are the main ways I’ve earned a full-time living online since 2004.
