In this section, I’ll detail the main ways I have been making money online full-time for the last 17 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.
I’ve been doing this for 17 years now and still love it. In fact, I’ve created a course showing exactly what I do here:
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.
Those are pretty much the main 2 ways I make a living online.
Moving forward with my challenge, I’m going to focus heavily on building lists, funnels and having more focus on delivering quality offers to those lists.
