Marketing Checkpoint

Recommended Posts

There are many answers in this thread - and lots to read - perhaps too much…

I will suggest one good way that allows you to earn on autopilot - it is truly passive once it’s been set up :





I’m not talking about writing novels or textbooks: this is about creating low content books that everyone uses, and which Amazon prints for customers on demand. If you get this right, you can be earning money from sales of your books without lifting a finger - which is why it’s really a passive / autopilot method.


Some advantages:


It does not require huge intellectual effort: low content books are precisely that: low content. They don’t have much in them.

Amazon sells them for you: there’s a huge number of buyers trawling Amazon every second for books.

There’s no startup cost, no inventory - Amazon does everything.

The sky’s the limit: some low content book vendors make $1000s per day!

The downsides:


You do have to create something - there’s some graphical effort required to create interiors and covers - but you can find people who can help, and there are plenty of free sources for interiors (see RESOURCES at the end of my answer).

It’s Amazon - so there’s a 60 day delay before payment - which is not ideal but if you’re going to make a serious effort to make this work, then it’s not really an issue.

Margins: Amazon takes the lion’s share but you can still make a decent profit of a few $ per book sale. This is often more than an author would make with a major publisher - bear this in mind.

Getting Started


A Quora answer is not the best place to explain the ins and outs of making a living with KDP, so check out the resources list at the end which will take you to the next step. The basic plan of attack though is:


Find a niche and subniche for which you can create something and where there is both demand and little already available. Some standard techniques can be used to identify good subniches to address. A lined notebook would be too broad and difficult to sell, but a lined notebook for medical students might be much more appealing.

Open an account with Amazon KDP (free, of course)

Create your interior - either obtain one, or make it yourself (I use Powerpoint but some people use Canva.)

Create your cover - either yourself using places like Canva or get someone on Fiverr to make one for you if you’re not confident.

Upload your files to KDP - job done!

Now promote your book until it startes to generate sales. Again, many ways to do this! I have found Amazon advertising to be easy to set up, really effective and inexpensive. And once the book is selling you can stop spending money on ads.



KDP is an honest way to generate money online: it’s pretty straightforward and doesn’t require much in the way of maintenance once you’ve done the upfront work to create your books. It is, however, something that has subtleties that you should research: not every book is going to be a best seller. BUT - there is a great chance that yours could sell like hot cakes if you get it right - and make you a nice income!




Amazon KDP: start here by creating an account


istack.link is chock-full of free resources for low content book authors - definitely worth bookmarking and should be your first stop after getting your KDP account.


Facebook has so many great resources and training. Here are a few to check out


Corvin Van Stone: a prolific low content publisher with so many generous insights - definitely check out his page!

Earning money has typically been associated with and restricted to traditional 'offline' route. With the Internet taking over a large part of our lives, more people are looking to ways to earn money online to increase their financial inflows, with secondary income streams.

You should be mindful of the platform that you choose. While there are numerous ways to earn money online, some of these might be fake. Also, do not expect to earn a huge amount quickly when using online avenues to earn money.


1. Freelancing

Freelancing has always been a popular way to earn money online and the Internet has several options. There are several websites offering freelance tasks for people with varying skills. All you need to do is to create an account, browse through the listings, and apply for the task that suits you. Some websites may even require you to create a personal listing with the details of your skillset, so that interested clients can contact you directly. Outfiverr.com, upwork.com, freelancer.com, and worknhire.com are some websites that provide freelance jobs. You can earn anywhere between $5 and $100 through these websites.

But remember, you will only get paid once you successfully complete the given task and it has been approved by your client. This may even mean revising the work several times unless the requirements of your clients are met. Some sites may ask you to set up a PayPal account, as most clients prefer to make payments digitally via it.


2. Starting your own website

There is enough material available online to help you put together a website. This includes choosing the domain, templates, layout and the overall design for your website. Once ready to service the visitors with the relevant content, sign up for Google Adsense, which when appear on your website and clicked on by visitors, help you make money. The more traffic you get on your website, the more will be the potential for higher earnings.


3. Affiliate marketing

Once your website is up and running, you could opt for affiliate marketing by allowing companies to insert web links on to your site. This is like a symbiotic partnership. When visitors to your site buy products or services by clicking on such links, you earn out from it.


4. Surveys, searches and reviews

There are various websites offering money to undergo online surveys, carry out online searches, and write reviews on products. To get the credit, one needs to disclose certain information to them including one's banking details. This is why you should use this route with utmost care. Some of them may even ask you to register with them before working on projects. The most important watch out in such projects is to stay away from websites offering money that appears too good to be true. Be careful while evaluating the reputation of the website as many of them could be a scam. Most sites promote businesses showing copies of cheque payments which may have been given to the middlemen only.


5. Virtual assistantship

Doing all the corporate stuff from one's home is what virtual assistant (VA) does. VAs basically work remotely with their clients and manage the aspects of their business that they are too busy to handle themselves. When you work as a virtual assistant, you can choose to work as an employee or you can set up your own business.

VAs are skilled, home-based professionals that offer companies, businesses, and entrepreneurs administrative support. Some of the major areas of work includes making phone calls, email correspondence, Internet research, data entry, scheduling appointments, editing, writing, book keeping, marketing, blog management, proofreading, project management, graphic design, tech support, customer service, event planning, and social media management.

Becoming a VA may require some degree of training or briefing, depending on your qualifications. However, if you possess good communication skills and are capable of using applications like MS Office, you can just sign up on sites such as Elance.com, 24/7 Virtual Assistant, Assistant Match, eaHelp, Freelancer, FlexJobs, People Per Hour, Uassist.Me, Upwork, VaVa Virtual Assistants, Virtual Staff Finder, Worldwide 101, Ziptask, Zirtual and so on.


6. Language translating

Knowing a language other than English may even help you earn some extra money. There are several websites that offer translation projects that require translating a document from one language into another. This may include Spanish, French, Arab, German, or any other language to or from English.

For many, this can make the task rather time-consuming and therefore they hire translators available online from anywhere across the globe. Several websites such as Freelancer.in, Fiverr.com, worknhire.com or Upwork.com offers you a platform to be a professional translator.

Those who do not have the knowledge or the time to complete their projects on their own, put up their work on these platforms where you can register and start bidding on translation jobs and get paid in the range of Rs 1-Rs 5 per word. This can go up to Rs 10 for some languages.


7. Online tutoring

If you are an expert in a particular subject, you can earn by tutoring people online. Online tutoring provides a means to connect online with students of all ages, across the country to provide homework help and tutoring in the subjects for which you have demonstrated expertise.

One may sign up on websites like Vedantu.com, MyPrivateTutor.com, BharatTutors.com, tutorindia.net as an online tutor by creating a profile, and listing the subjects or classes you want to teach, how much experience you have, what your qualifications are, etc. Some of the platforms may offer flexible and convenient time to work as an online tutor.

Most platforms follow this process- they ask you to apply by filling a simple form, after which a teaching demo will have to given their experts. Once selected, documentation and profile creation will be done, followed by training and induction webinar. Once you attend the webinar, you will be listed as a teacher and will get your online sessions to conduct. Beginners can make around Rs 200 per hour, which can go up to Rs 500 as you gain experience and expertise.


8. Social media management, strategy

In addition to interacting with friends and strangers, social networking platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat can be used to make money. Companies and brands pay social media strategists to further boost the popularity of their products. With lots of competition around and the constantly shortening of attention time of online viewers, creativity is essential to create posts, videos etc that can go viral quickly and enhance the brand value. Remember, social media needs dedicated time and energy to stay relevant. Hence, you need to share posts regularly and interact with your followers on a regular basis.


9. Web designing

Not all business owners are tech savvy but the need of the hour is to have a website of their own. Those who have a knack for all- things- tech, especially related to websites, can help small businesses set up their own websites and earn from it. Coding and web designing are the essential ingredients in setting up websites. Further, websites need maintenance and may require frequent updates, which may add to one's revenue.


10. Content writing

Online platforms can be a good starting point. Depending on the quality of the articles, one gets paid. One may be asked to work upon articles with specific guidelines as well. Develop a niche in your area of expertise and build strength in that domain to increase the revenue stream.


11. Blogging

It starts with a hobby, interest, and passion and soon blogging becomes a career option for many bloggers. There are a number of full-time bloggers. There are two ways to start a blog: you can either create a blog through Wordpress or Tumblr, which requires no investment, or go for a self-hosted blog.

In case of the latter, you will have to invest in and spend money on domain name and server hosting space that can cost you between Rs 3,000-Rs 5,000 a year. Self-hosted blogs have an added advantage that it allows you to customise elements and functionality of your website. In case of the former, you need to make peace with the tools and plug-ins made available by the service provider.

You may monetise the blogs through ads, product reviews, and so on. But remember, earning through blogging may also take a lot of time and effort. For some, it may take as long as year to actually earn through blogging.


12. YouTube

If you are not comfortable in penning down your thoughts through blogs and content writing, make use of your camera to create a video presentation. Create your YouTube channel, upload videos and start monetising them. Choose a category or subject that you want to make videos on and get started, but make sure it's a topic that will interest a lot of people. Everything from cooking shows to political debates can find many takers on YouTube. You have to create a YouTube channel, which works on a similar model as a blog. As you make your channel popular and the number of subscribers grows, so will your earning potential. The payment one gets is based on every thousand views.


13. Kindle eBook

If writing books interests you, one option you can exercise is self-publish eBooks and paperbacks with Kindle Direct Publishing, and reach millions of readers on Amazon. Publishing takes less than 5 minutes and your book appears on Kindle stores worldwide within 24-48 hours. One can earn up to 70 percent royalty on sales to customers in the US, Canada, UK, Germany, India, France, Italy, Spain, Japan, Brazil, Mexico, Australia, and so on. One can keep control of one's rights and set their own list prices and also make changes to one's books at any time. BooksFundr and Pblishing.com are two other places to get your book published and earn money.


14. Selling your products online

If you want to sell products online, you may can it by creating your own website. As there's lot of competition and several existing websites in place already catering to this market, an attempt to create a niche in terms of products may be considered. Or, you can use the platform such as Amazon, Flipkart to sell. One can increase reach and visibility through affiliate marketing.


15. PTC sites

Several websites offer money (after a minimum level of earning) by clicking on advertisements. Hence, they are called paid-to-click (PTC) sites. One has to get registered before the project begins. Not all of these sites could be genuine, so be careful. One may also refer friends and earn money in the process. Some such sites are ClixSense.com , BuxP and NeoBux are some of such PTC sites.


16. Peer to peer

Similar to e-commerce websites such as Amazon and OLX, a peer-to-peer (P2P) platform is a marketplace for money lending activities. You can lend money to others in a more organised and structured manner using the P2P lending platform. The P2P platforms have the recovery process in place and one should understand it before using the services of the platform. Since this is an unsecured loan where there is no face-to-face interaction, a P2P lender needs to be aware of the risks involved.


17. Data entry

Although this line of work is seriously threatened by automation, there are still plenty of data entry jobs available in India. It is one the simplest jobs you can do online, and requires no special skills. You just have to have a computer, Internet connection, fast typing skills, and the ability to pay attention to details. Most freelancing websites list these jobs, and you can sign up on any of them to start earning in the range of Rs 300 to Rs 1,500 per hour.

Blimey. Amazing content, loads to get through.  I have been researching this topic for a few years and found so many ways to make money online.  This then turned into how do I make money every second in normal day to day tasks.  This then resulted in loads of apps and different programs keeping up with technology.  Below is a list of methods I use to make money online.

  • Rewards for walking - This converts into free advertising which gets me 150 leads a week.  
  • Rewards for listening to the radio/music online, great for the gym
  • Affiliate marketing - Traffic methods
  • Selling books online

Always good to keep a few options open but find one you can specialise in and become a master so you can make money daily.

Now, before i answer this and give you the easiest way to make money online just for you since we are all wired differently and what works for me is different from what will work for you i would like to know what your plan is, are you looking for a short-term fix or long-term plan or both? Before you invest your hard earned money the number one thing you need to know is, in any business there is a risk attached to it. And so you need to take a calculated risk and seek for transparency in any opportunity you decide to venture in. I.e. How they make their money, who is who in the company and their qualifications etc...

The easiest way to make money online is Clicking Ads that pay cash but the income from that is next to nothing unless you can recruit a lot of downlines. I still think the best way to make money online is having Your own Website and offer services to people.

I love making money online. If you want to make money online like me, consider the following ways:



Freelancing has long been a popular method to make money online, and there are numerous choices available on the Internet. Several websites provide freelancing opportunities for persons with a variety of abilities. All you have to do is sign up for an account, explore the job postings, and apply for the job that interests you.

  • Sell Your Photos Online

Are you a photographer or do you reside in a region where photos are in high demand? So, how does it function? Photographers may submit their photos to any of a number of massive databases, making them available for purchase by magazine editors, designers, and any other group with a website. The beauty of stock websites is that photos may be sold several times, allowing you to earn money without exerting any effort.

  • Do Translation

Translation job is a relatively neglected sector if you need to generate money right now. To perform this successfully, you'll need to know at least two languages. If you're multilingual or studied a popular language in school, this might be a lucrative business opportunity for you.

Proof of your skill to translate will be required. Make sure to provide samples of your portfolio if you have a language degree or expertise translating material. A translation exam is usually required by most employers. Keep in mind that you must be a native speaker of the languages for which you are applying to work as a translator. As a result, you will be unable to make use of translation software.
  • Become a Content Writer

If you are interested in becoming a content writer, ​online platforms are a fantastic place to start. One is compensated based on the quality of the content. It's also possible that you'll be requested to work on articles with particular instructions. To expand your revenue stream, carve yourself a specialty in your area of knowledge and establish strength in that arena.

Honestly the easiest money I've ever made online

was simply buying cryptocurrencies.  But you need

some money to start out.  I've made several thousand

dollars in the past few days with SHIB. Nothing I've ever

done online before has every come close to the amount

of money I've made and the ease at which it came.


I invested $650 in SHIB about two months and if I cashed out

my SHIB balance right now I would have a profit of approx $6,272.

This is a good thread with some great answers. For me the easiest way to make money online is through Bitcoin(BTC) Its the only way I know that you can start with zero investment, earn money from mining, which then gets transferred into a Freebitcoin account which earns 4% Interest, that can then be transferred into Coinbase, where you can do multiple things with it


I like the idea of money working for me, instead of working for money

I joined an Instant Pay Site that Pay's 100% commissions and cost $19....I have had a lot of success with this,Not getting rich but a few $100 dollars

a month is nice and it helps me pay for advertising to other sites I have...I don't understand why more people don't do this,It's easy,they offer 300+ downloads

with your membership and there are no administration fees to get in the way and I have never had an issue with Paypal doing this.They get a Slight fee for each transaction

but I'm okay with that.

Making Money Online is easy but it's important to have a business that pays you weekly regardless of the amount of money you earn.Being involved with a good company that pays you by Direct Deposit is the only ones i will do anymore. I was working some decent programs years ago that paid only when you made $100 and they closed up shop before I ever got paid. Live Good and Best Easy Work both pay by Direct Deposit and are honest and dependable.
