There is always a discussion on the Internet about the topic, ‘how to make money online from home‘.
Many people will be very overwhelmed with so much information, I know I was.
In this article I will try to explain the different ways that I personally use and used to make money online from home, past and present.
The various methods have produced me anywhere from 100’s per month to multiple 1000’s per month, but first…
A Little Bit About Me…
You can get my full bio from the About Me page at the top of this site, but here is the 20 second version.
I have had 14+ years experience in building MLM Companies but had miserable results when trying to build the business offline.
I eventually quit that company and trying to build offline, and turned to the online world, I started a lower cost MLM Opportunity and started putting my head into training courses that taught me how to make money from home online.
Fast forward 6 1/2 years, I figured a lot out, and finally was able to earn a full time income from home and eventually grew it into 6 figures per year, just using Internet Marketing to sell products, services, opportunities and programs.
I am telling you this not to brag, but to let you know that what I am sharing below is coming from a person that is successful making money from home online.
So, enough about me and my story, lets dive into some of the programs I personally used to make money online from home, and hopefully you can use some of my knowledge so that you can start working on your success story too!
I figured I break them down into sections to make it easier to follow, hope it helps.
Making Money From Click Bank
When I was starting to “make it” in Network Marketing online, the company that I was building for 2 1/2 years shut down, it was around for 8 years, and I was just hitting the 4k per month mark, and finally getting back on my feet when that happened, I was devastated but not defeated.
I was following some Internet Marketing gurus at the time to learn Internet Marketing tactics that I applied at the time to my MLM business, but they always taught to use these tactics for Affiliate Marketing, but I was a rogue, and the tactics worked well at the time.
So after my company was shut down, I had to do something, so I started promoting Click Bank products.
I was getting good at ranking my YouTube videos on the first page and getting a first listing for the search terms I wanted to rank for, so I said to myself what the heck, lets try to apply my YouTube ranking strategy toward driving traffic to a ClickBank product sales page.
I was pounding out the videos, I came up with at least 20 to 30 search keywords that were related to someone looking to either buying that product, or looking for a remedy to their problem and the product was related.
So, after just 1 month, the sales started coming in!
I started making 2000 to 3500 per month off just that one product!
So the formula for selling on ClickBank for me at that time was:
- find a product on Click Bank that people needed a remedy for like, how to lose weight, or how to potty train your dog, or some kind of home remedy always works great.
- buy a domain name related to the product and make it not long or complicated.
- I made a simple script explaining to people that this is what I got, this is what its going to do for them, and this is how to get it, preferably on MS PowerPoint.
- then I load up my screen capture software, (I used www.camtasiastudio.org)
- then I record the screen while reading the slideshow and making a 1-3 minute video.
- then I edited the video by adding a watermark at the bottom of the screen with my URL, and also added my URL at the end of the video with a call to action.
Yup it was that simple.
I used that method for just under a year until YouTube changed their algorithm in the way they rank videos, and also it was very easy for a competitor to get your videos suspended.
I still use YouTube today, but not in a large scale that I did before.
Making Money With CPA Networks
First off, CPA stands for “Cost Per Action”.
Basically a potential customer will see the offer and they will either take no action and leave the page or they take some sort of action that pays you a commission.
Either they will enter a email or zip code, and the advertiser will pay you usually around $1 per every email, or zip code you get someone to submit.
This is one way CPA offers work, and this is the way I started out, I was making on average an extra couple hundred bucks per month.
The CPA Networks also has what is called “Trial Offers”, when I discovered how much they pay out for the customer to perform the action to just ‘TRY‘ the product, I thought I needed to try to market a couple of those type of offers, so that’s what I did.
I started marketing everything from weight loss, teeth whitening, to real estate training courses.
With this method, I was bringing home on average 10k per month.
But the way I was marketing the products were through videos, and through niche websites that ALWAYS had to be looked after and taken care of as far as any updates, plus applying more SEO to it when my ranking were dropping, plus kept having to tweak and test the call to action process.
It was great money, but I personally found that this method was like having a full time job.
Don’t get me wrong, I still love this method and still make money with it today, but the next method I will write about is where I have been concentrating my efforts and is much easier to maintain once you get it going.
Making Money With Network Marketing
I would say faster results, YES, better, NO.
Click Bank and CPA offers is a faster way to get money into your pocket in my experience, but when you grow a MLM Opportunity to a size where it maintains itself and grows on auto-pilot, some wonderful things start to happen.
You get more time freedom, you don’t have to worry about an advertiser shutting down the offer, you don’t have to worry about maintaining your blog or website, and here is the big one…
…you don’t have to do all the selling yourself!
So yes, it will take you and me longer to build to a substantial amount, but you have to remember, your leveraging the sales and profits from your team you build and its RESIDUAL!
Let Me Make One Thing Clear
I am an Internet Marketer, and so their is certain criteria I must have when promoting an MLM opportunity.
- it must be global, or operate or opened in many countries.
- it must have a good marketing system. (there are exceptions to this rule)
- it must have a good support structure.
- it must pay out good.
I don’t ask for much but my criteria usually rules out ALL of the traditional MLM Companies out there.
There are things that I do daily like blog, and send messages to my list to make money as well, but I wanted to touch on more of which programs I use and used to make money online from home with, rather than what I use as tools on this article.
Ill save that for another time.
I hope you enjoyed the short version of my journey with how to make money online from home.
The life of an Entrepreneur has many ups and downs, but I would not trade what I have now which is, being able to see my kids grow, or spending more quality time with my wife, or take breaks when I want to, or even take a vacation when we want to, I would NOT change this life for a crummy JOB any day!
