7 Most Popular Online Make Money From Home Models

Sep 3, 2007
People are tired of being broke!

With all that money out there in the world, how do you "get some"? Here are 7 of the most popular ways to make money from home online:

1. Your own Information Product
Selling your own information products has got to be one of the best ideas because you have control over the price, product, and the quality. When you make sales for your own product, you collect more cash. There is also more versatility to the ways you can market your product...And the most important factor of all: the power of leverage having your own product gives you.

For instance, if you have your own product, you can also have other people sell your products for you as an affiliate. This immediately cuts your advertising cost, allows you to reach a larger audience quicker, and helps you make money on autopilot. Leverage is key in any great success in business.

* Tips to selling you own product: Have great sales copy, capture the contact information of site visitors, and follow up with interested prospects and customers.

2. License or Resell
This is the next best thing to creating your own product. You still have all the benefits of having your own product, except you don't have to create it. You can be in business within a even a few minutes or hours.

Using this model will save you time, and allow you to test a market before creating your own product.

3. Becoming an Affiliate Marketer
This is the fastest and easiest model of all. Why? You only have one real job after finding a hot selling product - send traffic to your affiliate site through your affiliate link.

Life is so much easier, and more successful, when you only have to focus on one thing. When people click your affiliate link and purchase from the website, you collect a preset commission. Best of all, it's free to sign-up with affiliate programs.

You will lose the control over the sales process, but it's a small price to pay to get into business today and start making money, almost immediately, with no upfront cost.

4. Selling Virtual Real Estate (VRE)
Finally, a way to make money from your content sites and never have to sell anything. With VRE you will make money by either pay per click programs (Adsense, YPN) or by allowing text link advertising on your site. With pay per click programs, you get paid every time a visitor clicks on an ad on your site. With text links, you get paid for letting an advertiser put a text link on your page for a specified period of time, usually per month.

This is great passive income. As you increase traffic to your sites and the popularity of your site, you will increase your income over time. A major advantage of VREs is you can make longer term profits, which continue to grow everyday.

5. Sell Advertising On Your Web Space
If you have a website or blog with high traffic, one of the most profitable ways to make money from it is to sell advertising space.

How? Just sell ads for 30 day blocks to prospective buyers. You can use a broker to sell your ad space, then most of this will be on autopilot. You can sell banner ads, classified ads or text link ads.

6. Forum marketing
Think of a topic that you love. If I were to strike up a conversation about that subject, would you discuss it with me. Of course you would. People love to talk about the things that they are passionate about. This is so in forums as well - like-minded people hanging out and talking about what they love. Forums/Groups/Blogs (all the same to me for this purpose) can be extremely lucrative when you drop some bait that they want to bite on.

What is bait? Bait is a link to a site, product, or service that solves a problem that the members are having and you can make money on, if people buy.

7. Sell eZine Advertising
Advertisers are always wanting and needed to find good related targeted ezines (online magazines) to advertise in. You can sell display ads, classified ads, and top sponsor ads. Then, just send your ezine out once a week, twice a month, or once a month.

If this sounds good to you, then start building a big targeted list of responsive subscribers. Try to get your subscribers to make a small purchase. A purchase of at least $1.97-$9.97. This will help you to demand a higher price for advertising in your ezine because you now also have a proven list of buyers, not just "freebie seekers".

A quick way to get started is by using co-registration leads with Listopt, the only ones I use. Make sure to put in an immediate follow-up via auto-responder.

Now you've got the ideas. Pick one, and go out and get more information on that one subject. Become great at that model of making money from home, then if you wish, add another.

To your immediate and lasting success!
