7 Surefire Ways to Profit Online

By MaryEllen Tribby

Can you write?

If so, then you can make big money online.

Now, I’m not talking about writing like Shakespeare, Steven King or James Paterson.

I’m not even talking about writing with such perfect grammar that your high school English teacher would smile from ear to ear.

Instead, I’m referring to your ability to use simple English to explain a simple process to your readers.

Not sure if you can do that?

Consider this: If you can give directions to a friend, co-workers, even your kids then you can write a “how to” article. And if you can write a “how to” article, then you can put money in your pocket.

Here are seven surefire ways you can turn your content into cash…

1. Create Your Own Products

One of the most profitable ways to make money with content is by creating and selling your own information products.

This includes reports, ebooks, home study courses and similar products.

Now here’s the key: You probably won’t become rich selling just one ebook. Instead, you’ll become wealthy by creating a sales funnel where you sell more products and more expensive products to your existing customers.

That means you might start by selling $7 reports to bring customers into your sales funnel, but after that you should be selling them $47 ebooks, $100 courses… and so on.

2. Write Articles to Promote Affiliate Offers

The problem with making money by creating your own products is that you’re solely in charge of all the customer service calls.

You’ll need to deal with cranky customers, you’ll need to issue refunds, and you’ll even have to absorb the costs of chargebacks.

The solution? Write articles to promote other people’s offers instead.

You can find digital affiliate products on sites like
Clickbank.com. If you prefer to sell physical products, look to sites like CJ.com.

Both of these sites will include the promotional materials you will need.

But introducing your list and other communities to synergistic content prior will skyrocket your response.

So, what do you do with these articles? Here are three ideas:

  • Post them on your website.
  • Submit them to article directories like Ezinearticles.com, GoArticles.com and ArticleAlley.com.
  • Upload them to social media sites like Squidoo.com and Facebook.com.

3. Become a Ghostwriter

If you’d rather sell your services, then you’ll want to consider becoming a ghostwriter who creates articles, products and content for other people. You can promote yourself by:

Join the WarriorForum.com and list your services under the “Warriors for Hire” section.

Plus you can join freelancing sites like Elance.com or GetAFreelancer.com.

Finally browse CraigsList.org and/or post your own ads.

4. Use Your Powers of Persuasion

If you have a knack for sales and persuasion, then you can make even more money (really good money 😉 by creating sales letters, ads and other sales materials for marketers (both online and offline).

In addition to advertising in the three ways mentioned above, you may consider approaching local business owners directly to offer your copywriting services.

5. Start a Membership Site

Instead of creating a series of related products to sell, you can create a membership site that you update with content daily, weekly or monthly (depending on your niche).

In essence, you’re creating an automatic sales funnel, since your customers will get rebilled every month.

That means you can spend more time creating content and less time chasing down new customers.

6. IMag Your Way to Profits

If you really enjoy writing, then creating an Inbox Magazine is for you. That’s because some of the most popular imags are those where the owner write on a regular schedule – for sure weekly, but in some cases more.

You can make money with your imag by:

  • Selling advertising space.
  • Offering your own products.
  • Selling affiliate products.
  • Leveraging your traffic to gain other opportunities, such as publicity or even a book deal.

7. Create a Profitable Autoresponder Course

Finally, you can make money by creating a multi-part ecourse that’s embedded with links to affiliate offers. Then you create a squeeze page to persuade people to join your ecourse and start driving traffic to this page.

Once you build your list, you’ll make money on autopilot… especially if you load up several months of evergreen messages!

You might write a 16-part weight loss ecourse that helps people lose 20 pounds. If you deliver these messages on a weekly basis, that’s four months of content. And each message gives you an opportunity to suggest additional solutions (such as weight loss supplements, exercise equipment, low-calorie recipe books and similar).

You just discovered seven proven ways to turn your content into cash online.
