How to Make Money with Dropshipping?

How to Make Money with Dropshipping

I had years of experience of trying out various ways to make money on the Internet. Drop shipping was one of them. Having tried it, I am here today to share my experience with you on How to Make Money with Dropshipping?

When I decided to do eCommerce, my first attempt was creating a private label product, and selling it with FBA (Fulfillment by Amazon). I soon discovered there were many disadvantages, and also a lot of hard work.

Then I learned drop shipping. It did saved some costs, and have some advantages over private label. But is it really a good way to make money online?

Today, in this article, I save you time, and share all that I have learned and experienced with drop shipping. I will list the advantages and disadvantages. I will also give my view on whether this is a good choice for making money online.


What is Dropshipping?

Drop shipping is when you sell products but you do not keep them in stock. When a customer orders an item from your eCommerce store, you get it from a manufacturer, a wholesaler or even another retailer.

The product is then shipped to your customer. The shipping is done with an agreed shipping service that you pay for.


What Are the Advantages of Dropshipping?

Drop shipping surely has advantages. That is why many people, including me, do this. Here are some of the benefits:

  • You Do Not Need To Produce Products
  • You Do Not Need Need To Stock Inventory – As such, the risks are lower
  • You Can Sell a Wide Variety of Products
  • You Do Not Need To Do Shipping
  • Your Fulfillment Cost Will Be Low

I will further expand on the above points in a future blog post. Please do join my I Love Passive Income Community to receive updates.


What Are the Disadvantages of Dropshipping?

After some time doing dropshipping, I soon discover that there are many disadvantages to this way of making money online.

  • You Need To Find Good and Quality Products
  • You Need to Find Good and Reliable Suppliers
  • You Need to Constantly Monitor Stock Availability with Supplier
  • You Need to Constantly Update the Website, especially when out of stock
  • You Need to Find Low Shipping Costs
  • You Need to Build Brand Equity – Spend a Lot on Advertising
  • Your Profits are Relatively Lower
  • There is Poorer Quality Control

I will further expand on the above points in a future blog post. Please do join my I Love Passive Income Community to receive updates.


How to Make Money From Dropshipping?

Now that you understand what is drop shipping, the advantages and disadvantages, let me share with you how to make money using drop shipping. The first thing you need to do is to choose a niche.

Choose a Niche

The first and most important step in making money from drop shipping is to find and choose a niche. It should be one that you are interested in. Better still, make it a niche on a topic or subject that you are passionate about. For example, I am very passionate about making money online. And hence, I created this website about creating passive income via the Internet.

The reason why it should be a niche or topic that you are passionate about is because if it is not, there can be a high chance that you will soon lose interest. And that can be detrimental to your business.

Not sure how to find and choose a niche? Here is a video from an expert with lots of online businesses making tons of money. Click on the image below to go to the site, and learn how to find your right niche.

Choose a Product

I have found this to be the tricky part of the process. It takes a lot of research and time to find the right product to sell.

You have to find one that is within your niche. A product that is in demand so that you can get sales. Also, a product that, after all the costs, can make a decent profit. After all, the time and effort for a product that makes $10 is the same as a product that makes $1000.

Product - Water Bottles
Product – Water Bottles

There is a lot to consider when choosing a product. First, of course, is whether there is a demand for this product? Will people buy? Preferably it is something that appeals to impulse buying.

Then it should be something that is not easily breakable. A product delivered in bad condition will only result in an unhappy customer. And of course, the dreaded refund.

Do Not Sell Breakable Products
Do Not Sell Breakable Products

Next, you must find a product that is of good quality. I have read so many reviews of products where people criticized the poor quality after they have received it. Do you think they will buy it again? And when other consumers read the review, do you think they will buy your product?

Most times, I have ended up choosing and selling a product with a lot of competitors. It is almost a necessary evil. A product that has low or no competitors can mean that there is no demand for it. So, naturally, you would find yourself choosing one that has high competition.

Know Your Competitors

So, with high competition, it is good to know who are your competitors. Find out how are they doing. In fact, you can find a product they are selling and sell something similar.

Know Your Competitors
Know Your Competitors

But do remember that this will mean that your product will be seen as the same as your competitors. As a result, it will be tough to market and sell it. On the upside, it is a product you know that many people are interested to buy. When there is high demand, there is a chance for you to get sales.

Some products are also sold by the big guys like Amazon. Watch out for such products. They will be very hard to sell. It would be very difficult to compete with Amazon. And it is worse if you are also selling on Amazon.

Find a Good and Reliable Supplier

When finding and choosing a supplier, be very careful and do your due diligence. Make all efforts to find a supplier who has good reputation and good record.

Most drop shipping business find suppliers from Aliexpress. And on Aliexpress there are many poor quality suppliers. Take your time to find a good and reliable one.

Also, be careful that some are not manufacturers. Some are resellers. This means that they get the products from manufacturers, and resell them to you. As such, they will charge a higher price than when you get direct from a manufacturer. Also, note that because they are not the manufacturer, they do not have control on stock supply, production lead time, and product quality.

Other things to look out for when choosing a supplier is the communication. Because many of the suppliers are from overseas, you need to make sure that you understand each other clearly. Also, look out for the speed of response. When the communication is not good or fast, move on and find another supplier.

When assessing a supplier, ask as many questions as possible to get all the facts you need. For example, ask about their production capabilities. Are they able to cope when your business grows and you need more products? Can they maintain the quality as the production and business scale?

Create Your eCommerce Store

You can do drop shipping on marketplaces like Amazon or eBay. But you will still need your own eCommerce Store. It is the best because your business will look more professional. It is good to have a website where people can see that you are a serious and legitimate business.

Ecommerce - Online Store
Ecommerce – Online Store

At the same time, they get to know of your brand and website. Having your own eCommerce store creates brand exposure and brand awareness. With a website, you get direct sales rather than on marketplaces where they get a cut. This means more profit for you.

You can choose to create your eCommerce store using Shopify or WooCommerce. Shopify simplifies the process. You can get your store up and running quickly. This is because Shopify has powerful technology and apps to handle the online sales and payment processes for you.

Online Visibility

Having a website is one thing. Being seen on the World Wide Web by Internet users is another. Just because you have a website is no guarantee that people will find it.

You will have to do digital marketing to get your store seen. For example, you need to do SEO (Search Engine Optimization) to get your website ranked on the first page of search results.

Digital Marketing Strategies
Digital Marketing Strategies

Being on the first page will get many people to click on your website. This drives traffic to your eCommerce store. And with high traffic volume, you get more people that you can convert into customers.

Another way of increasing online visibility is to do social media marketing. Social media is free, and is an excellent way to increase brand awareness and brand exposure. When people learn about your business on social media, they may visit your website. Again, this drives traffic to your website that can be converted into customers.

Build a List of Customers

Another strategy you have to do to make money with drop shipping is to do email marketing. On your eCommerce store, encourage people to join your mailing list. Build your customer base.

Then send emails to your list on a regular basis. Sell them your products. Build brand loyalty so that so that they come back and buy more stuff.

Engage and Build a Relationship with Your Customers

As with any business, your drop shipping business needs to engage and build a relationship with your customers. As mentioned above, one of the strategies is to do email marketing.

Another way of engaging and building this relationship is on social media. Social media is an excellent platform where you can hear first hand from your customers what they love or hate about your products.

For products they love, encourage these fans as brand advocates. For the haters, it is a good idea to find out what they do not like. It is an opportunity to improve your product. The improve product can open your business to a whole new market.

Analyze Your Data and Optimize

Another way to improve your business is to analyze your data, and optimize your business. Do this by using Google Analytics, Facebook Insights, Facebook Analytics, and many other tools to help you look at the data and metrics. Analyze them and learn from the data so as to optimize and grow your business.

Data Analytics
Data Analytics

One of the ways is to track your conversions. For example, using Google Analytics, you can know where customer is coming from. You can follow and find out what path they took to reach your site. Also, you can see where the sale occurred. With this information, you can repeat and scale it to get more sales.

Keep running and fine tuning your campaigns. Test, test, test. Do this to optimize your campaigns and spending. Ultimately, the goal is to get more sales.

Do Not Forget to Retarget

All eCommerce stores face a common problem. And that is abandoned carts. One of the solutions is to do retargeting to recover the sales.

For example, there is a cart abandoned on your store by a customer. The customer then goes to Facebook. Your retargeting efforts will show them the product they left in the cart in their newsfeed. The promoted post can ask them if they forgot to complete the purchase? Or it can be a message to encourage them to complete the sale.

Fulfill Orders Immediately

After you have done all the above, you finally get a sale! Congratulations! Now, you must fulfill the order.

One point to note – always fulfill the order immediately! Any delay can create a negative review or cause you to lose a valued customer.

So, you need to have the fulfillment process in place. When you get a sale, you must immediately go to your supplier and order from them. You will need to pay for the item. Arrange for the product to be sent to your customer. You will need to pay for shipping.

Then take note of the tracking number. Send an email to your customer to inform them that the order is on its way, and give the tracking number to them as proof.

Your sale is complete only after your customer receives the product. And there are no issues or complaints.


The Better Alternative – Affiliate Marketing

Why Affiliate Marketing is Better Than Dropshipping?

Some people enjoy the thrill of running an eCommerce store. They love the hard work of finding and choosing products. And they love to populate products on their website, and sell them online. And they get excited when customers purchase their products. All and good for them.

Some people, just like me, prefer less work and still make lots of money. And while it is not completely passive income (what is really?), affiliate marketing comes close to it. And I do this business model to make my fortune online.


What is Affiliate Marketing?

Initially, it is almost the same process as drop shipping. First, you find your niche. Then you find the product you would like to promote. Next, you find and become an affiliate of the supplier or manufacturer of the product.

You then get an affiliate link. Use this affiliate link to promote the product. It can be done on your website or social media. When people click on affiliate link, and make a purchase, you earn a commission.

Drop shipping definitely has many advantages to it. But there are also many disadvantages, too.

Compared to private label business, there is less work to be done. Also, less time spent, and less risks.

But ultimately, I still find nothing beats the affiliate marketing business model. With affiliate marketing, you do not need to deal with suppliers, fulfillment companies, or customers. All of which can cause a lot of stress.

All said, I do find drop shipping a good option for making money online. If you like to sell products, enjoy the admin work, thrill to the logistics, and find it fun to engage with customers, then this is a good choice for you.

If not. If you are like me. Someone who enjoys a more passive way of making money, then affiliate marketing is for you.

How to Make Money with Digital Products?

How to Make Money with Digital Products?

For years, I have thought of selling products and make money online. Then I heard of digital products. I am sure you are here because you heard of this business opportunity, too.

One of the first digital products that I considered to sell was eBooks. Many people have asked me to write eBooks. The reason was that they followed my blogs, and they enjoyed reading about the topics I wrote.

Since then, I have found out more about digital products, and have experienced with selling them online. Today, I will share with you what are digital products, what are the types of digital products, and How to Make Money with Digital Products?


What is a Digital Product?

A digital product is basically any product that you sell online. It has no physical form, and is intangible. Examples of digital products are an app, eBook, website, a blog, plugins, video, checklists, downloadable workbooks, printables, etc

Most digital products serve a purpose. It can be to provide information to the user, to be more productive in their work, assist to make a task easier, or even to learn about a topic. They are offered on the Internet in a digital format such as .pdf, .pub, .jpg, .gif, .tif, etc.

Sometimes they are referred to as electronic goods or e-goods. Digital products can be streamed or downloaded into an electronic device.


What Is the Difference Between a Physical Product and a Digital Product?

A digital product is intangible. This means that is has no physical form. You cannot hold it in your hands. A physical product is tangible. It has a physical form, and you can hold it in your hands. You can touch it, and hold it to look at it from different angles.

Smartphone with Digital Apps
Smartphone with Digital Apps

A physical product can be displayed at a physical store. Shoppers can visit the store and take a look at it. On the other hand, a digital product is listed on online stores. But we cannot see how it works until we try it or buy it. At the most, to help make informed decisions, we read the reviews about it.

A digital product can be downloaded or streamed into an electronic device such as a computer, smartphone, tablet, etc. Physical products take up physical space. We often have to find physical storage places to keep them.

One point to note is that digital products can be produced into physical products. For example, a digital book can be printed into a physical book. But because this product started as a digital product, it is still considered that.

Print eBook into Physical Book

Having said all the differences, I would like to highlight that marketing and advertising to promote a physical product is very different from a digital product. For example, a physical product can leverage on packaging to do a one last sales pitch to convince a consumer to buy the product. A digital product would have no packaging. So, it would rely on sales pitches done on landing pages, reviews, ratings, etc.


What Are the Best Digital Products to Sell Online?

There are so many types of digital products to sell online. It all depends on your niche and expertise. And even how creative you are.

eBook

If you are a good writer, and love writing, then consider creating an eBook on a topic you are an expert in or passionate about. I have written a few eBooks. Some of which I offer as free downloads at my websites.

eBook

Blog

As a writer, you can also produce blogs. Currently, this is my choice of digital product. This website is like a blog born of my passion to write about creating passive income, and making money online.

Other Digital Publications

You can also generate reports, write newsletters, create worksheets and checklists. These are just a few examples of digital products that you can create with your writing talent.

Digital Art and Printables

If you are a designer or artist, you can create digital art to sell online. Another popular digital design product are printables. These are pieces of artwork, graphic designs or drawings that people can download and print to enjoy.

Digital Photos

Along the lines of creative work, you can also sell digital copies of your photographs. This is a great side hustle for those who love photography, and have created some really nice photos. I have some of my digital photos sold on photography sites.

Online Courses

I have created a few online courses. And this is one of the best ways to make money with digital products. One thing to note is that it takes time and effort to create this form of digital goods.

“The global online education market is projected to witness a compound annual growth rate of 10.26% during the forecast period to reach a total market size of US$286.62 billion by 2023” – Business Wire

Digital Audio Products

Audio is getting more and more popular. People like to buy audio digital products because they can listen while they do other things. For example, I see many people on the train watching a video or listening to songs.

Some could be listening to an audio book, audio course or a podcast. These are also ideal digital stuff to sell. To create a digital audio product that sounds professional, you will need to get a quality microphone.

Get a Quality Microphone for Audio and Video Digital Products
Get a Quality Microphone for Audio and Video Digital Products

To edit the recording, you can use the free audio software called Audacity. I use this software when I edit audio for my digital audio products, and also the audio for my digital video products.

Here’s a tip – you can record a digital audio version of the eBook you wrote. Digital audio books are gaining popularity year on year.

Digital Videos

Digital videos can be on any topic. The videos with high perceived value are mostly presentations and courses. With a computer with high processing power and a quality microphone, you can create digital videos just like me.

Digital Videos
Digital Videos

Presentations are the easiest to do. You can create nice Powerpoint presentations. Then create a video by using a screen recording software to talk through the points.

Another way to create interesting videos would be to invite experts to discuss a certain topic, and interview them. The experts would be literally providing the content for you.

More Digital Products

This is not the entire list of digital products you can sell online and make money. There are apps, software, and so many more digital things you can create and sell. Just think about what you would like to produce for your niche. And let the ideas turn into a digital product.


How Do You Create a Digital Product?

Find your niche

Now that you know more about a digital product, and you are ready to create one, the first thing to do is to find your niche. Of course, you would choose to be in a profitable niche. After all, you will spend a lot of time and hard work to create that great looking and valuable digital product.

When I started my first online business, I found that it was a lot harder to choose the right niche. It is such an important decision that would decide if you fail or succeed in your business venture.

Fortunately, I found an awesome training platform that helped me with this. Click on the image below to go to the site, and learn how to find your right niche.

Find a Product or Service

Next, you will need to find a product or service. This is also not so easy. You need to find one that solves a problem for people.

Just ask yourself – What problem would your potential customers in your niche face? Why would they choose you to solve it for them? How would your solution change their lives for the better?

Another way to find a product or service is to look at your competitors, and find the most successful products. Model your product or service after them. Learn from them. After all, they have succeeded.

When you are new to the business, imitation is the best form of flattery. But be careful not to copy. Take note of copyright and patent matters.

You can also use forums to find out what people need. Find the forums related to your niche. Join them. Then read and learn from the people contributing to the forum. Better still, participate and learn, too.

Create the Digital Product

You can create the digital product on your own. For example, you can write an ebook, record a podcast, or produce a video. All on your own. You will need tools and equipment to help you.

All this will require a lot of time and hard work. An alternative would be to outsource the work. Get someone who is a professional to create the digital product. This will result in less time and effort on your part. But will cost you more money.

If you have the budget, it is a good idea to outsource. You can then focus on business strategy to grow the business. You can get talents from gig platforms like Upwork, Guru, iWriter or Fiverr.


How to Make Money with a Digital Product?

When your digital product is ready, you can sell it and make money online. One of the online places you can sell it would obviously be on your website. You can use Shopify to help you create an eCommerce store. Another option is EasyDigitalDownloads that is a plugin that creates a full-fledged eCommerce store on your website.

There are digital selling platforms that help you sell your digital product to the right customers. Gumroad is one of these platforms. And like Shopify, is easy to integrate into your website.

Alternatively, you can sell your digital product on online marketplaces such as Amazon, Etsy, e-junkie or eBay. A good fit would be to sell an eBook on Amazon. Also a good fit would be to sell your printables on Etsy.

ClickBank is a marketplace that is well known for selling and buying digital goods. It is perfect for reaching out to your customers. They have an affiliate marketing program to promote your digital products.

I love affiliate marketing because I find this is one of the best ways to really create passive income. Read on to find out more about how to sell digital products with affiliate marketing.


How to Sell Digital Products with Affiliate Marketing?

Selling your own digital product can be very satisfying, and rewarding, too. After all, you are the owner and you will earn 100% of the profits. But as you have read from above, it will take a lot of time and hard work.

For me, I prefer a way that is closer to passive income. And that is with affiliate marketing.

What is Affiliate Marketing?

Affiliate marketing is simply promoting a digital product or service for a business. And when there is a sale, you earn a commission.

How to Make Money with Digital Products? – Passive Online Revenue Final Word

Passive Online Revenue Logo

I have encountered many who start their online ventures with eCommerce business selling physical products. Even I have tried selling private label products that are in the physical form.

It is not easy. There are so many aspects of the business to attend to – quality check on manufacturer, coordinating with shipping companies, regular inventory check, fulfillment of orders, and customer service.

Is it any wonder that 20% of small businesses fail in their first year? 30% in their second year? And by the fifth year, 50% of them fail?

20% of small businesses fail in their 1st year. 30% fail in the 2nd year. And 50% by the 5th year.” – Bureau of Labor Statistics

Selling digital products incur less costs. This can lower the risks. As such, you can be more successful in this venture.

I still prefer affiliate marketing, and selling digital affiliate products. The costs are less. The time and effort spent is less, too. And the returns are high. Whether you are a new or experienced entrepreneur, I recommend that you consider affiliate marketing.

Be Successful with Your Business. Learn from the Best!

How to Make Money with ClickBank?

How To Make Money with ClickBank?

As an affiliate marketer, I would look for products or services to promote, and make money online. From the superb online training course I subscribe to, I learned about affiliate networks. One of the useful lessons I learned was How to Make Money with ClickBank?

In this article, I will share what I have learned; such as What is ClickBank? What is affiliate marketing? How to join ClickBank? And of course, How to Make Money with ClickBank?

What is ClickBank?

Essentially, ClickBank is an affiliate network. This means that it is home to thousands of products and services. All of which you can be an affiliate with.

Why is it Good to Join ClickBank?

As an affiliate marketer, I would look for products and services to sell. I would search on Google to find businesses that match my niche. Then I check if they have affiliate programs.

When I find a match and with affiliate program, I would write to them, and ask to be their affiliate. There is the whole process of proving I will be a good match for their business.

Many businesses would like to see that I have a good history of success with sales. I also promote via a website. As such, they would like to see that my website has high traffic. Upon approval, I get to promote their product or service. And get commissions when I make a sale.

It is very time consuming. And that is just for one product or service. Can you imagine me doing that for hundreds or even thousands of brands?

You Can Sell Products On Your Blog

As an affiliate network with thousands of products and services, ClickBank offers easier search and application processes. The ClickBank Marketplace is quite intuitive to help you find a product and service that matches your niche. And the approval process is also quite simple.


What is Affiliate Marketing?

I have often been asked this question. And here is how I explain what is affiliate marketing.

In the old days (and even today), before Internet existed, sales people would promote a product or service. They would do it from an office, at a showroom or travel about to meet people and promote it.

When they make a sale, the business that owns the product or service would pay them a percentage of the sale. This is the ‘cut’ or commission earned.

Online affiliate marketing works the same way. An affiliate promotes a business’ product or service on the Internet. They are given an affiliate link by the business that they can add to an article on a website or blog post, or promote on emails or online advertisements such as paid search ads or social media ads.

Similarly, when they make a sale, they get a commission from that business for the product or service that they promoted. This is a summary of what affiliate marketing is all about.

To learn more, go to my article where I wrote what affiliate marketing is all about.

Tip: Find products that are converting very well on ClickBank. These have GRAVIT of more than 20.

At the same time, do note that when the GRAVIT code is high, the competition is also high. Another point to note is that sometimes a low GRAVIT rating may not mean that there are no high conversions. It could be that it is a new product or it is in a niche that does not have high competition.

Get Affiliate Link

After you find the product or service, and you are an affiliate with the vendor, you get an affiliate link. Use this link to promote the product or service. When people click on the link and make a purchase, you get a commission.

Promote the Product

Next, you will need to promote the product or service. There are many ways to do this.

You can have a website or blog, and write about the product or service. This can be a review or just your thoughts about it. In that post or article, share the affiliate link. Encourage people to click on it and buy the product or service.

You can also do banner ads to promote the product or service. Add the affiliate link to the banner ad. When people click on it, they buy the product or service, you earn a commission.

Social media is a good place to promote, too. You can do it on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, or YouTube. But just a word of caution: some social network do not approve of affiliate links. So, do learn how to do it right so that you do not get your social media account suspended.

Today, this article is about How to Make Money with Clickbank? And my final word is that this is a viable way to make money online.

How to Make Money with Bitcoin?

How to Make Money with Bitcoin

Over a decade ago, when I was running a business, my business partners and I heard about Bitcoin. It was quite new back then, and we were wondering whether to buy some. Also, we wondered How to Make Money with Bitcoin?

Would it be an investment? Or would it be for transactions? Or to trade? Or all of these options? Eventually, the partners decided not to invest. So that was the end of that.

Today, I will share with you what is a bitcoin, what is a blockchain, how does the blockchain work, and all the different ways you can make money with Bitcoin.

If you like to find out all the various ways of making money online, including with a Bitcoin, check out my article about How to Make Money On The Internet?


What is Bitcoin?

A Bitcoin is digital currency. It is actually a computer file. It is stored in a digital wallet app.

People can send Bitcoins, or part of one, to that digital wallet. It is sent through the Internet. Transferred from person to person without going through a bank or clearing house.

To learn more about Bitcoin, watch the video below.

A Bitcoin is worth USD10,336.20.

Morningstar for Currency and Coinbase for Cryptocurrency,
February 12, 2020

When you get or send a Bitcoin, it is recorded in a public list called the blockchain.


What is Blockchain?

The blockchain is like a diary or spreadsheet where every transaction is recorded. It is a distributed database of these records. And they exist on multiple computers, all at the same time.

As the transactions increase, new sets of recordings are created. These are called blocks. Each block has a timestamp as proof of date and time of creation.

And each block is linked to the previous block. The blocks are all linked like a chain. This is why it is called a blockchain.

To learn more about blockchain, watch the video below.

Now that you and I know what is a blockchain, a bitcoin, and how they work, let us discuss how we can make money with Bitcoin.


How to Mine Bitcoin and Make Money?

The word – mining – sounds tough, doesn’t it? But bitcoin mining is actually about using a special software to solve math problems. When solved, the miner earns bitcoins.

Back in 2014, when my partners and I were considering whether to mine bitcoins, it was already not easy. In the early days, mining was easier, and miners could mine thousands of bitcoins. Lucky them!

Today, bitcoin mining has become even tougher. A miner would need to buy expensive hardware with powerful processing power. This is because the math problems are getting harder and more difficult.

Some miners team up to form mining pools. They work together to solve the transactions together. And together, when they succeed, they share the rewards.

To learn more about mining bitcoin, watch the video below.

Many are saying that bitcoin mining is not so profitable anymore. This is due to competition as well as the difficulty of solving the math problems. Also, the price of the bitcoin is a factor. At the current price, after you deduct the costs of mining, how much will you actually make?


How to Invest in Bitcoin and Make Money?

You can invest in bitcoin by buying or earning bitcoin. Then get a digital wallet and keep it there. Wait till the value goes up. When it reaches a value you are happy with, you can sell it.

Do make sure you get a digital wallet from a safe and reliable website.

To learn more about investing in bitcoin, watch the video below.


How to Make Money with Bitcoin Trading?

Do not confuse bitcoin trading with investing in bitcoin. Investing in bitcoin is long term. In this niche, the term is called ‘hodl’. Some say that this term came about due to a typo of the word ‘hold’. Some say, perhaps in jest, that it stands for ‘hold on for dear life’.

In contrast, bitcoin trading is short term. Traders rely on the volatility of the price, going up and down often, to buy low and sell high. They do this often to earn profits.

To do bitcoin trading, you need to have very good knowledge of this niche, and a good sense of the market. It is very risky. But has potential to make a lot of money. I do not recommend this method of making money with bitcoin unless you have the experience and extra money to try.

To learn more about bitcoin trading, watch the video below.


How to Make Money Getting Paid in Bitcoin?

Bitcoin is a form of currency. It is just in a digital format. It is getting more widely used as a form of payment for products and services.

If you are selling a product or providing a service, you might consider accepting bitcoin as a choice of payment. Many businesses are doing so already.

After you get the bitcoin, you can choose to hold as an investment or cash it in as quickly as possible. The reason for the latter is because the value can change a lot in a day. This can hurt your bottom line if the value drops a lot suddenly.

If you intend to accept bitcoin payment, there are many ways to do it. And there are many bitcoin payment services to help make this happen. Do a bit of research to find which is the best choice for you.


How to Make Money with Bitcoin Faucets?

There are websites where you can complete tasks, and get paid in bitcoin. Examples of tasks are such as looking at ads, and answering surveys.

So, if you have lots of free time, why not consider this? Frankly, you will not make a lot of money. But you can start earning bitcoin, get enough to start an investment.

To find out more about bitcoin faucets, watch the video below:


How to Make Money with Pay to Click (PTC) Websites?

The concept here is quite similar to the above bitcoin faucets. The difference is you click to watch an advertisement or click to pages that contain ads. After you do that, these websites will pay you in bitcoin.

This option requires a lot of hard work. In return, you get paid very little bitcoin. It can be as low as 0.00000100 Bitcoin.

Definitely not one of my recommended ways to make money with Bitcoin.


How to Make Money Writing About Bitcoin?

There is a lot of information on the Internet about bitcoin and topics related to bitcoin. But a lot of these articles are very generic or have been rehashed.

If you are familiar with this niche, and can write interesting articles that have unique content or view, you can make money writing for websites. You must be very knowledgeable on this topic. And to stand out from the others, you must have very good insights about this.


How to Make Money with Bitcoin Affiliates?

This is one of the best ways to make money with bitcoin. To be a bitcoin affiliate. Today, there are many bitcoin affiliate programs. Find a good one, and join them.

After you are an affiliate, you will be given an affiliate link. You can share this affiliate link on social media or your own website. When someone sees the link, and clicks on it, then makes a purchase, you earn a commission.

This is truly the closest way to create passive income.

How to Make Money from Amazon?

How to Make Money from Amazon?

In 2018, Amazon announced that they made $232.9 billion in revenue! Can you imagine having a small piece of that pie? Even at 0.01%, it is $23,290,000! With that kind of money making opportunity, you should really learn How to Make Money from Amazon?

Years ago, I knew I was attracted to this potential to earn millions. So, I searched for teachers, attended lessons, actively participated in workshops, and even tried a few ways to make money from Amazon.

Today, in this article, I save you time, and share all that I have learned and experienced. I will also give my view on whether this is a good choice for making money online. Plus, after years of experience, I found the best way to make money on the Internet. And I share it here with you.


What is Amazon?

Back in 1994, I was working at a web development company. And there was buzz about a new and small website where people can sell books. That was Amazon.

Today, Amazon is a marketplace where sellers can offer myriad products. In addition, the conglomerate owns Zappos, IMDB, Audible, Goodreads, and Twitch.tv , plus many other businesses. They even produce TV shows and movies. One of my favorite science fiction shows, The Expanse, is produced by Amazon.

Amazon is worth $1 trillion.

How to Make Money Publishing eBooks on Amazon?

I have been playing with the idea of writing a book, and self publishing. On Amazon, this is one of the ways to make money.

How to Make Money Publishing eBooks on Amazon?

If you have a topic you are passionate about, you can write about it. Then go to Amazon, self publish it. You can offer it in an eBook format. When consumers want a print copy, there is Amazon’s CreateSpace that can do that for you.

Every book that you sell on Amazon, they will take a cut. It can be anywhere from 35% to 70%. And it is not so simple as write and publish. Just like any brand, you have to promote your book. And that may cost you a lot of money.

In the past, writing and publishing books was lucrative. But today, with so much competition, it is not easy. Not impossible. But harder.

On the plus side, you do not have to worry about inventory.

Nevertheless, I still plan to do this. I have so many ideas for books. Plus I am a writer, too. But because it is harder to make money, and it make time a longer time to see profits, I intend to do this later.


What Does It Mean To Be A Seller on Amazon?

With my dreams to be an author shelved for the moment, I looked around to see how else I can use Amazon to make money? I am sure you have seen products listed on Amazon. These are listings created by sellers.

You Can Sell Products On Amazon
You Can Sell Products On Amazon

As I looked at the listings and products, I realized that I could be a seller, too. But I had no idea what to do and how to do it. I could learn online from Amazon, YouTube or online learning platforms like Udemy. But I decided to search local for a good teacher.

After some time, I found one who had and is still having success on Amazon. He was willing to impart his knowledge. After I attended his review session, I signed up and attended a few of his courses and workshops.

The first thing I learned was how to setup my Amazon account. Then I needed to find a product to list and sell on Amazon. This part was not easy. There are so many products on Amazon.

The teacher was very good. He helped his students to find a good product. In fact, he would take a look at our choices, and advise which would be the best product to sell.

After that, I had to source for a supplier for that product. This part was not easy too. It was almost a gamble. I had to find a good and reliable supplier. One that would supply the product in good condition and quality. A photo does not tell or assure how good the quality a product can be.

After I found a supplier, I had to consider many more aspects of my eCommerce venture. There was inventory; do I buy and keep stocks or do I do drop shipping? Do I create a private label, and how do I do it? Do I manage the shipping and fulfillment or do I get Amazon’s help with FBA (Fulfillment by Amazon)?

So many choices to make. I explain all the choices further in this article. For now, let me explain more about being a seller on Amazon.

Once I have the product, supplier and logistics worked out, I am now ready to list the product on Amazon. Once listed, the product is on Amazon, and offered to any consumer.

The Amazon Market is Huge!

The good news is Amazon gets over 2 billion visitors per day. That is a lot of potential customers. But your product have to stand out. And one way is to promote it to attract people to look at your product, and buy from you.

One thing you must be very careful about is to calculate your costs carefully. Make sure you add every cost into your accounting. Also, calculate how much you have to sell in order to make a decent profit.

Be mindful of your competitors. High competition can slow down sales. When the competition offers a lower price, this can bring your eCommerce dreams to a grinding halt.


What is Private Label?

From the Amazon course, I learned about private label brands. To create my private label brand, I have to decide on a product that I would like to sell. Then source for a supplier or manufacturer for that product.

Make Money with Private Label

I created a brand with brand name and logo. Then I had the manufacturer add my logo to the product. This was my private label and I sold the product on Amazon as part of my branded products.

Usually, the easiest route is to find pre-existing items. It would be too much effort to design a product, and get the manufacturer to create it for you. That would be costly. I do not recommend this unless you really have a new and unique product that is not in the market.

With a pre-existing item, there is also the concern that there will be many other products by other private label brands looking the same as yours. This is why it would be better if you can change the product a little to give it a unique selling point.

For example, if you are selling a particular design of a dog collar, and you see comments that ask for a specific color of that collar. For example, there is no rainbow colored dog collar for that design. Then you can work with the manufacturer to create the rainbow color version, and your product will have that difference.


What is Retail Arbitrage?

Another way to find products to sell on Amazon is to do retail arbitrage. It is a very simple concept. The idea is to buy a product from a retail outlet at a very low price, and sell it at a higher price on Amazon.

Make Money from Amazon with Retail Arbitrage

For example, you can check out the local hypermart such as Walmart. Especially look at the items that are on sale or clearance. Check on Amazon if there are these products on sale there. And what is the average selling price there.

If the buying price plus shipping is low, and you can make a decent profit, then that item is a good choice. There are apps that can help you compare prices easily. You just scan the item with the app, and it will show you how much it is being sold on Amazon.

This method of making money on Amazon takes up a lot of time and effort. You need to shop and search. You have to be careful and make sure the price is lower than the average selling price on Amazon. But I have known many people doing this and doing well. Some even make millions a year.

The plus side of retail arbitrage is that you do not have to deal with suppliers or manufacturers, shipping parties, and warehousing costs.


What is FBA (Fulfillment By Amazon)?

Fulfillment by Amazon or FBA is a service by Amazon. You can store your products at an Amazon warehouse. Then when a customer buys your product from Amazon, they will fulfill the order.

When you choose to use this service, Amazon will detect any sale of your product. Upon a sales order, they will get the product from their warehouse, package and label it, and bring it to your customer’s door step.

Here is a video about FBA:

I am someone who does not enjoy the fulfillment part of eCommerce. I was so happy for FBA. For my eCommerce business, I combined this with private labeling. After I had my manufacturer create my private label products, I had them shipped to Amazon.

Then I listed my product, promoted it. Any time I had a sales order, Amazon would handle the rest. I found this to be very time saving. Additional time that I used for other business efforts.

Note: Amazon charges a fee for this service. So, in order to make enough profits, you need to sell high volume.


What is An Amazon Affiliate?

I have said this many times and to many people – Affiliate marketing is one of the best ways to truly create passive income. And I still stand by this. As such, it is most fortunate that there is Amazon Affiliate program.

You apply to become an affiliate of Amazon. You get affiliate links for the different products on the marketplace. Then you use the links and promote the product. When people click on the affiliate link and make a purchase, you get a commission.

To promote the product, you can have a website and blog about it. Or you can share the link on social media such as Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube or Pinterest.

Awesome, isn’t it? I wrote about how to make money with affiliate marketing. Click here if you like to learn more about it.

The amount of commission you get depends on the product. It can be 1% to 10%. Also, you can get higher commission when you generate more clicks and purchases.

I truly recommend doing affiliate programs. If you are not sure what it is about, below is a free video training from a affiliate marketing veteran, Kyle, of more than 20 years experience. Click on the image below to watch and learn.

What is Mechanical Turk?

This is a marketplace where you can make money online doing easy tasks. The reason people get these jobs is because they will do work that computers cannot do. Amazon calls this – Human Intelligence Task.

Make Money from Amazon Mechanical Turk

Examples of these tasks are transcription, image recognition, data entry, etc. A research paper reported by The Atlantic claimed that the median hourly wage you can earn is about $2 an hour.

That is not a lot of money to be made. But given that the tasks are easy, it could be worthwhile if you have time to kill. You can spend that time for a bit of extra pocket money.

Personally, I have not tried this. And I don’t think I will. I love passive income. And as I mentioned above, I prefer doing affiliate marketing that creates that.


What is Amazon Handmade?

Have you ever heard of Etsy? Well, Amazon has a service that is the direct competitor of that platform.

Similar to Etsy, it is a marketplace for people who create handmade products. They sell stuff like jewelry, handicrafts, paintings, etc on Amazon Handmade.

Make Money from Amazon with Amazon Handmade

So if you are creative and love making handmade products, this can be an option for you. But do note that Amazon charges higher fees than Etsy.

While Etsy charges a 5% commission for each sale, Amazon charges a hefty 15%. To list an item on Etsy, you pay 20 cents. On Amazon it is $1.

Despite the higher costs, the advantage to Amazon is that they have a bigger audience. As such, you can sell more of your products. In the end, volume is how you can enjoy a profit. The question is – when you have volume, can you produce the product to keep up with the orders?

Again, another of Amazon money making options that I will not choose. I am not good at handicrafts. Trust me, I have tried. And the time and effort I take to make just one bracelet with small crystal beads does not justify the profits.


What is Amazon Merch?

Are you creative? Do you love designing and art? Then Merch by Amazon may be one of the ways you can make money online.

Make Money from Merch by Amazon

It is an on-demand t-shirt printing service. You create t-shirt designs and list them for free. That’s right. Absolutely free!

There are no upfront costs. When a consumer chooses your design, and orders a t-shirt, you get paid royalties.

Note: Sadly, Merch by Amazon is by invitation only.

But that may change in time. I will monitor the situation. As soon as it is open for all, I will share more about this in a blog post. So, do join my I Love Passive Income community to receive updates.

I will also keep on researching to find out how to be invited by Amazon for this. So, do join my community (mentioned above) to stay updated.


How to Make Money from Amazon? – Passive Online Revenue Final Word

Passive Online Revenue Logo

Amazon is an amazing platform. So many choices and chances to make money online. But ultimately, as you can see from my explanation above, I find that affiliate marketing is the best way to create passive income.

I am not saying that the other methods like private label, FBA, retail arbitrage or the few others are not good. It is just that they require more time and effort.

Also, you still need to deal with people. It could be suppliers, shippers, and customers. When dealing with people, there can be conflict. And that can cause lots of stress and headaches.

With affiliate marketing, I just write content for my websites. Add the affiliate links. And publish them. When a consumer clicks on the affiliate links and make a purchase, I enjoy a commission.

The advertiser handles the order fulfillment and any customer issues (if any). Now, isn’t that true passive income?

How to Make Money Online with an Affiliate Program?

How to Make Money Online with An Affiliate Program?

There are so many ways to make money on the Internet. To me, affiliate marketing is one of the best ways to do it. I find it to be a true way to generate passive income. Today, in this article, I will share with you How to Make Money with an Affiliate Program.

I will start with what affiliate marketing is all about, what are affiliate programs, how they work, how you can make money with the affiliate programs, and where is the best place to learn how to do affiliate marketing correctly.

Before we go into the details mentioned above, let me share with you why I chose affiliate marketing as my choice of online business. It is because of the following exciting news and trends.


What Are Some Exciting News and Trends of Affiliate Marketing?

When I was considering which was the best way to make money online, I discovered some exciting news and trends about affiliate marketing. First, there was rapid growth for affiliate marketing all through the 2010s.

Next, now that that we are in 2020, affiliate marketing is going to have continued high growth in the 2020s! Here’s what one of the experts say about this industry:

Affiliate marketing is globally estimated to be worth $12 billion.

Digital Information World, August 8, 2019

And the same source said that the global affiliate marketing spending is growing at a phenomenal rate of 27%! Don’t miss out the chance to get a slice of this huge pie!

It is clear. Affiliate marketing is here to stay. It is one of the most effective ways to earn an income. And you can when you capitalize on it by learning from the best how to do it right.

I learn from the best online training programs to do affiliate marketing the right way. As with any business, when you learn to do it right, you can be successful and earn from it. In the next section, I share a free video from that training platform to explain what affiliate marketing is all about.


What is Affiliate Marketing?

Over the past 10 years, ever since I made the decision to do online business, I have searched for the best way to make money online. After many attempts, such as eCommerce with Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA), drop shipping by Shopify, I have found affiliate marketing to be the best choice.

Then I spent another 5 years to search for the best affiliate marketing experts to learn from. I finally found them. And here is a video by one of the CEOs, Kyle, who has more than 15 years affiliate marketing experience.

In this free video, he explains what is affiliate marketing and how does it work? Click the image to watch the video now.

How Does Affiliate Marketing Work?

From the above video, you have learned about affiliate marketing and how does it work. Kindly allow me to elaborate further with an example of how affiliate marketing works.

I have a travel blog called Asia Travel Gems. On that blog I write about interesting places to visit, best places to enjoy good food in a city, and lovely hotels to stay at. As such, I am referred to as the affiliate or publisher.

How To Travel and Make Money
Asia Travel Gems, a travel blog with travel related affiliate programs

Along with the content on my travel blog, I have found products to promote. For example, when I write about a hotel and its services, I can add an affiliate link to the hotel or an online travel travel booking site. The hotel or travel site is known as the creator or vendor.

Finally, there is the consumer. A visitor arrives at my travel blog, and reads the articles, watches the videos, and enjoys the interesting photos I have taken. The visitor decides to book a hotel room using the affiliate link.

When this happens, and the sales is complete, I receive a commission. Do you see why I find this one of the true ways to create passive income?

You Can Blog and Make Money
Earn commissions with Affiliate Marketing

After I wrote the articles, it is on the Internet all the time; 24 hours and 7 days a week. The purchase by the consumer can happen at any time, without my active involvement; such as meeting the consumer or chat with the consumer to convince a sales.

Plus, I do not need to spend money and buy any product or service. I do not need to spend additional costs on storage space. I do not need to manage inventory or fulfill any orders. One of the best points I like very much is that I do not need to manage any customer concerns (if any).

Isn’t affiliate marketing awesome?


How to Get Started with Affiliate Marketing?

Five years ago, just like you, I wondered how to get started with affiliate marketing. By then, I knew roughly about affiliate marketing. But have no idea about how to choose the right niche, how to create a website, how to find the most suitable affiliate programs for my website, and how to monetize so as to make money online?

Thankfully, I found the best training program. The founders have over 15 years of affiliate marketing experience as well as many online businesses experience, too. And when you join this, you get online courses that teach you step by step how to do it all. That is, choosing the right niche, create your website for your online business, find the right affiliate programs that can help you make money online.

I have many people, including my students, who come to me, and tell me about their online business aspirations. They would be very excited as they talk about choices like eCommerce, Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA), drop shipping, and many other online business opportunities.

I always find out what is their ultimate goal? To be an online entrepreneur, and to be always busy managing their business and their customers?

Or to have a stream of passive income, and enjoy a life where they work not because they have to, but because they choose to?

Sure. I understand everyone has their comfort zone. I have a friend who never likes the idea of owning and running a business. He prefers to work for others. And I know of some who enjoys creating their own brand of products, sell it online, and be busy business people.

For me, I prefer to create passive income as much as possible. And I find affiliate marketing the best way to achieve that. So, here is the business opportunity again in the box below.

You Can Blog and Make Money

Sure, you can give it a go and try. But it is faster and much more easier when you have structured lessons to guide you, and a mentor you can turn to when in doubt.

Bonus! When you join the above program, I will be your mentor. I will guide you and help you to have a successful blog that makes money.

But I must be honest with you. A blog is not a get rich quick scheme. And it is not easy. There is a lot to learn. And it takes time. You know the old saying – Slow and steady wins the race? This is definitely true for blogging.

And when you do make the time and effort, you reap the rewards. So, you can do this! You can really make money with a blog.

And it is not just creating and publishing articles on the blog that will make money for you. It is what you do with the blog that will have you making lots of money on the Internet.


How to Make Money By Blogging?

So what can you do with your blog to make money? The opportunities are virtually endless.

Let me start by saying that when you have a blog, you have a place where you can sell your own products or sell other people’s products. For products, you can sell physical or digital ones.

Physical Products

Physical products are products that are tangible, which means you are able to touch them. I am sure you will realize now that there are tons of physical products in this world. And you can sell them on your website.

What you can sell are products like books or merchandise such as toys, clothing, health products, etc. You can write blog posts about these products and offer readers a link to click and buy them. They can be your own brand products or products sold by other businesses.

One way of selling other people’s products is to do dropshipping. With dropshipping, you simply write a blog about the product and promote it on your blog. When your readers click to buy the product, the supplier of that product will fulfill the order for you.

Digital Products

You can sell digital products on your blog with the same concept mentioned above for physical products. The only difference is that digital products are intangible products. This means that they are in digital format, and cannot be held physically.

Examples of digital products are eBooks, online courses, printables, apps, planners, software, photos, templates, plugins, themes, and more.

Similar to physical products, you can sell your own branded digital products or those sold by other businesses. You can also sell by doing dropshipping, too.

Advertising

Offering space on your blog is another way to earn income. You can go old school and offer ad spaces on your blog post. You can charge a fixed rate for brands to buy that advertising space.

Another way to earn from advertising is to work with advertising networks. These networks connect your blog to advertisers. You earn revenue for PPC (Pay Per Click) Ads and CPM (Cost Per 1,000 Impression) Ads. PPC is when readers click on the ad. CPM is when the ad is seen by your readers.

See the ads at the top and bottom of this article? These are ads from the advertising network I recommend below. I earn revenue from these ads.

You can also earn revenue by offering sponsored posts. These are posts paid by brands. For example, when a brand has a new product, and they hire you to write a review about it. You get paid when you agree, and publish the review on your blog.

Services

Blogs are a great way to showcase your expertise. And as a result, you gain authority, and become an expert in a subject matter.

As a result, you can offer your services on that skill as a freelancer or consultant. I have a blog where I write about digital marketing. As a result, I am seen as an expert in this topic, and I get offers to create websites or do digital marketing for businesses.

As a subject matter expert, you can offer training and coaching services, too. Online courses are also digital products that you can sell.

Other forms of services you can write about, and offer to readers are writing, copy writing, photography, graphic design, tech support, or even be a virtual assistant.

Affiliate Marketing

This is my favorite form of making money on the Internet. And that is because I find it to be truly the closest to creating passive income.

To be honest, most ways of making money online need you to continue spending time and effort. And most times even money.

For example, an eCommerce store doing dropshipping still requires you to source for good suppliers and products, monitor the shipping to make sure the sold product reaches the customer, and handle any issues such as lost shipping product, tracking of product during disputes, and any customer complaints.

With affiliate marketing, you simply write an article about a product or service. Add an affiliate link on that article. When a reader clicks on the link and buys the product, the supplier or brand will handle everything else. From shipping to tracking to managing customers.

With that one click, you get commission. Now, isn’t that real passive income?

Other Ways To Make Money from Your Blog

Besides the above methods to make money from your blog, there are numerous more ways to do it. Just to mention a few more, you can flip websites, host private forums or even create membership sites.

Flipping websites is exactly what it sounds like. I have known many blog owners who create a blog. Then they build it up. Grow huge traffic. And even make some money from it.

This captures the attention of entrepreneurs. And they offer a large sum of money to buy the blog from the owners. The owners make a healthy profit from this. And they repeat and rinse the process.

Private forums and membership sites are usually topic focused. And they attract people interested in the topic. To be a part of a private forum or to enter a membership only site, the consumer is willing to pay a monthly subscription.

So, this is quite good at generating regular income. It is best to host a forum on a topic that you are an expert in. The same is true for membership sites. As the owner of the site, it is better if you are the subject matter expert. This will give authority and credibility. As a result, people are more willing to sign up and pay.
