5 of The Best High ROI Online Businesses You Can Start In 2020

Plus How You Can Start Even If You Have No Money Today

Now I want to make something very clear, many of you will rush in to read this article because you think it’s your ticket to making millions next month.

While it is possible you can make millions from the business models I am about sharing with you, they are in no way get rich quick schemes.

What I am trying to say here is that you must but in the adequate work.

So if you want a million naira from the businesses, you must put in the amount of work that can generate such figures for you.

If you’re looking for ways to make millions in 2 days or you’re in the MMM group, then I am afraid, this isn’t for you.

There are a whole lot of such schemes being peddled on the internet and good luck with them by the way.

Still here?

Then you must be up for the ride. But first let me tell you a story.

In 2012 during my 300L in Delta State University, I had a room-mate who was also interested in the whole online business thing.

He will go out and come back with a discovery of a new online business. But I wouldn’t pay so much attention.

And then it was one cold evening when I heard him calling my name from the door.

Joe, this will blow your mind away.

 And I was like what is it again.Designing book covers on fiverr.

Prio to that day, I had heard of fiverr and even tried providing SEO and traffic generation services but had to quit because I was receiving so many negative reviews from buyers lol.

The following year (2013), I came across a course on how to design book covers and offer the service on fiverr.

The course was selling for N10,000 and at that time, that was exactly my pocket money.

I remember being so confident that this would work, so I started consuming the videos in the course and had gone ahead to create an account on fiverr with the name “uniquedesignxx”.

Just try googling that name to see what comes up lol.

My first 3 months on fiverr, I had made only $80.

Now for most people, it was time to quit because comeon, $80 in 3 whole months?

Well, that wasn’t me.

I kept on it, honing my skills, promoting my gig, anything to make it succeed.

I was consistent.And on my 6th month, I had added even logo design and that month, I made over $1000.

From that month, I continued generating funds through fiverr designing book covers and logos.

And guess what?

My first million naira was made offering services on fiverr.

So, why did I share this story?

To keep you in the know ahead of time that you’ll encounter difficulties regardless of the business model you choose to go with.

But what will separate you from the unsuccessful ones is consistency and a mentor (A mentor is someone who has done and gone through what you’re trying to do).

This brings me to the first business model you can start in 2020;

#1: FREELANCING

This is basically the act of you offering a service and getting paid for it.

This is actually very interesting because you can be here in Nigeria and offer your services to someone in the United States.

The good thing about this is that you can start with arbitrage. Which simply means you get clients for a certain job and you find someone with adequate skills to handle the jobs.

You can start with arbitrage if you think you have no skills to sell. However, I will advise you learn a skill.

Becoming good at something only requires repetition as they say “repetition is the mother of skill”.

Below are a few sites where you can sell your services;

  • Fiverr.com
  • Upwork.com
  • Freelancer.com
  • SEOclerk.com
  • Iwriter.com

Note: You don’t even need money to start this. All you need is a device with an internet connection and the necessary skill

Below are some skills that are high in demand;

  • Graphic Design
  • Web Design and Development
  • Social Media Marketing
  • SEO 
  • Ecommerce Marketing
  • Copywriting
  • Email Marketing
  • Article Writing
  • Video Animation
  • Voice Over
  • Apps and Software Development

Below is what is possible with freelancing;

The screenshot above is from one of my fiverr accounts.

PS: I no longer manage it personally.

#2 ECOMMERCE

Commerce has been here for long (almost as old as mankind) and the introduction of the internet making it possible to transact online with people regardless of their race or location was the birth of e-commerce.

And, e-commerce is basically the selling or exchange happening on the internet.

So you have a product people need, you simply set up a sales system and get people to find it online via marketing and when they do, they order for it so you get it delivered to them.

In other words, e-commerce is electronic commerce.

The history of e-commerce is unthinkable without Amazon and Ebay which were among the first Internet companies to allow electronic transactions.

Thanks to their founders we now have a handsome e-commerce sector and enjoy the buying and selling advantages of the Internet.

Currently there are 3 largest and most famous worldwide Internet retailers:

Amazon, Ebay and Alibaba.

E-commerce is growing so fast that In 2017 it reached around $2.3 trillion and is expected to hit $4.5 trillion in 2021 (according to a Statista report).

And in Nigeria alone the current eCommerce spending in Nigeria is estimated at $12 billion, and is projected to reach $75 billion in revenues per annum by 2025.

While e-commerce is still growing, there’s no better time to start and dominate your own space.

This is a business model where it is possible to have a profit of over 1000% on a single product.

Imagine buying a product for as low as N1,500 and selling it for N15,000. I.E 1000% profit and that my friend is incredible!

Starting an e-commerce business might appear complex and cumbersome but with the necessary training and guidance the journey becomes simplified.

To run a successful e-commerce business, here are few keynotes;

  1. You must understand your market and calve out a section for yourself before thinking about a product to sell
  2. Don’t be so money focused that you lose sight of building a business (Think long term)
  3. Build a team (From sales to delivery)
  4. Never stop marketing and learning

When I look at the eCommerce marketplace today I see three problems that are widespread and putting most e-commerce entrepreneurs on life support.

1). Importing a product because it looks cool (this one is like a disease lol)

2). They don’t know how to advertise and sell

3. Not Paying attention to numbers

The truth is that if you are making just one of these mistakes your mini importation business probably won’t be around by this time next year.

That’s why I have created a FREE training that shows you everything you wanted to know about e-commerce and were afraid to ask

Here's what you'll discover:

1. How to find a hungry market

2. How to Find and import products for your market

3. How to pass your message to your market and not have to beg them to buy your products

Heck, I’ll even show you the only 3 categories of e-commerce products you should be buying that ensures you quickly sell out.

Check out the training here

#3 INFORMATION MARKETING

I so love this one in the sense that you can start with little to no capital and you don’t even have to be an expert at something before marketing it.

Jonathan has started again you say?

Just relax let me explain.

You see, people are constantly searching online for information that either expands their skills or solves a problem.

YOU can provide that information in the form of digital information products.

Marketing and selling information products can help you start earning lots of money while helping others in a big way.

And even if you’re no expert at what they are looking for, you can partner with someone who can provide the answer/solution and package it into an information product.

Have you ever purchased an ebook or a video training course online?

Have you purchased a book from book stores or from stand still Lagos Traffic?

Those are examples of information products.

For example, you were able to help some of your friends relocate to canada or get permanent residency in Dubai.

You can document the process and package it in form of a video series or pdf.

Once you create these informational products, you would then market and sell the products to people who want to know how to relocate to Canada or get a permanent residency in Dubai

With information marketing, you get to make money by selling information created by you!

Side Note: Most Pastors are also doing this. The likes of Chris Oyakhilome and David Oyedepo. 

Maybe your daddy G.O is too *wink*

These days, with everyone looking to the Internet to solve a variety of problems, selling informational products online is one method to satisfy the demand.

And guess what?

It's about to get interesting.

Just keep reading.

What if I told you that, you don't even have to create the information yourself before you can start selling information products online?

You don't have to bother or go through the headaches of researching what people want or spending hours putting together a report or even worrying about how to satisfy customers?

What? Jonathan are you serious?

Yes! with 100% certainty.

All you have to do is find someone who have created what people want and market it yourself for a certain percentage commission.

It could be 30%, 50%, 70% and this bring me to the next business model.

PS: I will be creating a video training that breaks down the 3 steps you need to take to create an information marketing business that will continue to generate you income monthly, even if you're just starting online.

#4 AFFILIATE MARKETING

The image you see above is my affiliate earnings and this was made possible because of an online platform

called EXPERTNAIRE.

Expertnaire is an online platform that allows Experts(those with quality information, knowledge and expertise) to list and sell their products on their marketplace.

And other people who want to make some money can help them sell those products and smile to the bank.

Let me explain better.

I consider myself to be someone who is an expert at creating valuable knowledge products (books, videos,courses etc) Over the years, I have created knowledge products and sold tons of them on different areas like:

  • Dating
  • Business and Make Money
  • Sex
  • Etc

I have also taught a lot of people how to do the same.

There is no doubt that one of the surest ways to build an online business and make a lot of money is by creating and selling products that share valuable information in formats like e-books, videos etc.

But the truth is this:

At the end of the day, most people can't create their own high demand knowledge products to sell for various reasons.

E.g. Some just don't get it regardless of how easy I try to make it.

Some just don't have the time because of their job and other life issues.  

Some just have other unexplainable reasons.

This is not only in Nigeria.

It happens to people all over the world.

So, someone (I actually don't know who started this but that person must be one brilliant son or daughter of a mother) came up with this concept where you can sell another person's product online and get a part of the commission.

In many cases, you can even use the same marketing materials that person created to sell the product and get paid (how interesting).

That is how the Clickbank marketplace was launched back in the day.

On Clickbank, there are 2 groups of people.

The first group are known as merchants.

These are people who are able to create high value products (digital) and list them on the Clickbank marketplace along with the marketing material to sell them.

The second group are the affiliates who simply sign up on Clickbank and what they do is to pick any product from the Clickbank marketplace.

For each product, there is something called an affiliate link attached to it.

It usually looks like this:

https://merchantwebsite.com/affiliatecode

All the affiliate has to do is to find people who are most likely going to be interested in that product and recommend the product to them through his affiliate link so that they can buy through the link.

So let's say a merchant lists a product about "dog training" and let's say the product sells for $40.

The merchant can now set an affiliate commission for the product.

Let's say 50% which is most common.

What this means is, if an affiliate makes a sale of the product (via his affiliate link), he gets paid 50% of that $40 which is $20.

Are you following me here?

Good.

Unfortunately, Clickbank blocked out Nigerians probably because we are known around the world as potential fraudsters.

Whatever was the reason, many Nigerians still find a way to register on Clickbank though but most of them (about 99.9%) don't make any money because they don't know how to market and because they are competing with other well trained and experienced affiliates from all over the world.

I actually told you all this long story to help you understand the concept of selling other people's digital products.

So, Let's Go Back to Expertnaire.

On Expertnaire, Nigerians with quality knowledge based digital products can list them along with marketing materials that makes selling them easier for affiliates.

Then affiliates can sign up to the Expertnaire platform,pick one or more products to market and use the affiliate links of each product to market them.

When someone buys the product via the affiliates’ link, the affiliate will get a commission for that product.

Now that you understand how this works, let me explain how you can become an affiliate of Expertnaire.com

Go  Here

Fill the form and click Register (you should read the terms and conditions too though)

Once you click REGISTER, the system will show you a popup notification informing you that the fee for becoming an affiliate on Expertnaire is N10,000 a year.

Just click the Yes, Continue button to move on.

Or click cancel if you are not willing to pay the fee.

If you follow through with the registration, you will be able to access all the products you can promote.

Let's say you are promoting a mainstream product (a mainstream product is a product that appeals to a mass audience - E.g. Weight loss, making money etc)

Then let's say you have about 2000 people on your FB friends list who are at least 28 years upwards.

Next, let's say you make a post on your FB wall where you are simply recommending an article on the product for others to go and read:

If you have at least 2000 active people on your

FB/Instagram/Whatsapp friends list who are between ages 28-45, many of them will read the article, click on the affiliate link there and many will buy immediately.

Just imagine promoting a product like 10X ecommerce blueprint and for every person who joins the program you get 50% commission (N12,500).

If you can get just 20 persons from your friends list monthly that will be an extra N250,000 for you.

But then, while this can make you some money fast, it is not a business strategy that can be ongoing.

And usually, the money you make from here might not really be much because it is all about leveraging the contacts you have already.

There are even better strategies to doing this.

You can download a free report on it here or watch a free video training by clicking here

PS: You can also decide to be an affiliate to companies like Konga and Jumia and sell their products for commissions.

#5 CONSULTATION

The consulting business is the next level information marketing if rightly packaged can continue to generate you money till you die.

It's basically offering advice based on your expertise to a specific group of people. So, you have to be an expert at something to do this. 

A consultant's job is to consult. Nothing more, nothing less. It's that simple. There's no magic formula or secret that makes one consultant more successful than another one.

But what separates a good consultant from a bad consultant is the passion and drive for excellence.

And oh yes a good consultant should be knowledgeable about the subject he or she is consulting in.

That does make a difference.

You see, in this day and age, anyone can be a consultant. All you need to discover is what your particular gift is. 

For example, are you very comfortable working around computers?

Do you keep up with the latest software and hardware information, which seems to be changing almost daily? 

And are you able to take that knowledge you have gained and turn it into a resource that someone would be willing to pay money for?

Then you would have no trouble working as a computer consultant.

Now, don't get the wrong picture here.

This is not about getting a fancy office and employing a thousand staffs.

You can do this from the comfort of your home and make 6-7 figures monthly and consistently.

That's it, guys.

I hope you enjoyed it.

But most importantly, take action because without taking action there will still be no change and you'd remain in same position.

make money video marketing

video marketing: make money creating video animations

The fact is, video marketing is a vital component if you want to increase the sales of your products and services online. As you read on I’ll introduce you to the best video maker. The marketing space is undergoing a shift and to keep up, you must follow the trend.

Now, people are more likely to watch videos than reading. If you want to increase your engagement with potential customers/clients, video marketing is the right path to follow.

With videos, you’re sure to increase your click through rates 100 times better than before.

How do you start creating your videos?

There are numerous software on the internet but viddyoze is just an exception as it takes just seconds as opposed to a full day of work to create your video animations.

Now you no longer have to bother yourself about learning how to do this. With viddyoze you will be just a few clicks away from creating your videos.

This is probably the best video app ever released and talking popularity? This app is definitely one and the best video maker out there

Video animation is the future of video marketing and with viddyoze you get to see big advancement in animations. We have been limited to the use of digital animations until now. (You know the kind – swirls of smoke or flashing lights that turn into a logo, that kind of thing).

Now, don’t get me wrong there’s nothing wrong with the swirls and the flashing lights. I’ve used them a lot for my products and clients, they make your videos look hot.

But…

They don’t stand out as much as before because almost everyone uses them.

Once, it was about getting ahead.

Now, using digital animation means you’re keeping up. But you don’t stand out from the crowd.

That’s why Viddyoze Live is so exciting. Because for the very first time, you can have your logo rendered into a live scene.

Moving perfectly as if it’s there in that 3D space. The effect is unlike ANYTHING ever seen before.

Your logo on a t-shirt, on a coffee cup, on the bottom of a swimming pool. This is why I consider it the best video maker!

The first time I saw it, I was floored.

The second time, I was like… how do they even do that?

watch this…

(And when you can give your viewers a reaction like that, it’s not hard to turn it into loads of money) This is super impressive animation app.

One other thing is, the team behind Viddyoze are showing you exactly how they get their audio made.

Because audio is one of the most important parts of how a video is received.  Possibly the most important part.

And the fact that everyone else would buy some royalty free audio and overlap

This is not the case for Viddyoze.

They hired Grammy-nominated producer ill Factor to create custom tracks.

This guy’s worked with Justin Timberlake, Jay-Z, and Timbaland… and you’ll be hearing his work on the Viddyoze teaser as well.

You probably might have heard of viddyoze. They revolutionized video animation.

Since their first version launched a couple of years ago. I have created a lot of successful businesses using their app and also helped many of my clients.

Viddyoze made slick, sellable video production available to everyone in the video marketing space.

Millions of services for as little as $5 Visit Now!

But this time, they’ve really outdone themselves.Taking things to a whole new level.

Letting you create animations blended with live action footage.

This goes far beyond what even AfterEffects can do.

And the awesome part is when your video rocks out with an intro like the ones you can create with viddyoze, jaws are going to drop.

Your products will look incredible, and your clients will watch your first video and come back for even more.

And your videos will be the ones everyone will be talking about.

Viddyoze Live is going to be a subscription, but you can get access NOW for a one time investment.

Wondering where to sell video marketing services?

Video animation is a very lucrative service you can start providing today and with viddyoze, you get to provide your clients with exciting and exclusive video animations.

Here are a few platforms to start selling this service;

  • Udemy
  • Upwork
  • Fiverr
  • Skillshare
  • Envato
  • Freelancer
  • Peopleperhour
  • Youtube

If You purchase viddyoze, here are bonuses you’ll have access to

Cash for building apps

Cash For Apps: How To Make Money Building Apps Without Coding Knowledge

I know you might be wondering if it is even possible to develop an app without having the knowledge of coding. Yes, it is possible! But before we dive deep into cash for apps, I want to talk about how you can increase your chances of developing successful apps.

Do Your Own Research

Before thinking about developing an app. You must first conduct a research to ascertain if there are people who will make use of your app. If you skip this, you might just end up wasting your time and resources. I need you to understand how important this is if you want cash for apps you develop.

When you’ve concluded on what the market want, you move on to;

Build a Paid and a Free Version of your app

I want you to take this seriously. Make sure you have a paid version of your app where you upload exclusive contents. This is where you have the updated contents found in the free version. I’m not saying you should go ahead and develop or build a crappy app or not to have quality contents in the free version of the app. The goal here is to attract users to start using your app. This is to get them to know about the app and its contents with the hopes that they upgrade to the premium version of your app. They will do this either to reward whoever is behind the app or just to gain access to the exclusive contents and features. This can only happen if the contents in the free version added value to their lives.

This doesn’t mean you can’t get the cash for apps on the free version. All you need do is run ads on these free version and only offer an ad free app on the paid version.

Users Contents must be unique

If you have been following, you’ll understand that you can’t get the cash for apps if it doesn’t add value to your users. The reason why you must have a thorough research on your target market as this would help you carve contents tailored to them and that would benefit them. Because the contents that you create is the real app and not the framework design.

Build more than one app

With the cash for apps goal in mind, you need to build more than one app is this is how you make lots of money. As you get to earn from every app built. The Little money can easily add up to become huge sum. You can do this by taking advantage of easily building apps without coding skills using MobiMatic.

One way to determine an idea to focus on is to build many apps. My point here is you need to continue trying until you eventually find an idea that works. Your chances of success increase with more apps you make/build.

Hold on there! Before you think of running off and spamming the market with your apps, keep in mind there is a host of app out. Hence, it is important you put some thought and effort into what you want to build so it stands out and gets noticed. As your reputation plays a great part in your career as a developer of apps.

You should also take to note that maintaining apps and making them bug-free takes effort.  Although most apps would eventually be retired, you would want to keep them updated from time to time some your chances for cash for apps increases. Because updating your app with new contents is how you keep your users.

Link Apps Using free apps

What I mean here is promoting your apps on your free apps using direct links. This would be more effective if the promotional app is related to the promoted app.

You can use house ads. You get to control ads shown on your apps. A good advertising network to use is AdMob.

Have your apps on the Google play store as users will get to see apps from the same developer. Google play has a section that shows more apps from a developer. This is a very good way to get your apps discovered as it serves as an automatic filter to discovering your apps by anyone who browses one of your apps.

Always update your apps

Keeping your apps fresh with new features and contents is important if you want to keep your existing users. Always updating your apps will give your app a bump in the eyes of the user.

Monitoring your reviews from users will help you know what is working and what is not and how to fix. This is a great way to what next feature to add to your app. The aspect is speedy update you can easily achieve with MobiMatic.

Freelancing to have cash for apps

There are lots of businesses out there in search of app developers. Mobimatic has made it so easy that you don’t even need to know coding to build apps. You can make as much as $1000 monthly building mobile apps for small and large businesses. Freelancing is one of the make money online strategies and a great way to start making quick bucks building apps

About Mobimatic

Mobimatic is a revolutionary software that can help you to create your own app in few steps. You simply drag and drop. How simple can that be?

It doesn’t matter what niche you wish to build an app for, MobiMatic covers it, from e-learning to business apps.

Conclusion

Focusing and refining your monetization strategies is important to achieving your business goals and giving to your users exactly what they want. You don’t want to have ads on your apps if they are meant for your brand. Just having the app can make you loads of money by simply expanding ways your customers can easily reach and interact with your business.  Be sure to keep track of your data to ensure your returns matches your investment. Once you have enough data, you innovate. Don’t be limited, try new things, test, test, and test based on your results to find the best monetization strategy for your users and business.

using microphone for voice overs

Voice Over Jobs : How To Make Money From Voice Overs

[dropcap]Seeking[/dropcap] voice over jobs? My dear friend I want to assure you that you don’t need weeks or even months to get ahead in the voice over industry. The only way to make what you want to be a reality is to have a plan. As you might have known, there are basic essentials skills needed of every voice-over actor;

  • Artistic abilities
  • Technical expertise
  • Business skills

While the first comes naturally most times, the second needs a dedication to learning how to record your voice as a marketable product and the third you must not overlook. It’s a business and has to be treated as such no matter how small you’re starting.

This is no small industry, I am not saying that to scare you. A lot will be required of you as an actor. Even with its demands, you still get to have lots of fun and make a lot of money.

So How do you get started?

We have mentioned that the first skill needed is your artistic skills and for you to excel you must hone those acting skills of yours. You must not be Brad Pitt to get on camera and do a voice over. The emotion behind your voice is very important. More reason you have to invest in yourself. Remember when talent doesn’t work hard, hard work beats talent.

Here are some steps to prepare yourself;

  • Invest in lessons
  • Take online classes
  • Listen to other voice actors voice123 is a great place to start
  • Go to VoiceBunny.com and start listening to other voice actors.  Use the search feature to put in the keywords and parameters that you think match your voice. Find some demos you like and some that you don’t. Figure out what it is that makes you like or dislike a demo. Also, sort by “popular” so you can hear what clients are finding the most interesting.
  • Set up a home studio: There are a lot of forums, blog posts on the best equipment for a home studio. However, I will advise you start small. Few things you’ll need

voice over jobs

  • A quite space
  • Sound proofing materials
  • Microphone
  • XRL cable
  • Mixer
  • Firewire Cable
  • Computer
  • Recording software

I will recommend Adobe Audition: This is one powerful tool that will allow you get into some serious audio auditioning (from producing commercials with music beds to adding sound effects and even more) Yet still very easy and simple to make use of.

Other programs include;

  • Audacity: This is free and very simple to use
  • Twisted Wave: an easy audio editor
  • ProTools: This is quite expensive but it’s the most robust program on this list.
  • Just try to use one that works best for you.

Where do you start getting voice over jobs once you’ve gotten yourself ready?

  1. Fiverr: Fiverr is a great place to start receiving voice over jobs and start earning. In case you not familiar with Fiverr. It’s a marketplace to market creative services (from graphic design to video editing to article writing to voice overs) starting at $5. Fiverr is grown so large that a lot of persons find themselves there to get their jobs down. I would encourage you to sign up for an account because unlike membership sites, it is free to get started. $5 is just a starting price so you don’t have to allow that scare you as you can earn as much as $1000/voice over job.  However, for each job 20% is theirs.

 

where you can find voice over jobs

Do you still think it’s not worth it? Check this out

available voice over work for actors

This lady has completed over 4000 projects(excluding those who didn’t leave a review) and let’s assume each job was done for $5.

4647 x $5= $23,235 -20%

$18,588(This is just an estimation as we didn’t include unreviewed jobs and of course she would have jobs worth more than $5). I just believe you get the point here?

  1. Use google search to find your local chamber of commerce:

When you search for your local chamber of commerce websites, go to the member directory. There you should find businesses or companies that would gain value from your voice over services and reach out to them. Connect with them on social websites of by a quick email. Just think of where a voice over fits in their business, let them know about it and if you impress them with your work, you might just earn yourself another voice over job.

I did a search for Illinois Chamber of Commerce and here’s what I found

providing voice over jobs for money

I will suggest having a personal website/blog to upload some of your work. Designing a blog can go a long way in helping to show your voice over works. You an even decide to do a custom sample just to WOW your prospect.

 

  1. Get Voice over jobs Through worldwide exposure on Bodalgo: Bodalgo is a pay to play site that brings voice over jobs from outside the US. One great thing about Bodalgo is the fact that they don’t actively market to actors. Rather, spend on finding businesses with voice over works to post. You won’t see many English speaking job postings but the jobs are usually from higher paying clients are mostly located outside the U.S.

You can register for Bodalgo and select “I want to register as a voice talent”. You can only see public job postings as a free member. I recommend you upgrade as they have 3 membership paid plans.

A monthly plan called the “Bodalgo 30”- it costs $30 per month

A 6-month plan called “Bodalgo 180”-which costs $130

A year plan called “Boldago 360” which cost $250

 

You can always start with the monthly plan if you are not ready for the yearly plan. Trust me it would pay off massively.

  1. Audition Invitations with Voice123: Premium members of this platform receive the opportunities to audition voice over work daily through their smartcast system. The system just takes the information given by the client and invites the best matching voice for that project automatically. With this, no need for initial completion as only those who fit would be selected. And so you know, voice123 brings people who have voice over work straight to your inbox and in volumes. Here, you’ll get to choose voice over jobs you have time for and worth your efforts.voice over jobs available online

You have a free forever plan once you register with them and can be found in searches be able to submit up to 10 demos. But in case you want more, you can sign up for a premium account ($395/year). You’ll have better search rankings and get invited to audition.

 

  1. Start submitting proposals on upwork: Just like Fiverr discussed above, upwork is a great marketplace with lots of jobs to bid for. You have to submit proposals to clients and if clients love your job, you get to work with them. You have to be aware that Upwork takes 10% of every fee. So you’d prefer to add that fee to your charges.

Getting an account is easy. Head to Upwork and sign up as a freelancer and choose the basic membership to get started. Once the account is created, start searching for voice over jobs. And if you find one you’re interested in, submit a proposal.

 

  1. Convert Blog contents into podcasts: You’ll agree that blog posts are amazing as they provide a great level of valuable information on any subjects just like the one you’re reading now on voice over jobs. You can have a podcast website, find out contents people are interested about and read them out. A lot of persons prefer to listen to an audio than reading. You can make podcasts on almost anything from vacation places, best meals, etc. Getting started, you need to search online for top blogs with valuable contents people would love and connect with the bloggers.

Now go make some money

How To Start Making Money With Affiliate Marketing

When you want to mention well-known methods of earning online, Affiliate marketing is one of the first to come to mind.

If you’re just starting out online, this is one of the fastest methods of making yourself some money. And for someone who already knows what it means to have a business online, promoting products from others is a great way to increase your income.

The notable thing about affiliate marketing is that as an affiliate you have nothing to worry about other than a product with potential for substantial sales. Every other thing is taken care of by the product creator.

Having a website is not a priority when it comes to affiliate marketing. You can choose to send people directly to the creator’s sales page and make money. The downside to this is the fact that a lot of other affiliates will be doing same and you’ll be faced with competing with them for same space. However, you can break out of this by promoting your affiliate links more intelligently and constructively.

What makes the big affiliates stand out is because they promote other’s products just the way they would promote theirs. And in turn, make loads of money.
They create their own pages different from that of the product creator and prepare the minds of the potential prospects through pre-sells.

They also pay for their own advertising to gain quality and highly targeted prospects. These players understand the 80/20 rule. And have so mastered these things and know exactly what works and what doesn’t in other to attract prospects otherwise called leads.

This is one of the reasons they make lots of money because they understand the game of being an affiliate so well. They know they would generate more money if they spend on advertising rather than relying on free advertising.

start affiliate marketing

Some of the strategies they make use of are listed below;
• PPC also known as pay per click advertising
• Reviews and personal testimonials
• The use of Niche sites directed to the products they promote
• Guest blogging
• Sweetening offers by adding their own bonuses through their affiliate links
• Giving away free yet valuable contents in form of articles and e-books
• Email Marketing

Even though all of the above-mentioned strategies are highly effective, the importance of email marketing can’t be over emphasized.

So you see, while other affiliates are busy ctrl C and ctrl V with solo ads and the rest, the supercharged affiliate marketer is bent and busy developing his own selling content. He puts a spin on his methods making the offer more alluring and appealing to the prospect. And yes more original. This sole method generates them more sales

Wait…
But that’s not all they do…

There are other things they also do; they don’t hop on every product released and start promoting. They make sure to judiciously select products and programs they are confident about and can be effectively promoted.

Even though experience and instincts play a part when it comes to picking a product, there are factors to help pick a product worth promoting. Factors like;
• Is there a market for it? How is the market demand?
• Is the sales page well organized and able to convert prospects to buyers?
• What is the overall quality and value of the product?
• Do you have enough information about the product to aid your marketing?

So you see these affiliates didn’t get to where they are in a glimpse of an eye. There’s a lot of work they put into what they do. Time and effort are mandatory to be ahead of the pack.
And a substantial income that can be generated over and over again, month after month and year after year, for as long as they wish to continue marketing and promoting affiliate products the ultimate payoff?

Choosing The Best Product To Promote

It can be overwhelming trying to choose the right product with the great potential to promote. Especially when you are faced with loads of programs and products.
Most times you wouldn’t know for sure if a product has great potential until you start promoting it. However, this can be diminished if you stick to certain factors to distinguish products with high potential from products with almost to no potential.

Firstly, you need to determine if there is a market for the product and then find out what the target audience is and if they are interested in the product.

Secondly, how does the sales page look to you? It has to be clean and appealing and able to grab attention and if trying to override it is worth your time.
You need to make the decision of going all in or out. Is it really worth your effort? Go with your instincts.

Thirdly, should you start promotion, will it make you enough profit? Some creators can be very generous when it comes to giving their affiliates commissions while others can only part with a little percentage. You will see most of these when you look into digital and physical products.

For instance, selling e-books and software products can make you as much as 75% to 100% commissions while with physical products commissions can be somewhat low(5% to 10% on the average)
Even though the percentage is important, you must know that price of products still matters. If you sell a physical product worth $1800 and a commission of 10%, that’s $180 in commissions.

On the other hand, selling products with low prices need you to generate a large volume of sales to make a substantial income.

Fourthly, the quality of the product is very important as you can’t promote a product you are not confident about. If you do, maintaining it, in the long run, would pose a problem.

Lastly, You want to make sure you can keep track of activities such as visits, click-throughs, the number of sales, etc.

Be certain this can be done, either with an independent tracking tool or the program provides that. This would keep you up to date with how your products are performing and thus, allowing to determine what campaign you need to tweak, terminate or scale.

Time To Finding Affiliate Programs

Basically, finding great affiliate programs, 3 methods are employed;
1. Conducting adequate research on a specific niche
2. Using the services of an affiliate network
3. Going through the directories of the affiliate network

Now, you must be informed that the fist method would require a considerable amount of time. But. Trust me it would be worth every effort. Of course assuming every other thing is in place to guarantee your success.

This would involve determining your target market, your choice of specific and relevant keywords.
Searching for a program would be in two stages
In stage one, a list of keywords and highly targeted phrases and of course relevant to the product would be needed. A further search on each keyword will be done which in turn leads to niche markets and products.

Adding your keyword to the word affiliate would be the start of stage two. For instance, “cat training affiliate” or “affiliate cat training”. What this would produce will either be a program tied to the keyword or a content site already an affiliate. Either way, this allows you to take action regards becoming an affiliate for a particular keyword.
With this option, all you need do is sign up with the affiliate network and you get entitled to promote products from their directory.

Even though affiliate networks might not provide you exact matches to your search queries, they can be awesome time savers.

Here are a few affiliate marketing networks;

www.cj.com
www.clickbank.com
www.warriorforum.com
www.jvzoo.com

These are extremely good networks with almost products from every niche.

However, I would like to point out that of the listed networks, only Commission Junction offers all ranges of products, services, and programs – both digital and tangible.
You can also check out amazon

On the other hand, click bank only has digital products. If it can’t be downloaded, it can’t be found in the marketplace ( marketplace.clickbank.net ).

For the third and fourth option, you get to sign up to promote products you choose independently and creators get to approve your requests. These affiliate networks only provide the platform to search and keep products and processes organized.

Here are several popular affiliate marketing directories…

Associate Programs
www.associateprograms.com

Affiliate Match
www.affiliatematch.com

Affiliates Directory
www.affiliatesdirectory.com

Affiliate Programs Directory
www.affiliate-programs-directory.com

If you need more resources, simply conduct a search using the term “affiliate program directory”.

If you are interested in affiliate marketing and would like to be taken by hand with outlined steps, I recommend Affilorama. They have all the necessary guides suitable for beginners to professionals and it is free. You can join their program by clicking here.

how to get free web traffic

Take Down The Virus And Increase Traffic

[dropcap]More[/dropcap] and more people are making intensive use of the Internet to generate additional income. Actually, this could be predicted because the internet does not go through a financial crisis and can even be very profitable. There are people who think they can make a fortune on the web in no time but that’s not entirely true. In order to achieve online success, you’ll have to work hard like in a full-time job, and even then, there’s always the question of whether you will succeed. If you’re looking for a way to get rich soon, I’d shoot the internet!

 Increase Traffic to blog

Making money on the internet is possible in many different ways but the most used option is of course affiliate marketing. Affiliate marketing is recommending services and products that are not made by you. Often this happens by placing banners and hyperlinks on websites, forums, Google Video or social media platforms, but the professionals know that there are many more possibilities.

If you intend to start affiliate marketing shortly then you will need an account together with a mouse and a keyboard to connect an affiliate network. An affiliate network is a website that companies and product owners can report to promote their products by the help/use of affiliates and making extra sales. There are dozens of affiliate networks, for example, warriorplus, Jvzoo, PayPro, Daisycon, and M4N, but personally, I only use Warriorplus and Jvzoo.

I’ve said it before and will repeat it again. It’s possible to earn a lot of money online with affiliate marketing but it’s not a “get rich quick method”. To start with, affiliate marketing would be useful if you have the necessary technical knowledge, but it is not necessary! If you want to earn money early through affiliate marketing, you will have to work well in the beginning of your career for a few months without realizing sales. Affiliate marketing will only be profitable if you have enough website articles, videos, and social media followers, the more links you can spread across the internet, the farther you go!

how to Increase Traffic to website

If you want to learn how to earn money online through this model, then there are enough websites on the Internet to help you. Also, check out the website’s  millionaire model for more information on affiliate marketing and making money online(it’s free to join).

The Virus; Avoid it!

And what is this virus that plagues affiliate marketers? poor traffic! Yes, that’s it, you need quality traffic to your offers to generate money with this model. How can this be done you ask? keep reading my friend.

A marketing blog can be a great tool for generating targeted online leads for your business. You only not have to be able to lead large amounts of traffic to your blog, but also to maintain a loyal audience who will end up on your email list.
how to build list from free trafic

When you ask yourself how to do it right now, read the following tips:

Always share quality content: The chances to keep your affiliate business blog traffic, let alone expand, are very small when your contents are of low quality. So do thorough research on a topic before you make content. Your readers will only come back if they find your content useful. Just about the topics: focus on solving the problems of your audience. Identify your audience’s issue and strive to access them through your blog posts. This will help you improve the quality of your leads.

Develop one special mail per week: Leave one day a week in which you post a regular post, next to your regular posts. Spend some time studying the topics and demonstrate your expertise in this topic through these posts. This is the only way to put yourself down as an expert, where anyone can go for advice and in the long run, it’s an easy way to attract prospects towards you and your affiliate business.

Post frequently and consistently: This helps in increasing and retaining traffic.   Search engines keep fresh contents, making blogs higher in rank than websites. So by posting frequently and consistently, you increase the chance of getting higher in search engines, especially when you use efficient SEO strategies. Your audience will also expect you to add more content each time and when they find themselves in your posting rhythm, they will return to your blog as well as bookmark contents.

Be interactive with your readers: Allow readers to leave comments on your posts and respond to their comments. Thank them for their compliments and discuss issues they submit. Responds above all to their questions every time should you want them to come back. Nobody wants to be ignored.

Networking With Other affiliate marketers In Your Niche: It would be very useful to get backlinks to your business marketing blog, sure of other bloggers/affiliate marketers in your niche. So, get in touch with them, ask them to link to your blog and do the same to them. Respond to their blogs and maybe ask them for guest posts.
