I had to get out. I actually had this random Facebook ad come up in my news feed (go figure) and it eventually led me to a webinar that taught on how to start an email marketing business (which is, by the way, the most profitable form of affiliate marketing – or ANY marketing for that matter). I listened through the whole 2 hours, completely mesmerized. By the end of it, I knew what I was going to be focusing on to help my family out of the pit of debt we were in and into a world free of financial stress. I didn’t know if it would actually work, but eventually it lead to EXCESS income!

Oops, my last sentence should have been “in addition to buying your services and courses” not “except”, it was already after 12 at night here yesterday. Yes, checking niches obsessively is something I can relate too as well. I think I got about some hundred domains I bought after researching new topics but then never found the time to build content for them and really make use of them. After renewing them for two or three years in a row I decided to focus on related niches I can build like more related content for and then also throwing in some useful links in between them. 🙂

Venture capitalist Marc Suster has a blog post called “Is It Time For You to Earn or to Learn?” and I think that’s the exact scenario here, especially when you’re first starting out. I use none of those skills nowadays that I learned in college. It’s totally useless. As a matter of fact, the first job I got coming out of college was a dead-end job doing data entry, and my friend introduced me to Internet marketing, and that’s when I started learning everything.
Do you know of a successful business that needs capital for expansion? If so, you can become something of a small-time angel investor and provide that needed capital. But rather than offering a loan to a business owner, you instead take an equity position in the business. In this way, the business owner will handle the day-to-day operations, while you will act as a silent partner who also participates in the profits of the business.
Residual income is often also referred to as, “passive” or “recurring” income. Indeed, money makes the world go ’round. What better way to earn money than through letting money work for you even while you sleep? Surely, no greater method is available or even imaginable. The key here is to work smarter, not harder. Industriousness is required and you should be prepared to be very persistent. A common method of steadily earning residual income is through royalties earned from a book, song composition, software, or mobile application. Types of recurring income are not limited to royalties. Here are ten methods to begin earning.
The commission rate of 70% is impressive, especially as the eBook sells for $47. The site also offers a range of banners that you can use to promote the product, along with marketing advice and sample articles. The product would never be something to center an entire site around. But, it is relevant to many fields, including weight loss, wellbeing and health.

1. The batting cage idea is very risky. I’ve seen many of them close over the years and it is not anything close to passive income if you want to keep the business going. You have to continually promote it and target youth leagues, coaches, schools etc to catch all of the new players who grow up and want to play. I’ve played at probably 8 batting cages over the years and 7 of them closed.
I was reading an AMA on Reddit’s Entrepreneur section recently and came across the owner of an online store for glass pipes and other smoking-related items. Since I was working on this article at the time, I decided to do some research into the types of keywords his site was ranking for. After all, it had generated over $6M in revenue in 2016 so far so the site must be doing quite well.
As an alternative, you can dedicate your time and efforts to generating as many unique leads as possible, and earn a good sum through quantity. This means you should not let high rates fool you. A commission of 30%-40% for the affiliate could be attractive relative to rates of 1%-5%. However, what matters is how much you can sell. Imagine that you have two products, both of which cost $100. From the first you can earn 40%, while from the second “just” 10%. Seems logical to work with the most profitable?
