How to make money online


The following methods will show you how to make money online, avoiding the many scams that pollute the Web. If you wish to have a more exhaustive list, then read my article on the different ways to make money on the internet on

There are 3 ways described in this article to make money effectively from websites. Of course, after reading this article, you will also be able to use them! These techniques are at everyone’s fingertips.
Indeed, we cannot say that it is hard money to make. Once the site is launched, the money will return itself. Hence the term “passive income“.

Method 1 – Make money from your website with Adsense (ads)

In 2006, a man opened a blog where he claimed to be a cartoonist of Steve Jobs: Everyone is crazy about its content! The articles are humorous, well researched and the angle is excellent. In fact, his website is so good that it caught the attention of the New York Times!

The author has tried his best to remain undetected for as long as possible. However, in an N-Y Times article, Brad Stones revealed the anonymity of Daniel Lyons, the author of this famous blog.

The day of the journal article’s publication, the site welcomed over 500 000 new visitors!

Daniel doesn’t believe his eyes! He finally became rich! His salary? $ 100 for a day. $ 1,039.81 for the month. Ouch … Not so impressive at the end of the day! He has millions of visitors to his website and he can’t even do more than a cashier at McDonald’s!

FakeSteveJobs then commented:

“I learned the hard way that a blog can do a lot of great things, but that makes a lot of money from it.”

In the industry, AdSense is considered a joke. This is the least profitable way, but also the easiest way to generate revenue through your website. In less than two, you can install the code snippet on your website and start making money.

Currently, this blog costs $ 20 per month according to AdSense … For the lowest profit, I should attract 150 times more traffic … 1.8 million visitors! It’s ridiculous.

And yet, John Lee Dumas, one of the 3 extremely wealthy web entrepreneurs mentioned above, makes money with ads!

Of course, it does not use AdSense! He sells directly to companies he likes, having a shared interest with his audience. This way, he can afford to sell much higher CPMs (cost per thousand impressions).

On my blog, AdSense gives me about $ 1.25 CPM. When selling to businesses, it’s not uncommon to ask between $ 8 and $ 25. At this rate, a site like mine is worth $ 400 a month – 20 times more than AdWords.

To make money this way, you usually have to have a website that has a larger audience than me. For example: a famous blog, fashion, sports, etc.

Method 2 – Make money online with product sales

Did you notice that I sell resumes, guides and other things on my website?
Your product does not need to be specific or solid. Today, you can use Gumroad to sell anything online in less than 5 minutes.

I honestly think selling digital products is the best way to make money from your blog. This is how Nathan Barry made a lot of money ($ 256,725.00)! He even launched a book explaining how to make a lot of money with the sale of a book (ironically?).

Of course, that’s not just selling books. I know a photographer who makes a living selling his or her photos as a monthly subscription. A good part of his repertoire is free and no rights, I recommend you to check out his website here.

And finally, if you want to sell a physical product, there’s nothing stopping you! You can use Shopify or WooCommerce to create an online store. If you don’t want to worry about delivery and handling, you can call DropShipper.
I personally know Doba, I used them in 2007 when I opened my online store on eBay. It integrates very well with eBay, Facebook and Shopify.

Method 3 – Product recommendations (affiliate)

On the Internet, this type of practice is very popular. In fact, many websites exist only for this reason. is a good example. Search for “the best vacuum for your pet hair” on Google, which is on the list of the top 10 products on the market with a list of pros and cons. If you decide to click on one of the article links, a cookie will be installed on your computer, indicating it is thanks to that you have visited this site. If you eventually decide to buy, the author of the site will earn a certain commission.

Many people are questioning the ethics of so-called affiliate marketing. Is it ethical to recommend a product if there is clearly a personal interest in doing so?

For this reason many websites put “link disclaimer” at the bottom of the page.

Personally, I recommend only the products I use and love. When a company approached me with a bullshit product, I immediately showed them the door.

How to do affiliate marketing?

I use some web portals to retrieve the majority of websites that have affiliate programs. I will make a quick list:

  • Shareasale
  • Clickbank
  • JVZooThe brave woman

There are many others, but these are the ones I use myself. Some websites have a separate system to manage their affiliate links. You will need to search for “links” or “partner programs” at the bottom of their website to access.


Making money online has never been easier. Whether you are a photographer, a writer, a tattoo artist, a stylist, a musician … In short, no matter what you are passionate about, you have the opportunity to generate (at least) extra income.
