Once you have that problem or need nailed, the next step is to validate that idea and make sure you’ve actually got customers who will pay for it. This means building a minimum viable product, getting objective feedback from real customers, incorporating updates, testing the market for demand, and getting pricing feedback to ensure there’s enough of a margin between your costs and what consumers are willing to pay.
Some people argue that you can make money without a lot of traffic and while that is true in some circumstances, you will generally need a lot of website traffic to start earning from a blog and that takes a while. Once you’ve reached that point, here are the primary ways to monetize your blog and start earning:
Medium is an online community where anyone can post articles and essays and get them in front of their audience of millions of monthly readers. While it can be a great place to build your audience for your own blog or find customers for your consulting business, with Medium’s new Partner Program, you can now make money online whenever someone reads your articles. Register for free and you can choose whether your articles are freely available or only readable by those people paying $5/month for a premium Medium membership. You’ll make money based on the amount of people who read and engage with your posts each month.
The music industry might not be as strong as it was in the 80s, but there are still plenty of ways to make money online as a musician. Sites like SoundBetter let you sell your services as a songwriter, producer, or session musician to thousands of customers a month. While Musicbed, Music Vine, Marmoset, and SongFreedom are perfect for licensing your music to TV shows, movies, and web series.
Sites like Tutor.com and TutorVista.com will connect you with people looking for help learning a subject, and you might be in particularly high demand if you’re good with math, science or a foreign language. You have to go through an application process, and once you’re approved you can start getting paid.
Have you bought anything in the last couple of months that you haven’t yet used? If you still have the receipt, you can probably get a refund. Return policies vary, but some stores are pretty generous. For example, Walmart’s refund policy allows up to 90 days for most items.
If you’re a skilled worker in a specific niche, like marketing, design, or software development, there are specialty marketplaces that cater just to you. These are amazing places to make money online as you know that the people visiting them are looking specifically for the skills you have. Check out places like 99Designs or Dribbble for designers, Cloudpeeps for marketing and SEO professionals, and TopTal, Crew, or Gigster for high-level software developers.
I’m a Kyani distributor living in Australia. I have been with several nutritional MLM companies over the recent decades and taken many different supplements since becoming interested in attaining better health and increasing sports performance since the early 90’s.
* Why 10 years? Because that amount of time really seems to matter. For example, according to research, since 1956 thousands of different MLM, Multi Level, or Network Marketing companies have opened their doors; and to date only +/- 50 MLM companies have found a way to celebrate their 10th anniversary and still remain in business today. Now, to be completely fair, we should also point out that each and every company on our list was at one time a start-up company too.
The most important thing you need before you do anything else is a problem. What do people need that they don’t have? What solution is currently out there that you can do better? This alone is the basis of every great startup.
Hi John, I’m sorry that you didn’t experience a measurable difference in 7 days. I didn’t either when it came to arthritic pain, but I ordered a month’s supply and within three weeks, the pain in my hips that was debilitating, was gone! I’ve been on the products for 7 months and no hip pain or chronic headaches either. Being all natural ingredients, they take a while to have an effect on your system and every person is different. I encourage everyone to purchase a month’s supply. There is a 30 day MBG, less shipping. With nothing to lose and only wellness to gain, you should try a month’s supply! Kyani products do not cure any diseases, but many people are having amazing health results and getting their quality of life back. Email me to learn more about the products at my website. Best wishes to you.
Kyani is not specifically designed for weight loss. I have been taking kyani for several months and in 5 weeks my depression was 75% better,100% better for my blood cloths,100% better for my insomnia,85% better for my chronic pain,85% better for my arthritis and my osteoarthritis.
Kyani’s second product, Sunset, was intended for evening consumption. It carries the most potent forms of lipid-soluble nutrients – nutrients optimal for maximizing absorption: Vitamins A, D, E and Omega 3.
If you have a blog or have written extensively about a topic, see whether you could compile those past articles into a book At the very least, those posts can give you a foundation for your book, and a great head-start on your word count goals.
Understand how a niche website works. A niche website focuses on very targeted, specific information. The content must be specific, useful and interesting to your target audience. Successful niche websites get anywhere from 1,000 to 10,000 visitors per month. You build content on a particular keyword, and you make passive income with Google Adsense or through affiliate links.
While participants’ movement up the pyramid of an MLM can be accomplished in theory, and indeed this is one of the distinguishing factors between MLMs and traditional pyramid schemes (besides featuring actual sales of products or services), said upward movement is so extremely improbable as to render it practically impossible, despite all efforts and investments of time and money by a participant.

If you want to call your own shots in life, if you’re willing to get the education you will need to run a small business, if you enjoy working with people, then network marketing just might be right kind of business for you.
Hi I saw your post and I am looking to start working at home so I can have my 2 kiddos at home, would you mind giving me advice to get started? My emaik is [email protected] hope to hear from you
I have tried many products, some network marketing, some the health food store, chiropractor’s office, so I thought this product sounded good to try as I have had arthritis from head to toe from a car accident 40 years ago. I have tried several supplements, do yoga, chiropractic, exercise, to keep the pain level down and Kyani sounded too good to be true. So I signed up under a friend, and when I received the product, found much of it had Sodium Benzoate, a preservative, in several of the liquid and gel capsule products, including the skin care product, which I am highly allergic to. I contacted Kyani Customer Service about returning the unopened product, and they told me the process, so I sent back the $599 package, minus to 2 boxes I had opened and tried. They only refunded $35 and $70, stating that because I removed the plastic wrap, that was considered open product. I have worked with many network marketing companies, and many allow you to return product if you are not able to take it (food product or supplement) and this is the first time I have come across a company that does not stand behind their product as many others do. They argued with me that there is only a little bit of Sodium Benzoate in the product, keep taking it and you will get use to it. Well, I don’t get use to itching all over, my tongue swelling and throat closing. I’m very disappointed in their poor customer service.
A few noteworthy points on this list… The only companies considered for this list are U.S.A. based; and if you click on each and every company linked above, what you will not find should be as interesting to you (and as revealing) as what you will find. There are no travel companies, only two technology companies (ACN and 5LINX), just one service company (Legal Shield), and 22 health and wellness companies. Even Amway, whose core product line still includes soap, really got started by way of the wellness revolution! Read this book by Paul Zane Pilzer and you’ll understand why nutrition, weight management, and skincare products continue to drive the trends in the network marketing industry to this day.

If you’re a creative type becoming a web designer may be up your alley. Some people learn web design by trial and error, while others learn web design in college or by taking courses. (I’ve heard good things about The Girls Guide to Web Design, if you’re interested in taking a course.)
If you need money fast blogging isn’t the career for you. You shouldn’t expect to make any money blogging until you’re about a year in. However, blogging is something you can easily incorporate in your life with just a few hours per week and could make a nice side job for you.
