How to Make Money Online from Home [3 Secrets and 5 Easy Jobs]

I’m sharing five jobs to make money online
from home, two of which I’ve just developed so I know nobody else is doing them. In this video, I’ll not only show you how
to get started in each of these and how much you can make, I’m revealing three secrets
to all work from home jobs that will guarantee your success. We’re talking making money from home today
on Let’s Talk Money! Beat debt. Make money. Make your money work for you. Creating the financial future you deserve. Let’s Talk Money! Joseph Hogue with the Let’s Talk Money channel
here on YouTube. I want to send a special shout out to everyone
in the community, thank you for taking a little of your time to be here today. If you’re not part of the community yet,
just click that little red subscribe button. It’s free and you’ll never miss an episode. I’m going to show you a graphic that should
scare anyone still depending on a traditional job, an employer, for their income. So this shows two types of tax forms collected
by the IRS, the W-2 form you get from a traditional employer reporting your wages and the 1099
form you get when working as a contract employee or in that side hustle economy. And if this doesn’t immediately scare you
then you’re not looking close enough. The lines here are based off the number of
these forms the IRS got in 2000 and you can see that since that time, those W-2 forms
have decreased. That means the IRS has been getting fewer
of these traditional job forms each year, employers are hiring fewer of those traditional
type of employees. But look at this line for the number of 1099
forms collected by the IRS. It’s surged since 2000 and some estimates
put the contract economy as high as one-in-ten Americans right now. This growth in online jobs, the gig economy,
side hustles or freelance contractors, whatever you want to call it. Where do you think these jobs are coming from? Getting started on one of the five online
jobs we’ll talk about in this video or the others we’ve highlighted on the channel,
it’s no longer about making extra money. It’s not going to be long before all work
is done this way, as a freelance work from home idea and getting started now is absolutely
critical to securing your financial future! So what I want to do in this video is cover
five ways to make money online and from home that anyone can use, no matter what your experience. We won’t talk about blogging or starting
a YouTube channel or anything like that. These are great income sources and I’ve
built a six-figure income from them but I wanted to focus on jobs anyone can start. I’m also going to be sharing three secrets
that will guarantee your success no matter what work from home job you choose so stick
around for those towards the end of the video. This first one is going to be a wide-open
market because nobody is doing it, offering digital marketing and brand promotion at a
local level. I love this idea because it combines the offline
world with the online. It combines a lot of different jobs people
are doing but nobody has yet to put it all together. What you’re doing here is going to local
businesses to offer digital marketing services. You’ll go online to blogs with a local audience
or review sites, anywhere your client’s customers might hangout online. Then you’re going to write guest posts on
the blogs, leave reviews, engage in social forums and social media, all to help promote
and manage the brand for your client. The separate pieces here; writing, brand management,
advertising. These all exist already but nobody is combining
that online service with an offline, face-to-face and personal relationship you can build with
these local businesses. That online brand management and promotion
is something small businesses desperately need and they feel completely mystified by
it. They know they need a solution, fear to their
core that they’re missing out and have no idea where to begin. This is a job that starts at $50 an hour and
is something that will turn into a six-figure business very quickly. Once you start working with a few companies,
you’ll develop a resources list you can use for every job in that industry. You’ll have already developed your list
of restaurant and food blogs or forums or Facebook groups you can engage with for every
new client. Start locally here. Visit small businesses, put together a couple
of promotion packages you can offer at different price levels. After a year of this, you can start expanding
into different cities and start building your team to do the work. Now I want to get to those other four ways
to make money online and the three success tips but I also want to get your opinion. Are you currently doing any kind of side hustle
or freelance work from home or if not, what’s your biggest hurdle to starting something
like this? What is keeping you from getting started on
your work from home business? Just a quick question to see where the community
is on this one. Scroll down and tell us in the comments so
I know what types of videos we need to make. This next one, I’m just going to call it
being a book guru because I don’t think there’s a name for it. One of the most consistent habits we see in
millionaires, without fail, is the idea of making time for reading. In fact, research by Thomas Crowley found
that 85% of self-made millionaires read two or more books a month. That’s not only reading how-to books on
business but biographies, self-improvement and even leisure reading. Billionaire Mark Cuban schedules three hours
a day for reading and Bill Gates reads 50 books a year. Reading more is something we all know we need
to do…but how many actually do it? Your job here is going to be making it possible
for people to get that knowledge without having to crack open a book. This is going to be like a consulting or coaching
business but instead of trying to sell your experience or knowledge, you’re selling
the experience and knowledge of Richard Branson or Jack Welch or Bill Gates. What you’re going to do is read the most
popular books; books on business, on success and mindset. I mean really study the books, take notes
and learn the lessons. Then you offer one-on-one consulting and group
masterminds explaining the books. Now this goes beyond just giving people the
cliff’s notes to a book. You’re pointing out the biggest lessons,
helping people understand how they can use the information. Besides doing that consulting idea, you can
put what you learn in a quick download or printable to sell for another income stream. Your clients are going to be busy business
people, folks that know they need to be reading these books and implementing the advice, but
just don’t have time. Finding clients is actually going to be easier
than you imagine on this one. You can write up short reviews of the books
on a blog and add a lead-in to your services. I think you’ll find LinkedIn is all you
need though to reach the business community and those entrepreneurs that need this service. This next way to make money online is one
I’ve done for extra cash but can be a legit business through flipping websites. Websites are the digital real estate of the
21st century. Not only are people creating and developing
websites just like you might develop a piece of raw land into a hotel, there’s a huge
opportunity in taking neglected sites, rehabbing them and flipping for a profit. You see, it takes nothing to start a website. Less than three bucks a month and you can
be online. Growing that site, knowing what it takes to
get traffic and make it a legit business is something entirely different. More than 90% of the blogs and websites out
there don’t last more than six months. People get frustrated and they give up, they
abandon their digital real estate. That’s where you come in. You pick these neglected sites up for nothing,
rehab them to get some basic traffic and start making money, then flip them in three months
for a huge profit. I did this with a dating website I bought
in 2015 from another blogger. The site was making less than $100 a month
but had legitimate content and I knew the blogger had genuinely tried to make it work. I bought the site for $500 and started boosting
traffic with regular posts and some search engine optimization. I was able to increase income to $350 a month
within three months and ended up selling it for $5,000 nine months later. That’s $4,500 on one site alone and I know
people that do this full-time, working on five or six sites at a time. makes it easy to buy and sell websites
though you’ll also want to get involved in an online community of bloggers to pick
up sites. Now this is something that takes a little
work to understand how to turnaround a site but there are a few things you can do to boost
traffic and income that will get you a better price. First is to get involved in a community of
bloggers, either one in a specific niche or just general blogging. Look for groups on Facebook that are active
in posting but not just spamming their recent article. You’ll learn a lot from these groups and
they’ll be an instant source for sharing your articles. Don’t try to be on every social media platform
for your blog. You don’t need to jump on the newest platform,
just focus on building a community on Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest at first by sharing
your posts and engaging with others. For new blogs with little Google traffic,
this is going to be your biggest traffic source at first. Finally, make sure you diversify your income
on the site. This is the biggest mistake I see with bloggers
where maybe they rely exclusively on ads or affiliate income. By doing some sponsored posts, printables
and even self-publishing, you can grow a blog to making a couple hundred a month very quickly
and it’s going to be more consistent. I’ve got an entire playlist of videos here
on the channel about starting and building a blog so I’ll leave a link in the video
description below. Two more work from home online jobs and these
are my favorites of the group. First though, if you’re likin’ the video,
do me a favor and tap that thumbs up button below. This next work from home gig is again taking
a traditional job and bringing it online as a health and wellness coach. Health is taking a back seat to all the stress
and the rush of our daily lives. Wellness is an even bigger idea that includes
mental affirmations like confidence and self-worth and as bad as most Americans’ health is…their
wellness is stage four terminal. But you’re saying, there are thousands of
books and websites on all of this, from how to live healthy to self-improvement but we’re
obviously not following it. What we need is a real person, someone to
help guide us on that path and keep us on it daily. Now the biggest thing stopping most people
from doing this type of consulting business will be those nagging little voices saying
you’re not an expert. That impostor syndrome and fear people will
think you’re a fraud. Listen up folks because this is going to help
you in any business idea. You CAN do this. You can become the expert and your personal
experience has more value than you know. Putting yourself on that personal journey
to turn your own health around, to build the self-confidence for success, that experience
is all you need to drive that transformation in others. People are going to relate to your story,
your transformation, and they’re going to want to make it their own. Yeah, you might not be the six-pack stud in
the infomercials. You might not be the Miss America contestant
with perfect teeth. You’re a real person that has fought for
this change in your life and with the special knowledge to make it a reality for others. Now with this type of business, one of those
success hacks we’ll talk about later is going to be critical. You need to set up multiple income streams
here so you’re not just relying on that consulting. You can offer bi-weekly calls, progress tracking
and guidance. You can do this individually or serving a
group. Even charging something like $15 a week per
person and you can easily get to six-figures on this type of business. One more way to make money from home before
those three success secrets, becoming a virtual assistant. This one is wide open from basic admin tasks,
organization and scheduling to specialized jobs. Now I know this is nothing new, there are
lots of virtual assistants out there competing for jobs…but why is it so hard to find a
good one? Seriously, I have been looking for a good
assistant for almost a year and friends in my blogger community, they are always looking
for help. It is so hard to find someone that can do
this job well. That means, do it well and you can charge
a premium for the work, from $20 an hour up to $35 an hour and more. You can find clients from some of the freelancing
sites like Upwork and but the best jobs are found by engaging in Facebook
groups and just getting to know a group of business owners. You’re going to learn specifically what
kinds of tasks they need done and you’ll be able to get a job without competing on
a global level. Now I want to reveal those three secrets to
being successful in any online business. More than anything else, these three ideas
will help you get started and make money online. First is don’t think you have to be THE
expert in a topic to offer advice or have a business. I briefly hinted at the psychological phenomenon
called impostor syndrome earlier where those nagging little voices in your head say, “Who
the hell am I to be giving advice?” The problem here is that people let those
nagging little voices win. They let that fear of rejection keep them
from ever getting started. Now this doesn’t mean you can just jump
into any business idea, any topic, and start talking like you know what you’re doing. You need to do your research, learn how things
work, but I’m going to give you two very powerful ideas here. First is to share your own personal story
and use that to help people create their own transformation. For example, you might not be the world’s
leading expert on paying off debt but you’ve got your own experience paying off your credit
cards or budgeting or whatever. When you share your story, it helps people
relate. They can see that story as their own, learn
from the mistakes and the successes. It becomes personal for them too and they’re
much more likely to follow the advice. This is so important, creating that personal
connection through stories. How many people read through how many millions
of blog posts every day about saving money? I’d bet that 99% of them fail at saving,
fail at their goals, because those blog posts fail to use that personal connection to motivate
people. So don’t underestimate the power of your
own personal story in being the expert. Also is to focus on a single transformation
with your customers. If you don’t have decades of experience
as a fitness instructor, don’t try to turn your customers into Arnold Schwarzenegger. Focus on one thing you can do for them and
make that your business. For example here, maybe you focus on healthy
eating and don’t try to be an overall health & wellness coach. Don’t try to bite off everything, trying
to tell people how to exercise and their diet and everything else. Learn how to drive that one transformation,
that one goal. You’ll become an expert in this one idea
very quickly and you can gradually expand your services into other parts of the topic. Our next success hack here is to develop multiple
income streams from your business. This one is huge and is something I see most
people miss. They focus on that one income idea, maybe
coaching one-on-one or flipping websites and never make as much as they could. The idea here is that in every business, there
are different ways to make money. You might not get rich on any single idea
but put three or four or five of these income streams together and you’ve really got something. I only net about two grand a month from self-publishing
but add that to another four grand from affiliates, three to four grand from YouTube ads and a
few other sources and I’m consistently over ten grand a month. All these income sources, they’re within
that content creator, blogger kind of business model so it’s not like I’m trying to juggle
multiple businesses. The core is creating information, I’ve just
found a way to repackage it differently and use each of those as an income stream. For your own business, this might mean something
like creating short-guides to sell or full-length books. You can do one-on-one consulting and also
offer group coaching. You can put what you know into a simple checklist,
something people can buy as a download for the main points. Our third business hack, and this is another
one that so many online entrepreneurs miss, is really spending some time to develop a
marketing plan. It is not enough to have a great product. There are thousands, hundreds of thousands
of great products out there, but they fail as a business because they can’t get their
message in front of people. Getting your message in front of people, that
first step in your marketing plan, means some kind of distribution strategy. This might mean developing your own blog or
YouTube channel. It might mean finding popular blogs or channels
in the topic and connecting with the owners so they let you spread your message on their
site. The other route here is paying for advertising
on these sites or through social media. But having that distribution isn’t enough,
having a blog or channel isn’t going to be enough to make your business a success. The second step in your marketing plan is
how to guide people through the buying decision, sharing your message and making it their own. This means creating what’s called a marketing
funnel. It’s a way of getting people into a process,
maybe by collecting their email address, then guiding them through the decision-making process
to your product. We just don’t buy things we see advertised. We see so many commercials every day, we’re
blind to it. We need that extra push to make the decision. So as a business owner, you need to capture
people’s attention and get them on your list. You can do this with a freebie, so maybe a
free checklist or download. Then you warm that potential customer up with
emails sharing your personal experience with the product or with client testimonials. You help them see how much better their life
can be and then, only then do you present your product as a solution. Want to see the 10 highest paying jobs you

  2. These ideas sound really good but to put them into practicality is the obstacle. How would I even know how to put a package together and how much to charge? What I need the step by step processes to get it going.

  3. Great tips. A non-easy job that you can do from home that I'd recommend that makes a ton of money (& without a degree) is programming. Give yourself a couple years to get good at it (at night if you are already working), build up your github resume, and then get get contract jobs or full-time jobs. Just get your foot in the door (starting programmers are around 80k to 100k+ in a normal city, not CA where its higher — and sky is the limit if you join tech companies with stock options). I've hired tons of people in tech over the years and a key I looked for (other than competency) is passion for programming.

  4. It's not easy to make extra money with a 9-5 job but you provide some good options. I also try provide alternatives on my channel. Thanks for sharing.
