Julie said in a recent interview that being a VA is a great way to become rich online, but that you have to be strategic about it. You can’t just offer the same-old, same-old VA skills and expect to bring in more than about $35/hour. And while that’s pretty good money for a lot of people, it also puts a pretty big limit on your income when your true limits could be much higher.
There’s an excellent chance that you have one or several musical instruments sitting in storage that haven’t been used in years. Perhaps it’s a leftover from when you were in school, or even from your days playing in a band. Whatever the reason that you have it, it’s probably worth money if you can sell it. Brand-new instruments are ridiculously expensive, so people often look to buy used equipment instead, particularly if they are novices.
While publishing an ebook on Kindle isn’t the easiest way to make money, it can be a worthwhile way to make some extra cash if you love writing. You can create listicle books like ‘100 Ways to Save for a House.’ Listicles are generally easier to write and can be effective at driving traffic. To market your ebook, you can take advantage of Amazon’s Kindle Countdown Deals promotions where you can give your ebook away for free to help boost its ranking on the platform. Once the promotion is over, you can likely get a few sales from its higher rank. You can also promote your ebook on several platforms like ebook review websites and relevant niche blogs. To boost sales even more, you can create an audiobook version of your ebook on Audible.
White labeling products involve purchasing pre-made products from a supplier and then adding your own labeling and branding. Products could range from candles to gym equipment or even tea, but all will come without labels, allowing you to create your own new range of merchandise. Most suppliers will advertise the fact they offer white labeled goods on their websites, so pick your niche and then find the right supplier and product for you. Once labeled, products can be sold via sites like eBay and Amazon, or from your own eCommerce store (discussed in a moment).

This is an affordable way to earn money online within days of launching. It works like a charm. Create a retargeting ad for your online store. You can use an app like Shoelace if you don’t know how to create one. At the same time, you need to pump out a ton of blog content. Write blog posts over 1500 words. In each article, you’ll want to mention an influencer. You could do a quotes article such as ‘15 Quotes from [influencer]’ or a tips article like ‘15 [niche] Experts Share their best [niche] tips.’ Stick to influencers with medium sized audiences. Influencers with millions of fans probably won’t share your link. However, someone with a smaller audience may love being featured and share it. You can even post a request for experts on HARO and ask them to share your article since you’ll have their contact information. The retargeting ad is much cheaper than a standard product ad. However, to achieve success, you’ll need the traffic from the relevant niche influencers. When retargeting your audience, you need to create an ad of your best selling product or a really attention grabbing one. You’ll want to have the ad running before you do outreach so you don’t miss any of the traffic from the shares.

There is no upkeep or maintenance to get this thing going, which makes it a no-brainer if you have a website already.
