What if I were to tell you that the vast majority of reasons you are NOT earning what you deserve are not your fault? Your fumbles, your struggles, your stops and starts and your frustrating failures are all part of the culture of information overload that permeates the internet marketing landscape like a plague.
The truth is, the EASIEST way to earn $100 an hour online is simple. Coaching, teaching or training others to do something you already do really, really well.
I’ve watched business coaches earn $300 per hour teaching online marketing strategies to OFFLINE professionals that just about all of us know like the back of our hands.
I’ve watched a client of mine quit her day job as a nursing administrator, after only 3 months of studying internet marketing techniques, and start a full time business setting up relationship marketing email campaigns for doctors and dentists.
I know a guy who does website “reviews” for his readers… and charges $250 per review, for a 10 point rating and revision system he offers that literally takes him 45 minutes to write (and his clients seem to love them… and just about anybody reading this article right now can do the very same thing).
The truth is, coaching, teaching and training… either in a one on one sort of service, or a group coaching environment, (or a combination of both) is the absolute EASIEST way to parlay your passion into profit that there is.
That said, there are still people I find that don’t want to do coaching.
Here are 2 more additional ways to either augment, supplement or replace personal services that can easily earn you $100 an hour with elegant ease… even if you are just starting out right now.
Creating your own information products.
Simply turn your coaching business into a product and offer it for sale on your blog or website. I’ve taken my own best coaching sessions and turned them into audio product and pdf’s, and the income you can earn from this model… as many of the online “gurus” have proven, is quite astonishing in the right markets. The truth is, the BEST way to earn fantastic money with information products is NOT in the “IM” space at all. Diet, Dating, Divorce and other evergreen markets that have nothing to do with making money are far superior and have much broader appeal as well.
Affiliate marketing as an INCENTIVIZED offer.
This is a bit more complex to explain in a short article, but the long and short of it is… you can literally GIVE way your products, your PDF’s, your audios, and even your services in exchange for people making a purchase that pays you an affiliate commission that is GREATER than what you could or would charge on your own.
I know a woman who gives away her own services to anyone who purchases a service she recommends that costs her readership about $10-$20, and pays HER over $100 (it’s a psychic reading service that pays a commission of $100 + to their affiliates for the first paid call, simply because they know that people who call once, will call back many times in the future as well, making it sensible for them to offer such a high commission to folks who recommend them).
She earns $300-$500 a day doing this, and is able to give away her own services in the process… which helps her attract an audience, grow her own reputation, built a great rapport and relationship with her readership, and earn a strong 6 figure salary as well.
