I decided to toss up a post with 5 ways to make $100+ per day. I’m not selling an ebook or trying to get you to read my affiliate marketing blog. These are just good ideas to keep in mind.
I’d love to hear your opinions, feedback, and ideally to hear some of your suggestions/methods in the comment box!
1.) Freelancing. Offer a service, such as writing (content creation), design, coding, SEO, etc. I know many people who don’t even have sites that exclusively provide services and make well over $100/day.
Can it be scaled? Outsourcing is key to scaling.
2.) PPC. You all know what it is. Don’t listen to ANYONE who says “that market is way too saturated.” Keep this in your mind: there is no such thing as an oversaturated market. Yes, this includes things like ringtones, nike, dating, adult, etc.
PPC-Coach is fantastic for learning, but there are so many resources on how to properly optimize PPC campaigns you shouldn’t have trouble learning, even without PPC-Coach.
A final note: Yes, PPC does require an initial investment, but it isn’t nearly as much as some would like you to believe.
Can it be scaled? Yes, nearly endlessly. Paul Bourque wrote an excellent article on scaling, despite his recent criticisms.
3.) The Shotgun Approach. This is a fairly popular method and you’ve probably heard of it before. Design 100 (or more) sites for which the goal of each is to make $1/day. $1/day is NOT difficult to achieve on nearly any site by means of CPC (adsense or others), ebay (phpbay, BANS, etc), and/or CPA offers.
Can it be scaled? Yes. Just keep building sites. Make 100 sites that each earn $1/day over the course of a year. Tweak them as you go to hit the $2/day mark.
As you can see, the “shotgun approach” will quickly add up your revenues. You are also highly diversified (one site dies/goes down/stops performing – oh well, no big deal). It’s a lot of work, but very possible to make $100+ daily.
4.) Classifieds Marketing. I know a lot of you play in this arena. Classified sites like Kijiji, Gumtree, and quite especially Craigslist are all goldmines. Most people think that doing anything regarding online sales for these sites is “spamming” or “blackhat”, when in fact it’s very possible to do entirely whitehat marketing and profit handsomely. I, personally, don’t subscribe to any particular hat color, so I do a bit of everything with these kinds of affiliate marketing sites when it suits my needs.
Can it be scaled? Yes, quite so. Consider the number of classified sites and the many, many automation tools available. It’s possible to make well over $100/day – even automated.
5.) The “Super” Affiliate Marketer. No, I’m not talking about everyone’s favorite bloggers (cough). I’m talking about building a downline (2nd tier, 3rd tier, etc). Essentially people who sign up through your link for various affiliate networks or affiliate programs. I have to admit that this will certainly not be your fastest way to $100/day, but it’s a good little “side project” to keep going. Once a few heavy hitters are under you, you’ll see the effects. Have a friend who does very well in a certain niche? Get him to sign up under you and test the offers at your network – he just might like it better.
Can it be scaled? The more people sign up through your link, the more you’ll make (provided they make money).
