Hi Steve:

Very light and refreshing post about creating an income from home. I am very convinced with membership sites and I have planned it few times but never finalized. Today, I was looking at two different blog sites, with memberships, the lady was charging $20.00 per month. that looked like an easy to do project. I liked few more in this post. I think it is # 4 offering a web service is also my kind of thing.

Thanks for providing for for thought that might become action one day. I should say that has to become action soon.

Have an awesome Monday

There is certainly something to be said for all these methods. Running a subscription site and offering a web service are two really good ones you could implement on your site once you get the requisite expertise and followers.

I take advantage of #4. I am always creating links for businesses and also writing articles. It’s a great way to make some extra money. Also, your tutoring idea. I never thought to tutor online. That’s a fantastic idea! I tutor some kids on the side, at home or at the school, but I haven’t thought to check out online tutoring options! Thanks for the advise!

Steve Scott

Thanks Jasmine glad you liked it and I hope you certainly get some tutoring opportunities.

Offering a web service is a great paradigm for making money since so many people want to succeed but are so swamped time wise.

Hey Steve,

I too say that internet services (like link building, article writing…) have really taken of, actually the whole outsourcing business is doing really well, some people are making thousands of dollars with just creating a network of website and selling memberships to people so they can post on it.
Wp plugins are going strong too, but I think that there are a lot of free alternatives that really discourages people and it’s kind of hard to think of an idea for a great.

And ebooks translation is definitely a business i’ve seen lots of people doing, the bad thing is that they are doing it without the original authors conses.

Steve Scott

It is probably pretty hard for an author to catch on to someone translating their stuff and profiting. I know if I did find out though, It might be something I would actually pursue a lawsuit over. (I am not much on suing) But finding out might not be the likeliest thing. unfortunately.

Hopefully people would attribute and link for the free ebook and simply contact you and offer a small piece for the pay ones. Maybe I am niave, but it would seem like you wouldn’t have to give up too much money to be able to do it 100% legally.

Hi Steve,
Another excellent post in this series, thanks!

I agree with you about membership sites. They can be the most lucrative, IF you can sell memberships and keep the members onboard. I learned a lot from the first membership site I created, and now I’m about to release my second. You do have to overdeliver with the material to keep the subscribers, but I welcome the challenge of keeping them happy. 🙂

I think your #4, offering a service, is an excellent way for people to earn online, although it’s not passive income.

Systemizing these processes is really good advice!

Thanks,
Peggy

Steve Scott

You are right, membership sites need to have an active community and a lot of solid content. MOST people are not going to pay for nothing. It is definitely more of a endgame tactic. Unless you come into the internet as a credentialed “expert” on your niche, there is usually a lot of reputation building you need to do first.

Thanks for a great comment Peggy!

Peggy Baron

I was once told this: “Most membership sites are nouns, they should be verbs.” Meaning, make your membership site live and breathe and allow for human interaction and heart.

I like that!

Great post Steve!

I completely agree with you about membership sites. I have a couple ideas that I am working on, but as you say, it has to be a rockin site to keep people subscribed.

That is what I am still working on!

Steve Scott

Yup!

You also need to really have a strong reputation going in to get people to sign up in the first place. They are not an easy thing. Having a strong community helps though. I have seen a few semi-successful membership sites where the people did not offer too much, but a very interactive community might make it worthwhile all by itself.

“Great Scott! Now that’s a lot to take in”

I have been here reading lately but I’m on my laptop in the kitchen and everytime I go to comment my Wifi dies in the arse… anyway (as we speak kids are building a ‘playground’ on the floor with blocks while my daughter tries to bash the keys as i type!! AAAAGH Stop it Adelaide!

anyway, great post as always mate – and I am definitely directing all my efforts to the idea of an eventual membership site – but you provided a great list as well as some points on the ‘eality check’ you can expect each time.

Steve Scott

Gotta hate that wifi dieing! I feel for you!

Good luck on your coming (eventually) membership site. That will rock!

Hello Steve,

Congratulations on this fantastic informative article. I found here the best informations on how to earn internet income, I was looking a very long time for a great walkthrough like this one written by you. Thank you very much for sharing it!

Best regards,

Maria

Steve Scott

Thanks Maria,

I appreciate the comment and I am glad you liked it! have a great day!

Sheila Atwood

Steve,
I am sad too. And I really appreciate this post. It right on with the direction I think we need to take. That is to have a product or service you can sell.

I like #7 and #8 they are right down my alley. I have several plugin ideas. You know the ones that come up when you are working and you say I would love it if…

I also have a couple of business in a box ideas. My partner just completed a survey and is working on one.

As always – great stuff.

Shane Ryans

Steve, This is great stuff! Just one idea after another. I like translate e-book services would never had thought of that one. Thanks.

Hey Steve,

I did read this post earlier while on the move but couldn’t come around to leave a comment on it.

You smashed this topic big time, and I’m eager to see what is still yet to come in the last part. I wouldn’t be surprised if you say you got still one more to go after that. LOL!

Never thought about translating eBooks. But I don’t think it’s for me either. The first business model is certainly for me, and I’m looking forward to dive into it.

Cheers,
Mark

Steve Scott

Yup …one more. then I think I will be all done. Already written and in the bag. But of course, maybe i will find some more in a few months and come up with a “special report” or something. But I have exhausted everything I can think of for now.

Andy

“Out of all the ways to make money online, THIS is the most profitable.” – I agree.

I know of one membership website owner that was making $50,000 a month within four years of launching her site.

I am, in fact setting up a paid membership area on one of my music resource website, where music teachers will be able to add their teacher profile to advertise for music students. With thousands of teachers currently maintaining active accounts on other teacher directories, and often listed their services on multiple directories, the potential for developing a full-time income from this new addition alone in the first year seems entirely possible.

An added advantage…

These teachers will be paying me an annual fee to add content to my site. It’s a win-win thing for me and them. They will find students for a nominal fee, and I will increase the size of my site (Google has outwardly said that they favor large, well-established sites) and be constantly adding fresh content through no effort of my own. Woo hoo!

Steve Scott

Andy,

That sounds like an awesome idea and really great potential. Really win-win, just like you say. I would say “good luck” but sounds like you have it in the bag with a well thought out site and strategy!

Earl Heflin

Eye-opening stuff Steve. I particularly like the idea of translating ebooks. This strikes me as a very important service. One could use Fivver to outsource for really cheap. Good stuff. I’m retweeting

Earl Heflin
