Making money online is a matter of finding an audience who you can either advertise to or receive direct payment from. Either way, you need something interesting or informative with which to catch and hold your readers' attention. Your content is everything.
I'll show you how you can make money presenting
and distributing content via podcast or a newsletter, and how you can connect directly with your audience as an online tutor.
Getting Paid To Podcast
To create a podcast, you will need a microphone and some recording software. If you have a camera, you can also produce video podcasts.
You can download a free recording program from audacity.sourceforge.net, where you will also find tutorials on the technical side of podcasting.
When you have the content and are able to produce good quality podcasts, you need listeners. You can find them by submitting your podcast to directories such as podcastalley.com, promoting it through a website or blog, or advertising in forums and newsletters.
The bigger your market, the better. Don't be afraid of competitive markets, they're big for a reason--they pay and people are listening!
You will then be able to make money by finding a sponsor who is willing to pay to reach your listeners. You could find your own advertisers, or join a podcasting network such as podtrac.com.
If your content is desirable enough, you can charge for access to it, through services such as iTunes (apple.com/itunes). If you are selling your podcast, however, it is a good idea to create a free content version too in order to reach new listeners.
How To Get Paid To Publish Online Newsletters
Even if you prefer the written word to audio podcasting, you will still need to take care of some technical details.
The best way to distribute newsletters is through an autoresponder list service. These can be set up to automatically deliver pre-written emails to subscribers at set intervals. Each new subscriber will receive all of the emails in your predetermined sequence. That means you can load up a year's worth of content (or more), and it'll
automatically publish straight to your subscribers' email boxes without you touching it again!
A free autoresponder can be downloaded from responders.com, while a more professional program can be bought from aweber.com. These programs will also help with managing your subscriber list, so you stay spam compliant.
A successful newsletter will be attractive, easy to read, and compatible with different computers and internet browsers. You can create beautiful PDF documents using a free program such as openoffice.com.
Also, you do not have to create all your own content. You can get free stock photos and articles from sites such as
publicdomainimages.net and ezinearticles.com. You can also pay for pre-written content from sites like associatedcontent.com.
Email newsletters are perfect for marketing your own products, if you are running an online business. You can also make money by selling space to advertisers or even charging for subscriptions.
By using the tools from services such as aweber.com, you can grow your online newsletter list to hundreds or even thousands of people.
Get Paid To Teach People All Over the World
If you have knowledge and experience to share then you can do so in a podcast or newsletter, or by writing content for a site such as demandstudios.com, who will pay for articles.
Alternatively, you can become an online tutor and communicate directly with students through video chat and email. You could find your own students by advertising your services on craigslist.org, or join a company who will pair you up with suitable learners.
In order to get the best jobs, you may need some relevant qualifications, such as a degree, proven experience in a particular field, or a teaching certificate of some kind.
Websites that recruit online teachers include universalclass.com, mytutor24.com, and tutor.com.
Wiziq.com has a teacher directory where you can describe yourself and potential students can find you.
