10 Easy Ways to Immediately Profit From Your Online Business

How to Make Money Right Away By Selling on Your Website

1. eBooks

Selling my knowledge through eBooks was my first successful product launch online. I’ve since written a few more eBooks and they’ve all sold in some way, making each product a valuable part of my income strategy.

2. Video Presentations

If you’re more comfortable talking to a camera or are working in a niche where it’s easier to “show” than “tell” then creating a video presentation is easy.

3. In-Depth Courses

This is basically the same idea as video presentations, just more in-depth. This requires more planning and is designed to be longer.

4. Consultation and Coaching

This is probably the easiest thing to start with if you are an in-demand expert. You don’t really have to create a product or prepare any materials. You just have to coach and give advice to the people who ask for it.

5. Services

This is similar to consulting and coaching but it requires you to do more work. Usually, your services are tied to some sort of deliverable, like a website if you’re a web developer, an article if you’re a writer or a logo if you’re a designer.

6. Ads

This is the ugliest way you can monetize your website. However, you shouldn’t dismiss it entirely if you can make it fit.

7. Sponsored Posts

This is something I don’t have particular experience with but I do know it works.

9. Interviews With Experts

Although you can probably find all the experts you need in all the millions of podcasts available to everyone it’s easy to get overwhelmed with the sheer amount of options out there.

10. Physical Products

Any of the virtual products above can be repackaged as physical products. Sell courses as DVDs, eBooks as paperbacks, interviews as CDs. I wouldn’t recommend it because the manufacturing and shipping eat into your profits.

Conclusion

Those are the 10 ideas off the top of my head. I’m sure there are a lot of other ways you can make money through your website, and I’d love to hear about any ideas you might have.
