Affiliate Marketing Internet Marketing Make Money Online

Top 10 Make Money Online Questions Answered

Recently Barry & I have had a lot of our subscribers ask many different variations of how to make money online.   Of course, its our pleasure to answer them privately in email as we really enjoy interacting with the DanBull Community!  What we decided to do was to take 10 of the most recent questions and post them here so everyone can benefit.


how to earn money online in zambia?

Whether you are in Zambia or Australia earning money online is fairly the same.  I’m not saying that living in Zambia doesn’t have its challenges, however the good news is that you can get started fairly easily as long as you have access to an internet connection and a computer.    If you are reading this then you are probably just getting started and trying to figure things out.

Affiliate marketing is a great way to get started as all you need to do is find people who are interested in other people’s products/services and connect them.   Through connecting buyers and sellers, sales will be generated, and you would make a commission on those sales ranging anywhere from 50% to 100% depending on the offer.   Some commissions are residual which means you will keep earning money month after month!

how to make money online via social media?

Social media is an awesome place to earn some side income or even a full-time income.  A lot of business owners realize the power of social media, however they don’t have the time or energy to really do it.  You can offer to handle their social media marketing for a monthly fee.

If you don’t know much about social media that is not a problem.  In fact, with a little bit of research and reading a couple blogs daily you will know more than most people and will be qualified to do social media marketing.   A great blog to read is Social Media Examiner and staying up to date on their articles will serve you well.

Also, there are a lot of tools out there that will automate most of the work you will be charging for.  For the things that can’t really be automated you can cheaply outsource to places like Fiverr and Upwork.

Let’s give a real example.

You have a client that is paying you $1,000/month to handle creating content and posting content.

To create the content

you can find various people on fiverr to create the graphics for you for $1/each.  So lets say you need 3 pieces of content/day that would be 90 total pieces of content which would cost you $100.

To schedule the content

to go out automatically you could use something like Agorapulse or SocialOomph depending on which platforms you are posting on.    Agora pulse would run you around $40/month and SocialOomph would run you around $20/month.

SocialOomph is awesome on twitter as it will automatically recycle the content so it puts it on autopilot.

Agorapulse has built in reporting features which will come in handy when you need to generate reports for your clients.

Total cost:  $150

Revenue: $1,000

Profit:  $850

So for a couple of hours work you just increased your monthly income by $850!    If you take on 10 clients that would be an income of $8,500 every month for less hours than a part time job would take you.

how to make money online with google?

If you are a beginner, then a good option would be diving into SEO or search engine optimization.  There are a lot of courses out there that teach this and a lot of videos on YouTube cover this as well.  Once you learn SEO then you can apply what you learn to help businesses with their SEO or you could start a website and generate traffic this way.   I would recommend the second option as offering SEO is some what competitive currently and if you are a beginner then it may be a little more difficult.

Once you start generating traffic to your website you can simply put up Adsense ads on your website to start earning money from the traffic.  It’s really that simple.  The key is to generate a decent amount of traffic which will take some time to build to.  Once you have the traffic the Adsense revenue becomes a passive income source for you.   All you need to work on is building more traffic as well as starting multiple sites for multiple income streams.

how to make money online if you are under 18?

If you are a minor, you can still earn money online.  Some of your options may be limited, however you can still earn money.  You may need to have your parents set you up with a paypal account or your own checking account.  Once you have those you can list gigs on fiverr or start affiliate marketing.  Some affiliate programs may not allow minors to promote, but you can definitely find some that will allow it.


If freelancing or affiliate marketing isn’t your speed, then you can always create some courses on something that you have knowledge about and list the courses on Udemy or Teachable.  I have seen a lot of teenagers do this and are making a decent income passively while they are in class!

how to make money online with zero capital?

Contrary to popular belief it doesn’t take money to make money online.  Granted investing money does help things go quicker, but it is not a requirement to make money online starting out.   If you are short on capital all you need to do is simply find some products or services to promote, get your affiliate link and start generating traffic to your link.    An easy method of doing this would be promoting these offers to your social media followers.  It does not cost you any money in advertising to have your social media followers see your posts.   They see the offer and if the product interests them they go through the link to buy and you earn a commission!

how to make money online selling clothes?


There are many options on where to sell clothes online but the logical place to start is where are you going to source the clothes from.  If you don’t have a steady supply of inventory, then you will not have a steady source of sales.  You need to have a supply in order to cash in on the demand.


A simple way to source clothes is hitting up garage sales toward closing time and ask them this simple question “how much for everything?”   In most cases they are wanting to get rid of it, instead of holding on to it, so they will give you a pretty awesome deal.  You would be surprised what $10 can buy when you ask this at the right time.   Personally, I’ve acquired boxes of clothes with this method.


Once you acquire the clothes you can put the clothes on ebay for lots of 3-5 items for $8-10 and watch the bids come in.    Do the math.  If you acquire 120 pieces of clothes for $10 and you list them in lots of 4 for $10 each then you are making $300 on a $10 investment.  That’s not too shabby for a little bit of work.


how to make money online using facebook?

There are a couple ways to make money online using Facebook.  The first option is to use Facebook to build your email marketing list and then promote offers to your list.  When your subscribers find a promotion interesting and make a purchase you make money.  It’s not incredibly hard to gain subscribers from Facebook and you don’t have to have a lot of connections to accomplish this.  You can join groups with a lot of members and post in the group offering them something of value in exchange for their email address.


You can also make money online using Facebook marketplace.  For this strategy you can find stuff people are giving away for free on Craigslist and Letgo and then list it on Facebook market place for a price.  When you get something for free, whatever you sell it for is pretty much pure profit.


how to make money online on Instagram?

Instagram is still relatively new in the social media world and as a result you can quickly become and influencer.  You can use engagement groups to quickly build a following.   Once you have a large enough following then you can offer to post other people’s content for a fee.  There are lot of people out there that spend a lot of money on influencer marketing on Instagram so why not cash in?

If you don’t have the patience to do influencer marketing then you can use your following and promote offers to them via your Instagram Stories.  When you cross 10,000 followers Instagram allows you to have a clickable link in your story.  This is huge as this will allow you to send traffic to your offers.

how to make money online graphic design?

If you have graphic design talents, you can become a freelancer on places like Fiverr and Upwork where people will pay you for doing graphic design jobs.   Fiverr is a great option starting out as all you have to do is list the service you are offering, and people will find you.  Starting out you may have to lower your price until you get a higher rating.

Upwork is another solid option and worth considering as you can pick up some longer-term jobs from people looking for a longer-term relationship.   It may take you longer to find this type of relationship, but in the long run this would generate a more consistent and steady stream of freelance work.

how to make money online cryptocurrency?

Outside of day trading a simple way to make money with cryptocurrency is faucets.  Basically, faucets are websites that allow you to earn free cryptocurrency on a regular basis.  Some of them give it away as soon as every 10 minutes while others give it away every day.

Another method to make money online with cryptocurrency is Micro tasking.  This is where you earn cryptocurrency for doing tasks like watching videos, filling out surveys and signing up for various services.

The last method through affiliate marketing.   Some companies will pay you a commission in cryptocurrency when sales are made through your affiliate link.  Also many ICOs that are coming out will pay you an affiliate bonus for people that invest through your affiliate link.

    Dear Dan,

    Thanks a lot for the helpful guide on making money online and I can tell you that I have taken some great insights from this post.

    Being a full-time blogger your post means a lot to me and as we all know information is wealth. I am doing a few things to earn money online but many of your ideas I need to implement. Also I am interested in focusing on cryptocurrency and social media.

    The ways you mentioned on making money using Social Media is an eye opener and I got great insights from it. And since cryptocurrency is making a lot of news I am planning to look into some ways to earn cryptocurrency as well.

    Thanks for the insightful and informative post.

    Much Success!

      Glad you found value Paul!

    That’s a lot of different methods to think about. I think the ones that would be most relevant to me are trying to make money with social media and SEO. Another way that I’ve seen that is pretty successful is making money by promoting products on YouTube. Have you had any experience with this?

    Hi Dan,

    You have 10 very great questions there.

    I think each one of those questions deserves it’s own post.

    I was once at a convention in USA and T Harv Eker was the speaker.

    “How to make $10,000,000 in 1 year?” he asked

    Then asked “if it took to 10 years to discover the answer would it be worth it?”

    We all agreed it would be worth it.

    I think the 10 questions you asked are similar. If it took you 1 year to answer them would it be worth it?

    Eker, then went on to say, “then stop wasting your time working on small projects and just spend your time answering that question!”

    Quite profound!

    If we take the time to answer your questions, life could be really improved for a lot of people.

    Great questions!

    I found this an informative article, thank you.  

    I admit, I’m still struggling to understand instagram.  I don’t find it intuitive to use but I linked it anyway to my Facebook page.  Love the idea about selling clothes; and earning from $0.  These are real suggestions that anyone can get started on.

    I’ll be bookmarking your page to keep up my online education! 🙂

  5. Dylan

    Hi Dan, you have targeted such a prevalent topic being sought after these days. You have offered insightful ways in which one can embark on this online money making journey and you show how anyone can do it. It was actually the first time I came across a site showing readers under 18 how they too can make money online. 

    Your suggestions of which tools can be used would be helpful as well. 

    The tip on how to make money without a capital is inspiring but isn’t it usually necessary to have an active website when signing up as an affiliate, or what are some examples of affiliate programs that allow you to use social media to promote their products?

    Hi there!

    Good read. I have been try to get a jom from fivrr as well but so far  not that many people ask fir my service yet. I guess I up my resume. I do have a website and try to write a good content to drive traffic as well. We will see how it goes, I get too busy with my full time job that I want to eventually leaves so I can work online, but I am taking a baby step since working online as a marketer is so challenging for me. I want to be like an instagram influencer but I have so self confidene lol. I guess I can still selling clothes on FB market place  if I am desperate for cash. Last time, I sold some import fruits from Thailand, I am telling that market place is the same as ebay without haveing to pay FB for the fee. (Yup i tried ebay as well lol) Soon I really hope I get really good at this so I can just only work online.

    DI an: THANKS SO MUCH for the informative post. I am a member of Wealthy Affiliate and I love it! Look forward every to the day to the lessons and the interaction.
    I have been selling on Ebay for many years. I made good money when I first started, but have been a little lazy lately.
    I have learned 2 things about ebay: 1. Not everything sells, no matter the quality or how good a deal you offer; then you are left with relists, which can add up. 2. Occasionally you will have a customer who threatens you with bad feedback and so you feel you have to give him a full refund. BUT if you work hard, write good descriptions, and have probably 20 or 20 items for sale, you can make money. I sell men’s Hawaiianshirts, only certain brands, and only large sizes. I find these sell the best. But I digress…
    Your post was so informative and so well written, that I think I will try some of these places that I have never heard of. I am retired and disabled, s I have time to work hard. Thanks again for a great article. you have help me !!

    Thank you. This is very helpful for me as a beginner. I’m not too familiar with cryptocurrencies, but something i may look into. I like the idea of buying stuff from garage sales and selling them online. I need to start using social media sooner than later though. I’m more familiar with facebook than instagram for now. Thanks again for sharing.

    This article has been very helpful. It answered many questions for me. I’m just starting a website and this will help me decide how to go about making money on it. I’m going through the Wealthy Affiliate program and haven’t decide where to go for money. The training is great but I’m taking  my time. I’ll probably read the a few times to help me. It helps that you page is easy to read and not a mess like some I’ve seen. Thank you.

    Hey Dan,

    8 of your 10 make money online tips could possibly work for me. I am not a minor and I do not have any place to store inventory so I am going to rule those 2 off of my list.

    The other tips that you recommend have potential to help me out. Social media, Google Seo, 0 capital, online graphic and bit coin would require a bit of homework for me but I think with a bit of work I might be able to do something with.

    I am also going to look at the wealthy affiliate link that you posted on your site to help me get started.

    Thanks for the information.

    Hey i really enjoyed your article, it was very informative.  I am trying different ways to make money online, i do use fiverr and i make some here and there from that.  My social media does not have a huge following yet to really benefit me, its complicated to be in the money makking niche with social media.  I need to get my motivation back and grind on writing more content for my website!

    Hi Dan,

    I really like your article.  You write about many options that I have thought of for marketing purposes, however I had not spent time figuring out how to specifically make it happen.  In just a few short sentences, for each section, you gave me information to get started in any of those directions.



    • Dan Shea

      entirely my pleasure TaN

  18. Cory Haasnoot

    Thanks for the informative article on making money online. You mentioned a few ideas for making money that I haven’t thought of and I’m going to give them a try as soon as I can. I enjoy writing and editing content that makes me money online. I will have to try the instagram way to make money I haven’t tried that one yet.

    • Dan Shea

      Instagram is a great place to make some extra cash.  

  19. Grace

    Hi Dan, at first glance I thought this would be another post about making money online doing survey, data entry etc but what you shared here is truly an eye opener to me!Automation and outsourcing is important in any business, and I am so glad to find all these info in your article. SocialOopmh sounds likes a gem, I will definitely try it when I set up my twitter account. I didn’t know about the perks of having 10,000 Instagram followers, I guess that is a target I should aim to achieve!Thank you for all the valuable information you have shared here!

    • Dan Shea

      entirely my pleasure grace!

  20. Strahinja

    Thank you for this informative and thorough article Dan. I really loved your list. I think your article is related to any part of the world and not just Zambia. I realised through my experience online that the best way to earn money on the Internet is the affiliate marketing.

    You do not need storage facilites, you do not need to make your own products – you only need to advertise the products for your vendor. And the commission is paid after purchase is made.

    This is something really good about this form of marketing.

    I appreciate your post.


  21. Rahye

    Wow, thanks for this detailed post, its hard to find posts like this on the web, what we find are people sharing links around without actually saying the truth the way it is.

    I am an affiliate marketer myself and i so understand everybody cannot be in the same trade then there would be no specialization. all the ideas you listed in this post here are 100% real and practicable unless there is no motivation to do it atall.

    Thanks again and have a wonderful one


    • Dan Shea

      thank you rahye!

  22. Euphrasia

    Your post is really insightful, coming from a developing nation specifically Zambia, it has not been easy to find ways of making money online. I appreciate the different techniques you have suggested. I will try them out. I have always had a struggle with instagram I was wondering how to make money with it, now I have an idea, thanks.

    • Dan Shea

      Glad you found value euphrasia!
