How Does an Internet Marketer Earn Money?

By Eric

July 25, 2021

There are so many ways to earn money as an Internet marketer, and the great thing is – you don’t have to pick just one! You can start with one and begin adding more on over time.

Service providing is a good way to get started online as a marketer. You can work for others and learn as you do it. You can do admin tasks like answering customer service emails, queue their blog posts up for publication, ghostwrite for them, make graphics, and recruit affiliates.

However, there are only so many hours in the day, so if you choose this business model, there will be a ceiling on what you can earn. Even if you raise your rates, you’ll eventually max out at what the market is willing to pay.

Affiliate marketing is a business model where you’re acting as the middleman between vendors or companies and the consumers who need their products. Whether it’s for tangible or digital products, you can earn money when people buy through your link.

You can choose a niche topic that has both – such as MREs (meals ready to eat) and survival courses in that niche. Or, pick one or the other, like toys for the tangible niche or marketing for the digital one.

Info product creation is a good business model with endless earning potential. You can create a whole line of products that teach people things they want to know in the form of a downloadable eBook or video course.

One of the great things about this business model is that you can recruit an army of affiliates who go out there and send traffic to your offer, expanding your earning potential significantly.

Ad revenue is something that many people are going after online these days. Of course, if you have a list of subscribers, you could make money sending solo ads from other marketers.

But many people start YouTube channels or use social networking apps like Tik Tok to earn money as an Internet marketer now. Initially, the income might be low, but if you work on it and build some momentum, it can replace an offline income.

Private label rights (PLR) is content that some people create and sell to a number of other people so that they can use it as their own – on their blog, in email autoresponders, on social networks and more.

People create video, text and image-based PLR. It’s priced much cheaper than ghostwritten content, since it’s not exclusive, but the volume purchased makes up for the price difference.

Site or domain flipping is something that people can do to earn money online. You can purchase domains and flip them without adding anything to them. Or, you can build the site up with content, help it rise in the ranks of Google and then flip it to interested buyers.

Self-publishing is another business model you can pursue. You can publish non-fiction or fiction online on sites like Amazon and others where people can download the digital file or have a print copy sent from the company to read.

Eric is amazing to work with. He is quick, responsive and extremely patient. Eric is a true professional! I love that he takes something that I would view as complicated and makes it seem simple.
