It doesn’t happen that way.

Look at it as a map, a signpost, a direction.

It doesn’t matter where you build it.

1. Sell training online

Selling online training is the holy grail of web entrepreneurs. Why? because:

  • You control sales prices and terms of sale (we will see in the following methods that this is not always the case)
  • Your margin is huge because as it is a digital product, production costs you almost nothing
  • The e-learning sector is growing rapidly. You have to position yourself on that, that is the future!

How do we do that?

I thought it would be easier for you to tell about it in the video. So in the video below you will find the whole process of making a website and selling a product!

However, creating and selling e-learning training is not perfect.

You will need time already. You need to start by creating an interested audience (it’s been a long time). And then you have to create the content (and that’s a long time).

Then, training vendors sometimes have a bad reputation. They are often called scammers and dream sellers. There are, yes, but most are honest and have the right skill to convey.

Be sure to be one of them.

Finally, opening a website and creating a distance learning course costs money and requires some technical skills (at least more than the methods below). You will need to master several marketing tools to offer your students a professional experience and connect your means of payment.

To guide you through this jungle of web marketing and set up an amazing website, I wrote an article summarizing the 13 tools I use for my own online training.

2. Use advertising to make money on the web

Let’s move on to the most famous way to make money on the web: advertising.

The most famous, certainly, but by no means the most profitable of the web merchants. On the contrary.

Understand: you will receive an average of € 0.10 for 1000 views. If you want to earn € 1,500 a month, you need … 15 million visitors a month. Only that.

Unless you have a site like Le Monde, you won’t get there right away (if you have one at all).

Examples of advertisements found on the Journal Le Monde website

A little clarification: this business model is only valid when you can insert ads, so a priori only on your websites, blogs and YouTube. You really, for example, have no control over the code of your Instagram page.

How to put you there?

You need traffic. Lots of traffic. So create content that is engaging.

You can insert Google Adsense codes into your virtual store to distribute advertising.

If you go through YouTube, you can monetize your channel in a few clicks (provided you meet certain criteria).

3. Create an online partnership business

Belonging is a big unknown in online business. It is the sale of someone else’s product or service to earn a commission from the sale. You are like an independent seller, but the internet version.

Affiliation is an online business technique in which an affiliate sells a product or service to an end customer.

Again, you have to start by creating an audience. And if possible, a niche of the audience (in a certain niche, in a certain topic).

You will then promote products that may be of interest to your community by sending them to a personalized distance link. It is this personalized link that will allow the seller to count your results.

When I started working in partnership, I followed Emma’s small video course, which I recommend. You will find a link for free registration in the useful resources at the bottom of this article.

Tip: You can use affiliation from the beginning to create your audience. How? By inserting between seller and buyer.

4. Write sponsored articles for e-commerce business

Last but not least, sponsored articles on websites (or sponsored posts if you’re on social media).

What is it ? An advertiser (brand) pays you to write content that promotes it.

You can do this by directly surveying the companies you are interested in or by registering on networking platforms (such as Seeding Up or Victoria Talents).

This is a method widely used on Instagram, Snapchat or YouTube, for example. If you are interested in this functioning, I recommend Magalie Berdah’s book that deals with influence. It may seem easy at first glance, but it gives very relevant information! The link is in the resources at the bottom of the article.

Examples of a sponsored instagram post, a sponsored article, or a sponsored video for online business

Here again you have to have a specialized audience upstream. Indeed, the price at which you sell your sponsored content depends largely on the number of people reached with this content. The larger and more specific your audience, the more you charge.

Personally, this is the method I like the least, because you are obviously selling your time for money. You do not benefit from the leverage effect to create a profitable business. This business model limits you to 24 hours a day. That’s not my idea of ​​e-commerce.

Useful resources for creating an online business

Note: (special web store) learning how to create a niche website and then managing its content to have good natural references from search engines is essential for creating an e-commerce store.

Indeed, properly referencing your new SEO merchant website is a marketing strategy that will bring unlimited potential customers to your ecommerce blog.
