Make money with a website
The best way to make money online is to have a website that generates income all day every day, even when you’re sleeping.
A money making website can be a general website or a blog, but it doesn’t really matter what it’s called since it’s all pretty much the same now a days.
An online website is the best way for women to make money online because it is a business you will 100% own and you can run it however you want. You have full control and the amount of money you make is entirely up to you.
How do websites make money?
Websites make money in several ways, however two really popular ways are affiliate marketing and advertisements. If you’re new to these words don’t worry. They are actually really simple to understand.
Affiliate marketing is when you recommend a product to your reader and when the reader buys the product, you get a commission. This commission can be small, like a few dollars, or it can be big, like a course, that can pay you $50 or $100.
Advertisements is the easiest way to monetize your website. You’ve for sure seen them. They are simply ads on blogs or websites, and they can be text ads or a picture. Whenever someone clicks on one of those ads, you get paid. You can get paid a few cents to a few dollars for a click.
The best thing about making money with a blog is that you can talk about things you love to talk about and have passion for and make money from it.
It takes work and dedication to run a blog and make money from it. So if you’re up for it, click here to learn how to make money blogging.
Make money on Instagram
Instagram is a goldmine of opportunity to make money.
You can start a small business being an Instagram influencer.
What an influencer does is essentially be a personal brand about something and then promote other peoples products and services.
For example, if you love to travel, you can be a travel Instagram influencer. Hotel will pay you money and give you a free stay at their place in exchange for you posting photos of their hotel. Same goes for a tour company, where they will pay for you to go on one of their tours, and you need to post photos of you on their tour.
There are other ways to make money on Instagram, but being an influencer is a big way and one of the most important ways women can make money on Instagram.
Instagram is incredible because anyone can get started on it and your income potential can be enormous.
It’s all about growing your followers and having an audience to show and influence to. Once you have this, you should be able to make tens of thousands of dollars, if not more. A lot of people Instagram full time and make a killing on it ($100,000 and more a year).
Now, Instagram, like everything else online, is competitive and you will need to work hard at becoming an influencer. There is tons of space for people who are willing to put in the work. Imagine traveling the world doing cool stuff and posting photos of you doing it, and making money from it. That’s incredible!
Make money on Youtube
Youtube is another goldmine of opportunity to make money.
The most popular way to make money on Youtube is to use Youtube ads. People click on these ads. It’s as simple as that.
So in order to get a lot of clicks, you’ll need a lot of visitors to your videos! The great thing about Youtube is that you can make videos on ANYTHING! As long as people have an interest in watching them, you can make money!
Youtube is also a competitive place, however there is room for people who want to work hard. Starting a small Youtube business where you create videos and grow your subscriber and audience base is incredibly rewarding and potentially lucrative.
You can also promote affiliate products on Youtube and also send customers to your blog for more information where you can sell them other things in order to make money as well. This is a popular way Youtubers are also making money on this platform.
As a female, you can make a ton of cash on Youtube talking about all sorts of things and making videos on all kinds of topics. It could be make up or funny cat videos. Anything goes, as long as people are interested in watching, you have the potential to make money.
Make money with photography
Photography is perhaps the best hobby to make money from, especially as a small business idea for women.
Photography can be done anywhere and about anything. It’s income potential is incredible.
You can make money by selling your photos to stock websites, making prints and selling, or combine your photography skills with growing your Instagram account to make money that way too.
You can also do photography as a small business by running your own wedding photography business, doing mini sessions for people and families, senior portraits, or be a freelance photographer taking photographs of all sorts of things.
Photography is like music in that it will never go away. There is always an opportunity to make money with photography as long as you are willing to work hard.
If you like photography and have a passion for it, I HIGHLY recommend you step up your game and really get into it. There is nothing more fun than pursuing your passions. It’s incredibly rewarding and when you start making money from it, you are really living the dream!
Make money creating courses
Making courses on topics that you are familiar and have knowledge about is one of the most lucrative ways to make money as a small business owner.
In fact, it is probably the best way to make money with a small business.
You see, creating courses on important topics people want to get better and learn things from can make you a lot of money because you can charge hundreds of dollars per course. If you just got a few sign up a day, you are making bank!
For example, you could teach people how to make money with photography. The ideal way to do this is to create your own website, funnel readers and people who are interested in photography to your website, and then promote your photography course, through email marketing is probably the best way.
And from that, you will sell courses. And the more you sell the more money you’ll make.
Photography is just an example.
You can make courses on ANY topic people want to learn from. You want to ask yourself what you have expertise in first.
I really recommend creating courses.
It comes down to having your own website to sell the course!
But if you don’t want to do that, you can also host your course on online learning platforms like Udemy or Skillshare. These two are incredibly popular online learning platforms. They will take a cut of what you sell, but it takes a lot of the marketing work off your shoulders as they have the platform ready for you, and have students who are already interested in learning stuff perusing courses to take on the daily.
