Understand how a niche website works. A niche website focuses on very targeted, specific information. The content must be specific, useful and interesting to your target audience. Successful niche websites get anywhere from 1,000 to 10,000 visitors per month. You build content on a particular keyword, and you make passive income with Google Adsense or through affiliate links.
Many people fancy themselves as designers. If you have a unique idea for a new product then it may be time to get it designed. This can be a long process involving prototypes, discussions with factories, package design, and much more. However, the profits once the product is on the market could be substantial. And remember, with Amazon FBA, your products can all be stored and shipped by Amazon, giving you time to think up your next invention.

Don’t be scared to try different things, because the Google search algorithms regularly changing and you can’t say; what goes right with one audience or with one social networking site might not work well with another. The better news is that you can still earn enough from your content as it is demonstrated by many bloggers who publish their monthly income report online. You just have to be open to keep changing and testing your current methods till you get succeeded.
(A quick Google search shows confusion and disagreement on the difference between native advertising and sponsored content. Some bloggers draw a distinction between the direct promotion in native advertising versus what may be valuable, less promotional information in corporate-sponsored content. Setting aside the head-scratching, it's clear there's more than one way to host paying advertisers and their content on your site.)
If you're looking to address some immediate financial needs, then the app economy is likely right for you. Thanks to the global sharing phenomenon, launched in part by our smartphones and ever-burgeoning global connectivity, you could easily opt for some quick active income by using well-known apps. From ride sharing to deliveries and even quick tasks, there's an app for that today, as the saying goes.
Sites like Share-A-Sale and Amplifinity provide referral fees. Vendors set the referral fees they're willing to pay and for what services.

Find a profitable niche: We’ve talked about this a lot. But, where are you most comfortable. What niche do your skills, values, and interests intersect? Do you have 10 years of experience as a technical writer? Do you have long-standing PR relationships that’ll be invaluable in helping startups launch a successful crowdfunding campaign? Determine what makes your value unique, and lean heavily on showcasing that strength to your potential clients.
It is acceptable to make micro niche website but only if you can offer content that it is not possible to find elsewhere. If you are writing a post about “how to make money” it will never ever rank on Google because there are millions of articles about this topic written before. However, you can get much more creative and write your article titled “how to make money from birch syrup”. Most likely no one has ever covered this topic and being first is a huge advantage. Another option is to offer better content than anyone else. We can use the same “how to make money” article as an example. if you write another post 500 words long it will never get noticed by Google. But you can be more creative and make a huge study out of it and write a 10,000+ long article with graphics, images, spreadsheets and much more. That way you dramatically increase your chance for getting noticed by Google. Writing articles like these will take you several weeks or even months but it’s doable.
Every year, hundreds of millions of documents are notarized in the United States: wills, mortgages, citizenship forms, handgun applications. While for decades, this has all been done in person, there is a budding crop of sites that allow notaries to take their services online. If you’re already a notary, you can sell your services online. Or, if you want to get started, check out the National Notary’s checklist for becoming a certified notary.
Whether it’s an important consumer application, a specialist app to solve a particular niche problem, or even a time-wasting game you can play on your phone, you can create a massively successful business if you build software that helps people. (Look at the rise of Slack—the team communication software that went from side project to billion-dollar company in just 2 years.)
If you love to travel and find yourself randomly searching for airfare sales or browsing Lonely Planet, why not carve out a niche for yourself as a private travel agent? My friend, Mark Jackson did just that, making extra money online with his travel consulting side business. Start with word of mouth recommendations from friends who know they can count on you for the cheapest flights, and then move on and create a Facebook or LinkedIn group to invite people who want to stay on top of the latest deals. Eventually you could spin this into a full-time consultancy teaching people how to make their dream trip a reality.
Many themes does generate numerous thumbnails that’s why I recommend to use get a hosting with at least 1GB of storage for a very small websites. I don’t know any hosting that would offer so tiny storage any more. Thumbnails are not a bloat because it doesn’t slow down your website in any way as images, once generated, aren’t touched by WordPress unless they are called by user. It is much better solution that generate images each time they are requested.
This may not be what you have in mind if you're starting a small, cottage-industry website, and the idea of making millions selling your site to a big Internet player may be little more realistic than planning an NBA career. Bear in mind, however, that Yahoo! started as a web guide. What Laurel Touby started in the late 90s as, in her words, "a humble little directory on someone else's website" grew into MediaBistro.com, a freelance writer-focused networking site that she sold for $23 million in 2007.
You have already made this mistake and there is no way to go back but you can still turn your website into a successful business but it is going to be much harder than before. You need to create a proper content strategy for your blog. Now you have published random articles that are not related to one another. You have to keep your articles around the same topic and link from one article to another to keep your users engaged. Also make sure to write a more unique articles because ones that you have written now can be found on thousands of other blogs with different phrasing but the same idea. For new bloggers it’s really difficult because you have to either write about subjects that no one have covered before or write a much longer article. Not just make your articles long and useless but provide valuable content such as research, scientific data and other things that can’t be found elsewhere. It’s not easy but there is no other way to get started in so competitive niche with so short keywords. It just won’t work.
This monetization method is low-cost and low-risk. It’s never been easier to start writing an e-book, publishing it and making money from it. No additional costs for printing the books and publishing them. All can be done online, on your own website. And you charge a fee for the download link and collect e-mail addresses (for future follow-up and e-books upselling) monetizing this way your website. You can even gather past blog articles, give them a coherent structure and provide them to the public in the form of an e-book.
Work remotely for a call center. Because many call center jobs are location independent, finding work in this field is an easy way to earn some money from home. Dozens of sites list job openings for call-center representatives, including Freelancer.com and SimplyHired.com. Meanwhile, you should check local job listings for openings and opportunities as well.
It is possible to make money within your first few months (I did) but ultimately you need to give yourself at least 6-12 months to build something solid when it comes to website marketing. Anything worth achieving takes time and effort. You can get quicker results if you have a lot of money to burn on paid traffic, but I really do mean a lot of money to burn.
Need more ideas on how to make money online? Another strategy is using webinars to market your product, service, or course. I’ve done webinars to promote my financial planning practice and to drum up interest in my online course for financial advisors. With a webinar, you’re basically offering a lot of tips and advice for free — usually in a live format. At the end though, you pitch your paid product or service with the goal of securing a few deals.
