Videos – This could be an entire section on it’s own. Many people have made money by creating YouTube videos. Evan of EvanTube is a kid and he has made millions by creating reviews of products that other kids his age would use. It’s not easy to get views into the millions, but once you do, you’ll start seeing some cash come in. Many bloggers have completely turned to videos to get their point across by starting a video blog.
Alright, what I said in step one was misleading (it wouldn’t be the first time so stop complaining). After you have decent income coming in every month, you need to save at least some of it. How much? It all depends on how fast you want to become a millionaire. There’s no right or wrong answer. No pain, no gain my friend.
I need to be more regular in my donating / giving so I wanted to tie a specific dollar amount that I’m looking to accomplish. I know it’s kind of odd that I’m including this goal in a blog post as most people are pretty private about what they give to charity, but it’s on my white board so I guess it’s on the blog post lol. Throughout this year I will occasionally release products or software and state in the sales material that (for example) the first $5,000 purchased worth of how to become a millionaire as a programmer software will be going directly to Charity Water. Continuing with charity water as an example, after I would reach that sales figure I’d then make a donation to a Charity Water campaign as well just to prove that I was actually making the donations. You’d have to be pretty evil to say you were going to donate money and not actually do it though.
Sounds simple, but it is not. Because this seemingly simple process involves (surprise-surprise!) selling too. Hey! It’s the whole science, called copywriting. People spend years and decades to master it.

Another friend found a burger bar, which served chilli burgers. He had never tasted these before and loved the taste of the chilli sauce. So he got in touch with the supplier, and supplied them with bottles and lables, and started taking orders from restaurants world-wide, through a little (very little) marketing savvy. He started 2 years ago and is now about to be bought out for over 1.2 million.

For example My Millionaire Mentor sales video is full of fake testimonials. It’s quite sad because MOBE does actually have real testimonials yet My Millionaire Mentor is using fake ones from Fiverr. I know that they are fake reviews because I did some research and found the people who are in the sales video selling fake testimonials for $5. So why if this system is real do they need to use fake testimonials and ridiculous earnings claims?
After determining the market value of your product or idea, the next thing to do is to appraise its monetary value. No one is going to hand out millions of dollars to you for your idea when you don’t even know what your idea is worth. MsDos was sold by some programmers to Bill Gates for $50,000; and Bill Gates went on to become a billionaire with the same idea. Now how did Bill Gates achieve such a feat? How did he build a billion dollar company from a simple idea? The answer lies in intellectual property protection.
If you hanging around the negative or broke people you will also become that. Keep in mind you always want to be good to your friends no matter where they are in life, see the good in them no matter what. I am not telling you to drop your broke friends. I’d like to encourage you to always seek to spend more time with others who uplift you, motivate you and have what you would like to achieve.
Get paid for your opinions. Taking surveys online can be a relatively quick way to earn enough to afford a few extras. Harris Poll Online, for example, awards points for the completion of online surveys, which can take between five and 25 minutes to fill out. Survey takers accumulate points and can redeem them for gift cards from retailers such as Amazon and Starbucks. Other online outfits that will pay you to take surveys include SurveyClub, Global Test Market and Swagbucks. There’s no cost to sign up.
Failure is inevitable. Humans and business are imperfect. Failure is feedback and opportunity. Fail, but fail early before you invest more than you must or before you compromise your brand. Bezos was interviewed by his brother at Los Angeles’ Summit 2017 where he stated that at the age of 30 he recognized failure was okay but trying was not.
This list is not exhaustive, but it should help create some momentum and spur creative thinking on how to grow your business. While it is true that some of these tips may be applied more readily to some businesses than others, those that appear most foreign to your industry could be most valuable as it is less likely that one of your competitors has used them.
The reason the figure is higher than what you paid is because ON AVERAGE each signup will be worth say $150 (due to the big up-sells that are offered to you after purchase) so they can afford to pay people a higher amount than the initial sale just to get you into the system itself.
Create your business model. Your business model must be either high fidelity or high convenience. If it’s high fidelity you will have fewer customers who will pay a lot. You need 100 customers at $10,000 each to make $1 million. If it’s high convenience you will have many customers paying you small amounts. You need 100,000 customers paying you $10 each to make $1 million.
According to the FTC, the essential meaning of a testimonial must come from a customer and the original testimonial must be on file. The FTC does allow a business to edit a testimonial but not to change the meaning of it. The FTC also allows actors to be used to represent an actual customer. However, it is illegal to fabricate a testimonial.
Don’t online marketers know that when they show the luxury lifestyle through cars, yachts, mansions and wealth, that it is a red flag to SCAM … but it sure is enticing to newbies who have not learnt to google businesses before they put their money into it. I sure hope that when they do that they find your article. By the way, I have also seen that actor before – infact I am sure I used him once to act out a “Happy Birthday” video for my friend – LOL, what a laugh
I think the ultimate way to become a millionaire is to EARN MORE and DESIRE LESS. Earning more increases your income i.e. (taking a second job, investing your money, buying assets that provide passive income, etc.) while desiring less lessens your spending (i.e. budgeting, frugality, etc.)
Ugh this MOBE thing is behind so many things! It’s not fair because they pray on people that are already low on money! I would have fallen for it because of the initial price and then given in to more money spending because I already spent that initial money. Thank you for the heads up on these gross people. They are so annoying, will look into that other one you mentioned though
The health app AchieveMint gives you points for being healthy and doing things like walking, tracking your food, or taking health surveys. You earn points which can be redeemed for cash or Amazon Gift Cards. For every 10,000 points, you earn $10 and there is no limit on your earnings.
Some people argue that you can make money without a lot of traffic and while that is true in some circumstances, you will generally need a lot of website traffic to start earning from a blog and that takes a while. Once you’ve reached that point, here are the primary ways to monetize your blog and start earning:
The key to success with eBooks is to create value, and write non-fiction. Simply bundling information you have researched and complied on a common problem (eg. ‘secrets’ to finding a job) and then presenting it in an easy to digest format (an eBook) justifies someone spending a few quid on it.
“I’ve always been big on investing [in myself]. Even in my previous businesses it’s been a lot of me putting in the cash into my business. I invested in my site. I invested in a copywriter to teach me how to make copy. I invested in someone to teach me how to make sales calls.
Familiarize yourself with savings. If you’re used to maxing out the credit card and not saving much, you’re going to find it hard to become a millionaire at any stage in your lifetime. Begin by opening a savings account purely for keeping aside money and add to it regularly. This should be different from your every day savings account that you use to draw bill payments from and it should preferably be one that has a higher interest rate than your usual savings account options.
Is it something you have the skills for? If you don’t know anything about accounting except that the figures are supposed to balance, you probably don’t want to set up your own accounting business. You can always learn, of course, but your learning curve will affect the timetable for your financial plan.
It might not sound like a lot of money, but when you have thousands of people who buy this scam, the amount of money will add up to millions! I guess this is the main reason why “scammers” like this John Doe guy do this kind of things. This is really an “ugly” way to make money and a good example of how the rich get richer and it is always the completely uneducated who makes them rich.
Over the following months, I kept a close eye on what he was doing and it was easy for me to see that he was messing up the paid campaigns that I had built, but was still clearly making a ton of money. The search engine optimization (SEO) work to help him rank higher on Google for a number of popular searches ended up helping him for a long time until his website one day disappeared. I estimate the work I did for him made him at least $5 million, but I still made a little over $200,000. Still a super solid return on my time.
Thanks so much for this informative post! I have been trying to find a way to work from home ever since my son was born in 2003 and I just haven’t found the right fit yet. I’ve dabbled in the VA thing and sold a few things on ebay. I am actually now starting a business (in its very early stages), but I would love to write articles for magazines as well.
Yet Tepper was also shrewdly betting that the government would never play hardball with the big banks. Washington, he sensed, would not nationalize these failing banks, a move that would wipe out its shareholders. No, he saw that the political establishment was too afraid of another Great Depression—and of spooking global markets—to risk letting the big banks fail. Besides, the government ‘s perceived interests had become completely entwined with Wall Street’s. The revolving door between Wall Street and Washington was spinning fast, with all of the key economic positions in both the Bush and the Obama administrations held by Wall Streeters.
When it comes to money, there are three types of people. Those who are happy with an average income and a safe, secure job, but ambitious; those who are a bit entrepreneurial and will take some calculated risk in order for the potential to enjoy limitless income; and there are those who have no goals at all and just assume life will take care of itself.
Just as there are so many different companies that offer domain registration, there are possibly even more than offer web hosting.
