00:00:00 00:00:04 so maybe you're sick of wanting ties to
00:00:02 00:00:06 work every week
00:00:06 00:00:10 or maybe your boss is just a little bit
00:00:08 00:00:10 too much like one of these guys right
00:00:10 00:00:12 here
00:00:10 00:00:13 whatever the reason is doesn't really
00:00:12 00:00:14 matter what matters is that you're
00:00:13 00:00:16 looking to start an
00:00:14 00:00:18 online business and you don't have a lot
00:00:16 00:00:21 of cash to get started
00:00:18 00:00:23 so this video is the seven best online
00:00:21 00:00:24 business ideas for 2021 that you can use
00:00:23 00:00:26 to make money
00:00:24 00:00:27 while not having to invest a lot of
00:00:26 00:00:29 money into the business
00:00:27 00:00:30 now idea number one is called kindle
00:00:29 00:00:33 direct publishing or
00:00:30 00:00:36 kdp and what this is is it's actually
00:00:33 00:00:38 writing books that can go on to amazon
00:00:36 00:00:39 now you don't have to have a crazy
00:00:38 00:00:41 amount of experience and you don't have
00:00:39 00:00:44 to be a great writer for this to work
00:00:41 00:00:45 you can even write children's books that
00:00:44 00:00:48 are 10
00:00:45 00:00:50 20 30 words long in total basically the
00:00:48 00:00:52 size of a tweet
00:00:50 00:00:53 and you can still do fine with this so
00:00:52 00:00:54 if you look on the camazon
00:00:53 00:00:56 on the amazon kindle store you can see
00:00:54 00:00:58 that there's hundreds and hundreds of
00:00:56 00:01:00 categories there's sub categories
00:00:58 00:01:02 there's a ton of places
00:01:00 00:01:04 and you can place books you can sell
00:01:02 00:01:08 books for anywhere from 1.99
00:01:04 00:01:10 to 10 20 30 now the key here is to
00:01:08 00:01:11 choose a niche and to go go as deep as
00:01:10 00:01:13 you can so you're obviously not going to
00:01:11 00:01:14 rank you know for the best
00:01:13 00:01:15 entrepreneurship book on the internet
00:01:14 00:01:16 probably
00:01:15 00:01:18 but you can write a book for a very
00:01:16 00:01:20 small subsection of entrepreneurship
00:01:18 00:01:21 maybe a book about how to
00:01:20 00:01:23 make youtube videos or something else
00:01:21 00:01:24 that you're an expert at
00:01:23 00:01:27 and you can start getting sales
00:01:24 00:01:29 organically every single day from amazon
00:01:27 00:01:30 using a book you can even go onto
00:01:29 00:01:31 fiverr.com and you can order
00:01:30 00:01:32 illustrations for this book you can
00:01:31 00:01:34 order really cool
00:01:32 00:01:36 children's book illustrations or you can
00:01:34 00:01:37 order you know like more more adultish
00:01:36 00:01:39 illustrations like these
00:01:37 00:01:41 and honestly if you're in a lot of
00:01:39 00:01:42 categories you don't even need to have
00:01:41 00:01:44 illustrations you just need to be able
00:01:42 00:01:46 to give them information
00:01:44 00:01:48 now obviously amazon is going to take a
00:01:46 00:01:49 small cut of every book sold but that's
00:01:48 00:01:51 the right because they're the one that's
00:01:49 00:01:52 bringing new traffic and customers to
00:01:51 00:01:53 your book
00:01:52 00:01:55 now the next best thing and honestly
00:01:53 00:01:56 probably my favorite way of getting
00:01:55 00:01:58 started when you have
00:01:56 00:02:00 zero dollars in the bank and you don't
00:01:58 00:02:01 want to put a single dollar into your
00:02:00 00:02:02 online business
00:02:01 00:02:04 is flipping so all you've got to do is
00:02:02 00:02:06 go to sites like facebook.com
00:02:04 00:02:08 craigslist.com and a lot of communities
00:02:06 00:02:10 have local versions of this as well
00:02:08 00:02:11 all you've got to do is type in free and
00:02:10 00:02:14 you'll see people around you
00:02:11 00:02:15 throwing in all kinds of stuff that's
00:02:14 00:02:16 free just giving it away
00:02:15 00:02:18 now in your head you might think why
00:02:16 00:02:19 would someone give away something when
00:02:18 00:02:20 they could sell it on these sites and
00:02:19 00:02:23 i'll tell you why
00:02:20 00:02:25 so just a couple years ago me and my
00:02:23 00:02:27 wife were moving and we got to the final
00:02:25 00:02:30 day in our house so it was moving day
00:02:27 00:02:32 and we realized that our bed our dresser
00:02:30 00:02:34 a couple armoires a lot of stuff
00:02:32 00:02:35 wouldn't fit in our moving van
00:02:34 00:02:37 that means that we had about two hours
00:02:35 00:02:39 to sell this stuff and we had
00:02:37 00:02:41 nowhere to put it if we couldn't sell it
00:02:39 00:02:42 so we were completely desperate and we
00:02:41 00:02:44 gave away a queen-size
00:02:42 00:02:46 bed we gave away a really nice dresser
00:02:44 00:02:48 we gave away half of what we owned
00:02:46 00:02:49 to people that probably did exactly what
00:02:48 00:02:52 i'm telling us to do here
00:02:49 00:02:54 all you've got to do is type in free go
00:02:52 00:02:56 pick up the stuff that's free
00:02:54 00:02:57 throw it back onto facebook marketplace
00:02:56 00:02:59 or craigslist
00:02:57 00:03:00 and you can sell it for 50 to 100 bucks
00:02:59 00:03:02 in just a few days
00:03:00 00:03:03 then you can take the money that you've
00:03:02 00:03:05 made from that and you can start
00:03:03 00:03:06 investing that into one of these other
00:03:05 00:03:08 side hustle businesses
00:03:06 00:03:10 where you can start earning some money
00:03:08 00:03:12 maybe a little more passively
00:03:10 00:03:14 the third idea is drop shipping and if
00:03:12 00:03:16 you haven't heard of drop shipping
00:03:14 00:03:18 all we're doing is we're creating online
00:03:16 00:03:20 stores for physical products
00:03:18 00:03:22 when someone goes to buy those physical
00:03:20 00:03:25 products we're buying them from china
00:03:22 00:03:26 or somewhere similar for cheaper and
00:03:25 00:03:28 then we're selling them and shipping
00:03:26 00:03:29 them to our customers for a little more
00:03:28 00:03:31 so you don't actually have to put in any
00:03:29 00:03:32 money to buy these products until you've
00:03:31 00:03:33 already made the sale and you've already
00:03:32 00:03:35 been paid
00:03:33 00:03:36 now this means that it's really really
00:03:35 00:03:38 low risk all you've got to do is create
00:03:36 00:03:40 a shopify account like this one
00:03:38 00:03:42 that costs about 29 a month and you get
00:03:40 00:03:43 a free trial next thing you've got to do
00:03:42 00:03:45 is connect this
00:03:43 00:03:47 in with aliexpress aliexpress is just a
00:03:45 00:03:49 big marketplace where you can go and buy
00:03:47 00:03:51 things really cheap from china
00:03:49 00:03:52 and then you can connect the two every
00:03:51 00:03:54 time someone goes to your shopify store
00:03:52 00:03:57 and buys it automatikally buys the
00:03:54 00:03:59 product from aliexpress ships it to them
00:03:57 00:04:00 and you're kind of just the front end
00:03:59 00:04:02 middleman now the pros here are it
00:04:00 00:04:03 pretty much costs nothing to get started
00:04:02 00:04:04 with this
00:04:03 00:04:07 and you can make some money fairly
00:04:04 00:04:09 quickly on some items that are 10 20 30
00:04:07 00:04:11 the con is that you can have some
00:04:09 00:04:12 nightmares in customer service as you
00:04:11 00:04:14 have these issues with different
00:04:12 00:04:16 suppliers and things not shipping
00:04:14 00:04:17 products and in the end it can be really
00:04:16 00:04:18 hard to manage if you're doing it all
00:04:17 00:04:19 yourself
00:04:18 00:04:21 you can market these products completely
00:04:19 00:04:22 for free on places like tiktok or
00:04:21 00:04:24 instagram
00:04:22 00:04:25 or you can start running paid ads if
00:04:24 00:04:27 you've got a little bit of budget to try
00:04:25 00:04:29 and accelerate that process
00:04:27 00:04:31 the next idea is one that's my personal
00:04:29 00:04:32 favorite it's what allowed me to quit my
00:04:31 00:04:34 nine-to-five job
00:04:32 00:04:36 in fact let's take off this tie right
00:04:34 00:04:37 now
00:04:36 00:04:39 and it's affiliate marketing now what
00:04:37 00:04:42 affiliate marketing is is
00:04:39 00:04:44 you market a company's products for them
00:04:42 00:04:45 and when someone buys
00:04:44 00:04:47 you make money and so affiliate
00:04:45 00:04:48 marketing is really really simple to
00:04:47 00:04:49 understand it's a little bit harder to
00:04:48 00:04:51 execute
00:04:49 00:04:52 but essentially you choose a company
00:04:51 00:04:54 that has a product you like
00:04:52 00:04:56 you join their affiliate program they
00:04:54 00:04:57 give you a special link that looks kind
00:04:56 00:04:58 of like this one on the screen and that
00:04:57 00:05:00 tracks
00:04:58 00:05:02 every customer that comes from you you
00:05:00 00:05:05 go out on the internet on places like
00:05:02 00:05:06 tiktok or a blog or a youtube channel
00:05:05 00:05:08 like this one
00:05:06 00:05:09 and you make videos about that product
00:05:08 00:05:10 or you write blog posts about that
00:05:09 00:05:13 product
00:05:10 00:05:14 when people read or watch your content
00:05:13 00:05:17 and they decide to buy that product
00:05:14 00:05:18 they click on your special link and you
00:05:17 00:05:19 get paid
00:05:18 00:05:21 now the reason i love affiliate
00:05:19 00:05:23 marketing so much is there's no support
00:05:21 00:05:24 there's no really anything except for
00:05:23 00:05:25 being good at marketing
00:05:24 00:05:27 once you learn how to get good at
00:05:25 00:05:28 marketing and building an audience and
00:05:27 00:05:30 getting people to click these links
00:05:28 00:05:31 you're able to make money and you can
00:05:30 00:05:33 make it fairly passively and you don't
00:05:31 00:05:34 have to deal with all the other things
00:05:33 00:05:36 that come with owning a company
00:05:34 00:05:37 now the con of affiliate marketing is a
00:05:36 00:05:39 lot of affiliate programs tend to be
00:05:37 00:05:41 fairly oversaturated and there's a lot
00:05:39 00:05:42 of people trying to make money with them
00:05:41 00:05:44 which makes it a little bit harder for
00:05:42 00:05:45 you as a brand new beginner but if
00:05:44 00:05:46 affiliate marketing
00:05:45 00:05:48 interests you i want you to click this
00:05:46 00:05:49 link and start watching this video it'll
00:05:48 00:05:51 show you how to get started in affiliate
00:05:49 00:05:53 marketing as a complete beginner
00:05:51 00:05:55 now the next way and this is one of my
00:05:53 00:05:58 favorite ways to earn passive income
00:05:55 00:05:58 is by being a blogger hence we're
00:05:58 00:06:00 sitting on a bed
00:05:58 00:06:02 by the way hopefully you've notiked at
00:06:00 00:06:03 this point that we're changing locations
00:06:02 00:06:04 throughout this video
00:06:03 00:06:05 we're having fun with it if you like
00:06:04 00:06:07 what you're watching you feel like
00:06:05 00:06:09 you're learning anything at all
00:06:07 00:06:10 go ahead and click subscribe making
00:06:09 00:06:11 money online is what this channel is all
00:06:10 00:06:13 about
00:06:11 00:06:14 anyway back to blogging blogging is
00:06:13 00:06:16 writing artikles on a blog
00:06:14 00:06:18 and you show up in google just like this
00:06:16 00:06:20 right here so someone a potential
00:06:18 00:06:21 customer of yours type something into
00:06:20 00:06:24 google
00:06:21 00:06:25 they see all these different options
00:06:24 00:06:26 they click one of these options and end
00:06:25 00:06:28 up on your blog
00:06:26 00:06:30 now in that blog typically you can make
00:06:28 00:06:30 money as an affiliate marketer or you
00:06:30 00:06:32 can make money
00:06:30 00:06:34 as a drop shipper or you can make money
00:06:32 00:06:36 just by putting ads like these in your
00:06:34 00:06:38 blog whatever the way you choose though
00:06:36 00:06:40 you're basically putting out written
00:06:38 00:06:42 content google is finding that content
00:06:40 00:06:43 and sending customers your way
00:06:42 00:06:45 now it's really important to understand
00:06:43 00:06:47 if you're looking to make some some side
00:06:45 00:06:48 hustle money right now or even in the
00:06:47 00:06:50 next six months
00:06:48 00:06:52 blogging is definitely not the route for
00:06:50 00:06:53 you blogging takes quite a while to get
00:06:52 00:06:55 off the ground
00:06:53 00:06:57 it's just really really awesome once it
00:06:55 00:06:58 gets running and it can send passive
00:06:57 00:07:00 income your way for a very long time
00:06:58 00:07:02 now if you want to get started blogging
00:07:00 00:07:03 there's a link down below to the 21 day
00:07:02 00:07:05 blogs challenge
00:07:03 00:07:07 that does cost 100 but that can give you
00:07:05 00:07:08 21 days of step-by-step instructions on
00:07:07 00:07:10 how to set up a blog
00:07:08 00:07:12 and make all this work and happen now
00:07:10 00:07:15 the reason i chose this next one
00:07:12 00:07:16 is that it's really a way to make money
00:07:15 00:07:18 quickly so if you're looking to make
00:07:16 00:07:20 money in the next 30 60
00:07:18 00:07:21 90 days this is an awesome route for
00:07:20 00:07:22 that and
00:07:21 00:07:24 and it's a route that can make a lot of
00:07:22 00:07:25 money you can you can be up to five to
00:07:24 00:07:27 ten thousand dollars a month
00:07:25 00:07:29 within a few months using this strategy
00:07:27 00:07:31 now what we're doing here is we're
00:07:29 00:07:33 creating a digital marketing agency
00:07:31 00:07:35 meaning that you're offering digital
00:07:33 00:07:36 marketing services to companies or solo
00:07:35 00:07:38 entrepreneurs
00:07:36 00:07:40 so things like copywriting website
00:07:38 00:07:42 design uh
00:07:40 00:07:44 graphic design video editing all these
00:07:42 00:07:45 things that these these small businesses
00:07:44 00:07:48 need to have done
00:07:45 00:07:49 that they want to hire out you can start
00:07:48 00:07:51 specializing in one of them
00:07:49 00:07:53 and you can make a lot of money i've
00:07:51 00:07:54 seen people start facebook ad agencies
00:07:53 00:07:55 for example
00:07:54 00:07:58 that are making ten thousand dollars in
00:07:55 00:08:00 60 days just by running facebook
00:07:58 00:08:02 ads for customers so for this you'll
00:08:00 00:08:02 need to pick a skill that you're good at
00:08:02 00:08:04 and then you're actually going to go out
00:08:02 00:08:06 and have to find clients
00:08:04 00:08:07 now the con is just that you've got to
00:08:06 00:08:09 go find clients and you're going to have
00:08:07 00:08:10 to manage and maintain relationships
00:08:09 00:08:13 with these clients
00:08:10 00:08:14 but you can typically sell someone and
00:08:13 00:08:16 get a thousand dollar down payment in
00:08:14 00:08:18 the first 30 days of doing this
00:08:16 00:08:20 if you do right by your clients you can
00:08:18 00:08:22 be making a thousand dollars a month
00:08:20 00:08:24 off of one single client and the last
00:08:22 00:08:25 one is what i do this is my youtube

00:08:25 00:08:28 youtube videos
00:08:26 00:08:30 typically to me there's no better side
00:08:28 00:08:31 hustle or online business than being a
00:08:30 00:08:33 youtuber
00:08:31 00:08:34 if you can find a way to get comfortable
00:08:33 00:08:36 being in front of a camera
00:08:34 00:08:39 you can make insane amounts of money on
00:08:36 00:08:40 youtube within your first few years
00:08:39 00:08:42 as a youtuber you can get paid by the
00:08:40 00:08:43 ads that run on your channel
00:08:42 00:08:44 you can get paid as an affiliate
00:08:43 00:08:45 marketer you can get paid as a drop
00:08:44 00:08:46 shipper
00:08:45 00:08:49 and the youtube algorithm is really
00:08:46 00:08:50 unique in that not only can people
00:08:49 00:08:52 search and find your videos like we're
00:08:50 00:08:54 seeing on the screen
00:08:52 00:08:55 but youtube has this recommended column
00:08:54 00:08:56 right here so it's kind of like got this
00:08:55 00:08:58 viral algorithm running
00:08:56 00:09:00 at the same time as it's got this search
00:08:58 00:09:02 engine algorithm running
00:09:00 00:09:03 and your content can blow up in multiple
00:09:02 00:09:05 different ways now that i'm saying this
00:09:03 00:09:07 i would love to know if you could leave
