7 Strategies to Begin Earning a Real
Income Online in 30 Days
Has the pandemic temporarily canceled your
job? Here are 7 ways to start building an
online income that can be fairly
impervious to pandemics, layoffs or
anything else the future might throw at
Please note: The 30 day timeline is
somewhat arbitrary. When done right, some
of these can begin generating income is
far less than 30 days. Some might take a
little longer. And all will depend on your
execution. As they say, your results may
How much can you earn? That will depend on
the method and again, your execution of
that method. It is perfectly reasonable
that even most newbies can earn $500 a
month through any one of these methods and
scale it up to far more than that over
time. But again, your results will depend
on your efforts.
Pro Tip: I don’t have room to go into
tremendous detail for each one of these.
Then again, all of these are simple enough
that you don’t need a lot of detail to get
Read through this entire list and find the
one that strikes a chord with you. Make
note of anything you don’t know about it
and start researching via Google and
Don’t think you have to know every step
before you start – you don’t. Often all
you need is the first step, and then the
next, and then the next…
Fortunes have been built this way by
people who were no more special or
extraordinary than anyone else.
You can do this.
Let’s get started:
Strategy #1: Affiliate Marketing via Brick
and Mortar Businesses
You can make money with this method by
either using your own customer base or by
helping other brick and mortar business
people to stay afloat as they navigate
these interesting times.
The key here is to choose a proven digital
offering that matches the customer base.
Here’s an example: There is a local
business where I live that offers yoga,
qigong, tai-chi and meditation classes.
They are now closed because of the
pandemic and earning no money.
They have two options:
1: Stream their own classes online for
their students. This isn’t a bad idea at
all. They can charge for an online
subscription and have their teachers
continue to teach over the internet.
2: Find proven digital products that match
their customers’ needs. Ideally, these
proven digital products will be
subscription based and pay a lifetime
commission on referrals.
By promoting an established membership
style website, their customers are likely
to get a much better user experience than
if the business begins streaming their own
And because it’s a monthly subscription
with lifetime commissions, the business
can continue to make money even after they
reopen their studio. Plus the business
doesn’t have to go through the trouble of
creating a program – all of the work is
already done for them.
They simply send out emails to their lists
with the offer, as well as offering it
through their social media profiles.
What about everyone else?
What if YOU don’t have a brick and mortar
business, or you don’t already have a list
of subscribers or a social media presence?
Then you can help businesses in your town
to survive. Most traditional type of
businesses do not understand affiliate
marketing or even online marketing, other
than having a website and building a list
of their customers.
You can offer to show them how they can
make a real income online by helping their
customers to get what they want, too.
You can charge a flat fee or a percentage
of income earned.
And you can do it all from the comfort of
your own home, over the phone and the
Strategy #2: Host a Virtual Summit
This is such an awesome business strategy
for people with NO list and NO product.
Think of a virtual summit as a conference
that takes place online. It requires very
little overhead, isn’t complicated and you
can drive traffic and sales quickly by
leveraging other people’s lists.
First, you pick a topic. Examples are: How
to market to your list, how to make the
most of this self-quarantine, how to look
and feel younger, how to improve your
brain, how to start and run an online
business… you get the idea.
Once you have your topic, you approach
experts on the topic and ask them to
participate. Each expert will be
interviewed by you for approximately an
hour on a certain aspect of the topic.
You create a landing page to collect email
addresses and a sales page to sell the
People who sign up can access the
recordings for free, but only for a short
time. For example, if you have 15 experts,
you might release 3 recordings each day
for 5 days.
You might give your new subscribers 48
hours to listen to the calls before they
disappear. And of course, you sell full
lifetime access to the recordings for a
price of $47 or $97.
At the end of each of the interviews, you
allow the experts to offer one of their
products to your listeners, preferably
with a discount.
And all of your experts are expected to
promote the summit to their list. You pay
them a percentage of the lifetime access
price, such as 50%. And you’re an
affiliate for the product they promote at
the end of each call, which again
typically pays you 50%.
These percentages are negotiable. This is
a great business model because you are
very quickly building an active list of
subscribers and making money, too. Talk
about a win/win!
And you can continue to sell to your new
subscribers. For example, if you’re a
coach, you could sell coaching services to
them, or other affiliate products, or
anything else that directly relates to
your initial topic.
Strategy #3: 30 Day Challenges
This works especially well if you already
have a social media presence or an email
list, but it’s not a requirement.
A lot of people are home right now,
wondering what to do with their days.
And these same people have goals. Maybe
they want to lose weight, learn a new
skill, create something and so forth.
Here’s what you do: Choose a topic and the
appropriate product to promote. For
example, if your topic is weight loss, you
might choose an affiliate product to
promote that shows people how to lose
weight by exercising at home, reduce binge
eating through meditation, and using
hypnosis to reduce appetite.
Then you announce you’re having a 30 days
challenge with prizes. Everyone who gets
the product and joins your challenge can
participate on your private Facebook Group
and cheer each other on. You provide
plenty of extra support, feedback, bonuses
and so forth. Make it super fun for
everyone, so that no matter how much
weight they lose, they still come out a
Your prizes don’t need to be super
expensive but they should be something
You can repeat this every 45 days or so,
with 15 days to sign up and 30 days for
Strategy #4: Write a Book
Whoa! I know what you’re thinking… that
writing and publishing a book in 30 days
is crazy, insane, not possible, etc.
But here’s something you might not know –
people do it all the time.
First, there is no length requirement for
an electronic book such as those you find
on Amazon’s Kindle. If 30 pages is enough
to get across the information, then 30
pages is all you need.
Second, Amazon is one of the biggest
search engines in the world, as well as
the #1 digital retailer in the world.
They already have the customers. All you
need to do is provide the product, which
in this case is a Kindle book.
Choose a topic that people are interested
in. The first one that comes to mind is
how best to survive and thrive during a
pandemic, but there are thousands of other
If you’re an expert at something, or if
you have a particular interest in a topic
that interests others, then you’ve got a
great head start.
Do your research online and write your
book in your own voice. Your goal here is
to help your reader achieve an outcome or
solution, such as learning how to do
And above all else, do not be boring. Add
your own interesting stories and charisma
to the book to make it informative and
Think of the teachers and professors
you’ve had over the years. If you had them
all teach the same material, wouldn’t you
agree that some of them would still be
more interesting and entertaining than
others? Be that fun teacher who makes the
If you can’t type or you just don’t want
to, use transcription software such as
Get your cover done by a graphic artist on
Fiverr or 100Covers.com. And get your book
formatted at FormattedBooks.com.
Do some research online to learn how to
launch a book and make it a bestseller.
Generally, you’ll be spending about the
same amount of time promoting your book as
you do writing it.
With the right concept and great initial
promotion, your book may continue to make
sales without further promotion for a good
Then rinse and repeat.
Strategy #5: Coronavirus t-Shirts
Okay, this is going to encompass a whole
lot more than just t-shirts, but t-shirts
seem like a great place to start.
With the advent of a global pandemic,
there is now an almost entirely new niche.
While the pandemic is happening (several
months or possibly longer) you can sell
anything and everything that helps people
get through this traumatic time, whether
it’s something to make them smile (hence
the t-shirt) something to occupy their
time, or things they need for peace of
If you go to Google and search for
“flatten the curve t-shirts” and then
click on images, you will find that
sellers are indeed creating and selling a
wide variety of these shirts.
Personally, I like the commemorative shirt
that reads, “I helped flatten the curve,
2020.” “Stay calm and flatten the curve”
is a good one, too.
Search for “pandemic t-shirt” and you’ll
see, “Baby’s first pandemic” and “Never
underestimate a nurse who survived the
(That last one gave me a lump in the
throat – not all nurses or doctors are
surviving this. Infinite gratitude to our
first responders and medical teams around
the world, they are our real rock stars
and heroes, and we thank them all.)
No doubt there are many other pandemic
shirts to be created and sold because
humor is one of our best weapons for
getting through tough times.
Other products to consider selling –
anything that keeps people busy while they
are stuck at home. Things to occupy
children’s time that can be immediately
downloaded is selling especially well. For
example, science experiments your child
can do with ordinary household items, and
art projects for a rainy (or
Jigsaw puzzles are selling so fast, stores
ran out in early March. In fact, I imagine
that any family type of game or activity
will do quite well for the next few weeks
There’s something called a “Coronavirus
Plush”, a stuffed toy meant to resemble
the virus. I have no idea if it’s selling
And then there’s a coronavirus blanket.
Perhaps it’s to keep you safe from the
virus? Strange is the best word to
You could create books or courses for kids
in no time and start selling them in just
days. Enlist the help of your own children
to tell you what kids want to do most.
A lot of people would love to know how to
make more money from home. You might be a
good example of this.
This is the perfect time for people to
learn a new skill and you can teach it to
Guides for couples on how to survive being
cooped up together 24/7 could be handy.
Pandemic recipes, pandemic games, pandemic
meditations… the list is endless.
I think right now just about anyone who is
a good listener could start a service
where they will simply listen to someone
for 30 minutes for a fee. There are a LOT
of scared people out there who need to
talk to someone, and not everyone has
someone they can talk to.
But don’t stop there… think about the time
when things are getting back to normal…
what will people want then?
And afterwards… things like preparedness
kits might do well, as well as celebratory
products. It’s difficult to say right now
exactly what people will want when this is
all over, besides the things they usually
want. They say that after the pandemic of
1918, most people never even wanted to
talk about it again, almost like it didn’t
My point is, there are plenty of products
you can be selling right now. As to new
products for after the pandemic when
things are starting to normalize… we’ll
just have to see.
Strategy #6: Sell Advice (or Listen) by
Clarity.fm connects experts (that’s you)
with people who have questions.
Your clients book calls with you on the
website, and then they are charged by the
This is a great way to do initial
consultation calls, too. And the system is
drop dead simple to use
The questions are, what expertise do you
have? What will others pay you to learn?
Who are your clients for your service?
If you’re an online marketer, people might
pay you to help them choose a direction
for their new business and get started.
If you’re a health
coach/consultant/teacher, people might pay
you to customize a plan they can use to
get in better shape without leaving their
As we mentioned earlier, there are a LOT
of people out there who simply need
someone to talk to. Listening services
have been gaining in popularity for some
time now, and with everyone isolated in
their homes, I suspect they are going to
explode over the coming days and weeks.
You might even have different pay levels
for a listening service, so that people
can pay at the rate they want to pay at.
Some can afford more, and others can only
afford less. And when this crisis is over,
because you were there for them now, I’ll
bet that many of these people continue to
use your service.
Strategy #7: Paid Membership
You might think this strategy is too
advanced for where you are right now in
your online marketing career, but I’d like
to suggest that it isn’t.
To create a paid membership site, you need
three things: Content, a system to run the
membership site, and paying subscribers.
Can you either source or create content?
Sourcing means you obtain it from
somewhere other than yourself, such as
interviewing other experts, using private
label rights and so forth.
Of course you can. If you’re not a writer,
you can get content from other places, so
that obstacle isn’t an obstacle at all.
Can you set up a membership site? It’s far
easier to do this than in the old days
when you actually had to know something
about software and whatnot. Now you can
simply use a Wordpress plugin such as
Which brings us to the last bit of the
puzzle – getting new members. If you
already have an email list, then you can
start there along with getting affiliates.
Fortunes have been made this way. Set up a
sales page, drive traffic and get new
But what if you don’t have a list, you
don’t have any affiliate contacts (yet)
and you don’t have money to drive traffic?
Here’s what I would do in that case:
Assuming you’ve done your research and
picked out a great niche that people are
passionate about, start giving away ‘some’
free content. Just some. Newspaper sites
do this all the time. They’ll let you read
5 free articles a month, but then to read
more you need to subscribe.
Or you can give away the first portion of
content, and to get the rest and
everything else inside of the membership,
they have to subscribe.
Or you can offer each month or each week
of your content as a paid stand alone
product. People can pay $20 for the one
course, for example, or they can subscribe
to your membership for $29 a month and get
a new course every week.
You get the idea.
It’s like a book author giving away the
first 5 chapters of a 50 chapter book.
People read the chapters, get hooked and
have to get the rest of the book.
Memberships sites are by far my favorite
type of online income because it’s
recurring income. People sign up once and
continue to automatically pay until they
Software as a service runs on the same
principle, only instead of content, they
simple create and maintain software.
(Something for you to consider as well.)

earning money online while you’re
self-isolating at home.
