Now, I’m not talkingabout filling out surveys,watching ads or testing websites. You’re better than that. Hi, if you’re new here, my name is Meganand welcome to my channel,where we talk all things travel,adventure, and working remotelyfrom all over the world. Now, today I’m goingto be covering five waysthat you can start making money onlinetoday with no previous experienceand no specific tech training. This is perfect if you’rea recent university graduateor just the general hard-workerthat doesn’t happen to be trainedin a specific tech area,like web development or coding. Now, I’m not talkingabout filling out surveys,watching ads, or testing websites. You’re better than that. Let’s get started. The first way that you can startmaking money onlineis through dropshipping. Now, drop shipping is a fulfillment modelthat allows you to purchaseproducts individually from wholesalerswho will then ship the productdirectly to your customer. You will list the productfor sale on your website,a customer will then come to your website,place an order with you,you’ll take the customer orderand their detailsand send that off to your supplier. The supplier will then package the item upand ship it directlyto your customer in your name. Dropshipping is very attractivebecause you don’t have to own store,handle, ship, or pre-purchaseany of the inventory. The way it works is that you purchasethe products at wholesale priceand then sell them at retail price. Your profit ends up being the differencebetween what the supplier charges youand what you charge the customer. The way you can get started today isby putting a website onlinethrough a platform like Shopifyand then going to a website like eBayor Aliexpress to find a supplier. Aliexpress is a popular choicebecause it allows you to buy directlyfrom manufacturers in China. So, as you can imagine,the products listed are very inexpensive. You will then takethe product of your choice,list it on your own Shopify websitefor a more expensive price,and can start generating sales. You are essentially the middlemanand are responsible for driving salesas well as handling customerservice concerns as they come through. I have a friend here in Chiang Maiwho has seen very successfulover the years with dropshipping. His name is Johnny,and I’ve linked his website below,which has plenty of more informationand can explain the process to youmuch better than I can. The second way you can startmaking money online is Amazon FBA. Amazon FBA standsfor Fulfillment by Amazon,and is very similar to dropshipping. A key difference is that,instead of having the product listedon your own website,it’s listed on the Amazon Marketplace. This option is riskierand requires more money upfrontbecause you do have to pre-purchasethe products from your supplierand then have it shippedto an Amazon warehouse. You also have to pay Amazonfor storage fees in that warehouse. The benefits of usingAmazon FBA over dropshippingare that you don’t haveto set up your own store,and it may be easier to drive salesas your product is listedon the Amazon Marketplace,which is a trusted name. Your products also becomeeligible for Amazon Primeand you don’t have to handlea lot of the customer serviceas customers will be directingany of those shipping questionsor general questions to Amazon. Teaching English online is very popularbecause it can be donefrom anywhere in the world,with the only qualifications beingthat you’re a native English speakerand have a bachelor degree in. . . anything. The job is in high demand,they’re always looking for English teachers,and most teachers that I knoware making around USD 20 an hourworking for companieslike VIPkid and DaDa. Once you’re hired onby one of these companies,you can expect to be doing 20-minutesessions with students from Chinavia video-conferencing. All of the lesson plansand materials are provided for you,so all you really need isa laptop with a webcamand a quiet room for the sessions. Keep in mind that since the students arein school during the day,the hours for working are between 6:00and 9:00 p. m. Shanghai time. This can mean very early mornings for youif you are living in the US or Canada. Contracts are oftena minimum of six monthsand you can expect to receivetwo weeks of vacationas well as a couple days offeach month during that time. So, if you’re high-energyand you like working with kids,or can at least fake it,this may be the perfect job for you. Udemy is an online-course marketplacethat allows anyone to be an instructorand sell courses through their platform. Once a course is approved by Udemyand uploaded onto their websitethey’ll also do the marketing for youand then split the profits 50-50. In order to get startedyou need to identify somethingthat you can teach others on. Now, think broadly,this could be gardening,it could be how to dress for an interview,it could be public speaking,anything that you’re good at,or at least better atthan most of the people that you know. You also want to make sure it’s somethingthat other people areinterested in learningand then you want to browse on Udemy. comand make sure there’s nota million other coursesbeing taught on the subjectwith five-star reviews,because that is pretty toughto compete with. Once you’ve identified a topic,you need to film it,which can be done on your smartphone,although you may want to investin some audio equipmentas audio is key here. And then you need to edit it. You can edit it yourselfon iMovie or Final Cut Pro,or you can outsource it to a video editorfor a very inexpensive pricethrough a website like Fiverr or Upwork. Once the video is edited and ready to goyou can upload the course to Udemy. com. Udemy will get back to you within 48 hoursand let you knowif the course has been improved,or improvements that youcan make on the courseand then have it approved at a later date. It may seem like a lot of workto come up with an idea,film, edit and upload to geta course approved by Udemybut, once it’s been approved, it becomesa pretty passive source of income,because all you mainly need to dois handle the occasional customer concern. The fifth and final way that I havefor you today is affiliate marketing. The way this works is that you referpeople to productsand, if that person then buys that productyou receive a commission, which is usuallya percentage of the sales. A very common and easy way for anyoneto get started as an affiliate marketeris through a program calledAmazon Associates. For example, I’m signed upon the Amazon Associates programas an affiliate for this laptop stand,because it’s totally epic,folds up into nothing,and I literally take itwith me everywhere. I have a link with a trackingcode embedded in it. So, if you click the link,it will take you to the Amazon listingfor this laptop stand. Now, if you had typed in Amazon“laptop stand” and found it yourself,you would see the exact same listingfor the exact same price. By going through my link,I end up getting a percentage of the salesat no extra cost to you. What makes this even better is that,if you clicked my link,went on to the listing and thought,“No, I don’t want to buy that laptop stand,but I do need a new pairof socks because well…”Winter is coming. Say you then go into the search barand type in “thermal socks,”you find a pair of socksthat you like and you buy those. I will receive a percentage of the salesas commission on those socks,because I was the onethat initially brought youto Amazon. ca or Amazon. com. The amount of commissionthat you receive is between 1% and 10%. So, on a pair of socks, you’re not goingto be making very much money,but say you had typed in MacBook Proand bought one of thosein the same browsing session. . . You can make quite the commissionon Amazon Associates. In order to get started, scroll tothe very bottom of the Amazon pageand click Amazon Associates. All right, there you have it. Those are five ways that you can startmaking money online todaywith no real specificexpertise or tech skills.
