The “get a degree, find a job” system is archaic and completely choked now.
A University degree lately is a mere decoration in this century.
We all know the economy is very hard now, so being over reliant on a job now is surviving and not living.
The original design was for us to live to work, and not work to live!
Many organizations are collapsing now, the future is securing your own business online or even offline.
To make money in USA now, you need to find multiple streams of income.
Anyway, allow me to introduce myself.
I am Emmanuel Osei, owner of Smart Income Office.
You can choose to call me Karisma.
Anyway, speaking of online businesses, I can say I have over 7 years experience in online marketing so I know what I am about.
I have been involved in a lot of online and offline marketing programs and I have seen it all; both the ups and downs.
Now to subject matter, there are so many ways to make money online or make money in USA, and I want to discuss about 5 of them:
This is one of the easiest way to make money online without referring anyone, if not the easiest!
What Is A Revenue Share Company?
Revenue sharing generally is the distribution of profits and losses between stakeholders, who could be general partners (and limited partners in a limited partnership), a company’s employees, or between companies in a business alliance.
Business- Revenue sharing in Internet marketing is also known as cost per sale, in which the cost of advertising is determined by the revenue generated as a result of the advertisement itself.
This method accounts for about 80% of affiliate marketing programs,primarily dominated by online retailers such as Amazon and eBay.
Basically in online Revenue Share Programs, you pay for advertisements and make money from your advertising packages.
I currently make between $190 to $270 a day with this.
My aim is to make $500 a day by December, then $1,000 a day early 2018.
Check earnings below:
How You Earn:
You basically earn 2% daily on your advertising packages daily!
To further explain what I mentioned earlier, you need to purchase advertisement in Revenue shares to make money daily.
The advertisement come in the form of advertising packages(adpacks).
The more adpacks you purchase, the more you earn daily, plus you have the opportunity to compound your earnings to earn even more!
You earn 2% on each active adpack till each adpack pays out 120%.
Since the main products in revenue shares are advertisement, you need to view ads every 24 hours to qualify for the daily revenue shares of 2% for each paid member.
What I’m About To Show You:
In this incredible revenue share, an adpack costs $35 each.
For example, you are broke and therefore can afford to purchase only one adpack for $35.
From what I explained earlier, you will earn 2% on your $35 daily till it pays out 120% which is $42.
The magic however is in buying more adpacks and compounding.
Let’s say you can afford to purchase 50 adpacks , 50 x $ 35adpacks = $1,750.
Don’t get scared, this is just an example, start with whatever you can afford.
Now, 2% of $1,750 will earn you $35 daily, meaning you would be able to purchase a new adpack every single day to increase your earnings.
The more adpacks you have, the more you earn.
If you can’t afford to buy more adpacks, you can start slowly and build up.
Note however that, revenue shares are not investment programs.
You pay to advertise your business to other members globally and get paid for the revenue generated daily from the adpack sales.
If you have no other business to advertise, no worries, you can pay little to no attention to that part and still make money.
Most of us are only here for the money anyway!
In Revenue shares, all you need to do is set a goal for how much you want to earn daily and work towards it.

Youtube is a goldmine!
You too can make money on Youtube.
When you watch a video on youtube, do you see that annoying ad that you can’t wait to skip?
Well to you it’s annoying but to another person it’s business!
Yes, anytime you watch that video and the ad is displayed, the owner of that video makes money!
You may be asking, how?
You see, major companies purchase advertising on youtube just as they do on tv and radio.
But since most of the videos don’t belong to youtube but individuals, youtube unselfishly decided to pay for ads displayed on your video.
So these companies pay owners of Youtube: Google, to display their ads on your videos.
Google then share the money they make with the video owners.
That surely sounds good right?
Don’t be singing Hallelujah yet!
You won’t be rich overnight because you get paid few cents per hundreds of views.
That shouldn’t discourage you because it is all about hard work and numbers!
If you are able to rake in hundreds of thousands of views, you can only imagine your potential income.
Yes you can do it too if others are doing it.
Musicians get millions and millions of views on youtube and I am certain most of them have monetized their videos.
Most of these musicians make good money here.
Don’t worry if you have no idea about monetizing your youtube videos, we shall come to that later.
So don’t waste your time on youtube by only making others rich; you can set up your business over there too.
You may be saying to yourself; oh I’m no musician and I have no music videos, how do I make money on youtube?
Well, you don’t need to be a musician to make money on youtube.
Let me give you some few practical tips:
The next time you go on holiday trips, vacations, excursions, expeditions, hiking, camping etc, don’t just take selfies and pose like an agama lizard to post on facebook for 200 likes and go sleep hungry! Are you gonna eat those likes?
As a matter of fact, Mark Zuckerberg should be paying us for the time we spend on facebook.
He should be paying us for the likes, status updates, comments, the videos we upload etc
If he’s not gonna do it, youtube is doing it, so take advantage.
When you go on such pleasure trips, don’t just take selfies. Capture unique places on camera, take pictures of interesting stuffs to make a slide show video for youtube, take videos of unique places that people will be interested to watch etc.
The prank videos you watch on youtube, it’s not all about making you laugh; they are banking in the dollar every time you visit youtube to go have a laugh.
Same applies to the football highlights you watch on Youtube daily; the owners of those videos are making a living from your views.
You may be very good at doing something, why don’t you post a tutorial video on youtube?
The next step is to upload them on youtube and give them interesting and catchy “Titles” that would make viewers eager to click that stubborn play button.
You can then promote these videos on various advertisement platforms such as facebook, instagram, twitter etc.
You can choose to purchase advertising on facebook and instagram to promote the videos too for larger views.
There goes Mark Zuckerberg again; he’s not paying us what we deserve yet he is taking more from us.
If you have no idea how to create advertisement on facebook, just click here to follow the step by step guidelines.
You only need a credit/debit card and a facebook fan page with over 200 likes to be qualified
Our next topic is the step by step guide on how to monetize your videos. It is not difficult to monetize your videos. I have put together a step by step guide on how to monetize your videos. After uploading your videos on Youtube, just follow the steps I outlined here: STEP BY STEP GUIDE ON HOW TO MONETIZE YOUR YOUTUBE TO MAKE MONEY FROM YOUR VIDEOS
Just follow the steps and you’d be good to go.
But note that Google has exempted some countries from youtube video monetization.
Fortunately Ghana is included now, but if your country is exempted and you have relatives in other parts of the globe, you can register with their address.
That is what I did when Ghana wasn’t included- I used my UK address.
Never also try to monetize Videos that do not belong to you else Youtube will ban you; they have mechanisms in place to check this.
People do ask a lot: how do bloggers make money?
This is another way to make money in USA.
Well bloggers make money via various means like:
I want to give you a practical example using my blog.
Now if you scroll through this very article, you will notice a rectangular ad on the very top side of the page and some square/rectangular ads displayed in the article.
Yes, those are the real deals!
You see, anytime readers view pages like this with ads displayed on them, the blogger makes money. Don’t open your mouth yet!
It takes a lot of hard work, traffic, good contents etc, to make some nice income from these ads.
It takes hundreds of thousands to millions of views to make some good money here.
You make even more when readers click on the ads displayed.
I wouldn’t like to go too deep into the terms used in ad networks to complicate matters, since this is only an explanation on how bloggers make money.
There are many factors involved in how much bloggers make from website views/clicks, which includes countries from which you get traffic(country of your site visitors), size of traffic, your niche, content of your articles etc.
Traffic from USA, Canada, Australia, UAE, UK, Kuwait, Brazil, pay far more than traffic from for examples, Ghana, Nigeria, Russia, India, Germany etc.
Articles about computers, technology, IT solutions, banking and investment, business, health etc, pay more than articles about entertainment, relationships, politics, religion and the like. Why?
Because the type of ad displayed on a blog post has everything to do with what the blog post is talking about. An article with a relationship content would have an online dating ad displayed in the post.
Similarly, an article that talks about gadgets would have Apple or Samsung ads displayed in it.
And of course Apple or Samsung will pay Ad network companies more than the online dating website or app owners would.
So organizations pay these Ad network companies to display their ads on blogs.
The ad network company in turn shares the revenue with publishers/blog owners.
There are many ad networks like Revenue Hits, Chitika, Popcash, Infolinks, Pop ads, Propellar ads etc.
But the highest paying, most secure and most popular Ad network company is Google Adsense, developed by almighty Google!
Google Adsense is every blogger’s dream.
However it takes quite a lot for a blogger’s website to be accepted by Google.
Unlike other Ad network companies where bloggers are easily accepted, Google has a lot of policies, thus Google refuses thousands of applications daily!
Luckily for me, Google accepted my website in my very first application.
Google Adsense is my main focus now.
There are so many writers who are scared to apply for Adsense in fear of being rejected by Google.
But if others are doing it why can’t you?
I don’t like the mindset of “some people are super humans or special”.
I always have it at the back of my mind that if someone was able to do it, so can I.
The bar has even been raised lately it seems; if you don’t have articles with about 2,000 words your adsense application is likely to be refused.
Google frowns on plagiarism.
Your Adsense account would be banned and all monies made seized if Google notices copyright contents on your website.
Another thing Google frowns upon are fraudulent behaviours aimed at increasing Adsense revenue.
Behaviours such as asking friends to click on ads displayed on your site, clicking on ads displayed on your website, viewing your own page multiple times with the intention of increasing revenue, promoting your blog posts on pay per click sites etc, are all against Google Adsense policies.
2)Affiliate marketing, which involves promoting products of other people and earning commissions from each and every product bought through your website.
Clickbank.com is the most popular affiliate marketing retailer.
All you have to do is to just sign up at clickbank, Amazon or any other ecommerce website, choose whatever products you’d want to promote on your website, then apply via filling a form.
The owner of the products would be notified and if they are satisfied with your online marketing skills and tools, they would generate an affiliate link for you to market their products with and pay you commissions on every sale made via your unique affiliate link.
Some products don’t require application though. You could just register and generate an affiliate link straight away to promote the products on your blog posts.
Owners of the products would be able to track sales made via the affiliate link you generated and pay you accordingly.
You don’t always have to apply at Clickbank or Amazon though.
When you visit most sites that sell products, it is common to see a small “affiliates” menu usually at the bottom or top of the website.
If you see an affiliate link on a website, it is an invitation for affiliate marketers to market whatever products they are selling on the website. So you just click on the link and apply.
Affiliate marketing is very lucrative and a lot of people make good living from just affiliate marketing.
However, it takes a lot of skill and tools to succeed as an affiliate marketer. It is not easy at all but hey, if others are doing it so can you. I used to focus a lot on affiliate marketing but I give it less attention now.
I will give it more attention later in the year.
3) Network Marketing/MLM:
Similar to affiliate marketing, Network Marketing or MLM(Multi level Marketing), involves the sale of products via networking and not via the traditional way of selling( directly from the stores).
With MLM, you build a network of like-minded distributors, sell to them and make commissions.
Since it is a network, you have to build a continuous downline or matrix of distributors.
If anyone in your downline(the normal term used in network marketing is “referrals”) fails to convince others to join his downline to build the matrix, the network is cut short and dies off eventually. It takes a lot of leadership and team work to succeed as a network marketer.
I am sure you have come across business programs that required you to sign up 2, 3 or more people; that is network marketing or mlm.
Like affiliate marketing, it is also not easy at all. It requires a lot of tools especially if you do most of your marketing online: a website, a landing page, list builder etc.
I used to focus a lot on network marketing too but like affiliate marketing, I don’t give it much attention now. I am still into network marketing though.
I still have quite a number of programs I promote on my website.
Some popular network marketing organizations are Forever Living, Tianshi, Mobe etc.
Also be informed that network marketing doesn’t involve the sale of products only, like it is done at Forever living and co.
Most of the online network marketing programs do not involve the sale of products.
A lot of people who have failed in network marketing have tagged it a ponzi scheme. But hey, others are making it so your complaints and excuses don’t hold!
A lot of network marketers are making millions of dollars in this industry.
This usually work for the popular bloggers who have huge traffic to their sites.
It involves organizations, musicians etc paying for ad space on your website since your site is popular and gets a lot of views.
If you are confident about your website’s traffic and can provide analytics about your traffic, you could negotiate with companies to advertise on your website at a recurring fee.
Yeah, so all the above are some of the ways through which bloggers make money.
I hope this was insightful.
If you write and want to own a blog, I could help you build your website for you and give you one on one coaching.
Just contact me and let’s set the ball rolling.
4.Writing And Selling Ebooks:
Are you an expert in a particular field?
Why don’t you write about your knowledge to make money from it?
You would be surprised how successful it would eventually turn out to be.
It could be about body building, weight loss etc
Just take a look around to find out the die needs of people to provide solutions if you have in-depth knowledge about their needs. You will make a lot of money if you are a problem solver.
It doesn’t cost much at all to write an ebook in a pdf format and put it up for sale online.
If your book provides a remedy for a sought after niche, you would smile to the bank, and at the same time put smiles on the faces of people.
What do you know? What secrets do you have that would be of benefit to a lot of people?
It is high time you write about it.
Feel free to contact me for coaching on how to publish an ebook.
5.An alternative to the above, is to be a success coach:
This is similar to writing ebooks about your expertise, only that with this, you organize pay to attend seminars or conferences instead.
How many times haven’t you paid to attend these make money seminars?
These success coaches charge for the knowledge they share with you, in the form of attendance tickets.
The halls are usually full to capacity, so imagine how much they make just from seminar, let alone the products they market to you.
It is all about branding yourself properly and voilaaaaaa, you are ready to go.
People will attend as long as you have a vital information to share.
These success coaches organize these seminars in different cities and countries periodically, and they do make a lot of profit from attendance only.
Feel free to contact me about how to brand yourself to do this.
