How To Make Money Online During Covid-19

Traffic Increasing But Earnings Decreasing

Sounds familiar? If you are a blogger, you know exactly what I mean. With the Covid-19 pandemic, people are focused to stay at home and they are using the Internet non stop. While this is helping you to increase your blog traffic, it is certainly not helping you to make additional income. The reason is simply because people are trying to save money and prepare for the worst.

Here are some of the best tips to make money online during Covid-19.

Simple Steps To Increase Blog Earnings And Make Money Online

Just like many other blogs, my primary blogs are also hit with the lower than expected affiliate marketing earnings. It made me think how and what I should do to increase my blog earnings.

Carry on reading to discover the 5 steps I took to make money online during Covid-19.

Table of Contents

Create trust

One of the best ways to increase your chance of making money online is by creating trust. With the Covid-19 pandemic around the world, people have access to more information than ever before.

The only thing that differentiate you and your competitors is that you are building trust.

How to build trust and make money?

  • Information published on the blog needs to be real and true
  • Convey messages based on emotional feelings
  • Avoid any salesy words or content to generate sales
  • Promote your newsletter and free content (in return for their email)
  • Ask questions and answer questions to display authority

Funnel Your Visitors

What does it comes to your mind when we talk about sales funnel? It's probably sales, sales and more sales, right?

In this case, you should still build a sales funnel—but without the hard selling.

Instead, use the funnel to drive traffic and build an audience that will trust your words.

This case, you will be able to build a following (and make money down the road after Covid-19).

There are many sales funnel software in the market with ClickFunnels being the most expensive one. If you are trying to keep a low budget, ConvertKit is an excellent option for you to start building an email funnel. Free demo.

Build An Email List

There is no better time to build an email list than now. Here's one of the biggest mistakes done by many bloggers when it comes to email marketing.

Do not use an email list to send weekly or monthly newsletters. Instead, build funnels or email sequences within your email lists to drive more traffic and conversion—a.k.a. make money online.

This quote is taken from my free masterclass where I teach bloggers and Internet Marketers the exact steps I took to go from $0 to $100,000+ in 2019. It's free to join and there's absolutely ZERO upsell. Reserve your spot here.

Here's the exact automation and email sequences I used for my blogs.

Email Automation Using ConvertKit

I use ConvertKit for my email responders and I recommend you to do the same too—if you are selling courses online.

Smart Monetization

Does your blog has more than 1,000 visits in a month? If the answer is "yes", you should consider signing up for Ezoic.

Ezoic is a 3rd party Adsense publisher that helps website owners to make more money online with Adsense. Instead of optimizing each page for Adsense, Ezoic helps to do real-time optimization to ensure that you stand the highest chance in earning money from Google Adsense.

Do you know that Ezoic helped me to earn 10x more Google Adsense revenue in just 3 days after implementing Ezoic to my website? Check out Ezoic and register for a free account with them!

Sponsored Content

While Covid-19 had created economy downfall at an unprecedented level, it had failed to stop content from gaining momentum. Website owners and digital marketing agencies are constantly seeking freelancers to perform content outreach or guest posting.

And if you have a website and want to earn some quick income, having sponsored content from time to time is a good thing—to earn quick bucks.

A sponsored content could earn you from $30 to $200, depending on your website age, traffic count and several other factors.

Suitable for ...Internet marketers, business owners, online marketers, agency and freelancers.

That's a long list, but it pretty wrap up what Click Funnels is and performs.

Here's what I think Click Funnels does best (and why it has a huge list of followers.

  • Excellent sales funnel builder concept
  • A fully integrated marketing system for busy business owners and marketers
  • Support is always available on live chat or Facebook Groups
  • No coding skills required
  • Great support and fan base (thus, you are not alone)
  • No additional fees for web hosting and messy server management
  • Constant webinars, live videos for CF trainings
  • Drag and drop builder to craft the perfect sales funnel
  • Follow-Up Funnels are great way to reach cold audience in just a few clicks
  • Follow-Up Funnels connects you with the prospect via Facebook, email, SMS and other platforms
  • Many ready made templates (free and purchased separately) which are ready to use
  • Integrated affiliate system to build advocate and boost sales

Click Funnels is a great sales funnel builder software but just like any unicorn products, it has it downsides too. One too many for that matter. 

Now, here's what I think Click Funnels lacks dearly.

  • Support via live chat is slow during non working hours
  • Integration is painful (emotionally) and time consuming
  • Backend system loads super slow using Chrome but not Firefox)
  • Most sales pages are not able to cope up with high traffic
  • Click Funnels is buggy if you require customization
  • Limited integration with 3rd party email service providers
  • Very high learning curve (takes over weeks to understand the Click Funnels softwareflow
  • The pricing is too upscale even for medium sized businesses

The most important factor for Click Funnels is Russell Brunson. He is the facelift of the company and he makes sure you feel comfortable using Click Funnels (even with the massive price tag). As a founder, he is approachable and his idea is never-ending. 

Click Funnels Review: Dashboard

Before the Click Funnels were upgraded, the backend system looks horrible. Now, the new design looks cleaner and sharper. As a matter of fact, I find it very useful as an Internet Marketer.

ClickFunnels Dashboard

What I truly love about the ClickFunnels dashboard is having a complete summary of my account standings at one glance.

Apart from that, I got to give credits to the CF guys for having a calendar with markers on the bottom right. This gives me an idea on what is happening for the day—free webinar, trainings etc.

Click Funnels Review: Building A Funnel

Building a funnel on Click Funnels is easy. The trick here is NOT to overthink and just go with flow. Click Funnels is build for beginners and to help you build your first funnel under 30 minutes or less. Take a look below.

How To Build A Funnel With Click Funnels

By default, you are given three options for your funnel goals—collect emails, sell your product or host a webinar.

Choosing any of these options will lead you to the next section for funnel building.

Funnel Builder Software Click Funnels Review

What you see above is a simple and default funnel builder steps. All you need to do are:

  • Select the steps on the left
  • Choose one templates on the right
  • Repeat for the next step of the funnel

This three step process allows you to build sales funnels quickly and efficiently. 

Instead of spending time trying to figure out how to build a sales funnel from scratch (with designs and layouts), you can do that directly with Click Funnels ready-made templates.

You will reach this page when you have selected a template to work with.

How To Edit Customize Landing Pages Using Click Funnels

Here, you can either edit your page design or create a variation for A/B testing.

Click Funnels Review: Customize Landing Pages

Click Funnels offers drag and drop builder. This means that you can customize the landing page in anyway you want without using a single line of code.

Here's how the Click Funnels drag and drop builder looks like on the backend.

How To Edit A Landing Page On Click Funnels

Click Funnels uses blocks and any works to customize your landing page needs to be done within the blocks.

Still, there is no coding skills required and you can literally click to edit any elements on the page.

In order for your landing page to work well with your autoresponder within Click Funnels, you need to setup the automation. Here's how.

Click Funnels Automation

Click on the Automation tab allows you to add automation to the list (when visitors sign up).

Basically, the concept goes this way.

Setup SendGrid » Connect API with Click Funnels » Create list in Click Funnels » Setup automation to push data to the list

Here's a bummer. Click Funnels DO NOT offer email marketing solution. It only allows you to send out receipts for purchases or other forms of confirmation. If you require email marketing, you are required to connect to 3rd party email hosting solutions.

Click Funnels Review: Follow-Up Funnels

Follow-up funnels is an autoresponder sequence just like the ones offered by AWeber. However, it is important to understand that Click Funnels relies on 3rd party email marketing providers to do the email delivery.

This is how the follow-up funnels looks like on the backend.

Click Funnels Follow Up Funnels Review

As usual, you can create steps on the left and drag them to reorder. At the bottom of the screen, you would be able to see the conversions and other important stats pertaining to your email campaigns.

Personally, I find Click Funnels Follow-Up Funnels rather useful but annoying to use. Here's what I honestly think.

  • The automation system is powerful only if you put in the effort to understand how it works
  • Click Funnels offer very good delivery rates (surprisingly)
  • Editing the email is rather a pleasant experience
  • The summary seen on the Follow-Up Funnels dashboard is great for a quick glance (for reporting)
  • It's a bummer since I am paying $297 per month and had to get 3rd party email marketing service such as SendGrind to send my emails
  • The learning curve to configure the email delivery correct along with the automation is serious nail-biting (i failed 3 times just for that, with over 10 years experience in email marketing integration)

Click Funnels Review: Backpack

One of the best features for Click Funnels is the inbuilt affiliate software—Click Funnels (platinum package) comes with Backpack. This system allows you to manage affiliate, see their performance, create different affiliate tiers, coupon codes (with or without expiry) and commission payments (automatic or manual) to affiliates.

ClickFunnels Review Backpack

Backpack is excellent because if you are selling products or services, affiliate marketing is going to drive your sales up. More importantly, it costs lesser than the cost of paid advertising.

If you are looking to have an all-in-one software including affiliate management, Click Funnels Platinum is a well-worth investment for your business.

Click Funnels Review: ClickFunnels Pricing

Is ClickFunnels worth the money? Let's discuss further on Click Funnels pricing. Here's the Click Funnels pricing 2020.

Click Funnels is not your average sale funnel builder software. It is slightly on the higher side when compared to other Click Funnels competitors.

Click Funnels basic plan costs $97 per month and comes 20k monthly visits and 20 funnels.

On the other hand, Click Funnels Platinum offers unlimited everything, including Follow-Up Funnels and Backpack.

The biggest differences between ClickFunnels basic vs ClickFunnels Platinum are:

  • Backpack (affiliate software)
  • Follow-Up Funnels (email automation)
  • Unlimited everything (funnels, pages, monthly visits)
  • $200 more expensive to upgrade to Platinum from Basic

Now, this is a hard decision. One that took me over 3 days to really decide. Believe me, I created a trial account for ClickFunnels Basic and a separate trial account for ClickFunnels Platinum just to experience them!

Here's what I had decided (and I hope you find these useful).

Click Funnels Platinum offers significant power especially when it offers an all-in-one marketing solution for website owners. This package is best fit for those who are ALREADY earning decently from their products or services.

Click Funnels Basic offers an entry level sales funnel builder tool that is AFFORDABLE for small business owners and entrepreneurs, with the costs of a reduced features.

Subscribing to Click Funnels Platinum is a privilege and I strongly recommend you to go for this package only if you need the following:

  • An all-in-one marketing tool
  • You have significant knowledge in sales funnels and marketing
  • You are selling products with high profits
  • Affiliates are important for your business
  • You want hassle free email management and automation
  • You don't mind learning how to integrate sales funnels, follow-up funnels and backpack under one roof

On the other hand, Click Funnels Basic is more geared towards simplicity and building excellent sales funnels—minus all the extra addons that costs $200 extra each month.

Click Funnels Review: How To Use Click Funnels Properly?

You may have an excellent sales funnel builder software but if you have no idea how to use it, you are not going to build excellent funnels.

Let's say you have very limited knowledge in sales funnels and you want to use Click Funnels.

The concept that Click Funnels 'sells' to everyone is this. The sales builder software is one of the most advanced one in the market (truth) but, there will be multiple upsells within the software itself.

You are NOT REQUIRED to purchase any addons or trainings, but getting getting these addons or trainings will definitely IMPROVE your conversion rate, traffic and sales revenue.

I'm not implicating that Click Funnels is bad. I'm just saying that you might need some assistance if you are starting out with Click Funnels as a newbie.

I have been critical on Click Funnels and I want to make sure that you KNOW exactly what you are signing up for.

Click Funnels is best if you know exactly what to do. 

But what if you don't want to spend a whole of money with Click Funnels but WANTS TO MAKE MONEY with your products/services, I recommend you to get in this free masterclass that I'm hosting for a limited time.

I'll show you exactly the strategies, platforms and tools I use to go from $0 to 6 figures in under 12 months.

[Free Masterclass] Discover the exact steps I took to go from $0 to $10k in 12 months.

    We respect your privacy. Unsubscribe at anytime.

    Summary: Honest ClickFunnels Review 2020

    As a summary, Click Funnels is not bad and I can't help but to constantly recommend anyone who is serious in generating more leads and turning them into sales through strategic sales funnels.

    Click Funnels is definitely at a higher end in terms of sales funnel builder software pricing but the support you get is definitely worth the money. The community on Facebook itself is super supportive and you can get tons of knowledge just by connecting to them!

    Automated. This option allows you to create emails based on automation. The free MailChimp account gives you ONE automation and I recommend you to use this to welcome your new subscribers or send out automated email for perks or courses that you are offering.

    Plain text. This option is for you to create an email without any beautiful layout. This is good if you know what you are doing. If done correctly, you can experience a super high reach rates.

    How To Schedule Newsletter With MailChimp?

    You can schedule an email newsletter using MailChimp only after you had completed the email draft. This security feature ensures that you do not send a blank email or a draft email by accident.

    • Email Marketing Status
    • Campaign Activity (Did Not Open)

    The above settings allow me to segment out the less active subscribers. 

    Before removing inactive subscribers, it is best to send one last email to see if they opens it. Most of the time, around 5% will open the email (if you draft it with personalizations).

    How To Get Better Email Delivery Rate Using MailChimp?

    Email delivery rates. There isn't a bulletproof way to have better email delivery rates. However, there are certainly some tips to help you achieve such!

    • Avoid spam words
    • Personalize your email with their names
    • Avoid spamming with links
    • Create engaging emails and get them to reply you directly

    Autoresponder is gold in email marketing and the free MailChimp plan only allows ONE automated email per account.

    Yes, that sucks but it is okay if you are just starting out.

    Here's how it looks like.

    Write an Ebook (or a Few)

    Writing and publishing eBook is one of the most powerful ways to make $50 a day online in 2020. With the constant growth in technology and mobile usage, people are going towards eBooks because it is easier to read and 'carry' anywhere.

    Here are some crazy facts for you.

    The number of self-published books in the US grew from 85,468 in 2008 to over one million in 2017. In 2017 alone, self-publishing grew at a rate of 28 percent and according to an estimate, a title will generate approximately 11,200 dollars of revenue in its lifetime.

    That’s a pretty impressive figure and a confirmation of the fact you can make 50 dollars per day or even more with ebook writing.

    The trick here is to create multiple titles and to utilize these for cross-promotion. Having the different titles within the same field is a good idea because you’ll be putting together an entire portfolio a targeted audience would want to read.

    It’s also very important to rely on multiple distribution channels. While Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) is the biggest one, it’s not the only option out there. I really like and use Draft2Digital because the conditions are really good and they’re constantly increasing the portfolio of online stores that your ebooks, print publications and audio books will be submitted to.

    Build a Blog and Start Affiliate Marketing

    How much money can you make from blogging?

    This is one of the common questions asked by many. To be honest, building a blog is cheap (almost free) and you can easily turn it into a super awesome business opportunity to make $100 a day from the Internet.

    How To Start A Blog And Earn 50 Dollars A Day Online

    Professional bloggers make at least a few thousands from blogging and it just proves that blogging is a great work from home opportunity.

    How to make 50 dollars a day online with blogging?

    Follow these steps to start a blog and earn money today.

    1. Choose a domain name.
    2. Get a web hosting (I recommend starting a WordPress blog on Bluehost as it will allow you to have full ownership of what you promote).
    3. Install free WordPress theme.
    4. Install recommended WordPress plugins.
    5. Choose a few affiliate programs to join (to promote products and earn commission). I use ShareASale and you should too.

    Do a Bit of Freelance Writing

    If eBook writing isn’t the thing for you and you’re still wondering how to make 50 dollars a day online, you may want to give freelance writing a try.

    Freelance writing gigs come in all shapes and sizes.

    The best part?

    You can start with minimum experience (or no experience at all).

    There will be clients looking for articles, social media publications, marketing copy, ebooks, whitepapers, website content, magazine and newspaper articles, press releases, editorials, poetry – you name it, someone’s willing to pay for it.

    Many simple assignments and if you have some love for the written word, you’ll discover one or more gigs to fall in love with.

    Become A Freelance Writer And Earn $50 A Day From Home

    To earn 50 dollars a day online through freelance writing, you’ll need to join multiple websites that feature such projects. Some of the best options out there include:

    • Upwork: the variety of Upwork jobs is great and definitely worth a try. To score a project, however, you’ll need to have a portfolio and some experience.
    • Textbroker: defined as a content mill, Textbroker is a good choice because the tasks are simple and it’s relatively easy to get accepted and start writing.
    • Content mills: joining multiple content mills will give you access to an array of projects. The problem with content mills is that the rates aren’t the best ones out there. If you just want to earn a bit of additional income, these websites will be a good choice. Those who want to build a freelance writing career, however, may want to look for an alternative.

    There are numerous other ways to look for writing jobs, as well. Doing a bit of online research will reveal those possibilities.

    Looking for the right gigs, however, isn’t the only key thing to make money writing. It’s very, very, important to work on building your portfolio and your writing style.

    Copyscape is one of these tools and Grammarly is the other. In my experience, many clients rely on Grammarly to check the work of the freelancers that they partner up with. Thus, getting in the habit of using the tool before submitting your work is going to be an excellent idea.

    You will need a couple of tools to invest in for best results.

    Learn Persuasive Writing

    This is the ONLY copywriting course you ever need.

    Host Ads on Your Blog, Generate Passive Income

    There is more than one way to make $50 a day from blogging and serving advertisements on your blog is one of those.

    Google Adsense, for example, is one of the best advertisers in the market that pays decently well. If you have traffic well over 50,000 a day, you can earn quite decently from Google.

    The best paying Google Ads often comes from finance and health related niches.

    Make $50 A Day Using Ads On Blogs

    There are also many other 3rd party advertisers who might be interested in having their ads on your blog. For example, Ezoic and PurpleAds are two great platforms that help you monetize your blog—and ultimately helping you to make 50 dollars a day on autopilot.

    Personally, I integrate all my blogs with Ezoic. This automated system allows me to optimize all the ads on my sites and until date, had helped me to generate more than 5x of my standard Google Adsense earnings. Ezoic is free. Register here.

    Draft a Course and Sell It

    Just like you can write eBooks to earn 50 dollars a day online, you can also rely on alternative opportunities like course creation.

    Courses are always in demand—take a look at Udemy for example. It has courses from as low as $9.99 to over $499!

    The best aspect here is that a course can be created on any topic that you have knowledge in. Whether you like making jewelry from beads or you believe you can teach newbies how to start their own business idea, your knowledge can be monetized.

    Teach Online Courses And Make Money Online

    Multiple platforms out there enable course creators to sell their lessons and reach a very large, interested audience.

    Teachable and Udemy are two very popular choices. To decide between them or to determine if an alternative is better, you should definitely go through the terms and conditions.

    There are many stories of people becoming millionaires through course creation. Even if you don’t manage to replicate their success, you can still earn some nice income.

    Once again, the sum itself depends on the number of courses you’ve created and on how valuable your knowledge is considered. If you have niche experience in a relatively popular field, you can quickly begin earning 50, 100 or even more dollars per day.

    Start Selling Your Own Digital Product

    Selling digital products is pretty similar to selling courses. This category basically covers a wider range including membership sites to make 50 dollars a day from home.

    Yes, you hear that right. 

    Digital products can be created from the comfort of your home and you can easily launch the product online by selling it through various platforms, including Facebook.

    Sell Digital Products And Make Money From Home

    Here are some ideas in selling digital products to earn $50 a day online:

    1. Sell educational products like eBooks or courses.
    2. Sell licenses to use your digital assets.
    3. Sell a membership for access to exclusive digital products.
    4. Sell digital templates and tools.
    5. Sell your music or art as digital products.
    6. Sell your services through digital products.

    Did you know?

    Selling digital products has one of the highest ROI (return of investment) and is able to help you make more than 50 dollars a day online.

    Sell Your Stuff Online

    To earn 50 dollars a day online, you should also definitely check out the platforms enabling you to sell various things. For example, Esty is one of the popular platforms for women (especially) to sell and promote their products.

    Just about everything can be sold online – from items you no longer need to those you create as a part of your hobby.

    You can sell old electronics, vintage clothes, antiques, art and handcrafted jewelry, among others.

    Sell Stuffs Online And Make $50 A Day Easy

    If you want to generate consistent income on eBay, for example, you will have to determine a source of items. These could be the things you make yourself. These could also be items you’ve managed to buy cheaply and you’ve sold at a higher price.

    Some people have turned selling stuff online into a full-time occupation. They specialize in an area and look for bargains. Because of their knowledge, such people can easily identify valuable items that are being offered for a fraction of their actual value. In addition, they often know how to renovate collectible and antique items, which adds to their value.

    It’s certainly a good idea to begin with the items you already own or make and take it from there. If the business turns out to be profitable enough, you can easily develop your own ecommerce website so that you no longer have to meet the eBay terms and conditions.

    Make Money With Your Social Media Expertise

    Are you good in social media? If yes, this is another great opportunity to make 50 dollars a day from the Internet.

    With today's gig economy, there are many companies and entrepreneurs who are looking for freelance social media marketers. They pay by the hour and on average, the fees is around $25 to $40 per hour.

    Freelance Social Media Marketer To Earn $50 A Day

    At one given time, you can manage multiple social media pages and ads campaigns with various tools. This allows you to maximize your earnings by multiple folds.

    The best part about freelance social media marketers is that you are able to generate passive income in just a few hours of work each day.

    Virtual Assistant

    Again, the gig economy! The rise of the gig economy is helping business owners to reduce overhead costs and helping you (and me) with getting more jobs and money without having a day job.

    Virtual assistant is one of the most popular gig economy in the world that allows us to earn 50 dollars a day online.

    Earn $50 A Day With Virtual Assistant

    A virtual assistant job scope covers a wide range of services, including administration, filling, data entry, social media marketing, community manager and content writer.

    Virtual assistants are paid by the hour or by project basis, one that can range from around $20 to over $100 an hour, depending on the complexity of the task given.

    Not sure where to start virtual assistant services? UpWork and Freelancer are two platforms you should consider!
