How to Make Money without a Degree

Hey there, this is Clark, and welcome to this site! Today let us share how to make money without a degree. I’ll go first, and if you have any questions or comments while reading what I have written below, DO leave them at the bottom of this page and I’ll be very happy to start a discussion with you, plus it will also be of benefit to other people.

If you’re wondering if it is even POSSIBLE to “make it” in life without a degree, my answer is definitely a yes. There ARE ways to make good money without a university education and I will share what I know with you below.


Making Money Online? Are They All a SCAM?

The Internet has certainly opened up opportunities for all of us, and none more so than in making money. Though I would advise you against going for online data entry, filling in surveys, those “opportunities” that require a lot of your time but pay low wages. They’re good for making some fun money, but I believe that’s not what you’re looking for.

Creating/Growing an online business is definitely not a scam, though you do need to be careful of the countless scams out there. One way to make sure is to find a learn and do training program that lets you try out for free, so that then you can check them out and see if you can really earn money doing what they tell you to do. Nowadays building a business online is easy due to the technical aspects of website building and hosting taken care of for you.

With the opportunities that are available online, you don’t need to create your own product, and you don’t even need to sell anything in order to make money with your website (although you certainly can!).


ALRIGHT, How Do You Go About It?

Well, the process of creating and then growing an online business that many SUCCESSFUL online business owners use is as follows:

1) Decide on your topic or niche. This is the direction of your business. It’s what you’re going to write about on your website. You can be in many niches over time but let’s start with one. It can be anything you love or enjoy – for instance, meditation, fitness, weight loss, musical instruments, traveling, making money niche, anything. With 3-plus billion people online, don’t worry about a shortage of people in any niche.

2) Build a website, which is your own “retail store” on the Internet. A website allows you to more quickly and easily build trust and authority with the search engines (and your visitors), as compared to going through forums and social networks like Facebook or Twitter. Creating a website can take less than a minute, and your involvement can be just deciding on your website name and theme/design.

3) Get lots of traffic (website visitors), which is of course key to making a lot of money. An extra visitor is an additional opportunity to earn some money. To get a lot of free traffic, publish quality posts – in other words, relevant, engaging, helpful content – for your website visitors, which is what the search engines (Google, Bing and Yahoo) are looking for. With trust from the search engines, the relevant post on your website is likely to show up on page 1 of the search results when someone does a search in Google or another search engine. If your post is “ranked” on the first page, then it is very likely to be read.

You don’t have to be an amazing salesman or writer to create a successful business online, just convey your message via your website the way you speak to your family and friends. Spend a few hours daily working on your website and creating/publishing new content, and in 6 months’ time you could earn, say, $2,000 to $3,000 a month. It is also possible to scale your business to earn $20,000-$30,000 per month, say, in 5 years’ time, and it is possible to do so through free traffic.

4) Last but not least, it is time to make money, and one of the most popular methods is affiliate marketing, which involves promoting other people’s/merchants’ products on your website. Another very popular method is placing advertisements (ads) on your site, and each time a visitor clicks on one of your ads you make a bit of money.
