Last summer when I needed to learn how to make money fairly quickly online with a 1 year old and after being left by a narcissist who depleted my bank account and ruined my credit I got to work. I learned so much in such a short amount of time I can honestly say if it wasn’t for the situation my ex put me in I wouldn’t be as successful as I am today. This was my dedication to myself to build myself back up after being torn down completely.
Now the word or term ‘narcissist’ gets thrown around a lot and typically it takes for an individual to seek help to get diagnosed with narcissistic personality disorder. As I was learning new business methods I was healing at the same time. In constantly reading I somehow came across narcissist personality traits. It was scary how accurate every article was. I finally understood why with all that I was learning I wasn’t immediately successful at the things I applied.
I needed to heal from 4 years of being abused mentally and financially.
Once I recognized that my brain started to clear up. It was like I had this fog that was blocking me from seeing what was right in front of me. Out of the many skills I learned self publishing was the one that I favored the most. See publishing a book was something I wanted to do since I was a child.
And self publishing was listed in every passive income article that I would read. So I joined self publishing, low content making, and Amazon publishing groups on Facebook. I also found YouTube to be very helpful in teaching lessons about the process. I thought to myself, “It can’t be this easy.” But it was.
Everything you need to self publish for $0 down is at your fingertips. Accessible on your smartphone in other words. From the information to get you started to the apps to design your covers and interiors. I was on a roll with creating books. I started off with journals, moved on to low content books, next there were workbooks, and when I was ready I wrote nonfiction books of my own.
I will admit that keyword research is a skill in itself but this can be understood by watching YouTube videos, reading articles online or paying for a third party provider. You need to understand how keywords work to make your books easier to find when customers are shopping online. It’s competitive to self publish and be profitable, but with dedication to being successful you will master this if you truly want to.
To design my book covers and interiors I use the app Canva. Prior to books I used the program to create social media posts, and website media. Canva is free to download in the app store. After a year of enjoying the free version I decided to invest in the Pro version because of its added features. You don’t necessarily need to pay for the app monthly subscription if you don’t want to or have the funds.
What I like about Canva is how ridiculously easy it is to use and yet how professional your designs come out. Don’t know where to start with making a book cover? No worries, there are templates for that. Use the templates as a starting point, change the colors, change the fonts, add relative elements, but just don’t use and publish the exact templates that you find in Canva. I’ve seen so many books and journals online (Amazon specifically) where the person didn’t change anything from the templates and honestly people notice repeat covers when shopping online.
Another helpful way to get ideas for covers is to get inspiration from books you see online. Look at best sellers in that particular genre and see what works for best selling authors. I’ve learned you don’t have to reinvent the wheel, just give your product a ‘wow factor.’
I forgot to mention, you do need to know the size measurements or dimensions but this also can be found on YouTube, Amazon KPD (if that’s who you decide to self publish with), and in articles on Google or Pinterest. You literally have everything you need in your hand to get started.
After you have your book design ready it’s time to upload it. I use Amazon KDP because it’s as simple as you upload it, it gets approved within a couple of days, it’s then made available for customers to order through Amazon.com and that’s it. They print and ship for you so there are no worries about having to store inventory and go to the post office for shipping.
Here below is one of my best selling workbooks that I ordered an authors copy of. The quality is actually amazing and the image on Amazon is a bit pixelated due to their program. It’s great that they give you the option to order copies because if you do want to sell from your own website or provide your books to local stores, you can. Which are actually ways to beat the self publishing online competition if that’s something you are concerned with.
Want to make money online? It’s no secret that influencer marketing has become a massive industry, thanks to people like the Kardashians. But these days, glitzy digital influencers are out. Creators are in. Equipped with a lot more gravitas, this new generation of creators is working to create a more positive internet culture. The New Yorker explained it best in a recent essay on the topic: “’Creator’ is a term with a more wholesome air, conjuring an Internet in which we are all artisanal blacksmiths plying our digital craft.”
According to experts, there are more than 50 million content creators out there, working in the digital space and making money online—through photography, writing, video, podcasting and more—and all contributing to the new creator economy. One of the architects in the space is Gigi Robinson, a 23-year-old Gen Z digital nomad who is helping redefine this new digital world from the inside out. When Robinson was 11, she was diagnosed with Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, Mast Cell Activation Syndrome and Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome, forcing her to give up her passion for competitive swimming and find a new hobby: photography.
Robinson has translated that passion into a bonafide online money-making business. She is the founder of It’s Gigi, a creative media company focused on making ethical and intentional content for brands like Best Buy and Spotify, where she hosts a GenZ live audio show on Spotify Greenroom called “Everything You Need Is Within.” In addition, she has grown a healthy social media audience on Tiktok and Instagram, where she shares tips on mental health, chronic illness, body image and more. She also regularly lectures on social media literacy and branding to global companies (Meta, Reuters Pharma, Yahoo, Her Campus) and universities (UCLA, USC, UMass, FIT, Baruch).
If you haven’t noticed there is a war of the social media worlds happening right now. The goal of every platform is to gain as many users as possible and have their app be the first that the user checks when they wake up in the morning.
Most people do this already, but what they don’t realize is that these programs are designed to keep you coming back for more.
Social Media Is Included In Our Lifestyles
It used to be where people would say that they only used social media to keep up with family, friends from high school, or work colleagues.
That is no longer the case. Today, social media is also used for entertainment, therapy, news, and business. And, much more.
Content creators have made a name for themselves through social media. The amount of wealth that has been generated over the last 10 years from social media has been phenomenal.
Millionaires have been made by individuals who learned to maximize and monetize Instagram and Facebook in particular.
It’s not just people with large followings who learned how to make money from social media. Regular people who have had a post go viral have edited their caption and then added their personal website links, or cash handles. Sellers groups have been formed where individuals can promote themselves, and let’s not forget the many marketplace social apps that have been created.
There are many ways to make money with social media. But how? Continue reading and you will learn which social media sites are the best for monetization.
The following social media apps have been listed by the most profitable:
Instagram is at the top of the list because in recent months the platform has collaborated with seller sites such as Etsy and Big Cartel. They, and others, can be integrated to where a shop button can appear directly on the users page.
If you don’t have a store but you own a website, simply add your link in your bio to drive traffic to your site.
With Instagram’s Direct Messaging feature it allows viewers to contact you directly if they see an item on your page that they are interested in.
Include a CTA (Call To Action) in your caption when you post. (Examples: “Click the link in my bio to shop,” or “DM me for rates.”)
Take quality product photos and modeling photos.
Create separate business and personal profiles. Instagram allows you to be signed into up to six accounts at once.
Pay for ads with your most popular products first.
Facebook is unique when it comes to making money in many different ways. On your personal profile you can freely post your products as much, or as little as you want. This tactic works for some, and for others it may come off as spam.
To avoid being blocked or deleted by your friends, there are other ways to promote your products and services on Facebook.
Create a Facebook page. As with Instagram, Facebook allows you to directly link your shop (and website) to your Facebook business page.
Keep in mind, if you create a page you will have to promote it yourself mainly or pay for Facebook Ads.
Facebook groups can be great if you know how to use them correctly. Join groups that are specific to your niche (examples: blogging, fitness, travel, crypto, self publishing, finance, or crafting), as well as join entrepreneurship business groups that allow anyone to participate.
GroupTip: Follow the sellers rules of the groups you are in. Learn which days are for promotions, and if they don’t allow any advertising. Some groups are strictly for providing information, which can still help you succeed in other areas of the website/app.
Earn with the TikTok Creator Fund. The platform knows that creators are constantly finding innovative new ways of creative expression and they want to reward it’s top users.
What is TikTok Creator Fund?
TikTok Creator Fund rewards creators for doing what they do best — making incredible TikTok videos. It’s TikTok’s way of celebrating and supporting creators for their dedication, ingenuity, and spirit.
Who is eligible?
To participate in TikTok Creator Fund, you must meet certain eligibility requirements.
