Stop Procrastinating! Get Paid Online for Ideas

How you can get paid online for ideas

Believe it or not, you can get paid online for ideas. Napoleon Hill was spot on, “Think and Grow Rich”. That is exactly what it means to get pain online for ideas. You are literally selling your thoughts in an attempt to provide a significant benefit to others.

There a millions of creative individuals that are writing content and publishing it via books, blogs, and YouTube channels. However, these creative writers get writers block from one time or another and with this, they can’t think of a catchy title for their novel, blog posts, or video clip. More often than not they will post a request on Fiverr or UPwork. Fortunately, if you are a seller via these sites you can respond to these request and potentially land these jobs where you will be paid to come up with potential titles for content.

Get paid for names

Get Paid Online for Ideas

Many people get paid online for ideas and you can too!

You can get paid online for coming up with names. These names that people will pay you for are titles of books, names of companies, products, services, apps, baby names, and more. In a “gig economy” where you can pretty much get paid for a variety of online services, you can create a job.

On Fiverr, it is simply as creating a gig. For example, “I will come up with a name for your company”. People get paid for creating names, tag lines, and more.

The problem is, not many people know about this niche. I myself have gotten paid for this very work. For me the approach was very subtle. I edited a book for an author on Fiverr. The author gave me a 5 star review and tipped me. Then asked me to give him a few names for his book. Now I don’t know about you, but I don’t work for free. I believed I charged him $15 to come up with 3 title options for his book. He paid me and decide to take part of 1 of my suggestions and revise it into something different. 

You can get paid for reviews

You can make reviews and get paid for them. Product tester review sites will pay people like you and me to test their products and review them. There are also authors who want beta readers before their books go live and they will pay you to read their books and provide ideas and suggestions for improvement. Then there are the less ethical means i.e., on Fiverr some buyers will pay people for reviews of their amazon books or products.

Actually this is not necessarily unethical. What I mean by unethical are the people that will pay you for a positive review without ever seeing, reading, or using their book and/or product. My words of wisdom around this are simple.

If you engage in something unethical to get paid online, you have to ask yourself 2 questions:

Is this the kind of person you are?

Can you maintain this and continue to get paid online by these unethical means?

Remember you want continued business from repeat customers and referrals. Giving false reviews certainly impact your credit. I have had authors that I have worked with ask me to give video testimonials after editing their books. I chose to decline because my freelance work is proofreading, editing, and writing; not promoting books via video testimonials (although this would be a good gig).

If your ultimate goal is to get paid online for ideas, then create some guidelines for what you will and won’t do as a side hustle and stick to your list.

Social Media

Over the recent years, I realized that people pay for ideas to post to Social Media accounts. I didn’t realize this until at a 4th of July cookout (Black People, We Love our Cookouts!!!). Anyhow, as I sat down to enjoy my ribs I cooked for 8 hours +, my brother asked me what should I post: “Spending time with my family, much love.”

Think about $10, $15+ for a few minutes to craft or edit a social media post of less than 100 words. It’s a no brainer. That’s the easy part. The challenge comes in promoting your services to do this work, and get paid for it online.

Get paid online posting to pinterest

People are get paid online for posting to Pinterest, you can too!

In addition, there are people who get paid directly to build Pinterest accounts with followers and post regular Pins. There is an art to this and there are also apps available that support with creating pins. Most importantly when creating a pin, make sure your pin is offering something to others. Ling at Finsavvy Panda provides a detailed guide for making money from posting pins on pinterest. 

In closing, this post touched on the ways people get paid online for ideas. Unheard of right, but it keeps bringing me back to something President Barack Obama said years ago, the jobs of the next 25 years will continue to be created!

My advice to my readers, create a job. I don’t just go to Fiverr and create a gig. Think outside the box and create a job. Even if you go around your neighborhood and tell elderly neighbors you will bring their trash cans to the street and back every trash day for $5 per week. This won’t work for me, I do it for free for Paul and my neighbor Fred he is in his 80s and walks a few miles each day, and he is also a former marine!

Anyhow, please feel free to leave a comment and I will be sure to reply! I look forward to hearing what you have tried. Let’s walk this journey together.

Huge online earning potential

Why having a blog has huge online earning potential

Paired with the right WordPress hosting plan, a blog has huge online earning potential because it is always online and accessible to readers. This regular online presence increases the likelihood of more traffic to your site!

For those of you who don’t know what traffic is, traffic is the visitors that come to your site. A site with a lot of traffic has a lot of visitors. More visitors in most cases equals a higher online earning potential to earn more money.

Huge online earning potential

Having a blog has huge online earning potential!

Blogs provide information people want

In most cases the information on blogs is one of 2 things, either timely or timeless. When I read blogs, I find what I’m looking for and often times when I look at the date it was published, more often than not, it was published anywhere from 3-5 years ago. This is an example of how some content can be timeless. A blog written about the Covid-19 pandemic would be considered timely because this is a current event in our society. 

Motivation to tap into huge online earning potential

Blogs provide motivation for others. A blog written in the right way, speaks to its readers and inspires them to achieve something. Some authors add humor to their blog and make their readers laugh.

Some blogs provide real stories that readers can relate to and this is motivational. These posts create an “if I can do it, so can you” kind of a feel or effect. Sometimes that is the push or swift kick that people need. Often times people purchase information from self-help books. But I advise all readers to save their money, and visit a few blogs on the topic first. 

Some books come from blogs

As an editor and ghostwriter, I work with many authors who take their content from their blogs and publish it in books. In some cases the authors who do this, are authors of self-help books. So my inside scoop is go to the blog first.

What I often encourage the authors I work with to do, is make sure their book is more detailed and it elaborates on their blog posts. So this way they give their reader something more and something different.

The reason that motivating others is related to your own online earning potential is simple. What we put out as people, is what we attract. Like attracts like – the law of attraction. We have to motivate others to continue doing well ourselves.

Maximize your online earning

Some people mistake and think they can’t earn money online because they don’t have a computer or their computer is too slow or too old (as I write this on a MacBook from 2013). That is not the case. With the emergence of Smartphones and Apps, the possibilities are now endless. With the WordPress App below, you can update your blog, reply to comments, check stats, and more right from your phone from the convenience of your current location.

Speaking of apps, the other night I literally made $10 in 3 minutes from my bed! It was quick, effortless, and enjoyable. I used the Fiverr App to create an invoice and accept payment within 2 minutes. The other  minute, I spent completing the task. Read on below!

   

Find easy freelance jobs

As a freelancer, I can literally do copy and paste jobs. For example, a prospective client may message or email me the text they need proofread and it can range from 1 sentence to several paragraphs. From there, I send an invoice. Once the buyer accepts, I can copy and paste my revised version or put the text in Google Docs and send them the Google Docs version.

With this system, I don’t have to get up to turn on a computer and I can even do jobs like this while waiting in line in a retail store (I have done that many times). I share this with you so you can see the possibility to have a huge online earning potential when I combine my blog with my freelance services.

Blogs can be updated

As a blogger myself, I often explore other blogs in the make money from home genre. What I often find is blogs published in let’s say 2018 with viral posts, will have several updates to those posts. One common update in this genre is when people share their earnings reports.

I recently read a very humbling blog post from Ling at insavvypanda.com. Ling wrote a few posts where she documented her monthly earnings along her journey to accumulating a few thousand monthly in blogging revenue. All great post by the way! But what was humbling for me was the fact that one of her updates to one of her posts was how she would no longer be posting her monthly earning reports.

In addition, to Ling at insavvypanda.com, I want to mention another very successful blogger I recently came across Virginia Nakitari at Earn Smart Online Class.com. Last year, she wrote a post discussing her earnings as a blogger. One of the highlights I want to mention, is that she posted her earnings as motivation to other bloggers out there. The point I want to make as I reference these 2 very successful bloggers is exactly what I stated above: 

“These posts create an “if I can do it, so can you” kind of a feel or effect.”

As you can see, as a blogger and a writer, I am also an avid reader. I read lots of blogs about information I am interested and equally important information that I write about. So although I have my methods for improving and maintaining a huge online earning potential, I continue to acquire additional knowledge used by many of the experts before me. 

One piece of advice I learned came from Michelle at MakingSenseofCents.com. In her post titled “5 Ways I Made My Blog Go Viral – 2,000,000 Views A Month in One Year!”, she hit on some pillars for being a successful blogger and having a huge online earning potential! Talk about an inspirational post…

You can always learn new ideas 

In addition, Michelle discussed her and husband’s journey of launching their blog which included preparing pre-launch posts or getting blog posts ready before the site went live. This was big for me because again, I am also a ghostwriter.

prepare Blog posts pre-launch

Bloggers prepare lots of blog posts pre-launch

As a ghostwriter I write a lot of content. I recently realized some of that content goes towards the pre-launch posts that Michelle was writing about. Bingo! Content, content, content, before you even have a web hosting account.

Make blogging mutually beneficial

I love blogging because it offers me an escape that benefits me and my readers. I can write to and interact with my audience compared to being a ghostwriter where I just write for an audience that I will never engage with, while at the same time supporting the person claiming the text in their pursuit to tapping into the huge online earning potential from the posts.

If I could leave my readers and potential bloggers with 1 piece of importance advice, it would be, to write and write often. Notice, this doesn’t mean publish everything you write. I have come to the realization that sometimes I need to delete drafts I have written, and I am ok with that. Thank you again for tuning in. In closing, a blog is like an investment. What you put in it will greatly impact what you get out of it. Just like any other reasonable investment, there is huge online earning potential in a blog!

I made $10 in 3 minutes from my bed! Holy Crap!!!

Last night, I made $10 in 3 minutes from my bed!!! I was ecstatic, that is why I just had to publish this post!

As I lay in bed, and my wife and I were preparing to watch Waco on Netflix, I got an alert on my phone from Fiverr. It was a repeat customer asking me if I could do express editing!!!

I made $10 in 3 minutes

I made $10 in 3 minutes from my bed!

As you can see from the screenshot, my phone was dying and I had placed it on the charger only moments before. I also turned the sound alert off for Fiverr notifications for the night so not to wake anyone up. 

A Bright Screen!!!

But once my phone screen illuminated, all I could think of was “Money, Money, Money, Money” – Theme song of Ted Dibiase The Million Dollar Man (back when wrestling was good)! 

Anyhow this request was perfect timing. My wife got up to brush her teeth. I downloaded the document titled “4” (from screenshot) and created a $10 offer. The document was 6 sentences long and the spelling, word choice, and grammar were all awful. 

Google Docs helps me make money in minutes!

$10 in 3 minutes from my Iphone

I made $10 in 3 minutes from my Iphone!!!

While working in Google Docs suggestion mode to track changes, I made corrections in about 1 minute. Create the clean copy of the document in about 1 minute. And in minute 3 the document was already sent back to my customer!!! I awoke this morning to another 5 star review! 

That’s how I made $10 in 3 minutes from my bed!

Ironically, I discovered that there is a guy who goes by the name “Coffee Shop Millionaire” doing the exact same thing, just from a coffee shop. My challenge to him is I don’t have to leave my bed! However, please consider his approach as his system may work for you as well!

One very important tool I have mentioned above and also in previous blogs is Google Docs. Google Docs is very convenient because it allows users to work off of a smartphone! Also, best of all, it’s free!!!

Let this post serve as further evidence that I make $100 per day online!

Moving forward, this post is a miniature carry over from yesterday’s post Easily Make $100 Per Day Online Without a Computer Right Now! The reason I say this is because first, that $10 is added to the income I accumulated for yesterday. Second, because I am trying to communicate to all of my readers out their how you can easily make $10 in 3 minutes while in your beds, drinking your coffee, waiting in line somewhere, in your car parked somewhere, etc. I made money in minutes, imagine if I keep this up, the possibilities to Make Money Online During Covid-19 Pandemic are endless.

This goes back to how to Instantly Increase Online Earning Potential. If you have a smartphone and/or internet access, you can do this! In closing, please share this post and also leave comments regarding your progress, roadblocks, questions, concerns, etc. and I will certainly reply!

Easily Make $100 Per Day Online Without a Computer Right Now!

To make $100 per day online without a computer is easy if you simply put the right structures in place. First, let’s talk about automating the task to do so as much as possible. Again, this goes back to setting up the right platform, which in my case is Fiverr. Fiverr has it’s pros and cons but when it comes to automating my ability to make money online,  Fiverr helps in a big way.

 

Make $100 per day online

I make $100 per day online

As you can see from the screenshot this is from today April 28, 2020. When I woke up I already had a customer order in cue for $15. This goes back to the automating process I brought up briefly above. In order to make $100 per day online without a computer, you need some automating power. 

Automating will allow you to accumulate orders while you sleep. I didn’t not interact with this client until I woke up and received the alert on my phone. But as you can see that was about 1 hour after the order was placed.

Again, the power of Fiverr! Fiverr allows profiles to be set and orders/services to be purchased with no interaction between buyer and seller. Of course I interact with my buyers, but only during my waking hours. This results in improving your reputation and credentials on Fiverr. 

The last thing I want to say about automating relates to not having a computer. If you think you can’t make money online each day without a computer, you are very wrong. When I used to frequent various libraries around my state, I would often see computer labs overflowing with patrons. To access and set up a Fiverr account, you can simply use a public library. Fiverr isn’t on a blocked list, there is no nudity or inappropriate content. 

Think about it like this, you want to make $100 daily and you don’t have a computer, go to the library, a friend’s house, family members house, or use a smartphone to download the app. To create your account you may need to go directly to Fiverr.com 

Other than that, you simply need to set it up and create a regular schedule of when you will check in. Also, one way to support automating is create a timeline for all jobs that is manageable. I offer 24 hour delivery for editing documents up to 500 words. This is manageable for me, even if I can’t check my account multiple times per day because I have at least 24 hours to finish a job.

Using Multiple Sources for your Online Income

I also use my email and Paypal to make $100 per day online. Again this is something you don’t need a computer to do. Why not? Because to access email and PayPal you can use the Gmail & PayPal apps on your smartphone. Or you can go to the library, a friend’s house, family member’s house, etc. All you really need is the chance to access the internet at least 1 time per day. This enables you to see request for orders and process invoices. 

Now, I am going to share how I did this process similar to Fiverr today on April 28, 2020.

PayPay to make $100 per day online

PayPal invoice and email requests, help me to make $100 per day online.

Proof thatThis is how I make $100 per day online

Proof that I make $100 per day online. Payment was submitted by customer earlier today.

Again, as you can see in this screenshot, this was sent today April 28, 2020 first thing in the morning. I checked my email and had a request from the repeat customer to review her essay consisting of approximately 800 words. I replied and sent an invoice.

One strategy that gets me a lot of customers via email or my website The-Professional-Proofreader.com
is that I charged $10 per 500 words. While on Fiverr, I charge $15 per 500 words.

My customers get the same service and turnaround time, but as a token of my appreciation for their business outside of Fiverr I provide a generous discount which also offers Fiverr’s excessive Buyer and Seller Fees.

Another strategy I employee is retaining as many repeat customers as possible. Both of these screenshots come from repeat customers.  

If you want to make $100 each day online, the formula is simple.

Over deliver and make $100 per day online

Over deliver to make $100 per day online

  • Create your process for automating.
  • Attract and retain repeat customers.To create a process for automating look into setting up your Fiverr seller’s account. Create your gig. When it goes live, that means you are ready for customers to view your profile identify your services and make purchases without communicating with you. Attracting and retaining repeat customers is all about customer service. “Under promise and Over Deliver” (I saw that watching Waco on Netflix), but I have heard it many times as a freelancer. Go above and beyond.For example, yesterday I proofread and edited an 8500 word literature review chapter of a dissertation. I agreed to just do chapter 2 of the document, however I did the reference list as well. Over deliver and you will be glad you did. In some cases you may even get a tip!

Quick Recap to Money daily online

Can you make $100 per day online without a computer? Absolutely. All you need is access to a computer. This also depends on your service. If you are doing over the phone consultations, you may need access to the internet periodically to receive and process orders. Even if you are editing papers for customers, your smartphone can get Microsoft Office or you can use Google Docs. 

Automate, automate, automate, I can’t say that word enough. Actually, I could say it a few more times. But the point is, create systems that allow things to happen while you sleep. If you are selling a service or goods, you need to check in at least 1x daily. A blog, you need to check in as well but your customers will take action in absence of interaction with you. Get yourself a plan for automation and you will no doubt be in a position to make $100 per day online. Everybody else is doing it, now you can too! I am off to complete those jobs.

2 Things You Must Do to Make Money Online During Covid-19

Instantly Increase Online Earning Potential

Instantly Increase Online Earning Potential

Awareness of Potential to Earn a Living Online

This post is based on creating awareness of how you can earn a monthly income online and how much income you can earn online each month, what I refer to as your online earning potential. But before we jump to awareness, we must start with desire. According to Webster.com, desire means: conscious impulse (see IMPULSE entry 1 sense 1) toward something that promises enjoyment or satisfaction in its attainment (Webster, 2020).

For the purpose of simplicity, let’s use desire interchangeably with the word “will” or the two words “want to”. I often hear people saying I wish I could make money online. That saying can be split into two sayings; the first “I wish I could make money online.” The second being, I wish I could make big money online. To both comments my response remains the same, you can! You can make money online and yes you can make big money online. Knowing this information moves us from just wishing we could make money online to confirming we actually want to make money online. And to that, I ask all of you, do you truly desire to make money online? If the answer is yes, then do so. Find your skill set and if you can offer a service, do so via Fiverr. If you can offer your skill set through a blueprint, step by step process start a blog by using the low cost WP Engine – Startup Plan

“Whether you think you can or can’t, you are right either way.”
-Henry Ford

Desire to Earn Thousands Online

If you even think you want to make money online, then your desire will fully confirm for you if this true. When you have a burning desire to obtain or achieve something, your mind helps your body establish all the conditions to do so. If this is not the case, then you truly don’t have the desire, but rather you are just saying you do.

Online earning potential is significantly impacted by one’s desire to earn money online. I always hear people saying, I wish I could make more money; they continue saying this for months and years and it becomes part of what they say, kind of like when they say hello to someone. I had a desired to earn thousands of dollars online each month and I achieve that. Therefore, I recognized my online earning potential and my mind helped me to create the conditions necessary to turn this desire into results. Some of the conditions my mind has helped me establish are:

Waking up earlier to have time to complete online gigs through Fiverr and through my proofreading website.
Setting time in the evening to complete online gigs.
Presenting clients with a turnaround time that allows me to remain in control of when I choose to work.
Creating the appearance that I am always available for clients.
Reading about ways others have achieved their monthly income online.

Learning to Earn from Netrepreneurs 

It would be nice if you had a mentor, who has done this work and achieved great results. I didn’t have one, so I read. Sometimes I would sacrifice not working, to simply read and better myself. I did this on a mental/spiritual level, on a leadership level, and on a business level. The most important tip from my list above is reading about about the experiences of other successful netrepreneurs who have mastered how to make money online. 

Fiverr Online Earnings January 2020

I make over $2,000 on Fiverr alone each month.

This has had a huge impact to my success online. For example, when I read this article How These 3 People Make 6 Figures A Year On Fiverr, that same month I made over 2,500 on Fiverr alone, which brought my total to over $3,000 that month. For the next several months I averaged about $2,200 monthly just from Fiverr alone, which is not too bad at all. Before reading that article I always looked at my online jobs as a source of unlimited income. This work is not a fixed salaried but a representation of how much do I want to work, which equates to how much I make. So, if I did double of my best month, I could have over $6,000 per month. Again, going back to Henry Ford’s quote and my desire. When you have a desire, the conditions will manifest in your life. If they haven’t, then there is some doubt in your mind. 

 

Online Advertising and Affiliate Marketing Revenue

My first experience with making money online was with Google Adsense and Commission Junction. These are 2 totally different mediums for generating revenue online. Basically, Google Adsense and Commission Junction allow website owners to monetize their content by inserting adds on their pages. The difference between the two is Adsense operates on a pay per click basis or at least it did when I used it. And Commission Junction operates based on leads and/or sales. Basically, I would sale adds or leads and get paid by the two organizations for driving traffic and sales leads to their merchandise.

In order to make money online and hone into my online earning potential, I created multiple websites consisting of content that I was somewhat knowledgeable of including College Football, Scholarships, Getting your GED, and Getting Student Loans. I taught myself how to code my websites using HTML and CCS coding. Let’s just say it took me months before I earned money and I was jumping up and down the first time I earned $.25! It was not much but I felt accomplished.

 

Fast forward to 2016, I had this urge to get all of my credit card debt down and improve my credit score. First, I stopped using my credit cards. Then I called all the card services for each account and requested lower interest rates. To my surprise, I got 1 card issuer to give me a rate that was 3% lower. The rest said I’m sorry we don’t offer customers lower rates (*I later found out this was not true).

As I became more educated on this process, I designed an informational website for improving credit. The site may have produced a few hundred dollars through sales leads but it was nothing compared to the $13K I made over a span of several years previously. My new thought was, how could I earn money online? Then I stumbled upon Fiverr and realized people were getting paid $5 to perform task ranging from spelling someone’s name with rice, doing a voice over, reading someone’s paper and critiquing it, and more. That was it, this was my moment.

Then, I arrived on Fiverr.

Monthly Earnings on Fiverr

Earning over $1,000 on Fiverr, amount shown doesn’t include pending sales.

Earning as a Freelancer

The first thing I did was go through various pages and explored topics. Then I reflected on a service I could offer. The lightbulb went off, I recently proofread 2 professors research before they submitted for publication. I could offer proofreading services! Fiverr refers to jobs as gigs. As I think about my first gig on Fiverr, I must have told the buyer I would proofread his 40,000 word document in 24 hours for $5. I will never forget it, I was at my daughters Cross Country tournament. I checked the buyer request and there it was: Looking for a proofreader, 40,000 words. Budget: $5. I’m going to be real, that gig was awful. I was totally selling myself short, it wasn’t worth the time or the sacrifice, I must’ve been up until 4:00am trying to meet this deadline for a measly $4 after Fiverr’s 20% fee for all sales.

Moving forward, I continued at this pace because the way I saw it, if I did 10 $5 gigs per day, I could make $50 per day the equivalent to a part-time job. At that point, my online earning potential was low because I wasn’t really sure how to navigate and charge higher prices. I thought I hit the jackpot when an Attorney posted: Looking for proofreading 20,000 words. Budget: $1000. Not really understanding how budgets worked or that they are negotiable, I wrote him, I will do this for $100! He accepted and told me if I did a great job there would be a huge tip. Long story short, he tipped me $250. This was my new regular customer. Then we parted ways when he requested I sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) due to the nature of his documents. I disagreed and that was the end of it. 

Using your Skill Set to Earn Money Online 

At this point, I was 2 years into my doctoral program. I was proofreading on Fiverr and for professors. I was then advised to get a graduate research assistant position to get paid to proofread research and assist with research as needed. That is when I stepped my proofreading up a level. I began reading everything from dissertations to novels, screenplays, Amazon Ads, etc.

My dissertation gig had 3 levels, Basic charging $165, Standard at $230, and Premium at $280 the money was coming in. I had made $10,000 in one year. Making big money online suddenly became my reality. In my previous online money adventure, I accumulated $13,000 in several years, this was only 1 year! Your online earning potential increases when you have credibility. You can gain credibility from reviews and from referrals. When you have credibility it increases your online earning potential because you can charge higher prices, and best of all, you are justified in doing so and this will cause your clients to pay your rates!

To Make a Post Go Viral or Make a Viral Post?

Fast forward to 2019, I hit my biggest months of making money on Fiverr. I made several thousand dollars each month to close out 2019 and best of all, I remained a Top Rated Seller on Fiverr! This is the story of how I turned my online earning potential into a goal.
