Ebooks can be a hard path to online success too, from my personal experience but as you rightly said, it can be a great gateway vehicle to drive traffic to other monetized sites. Having said that though, getting your ebook on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Lulu, Smaswords etc., is a great way to get noticed and make money overtime. An arresting e-book cover is a MUST! And if you are a DIY freak like me, you could do your own e-book cover for $0. I also use a graphic design software similar to Philip’s.

If you don’t use your garage or driveway you could rent it out for money – particularly if you are in London or another parking-unfriendly city. Just register with a site like JustPark, put your postcode in and wait for desperate would-be parkers to contact you.
IRS expects all self-employed individuals to keep and retain timely records of all business income and expenses. At this time, the law requires issuance of a Form 1099-Misc in situations of payments of $600, more for services performed for a trade, or business by people not treated as its employees. Also, there are many non-business situations where payors pay $600 or more but are not required to issue the form. It would place a tremendous paper work burden on individuals and small businesses to report all payments made for work performed in their home or place of business.

I’d also get active on the social media to help you get noticed. You can use an application like Hootsuite to help you manage and schedule your social media activities.
I mentioned an idea above to create an online store and eBay was one option. Consider selling your own stuff around the house to earn extra money to feed your financial goals. It should be used for those items that are unique (you need a larger audience) and that are easily shipped. Easy shipping is key as you don’t want what you sell to eat up all of your profits in shipping costs. Signing up for eBay is simple and can be done at www.eBay.com.
Some people argue that you can make money without a lot of traffic and while that is true in some circumstances, you will generally need a lot of website traffic to start earning from a blog and that takes a while. Once you’ve reached that point, here are the primary ways to monetize your blog and start earning:
After six months, calculate your total six months revenue from your site and multiply this by 2. Assuming that you leave the site the same, the next six months will probably bring in the same amount of revenue if not more. Instead of keeping your website, sell it.
