Amar S .

Hey guys. A lot of you here are veteran entrepreneurs, or it seems. Not sure if I have introduced myself, or if it registered, hasn't registered for me all this while. I am a person, an author and comedian besides a marketing research consultant. Life has mostly been a cost center so far. Don't delve on this paragraph too much, your mind may spin.

Need guidance. People who understand 'digital revenue, cost and profit' besides YouTube ads, please weigh in.

What, exactly are the ways to make money online, and what does it take?

Please talk about websites/blogs, and how/how much money you can make from them, if someone can.

Please talk about selling self-published books and making money from those, if someone has experience in this domain.

Any other online models that can be executed with a small investment (marketplace/ott/e-commerce etc.)

I am a novice technically, so kindly pardon my ignorance. Thank you.

Appreciate your time.

Any strategies to build an inspiration based channel on YouTube faster?

Blogging: how much content should a blog have to be able to do ads

Amitabh Songara

Quality Content and proper optimization will help you build.

You can transcript that video into text and create a blog and embed that video.

Regarding blog monetization, I am bit less experienced.
Experts here can contribute.

Step 1 in choosing something is how much money minimum will motivate you.
For example, there are lots of 20 to 25 year Olds, who may be happy because they make 50 to 1 lakh per month with no expenses - living with parents, no dependants etc and their friends earning 20k to 50k in jobs
While a married person in a big city with 30 to 50k rent might need atleast 2 to 3 lakhs a month to stay in the game.

The choices are
* sell a course
* sell on amazon
* start programming, content writing, digital marketing, etc
* turn into a affiliate blogger / youtuber
* create a digital product - software, course, printables, designs, which you can resell on marketplaces

Amar S

Thanks Shitij. Any detail on selling courses- how/where. Need to learn the stuff you mentioned here. Thanks, appreciate it

Shitij Malhotra

depends on what your expertise is - i just saw a guy selling a course on how to be a better husband and manage mother in law - wife relationships better:-P

you basically advertise through a facebook and instagram retargeting funnel

Amar S 

Wow. That's a subject. Funnel means ads?

Shitij Malhotra

funnel means -
To the whole world - you show a different ad,
To people who saw your website, you show a different ad,
To people who saw page 2 of your website you show a different ad

Amar S

Ok, thanks. I don't have a running website rn. Need one first. Can create courses though. May ask you again.

Shitij Malhotra

you dont need a website also, there are course hosting websites. what will you make the course on

Amar S

I am a comedian and an author. So comedy and book writing comes to mind

Shitij Malhotra

 both good niches...
