The #1 Way to Make Money Online in 2023 - Social Media Pro

You may not know it, but THIS business started as a side hustle for me…

I picked up freelance work when I lost my job to make ends meet, and I quickly started making more than I did at my previous job.

I quit looking for a new job, and the rest is history.

My side hustle quite literally changed my life, and I want to share my knowledge of making money online with you.

Here are some of the best ways to start making money online in 2023, as well as some helpful tips I've learned along the way in my 15 years of making money on the internet.

Ways to Make Money Online in 2023

One of the first and most obvious ways to make money online is by starting a business where you sell a physical product.

Many business owners with a physical product start by finding a niche, developing a product for that niche, and then selling that product online. In 2023, this is typically done by first selling your product on Amazon to build your customer base and then transitioning to selling the product from your own online store using a tool like Shopify. If you come up with a very unique, in-demand product, this can be a very lucrative way to start an online business.

On the flip side, some things to keep in mind when launching a physical product are the startup costs and the time it takes to become profitable. To launch a physical product successfully, you will need startup capital to cover the costs of manufacturing, importing, or buying inventory. It can quickly go from being a side hustle to being your main gig without it being as profitable as some other ways to make money online in 2023.

This leads to the next option that people generally hop to for making money online which is becoming an affiliate marketer.

With this option, you're still making money online and you're still selling products, but you're not the distributor of those products. Affiliate marketing is a business model where you earn a commission for promoting someone else's product or service. This means you can make money by referring sales to online stores and websites. You can even earn income as an Amazon affiliate, sharing products that you like and use from Amazon.

The good news with affiliate marketing is that it's a low-cost business model (no inventory or startup costs), but it does require a lot of work upfront to be successful. You need to build up your online presence so that you're discovered when potential customers are looking to make a purchase (before they find the original seller). This is how you're credited for the purchase and earn a commission. In order to do this, you'll need excellent SEO rankings and high-quality content that will attract your target audience, either through a blog, YouTube channel, or social media. Once you have a following, you can start earning commissions on sales. However, it can take some time to build up a large enough audience to generate a significant income.

So, now you're likely wondering, what is my #1 way to make money online in 2023?

That's easy. It's been my number one way to make money online since 2009 when I first got started — selling digital services and, in particular, social media management services.

Why Social Media Services?

So, why sell social media services?

Well, in order to sell a service, you don't need a website. You don't need to know any complicated coding, you don't have any startup costs, you don't have to buy any inventory, and you don't have to keep up with sites like Amazon or Shopify to make a profit.

All you need to have is a skill and then find potential clients who need your skill.

In 2023, I believe social media is the best digital skill to have.

Let me break it down for you into two core reasons why this side hustle is the best option for making money online in 2023.

#1: It's in the most demand

Since the pandemic, it has finally become evident to business owners that the internet is essential for reaching their customers. They now know that at any given moment, unforeseen circumstances can arise and that online communication is the only dependable avenue for connecting with their audience and customer base.

This shift has made business owners realize that they need marketing professionals to ensure that their business is well-marketed online at all times.

Now you're probably thinking, why social media services, right? There are tons of different digital services that businesses may need. They could potentially need copywriting services, web design services, video editing services, graphic design services… the list goes on.

However, social media marketing is the ONE skill that touches all of those services combined. Because no matter what other marketing decisions a business is making, social media is the place where their customers are and where they will be sharing those different marketing pieces with their audience. If someone wants to create a YouTube channel or if someone wants to focus on blog content, it all leads back to social media.

Social media is the most ubiquitous skill because it applies to all businesses and to all of the other areas of internet marketing, making it the single most in-demand digital service.

#2: It's an easy and accessible skill

While it may seem daunting or nerve-wracking if you've never offered social media as a service before, social media truly is an easy skill with a little practice.

The truth is, if you have a cell phone and you have a Facebook account, then you already have some of the skills you need to get started. You already know the basic functions of how to upload a photo, how to create a caption, and it just becomes a matter of learning how to do this on behalf of a business, rather than your personal account.

With a simple understanding of what a social media manager does for a business, this is a service that can start putting extra cash in your pocket in the next 24 to 48 hours. You can get a jumpstart on this process with online courses that teach you how to quickly start providing social media as a service and become a certified social media manager.

This is why social media management is my number one way to make money online in 2023. You don't need a website, you don't need any startup capital, you don't need any special skills, and you don't need any kind of degree.

I have been doing this since 2009 and I STILL don't have my own website or a degree in marketing. What I do have is the skill to help and inspire you to get clients in the same way that I and thousands of my students have been doing for nearly 15 years.

So if you're looking to make a little bit of extra cash this year, then look into my number one way, social media management.
