41) Earn Money with Forums
Forums are live discussion boards that attract a lot of footfall because of the kind of information you get to view there.
Either you can join existing forums like Warrior Forum or you can create your own forum. Either way you can use them as an investment strategy to earn money. On your own forum, you can make money by showing advertisements.
Once the forum starts getting a high number of memberships, you can also open a premium registration or upgrade facility and offer premium products and services.
No Internet marketing guru will tell you the real worth of forums but it is there..believe it.
42) Sell links on Blogs
There are marketers who would love to pay you for placing permanent links on your blog content. Of course, there is a certain criteria like:
- Blog Page Ranking
- Alexa Rank
Even if your blog is PR1, you can try this strategy. Or if it is not, you can still try because there are certain people who are willing to look at content quality and not PR or traffic.
What you have to do is place the link on your chosen keyword or the one provided by the client. The cost of such links starts from $1 and well, there is no limit.
It all depends on your negotiation.
