3 Sweet Ways to Make Money Online

From where to what? I hear you ask. Allow me to explain. I am from Australia!

In Australia, we have some fantastically colourful expressions in our vocabulary. Words like blue and mate that describe friends, G’Day means hello, Arvo means the afternoon and the “bottleo” is the liquor store.

One expression that is well known around the country is “Went from chocolates to boiled lollies”.

As everyone knows Chocolates are the top of the tree when it comes to confectionary. But if you cannot afford Chocolate, then Boiled Lollies (Boiled Sweets (UK) and Hard Candy (in the United States), become the fallback for those of us with a sweet tooth. 

The saying “Went from chocolates to boiled lollies” originated in the Australian horse-racing fraternity.

It refers to a thoroughbred horse that, at the start of the race, looks well groomed, has a good history, and appears in peak physical condition. In fact, on appearance it looks unbeatable. And then raced like a hack and came nowhere close to winning.

Therefore, it went from ‘Chocolates’ being the big prize to ‘boiled lollies’, or the minor prize instead.

Now it is a fact that tens of thousands of people around the world have just witnessed their lives going from Chocolates to Boiled Lollies, courtesy of this horrid thing called Covid-19 or Corona Virus. People who had an income (or two) suddenly found themselves without any and struggling to survive.

So, it became important to me to try to offer a way that you can, at least partially, reverse the process and go from Boiled Lollies BACK to Chocolates?


Here are 3 great ways that you can get involved in Online Marketing. At the end of each brief description we have added a link to a training product that will help you to get going. These are quality training programs from people I have known and worked with for a long time and their training has been of fantastic benefit to me, so I highly recommend them all.

Now at this point I should tell you that if you move forward, click on one of these links and purchase the training course I have recommended, I will get a commission for sending you there. Can there be any better way to show you exactly how online marketing works.

  1. Blogging

A Blog is a simple website on the internet that organizes information on a specific subject into Categories and Posts where the latest piece of information is at the top of the list and easy to access and read.

If you can find something that people will read online, then it is not a huge stretch to find something that you can sell to them that relates to their area of interest. Some of the biggest “interests” on the internet are Weight Loss, Health and Fitness, Dog Training, Sewing and Crochet…the list is almost Endless

There is some great training available online on how to set up your blog, but one of the best is from a colleague of mine, Dan Sumner. It is called “The Bloggers Roadmap”. Just follow the link.

So, here is a perfect example of how blogging works. I wrote this post to help suggest a way to replace lost income (or just earn some extra). I posted it as a guest blogger on the blog of my friend John Thornhill, you read it there.

You would also have seen the link to the blogging training and maybe decided to find out more.

Affiliate Marketing
If you want to sell digital products online then you can always produce your own. But honestly, this is a lot of work and, without the right instruction, is an absolute minefield.

If you are just dipping a toe into the water in this business, then the best way to get started is to sell a product on behalf of someone else, as an affiliate. Finding such products is not difficult. There are two really great places to go. They are CLICKBANK and JVZOO. Both sites contain oodles of high-quality products that you could sell.

All you need to do is open an account with them and then login and look for products to sell. Both sites have first class training programs to help you find your way around. However, it should be mentioned that both are sticklers for the rules so make sure you check everything you do with them, so you stay in their good books.

If you decide that Clickbank looks attractive, then I can highly recommend a training program from a man I mentioned earlier, Mr John Thornhill.

Affiliate Promo Formula will teach you the exact same method that John himself used to make an excellent income using Clickbank. It worked perfectly for him and now you can copy what he did to make himself successful.

  • Private Label Rights

Also known as PLR, Private Label Rights products can be eBooks, Video, Audio, Software and Graphics that have been made by someone else. Then along you come and purchase a licence for these products that, depending on the licence, can allow you to do anything from on-selling the product that you bought to being allowed to completely redesign and reorganise the information that you purchased, put it under your name as the author and then sell it as your very own.

Now as you can imagine this is a process that requires some knowledge and understanding of the subject. So if you follow the link at the end of this section, it will take you to a free webinar that will really give you a strong grounding in what is required in this part of the industry and also offer further advanced training that is, in my humble opinion, exceptional.

There are many ways to make money online, but the three I have mentioned here are amongst the easiest to get started with for someone just starting out in this industry.

I hope this article has been helpful to you, the reader, and I sincerely hope that you are able to get over the effects of Covid-19 as quickly and painlessly as possible.

To Your Future….and all it could bring
