If you want to make money by doing something you love, I got you! Here at The Wanderlover, we help turn their passions into profits online. It may sound cliche but following something you enjoy has so many benefits, professionally and personally. With a bit of hard work and the right support, we believe that it’s possible to achieve absolutely anything.
With so many options out there, and with the power of the internet, making money from your passions has never been easier. Whether you have knowledge to share or a particular product or service in mind, there are lots of opportunities just waiting to be grabbed.
If you’re ready to take the next step on your entrepreneurship journey, here are five great ways to make money online in 2022.
Create an Ebook
If you are using Instagram for business, then you’ve already taken a step in the right direction. As a content creator or service provider, you’ll probably know the importance of having something to offer your audience. Ebooks are a great option for this as they can increase your following and industry expertise, encourage newsletter sign-ups, and attract new clients. Before creating your book, though, find a niche and figure out what it is you have to offer. For the Travel Influencer Handbook, I created a step by step guide for anyone trying to build a business as an influencer. Within the book I provide tips on brand development and connecting with followers, alongside vital resources such as media kits and helpful hacks. I also keep my ebook relevant by updating it regularly.
Before embarking on a project like this, it’s important to understand your audience as much as possible. Once your eBook is complete, the next step is to decide how you’ll use it. Set up a marketing plan, choose a publishing platform and offer it at a discounted rate to subscribers. Not only will you start earning cash but your audience will begin to grow.

Create an Online Course
If you have a craft that people want to learn, it’s time to start teaching! Creating an online course takes a lot of groundwork but the benefits are huge. Digital learning has grown phenomenally over the last few years because it provides people with the opportunity to learn at their own pace. First, undertake some research and find out if your desired topic is in demand. Are there similar courses out there? If so, what makes yours different?
With the Wanderlover Business Academy, I created an 8-module course designed to inspire, educate and empower entrepreneurs. I made sure that I was offering value for money by providing additional resources, workbooks, and a private 30 minute kick-off call. Extra features like this makes your course more attractive and provides a higher quality of learning. Start by building your course with a course selling platform. This way, you can start earning money as soon as possible.
If you want to make money fast, affiliate marketing is a tried and tested option. With this form of marketing, influencers earn commission by promoting the products and services of other brands. The amount of commission you earn depends on the number of clicks and sales generated by your content. Believe it not, there are thousands of professionals taking advantage of affiliate marketing.
When you start working with a brand, you will be given an affiliate link which is designed to collect the data. Another option is to use offer codes which can be promoted through social media. Affiliate marketing is a quick and simple way to start earning and it doesn’t take too much time out of your day. There are no contractual obligations so you are welcome to use the links however you want. Right now, there are many affiliate programs to help you get started. With referral links on AirBnB to Amazon Affiliates, you’ll be able to get going right away.
Offer 1:1 sessions
Perhaps you are an expert in your field or maybe you have accomplished something really impressive. Why not share your secrets and inspire others to do the same? Private coaching is an increasingly popular choice amongst fellow entrepreneurs. If it’s done right, coaching sessions can offer useful tips and advice tailored specifically to the client’s needs.
When it’s time to get started, set up your own coaching sessions with a target audience in mind. Be sure to list the key takeaways and all inclusions. With my private coaching service, I offer weekly 55 minute calls and a one-off 90-minute goal mapping strategy along with unlimited additional support calls and emails. It’s also super handy if you can collect testimonials to display on your website. This will validate your service and secure even more sign-ups along the way.
Offer Group Programs
Another great service to have under your belt is a group programme. Group programmes are popular amongst creatives as it enables them to learn on the go, whilst connecting with like minded people. Momentum Mastermind is a brilliant example of just how successful group programmes can be. It’s a space where people can ask questions, discuss their fears and learn how to execute their business strategy. This type of coaching builds a community of creatives who work together to achieve their goals. If you find yourself struggling with other commitments, group programmes can also save you a lot of time in the long run.
Before you make money online, be sure to build a solid marketing plan. Platforms like Active Campaign are essential for business growth. This essential business tool covers everything from email marketing to subscription forms. Once your marketing strategy is complete, decide what services you would like to offer. Rather than doing everything at once, focus on one element at a time like an eBoook or online course. Always ensure that the quality is high before sharing it with your audience. You can then begin to build your business plan and increase your earnings.
