My friends, we are almost at the finish line! Today, we are going to discuss the THRIVE phase, which also happens to be the last phase in your online journey. Please do yourself another favor and do not compare your journey to someone else’s. You will be tempted to do so, but take comfort in the fact that you will make it here if you continue to consistently create content that your audience finds irresistible.

Show me the money!

I feel ya my friend! That’s how everyone feels when it comes to monetizing their site. The main three ways to monetize your site are the following:

  • Create a product
  • Host a virtual workshop
  • Affiliate marketing

Create a product

I am a huge advocate of creating your own product. This is your chance to shine, so make the most of your moment! In my opinion, some of the best online products to create are elearning courses.

I love learning by video because I’m a visual learner. Oftentimes, there are concepts that are difficult to explain without using images, charts or diagrams. Plus, videos enable me to learn at my own pace. Clearly, I’m not alone in my line of thinking.

According to elearning industry, by 2019 video content will make up 80 percent of internet traffic around the world. It’s estimated that U.S. adults consume over 5 hours of video a day.

If you’re interested in creating your own online course, I highly suggest using Thinkific ( stay tuned for our upcoming course creation workshop!). It’s a free, extremely user-friendly platform, that enables you to set your own prices. One of the BEST parts, is that you don’t have to worry about hosting your own videos. They truly created this platform with keeping creators in mind, so you can focus on what you do best–CREATE!

Host a virtual workshop

People want to continue their education, but they might not always have the funds to attend an in-person workshop. One of the things I love about virtual workshops is that you have a chance to ask questions live and interact with other folks that are taking the class via the chat box or by phone. Virtual workshops and online courses are definitely a formula for creating an ideal successful learning environment.

Create an affiliate marketing program

You can create your own affiliate program and pay people to market your product or promote someone else’s product in exchange for commission.

Again you will always make more money creating your products. Think of this as your opportunity to create your own marketing team to help you promote your product. Of course, you need to provide enticing commission incentives to encourage others them to do so.

Join an affiliate marketing program

I’m not big on advocating other people’s products unless I’m absolutely thoroughly in LOVE with that particular product. In order for people to trust you, you must make sure that you are being honest with them. The only way you can accomplish this feat is by making sure that you actually use the product you’re suggesting to your audience. You always need to keep in mind how the product will benefit your audience. If you can’t, then you risk losing your audience’s trust. I’ll be sharing some of my favorite affiliate marketing programs and sponsorship opportunities in a later blog post.
