    I believe it's important to have multiple ways to earn money. You never know what could happen, when a method goes saturated, the business you use to monetize goes under, site gets hacked, laptop stolen etc...

    So I'm asking for those of you who make money, what are you multiple income streams?

    Me personally, I get about $100/month from PPD. All SEO (or lack of really, I hardly update my sites anymore), basically this is pretty much an autopilot money machine at this point. Ain't making me rich, but I can't complain.

    I've recently gotten into Kindle. I have about 3 books released right now, but I'm thinking I should have researched my niches better.. currently earning anywhere form $3-$5 a month from this. Very discouraging, considering the amount of time and effort I put into it.. I think the return is so little. But I have not given up just yet.

    CPM.. Pretty much all my money sites, including my PPD, and others I am experimenting with I use popAds with.. combined I earn about an extra $10-$15 a month.

    I inherited a bunch of collectables from my grandma when she passed away, so for a good portion of 2014 I was selling stuff on ebay.. some months I would make upwards of $600. I pretty much ran through everything I could possibly sell, so nowadays it just sits there. But I did beef up my ebay account, and still have a %100 feedback status. I feel this could only come of good use in the future.

    WHat about you guys?

    You never want all your eggs in one basket... or so I have heard.

    At the moment my only revenue stream is freelancing which I make $500-1000 a month that was on top of my job but got laid off last Monday.

    Currently out of a job I have boosted this up and got a job for SEO work that will be $650 a month starting and that is for 1 site.

    This is a test project that could amplify into 4-5 sites and I will be looking at the least $2500 a month no job needed just straight SEO work.

    Also I am working on a site that is in the "vape" niche that I just purchased a domain for... should be able to sell some products and or use it for Adsense.

    Nice bro. I tried getting into the vaping niche myself, but wasn't much successful, hopefully you have better luck.

    Just back into IM after about a 3 year break. Current streams of income come from selling on Ebay, affiliate marketing, and recruiting people for employment for some pretty popular companies. For the last one, I make a flat fee when I refer someone and they get hired. I hope to start making some money with a new website I am working on. Will probably share the method or something similar if it works out.

    The employment thing sounds interesting. Do you care to elaborate? I have a method that earns me some, but sitting on a list of emails with job leads that I've been waiting to monetize.

    You definitely want to diversify and not keep all of your eggs in 1 basket but I think a lot of people get the meaning of this wrong. It doesn't mean for someone that's just starting out and/or not really making any money online yet. Your first method or goal should have 100% of your focus and you should work only on building that up to a consistent income. Now once you've done that and have the hang of that first method you can then move on to the next thing and build that up. This is when outsourcing becomes a wonderful thing.

    I live in a populated area and there are quite a few businesses in need of new employees, but weren't getting enough applicants. So what I did was contact them via phone and ask if they would be interested in someone to send some people their way. The ones who agreed to it offered me a flat rate for each person that was successfully hired. I get paid once a month from 5 or 6 different businesses directly to my bank account. It's pretty cool. I won't go into my methods as far as finding people to apply, but social networks are definitely a good place to start :willy:

    Freelancing pays most of the bills and nearly helps keep me working to office hours. Some money is coming in through Kindle and affiliate work, now scaling up and focussing on building a good mailing list.

    Right now, its only clickbank and youtube. Not a lot though.
    But in the next year I plan on selling youtube services, and building a PBN to sell links on.
