Main Online Business Strategies – Ideas for Making Money Online
1. SAAS Business
Software As A Service is simply building a website and providing a service that is sold on a monthly basis. So, you are selling memberships which is a great way to make money online. For example, Netflix is considered a SAAS business that you subscribe to monthly to watch movies.
It is when you provide or sell your skills (Gigs) online. For example, if you are a graphic/logo designer you can provide your skills and sell them online.
All you have to do is create a profile and publish your “Gigs” or services on freelancing websites. These websites include Fiverr, upwork, freelancer.com or else. Such website are grand freelancing websites, so they offer great opportunities to earn money online.

Simply, affiliate marketing is promoting affiliate products and services for other companies or people. When you promote an affiliate product, you'll earn a commission per sale or maybe sometimes per lead, action, sign up…
4. Content Creation
This means that you will create content like for example a blog and you publish articles. You may also create a YouTube channel and publish videos. Another option is creating an Instagram account and publishing content on it, whatever type of content and you monetize it.
Monetizing something means to make money from the content you share. For instance, you can publish ads on YouTube videos or publish ads on your Facebook page. Maybe you can sell your services through your blog, promote them, or even provide shout-outs to other services…
5. Online Stores
Creating an online shop and selling products, that can be physical or digital, is one of the ideas for making money online.
What I mean by digital is like selling eBooks, online courses, designs, or logos. Whatever you are selling, you can sell digital products in an online store.
By physical products, it can be mobile phones, maybe your DIY stuff, flowers, whatever you want.
So, these are the 5 main strategies that almost 99% of people who are successful and working online went through.
Applying the 5 Ideas for Making Money Online in My Business:
Let us see now how I applied all these strategies in my online business and how I connect things together.
When you go on my website, the first things you'll see are the main heading, title, menu, email Sign Up box, and the main navigation. So, a simple, clean, and straight-to-the-point website.
If you land on my website and ask yourself “What is H-educate about?”, four main features will get your attention:
You will see in the main heading that it says that the website is all about online business, digital marketing and educational tips about new skills that will help you grow in your business.
The big box with which anyone can use to subscribe to my newsletter. Email marketing is very important if you have a business online or offline.
If you are not building an email list, then you are losing a lot of customers, traffic, and clients. I am using ConvertKit for my private email list. You can see that today I have only 4 thousand subscribers although I'm receiving 264 thousand visits monthly. This is because I keep my list very active to keep a high open rate and click rate.
Through this big, simple, and attractive menu, I can point people to my other services. This means that I'm connecting my online businesses, websites, and services together. I will post on my YouTube channel how I created my website step by step so don’t worry about it. This is an indirect idea for making money online.
You can see that I am again pointing to all my other services like my academy, my blog, my service website, my eBooks, my SAAS services, and the giveaway page.
The idea here is that on my main home page, anyone can know what this website is about. Anyone can subscribe to my email list, so I can build my email list. Additionally, anyone can navigate through the menu or reach any of my services and other websites from the main menu.
How to use the Ideas for Making Money Online inside the website?
The website is like a navigational map to all of my businesses.
I built my academy with thinkific. If anyone clicks on my academy, they will be redirected to where I'm selling my online courses. An online academy is a form of a Digital Store that helps to make money online.
If you go to my blog, you will find articles, tutorials, something valuable that people will love to read and implement. Something that will help people.
On my blog, you will see that I am linking to my main website and other websites. I am promoting my online courses, my other paid services and my other websites as well as affiliate marketing.
If you open for instance any article, let's say one that explains how to install an SMTP server. in the image below, You can also see many links inside this article. These are affiliate links that anyone can use to buy an affiliate product, and I will earn a commission. This means that you can earn money online with affiliate links.
I am using CJ.com to check the numbers I am getting thanks to the commissions.
I am connecting everything together by posting all of my websites' links in my blog. It is dynamic because let’s say you are promoting only the blog, the blog itself will promote the other websites.
3. SAAS Business Models
If you go to my links “by h-educate”, you will have a list of services. In the link shortener, you'll have Link.me.
Link.me is SAAS business model. In short, it's a tool that people subscribe to on a monthly basis to use. Thus, selling monthly memberships is yet another form of making money online.
Back to my main website, if you click on services link, it will redirect you to my services website on which I provide my Gigs (services). I have a total of 6 services now, and will have more soon. So, here on this website, I provide my freelancing services. This means that I sell my gigs for the purpose of benefitting people and making money online.
5. Affiliate Marketing
You can go to my YouTube channel and check my videos. I have multiple affiliate marketing case studies and tutorial videos. Like I said before, it is all about promoting products for other people, for other services.
How Do I Do It? Applying the ideas for making money online in my business.
1. On my main website –
I have a list of recommended services and all of them are affiliate links. So, if anyone goes to my website, checks my recommended services, and buys them, I will get a commission. It is a very basic form of affiliate promotion; it is monetizing the traffic with affiliate links.
2. I promote through my YouTube channel.
In any of my videos, in the description, I share a lot of affiliate links. Also, if you check my channel's main page, you can see I am linking to my website.
3. I include affiliate links on my blog.
I am also linking inside the articles and tutorials of my blog. Affiliate marketing is a great idea for making money online. Want to start an affiliate marketing business? Read this full tutorial on how to start from the beginning.
4. I benefit from the forum that I created.
My forums are very important to the business because I can organize support and make people talk to each other. It is a User Generated Marketing Technique. This means that people will publish on the forum; they will ask each other and will answer questions.
Of course, my team and I are doing a hard job to answer questions almost every day to give the forum a push. Now you may ask: how is this an idea for making money online?
In the forum, you will find affiliate banners and ads. So, I use the forum to generate traffic to my website and to promote affiliate products which result in me earning more.
Another advantage of having a forum is simply getting more organic views. When people go to a topic and start asking questions, they are writing what’s on their minds. When someone opens Google to search for something, they write what’s on their mind. Another advantage is that you will know what the audience wants, what type of content or topic they want.
5. I sell my gigs on my services website.
The services website that I run is a platform to sell my gigs and my services. As we mentioned before, one of the ideas for making money online is to sell products. Here we are selling digital products.
I prefer to use my main website. That is simply because I already built my audience, therefore I don’t need to publish on other websites.
6. My eBooks' page:
You will find on my main website my eBooks' page, in it, I list my own eBooks. I wrote for example “The Power of Emails”, which is one of the best Email Marketing eBooks.
Moreover, on this page, you can see my recommended eBooks. I added some eBooks, and the links are from the Amazon affiliate program. Accordingly, anyone who buys any of these books from my website leads me to earn a commission from Amazon, which is one idea for making money online. As an example, in one of the books, I have this link that will take you to my other website that is called “Books and more”.blog. There, I publish book summaries where anyone can read a book in like 10 minutes.
7. I include advertisements on my SEO and digital marketing website
If you click on “by H-educate”, you will see a list of other services and small free tools. Anyone can download them, and they help in digital marketing and email marketing.
We can see then “H-supertools”, my number one platform and if you click on it; it will redirect to a platform. This is a free SEO and digital marketing platform website. It is not a script, I developed this from scratch. It is like a SAAS service but free, and I make money off of it thanks to the advertisements and the ads with Google AdSense. I advertised with Ezoic. I used it to monetize H-supertools which gave me a push in my revenue. With Google AdSense, I used to make 20 to 30 dollars per day. However, with Ezoic I’m making 40 to 65 dollars. So, I boosted the revenue by using Ezoic on my website.
Ezoic is a service that will scan your website and check the best places to place your ad. It will also choose the best ads for your website and for your audience to give you the best revenue.
8. I sell ad spaces on my H-SuperTools website
One of the ideas for making money online is selling ad spaces. I run some private ads and sell ad spaces. The services I sell are like promoting your business or whatever you want on my websites. I publish an ad on my websites which gets traffic like 162 thousand views per month. So, I utilize everything, my ad spaces, my websites, and my menu to link everything together. So, on this website, I monetize with ads and with affiliate links.
And again, you can see that I am linking back to the giveaways on my main website. Moreover, I am also linking to the forum, to my blog, and so on.
Recently, I started 3 new SAAS businesses, biourl.com, H-socialproof.com, and H-analytics.com. I didn’t publish all these services yet which means you can’t subscribe now; for now, I am selling them privately.
I have my main website, my blog, my forum, service websites, H-supertools, my SAAS services, my YouTube channel. In addition to that, a lot of other content like my Instagram account and my Udemy courses. So, I publish a lot of content on the internet, I talk a lot about my other videos. This is what I generally do and how I work online.

Wonderful article Mr hasan,
But I have blogger blog that I created months back and I’m trying to use it to promote myself and the services I offer but many people are telling me I shouldn’t waste my time on a blogspot blog, that WordPress is better.
I’m confused sir, I’ll really need to know your thoughts about this because you’re a honest guy.
I will nee
Yes, My brother wordpress is better because you have power over content and the websites entirely. That Blogspot may give you problem at long run, infacts they may take down your content because you don’t have power over everything there.
I hope you find this invaluable?

Does Adsense has anything to do with website’s theme?
Like I do proper keyword research before writing an article, still the revenue per day from adsense never crosses 1$
What could be the possible reasons and solutions?
Thanks in advance
The theme does not have to do with AdSense revenue. Please post questions on the forums.
