How To Make Money On The Side With A Full Time Job

May 28, 2019 0 Comments



There are many different ways out there to make money on the side even if you are busy with your full time job.

There is a lot of info on this subject you can find on the internet.

Many of them talk about making extra money, something around $100, $200 per month through online surveys.

In fact, even making this amount of money with online surveys will take a lot of your time.

You have to participate in many surveys and many of them take at least 15-30 minutes or even one hour to complete.

The number of surveys is limited too which means even if you want to make $200 per month consistently you can hardly do it.

At the end of the day inconsistency, limited number of surveys and low payouts make this opportunity not so attractive to most people.


Is it real to make money without leaving your main job?

Is there then other ways to make a solid amount of money on the side without leaving your full time job? How much one can make per month?

How much time does it take? I will try to answer all those questions in my relatively short post.

When talking about solid income on the side I mean something around $1000-$1500 per month.

I think this amount can bring some change to anyone’s life even if you live in countries with a high standard of living like in the USA, UK, Australia, New Zealand and the like.

I’ve been making this amount consistently since 2015 and can show you my income proof. This is absolutely possible with a full time job.


my income


In fact, I’m making money without leaving my full time job. But thanks to my online business I was able to change my work schedule and now I work part-time (3 times per week).

I dedicate more time to my online business and plan to quit my full time job very soon.

But some people don’t want to leave their main job and I perfectly understand it.

What I’m going to share with you today is about making a solid monthly income without leaving your main full time job.

Quitting your job is up to you. Our main topic today is to find out if it is real to make money without leaving your main job?

How To Make Money On The Side With A Full Time Job

Though there are many different ways to make money online today I will be talking only about one method that can make you a solid monthly side income.

I will be talking about affiliate marketing. Of course, making money on the internet requires like any other filed knowledge and some important skills.

You can learn all this at Wealthy Affiliate. It’s the same program I got my start 4 years ago. I made $44,175 during this time.

Of course, I could earn way more. In this article I talk about how exactly I made that amount of money with income proof.

I also explain why I failed to earn more than that amount.




Niche business

In short, as an affiliate marketer you can make your schedule exactly as you want it depending on the amount of free time you can dedicate to your affiliate business.

All affiliate marketers start doing online business combining it with their main job and when they start making a solid income at some point they quit their jobs.

You can spare 5 hours per week or 10 hours. The more hours you can spare the better and faster will be your results.

First, you need to create your free account and start watching 10 free lessons. It will take 1 hour or so.

If you complete all the tasks required it will take 2 hours or so. You can do it at any time depending on your schedule.

Then if you decide to move forward you will need to upgrade from a starter to a premium account.

You will get access to Online Entrepreneur Certification that includes 5 courses 50 lessons. Most lessons have tasks to be completed.

It will take 1 to 3 months to complete all the tasks. It’s not just about watching videos or reading text tutorials.

It’s combined with completing tasks. As you move forward through the Entrepreneur Certification Course your business will be getting better and better ultimately making you money.

Like I said, moving forward schedule depends completely on you. You can complete it within 1 month too.

The certification course is designed in a way that you can choose the schedule you want and move forward.


Generally speaking, your main task will be doing things like:


  • Completing your profile
  • Setting up your website
  • Setting up your website navigation
  • Deciding on a niche ( your interest or passion)
  • Choosing a product/service you want to promote
  • Doing research of your niche
  • Competition research
  • Keyword research
  • Writing content for your website
  • Ranking content on Google
  • Driving traffic from Google
  • Improving your website conversions
  • Start making sales and earning commissions




I think for most of you these points may not be 100% clear until you join the program and start following the certification course.

I’m just trying to briefly describe the process of making money online.

As you follow it, complete the tasks and do the work your knowledge and skills will be improving over time as well as your income.

You can choose to either write content for your website or set up a youtube channel and record videos for your channel.

Some people prefer writing content while others prefer video marketing because don’t like writing. Both methods are a great ways for monetization.

The idea is to create as more content as possible. The more content you have the more traffic you can get to your website which is good in terms of monetization.

You can choose your own schedule. You can write 1-3 articles per week or even more. It depends on the time you are willing to dedicate to your online business.

Without quitting your main job you can choose your own schedule and create content for your website. The main thing here is to make your schedule and follow it.

If you follow it and take action continuously you can monetize your website or youtube channel and make a solid monthly income.

My income proof screenshots provided above clearly prove that anyone can make money on the side with a full time job and I’m living proof of it.


affiliate promotions


Affiliate promotions

You can choose Affiliate bootcamp course ( 7 courses, 70 lessons) and promote WA to other people as well as many other programs related to make money online niche.

First of all, WA pays 50% commission which is great. As a premium member you can earn a commission as follows: $8 per sale, $23 per sale, $175 per sale.

All these commissions are recurring which means you will be earning commissions every single month.

You can also promote many other programs that you can find on Clickbank, JVZoo or other networks.

Once you get into this niche you will find thousands of other programs you can promote and earn commissions from, such as Salehoo, Shopify, Affilorama, AWeber, Getresponce, Ahrefs, Longtail pro, CPA programs, etc.

There are high paying affiliate programs that pay up to 50% commissions or even 75%.

The more products you review the more chances to earn commissions from them. This niche is highly competitive and can make you a lot of money.

But it requires a lot of time to dedicate to your business.

Over time when you have a lot of products reviews your income potential will grow as well and you can make thousands of dollars per month.

Over time when you get more experience and gain more skills you can start paid advertising and start buying traffic through PPC.

You can buy traffic from Bing and Google and send it to your best converting pages on your website and monetize them much faster.

The easiest way to monetize this idea is through reviewing top selling product from Clickbank, JVZoo or any other digital product network.




Create your own product

You can choose to create your own product, an ebook or video course and sell it.

I’m not going to discuss how you can do it technically because it’s not the topic of this article.

Once you become a member of the program I mentioned above you will learn how to do all this.

There are members that have already done it and can show how to do it technically.

When it comes to creating a product it depends on your knowledge and expertise in a certain field.

It requires some research to know what products are available on the market and what kind of product you can create that others didn’t.

The idea is to create something unique that can deliver value and help others. If you have such a product you can monetize it for years.

Creating it will take time and effort but you do it only once. Monetizing it will continue for years if not forever.



Display Ads


Display ad monetization

Display ad networks, such as Mediavine, Google Adsense, Ezoic can help you monetize your website in a great way.

Once you have your site up and running and getting a lot of traffic, at least 500 visits a day you can sign up to one of these programs and place ads on your website.

Best commissions can be earned from Ezoic and Mediavine. This can make you a solid monthly income without putting much effort into the project.




YouTube monetization

You can monetize your youtube channel once you start getting thousands of views daily. The more views you get the more money you can make.

In fact, it’s one of the easiest ways to make money but it requires a lot of effort prior to monetization.

You need to create quality and valuable videos that others will want to watch and share with others so your videos can go viral and get you a lot of views.
