Creating an E-book won’t be a bigger deal. If you do have the time you can make an e-book, release a sample of that on the web for free and ask them to buy for the full version. it is the trending money-making model.

7. Paid-Consulting/Reviews

Paid consulting and Paid Reviews are the most trendy ways to make quick money online. For this, you need to have a good grip on the subject that you’re working on. at the same time, you need to have authority in the market place. 
Simply no one will hire you to review your website. They need certain proof. Which can be your work, like website, previous clients, and other stuff. 
Reviews
It is similar to selling your services online. The only difference is you need to be interactive and able to find the flaws in the system. This comes with experience. 
Many top bloggers regularly do this kinda stuff. 
Selling online space is relatively new. Back in 2013, there is no such thing call digital real estate. But now news blogs and travel blogger are selling their blog/digital space. 

8. Selling your “Space”


If you’re placing ads in between your post, you kinda using this method. However, this is a little bit the same as google ads. 
The only difference is you get to know what you’re dealing with. Which means you’ll know who is trying to promote or want to buy the space in your blog. These kinds of deals are often made with real estate bloggers. 
If I buy a certain portion of your blog, then ill have the control of that part. I can promote my products or I can also use that place to promote other products or services too. 
It is similar to Realestate. You own the land, but you sell a little portion of it for “premium”. 
You can sell the space for a lifetime or you can lease it (for a certain period) as well. 
If you intend to make money this way you make sure the buyer is authentic and prepare the policies and other legal stuff carefully. 
These methods are not given much importance due to lack of trackability and the difficulty in placing ads according to the buyer request. And this also includes a little bit of coding. So many simply ignore this type of promotion.
One of the steady money-making tactics is paid link building. You know that backlinks are very important for SEO ranking right. Similarly, you can charge those who ever request you to promote their links. 

9. Paid-Link Building

It is one of the oldest link building strategies that was followed by many bloggers in the early days. but this kinda tricks are banned by google. 
However, these are being used by a few bloggers to date, in a way that Google has no right to ban them. 
Link building
Simply pasting the bulk of links in your blog post is not going to help you in any way. While you’re posting backlinks you need to be very careful, where you’re pasting them. 
Many bloggers, especially in the fields of Finance, Automobiles, and Healthcare bloggers charge a hefty price just for placing one link. The simple reason being the price of that product or service that they are pasting there. 
If you intend to choose this kind of promotional aspect, you need to be very careful which whom you’re dealing with. 
Here the ROI is high, at the same time risk is very high as well. 
And the last but not the least, Running campaigns. Famous bloggers regularly do these campaigns. They get bulk money immediately. This needs authority, and grip over the subject that they are trying to do. 

10. Running Virtual Campaigns


You can also run campaigns as well. For example, you’re organizing an event and the person who needs to attend has to pay some Fee. 
This not simple. But if you have a good follower base and able to achieve good traffic to you’re blog, then it’ll be easy to run virtual campaigns. 
Running Virtual Campaigns
