best courses to earn money online

1. Tyler’s YouTube WordPress Course

Everything I know about WordPress came from Tyler Moore. In 27 easy steps, Tyler teaches you how to build a website using WordPress from scratch. He covers everything from a domain, hosting, and WordPress set up. Then you learn page design using a plugin called Elementor. The video has racked up millions of views, and Moore creates updated content each year.

How you can start earning immediately:

After you’ve built your first site, it’s time to convert that skill into dollars. Set your price, then start sending messages out on social media, Facebook groups, and email offering to build someone a website for a small fee.

You can also create an account on Fiverr and offer your services. Some persons go to Fiverr for freelancers just to set up the site and install plugins. Create jobs to set up and to design a full website. Once you get your first client, you can use the designs to increase your credibility, which can land you more clients. WordPress designers can easily earn a full-time income. Remote full-time jobs are also in high demand on sites like We Work Remotely.

4. Facebook Advertising Basics

There are hundreds of Facebook advertising courses around. Many of these courses cost hundreds of dollars. While these creators may have found the best way to maximize ads that work for them, it makes sense to just go straight to the source.

Especially if they’re offering the information for free.

After all, Facebook is incentivized to teach you everything they know about running ads, so you can, well, run ads.

The Facebook For Business Page covers topics like creating ads, editing ads, targeting the right audience, and optimizing your campaigns for max impact.

Use your product, consulting, coaching, or service to test as you move along the course contents. If you don’t have a product or service, this 9-minute video by Noah Kagan from App Sumo can help you come up with your next idea.

From there, test your product with your newfound Facebook ads knowledge. Once you get your first sale, you get valuable information about the cost to acquire a customer and the steps you can take to improve that cost.

Another way you can make money? Done for you services. There are thousands of businesses that want to try Facebook ads but are not sure how. Offer to run ads for a small monthly fee or a commission. Your skills can evolve into becoming a Media Buyer or Facebook ads agency.

5. Teachable Course Bundle
