How Can I Make Money Online With Sales Funnels And Email Marketing?

UPDATED: November 15th, 2023

If you’re wondering “How Can I Make Money Online?“, let’s start with a couple of simple questions about how to go about it:

  • Q: What’s the quickest way to earn money online?
  • A: Clone or replicate an existing proven business.
  • Q: What’s the best and most consistent way of generating online income?
  • A: By using email marketing.

Many people turn to the online world in the hopes of being able to replace their salary from a 9-to-5 job by making money online.

Some may be happy simply with generating a little extra income on the side to cover a car repayment or other regular bills.

Most, however, think it’s relatively easy.

A bit like people in the Gold Rush years hearing about gold in them thar’ hills.

Many of those made the mistake of dumping everything to go dig for gold and losing everything in the process.

The same happens in the online world.

Building a business online takes time, just as it does in the “real” world.

The major difference is that online business expenses are way less than bricks-and-mortar ones.

The dream is to have several passive income streams so that if any one stream goes down, your whole online livelihood won’t go with it.

Getting Real

There is no push-button solution that will turn your PC into a money fountain.

You’ve gotta do the work, no matter what program, course or training you follow and no matter what online business model you intend to pursue.

The rewards though, if you become successful, can be huge.

After any personal money issues are covered by what you earn online, your next goal will probably be time freedom.

It’s one thing to switch from a 9-to-5 job to a work from home job, but if you’re putting in all the hours God gives, is that trade really worth it?

Time is the one commodity we all have in limited supply – be you rich or poor.

And, once it’s gone, it’s gone for good.

There’s nothing you can trade that will get that time back.

And if you want a reminder of the importance of your time, watch this video…

So, ideally what you want is a profitable business that gives you plenty of time to spend with family and friends, and doing the things you love.

Affiliate marketing is a great way to build a business online.

But it does take time to get your site established, create all the content for it (on an ongoing basis as well) and have it listed high in the search engines so it pulls in traffic.

If that’s a model you want to follow, the absolute best training available is from Wealthy Affiliate (check out my review of it here if you’d like to know more).

Once you’ve learned the ropes, you can start creating more websites and the time and monetary costs will be far less for these.

But it does take time to build up your website assets.

The affiliate marketing model relies on what I call “drive-by sales”.

Someone likes what you’re selling or promoting through your site and buys it.

If you’re lucky, it’s a subscription-based product so you earn regular monthly commissions.

But once the initial transaction has gone through, you’ve lost the ability to contact that customer.

They belong to the product owner now and you can’t promote anything else to them.

And so you have to wait for another visitor to come along and buy another product from your site before you see another commission.

It’s also worth noting that most people don’t buy something the first time they come across it.

And if they first encounter a product they like on your site, they may end up buying it somewhere else in the long run.

Why List Building Matters

The Money Is In The List

Smart affiliate marketers build email lists so that they can repeatedly market to their subscribers (if you want to know why list building matters, check out this post).

It’s one of the best and most consistent ways to make money online.

Instead of sending visitors directly to the sales page via their affiliate links,  they send them to squeeze (opt-in) pages instead, so that they can capture the visitor’s email address.

Typically, the visitor is then redirected to the affiliate offer and then receives a short email series over the following few days that re-exposes them to the product they were interested in.

If they didn’t buy the first time they were sent to the sales page, the email series gives you, the marketer, several more chances of prompting the visitor to buy through your affiliate link.

After the email series is finished, you can still send offers to your subscribers for the same product or for different offers.

With an email list you convert your drive-by customers into potential repeat customers.

Setting up an email series can be a time consuming task.

There’s an art to writing them so that you’ll get a good response from your subscribers.

And you have to mail consistently.

Daily is best.

If you want to circumvent that process, you can always hire a professional to write and post your emails for you.

Your time and energy might be better spent on other aspects of your business.

If hiring a professional is outside your budget, you can always buy a quality email series but you’ll need to manually add them into your autoresponder.

These email sets are either generic enough to be used to promote any product or are designed to promote specific products.

Here are some good options:

I would recommend that you rewrite these emails in your own voice so that they’re not just stock emails that your subscriber could have received from another affiliate marketer.

Many marketers make the mistake of thinking they have to learn how to do everything themselves from building websites, writing creatively, creating squeeze pages, hooking them up to an autoresponder, creating bonus pages and product delivery pages, writing emails and so on.

That’s a recipe for disaster.

No one has the time to become an expert in all those disciplines.

That’s what outsourcing is for.

Play to your strengths and delegate other tasks to people who know how to do them better.

So, getting back to that ideal business that both frees up your time and still gives a good, sustainable income and the answer to the first question posed in this post…

How Can I Make Money Online?

Spencer Mecham - Free Case StudySpencer Mecham’s Free Case Study About How He Made $10,000 In 20 Days

The quickest way to start earning money online is to clone a proven business. This is what happens in the real world with franchises like McDonalds and Starbucks.

Here, the entire business infrastructure is already in place. You don’t have to build anything. You essentially buy a license to use that business and all its assets.

The best affiliate marketing training courses these days include sales funnels that you can clone. You just paste in your affiliate links and you essentially have a business in a box that’s ready to go.

Courses that provide these resources are Spencer Mecham’s Passive Income CourseJames Neville-Taylor’s RPM System, Zach Crawford’ Affiliate Marketing Training and the Easy Commission Funnel.

If your budget is small, then start with a free sales funnel like this one. There are multiple programs promoted through it, all of which are free to join.

The Beauty of Sales Funnels

Simple Sales Funnel

Now I need to talk about something called Sales Funnels here.

They’ve been around for years and used by product developers, but not so much by affiliate marketers.

If you’ve bought products in the internet marketing niche, you’ll have been exposed to a sales funnel.

You’re presented with a free or low-cost front-end offer to get you in the door. And then you’re presented with a succession of increasingly priced upsells. You’re also added to the vendor’s mailing list.

The vendor actually makes their money from the high-priced upsells rather than the front-end product.

[Supermarkets use a similar approach by putting bargain and discounted products near the door. They’re known as loss-leaders. The supermarket actually loses money on sales of these discounted products but more than makes up for that from the other products you end up buying, once you’re in the door!]

Most affiliate networks now pay out affiliate commissions on all products in these sales funnels. But not always.

Once you’ve been added to the vendor’s mailing list, they can send you even higher-priced offers that are not included in the sales funnel that the affiliate gets access to. And if you buy one of those offers, the affiliate does not earn a commission.

If you happen to be an affiliate, then you’re cut out of the commission loop here.

If you want to understand sales funnels better and why they’re so powerful, watch this great explanatory video.

Business In A Box

Business In A Box

With the RPM System, you get the whole business. Whenever a product is sold, it’s through your affiliate link and you get the commission.

This is a complete system and it’s 100% free. Everything you need is included from free products you can give away, a squeeze page to build your list, the entire sales funnel and emails to send out to your leads that contain your affiliate links.

To set up a system like this from scratch yourself would take a couple of weeks at the very least, plus all the expenses involved in buying the tools and services needed to achieve the desired result.

The strength in this system comes from the email marketing section. This is the engine that exposes your leads to multiple products, that keeps your leads engaged and that drives sales.

In essence, this is the optimal system as it combines a squeeze page, a sales funnel, list building and email marketing, all under one roof. And you need little technical expertise to use it.

All you need to do with the Affiliate Freedom Funnel is promote your squeeze page link and the system does the rest.

You also don’t have to worry about finding products to promote. You only need to get people into the system and from there on the system does all the marketing and sales for you. This is the way to make easy money online.

Traffic Is The Key To Success

The Key To Success Is Targeted TrafficFor this business to work, you need to send the right kind of people, the right kind of traffic to it. And this is where your business expenses should go.

You can get traffic from lots of places online but probably the best place to get traffic is from YouTube.

If you’re afraid of appearing on camera, you should push outside of your comfort zone.

But if you’re not willing to, use on online video creation app like InVideo or Instant Video Wizard to create videos where you don’t need to be on camera.

If that option is outside your budget, then the next option I recommend is for you to buy traffic from Udimi.

You’re buying solo ads here from a wide variety of vendors. My post here explains how to find the right vendors for your offers.

There’s no point in buying traffic that doesn’t convert into sales – it’s simply a waste of money.

So always track how your ads are converting into email signups, and sales.

LeadsLeap is an all-in-one marketing platform (open a free account) that allows you to set up link tracking for your affiliate links.

There is a paid Pro upgrade for LeadsLeap  which gives you access to additional and advanced features.

If you upgrade within the first 24 hours, you’ll pay $23/mth instead of the regular $27/mth (a 15% saving per month).

There is another service that can do link tracking for you – ClickMagick … but it’s three times the cost of LeadsLeap.

Want To Be An Affiliate Instead?

Want To Be An Affiliate Instead?

But maybe you don’t want to buy yet another product or system. Maybe you can’t afford to.

What about promoting the RPM System as an affiliate instead?

Sign up here (it’s free) and start promoting the funnel (and other products) with your affiliate links.

This is one of many free ways to make money online.

So promote as an affiliate and lose out on some commissions…or use a pre-built funnel and get commissions on all sales…

Make a few sales with this option and you’d be able to afford to join Systeme or Clickfunnels or one of the training courses I mentioned above yourself, if budget is currently a problem.

A Different Sales Funnel Solution

UPDATE 15 November 2023: Since I first wrote this post, Clickfunnels 2.0 has been released and while that version now includes an autoresponder (finally), the price has also gone up by 50%!

Clickfunnels 1.0 was $97/mth which was already pushing the limits on what I was prepared to pay for a service like this but $147/mth is just way too expensive (and unjustifiable in my opinion) for any solopreneur unless you’ve got money to burn.

So I cancelled my Clickfunnels account and subscription and looked around for an alternative.

That initially turned out to be Builderall – it has over 40 tools in its suite so can at least justify its asking price and it’s still significantly less expensive than Clickfunnels.

But I just didn’t like the way it worked (I found it very counter-intuitive) and they kept changing their prices, even for existing customers.

Plus I had no use for the most of the additional tools beyond the page/funnel building and list building tools.

So I dropped my subscription with them too and went searching again for another Clickfunnels alternative.

That’s when I found Systeme.

It offers a free-forever account which neither Clickfunnels nor Builderall do (they only offer time-limited trials).

With Systeme’s free account you can create up to 3 sales funnels, 1 blog, 1 community, 1 course, collect up to 2,000 email subscribers and send an unlimited number of emails.

To test Systeme out, I created a free course about how to use ChatGPT using only the features available in the free account – you can see that course here.

Systeme of course also offers a number of paid plans starting at $27/mth (you can save 30% on all plans if you pay yearly).

Their most expensive plan is $97/mth (two-thirds the cost of a Clickfunnels 2.0 Basic Plan) and offers unlimited everything.

Neither Builderall not Clickfunnels offer that for their respective most expensive plans.

Systeme is the perfect solution for entrepreneurs just starting out or those who simply like to get great value for their money.

If you’re an affiliate marketer, Systeme offers a 60% commission (recently raised from 50%) on membership sales and those are recurring sales, month after month or year after year.

Systeme Affiliate Program

They pay 50% commissions on sales of other products such as courses.

And you don’t have to be a Systeme customer to become an affiliate … and becoming an affiliate is free.

I really can’t recommend it highly enough.

Compare that to Clickfunnels piddling 20% for non-subscribers … and compare it to the 40% commissions they pay to paying subscribers.

Builderall’s affiliate program is better – they pay 30% commissions on your direct referrals and 30% commissions on 2nd-tier referrals but they prefer you to be a paying customer – remaining a free affiliate can be difficult.

Builderall Affilliate Program

Here’s What I Originally Wrote About Clickfunnels Back in 2019…

You’ll see me mention a product called Clickfunnels elsewhere on this site.

This is a tool that every online business owner could use.

It makes the process of creating your on sales funnels easy.

It can also build websites and membership sites.

If you’re looking for an all-in-one marketing solution for your business, this is it.

Clickfunnels also has a decent affiliate program as you can see here:

Clickfunnels Affiliate Program Benefits

It’s free to sign up as an affiliate and affiliates can promote a number of products from free books and webinars to Clickfunnels itself. You get a 20%+ commission on anything sold through your link, including on any upsells.

Note that you can only earn the higher 30% or 40% commissions if you’re a paying customer of Clickfunnels.

The obvious best way to sell Clickfunnels is to to build a “make money online” funnel to promote it!

Rather than reinventing the wheel here, you can clone sales funnels that are made available by other Clickfunnels subscribers.

The caveat is that you will need to have your own Clickfunnels subscription to use such funnels as they are built in Clickfunnels.

But you can try everything out free for 14 days and decide where to go from there.

Free Training Resources

There’s a also various free affiliate marketing training courses here set you on the path to success:

I talk about why I chose to promote Clickfunnels myself in this blog post in order to generate an ongoing passive income.

Here’s a free book all about sales funnels from Russell Brunson, who’s the guy behind Clickfunnels.

There’s not much he doesn’t know about marketing.

He’s estimated to earn $100 million per year from his various enterprises with Clickfunnels earning a big chunk of that.

Funnel Hacker's Cookbook

He has 3 other free book offers (just pay shipping) – DotCom Secrets, Expert Secrets and the latest Traffic Secrets that are very much worth reading.

There’s a lot more information about the book and what it covers in this detailed blog post.

Conclusion

The RPM System is a free business in a box.

It fits the bill of being a proven system that you can just plug into and it’s capable of providing a consistent, sustainable way of earning income online now and into the future.

But it is not a push-button solution to making money online.

You still have to do the work in promoting your own pages.

You will have to pay advertising costs to drive the right kind of traffic if you don’t want to rely solely on organic traffic.

So, if you’re wondering “How Can I Make Money Online?“, these are the ways.

They combine the best of all worlds in combining affiliate marketing with list building and email marketing.

All you need to be able to do is send targeted traffic to the optin/squeeze pages you’re provided with.

  1. Wow CB Passive Income is at version 5.0 already! I used to try it out on it’s early stages during it’s first release and it was terrible and clunky but I’ve been hearing good things about the later versions too so I think it’s definitely time for me to try it out. Is it still a one-time purchase or is it a membership now?

    • I’ve found most things are a bit clunky in their first releases, Riaz. The owners of the bad products cut and run with their profits whereas those who truly believe in their products continually refine them so that they become great products. They also stick around for years and build good, solid reputations, like Wealthy Affiliate for example. 

      CB Passive Income 5.0 falls into that category now as Patric Chan has been fine tuning the system over the last several years. And with each new release, he’s added new features into the system. He’s also kept the product current in terms of technology and marketing strategies. 

      There are currently 2 payment options: 1) a single $497 payment that gives Lifetime access. There’s an additional bonus with this option – the ability to export your leads to your own autoresponder. I’m not sure but I think this is a launch week offer only. 2) $47 per month ongoing. Very affordable, even for those on smaller budgets.

      I wouldn’t describe it as a membership site, more that you’re buying a license to use a complete business (like buying a franchise). All you have to do is drive traffic to your squeeze pages (like this one provided by the system).

      It’s a really easy way for a newbie to get started with affiliate and email marketing. And it’s another potential income stream for more experienced marketers. 

  2. Building a list is something I have put off for some time, I have heard the benefits and the importance of having one but never got round to doing it. I have a site that would be perfect for one as well, thanks for sharing this informative article I’ll have to build one after reading this.

    I’ll check out that email list guide you have at the bottom as it seems to contains plenty of value

    Cheers,

    Josh

    • I was in the same boat as you, Josh. I didn’t build a list for years because it just seemed like too much hard work. And I didn’t understand the benefit of owning one. 

      Most affiliate marketers skip this side of their online business. But by doing so, they miss out on connecting with their audience and getting repeat customers. 

      As an affiliate marketer, I’ve built well over 100 sites in my “career” and seen the ups and downs of website assets. Changes in Google (in particular) torpedoed formerly successful sites. I’ve had issues with facebook too. 

      I don’t want my business or income to be dependent on their whims. Having an email list gives you a business asset that’s independent of those companies. Owning just websites makes you dependent on Google certainly.

      Having been burned by Google in the past, I don’t want to go through a repeat performance. And, while there is some extra overhead in setting up and running an email list, it’s well worth it for the added security it gives to your online business. 

  3. How can I make money online with sales funnel  and email marketing. This is really a good article – you really get a Basics on how to get into the affiliate marketing industry. If a person really wants to learn how to make money online and create a sales funnel and do email marketing this is the article for them. I really like the presentation and how everything is aligned in this article to where if a person has any need or want to make money online. You have the information there and available for them to just kick on.

    Thank you for this informative article I really appreciate it.

    • Hi Quinn, I’m only getting into sales funnels myself. Up till now I’ve been concentrating on building out my email follow-up series, finding quality products to promote through it and then creating squeeze pages to collect subscribers. 

      I really only understood the power of sales funnels when I watched this video. Building them takes time and they’re certainly a great addition for anyone running an ecommerce business – like a Shopify store. 

      But you can also get free funnels to promote products that don’t require additional support systems. This free funnel is an example of that. 

      Thanks for the feedback. It’s always gratifying to hear that people find my posts useful.

  4. Thanks for this great post! I just started my website not that long ago, and I’ve been reading about all the different ways to build traffic to my site. I’m still pretty new and have a lot on my plate right now, but creating an email list is definitely on my to do list. Just trying not to bite off more than I can chew at the moment, but this is something I need to keep an eye on until I’m there.

    • Thanks for taking the time to comment, Bobby. As much as I hate to admit it, I’ve now come to the conclusion that the fastest way to drive traffic to a site is by buying it. Otherwise, it takes a long time, possibly up to a year, before your site really starts to get a foothold and can start pulling in traffic on its own from the search engines. This is the service I use for boosting my sites and pages

      It took me a long time to get into list building. There was so much to learn about affiliate marketing that I didn’t have any more room in my brain for yet another skill! 🙂

      List building is an ongoing process as you’ll always have unsubscribes. So you need to keep driving traffic to cover those losses and build your list even more. I’ll be publishing a post soon that shows what traffic sources have worked for me and which ones haven’t.

      The first goal should be to make as much money as you spend on advertising/buying traffic. That way, you won’t be out of pocket on ad spends. 

  5. Hi Gary,

    There is a lot of good information here in your post. I desperately need to start capturing emails and building a list. I feel overwhelmed sometimes with so much information and so many things to do.

    I have bookmarked this page to come back to read more about sales funnels.

    Gary you said you are just getting into sales funnels. Are you using CB Passive Income?

    All the best,
    V. Pearl

    • Hi Vanna, I know that feeling of suffering from information overload all too well. If you ever have any questions, you can always ask me.

      Yes, I am using CB Passive Income (a review is in the works). The system provides several different lead magnets from books to webinars to software. This is email marketing at its simplest as you only need to promote the lead magnets/squeeze pages that you’re given. All the back-end email marketing is handled for you.

      The trick is in getting quality targeted traffic to your offers. 🙂

  6. This is highly inspiring and i give you kudos for putting up this lovely article.

    Sales funnels and email marketing are dope; They are one of the quickest ways to earn online. this is a must for affiliate marketers to hold on to if they really want to step up their game in affiliate world.

    Thanks for sharing; the post is well appreciated 

    • Hi Abioye, as an affiliate marketer I’m really starting to like and appreciate the sales funnel strategy! 🙂 

  7. How i can make money online. Wow! this is really good article that is filled with the basics way of making money about affiliated marketing. I have always know that there is no shortcut to success except by being informed and you being smart and hard working? I just learn about this sales funnel and email marketing in  this articles which is very very impressing.

    i really love it.Thank you for this information. quite enlightening

    • Thanks, Kehinde. You’re right, there really is no shortcut to success. Any worthwhile business – online or offline – is going to require focus, commitment and time. At least with online businesses, there are no overheads like you get with offline businesses! 🙂

  8. What a comprehensive and down to earth article on making money online, I was glued to my screen in order to absorb the information.I have come to realise that now matter what you know, you can’t be successful in online business except some powerful tools are purchased or subscribe to.CB passive income looks very interesting, both affiliate marketing and e-mail list building are things that I wish to venture into very soon. I launched my website today, I will be coming around to learn more from you.

    • Hi Autofreak and thanks for stopping by. Congrats on getting your own website launched! Thanks for you comments. Once you get your “aha” moment – your epiphany – on how everything in affiliate marketing hangs together and reinforces each other, there’s no going back!

  9. Gary my head is spinning…from all the great information you’ve shared AND over the possibilities you make clear in the ways my online business can grow. I’m relatively new to building an online presence, and there’s so very much to learn, and I feel rather lost sometimes. So I’m quite grateful for people like you who share their many years of experience and help “newbies” like me 1) understand what the real (non-scam) opportunities are and 2) how to leverage free or low-cost systems to help us build our business to the point we can afford to level up. I’m truly amazed how much insight you offer your readers in just this single article! Thank you for your insights.

    • Thanks for the positive feedback, Cheri. You’re right about there being a lot to learn. Back when I started, social media wasn’t a thing whereas today there are so many social media options to consider using. The best bit of advice I can give any newbie is to focus on whatever course you’re currently following until you master it. Yes, it will take time and the saying “no pain, no gain” really does apply! 🙂

      I’m actually getting fed up with the the way products are marketed in the make money online niche. There’s only a handful of tools, courses and resources I actually use and recommend. I’ve come across some really bad products in my time (and reviewed them). And some good products that turn out to have a short shelf-life because they’re soon replaced by better tools or the developers have simply moved on to their next project. 

      Then there are the products that are good at enticing you to buy them and then you’re hit with an endless stream of upsells, downsells and one-time offers. One product I bought to review (it was $27) had 12 products in it’s immediate sales funnel. I bought them all to see what they were like and to see how their sales funnel was constructed. By the end of the funnel, and this was even before I started receiving any emails from the funnel, I’d spent about $750. 

      When I looked at what I’d got for that money, it was poorly produced, rehashed crap. It took 2 months to get a refund. It’s that type of marketing I’m really starting to detest. Newbies don’t have the experience yet of being able to spot the gems amongst all the crap. So it can be a minefield for them.I’ll help out there in any way I can!

  10. I have not started any sales funnel yet and I will say I am making plans towards that but I really don’t think I doing good enough on that so that why I do appreciate this blog for bringing back to my sense . I love  the video about time I seem to have a lot of it but I am not using it very well  I need to improve on that and get my funnel up and running.

    • Don’t try to do everything at once, Charles39. That’s pretty much a recipe for disaster. My mentor, Zach Crawford, recommends spending 20% of your time learning and the other 80% in taking action. He recommends trying to improve what you’re doing by just 1% each day so things don’t become overwhelming.

      One thing I’ve done recently is to only read emails from my current mentor (Zach). What can happen if you follow more than one or two mentors is that you start to get conflicting information, or one mentor tells you you have to do Facebook ads, while another says you must make videos for YouTube, and so on. It gets confusing, overwhelming and you’re left wondering what you really should be putting your time into. 

      When you focus on following one mentor, sticking to once course and cutting out all the digital noise, you’ll be amazed at how much you can get done in the time you do have. 

  11. Hi Gary,

    Thanks for writing a helpful information about Sales funnel and Email marketing. Now I know the importance of Email list building and passive online earning technique. I am going to bookmark your site in my favorite section so that I can do more research on your other articles. I believe many people will find many secret resources for establishing an online business. 

    • Glad you found the post useful, Mzakapon. An email list should be the core of any online business. A sales funnel simply leverages the email list to better effect. And blogging, making videos, posting on social media, etc. is used to direct people into the sales funnel. It’s actually a pretty simple concept, especially when you get your “aha!” moment. 🙂 It’s actually putting things together that’s the hard part (not as hard now because of the likes of CB Passive Income Bonus Package and Free Clickfunnels Trial). 

  12. Dear Gary,

    Thanks for the article I enjoyed it. I must say I found your post highly uplifting and educational.

    When I read the posts of successful people and experts on making money online. they always talk about building our email list and the funnel. Money is in the list and funnel.

    I can tell you I have taken some great insights from this post.

    The video you embedded is awesome and to be honest I watched it twice and also taken notes from it. Thanks a lot for sharing.

    Read the book Dotcom Secrets of Russell Brunson which is awesome and learned about funnels.

    Very informative post!

    Much Success!

    • Thanks for letting me know you found the article useful, Paul. 

      There’s a couple of other books I highly recommend in addition to Dotcom Secrets:

      Expert Secrets – also from Russell Brunson and teaches you the art of copywriting and how to engage your audience with stories.
      Straight-Line Leadership – really educational book that puts you in the right mindset for success both personally and professionally.

  13. Thanks a lot for your post. It has many ideas for me to look into.  I have been meaning to get started in a meaningful way on my list.  On the basis of the link to the free course from Leadpages, I have downloaded their free course and will take it from there.Best regards,Joe

    • Hi Joe, Aweber also recently released its own free email course. While these free courses are always going to be skewed to their platforms, there’s still a lot of insights, strategies and techniques to learn from them.
