Top 10 Must Read Books in 2020 About How To Make Money Online

Earning money has always been associated with traditional 'offline' ways found in the real world. Now, as the world is changing, with the Internet taking over a large part of our lives, more people are looking for ways to earn money online and reach the financial freedom.

Here are my top 10 book recommendations for you to read in 2020 about how to make money online and how to stay away from "Get rich quick" scams.

#1: The 4 Hour Workweek

by Timothy Ferriss

Ask yourself the question: What do you want from life?

Tim Ferriss’ The 4 Hour Work Week is a cultural hit. It’s sold more than 2.1 million copies. It’s been translated into 35 languages and spent more than four years on the New York Times bestseller list.

The key principle used in Ferriss’s methods is the Pareto or 80/20 rule: 80% of your productivity comes from 20% of your time. Tim’s insights about email, outsourcing, and business use take it to a new extreme.

The genius of Ferriss’s book is that it resonates with a suspicion nearly everyone harbors deep down: that it doesn’t actually have to be like this.


#2 DotCom Secrets

by Russell Brunson

Founder of Click Funnels, Russell Brunson, shares the secrets that he’s learned about driving online sales from helping thousands of entrepreneurs sell millions of dollars of products, and services.

Dotcom Secrets contains a step-by-step actionable guide for anyone who is new in the online marketing space to get a complete understanding of how online marketing works.

If you are currently struggling with getting traffic to your website, or converting that traffic, you may think you’ve got a traffic or conversion problem. In Russell Brunson's experience, low traffic and weak conversion numbers are just symptoms of a much greater problem, a problem that’s a little harder to see, but a lot easier to fix. DotComSecrets will give you the marketing funnels and the sales scripts you need to be able to unlock new leads into your business.


#3 The $100 Startup

by Chris Guillebeau

Chris is on the verge of completing a tour of every country on earth and yet he’s never had a "real job" or earned a regular paycheck. Rather, he has a special genius for turning ideas into income, and he uses what he earns both to support his life of adventure and to give back.

The $100 Startup is Guillebeau’s “how-to” bible for anyone with high aspirations, shallow pockets, a laptop, and a slight disdain for authority. As the title clearly suggests, Guillebeau’s thesis is that anyone can start a business with only $100.


#4 Your Move: The Underdog’s Guide to Building Your Business

#6 The E Myth Revisited

by Michael E. Gerber

The book is a fascinating insight into the experience of Gerber dealing with not only failing businesses, but the people in charge of them who are often at their wit’s end. His drive to help them and satisfaction in seeing them blossom into true business owners is infectious, leaving you enthusiastic to start your own journey after every chapter.

If your business depends on you, you don’t own a business – you have a job. And it’s the worst job in the world because you’re working for a lunatic!

Michael E. Gerber, The E Myth Revisited, p. 40

#7 Click Millionaires

#8 Get Rich Click

by Marc Ostrofsky

Marc Ostrofsky is likely best known as the domain name investor who bought Business.com for $150,000 and sold it for $7.5 million a mere four years later, earning him an entry in the Guinness Book of World Records. But he’s also founded five magazines, 12 trade shows and seven companies, selling businesses cumulatively worth over $100 million.

This book is not a get rich quick scheme. Instead, it arguably contains the most comprehensive and diverse information source available for making money on the Internet, and it’s written by one of the world’s most successful Internet entrepreneurs.

Ostrofsky shows that bandwidth helps a Web entrepreneur exploit the many inefficiencies in the bricks & mortar business world. Not only are these profitable opportunities, but they can scale worldwide and perpetually. He then cites the stories of people who have done precisely that.

Anastasi sets out step-by-step strategies, but you can also pick and choose areas that interest you, and go your own way.

    In the book, the author explains that he’s tested hundreds of different Internet opportunities and strategies over the years – most of them a complete waste of time – and he reveals the 32 proven ways he’s found for making $1,000 to $30,000 a month with just a laptop and an Internet connection.
