There are literally dozens of ways to make money online but I limited this list to five. So how do you make money online anyway? Well there are countless options to choose from and each could honestly be there own video so let’s just stick to the basics. You make money online by giving someone something of value. This can be done either by selling products (whether they’re your own or someone else’s), providing value to the business through taking surveys or downloading apps that let companies collect data on things like your shopping habits or by doing freelance work for others. And again, there are many ways to do each of these.
So with that out of the way, let’s get into the list. One way to make money online is to start a blog. A blog is a very versatile option to choose because not only can you make a little passive income through Google Adsense but you can use your blog to direct your traffic to other things that will make you money. Most bloggers do this through affiliate marketing by putting a link in their posts to certain related products or services that their readers will be interested in.
Another way to make money online is to become an affiliate marketer. This is something that anyone who creates content on the internet should be doing and it’s very easy to set up.
And the best part of this strategy is that it is about as close to passive income as you can get. Say you do a video review on YouTube for Vitamix and sign up for their affiliate program. You get paid 15% of the price of every sale you drive to the site through your link. And as long as your video stays up on Youtube it’ll keep getting views and people will keep clicking on your link and you’ll keep getting paid long after your work is done.
If Vitamix isn’t your thing Amazon has a great affiliate program that offers you anywhere from a 4-10% cut of the sales you drive to the site, and many other places have affiliate marketing programs such as clickbank.com. and JVZoo. com. Most products nowadays have some sort of affiliate program so if you’re writing a review for your blog or doing a video review on youtube be sure to google the product to see if it has an affiliate program.
A third way to make money online is to sign up for a freelance website like Fiverr or UpWork and start doing small jobs for other people on the internet. This isn’t exactly passive but if you’re rated highly for what you do on the site you could turn this into a nice side job. If you’re really good you can actually turn this into a full-time gig.
Forbes had a great article on 3 people that earn 6 figures a year on Fiverr.
A fourth way to make money online is to sell ebooks on the Kindle Store. If writing is your talent than this is a great opportunity for you to look into. And what’s great is that you can actually start a kindle business with little to no money if you’re willing to write and market the books yourself. If you aren’t then you can use ghostwriters for the manuscript and book cover designers on Fiverr to help you market it. If this is something you want to pursue though take the Kindle Money Mastery Class from Stefan Pylarimos. It walks you through the entire process step-by-step.
Just google the letter K Money Mastery and you’ll find the class.
A fifth way to make money online is to sell stock images, music, and videos. People who are making videos on Youtube or blogging, or creating a podcast, or really creating just about any kind of content online is always in need of more stock items and they’re willing to pay you to give them the rights to use them. There are many sites that allow you to sell your stock items Shutterstock is a great one for photos, audio blocks are great for selling music or sound effects, and video blocks will allow you to sell your stock video footage.
