How to Make Money Online
1. Join a Freelance website- eg. Upwork, Guru, Fiverr
If you want to know how to make money online without paying anything, the work from home industry is a really great place to start. The work from home industry is booming right now so it's really the best time to get in on the action. You can offer your range of skills and talents to clients online who are willing to pay you top dollar for your expertise and you ca get started for free.
2. Build an App
Apps are taking over the world. If you have an idea that you think will add value to the online space, think about creating an app for it. If you do not have the skills to do it on your own, you can always outsource this online (Upwork, etc.) or in your local area.
3. Get into E-commerce/Drop-shipping
Create an online store and sell goods for a profit. E-commerce/dropshipping has become increasingly popular over the last couple of years. If you have a few bucks in savings and you are in search of investment ideas an online store might be right for you. You can use Shopify to get started.
E-commerce- You would simply buy goods at wholesale prices, store them and then resell them online.
Drop-shipping- This is still classified as an e-commerce business, however you are not responsible for the storing of the goods. Whenever someone purchases an item from your storefront, you would then have to purchase the item directly from a third party manufacturer or distributor who would then ship directly to the customer as per agreement.
5. Become a Social Media Influencer
If you are passionate about Social Media, then let it work for you. Build your online following and get started as a Micro-Influencer with roughly 500-1000 followers. You can earn an income from partnerships and sponsorships etc with major companies online.
6. Create a blog
If you're passionate about writing, consider creating your own blog. You could then get paid to advertise on behalf of other companies using Google Adsense and also through Affiliate Marketing.
7. Create a Youtube channel
Share your passion, lifestyle and knowledge through your Youtube channel and get paid. Youtube is definitely becoming one of the best ways to make money from home. You can run ads on your channel using Google Adsense or you can get paid through sponsorships. (Remember that you will need to build your subscribers list)
8. Write e-books
Turn that hobby into a money-making machine! Write e-books and sell them on Amazon or other third party platforms. Don't worry if you're not the best writer! You can always outsource this task and reap the benefits.
The aforementioned ways are proven methods of creating an additional stream of income online (beware-they are not quick fixes). Remember guys, the world is changing and traditional old ways of operating will eventually become obsolete. You can still take on any one of these money makers and operate your 9-5 job however. Ultimately, it depends on whether or not you desire more. Remember, doing the same thing every day, expecting a different result, is insanity (Albert Einstein).
