For quite a lot of people, the very opportunity to earn money
online would be something straight out of their dreams. After
all, who wouldn’t want to be independent of a particular
employer, while spending time with their family and earning
money at the same time? All it needs is a brainwave, a
website that is in vogue in the market. A single hit and one
would be soaring in millions from the very place they are
sitting right now. But, it isn’t that easy or everyone would be
millionaires at this very moment. To earn money online, one
needs to be incredibly tech-savvy and well-acquainted with
everything that was happening around them.
Although the process can be quite gritty, you need to buckle
down and stick with it as it develops. It isn’t going to happen
overnight in most cases- you will need to be by your website
even when there are slim pickings. But remember, the
algorithm for revenue generation isn’t all that difficult once
you have settled into place. All it needs is a little time,
patience, and maybe a bit of luck.
In the event that you are still looking for ways to make money
online and haven’t come across any useful information, here
are 12 ways that will teach you how to make online.
Google Adsense
In your day to day life, you must have come across at least
one website which could be displaying anything. Did you find
ads there? Well, that is Google Adsense and it serves a very
important purpose. For, not only does the profit start to grow
when your business is generating incredible amounts of
revenue, but it is also extremely easy to set it up on a fledgling
website. Quite possibly the coolest thing about Google
Adsense is the amount of work it is needed by the user to
access it. All you need is a website or a blog. If you have one,
you can simply sign up for a free Google Adsense account.
Now, with the code that Google provides you, you can paste it
on your blog. Google will take care of the rest- checking in the
number of visits, the number of times your blogs have been
chanced upon, and the traffic is being generated on the blog.
You don’t even have to maintain it, or will be charged for its
You can make anywhere from $10 to $5000 a month, even
more depending on the traffic to your page. And let us tell you
that there is a different form of jubilation when you find out
that you have been earning $5000 a month while on the
second month of your blogging journey. It will also show you
other ways to monetize your blog, so there’s that.
Affiliate Marketing
In the event that you are mulling between switching up a blog
or opening up a website, you can also look up other options,
including affiliate marketing. In this service, you simply attach
or affiliate yourself with other famous brands or companies,
and partner it in the confines of your blog or website. The way
this works is pretty simple: you will mention a particular
service or product on your website or blog, and then link it to
the unique affiliation code that will be provided to you the
time you sign up for the program. Every time someone buys
the product or avails the service from your blog, you will earn
The way to simplify this is to focus on what your website or
blog is all about and then searching for brands or companies
that fit the bill. This will ensure that people don’t think of your
entire website simply as a place for product placement. For
example, if your website is all about providing financial
solutions, you can link up to any affiliate programs provided by
credit card companies or the like. You also have the option of
signing up with umbrella affiliate programs, that have a lot of
affiliations underneath. This will provide you with the choice of
linking up with different brands or affiliations as the days go
The best way to learn about Affiliate Marketing would be to
Michelle Gardner’s website called Making Sense of Sense.
With a monthly earning of $100,000 and the bulk of it coming
from Affiliate Marketing, she is the go-to person for anything
Affiliate Marketing. In fact, her expertise has led her to launch
a course called Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing.
The trick is to know what the audience wants and building up
your affiliations on that angle.
Yet another way to earn money on the internet is through
consulting. All you need to be is an expert in the field of your
choice and have the capability enough to guide people on their
issues. And you would find a lot of people willing to pay you
for availing your services, be it professional or personal. While
you may consider yourself to not be smart enough to be
picked up by major companies, you have absolutely no idea
the sort of payment these companies lease in search of
genuine expertise.
The College Investor’s Robert Farrington is a perfect example
of this. After a few years of blogging and consulting on the
side of many obscure fields, he was finally approached by a
few brands that wanted his consultation on digital marketing
and social media placements.
Even though Robert didn’t take up more projects than 4 to 6 a
year, he managed it well around his schedule and other duties.
Probably the thing that worked in his favor was that he fixed
his rate at $100/hour, and before you forget this was just the
money people were paying him for his ideas on how to
manage a social media profile to increase their coverage.
If you think you are up for some good old consulting and don’t
know where to go, Clarity.fm is a perfect place for you. They
allow you to create an account for free, and once you are
locked in, they would take it upon themselves to help clients
find and avail your services.
Online Courses
If you think you have the expertise for any subject that you can
also teach to people, then you should definitely try out for
online courses which you can then market. These days, one
can find an online course for any subject they can think of- be
it culinary arts, marketing, or the law. If you believe you have it
in you to teach something to people, market it.
Easy Course Creation’s Joseph Michael is the one-stop guy
for online courses and their initiations. Michael has been
offering several courses for quite some time now- one that
involves ‘Scrivener’, a software for writing. And since his foray
into this field, he has been earning six figures almost annually
simply by helping people attain the courses that are necessary
for them to succeed in whichever way they dream of.
Teachable.com is one platform which can help one set up their
own online course. With the platform, you will be able to
upload all the teaching material, whilst also making it easier to
schedule classes and accept the revenue that is generated.
If you are looking for yet another way to earn money on the
internet, Podcasting can be your ticket. Many bloggers have a
podcast that runs along the length of their blog, and that is
one platform that should and is used specifically to attract
advertisers and customers.
In the beginning, it might get pretty complicated for you to
think about monetizing your podcast along with your blog. But
soon you would see that there are advertisers and sponsors
strewn across the board who would be willing to pay you big
bucks if you added something about them in any podcast for a
limited number of days. Why do you think most Youtubers
mention something very specific about a guitar company when
they are talking about Shawn Mendes? Well, it is because they
are paid to do so.
You might earn a little bit of money in the beginning, but don’t
get complacent. A lot of bloggers and podcasters earn a lot
more because they never gave up. Take John Lee Dumas of
the Entrepreneur On Fire podcast. According to his latest
income report, he clocked around $400,000 in March of 2018.
Podcasting is an art, and to crack it you need to know a few
things. Firstly, you need to establish your place- find a niche
that fits in perfectly for you. Then, connect with your audience-
show them why they need this podcast and what they can
learn from it. And finally, work out ways to monetize it. While it
is pretty tough balancing the logistics, performances, and the
script- it is also very interesting and profitable.
Book Sales
In the days long gone, publishing was mostly based on print
and it did take quite a long time for an author to get his book
published, marketed, and his revenue generated. But in
today’s world, you can do all that in a week, or less. In fact,
the entire process can be done online, without having to ever
meet up with a publisher for anything. Create Space is one
such website that has the option for people to upload their
books which are then directly taken to a publisher without a
third party involved. And you can also make sure that your
book gets sold on Amazon and other such online markets.
Joseph Hogue is one such blogger who has a blog called My
Work From Home Money and a book publishing business. Not
only has he written quite a few books, but he has also
published them online to increase his income. By his own
record, he sells around 700 books per month to earn a revenue
of $1857 every month, which is not at all bad considering this
isn’t his main source of income.
If you have a book idea, pen it down before someone does. If
you are sure people would want to buy it then online publishing
would be the way to go- for the cost of publishing is minimal
and you are assured publication.
Lead Sales
There are quite a few ways to make money online, and one of
them is by accumulating leads. In order to efficiently initiate
and conclude a lead sales, there are a few steps that you
need to follow. The first one being the establishment of a
website. Then you need to make sure there is enough traffic
moving towards that website. And most importantly, you need
to be absolutely sure that the leads you are accumulating are
necessary enough for someone to fork up money.
You have an example before you which will show you the way-
there is a website called Life Insurance by Jeff, which helps in
leading people to websites that actually provide conclusive
information on questions related to life insurance. While
someone might have opened up the website simply to
purchase and sell life insurance to people visiting the website,
that can get way tricky as the days go by. It would be much
easier to sell the leads that one has accumulated over time.
To put it simply, there are purchasers who would be willing to
pay up large sums to gather information on someone they can
actually help out. So, it is completely a win-win for everyone,
where the client gets the help, the purchasers get the
information, and the one selling the leads earns his keep.
Yet again, there are quite a lot of different fields where leads
can be sold. All it needs is good, thorough research, the ability
to create a niche for oneself, and an audience. And then
check up on your finances to see how much you have earned.
Freelance Writing
Freelance writing is the newest thing in the market, and it is
extremely lucrative if you know how to write and have a
creative mind for it. Remember, it is very easy to market
yourself if you are confident in your abilities.
There are a few freelance writers like Holly Johnson who earn
big bucks writing for different websites. In fact, she earns
close to $200,000 every single year, which is on top of the
amount she actually makes with her own blog.
When you keep asking yourself how to make money online,
sometimes you may have to simply look at your strengths. If
your strength lies in writing, use that up and make something
out of it. Remember, you can’t earn a lot in the beginning so
don’t quit your full-time job for this. First, let your reputation
precede you- for that is when different companies would be
looking to hire you. And when you can double the amount you
earn with a full-time job, then you can quit it.
All you have to do is build up a reputation and deliver on time
every single time. People will only hire you if you are the best,
which is why you need to give your all every single time you
decide to write. Also, make connections with people, for they
will be able to give you higher-paying opportunities. For
starters, visit Upwork.com
Sponsored Posts
This is something that you might have all come across while
browsing through Instagram or other social media sites. Here,
the trick is simple- you need to have a huge following, or your
website needs to have quite a significant amount of traffic.
This would enable you to get in touch with brands who would
ask you to promote their stuff- something that would lead to
you earning every time someone buys the stuff.
Remember, companies simply want you to upload a link of
their company on your wall for you to promote them. For this,
you can charge high, but you need to make sure that your
social media profile is spotlessly clean, and you have quite a
significant number of followers. A single blemish and this way
of making money might go down the drain.
If you think the payment is small, let me tell you that there are
companies who would pay you $20,000 for each sponsored
post. Cristiano Ronaldo gets close to a million every time he
sponsors a post. But then again he has close to 200 million
Instagram followers. The math is simple- the bigger following
you have, the more you make.
It can either be a website, or a social media following-
whichever suits you best.
Webinars are seminars on the internet where you can explain
your product to a varied clientele in the hopes that someone
picks up on it. It is usually free of cost, and live, so in the end,
you pitch your product and provide your best case for it.
Grant Baldwin is a professional speaker who markets his online
courses on Public Speaking through webinars. While he does
offer quite a few tips in the webinars themselves, the real
gems are hidden away in the main course which he then
pitches. And more often than not, he ends up successful.
It doesn’t matter what you are selling, as long as you can
attract people to it. Just set up a webinar through Facebook
and attract a clientele. You would find it easy enough to talk
about your services from thereon.
Most of the self-made millionaire youngsters that you hear of
have come through the ranks of Youtube. This website allows
you to earn money if you have a large enough number of
subscribers. And trust me, you can find close to any subject
under the Sun on Youtube- be it sitting in the dark for two
hours, or Quantum Physics interspersed with String Theory- it
has it all.
Back in 2017, Youtubers bought in combined earnings of $127
million dollars, which involved a gaming Youtuber bringing in
$17 million himself- just for people to sit and watch as he
played games on his computer.
While not everyone earns that much, you can still make
enough cash to carry it as pocket money. All you need to do is
set up Youtube’s ad technology, or bring up any sponsored
product on your channel. And that’s all that’s needed.
Build An Online Community
Building an online community can be a good way to make
money online, but the logistics involved in it are completely
different. There are a lot of different ways to go about it-
where you can create an online community with a blog that
will help you earn money. Or, you could also build a
community that charges a fee for membership. The trend is to
set up a Facebook group where you would be able to use your
influence to sell products.
The best reason to bring about an online community is if you
know a bunch of people who have shared interests, and who
can link you to a bunch of other people. Then, the sense of a
community can really help a business develop, while also
being the perfect way to earn money online.
‘How to make online?’ can’t really be a question in today’s age
and time. With internet at our fingertips and a whole host of
websites to choose from, it all needs interest and a passion to
work things out. If you are willing to put in the time, and
energy, then things will definitely look up for you and you
would be able to earn money online.
