Top Ten Ways To Make Money Online
If you would have asked me 8 years ago the average guy on the street could make millions of dollars online I would have told you to get lost. Today, though, there are so many ways to make money online and countless millionaires who turned a great idea into a HUGE profit and used the power of the internet to promote their business online. Then you even have those smart ones that turned these ideas into systems (wink, wink).
Speaking of internet millionaires we are just extracting cash out of the online market which anyone can do with the right marketing system in place. One of my mentors (Lawrence Tam) is an internet millionaire well known and has a phenomenal marketing system in place.
While it’s unlikely you will earn as much as Bill Gates and have enough to buy a small island you can easily earn 5 figures a month and make a comfortable living online. Much of the media would have you believe though that only very few make that are lucky make it online. However, the reality is there are tens of thousands of people making a living online. I am going to show you top ten ways to make money online.
Top Ten Ways To Make Money Online
1. Selling Stock Photography Online
So everyone knows the internet is growing and with people now starting to know blogging is one of the top ways of earning money online the need for stock photography is exploding. When articles are written the need for these photos grows exponentially so stock photos is huge way to get in on some of these income online.
If photography is a profession or even just a hobby for you then this should be a consideration and you can earn cash for selling stock images.
2. Tweet For Sponsors
SponsoredTweets.com is an online platform that allows you to make money on Twitter. How so? Have a good sized followers list then how you make money is by charging sponsors for communicating the advertising message to your followers. Cool thing is that you get to set your price for every tweet and can choose what category and keywords that are what you message out. Once you have put this bid out then you wait for the sponsor to take the bid and boom you have just been hired and paid.
3. Blog for Ad Revenues
If, however, you are already blogging then you already know you must create the 3 C’s so you can start to monetize and have a good following. Ad networks like Ad-sense actually pay pretty big money and your payment well it gets dropped into your account every time someone clicks on the ad that is on your page.
4. Selling Affiliate Stuff Online
This by far is number one in my book because the commissions from this model are huge easily make $100-$5,000 or more in one night. Empower Network is by far one of the most lucrative products I have seen online thus far but Amazon has a decent affiliate program but you have to sell a ton of volume to make a decent living. In order to make $5k with Amazon you have to sell to a couple hundred customers and in comparison to Empower with one full sale you could hit $5k easily.
5. Publish an e Book
This one is very lucrative and the only drawback is the time needed to be put in on the front end of researching, writing, editing and developing covers and all that goes with it. However that is the extent of getting an eBook going because you do not even need a site in order to self publish the book on Amazon or something like Barnes & Nobles.
Also, just to give you some insight to how large this market is there were 8 million eBooks sold in 2013.
6. Sell Your Time As A Virtual Assistant
I can probably safely say all businesses would love to hire a full time assistant but in most cases the business just simply cannot afford to hire one. However, thanks to the power of the internet and tele-commuting the cost of hiring a full time assistant just got leverage to be able to hire one for a few hours a day or week.
Virtual assistants typically help with small daily tasks business handle like booking airfare, interacting with clients or just all the extra small tasks in a day. So if you want to work from home and make a little extra cash virtual assistants earn about $20 per hour.
7. Sell Your Skills
We all have strengths and of those strengths we can actually sell that skill to others that need it for their company. Now with the internet with such sites like 99Designs, Freelancer and iWriter you can sign up and sell those skills. I have hired several people to handle jobs like coding of some back-end processes or databases, translators to help me close deals in Mexico or even writers to help with some writing pieces that we needed help with. This is a great way to boost your free time in order to generate some free cash flow.
8. eBay Selling
eBay was one of the first methods I used to generate cash back in 2006 and with little time and effort you can make some pretty big money with the right product and setup. You can buy products at wholesale and mark them up in order to retail the product and I have met some that do this solely full time.
9. Mobile App Tester
I have not seen this grow as much as projected but when an app is developed most people want to perform a market test before launching the product. That is where you can again leverage the power of the internet and perform some testing of iPhone apps to see if there are any bugs and then you are rewarded for your time and efforts.
One site to check out is uTest in order to get some tests under your belt and once you have some you build a reputation of testing apps and this builds credibility which as a result builds your propensity to get more and I mean more lucrative app testing jobs.
10. T-Shirts Designing
Last one, if you have some creativity and you feel you are more left brained than others you may have an opportunity to cash in on that creativity. There are sites where you can design some shirt designs and if catchy can actually be sold to sites like CafePress. Once you get a feel for it and if you want to hit more mainstream you could design and hit up distributors like threadless.com or designbyhumans.com and if chosen your shirt desing will be released to the masses.
Most people get intimidated with online but as long as you realize that online is really just like the real world because the same opportunities that are in the real world in your local area they are all over online no boundaries. That is why I love it because I can reach out and get help or help from all over the world.
