15 Simple Ways to Make Money Online

For most, the internet is primarily for social media (watching funny cat videos) and playing online video games. However, did you know that you can build your business and make a little money from it too?

There are so many opportunities for you to apply yourself in the vastness of the internet. If you can apply yourself in just the right way, there is a very good chance that you can make a living doing some of the things that you are currently doing or even dare I say it dreamed of doing.

In the following post, I am going to share with you 15 simple ways to make money online, you do not need to master or 15 methods, just pick one and it is enough to replace a full-time job.

Building Websites

15 Simple Ways to Make Money Online

 

Here, you can assume that the vastness of the internet is like a vast piece of land. Then if this is so then websites can be likened to tracts of real estate.

In the real physical world, the overall worth of the real estate is quite high; in fact, it is one of the most coveted items that you can have today.

Digital real estate would basically operate under the same principles, that’s why it’s called digital real estate (your collection of websites and digital products).

So when it comes to developing a website, these websites can be referred to as digital real estate. And the best thing about it is, you can build as many as you like because the land (webspace) you have available is unlimited.

How it is done?

Just like you would on your piece of physical land when you have space on the internet you are at liberty to do as you please with your website.

However, we are concerned with making money and therefore there are going to be some few limitations.

You will need to be more specific with the content that you would like to put up on your website. Let us be honest, only good content will yield good returns.

There would be no point in having your digital real estate looking like a junkyard; you will be lucky if you get any visitors and if they visit they are not going to stay long.

When you are developing your website, it would be advisable that you spend some significant amount of time in selecting a platform that would be desirable.

A platform can be described as the format in which your website will be hosted on. If you are not particularly tech-savvy, this would immediately sound like a task that is overly complicated and the thought of millions of lines of code downright off-putting.

This was the case several years ago when the platforms were a tad bit complicated; the popular platforms were HTML, Flash or CSS.

To put up your website you would need to invest a significant amount of time to code your website (a task that in itself required countless hours to master).

However, you can now breathe easy as this process has been significantly simplified thanks to Content Management Systems (CMS) like WordPress.

Simply put, CMS can be described as a platform that is user friendly that is used in the development of websites and the management of online content. It gets even better, these CMS are mostly free!

*Note – You can find your WordPress website at wordpress.com. These can be set-up in minutes!

Once you have selected an appropriate platform, you should then proceed to select a domain name that would suit you and a host.

A domain name can be described as a web address like a thisismywebsite.org. Hosting, on the other hand, refers to a service that will be able to connect your site to the internet.

Earlier we mentioned that making use of a platform like WordPress will be free, however, for your site to be hosted it may cost you a small investment of no more than $10 – 100 per month depending on the tools and space you require.

However, there is no need for you to be alarmed by this, it is not an amount that will be capable of breaking your bank; it can cost less than you spend on coffee around $3 to $5.

You still have the option of having your site hosted for free but the implication of this is that your website will not have a professional appeal.

For instance, it would be very unattractive to have a website that reads thisismywebsite.freewebsitehosting.com. Spending a little extra on the hosting will go a long way into ensuring that your brand has an attractive outlook.

*Tip – Don’t go for free hosting it’s simply not scalable or worth it.

After you have come up with an appropriate domain name and you have chosen a host for your site, you only need to tweak and adjust your site a little bit.

You will need to add some templates and the necessary layouts for your website to increase its appeal.

Think of this as the interior decoration of the digital real estate that you have built. Once you have done this, you will be ready to launch your website.

How do you make money?

Making money off your website is where the challenging bit begins. To get any revenue then you need to attract people to your site, and to do this you will be required to promote and market your site extensively.

You can do this on social media, or any other media that will be at your disposal. You are advised to even look into Search Engine Optimization (SEO) to ensure that your content is easily accessible when someone looks online for it.

The whole point of doing all this is to be able to generate adequate traffic to your site to be able to sell the products that you have to offer.

Remember – the more traffic you can generate the more likely that you be able to get the attention of companies and they will come to advertise on your website.

Google AdSense

15 Simple Ways to Make Money Online

AdSense can be said to be one of the most popular ways in which you can get some revenue online. If you are new to this then it may look like some complicated terminology involving some complicated tasks, however, with this guide, it will be very simple. Here is all you need to know:

  • This is an internet service that is owned by Google.
  • It is a free service for all publishers.
  • It is one of the major income earners for Google as a company with revenue of approximately $3.13 billion.
  • The revenue share is split between the publisher and Google on a ratio of 68:32. This means that for every dollar, 68 cents will go to the publisher while 32 cents will go to Google.
  • The variety of advertisers utilize the AdWords program to advertise their services and products on the AdSense websites. Payment is only due whenever an individual clicks on the advertisements. This is called pay per click (PPC)
  • It is a very convenient system to use
  • The calculation of the cost per every click is determined through an auction type of system.
  • It is arguably one of the most reliable platforms for advertising online today and it can generate a steady income for a publisher in comparison with other PPC systems.

How can you make money?

It has been highlighted that this is one of the easiest platforms to use in which you are entitled to receive over 68 percent of the entire revenue.

Nevertheless, there are some requirements that you need to make any kind of money on AdSense. But you need not be alarmed as they are not too hard to accomplish.

Your Website should be rich in Content

Google AdSense is best suited for a website that is rich in content. You can put all sorts of content within your websites such as images, words, and videos so long as they do not contravene the policies of AdSense.

You, should, however, ensure that your content has some text in it so that it can be easy for the web crawler to locate your content.

High Quality

Given that Google has a fiduciary responsibility to their clients given the fact that they part with hefty sums of money so that their products can be advertised, they would not be amused if their content was placed on websites that were of poor quality.

Moreover, it would serve you and your brand better if your website were to have a professional appearance as compared to a messy juvenile web page.

High Traffic

Like we had mentioned earlier, you stand to make very easy money if you make use of AdSense, nevertheless, this is only possible if your website can generate a substantial amount of traffic.

The rationale here is that advertisers will pay to place their adverts on websites where people will notice them, with low traffic then that is not possible.

As a benchmark, you need to aim for approximately 400 unique visits on any given day to consider it healthy traffic.

Appropriate Keywords

It is vital that your website has the appropriate keywords and the same goes for your content if you are to make any money with AdSense.

Appropriate keywords refer to the words that are commonly used by the advertisers when they are promoting their services and products to increase the overall number of action words. Action words are very important as they can convert a click into revenue or sale.

*Tip – Reference the website chapter above. If you have nothing to sell but a lot to talk about. Adding Google AdSense program ads to your websites is a smart option to generate an income.

Amazon Associates

Amazon is arguably the largest online market place that you can find today. Even though there are more affiliate market places in the world today than it would be feasible to count, a significant proportion of bloggers and large conglomerates are in the habit of selling their products on Amazon.

Their Affiliate offers a ridiculously enticing commission range; it can pay you up to 15 percent of the total sale amount.

However, this percentage is often very dependent on the kind of sale that you are making. Either way, this is a very good way for you to make money.

Let us assume that you are a blogger who specializes in tech gadgets such as mobile phones. You can begin by writing a detailed review of the latest laptop or phone then attach it to an Amazon Affiliate link.

At most, you will spend approximately 20 minutes of your time to find the most suitable deal, and you can then proceed to make yourself some substantial income promoting this product across your websites and social media.

How to sign up for the Amazon Affiliate Program

You will be able to easily sign up into the Amazon Affiliate Program, with only a few things that you will need to consider first such as your desired target market or the geographic location.

The implication of this is that if you desire to target an audience in the United States then you need to sign up for the Amazon U. S. Associate program.

But this does not mean that you are limited to only one geographic region; if you are keen to promote all the Amazon in all the geographical locations then you should go ahead and sign up for the affiliate programs in the different countries such as Japan, Australia, India and so on.

How to Make Money

Once you have successfully signed up to the Affiliates program then the next logical step would be to find the necessary banners, links, and widgets for your site.

The niche that you will target here will be inherently dependent on the variable that will let you select a broad range of links.

For example, if you are interested or you have already come up with a blog about tech gadgets (or anything else that suits you), then it would be wise if you were to append a page that is titled “Best Gadgets for You”.

If you are writing about movies or music then it would be likewise prudent for you to have a widget at the bottom with the affiliate to the movie or music.

There are virtually unlimited possibilities when it comes to marketing with Amazon Affiliates; they will only be limited by your niche. It is up to you to add as many links as you would like and monetize your page to your liking.

*Tip – Again back to blogs and websites, you can couple Amazon with Google AdSense program to create multiple streams of income.

Rakuten LinkShare

When it comes to advertising online Google and Amazon are among the biggest players but this does not mean that they are your only options. Rakuten Linkshare is an excellent place in which will be able to search for other affiliates for your ads.

This service offers eCommerce businesses with the relevant affiliate marketing services and the company has been critically acclaimed for being the most significant pay for performance affiliate marketing network that is available on the internet today.

Affiliate marketing is one of the most significant businesses given that it is a multi-billion dollar industry and the main source of revenue comes from entrepreneurs such as you.

Being a Rakuten Linkshare affiliate you will be able to get significant access to a huge number of advertisers and this will open you up to numerous possibilities to get commissions from the traffic that your website will be able to generate.

If you can compare this with other marketing services, Linkshare will offer you a good range of competitive options in addition to interesting features.

It is interesting to note that this is one of the oldest affiliate programs in the market but it is quite small in comparison to the larger players in the same industry at the moment.

The most significant advantage of this website, especially for a beginner, is that it is quite easy for you to get approval on the condition that your site is good enough.

One of the chief features that you need to be on the lookout for is the BentoBox which is arguably the most ingenious feature that you will find on Linkshare.

It will offer you as the user with a vast array of options concerning the custom apps and it is custom fit to increase the overall amount of traffic to your site as well as keep the visitors there for longer which will then increase the total amount commission that you will be able to get.

It further gives the publishers the freedom to create links easily and it will direct the customers to a specific product on your site as the advertiser with just one click.

There the cookies can be tracked and the commissions can still be earned with lightens the publisher’s load.

Another feature that would be of use to you is that it allows the user to make coupons easily from the advertisers thus it will be able to direct more traffic to the sites that are capable of making a decent commission.

*Did you know? – You don’t have to have a website to advertise affiliate links. You can do this from a Facebook page and or an Instagram Ad.

Company Referrals

Permanent ads, banners, and links are not the only way that you can stand to make any money through your online activities.

By having a website, you technically have the power to email companies and request them for some items.

For instance, you can draft a mail to a cleaning company informing them of your desire to purchase a specific item or service and at the same time inform them that you are a renowned blogger and that you are looking to write a blog about their products.

In some cases just by mentioning this alone, you will be able to earn some discounts, however, this is not the main agenda.

Also, this strategy will allow you to acquire some very important business contact in public relations, advertising as well as one of the elements of corporate sales.

The beauty of online marketing or working on the online platform is that you will be in a good position to eliminate the services of the middle man and therefore be able to make significant margins.

*Remember – don’t discount the oldest forms of advertising and plain old relationship building. Company referrals are one of these methods.

Social Mention

The business world of today demands that social media and any online presence is a vital tool for the marketing function of the organization; a great number of companies are spending ridiculous amounts so that they can be able to place their advertisements on these spaces.

Social Mention is a platform that was launched for the specific purpose of measuring online presence. The principle idea behind Social Mention is basically to measure the total amount of the social media activity of an individual as well as their influence.

This site can achieve this by measuring some different characteristics if social media actions such as comments, re-tweets, shares, and many more.

If you want to monitor online media, analyze your competition, listen to your audience and when is being said about your business, and grow your business, then this could be for you.

eBay

If you have a certain item that you are looking to sell then the first option you should consider is eBay. It is a top favorite for many although it requires a little time for one to build up a reputation to get clients. Nevertheless here is a how-to guide for all beginners.

*Remember – eBay can be a short term fix for simply making money selling stuff you don’t want or a long term business model.

To begin with, almost anybody can make money off eBay. However, to make any money you will need some sort of a plan.

By simply putting up items for sale and forking out fortunes on listing fees would not cut it. You must find items that will sell to get anywhere.

Also, it is important to note that not all items sold on eBay. This has been a challenge for most beginners on eBay in that they list all sorts of items only to find that their stock never moves that fast.

It is important to focus on items that can be shipped easily. This is unless you have some sort of shipping arrangement that saves costs because no person is willing to spend a fortune on shipping fees when ultimately it would have cost less to purchase it from where they are.

Also, an important thing is to look for items that can get good margins. Clothes are particularly cumbersome in terms of getting excellent margins.

Additionally, one needs to be rather thrifty. It makes no sense to spend $40 to sell an item that costs $10. This only makes sense if you are trying to generate the attention of the other higher profit margin item.

However, it would make zero sense to focus on items that only make cents unless you will recoup the costs on the shipping costs.

Also, buyers have become rather savvy in these affairs and it would also be unethical to charge $12 on an item that will cost you $2 to ship in addition to handling.

Lastly, one should not quit their job so that they can pursue eBay-ing as a beginner. The sole reason is that it has some bit of a learning curve to it.

There are a few tricks that one has to learn to fully survive on eBay. Nevertheless, many individuals make them are living off eBay alone.

There are a few things that one should avoid on eBay as a beginner. Firstly, one should have good customer service.

Do not delay too long in getting the products out to the customer. Whenever the shipping has been delayed the customer will feel agitated or irritated and this could easily lead to negative reviews or disputes.

In case of any issues communicate with the customers well in advance. Secondly, avoid wasting too much money on listings.

Admittedly, at some point, it is hard to get your products noticed and you can be lured into paying for listings. However, this will end up reducing your profits.

The bottom line with eBay is learning the ropes when selling. If you intend to make your business an eBay one, be prepared to ride a rollercoaster learning curve until you hit the sweet spot selling items you intend to.

Once you have achieved a good selling status, you can move to eBay stores and start digging into the eBay selling business.

Amazon

15 Simple Ways to Make Money Online

If you feel that eBay is too small a pond for you then you can opt to try Amazon. Amazon is a brilliant platform that can be used to make a decent income.

This is particularly true with their ability to purchase items with one click on their mobile app and their very tempting free shipping offers. There are many ways that you can get Amazon to pay you regularly. Here are just but a few of them.

Join the Amazon Affiliate Program

This was discussed earlier and at length but it is important to remind you that you can make quite a fortune by joining the Affiliate Program and promote items on your website.

Amazon Handmade

Amazon launched the Amazon Handmade which is a service that enables you as the seller to display your handmade items on the internet and to a larger audience.

At the moment, it would cost you approximately 12 percent on referral fee to sell your handmade crafts such as artwork, jewelry, bedding, furniture, patio, home decor, lighting, and so much more.

Publish and eBook

You can make money making a free registration to Kindle Direct Publishing, which will allow you to have your eBooks to be published on the Kindle platform in a matter of 5 minutes and be on Kindle stores worldwide in the space of 48 hours.

This eliminates the need for the traditional book publishing business where one would have immunity to rejection letters. Here you can publish your novel, with an incredibly easy how-to process.

Moreover, you can earn up to 70 percent royalties on all the sales that you make on the eBook. More importantly, you get to have complete control over your publishing rights and the ability to set your prices as you desire.

Third-Party Selling

You have probably noticed that most of the items that are sold on Amazon are fulfilled by Amazon, however, some items are sold by third parties.

If for instance that you have a product, say a niche product, or you are an artist and you have some artwork that you need to sell, then you can put the item on Amazon as a third party seller which will offer you an excellent platform to reach the masses.

Here there are many options and plans, you will select the one that best suits your individual needs.

Score Discounts on Amazon Reviews

Another easy method to make money off Amazon is to create an account at Snagshout. This can be done free of charge and it works by giving you unlimited access to a marketplace where items are discounted at an astronomical rate, this will be done in exchange for a candid review of the items that you purchase.

The discount rates range from 50 percent to 90 percent of the retail price. Some items are free here or would cost less than a dollar.

Here, you would be shopping in the same manner that you normally do however when the package arrives you would be asked to write an honest review of the product.

Essentially, you would be paid in massive discounts for items that you probably would have been purchasing nonetheless.

This isn’t exactly making money, but the discounts you get are huge.

Etsy

If it so happens that you are a crafter by profession then there is no doubt that you have heard of this platform before.

It is home to more than 800 thousand shops that are managed by sellers who specialize in making all manner of things such as home-made soaps, jewelry, music, clothing and so much more.

Here there is every category of handmade items that you can imagine, you can fit just about anything on ETSY.

It is an excellent place for the crafters to connect with individuals that are interested in purchasing their goods.

It is possible to make money on this platform provided that you have the crafts to sell. Many shops are operating here and they cannot be doing so if there is no money to be earned.

At the moment it is not very possible to have concrete data as to how much each of these shops is making given that the owners are not very forthcoming with the information.

However, it is possible to estimate using average sales and average prices in any given shop. Every shop is going to have a slight variation in their overall margins but there are some success stories such as a shop called Three Birds Nest that supposedly makes over $70,000 in sales in any given month. This is quite impressive.

However, there are a few things that you should consider before delving into this particular business. First and foremost, is that it will not be an instant success.

The business will take some time to grow and you will probably need to work on it for quite some time, which is true for almost every business but this is just so that you can manage your expectations. Therefore, if you are looking for a quick fix then this is probably not your cup of tea for the moment.

Secondly, as much as your business is online the product is still a physical item that you built so you might need to factor in something like storage costs. Being a craftsman you are probably aware that handmade crafts are very demanding in terms of care.

Thirdly, you might also want to consider packaging and shipping as these are necessary items of the trade and will cost you a pretty penny not to mention time.

In the beginning, most start-ups have claimed that this particular item is a serious bottleneck for their business and it takes some time to sort it out. You need to properly plan for this to avoid diminished growth.

Also, there is a need to factor in factory overheads. If you enjoy the process of making things then this should not bother you all too much.

However, if you only have a liking for handmade things (simply seeing them, buying them and selling them) then spending hours slaving over an item shall not be all that appealing to you.

But that is not to say that you cannot delve into the crafts market without knowing anything and not make money; it is possible to make a killing.

It is important to note that there is a significant difference between making many cool items and selling them to happy customers for some little pocket money and making a fulltime business that ships hundreds probably thousands of handmade items every single month.

Craigslist

You have probably or purchased a few items off craigslist. If you have been wondering how you can make money off this platform then you are in the right place.

Craigslist is a rather popular option when it comes to buying and selling items online. However, there are more popular options such as eBay and Amazon.

The only difference with Craigslist is that the platforms charge you nothing. While eBay would increase its fees that tend to eat into your profits, Craigslist will not charge you a dime.

It is also a very convenient platform to use as it allows you to search for the items that you need by city. After you find your item you can contact the owner via email or call to view the item.

In the UK, there is a similar site called Gum Tree which sales of physical items can be made in the same manner.

Know about the product you want to buy

This is often a rule of thumb when it comes to purchasing anything online; before hitting the buy button then you must do your due diligence in terms of research.

Craigslist is not an exception. Always research on the prices and the quality and also the customer feedback. This sounds obvious but it is often the key component of any successful Craigslist deal.

Craigslist can be defined as a very inefficient market. A number of the people on this platform tend to be oblivious of the fair market value of items of the stuff they sell.

Some would overprice a used item by $200. Some will pay the full price of a new item for a used item.

Negotiate Ruthlessly

Success stories on Craigslist attest that there is no fixed price on this platform. Therefore, for you to have any success here then you need to have excellent negotiating skills.

One should not be afraid of rejection because the other party will not accept the offer. The beauty is that other sellers in the same market are willing to sell the same product.

However, having cash ready to buy is a significant advantage because ultimately cash is irresistible. Also, learn to be patient because the right deal is never easy to come by.

Okay so now that is all about Craigslist. So how do you make money once you purchase the items? Well, there are several options.

Restore and Sell

Here, you would look for items that are old and probably need some little work. It is often the case that damaged stuff or old and dirty stuff will be discounted and these are the items that you should be focusing on. Make use of your skills and fix them up a little bit so that they look new and sell them for a higher price.

Flipping

This is where you buy items that are in great working condition, then you turn them around and sell them for a higher cost.

This is a fairly easy task and can be done by almost anybody. However, it would be advisable to stick to the item that you are good at. For instance, if you are good at flipping cars then, by all means, stick to that.

Amazon Mechanical Turk

If you are interested in making money online then this platform by Amazon is probably what you need to be looking at right now.

Amazon Mechanical Turk is a reputable site that will earn you legit cash provided that you follow the guidelines.

If you have ever come across the term crowdsourcing, and if you have not, then Amazon Mechanical Turk is the best place to get a taste of it.

This program works something like Elance where you need to input your skills and information. From there you can go ahead to scavenge for menial tasks that would encompass sifting out inappropriate web content to doing fundamental data entry work to even transcribing audio recordings.

Like any other job the same rules apply here; the more time you spend doing it the better your skills become and the more your quality improves.

Ultimately this will increase the overall chance that you have of making money. It is worth noting that the payouts from this platform are often very small and the payment is often in Amazon credits.

Nevertheless, Mturk is an excellent place where you stand to make good or decent money as you sit on the couch. There are several advantages to this site as well.

To begin with, setting up an account with Amazon Mechanical Turk is very easy; it is just a matter of finding the site and signing up.

There is a 48 hours window where your details will need to be verified but shortly after that, you will start making your money.

Secondly, you can work from anywhere. Provided that you have a computer with access to a good internet connection then there is no reason why you cannot make money on Amazon Mechanical Turk.

This platform also has very amazing flexibility in the sense that it does not stress you to maintain a specific level of earning so that your account may be kept open. Additionally, you can open and close an account as you see fit.

LinkedIn

LinkedIn can be described as a social media platform for professionals. Most often than not it does not offer a direct way of making money but it is an awesome platform that connects you to your current or your potential peers.

Nevertheless, there are some ways that one can use to generate some revenue stream using LinkedIn,

Developing the Mailing list

One of the possible ways that you can make money is by growing your mailing list. There is plenty of potential for income in the mailing list regardless of whether you are selling your products or simply marketing some affiliate products.

There are several ways in which you can grow your mailing list.

First, you can create a LinkedIn group with a topic that is relatively interesting and relevant at the same time.

Then you can mail the members of the group using a specific template upon joining. This can be done periodically; maybe once in a week.

These can promote webinars, free content giveaways, and such items. However, this is often very challenging as some people are reluctant to give consent for you to add them to your mailing list.

Selling Information Products

If you are in the business of marketing your informational products then LinkedIn is the place to be.

You can funnel your sales by getting people from your page on your business page. This is how to go about it.

First, create a piece of content that is free. This would include free training videos, reports, white papers or even e-books.

This is a very easy way to lure potential customers into your page. After this, you can share a link of your business page to your LinkedIn professionals.

Then you invite the people to a webinar; these should promise valuable education at no cost to them (regardless of whether they will incline that a sales pitch would be coming their way in the end. Ultimately this is an excellent method of using your LinkedIn connections.

iTunes

If you are a musician, artist, writer, pundit, or have the skills to produce any type of audio podcast, text or video that is worth consuming, then you can make some money on iTunes.

In selling any of your products here, you can go shoulder to shoulder with some of the largest marketing clouts in the business. It is possible to make a very decent living in the iTunes store.

First off iTunes can be described as an affiliate method of promoting your business in which you as the affiliate get rewarded for every subscriber, visitor, customer or a sale that is provided using your efforts.

How you make money off this site is that it requires you to provide an affiliate link on your site or website that directs to the iTunes Store. Every time that an individual clicks on this link and purchases something from the iTunes Music Store you get your revenue in the form of a commission.

The amount of money that you get paid for is dependent on the overall number of people that will eventually see your links followed with whether they purchase anything following their viewing of your link.

So generally you stand to be paid 5 cents of a $0.99 tract that is purchased. However, the truth of the matter is that as an affiliate you do not get paid a cent if your traffic does not lead to a purchase.

 

Blogging

Blogging is arguably one of the most popular trends nowadays. There is a blog about anything and everything. More importantly, it is very possible to earn a decent living off blogging.

Several success stories claim that for them blogging started as just a hobby which then grew into a part-time gig and at some point, it grew into a full-time job and eventually became a job that is capable of employing other people. This can as well be your success story.

One of the things that you need to know before diving into blogging is that there is no precise way of blogging.

A blog can be about anything provided you have an interest in it and more importantly, it generates enough traffic.

There may be several people that would claim that there is a specific formula for success in blogging. However, the actual truth is that every blog is unique and has their own unique success story.

Therefore you need to forge your path in as far as blogging is concerned. However, to make money off blogging you have to monetize your blog in one way or another.

The traffic that you generate should not be in vain, it should count towards something monetary. Here is where partnerships with Google come in handy.

You could as well opt to be blogging specifically for a given client on a particular product and the client pays you. Ultimately, there has to be a monetary aim to the blog for it to be profitable to you.

Monetizing can be done in the form of, paid ads, Google Ads, Amazon ads which we have discussed in detail. Most Bloggers these days have their products about blogging or the service they provide.

If Blogging interests you check out the passiveincomejet.com for a thorough program on how to get started.

Wikipedia

Another really good and little known way of making money off the internet is through Wikipedia. Several people claim that it is a very easy method of making money and all you have to do is to edit pages.

Do not listen to these people because they have never tried editing Wikipedia. It is an absolute nightmare. The beauty is that it is a nightmare for the companies that are on Wikipedia as well.

Wikipedia is an excellent, expedient, and a very accessible source of information for the world; there is so much at stake for companies, people that are cataloged on the site, and products.

This means that there are a number of these individuals that are more than willing to fork out monies to editors to help them in the process of editing.

In essence, Wikipedia editors are supposed to be dispassionate in their writing because they are not affiliated in any way to what they are writing.

Ergo, paid writing would disrupt this whole process and that is why Wikipedia is a free site. However, paid writing and editing have been happening for a very long time now. It has been estimated that clients pay up to $1000 to edit or write a Wikipedia article.

Final words

There are so many different ways in which you can make money online. A good majority of these incomes are easy to achieve and often (and good for those with a little budget) they do not require much investment except for time and dedication.

If you are looking for some easy online incomes then you can apply some of the tips provided in this post.

Good luck with your future internet endeavors…
