In this video I share 7 ways to make money online.
Whether you are looking to earn some extra income, or want the freedom to work full-time from the comfort of your home or on-the-go, this article should give you some helpful ideas.
No method will give you overnight success, however if you consistently work at something, you will get results.
If you enjoy recording videos, vlogging or sharing your interests/passions, a YouTube channel could be one way for you to earn money online. You can earn money on YouTube by monetising your videos via Google Adsense, which allows adverts to appear on your videos, and you earn a certain amount of money per 1000 views on your channel. Alternatively, you may get sponsored for your videos by brands if you have a substantial following, or you can use affiliate marketing to earn money from your videos.
Blogging is a fun way of earning money online, especially if you enjoy writing and sharing your thoughts and ideas with others.
One of the ways to earn money through your blog is affiliate marketing. For example, Amazon have an affiliate programme called Amazon Associates. If visitors click on an affiliate link and make a purchase using your link, you will receive a percentage of the money made through that purchase.
3) Social Media
If you enjoy taking selfies for Instagram, are a pro at Snapchatting or an expert at tweeting, you could turn your social media presence into a nice little earner. Get yourself a substantial following on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and Snapchat and brands will be chasing you to promote their products/services on your social media for a healthy sum of money.
4) Online Surveys
There are genuine opportunities to make money from completing surveys online. They usually just require you to register and complete profile questionnaires so that they can send you relevant surveys. Survey invitations are sent to your email inbox, and you are rewarded with either money or vouchers depending on the survey site. In the UK, some of the genuine sites include Valued Opinions, Panelbase and YouGov.
5) Sell goods online using sites like eBay and Amazon
You can sell anything and everything online. Amazon and eBay provide excellent platforms if you think you might be able to sell something for a profit, and eBay is particularly good for new sellers.
6) Sell On Your Own Website
It may seem daunting and near-impossible to run your own online business selling products, but it is a lot easier than you might think.
All you need is
– a domain name (or website address). I purchase my domain names from UK2.net: https://www.uk2.net/referral/?referral_uuid=C0CFB9F6-6994-11E7-9114-0199005961C8
– a hosting account (which is where your website traffic will go. I use Hostgator to host my websites: http://partners.hostgator.com/c/402571/177309/3094
shopping cart software. You can get many for free, like OpenCart, and they are easy to set up. Some hosting companies have one-click setup for the most popular shopping carts.
Once you’ve set up your online store, all you need to do is add your products, promote them via social media, advertising or word-of-mouth and wait for the sales to come through. Note: It will take time to become established.
7) Create an eBook or Online Course
If you have expertise or interest in a particular area, then you can create an eBook or online course, and sell it online. If you have something worthwhile to share, people will buy it. Promote your eBook or online course via social media or a YouTube channel.
