10 Ways to Make More Money Online
10 Ways to Make More Money Online
If you are good at something, there is always a way to make money out of it. Freelancing works on the same principle. If you are good at writing, designing or coding, all you need to do is find someone who needs your service and get paid for it.
You can also monetize your hobby by teaching others how to do it via websites like Skillshare or Udemy. And if you have experience in sales, just use your expertise to sell things online – that’s exactly what I did!
2. Selling Digital Products
Products that come in digital form will never go obsolete unlike physical products which depreciate over time. Take audiobooks for example – you can buy them in CDs but most people these days prefer to download or stream audio files online.
You can sell eBooks you’ve written, songs you’ve recorded or videos you made. There are lots of platforms where you can sell your digital products – one with which I was able to make good sales is Vendor Express.
This is similar to selling digital products except that instead of selling physical goods, all you have to do is source for the items and then resell them on your site.
The only downside is that unlike in brick-and-mortar stores where customers can personally see the item they’re buying before paying for it, when it comes to dropshipping, the customers will only get to see the pictures of the item they’re buying from your site.
4. Selling Services
This is probably the easiest way to make money online because you don’t have to bother with a lot of things – you only provide a service and get paid for it. Services that can be sold online include writing, designing, marketing, coding and lots more.
5. Selling Physical Products
Selling physical products requires an initial investment since you’ll need to source for items first before selling them on your site. But if you are good at product presentation and marketing, all you have to do is find a reliable supplier, create an e-commerce site then just let the products sell themselves.
The most popular among entrepreneurs who want to start this business are dropshipping suppliers since they require little effort on the part of the sellers.
If you’re looking for a supplier, I recommend Aliexpress – there are lots of clothing items that can be sold online!
6. Paid Surveys
Paid surveys can help you make a little bit of money online which you can later use to buy items on your wishlist or save for a rainy day.
The problem with paid surveys is that it takes lots of time, patience and effort to complete them but they pay very little – not enough to be able to buy even a single piece from the clothing store! With that being said, if you’re just starting up with an online business and don’t have much yet, paid surveys are not bad as supplemental income.
7. YouTube Videos
Selling videos through YouTube is where I earn most of my money from – my best performing video has already earned me more than $200 dollars! I upload videos on a regular basis which mostly pertain to beauty and fashion topics.
Some of my eBooks, song covers and lip syncs are also available in my YouTube channel. If you have a lot of followers in social media, you can promote your videos through paid ads then get paid when they click on the link!
8. Affiliate Marketing
Affiliate marketing is a type of business where you only do the promoting part while someone else does the selling for you. There are lots of affiliate networks like FlexOffers or CJ (Commission Junction) that will market your products to their list of advertisers for free – all you have to do is be an affiliate! You get 100% commission for every sale that happens via your referral code.
9. Information Marketing
This is a little bit more difficult than affiliate marketing because you have to create a product first to be able to promote it. But if the product has useful information, people will definitely pay for it – this is what I do in my blog!
You can either choose from creating an eBook or a video course then market them through your site or through other social media channels that allow paid ads like Facebook and Instagram.
Creating an e-commerce store is probably one of the most challenging things to do if you want it done right – especially when you plan on selling physical products.
But once everything’s set up, sending orders will only take minutes so this is definitely worth all the time and effort! I’m personally planning on setting up my own e-commerce store soon – I just need to find a reliable supplier first before I can start with it.
That’s about it for today! Although making money online is definitely not easy, it sure is rewarding if you put in the time and effort into doing something that you truly love. Just remember that when there are winners there are also losers – don’t push yourself too hard if things aren’t working out right away.
For me, blogging isn’t about becoming successful overnight, it’s the fun I get out of writing and reading other people’s comment that keeps me coming back.
It takes time to build an online business so don’t expect anything big in the next couple of months; learning to work with patience is one thing you’ll gain from all this experience!
