Did you know that you can make a fair amount of money without even leaving your house? If you want to learn how to make money online, then continue reading because I will give you 10 options to earn some extra money online. These options won’t make you rich overnight but can act as an excellent additional income stream. Now, let’s get to the 10 Ideas on How To Make Money Online.
#1 Sell Your Photos.
Yes, you’ve read correctly. Some websites will pay for your photos, for example
All you have to do is take your camera (your phone camera will do) and take pictures of anything. Some popular image motifs include flowers, trees, water, families, and animals in case you need some inspiration.
#2 Affiliate Marketing.
Affiliate Marketing describes a marketing arrangement by which an online retailer pays commission to an external website for traffic or sales generated from referrals. To start with Affiliate Marketing, you will have to join an Affiliate Marketing Program. When you get into the said program, you will receive a link from the company whose product you will be promoting. You can now post this link on your website, social media page,… wherever you want. This will earn you a commission every time a reader clicks on your link and buys a product. The commission will be between 30% and 60% of the product price, depending on the product and company.
#3 Become a Tutor.
If you’re good in a subject and enjoy helping others, as well as explaining, you might also enjoy tutoring. A good site for online tutoring is tutorMe. You make $16/hour and have a flexible schedule, which means you can choose how often you want to tutor. The best part is that you can do it from wherever you are as long as you have access to the internet.
#4 Start a Blog.
If you enjoy writing, you should consider blogging. To start blogging, you will need to create a website. Good places where you can create your websites easily are Wix and WordPress. Eventually, when you get traffic on your page, you can make money from your blog ads. It’s essential to add that it will take a while before your blog earns you any money, but when it does, it can make you up to a couple of thousand dollars a month.
#5 Become a Freelance Writer.
If you don’t want to create a website but still earn money with writing, becoming a Freelance Writer could be the right option for you. As a Freelance Writer, you might be asked to do everything from developing topics to writing about, providing an outline for an article, and writing an entire article. Websites where you can start offering your services as a Writer are:
#6 Create Online Courses.
I already mentioned this as an option on my Passive-Income Blog Post a week ago. You can create courses online about anything you like, such as “How To Make Money Online”. You should pick a topic about which you know a lot since people will be buying this course to learn about the topic of your choice.
Websites where you can start building your online course are
Udemy where you can start your Online Course at $14.99 and
Teachable which starts at $39.
#7 Fill Out Surveys.
Some websites actually pay you to fill out online surveys. You can make from a few cents to $50 for one survey, which, again, won’t make you rich overnight, but it’s a straightforward option to earn a bit of extra cash without having to do much for it. Some websites that pay you to fill out surveys are:
#8 Start a YouTube Channel.
This is probably one of the most accessible options I have talked about in this post. All you have to do is grab your camera (again, your phone camera will do) and make a video about anything. You can make money from ads and eventually maybe even PR.
#9 Sell Used Textbooks.
Almost everyone has old textbooks lying around at home that do nothing but take space in your cupboard. Since textbooks are reusable and quite expensive, you should consider reselling them. There are a few websites where you can do so:
#10 Become a Translator.
This is perfect if you speak two languages. You will get documents in one language and be asked to translate them into your native language. To start translating, all you have to do is sign up on a website. I would suggest Gengo or Stepes answer a few questions, including which two languages you know well, and then you will get paid for translating documents. Depending on the customer and length of the document, you can make a couple of thousand dollars per document (to get paid such a high amount, you will have to translate a very long document and be qualified to do so, because these documents usually require much time and pondering over the right words to translate the correct meaning.) Important to add is that you will not automatically get sent documents if you sign up. You won’t even be considered if your two languages are too “common”, which means if you speak a relatively “rare” language, you will most likely be accepted!).
Making Money Online with one of these 10 options can serve as a profitable additional income stream and eventually help you escape your 9 to 5 job or make sure that you will never have to get one.
