This is article about different ways on how to make money online, either as a hobby or a full time job. The most important lesson to learn is that ONLY YOU CAN MAKE IT HAPPEN. No one can do it for you.
Everyone wants to be rich, earn that financial freedom that we are all longing for. Only a very select few will achieve this. Making money online can be as easy or as hard and you want it to be. In this article I have tried to explain things in the most simplest of ways.
Online, Internet marketers create and use eBooks in a way to both make money and help fellow marketers to make even more money online. You will find tons of eBooks on every marketer’s computers and tablets.
An Internet marketer will never stop trying to make money online, even if he/ she have more failures than successes and even if it leaves them financially broke. The power of making money is UN-REAL.
Some of these methods are easy and some are hard to implement, but overall you need patience to complete each task.
How To Make Money Online Fast:

If you have a website or blog and you want to make some extra money from your site then Google Adsense is the program for you. Your site can be based on any niche you like and as long as you are posting good content and getting good traffic then you will make money.

This reads like an advert for Google Adsense I know but that is because it really is the best programme to be involved with. Anyone can register for Adsense and anyone can be successful with Adsense.
2. Selling On Fiverr

EBay has been a part of our lives since 1995 and was a success of the dot com bubble. Today eBay is worth billions of dollars and has become a household name that is known globally.
EBay has tens of millions of active every day users, all buying and selling their items every minute of the day. You can register for free and list your items for sale.
EBay is known by internet marketers as (feebay) because eBay charge fees to list your item, then they take a percentage when you sell your item on their site. If you also use eBay’s payment processing site PayPal then you will be charged again to receive your money into your PayPal account.

4. Selling On Amazon
Like eBay Amazon.com has been online around 1995 but Amazon has had a very different up-bringing. In the early days of Amazon.com only sold 5 types of products, these were Compact Disks, Computer Hardware, Computer Software, Videos, and Books. As Amazon.com has grown over the years, now they sell everything you can think of.
Amazon.com makes billions of dollars every year from people buying from their website. Amazon also lets you list your items for sale alongside what they are selling. You can even become an Affiliate Associates Programme and advertise their products on your website and you earn a commission.
If you are a keen writer you can even become a published author for free. Amazon has KDP (Kindle Direct Publishing). You can either earn 35% or 70% commission on your book sales. If your books are good you could even become a Best Seller.
5. Flipping Websites
Some people online are making money from what is known as (Flipping Websites). For experienced users this can be an easy task but for beginners this can be a nightmare.
First off you need to select what niche you want to sell into. You will need to buy a domain name; this is what people will fist see in search engine results and what they will type into the URL address bar on your browser.
You will then need a hosting package for your domain; your hosting is what you will install your website onto so it becomes viewable to the world. You would then add your affiliate products and Google Adsense and promote your website. When you sell your website all you need to do is transfer the domain name to the new owner and your done with that project and it’s time to move onto another.
6. Becoming An Affiliate
When you decide to become an affiliate you are effectively becoming an Internet Marketer and an Internet Market creates accounts on sites like Amazon Associates Program then puts Amazon products on their websites alongside Google Adsense and then advertises these sites everywhere he/ she possibly can. When search engines index these sites then when you search for something like iPhones you get the results.
Affiliate marketing is a very good way to make money online, mainly because the initial outlay is very low and you can potentially make thousands.
If you are lucky enough to become successful in this field then you can make it into a full time job but many affiliate marketers just do it as a hobby.
7. YouTube Product Reviews
People have been reviewing products well before the launch of YouTube. YouTube just give us a platform to get them out to millions in the form of a video instead of something you may read in a magazine or newspaper.
People review products for many different reasons, but the main reason is not to just make money but to increase their subscribers/ followers.
There are people on YouTube that are making money from reviewing products on YouTube by linking to their websites where they have other reviewed products that they got for free for the purpose of reviewing for the manufacturer.
Other YouTube reviewers simply give away their product to one of their subscribers when they have reviewed it.
So there is money to be made on YouTube. Why not try it for yourself, it’s free to register and you can review anything you like from pizza to your TV.
Are you an expert in a certain niche? Are you good at getting your point across? Why not become a tutor?
Showing people how a certain goal is achieved is big business these days. There is a lot of money to be made helping others to achieve a goal.
Anyone can become a tutor, you don’t need any qualifications, and you just need to be committed to your cause of helping others. You can setup a website with a contact form and your prices and people will come to you.
The best places to advertise yourself as a tutor is on freelance websites. These are free to join but they do take a commission when you get hired by someone. All you have to do is search for them on Google.
9. SEO Services
Starting an SEO business is not as easy as some people online make it out to be. You need to know what you are talking about; you can’t just enter this niche and hope it all falls into place.
Search Engine Optimisation is a process that every website on the Internet needs to go through. You will need to become an expert in the following areas.
- Keyword Research
- Keyword Optimisation
- Registering Domains
- Getting Good Hosting Deals
- Content Creation
Your clients will be expecting for you to get them to the top of search engine results for their chosen keywords.
If you’re new to SEO but still want to make money in this niche then I suggest that you read everything you can online about it. There is lots of competition out there.
There is a lot of money to be made with this method, but it’s also very time consuming.
A blog is short for “Web-Log”. It is basically a website that is only updated with entries, comments, events, videos etc. A blog is usually maintained by a single person who is known as a “Blogger”. The blog will be kept up to date by the blogger with new content of all kinds. Some bloggers will update their blogs more than others.
A lot of major companies have blog online these days that their blogger will keep up to date with product info, special offers etc. Your blog can be on any niche you choose, if you can monetize your niche then it will make starting a blog worthwhile.
The biggest and best platform to create a blog in on the WordPress platform. You can either host it yourself or use wordpress’s own hosting, the only down fall to having it hosted on WordPress is that you cannot add third party plugins.
Bloggers also advertise their blogs on other blogs within the same niche to get backlinks; this will help improve its search ability within Search Engines. This is one of the best known ways to get backlinks to your website for free.
11. Selling Home-Made Products Online
If you have a hobby in creating stuff like girl’s bobbles, cupcakes, t-shirts etc. then did you know that you can make some really good money by selling these online.
Creating a website is very easy to be done and you can then take pictures of your products and upload them onto your website for sale. You control the price; you are your own boss.
Tell your friends, family and work colleagues about what you have created. Upload them to your Social Networking accounts like Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram etc. You could even sell them on eBay, Amazon and Craigslist.
If you do decide to sell on Facebook then it is a very good idea to create a Facebook Page, call it something catchy then invite everyone on your Facebook account to it. You will be surprised how much you can sell to just your friends and family.
This is an awesome way for all you creative people to make money online easily.
12. Sending Out Emails
Sending emails can be a good way to make money if you know what you are doing. The concept is simple. You collect emails by offering something for free online like an eBook, then you “upsell” products at a later date to everyone on your list.
The hardest part of this method is actually collecting email addresses. You have to advertise it right and make sure that your list is an Opt-in or Double Opt-in.
When you have your list you will need to build a relationship with the people on your list by sending them stuff that they are interested in, also send them freebies so they will welcome your emails in the future. Then when you have their trust can you send them something that they have to buy so you can make some money.
13. Selling Status Updates
Everyone these days have a Twitter or Facebook account, it is also very easy to get a large following on these networks with much effort. Did you know that you can make money from your Social Networking accounts?
If you do have a large following on these networks then advertisers want to reach out and put their adverts onto your Twitter and Facebook pages. You can earn from $1 a tweet to $100 a tweet. If this interests you then you can register for these sites for free and you can even set what you want to charge advertisers.
When you register on these sites you can either become a publisher and pay for tweets to get your message out there onto peoples Twitter and Facebook profiles or you can become an Advertiser and charge Publishers to advertise on your accounts.
This is a good way to make money for doing practically nothing but it does take time to get your account noticed by good publishers.
14. Selling Stock Photography

If you can take a good quality picture then you can sell it. From a $12 disposable camera to a $1000 kit, a photo is a photo and people are looking to buy them online.
