We’re in the digital world, and as my mum would say, “Tom, we’re in the Jet Age”. Long before I discovered the ways to make money online, I looked all around the intenet and stormed search engines on regular basis, all to no avail. I knew there was a lot of space at the top, but didnt understand how to get there- because its not just plain- else, everyone would know it. I would be explaining in a very explanatory manner (Excuse my tautology) about the proven and tested ways to make money online, without having to do any physical job or spend too much on resources. Follow me as we go on into this interesting topic. Note that when I would be going into these soon, content would be available only to registered users of this site.
WAYS TO MAKE MONEY ONLINE
Owning A Blog:
Yes, the first way to make some cool cash online is by blogging. What does blogging mean, what does a blog entail? To answer these questions, kindly check out my post on what is a blog.
Now, you can’t just start earning from your blog by just writing posts like a typewriter, and you can’t just leave your website unstructured. You have to design it to make it appealing to gain more visitors and make it stand unique. See what I am offering bloggers and webdesigners here. Now, to create a blog, you need to define what kind of blog you want. I have something to say that is worthy of note:
It is better to use a blogspot blog than a wordpress blog that is not self hosted. However, a self-hosted wordpress blog is the best, based on my experience
Self-hosted wordpress is somehow expensive, when compared to the two, and I can say it is worth it, because you would have to buy a domain and a host. Note: Buy a shared hosting also called Managed WordPress Hosting, and not just web hosting that is cheap. It is cheap but has its disadvantages in that you would experience server downtime and various vulnerabilities on your website.
The way to earn from your website or blog is by applying for high paying Ads services, Like the Google Adsense, and other alternatives that I promise to post soon. Also coming are posts about the Google Adsense Program.
To be a successful blogger, you have to find your passion, or what is called ‘niche’ which would say what you would like to be blogging about. The popular ones to choose from include
-Tech and review blogs – www.phonefixer.xyz falls under this category
-Health/ Medical blogs
So, choose your field and express yourself. Blogs can easily generate tens of thousands of dollars to hundreds of thousands of dollars per month when done right. Yes, that much. But it won’t be easy to get there. However, looking back on it, a year from now you’ll wish you started today. So why wait another moment?
2. PROMOTIONAL (ADVERTISEMENT) SERVICES:
If your website is generating high traffic, or you have so many thousand likes on your Facebook page, Instagram followers and twitter followers, you can use any, or all of these platforms to write for a company that pays you for this service to tell others about them. Dont’ be too ‘cheap’, and don’t spam your own social media, so as not to lose the flavour.
3. HAVING AN ONLINE STORE:
You can also choose to own a Virtual Store online by going into e-Commerce which includes building and managing an online store. There, you can sell various items like phones, cars, televisions, appliances and various stuffs and make profit from there. You can send me a mail if you are interested in building an online store for yourself with wordpress- Affordable and secure, when compared to using an Online store website builder.
Building an online store with relatively cheap products at first would encourage customers to switch to your site, and they would tell others about it if they are satisfied with your products and make money online.
4. AFFILIATE MARKETING / LEGIT REFERRAL PROGRAMS:
Another way to earn money is to refer people to a particular site offering certain services with an unique code given to you, and in return, you get coupon codess, vouchers or cash rewards from the site (make money online). This is very easy to do, as many websites such as we hosting or domain companies, online stores and other website offering physical services allow affiliations with them to earn from their program. Links to few website offering affiliations are listed below:

5. Gigs on Fiverr
Fiverr is now the world’s largest marketplace for people to make money selling small services (known as ‘gigs’).
What you offer could be absolutely anything, from writing and translating, social media posting, playing pranks and teaching to creating music, voiceovers and short video clips for people all around the world!
The default price is $5 (hence Fiverr..), but you can attach extra services to gigs for more money. Whilst it might not seem like much, it can quickly add up and there are plenty of examples of people making a really good living from the site. The key is to get a system in place which minimises the time spent on each work. Fiverr is one of the biggest providers in the gig economy on the web and you can sell a wide variety of services and products through this medium. Do the research and find out what you can offer. However, keep in mind that like any other money-making task, it takes time to succeed here. And stellar reviews will help you generate more and more income over time.
6. Be An Online Tutor on various subjects:
Becoming a tutor to other students is easier than ever. Until recently your market was limited to local face-to-face sessions, but thanks to online tutoring sites you can go global!
Udemy allows anyone to create an online course (on literally anything!) and get paid forever after as users take it up. Udemy is a great place to build out technical courses that will teach people how to do some complicated task or learn some sought-after skill, making you to make money online.
7. Teach Others As A Virtual Tutor
Want to teach others directly? You can also choose to be a virtual tutor and engage in one-on-one tutoring sessions or even host Webinars to help people directly with any number of topics. This is terrific for teaching people new languages. If you have a second-language skill, this might be the right option to generate some money quickly and easily.
You could teach a number of things virtually. This could range from technical to non-technical skills. For example, you could use a site like VerbalPlanet to teach a language; or try to source clients directly through social media or other avenues and process their payments through PayPal.
8. Freelance work:
Perhaps you enjoy writing, managing Facebook pages or doing a little bit of graphic design in your spare time. There are so many freelance jobs out there that require simple skills or just time that someone else might not have. I make high quality logos and photo cartooning for different clients and sites, and this is one of my means of revenue. Tap into this anointing.
9. Review music for money
If you love music, make it your business by reviewing unsigned bands and artists online for cash with Slicethepie.
It can take a while to build up your reputation but some users of the site have said that they earn £40 a month.
10. Writing Articles For Websites:
Depending on your skill level when it comes to writing, you could always find work writing articles for other people. At the outset, this won’t pay you much, especially if you have little in the way of examples or portfolio pieces. But, like anything else, you can build this up over time and start to make money online.
You could also do few things related to writing such as copywriting for descriptions, emails, or other sales-related content. Do your due diligence to find out what the going rates are for writing articles, and even try to find a mentor if you’re serious about making money online through this method, as many times, website or blog owners are too busy to post on their sites and may want a helping hand.
