There are literally hundreds of ways to make money online and it would take hundreds of posts to mention and discuss each one. The following is a list of some of the more usual ways that internet marketers are making money from the internet.
The list is arranged in no particular order.
Start a blog and share free information
Sharing free information will attract people to come to your site and they’ll bring more friends if your content is really valuable and entertaining.
One of the great advantages of blogs is that it is very easy to get search engine traffic since the robots love freshly updated site. There are actually lots of folks who make money from blogging.
You can then moneytize your blog traffic with variety of different methods such as Adsense and selling advertising space, products, and services.
Sell other people’s products and services
If you don’t have anything of your own to make money from you can also make easy money by selling other peoples goods and earn commission.
In the online world this is called as affiliate marketing. You can find thousands of affiliate products in large sites such as at Clickbank, Commission Junction and Amazon. As an affiliate you can earn up to a whopping 75% commission per sale.
Make money from people’s content
This doesn’t mean stealing other people’s content. This simply means selling products such as ebook and software that the author allows you full master resale rights license (MRR).
With MRR license you keep 100% of the sale without having to give the owner any share. The original owner makes gains from any affiliate links embedded with the product, generates traffic to his site, or creates a strong branding for any business promoted on it.
Join get paid to websites
There are people who easily make extra money with get paid to (GPT) money making programs online. This involves getting paid to click on ads, get paid to place banners, get paid to surf, get paid to read email, and many more of this sort.
You can’t really make decent money by performing the actual program since you only earn pennies per clicks. You do earn some money here by referring other people to join under you.
Create a unique product and sell it online
You might have some expertise that many people are searching online. Make informational product out of it then convert it into a PDF ebook that can be easily downloaded by the purchaser.
The only tools needed with this are a PDF converter, a ebook cover maker, and a mini-website that serves as your salespage.
Join CPA programs and make money by generating leads. Generating leads can be an extremely lucrative way to make money online.
Many CPA (cost per action) programs pay you for every lead you bring them. Mortgage leads, for example can make you more than $40 per lead, whether the conversion is made or not.
The usual process of lead generation involves setting up a site to bring traffic, and then funneling traffic to a page where the visitor requests more information about a product or service.
Involve yourself in the online retail trade
One of the easy but rather complicated way to make cash on the internet is to get into the online retail trade. Ebay and Craigslist are the two of the most popular websites you can use.
The process may involve purchasing products from either website to sell to the other. You may also purchase products at a wholesale price and retail it on other ecommerce sites.
Give away products or any freebies and build your list
List building is one of the powerful ways to make online money. This involves setting up a site specifically to capture names and emails.
Once you got a considerable amount of subscribers you can make money out of it by offering products or services that is related to their interests. Internet marketers usually combine this method with affiliate marketing.
Building content sites and monetizing it with Google adsense
This is probably one of the easiest yet evasive ways to make cash online. Many webmasters create sites for adsense but most fail due to lack of proper knowledge in generating traffic to the site.
Many successful adsense money makers use search engine optimization (SEO) to bring traffic. People from this kind of traffic are the ones that will most likely click on adsense ads.
Offer freelance jobs and online services
You can offer yourself as a virtually assistant webmasters, online business owners, and even other web workers. Some freelancers and small businesses desperately need help accomplishing their jobs or running their businesses.
You can make up to $20 and up an hour doing this sort of work, depending on your expertise.
Provide service and support for open source software
There are many online business owners who look for people who can help them set-up and configure their web content management systems like WordPress, Joomla and Drupal. You can find such people in freelance sites such as UpWork.
Flip websites or get involve with Domaining
This business involves buying, selling, developing and making money from domain names.
A domainer purchases many domain names and sells them to interested buyers. This is similar to real estate investing offline and domainers also make money by developing websites and reselling it to a buyer.
