HOW TO MAKE MONEY ONLINE
Technology has managed to weave its way into every single aspect of our society, and we happen to think that is a great thing.
Technology’s ever-pervading permeation into society has caused a dramatic upheaval in the way we live, work and entertain ourselves. Thanks to the disruptive nature of the internet, the rate of change of technology has only increased exponentially in recent years.
Yet, with so much change in the world today, and a nearly-instantaneous access to the globe’s population through mediums such as social media and online search, many people are still finding it difficult on how to utilize the technology inherently available through the internet, to actually make money online.
It is not easy making money online today. With so much competition and so many people and headlines vying for our attention, sifting through and finding reputable sources to generate any respectable amount of income through the web has become an ever-increasing challenge.
Most times, what happens is that people run into unscrupulous Internet Marketers who have less-than altruistic intentions, they extract money from people rather than helping people achieve their dream of earning online. However, this is not something new. People have been falling for network marketing, pyramid schemes, and affiliate marketing scams since before the start of the net.
Here are five of the simple ways to make money online:
Not really into designing? Maybe writing is more your thing. If so, you should start a blog. It is easier than ever. In fact, the hardest part is deciding which beautiful template you want to use. The wonderful thing about blogging is that you can write about absolutely anything. Anything that people would be interested in reading. After some time, your blog will attract an audience and similar users that share the same interests as you. Once your blog starts to take off, that will be the perfect time to collaborate with your favorite blogging pal! Guest writing for each other is a great way for both of you to widen your audiences. You will start to rake in some cash when you have established yourself as an online influencer.
WRITING AND SELLING OF EBOOKS
If blogging piqued your interest, then you just might have a passion for writing; creative writing. You should consider writing and selling an eBook. Whatever your choice of topic may be, use your eBook as a tool to tell your story, share your tips or words of wisdom. You could also extend your blog into an awesome eBook; there is a guarantee your fans might be excited. Thanks to the internet, you can skip those nerve-wracking pitch meetings with intimidating publishing houses. There are arrays of amazing writing templates that you can check out for online to make perfect eBooks. This will in the long run allow you to make cash depending on how much effort you put into it.
This involves having your own site and sending your traffic to someone else’s site to buy their products or services. For each sale initiated by a link from your website, you earn a percentage which is known as an affiliate commission.
Affiliate marketing can be done on a part-time basis, and many have become so successful that they have made it their full-time job. Equally exciting, you can get in the game in just a few hours. Your success as an affiliate marketer is based on the amount of time and effort you devote towards this job.
SELL READY-MADE WEBSITES
If you would rather sit aside and quietly built quality websites, why not turn your passion into a vocation.
It is certainly a decent financial proposition as hundreds of new businesses coming online every day. With fantastic and user-friendly software like Kompozer available free, it certainly takes the cost and pain out of website design.
Or, you could take advantage of open source content management systems like WordPress to quickly and easily build professional looking websites. Of course you have to market this website in order to rake in money.
FLIP WEBSITES AND DOMAINS
There is an element of the proven strategy in the equity market: identify/acquire undervalued, but good domains and resell later with a neat profit. It may not necessarily have to be that buy-low sell-high tactic.
You may choose to create your own website or blog, and spend some time working on it until market valuation suggests it is time to let go for some loose change.
People need to see the website is at some steady state (ideally it should be working optimally) before they want to think of parting money acquiring the said website. This is a huge business, as there are hundreds of such sales reported each day at sites like Flippa.
