Make a Five-Er
Don’t worry you can make much more than that on Fiverr—one of the best online money-making medium on our list. Without wasting any time, let’s get straight to business. This is how Fiverr works. You sign up with the website or online marketplace offering services and tasks. Your offer your ‘gig’ or your service for $5. But, you can earn more add-ons and upgrades. In fact, some people have made thousands of dollars on this site and there’s no reason you can’t do the same.
Sell Your Crafts Online
Are you artistic? Can you paint, crotchet, work with clay, make crafts, or have something else you can sell? If yes, then stopping wasting your time and get down to business. Here the business is putting your ability to produce arts and crafts to good use and making money out of it. The easiest and quickest way to do that is selling your masterpiece online. Following are two of the best places to do that:
An online marketplace where you’ll find crafters from all over the world, Etsy has a low sign-up fee and a huge network that you can leverage to sell your work online. If your work is any good, you’re bound to find buyers for your arts and crafts. Additionally, you connect with other people on the site to learn new skills and make yourself more marketable online.
You probably already know about this platform. Shopify isn’t just for people selling arts and crafts. It is for everyone. With Shopify, you can start your own online store. The site gives you two options: build a store into your existing site or build a website and online store from scratch. This platform is simple to use and support is available 24/7, making it the ideal way to make money online.
Blogging is a great way to make money online but make sure your blogs are unique, readable and engaging. Writing blogs that have been done to death or rephrasing someone else’s content and presenting it as yours would do you no good because Google notices this and when it does, you ain’t gonna get much attention! Generally, bloggers make money through advertisements and partnerships. But, this will help you to make money only if people see your content online and that is only going to happen if you create unique, readable and engaging blogs.
Start Teaching Online
Is there’s something you’re extremely knowledgeable about? Do you have tons of experience in a particular field? Have you been in the teaching profession for years? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you should start teaching online. Today, there is a marketplace for everything including a course marketplace. Create an account with a course marketplace and offer to teach a course—a course that you can teach using your knowledge or years of experience. A popular course marketplace where you can offer to teach online is Udemy.
Have a hobby? Have good knowledge of something? Can talk confidently in front a camera? Are a charmer? If yes, then YouTube is a great place for you to make some money. Today, you’ll find many rich people who got rich just because of YouTube. Should I throw in some names? I probably should. Linsey Sterling, Tyler Oakley, Smosh, Lily Singh, PewDieDie—these are all people or Youtubers who’ve made more than $5 million just by YouTubing. Isn’t that insane? Insane or not, this should encourage you to start YouTubing and become the next millionaire YouTuber.
Become a Virtual Assistant
It may not be the one of the most awe-inspiring jobs in the world, but you can earn a decent amount of money by becoming a virtual assistant and the best thing—unlike a real world-assistant, you don’t need to dress up and look your best for the job. The job responsibilities of a virtual assistant include researching blog posts, managing inboxes, designing graphics for blogs, and scheduling tweets. So, if you’re ready and able to do all that, then get ready to earn some money online.
