1. Starting Your Own Blog or E-commerce Website
The first way is one of the most popular ways; starting a blog/e-commerce website.
Consider having a permanent presence on online by putting up your own website. Use it to share hobbies, thoughts, and passions with others and use your page to make real connections with people. The mechanics are straightforward, and you’ll be in a position to profit from online advertising (e.g. Google Adwords), affiliate marketing and subscriber-based lists to produce a steady stream of income. There are many ways to make money with a blog.
This is one of the fastest ways to get your own piece of “virtual real estate”.
2. Affiliate Marketing
Even if you don’t have your own products or services to sell,affiliate marketing gives you a chance to earn strong commissions through a series of one-time sales. Online merchants provide you with an affiliate website (or a simple affiliate tracking link) and marketing support – all you have to do is promote the company with your link via social media, search engines or perhaps ideally your own website (see above).
The great thing about affiliate marketing is you don’t have to create your own products, you don’t have to provide any customer support, and you don’t have to create your own marketing materials.
All you have to do is pick a profitable market, promote the products as an affiliate and earn a commission anytime a sale is made.Affiliate marketing is one of the fastest and easiest ways to make money online.
If you have specific writing/journalism skills or are adept in various IT/software domains, freelancing may prove to be a lucrative source of secondary income. Increasingly, companies are implementing a content marketing strategy and turning to outside sources for specific assignments, and if you can prove your worth there will be more work available. Even simple skills like data entry may be to your liking, provide you can offer at least 5-10 hours weekly.
All you need is a computer with an Internet connection and the desire to build a respectable clientele. Chances are that these opportunities will allow you to gain valuable experience and skills that will prove valuable in your existing business and professional career.
If you’re already writing ebooks in a particular niche market (see above) then why not make your services available for other companies; as you already have the expertise to take on the niche writing assignments.
