What’s inside this article?
If you are looking for ways to make money online, here are the safer places to begin:
1. Paid Survey Sites.
This is the first thing that comes to people’s minds when they try to google for ways to make money online. What is the reason? It’s simple and easy.
- You can complete the task on your bed, your couch, or any places you feel comfortable.
- You can do them at any time or when you are stuck in the traffic or waiting for your friends.
- Sometimes, the task is just like what we do online every day and it’s fun.
“How does this work?” I know you are going to ask next. Many international brands want to receive the real feedback from their target demographics to develop next-gen products or improve the current service, so they request the 3rd parties like survey sites to do the works for them.
All you need to do is to offer your honest feedback to get cash or points. Those paid survey sites give your feedback to international brands and get paid. Those international brands get real feedback. So, everyone wins.
You can make either cash or points by doing lots of your daily online activities such as online searches, paid surveys, watch videos, shopping, etc. After you reach the minimum payout threshold, you may redeem your points or cash by PayPal or e-giftcards.
Here are some survey sites that I’ve reviewed, you can try them to get your first bite of “Making money online from home”.
It’s time to turn something you are good at for an extra income resource. In recent years, the concept of “be a slash” got viral on social media by the millennial. They embrace the life of a mixed professional identity such as a lawyer/journalist, pianist/cook, or English teacher/graphic designer. Slashes are people who pursue multiple careers with not only one income resource but many.
I love this concept so much that I implemented in my career path. I currently work in an international manufacturing company as sales and have a part-time job as a graphic designer. Although this part-time job was requested by my previous employer, I believe it still counts for freelancing or being a slash. Not only it brings me another income resource, but it does sharpen my skills and forcing myself to step outside my comfort zone.
Here are the famous platforms where you could pursue a freelancing/slash life:
3. Create Your Own Courses
According to Global Industry Analysts, the online education market will grow from $107 billion in 2015 to $325 billion in 2025. I guess you can understand why I am talking about this now.
Once you gain much experience for one certain skill(after 10,000 hours), you could go further to create your own digital training courses that teach people who are also interested in the same skill. To create digital courses, you can either make a PDF file, tutorial videos, or slides to share with your students.
Here are some platforms that allow you to build online courses on topics of your choosing:
4. Multi-level Marketing(Direct Sales)
Yes, you didn’t hear me wrong. I know people do have different thoughts about multi-leveling marketing but we cannot deny that people do earn money from this business model and the compensation plan.
There are thousands of MLM programs in the industry, and it takes time to find out the legitimate ones to achieve your financial goal. Right? I guess this is the first question poped out from your head when you are about to start your MLM career. You just don’t know which one to invest time and effort in.
I am not associated with any of MLMs listed below, and they are just some examples if you do love the products and want to share with your family, friends, colleagues, or your neighbors. Only when you have huge enthusiasm for the products from a specific MLM, it gets easier to make money through multi-level marketing.
-Beauty and Cosmetics-
-Weight Loss Programs-
5. Affiliate Marketing
Affiliate marketing is my favorite, and it’s the best way to make money online with a long term success.
Doing affiliate doesn’t require you to do face-to-face selling and recruiting like MLMs, and you don’t need to worry that your family, friends or neighbors will avoid you ever since. You only need to build a website and create content constantly with a well-implemented SEO for organic traffic. Then, you will see the positive results if you keep repeating the process with patience.
Remember affiliate marketing is not a “make-money-quick” scheme. For those who only search for quick money, affiliate marketing is not the answer that suits your needs. If you are like me, shy & introvert & love to connect with people online, there is indeed a chance for you to make it work.
