Make Money Through Online Businesses


1. Become A Social Media Consultant

Large corporations and business firms can easily hire a full-time staff coordinator or corresponding agency to run their Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram accounts, but smaller businesses frequently have to manage their own marketing for social media. But, because they have a great number of other responsibilities, many times business owners are too overwhelmed or busy to spend a lot of time on developing their social media approach.

As a consultant for social media, you can effectively steer them in the right direction concerning ideal tactics, implementing schedules, and posting content regarding their target audience. Therefore, as their business grows, so will yours. Check out our new Instagram Tools guide to see how you can increase your clients audience.

To help manage the various social accounts that you own or manage for clients, we recommend you use Sendible. Why not give their platform a try with this free 30 day trial.

2. Professional Freelancer

Freelancing via the Internet is a great way for experts in their individual trades to help a variety of clients overall. Several freelancing and project-based websites let businesses that need extra help to list their projects. Small businesses and freelancers offer proposals, ideas, or bids, whereby the buyers can easily choose what they want and need. Sites like Elance or Upwork cover just about everything including writing content, creating graphic design, programming, and data entry.

3. Become An Expert Blogger

If you’re passionate about writing and feel strongly about certain subjects, type your way to riches by creating your own blog. Launching your own blog doesn’t require a great deal of technical or computer skills. It is important, however, that you do know what you’re talking about relative to the subject you’re writing on. Over time, you’ll start to develop an audience since people will trust your expertise and knowledge.

By building an extensive following, this will allow you to gain profit by attracting key advertisers or get commissions by promoting other brand products (think affiliate). Blogging is big business; just ask Heather from Dooce.com. She’s a mom that blogs daily about her children and pets and has successfully turned her daily adventures into a very lucrative business by simply making money blogging. One of my favourite ways to make money from a blog is by creating your own online course.

4. Creating WordPress Themes

As more people want to establish their presence online no matter what their reason, the demand for WordPress themes and website templates continue to rise. Do you have a talent for designing websites and html coding? If so, you can make big bucks from creating attractive website themes. Create them and then sell them on marketplaces online like ThemeForest and TemplateMonster to generate a nice passive income for yourself depending on just how talented you are.

5. Work with Advertisers

If you’re a website or blog owner, you can sell a portion of your page space to advertisers and earn money passively each time the ads are clicked on by your target audience or visitors to your website. While the actual placing of the ads is completely free, the earning capacity of cost-per-click (CPC) advertising is based on the level of traffic to your site and the cost per click and click-through rate, or CTR. The most popular way to earn money today through advertising clicks is through Google AdSense or similar advertisers.

Other ways of effective online advertising include RSS feeds and direct banners.

6. Get Paid to Write

If managing a blog seems a bit overwhelming but you still desire to indulge your writing passion, you can write for other sites or blogs like PayPerPost, Textbroker, or Helium. Also, writing an interesting e-book may also be an option for you as well. E-books do not have any printing or shipping fees, which makes them a viable investment. If you’re someone who possesses strong language skills, you could potentially become an expert copy editor that webmasters will gladly pay to read and edit articles and also correct any overlooked grammatical errors concerning web copy.

7. Perform Research

Can’t design, write, or code websites? No problem. Don’t let that stop you from earning money on the Internet. If you have some extra time a couple of hours a week, you can perform numerous research tasks on behalf of other people or companies who can’t spend the time to do it themselves. Many organizations and various businesses hire people to research certain subjects or to help them with online investigations everyday. You could be one of them.

8. Online Marketing

Once a site or blog is created and optimized for SEO (search engine optimization) purposes, the search engine marketing (SEM) begins. The potential for earning income in this area is literally through the roof if you know what you’re doing. An expert in SEO management is responsible for successfully marketing a website and can choose to promote it in a variety of ways.

Some of these promotion techniques may include article marketing, social bookmarking, forum posting, writing press releases, submitting your site to a number of search engines and directories, and blog posting; just to name a few. Most businesses don’t pay their own staff to perform these tasks and choose to outsource all their SEO and SEM tasks instead.

9. Sell Photos

Do you love taking pictures and have a general passion for photography? If so, you could make a very nice living for yourself online selling your photos. There are countless people who are willing to pay you good money for your collection of unique images you have to offer. Today more than ever it’s super easy to submit your pics to the masses, which can provide you with a very convenient approach to creating a solid source of additional income. Several stock photo sites like Shutterstock and Fotolia offer enticing incentives for individuals to earn money passively from the photos they randomly shoot in their spare time.

10. Teach Online and Conduct Webinars

Tutors are in high demand whether it’s online or offline. Therefore, if you’ve got a brain and like helping others use theirs, become an e-teacher to earn an extra income in your spare time. The only thing you require is to be proficient in your area of expertise and be willing to give up a few hours each week to help someone else. Sites like Tutor.com and TutorVista are places you can sign up with and build a good reputation over time as a coach. If you’re really good, you can conduct lectures, seminars, or webinars that are transmitted online. University and college students are always willing to pay money to gain access into highly-respected online webinars.


11. Become A Crypto Trader

Crypto currency trading is the next big thing in finance. The value of crypto has shot up in recent months with Bitcoin reaching over $18k for just one Bitcoin! You too can get a piece of the action by purchasing crypto currency from one of the bitcoin / crypto exchanges and waiting for the value to increase. I would recommend you do your research before you dive in, and don’t forget to only invest what you can afford to lose.

12. Become A Web Developer

A web developer is someone who can build a website from the ground up, start to finish. In order to be able to do this, you will need to learn how to code. Web developers can earn decent money, but to become good at it, you really need to know your stuff, and this can take time.

The great thing about being a web developer is that you can work from pretty much anywhere in the world, if you work for yourself that is. You’re not tied down to one location.

13. Become A Vlogger / YouTuber

People are changing the way they search and consume content on the internet. No longer is it just text rich articles that people read from finding them on a Google search. Internet users are now getting more engaged with rich media such as videos. Because they are more engaged, Vloggers are able to leverage this to their financial gain. Vloggers can make millions of dollars a year from their audiences.

Videos are becoming insanely more popular, especially for users under 25s. There’s just so many effective video content platforms on offer such as Instagram and Snapchat Stories, Facebook Live video and Youtube. With these outlets you have the chance to push your content out to hundreds of millions of people worldwide.

If you’ve always fancied yourself as an internet celebrity and like the idea of being in front of the camera, then this is the time for action.

There is so much money to be made from starting a vlog or a Youtube channel. You can potentially earn thousands of dollars a month reviewing and promoting products for companies and brands. The more traffic you build to your YouTube channel, the more ad revenue you’ll receive from YouTube and potentially, offers from third party brands.

Another great thing about starting a vlog is the relatively low set up costs. You don’t really need to go and get yourself an expensive camera. You can literally do it on your iphone or basic SLR camera. Get more tips on buying a vlogging cameras with my Vlogging Camera guide.

14. Become a Podcaster & Start a Podcast

Check out my in-depth guide on how to start a podcast. It’s a really easy way to create content that is easy for your audience to consume. Its portable, its cost-effective and can engage better with your audience than say text written content.

Once you’ve built trust with your audience through your podcasts, you can then potentially monetize your content with sponsorships and offers. Earning the trust of your listeners is vital, because if they don’t trust what you’re saying then why would they buy the things you promote?

15. Start An Amazon FBA Business

If you’re new to this online business concept, FBA stands for “fulfilment by Amazon.”

Amazon will list your products on their website and when a sale comes in, they will do all the hard work of preparing it to be sent out and delivering your product to the customer. Essentially you’re leveraging the powerful distribution network and customer base of Amazon.

Amazon warehouses, fulfils your orders, and also provides customer service to your clients, so you don’t have to.

Amazon allows you to act like a major corporation, but without the headaches of actually being one. All you have to do is find and develop profitable products to then send to Amazon to sell.


Conclusion

Overall, the Internet itself is overflowing with one money making opportunity after another. While making money online for most people isn’t their primary source of income, it can net a very solid supplement stream of incoming dollars each month. There are some online entrepreneurs, however, that are managing to mine gold due to all the effort, persistence, and time they’ve invested in order to make that dream come true. Can one of these online money making options work for you?

Put in the time and see where it leads to find out. There’s something there for everyone. Whether you want to get your hands dirty or just earn an income passively, there’s plenty there on my list of online business ideas. I hope I given you some inspiration to start something yourself! 

All the best!
