Hopefully this article will give you some ideas on how to start your online journey on the right track from day one!
What’s the key ?
If you are really serious about making money online and seeking some easy ways to do so, then stop seeking “money”. Instead, seek the problems around you.
Yes, you read that right, if you can solve the real problems that people or companies have, then you don’t have to be worried about money. It’ll inevitably come as a natural byproduct of your efforts!
I know you’re probably wondering “great but how do I start” or “what do I do” right? If so, read on my friend and all will be revealed!
Every person has a passion or expertise in some area of life. Say, for example, you love soccer, there’s a lot of people around the world who love soccer too. Let’s take a look at what kind of problems soccer lovers may face that you can solve for them…
One problem is that they may need plenty of information about their favorite soccer team or match timings, listing, scores, etc.
However, with the busy schedules most of us share these days, they may not have the time to search up all this information on the various platforms.
This is exactly where you come in, you will be the person who collects this information, combines it and presents it all together through your blog, youtube channel or social media. See how easy that was?
Now it’s your turn. Pick your perfect niche, but make sure that it’s something you would really love to spend your time on (without it ever bothering you). Otherwise, you will quit after a few days, trust me!
I think the example above explains the idea of solving problems more clearly. So, make sure your main motive is to help people, provide information, and solve real problems. That’s exactly the key point to succeed online.
5 Easy Ways to Make Money Online
Now that the main premise has been clarified, let’s discuss some easy ways to make money online. You can choose from this list or get creative and apply these concepts to something you already have expertise in.
1. Freelance writing:
Freelance writing is one of the best ways that you could use to earn a full-time income from your home. You don’t need anything to start such a service. Just a computer and internet connection is enough. Some do it even using just their phone!
According to statista, many freelance writers make a 6 figure income per year. Even if you are currently writing for someone, you could write for yourself too. So, if writing is a passion of yours then there’s plenty of ways available to increase your income, while living out your passion!
Blogging, copywriting, freelance writing are all opportunities to grow your income through your writing skills. Accordingly, if you’re a skillful writer, then you have a great chance to make a 6 figure income yearly by completely working from home.
2. Social Media Management
Here’s another awesome way that you can make a few thousands bucks per month. This time round you’ll be managing social media for companies. It’s a really easy job that anyone can do, especially those who are already familiar with using social media. The majority of companies around the world hire social media agencies to manage their social media accounts and handle their social ad campaigns.
I think you’re probably familiar with using personal social media profiles, such as instagram, facebook, twitter, etc.
However, for clients’ accounts, handling them will be slightly different to handling your personal accounts. Which is why, you’ll have to learn a few tricks like photo editing (canva is more than enough for this purpose), following social media trends, understanding viral topics, etc.
You’ll also need to wrap your mind around how to use this information to your advantage, and keep a grasp on what’s going on in the market. If you figure out these things, then social media management will be the perfect niche for you to start making money online like a breeze.
3. YouTube Marketing
YouTube is the 2nd largest search engine in the world. There are billions of people spending their time on youtube. Obviously, the greater the number of people visiting a platform the greater your opportunity to make bank.
YouTube is a huge platform that will allow you to start making money instantly (well, almost). There are several ways in which you can monetize your channel.
The number 1 monetization option is obviously adsense. You know the ads that play before, after and during the videos you watch on YouTube? The video creator gets a share from these ads’ revenues from adsense.
There are also plenty of other ways to monetize your channel such as creating product reviews, selling your own products (merchandize), teaching/training, becoming an online influencer, or running a travel vlog, to name a few.
So, whatever you have the expertise in, there is a way to monetize it on YouTube.
Remember, as I said earlier, help people and provide them with valuable information and/or solve real problems. Then the money will come, almost effortlessly.
4. Lead Generation
Lead generation is a very interesting way to make money by using the internet. There are plenty of industries that pay people to generate leads for them. The question is, do you have an idea how to generate leads?
You’ll be surprised at how simple it is to do. Say for example, you have an immigration law firm as a client, you create a website as “immigration lawyer in Orange County”. You then rank the website on top of the google.
Once you’ve ranked, all you need to do is add a contact page on the website. That way, when the local people search and get the website at the top of their search results they will submit their email to get an appointment. Every person that submits their email is one lead. So, now contact your client and start selling your leads to them.
See how easy that was? And you needn’t worry about knowing any code, with the new gutenberg for wordpress (block builder) building a website is literally drag and drop!
5. Affiliate Marketing
Affiliate marketing is one of the best ways to make passive money in the world. In this form of online business you don’t need any products or any investment at all.
If you have the ability to produce informative content that actually helps people, you’re good to go! Using the informative content produced, you recommend and convince people of the effectiveness of this product and why they need to invest in it.
With time you’ll be seen as providing trusted information and adding value to the people’s lives. In turn your name/brand will gain popularity and grow in the industry.
The best thing about affiliate marketing is that you can start doing it today! All you need is a computer and an internet connection, even just a phone with 3G will do the job!
