If you’ve put the words “making money online easily” or any similar term in any search engine you will relate to what I am about to say. The internet today is jam packed with get rich quick schemes. When making money online first started appearing on the web it was a movement led by a few honest people.
Unfortunately as with anything, once it started trending, more and more not-so-honest people began to ride the wave. With time we started seeing an increase in fraudsters and ripoffs filling the web. A bunch of fake “gurus’ with the sole intention of stealing your hard earned cash through giving you false hopes and dreams of abundant wealth. To succeed they first had to start by making it seem impossible to get ahead without their help. You had to fall under the impression that the cut-throat competition would eliminate any chance of your success. Otherwise, why on earth would you be willing to spend 1000s of dollars for their mentorship and help?
Well, not here, not today my friend! Making money online easily and on a low budget has never been simpler than it is today. Before you begin thinking that I am selling you B.S. think about the words in the lines you just read. Now think about this, how many people do you know of that bankrupt themselves buying programs with nothing to show for it?
How many so called make money online gurus got shut down by the FTC in the past 3 years alone? The quote “There is no smoke without a fire” come to mind here.
Why Making Money Online Easily Is Not A Myth?
Despite what has been deliberately hammered into your head, there are several ways to make an honest living online. In fact it is not as challenging as it looks at first glance. There are over 4.57 billion people online today, according to statista.com. To look at it from another perspective that is a 4 with nine digits behind it (4,570,000,000). Of which close to 2 billion buy online, according to optinmonster.com
If each spent over $1000 annually online on average in the top 10 countries alone, according to optinmonster.com… That is at least $2 Trillion spent per year online. These are just simple figures to give you perspective on the potential we are dealing with here! Earning an honest living online is not that challenging to make happen. In fact making money online easily through a web based business costs close to nothing to startup.
With a market that has shown continued and consistent growth over the past decade it’s a no brainer. The question is do legitimate ways to make money online still exist today? The answer is yes and we are about to dive right into that in the next section of this article. But first let’s compare the online option versus the traditional, physical business model
Making Money Online Easily VS. Brick & Mortar Businesses?
I know it can be intimidating at first, the idea might even make your stomach turn with fear. The thought of starting your first business can be scary. I know with my first business, that’s how I felt. In fact I turned down multiple offers to partner in startups just because I was scared. Thoughts like “what if I fail?” and “What if I go broke?” literally haunted me for years. So it’s ok if you have your reasons and fears.
But you are here, which means you are at least ready to consider the idea. So let’s think this through together for a moment… To start up a physical brick and mortar business you can expect to pay a large sum of money upfront before you can open your doors for business.
If you can afford to put that upfront, and are ready to wait on having it paid back that’s fine. Starting it up might be the path most appropriate for you, and I’ll be covering that in
other articles to help you achieve success on that front. On the other hand, if you can’t afford it, you have most certainly come to the right place. First of all you will not need a fancy set up, whatever device you are using to read this article from will do, even if it’s a low end smart phone.
And since you are able to read this article, I think it’s safe to assume you have an internet connection. It doesn’t matter how stable your internet connection is either… Together, we’ll figure out something that works according to your circumstance. I think it’s beginning to crystalize clearly in your mind now… that making money online easily is very possible and without stretching yourself financially.
I have to be honest with you though…
If you think that you will start today and begin making money tomorrow, that won’t happen. Even with the expensive make money online programs, they will never guarantee income.
Pay attention and you will often hear them saying when showing income proof, something along the lines of “these results are not typical”. The sneakier ones will write it down under the photos and the videos with an * so you just skim over it. It doesn’t mean that everyone who does that is a scammer, but as I said earlier… Individuals with sinister intentions will always ride the wave, though.
Needless to mention, income guarantees are illegal. So if you don’t hear or see a statement about the proof not being typical, walk away immediately. Now that we’ve gotten this out of the way, I think it’s time we look at how you can start making money online easily and legally.
4 Approaches To Making Money Online Easily
I’m going to break this section down into 4 main parts to help you navigate the information with greater ease.
Making Money Online Easily With Video Blogging (Vlogging)
The first way I’m going to discuss here is making money online easily using videos as the primary source of income. There are many free online video hosting services that you can use to make money. Companies such as vimeo, Youtube, tiktok, etc. all allow you to post videos on their platform. But how do we use these to make money?
I would suggest you start with Youtube, simply because at the time of writing this article youtube has over 1.9 billion viewers monthly. To start making money from Youtube at the time of writing this article… you need to have 1,000 subscribers to your channel and 4,000 watch hours completed over the past 12 months to get ads revenue. How it works is Youtube sells ads on the platform and pay you 68% of their revenue from ads played on your videos.
This is just one way to make money and at the time of writing this article Youtube is the only video platform sharing ad revenue as far as I know. Youtube offers many other ways to make money with them that you can see on their terms page right here.
I’ve created another article specifically relating to the kind of content you can create to attract viewers that you can see here. There are other less obvious ways to make money from such videos and it doesn’t restrict you to youtube. Neither does it require you having 1,000 subscribers and 4,000 watch hours to begin making money. To use these methods of making money there are certain things you need to do first.
You need to define the audience you will be creating content for.
This is called picking a “niche”. A niche is a topic that a some people are interested in. You need to pick one that you’re interested in so that you can create valuable content about it. This is the first step to what comes next.
You probably think this is where I tell you affiliate marketing is the way to go. Granted affiliate marketing is ONE OF THE WAYS to make money, but it’s not the only way. Since we mentioned it, let’s get it out of the way first…
Affiliate marketing is where you recommend a product to people. If they buy it, you earn anywhere between 1-100% of the product value in commissions. If you are wondering how and why would someone pay you 100% I’d suggest you read my article about affiliate marketing. Basically you just create a video about a topic you are interested in and suggest the product you are an affiliate for and when they buy you make money. Obviously this doesn’t need so many views. It is possible that if your content generates enough trust in your first viewer they may buy your product.
It is probably the easiest and quickest way to make money in all of the video options. The other ways are by getting someone to sponsor your channel, Patreon donations, and selling your own merchandize. These will require some time though to begin earning you a worthwhile income, if I am being honest. Sponsors would pay you to get exposure by using the trust you have created amongst your viewers. For example, if you create videos about make up you could get a lipstick brand to sponsor you. If you are dealing with DYI car repairs, a toolkit brand or even a famous car repair brand could sponsor you.
Let’s not get ahead of ourselves though…
This is not going to be happening right away unless you have a contact in there who are willing to help you out as you start. Donations are obvious so I don’t think we need to get into too much detail about it. Once you have a fan base merchandize becomes a very lucrative option. You create t-shirts and other items that people can buy. All you have to do is sign up with a drop-shipping company and they will handle all the logistics and in many cases the payments on your behalf.
You see video is not such a bad idea and this is barely scratching the surface of everything that you can do with video. All you need to start is a camera phone with an internet connection and you’re set! Ok but what if you don’t have access to a camera phone, or the internet connection you have won’t support uploading videos for any reason? Or maybe you are just shy to appear on screen…
I got your back, let’s look at something which is not so data heavy and doesn’t require a camera or elaborate equipment.
Making Money Online Easily Through Blogging
Alright so what is blogging? Blogging is basically what I am doing right now. It’s very similar to what was in the video blogging section except
this time our content is through words and not video. All the monetization options I mentioned on video are valid here. With affiliate marketing it would be affiliate links embedded in the text.
There is a very basic cost though here, because to blog you need to have a domain (around $12 annually) and you can get some on offer at various times of the year. You would also need a hosting service which ranges from $1 to $5 per month on average with some exceptions here and there. If you can’t afford that it’s not a problem, you can start for totally free.
Guest blogging is one way, where people allow you to write content on their blogs for a fee and with time some would allow you to put your own
affiliate links. Another way is Quora and Yahoo answers. You could answer questions and refer people to your recommended products. But only, once you’ve established a connection with them.
Another gold mine is Facebook, create a page and blog on there. It’s not ideal, but it will initially get your message across and acquire you some followers. It would also help you start making some money until you can afford your own domain. Once you have your own page set up, this is where another method of earning becomes available to you.
Advertising banners, at first you can use google ads and become part of their “global display network” (GDN). You can earn between $1 and $3 for every 1,000 views of a page for each ad on it. With 3 ads on the page, believe me it ads up.
Making Money Online Easily By Selling Services
Ok so what if you don’t want to bother with blogging or vlogging? What if you have a certain skillset that you can help people or companies with? For example, maybe you are a copywriter, business consultant, graphic designer, etc by profession? Don’t worry, you can also be making money online easily in no time. There are multiple websites online that you can work with.
To name them all would be way beyond the scope of this article but I’ll name you a few to get you started. Websites like fiverr.com, freelancer.com, copywriter.com, peopleperhour.com, upwork.com, etc. are perfect places for just that. If you do a quick search on you preferred search engine you can find many similar websites where you get paid for offering services to clients.
But what if you don’t have a sellable business skill? There’s something for you as well. There is the obvious option if you own a car you could work for UBER, Lyft, etc.
Or you could earn between $10 to $50 for testing websites and mobile apps. There are plenty of websites online that act as a marketplace for such services.
Finally you can even get on one of the grocery delivery apps and deliver groceries to shop on behalf of people. Obviously this section is not intended to be an all encompassing list.
It’s meant to show you that whatever you can or can’t do there are millions of opportunities online for you to make money easily. If you’d like to learn more about freelancing jobs online you can check out this article.
Making Money Online Easily, Helping Offline Businesses
This is where it gets really interesting…
How many business in your city don’t have an online presence? Think in terms of car detailing shops, jewelry stores, barber shops, beauty salons, mom-and-pop’s diner across the street etc. These businesses are an under-tapped gold mine. I say this because the possibilities are endless.
Especially if it’s a place you frequent and know the owner… That owner can be your barber, the barista in the stall you buy coffee from every morning etc.
You can talk to them and offer them to give them access to the potential customers they are not targeting who hang out online. Alright, but what can you offer them?
If they don’t have a website and would like to have one… Offer to buy the domain, hosting, etc. and offer to build a website for them. You might be thinking, “but I don’t know how to build websites”. My friend, remember the websites I mentioned in the last section? Hire someone on there to do it. Put a profit margin on all these and you’re set.
Plus such services are not a one time thing, hire someone on a retainer (monthly basis) from these websites to offer support to the websites you sell. You then go and charge more than you are paying for that service. All of a sudden, you have got a monthly passive income that grows as you acquire more clients.
Ok but what if they don’t want a website or already have one?
Are they present on social media? If not build and manage their social media pages for them for a fee. For some reason they don’t want any of that, what now?
That’s a good thing, because now you can bring in the big guns! Everyone wants more sales and you can help with that. Offer them to bring them in more clients for a commission. Kind of like affiliate marketing except this time you are going to tweak it slightly. You want to attract people to buy through you, so here’s what you do. You agree on a “promo-code”, nothing too fancy could be just your name with the year behind it, like TAREQ_2020.
You will agree with the business on the highest percentage that you can secure, for the purpose of demonstration let’s assume you secured 15%. Once you’ve agreed on the percentage, you go on to tell the business that you will pass on 10% of that commission to your clients. The remaining 5% the company will pay you directly.
Once the client goes in and mentions your promo-code they will get an instant 10% discount on their purchase. The remaining 5% you can agree to go and collect it on a weekly or
monthly basis. OK! so you’ve set up everything, how do you get the said clients?
There are many ways to get them the choice is yours really and you can get creative.
One way is to join facebook groups of your community, neighborhood, town, or city and make a post saying that you have secured a discount for your friends… at a great coffee spot, restaurant, barber shop, beauty parlor, spa, jeweler, etc.
The post will ask people to send you a private message to get the code since you don’t want to waste the limited number you have on a public post. Once the people send you a private message you then give them the agreed code.
This doesn’t only help you build a direct relationship with the person using the code. It also helps you find out if they bought and if getting the discount was easy. This way you can keep track of how many people using your code to ensure the business doesn’t tell you no one used your code. Another way to do this is through pay-per-call ads. I will not be discussing this here as this article has gotten insanely long already. I will, however, be writing articles specifically about these ads in the near future.
So as you can see there are plenty of ways to start making money online easily… You just need to start taking action and doing it.
My friend you can read 100,000 articles on how to make money online, spend a 1,000 hours watching videos… but if you don’t start doing something and applying what you learn you will not make a single cent. Seriously what is the point of knowledge if you don’t apply it?
Make a commitment to yourself that before this week is over, you would have started taking action, and applying what you’ve been learning so far. Listen, if you can relate to the past few lines, was right were you are not so very long ago. Spent tens of thousands on courses and that was it, learning. Something was holding me back, maybe it was fear, maybe a feeling of not being ready yet.
The thing is the fear will never be gone, but confidence eventually will begin to grow and overcome the feeling of fear. As for not being ready, you never will feel ready, if that’s
what you are waiting for to start. Take a deep breath and take a leap of faith in yourself my friend!
More often than none people find that they were ready but self doubt was the only thing holding them back from achieving their true full potential.
As always if you have any questions or thoughts, I would love to hear them, so drop them in the comments below and let’s connect.
