But it doesn’t work like that, if you want to make money online – you will need to get some work done, use your skills, be smart, and it’s absolutely possible, you can learn how to do that.
There are many different options available, I will share 10 simple ways how you can start earning money today, using only the laptop and the internet.
1. BETA TESTING
BETA TESTING – many big companies that are launching new service or web-site or app, want to make sure that it’s good and working properly, before they make an official release. They want to test their web-site or app with real people, normal users like you and me, get honest feedback and they are ready to pay for it, it’s called beta-testing. Most of the times it doesn’t require technical skills, all you need to do is to test the product as a real end-user. There are web-sites where you can be a beta-tester for these companies, here are some of them: usertesting.com, trymyui.com, userlytics.com, respondent.io
TUTORING with chegg.com – probably every College student has some subjects that he or she is good at, and there are also subjects that are more difficult to learn, and we need some additional help with them, for me it was chemistry for example. That’s why tutoring will always be in demand. If you are good at mathematics, or history or languages, you can help other students to learn these subjects. And this is something you can do from home. For example you can use the website Chegg.com where you can become a tutor and earn 20 or more dollars per hour. This website offers Hundreds of subjects – college and high school level, you can choose which subject you are good at and which student level you prefer – high school or college, or even professionals. Another good website is takelessons.com, they have over 2 million people using their platform each month, as you see the demand is very big. And you don’t need to be limited to only one or two platforms, you can also use craigslist and all possible recourses to find students, and you can tutor online using skype or zoom.
3. TRANSCRIBING VIDEO or AUDIO
TRANSCRIBING VIDEO or AUDIO – another great option to earn money online. If your typing speed is quite good, you can earn around 15 dollars per hour for transcribing video or audio files into text. This is often used in such industries as Media, Education, Marketing, Legal, people need to transcribe conferences, seminars, webinars, interviews, business meetings and phone calls et cetera. There are also youtubers and podcasters who often need to transcribe their material into text, but they don’t have time for that, so they hire other people to do this kind of work. There is a web-site called REV.com where you can register as a freelancer and start getting jobs. There are also platforms like Fiverr or Upwork where you can find job assessments for transcribing video or audio into text.
4. SELL YOUR EXPERTISE
SELL YOUR EXPERTISE with clarity.fm – if you have knowledge and experience in some area – you can register on the platform called Clarity.fm and earn money by giving advises or consultations to people who need it. Many people look for a good professional advise or they need a consultation in a specific area, and they are willing to pay for it. Yes, you need to have a certain knowledge, but if you have that, you can create your profile at clarity dot com and start making money. This is how it works – people are browsing the platform in search of a good specialist, they come across your profile and they request a call with you. The charge is per minute of the call. The more experience you have, the more you can charge. You can literally work from your bed, speaking with people over the phone and giving them advises.
5. AFFILIATE MARKETING
AFFILIATE MARKETING is also a good way to make money online. This is how it works – you get the affiliate link from the web-site, you promote the product or service, and every time anyone purchases that product using your reference – you get the affiliate commission.
One of the great web-sites for that is Clickbank.com where you can find many good products you can promote, many of them are digital, like ebooks and courses, and there are also some physical products like diet supplements.
Another great web-site is Booking.com where people book hotels and apartments when they travel. You can become an affiliate and earn up to 40 % of the commission on bookings made through your affiliate link. There is also an option to earn money by referring properties to Booking dotcom.
Amazon also has an affiliate program. There are millions of goods available, you can promote anything you want and earn money.
Many people think you can do this only if you have a youtube channel or instagram account with many followers. But there is also another way to make money with affiliate marketing. There are tones of forums on the internet where people ask for advises about different products, like «please advise a good course on pregnancy and parenting» or «what is the best treadmill for home, which is not too loud, which I can use for walking and running» – and you can participate in those discussions, give people good answers, also providing the link to the product, which is your affiliate link.
6. YOUTUBE CHANNEL
YOUTUBE CHANNEL – is a great way of making money online. It doesn’t require any investments, you can start with 0 money and make videos using only your cell phone. The main thing here is to create interesting and valuable content which people will enjoy watching. You can ask your friends to review your channel and give you honest feedback how you can improve. And that’s probably the easiest way to get first subscribers and views. Once you reach 1000 subscribers and 4000 watch hours within the last 12 months – you will be able to monetize your videos. The great thing about Youtube is that you can also use Affiliate marketing and paid sponsorships to increase your earnings. It can also be a good source of passive income, you can earn money even on your old videos as long as people continue to watch them.
