Teaching and tutoring English as a second language is a great way to make money online, not to mention open some doors for you to travel the world if you'd like. While full ESL (English as a Second Language) accreditation is recommended, as long as you’re a native speaker and have the ability to teach, there are people in countries such as Hong Kong or the UAE who are willing to pay upwards of $25/hr for you to tutor them English via Skype. Check out Indeed, Learn4Good and Remote.co for remote english tutoring jobs or sign up on a specialized site like VerbalPlanet or Chegg Tutors.
When you're selling information, you aren't really in the business of selling information. You're in the business of transforming lives (doesn't matter what your niche is, the end result is to inspire your client to act on your advice, even if you give advice on landscaping) - and charging high prices is one way of making sure that a higher percentage of people will benefit from your advice and value it more.
That “urgent” email from a wealthy Nigerian Prince who claims to have a fortune with our names on it, to the blaring online video by the latest rambling internet marketer who swears we can get rich by using their system, to the late-night infomercial that beckons us to try a simple system that countless others have used to get rich, we’ve just about seen it all, haven’t we?
You can sell your book on a site like Gumroad (this is the site I sell mine on) or even self-publish your eBook on Amazon. To advertise your book, share it on your social media pages, ask bloggers and websites if you can guest post on their site and include a link there, include your book on your own blog, ask readers to write reviews, and more. The beauty of a book is you could continue to make sales for years to come!
You know those top-down cooking or craft videos you just can’t seem to get away from these days? There are people out there making a living from them. 78% of B2C companies depend on user-generated content, like those videos, for their marketing campaigns. You can sign up as a creator on a site like Darby Smart and potentially work with brands like Nordstrom, Mattel, and BarkBox. Or, use them to build your YouTube following and monetize through ads and views.
Still, much of the world is engaged in active-income work. They work so that they can earn. When they don’t work, they don’t earn. Yet, there’s almost zero chance that you’ll get rich or make any significant amount of money when you’re solely reliant on active income. Now, don’t get me wrong. It’s possible. People do it by slowly saving and investing over the course of 30 or 40 years, but we’re not talking about that here.
I do appreciate your hard knocks approach. Not convinced if there is any good in making everything as “easy!”. In regards to the comment above from Ryan about being positive: I think we all want it to be fun, cheery, easy, quick, etc. etc. But the reality is that the facts and knowledge, applied wisely, is much more useful than some cheery motivational speaker. Thanks for keeping it real, that is what is going to be what helps us achieve success in the end.

Active income requires your time and you can only produce as much money as your time allows. For example, a doctor or a lawyer who charge high per-hour or per-consultation fees and make exorbitant amounts of cash are stifled by the amount of time they have in a day. We all have the same 24 hours. Not one person on this earth gets more time than the next. It’s the greatest equalizer in life. When the time you work directly correlates to your income, it’s called active income.
As you start regularly putting out content, you’ll hopefully start to build a bit of an audience. But to start seeing real money from YouTube you need to market your videos elsewhere. Share your channel on Twitter and Facebook. Distribute videos anywhere else you can think of. Also, interact with comments and build a community around the videos you’re making so people will share it with their friends.
Why am I telling you all of this? The answer is pretty simple. I want you to get the understanding that making money online (at least in the initial stages), takes A LOT of STUDY and WORK! That's the unknown secret of Internet Marketing Gurus. Anyone can make a few hundred dollars. To be quite honest, you can make a few hundred dollars in your FIRST MONTH as a Freebie Trader. To be even MORE honest, it's much harder to profit $2,000+ each and every month, which is the reason I built this blog, and so many other people have their blogs on Internet Marketing – To save you the struggles that we had in getting going.
More than half a billion products are sold on Amazon every month, making it an incredible opportunity to make money online. But, like everything else that involves making money online, you have to do quite a bit of work to earn it. One option on Amazon is to find products that are already made and buy and sell them at a discount. For example, you could research generic products such as clocks, keychains and mugs to attach to your brand. For an incredible deep dive on how to make extra money with this strategy, check out how digital marketer Neil Patel recently did this as a public experiment right here on his blog.
Testing products can be a fun and fast way to make money online from home. When companies have new or improved products they will have testers finding any problems or ways of changing the product to match the needs of the customer. You can become a product tester and have products sent to your home before they are released to the general public. So you can get all the coolest products before your friends do and get paid for it!

The issues covered included "search engine optimisation" - making your site appear high up on search results - as well as online traffic generation and advice on "affiliate marketing".
“I always point people to the article ‘1,000 True Fans’ by Kevin Kelly. If you choose your thousand ideal customers or readers properly and find the single author blog that targets that audience, you never have to do any more marketing. You’re done. That is a lesson that very few product developers and marketers have learned, and it’s unfortunate.”
Do you have a voice that Simon Cowell would pay a compliment to? Are you a talented graphic designer that can take any concept and bring it to life? Are you an artist who can give Michelangelo a run for his money? If so, sites like Task Rabbit and Thumbtack are great platforms to sell your skills. These aren’t only limited to those with creative skills; you can sell editing services, research services, typesetting, and the list goes on.

My understanding is that you have to subscribe/pay for the business version of Word Press in order to use any of the monetizing functions. I think you should clearly state this in this article at the beginning. I think there is a degree of bait and switch here if people are just signing up for the free subscription and then finding out they have to pay for a subscription to make money. I am ok with that, it just needs to be stated up front everywhere.

the problem with “CashCrate” is that the amount of money that u get out of it is VERY slim.. and even to get that VERY slim portion of money you have to complete a lot of surveys and to cash-in on the money you earned u must make over $20, trust me. i tried it, it took me over 6-12 months to get the cash.. i used the site like if my life depended on it. it was very hard.


I’ve been blogging for three years and am consistently making $2,000+ per month. I work no more than 10 hours a month on my blog. While it took a while to start making consistent income (about a year of solid work), the income is now relatively passive. Blogging is a huge passion of mine and I encourage everyone who enjoys writing and wants to earn extra money to start a blog.
The audiobook industry is booming, yet only 5% of books ever get made into audio format. If you’ve got a background in acting, or if people have said you’ve got a voice made for the radio, you can make extra money recording audio versions of independent and popular books. Sites like ACX connect authors with audiobook performers. So, whether you’re an author looking for more ways to sell your book, or an actor/voice actor looking to make some extra income, you can sell your services online.
Sign up with sites like Rover.com or Wag! to walk dogs or care for pets and earn some extra cash. Sign on at your convenience and help out local pooches whose owners are stuck at work or out of town on business. If the apps don’t service your area, contact local grooming and boarding to let them know you are available for pet sitting or dog walking.
Now, here’s the answer: the fastest way to make money online and work from home is day trading. Period.

Whatever your choice, if you know what you’re doing and pick the best stock to trade, online trading can literally make you a fortune overnight!
There are a few different ways to make money online by filling out paid surveys. Depending on the paid survey you choose, you will get different rewards. Some of the paid surveys give you direct cash to your Paypal account. You can also get points for filling the surveys that you can redeem later for gift cards from your favourite shops such as Amazon, Boots, H&M, Ikea, iTunes, GAP, Dorothy Perkins and many others. Also, you can just enter in amazing raffles and win big prizes just for registering, the more surveys you complete, the higher chances you will have at winning! Are you interested in knowing the specific rewards you can get with each paid survey? Go to our review of rewards for paid surveys. (*link to reviews)
When was the last time you went to a new restaurant without looking it up online beforehand? Or bought a product that didn’t have at least a few 5-star reviews? It seems like more and more our world is run on reviews. And you can make money online by writing them. Get started by creating accounts on sites like Vindale research, Software Judge, FameBit, CrowdTap, Influence Central, and Modern Mom. However, before you run off and start writing, be sure to check the small print on each of these sites. Writing reviews isn’t a huge source of guaranteed income and you want to make sure that it’s worth your time before you get going.
I know the feeling Chaz. If there is one thing all successful Freebie Traders have in common, it’s that we all spent a bunch of time learning the system, lol. Hey, we all can do better at what we are currently doing and that’s the reason for what we will be doing. As long as we are all learning and improving, that’s what counts. Glad to have you on board.
So many people dream of writing a book, but never go through with it. Yet no matter what, I’m sure you have experience and value you could give through writing a book.

So, I put together a free master course for you to take that spreads out all of the work involved in starting a blog, into a series of action-packed lessons. My free course breaks the entire process of starting a blog down into an incredibly simple 7-day process for going from 0 to publishing (and promoting) your first blog post in just 1 week. I can't recommend it enough.
While Etsy is fantastic for handmade goods that you’ve already created, if you’ve got killer designs that would look good on phone cases, t-shirts, or even wall hangings, pillows, and duvets, you can sell them on Society6 without paying anything to start. Society6 lets artists upload their designs and create their own shops where they choose what products their designs can be used on. That means one design can be used to make a whole range of awesome products that are printed and shipped on demand whenever someone buys from you. With top creators making thousands every month just from selling their designs.
Pleases count me in Leslie. I’ve been working on freebie trading, but looking at everything else that comes my way and I’ve come to the same conclusions you have – it is possible to make big bucks but nobody out there can do it for you – no matter what they promise. I’ve grown to admire guys like Yaro, for example, because he and his partner give what they promise – detailed how to info, but never promise you won’t have to work at learning and building. Looking forward to the journey with you – thank you for the invitation.

If you're serious about making money online, start a blog. Blogging is one of the easiest and most sustainable income sources. As long as the blog is setup the right way, in the right niche, with the right content targeted at the right audience, and the offer is complementary to the content, you could make a tremendous amount of passive income from a blog.
It was a nice chat, until I started asking too many questions. After I requested proof of the $84,000 transaction, they became testy. It only got worse from there. When I reached out to them for a follow-up chat, a representative told me that they “felt the tone of the conversation was borderline disrespectful,” and that future interviews were out of the question.
Etsy: While Etsy's popularity has declined recently, it's still a great resource for selling handmade items online. No need for complex ecommerce sites or merchant accounts or any sort of automation. The company takes a commission of every sale and charges a small listing fee per item. But many still use Etsy as their primary source of income. The best part is that you can also sell digital products on here such as poster designs. 
The next woman I speak to is Lenonie, a 43-year-old "happily divorced" woman from the South East: "Some of the guys just like to express themselves in ways they wouldn't feel comfortable doing in real life," she says. "It's nice to reassure them that it's OK to have fantasies, fetishes, etc. For some of the guys it's all they have. They like a lady to confide in, share things with, and become a friend, so yes, friendships are formed and it's nice to have regulars that I feel I know very well."
Right now, I'm starting to reap the benefits of the kind of work that it takes to reach that level. When I started as a Freebie Trader, I literally worked every free minute (considering I also have a full-time job) specifically on Freebies to build up to where I was making $2,000 in pure profit per month. Right now, if I were to work an hour daily, I can easily make that much and beyond. However, my plan by the summer is to be making at least $10,000 in pure profit on a monthly basis. So I continue to work, but in a strategic way, with definite goals in mind, while educating myself to where I understand what it takes.
A fitness site can have numerous revenue streams. Create healthy eating plans and recipes and lock them away as premium content. Promote and sell a fitness training course, eBook, or a series of videos. Or advertise your own personal fitness services on your site. Topfithub is  a good example of a fitness site with decent video content alongside product reviews.
As we stated earlier, you can get paid for the weirdest things on the Internet. Some people are willing to give you money to take a picture of their product in a shop or buy something at a supermarket to evaluate the service. There are many apps and websites who will engage you in that kind of simple activities for a small sum but it doesn’t cost you anything.

Every year, hundreds of millions of documents are notarized in the United States: wills, mortgages, citizenship forms, handgun applications. While for decades, this has all been done in person, there is a budding crop of sites that allow notaries to take their services online. If you’re already a notary, you can sell your services online. Or, if you want to get started, check out the National Notary’s checklist for becoming a certified notary.
If you don’t mind doing other people’s chores, then TaskRabbit is a great option for making money online. Earn extra income by walking your neighbor’s dog or mowing Mr. Smith’s lawn. It might seem like not the most lucrative option, but the top taskers reportedly earn as much as $7000 a month, making this a full-time way to make money online for some.
