25 Ways in Which to Make Money Online

1. Make Money Online Filling Out Surveys

Fill Out Surveys: Sign up with one or more of the many survey companies easily found on the Internet and select the type of survey(s) which will suit you best. The forms of these surveys on products and/or are quite easy to fill out and they can earn you good extra money.

2. Make Money Online Selling on eBay

Sell on eBay: Tens of thousands of people are spending good amounts of cash on eBay each and every day of the year and sellers are making substantial amounts of money. There is no reason why you too should not take a bite out of this moneymaking online opportunity.

Obtaining a seller’s account at eBay is free, quick and easy and I suggest you practice their auction system by selling your own personal items which you no longer need or want.

3. Make Money Online Blogging

Blog: When they are set up effectively, monetized blogs can generate impressive incomes over time and to create them merely requires a minimal expense and some of your time and effort.

Serious bloggers who want to retain full control use their own domains but you can also utilize free hosting sites such as Blogger or WordPress.

4. Make Money Online Trading Binary Options

Trade Binary Options: Becoming a trader of binary options which are simply financial contracts requires no prior experience, just intuition to predict whether commodities such as gold, silver, international monetary exchange rates, etc. will go up or down in the immediate future.

Correct predictions in the trading binary options game can earn huge amounts of money very quickly.

5. Make Money Online with Websites

Create Websites: With rather small upfront investments for domain names and webhosting services, you can build and publish websites that can serve as your online storefronts for any number of great moneymaking techniques such as affiliate marketing, selling your own products, AdSense ads, etc.

Today’s Internet provides numerous easy and free platforms like WordPress for building, publishing and maintaining websites that rank well, drive search engine traffic that converts into sales that make good money.

6. Make Money Online with Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate Marketing: As an affiliate marketer, you will direct buyers from your promotional website to vendors who will pay you commission for each completed sales transaction. It’s as simple as that and can be extremely lucrative.

All you need to do is join the right affiliate program, create your sales page and watch the money roll in.

7. Make Money Online with Facebook

Facebook: Being the most popular social media that’s becoming more and more fashionable all the time, tens or even hundreds of thousands of individuals from around the world are using Facebook each and every day. Thus it has become a very effective platform for making money online.

The process is quick, easy and fun. Simply sign up, create your Facebook page and start the networking process by branding yourself, your skills and your products / services.

8. Make Money Online by Website Flipping

Website Flipping: You can sharpen your skills and make good online money by building, developing and publishing websites and then selling them for profit. To ensure that the websites you intend to flip or sell have the following desirable attributes:

• High Google page rankings
• Attract substantial search engine traffic
• Visual appeal
• Consistently generate money via AdSense, affiliate links, paid memberships, paid ads, etc.

9. Make Money Online by Writing Content

Writing Content: Every website needs written content, informational or tutorial, and many site owners and/or webmasters either don’t know how to write or are afraid of the process. This opens up terrific opportunities for making money online by writing content for sites (websites and blogs) as well as eBooks, e-Magazines, e-Manuals, e-Newsletters, etc.

The downside to writing for the web is that it’s usually ghostwriting which means that credit will not be given. The upside, however, is that there is good money to be made directly or through classified ads and Craigslist as well as through services such as provided by vWorker and Elance.

10. How to Make Money Online with Google AdSense

Google AdSense: AdSense is an online money generating system that works on autopilot once it has been set up on a website or blog and has been known to bring in impressive profits.

It is a system whose membership is free and it pops in ads which are relevant to the content of the given site. Each time a visitor to your site clicks on one of the ads, you effortlessly earn some money.

11. Make Money Online by Promoting & Selling eBooks

Promoting & Selling eBooks: Today’s Internet is filled with countless eBooks on every topic imaginable and in every niche market. Since creators / writers of these eBooks are continually looking for help promoting and selling them, you can make terrific online money by becoming their affiliate marketer.

Of course, you can also write your own informational or tutorial eBooks and proceed to promote and sell them yourself. In this case the profits will be all yours as a posed to merely settling for commission.

12. Make Money Online with ClickBank

ClickBank: Having been named as America’s No. 1 affiliate network, ClickBank is the largest and most comprehensive online marketplace through which affiliate marketers can promote other developers’ digital products and vendors can sell digital information products that they’ve created themselves.

Listing tens of thousands of products, serving more than 200 countries around the world and providing incredible administrative services; ClickBank is the perfect venue for making money online.

13. Make Money Online via CPA Offers

CPA Offers: Gaining popularity all the time, CPA (Cost Per Action) is a way of making money online without actually selling anything. Add a CPA offer on you website and each time a visitor clicks on its link and proceeds by following directions to enter their name, email address, zip code, etc. you get paid.

Signing up as a CPA marketer is extremely easy and setting up the system on your site is completely intuitive.

14. Make Money Online by Trading Forex

Trading Forex: Much like buying and selling of stocks and bonds in the stock market, trading Forex is buying and selling foreign currencies for profit.

Although prior experience in trading is a definite plus, trading Forex is not at all hard to learn and the earning can be tremendous. I would highly recommend for newbies to start out with fake demo accounts and practice, practice, practice.

15. Make Money Online with Twitter

Twitter: Second only to Facebook in its scope within the social media environment, Twitter is a venue through which tens of thousands of members “tweet” communities consisting of families, friends, neighbors, associates, colleagues, etc. And much like Facebook, Twitter offers terrific opportunities for earning money online.

The key to cashing in through this platform is to compile a large list of contacts with whom trustworthy relationships are formed and cultivated overtime.

16. Make Money Online through Network Marketing or MLM

Network Marketing or MLM: Marketing researchers predict that network marketing or multi-level marketing (MLM) will be the fastest growing industry of the foreseeable future and the possibilities are nearly limitless. As a matter of fact, that is how wealthy individuals like Donald Trump and Tony Robbins have started out and you could too.

However, network marketing or MLM will require that you take time to learn the ropes and then be willing to invest the energy and hard work that is required for success in this highly profitable arena.

17. Make Money Online through Informational Membership Sites.

Informational Membership Sites: Unlike most website that want to attract as many visitors as possible, membership sites allow access only to those individuals who have opted in or signed up to become paid members.

Select an interesting topic and provide worthwhile information, and your membership database will continue to grow and the proceeds will flow straight into your pockets.

18. Make Money Online by Writing for Other Bloggers

Writing for Other Bloggers: The Internet has many online companies which are constantly searching for writers for their blogs and a good example would be Creative Weblogging. Likewise, there are companies such as Pay U 2 Blog that would be willing to pay you for writing on your own blog.

Depending on how much time and effort you are willing and able to invest, you can opt for both options and you can sign up with multiple companies. How much online money you will be making is entirely up to you.

19. Make Money Online by Bringing Offline Products to the Web

Bring Offline Product to the Web: Becoming a sales agent for a company that sells products which have not yet been introduced to the net is a great way to make money online because the competition has not yet formed.

Perform your due diligence, launch a great promotional website around such products and sell to your heart’s content because you will have no rivals who might snatch your customers away.

20. How to Make Money Online by Becoming a Virtual Assistant

Become a Virtual Assistant: If you have marketable skills such as administrative, accounting, bookkeeping, editing, translating, proofreading, etc. and you own a computer that has a good Internet connection and a working telephone; there is no reason why you could not earn great online money by working from the comfort of your own home.

With telephone services, online and cell phone messaging and emails you could be communicating and transferring project back and forth with individuals and/or companies all over the world.

21. Make Money Online by Selling Custom Animal ID Tags

Sell Custom Animal ID Tags: As long as there will be pet ownership and there is no danger of that ever decreasing, ID tags for cats and dogs will continue to be in high demand.

Create a highly professional SEO website that effectively promotes animal ID tags, set up an online payments system, sign up with appropriate manufacturers and watch the money rolling in as the sales increase.

22. Make Money Online by Building Custom Search Engines

Build a Custom Search Engine: Google is known throughout the World Wide Web as being quite literally an untouchable search engine that is too big and powerful to compete against.

Today’s reality is that competing against Google is indeed futile. However, creating a search engine that delivers that which Google or the other large search engines such as Yahoo and Bing fail to deliver might carve a very profitable niche for a savvy Internet marketer.

23. How to Make Money Online by Establishing Virtual Forum Communities

Establish a Virtual Forum Community: Setting up online forums adds more value to existing websites to increase search engine page rankings, provides resourceful communities to increase traffic of visitors who are eager to return frequently and adds more options for monetizing.

The best news about establishing forum communities is the fact that it is a totally underutilized market and will, therefore, have little to no competition and audiences of Internet browsers will be flocking to it.

24. Make Money Online by Providing Wedding Services

Provide Wedding Services: Do your research, collect relevant resources and strike relationships with; flower shops, bakeries, wedding gown boutiques, catering services, makeup artists, banquet halls, printers, etc. With all that at your finger tips, you will then be able to provide wedding services and relieve the individuals who are directly involved in these happy occasions from having to distress over it.

There is loads of money to be earned online by creating website that provide these much desired services. Sites of this nature also land themselves beautifully to AdSense Ads which will generate even more income.

25. Make Money Online from Scrap Metal Services

Scrap Metal Services: Metals of various kinds have become valuable commodities. Therefore metallic stuff that is often considered rubbish or junk can be turned in for cash. Learn where the nearest scrap metal yards are, what kinds of metals they take and how much they pay. Establish a place for collecting these metals and be sure to have a truck onto which you can then load them.

Finally, create a website that provides scrap metal services for local individuals who don’t want to bother driving their metals to yards. You’ll be doing your neighbors a favor by relieving them of their otherwise useless metallic items and earning good money in the process.

    are you being serious? make money online trading options and forex?……do you even have any experience of forex? forex trading is not for people just starting out, it isnt a case of learning for a week or buying a software and expect to make thousands. Forex trading is extremely complex and risky and you can lose a lot of money on your first trade. There’s the technical analysis training, the fundamental analysis training, not to mention being able to develop your own trading strategy and developing the self discipline to hold onto a trade when it’s going the opposite way.

    it is obvious you have no clue about trading otherwise you wouldnt make clueless comments like this….

    “Becoming a trader of binary options which are simply financial contracts requires no prior experience, just intuition”

    if trading was as easy as just using your INTUITION to predict prices then there would be no need for banks to spend thousands on training programs.

    it’s people like you who give out misguided information. And before you ask, yes i am a trader….mainly equities with a touch on forex so i know what i’m on about.

    if making money trading was as easy as you make out you wouldnt be earning a living as a internet marketer but as a trader. get your facts right before making comments like that

    4. Make Money Online Trading Binary Options

    What is a Binary Option?

    A Binary Option is a method of profiting from the movement in stocks without having to finance the purchase of that stock. A Binary Option has two possible outcomes (thus binary). The investor will either make a predetermined percentage profit or will lose the investment completely. There are two basic forms of Binary Options. There are “call options” and “put options“. The payouts for binary options are always predetermined and you can see them clearly on any Binary Option Broker’s site.

    Call Option: When an investor invests in a call option he/she is expecting the stock to go up by the end of the option period. If the stock price ends up above the call option strike price the trade will be “in the money” and the predetermined percentage profit will be made. If the stock price ends up lower than the call option strike price than the trade will be “out of the money” and the investor loses his/her investment.

    Put Option: If the investor invests in a put option he/she is expecting the stock to move down by the end of the option period. If the stock price ends up lower than the put option strike price the trade is in the money and the predetermined percentage payout will be made. If the stock price ends up higher than the put option strike price than the trade is out of the money and investor loses his/her investment.

    Binary Option Brokers pay a fixed percentage of your initial investment when the option is in the money. This payout percentage can vary by broker and by asset. The common return range is between 65% and 85%. Many brokers, but not all also offer a rebate on losing trades. These are typically between 5% and 10%.

    Hi Brian,
    Really appreciated your video on Link building on youtube. You came across well, but I must admit that these page did seem a little out of context to the video. My recommendation would be to look at your existing skill sets, hobbies and interest and see if there is any way you can add value to other businesses. Most people have skills which others need. It’s more of a question can you make a living from those skills.
    In my case I became an Adwords Management Expert, not through choice, but rather I had to learn how to control adwords in my own business to survive. As a result I become more skilled than the agencies offering the service.

    I have a question if you have a moment. I found your teaching through Aidan Booth and I have learned so much from him. I have been able to get some rankings in several niches. However, it has always been keywords where I have an exact match domain, or the keyword is very prominent in the domain name.

    My trouble is that I feel I am VERY ignorant in how to rank long tail keywords that aren’t in my domain name, and that is a real weakness in my IM skills. Can you suggest a resource, or materials that I can study and learn techniques to rank long tails that aren’t in my domain name?

    Thanks much

    First off I would like to say terrific blog!
    I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing.

    I’ve had trouble clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there.
    I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15
    minutes are usually lost just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any suggestions or tips? Many thanks!

      I simply sit down with one idea in mind and begin,
      I too often have a hard time getting started. However,
      I get underway and simply try to get my ideas down.

      Often times I then tweak an article, add additional thoughts
      and generally improve the content. The more you do it, the easier it

      And here’s what’s important, this is a publishing business model,
      without quality content you simply can’t get ahead.
