There are different ways to make real money online. In the past years, we have tried most of these money making methods. While some are seasonal, a few of them are evergreen, being able to constantly put money in our wallets at all times.
1. Open an online store.
Platforms like Shopify make it easy for you and me – people without any retail experience – to open an online store and sell physical or digital products. If you’ve already got a blog with decent traffic and loyal readers, you might want to use EDD plugin if using WordPress.
2. Use your website like a job application.
Freelancing is hardly a new thing, but I see so many freelancers spending most of their time trying to find work instead of actually working! A system I stumbled into (that’s been very effective) is using my website like an application. I write publicly – for sites like ShoutMeLoud – and share how to reach me in my bio or in the article. People read these articles, and then go to my website.
3. Live stream for cash.
If you’re already active online – especially if you’ve ever live-streamed or shared videos of yourself – Peeks might be a great option for you. You can live stream advice, expertise, events, entertainment, and more, and people will pay you for it! As with your blog, Facebook page, or anything else, you’ll want to encourage current friends and followers to keep up with you on Peeks.
4. Review apps and websites.
Brands want to make sure their products create great user experiences, and they need real people like you and me to help them. Use a platform like UserTesting and get paid to share your thoughts as you navigate websites and other digital products.
5. Consult online daters.
It’s a mix of those trying to find lifelong companionship and those trying to find… something more short-term. Either way, there’s a huge market for writing effective profiles. And people are often willing to pay you to make sure that short profile represents them well.
6. Become an Online Coach
You can use online services such as Thinkific, Kajabi, or Teachable to launch your online course. For WordPress, you should look at membership software & plugins to launch your course. One of them is Learndash which is a popular solution for launching your video-based membership site.
7. Affiliate Marketing
The product owner does all the hard work (before and after sales), and all you do is drive traffic to it and earn commissions from sales. In most cases, the author goes as far as providing the promotions materials (banners, PPC Keywords, Articles, etc.) for affiliates to simply copy and paste.
