I have a question for you, what do you use the internet for? I would guess the main answers would be, checking the news. Not many people wait for things to appear on TV anymore. They want to know what is happening as soon as there is a breaking news story. You might have thought, shopping. Very few people bother heading onto the high street for the latest game, DVD or even item of clothing. Even businesses are now relying on E-commerce companies to provide the products they need for their company. You might have thought about how much you talk to your friends online and connect with people who are far away. Those are some of the main things people get up to online. But, you might be surprised to learn that when some people read that question they had one answer. I make money.
Yes, it’s true, there are many different ways people make money online, some big, others small. Some forms require work by the internet user. In others, the money falls into their hands without them doing much of anything at all. If you want to be one of these lucky individuals, here is just some of the ways you can do it.
Just to warn you, I’m starting off with a way you can quite easily make small amounts of money online. This isn’t going to be a concept that will get you rich; we’ll get to those a little further down. But it will put some extra money in your pocket. If you find a company that offers to pay for the completion of online surveys, you can make around seventy dollars a day. That’s assuming you do around ten articles that would take you approximately one hour. It’s not a fortune, but all you have to do is click a few buttons and skim questions. How easy is that?
Selling Your Assets
There are plenty of different forms of selling your property online. You can trade in your old mobile phones and tech for cash. Again, it won’t make you rich but when times are hard, it sure can help. Let’s say you have an old iPhone 4s or 5 lying around. If you sell that online you are probably looking at a payment of around $150. Not too bad at all, and there are bigger ways to utilize your assets. If you have a second car, you can use the internet to advertise it for loaning on weekends. That can give you quite a nice little stable second income. You set up the service, they come collect the car and give it back to you once they’re done.
Is online gambling legal? Well, this website offers the most comprehensive breakdown about gambling in the United States. The short answer is in some states yes, in others no. So before you try this one, you may want to get more information. The good news is that online gambling is easy and a completely smooth process. You make the wager, and if you win, money is transferred straight into your bank account. If you lose, just think of it as another bill you have to pay out at the end of the month. For those of you who are not fond of the idea of betting, do you ever invest money? Investing in shares, forex and property are all forms of gambling. But they aren’t as financially safe as betting online.
Unless you win big in the next football game, this is probably how you make the most amount of money online. I kid you not, the most successful blogs in the world make their owners billions. Yes, the law of averages is hard at work here. So, for every person who is an online millionaire, there is another who can’t even use it as a stable income. But wait, because the average person trying to make money blogging collects around $3.50 per day. That’s when you first start out. If you build it up, you can reach the group of bloggers that make over ten thousand per month. If you want to know the secret to being a successful blogger, it’s easy. Don’t start a blog for creative writing because you are just entering a market that’s overflowing. Also, it’s hard to get advertisers because you attract advertisers related to what you’re writing about. So instead write about something like home improvement, family matters or fashion. Choose a topic that appeals to the stay at home moms. They’re the readership you’re trying to claim. Once you do that, start to build up your marketing online, perhaps investing in a company to build it up for you. Keep active on social media and you will see your number of readers slowly increase. That’s when you advertise you’re looking for promoters at which point you will start making bigger amounts of money.
With this one, I’m not talking about rummaging through your attic and finding valuable items. Although I can’t deny, this is another way to make money online. Instead I mean starting a business selling things on Ebay. Now, you can start with selling items that you own and don’t want but that’s not a business venture with longevity. You have to buy products to sell at low prices and then sell them at higher prices to make a profit. The best way to do this is buying products in bulk from abroad. These are commodities that can not be bought in stores in America. You then sell them without postage and packaging and sure enough, you have a stable online business. Be aware, though, Ebay will officially classify you as a business once you start making enough sales.
Starting An Online Company
This last one is hard to achieve, but it’s certainly not impossible, particularly if you have a strong business idea. If you have a plan that will appeal to investors for a new product or service, you might be able to gain funding online through crowdsourcing. Once you have done that, you will have the starting blocks for your own business. After that, it’s up to you.
So, you see the internet is more than just a resource of knowledge and junk journalism. It’s a money making machine!
