The internet has been around since January 1, 1983. And sure it wasn’t until 1990 that the internet took a more recognizable form, but that doesn’t mean people haven’t been looking for ways to make money online.
In this article I will tell you about 5 ways to get rich online, and no it is not a joke, because in this era the internet is everything.
We can literally receive and give anything we want without being physically there, thanks to something called the internet.
Just take a moment and think about it, the world is always changing right?
Is hard labor the only way to earn you enough to put a roof over your head? Is it surprising if all of a sudden half the jobs are done through the internet? What If I tell you, no?
Humans are amazing and sometimes I feel like we don’t give ourselves enough credits for that, because we are getting bombarded with negativity every day through news, social media etc.
And that’s a proven fact by the way, in a study it was conducted that negativity seems to like company more than positivity. On a daily basis we get about 100.000 thoughts all throughout the day and about 80% of that are negative thoughts.
If you don’t believe me, do some research and you’ll be left startled.
But let’s not get into that too much, we are here or at least I am here to engulf you with a blaze of positivity by opening your eyes to the opportunities and potential of the internet. I will help you realize that earning a hefty income online is no longer a dream, it is a paradise we have the right to dream of and eventually make it a reality from.
Consider yourself fortunate, this could change your life forever or it may not, but one thing’s for sure, you will leave with a much deeper understanding of earning potential.
1.YouTube Is The New Money Making Machine
Have you ever heard of YouTube? I’m just kidding, of course you do. Unless you live in a cave looking for ways to get food on the table instead of money.
YouTube is another example of the constant change of the world we live in, YouTube has over a billion users/viewers and that’s the equivalent of 1/3 of all internet users. Imagine how big of a platform YouTube is now and it is still growing.
The first video has been posted on YouTube in 2005, it hasn’t been over two decades yet and look at its growth.
I mentioned YouTube first because YouTube is the single easiest way to make money online, and literally anyone can start a YouTube channel and start making money. Maybe not literally right away, but you can definitely work your way up and start earning A LOT, and when I say a lot, I mean buying your own Lamborghini lot.
Here’s a list of some very successful Youtubers:
- PewDiePie (94M SUBSCRIBERS)
- The ACE Family (15M SUBSCRIBERS)
- Nigahiga (21M SUBSCRIBERS)
- Epic Meal Time (7M SUBSCRIBERS)
- JennaMarbles (19M SUBSCRIBERS)
These are just a few very successful Youtubers who aren’t geniuses or extraordinary people gifted by God, not trying to undermine them or anything, but the message I am trying to bring to you is, they are just like you and me, they don’t have 5 degrees in medicine and engineering or something like that.
Maybe some of them do? But my point is, the content they’re pushing out, sure they’re quality content, but they don’t require a college degree or something equivalent to that, all they did was doing something they like, record it and post it on the internet.
Sounds simple but I can bet that you would think 100 times over before posting a video of yourself on the internet, right?
If you want to learn how to earn money from YouTube, I have found the perfect course for you to try, but that’s only if you are serious about it.
I would say, try uploading videos on a weekly basis and just see how things are, get used to the platform and when you got all the basics down, then purchase the course which is cheaper than a dinner meal.
Remember this, all those big Youtubers started from ZERO, they didn’t just post a single video, went to sleep and voila…gained 1 million SUBSCRIBERS.
On average a Youtuber can make about $18 per 1000 ad views on average. That’s fairly attainable. Just believe and put in the work.
You just need one video to go viral and you are in.
2. Upwork and Fiverr, Have Your Talent Work For You
Upwork and Fiverr are two of the best freelancing platforms I know, if you think you have something to offer whether its writing skills, marketing skills or designing skills, it is all good. You can apply for one or both of these platforms.
Remember how I mentioned earlier how you can be talent-less to make it work with YouTube? And that even if you have talent and you are gifted by God, your content seems to be very different and of high quality, you still might not be able to gain those tens of thousands of views you wanted.
With YouTube it is all about quality, rarity and persistence that will increase the chances of success, but with Upwork and Fiverr, if you deliver quality content and work, you are sure to climb the ladder rather quickly.
For example if someone looking for a writer to write for their business on their website or someone that needs a cool logo for their new and upcoming business requested something and you are eligible for that specific offer, then they can choose you to do the work for them while you are getting paid.
As simple as that, most of these freelancing work are done at home at the comfort of your sofa. Sip on your cup of coffee or tea with milk and go to work.
This sounds chill, but trust me if you have some talent in any of the services they require or requested and you can offer them quality services, you can make a full time income at home with your laptop.
The earning potential will vary from person to person, it can be $10, $30, $50 or even $100 per hour, it all depends on the quality you bring forward to people requesting it.
If you think you have some spare time to waste and you know you have some talent for certain type of services, DO IT! Who knows how much you can earn after some practice and patience.
Here are the links for Upwork and Fivver:
If you are wondering whether you can find a job that requires your skillset or not, just take a look and browse around, I am almost sure they have something you can apply for.
3. Sell Your Stuff Online and Make Big Money
This one is also a very, extremely and amazingly profitable way or method to earn money online.
Although it requires a lot of work in the beginning and you may have to ship products you sell and don’t forget about the customer service.
If you can sell your stuff locally, why not go international instead?
If you know you are selling good quality items or products and you know how to advertise throughout the internet, even if you don’t, go back to my method #2 and find someone that can and have them promote the heck out of your product.
You can try Amazon FBA, Craiglist or Ebay. I am not going to give you much of the information needed to start with selling stuff online, because I have honestly never tried this one before, but I know people who do and they’re making a butt load of money with it.
You can have your own online store where people can browse around and shop, something called dropshipping. You can look it up and learn the basics, and when you already tasted the water, opt for the next option, mentorship.
I am a firm believer of mentorship, you can learn a lot of information of which you could possibly gain, but it would take you probably years to get it, whereas a mentorship will teach you all you need to know avoiding the mistakes.
Here’s a link for you to read about Dropshipping:
4. Make Money With The Knowledge You Possess
If you tutored before or if you know you have some kind of knowledge people can use for a variety of things. If you know you have enough information to teach people about things that can bring value to their lives then this is definitely something for you.
Even easier if you are a retired teacher or something like that.
There’s a platform called Udemy where you can make online courses about absolutely anything you want and when someone decides to learn from you, from the online course you created, you get paid.
You can earn from anywhere to $10 an hour and upward.
Here’s the link to Udemy: https://www.udemy.com
This is especially good for you if you have a ton of information to share and you want to monetize it, why give lessons locally when you can do that on a global level?
5. Affiliate Marketing is The Game Changer
My last and best method to get rich online is through affiliate marketing, something I personally do and personally suggest and recommend.
Before I explain to you why this is my number one method, imagine living a very chill life, one where you can be wherever you want and whenever you want. Not bound to time nor location while having the financial status to do whatever you want.
All of this is completely doable, living paradise life. Affiliate Marketing if done right, you can have $100 days, $500 days and even $1000 days, sum it up and you can have $10000 months easily.
I know, you must be thinking this is absolutely absurd to even think about, if that’s the mindset you have, move your mouse cursor to the top right and close this tab or browser.
But if you are still here and somewhere deep inside you know this is achievable (which it is) then by all means stay and hear me out.
I have been seeing success in affiliate marketing every day on a platform called Wealthy Affiliate which I am a PREMIUM member from.
Here’s the link:
You know in life there are times when you go “hmmm, do it or not, I’m kinda scared I might lose this or that”
That was one of those moments I had when I started with Affiliate Marketing. I wrote a whole review about Wealthy Affiliate and also a part of my personal story with Affiliate Marketing.
I am not going to go all in about Wealthy Affiliate here, but if you are interested and you think something is calling you, you can click the link above.
Sure, you could be wasting some of your valuable time reading this, but what if all you needed was a little push and what if this could change your life forever, you honestly have nothing to lose.
The reason this is my #1 method to get rich online is that it is legit and proven to work over and over again.
