As a blogger who has been online since 2002 and then started blogging in 2014, I've come across and tried lots of ways to make money online. I've seen lot's of scams to and been blessed by discovering legitimate ways to make some great money online in the process.
Here are just 5 unique but truly common ways to earn some extra cash or build a home based business via your Internet.
Set up your own niche websites
When I started my first website back in 2002, I did not have a clue that you could make money advertising other company brands as well as other websites looking for more web traffic to their site. I knew nothing at all and the webmaster at that time maybe did not know or just did not need he extra work. So I paid here to created a website so they would come and see what I had to offer and go from there. Boy was I wrong, and it only took me a $1200 investment to learn that big mistake. On top of that I know nothing about SEO,SMO, HTML or even white copy for all that matter.
Now I know that sound like a lot to learn but really it's not. You have to learn the game before you can truly play right? So I did, and now I get the concept of how that all works so it's all cake now.
Trust me you still need to stay in the game by learning as much as your can when you can. To get started you just need a computer, internet connection, Domain name and hosting account, a niche and how you would like to get that message across to viewers to your site. You also need lot's and lot's of faith and commitment in what your doing. Only until then and all that's done you should start looking for Advertisers like Google AdSense, Ad.fly, PaySpree and a host of others PPC,PPA and PPV advertisement company.
2. Amazon and Ebay (FBA) Fulfillment and drop shipping:
Creating own or Reselling products from manufacturers
This is for real people who love resale marketing. They are finding that they can sale their own products or products from manufacturer's, wholes sellers and even consignment shops and even the Yes Thrift stores on Amazon as well as Ebay by using your own company branded name on these selling platform. Take for instance, you may know of a warehouse in your area that's selling luggage, perfume or even jewelry at very low discontented rate. You check the name on on the product(s) they are selling against the same products like just like it on Amazon and/or Ebay. You can even check Amazon product prices agianst Ebay. If it's already being sold on their (ie) Amazon or Ebay platform for let's just say $300 dollars but the warehouse in your area is selling it for $125 you could re-sale it two ways. Amazon has two types of accounts for seller on it's platform. Personal account that is free to use and the other is a Professional Account with a monthly fee. I would test the item(s) with the free account first to see how fast it sale and if it does, invest your own money to try the professional account to ramp up your sales. You can also do or try drop shipping for both Ebay and Amazon and this is were your just fulfilling the orders that comes in. You will still apply the the basics above. The twist is, you will have full control over product distribution but if you do it wrong this could not only crash your online business but give your company's brand lost capital and bad reviews. Also consumers will talk about your brand to others on the internet or even worst report your brand to the (BBB) Better Business Burrow. But other than that you could be on your way to making money on Goods made by yourself, Warehouse or Manufacturers and even consignment shops and thrift stores. Remeber recycling can be a good thing and you just need to plan your work then work your plan. Not bad for just finding bargains or creating your on goods right?
Make money via YouTube videos with ads, reviews and backlinks.
Do you have a charismatic personality? Where you the one that stood out in the crowd with your friends. Be it funny, smart, or just plane crazy? (In a good way of course.) Do you love being seen on camera? Most of us now a day's have some exhibitionist in us. No! I'm not talking about "Fifty shades of Gray" kind of thing keep your mind out of the gutter.
Well, at lest for now.
If you know your way around your smartphones video feature's, can come up with a concept, learn how to light your set and get your volume correct on your video's then you can make money on YouTube. Even earn $4 million per year like 25 of the top vlogger on YouTube uploading interesting videos to YouTube.com and monetizing them with Google Adsense, product reviews, product placement and links in the description to your own website or landing pages for leads to market to them via an auto responder. Not to mention praying for your Youtube video go viral and grow your fan base that will hopefully turn into loyal followers. But you also need to to know how this medium works when it comes to YouTube. I also don't recommend that you only base your brand around this social medium. Google is always changing rules and some video vlogger's has gone from making up to $5000 a month then YouTbue owned by Google change the rules without a personal notice and their account fell into violation and was penalized or cancelled altogether. "But that show biz" So I strongly suggest that you add the first online money maker to this one and the others as well. There is nothing like having your own website site for your brand. You should alway have your follower go to your links in the YouTube description below the video or say Please fallow me at whateveryourwebsitis.com or what ever. Never give someone full control over your online business.
If not you will be working for someone else for free.
4. iTunes App Store and Amazon prime, Audio books and Music:
Sell your own app, Podcast with advertisements, Audio books and/or Music.
You don't even need to be as technically inclined, now you can find a developer to create something that can make you nearly $500 to $50000 a month from creating that great mobile apps for you. Even if you don't know how to code. Hire a developers on sites like "UPWork" to code and develop this creation for you. You just need a concept that will either make life easier, fun or entertaining for a consumer. Also you should create disclosure contract first for the developer. You never know when you may come across one with no loyalty or ethics. Okay so you not that smart, or have that kind of money to start off with. Can you sing or speak well? iTune and Amazon prime and a host of other streaming services are popping up all over the place if you have not notice the decline and lack of CD Sales. Author's, Writer's, Singer's voice overs and poets are all running to this new medium.
The day of finding a good publishing company is almost gone. But, you still need the library of congress to protect your intellectual property. Now anyone can become a best seller on iTunes or Amazon and if your sales are great on ether platform you will have publisher begging to give you an advance on a hard or soft cover book deal. Did you know that most singer starting off now don't even look for companies like A&R and Motown and other distributors to sign up with. They to are selling on these platforms and waiting on streaming companies to advance them for new digital music, books and information. Voice over's for audio book or finding more and more work with commercials and movies just buy showcasing their talent on these mediums as well.
