With the economy going south quite often and the technology booming, one always looks for other more flexible and liberal ways to make money. Hence, out of necessity, making money online has become the norm and the exciting means for supplementing one’s income. But is it really possible to make money online

Da! Of course, it is possible. Just look around you! If you research online, you will find that a lot of people nowadays have become internet millionaires, while many more are already on the way to becoming billionaires! On the other hand, many people may not have gone as far as being millionaires, but at least are earning decent incomes from doing stuff online!  Guess what! People are even becoming celebrities just by being social media “influencers”, earning hefty profits from companies and brand businesses. Isn’t that an exciting thought! I’m sure you’re already thinking what can I do to earn money, right? Now, the question is…how to earn money online? That is the million-dollar question…I guess! There are so many ways to earn money online. Examples of how to make money online include:
  • Affiliate marketing
  • Taking online surveys
  • Reviewing apps and websites for cash
  • Selling your school notes or essays online
  •   Doing small internet tasks for pay such as web search
  • Publishing and selling ebooks or reselling ebooks
  • Joining “cash back programs” such as ebates.com (or ebates.ca for Canadians)
  • Making money with your voice by becoming a voice actor
  • Blogging by having your own blog site or writing for other sites
  • Uploading YouTube videos (you earn from ads and marketing businesses)
  • Starting your own website where you can use ad networks like Google AdSense to earn money

One of well-established ways of earning money online is through the affiliate marketing as I mentioned. The reason is that you do not need to carry any inventory, you do not need to setup a complicated system (most of the time!), and you usually start free. You are basically marketing other people’s stuff! To become an affiliate marketer, you either join an affiliate marketing network such as Commission Junctions or you join individual affiliate programs that belong to businesses such as online retail businesses.

If you’re a newbie :) new to the online business, you are interested…I mean really interested in starting to earn money today and you have a blog or a website, you have a social media account, or you are a member of online forums, you may want to start with affiliate marketing.
