Many of the business has gone bankrupt, there is no work for the employees, no one wants to pay you while you are at home due to the pandemic, many of them are not getting their paycheck on time, while some of them are getting paid half of their paycheck.
If any of the situations match with the current you? Then my friend this article is for you only.
For many people, it is a dream to make money online. As it does not only give you the freedom of doing your anywhere and anytime but it also boosts your financial security.
The best part of this digital era is that earning money online is now not just a virtual dream, rather, it has manifested itself in reality. And I have earned online from the past decade. I am also in a community where people earn online and share their experiences with young entrepreneurs, encouraging them to do the same.
I am also here for the same reason. I will be sharing my experiences with you all on how I was able to utilize the online platform to earn my livelihood. And the best part of this is that all the strategies aren’t that complicated.
However, you must remember that the first step is always hard and the pace is always slow. You must devote your time and energy to slowly building up the pace. And then you will slowly, steadily, but surely reach the goal you desire.
Amazing ways to make money online
Making a decision to start something is very easy. But the hardest part is to decide where to start. Many people are not sure which methods to choose from, even after making their mind to earn money online.
For that reason, only I am here to guide you to the ways that you can take as your first step towards making money online.
1. Google AdSense
You must have seen many google ads on the website that you have visited in the past. Yes, sometimes it really irritates the visitor, but believe me, they are there for a good reason. You may do not know but these ads are the source of income for the respective site owners.
You can own a website and then can register it on the Google AdSense. If your website is getting enough traffic, your registration will get accepted. The best part of Google AdSense is that it is very easy to set up. You just have to receive a unique code from google and have to paste it on your website. It is as simple as I have just said. No complication at all.
Now the question arises, how much can you actually make out of Google AdSense? Well, the answer may vary from the website’s owners to owners. However, for me, I earn around $3000 dollars every month. This amount is not fixed. The graphs keep on changing every month depending on the traffic.
2. Affiliate marketing
Once you are all set with your website, you can look for new ways of earning money. One of the most effective ways is Affiliate marketing. You can partner with the brands and businesses and then can write content on their product and services. With every sale that has been made through your content, you are rewarded with a commission.
So how does affiliate marketing really works? The very first step is to approach the brands and business with your proposal and if everything go the planned you will be given an affiliate code. You can use that to link your article with their webpages. And if any of your users use that link to redirect themselves to your partner site and make a purchase. The whole affiliate cycle will be completed, and you will earn a commission out of the deal.
3. Online courses
If you have a skill that you can teach others, then there is a market you as well. You must have seen many people teaching others on the online seminar (webinar) or tutoring people on the online platform. If you think that you are blessed with a skill that you can teach others, then you are more than welcome to do so.
The era is changing so does the way of learning things. Earlier people use to ask help from others when they want to learn something. But today, whenever some want to learn something, whether it may be cooking, programming languages, marketing, or anything, they first look for the solution on the internet.
You can utilize this market to find an opportunity to create your online courses and outsource your skills. This way you can earn money by doing things you love to do.
4. Freelance writing
“Content is the king”, we all know that. For everything, you need good quality content. Whether it is a sponsored social media post, content for affiliate marketing, or content for the websites. Content is the central piece of every possible thing in the world. And to write good quality content, an excellent content writer is needed. Now you are getting my point, where I am heading to.
If you think that your writing capabilities are higher than the people around you and have a creative way to present your words in front of your audiences. You qualify for becoming a good content writer.
You can earn more $100,000 per year. However, if your content is liked by the audiences, and if you create a demand for your content among the people, the only sky is the limit.
[Note: You just have to make sure that you are in touch with the current trends and events that are happening all around you. This way you will be able to fuel yourself to keep going with your work]
5. Going for sponsored posts
If you are reached here that means you have gone through the point where I have mentioned of owning a website. If yes, it will be easy to understand this point. And if you have not done so, it will be better to do that first.
With that being said, a sponsored post is yet another method to earn money online and that too also from your website.
If your website has a large amount of traffic then you can make money by pursuing sponsored post methods. In this method, you accept articles from the other and post them on your website (backlinks) and in return, you charge them a fee for the post.
The amount that you get for a sponsored depends on the amount of traffic you have on your site. The more the traffic, the more you can charge per sponsor post.
6. Virtual assistantship
Virtual assistances (VAs) are all about doing all the corporative work from the home. What’s best you can ask for while in COVID 19 Pandemic. Virtual assistances basically work from their home or remotely from their company. All the extra work that the clients are unable to handle themselves, they ask their hired virtual assistance to do that for them.
You can choose to work for the company, or you can even start your company providing virtual assistance services. Just because Virtual assistance does, they their work from does not mean that they are not skilled professional. On the contrary, they are very skilled people who help the companies, entrepreneurs, enterprises at the administrative level.
Some of the their responsibilities are data research, responding to emails, outreach, blog management, proofreading, and even social media marketing.
7. Social media expert
We all know very well that social media is the new trend that everyone is following. Starting from the trendy news to the new events happening all over the world. It is the social media that get hold of everything faster than any other organization.
With more than 3.8 billion active social media users worldwide, it is a powerhouse that has potential to change the world. You only think, where you can get that many audiences on a single platform. This is the reason only why all businesses are using social media platforms to market their goods and services.
You must be happy to hear one thing that as per demand there are fewer social media experts in the world. This has created a market for professional social media executives. If you consider yourself well versed in social media and have confidence that you will be good with social media marketing then this field is just for you.
