Making Money Online

by Amy Lignor

 

Yes…there are books, audiotapes, videos on YouTube, seminars, webinars and every other ‘nar’ you can possibly think of that offer up information on how YOU can be a millionaire using nothing but your own home computer. Of course, if wealth were that easy, no one would be clogging the highways on Monday morning. They would be home in their robe enjoying the day and counting their oodles and oodles of cash. Not to mention, you would think if wealth online was a plan that worked there would be far more doing just that, considering literally everyone is spending at least three hours on their computers each and every day for personal time and are staring at their cell phone screens 24/7.

legitimate ways to make money online, surveys, Freelance writing, online selling, work-at-home, Reputation

 

So, are there legitimate ways to make money online? Actually, there are. But let’s get the truth out right away: There are websites that will “pay” you to take surveys, write articles, test and promote various products for businesses, etc., but they’ll give you a little added spending money, at best – not a millionaire’s lifestyle.

 

If you wish to take surveys, companies such as, Inbox Dollars and Swagbucks will provide cash for that process. User Testing is one site that offers cash for trying out various products, and companies like IZEA will pay you to blog, tweet, or take videos of products you test. Again, don’t quit your day job, but these are things that are fun to do if you have a big blog following.

 

The second way to make some cash can actually bring in the most if you are truly dedicated. Freelance writing is all the rage. Those who are successful at it can earn an average of .50 cents to $1.00 per word. (With some even doubling that amount.) First, of course, you have to build your portfolio, reputation for being on time and good at your work and, most definitely, have a passion for writing in the first place. If you don’t care to write, don’t take it on. You can advertise your services and your resume on sites liked LinkedIn, and work for everyone from publishers needing book reviews to travel magazines looking for articles on vacation destinations, as well as work in the medical transcription field.

 

If you are the ultimate salesperson, then the online selling market can bring you extra cash. This is one side of online business that is on the rise. The easiest way to begin, however, is to open a PayPal account in order to receive payments and pay others far more easily than having to wait for checks or money orders in the mail. Also, take great pictures of the products you’re selling. This way, buyers know exactly what they’re sinking their money into. Above all, be honest. If there is a dent, scratch, or anything else on the piece make sure that information is printed in the description. That way, you will receive great reviews from those who buy from you, you will build your name, and you will end up having customers return again and again. Amazon, eBay and Etsy are the best sites to help you out with this area of making money online.

 

Last, but not least, setting up a work-at-home company is another way to make cash online. This is the most difficult one to get up and running – unless you get lucky and land a five-minute spot on “Shark Tank.” But there are many companies out there already in business that will hire you to work for them. The freelance writing comes back into play here with much larger companies who want editing jobs done for them, as well as being hired by new authors out there who need an editor – and you will get paid for those services if you’re good at your work. Creative people are needed in all types of industries – not only writers but also filmmakers who want to bid on jobs. This particular field is also highly competitive, so make sure you bid low and do a great job.

 

Reputation is everything when it comes to making money, especially when you’re talking about the internet. Because remember, once your name is online, people will be talking about you. Make sure that talk is all good.
