The 5 Best Legitimate Ways to Make Money Online
With unemployment at close to an all-time high, more people are struggling and looking for ways to make money than ever before. Many people are turning towards the Internet looking for ways to make money online but unfortunately there are people out there who are just looking to prey and make a buck on those looking for legitimate ways to make money online.
This article will offer no sales pitch but simply five legitimate ways to make money online which are guaranteed to work.
First off, you can make money as an article or content writer for other people. If you are good at handling a large work load and are comfortable with the keyboard, there are hundreds of thousands of marketers and webmasters looking for content for their websites.
I did this for while and made up to $20 per article. I’m not talking about websites like eHow which promote quantity well over quality and pay out peanuts per article. There are legitimate article hubs which connect writers with webmasters looking for content.
A more obvious way to make money online if you are technically inclined is to be a website designer. Webmasters are always looking for clean, unique, and interesting website designs. Websites which are attractive and functional will help you make a name for yourself in this niche.
You can work as a custom designer making designs to fit specific orders, or you can create designs on your own and then sell them in bulk. You’re not limited to plain website designs however. You can also create themes for WordPress, for example. WordPress is a popular blogging software which is used by millions of people around the world.
In the same vein as website design, website flipping is a very powerful way to make money online. In website flipping, you take an existing website which is for sale, purchase it and then optimize it in terms of design, content, linking, or a combination of all these and then resell it to the highest bidder. A lot of flippers like the variety which flipping brings.
You can also make a lot of money online through advertising. By developing a popular website within whatever niche suits you, you can charge people to display their ads on your website after you develop a readership and popularity. If you have an existing popular website you can do this right away.
Other webmasters can directly contact you about advertising on your website and putting up banners and other graphics which link back to their sites, or you can go the AdSense route which is Google’s advertising system. With AdSense, people who you don’t deal with directly pay Google to decide for them the best websites to put their AdWords ads on and then when someone clicks on those ads you receive money for every click. Monetizing your website can be extremely lucrative if you have the right website.
Finally, the favorite of my ways to make money online is affiliate marketing. Affiliate marketing is a specific way to make money online through which you promote other people’s products or services to other people online and make money in the form of commissions for every sale which you make through your promotion.
Affiliate marketing is the best method because you can promote literally anything that you want and make money because there is an affiliate program tied to virtually any product or service that you can think of. A lot of people make six or seven figures each year through affiliate marketing because they do what works.
I’ve been affiliate marketing for six years now and I recently completed work on my completely free 10 Day Fast Track Training Course which is a complete affiliate marketing training course which teaches beginners everything that they need to know about affiliate marketing and making big money doing it in less than 10 days.
