Being an online freelance writer is one type of skill that you can use to make money online. But there are a wide variety of other skills that can be used in a similar manner. Every website and blog on the Internet needs technical skills. This can include graphic design, web design, search engine optimization, social media marketing and promotion, content editing, and so much more.
For people just starting out with niche sites I think it’s important to do the math before selecting a site. Find your 3 or so main keywords and see how much traffic they’re generating per month in Adwords Keyword tool and RankCheckerAce. Then multiply it by your expected conversion rate, say 2% and the affiliate commission you’ll make. Some people build sites that end up not getting enough traffic to justify the time put into it, even if it does rank well.

Many professionals want someone to help organize their business and personal affairs. Jobs could include sending emails, managing financial affairs, booking flights and arranging day to day activities. If you are interested in this line of work there are many PA agencies that are crying out for reliable assistants.
Another common one? It's called the Secret Shopper scam. You get a letter or see an ad or e-mail saying you can be a secret shopper, shopping different stores, acquiring different products for a company. Sounds simple right? It's starts out that you receive a check in the mail from the company you're supposedly doing services for, and "working for."
One endearing thing about Pat is his boyish honesty and complete transparency with how he makes money. There are a lot of online sharks and snakes out there, but Pat is not one of them. He publishes money reports where he details to the cent where every single bit of income he makes comes from. It’s been quite a journey, but I’ve seen Pat grow online from making a couple thousand dollars from an e-book to making north of $75,000 a month online.
These little jobs are done by people who log on to a company’s site and choose tasks, which could be as simple as clicking a link. Amazon's Mechanical Turk is one of the most well-known sites of this type. Also, there are crowdsourcing projects, which are similar to data entry, where companies engage an army of virtual workers to each do one small part of a larger project.
I love the idea and that they make it so easy because the retail world is due for this type of disruption. This doesn’t happen as much with jeans and other daily wear items but those things you wear less than half a dozen times, like more formal dresses or accessories, just collect dust. You might as well recapture some of the value by selling it. Thanks for sharing your experience!
If your are interested in earning a passive income online, creating a niche website is a good avenue to pursue. A niche website is a site that focuses on one specific topic or subject that provides value in the form of information, education or entertainment. An example of a niche website would be a website that focuses solely on how to train your dog, or a website that provides meditation courses and tips. Information and value is given to the visitors of the site on a consistent basis.
21. Facebook – Facebook swap shops are great for selling things locally. It’s like CraigsList, but a little easier. You simply search for swap shops in your area and ask to join the group. Once you’re in, take a picture of the item, write a quick description with the price and post it. It doesn’t get much easier than that. You can generally expect to get about what you would get at a yard sale, maybe a little more.
Now, what are you waiting for? You’ve now got a list of 18 handpicked work-at-home job leads requiring no experience plus all those tips I gave you above. Get out there and make a living! You don’t even have to get out of your pajamas to do it – although I generally recommend that you do! (Fuzzy slippers are always fine, though.) Don’t forget to hit the comments and share any good, no-experience-required online jobs we might have missed.
Being a freelance writer isn’t always glamorous. Landing your first gig is not easy, as clients prefer hiring writers with a great work review. But that doesn’t mean you can’t make a living by offering writing services online. Start small and build up your client portfolio. Look for some entry-level sites that will pay you to write while honing your skills.
If you have graphic design skills then you could make money online by creating and selling your own design elements, like templates, fonts, graphics, and other assets. This is a great way to earn extra money, and build up a portfolio of work, which could lead to you picking up freelance graphic design jobs. Websites like Envato Elements pay you a fee per element sold, which can become quite profitable if your work is popular.
One of his favorite tools is Personal Capital, which enables him to manage his finances in just 15-minutes each month. If you sign up and link up an investment account with $1,000+ within 40 days, you get a $20 Amazon gift card. They also offer financial planning, such as a Retirement Planning Tool that can tell you if you're on track to retire when you want. It's free.
Keep in mind though, you don’t need a website to do sponsored content since you can also get paid if you have a lot of social media followers. My wife has a pretty big Instagram following, and she gets all kinds of sponsorships. Not only does she get paid in cash, but we get a lot of free stuff, too. We’ve received free rugs, free lights, and free carpet cleaners. She only promotes things she loves though, so this strategy works really well for her.
In 2017, there were almost 90 million pet dogs in the US. Which has opened up a huge opportunity to make money online as a dog watcher or sitter. Specialized sites like Rover or Care.com connect pet owners with pet walkers, sitters, and boarding houses to help look after their best friends when they’re at work or on a trip. If you’re an animal lover, you can make extra money and get to spend some quality time with a furry friend.
You’ve heard of a site called Fiverr.com haven’t you? People offer their services or products for $5. There’s tons of things to choose from here, SEO backlinking, video creation, testimonials, etc… These people are happy to do something for you for $5. But you know what, not everyone in the world knows about fiverr. In fact, outside of the internet marketing community I’d say that fiverr is relatively unknown.
If you're looking for a quick fix, sell gigs on Fiverr. Everyone knows about the gig economy. It's evolved over the years. And today, they're not just five-dollar gigs that you're selling. But, you need to build credibility first. Deliver real value. Go out of your way. Get stellar reviews. Then. And only then. Can you really kick things into high gear.
Build a member-based course and sell it online. You can use existing platforms like Udemy or Teachable or Kajabi to do this. Or, you can build your own through software like ClickFunnels and even other cloud-based membership platforms. What can you sell in a course format that would help you deliver real value to others and in turn make a serious amount of money?
The first follows the startup path we outlined above: You have a disruptive idea for an app or piece of software, you validate the idea with real customers, and then raise money to hire developers or a development studio to build, launch, and scale your software. If you’ve done everything right, your software will be accepted to the Apple and Google Stores and you’ll make money every time someone downloads it or pays for a premium feature.

Check out this interview with several fitness blog owners who are making a living online, from MonetizePros. As well, I'd recommend checking out this resource if you want to take this business idea seriously and get started with a business plan for your personal fitness trainer business today.
29. Videos – This could be an entire section on it’s own. Many people have made money by creating YouTube videos. Evan of EvanTube is a kid and he has made millions by creating reviews of products that other kids his age would use. It’s not easy to get views into the millions, but once you do, you’ll start seeing some cash come in. Many bloggers have completely turned to videos to get their point across by starting a video blog.
So if you do want to go the SEO route which the OP never mentioned in the question, then of course it will be difficult but if you go with methods working RIGHT NOW then competition is actually a pretty good thing as there is less testing to do as you can see what the competition is doing, make a similar campaign (notice I never said copy) and there you go.
I think the important point though is you shouldn’t be penny wise and pound foolish. If you build up a site to the point that’s making $500 a month by spending a few hundred on cheap link services it’s eventually going to crash and burn especially if it’s not balanced out with high authority and more natural looking links. Then you lose that income and all the money you paid to develop the site and create valuable content. It all goes out the window unless you know how to get a penalty lifted which is really time intensive. Instead you could just spend more time and money up front building quality links.
You’d do most of your work in a home garden, but you’ll have to spend your weekends away from home. If you love the idea of selling your home-grown produce, but can’t swing being out of the house on weekends, consider selling to friends, family, and neighbors instead. Almost everyone prefers the taste of a fresh picked tomato to a store bought one.
InstaGC is a rewards site you can use to redeem instantly for Amazon gift codes (and all kinds of other gift codes). With this site, it's possible to earn money for doing all sorts of things which include short tasks, surveys, watching videos, listening to music, and more. What I love most about this one is that when you do redeem, there is NO waiting. You just ask for your code and it's there waiting for you on the next screen. It's also possible to request a check for a cash payment, but you will have to wait several days for that to show up in the mail.

With affiliate marketing, the more relevant traffic you can pull in, the more you’ll make off your site.
First off, I’m a blogger so it seems wrong not to mention it, but more importantly, it’s a legitimate way to make money. It’s quite possibly the least straight-forward way on this list, but it’s very doable and it’s also quite possibly the funnest way on this list. I love blogging and I know hundreds of bloggers who feel the same. So let’s talk about making money blogging and what it really means.
Search engines often need human beings to check up on the relevancy and accuracy of search results to make sure the relevant search engine is providing the best search results that meet the searcher’s intent. Search engine evaluators give feedback as to whether the search results returned by any particular search engine are accurate, relevant and spam-free in response to the search query or queries based on the keywords given to them.
Keywords are vital to being successful online. They are how your visitors find you! But not all keywords are the same. Some get searched more, some less. I’m going to show you how to find profitable keywords (with low competition) using 4 different kinds of methods, and they are all completely free. I have used these exact same methods (And still do) to have websites get 100’s and even 1,000’s of visitors monthly and even weekly.
Bulk Selling: For all practical purposes, you can sell as many items as you like on Decluttr. If you reach the 500-item-per-order limit, just start a new order. This is a big advantage for folks staring down huge boxes of old DVDs, CDs, and textbooks. And it’s a distinct competitive edge on retail trade-in platforms, which may require users to enter their items one at a time.
You may decide to create free videos as extra content for your blog, and not sell them at all. If this is the case then you can still make money from these videos by selling advertising space on them (in the same way as discussed for monetizing podcasts). Once you have high volumes of traffic visiting your blog, and watching your videos, you can charge businesses to advertise at the beginning of your videos. Use website’s like Izea to help you connect with companies willing to pay to advertise on your blog.
Alas, not all businesses have the capacity to run call-only ads. The good news: landing pages can just as, if not far more, effective. One mistake that we see far too many advertisers make is failing to customize their landing pages according to a keyword. Think of it this way: should the advertisement you attach to “make money online” direct a prospect to the same landing page as your landing page for “how can I work from home?” The answer is a hard no. By making your landing pages as relevant and targeted as possible, you increase the chances of driving a conversion that much higher. Plus, landing page relevance is a factor behind Quality Score—the Google metric that determines where your ads show and how much you pay per click.
To get started with Amazon affiliate marketing you will need to sign up with Amazon Affiliates.
