How to make money online : The lowdown of who’s making money and how.
1.) Service : The most non invasive and hard worker’s way of earning money online is by providing a service. A service can be of any type from online logo design to doing freelancing work like doing programming for someone else, doing a PR job or helping foreigners understand a language you know in a better way. There are a behemoth of websites out there like Fiverr.com, Elance etc. which are just waiting for talented individuals to come along and earn some quick cash for their services.
2.) Content : Content is the backbone of the internet. Those who can regularly provide good content are the ones who will rake in most of the cash that is present online. Some people might be thinking, how can content help in generating money? It’s simple. You can either have a publication/website/blog of yours and monetize your content there with the help of different forms of advertisements. Or you can simply sell the content to people who need content. There are many people out there with existing websites or publications in dire need of quality content, and believe me if you are a good writer with credibility you can get a lot of bucks for the stuff you write. Content drives the web and most of the vacant jobs in new start ups are for content writers only. So if you have the writing flair then you can earn money online through this way easily.
How to make money online : The methods.
3.) Affiliates : Affiliate marketing is a way to earn money by referral of products done by us. It’s one of the best ways to earn money on the internet if you have a strong brand identity and people actually deem you and the products promoted by you as trustworthy.
4.) Investing and lending : For people who are already high on cash and have lots of money to spend, this is one of the best methods to leverage their existing cash to increase their money flow. Have you heard of the term angel investor, an angel investor is someone who uses his/her cash in growing start ups and aids them in their growth. In return the person takes some part of the profits or in form of shares. Remember Sean Parker and his involvement with Facebook, the guy funded Facebook initially and now he has more money from Facebook than any of investments. The true potential in such a money making scheme lies in the amount of money invested and also the future viability of a company/start-up.
5.) Building user base : This is one of the most time consuming, most long term but most profitable method of making money. The greatest thing about this method is that once the money starts flowing in, it essentially keeps on increasing as the existing user base can bring in more people through word of mouth advertising and other methods. Until and unless the idea has a direct competitor in that niche the idea will remain profitable for long. YouTube and Facebook are hit services because they have a large user base which keeps on returning to use their products and services provided by them.
