Ways you can make money online 16

Are you looking for ways to make money online? Great then you’re at the right place and I will help you out!

The Internet is fully of loads of opportunities for you to earn some money on the side or even quit your job and use to support you full time, which would be great, right! There are millions of people already making a living out of the Internet, so why not you!


There are 3.2 billion people on this planet connected to the Internet and I am sure you know from your own Internet use, a lot of people regularly spend a lot of their time and money using the Internet. People buy clothes, groceries and, well, pretty much anything online!

Here are some great reasons to make money online (if you need any convincing 🙂 );

  • Geographical and financial freedom
  • Be your own boss
  • Flexibility in what you do – how much and when?
  • Can connect with people all over the world
  • Great opportunity to help out others and provide value
  • Could turn a hobby or a side project into a full time income

Just think: you could be earning money almost anywhere in the world, whilst you’re on a beach, at a dream holiday destination or your own sofa. Before you’ve even got changed!

What to look for when making money online?

I’m sure, like me, you are excited about making money online or have at least considered it. But you need to beware that there are people who are willing to take advantage of your dreams and, well, scam you.

So, it’s really important you know who you are dealing with when you sign up to an affiliate program or selling platform. You’re putting a lot on the line here. Your time and effort. Your income and livelihood. And maybe your family’s as well.

This is not something to be taken lightly. Take some time to check out everything you’re going to use when you are going to make money online. Do your due diligence on your suppliers, the online tools you will use, and even your customers.

How to avoid make money online scams?

You can get scammed offline and in person, but online a lot of the ways you would detect someone who was trying to defraud you are not available. Everything is through a computer screen. No phone call. No face to face meeting. You can’t use your ‘spidey senses’ or your gut feeling seeing someone’s facial expressions and body language.

With that in mind, make sure you deal with reputable people, companies and sites, that you can trust and more importantly know how you can trust them. Trust in any relationship is so important, just like trust in professional relationships online.

Scammers will promise the earth, take your cash and then be nowhere to be seen. I would say it would be a good idea for you not to hand over any of your cash for any registration, sign up and administration fees.

That’s not to say that online businesses or side gigs don’t have start up costs, but you really shouldn’t have to give any money upfront to a service that will supposedly help you earn money before trying it out for free first.

Want a great way to make money online?

Well duh! Of course you do! I am determined for you and me to achieve our dreams of making money online together. I (pinky) promise to help you accomplish them! What I have found is that with consistent effort (and maybe a little help from me) you will find a way to make money online. That maybe as a successful side hustle, a full time living or whatever you want.

In the meantime, a great place to make you first dollar, pound or euro, is eBay. This is a great place to start. Just have a look around your house and apartment and just pick out any old junk you don’t need and stick it on eBay. We ALL have things lying around we don’t need any more and someone will want to buy it on eBay! Here is my guide to making your first sale on eBay.
