Can You Really Make Easy Money Online?

There are many easy ways to make money online, but it’s important to define “easy” for those of you who remain skeptical.

Easy simply means that anyone can do it. You don’t need to have a college degree, or even be very tech savvy to earn a living on the Internet. You just need to be motivated and to have a plan.

What easy doesn’t mean is that you make a six-figure income in the first year by doing very little work. Sure it’s possible to make that level of income in the first year, but not without a lot of hard work.

Important Note About Legit Work From Home Jobs

You are probably here looking for work from home jobs (and I will list many legit work from home job ideas in this post) but there is one important thing you need to be aware of.

It’s important to understand that when you work online, you are going to be your own boss, and it’s up to YOU to determine your own income and success.

You aren’t looking for work from home jobs that are hiring (as is a common misconception) but rather, you are actually creating your own income streams.

To successfully make money online you’re essentially creating a business or, at the very least, a job for yourself where you will only get out what you put into it.

Whatever your motivations are for looking to the Internet for income, it’s best to find a path that both interests you and that fits your skills.

With that in mind, the following techniques are the easiest and best work from home jobs to make money online.

1. Social Media Manager

This may be one of the hottest online careers going. If you’re a social media junkie just for the fun of it, why not turn it into a business?

Every small business could use some help managing their company social media pages. Even the best bloggers and website owners in the world may struggle to maximize their social media following.


Additionally, they simply don’t have the time to engage as much as necessary to benefit from social media.

What’s more, with the increasing importance of Pinterest being crucial for business growth, Pinterest VAs are in demand. To become a Pinterest VA, enroll in the Pinterest Marketing course.

All of the successful bloggers I know need this service, and Facebook groups are ripe with business owners crying for someone to help tackle this corner of their business.

2. Blogging

Blogging remains one of the best work from home jobs as it is such a vast ‘umbrella term’ for so many different types of revenue streams. Many of them are passive income streams, too.

Surprisingly, many people still don’t know just how lucrative a career blogging can be. Many people still think that blogging is just ‘airing out your feelings on the internet like a public diary’ or just a hobby – but it is anything but.

Truthfully, blogging is a marketing tool, and a major industry in itself. Click to Tweet

Blogging is the vehicle one uses to teach, sell to, and funnel leads into paying customers. Just take a look at this list of blogger income reports, with some earning up to 6 figures per month as an example.

Not including the income from blogs I’ve sold, I’ve been earning about $12,000 per month from my various small niche blogs (each are less than 2 years old and still growing). I forecast doubling that revenue this year.

How do bloggers make money?

Bloggers make money in a variety of ways. The most common being affiliate marketing, brand sponsorship, paid advertising, and sales, including selling your own products, ebooks, courses, and services.

How do you start a blog to make money?

Anyone can blog about anything, and all topics have the potential to make money. Blogging platforms are free, the design work is simple, and income vehicles are abundant.

The only thing you need to pay for is web hosting, which is less than $3 per month with this web hosting discount.

However, it does take time to learn how to build a blog, to fill it with content, build a social following, and get enough traffic to monetize it. (That link above gives you access to free training on all of those skills!).

Yet, when these tasks are achieved, the blog itself becomes a valuable asset. Most importantly, whether you have your own blog or not, writing good content that people actually want to read is essential to almost all forms of making money online.

3. Freelance Writing

If you don’t want to invest the time into creating your own blog, there are still several ways that you can make a nice income as a writer.

You can write your own content for a number of websites that share revenue with writers like eHow, HubPages, and Medium.

Or you can get paid to write for a number of high-profile blogs or gurus. Check out this list of companies that will pay you to write.

4. Website/Domain Flipping

Website flipping is one of my personal favorite work from home jobs! Website and domain flipping has become a popular way to make money for those with the knowledge to turn a profit. These strategies take some time to learn the details but can be quite profitable for those who find a good formula.

Many are buying established and profitable websites, refurbishing them and reselling them for profit. I have been a blog flipper for some time now, and have sold blogs for $50,000+ each.

If you are interested in learning about blog flipping, enroll in my blog flipping course.

If you have a website ready to sell, get your free website valuation and discuss listing your site.

5. Sell Your Photos

Who doesn’t like to take pictures? Well, now you can upload your images to photo hubs like Shutterstock or iStockPhoto which pay you a commission each time they sell one of your photographs.

It will likely take a heavy volume to build a healthy income but if you’re passionate about photography, this method can be very rewarding.

6. Affiliate Marketing

There are countless products and techniques for an affiliate marketer to legitimately make money from home. What is affiliate marketing? It’s worth reading this affiliate marketing for beginners guide, which really explains the ins and outs.

But in a nutshell, affiliate marketing basically works like this:

Find a product that pays a decent commission to affiliates (you) and promote your affiliate link to that product.

  1. Become an affiliate for that products’ owner / the brand
  2. Promote the product using your affiliate link
  3. This can be done by writing articles about the product or industry at your blog or article hubs, adding the link below videos you upload to Youtube, by creating a sales webpage or store for the product, email campaigns, pay-per-click ads and many more.
  4. When someone makes a purchase after clicking your link, you earn a commission for the sale.

You will find that nearly any item or service for sale on the internet has an affiliate program, but the most popular affiliate programs are Amazon Associates, ShareASale and CJ.

Check out this big directory of high paying affiliate programs in various niches.

7. Ebay or Etsy Business

This is one of the more well-known work from home jobs. Millions of people earn a living from eBay and/or Etsy. These type of auction or creator marketplaces may be the right vehicle for you to make money online if you’re someone who:

  • Is an expert in used items of any kind
  • or you love to find deals at garage sales
  • or you are an avid hobbyist
  • or you create homemade products

Read these tips for starting a successful Etsy business.

8. Niche Online Store

Although there is much work involved, creating a niche online store has never been easier. Easy-to-use platforms like WordPress make creating an online simple with the use of the free Woocommerce plugin.

For an even easier to build store front, use Shopify.

Paypal and other checkout services make the order processing simple and organized. You just have to find a niche and the right products to fill your inventory.

These products can be affiliate products or drop shipping agreements negotiated with wholesalers.


9. Vlogging/Podcasting

If you’re not a writer, then you may consider vlogging (video blogging). Many people make a handsome living by uploading their video commentary about everything from politics to entertainment to Youtube.

Even if you’re not comfortable in front of the camera, you can still make compelling videos with your custom footage, still images, and clips.

Or you can simply speak into a microphone about the subject you’re passionate about and turn it into a podcast. Each of these avenues can be monetized and the sky is the limit.

10. Consulting

You can become a consultant for anything with the use of the Internet. Typically most consultants will run a blog that serves as a home base to generate clients.

However, you can also use services like Elance.com or even Craigslist to market yourself. Facebook groups are a fantastic place to find clients too.
