I am sure you know at least one friend or family member or colleague earning handsome money online.  You might have thought, it’s easy peasy money. You can make it too. But either you got trapped in an online scam or failed.

Have you ever wondered why?

It’s because either you didn’t know where to look and where to start from or you wanted a shortcut to earn tons of money. Let me tell you; there is no shortcut to earn money. You have to work hard.

Let me tell you a story. One of my friends went to a digital festival sometime back. There he saw a guy sitting with a big board saying “Earn money fast: simple and easy form and survey filling job”.

The offer seemed attractive to him. He approached the counter and signed up for the job. The deal was he had to pay an initial amount of $40 to complete the registration. Once that is done, he will receive some survey forms and will get paid for it.

After a few days, he received some more online surveys, which he gladly filled out and sent. This continued for a month until one day, the communication channel (email) was not reachable. All his emails bounced back, and the guy who hired my friend was nowhere to be found.

This is just one of the stories that are happening online. There are millions of scams out there.  The reason I am telling you this story is not to scare you but to show you the reality.

Do a proper verification before signing up for some work.  Check about the brand or the person behind the brand. Otherwise, you might end up working for hours for zero money.

Today, I’m going to share some of the simple and legitimate ways to earn money online that anybody can do. Be it a 40-year-old homemaker, a 15-year-old school kid, or a retired person, you can pick your options and start working online.

While you are creating your big money blog, you need to keep earning some money in order to pay your bills and get through the period of struggle.

8. Create YouTube Videos or a channel :

  • You can work from home.
  • Investment required: Minimal

How many times have you spotted advertisements on YouTube videos? Until I learned about money-making opportunities via YouTube, I never knew a normal user like you and I could earn income by uploading videos on YouTube.

It doesn’t have to be a technical video; it could be anything from a funny to a serious one.

However, the video needs to be original. You can simply upload videos on YouTube and monetize them using Adsense.

Here are some articles which will help you to get started.

You need not need to spend a lot or buy a professional camera or any such gadgets. A good smartphone video recorder can do magic. Just be ready to capture some crazy moments.

Homemakers can consider starting a cookery show or similar stuff. If you are good with yoga, pilates, or any other form of exercise, you can create your DIY videos and upload them on YouTube and enable ads on them.

9. Guest Posting For Your Clients

11. Bitcoin and Cryptocurrencies

Earn from Bitcoin and Cryptocurrencies
  • Save

It’s 2023, and there is no doubt that cryptocurrencies are here to stay.

Just like the dot com boom, Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies are at an elementary stage but if you spend some time working hard, you will earn a lot of money.

The best part is that you can find most of the information online, and I recommend you spend the first few days learning about Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies as much as you can before you start investing in it.

Since the market is new and many people are getting in, you can expect a lot of growth in the coming months or years.

You can browse Harsh’s website CoinSutra to educate yourself on cryptocurrencies.

Here are some of the best tools and resources you need to get started with cryptocurrencies:

  • Binance: An exchange where you can buy Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies.

I can’t explain how you can earn money from cryptocurrencies in a few lines, but here are a few suggestions:

  • Cryptocurrency investment (Investing in good projects)
  • Cryptocurrency trading

As I stated above, read Harsh’s CoinSutra.com to learn everything you need to know about cryptocurrencies.

12. Online Paid Surveys

This is the most common method for earning quick bucks. Now let me explain how these online surveys work.

Many survey companies usually pay internet users for their opinions or views on popular products and services. They send out free products or services to contestants to try their products.

If you are searching for an entertaining method to make money online, think about registering with a trustworthy survey company and go ahead.

Here are a few working websites for getting paid surveys:

  1. Swagbucks
  2. Prizerebel

However, before you register for any online survey program, make sure you read their TOS as many programs accept participants from specific countries like U.S. or Canada and thus on.

Personally, I highly recommend it to be the last way to earn money, as finding a good site that pays for surveys is tough, and there are many scams involved with paid surveys.

13. Become A Broker For Webmasters And Website Owners

Earn commission by getting them clients who pay for advertisements. Join webmaster forums and contact traders to get this kind of work. These are all free ways to make money online and survive while you work on taking your blog to greater heights. Personally, I won’t recommend anything other than points 1, 2, and 4.

Another popular way to earn money is by helping someone sell their website or domain. This is a big business, and with every successful sale, you can earn anywhere from $20-$20,000.

The commission is usually 10% of the selling price of a website or domain.

For further reading:

Also, remember to balance time spent on your main money blog and doing odd jobs online. Odd jobs must not divide your attention and cut in the time needed to work on your main blog.

There are endless opportunities and options which you can select and make easy money online. Try to stick to one for some time and see which works and which doesn’t work for you. One of the most common mistakes which people make is, trying multiple options at one go, and in this process, they never explore the power of one.

Do let me know if you use any other method to earn money online. Which of the above methods have you tried?

Do share more such free tips to earn money online.

    It’s quite easy to make money online. You can start your own business easily. Just create a website. You’ll have access to the entire web and unlimited selling potential.

    The risk and investment is so minimal, and the earning potential is huge. You can outsource freelancers for cheap to do all the technical parts.

    Just find your niche, you don’t need any previous knowledge or skills to build a website. All you need is the perfect idea!

    Nice blog post, Amit, most of your post rely on rendering your services to other company as in the example of article writing etc. I know that we can earn from that but the one thing that struck me the most is the ” Writing Blog Reviews And Paid Posts” do you have a supplemental article on this? I like to venture in that field since it seems a very easy job. Thanks!

  8. vectorinojr

    yes, article writing is one of the easiest ways to make money online if you ‘re an excellent writer who can write 100% unique articles. You can create a free account with the popular microsites like fiverr and post a gig about your writing service. You can also create an account on upwork and apply to any article writing jobs.

  9. Vishal

    The six ways you explained are helpful. But for new comers writing article are the most easiest way. Newbies can write content and can earn money online easily. Website broker work is for the experienced marketers. Selling and buying websites are not easy at all. Anyway thanks for the great information

  10. Sunita

    It’s not easy to earn money online without Investment. You need people who trust on your work and pay you. but you made it simple in this post. Awesome.

  11. Amit Sharma

    Sharninder, I think blogging is an evolution. Most of us have learnt blogging from the internet. We learn from experiences and experimenting. Writing paid posts is part of that experience and once a blogger has a successful blog, he won’t be writing paid posts for few dollars. For a blogger who has money to start with, there is no need to write paid posts and he/she should just focus on blogging. But for some who dont want to pay for hosting, themes, domains, seo from their own pockets, it might be necessity. We try things and then we move on to do better things.

  12. Sharninder

    Very interesting, but I don’t really think anyone can turn into a problogger by writing for the article writing services. They pay too little and is just a waste of time for the most part.

    1. Jagan

      By running an article writing service, none becomes a problogger. But writers get a chance to improve their quality of articles, writing standard, research for niche specific content and ultimately land their own blogs.
      Content writing is a quick way to make money. There are people who pay 2cents per word. It is no way cheaper.

  13. Vijayraj Reddy

    Apart from blogging there is huge money in Affiliate Marketing, you have to just choose right affiliate and use some good marketing techniques..

  14. Virtual Avatar

    Do you have any idea how much they pay freelance article writers? I would like to make more money, hoping I can help family financially.

    1. Jagan

      It all depends on the quality of the articles you can produce.
      Generally http://forums.digitalpoint.com is the best way to start and later expand to odesk and elance as you gain experience.

      For quality, manual rewrites that pass copyscape, $1 for 250-30words is the ongoing rate and for completely unique articles from scratch the ongoing rate is 1cent a word. Just be sure that you are working for someone with many iTraders at DP and not some scammer. If you are new at that forum, no one will be ready to pay you upfront payment.

      As you keep proving you work quality and stick with the deadlines, you can improve the iTraders and can demand full upfront payment even before the works starts.
      Goodluck 🙂

  15. Rahul @ MazaKaro

    important informations to be shared !! i just find it very easy to do that , of course ONLY IF , you have that writing and creation ( that will be about new topic and good unique contents) motivation , the rest will take just the few time to learn some simple tricks , then experience will make it up to you !!!!!!

  16. Shekhar Saxena

    Not everyone gets the opportunity to write paid post. i think paid posts are for well established blogs. 🙂

    1. Amit Sharma

      Shekhar…posts(whether paid or guest post) are good for seo even if its on a blog which has few visitors and low pagerank. SEO revolves around the basic point that how can you tell search engines what your blog or a particular post is about. An in-content link in a post on an obscure blog also does that. So, even if you don’t have a popular blog, you can earn money from paid posts. But, yes, you’ll be paid much more if you have well established blog.

  17. Jagan

    I didn’t find anything new in this post.
    But for sure it will help many newbies for are eager to get their first income through online works.

    Yes, DP was my first and only source 3 years ago and I started with forum posting 😀

  18. Eleazar

    I want to quit my day job at the end of the year to work full-time in my online business. For now, I’m earning $700-800 a month from Adsense and direct article writing. But I’m trying to promote affiliate products to augment my online income. And I’m also learning how to become a virtual assistant for hire. Can you guide me what to read in your sites or from others you know that can teach me how to quit my job and become a full-time problogger?

    1. Amit Sharma

      ShoutMeLoud has lots of posts which will help you turning into a problogger. Search or browse through the posts. You will find lots of information about making money online and blogging.

  19. kbharath
