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.

8. Create YouTube Videos or a channel :

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.

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?

    I think the best way to earn is by selling a product. Just like Harsh Agarwal is doing through his website. If you have a product which is of high quality and has a market then you are going to make lots of bucks from it.

    The best way is to write an ebook on the subject you have the expertise and sell it through your website. If your ebook is good and solves other people’s problem then you are sure to earn a lot from it.

    Hi Amit,

    These are some great ways to earn money on the side while one works on their blog. I agree blogging takes a lot of hard work and commitment before it actually starts to make an income.

    While I really don’t use any of these methods, it’s nice to know that they exist. I currently freelance while trying to grow my blog.

    I can’t wait until my blog is able to sustain me so I can leave the freelancing world. I have never heard of the blog commenting services.

    Thanks for sharing these different ways to make money online. It’s nice to know that we have options to consider while we grow our blogs.

    Have a great day 🙂

    Hi Amit,

  11. Nayab Khan

    Hey Amit,
    Some really great ways to earn money from internet.
    A really like a new point that you mentioned and that being blog commenting service.
    I never imagined that one can make money out of it, but i think it certainly can make money.
    A lot of bloggers do not have that much time to reach out to other bloggers through blog commenting and replying to their blog comment. While some of them of are lazy and some of the bloggers find it too annoying to do that.
    So it certainly can make money as a lot of bloggers might be willing to give away this annoying job for a few bucks to some credible people knowing that it holds a great importance in blogging.
    You almost gave birth to a new idea.

  12. Vishwajeet Kumar

    Good post Amit.

    Your section on affiliate marketing alone is full of wisdom and good tips for the newbie who is thinking of starting out in affiliate marketing and feel they need a few good pointers.

    As we hear often most aspiring affiliate marketers start out with optimism thinking that it is easy to make money with affiliate programs. However, as they make a few common mistakes, they end up failing and giving up completely. The figure for dropping out is supposed to be about 90% !

    Amit, you have given some really good links to prevent the new marketer from making these elementary mistakes. I would say to anyone thinking of going into affiliate marketing, just bookmark this post and keep referring to it as you start to build your business. Sometimes you can get quality free information without spending on expensive courses!

  20. Suresh Patel

    Hey Amit, this blog is really awesome and the money making strategist you have listed are very much effective and their is zero investment.
