A friend of mine got really interested in making some money online. So, I just gave him the URL of my blog. After skimming a few blog posts and watching a few videos, he gets back to me and says that “this is harder than mathematics, physics and biology combined”.
This made me realize that my blog isn’t newbie friendly. So, I got this idea to create a separate page for people who are just getting started and list out my blog posts in a specific order that would start from the very basics and gradually become more advanced. I think this will be beneficial to a lot of people.
So, to start off the getting started page I want to write this blog post, which can potentially save you a lot of time. You see, this blog, EasyM6, is mostly about how to make money online with internet marketing or blogging, but these aren’t the only ways and they might not be the best ways for you. So, I want to outline all the different ways for making money online so, you could choose what suits best for you.
You can make a great living by doing freelancing, if you have a specific skill that you can monetize. For example, you know designing, programming, 3D modeling maybe you can do article writing, translations, or maybe you have some other skill that I didn’t mention. Chances are that there are businesses in need of your services.
Sites like Odesk or Freelancer brings businesses together with service providers. Businesses hire people for one time projects and it’s good for them, because they don’t have to take the burden of paying for a full time employe. For the freelancers it’s good that they aren’t limited to how much they can earn. The more projects you finish the more money you will make as a freelancer.
Now, if you aren’t very advanced, or you want to offer a very simple service. For example, I know how to use Photoshop and I do most of my design work myself, but my work isn’t very advanced so, it would be better for me to offer cheap and simple services, like designing a logo or a book cover and I would use a site called Fiverr, where you offer your services for $5 and you can also do upsells to make extra. This would be an ideal place for me to start, if I wanted to and with time as I get better I could advance to sites like Odesk, Freelancer and get paid more for my skills.
To recap, freelancing is a great way to make some money by monetizing your current skills. You could go as far as learning a new skill and then monetizing it.
If this sounds interesting and you would want to learn more about it then go to Google and look for some more information. On my blog I very rarely, if ever, talk about freelancing. So, don’t waste your time here.
Binary Options/ Forex
Another very popular way to make money online is through binary options or forex trading. It requires a lot of skill to make a living from this and you also need to have a starting capital. I’m not an expert on this topic, but I’m very interested in this and I know that a lot of people are making money with it.
I’m mentioning this mostly, because I recently got into trading a bit with binary options, I’m following the lead of experts advice and so far it’s going good, if you would like to learn more about what I’m doing then contact me, you will find the details on my Contact page.
Now, if you would like to learn about trading, then again this blog isn’t the place for this.
Blogging and video blogging is a good way to monetize an interest that you have, a hobby or a passion. For example, you are interested in philosophy and you start a blog or video blog on any of these platforms: YouTube, Vimeo, Tumblr, Blogger, WordPress etc. And you create content around the topic of interest. With time you will start building an audience and readership/viewership that you can then monetize.
Monetizing a blog is super simple, you install an ads widget from Google AdSense, Infolinks or whatever and you start generating revenue.
If that’s something you are interested in, then stick around, because I talk about this on my blog.
Internet Marketing/ Online Business
Internet marketing and online business is a very broad category with tons of sub categories, one of them being blogging, but usually, if your main goal is to make money online then you will start a blog on more popular topics like internet marketing, self-improvement, health and wellness. Other sub categories would be list building, affiliate marketing, SEO, social media marketing, info marketing etc.
These topics do take a lot of time to master, but they are sure worth it. If you are interested in building your own online business then this blog is a good place to learn.
So, these are the biggest categories for making money online and if you are interested in either blogging or internet marketing then sign up to my newsletter, where I share a ton more information on that.
