12 Powerful Ways to Make Money Online

The internet has created lots of opportunities for people ever since its inception, one of these great opportunities is the ability to make money online at the comfort of one’s home. Have you ever thought of a world where all you need to do is sleep and play and still be making money? That is what the internet brought about (I no longer see browsing the internet and creating income streams as work, I see it as play).

Even though there are several ways you can make money online you should not fail to realize that there are still some scams online. This post will be talking about 12 legitimate ways to make money online.

1. Blogging

Nowadays, almost everybody is a blogger because they have discovered the true potential behind it. Blogging is one of the best ways to make money online because it can also lead to many other streams of income, for example, you can use blogging to influence your product creation, you can use blogging to get freelancing opportunities, you can use blogging to gain more affiliate sales and many other things like that.

There are several ways to make money online from blogging but one of the best ways is to focus on building a community first which you can later monetize.

When trying to make money blogging, traffic is money because it is traffic that will lead to ad clicks, affiliate sales, and many other online money making opportunities.

2. Advertisement

This is another great way for you to make money online. There are various types of advertisement and you don’t need a website to make money from all of them. There are several types of advertisements, some of which are:

  1. Contextual Advertisement: This type of advertisement is the one that is tailored towards a specific type of visitor. There are several methods used to display these types of ads and one major factor used is the most common keywords on the page. A great example of a contextual advertisement system is Google Adsense.
  2. In-Text Ads: This is another type of ad that you can use to monetize your blog. It works best if you are not focusing on building a strong community and you hope to get most of your traffic from search engines. A great example is Kontera Ads.
  3. Banner Ads: This is another great type of ad used on most blogs (including on this blog). The amount you will make strongly depends on your traffic and your niche. There are several ways to get advertisers for your site if you rely on this method of advertising and one great way is to make use of third-party advertisers like Buysellads.com.

You will notice I said you don’t have to have a website to make money from advertisements, yes! I didn’t swallow my words. One great way to make money online from advertisements without having a website is by writing for revenue sharing sites like shoutmeloud.com. You will be able to fill in your Adsense details and anytime your ads get clicked you will notice increased earnings in your Adsense account.

3. Freelancing

Freelancing is one of the best and most effective ways to make money online. We all have one skill or the other and these skills of ours can be further used to help us add money to our pockets while working at the comfort of our home.

There are several ways to make money online from freelancing, you can decide to look out for companies looking for people to help them do some jobs or make use of third party sites like eLance.com.

If you would love to freelance and you don’t think you have any skills that is needed you can work on developing some skills, it can be learning HTML or any coding language, and it can be learning how to write articles in various niches. There are several sites you can make use of when trying to get freelancing opportunities and some of the most popular ones are Elance.com and ODesk.com

4. Affiliate Marketing

Another great way to make money online is by making use of affiliate marketing. I recently wrote a guest post here outlining some steps to affiliate marketing success and I will be summarizing my points below:

  1. Choose a profitable niche
  2. Find a primary keyword – there will be several profitable keywords but find a primary keyword that relates to the major objective of your affiliate site, this keyword will be used to register your domain name.
  3. Find a product to promote – you can visit clickbank (the largest affiliate network) to find a product to promote.
  4. Register a keyword-rich domain name – this will make it easier for you to rank for your primary keyword.
  5. Write a killer product review – the review should be useful but shouldn’t give too much detail to the extent of making your visitor feel that there is no more need to buy your affiliate product.
  6. Build backlinks – this is where the traffic comes; building backlinks is the secret to ranking in the search engines.
  7. Rinse and repeat – you can then repeat the above steps to make more money from affiliate marketing.

You don’t necessarily need to practice unethical marketing to make money online from affiliate marketing and the above are steps you can follow.

5. Consulting Services

Another great way to make money online is by offering consulting services online. You surely went to school or are an expert at something and you can leverage this skill of yours to make money online.

If you are a doctor then you can create a website that will be focusing on helping people live a healthy live, on this website you can be laying emphasis on your consulting service and you will be able to get more response and make more money online.

When trying to get more consulting gigs it is very important to build your online profile and credibility because the more trusted and respected you are the easier it is for you to get more customers.

6. Product Creation

Another great way to make money online is by creating products to sell online. If you are a banker, you can create an eBook that gives more information on how to be a successful banker or how to overcome some of the major problems bankers face.

If you are a software developer you can also take a look at the community around you and see what major problem people face the most, try to create a product to help them solve this major problem.

There are several steps to take before creating a product and I will be listing the three most important steps below:

  1. Market Research – Try to research effectively before creating your product, don’t just create a product because you think it will be good but research effectively and make sure there is a true need for your product.
  2. Payment Options – Try to research how you will get paid for your product, creating a quality product is not enough, you should also make sure you wouldn’t have any problems getting paid or delivering products. Some payment providers might not deliver a product to buyers until they know if the transaction is genuine, this type of check might lead to more problems on the side of your customers if they don’t get what they paid for immediately so you might as well research effectively before using a payment solution. It is also very important to make sure you have several payment options because this will also increase the number of sales you will make.
  3. Promotion – It does not end in you researching and having a good payment provider, one of the most important steps you must take is to make sure you have a good promotion campaign because it is people who will buy your product.

7. Creating a Book and selling it Online

One great and underutilized way to make more money online is by creating a book (in hardcover) and then selling it online.

Depending on your area of expertise you can create a hardcover book and then sell it using websites like Amazon and Ebay.

When trying to create products like this it is very important for you to spend enough time researching the search trend for your product, try to make sure your product has a name that is regularly searched in Google, Amazon ranks easily in Google so if you research effectively you won’t having problems selling your product because your product page on Amazon will dominate the first page on Google with little efforts from you.

8. Online Auction

You can also make money online by listing products on auction sites. If you have some products you no longer use you can make money from disposing those products. Some of these products might be old books, computers, mobile phones, and many other items. All you need to do is list them on auction websites like Amazon or Ebay.

9. Website Flipping

Website flipping is a really great way you can make money online, if you are very knowledgeable about the subject of your choice and you have good knowledge of SEO then you can develop a website in less than a year and sell it for tens of thousands of dollars. There are a lot of factors that comes in place when trying to sell your websites for profit, but if you want to know more about the subject you can read this comprehensive guide on website flipping by Glen Allsopp from Viperchill.

There are several factors that comes in place when trying to sell websites for profit, one of the most important factors to consider is how you will be monetizing and promoting the site because when you want to sell a website you will be paid based on how much you earn from the website monthly.

There are many places to sell your website but one major place to use is Flippa, this site is the leading website flipping site and is trusted by lots of people worldwide.

It is very important to install a solid stats tracking tool (preferably Google Analytics) on your website from day one because this can also impact the amount you will be paid for your website as most buyers take look at your website stats before buying.

10. Content Sites

Another way to make money online is by writing for content sites like Associated Content and Infobarrel, you will be paid according to the views your article gets.

Many of these sites are trusted by the search engines and it is very easy for them to rank for keywords. When trying to write for content sharing sites, the first and most important step you should take is to look for low competition and high traffic keywords, once you get these keywords you can begin to write articles about them and then work on building backlinks to your articles. With time, your articles will begin to rank more in the search engines and it will lead to more earnings for you.

Many revenue sharing websites will pay you $1 for 1000 views on your articles but you might want to check to see if this is the case with them before getting started with them.

11. Online Surveys

Another great way to make money online is by participating in online surveys. There are many companies spending millions of dollars employing various people to test and give their opinions on their products, these companies now discovered that a cheaper and better alternative will be to make use of the internet and allow various people from the world to give their opinion.

When trying to make money online using paid surveys, it is very important to give your genuine opinion only because this will also help these companies.

There are a lot of scam companies in the online survey business so it is very important to research effectively before joining an online survey site.

12. Membership Sites and Paid Forums

Making use of membership sites and paid forums is another great way to make money online. One great advantage of this type of income opportunity is that the income you will make will be recurring thereby making it easier and worthwhile for you. There are several factors to consider when trying making money online from membership sites and paid forums and some of them will be listed below:

  1. Is the income justifiable? – You wouldn’t want to charge $100 monthly for a site without updating it regularly.
  2. How often will it be upgraded – this is another great factor to consider when trying to get the best from your membership site. Your customers want continued value and they see no reason in paying when the site is not upgraded.
  3. Security – You should also make sure you test your site for security issues so that others won’t go and access your product for free.

If you could take the right steps, membership sites and paid forums are one of the best ways to make money online because they bring about recurring income, so you don’t need to keep launching and promoting to sustain your income.

Conclusion

There are several ways to make money online and the above are 12 powerful and genuine ways to make money online, most of these methods don’t need you to spend anything to make money online.

    Great stuff here John, definetly implementing key ones you mention with success.

    1. People always look for passive income but to get such kind of income you have to establish yourself as a expert in your field.

      We are into freelancing business and provide social bookmarking service … but this one need always on our toe.

      Baker this post written by Onibalusi Bamidele (Guy who wrote this awesome post – http://www.johnchow.com/7-steps-to-affiliate-marketing-success/)

      1. d3so says:

        I like making money through my blog with a combination of affiliate marketing and advertising.

        1. SEOCat says:

          Me too, but I just start it just a week ago, this is a long term race 😉

          1. And this race need consistency and always upto date knowledge.

          2. Alex Dumitru says:

            I’m not sure I’ve got you

          3. He is just replying of SEO cat.

      2. Dino Vedo says:

        Great list of tips to make money online! Another one that you missed is buying and reselling products on ebay on bulk! That can really be profitable!

        1. d3so says:

          Well that’s upscaling the selling products on eBay.

          1. On internet business … everywhere is money … you just have to be smart enough to take it.

            @Dino … would love to hear more … like what kind of products we should buy.

          2. @ Social Bookmarking Service

            Man you are providing quite affordable social bookmarking service.

            I am going to hire you for my new project.

            You should add contact us form.

          3. Sahil Kotak says:

            That’s great to here. Please share about how do you like it.

        2. Sahil Kotak says:

          Yes, that can be profitable but it requires too much investment isn’t it?

        3. Dan Lew says:

          Dino, ebay? sheembay? this industry is dead, was good back a few years ago, but now everyone undercuts each other to make a buck, power sellers are wiping newbies out with no chance. Amazon is the only way if you can get in as a seller, usually they are handpicked a good friend of mine who runs a jewellery store online was contacted by amazon to display jewellery in their site and he does very well, otherwise just be an affiliate!

          1. But amazon affiliate also pay pea nuts.

          2. Dino Vedo says:

            Amazon has best conversions guaranteed. No other affiliate program besides maybe clickbank has better conversions but Amazon deals with actual products and not ebooks so Amazon is the best for what they offer…

          3. Dan Lew says:

            @ZK – Yeah so then it is a numbers game, need to create more sites to get more / less commissions 🙂 Use WPRobots!

          4. Sahil Kotak says:

            Do you like WP Robot? I was just checking it. But did not find it quiet useful for now.

        4. Bidet says:

          Ebay is great if you sell the right products, there are many sites out there that let you buy things wholesale for cheap which you can sell on Ebay

          1. Mike says:

            I agree. Site like Doba, for example?

          2. Dino Vedo says:

            Doba? NOOOOO: I’ve been a powerseller on ebay for around 3 years, and thats how I first started making money online.

            If you want to make money fast and easy, eBay is your way to do it. When people say just become an affiliate, it is not easy and you need to have SEO background and web design skills. With ebay all you need is a camera and package stuff by hand.

            Doba is overated and too many people sell things there, you have to find your own wholesalers and suppliers and you can make a lot of money, but to me I stopped because ebay took too much time and after I got the hang of affiliate selling I was able to make more money.

        5. Another one is to create a service other marketers would use. Article writing, social bookmarking, press release submission services, etc

      3. Sahil Kotak says:

        Social bookmarking service is hard work, in my opinion. 🙂

        1. We can provide this service to you at affordable price.

        2. Bidet says:

          Its time consuming, but its worth it for getting your brand out there.

      4. Rayutube says:

        I think there are more than 12 ways to make money online.

        1. There is more than 12 but what he mentioned here powerful 12ways. In which for some people, only 4 or 5 is powerful in the list he gave. But It always depends on which one you prefer. Like John write in his eBook, what best is passive income.

      5. Bidet says:

        Passive income is the ultimate goal for making money online but it can take some time before it happens.

      6. not always. Just promote a product that is recurring and you have yourself some nice passive income

    2. Great Baker,

      Glad you loved the post!

      1. Dan Lew says:

        Nice post, Onibalusi, a lot of though has gone into this!

      2. Hey Onibalusi Bamidele

        We are getting few great posts from you these days … keep it up.

      3. Alex Dumitru says:

        Great ideas for the beginners who want to make money online

    3. First comment, wrong name of author, SY

  2. Great post John. Before, I concentrate making money through blogging by using adsense. Btw now, since I have some free time going for affiliate was not a bad idea. But what the best thing making money was using an autopilot system. I have lots to learn on this and will take times to improve. And again great post John.

    1. There is no doubt that adsense is the first step of many people.

      With that learn about SEO and also affiliate … note down all methods and pick one by one.

      I would advice you not to try all at once. Go one by one.

      1. I agree with your point. One should try new method one by one..
        First one is using advertisement method and after that monetizing with the help of affiliates and email marketing and then your own service or product,,,

    2. d3so says:

      This is a guest post under Johns username.

      1. Uh oh. My bad.. Didn’t realize the writer’s footer.

        1. Sahil Kotak says:

          Whenever you read on any blog, you should read the bottom exactly 😉

      2. Jeff Caceres says:

        By the way, how many guest posters are posting on John’s blog? Michael is one, but are there any others?

        1. Alex Dumitru says:

          Everyone who wants can write as long as he writes a quality article

    3. SEOCat says:

      Yes, AdSense it’s the first step, but my experiences with AdSense always was disappointing, with effort, Affiliate marketing it’s really more profitable.

      1. Yes that’s why I told this is first step.

        When you are a 4 year old kid you want to play with hand video game … once you reach your teen you start playing with xbox and all.

        Similar is the case with adsense … and other online income options.

        1. Alex Dumitru says:

          What kind of English did you use ?

      2. There’s a good amount of people that make really good money with adsense, but it takes time and a nice group of sites

    4. Sahil Kotak says:

      If you are a newbie blogger then Adsense would be fine for now, but when your blog starts growing up you need to monetize it in other ways rather then adsense because Adsense pays very less.

      1. Jeff Caceres says:

        We’ll, I’m done with Adsense. I got disabled two to three years ago because of unknown fraudulent clicks that I didn’t commit. That sucks man! Affiliate marketing is better than Adsense!

        Just my two cents.

  3. Sagar Rai says:

    This is indeed a great ways of earning online. I really do many of them.

    1. Like … which one you tried.

      I saw that you are web designer and except that what kind of service do you provide.

      1. d3so says:

        I’m really considering freelancing but I don’t really specialize.

        1. SEOCat says:

          I will freelance, specialize in SEO, SEM and Social Media :), but this will be in a couple of months, when my blog begin to be indexed 😛

          1. If you have any projects for social bookmarking than you can easily hire us.

            Affordable rates.

            John can not resist to introduce our service … 🙂

          2. Bidet says:

            Thats great to see that you are freelancing, best of luck to you.

        2. Freelancing is actually amongst the hardest method to earn money. It would be really great if we have the talent (eq: Pro PHP Coder) since lots of people are searching for freelance to have their contract. I saw people being rich on just doing freelance job. But I never know how actually they get all the job (they are more to offline job tho).

          1. Sahil Kotak says:

            You can find Freelance jobs on large forums or sites like freelancer.com. 😀

          2. You can do some one Odesk too

    2. d3so says:

      Which one have you found the most profitable?

      1. SEOCat says:

        The most profitable is affiliate marketing!

        1. Its totally depends on which market you are successful.

          There are many people who is making good money on adsense and fail on affiliate.

          Making good money through the good combination of freelancing, adsense and affiliate.

          So its totally depends on person to person and their skill.

        2. Sahil Kotak says:

          You forgot Flipping then 😉

          1. Yeah flipping websites is also a serious business. This business is like selling gem. If you know the quality of gem than you can buy it at cheap and sell it at high after doing some more work on it.

          2. d3so says:

            Yea but it depends. How much do you make on average selling a one month old site?

        3. Dan Lew says:

          hand down, agreed! but times are also getting tougher, there is over 14 billion websites n the net now, more eyeballs to take care of!

        4. Dan Lew says:

          The best thing about affiliate marketing is you don’t have to worry about sending goods out, or clients to answer to and there are no overheads!

        5. Having a list and putting out your own products is the most profitable. This way you get commissions from affiliate stuff and your own.

    3. Jeff Caceres says:

      I believe there are hundreds of ways to make money online, which others are still locked inside the treasure box. We’ll, I hope I could open one of the treasure boxes to reveal another new scheme to make money in the internet.

      In other words, think outside the box! I like those words!

  4. Dino Vedo says:

    Also theres data entry and SEO work. Bottom line is that you guys need to step up and take action with something!

    1. d3so says:

      That’s true. I find myself trying to do different things at one time and end up getting no where.

      1. SEOCat says:

        Sure, it’s better doing things properly than faster, with patience and being constant, it’s easier 😉

        1. Data Entry and SEO can come under freelancing category …

          What do you say @Dino.

          1. d3so says:

            Almost all of these can fall under freelancing 😉

        2. Jason says:

          I totally agree! It is best to focus on a few things and master them first, and then move on to other areas.

    2. Dan Lew says:

      Agreed, action speaks louder then words!

      1. Jeff Caceres says:

        Absolutely Dan! I don’t stick to just sit back and reading all day about the methods. Reading does not make money, but taking action does.

        1. which is what a lot of people do, They think they have to know everything first before they actually get goin on something. It doesn’t have to be perfect, just get it going.

  5. SEOCat says:

    Lovely post, I didn’t know about 7 of 12 ways to make money, and now I want to try everyone, with blogging as a central point 😉

    1. I will advice you to go one by one … instead of attacking all at once.

      1. Jeff Caceres says:

        I agree with that. If I see different methods in one blog post, I try them one at a time. It will be a lot confusing when trying multiple methods at the same time.

        I experienced that before, gave me a real headache!

        Hahaha!

    2. You’ll burn yourself out quickly if you do that and your results won’t be as good as if you had worked on one or two things first

  6. John miss the one: email list, we could purchase a large list and send affiliate link daily.

    1. Sahil Kotak says:

      It’s Affiliate Marketing only, isn’t it?

  7. Sahil Kotak says:

    Good post, Btw: All the links in the post are having problem, I hope you correct them John. 🙂

  8. Begin a consultant is one of the ways you can make big chucks of profits fast, because here in my city.I rule it by helping all the business go online..man incredible..

    “TrafficColeman “Signing Off”

    1. Biggest opportunity for internet marketers in the next 5 years is bringing offline businesses online. So Kern says anyway, but I would bet there’s some truth to it.

      Definitely some big money in it

  9. This is awesome post.This post rock and methods you describe to make money is great.I hope I will get back to it within this month

    Thanks For Sharing
    -Abhishek

  10. Kate Kutny says:

    I also like making money with my Blog. My blog is new, but hopefully someday it will be a full time income! I’m hoping in 8 months I will have more traffic, loads of valuable content, many back links, personal videos and a great big community of people that share same interests as mine! Thank you again John for another wonderful Article! You are a really good writer! Your articles always look so nice and well written 🙂

    1. Sahil Kotak says:

      Hehe. 😀 It’s not John who wrote this article. Onibalusi Bamidele has wrote this article as a guest post on JC.

  11. fas says:

    Its affiliate marketing which is the hottest of the lot.

    1. d3so says:

      It seems to be the hottest but the most profitable is the one where you’re good at.

      1. Or the one that you own

  12. Farouk says:

    that was very useful , thanks

  13. Jeff Caceres says:

    You’re absolutely right John. Right now I am making money on freelancing through DigitalPoint forums and I’m glad that I have a permanent client already. But still I’m looking forward to other methods that could make me even more money for a living. I always wanted to be a successful blogger and internet marketer as well. Heads up for that!

    1. Sahil Kotak says:

      I think you should try Affiliate Marketing, it requires less work compared to Freelancing and pays a lot more. 🙂

  14. Dan Lew says:

    Buying and selling domains is also a very good money maker, I did this a lot in my early career and invested a lot in 4 letter dot com domains.

    1. PPC Ian says:

      Dan, that is a great point. Domain names are the fastest appreciating asset ever. This can be seem with the huge prices paid in our “bad” economy for names like Insure dot com and Insurance dot com.

      1. Dan Lew says:

        Yeah I missed the 3 letter domain boat, so started dabbling in 4 letters, gseo.net was my best pick to this day!

    2. d3so says:

      I remember back in my early teens I own a few 3 character domains. I foolishly let them go because I had no knowlege of the market 🙁

    3. Jeff Caceres says:

      I have never purchased a single 3 to 4-letter word domain in my life, coz’ it’s premium. Hahaha! I already have my own 4-letter word ready but it seems that it’s too expensive to purchase a premium domain like that.

  15. PPC Ian says:

    I really like the author’s point that affiliate marketing does not have to be unethical. I have done really well with affiliate marketing doing everything by the book. It takes longer to scale but is much more sustainable, and is the right thing to do.

    1. d3so says:

      That’s true. I have little experience and often get frustrated and resort to blackhat methods. I do try hard to do it legit but it gets discouraging when no profit or even progress shows.

    2. Bidet says:

      Doing things in the ethical way can take a long time but its worth it in the end.

      1. Jeff Caceres says:

        That’s true Bidet. It really takes time for me to experiment different methods to make money online, and it’s worth for my time. I tried it on Triond submitting many articles there, at least I’m paid by them for just less than 2 bucks. Keep doing it until you see success.

    These are the traditional ways to make money online. I can certainly recommend c reating e-books and selling them online. It has never been easier to do this than in these days!

    1. Create a free product to give away, build a list, load up your auto responder with products and content and drive traffic. That’s it in a nutshell.

  17. RACNicole says:

    Personally, I found freelancing through vWorker (formerly Rentacoder) to be most lucrative since work was available as an immediate need and payments are guaranteed. I am admittedly unsure whether my success was due to my dedication, however I did try a lot of the other suggestions here and never had the immediate success that I had as an online freelancer.

  18. Awesome and concise list of ways to cash in online.

    I have been affiliate marketing with some success and would like to move into the area of website flipping.

    Buying and selling domain names should also be added to the list.

    Very nice post. It really focused all major topics to make money online and especially to make revenues without a site from revenue sharing website like shoutmeloud.

    And i am glad to inform my site ambabo also a revenue sharing site. And i am not yet builted the high end traffic. But SEO optimization has covered 99% for my site. Focusing on traffic now.

    Once again thanks for the nice post.

      Traffic is key to success.

      1. Not just any traffic though, it needs to be targeted.

        1. Jeff Caceres says:

          I agree with both of you d3so and Email List Building. Traffic could be useless if not targeted or using bots like traffic exchanges. This is where I’m aiming now….

          Targeted traffic!

  21. Hey john
    Thanks for nice post and I really appreciate you to link to my blog but one small correction: You linked to some other domain with the name Shoutmeloud. You might like to fix that…
    Regards

      This is not John.

    I noticed back 3 years ago, most webmasters first site you would build would be a directory and sell links, now its blogs, just get out there and do something, anything that make that kaching sound!

    1. Jeff Caceres says:

      It is useless when one or more websites are not making bunch of coins. In order for you to make money with a website, you need to be serious about the traffic and gaining backlinks to it. I already have multiple domains but all of them are just crap for now, so I need to use a new strategy to generate income from my websites.

      1. Everything boils down to traffic and conversions. Want to make more money, you just increase either of those.

  23. obynx says:

    Nice quality post. but my advice will be to choose a method and stick to it or better still get someone like Mr john chow to mentor you thereby shortening you learning curve. Always make sure you can afford these courses some are pricey but worth it

    1. Having a mentor can seriously shorten your learning curve, just make sure you pick one that you like their business model.

  24. Raj says:

    There’s so many ways to make money online, I’m always trying out different things and trying to see what works and what doesn’t work for me. Often it can take a lot of time for some just to master 1 or 2 of those points and see some results.

    I think you shouldn’t try and do too much and
    do things which your good at and stick with that. Honestly it wont be long before you start to see results.

  25. Bidet says:

    These are all great ways to make money, I have only tried a few of them but Im sure if you did them all, you would make a lot of money.

  26. Monkey Kurt says:

    I agree, this was a good post.

    I am a fledgling blogger & just really started blogging this summer. I’m optimistic that I’ll be able to make money with it, although I realize that it does take quite a bit of work and time before you see true success.

    John, just wanted to say thank you for doing what you do. You give a lot of hope to people like myself who are trying to make money via the internet.

  27. Jeff Caceres says:

    There’s one thing that I truly disappointed. Associated Content does not pay international members, because it needs for me to become a US citizen with W-9 tax form to be eligible with Paypal payments. Anyway, there are still others like Triond and Article Income.

  28. Consulting would be the best choice for people wiht college education because they have the degree to show credibility in their field of specialty. Though experience counts as well.

    1. Many people will take experience over a college degree. Just like bartenders who have experience are more likely to get the job over someone who went to bartending school. Nothing prepares you for a packed bar with everyone yelling for a drink except experience.

  29. These are powerful ways indeed but in my case I have to choose one to three ways to make money online in order to be more focused. Great tips Mr. John! More Power!

  30. That list nearly sums up how most people earn a living online! I generate most of my revenue from affiliate marketing, but one of my favorite things to do is build a ton of various websites and set them up to generate passive income on autopilot. That’s where the real money is made. Even if it’s just a few bucks, it’s still worth it in my eyes. It all adds up in the end, right?

    I’ve also done some product creation and made a good amount of cash, but just didn’t care for all of the legwork initially. For those who like it, it’s probably one of the greater ways to make a killing online!
