12 Ways To Make Money Online In 2018
Thanks to the internet there are now a wide assortment of ways to make money online. Whether you are looking for ways to make a bit of extra money, or create a full-time income stream, there are plenty of opportunities to do so, all online and from the comfort of your own home.
Work As A Freelancer
Working as a freelancer is a great way to make money online from the comfort of your own home. The beauty of freelancing is that you can tailor it to suit your needs. You can freelance for a couple of hours a week in the evenings to help save up for a holiday or some much needed home improvements. Or carve out a full-time job for yourself, giving you a more satisfying work-life balance and enabling you to do the simpler things in life like taking the kids to school. With so many jobs available online, freelancing is becoming more and more popular.
To get started, check out jobs on freelancer websites like People per Hour and Upwork. By browsing these sites you will get a good understanding of what freelance jobs are available. And although the majority of the jobs on these sites are quite low paid, they are a great place to start.
Once you have decided what services you will offer as a freelancer and have a couple of jobs under your belt, you should next create your own website. This will help you promote your services and showcase your work and testimonials from previous clients.
You should also email websites in your niche to advertise your services and get your name out there as a professional in your field. As you become well known within your chosen industry, you will quite quickly find you are inundated with job offers.
Starting up your own blog or website can be very lucrative. If you are keen to start your own blog or website, then choosing the type of website and niche are possibly the most important decisions you can make. Creating your own blog can be a very effective way of topping up your monthly income. Or, for those lucky few who have blogs that really take off, it can become your main paycheck. Some of the ways to monetize a blog include using Google AdSense, banner adverts, sponsored posts, paid reviews, paid guest posts, affiliate marketing, selling courses, ebooks and so on… However, whichever method(s) you decide to use for monetization, you will first need to have a large number of visitors to earn a significant amount of money.
Selling products or services on the internet can be a very profitable venture. You may want to create your own products and eCommerce store, or sell other people’s goods through a range of different online platforms. There is a plethora of ways to make money online through selling from the simplest ones like selling on ebay and etsy, to creating your own eCommerce store where you can sell your own products or use retail arbirtage.
Do you enjoy posting, liking, commenting, and generally hanging out on social media? Then maybe you should consider making some money on these social platforms. Opening a new Youtube or Instagram account is easy. The harder part is deciding what to post about, being consistent and then promoting your channel and growing your audience. Once you have a large following, you will start getting offers to promote products in your photos, from wearing certain clothes to action shots of you using particular merchandise. Use sites like Hype Factory to help connect you with companies prepared to pay for your influence.
Buy & Sell CryptoCurrency
Cryptocurrency or digital currency is the next big thing in currency trading. It’s a digital asset that is used as a method to pay for things, that isn’t run by a government or institution. Bitcoin is the most well known digital currency and was trading at $200 per Bitcoin back in 2013. Now it is worth over $9k and is expected to be worth well over $1m in 2022. There are other digital currencies that are well worth investing which will no doubt increase in value over the coming years. Cryptocurrency is still very much in its infancy, so get in now before its too late. You can buy and sell cryptocurrency at online currency exchanges such as cex.io and Coinbase.
Sharing your passion and skills by teaching online is yet another way to make money online. Sites like Skillshare are always looking for teachers to create courses and support their students online. And Skillshare’s top teachers make up to $40000 a year.

Instead of trading stocks or commodities, another option is to trade in currencies.
