Help promote other people’s products

If you’re already making money on your blog or your website, then there is a way to increase the money even more. You can look for vendors who want to advertise their products on your blog. These products should be non-competing, in related categories that have an affiliate program. Choosing brands and products that are common are easier to sell, and you can review or recommend them on your site. You can include links to them or advertise them using pictures or simple text. Every time someone clicks on a link or image, it generates cash for you.

Create a resource hub based on your own expertise

If you’re an expert on something, regardless of what it is, then you can use your expertise to create a topical hub. This is when you let people know what you specialise in, whether it is health, gadgets or sports, and then gather the premiere resources on your topic from all over the web. In this way you provide valuable information and experience for web surfers. HubPages, Squidoo and Google Knol will pay you for this. The payments will depend on the affiliate fees, as well as the ad revenue you generate.

Make your own blog

Blogging can generate plenty of cash flow for you, and it’s simple to do. Sites such as Blogger don’t require anything of you. It’s completely free, and once you sign up you can blog on anything you please. It automatically activates Google Adsense, which means that your blog will display ads on it and when people click on these ads, you get paid. If you want to further increase the cash flow, you can turn to affiliate programs for any product you wish. Each time you mention the product in your blog, you simply have to add in an affiliate link for them. As long as you write well on engaging topics, you will generate plenty of traffic, and earn plenty of money this way.

Make money with your writing skills

If you have a knack for writing, then you can dish out any number of articles or blog posts on a variety of topics and get paid for them. Sites such as Associated Content and Helium will pay you by performance, meaning that you get paid depending on how many views a particular article gets. You can also write articles that are specifically about a topic they desire, and this can earn you direct payments of up to $200. That’s not a bad price if you’re just starting out, and it only gets better as you continue.

How to make money online

Making money online is much easier today that it was a few years ago. Nowadays you don’t need to know anything about websites, products, marketing or advertising to be able to rake in some serious cash. As long as you have a computer connected to the Internet, all you have to do is find sites that are looking to pay you for your expertise, your writing, or your help in hosting their advertisements, and you are good to go.
