The Internet is a humongous place, and the numbers show.
In 2015, there were 3.26 billion Internet users in total. Facebook has 1.55 billion active users, and 2.9 billion Google searches are made every single day. With such high numbers, it should be no surprise that many people are searching on how to profit for it.
The short answer: Yes.
The long answer: Yes, but there are numerous ways to go about it. Read on to find out 3 ways to create an income online!
One of the easiest (though time consuming) ways to make money online is through freelance work. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a writer, designer, image editor, or developer.
There have been multiple instances of people surviving purely on freelance work, some making more than most salaried positions too!
Whether you’re an amateur or professional, people are always on the lookout for your skills. Great places to start would be Fiverr, or Creatives At Work.
Writing A Book
What if you dislike writing for others but have a story of your own to tell? If you have a flair for writing fiction, and you have a story that’s more riveting than a product manual, write an e-book and sell it online!
All you need to do is write your story on a word document, and proceed to self-publish through Amazon’s Kindle, iBooks, and Google Play Store! Because of the nature of these platforms, you don’t have to pay a cent and make money on the spot whenever someone buys your book!
If you have an interest in any particular fields, and have your own website or blog, then affiliate marketing might just be the thing for you. Just by promoting the products and services of other businesses on your site, you are able to start making money just by generating sales for the affiliate company!
If you’re looking at even more ways to make money, why not attend the Internet Marketing Summit on 1st April at the Heartfelt Arena? (South Africa only)
It takes hard work, of course, as it involves promoting your own site and maintaining it. But once you get the hang of it, and have multiple sites to boot, you could be making a tidy sum on the side!
