How to Make Money From Home Online With 16 Profitable Ideas?

The coronavirus pandemic caused by Covid-19 has changed the world. Most of us are now staying at home. Some are working from home. And many are wondering How to Make Money From Home Online With 16 Profitable Ideas?

The reason for wondering about this is to make money. If you still have a full time job, and are working from home, you may be wondering how to continue to get income should you ever lose your job in this turbulent and unpredictable time?

Or if you are already without a job, this is an obvious question. An income can help you buy food and other necessities for you and your family. It can pay the rent and bills, too.

I can understand. And I fully empathisize. I have gone through what you are going through, financially, during the dot com bubble burst and the Asian Financial Crisis. After those two painful lessons, I made the decision to use my digital marketing skills and create online businesses to generate income.

I have tried many of the methods I present to you here. And will give you my honest opinion which works and which does not. Or at least what are the things to watch out for should you try any of the money making options below.

How to Make Money From Home Online Writing An eBook?

To be honest, it is no longer easy to sell eBooks. The competition is very high. And it is a tough sector to be in.

But, if you love writing. And you have a flair for words. Then, by all means, try this. You can publish your eBook on Amazon, or many publishing sites. When people buy your book, you earn revenue.

A word of caution. Unless you have a story or idea that is very unique, and can capture the adoration of millions easily and quickly, be ready for a long journey of disappointment.

An eBook can still be effective. You can use it for marketing. You can use it as a free gift offer to build your email list. Just like I did with the eBook below.

How to Make Money From Home Online Doing Freelance Writing?

When I started doing freelance work, one of the skills I hawked was copywriting. I could make decent money from this endeavor. I love to write, and found it easy to do this.

But,the disadvantages were many. As a freelancer, I was actually a one-man show. I was the admin, the marketer, the telemarketer, the sales guy, the copywriter, the account, the customer support, the accountant, and all the other roles in a business.

Sure, I was my own boss. But I had to do it all. The upside was that I can work from home or anywhere I like with my laptop (as long as there is WIFI).

The hours? Do not let those selling you a writing course to tell you that you can work at your own pace or choose the hours of work.

Make no mistake. This is a full time job. And you answer to clients. So, you work according to their schedules and deadlines. And to do so, you work the same hours they are working, and most probably more.

As you can guess, I have left this choice of business. I now do my preferred way of making money online, and that is affiliate marketing.

But if you still would like to try freelance writing, you will need to have a website with a portfolio. Have some samples of work shown on your website.

Then you can write to businesses to ask if they need a writer. Or ask your network for recommendations. Or you can join gig sites like Fiverr or Upwork to get freelance work.


#8

How to Make Money From Home Online Doing Graphic Design?

This is similar to the above’s method of making money doing freelance writing. The difference is that you offer graphic design.

Just like freelance writing, this will be like running a business. And you will have to do every aspect of the business. Also, you will be facing the customers, and creating designs that please them. After all, they are the customers.

Also similar, you will need a website to showcase your creative and artistic talent. And you can also tap on Fiverr, Upwork or your network to get projects.

Again, I have tried this. And I still prefer affiliate marketing. Maybe it is because I really like passive income. And affiliate marketing comes closest to this than any of the methods mentioned here.

#9

How to Make Money From Home Online Doing Print On Demand?

When I heard about Print On Demand, I thought it was one of the true ways to create passive income. The concept is that you create designs to be printed on merchandise; for example t-shirts or cups. And when someone places an order, the product will be created and sent to your customer.

You do not have to do anything else except to keep creating designs. Does that not sound like passive income?

But I found out it is further from the truth. There is a lot of work to create awareness of your brand and products. And you have to spend some money to promote and advertise.

If you are on a tight budget, then do not attempt this yet. You may end up wiping out your funds before you start to make any money.

If you like to try Print on Demand, and have some budget to spare, then set up accounts on Print on Demand sites such as Teespring, Cafepress or Zazzle. Start creating designs and adding them for sale.


#10

How to Make Money From Home Online Doing Proofreading?

There are companies that will pay you to proofread documents. If you are good at spotting errors, spelling mistakes or grammar issues, then this can be a way to earn some income. Of course, you must love reading, too.

Another skill you need to have is to be good at understanding various styles of writing. Remember, this is not an editor role. You just need to understand the writing style to be able to proof read accurately.

One more skill that will get you more projects is to be knowledgeable in a broad range of subjects. I find it much easier to proof read a document on a subject that I am familiar with. As a result, I do a better job.

Take note that you have to be very good at this job. Any poor quality submission will result in you losing the job opportunity with the company or even not getting paid. You do not want to spend time and effort, and end up without income.

Here are some sites where you can find proof reading jobs. They are Scribendi, Prompt, Scibbr, and Proof Reading Services. Apply online, and get assigned jobs to start earning.


#11

How to Make Money From Home Online Starting A Blog?

Do you have a topic that you are passionate about? And do you love sharing about it? Here is an idea that you must consider.

Start a blog about that topic you love!

Just like how I love creating passive income, and constantly look out for online passive income opportunities. This passion gave birth to this website and blog where I share my knowledge as well as ongoing information that I learn.

But do take note. Blogging is not a get rich quick scheme. It will take time for you to drive traffic to your blog. And that will require a lot of effort to constantly write posts.

And with perserverance and patience, your efforts will pay off. You will find that your blog will become a lucrative business for you!

One way to earn money from your blog is to attract advertisers who will pay to advertise their products on your blog. Another way, which is what I do to make money online, is from affiliate marketing (that I mentioned at the start of this article).

#12

How to Make Money From Home Online Doing Surveys?

I have tried this. And to be honest, there is not a lot of money to be made here. If you have some free time, and prefer to use it to earn a little bit of income. And I really mean very little bit. Then this is an option.

There are sites that offer you to do surveys. It will not take up too much of your time. And after you complete the survey, you get paid.

As you can see, it requires a bit of time, and not much effort really. So naturally, the earning you get will be just a little. Some surveys pay as low as $1 for a completed survey.

Also, do note that many do not pay cash. I did one that gives me points. After I get enough points, I can convert them to rewards. It will take a lot of points to get a reward.

Some of the survey sites include iPoll, SwagBucks, Survey Junkie, and JoinMyPoints.


#13

How to Make Money From Home Online Teaching Others?

I am a lecturer for a university in Dublin, Ireland. And I also teach at a few institutes in Singapore. With the current coronavirus pandemic, my classes have been moved to the online platform.

This is also a very lucrative way to make money online. People are looking for courses to learn new skills and knowledge. Or to upgrade them. Your years of experience is now valuable to them.

You can create a membership website offering courses or you can join education sites and share your lessons there. Some of the education sites are SkillShare and Udemy.

What you do is sign up with these sites. Then create your lessons. Many of these education sites have tools to help you do that. Then build a following who will buy your lessons. And you start earning.

I have created an online course here at Passive Online Revenue. After you join my I Love Passive Income community, you will receive a Free eBook with a blueprint on how to start your successful online business. You will also receive an online course guiding you how to do that. It is also Free!

#14

How to Make Money From Home Online Transcribing?

Transcribing is a repetitive task of listening to audio or video files, and typing what you hear. Sounds easy? It can be. Unless you have to transcribe a poor quality file. And that is most of the cases.

In addition, for all the work, you get paid very little. So, to earn enough, you have to do a lot of transcribing. Or if you are very lucky, you may get a higher paid gig.

Some sites to get transcribing work are Transcribe Anywhere, TranscribeMe, and Quicktate.


#15

How to Make Money From Home Online Doing Translations?

Translations are obviously different from transcribing. You have to be fluent in at least two languages.

You will be given a document, an audio or video file to translate the words written or spoken there. You have to be very accurate.

Some sites to get translation jobs are Translate, Unbabel and even Airbnb.


#16

How to Make Money From Home Online Doing YouTube Videos?

I have seen many Vloggers earning large sums of money on YouTube. Have you?

This is definitely a profitable way to make money. You can create a channel and upload videos. When you get at least 1,000 subscribers and 4,000 hours of watch time within the past 12 months, your channel will start to monetize.

When your channel starts to monetize, you get paid for every 1,000 views. It is eighty cents for every 1,000 views with banner ads. And $5 to $8 per 1,000 views for rollout ads. This comes to earnings of $5,000 to $8,000 for 1,000,000 views.

So, now you see why so many people are flocking to YouTube to make money? And do you see the challenge here? Yes, high competition.

So, unless you become the next Pewdiepie, you will find it hard to make a lot of money. Especially at the start when you are a new channel.

Other ways to earn from YouTube is to promote merchandise, crowdfund, be a sponsored video, or even promote affiliate products.

How to Make Money From Home Online With 16 Profitable Ideas? – Passive Online Revenue Final Word

Passive Online Revenue Logo

Back in the mid 2010s, I have chosen to stop working full time for a corporation. I decided then to start an online business, and make my fortune.

I have done many money making methods working from home. And I have shared them here in this post.

There are affiliate marketing, selling digital products, providing a service like translation or graphic design as a gig, dropshipping, and more.

Also, I have given my honest opinion on each of them. My views are based on my experience with each of the options.

Ultimately, today, I find that I much prefer affiliate marketing. To me, it comes closest to creating passive income. I say comes closest because, to me, there is not any one way to make money that is totally passive income.

Even investments need to be monitored. Properties need to be maintained, and rentals have to be chased. Stock markets have to be closely watched, along with constant health checks.

With affiliate marketing, I simply create content on my websites. I find brands with products that I can promote. Use the given affiliate link on my sites. When people click on them, I earn a commission.

No need to fulfil an order. No need to manage clients. No inventory costs. No overheads.

Great right? It truly is. Interested to find out more? Click on the ‘Yes! I Want To Make Money!’ button below.

How to Make Money From Etsy?

Do you love to create your very own hand made products? Are you looking to make money from them? Especially selling them online? This article will teach you How to Make Money from Etsy?

Is Etsy a good choice to showcase your products? What are the pros and cons of selling on this eCommerce platform? And how to do it right?

You will learn all this, and more in this article.


What is Etsy?

Etsy is an eCommerce site where hand made items are sold by people who create them. The platform is also an online space for selling vintage items and craft supplies.

Hand made items can include a wide range of product categories such as jewelry, bags, clothing, home decor, furniture, toys, and art. For vintage items, the criterion is that they must be at least 20 years old.

Vintage Tea Cup and Saucer

In 2018, Etsy reported a total sales of US$3.93 billion


How Does Etsy Work?

Remember those fairs where they sell hand made arts and crafts? Etsy is the same except it is online.

Each stall that used to be in those physical fairs are now on the Etsy sites as individual online stores. And each store is given a store front.

Traditional Arts and Crafts Fair

Sellers can create a shop on Etsy for free. And they can list their wares there. Etsy charges US$0.20 for each item on display in this online store.

Buyers visit Etsy, and shop around. They buy products displayed at the stores. The sellers then make a sale and money.


What Are the Advantages of Etsy?

1. Huge market

In 2018, Etsy has more than 35 million active buyers. This huge market of potential customers is projected to grow in 2019.

2. Easy to Set Up and Maintain Listings

3. Collaborative Community

4. Well Known and Trusted by Consumers

5. Useful Data and Analytics

Etsy offers data to help you understand more about your shop and business.


I will further expand on the above points in a future blog post. Please do join my I Love Passive Income Community to receive updates.


What Are the Disadvantages of Etsy?

1. Need A Lot of Marketing

2. High Competition – need to stand out

3. Need to Do Powerful and Effective SEO (Search Engine Optimization)

5. Your Products Get Copied and Sold Cheaper


I will further expand on the above points in a future blog post. Please do join my I Love Passive Income Community to receive updates.


How to Make Money From Etsy?

1. Choose a Niche

As with any business, you must decide on a niche. This is the market you wish to offer your product or service.

Ideally, it should also be a topic you are passionate about. After all, you are going to create these products. For example, I am passionate about crystals. I could do an Etsy store selling crystal jewelry that I create by my own hands.

I have many students and mentees who ar always stuck at choosing a niche. To make it easy for you, here is a video by Kyle, an expert in online businesses. Click on the image below to watch the video now.

2. Decide on a Product Line to Create

A niche can have a wide variety of products to sell. For example, in the arts and crafts niche, you could sell beaded products, jewelry, or even antiques.

If you already have an idea of a hand made product, then good for you. If not, and if you are coming on board Etsy without an idea of what to make and sell, then I suggest you watch the video above first.

Learn how to choose a niche. Then search on Etsy to see what products are being sold there within that niche. Just to get ideas and inspiration.

Try not to copy. It will be a tougher road for you because you will have to compete with successful sellers.

3. Know Your Competitors

Now that you have decided on your niche and product, search on Etsy to see who are your competitors? A little competition is all right. It means that the product is in demand.

But too much competition may not be so good for you. As said in the list of disadvantages, when you have too much competition, it would be very hard to stand out from the crowd.

As such, your product many not get found on Etsy. This results in no sales. Many sellers on Etsy face this problem.

4. Create Your Product

Now it comes back to your unique hand made product. The merchandise that started this quest of yours to make money from Etsy.

Handmade Soap and Honey
Handmade Soap and Honey

Create a high quality product. Then take really good and high quality photos of it. Make it unique to stand out. Also, think of unique and interesting name and description for your product.

5. Create Your Etsy Store

When you are ready, you can go to Etsy and open an account with them. Next, set up your shop. Get ready your brand name and logo.

Passive Income Tip: Opening an Etsy account is Free! But watch out for the listing, transaction and payment processing fees.

You can use Etsy’s payment system or PayPal. Either will incur a payment processing fee.

6. Create Your Etsy Listing

After you have created your Etsy store, you are ready to add a listing. This will feature your product that you are selling.

In step 4, it was mentioned to get ready high quality photos, name and description of your product. You can add them into your listing now.

7. Complete That Sale

When a shopper buys your product, complete the sale by fulfilling the order. This includes packaging and shipping the product to the customer.

8. Grow Your Etsy Business

One of the difficulties mentioned by many sellers is that their store and product can get lost in the ocean of shops and listings on Etsy. As such, you cannot rely on Etsy to promote for you.

To succeed, you will need to do a lot of advertising and promotion of your brand, eCommerce store and products on other sites. You will need to do marketing, especially digital marketing.

I have written many articles about digital marketing strategies to promote your business. Your Etsy store is now your online business. You can start to learn about digital marketing by clicking on the image below.

The Better Alternative – Affiliate Marketing

Why Affiliate Marketing is Better Than Etsy?

After you have read the above on how to make money from Etsy, I am sure you realized one thing. It is a lot of hard work. That is all fine if you enjoy it.

I prefer to work less, and still make more money. And if you are like me, you would like affiliate marketing.


What is Affiliate Marketing?

I found affiliate marketing requires less hard work. And as such, it is closer to truly being a form of passive income.

Not sure what it is all about? Here is the video from Kyle, an affiliate marketing veteran of more than 20 years. He explains what it is all about. Click on the image below to watch and learn.

But it can also take a lot of time. And money. For example, the cost of material to create that hand made product.

How to Make Money with eBay?

There are many online marketplaces on the Internet today. And just like you, in my endeavor to create passive income, I tried a few of them. I tried eBay, then Amazon, and then eBay again. Today, I would like to share my experience on How to Make Money with eBay?

You will learn if this is an ideal option for making money on the Internet? Also, I will share about what I have learned and experienced selling on eBay.

I will list the advantages and disadvantages. And then explain how to make money on this marketplace.

So, why did I say that I tried eBay, and then Amazon, and then eBay again? Well, I did eBay many years ago. Then I stopped.

I moved on to Amazon where I created a private label product, and sold it on with FBA (Fulfillment By Amazon). I also tried drop shipping. That was when I returned to eBay.


What is eBay?

According to eBay, they are “the world’s online marketplace; a place for buyers and sellers to come together and trade almost anything!”

eBay logo
eBay logo

They started as an online auction site. And evolved into a shopping site.


How Does eBay Work?

For the online auction, you put up an item for sale. You specify an opening bid price. Over a set number of days, buyers will place bids on the item. When time is up, the highest bid wins.

For the online shopping side, you become a seller, and you list an item for sale. You offer to sell as a Buy It Now, and consumers can buy it at the fixed price that you indicated.


What Are the Advantages of eBay?

eBay surely has its advantages. That is why many people, including me, do this. Here are some of the benefits:

1. Huge market

eBay has 177 million active users. That is a huge market of potential customers for you.

2. Superb SEO (Search Engine Optimization)

While eBay may not be as powerful as Amazon in SEO, some products do get ranked high. Some even on the first page of search results. This translates to driving traffic to your listing, and getting more sales and revenue.

What is SEO and How Does It Work?

3. Instant trust

Shoppers are protected against scams and bad service on eBay. While your brand can be new and unknown to them, they will still buy because they trust eBay.

4. The option to auction

You can reserve a price so that you do not sell lower than what your product is worth. And you may even get a higher price than you asked for.

5. Lower fees

The fees at eBay are lower than Amazon. This means you get more profit from your sales.

6. Shipping Assistance

You get lower shipping costs. This pleases buyers as they get to save as much as 37%.


I will further expand on the above points in a future blog post. Please do join my I Love Passive Income Community to receive updates.


What Are the Disadvantages of eBay?

After some time doing eBay, I soon discover that there are also some disadvantages to this way of making money online.

1. You need to find good and quality products

You Can Sell Products On Your Blog
You Can Sell Products On Your Blog

2. You need to find good and reliable suppliers

3. You need to constantly monitor stock availability with suppliers

4. eBay favors the buyer

There can be customer complaints that can cause problems for you with eBay. This is because they will listen to the customer, and most often side with them.

5. There can be unfair customer reviews

An unhappy customer can leave a bad review. This can ruin your chances at succeeding at eBay.

6. You need to build brand equity

As a result, you will spend a lot of money on advertising and promotion.


I will further expand on the above points in a future blog post. Please do join my I Love Passive Income Community to receive updates.


How to Make Money From eBay?

Despite the disadvantages mentioned above, you are still keen and ready to make money from eBay? Awesome! Here is the first thing you need to do.

1. Choose a Niche

One of the things I learned when I did eBay was – Do not sell everything. The best approach is to choose a niche.

And it should be a niche that you are passionate about. For example, I love to travel. So, I chose the travel niche.

I know how difficult it may be to find and choose a niche.So, here is a video to help you. It by Kyle, an expert in online businesses. Click on the image below to watch the video now.

How To Choose Your Niche Training

2. Choose a Product

Next, you need to choose a product within that niche. It is not easy to find the right product. There are so many things to consider.

For example, is there demand for this product? Is the cost price low enough to give you a decent profit? Can you find a good and reliable supplier for this product? Is the manufactured product of good quality? Who are the competitors, and what are their selling price?

So many questions. And these are just a few. As you research and look at products, you will find yourself asking many more questions.

3. Know Your Competitors

It may sound weird, but it is actually good to find a product that has competitors. This means it is in demand.

Then look at your competitors, and find out what they are doing. How they sell? And how they are doing?

Know Your Competitors
Know Your Competitors

The tough part is that when you sell the same product as your competitors, consumers will see no difference. As a result, they will buy the cheapest offer.

4. Find a Good and Reliable Supplier

You have to be very careful with this step. Over the years of doing eCommerce, I realized that finding a good and reliable supplier is very important.

A supplier must produce consistent and good quality products. They must have a good track record. They must offer a variety of payment methods and shipping.

When assessing a supplier, you should ask as many questions as possible to get all the facts you need. For example, ask about their production capabilities. Are they able to cope when your business grows and you need more products? Can they maintain the quality as the production and business scale?

5. Create Your eBay Store

When you are ready, you can set up your eBay store, and add your first product listing. Go to eBay, and open an account with them.

Passive Income Tip: Consider the fees for standard or paid subscription.

You will also need to have a PayPal account. This is for buyers to pay you with a credit card or a checking account. They can also pay you using PayPal. Also, you can transfer the earnings from PayPal to your bank account.

6. Create Your eBay Listing

You can list your item for auction or sale. For auction, you list the item, and give an opening bid. Allow a set number of days for shoppers to place their bids. At the end of the auction, the highest price wins.

Passive Income Tip: For auctions, set a Reserve Price.

You can also list your item for sale with the option – Buy It Now. You can set the price for the product. Shoppers know your offer, and when they agree, they will buy it straight out.

7. Complete That Sale

After you listing has a winning bid or buyer, you need to follow up, and ship the product to him or her. Do this immediately or you will get blacklisted by eBay.

Customer service is very important to eBay. After all, shoppers are their business. And they earn their profits when shoppers buy. So, they must make their consumer base happy.

So, after the sale is done, and payment is made, make sure you ship the item to your customer.

8. Grow Your eBay Business

To succeed with eBay, you should get feedback and give feedback. You can always ask your buyers to leave a feedback after they have received and used the product. Good reviews can encourage others to buy.

You should also leave feedback to your customers, too. It can help improve their reputation (if it was a good experience). This helps the buyer to enjoy a better shopping experience on eBay


The Better Alternative – Affiliate Marketing

Why Affiliate Marketing is Better Than eBay?

After you have read the above on how to make money with eBay, I am sure you realized one thing. It is a lot of hard work. That is all fine if you enjoy it.

I prefer to work less, and still make more money. And if you are like me, you would like affiliate marketing.


What is Affiliate Marketing?

I found affiliate marketing requires less hard work. And as such, it is more passive income.

eBay has been around for a long time. And many people have made a lot of money from this marketplace. So, I do find it works.

But it can also take a lot of time. And money.

If you are starting out, and do not have a huge budget or looking something conservative to start with, then affiliate marketing is the best choice.

How to Make Money with Dropshipping?

I had years of experience of trying out various ways to make money on the Internet. Drop shipping was one of them. Having tried it, I am here today to share my experience with you on How to Make Money with Dropshipping?

When I decided to do eCommerce, my first attempt was creating a private label product, and selling it with FBA (Fulfillment by Amazon). I soon discovered there were many disadvantages, and also a lot of hard work.

Then I learned drop shipping. It did saved some costs, and have some advantages over private label. But is it really a good way to make money online?

Today, in this article, I save you time, and share all that I have learned and experienced with drop shipping. I will list the advantages and disadvantages. I will also give my view on whether this is a good choice for making money online.


What is Dropshipping?

Drop shipping is when you sell products but you do not keep them in stock. When a customer orders an item from your eCommerce store, you get it from a manufacturer, a wholesaler or even another retailer.

The product is then shipped to your customer. The shipping is done with an agreed shipping service that you pay for.


What Are the Advantages of Dropshipping?

Drop shipping surely has advantages. That is why many people, including me, do this. Here are some of the benefits:

  • You Do Not Need To Produce Products
  • You Do Not Need Need To Stock Inventory – As such, the risks are lower
  • You Can Sell a Wide Variety of Products
  • You Do Not Need To Do Shipping
  • Your Fulfillment Cost Will Be Low

I will further expand on the above points in a future blog post. Please do join my I Love Passive Income Community to receive updates.


What Are the Disadvantages of Dropshipping?

After some time doing dropshipping, I soon discover that there are many disadvantages to this way of making money online.

  • You Need To Find Good and Quality Products
  • You Need to Find Good and Reliable Suppliers
  • You Need to Constantly Monitor Stock Availability with Supplier
  • You Need to Constantly Update the Website, especially when out of stock
  • You Need to Find Low Shipping Costs
  • You Need to Build Brand Equity – Spend a Lot on Advertising
  • Your Profits are Relatively Lower
  • There is Poorer Quality Control

I will further expand on the above points in a future blog post. Please do join my I Love Passive Income Community to receive updates.


How to Make Money From Dropshipping?

Now that you understand what is drop shipping, the advantages and disadvantages, let me share with you how to make money using drop shipping. The first thing you need to do is to choose a niche.

Choose a Niche

The first and most important step in making money from drop shipping is to find and choose a niche. It should be one that you are interested in. Better still, make it a niche on a topic or subject that you are passionate about. For example, I am very passionate about making money online. And hence, I created this website about creating passive income via the Internet.

The reason why it should be a niche or topic that you are passionate about is because if it is not, there can be a high chance that you will soon lose interest. And that can be detrimental to your business.

Not sure how to find and choose a niche? Here is a video from an expert with lots of online businesses making tons of money. Click on the image below to go to the site, and learn how to find your right niche.

Choose a Product

I have found this to be the tricky part of the process. It takes a lot of research and time to find the right product to sell.

You have to find one that is within your niche. A product that is in demand so that you can get sales. Also, a product that, after all the costs, can make a decent profit. After all, the time and effort for a product that makes $10 is the same as a product that makes $1000.

Product - Water Bottles
Product – Water Bottles

There is a lot to consider when choosing a product. First, of course, is whether there is a demand for this product? Will people buy? Preferably it is something that appeals to impulse buying.

Then it should be something that is not easily breakable. A product delivered in bad condition will only result in an unhappy customer. And of course, the dreaded refund.

Do Not Sell Breakable Products
Do Not Sell Breakable Products

Next, you must find a product that is of good quality. I have read so many reviews of products where people criticized the poor quality after they have received it. Do you think they will buy it again? And when other consumers read the review, do you think they will buy your product?

Most times, I have ended up choosing and selling a product with a lot of competitors. It is almost a necessary evil. A product that has low or no competitors can mean that there is no demand for it. So, naturally, you would find yourself choosing one that has high competition.

Know Your Competitors

So, with high competition, it is good to know who are your competitors. Find out how are they doing. In fact, you can find a product they are selling and sell something similar.

Know Your Competitors
Know Your Competitors

But do remember that this will mean that your product will be seen as the same as your competitors. As a result, it will be tough to market and sell it. On the upside, it is a product you know that many people are interested to buy. When there is high demand, there is a chance for you to get sales.

Some products are also sold by the big guys like Amazon. Watch out for such products. They will be very hard to sell. It would be very difficult to compete with Amazon. And it is worse if you are also selling on Amazon.

Find a Good and Reliable Supplier

When finding and choosing a supplier, be very careful and do your due diligence. Make all efforts to find a supplier who has good reputation and good record.

Most drop shipping business find suppliers from Aliexpress. And on Aliexpress there are many poor quality suppliers. Take your time to find a good and reliable one.

Also, be careful that some are not manufacturers. Some are resellers. This means that they get the products from manufacturers, and resell them to you. As such, they will charge a higher price than when you get direct from a manufacturer. Also, note that because they are not the manufacturer, they do not have control on stock supply, production lead time, and product quality.

Other things to look out for when choosing a supplier is the communication. Because many of the suppliers are from overseas, you need to make sure that you understand each other clearly. Also, look out for the speed of response. When the communication is not good or fast, move on and find another supplier.

When assessing a supplier, ask as many questions as possible to get all the facts you need. For example, ask about their production capabilities. Are they able to cope when your business grows and you need more products? Can they maintain the quality as the production and business scale?

Create Your eCommerce Store

You can do drop shipping on marketplaces like Amazon or eBay. But you will still need your own eCommerce Store. It is the best because your business will look more professional. It is good to have a website where people can see that you are a serious and legitimate business.

Ecommerce - Online Store
Ecommerce – Online Store

At the same time, they get to know of your brand and website. Having your own eCommerce store creates brand exposure and brand awareness. With a website, you get direct sales rather than on marketplaces where they get a cut. This means more profit for you.

You can choose to create your eCommerce store using Shopify or WooCommerce. Shopify simplifies the process. You can get your store up and running quickly. This is because Shopify has powerful technology and apps to handle the online sales and payment processes for you.

Online Visibility

Having a website is one thing. Being seen on the World Wide Web by Internet users is another. Just because you have a website is no guarantee that people will find it.

You will have to do digital marketing to get your store seen. For example, you need to do SEO (Search Engine Optimization) to get your website ranked on the first page of search results.

Digital Marketing Strategies
Digital Marketing Strategies

Being on the first page will get many people to click on your website. This drives traffic to your eCommerce store. And with high traffic volume, you get more people that you can convert into customers.

Another way of increasing online visibility is to do social media marketing. Social media is free, and is an excellent way to increase brand awareness and brand exposure. When people learn about your business on social media, they may visit your website. Again, this drives traffic to your website that can be converted into customers.

Build a List of Customers

Another strategy you have to do to make money with drop shipping is to do email marketing. On your eCommerce store, encourage people to join your mailing list. Build your customer base.

Then send emails to your list on a regular basis. Sell them your products. Build brand loyalty so that so that they come back and buy more stuff.

Email Marketing

Engage and Build a Relationship with Your Customers

As with any business, your drop shipping business needs to engage and build a relationship with your customers. As mentioned above, one of the strategies is to do email marketing.

Another way of engaging and building this relationship is on social media. Social media is an excellent platform where you can hear first hand from your customers what they love or hate about your products.

For products they love, encourage these fans as brand advocates. For the haters, it is a good idea to find out what they do not like. It is an opportunity to improve your product. The improve product can open your business to a whole new market.

Analyze Your Data and Optimize

Another way to improve your business is to analyze your data, and optimize your business. Do this by using Google Analytics, Facebook Insights, Facebook Analytics, and many other tools to help you look at the data and metrics. Analyze them and learn from the data so as to optimize and grow your business.

Data Analytics
Data Analytics

One of the ways is to track your conversions. For example, using Google Analytics, you can know where customer is coming from. You can follow and find out what path they took to reach your site. Also, you can see where the sale occurred. With this information, you can repeat and scale it to get more sales.

Keep running and fine tuning your campaigns. Test, test, test. Do this to optimize your campaigns and spending. Ultimately, the goal is to get more sales.

Do Not Forget to Retarget

All eCommerce stores face a common problem. And that is abandoned carts. One of the solutions is to do retargeting to recover the sales.

For example, there is a cart abandoned on your store by a customer. The customer then goes to Facebook. Your retargeting efforts will show them the product they left in the cart in their newsfeed. The promoted post can ask them if they forgot to complete the purchase? Or it can be a message to encourage them to complete the sale.

Fulfill Orders Immediately

After you have done all the above, you finally get a sale! Congratulations! Now, you must fulfill the order.

One point to note – always fulfill the order immediately! Any delay can create a negative review or cause you to lose a valued customer.

So, you need to have the fulfillment process in place. When you get a sale, you must immediately go to your supplier and order from them. You will need to pay for the item. Arrange for the product to be sent to your customer. You will need to pay for shipping.

Then take note of the tracking number. Send an email to your customer to inform them that the order is on its way, and give the tracking number to them as proof.

Your sale is complete only after your customer receives the product. And there are no issues or complaints.


The Better Alternative – Affiliate Marketing

Why Affiliate Marketing is Better Than Dropshipping?

Some people enjoy the thrill of running an eCommerce store. They love the hard work of finding and choosing products. And they love to populate products on their website, and sell them online. And they get excited when customers purchase their products. All and good for them.

Some people, just like me, prefer less work and still make lots of money. And while it is not completely passive income (what is really?), affiliate marketing comes close to it. And I do this business model to make my fortune online.


What is Affiliate Marketing?

Initially, it is almost the same process as drop shipping. First, you find your niche. Then you find the product you would like to promote. Next, you find and become an affiliate of the supplier or manufacturer of the product.

You then get an affiliate link. Use this affiliate link to promote the product. It can be done on your website or social media. When people click on affiliate link, and make a purchase, you earn a commission.

Drop shipping definitely has many advantages to it. But there are also many disadvantages, too.

Compared to private label business, there is less work to be done. Also, less time spent, and less risks.

But ultimately, I still find nothing beats the affiliate marketing business model. With affiliate marketing, you do not need to deal with suppliers, fulfillment companies, or customers. All of which can cause a lot of stress.

All said, I do find drop shipping a good option for making money online. If you like to sell products, enjoy the admin work, thrill to the logistics, and find it fun to engage with customers, then this is a good choice for you.

If not. If you are like me. Someone who enjoys a more passive way of making money, then affiliate marketing is for you.

How to Make Money with Digital Products?

For years, I have thought of selling products and make money online. Then I heard of digital products. I am sure you are here because you heard of this business opportunity, too.

One of the first digital products that I considered to sell was eBooks. Many people have asked me to write eBooks. The reason was that they followed my blogs, and they enjoyed reading about the topics I wrote.

Since then, I have found out more about digital products, and have experienced with selling them online. Today, I will share with you what are digital products, what are the types of digital products, and How to Make Money with Digital Products?


What is a Digital Product?

A digital product is basically any product that you sell online. It has no physical form, and is intangible. Examples of digital products are an app, eBook, website, a blog, plugins, video, checklists, downloadable workbooks, printables, etc

Most digital products serve a purpose. It can be to provide information to the user, to be more productive in their work, assist to make a task easier, or even to learn about a topic. They are offered on the Internet in a digital format such as .pdf, .pub, .jpg, .gif, .tif, etc.

Sometimes they are referred to as electronic goods or e-goods. Digital products can be streamed or downloaded into an electronic device.


What Is the Difference Between a Physical Product and a Digital Product?

A digital product is intangible. This means that is has no physical form. You cannot hold it in your hands. A physical product is tangible. It has a physical form, and you can hold it in your hands. You can touch it, and hold it to look at it from different angles.

Smartphone with Digital Apps
Smartphone with Digital Apps

A physical product can be displayed at a physical store. Shoppers can visit the store and take a look at it. On the other hand, a digital product is listed on online stores. But we cannot see how it works until we try it or buy it. At the most, to help make informed decisions, we read the reviews about it.

A digital product can be downloaded or streamed into an electronic device such as a computer, smartphone, tablet, etc. Physical products take up physical space. We often have to find physical storage places to keep them.

One point to note is that digital products can be produced into physical products. For example, a digital book can be printed into a physical book. But because this product started as a digital product, it is still considered that.

Print eBook into Physical Book
Print eBook into Physical Book

Having said all the differences, I would like to highlight that marketing and advertising to promote a physical product is very different from a digital product. For example, a physical product can leverage on packaging to do a one last sales pitch to convince a consumer to buy the product. A digital product would have no packaging. So, it would rely on sales pitches done on landing pages, reviews, ratings, etc.


What Are the Best Digital Products to Sell Online?

There are so many types of digital products to sell online. It all depends on your niche and expertise. And even how creative you are.

eBook

If you are a good writer, and love writing, then consider creating an eBook on a topic you are an expert in or passionate about. I have written a few eBooks. Some of which I offer as free downloads at my websites.

eBook
eBook

Blog

As a writer, you can also produce blogs. Currently, this is my choice of digital product. This website is like a blog born of my passion to write about creating passive income, and making money online.

Other Digital Publications

You can also generate reports, write newsletters, create worksheets and checklists. These are just a few examples of digital products that you can create with your writing talent.

Digital Art and Printables

If you are a designer or artist, you can create digital art to sell online. Another popular digital design product are printables. These are pieces of artwork, graphic designs or drawings that people can download and print to enjoy.

Printables
Printables

Digital Photos

Along the lines of creative work, you can also sell digital copies of your photographs. This is a great side hustle for those who love photography, and have created some really nice photos. I have some of my digital photos sold on photography sites.

Online Courses

I have created a few online courses. And this is one of the best ways to make money with digital products. One thing to note is that it takes time and effort to create this form of digital goods.

“The global online education market is projected to witness a compound annual growth rate of 10.26% during the forecast period to reach a total market size of US$286.62 billion by 2023” – Business Wire

Digital Audio Products

Audio is getting more and more popular. People like to buy audio digital products because they can listen while they do other things. For example, I see many people on the train watching a video or listening to songs.

Some could be listening to an audio book, audio course or a podcast. These are also ideal digital stuff to sell. To create a digital audio product that sounds professional, you will need to get a quality microphone.

Get a Quality Microphone for Audio and Video Digital Products
Get a Quality Microphone for Audio and Video Digital Products

To edit the recording, you can use the free audio software called Audacity. I use this software when I edit audio for my digital audio products, and also the audio for my digital video products.

Here’s a tip – you can record a digital audio version of the eBook you wrote. Digital audio books are gaining popularity year on year.

Digital Videos

Digital videos can be on any topic. The videos with high perceived value are mostly presentations and courses. With a computer with high processing power and a quality microphone, you can create digital videos just like me.

Digital Videos
Digital Videos

Presentations are the easiest to do. You can create nice Powerpoint presentations. Then create a video by using a screen recording software to talk through the points.

Another way to create interesting videos would be to invite experts to discuss a certain topic, and interview them. The experts would be literally providing the content for you.

More Digital Products

This is not the entire list of digital products you can sell online and make money. There are apps, software, and so many more digital things you can create and sell. Just think about what you would like to produce for your niche. And let the ideas turn into a digital product.


How Do You Create a Digital Product?

Find your niche

Now that you know more about a digital product, and you are ready to create one, the first thing to do is to find your niche. Of course, you would choose to be in a profitable niche. After all, you will spend a lot of time and hard work to create that great looking and valuable digital product.

When I started my first online business, I found that it was a lot harder to choose the right niche. It is such an important decision that would decide if you fail or succeed in your business venture.

Fortunately, I found an awesome training platform that helped me with this. Click on the image below to go to the site, and learn how to find your right niche.

How To Choose Your Niche Training
How To Choose Your Niche Training. Click image above to find out how?

Find a Product or Service

Next, you will need to find a product or service. This is also not so easy. You need to find one that solves a problem for people.

Just ask yourself – What problem would your potential customers in your niche face? Why would they choose you to solve it for them? How would your solution change their lives for the better?

Another way to find a product or service is to look at your competitors, and find the most successful products. Model your product or service after them. Learn from them. After all, they have succeeded.

When you are new to the business, imitation is the best form of flattery. But be careful not to copy. Take note of copyright and patent matters.

You can also use forums to find out what people need. Find the forums related to your niche. Join them. Then read and learn from the people contributing to the forum. Better still, participate and learn, too.

Create the Digital Product

You can create the digital product on your own. For example, you can write an ebook, record a podcast, or produce a video. All on your own. You will need tools and equipment to help you.

All this will require a lot of time and hard work. An alternative would be to outsource the work. Get someone who is a professional to create the digital product. This will result in less time and effort on your part. But will cost you more money.

If you have the budget, it is a good idea to outsource. You can then focus on business strategy to grow the business. You can get talents from gig platforms like Upwork, Guru, iWriter or Fiverr.


How to Make Money with a Digital Product?

When your digital product is ready, you can sell it and make money online. One of the online places you can sell it would obviously be on your website. You can use Shopify to help you create an eCommerce store. Another option is EasyDigitalDownloads that is a plugin that creates a full-fledged eCommerce store on your website.

There are digital selling platforms that help you sell your digital product to the right customers. Gumroad is one of these platforms. And like Shopify, is easy to integrate into your website.

Alternatively, you can sell your digital product on online marketplaces such as Amazon, Etsy, e-junkie or eBay. A good fit would be to sell an eBook on Amazon. Also a good fit would be to sell your printables on Etsy.

ClickBank is a marketplace that is well known for selling and buying digital goods. It is perfect for reaching out to your customers. They have an affiliate marketing program to promote your digital products.

I love affiliate marketing because I find this is one of the best ways to really create passive income. Read on to find out more about how to sell digital products with affiliate marketing.


How to Sell Digital Products with Affiliate Marketing?

Selling your own digital product can be very satisfying, and rewarding, too. After all, you are the owner and you will earn 100% of the profits. But as you have read from above, it will take a lot of time and hard work.

For me, I prefer a way that is closer to passive income. And that is with affiliate marketing.

What is Affiliate Marketing?

Affiliate marketing is simply promoting a digital product or service for a business. And when there is a sale, you earn a commission.

How to Make Money with Digital Products? – Passive Online Revenue Final Word

Passive Online Revenue Logo

I have encountered many who start their online ventures with eCommerce business selling physical products. Even I have tried selling private label products that are in the physical form.

It is not easy. There are so many aspects of the business to attend to – quality check on manufacturer, coordinating with shipping companies, regular inventory check, fulfillment of orders, and customer service.

Is it any wonder that 20% of small businesses fail in their first year? 30% in their second year? And by the fifth year, 50% of them fail?

20% of small businesses fail in their 1st year. 30% fail in the 2nd year. And 50% by the 5th year.” – Bureau of Labor Statistics

Selling digital products incur less costs. This can lower the risks. As such, you can be more successful in this venture.

I still prefer affiliate marketing, and selling digital affiliate products. The costs are less. The time and effort spent is less, too. And the returns are high. Whether you are a new or experienced entrepreneur, I recommend that you consider affiliate marketing.

Be Successful with Your Business. Learn from the Best!

How To Make Money From The Internet - Blogging is one of the ways to make lots of money online

As you create more quality and useful content, you start to gain authority. You build a following. There is a tipping point where things will progress and become much easier. When that happens, you get momentum. That is when money making opportunities happen.

You can start to generate revenue from advertisers, affiliate marketing, AdWords, promoting a product or service, and many other methods. The earning potential is vast. You can generate tens of thousands of dollars to hundreds of thousands of dollars per month.

Truth be told, it is not easy to get there. But it is possible. To be successful, it takes time and a lot of hard work. Also, your writing skill has to appeal to the readers. The most critical factor here is Time. When you look back a year from now, you will wish you started today. I know I did.

Sell Products on Your Own Online Store

Ecommerce is big and getting bigger.

Worldwide Retail Ecommerce Sales Will Reach $1.915 Trillion This Year

Double-digit growth will continue through 2020, when sales will top $4 trillion. In 2016, total retail sales across the globe will reach $22.049 trillion, up 6.0% from the previous year. eMarketer estimates sales will top $27 trillion in 2020, even as annual growth rates slow over the next few years”

eMarketer
How To Make Money From The Internet - ECommerce is huge! Trillions of dollars to be earned!

You can tap on that phenomenally huge market by building your own online store, and sell your products. It can be done by hiring a web development team, or using Shopify.

Shopify makes it easy to build your own online store. There is minimal hassle. They provide the framework, and you just create it using their tools. There is a cost involved, a monthly subscription fee for their services.

The other thing that will take up your time and effort is to find a product that sells well. This will involve sourcing for it, creating a brand, the logistics to ship it, store it, and fulfill sales order, and of course, the marketing to promote your brand and product.

Needless to say, you will need to spend time, effort and money to market your listing. An Online Marketplace listing is no guarantee that your product will be featured on their website.


Sell on Online Marketplaces

Another approach to sell things online is to leverage on Online Marketplaces. There are many of these, such as eBay, Amazon, Etsy, Qoo10, Lazada, and more.

When you sell on Online Marketplaces, you are do not really have an online store. Your products are listed on their sites. When customers make a purchase, you must fulfill it. The Online Marketplaces get a commission from each sale.

How To Make Money From The Internet - ECommerce can also be in the form of listing your products with Online Marketplaces

As you can see, this does take a lot of time and effort. This is because you are selling your product, which you need to source or produce. Then there is the cost to store the inventory. And when there is a purchase, you will need to send it to the customer.

For old, used or handcrafted items, you may not need to source or produce (except for those that you personally make). And of course, if it was yours, you already were storing it. The only other time and effort would be to pack it and send it to the customer when sold.


Sell on Classifieds

You can also sell your stuff on Classifieds such as Craigslist, Gumtree, and so on. It is usually free to join, and there are usually no commissions collected from these sites.

How To Make Money From The Internet - Classifieds

One major point of consideration is that most people now search for products on Online Marketplaces or Online Stores more than in Classifieds. I am not saying nobody does it anymore. The number is significantly less.

This method does take less time and effort. I see this more as another avenue to create awareness for your brand and product. And if you do get sales from this option, then good for you.

Fulfillment By Amazon (FBA)

This can be a lucrative online business. You source or create your own product. Then store it at Amazon. Next, create a listing to offer the product to Amazon shoppers. When someone buys, Amazon will pack it and send it to the customer.

Due to the fact that this is your own product, profits are high. The costs are production of product, shipping to Amazon for storage, storage fees by Amazon, any online advertising costs, and the FBA and commission fees.

There is also the time and effort to find products to sell or to design and create your own products. In addition, the time to do administration and managing the logistics. If you do online advertising to promote your product, which you need to do, that will also take up a lot of your time, unless you outsource it.


Write, Publish and Sell Your EBook

Have you ever dreamed of writing your own book and publishing it? To be an author, and see your creations on the bestsellers list? With the Internet, this dream can now come true.

How To Make Money From The Internet - Write a novel. Publish it online. Sell as an EBook. Make money online.

It can be fiction or non fiction as long as your writing skills are good, and people love to read what you produce. For fiction, it is all up to your imagination. For non fiction, books that teach people or help people about technical stuff can sell extremely well.

Once your book is ready, you an self publish it on platforms such as Amazon’s Kindle Direct Publishing or Apple’s iTunes Connect.

Needless to say, it will take a lot of time and effort to create that literary asset of yours. One thing you must note is that this market is saturated. So competition is strong. Yet, when you are successful, it can be a great source of income.


YouTube Videos

There are people who start a YouTube channel, post videos about themselves or around a topic. And these people are making a lot of money doing that. It was reported that YouTube star PewDiePie was earning $7.4 million in revenue.

How To Make Money From The Internet - Be a YouTube Celebrity and make millions of dollars!

For a start, you do not really need to invest in expensive video equipment. Just a video camera or camera with video recording capabilities or you can even use your smartphone to record videos. I have even seen videos with poor quality reach millions of views.

All you need to do is choose the option to monetize your videos. When your videos are viewed, and ads are played, you are on your way to earning money from this source.

How much time and effort is needed depends on how successful you want your channel and videos to be. I have seen people who just upload the videos as it was recorded, and do not make any money.

Then there are people who make a bit of effort such as add background music, edit the video, and create attractive thumbnails. As I said, it was a little bit more effort, and as such the money is a little bit more than nothing.

By now, I think you know where I am going with this. If you treat this as a business, and put in a lot of time, money and effort, you will see good returns.


Got Skill? Go Freelance

How To Make Money From The Internet - Join the Gig Economy! Go Freelance!

The trend towards gig economy is here, and growing. Businesses are looking for people with specific skills that can help their businesses to complete tasks on a part time or freelance basis. If you have any of those skills that are in demand, you can get those jobs and earn money.

Websites like Fiverr, Upwork, ODesk are where you can find these part time or freelance jobs. You will skills such as graphic design, accounting, social media, web development, SEO and so on in demand.

It takes time to be successful and make decent income with this option. You have to build a good reputation, and get great reviews. As time goes by, you will get more jobs and hence more income.

Share Your Knowledge

Your knowledge and your expertise is now in demand. There are various platforms to offer your hard earned experience with others. One of them is to create courses on sites like Udemy and SkillShare.

How To Make Money From The Internet - Teach and Share Your Knowledge

What you do is to create a curriculum based on a subject that people are eager to learn. For example, it can be a course about SEO and how to use it to Get to First Page on Google.

This approach to make money online is gaining popularity, and as a result there is more competition. But it is still a great source of income if you succeed.

It will require time and effort to think of a topic that people will need, then create the curriculum, and produce the lessons (usually in video format). If there are handouts, you will need to create those, too.

To gain prominence at the start, you will definitely need to do digital marketing to promote your courses, and of course your self as a reputable teacher with good authority.


Create Apps

The advent of mobile devices herald the rise of mobile Apps. And with that, the opportunity to make money.

How To Make Money From The Internet - Create a Successful App and be the next billionaire!

Create an app and offer it on iTunes for Apple devices and / or Play Store for Android. You generate income by charging for the app, displaying in-app ads, or charging for in-app features and upgrades.

What you need is an idea first. An idea of what service or information the app can offer, and people need. If you know how to develop the app, then you can create it on your own. Or if you don’t have any technical skills, you can hire someone to do it.

The entire process can be a significant undertaking. And when done right, it can be a great source of income for you. It will require a lot of time, money and effort upfront. Also, digital marketing to create awareness.

Selling Your Media Creations

How To Make Money From The Internet - Get Royalties from allowing others to use your creations - photos, music, illustrations, etc

Are you good at photography? Or creating videos, music or illustrations? There are sites, for example Shutterstock or iStockPhoto, where you can either sell these media or get royalties for the use of each photo, video, music or illustration.

Of course, the media must be what people need or are looking for. They must be something they can use for their marketing needs. And this means it will require you to be creative.

In addition, this takes time to build. So, you will need persistence and lots of effort to succeed.


Paid Surveys

There are companies out there in the World Wide Web who will pay people to take surveys. This is an easy way to make money online. All you have to do is sign up, and take surveys.

How To Make Money From The Internet - Do Surveys and make some money

Companies like CashbackResearch.com will pay you because they want to get valuable consumer and user data. The downside is that the money earned is not a lot.

But if you already have good full time income or you are a student, and some extra pocket money is nice to have, then this is an all right option. After all, if you are going to spend time on the Internet, why not make some money at the same time, right?


Passive Online Revenue – Final Word

As you can see from all the above options, there are lots of opportunities. Finding reputable sources to generate income is a challenge.

There are unscrupulous Internet Marketers wants to make money from you rather than help you make it. Over the years, I have seen my fair share.

How To Make Money From The Internet - Make Money OnlineNow, I have also learned that there are legitimate ways on How To Make Money from The Internet. And which are these? They are:

  • Blog – Yes! ★ #1 Recommendation ★
  • Fulfillment By Amazon (FBA) Yes!
  • Write, Publish and Sell Your EBook – Yes!
  • YouTube Videos – Yes!
  • Share Your Knowledge – Yes!
  • Design Apps – Yes!
  • Selling Your Media Creations – Yes!

At the same time, let me elaborate a little further on what I consider as passive income. Passive income is not something where you do nothing from start to finish, and expect to reap lots of money. It is usually not a get rich quick scheme.

As you have read in my explanations above, a lot of them require lots of hard work. Time and effort, and most times some money, are needed. At least in the initial stages. After the groundwork is done, the result is that there is less effort no effort to be made. Then it becomes passive income.

For example, putting up a video on YouTube requires some hard work at the start, such as recording the video, editing it, adding voice over and background music, digital marketing, and so on. But after some time, very little or no effort needs to be put in. The views continue to increase. You get passive income.

If you continually need to put in a lot of time and effort, then it is not truly passive income. Especially if you are exchanging your time and effort for money. And here are some that are not really passive income. They are still considered as a few ways to make money online. But if it is passive income you are after, these are not quite it.

  • Sell Products on Your Own Online Store
  • Sell on Online Marketplaces
  • Sell on Classifieds
  • Got Skill? Go Freelance
  • Paid Surveys

When you look at the options that I have deemed as truly opportunities to have Passive Online Revenue, you will realize that most of them require authority building. You need to build a brand that people will trust. One that they are willing to spend their money on.

Chances are, you are here to find out what are the options to make money online. Perhaps it is to have extra income to afford a better lifestyle. Perhaps it is to save for rainy days. Whatever you have planned, the idea is to get rich.

I understand. Because that is my dream, too. Consider these options, especially my ★ #1 Recommendation ★. For my wish is your dreams and mine to make money online come true.
