5 Options To Start Making Money Online

Are you looking to make a little extra money each month? Perhaps you’re looking to add to your savings or reduce your debts? Whatever your goals are there are plenty of online side hustles to explore. Here are a few neat ideas to get you feeling inspired.

1 . Affiliate marketing

Affiliate marketing works incredibly well as a source of passive income. The easiest route is setting up a blog, purchasing affiliate links, and including these in blog articles. You’ll receive a commission each time an individual makes a purchase using the blog links. Some examples of popular affiliate marketing programs include Amazon Associates, Awin, ShareASale, and ClickBank.

2. Open an online store

If you’re keen to start making money online you might consider starting up your own online store. Now it sounds like you’d need to do a whole lot of work, and put in a lot of money, yet that doesn’t have to be the case! Using a dropshipping model, it’s easy for anyone to start running an online store. 

So how does it work? Dropping shipping companies allow individuals to create an online store without holding any stock, or being involved in the delivery process. You choose the items you’ll stock, set the prices and create a website. When you make a sale the dropshipping company sends the product to the consumer, and sends you a percentage of the profit.

3. Sell stock photographs

Are you a talented photographer? Is your iPhone or your Instagram just bursting with arty pictures? If so, you might consider selling your photographs to stock photography sites. You can sell stock photographs of just about anything from feet pics on the beach to workplace scenes, interior design pictures, or animal photography. To find out what it’s all about check out stock photography websites such as Shutterstock, Pexels, or Unsplash. If you’ve got some beautiful photography, don’t be afraid to share it!

4. Start a YouTube channel

There’s plenty of money to be made on YouTube, and the first step is to define your niche. What are your talents? What kind of content would you be good at producing? Some of the most popular types of content on YouTube include gaming videos, product reviews, make-up tutorials, comedy skits, and how-to videos. You’ll need to think about your niche, and how you can ensure that your content stands out.

5. Create a podcast 

Developing a podcast can be a great way to make money online. Once you’ve created your podcast content you can start making money using affiliate marketing and ad sponsorships. The most important part is finding a theme for your podcast, with so many different brands competing, you’ll need to ensure that you stand out.

Some of these options are great for passive income, while others require you to put in a little bit of time. Once you’ve got your side-hustle going there’s every chance it could grow into something a little more full-time.
