The Web offers a wide range of opportunities for making money. You can make money from your computer from the comfort and safety of your own home, whether on a full-time or part-time basis.
Whether you are simply looking to augment your income with a business on the side or jumpstart a business, the Web has become an important medium for creating awareness for your business, reaching customers, and generating sales.
As more people use the Web to find information, there are lots of opportunities to create information-filled websites that you can monetize for advertising, sponsorship or even become a launch pad for a book.
The growth of sites such as Youtube also created a massive opportunity for those who love to create videos, whether by showing ads in the videos or creating videos for other people.
Freelancing opportunities also abound for skilled professionals such as programmers, graphic designers, and many others. You can even make money by writing blogs.

Watch out though, as scams abound on the Web. There are many business opportunities such as the infamous “Google” scam (no, it’s not by Google) that tricks people into paying for nothing. Avoid get-rich-quick schemes (you won’t get rich, only the perpetrator). Some will trick you to paying a sum of money before even giving out the details of the “money making opportunity.” Other so-called earning opportunities pay so low such as online surveys that doing them is just akin to wasting your time. It is very important to read the fine print and really understand what the business opportunity program is all about.
