10 Ways to Make Money on the Web

January 2, 2012 | By | 24 Replies More

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.

Here are 10 ways you can earn money on the Web:

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.

    Hello there! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog. Is it difficult to set up your own blog? I’m not very technical but I can figure things out pretty quick. I’m thinking about creating my own but I’m not sure where to start. Do you have any ideas or suggestions?

    Many thanks

    Great post with lots of valid ideas for how to make money on the web. We often hire freelancers to do work for us primarily using odesk. It’s a great site that allows you to set your own price for your services (versus some sites that set your price for you like Fiver). There are some super talented people out there, and we could join their ranks.

    Great article! There is so much garbage to sift through out there! Once you find something that works, put some effort into it! So many people are quick to call something a scam just because it doesn’t make them rich in a few weeks. Success is not made in 1-3 months. Really good perspective here

    I completely agree with what you said about reading the fine print. When looking to make money online, it’s important to know exactly what you are getting into. One thing I’ve found is that making money online comes down to finding the right system more than anything else. Definitely, that is a key: find the right system for you!

    There are lots of good points in this article and in my experience a lot of online entrepreneurs are involved in two or more of these businesses, since they do overlap in many circumstances. You might make money online with a blog, but also earn commissions from affiliate marketing and/or advertising on your site for example.

    Great compilation of information by the author. Affiliate marketing is an ongoing learning process. You will make mistakes when you start, however learning from your mistakes in an invaluable experience. Learn from your mistakes, and make sure you don’t do it again.

    On the other hand, affiliate marketing has been around for a while; nevertheless there is space for mistakes, specially for newbies that do not do the homework of research to find the right tools, mentors, software, programs, etc.

    Search and you will find.

    Stay Focused,

    Best of luck. God Bless

    Great advice. If you’re running a business from home, make sure you have space set aside for a small office in your home. It’s also important to make sure you have the right tools, like a computer, copier, printer, scanner, and fax machine if need be.
