How to make part time earnings?
On this detailed article, I want to tell you various legit ways to earn money through Internet.
As the web is spreading around the world, "How to make money online?" became one from the often asked question. Bloggers, housewives, students and
even salaried professionals keep on looking for ways to earn money through Internet. It is good that rather than wasting time people are willing to
work harder inside their extra time and earn a couple of extra bucks to pay their bills. All you need is the proper information on how you are able to
become an online entrepreneur. Because of lack of right information on what are the neat and legal methods of making bucks from Internet, some
people get trapped in scams too.
How much can I earn online?
Before I let you know about the methods, let me place a word concerning the expected results. If you think earning online is a simple job -if you think
it is a cakewalk -you're wrong. You will have to give your very best and take your online job seriously if you wish to be successful. And how successful
could you become? Well, it all depends. Which is no rocket science to understand what it depends on! The abilities you have, the work you decide on,
how good you are in your craft and how enough time you are able to spend on work -all this affects your total sum earned -just similar to "real life"
If it can motivate you, there are lots of individuals who are earning hundreds of thousands of dollars (and even millions) from online entrepreneurship
/ profession. You will find, that as well while working alone from your home!
How to Make Money Online ?
There isn't any such indicator regarding how much you as earn. Also, in my opinion, you shouldn't try to find such information. Just focus on which you
enjoy doing and should you put in sufficient amount of time and hard-work -soon you'll being to determine the rewards. Believe me, if you don't enjoy
what you are doing -then you need to ignore success!
Now, buckle up, I am going to present a number of options before you decide to. Choose according to your taste and qualifications. Let's get… set… and go!
Obviously, it was going to be the first in my list (We are also a professional blogger after all!). Professional blogging is one of the best known method
of getting income from internet based jobs. Most of us arrive at blogs while surfing and we see advertisements on many blogs. So, we can easily know that who owns that blog is earning some dollars from writing your blog content.
How much can you earn from blogging?
There are numerous of good and free blog sites where it is simple to setup your blog. After setup, you need to talk about things that really appeal to
you. Once your blog is adequately settled (let's say if this begins to receive 100 visitors a day), then you should put online ads on it. You can use
Adzgateway for getting ads (like I actually do on TechWelkin) or you can use ad service provided by other networks like Yahoo! Media.net. WordPress.com
also provides its very own ads.
Incidentally, did you know that Google makes 95% of its revenue from advertisement? Bloggers get share out of this revenue when they publish google ads on their own blogs. I continue creating articles about how to become a successful blogger. You need to keep an eye on this content.
Skills necessary for professional blogging: Good command on language, ability to write in an interesting way, knowledge of basic coding along with other technical stuff like SEO.
With a blog with one thousand visitors each day, a blogger can from $0.5 to $30 per day. Blogging can fetch you varied sums of money depending upon the
web traffic you receive and also the monetization strategy you practice. Many people debate that using affiliate marketing model is much better than
using Adzgateway . I am inclined to disagree using this and surely the things that work for just one blog may not work with another.
Bloggers in US, UK and Canada make millions of dollars from their blogs. They are more entrepreneurial -many bloggers have actually turned their blogs
into content or media companies. Huffington Post, for instance, was only a blog and now it is one of the most influential news aggregator in the world.
Story of Mashable is also similar.
How much can you earn from Pay Per Click ?
In India, established bloggers, like Amit Agarwal, make hundreds of thousands of rupees every month. These are full time bloggers. Those who do
part-time blogging, their earnings also depends on the length of time they devote to their blogs.
Many successful bloggers and webmasters earn $100 to $500 per day with Adzgateway . Some bloggers in USA earn several thousand dollars every day from
Ppc. Earning from Ppc heavily depends on the CPC rate you get from Adzgateway . In countries like USA, Canada, UK, Australia, the CPC rate is very
high —that's why bloggers make much more money in these countries.
You can also become a theme designer for those who have good sense of design along with other required skills. When a theme is done, you can sell it
on theme stores or you can setup your personal website by which people can buy your themes. Designing themes for platforms like WordPress, Blogger,
Joomla, Drupal etc. is a lucrative business. You can generate decently income from this profession. Skills required: Web design sense, CSS, HTML,
How much can you earn from designing themes?
Usually, one copy of a theme sells anywhere between $10 to $100. So, even though you sell just one hundred copies, you may make thousands of dollars.
In case you design a personalized theme for a specific client, you can charge much more depending on the efforts you'd to set up.
Yes! you can be an online teacher. And also the great thing about it's that you can teach virtually anything. So, whatever is the skill and expertise
-you will be able to offer lessons to perspective students. SkillsShare is one such service which allows you to be a web-based teacher. Once you have
registered, you may create courses (classes) on whatever subject you know. It could range anything from cooking to mathematics to engineering to
designing to languages to whatever! There is another similar service called Udemy. On these web sites you basically sell your courses to make money
from on-line teaching service. You receive paid when a student takes the internet course developed by you. Skills required: knowledge of subject
on which you're offering course. Understanding of Photoshop and making videos can be useful because these things could make your course more
interesting and clear to see.
Become an Online Author
If you have a story to tell or if you want to share your expertise in the form of a book, well then, go ahead and write a book! What better could be there than writing a book! You don't need traditional pen and paper. Become a completely tech-savvy author. Use MS-Word to write your book. Once the book is ready, you don't even need a publisher! You can self-publish and sell e-book versions through plate forms like Amazon's Kindle, Adzgateway Play Store and Apple's app store (iBooks). If you're in India,Flipkart, Infibeam etc. are also great choices. You can sell both e-books or printed books.
Sell Designer Merchandise
Also there are online services like Lulu where you can order print copies of your book. Buyers will be able to purchase print copies right from there or you can put print copies on sale through Amazon, Flipkart, eBay etc. Pothi.com is an Indian venture that can print self-published books.
Can you draw well enough? Have you ever thought that even your drawing (or even doodling) can help you make free money online?
You can print designs, drawings or photos created by you on items like coffee cups, t-shirts, bags etc. and then sell them. A friend of mine is pretty good at making designs. She created her own adzgateway and began to sell stuff.
Become Video Publisher through YouTube Channel
I am sure you have watched more than one videos on YouTube. All internet users have! It is after all the world's largest video sharing service. But now enough of just watching.
How much can you earn from YouTube?
Create your own videos and share them with the world. What's more, you can earn money from these videos!
You can shoot small (or big!) video clips using mobile phone, handycam or professional video camera. Or you can make videos from pictures using your computer. OR you can create animated videos and tutorials. Once your video is ready, upload it on YouTube and monetize it. YouTube will show ads along with your video and share revenue with you.
A lot of people have earned great amount of money through this online work. Most of it is home-based job —but you may need to venture outside to shoot videos.
?Skills required: Know how of shooting and editing videos.
If your YouTube channel has a million subscribers, you can earn from $100,000 to $300,000 per month. Mostly it depends on how interesting your videos are. Secondly, it depends on the how many people have subscribed to your YouTube channel. The stories of Olga Kay and Mimi Ikonn will tell you that they definitely earn more than $100,000 every year from their YouTube channels. This is the minimum. No one really knows the exact amount but many sources say that they could actually be touching one million dollars every year.
Find Online Jobs of a Wide Variety
Earning huge money from YouTube sounds great. But it requires a lot of appeal, creativity and hard work. Even if you do not make millions, YouTube is a great way to make decent income.
If you're looking for providing admin or technical support to others, there are several places where you can find jobs. Just browse through them and select the one that suits you.
Become a Translator
oDesk, for example, is one such place. Clients post job details on oDesk and job seekers like you take on the work. Mostly the work involves working through computer and internet.
However, it entirely depends on the specific job. You may get work like software or web development, writing assignments, proof-reading work, business development etc. There are lots of jobs to choose from.
Other similar places are eLance and TaskRabbit. TaskRabbit also offers jobs that are not entirely online (for example, helping someone with moving their house).
Skills required: Depends on the job you select.
If you know any two languages very well, there are plenty of translation jobs available online. And they pay well. You make good money from online work of translation.
Online Transcription Jobs
Translatorsbase.com is perhaps the best website I know where you can regularly get online translation work. You will need to bid for every piece of work and if you win the bid, work is yours to do and the client pays you through the website. You can do translation work on your computer and submit the finished work through Translatorsbase.
In transcription, usually you need to listen to an audio or video and type out what was spoken in that. Or you may be asked to look at an image (like a receipt) and type out the text details visible in there. It may sound easy, but trust me this work requires patience, experience and skills. Being able to understand various accents, hand writings and thorough knowledge of the language is a must.
Affiliate Advertisement Income
Such jobs are available through oDesk, eLance etc. But Amazon Mechanical Turks is a specialized service that offers what they call "Human Intelligence Tasks". These are the tasks that computer can not do perfectly and therefore require human intervention.That intervention is what you provide!
Client offers a specific payment amount for every such job. You can decide whether you want to do that job of the offered price or not.
If you have a successful blog or website, you can also get affiliated with other vendors and show their ads on your website. If a customer sees an advert on your website and through that purchases an item from vendor's online store, you get a commission from the sale amount.
Sell Your Old (and New) Stuff
Affiliate advertisement is different from Adzgateway . You get paid from Ppc on clicks (cost per click or CPC model)… but in case of affiliate ads, you get paid only when customer really purchases the product through an advertisement on your website.
Commission Junction (now known just as CJ) is probably the best place to find affiliate ad opportunities. It is a website where you can get affiliate offers from a large number of brands and vendors. Companies like Amazon, eBay, Flipkart also run their separate affiliate programs. You can use them too. I would recommend that you select an affiliate product which is relevant to the content of your own website. Such products convert the best into real sale (and therefore into real money for you). For example, if you have a blog on books, you can show affiliate ads from Amazon showcasing only books.
There are hundreds of online services where you can easily sell your things that are no longer in use. For example, if you've an old mobile phone handset lying useless in your drawer, you can sell it on eBay or Cragilist (oh, this Craiglist thing was really useful when I was living abroad!). If you're in India you can use OLX and Quickr. These arefree classified ad websites. Almost all of them have a mobile app as well. All this makes it pretty easy to convert old and useless stuff like CDs, books, clothes, stationary, toys into money.
I wonder if you would put this under "making money online" category! Well, I certainly would!
Online Coding Jobs
If you're a programmer, you can find ad-hoc coding jobs online. Just take the project, build it, test it, submit it and get the payment. Freelancer (formerly known as Rent-a-Coder) is out there for years. It does not matter which programming language or platform you can work on, you'll find jobs for all. Freelancer website does the job of connecting programmers with clients. There are other alternatives like Guru, oDesk, eLance and TaskRabbit.
Start an Online Newsletter Magazine
Ok, I have already told you about writing a book and also about becoming a blogger. But if you don't want to post daily (as a blogger does) or sit for weeks or months to write a book —then you can opt for the fabled Middle Path; that is to say that you can serve content as a periodical.
Be Creative, Sell Online
You can start a e-newsletter (or a e-magazine) and ask people to subscribe to it for a fee. Websites like MailChimp can help you manage subscriptions and dispatch of your e-newsletter. If your newsletter has a wide reach, you may also be able to show ads in your newsletter and/or find sponsors for your newsletter.
Many websites like ArtFire and Etsy allow you to sell whatever creative you can make. Take a look at these websites and you'll be astonished at the variety of stuff people make and sell it through Internet. Larger web stores, like eBay, also allow you to make money from your creative instincts.
Lend Your Voice!
You can make interesting stuff with junk, knit wooly patterns, create funky jewellery, hand-paint vases, make stuffed toys —trust me if you try; you can really work at home and then convert it into a business with the help of the network of networks, theamazing Internet. Earning from internet is not entirely a myth after all!
Have you got a deep baritone voice? or a bubbly, chirpy one? or may be the one that has the chime and clarity of a tolling bell! If yes, you can online lend your voice as voice over artist. You can narrate stories, news and other text items. A friend of mine uses Umanoand he is pretty thrilled with the experience. You can also use VoiceBunny or Voice123for the same purpose.
Help Kids in their Studies
You would need to have a good audio recording setup at home and that's all. Just pick a job from above mentioned websites, do it by recording your narration, upload the resultant audio file. And then get paid for your work. All this can be done from your desk at home. Dreamy? Nah! it is a good reality. Come on! jump on the bandwagon ofonline professionals.
I have already mentioned SkillShare and Udemy as websites where you act a bit like a lecturer. You make courses and people buy them. But if you don't wanna get into full-fledged course development and just want to help students with their current academic issues, you're still in luck as there are several online places where you can get tuition assignments also.
Sell Photos Online
Here you can help kids with their school or homework and teach them specific subjects.Tutor.com and TutorVista.com are among such websites where you can get online tuition assignments.
Do you love photography? Do you click good enough photos? Well, if yes, you can find a buyer on websites like iStockPhoto and CreativeMarket. Don't think that your photos are not good enough. Give it a try —and you may be in for a surprise! Folks out there need all sorts of photos for publishing online and in print. So, number and variety of photos required is never enough. Go ahead and be a professional photographer!
Sell Website, Domain Name or Mobile Apps
And, by the way, if you look great… you can even sell your selfies. But first you'll have to learn how to take good selfie photos. Then try your luck (however, you must considerprivacy concerns in case of selfie.)
If you own a domain name or a website (even a defunct one!) or a mobile app… and you want to sell it off, you should visit Flippa or Sedo or GoDaddy Auctions. On these websites, you can set a base price for what you're selling and then perspective buyers bid in an auction format. Such a model maximizes your earning from selling domain name or website or mobile app.
Become an Online Website Tester
I have mentioned above about building website or a blog in order to earn money online. But it is not always that people become a successful blogger. After a point of time, most bloggers feel frustrated, just call it a day and quit. What's left behind is a constructed website and a domain name. If you have no plan to proceed further with your website or blog, you can always sell it to get money from what's left.
A word of advice here, do not get into full-time blogging from the beginning. Professional blogging is a tough nut to crack and it takes quite a bit of time before you will be able to earn enough money from blogging alone. Begin as a part-time bloggerand then later on switch to full-time.
UserTesting is a place where crowd tests websites. Webmasters and e-commerce companies hire people like you to surf their newly built or renovated website. You surf the website and provide them with the feedback. And you get paid or this! Easy, isn't it? Well, yes, it is one of the easier online jobs. But again, you need to take it seriously. The more useful feedback you can provide to the website owner, the more jobs you'll be able to find in future.
Make and Sell Music
Apart from voice-over, which I mentioned above, you can do another recording based work. If you know how to touch the right chords on a musical instrument —you should compose music and then sell it online. No need to keep running after music companies. Other companies also need music. You can compose and sell smaller tunes like jingles, ringtones and even full-songs.
Become a Guest Writer
There are online music stores where you can directly sell music MP3 files. These stores include iTunes (oh well, you already know it! don't you?), Pandora, Amazon, Spotify, Adzgateway Play etc. There are also online services which put your music in these stores on your behalf. DistroKid and loudr.fm are among the better choices.
If you're an expert in a particular field (like technology, health, cars, business development or anything else) you can write guest posts for bloggers who run profitable blogs on these subjects. Some big bloggers who make money from blogging, can pay good amount of money if you can write an authoritative post for them. You can even earn as much as $500 by writing just one article! I have written an article about what is guest blogging and how should be done.
Fill Survey Forms to Make Money Online
Remember, however easy it may sound, but you get good money from guest blogging only if you really are an expert in your field. People do not pay for mediocre guest articles.
Can you really make money by filling online survey forms? Years ago, I came across the first advertisement that was inviting people to fill online surveys and get paid in return. At that time, frankly, I thought it was a scam! Why would someone pay for a simple task as filling an online survey form?
How much can you earn from online surveys?
But later I realized that it is indeed possible to earn money by paid surveys. Research agencies and companies of all sizes need to know what public is thinking. Do you know that surveying public for their opinion is over $40 billion industry. There are several websites that act as a bridge between surveyors and the public (that is you!). These websites bring you online surveys and pay you for for filling them.
Responding to online surveys are a good way to make quick bucks.
Some of the good online survey websites are The Opinion Panel, OnePoll, Toluna,MySurvey, Vivatic, YouGov and SurveyBods. You can go and register on these websites. After registration, these websites will keep on sending you surveys. You need to fill them up and get your rewards.
How do you get paid for filling online surveys? Well, most of these websites offer you vouchers of popular online stores. You can redeem these vouchers and buy anything of your liking from these stores. Some websites also pay you in cash via PayPal.
You should fill these surveys with honesty. Don't take these polls just as a money making exercise. Read all the questions carefully and then enter your frank opinion.
Usually you can earn to the tunes of $2 per survey. Filling online surveys does not pay handsome money —it is just good for earning some extra bucks. Companies involved in online surveys pay very little amounts and in many cases they don't pay cash. When you will open an account and fill surveys, these companies will award you points. When you earn a certain number of reward points, you can get an equivalent gift (and sometimes cash).
How to Receive Payment from Online Business ?
Once you have become an online entrepreneur and have setup your online business, one of the major concern becomes how to receive payment from your clients. Well, most of the services I mentioned above do pay via easy options like PayPal, checks and wire transfer. PayPal is indeed a blessing for online entrepreneurs. You can very easily send to and receive money from your clients. Functioning of PayPal is straightforward and totally hassle free.
In case you have decided to setup your own website and you're selling products or services through it, then you would need a payment gateway service. Payment gateways are services that facilitates online payments.If you use a payment gateway, you'll be able to accept payment from your customers through credit cards, debit cards, cash cards and net banking etc. You would need to give payment gateway provider a percentage of every transaction. Best payment gateways in USA are PayPal, Amazon Payment and Skrill. Best payment gateways in India include Citrus Pay, CCAvenue etc.
