Minting Huge Cash from the Internet
Bloggers come first – If you are to make constant money, Blogging is your best choice. Quality content and writing style is the key to a good blog. Traffic and Money are by-products. So for a start you need to build a blog and write the things that you are good at. If you are good at it, results will follow in about 3 month’s time (John Chow found glory in a months time), but usually it takes a little more time. Chief source of income for bloggers is advertising (like Google Adsense, Adbrite etc.)
Website Design – This is another potential area where you can set your foot on and dig great treasures. It takes patience, skill and time to build a good website. Everyone on the internet who wishes to have a website does not know to make it. If you are one of them, you have two options: Either you learn web design or skip this and continue reading. 🙂
Search Engine Optimization – Every website on the internet need traffic and the chief source of traffic is through Search Engines. Search Engine Optimization makes website more Search Engine friendly and gives them more traffic. SEO needs some technical know-how and if you can find time to take some extra SEO classes, you can make a living out of it.
Content Writing – If you cannot deal the technicalities of creating and maintaining a website, then you can try writing content for other websites. Mostly, product websites outsource the job of creating content and maintaining forums. You need to have good writing skills to take up this job.
Online jobs – One can find numerous online jobs on the internet like data entry jobs (beware of the fake offers!), data correction jobs and so on. If you search for such jobs, you will definitely end up at some fake website with an offer of $10,000 a week. So it’s better to find someone in the real world (maybe a friend who does such a job) and follow his way.
Selling Services – This can be a service of any kind, something at which you are good at. Like Theme Design (for Blogger or WordPress), or Theme Conversion (Blogger to WordPress to Typepad) or Language Translation of Websites, or even Paid Product Reviews. You will need a website or a blog to tell the world about your services. Keep your eyes open and opportunities will hunt you down.
Online Tuition – A high speed internet connection, a web cam and a microphone are the tools you need. There are many professional organizations that teach students through the internet mostly for the 5th to 10th graders. You will get the necessary software and orientation from them. If you are confident enough to teach some kids in the U.S, then this job is for you. Google for it and you can find them.
Online Troubleshooting – Does your friends ask you for tech guidance..? Can you help someone format a drive..? If the answers are affirmative, this job is for you. Service providers like FixYa provide online troubleshooting to its users. You can signup and download a program where you can answer questions from a pool. You get ranked by the user and your payment increases as the ranks increases.
Mobile Ad Reading Programmes – These are not like email reading programs that send you false emails with links to websites with Adsense ads. There are some companies like mGinger that pay the subscribers when they receive ads on their mobile phones. This is an easy way of earning cash; some easy coffee is always good.
Writing e-Books – If you can’t find good publishers for your write-up, you can make a PDF of it and sell it online on Amazon or eBay. If you have a blog you can use that as a medium to sell it too. You just have to provide an extract online. Users will then request an e-copy, if they like it. They can get it, when they have done the payment.
Online jobs have the benefits of comfort of home and flexible schedules. Unlike office jobs, they have almost infinite earning potential. If you know how to play it safe and do things in style, you will earn big. Don’t worry; you will learn to use your own style. Now start working. Good Luck!
